We have made a good start to the season..not great, and there is definitely room for improvement, but considering the tough Euro schedule which has definitely taken it's toll on the squad we have done quite well.2 points up again on last season, and a great chance to put another couple of points up at Dundee.
Do you think the gunts draw with Livi was down to them not having a hulking big striker to hoof the ball at? I suspect the answer is yes and if that is the case teams will realise this and target Ikpeazu [sp] he doesn't seem to have much calmness about him and he like a foul. Its what we will need to do when we play them.Gunts start is interesting....6 games 5 wins 11 goals for 2 against but strip out the Hamilton and St Mirren thumpings and you have 4 games which produced 3 goals in total.
So far it's been 3 1-0 wins and a 0-0 draw - 4 clean sheets - but it suggests that they haven't fundamentally changed from their 7 clean sheets in a row from last season which included 3 or 4 0-0 draws. It's a big ask to string a run together on that kind of format, and the next few games will be interesting to see what they do against Aberdeen, Huns and ourselves who may quite happily allow them ball and hit them on the break.
Actually if I'm honest it doesn't sound interesting to me - it sounds mind numbing.
Would also like to see that wee c**t Naismith smashed properly, too.Do you think the gunts draw with Livi was down to them not having a hulking big striker to hoof the ball at?

Seriously think with the signings we've made especially Milligin and Mallin, we can challenge top 3 or better , no problemThe four upcoming games last season we took 2 points. We could definitely improve on the Hamilton result, and anything we take from the other three games hurts them.
Bizarrely last season we had two defeats at home to Hamilton and Huns, and two draws at Parkhead and Tynecastle.I'm not confident of taking anything from either ground.
I think we would have (referee allowing) had a decent chance of taking 4 or 6 points if we'd got them early doors, and I still think we will do the The Huns but the Smellies are getting their act together, Griffiths is scoring freely again and the Gunts are always difficult at the PBS.Bizarrely last season we had two defeats at home to Hamilton and Huns, and two draws at Parkhead and Tynecastle.
I don't think we'll take points from all the games, but, I'd also be surprised if we didn't take any from any of them. Given Huns and Celtic's stuttering start to the season its perhaps unfortunate that we didn't play them earlier.
