Only bookie up with prices so far is Paddy - and their Betfair fixed-odds arm.

Went up late last week.

11/4 Arabs - nibbled at, after being 3/1 first show. Fair price. 

7/2 the Dee - again nibbled, were 4/1 on Monday. Again a fair price.

7/2 Partick - sliding out from 3/1. Still look very short.

6/1 Ayr - opened 5/1, so drifting.  Pass me that barge pole.

13/2  I.C.T. - opened 5/1, so walking a mite. At least a fair price.

9/1 Pars - opened 8/1. Can't be on at those odds.

18/1 'Ra 'Ton - 20/1 this morning, so someone's had £5 on. Not for me, but stranger things happen.

25/1 Q.o.S - not moved. Awful price.

25/1 Lichties - put in at 20/1, same price as Hearts & Hibs are for the League Cup! 

50/1 Alloa - put in at 40/1. No value at double that.

That will be very close... but you've got the top two the wrong way round, for reasons I can't quite work out...

Pretty much agree with this assessment.

Trying to see past my own bias (ha) I like United at any price over 2/1. We'll benefit from the stability we haven't had the last 3 summers and starting pre season needing 2 or 3 players rather than 10 has to be beneficial.

Patrick will improve but no by enough to mount a serious challenge. I quite like a couple of Mortons signings and if Hopkirk can recreate the team spirit and work ethic of his Livi side they'd be my dark horses.

Don't much fancy Dunfermline under Crawford although I'm impressed by his commitment to signing every player he can possibly get his hands on. Feel like Inverness might be a bit weaker this year but quite hard to judge them at the mo. Either way they finished 9 points behind United last season and I don't see them turning that round. 

Ayr undoubtedly weaker and them, Alloa, Arbroath & QotS my bottom 4.

Leaves Dundee as the great unknown. Manager in his first ever job and a squad needing a big overhaul. Maybe they'll get it right, maybe no. At the moment I think they've made playoff level signings but if they can keep a couple of their better players injury free then who knows.

Still way to early to predict where we will be - we're at least 6 or 7 players short IMHO.

Looks like most have the same 4teams at the top. End with those 4 in alphabetical order, and things will be just fine.

My prediction, which come next May will be held up as a shining example of how wrong a person can be is :

 

Partick - 76 points - Just got a sneaky suspicion

Dundee - 74 points - Probably beat Hamilton in the play off final, after drubbing their city rivals in the play-off semis

Inverness - 57 points - Always there or there abouts.

Dundee United - 55 points -  Ultimate Championship bottle merchants, but will definitely make the play offs

Dunfermline - 48 points-  Can't be as bad as last year...right?

Ayr - 44 points -  Can't be as good as last year...right?

Morton - 41 points - Impressive manager appointment, but ultimately won't be great.

Alloa - 33 points - Do enough to rattle the big boys again. New manager appointment will be someone designed to wind up opposition fans (Come home PH)

Arbroath - 31 points -  Dick Dastardly's agricultural style of football will rattle the big boys. Will beat Raith and then Falkirk in the play offs

Queen of the South - 16 points -Doomed. Dobbie's hamstring to ping by September and that will be that folks.

Our one man team finishes bottom but your one man team, now without said man, finishes 5th? Calling bias here.

The difference being, Ayr will still have some quality in their squad. Queens have absolutely nothing apart from Dobbie.

If that comes true, you will never need to buy a pint in the good half of Dundee again!!

We were never a one man team though.

We are certainly lacking at the moment but Holt would get a game at any side in this division.

, aye neither are we.

I assume you never ever visit Palmerston? You're just a sadcase who comes on here to constantly slate the club aye?

Aye Dobbie wont know what to do without Dykes. I heard Dykes was always on the other end of the phone when Dobbie was down in England for tips and advice.

I'd have Harvie over Holt but I thought Harvie was probably our best player in the last few months of the season and the best LB in the league in that period.

Shankland was obviously our main man but we were guilty of trying to play everything through him which made us utterly predictable. In the second half of the season I thought Doohan, Harvie, Smith and Murdoch were all far better for us than Shankland.
