Anyone but Rangers please.

I'd like to see Aberdeen do well though, mainly because its the anniversary of there European Cup win which obviously Fergie managed.

I think Rangers will win unfortunately. last season they had too many fixtures which cost them but now they're out of Europe they can focus on the league.
Rangers won't get anywhere near winning the league. And Aberdeen are poor.

Rangers have no creativity, no leadership and no flair, plus their gameplan is defensive (although they played 4-4-2 against Falkirk.) They have now sold their best defender to Aston Villa, who they will only keep if he fails his medical. The squad's morale is down and the supporters are unhappy and on the back of the chairman and manager, and rightly so.

Aberdeen have a decent team, but their squad isn't the best and Jimmy Calderwood is absolute crap. He shouldn't have received a new contract imo.

Celtic will win the league at a canter. They may have played poorly against St Mirren, but once they pick up they'll be dominant. They have a good and the best squad, are the most attacking, with a strong defence when playing in the SPL, a fine mixture of a midfield and can score goals for fun when they hit top form.

Before the season, I went for Dundee Utd to finish second, but unless they improve drastically they won't. One result doesn't determine their season, but their performance was awful so if they don't pick up, ther chances of finishing second will go down.

For the drop, I think that Hamilton may escape, with their good, young, hungry squad. I think it'll be St Mirren who go down into Division One.

Just to mention Hamilton play a superb style of football. Great passing and very rarely a long ball. They arevery pleasing on the eye. Usually teams that come up just hoof it
Of course. Something I forgot to mention in my praise of Hamilton.

Yeah, its Hamilton. fantastic prospect. Will be in the Irish squad before too long.
James McCarthy is actually a Scotsman thats chosen to play for Ireland I believe because his grandfather comes from Ireland :( :rolleyes:

No doubt a fantastic prospect. Hes been on trial with Liverpool, and was rumoured to be interesting 2 Italian clubs, was it Sampdoria and Reggina? Can't really remember.

Its a pity hes decided to play for Ireland instead of Scotland. But good luck to him all the same.

I was at the game, it was decent. Hopefully Aberdeen can push on from here as they're definatly not performing as well as they can.
I watched it on Setanta and thought the game wasn't great actually. It took 65 mins for the first corner of the game :eek:

I thought Rangers should have probably won, and they did get that goal wrongly disallowed at the end.

But who cares? :p

Ryan beware lol hehehe
:rolleyes:

Anyway, as long as Celtic play Hartley and Robson in the centre of midfield, I think they'll win. I'm going for 2-0 Celtic if they are played in the centre.

I think they'll outclass Rangers in all honesty. Rangers only have about 2 good players.

A truly sad day for Dundee Utd, and Scottish football in the whole;

==========================================================
United mourn chairman
Eddie Thompson loses battle against cancer



Dundee United have confirmed that chairman Eddie Thompson has died after a long battle against cancer.

Thompson, 67, lost his fight against prostate cancer in the early hours of Wednesday.

Despite his debilitating illness over the past few years, he continued with his duties at Tannadice as long as he could and also insisted on supporting his team in person as much as possible, both home and away.

A club statement read: "It is with great sadness that Dundee United announce the death of chairman Eddie Thompson, who died today after a long illness borne with great fortitude, much bravery and a dogged determination to carry out his responsibilities at Tannadice for as long as possible."

SPL confirm Thompson tribute
United-Rangers game postponed



Dundee United's SPL match against Rangers at the weekend has been postponed as a mark of respect following the death of Tannadice chairman Eddie Thompson.

Thompson died on Wednesday after a long battle with cancer and the SPL have now confirmed that the weeekend's clash will not go ahead as planned.

SPL executive chairman Lex Gold described the death of Thompson as "a great loss to our game" and he confirmed that Saturday's match at Ibrox would be rescheduled for a later date.

"At this time our thoughts are with those close to Eddie. We send our condolences to his wife Cath, children Stephen and Justine, their families and all at Dundee United," he said.

"Eddie's incredible enthusiasm for Dundee United, the SPL and football in general made him an inspiration to many. He is a great loss to our game.

"On a personal level, I am pleased to have been able to work with Eddie and I will miss his support, encouragement and insight."

The SPL also confirmed there would be one minute of applause for Thompson before all other top-flight games in Scotland this weekend.

Levein praise

Dundee United manager Craig Levein paid tribute to his boss and close friend.

"We have lost someone I'd call a decent guy and as close as we've become, he is someone I wish I could have known a lot longer," he told the club's website.

"As a chairman he could not have backed me any more than he did, but it is as a good man that I think of him.

"Over the next few days a lot will be said about him and what he achieved, but I really will remember him as a decent guy.

"We knew how ill the chairman was and we have been expecting this. That means in some ways you can steel yourself for it, but when it happens it is still terrible news.

"We are all very upset and right now there is not much I can say."

Good stuff Celtic. Last minute winner as well by Hartley.
Celtics record since they were beaten by Rangers at Celtic Park? 10 wins out of 10. 30 points without dropping a single one.

They've playing great, and even today when they didn't play that well they dug in and got the points (Celtic also went behind.) And considering they also currently have a lot of injuries, they have done great this season so far.

Before the season and especially now, I'm saying Celtic for the League :)
