The 2013/14 season (with Accies featuring in the SPFL Championship) kicks off, almost for real, with a Ramsdens Cup tie at Airdrie. There are few clues to likely team selection and formation this early in the season but after a very positive pre-season it seems unlikely that new signing Keatings will not start. My interest will centre on the part played by player manager Neil. Alex played 45 mins last Saturday but I will be surprised if he features on the park in this game. Accies will start as favourites, if for no other reason that they are a division above Airdrie. Other than that, it's anyone's guess what will happen. The whole start to the season seems a bit surreal to me - it's still high summer in my book, with the usual raft of somewhat sad European qualifiers going on amid summer 'soccer' tournaments, golf, cricket and tennis. Well done to Stevie May on helping St Johnstone to win in Europe and good luck to Accies tomorrow. Oh, and I wonder what 'legends' will turn out on Sunday? Good luck with the fundraising - more info here.
