For a lot of stick that Campbell gets for team selection, tactics and substitutions on a number of Saturdays. (which still may be hovering occasionally) You certainly can't argue at the way he builds a great team spirit and work ethic that pick up the amount of points we have done recently following our poor early start.

Another few points clear of Alloa at the moment another big one next week then 2 tough ones after that. See how we are sitting then then I’ll think about us maybe pushing up higher than 8th.
Lot of teams have games in hand, but a win on Saturday could see us 4th if results went our way.

It will be interesting to hear if Allan Johnston is quite so dismissive of the Lichties this time. Maybe a wee bit more respectful?

Am happy for Mikey McKenna for getting his goal. He covers so much ground during a game. Shutting down, backtracking, tackling, pushing forward. He never stops. Top player.

There will be some mixed feelings around Angus at Leagues 1 and 2 restarting but not the Highland and Lowland Leagues.

Rearranged Scottish Cup game with Falkirk to be played on the 23rd of March. We really shouldn’t be losing that.

If you do lose it you deserve liquidated.

We are woeful and the loudest sound at Gayfield that day will be all our stiff joints cracking and popping.

Dick will give fringe players game time. The “reward” of playing Celtic with no gate money is not much incentive.

We don’t have any fringe players really? Everyone capable of earning a start. And Celtic away in the Scottish Cups still a huge incentive, could easily be on TV.

Not scared at all. But not the same incentive without a crowd and a big payday. It’ll be on Premier Sport. Do we get any extra money for that? Fringe players? We have Pigniatello, Davidson, Whatley, Moore and Gallagher.

Davidson is injured. Whatley and Gallagher haven’t had much of a chance tbf. 
 

And of course you’d get extra cash for being on TV? Not like the league is it?

 

Plus the incentive of Celtic at Celtic Park is huge for the players and DC too. Doesn’t come around often.

So, now Leagues 1 & 2 are restarting, what points target would we need to avoid the 9th playoff spot (which is Dick C’s stated objective)? I think most seasons, 40 points usually just about means safety (so probably 30 points+ in the current curtailed season) so that would be a minimum of a point a game equivalent until the end of the season.

For those ‘glass half full’ types, I think we would need maybe 40 points to entertain wild dreams of a promotion playoff slot (ie double our tally till now).
