  1. Grivosti came off injured against rangers, at the end of october, hamstring/knee injury iirc. Don't think he's taken to the field since. He's undoubtedly a good prospect and imo it should be between him and Watson to play beside Callum Morris in the middle of our defence but Liam Fontaine seems to be unshiftable from the team this season, regardless of performances. I don't know who his agent is but Tom Grivosti always seems linked to teams back down south but he's a scouser so that's not a surprise. Hopefully he stays in Dingwall, is offered and signs a new longer contract.
  2. Brian Graham leaves County for Partick Thistle. Making way for Liam Boyce to return.
  3. Never started a first team game, made it onto the bench a few times, not a lot to say other than that. Maybe those who have time to watch the development team could say more.
  4. For ict's sake I hope not. A very poor player in his time at RC. Surely there's some promising youth worth a run out before giving contracts to dross like Toshney!
  5. Hahaha i was thinking the same myself. I got the angry poster bit too, a bit of a cut and paste job maybe? In all seriousness though, well done ST for the work/time he's putting into this thread.
  6. Chalmers = decent squad player but from his performances, I'd be surprised if he had been selected any more than he has been. If he wants away then fair enough, he may have a bigger role next season depending how things develop with Vigurs and Draper but he needs to dictate that midfield more if he stays.
  7. I wasn't aware that Clough had said that. My first opinion of that is that it's a come and get him plea to Stoke to buy him. Michael O'Neil obviously knows him well and he'll want to get a few of his own players in to get Stoke out of the relegation mess he's found them in. Boyce was Burton's record transfer signing when they signed him and they were clearly looking to sell him on for a sizeable fee, that injury in a preseason match at start of last season probably buggered those plans, this January will be their last chance to cash in. I'd imagine it'll be a wealthier club than Hearts that would get him.
  8. After their latest win Burton are in 12th but only 3 points off a playoff spot (8 away from an automatic promotion spot). You'd think that they're focus would be on a surprise promotion to the very lucrative Championship. With that in mind I'd be very surprised if he or Burton would entertain any business that might weaken their squad.
  9. As a County fan I've kept track of how our former striker has been performing. He's on a rich vein of form atm and he'll be out of contract this summer i believe. Last season was a write off due to serious injury but he seams to have put that behind him. He'll be on good wages, and on the look out for another rise I'd imagine, with other league 1 and championship clubs bound to be looking for a goal scorer, can hearts afford to compete? He's a natural goal scorer, who works shard fir the team too, maybe best slightly behind a lead the line attacker as he has great timing in his runs. Imo he'd be a great signing for Hearts, I'd just hate to see him play against Ross County, he'd destroy our current defence!
  10. Not surprising tbh, I'd forgotten about him myself. As in my post above, we have Spence, Paton and Henderson all performing reasonably okay in the centre atm, with Vigurs and Draper hopefully on their way back. Joe's popped up with a couple of very useful late goals but in matches he's started he's disappeared and looked like a player the rest of the team needs to carry, not something we can afford to do imo. Whereas Paton, arguably a similar forward thinking central midfielder, has been demanding the ball from team mates and surprisingly good (for a wee guy) in the tackle too. If he wants away, fair enough but i'm happy for him to stay given how fragile Vigurs and Draper are.
  11. Any transfer rumours, there was a Partick fan suggesting they were after Graham. He's been a useful impact sub but he may want more playing time and with Erwin fitter we could free up some wages? A wide player is surely what we want, especially with Midge out for so long. Any suggestions?
  12. The broken knee cap against your lot last season has taken a fair while to recover from. A loan deal may be beneficial to all concerned though.
  13. I may have agreed with that at the start of the season but Spence's ball retention and general mobility on the pitch is far superior to anything Draper has offered for a long time. Paton has looked good too, Vigurs and Draper will add depth but should be far from automatic picks for our midfield.
  14. I'd be surprised if Liverpool came away with 3 points today. There's still a long way to go and City are an amazing team imo.
  15. Both teams to score will be on my coupon again. I think we'd all accept a 2-2 in this.
  16. Wiki says he's a young winger, currently on loan to dundee until January. With Gardyne confirmed to be out for 3 or 4 months, there's probably some truth to it. I've no idea if he's any good though.
  17. 8 fit players, surely that'll be enough for the 3 points 😉
  18. I'd take a draw in this after the gubbing we got in Dingwall.
  19. To be fair to Stewart and as strange as it may sound to opposition fans, Stewart has been playing as a winger too.
  20. ^^^^What he said, clearly our best performance since that Hamilton game.
  21. Great performance from Ross County today, they were clearly up for it and Spence and Co were snaping into tackles from the first whistle. Fair play to Killie, it was a very open game both teams went at it and had a real go and there were good saves from both keepers. I just feel County were MORE on top in a ding dong game, delighted with another three points, the lads effort deserved it.
  22. Thank god its match day, I'm sick of nothing but politics everytime a telly or radio is on. I'm resigned to the fact that Fontaine will start again, Killie WILL score and so will County. Lob your money on both teams to score again guys! Obviously hoping County squeeze out a 2-1 win but who knows.
  23. Yeah, well that's a pretty good reason. SKY news it is.
