  1. I won’t find it now, but I compiled some stats back in the day (which I think I shared here) and Boyce was essentially twice as productive alongside Curran compared to without him. A great partnership and I absolutely loved watching Curran play. One of my favourites over the years..
  2. Ooft. We are 2 (TWO) league games into the season! Did you think we’d probably win the league a few seasons back when we won our opening 2 (TWO) games?
  3. “There’s only one Joseph Oluwagbemiga Mayowa Hungbo, One Joseph Oluwagbemiga Mayowa Hungbo! Theres only one Joseph Oluwagbemiga Mayowa Hungbo! ONE JOSEPH OLUWAGBEMIGA MAYOWA HUNGBO…!”
  4. It was most certainly a kick to the shins - I can still see it now! Although it was definitely completely off the ball and unnecessary, it was still a pretty crowded Rangers box when it happened, I think following a corner. I’ll never understand why Maxwell took it upon himself to take the pen… which in the end was delayed by a good 8 minutes due to all the protests from the Rangers players and general sorting out of the mess. We had pulled the first goal back in the 90th minute, would have had all the momentum and the extra man going into extra time… if we’d only blooming scored it. Most definitely a “what could have been” kind of night http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/cis_ins_cup/1679863.stm
  5. Buzzing to have spotted the whole squad back in full training as I strolled along the Peffery this morning Bring on the pre-season friendlies!
  6. I’m not normally “ITK”, but am very reliably informed Laidlaw signed an extension a good couple of weeks back. The bit I don’t fully recall is the length, but 2 years rings a bell.
  7. Without looking it up, my recollection is we were on 12 points after 24 games then picked up 25 of a possible 27 - starting with a 3-2 win at home v Motherwell in which Martin Woods turned into Lionel Messi...? VERY strange times, they were!
  8. Just to clarify: Are you saying getting Hughes in was a bad choice?
  9. That's not going to go down well Nothing like a wee reality check, eh. I had been planning posting one of my own (as much to play devil's advocate as anything else) once the season was (hopefully positively) concluded and attention inevitably turned to the question of whether we want Hughes in charge next season. A lot of people have already made their thoughts on that very clear... Now, there's obviously a lot more to it than what follows, (people have talked about him not being great at recruiting / assembling a decent team of his own, for example), but in addition to your own observations, another cold, hard fact is that since Hughes took over in December, County have been the 8th best team in the league. Nothing spectacular - but how many managers out there are realistically going to get County doing much better than that? Regardless of what any of us feel about Hughes, if we do end up binning him we better make absolutely certain we're replacing him with somebody better! If we manage that, after a bit of bedding in / rebuilding, we could potentially look forward to some relatively good years ahead. That would be delightful, and my first choice scenario. What I really DON'T want is to look back on binning Hughes and ending up worse off because of it...
  10. Well played sir, very well played! We’ve much to thank you for.
  11. Absolutely guaranteed to be one of the above, now you've gone and posted that. At least we'll all know who to blame.
  12. No great surprise to see the anti-Highland bias rear it’s ugly head again as we (Ross County) are given post-split fixtures which are almost exclusively against teams who are better than us.
  13. @frankthetank22 I’ve not been watching - barely even following today, but from what I can tell it sounds like: We have been poor (throughout!) St Johnstone’s home win has been far more comfortable than the score line suggests. I tip my cap to you, sir! ( )
  14. Fair enough. I agree we’ve been poor at times. For you, how poor we’ve been a times is enough for you to define us that way and predict a comfortable win for the opposition - I fully respect that. For me, we’ve been poor at times (awful even), but a combination of factors (including at times being less poor within the 90 that a game lasts) mean we have still been picking up 1.5 points per game, which in all honesty is good enough for me at this point of this season, and I wouldn’t be at all confident of predicting which way any given game would go between now and the end of the season!
  15. County are pretty LWLWLWL at the moment, with some awful officiating undoubtedly contributing to a couple of those L’s. I’m not going to say we’re quite good, but I think calling us pretty poor is harsh when we’re finding ways to win every other game.
  16. Following County one game to the next just now be like The bad news for Hibs fans is today we're due a
  17. What's people's thoughts on life under Yogi so far? He has now been in charge for a third of the league games we have played this season. We haven't been particularly consistent in that time, and we've rarely been tremendous, but here's his stats compared to Ketts' for this season: Yogi: 9 games played. 1.22 goals per game scored. 1.88 per game conceded. 1.1 points per game. Kettlewell: (Figures in brackets represent his last 15 games, ignoring the wonder-start made to the league - the kind of selectivity some people might not approve of but for me it's a relevant factor in measuring the impact of the change of manager) 18 games played. 0.56 (0.4) goals per game scored. 1.88 (2.13) per game conceded. 0.7 (0.4) points per game. For me, whilst we are unspectacular, inconsistent and far from safe, there are very clear improvements. Defense clearly still our biggest concern. Will the improvements be enough to keep us up? Who can really say. I think there's more reason for hope than there was under Kettlewell. Edited to add: In Yogi first 9 compared to Kettelewell last 9, Yogi has us scoring 4 times as many goals, conceding 15% less goals and picking up almost 6 times as many points.
  18. Oops! Thanks for the help, and your sensitivity. It’s not true what they say about you. Ok, I’m done. ‘Mon the Staggies!
  19. Indeed, I can help you with that one. You need to tick the “Terms and conditions” box. in your defence, you’ve not been on for a while, and also that box is practically invisible, and also the page should really be set up in such a way that, if you initially click “Sign In” without having ticked aforementioned practically invisible box, it highlights clearly for you the reason it is not letting you progress. Here to help. You’re welcome.
  20. Im trying to sign up for watching the game tonight, but when I fill in my details and click “Sign In” on the PPV page (which I’ve done plenty of times before) it’s not doing anything. Anyone else experienced this / got suggestions other than closing the page / refreshing?!
  21. I was thinking he would drop back whenever we get our first sending off.
