Leith junkies vs Dons - Final game
« on: May 14, 2019, 09:42:28 AM »
So it all goes down to the wire.  Don't like to have to rely on another team, let alone the huns to see us guaranteed european qualifiers.  Killie are more than able to give them a game, and us? Well, despite our decent form down there, we're threadbare.  Fortunately even if super joe is injured, we've got a more than able replacement.  They've nothing really to play for, so hopefully that works in our favour, but we need to go all out for the win.  Anything less will see us fail.

If Stewart does one thing in his time with us, I hope it's to push us for another season of european qualifier football.  Pittodrie deserves it.

Not overly confident with this match.  :-\

The elephant in the room is having to face Hivs at Easter Road for a third time in the league. This is the inherent flaw in the league splitting for the final 6 games and happens relatively frequently. But better than having an 18/20 home/away ratio which can happen (and does now and again).

Having said that....I'm far happier to go to Easter Road a third time than Tynecastle. First time we have faced their new boss.....seems to have galvanised them. Can't say I'm overly optimistic about getting 3 points which I suspect we will need to get 3rd. Sevco I'm sure will allow some of their senior players to get an extra week's holiday and give a start to a few of their squad players, maybe even a youngster getting a debut too.

In for this one............1-1 (Considine)

I actually think that Sevco will do the business. After their win last week, they'll want to turn up again and get the season ticket sales flowing.

Heckingbottom past his 15 match honeymoon period (apparently that's the general length of time the new manager effect lasts for*), and the losses are flowing in. I think we're a better team than them so we just need to go for it and we'll get the points. GMS might return apparently, so we probably don't need anyone else to beat Hibs given his record against them. Expect a 2-0 defeat!

Hibs 0 vs 1 Aberdeen ( Shinnie )
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

I'd like to see us finish 3rd, but I'm not too fussed about Europa League qualifiers.

I too think we will get the win, but I think the zombie club will beat Killie.

I’ll say 1-1 but not overly optimistic. Think a draw or a loss and we’ll match what Killie does. It will be a missed opportunity for 3rd me thinks as I don’t see Killie beating Rangers.

I reckon it'll be 1-1 in injury time, news will come in that Killie have just equalised and we'll bomb up the park, get a penalty and Stewart will score the winner (Cosgrove having been taken off for Devlin at 70 minutes)

 Bump

If rumours are to be believed and Clarke is announced as Scotland manager next week, this could play into our hands. Regardless, we still need to win. But hopefully pre match pressers etc will be about Scotland and unsettle the club.

Not looking forward to this one as we have been awful to watch for a while now. Hopefully a couple more of injured players are back and Shinnie will have had a week extra training. New manager bounce seems to be over for Leith Spoon Burners so hopefully we can get the win. Early goal would put a bit of pressure on Killie.

1-0 Hibs. They are quite entertaining to watch, our usual shite in attack, lumping the ball up field and hope. We don’t really deserve 3rd, we’ve been pretty brutal far too often.
