if we won our game in hand there was only 10 point in it with two games against them. 25 point still to play for. It was 100% winnable. I've seen them lost that advantage before.
Pretty sure we were 10 points behind going into the split one year and still won it. ( We may have had a game in hand IIRC)
It was unlikely considering our form, but stranger things have happened.
For us to not even get the chance to see what would have happened is pretty shit. Nowhere near as shit as what has happened to Hearts and a few others though.
