The 'Race for 3rd'

Is he the big thug who commentators describe as “loves a challenge” invariably 30 seconds before he gets sent off?  Without Arse cheek protection he’s going nowhere.

Ignore me.  Was thinking of Porteous.

Hibs will be the team to catch for our coveted 3rd place

Certainly got the attack for it it seems. Unlike our toothless directionless accumulation of dross

Their defence is & always has been, utter shite.

They're better going forward than us (who isn’t?) but I’d question how consistent they’ll be over 38 games.

They'll probably Hibs it by October. 

But they could be 12 or 15 points ahead of us by the time we play next so we'll be playing catch up with them for months.

To be fair Hibs have done well but if we had the first 3 fixtures they had I would expect 9 points also, lets see how they get on against the Cheeks before getting carried away

I wouldn't be at all confident of us picking up full points from matches at Livi and the DABS

So long as you score more than you let in who cares ?

Aye, they’ve started well, but I’ll hang fire before jumping on the Hibs bandwagon though.

I’d have been reasonably confident we’d have finished above them (don’t we always?!) in a normal season.

Now that we’re playing catch up & will be rusty as fuck when we do restart, then will be cramming games in later on, I’m not so sure now.

I see they have brought through an 18 year old left back who looks promising.  

Why are other clubs able to develop their own left backs and we seem unable?

We have one that could get the opportunity.

But McInnes insists on persisting with a slow & cumbersome centre half at left back.

McInnes is sabotaging the dons so that his beloved rangers have a better chance of stopping 10 in a row

 

plain to see. He's a disgusting specimen

Is it maybe because he isn't good enough?

Mcinnes has given plenty of opportunities to youth last season

The 2 rosses,  wright, mclennan, Anderson 

None of them really grabbed the chance 

I am still convinced Wright is a player but there is just something that needs fixed

You dont score the hat trick he did against thistle unless you have something

Absolute disaster of a start to the season for us . We are going to have to put together a good run of wins when if we do get started . The soul 8 have got a lot to answer for

A civilised & non sarcastic reply.

You make a good point, I’m sure I read other than Accies we fielded more home grown players last season than any other, & as you say, how many have nailed a place down?

I’m just fed up of us having to go back to Considine.
We got a glimpse of what it would be like having a good left back with Lowe, & to a lesser extent, Leigh.

I’d like the lad MacKenzie to get a chance and if he’s not up to it then fine.

Assume top 6 get Europe next season if 1 of the top 4 teams win the cups? 
 

Champions: UCL 3QR
Runners-up: UCL 2QR
Cup winners: UEL 3QR
3rd, 4th: UEFA Europa Conference League 2QR

Winning the cup would be better than being 3rd or 4th as it would get us into the Europa League not the new competition so theoretically we could finish anywhere below 2nd (although obviously that would be better)

If say hibs finished second and won a cup that europa place would go to the third place position surely and the rest trickle down with potentially the top 6 all qualifying for Europe I think if the cup comps are won by the top 4 teams. 
 

Chance of being in Europe for a little longer but in all honesty we are normally knocked out by teams that would be in conference format anyway...

I don’t think we need to be worrying about the first three words.
