  1. Hope you stuck a few quid on this, well called. Pleasing win. Thought the missed chances in the first half would come back to bite us in the arse as per but kept ploughing on in the second half, and subs who came on kept things consistent. Guthrie and Nouble up top once the former is fully fit could be some laugh.
  2. Our record against Hearts is absolutely dismal. The first half of Wednesday was horrific, so some form of reaction to that would be a decent starting point. Not expecting much all considered, so 2-0 to the visitors.
  3. Fair to say this is the biggest game at Almondvale since we came back up? Pretty much do or die stuff in the 90 minutes, which is a bit of a novelty for us in the league over the past few years. Tough one to call lineup-wise, for as much as the likes of Forrest's and Omeonga's performance levels have dipped slightly in the last month or so, the alternatives either haven't set the heather alight recently (Bailley) or played at all (McMillan). We've also seen it before that when everyone does turn up and is at it, we've been at our best (Hibs away, Dundee away). Third game this season we've distributed out tickets to the community, and we've drawn 1-1 the previous encounters. Going to go for a Livingston win, but wins for Hibs and Ross County and us to lose out on GD.
  4. County probably due a win against us, the three games to date this season have been probably the tightest we’ve played. Our win up there in October was as jammy as we’ve been, will happily take that again. 2-0 County but wouldn’t be shocked with something outrageous like a 4-4 playing out.
  5. Would imagine McMillan will drop to RB in Devlin’s absence, with Pittman possibly coming into start in the midfield in that instance. Coming away with anything here would be a welcome boost heading into the break, we’ve been nothing short of fire at Fir Park since we came back up so not holding my breath.
  6. Being linked with a loan move for Jamie Walker in the EEN, this morning. Do we need any more wide players? No, for me.
  7. Goes without saying, but this a massive game for us. First home match of the season against a team which, more than likely, will be in the bottom six along with ourselves, so the vast majority of the excuses wheeled out over the last two matches won’t wash. Expecting a big performance but I’m not so sure we will deliver one. Taking a bit of hope from the game earlier in the season where we should’ve really had the game wrapped up before we gifted St Mirren essentially an open goal to equalise, but wouldn’t say we’ve kicked on since then and the Maureens have come into a bit of form. 0-2.
  8. Winning games like these against mid table sides last season gave us a good springboard to finish relatively comfortably, so hoping for more of the same off the back of this afternoon's result. Never doubt Shinnie as a false nine for a second. Another Martindale masterclass.
  9. Either going to end up 1-0 to us, or 7/8-0 to Celtic. There is no in between.
  10. Think we'll definitely be the happier of the two sides coming out with a point after that. Dundee had some great chances, fair shakes to Stryjek for continuing to look the part this season (Aberdeen howler aside). Save from Anderson in the first half and his claw off the line from the deflected Griffiths shot were both superb. Our style of play really needs to change though - actually felt for Bruce Anderson yesterday, ball constantly shelled up in his general direction for the 60 or so minutes he was on with not much else beyond that. Definitely a good player in there but we're not playing to his strengths, nor indeed those of anyone else in the team. The shift to 4-3-3 this season has our midfielders about 40 yards away from our forwards which is fucking hopeless, and dire to watch. The two aren't compatible and I'm a bit fearful that won't change any time soon. Reckon Dundee will be fine once Griffiths finds his shooting boots, and I imagine they'll comfortably stay up unless McPake continues with batshit tactical ploys like punting Cummings out wide instead of just pairing him up front with Griffiths.
  11. Efe every second week would probably be preferable to the alternative at the mo. Which is saying something.
  12. That’s big Efe signed for St Johnstone. Would’ve took him in a heartbeat.
