68/69 was 1 LC game followed by 11 League games.

This season's run of 9 games comprises 2 LC then 1 League then 2 LC followed by 4 League games (a total of 5 consecutive League games) although I see Soccerbase have put our two 3-0 defeats in their original dates spoiling both sequences. :boo:

That was league games

Our run is made up with league cup games against lower league teams

Not the same

Is there a run that’s made up of league and cup games that surpasses it in the last 50 years?
If so, when?

 

In fairness I doubt there’s been another season ever when we’ve had 4 cup games in a 9 game sequence, all against lower league teams.
The run is excellent but really don’t think we can compare it to any other season.

Well there has. Last season was one of them 🤣

Going through the league cup group stage unbeaten itself was an achievement given our record in that competition since we won it.

The fact we have also went five unbeaten against top flight teams at the same time, and four of those games were against teams who finished in the top five last year, is quite something.

It’s a remarkable run of form and the management and players deserve full credit.

A quite remarkable position given our well documented off field issues.

 

I think it's down to determination which comes down to management team and making players believe they can do it.

We look more balanced albeit in the striker department. I agree with dipping back into the irish league or maybe a loan deal from say english championship club, most who are loaned out in January are going to be moved on so it's a good chance to put themselves in shop window either for another club or even a contract with us.

Top 6 Tony must be getting excited. :lol:

When you consider that we had a COVID afflicted squad, were signing keepers on the morning of matches and other similar madness and we’ve have had off field issues gift two of our rivals three nil wins against us... and we are STILL not in the bottom two, you are right I’m very pleased with that.
If you miss me that much you always reach out on Pie and Bovril and twitter. Came back here to get that question answered, which I did, thanks HSS... see the forum hasn’t changed at all in my absence. Will let you get back to it 🤣

It's a good run, I'm happy with it - in the top division I reckon the best since GM's team that had a run of 4 victories just before we left Love St. in Dec 2008 (1 draw & 4 wins) before that you'd have to go back to the early 80s.

Remember these names?

6/12/08 Falkirk Falkirk Stadium 2–1 4,828 Hamilton, Wyness
13/12/08 Inverness CT Love Street 2–0 3,364 Dorman, Brady
20/12/08 Kilmarnock Rugby Park 1–0 5,183 Dorman
27/12/08 Hamilton Love Street 1–0 4,794 Dargo
3/01/09 Motherwell Love Street 0–0 10,189

 

Anyway lang may the current run continue...

Covid afflicted squad, like other teams you mean? 😂

The goalie situation, massive red herring, thanks for highlighting it. 😜

I don't miss you, it's just plainly obvious you only post on here when we're winning.
