I think as long as we win our 3 away from home we'll be within a point or two of third, if not clear ourselves.  I would expect us to get something off the huns, but given our record vs the tims at pittodrie I wouldn't be putting much on us getting a win. 

 

Whatever, the OF games will take care of themselves.  The biggest game is probably Killie away on a cold Jan midweek night infront of a shit crowd.  Win that, top6 is secure and we're breathing down the jutes necks

Just to be sniffing at Eurpoean qualification is refreshing again.

 

Personally, I can't see us in 3rd by the end of January. I WOULD LOVE TO; don't get me wrong. I see the Killie game being the biggest of the upcoming schedule. 3rd can be done but at the end of February or later.

 

This is Aberdeen; they never do anything easy.

Agreed, end of Jan is a big ask with the OF both to play but we might have put ourselves in a good position and I have a feeling that we will see a bit of a gap opening up between the 3 sides and the rest (Hibs, Killie et al)

Right now I reckon we are capable of beating any team in the SPL.  Rangers and Celtic aren't scary, they aren't big or clever, they sign shite like Broadfoot and Boyd.

 

If we go at them we can beat them, and if we lose while having a go at them then so be it.

 

To fuck with this sitting in shite. They're there for the taking.

I think that runners up spot gets in if OF win it but they are relegated to N4 position with N3 and N4 moving forward one place in terms of entry stage.

 

In the event of an OF final I suspect that 5th place would then get entry behind N3 & 4
