    Exclamation tick off

    Hi,

    In the sentence below:
    If only two of those variables could be ticked off, he was in for a battle.

    Does "could be ticked off" mean "could be listed"?
    and He was in for a battle means that he was in trouble?

    Re: tick off

    not a teacher

    So I told him: if it was a good club, with good history, some financial leeway, and a chairman who understands the game, he would have a chance. If only two of those variables could be ticked off, he was in for a battle.

    It would have been better if you had posted the fuller context from your previous question, as above.

    There are four conditions that, if present, would give him a good chance of success. If only two of them can be confirmed (ticked off) then he would have major problems.
