Tough but doable we have to improve our away form though.

For me it all comes down to the game up in Aberdeen, if we win then it is easily doable if they win we are looking at finishing 3rd

Need to beat the sheep away but Kilmarnock away just as important. Can't afford anymore dropped points and just hope Aberdeen slip up.

Need to win every game to stand a chance IMO.

They still have to play the scum twice so if we can get at least a win and draw against the sheep then it's doable

Aye but we'll need to go to Pittodrie and beat them, and hope Dundee or St Johnstone can take something off them. 

Going into the split 2/3 points behind, it's doable as we need to play them again in the split.

Need to beat them twice, which will be tough.

I also have a feeling that the SFA are going to do us over this season and send us to Pittodrie three times in the season.

Fully depends on whether PC can instil a fighting mentality into the players. There was visible improvement in both attacking movement and defensive shape against Hamilton which is good news. The main problem is that this squad of players have been found wanting when put under pressure. While the lack of clear insight and direction from MW other than "do plan A better" takes a portion of the blame, it still doesn't excuse the spineless personal performances by many of the players. We have two games against the sheep still to come, so it is a realistic target. I just won't get my hopes up until I see major improvements against a side that press us high up the pitch and give us a game that a poor Hamilton side couldn't.

The scum will have a dilemma. Lie down to the sheep to stop us getting 2nd or to stay unbeaten

Put money on the scum lying down to the sheepshaggers to ensure we finish 3rd

Just once. They've already played them 3 times.

Should have leathered them up at their dump the last game, we have a far better organised team this time around, i fancy us for both games.

Once is enough, we play them before they play them in the split, beat them gaps down to 5 could be less as they'll drop points, always do at this stage of the season, taigs beat them that's another 3 points dropped and we play them again at Ibrox should be another 3 points dropped.

I think we will. A run from now to the end of the season which included finishing 2nd and winning the Scottish cup would really salvage our season and give us great confidence going into next season when hopefully we've strengthened. Not that I'm being greedy. :lol:

Do-able but not in our own hands regrettably. Aberdeen are on fire too and won't drop many points. From our point of view the international break has come at the right time to break up their rhythm. All we can do is win our remaining games and hope they lose one additional one. I have a feeling we have turned a corner and can beat them home and away and take 3 points from Celtic. I have a sneaky feeling that am erratic |Hearts just might take points off them at Tynecastle. I'm not sure we can overhaul their goal difference so another point needs to come from somewhere.

If (and it's a massive if) ICT can put a stop to their current home record, the sheep will crumble

I wouldn't put money on it.

If we win the next 4 then we'll be in a good position because the sheep have some tough games there and will drops points.

If we can't win the next 4 then we don't deserve it.

No Chance. They have records to aim for. However, they not be able to take their foot off the gas if the title is already won. There's a part of me wants them to win it now for that reason. They'll start to drop points once it's won and we can close the gap and win second with the gap at under 21 points as well as win the Scottish Cup. This reminds me just a bit of when big Eck came in. Look what happened in his first full season.
