Time to revise my opinion if scores stay as they are with St Johnstone beating RC and Hamilton Accies beating Hearts. A 4 way fight and some fight it is going to be. The Hearts game next week was always going to be a biggie and it certainly is. The game in Dingwall in April also looks big. My hotel is booked! 

Most people that know anything about football seen it as a 4 way battle some time ago. :lol:

That's your opinion. It wasn't mine until today. Well done the Perth Saints. Makes next week's game and the Ross County ones not to miss. Looking forward to them.

Indeed, an opinion based on many factors, mainly an improvement in form from St Johnstone and the form of other teams. 

Your opinion is based on the voices in your head.

Clueless. :1eye

It didn't need to be an opinion just look at the bigger picture.

The same as the relegation battle 12th place is only a 3 Horse race(Ross County will not finish 12th Guaranteed) but 11th is a 4 horse race.

I have been saying for weeks County will not finish bottom as despite their terrible run, if County lost every match until end of season for the bottom 3 to ALL OVERTAKE COUNTY they would ALL need to win anything from 2/3/4 games each out of 12 and that will never happen.

That is same reason St Johnstone were safe 2 weeks ago too.

Sad little person.. I hesitate to call you a man. Your ego is much larger than your abilities justify. Opinions are what they are, whether yours, mine or anyone else.

I see your reasoning Ronnie.

Just going by previous years experience too sometimes when it's only a 2 horse race teams can overtake a big gap.

Ross County's saving grace is 3 teams worse than them 1 maybe 2 could produce an amazing upturn in results but all 3 impossible.

Even on our good run to end of last season the 10 match unbeaten run had alot of draws and ultimately we still couldn't catch Hamilton.

St J had a terrible early season and have lost a bundle of goals as their GD shows. My thought process was that their previous defensive frailties might return to haunt them. They haven't.

Do we really need to go onto other clubs websites, I occasionally view the club specific threads on P&B and the moans are pretty generic to all clubs - surprise, surprise!

****************

Anyway my take on the situation 

  • Ross County - Looked safe-ish pre-split (above the Fakes & closer to 5th than 12th) so Uncle Roy didn't really open his wallet, maybe wishes he had now.
  • Us - In better shape than last season, but need to dig out a coupla big wins at some point or else knickers will be wet & fingernails will be bitten.
  • Hamilton - It gets harder for a club their size season on season, I've a feeling this will be their season for the drop but their ability to win games when they score first might save them - but hopefully not. 
  • Hearts - On paper have the ability to finish 9th but as we know the game is played on grass :red or astroturf - lang may their troubles continue.

Probably the best outcome for us today!

More so as we all play each other after the split

I hope its hamilton who go down. Worst support along with Livingston. 
Same.
I expected, Hearts, to improve and slowly pull away, however, they appear to be a complete shambles.
Thankfully, they can't play, The Rangers, every week.

Hearst are down. 3 wins in 27... more pressure more expectation more fans and certainly a damn site more of a wage bill. Naismith 10k and the rest. Big clubs go down. Just check out last 7 years...

 

Who? :rolleyes:

I'll take a rain check on this next Friday night. :wink:

A big week coming up for us. A win in the cup would be a massive confidence boost ahead of arguably our most important game of the season to date on Friday. 

Confident of 2 wins this week for us.

Both games if on - Saints win 2-1

We’re honestly not a million miles away from a few wins in a row.

Yes, we are. :lol:

PS Just done a calculation, we're 999,999 miles away so you're correct.
