Initially I thought this was gross over-reaction because it’s probably five points in reality and two thirds of the season to go. However, there are two factors which explain their (apparently premature) implosion.
Firstly they have enjoyed unchallenged success for so long, they’ve forgotten what competition is. Even when we looked like giving them a run for their money, we blew it and the SFA/SPFL awarded them a freebie just in case we recovered. So now a Rangers team dares to disrupt their idyllic reign, they are struggling to cope. I truly believe the longer the time at the top, the more traumatic the fall. Ha fucking ha.
The other factor is the OF games. If you put aside the fact that both teams will win most weeks, their best hope of clawing back our lead is through the derbies. But the recent matches have been embarrassingly one sided and they know they’ve no hope of getting two wins in the remaining three matches.
If we both continue as we are, they will truly erupt after a New Year victory for us.
I’m enjoying their pain but I think this is still only the support act. The real timplosion has not even got started yet.
If we qualify, will the last 32 be in january/feb?
If so we are goin to have a hard run january/feb. With them out of Europe and solely being allowed to concentrate on the league.
1-0 Gers tomoro then get the rest in which could be pivotal when approaching xmas/new year
