    Championship

    Looking like St Mirren will wrap this up this year, I think they might do it earlier than us last year. United are really poor this year and canít see them getting anywhere near St Mirren now. Wonder how long Lazlo will get before being punted. Are united, still struggling financially?

    Lets wait a few week until the postponed games are played. The buddies are only two bad results away from back in the mix. Livvy are the dark horses. The Pars are in there too. As we all know that division can change completely in a fortnight.

    Have not looked at the championship league table once this season and have no idea who is top or bottom. Assume it's St Mirren going by posts on this thread.
    Just relieved we are out that league now.

    By all accounts United are pretty rooked if they stay down, paying premier league wages on championship incomes on their fan base. I'd like to see St Mirren come up this season and Dunfermline next season, two good football clubs that are well run and have solid fan bases.

    It's making for a really interesting tussle this season, delighted to see Falkirk have no chance of coming up too.

    St mirren turned pretty decent when he took over, pumped us 3-1 in paisley and we struggled at home against them, although tee had wrapped things up by then

    Hopefully St Mirren will come up. Love a we trip to Paisley. It will be interesting to see who they have as manager if they do come up as Jack Ross will surely be snapped up by someone. They have the same points after 22 games last season as we had. They have also scored 4 more goals than we had at the same point. Considering the run they had at at the end of last season they have had an amazing year.

    Some left back boy scored a complete peach and I think he scored again. I thought it was 3-0

    2-0, we were hopeless more than them being good that night.

    We, more than most, should know that that league has many twists and turns, still plenty teams in the mix. Would quite like to see Dunfermline come up.

    To be honest the Premier league would benefit from any of St Mirren, Dundee Utd or Dunfermline coming up so far as facilities and crowds go, especially the Pars and Utd crowd wise.

    It looks like St Mirren just now and if past experience is anything to go by Dundee Utd better not be banking on the play offs. Since their inception the fact that its heavily weighted in favour of the Premiership club means only one team has ever managed to make it up that way and that took us having an absolute meltdown for it to happen.

    I think Dundee United are in trouble if they stay down again. Personally i hope they come up. The Dundee derby is one of our selling points and it's a miss to the Premiership. Such a unique fixture with the close proximity of the grounds.

    If they stay down then next season will be their 3rd season there, therefore no "parachute payment". That will hit them badly. We were down 3 seasons but our cup win helped us massively financially for the third season.

    Yeah it was a massive sroke of luck for us. Commercially wise we sky rocketed after 21/5/16 and we kicked on the next season. Good point about the parachute payment. I fear for them.

    Perhaps but they would still be a better addition to the Premiership than St Mirren IMO.

    Promote Pars, Buds, United, Livi letís get rid of 12 club league forever go for 14 minimum possibly 16 or even 18

    Keep United down. Iíve a theory that a strong Hibs and Dundee United cannot exist at the same time. In the years Iíve been following football one has been invariably only been strong when the other has been weak. Would like them to be the Edinburgh City of Dundee.

    Ross County and Hamilton down

    St Mirren and Dundee United up.

    Having the "old firm", Edinburgh derby, Dundee derby, "new firm" game along with a good footballing side in St Mirren can only be good for our top flight, imo

    Sounds great, but eventually one of those teams will have a bad year and get relegated. What we need is a 16 team league with no relegation for a minimum of 3 years which will allow clubs the chance to build decent squads, better infrastructure etc.

    I hope St Mirren come up just so I can get the Alamo back onto my pre match boozer schedule.

    The Alamo. It's like walking into a 1970's (and an early one at that) themed pub except that everything is original including the pies. That'll be a dollar.

    My money is on Brechin to get relegated. Four points. Did they get a fifteen point deduction or are they that bad.
