  1. Ross County 3 points behind the play-off spot, but with a massive win against Dundee last weekend, they have renewed hope. County went into last weekends fixtures with a feeling that if they lost, they were dead and buried. It's funny what a difference a 1-4 mauling can do for one's confidence. Partick Thistle The team that has hovered in the 'danger zone' for the longest period this season. A team that was crippled by injury and don't look up to much, despite having much the same squad as last season which stormed into the top 6. Hamilton Accies Currently keeping Partick Thistle out of the play-off spot, but have 2 games in hand. Rumours of admin abound though. Will this be the season they run out of luck? Dundee FC Stop start season for Dundee. Top 6 budget, woefully underperforming. Lost Jack Hendry and Scott Allan on deadline day, remains to be seen whether we can kick on without them. It's going to be particularly hard to utilise our playstyle without Hendry to lead from the back. A 1-4 defeat by the bottom club sparks fears. St Johnstone A team in freefall currently. A strong start to the season has left them in a position more comfortable than their form suggests. Still 2 games in hand over a lot of the sides below them, but look ever increasingly like getting dragged into the battle. I'd like to say Kilmarnock and Motherwell are just about safe now (Unless Killie lose Steve Clarke so won't include them in this.)
  2. Quick Question Thread

    I've certainly put myself on the hot spot.
  3. There's a lot of truth in that. Your first sentence anyways. Over the past 11 years, you lot have undoubtedly been our competitive rivals. We've had relegation battles and 2 quite fantastic promotion battles which has led to a 'spark' whenever we play each other.
  4. Quick Question Thread

    I've been trying to go on a nostalgia trip. I've been watching a lot of films I enjoyed when I was young and I'm a bit of an avid dvd collector. (I have a room set-up like an old Blockbusters - it's sad I know). Anyways - I've been trying to hunt down a childhood favourite - Song of the South. It's largely been banned due to it being rather racist which is fair enough tbf. I'd love to own a copy of it though as I loved it as a child and it's one of the very few missing from my old Disney collection (Clearly a child racist IMO). Anyone know if it's available anywhere?!

    Wasn't today supposed to be the end of the world?
  6. I might be wrong, but I don't think the Premiership Forum has a thread for this? If we do, I'll happily close the thread. I know the Championship has one that thrives only too well due to some shocking journalism. The inspiration behind this thread came from BBC Sport's online report of Celtic's game against Stjarnan yesterday by Chris McLaughlin. Former Motherwell keeper, Gunnar Nielsen was playing for Celtic's opposition and here are McLaughlin's attempts at spelling his name, throughout the report: Neilsen Nielson (Twice) Neilson And then finally, in the listing of the line-ups he got it spot on with Nielsen. Surely at the top level, that's unacceptable? The fact that he kept changing the spelling throughout has to be some sort of in-joke? Here's a link to the article: Link. Anyways, feel free to chip in with your own examples as and when you find them!

    Screams of lazy journalism to me. They'll have been watching AJLS and the Tele have also picked a random sellable talent they could have looked at. Also, there's not a chance that Wighton would go to Shrewsbury next season.
  8. All things Dundee FC

    Considering how stubborn he is, I can't see it. He better not, as it's took me about a season and half to finally start buying into the c**t.
  9. You mean, like you done? We're getting into tit for tat here and ruining the last page or so of St Johnstone related material, so we'll have to agree to disagree. I don't think he's very good, you do, fair enough.
  10. AJLS will never, ever be a lone target man. Think poor man's Paul Heffernan.
  11. Calm down Simon. A squad with our budget can't afford 4 genuine top quality strikers, hence how I said he'd be a decent squad player. Championship is quite clearly his level. Marcus Haber scoring the same amount in half the time tells you all you need to know really.
  12. I would have every single one of those strikers ahead of Murray. I don't see your point? Having watched him pretty much every week since January I can confidently say, he's not top flight quality. He'd be a decent squad striker, but nothing more.
  13. Don't get me wrong, if we keep him, I won't be crying into my pillow either. He's much easier on the eye than AJLS is for example, who likes to go hiding when he's not scoring. To his credit, Murray never hides and always runs at defenders. I think I've said this before, but I think AJLS would be perfect in a St Johnstone team.

    Moussa is definitely coming on. He's certainly got better, of that there is no doubt. I still wouldn't like him leading the line for us next season though. We need a complete clearout of our strikers for next season. I'd have previously kept Haber, but he and McCann aren't getting on, which led to him being a lazy c**t on the pitch, so punt the lot. New strikeforce please.
  15. Exactly this. Most United fans weren't too upset to see him leave and most Hibs fans were horrified to see him come in. If we look at league totals: Sofien Moussa has 7 goals in 25 league games. (20 starts) AJLS has 6 in 27 league games (Only 14 of which were starts.) Simon Murray has 8 in 32 league games. (26 of which were starts and 22 were for Hibs a much more creative force than Dundee) Marcus Haber has 2 in 11 games. So like for like, Murray's record for Dundee is closest to Haber. Haber has a goal every 284 minutes for Dundee this season. Murray has a goal every 405 minutes for Dundee this season. If you lot want to argue over him, I'm sure Dundee fans wouldn't mind if you went to Hibs and took him for next season.
  16. Is it? What's laughable about it? He done very well at Arbroath. Meh at United. Done well in the Championship. Earned a move to Hibs that was quite a surprise to most and got offloaded out. We've better than Murray already at the club in AJLS and have had considerably better in the past such as Hemmings, Stewart. Hell, even the likes of Clarkson and Heffernan had better strike rates. He's a nuisance that works hard. So is Sofien Moussa. Neither are very good football players though.

  18. It's only a matter of time you'd imagine, Pedro has taken Rangers to new depths and well, it's time for the next thread. The only way he won't be going is if Rangers can't afford to let him go. Usual list of realistic targets and no hopers. Some of the list is compiled of people that Paddy Power reckons are favourites (Jol, Freedman and Sherwood). I tried scouring Rangers Media to see who they'd want but they think they can get Pulis, Allardyce, Mark Hughes or Ranieri so just left them to it.

    What the f**k was with that camerawork there?!
  20. Sportscene Watch 17/18

    Have to say, Partick Thistle's pitch looks glorious.
  21. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    It seems a bit apt that the game that defines whether Raith win the title or not, is Barry Smith's former club. Well done lads, wish you all the best next week.
