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.

I fucking hope you are right :tu:

Aberdeen can only throw 2nd away. Whats the significance of 2nd anyway? Being 30 points behind the taigs at the end of the season is humiliating. Our actual league position isnt relevant. Winning the SC is more of a priority for me rather than finishing ahead of Dolly.

Second place means 1 less qualifier in the EL. However, agree about the SC - silverware for us and fucks up their treble -again.

Fancy us to beat the sheep twice & for them to get beat by the tarriers & possibly slip up at St Johnstone! 

On that basis we should be good enough to take 2nd, key game being us vs then at Pittodrie!

If we beat them twice we finish second. They'll bottle it.

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

An absolute no brainer surely :lol:

I don't know if this is true? 2nd and 3rd last season started at same stage in Europa this season?

Next to no chance imo.

Tims goal diff +58

Sheep              +29

RANGERS       +   9

Embarrassing statistics. 

Pedro won't be able to get the clinical goalscorer we lack till next season,we may outplay every team we play till end of season but missed chances will put us 3rd. Waghorn in particular will fluff his lines at the important moments and Dodoo, who's more of a finisher imo , has played too little to have an impact.

We are were we are. If we take 2nd place now it will be likely to be as much down to Aberdeens mistakes as much as our own performances. What I think we should be focusing on is simply winning every game we play and in particular focusing effort on the Cup. What we cannot afford to do is let St Johnstone or Hearts close up. Achieving European Football next year should be the minimum aspiration for the rest of the Season.

New manager changes things, show a bit of optimism

If thats the case then i wouldnt bust a gut to be 2nd. SC and league victory over taigs and 3rd place would be fine.

Need to win at Pittordrie, they will drop more points but so will we, the games against the sheep are six pointers.

Sorry Bob but I wouldn't be happy finishing below Aberdeen. No reason we can't do both.

If we don't get second, fine move on. But this has to be the last season that we ever accept such mediocrity.

3rd place for me.  I think we will narrow the gap but not bridge it.  It's all about the new manager using the rest of the season to full assess what we need for next year.

Would be great if we could secure the cup though!

It will be very difficult and we will have to take it one game at a time. Keep winning and we have a chance, drop points and we are looking at third.

Winning the cup would help a lot if we do not make 2nd.  :cup:

Fucking right the players should be busting a gut to get second, and I expect Pedro to drum that into them.   Anything less than 100% in every game between now and the end of the season is unacceptable, if we fall short and finish 3rd then it's not the end of the world but the supporters who pay good money to watch the team week in week out and make sacrifices to be there deserve nothing less than the players busting a gut for the cause. It's not like they had been doing that for MW, now is the time for them to step up and prove they deserve to be here.  IMO of course.

If Pedro keeps the team focussed I really think 2nd will take care of itself tbh. The sheep are pish and they'll keep dropping points.

But the Cup is a must for this season - Some silverware for the shite we've put up with on and off the park, and more importantly the joy of fucking up their treble once again. :UK:

It's alright saying beat the sheep twice and what not but beating them twice is irrelevant if we can't win the others which include Celtic at ibrox and potentially we could be away at hearts and the sheep post split.  So it's going to be tough.

ill just take it one game at a time

You are aware they've won 15 from their last 17 games?

The one good thing is the sheep were chasing the scum hard last season and then just fell apart as the finish got near. Pressure maybe?
