    Here is the big picture, our league games to go;

    Games in Hand (Dates TBD, probably in 2021)
    Aberdeen (H)
    St Mirren (H)

    Games Before Break
    St Johnstone (H)
    Kilmarnock (H)
    Livingston (A)
    Ross County (H)
    Hamilton (A)
    Dundee United (H)
    Rangers (A)

    Games Before Split
    Hibs (H)
    Livi (H)
    St Mirren (A)
    Hamilton (H)
    Kilmarnock (A)
    Motherwell (H)
    St Johnstone (A)
    Aberdeen (H)
    Dundee United (A)
    Rangers (H)
    Ross County (A)

    After Split (based on current standings)
    Rangers (A)
    Aberdeen (A)
    Hibs (H)
    Kilmarnock (H)
    Dundee United (H)

    If this is going to happen it starts with winning every game before the break. Looking at those fixtures with the exception of a tricky away tie in Livi (as always) and of course Ibrox, we SHOULD be capable of that.

    After the break, the fixture list is quite favorable imo.

    After the split with games away at Ibrox and Pittodrie, we'd better hope we've more than made up the ground.

    What are you basing this on?

    Genuinely like what gives you the hope to think things will change?

    Sickening to see how many Celtic fans have conceded the title already. Realise it doesn’t look good just now but we’ve overcame bigger gaps.

    We have, but you have to take context into account. The whole mood around the club has been utterly depressing for months now.

    There’s absolutely no chance we win this league with Lennon in charge, based on what we’ve seen.

    Agree, doubt we will win it under Lenny either, not impossible but unlikely. Just hope someone that can motivate and organise the team again gets brought in.

    I registered on the site in Strachan's 3. season, IIRC. We were in a really bad position at one point. I can't remember if the atmosphere was as worrying as it is now, but clawing back was a tall order. We sucked at set pieces back then, we also do now.

    The fans were the very same back then and we won the League. Great memories!

    On the basis of that success, I'd be willing to accept Gordon Strachan taking over. It has to be said he also * up the season after, though.

    He was a great manager. If we'd signed Steven Fletcher that season we'd have won 4 in a row.

    After Martin O'Neill, Lawwell was appointed, right? He had this policy which ensured that new managers got full backing only in the first season. Around the 3. season, any requests for players that could ensure a title race win would be denied. Happened multiple times. Strachan was the first victim.

    Things will get worse if we don't get rid of the manager and his assistants, these * could win it at a canter.

    True, but I have no confidence in this team to perform and win the two games in hand.

    The fixtures look good, possibly 8 of the next 11 games at home but we need to start consistently winning which doesn't seem likely given current form(albeit difficult games).

    With every passing week the board let us stumble on under Lennon, then the title gets further and further away. They should’ve bagged him after Sparta pumped us, but naw they’ve sat and watched it get gradually worse. Lennon done a job when the rat left and he also sorted out the mini crisis last season, but this is different and it’s plainly obvious he can’t sort it out this time.
