Saturday July 31

Dundee v St Mirren

Heart of Midlothian v Celtic (Sky Sports, 8.00pm)

Rangers v Livingston (Sky Sports, 1.30pm)

Ross County v St Johnstone

Sunday August 1

Aberdeen v Dundee United

Motherwell v Hibernian (Sky Sports 4.30pm)

Season kicks off this weekend, with three games live on Sky Sports.

Still some uncertainty over the numbers allowed at each game / stadium. But will be the first league game in well over a year with spectators for most.

Wondering how crowds are going to affect us this season.

I'm pretty positive one of the reasons we done well is because all of the idiots weren't there to boo the millisecond anything went wrong.

Now that Gerrard has won his first title, you'd expect the fans to be more forgiving than before. I'd expect the crowds at Celtic to be pretty hostile towards their own players this season, with Postecoglou taking the brunt of the frustration they were unable to direct at Lennon last year.

Also, would be a huge difference with crowds if they make the Champions League group stages. Sunday afternoon crowds just aren't up for a run of the mill game as Saturdays, and I can imagine that can lead to the loudest voices being the ones being frustrated.

But overall. I expect atmosphere at most grounds to be very good for the first couple of months of the season. And then die back down in October/November when the routine of going to football is well and truly back...

Battering Dundee at home doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of the title race but I think most fans are becoming quite aware that Postecoglou is a capable manager  - it is clear how he is trying to get the team playing, and even the biggest sceptics can't deny the improvement in Christie and Ralston in such a short space of time. 

If the team falls short this season, it will be for much bigger reasons than the manager. As an individual, I think he has earned time to be judged properly.

Some big games this weekend.

Dundee United, who after the first game against Aberdeen, have been pretty good in their start to the season, against Hearts, who have had a good start to the season themselves.

And then some midtable game on Sunday lunchtime...
