 6th

Bold prediction... If we beat Ayr on Saturday, which I think we will, the other fixtures should yield results that will see us climb to 6th.

Even getting off the bottom next week would be some lift. The season started today. Big Yogi will sort them oot.

Would show how poor the bottom of the Championship really is.

We have been rank rotten and could be mid table with 2 wins.

I love that logic; the bottom team beating the team that was second shows how poor the bottom half of the league is.

Big big win today, when did we last win in Inverness? totally unexpected.

A draw would have been an optimistic result on current form.

Climb the table in the next month and then look up.

Makes me wonder where we would be at the moment if Yogi was hired in the summer. He is a much more competent manager than Grant and I am excited to see where we end up. The optimist in me can see us sneaking a play off spot with a decent transfer window and a boost in self confidence. Our next 3 games are very winnable.

Would love this to happen, and love the optimism. I think we should stay realistic however. First half today was shocking, 2nd half shows what we are capable of. Long road ahead to turn around our fortunes, today was only the first step. COYP

If the 2nd half was due to Yogi going to the dressing room at half time the logical conclusion is that if he was there at the start we would have performed better in the first half.
Well, today was excellent but let`s not get too excited. Let`s see what happens next week but the team will undoubtedly have more confidence and be energised. Now they know they can win. Fitba is about confidence.

Transfer window? Recruitment? To me that’s the sort of talk that makes agents money. Or excites fans who are easily excitable. Who thinks there is a magic money tree of footballers all wanting to come to EEP? What is the point of shuffling a pack of players whose ability is much of a s muchness come January?

If Yogi Hughes is a good manager, which I think he probably is, then he will be able to make the most of what we have already. McCann and Graham already seem to have been rehabilitated. It’s not about recruitment; it’s about making the best of what we already have. If Hughes can win three games between now and the end of the year then, and only then, can he demand a transfer budget. If not, he is little better than Grant.

Don`t believe what I`m reading here, first win of the season against a team that has been a bit off colour in their past few games and we`ve got the next two games won already. OK it was good to get the win but even the most optimistic of players or managers take ONE GAME AT A TIME.

To suggest Graham is rehabilitated after 10 minutes as a sub is quite frankly crazy.

Who knows but it’ll take far more then that to make comments like that stand up

The new manager effect with Yogi popping into dressing room at half time had the desired effect, but saying players who have been rotten are now better is a bit premature , hopefully when Yogi gets a few sessions and a few inspirational team talks under his belt we will be in a better position to assess what were effectively Grants duds , hopefully onwards and upwards.

For example, who would have thought that QotS could have taken a point at Arbroath yesterday ?

Me
I think any team in this league can take points off any of the others but it is likely that Partick will beat Hamilton and Raith will beat Morton. I defy anyone on here to bet on Hamilton or Morton wins in these games.

So like I said, IF we win and other games go as the form suggests then we will be 6th.

I reckon that Partick, Killie and Raith are the top three (no particular order) we showed yesterday that ICT are beatable, and Arbroath are losing Nouble in January.





We're finishing fourth, winning the playoffs and Lewis McCann is taking Leishs Mantle as the last man to score a winner at Ibrox, next season.

That`s hardly a great example. QOS didn`t win so we gained two points on them. We also gained two points on Arbroath by the way!

Vee, you have the knack of sucking every ounce of positivity from any optimistic post on here. Is this your approach to life in general or do you just reserve it for the Pars? If it is, you must be fun to be around.
