tough run in before the split, 3 out of 4 games away to teams in the Top Half from last year.


Looking foward to the season start, any chance of Rangers/Motherwell/Celtic or Hibs being in European action when we play them??


I think Rangers have their first European fixture inbetween playing us and Celtic.




It'll be a Sunday KO though chimpy, and you know it to be true.  :(


For once that would suit me, I'm only getting two days off a month and they're both sundays!

As long as we get plenty notice I'm no fussed either, but it will be 9 days or some such shite again. :hammer:


Wouldn't that be around the time of the final group game of the uefa cup?


So the Motherwell game will be on Sunday. ::)


And anyway, who would give a shit about Inverness v Aberdeen with this set of fixture?


Falkirk v Celtic, 15:00

Hamilton v Motherwell, 15:00

Hearts v Dundee Utd, 15:00

Inverness CT v Aberdeen, 15:00

Kilmarnock v St Mirren, 15:00

Rangers v Hibernian, 15:00

Seems like they've mixed up the schedule too as opposed to playing 3 blocks of the same fixtures.


They used a Canadian-based company called Optimal Planning Solutions to draw up the fixtures.  Apparently they specialise in sports fixture scheduling and are responsible for the NFL and the American baseball leagues.


Some of the factors they were told to take into account by the SPL were:-


Not having Celtic and Hamilton playing away from home on the opening day.

Not having any club playing 4 out of 5 games either home or away

No long-haul journeys over the festive period, or midweek

A fair balance of home and away midweek games

No clubs playing successive home or away matches several times

No club to play 3 home or 3 away matches against another team

Pah, fuck excitement!


I'd rather ICT at home and 3 points banked straight off than a trip down to Tannadice for a humping.


I'd rather a trip down to Tannadice for a win.


Anyway, I'm glad the two first Wednesday evening games are against St Mirren.

With the last game before the split being what it is, I hope we've got the title/top 6/safety from relegation sewn up before then. I'd hate for that to be a top 6 decider. Still, it's nearly 10 months in the future, we might be amazing by then and be able to win it.
