How do we win the league next season?

Clinical finishing. Far too many games we miss chances to put the game to bed to then concede a late equaliser. Aberdeen away, Hibs home and away

Create more clear cut chances. Improve conversion rate.
Make better use of corners and indirect free kicks.
Timely substitutions.
Close games out properly when we have narrow leads late on.

No chance, if they beat us 4 times, and we beat everyone else, there is no chance they are dropping more than 12 points against everyone else,

We need to come through the 4 old firms with a better head to head than them
Only once in the last 5 years have they dropped less than 12 points all season and they are now a shadow of that team.

Point being, beating celtic won't win us the league, beating everyone else will.

Beat them twice at Ibrox and one draw at the shame stadium and stop the Killie, Hibs, Sheep slip ups.

And / or play like we did after the split last game apart plus avoid stupid red cards.

Also refs being fair every game helps

Take the officials out of the equation by not settling on a one goal lead. One goal is never enough until the final whistle goes. Capitalise on the numerous chances we make, improve discipline and not give the officials a decision to make. We do this and 55 is happening.

Turn draws into wins, better options from the bench! Games v them take care of themselves, its killie and the likes we need to beat

If we got beat off celtic 4 times, that would prove that they were a better side than us,

So if we were then to win every other game in the league am sure they wouldnt slip up at least 4 times if we have managed to win every game. Hypothetical I know

Start games quickly and try to win them in first half. Far too many times last year the first half of games were played like a friendly and it allowed teams to sit in .

Overcome this fear of plastic pitches.
Stop dropping points to Aberdeen
Beat Celtic at least twice

That is obviously true, but I believe if Rangers were to win that first OF encounter it would prove psychologically devastating to select. Aside from the pleasure beating them always brings - it would bring about the mother of all implosions amongst their fans, TLB would probably be hounded out, and Lawwell go into full panic mode, as they see their 8-year long dominance of Scottish football coming to an end and the natural order restored.

Possibly seems like an obvious question but I would like to see what others thought going from our games last season?

The strength in depth we have now will help while
we play 2/3 games in a week and hopefully cut out the silly dropped points we had - Motherwell & Dundee (both away) instantly spring to mind.

Better discipline as Gerrard has mentioned - as again it cost us points - Aberdeen and possibly Celtic away.

And finally I think we NEED to take something at Celtic Park this season.
We need to be utterly ruthless with every team in the league and win well in order to nullify any dodgy ref decisions harming results. I have no doubt we'll be even better against them,given the additions we've acquired.

don't make the same stupid mistakes as last season. (what a chance wasted to win the league), if we get a consistent team and go on a good run and not drop unexpected points .

being top after the first round of games would be massive, then we could possibly get away with a draw at their place at new year.
We need to beat them at the crime scene. Their ridiculous winning streaks at that place tends to be what sees them through. We need to break that assuming they haven’t dropped points at home before then.

A very real target for us is to go through the league unbeaten with max of 3 draws! Aim high time!

We need to be relentless, start well and don't let up. Even when the eventual setback comes along we need a winning mentality

Winning the league cup will be massive if we are to win the league imo. As it will give the squad a taste of winning and also give them belief that they can win the league.

Cut out so many International breaks

Okay, I know we can’t, but somehow deal with them better. We always seemed to be on a good run of form only to have it interrupted by an international, then struggle to regain that form when regular play resumed again. Now our squad is getting stronger maybe we can afford to rest players coming off an international appearance, particularly if it involves considerable travel or time away

Were always going to drop points at some point in the season but not beating killie once last year cost us big time.

A chance to put things right on the first game of the season.
One win v Hibs.

Look at the last title winning season for proof of the results required

Steam roller every team we play into conceding oh and a last minute winner at the sty to clinch the title will do me !

It's imperative that we start the season strongly and that's going to be no mean feat against our two bogey teams. Killie Away and Hibs at home have been thorns in our side.

Champions are able to grind out 1 - 0 wins. Last season in particular we threw away 1 goal leads late on to Hibs twice if I remember correctly.
We gave away quite a lot of late goals in fact (Aberdeen & Motherwell away spring to mind) whereas Celtic won 3 or 4 games in the last minute.

That's a massive swing in points and it made the difference in the end.
