I'm pretty sure the supporters of these teams will see it differently, as I said, factually there's nothing to back up your opinion. 

These teams will also strengthen in January, usually forgotten by some of our support. 

The only team I think we are better than is St Johnstone. All the other teams you mention, including us, are very much of a similar standard, not very good. 

Our home form does give us some hope but to balance that we are stinking away from home, hence we are in the bottom part of the league.  

We need someone who can score goals, someone who gets into a position to score goals and I think Obika could be a great foil for a player like this. 

I think they will be above all of Livi, SMFC, Hamilton and RC come the end of the season.

Not sure there is much factually to back your argument either btw ?

Goody thought Obika was outstanding leading the line. You clearly know better in every aspect t when it comes to football management !!!

Surely by now most fans can see the folly in not bringing in a striker who is actually scoring at a good rate now, and not in his distant past?

Since the last quarter of Ross's tenure we have struggled for goals ( guess which guy called Mullen was in then). Ffs it ain't rocket science to then make it a priority to pay to bring in someone who could help get us points!
Obika and Mullen were poor again yesterday, it was only the pressure our midfield put on that created the chances for our goals.
I cant see us getting that amount of good possession in midfield against Hibs, and possibly up to the break.
Livi and Hamilton don't allow it, we can hope the fakes are still a bit pish. We need and have done for three years a real currently performing striker, or we'll just keep slipping back.

Leading the line? What happened to sticking it in the onion bag? That's what we need to survive. Four teams now joint bottom.

And when the games in hand are played out, we could be a point off top 6. We’re starting to bang in more goals than we were early on, six goals in five games including an away trip to the champions. Obika had a good game yesterday, that’s why he was given the Saints MOTM.

Your overwhelming necessity to be negative is very clear today.

We could be but do you think we will be?

There's always room to be positive with a dash or reality.

Our next 2 games are against Hibs and Aberdeen, how many points do you think we'll get from these games?

I'll go first, zero.

Need to beat Hibs and the other results are outside our control. Given Hibs season and our home form, I don't see it being unreasonable to think we have a chance. We've also already beat Aberdeen and today game showed they're far from invincible. 

My point was more that particular poster has room for little to no positivity regarding the club he "supports" Seems you're of a similar vein with such a prediction.

I'm a realist not a blind fool.

You, as usual, have danced around my question, how many points do you think we'll get from the next 2 games?

Do you actually watch football, other teams?

Really? 

I get 6 goals scored in 6 games, oh, we conceded 11.

This is typical of you trying to "positive" and fighting the bad "negative" people.

Tell you what, let's make a points prediction for the next 9 games and loser leaves the forum?

In the last five games, two at home, three away (to three top six clubs from last season) we have scored six goals. Not bad going IMO. 

My view is there is always the usual suspects where everything is doom and gloom. If there was a finer balance I wouldn’t comment on it but you can set your watch by that particular individual finding something to be negative about, even after a massive result for us. 

Tell you what, let’s not. Point predictions are different from having hope & positivity that we can get results in tough games. Something you clearly don’t understand.

I would personally be delighted with three points & think it’s very doable. I ‘think’ we are capable of winning both but realistically don’t ‘think’ We will. I’m not in the habit of making blind predictions though because we are obviously the underdog & very certainly could come away with nothing.

Your ‘blind fool’ comment clearly shows you’re incapable of understanding the differences on the above.

Nice of you to offer to put this long standing account, that’s obviously the only one you have up as a bet though 😂

Your now saying the last 5 games, but we played Celtic, the champions, 6 games ago? (your original quote was "six goals in five games including an away trip to the champions", what exactly are you trying to say? 

Yet again, are you blind to the fact we conceded 11 goals in the last 6 games? 

You clearly don't have the clarity to see the whole picture, blind fool is quite common amongst narrow minded supporters.

As for your continual attempts to bring somebody else into this, shows you're playing to the crowd.

Excellent "whataboutery", so many words, committing to not a lot.

Running scared from my realistic view against your "I'm Mr positive" about everything twaddle which would show I'm not "negative" (Christ you love a small tedious selection of words) but I can see the likelihood of where our team will be after the next 9 games.

You playing the "I'm great, your all bad" game shows your limitations.

I've no intention of getting lost in your never ending ability to repeat your unswerving view which continually shows you are not capable of acknowledging other viewpoints.

Thanks for playing.

St Johnstone, Killie, Celtic, Hearts & Ross County from what I can tell have been our last five games. Am I missing one in there? If so I will stand corrected (unlike others I have no issue with someone pointing out where I’ve gotten something wrong, are you the same?)

Yet again, are you blind to the fact we conceded 11 goals in the last 6 games? 

Im not blind to Our recent form at all. I’m not saying it’s all sunshine & rainbows, I know we’ve still lost three in four games, including a gubbing against Hearts. I’m taking positives in our improved goalscoring & home record. I also take positives in our year on year results. 

You clearly don't have the clarity to see the whole picture, blind fool is quite common amongst narrow minded supporters.

you clearly don’t have the capacity to separate out positivity and still understand our shortcomings this season. I haven’t once said or hinted that I am completely happy with the season to date, I feel we should be doing a bit better. Good effort but wrong. 

As for your continual attempts to bring somebody else into this, shows you're playing to the crowd.

That doesn’t make any sense, it was relevant to my earlier comments. 

Excellent "whataboutery", so many words, committing to not a lot.

You’re the one that tried to push me into a prediction for future games, I was explaining my take on your point. 

Running scared from my realistic view against your "I'm Mr positive" about everything twaddle which would show I'm not "negative" (Christ you love a small tedious selection of words) but I can see the likelihood of where our team will be after the next 9 games.

Your view is pretty realistic given we are playing two better teams on paper, no denying that & certainly no running scared of it. You yet again display a lack of understanding around positivity & optimism. Realism doesn’t mean you have to lose optimism. 

You playing the "I'm great, your all bad" game shows your limitations.

Is that supposed to be a quote, where did I say that? 

I've no intention of getting lost in your never ending ability to repeat your unswerving view which continually shows you are not capable of acknowledging other viewpoints.

I completely acknowledge your viewpoint & your right to have it, doesn’t mean I have to agree with it. And it doesn’t stop me pointing out the sheer miserable negativity in having no hope or optimism we can get results in our next two fixtures. 

Thanks for playing. 

No bother, it’s decent banter

It's very sad but it's not down to individual/ small groups of posters. 

Nah... its down to tits.

Certainly a major use for the internet...

FFS, are you being deliberately dim?

The team you forgot that we played in the last 6 games.

Your carer deserves a wage rise. 

Off to work, have a nice night. 

😂😂 are you serious? Last six isn’t a set in stone form comparable. I accurately said how many goals we have scored in our last five games & you bring in the game before. Ridiculous.
