Is Top Six still on ?

Enough points available?

Yes

Then yes it’s still on IMO

As is relegation, by that logic. 

Neither are very likely.

Could see Livi picking up 4 points from their 2 games v Hearts and Aberdeen, which would put them on 42. We would need 3 wins from 5 (including against them) plus a point in the other 2 to get to 43.

Meanwhile St.Johnstone looking at that list could win against St.Mirren, Livi and Hamilton giving them a possible 9 and putting them on 41.

All 'ifs/ buts/ and maybes' clearly, but we are still in this....even if we lose to Aberdeen again, we could still do it by winning against Accies, St.Mirren, and Livi and getting a point at Fir Park.

Interesting that Aberdeen play us, Hibs, and Livi. Given their form at the moment, they could conceivably lose all three, pulling them right back in to the mix.

It will be a huge achievement to finish top 6, four weeks ago I was just hoping to stay in the league. Sadly I don't see us having the squad depth or quality to pick up the points required.

Can't see us making top six. Obviously still mathematicly achievable but need Hibs and/or Livi to drop points and us to pick up enough to go above them, I don't see us picking up enough points to capatilise 'if' Hibs or Livi drop points.

I think it’s unlikely, but possible.

We need to get something out of the Aberdeen game, then probably need 9 points out of the next 4 games, including beating Livi.  It would be our best patch of form of the season at a time where our skinny squad might be tiring.

Defeat against Aberdeen and our season is over.

It is possible that from the remaining games we can achieve a top six position. But our form has been pretty inconsistent since the winter break, We need to create momentum with a run of positive results. Injuries and suspensions could have an impact on our  small first team squad.

Definitely is. Our form (if we can eradicate some of the silly mistakes), is as good anyone’s at the moment (tic apart). We really need to get that Aberdeen monkey off our backs next time out. If we can win that game, we’re set up nicely for winnable games. 

I’d love an explanation on why this comment has been downvoted?!

Unlikely but still a very outside chance if everything went our way. Being Mr Pessimistic I just want to see us safe from relegation/playoff. It is still a concern that a team which had lost seven on the spin just four weeks ago could easily revert to type, especially with suspensions/injuries exposing the threadbare nature of our squad.

Who cares? It's imaginary red numbers on your screen. Take the message that some people disagree with you, but don't want to comment on it. Plenty other things to spend your time on than worry about this.

Imho our squad is not strong enough to achieve top six this season...... but I'll gladly be proved wrong.

Poor decisions and poor recruitment culminating in a lack of squad depth will see us miss out on top 6.  Unfortunately we are not a top 6 side this season.  I will be genuinely amazed if we now finish in the top 6.  Season has pretty much been a write off with some disastrous cup exits. 

A lot of mistakes made and learning required by the board ahead of next season.  Similar recruitment in the summer will probably see us relegated next season if we don't get our act together.

To follow on from this if we do not make top 6 do we continue with AD and JF as our recruitment team or change it straight after split to give new recruitment team time to assess the market for next season.

I don’t think changing a Head of Football Operations, responsible for reviewing every aspect of club from top to bottom, after four months, makes any sense whatsoever.

James Fowler is not Chief Scout so getting rid of him on back of one transfer window, a month in the door, would be crazy.

The summer window is the big one, mess up again and we may have to reconsider. If Bowie is going to turn to James Fowler for footballing decisions, who is he going to turn to if JF isn't getting the job done ? BB was on easy street before because he had an experienced manager who probably took all the footballing decisions, the only question BB had to answer was whether we had the budget to pay the players that SSC brought in.

Agreed stability is what's required give the man time to put his plan / vision in place. We got 2 men in JF and AD as HoFO and Manager with integrity and a passion for Killie, give them time to build something here, results have not been great agreed but you can definitely see an improvement in performance and it looks like we are playing to a plan most of the time. We could make top six but for me its safety first then build for next season, put this season down to a learning curve, steep learning curve.

Weird one. If we are going to scrape into the top 6 with no chance of Europe and the possibility of enduring Celtic winning the league at RP, I'd rather be bottom 6, have easier games and relegate Hearts.

Who is the chief scout then? Club website says J.F. responsible for all football related appointments and recruitment.

I think James Fowler talked in his recent interview about the scouting system.
