    12 games in, 13 points dropped.


    The majority of this team/squad haven’t been in a title race before. Sceptical but hopeful.

    Over the course of 12 games we've gone from yes to no, then back to yes, now for some back to no again. Shows how much things can change in football. I think Rangers will buckle under the pressure and we'll eventually go on a winning run of 8-10 games. I feel we have the quality to do that and still think we've yet to see the best of this team despite some 5 and 6-game winning runs at times. So yes, why not?

    Im learning towards no at the moment because I think we have a very thin squad, I feel like we are always one or two injuries away from being in a crisis especially if its kyogo or mcgregor. Having said that if we have a good January and strengthen in certain key areas particularly midfield then well have a much better chance.

    I still feel we can strive to be the least * team in the league.

    Until the Livi’ game, I would have said yes. Now I am just really uncertain. Whichever way it pans out, I think it will be very tight (decided in the last few games of the season).

    With our squad still 5 players short and with refs like Walsh who hands out a red card every game to the opposition and with beaton and madden helping out also it's a tough ask .

    We won’t get a better chance than Saturday to go top of the league and we blew it.

    Huns go and win 6-1 the following day. All of a sudden we have went from breathing down their necks to not being able to drop more points.

    There will be twists and turns and I’m certainly not calling anything at this stage but failing to beat Livingston and Dundee Utd at home are the sort of results that come back to bite you in the *.

    They have a tough run of games over the next two months - if we can avoid anymore stupid slip ups like Saturday I reckon we’ll go into the Jan 2nd game in a position where the winner will go top. Win that, bring in an LB and a CM and I’ll be very confident. They’re starting to become full of players that don’t really want to be there much like we were last season.

    For me, it depends on how close we are to them come January, and then whether or not we beat them in January. If we are top of the table (or close enough) after that game, we have a good chance. That good chance becomes a great chance if we sign a midfielder or two and a striker.

    Keeping the players injury free will be a major factor. If we can do that then yes we can win the league

    I would be able to give a better answer after the January transfer window.

    Unless we strengthen significantly then I can’t see us winning it due to us having a thread bare squad and you only have to see what happened when Kyogo got injured not so long ago.

    We are not far off having a team that will win the league but it’s the board who will have the final say if we can do it.

    I voted yes, I know that we can be absolute dire at times and Ange needs to be able to change things up when it's not working but when we are on our game we are brilliant....I'll reckon it will come....fingers crossed.

    Before the Livi game i would have said yes. Now i would say no.

    The huns are as bad as we are, but i think it goes down to the other small teams in the League. Will Livingston fight for their lives against the huns like they do vs us? I highly doubt it.

    Had to think long and hard about it, and went with yes purely because I think it's completely 50/50, with literally nothing to divide us. I think if neither side strengthens in January we'd lose it, but I think we'll do more than them in the window. If we don't, I'd reverse the decision... It's that close.

    There should have been an undecided option, at this stage of the season, but hey ho!

    No doubt the huns will drop more points along the way, but it wont benefit us if we canny win our own games.

    We’ve won 4 and drawn 1 of the last 5 league games.

    I’m going out on a limb and saying if we repeat that pattern for the rest of the season we will win the league. Assuming the hun games are in our win column.

    Need to pump them at Celtic Park..

    We won't be far away from them by that game I don't think but we pump them and recruit fairly well, we can 100% win it..

    Agreed but it all pins on us not slipping up.

    Their tough run of fixtures becomes easier every time we drop silly points like Saturday.
