    Celtic win 2-0. Should have been about 5-1. No idea why this was on at 3.30 in the afternoon.

    Seen the brief highlights, it did look like they should have hammered them, including a penalty miss.

    First goal was a beauty right enough.

    We proved we could outscore them last season in the LC at home. We were the only team last season in Scotland to beat Rangers over 90minutes. I agree that we will probably need 2 or 3 goals. My fear is that JG reverts to the usual league tactics against the OF and sets in to defend then counter. Hopefully we can have a real go at them. It’s a free shot. Most pundits and bookies will expect us to get humped. Gerintaethem. 

    Aye, we did indeed, probably the best result we've had against them for many a year but for some balance.................

    We didn't score in the other 3 games we played them, conceding 8.

    That puts some context into the game coming up.

    Scotland managed 4 wins on the bounce. If we do it too we are being sponsored by Carlsberg.

    Don't get me wrong, they are not firing on all cylinders but we have leaked the 3rd most goals in the league so far. (6 in one bad game I know)

    Morelos also has a habit against us but hope he continues to fire blanks for this game..

    Can we win this yes, but we will need to be on it all over the park, keep 11 players on, and take our chances...

    C O Y S

    The last six games, since the thumping against Celtic, we have only conceded 6 goals, including 3 clean sheets. 

    I think to win this game we'll need to score 2 or 3 as Rangers have scored in every league game bar one. (first game of the season against Dundee Utd).

    2nd last game before the split. Will this game be a decider for a top 6, or even better a European place?

     

    These questions need to be answered. emoji848.png

     

    Disappointed you didn't start a thread about the last game before the split................................rascal will be fizzing you've beaten him to this game. :lol:

    Newcastle 1-3 Spurs, the new owner must be having regrets already. :lol:

    Newcastle 2-3 Spurs, late OG gave a wee bit of hope to 10 man Newcastle but to no avail.

    Probably Bruce's last game as manager, the league table doesn't look good, could be in dire straights by the time they get any chance to sign some new players, unless the new manager manages to lift them out of the relegation places.

    Party atmosphere well and truly gone..............

    Newcastle 1-2 Spurs, Kane get's off the mark. 

    Tight offside decision, VAR rightly said onside.

    Newcastle 1-1 Spurs, didn't last long, 17 mins.

    Bruce was interviewed before the game, came across very well, professional and great dignity.

    Newcastle v Spurs today at 4:30

    Interesting to see how the takeover of Newcastle develops.

    Poor Steve Bruce, well, not exactly poor after he receives millions for getting the sack, has had to "struggle" with little, or no real support, from the departing owner.

    Add in he's got the face of a bad boxer and he's not having a great time.

    Wonder who'll be next in the hot seat, whoever it is they better hit the ground running, them Saudis won't tolerate failure. :rolleyes:

    New owner and various chums in the crowd, atmosphere off the scale.

    Any & Dec sitting just in front of the new owners.

    😀😀😀😀😀

    I'm not saying we'll win them all😀. But, as i said they are winnable. I think winning 4 or 5 of them isn't out the question. 

    Having said that, we'll probably pick up 2 points and I'll be moaning again😀

    You said "really winnable", I checked with Bet365, they said I could have any odds I liked. 😂

    Of course!!! 

    Any game outwith the Old firm should be considered winnable. 

    Don't you agree? 

    You do know this is a St Mirren forum?

    Anyhow, just to humour you, in theory, aye, but, unless you're off your head extremely unlikely we would win the next 7 or 8 games. 😂

    I'm fact I'll say we won't. 😜

    Now, no more drinking, it's the Sabbath.

  13. I wonder who, or what organisation, will be brave enough to totally drop the continuing mask wearing fiasco? 

    Out for a meal last Friday, you get to the door, put on a mask to walk the 20 yards to the table and take it off.

    Eat meal, put the damn mask back on to walk the same 20 yards to the door then take it off.

    Gies piece, someone somewhere make the decision.

    I would be happy with a point from this, but why not go out believing we can win it. We are playing some decent stuff and hard to beat. 

    Looking at the fixtures after the Rangers game, we have about 7 or 8 really winable games. We could be in a really good position by Xmas all going well. Let's start by putting the Govan mob to the sword. 

    Really? :blink:

    Got to be looking forward to this game, we've not only been winning games, we've played some really good stuff over the last 4 games.

    The point we gained against Hibs has seen the confidence grow and we're scoring goals.

    The recovery after the thrashing from Celtic says a lot about the manager and players, could easily have crumbled but since then we're undefeated over 6 games.

    At this point we're a generous 8/1 to win this, 3/1 to draw. :rolleyes:

    Both teams to score is 21/20, just saying. :zipit
