    I do. I think it will be unnecessarily close though, it shouldn't be the case.

    Still, we have time to sign some players ourselves and we still need to bed Julien and boli in to our backline.

    Rest assured if we do it it will be done the hard way.

    At this rate we will be lucky to win 8.

    It's the first time since the run started that I am genuinely nervous.

    But yes.

    Still feel we have the edge. But the negativity has to stop soon. Right now we(the fans and the management and board) are our own worst enemy.

    A voted aye coz a believe we have the quality to beat every team in the league when we are at our best with everyone available and playing to their Peak.

    However, I’m not supremely confident given some of what I’ve seen so far. Some heavy wins early in the league have been promising but those have been peppered wae everything else that has went wrong to date and what still isn’t right with the squad depth, especially in defence and in goal.

    If we get key injuries we very well may be *.

    If we don’t sign full backs and maybe another CB, we could be *. Kinda tied to the point above.

    If our manager tries some of his ‘wonder’ tactics in tough games, we’ll drop points.

    If we go out of Europe all together and lose to the huns in a couple of weeks. It could be irreparable. * forbid!

    Few positive signings and yes , if we get a first choice LB a back up RB/CB a CDM and maybe a striker , also if lennon realises morgan is not the answer and goes between sinclair and johnson for LW and forrest and shved for RW

    Yes. By a bigger margin than last year.

    We're in a period of uncertainty which won't be resolved until September 2nd when our European fate, League fate and squad fate are all known...

    2 votes for no! Behave yourselves ffs!!

    I voted yes however this year is going to very frustrating but well win it in the last week or two. Rangers will push us all the way with very dodgey refereeing decisions yet again!

    As for the 2 who voted No, it doesn't bare thinking about it if the awful where to happen! There will be uproar and season tickets next season would take a huge hit I'd suspect!

    If we sort the defence out and play our best players rather than lennys favourites then yes.

    If we fail in the above then obviously no but in the more short term I believe we will get beaten over the 2 legs against AIK. Ibrox could be a hiding aswell depending on who is playing

    What I will say is 2 weeks today we will know the shape of our squad and what competitions we are playing in but i fear it could be too late by then in terms of the fans being onside with the club it could be full blown war of attrition

    The only team that will stop us winning 9 in a row are ourselves.

    We still have the best squad (albeit with obvious weak areas) - if we have the hunger to show that, we win 9 in a row.

    We have the finances to blow the rest of the competition out of the water - if we utilise that to strengthen our squad, we in 9 in a row.

    If we fail to do either or both of the above then we leave it to chance, if there is even the faintest whiff of a title race then the officials will be clambering over themselves to make 'honest mistakes'.

    Everything is still within our own hands, the next 2 weeks will be give us a better idea.

    I think
    I think if he goes between forrest sinclair shved and johnson i would expect all 4 to get 10+ goals this season as well as numerous assists each. Sinclairs not been at his best last 2 seasons but still has scored a lot a goals and some important ones at that , forrest has that knack also when some games u start to think that jamesy of old is back and he pops up with a goal . Goalscorers are hard to find and there is not one attribute i could find that makes morgan look better than sinclair. Johnson is pitching in with goals also but sometimes i think he could maybe try simple things a bit more and maybe bulk up a bit. Shved is the one i am most excited about this boy i think goven the chance would make us a fortune.

    Voted yes. Huge games against Hearts and Sevco to come. Big questions on how we cope at their midden. We have lost a lot of experience in Boyata and Lustig. Big test indeed.

    Best ask this question after the transfer window is closed.
