    Feeling Positive

    After today I have a great feeling that this is our year, as the old saying goes, The sign of a good team is when they play very poor they still win, which undoubtedly refers to today, Even with a somewhat dubious formation and lacklustre display we prevailed, thank God for Shankland, big surprise was nicky Clark's omission after his pre match interview showing he was ready and hoping to be involved. As I say promotion is staring down at us. C'mon United.

    I am buzzing, amazing how a few mins can change the mood, brilliant to get the win today from the losing position, should not have had to do it like that but we did, we won the game, we have surpassed many peoples predictions and i am quietly confident about this season... However it is obvious we need to watch Inverness and Ayr (although if McCall leaves may cause some issues but for now definitely showing form)

    Roll on the Morton game, improved performance would be welcome, I think we will get one too as that will ease the wee bit of tension caused by losing at Ayr and the gap between league games after the derby, make life easier for us, although enjoyed the late celebrations today!

    Yeah. Good post. I think we finally have enough in the dugout and on the pitch to win the league. Those of us who are looking for better "performances" get accused of negativity which is a shame because all we want is the best possible for the club in terms of performances and results together.
    A great start, potential for problems at Ayr, 5 wins from 6, we would all have taken that preseason.
    The only real concerns are Robbie tinkering away with lineups because he's swallowed a manual, and the unthinkable that Shanks gets an injury.
    But overall, aye, very positive!

    An injury to Reynolds would also be a major blow too.
