Our pre-split fixtures

 

Aberdeen (A)

Gretna (H)

Celtic (A)

Motherwell (A)

Rangers (H)

Inverness (A)

St Mirren (A)

Falkirk (H)

Dundee Utd (H)

 

My most optimistic projection would see us pick up around 14 points from these 9 fixtures (which is what we actually acheived in the corresponding fixtures from the first quarter). We are 8 points behind 6th place at the moment.

 

Given how poor the current squad is, I don't even think the appointment of a competent manager would propel us to a top six finish.

 

So we lose our record of being the only non-OF team to always finish in the top six since the inception of the SPL but (probably) gain a final derby of the season.

Does it really matter where we finnish as long as it's not bottom as we are not going to get into europe and the money between 6 and 7th is it really that much more ?

I suspect we'll need at least 21 points from these 10 games which I don't think is possible the way things are at the moment.

Financially - probably not. But from the perspective of restoring some pride - yes.

 

That said, this is by far the best supported, best paid Hearts team ever to find themselves in a relegation battle. Anything less than 3rd place is a disgrace.

Not unless we get a RB, LB, CB attacking CM, Cover for LM and RM for when chesney and Andy are out. We also need a top class striker who can play with Velicka

 

.......Untill then we have no chance. We also need a manger but everyone knows we will not get that until at the very earliest after the transfer window.

It's really quite an interesting equation for which no doubt someone who is into Maths would enjoy pumping out an algorithm. We are only eight ponts out of sixth place so it is a possibility.Aberdeen are only nine points ahead, and Motherwell 11. If we beat Aberdeen on Saturday then the gap is reduced to six to them - so it really matters. We beat Aberdeen and we are back on track for the top six. We lose or draw at Pittodrie and I would doubt we will be playing in the top six this season.

 

I'll go for a win on Saturay and a top six finnish.

No chance! We'll finish 10th at best with all the new promises of a new manager and quality players by the start of next season! "The Heart and soul of a chancer" should be our slogan for next year. I predict very few renewing season tickets either for next season!!

22 points - it is achievable, I'd guess we need 42 points to get to the top six, that is 18 points to collect out of 27 available.

No. Realistically we need to win 6 or 7 of those 9 games. I think my predictions are bordering on the optimistic side.

We also have an away game at Killie before the split.

 

These calculations are very approximate but I figure these are the points that the 6th placed team in the league had at the split.

 

2000/01 Dundee 41

2001/02 Dunfermline Athletic 43

2002/03 Dundee 42

2003/04 Motherwell 45

2004/05 Motherwell 43

2005/06 Aberdeen 48

2006/07 Hibernian 44

 

So in all likelihood between 41 and 48 points (17 to 24 to go) are needed to reach the top six, it'll probably be closer to 48 because there are so many teams close together in mid table. The 3rd placed team has not had less than 61 points since the 38 team league was introduced (37 points to go).

Its too late for us now.

 

To have a realistic chance we needed to pick up a good few points over Xmas with games like Falkirk away and ICT & St Mirren at home.

 

The fact we took zero from them means we will finish bottom 6.

 

The shame of it.

We will languish in 11th spot......

 

Similar feeling Dexter, we will either finish one place above bottom, or if we do move up at all the highest I can see us achieving is 9th in all honesty.

Right folks read the above post, and take on board the damage that a mixture of whisky, water and hard drugs can do to you.

 

(Drop the 20, and I suspect you are a lot closer to what our current form suggests is achievable. I think we will pick up points versus Gretna and somebody else, not convinced we will win either of them, but we are playing rank rotten at the moment, the win versus Hibs has possibly clouded that fact.)

There wa a similar post about 1 or 2 months ago & i said we would get into the top 6. Since then i have changed my mind, we are just not good enough to be in top 6. I thought we would get a good result & kick off on a wee run but are too inconsistant & have a "manager" that is not up2 the job

Unless we pick up three points tomorrow - no chance. Even then it would take a herculean effort to get us into that position.

As I said on another thread, with Frail/Romanov managing and the current squad (plus Maybury) relegation battle with Gretna is very likely.

The SPL average for the split is 44 points and this has to be our target. A few weeks ago it was looking as though 47 points would be required. However, the mid table sides have not picked up a lot of points in recent weeks so it looks as though 44 points will be enough to see you over the line..

 

10 games....20 points. Apart from an OK run in October/early November we have done nothing this season to suggest we will even get close to this total.

 

However, 6 points from the next two; Aberdeen away and Gretna at home puts us right back in the pack and would mean teams round about the split mark would have to look at our results as well each week.
