Rob, I did but only for 20, which didn't cover my other bets lol.

Not bitter, I would love to see the dandies win the league but I truly just cant see it but amazingly the dons are only 10/1 to win it on BetVictor, so get a couple of hundred on it.

6-1 is to short, as much as it would be great for the Scottish game, the bookies are rarely wrong they still have Celtic at 1-25 which is less than the 1-40 I saw at the start of the season.

Yeah Celtic were 5th in November IIRC last year and look how that panned out.
Well let's see. Last season was fairly tight almost all the way up to the split. Aberdeen look to have strengthened compared to last season whilst Celtic appear to have done the opposite.

Also, the position in November was heavily affected by games in hand. Aberdeen have a game in hand right now.

I still regard Celtic as the more likely to win the league, but they're vulnerable right now and it's a pleasant change to be on top :smashin:

Sure makes for a more interesting league, but remember it's only temporary until Sevco are elevated to their rightful place.:D;):cool::eek:

Hasn't been one of these threads for a few years, been a little one sided so nice to see a little challenge for a change.
Celtic will still win the league but it may only be single digits this year and not the 17 it was last season.

Away to Hearts in the LC so a chance to make up for Saturdays lack of goals!

It was a real relief to see Celtic failing to capitalise on a poor Aberdeen performance this weekend.

We'll likely still be top after the first third of pre-split matches which is better than we'd have hoped.

Just need to keep grinding the results one week at a time.

Aberdeen are a better team than last year when we were still in it as we approached the split. I'd like us to be even tighter (if not ahead) at that stage this season and really test their bottle.

Would be great to see someone, anyone, win the Scottish league apart from the usual suspects, not sure what Scottish football needs to totally reinvigorate itself but a non old firm win could be the start.
I assume you meant to say suspect ;)

I welcome the Aberdeen challenge, makes it interesting since Europe will take it's toll on Celtic as last year proved.
Ultimately it will end up back at Celtic Park and even when Sevco return they will be in no shape to offer any sort of challenge.

Sevco can't return anywhere, they've never been in the premier league, they're only a little over 3 years old.

Don't worry, we'll be unlucky to see the son of RFC(IL) back up in the top league, as they will hopefully go to the wall like the father is doing.

So to summarise on today's headlines

1. Rangers lost the Big Tax Case and are officially cheating so & so's

2. Sevco released their annual accounts which says they need £2.5m to see out the season and they need it within three weeks.

3. They posted an annual loss of £7m which actually would have been £16m if it hadn't been for their various loans last season.

4. Mike Ashley suckered Dave King into a meeting only for King to be served with a writ for Contempt of Court when he arrived from South Africa and it looks like he's heading to Bar L for his Christmas porridge

Have I missed anything out?

Yeah, you missed that their results are inflated by £1.3 million of one-off revenue from the Commonwealth Games.

Yes, kinda hard to judge which way this one is going. Judge seems to be equally hacked off with both parties.

Yeah might be a score draw lol. But he is giving the highly paid QC for SD a going over.
