You said one against the Champions, Celtic game was 6th game, oh dear, you are a walloper. 

No it wasn't. 

Ross County 23/11

Hearts 09/11

Celtic 30/10

Kilmarnock 26/10

St Johnstone 19/10

Feel free to stand corrected at any time you see fit. An apology for the walloper comment would also be welcomed.

My bad, misunderstood your point.

Got to go, wood to cut.

You're still a walloper, no doubt about it.

First national quarter final since 2013 👏

Highest league position at this stage in a season since 2014 👏

First double figure return from a striker in a top flight season since 2014 (and it’s only February) 👏

What a job Jim and Lee have done so far.  We’re very lucky to have them.

We reached the SC quarters in 2016-17 and the Challenge Cup final in 2017-18

Six points and two clean sheets from our first three games. What a start! Two of those games against two of last seasons top five aswell.

What a job Jim has done. That’s us won three of our last four games one nil, you don’t do that at this level unless you’re a seriously well organised and well coached team.

Question for the stattos... when did we last have six or more points after three games of a top flight campaign?

We started the 2006/2007 season with two wins if I remember correctly. We beat ICT 2-1 Away and then beat Motherwell 2-0 at Home. Going to Parkhead for Game Three we were Top of the League.

I'm trying to forget what happened during the rest of that season.

We shit-fested our way to 2 wins in about 5 months before turning it around right at the death.

5-1 defeats to Celtic and Hibs were particularly memorable as well as that gut churning 1-0 home defeat to Dunfermline with a few games to go.

Mind you, we had the 1-0 Tynecastle win, the 2-0 win away at Falkirk and then the Motherwell win which will never be forgotten.

I remember a memorable win at Tannadice near the end of the season. Sunday Mail awarded Kirk B.roadfoot 10/10, probably the best game of his career

He was a good manager for us but he had become stale & predictable by the end of his tenure.

IIRC after a good "first quarter" in 06/07 the knives started to appear for GM in Autumn 2006 when results started to falter - staying up that season with the obvious disparity in budgets was probably his greatest achievement for us.

What about the double winning promotion in 2006? Keeping us up in 2004? Our first cup final in 33 years?

Gus turned us from a club who spent most of its time in the second tier - one top flight season in the 15 years prior to us winning the league in 2006 - to a club who now spends most of its time in the top flight. Just three second tier campaigns in the last 14 years.

What an improvement.

23 years! I'm old enough as it is without folk slipping an extra decade in there!

My opinion is staying up in 2006/07 in a division where we clearly had the smallest budget (remember Carl Finnegan?) and the dogfight against Dunfermline who essentially bankrupted themselves in an attempt to stay up (remember Stephen Kenny & Adam Hammill?) as GMs greatest task. 

PS - Your memory of 2003/04 is unreliable we were in 7th position - 9 pts ahead of Ayr when GM was appointed we were never in any danger of relegation. Coughlin was just keeping the seat warm for GM after the latter was brought to the club.

Carl Finnegan ?   :unsure:

A Newcastle reserve forward that Falkirk snatched under our noses at the end of the Jan 2007 transfer window, he went on to have an underwhelming career - my point is that we were the financial minnows of the division that season and staying up was more impressive than promotion the season before.
