Tricky first 3 away games. 4 points minimum from those 3.

Opening game potentially moved to Sunday if dons get through Europa. 

Otherwise it's the same kick off time as Cove Rangers v Edinburgh City.

 

The Police up here won't be used to multiple SPFL matches starting at the same time so could see how they react as well.

Tricky one, Cove v Edinburgh is a big flashpoint in the calendar.

Anyone got our form guide for our last 10 SPL games please? I heard it was 1 win.

For info, that first game of the season will be a SUNDAY. Aberdeen most likely to advance in Europe, pretty sure they have a tie on the Thursday if they are in the next round

 

Just had a look to see what else could move...up to the round of 32 for the Europa League.

 

As you say the Aberdeen opener looks near certain to move. If Celtic end up in the Europa League Play Off round then the away tie with them on the 22nd August moves to a Sunday.

 

Much less likely is the home game versus Killie on the 3rd October (EL Matchday 2) and an outside chance Rangers away on 28th November (EL Matchday 5) needing changed.

 

No other Europa League match dates clash with Scottish sides in Europe (for us!).

 

As reported before the Europa League does not clash with the League Cup semi finals this year with over a week between the ties.

Doesnt matter to me.  Fact is, we always have to play these fixtures at some point.  Anything more than 6 points from the 1st 4 will represent a good start.  Performance have to be good.  High octane.

What makes you think that?

 

we have only added the one player - a defender who might not even play much if Berra and Souttar start...

The tougher games are spread apart, Keep the injury list down and return Tynie into a fortress once again,  then the only problem is how we do on the road, and stop dropping stupid points, but we need to be attacking

what's with 2 home games in a row and 2 away games in a row in the first half of the season.

computer have a meltdown there 

You do realise that if every team just alternated between home and away each game, you'd only get to play half of the league?

JKB, with your font of knowledge...when would Cat A games normally go on sale to general arseholes like me?

 

In this case, the Rangers match?

 

Fanx.

Hoping for 30. Celtic away is the only game where we should not expect 3 points.

Are those the "about ten games" you've suddenly remembered you went to last year after a year of not going or caring?

Not sure. As of season coming games only on Sky Sports. No BT sport for the season coming.

I thought the joint Sky/BT deal covered the coming season, then it was Sky only from the following season. Could be wrong of course, it happened once before!!!!

 

Edit: already confirmed by others!

How many times have our away games to County been midweek? 

 

Other than that, no complaints. Good to get Aberdeen and Celtic away out the way early. 

 

My take too. Quite happy with those opening fixtures. Got to play them sometime, may as well be while their new players are bedding in like ours.

This thread is drowning in negativity. 30 points from the first 10 games folks. No belief at all!

We don’t though - with 3 full rounds of games we’ll always play some teams twice away from home.

 

So each season is not the same nor is each season fixture list completely balanced.

 

Also you will know that post split, if we are in the top 6, there is every chance that we have to play Celtic or Aberdeen away from home 3 times in a season.

 

You couldn’t actually make it up.

 

Has an impact on is financially as well.

 

Only one derby and one Celtic game guaranteed at home. Outside of that we only have Aberdeen once and they bring the 4th biggest support to Tynie.

 

So we have been shat on a bit this season IMO. Playing and financial disadvantages.

Yep, set the bar at impossible then there is huge scope to mouth off continuously.

Impossible for losers maybe.

 

Aberdeen away, Hibs away and Rangers at home are hard games but definitely games we should be looking to take 3 points from and not look at a draw as a great result, the rest we should be beating with ease, UNLESS 6th is our target again.

 

I also understand football is not as simple as that and poor results happen now and again, but we had and accepted far too many poor results last season.

To be unbeaten in 8 of our first 11 games is a high target but much more realistic and still ambitious. So a target of 21 to 24 points from our first 10 games would have us in the top 3 easily.

 

I’d then like to be unbeaten in 9 of our second 11 games as the fixtures are arguably more favourable - so something like 23-27 points in the second round, again a high but achievable target.

 

44-51 points going into the last round of games would have us placed very nicely IMO.

 

Celtic will drop more points this season thanks last and Rangers will continue to drop points. Aberdeen are plateauing at best. Killie and Hibs - complete Unknown’s but don’t look particularly dangerous over the season.
