Well another Season and another chance to laugh at the idiot who makes predictions. Now in my fifth year of this madness it’s time to harden my neck and put it on the chopping block. I will be wrong I may also be right but just for fun here it is. No one has 2020 vision but here is my Mystic Meg Impression for 2019.

 

Rangers – This is not a season for Dave King not to buy Brasso. The pressure and expectations at Ibrox means this is make or break for Steven Gerrard. The squad now looks like it could last a season and with additional support in Mid-Season I feel that Rangers will be celebrating title number Fifty Five.

Celtic – Neil Lennon has the scope and skills to win a championship (he has done it before) but I got the feeling that Celtic towards the end of last season were operating on memory not endeavour. I am not sure that Neil Lennon has enough to beat a fully functioning league as comprehensively as his Predecessors and his previous tenure. Will be interesting but Celtic in second.

Hibernian – Higgingbottom has installed a discipline and a style that has been refreshing and winning Hibs certainly finished last season with momentum and I think they will carry it through to this season.

Aberdeen – With all eyes on new stadia and a Chairman saying increased funding for football it was a shock to see the Dons fall to 4th in last year’s standings. Losing your Captain and the same set of circumstances seem to make it a simple choice to place The Pittodrie side in same position.

Saint Johnstone – Two mediocre Seasons by Tommy Wrights Standards usual means the same thing this season will be a top six finish for the Perth Club. It the law of averages but seems an easy choice to place them in fifth.

Motherwell – As with Saint Johnstone last year was terrible for the fir park side. Stephen Robertson did a revamp mid-season and reaped the rewards I would have placed the Steelmen higher but losing Hastie and the Turnbull saga and Injury means I really don’t see Motherwell Rocking the league but they will finish top six.

Heart of Midlothian – There is something from the outside that stinks at Tynecastle. Great Squad amazing board room but a shocking lack of brilliance on the pitch. On paper Hearts are Top Six but in practice Hearts scrape seventh.

Ross County – New boys looking to make up from their disastrous relegation season and bounced back with vengeance. Strolled the Championship and with that will go far be safe and slot into eighth.

Kilmarnock – Simply Put Ninth. Steve Clarke has left the building and took the secret formula with him. A calamitous European campaign bodes badly for this season.

Hamilton – Safe in tenth but it will be tight but mission accomplished for Brian Rice. Without a new Academy Starlet to excite the New Douglas Park Crowd then its only cause there is worse teams that keeps the Accies in the top League.

Livingston – Worse away record last year and teams are used to the terrible Plastic Pitch now so their home form won’t be as good. Play offs for the Almondvale side and pot luck in that battle.

Saint Mirren – Much like Kilmarnock their wonder kid manager left and now on the third pick since Jack Ross they are still a club in freefall saved only by Dundee being so awful last year. This job has come too early for Jim Goodwin Championship for Paisley next year.
