No chance , lucky to make top 10 .

I find it incredible that 27 people have voted that we will finish in the top six!!!! these people are either seriously deluded or complete bampots at the wind up I must admit before this patheti

not a hope. will do well to finish top ten. once celtic/rangers get their top 10 league and 3 teams are relegated we will become a 2nd tier team who will find the odd gem like robson, cowie, hayes

I still think we'll finish 7th, too many teams have games in hand and they should and will catch us. I hope now that Johnny is back we can pick up some form though and at least challenge right till the end for a top 6 place.

I think it will be a struggle now. We could quite easily slip to about 8th over the next month as 'Well and D Utd play their games in hand. Top 6 not impossible though if we have another good run. Even if we don't achieve it, it was fun for a while dreaming of it, and even Europe!

Probably next year now...

Being seriousness, I think It's still very much possible. I think a top six finish and cup run would a make for a fantastic season. (I hope we do make the cut - If we don't I have to pay Alternative Maryhill in to the last awaygame!) Looking at how things are going at the moment, the goal drought is the problem. St Mirren, St Johnstone and Hamilton yesterday should have been beatable.

I genuinely believe wee Johnny Hayes will be the difference between a Top 6 and a bottom six finish.

He was only on for ten minutes yesterday, but still managed create a couple of chances in that time - but much more significantly - he gave the whole team a real lift.

Our next 6 games will decide whether we make it or not -

With Hayes back in the frame you've surely got to fancy our chances against the likes of :

Aberdeen home

Dundee Utd home

St Mirren away

St Johnstone home

Hibs away

Motherwell home

I would fancy ICT to take at least 12 points from that lot which should be good enough for the Top 6.

Kilmarnock will finish up in the top half and im willing to bet that either Aberdeen or Dundee United will pip us for the other spot, Motherwell are in the mix too. I just think unless we get back to the way we were before christmas we are destined to finish under the top 6.

Last I checked we were already in the top 6...it's therefore ours to give up and I'm confident we won't do that.

But if the teams immediately below us win their games in hand we won't have any say in the matter

It's not ours to give up at all , if the teams below us win their games in hand we're in the bottom 6 and not a thing we can do about it .

At the risk of appearing negative...altho i see it as being a realist....i think that, given that our once in a generation away form seems to have come to an end...which saw us achieve an artificially high place in the league on the back of it....well....couple that return to normal service, with a currently terrible home form, which shows no sign of changing, i can see us getting dragged down from this point on. I think we will end up in the bottom 6, which doesnt bother me....as long as we can acheive 11th place or higher placing come the end of the season. 8 pts form the last 30 is not top 6 form!

I think we will finnish 7th or 8th at best

I guess the fact that ICT have, historically, been slow starters and strong finishers in the majority of our league campaigns counts for nothing then.

The way some people are going on then Butcher should probably just right this season off and start preparing for next season....if we're really lucky we might just avoid relegation!!!

I will vote after the United home game. If we beat the dons and united then its a confident yes but we need that killer instinct in front of goal or we will be punished.

Breaking it down our first 11 games we achieved 15 points, which I was happy with.

The next 11 isn't as clear cut as we still have to play United out of that run of 11 so excluding Gers and Hamilton we picked up 13 points. So lose draw or win would be 13,14,or 16 points.which is pretty close to where we want to be at this stage.

I would hope that 45 points would be enough to earn a top six place and we aren't too far off that target.

If the team reflects on what they have achieved so far and where they sit in the league I see no reason why they cant continue the run and be top six certs.

i voted yes and believe we can but we need to start winning as the others who have games in hand also have hard games notibly the top 3 teams so they will drop points just a matter if we can start winning and increase the gaps

Looking at the table I'd say there are 5 (possibly 6) teams going for the final 3 top 6 places. We've played more games than all of them and I just can't see us being any higher than 7th by the time they catch up.

Couple that with our remaining fixtures and I don't see us getting enough points to get back up there. Losing to St Mirren & St Johnstone & yesterday's draw have done too much damage.

Get real guys. 11th place was the target this season and that will be achieved. Give TB & MM a chance to build. I would love to see us in top 6 cos the extra money would be great but our home form is dire!

voted no but I think its possible. The head says we will just miss out say 7th or 8th. We are definately not in the relagation race unless things go from bad to worse and we simply stop picking up any points at all. last time 37 points put us down and not too far away from passing that now.
