Terrible new about Morris, we could really have done with him for this last five games.  As bad as our defence has been at times, he's been our best defender and leader for some time, maybe since Davies. 

With regards to Maouche, pfft, who is he, what will he offer, will he put Draper, Shaw and Hylton further down the pecking order for a start in John Hughes' starting XI, if so what's the point?

Probably get played out of position  instead of Naismith.

Aye, or kept on the bench with a starting pairing of Donaldson & Iacovitti 😣🤦

With a bit of luck he might get subbed on as part of a quadruple change because JH has realised in the 70th minute his original XI and formation were shit😤

We've played something like 30 games in 25 days, all our players are absolutely fucked. You'd be as well watching bowls as you'll probably get as much use and analysis out of that as you would watching us at the moment.

All the more reason why County should be winning without too much hassle.

I haven’t disliked a County team in quite some time as I do with this current one. 
 

Whoever comes in the summer will have their work cut out.

Could really pull up anyone of the useless b*****ds but how bad is Stephen Kelly. He’d be some marathon runner but the poor guy is absolutely hopeless.

If I had a pound for every time a Kelly cross beat the first man I'd have about £4.

That time where he had the ball around the half way line, tried to play a long ball but hit a Caley player 10 yards in front of him, then lost the header was absolutely pathetic.

Not seen or heard a quote from John Hughes since the cup defeat, hopefully he's away trying to find the crayons so he can write his resignation.  The squad is poor but it's made worse with Hughes picking the team and tactics.

I'd seriously consider going with Cowie until the end of the season.

If one of the management team goes they all should. We need to look past the ‘county people’ mentality ie jobs for the boys... it just doesn’t work.

I disagree, we have a 5 game mini season to save our top division status (maybe 7 with a playoff).   

For some time I have felt that under JH the team are stumbling into selections/formations/results, and are sleep walking into the championship.  I don't see or know of anyone obvious to come in and get a reaction but I'd give Cowie the opportunity for the run in and see what he and the squad can get out of these games.

 

Going forward into next season, I'd be on the look out for an experienced new manager to work alongside Don and Richie.

The team needs a couple of seasons in the championship.  Most of the squad needs to be released.   There’s no chance Naismith or Shaw are County players next season either.

Are you serious, no team EVER needs a couple of seasons in the Championship, it's a graveyard for teams, just look at Dundee, Dunfermline & ICT. It's far easier to do a rebuild whilst in the top division.

Survival is far from beyond us (even with Hughes at the helm), the next fixture, away to Killie is huge but not necessarily a must win, more of a must avoid defeat game I'd say, as that puts the pressure and focus straight back onto Killie and Wright.  We can certainly win our two midweek home games so any away points in this short run in are a bonus.

What’s wrong with where Dunfermline and ICT are?  That level seems a far better fit for County than 10th or 11th in the top flight.

I switched over last night and watched something else at half-time because it was just so boring. Checked WhatsApp to see we were 1-2 down and assumed it finished 1-2 (saw the final score on Twitter this morning).

I've been quite apathetic this season. There's a disconnect without being able to get to games, and I can count on one hand the number of full games I've watched this season. It's less than the number I've started then turned off out of boredom.

There's a big clear out needed at the club. Coaching staff get given cushty gigs because of who they are, rather than any evidence of them being decent coaches. We've had more shite managers over my time watching the club than good ones so I'm not holding out much hope that the next appointment is going to be a good one. 

The squad is dreadful. And we've had rubbish, unbalanced, bloated squads for the past four or five years. I can't remember the last time we had a decent left-back or left-sided midfielder. The vast majority of this squad need binned. If I were Jason Naismith I'd be frantically looking for another club because he's far too good to be playing with these players. 

Hughes has improved us but he's rubbish.  Like Coyle, he's yesterday's man but County inexplicably give him the gig. He doesn't know his best system or his best team.

The worst part of it is that regardless of survival or relegation is that nothing changes! Stay up and we continue with the treading water approach. Go down and it's the same as last time - short term thinking to bounce back straight away. I got no enjoyment out of the last Championship winning season, it was underwhelming.

TL;DR - we're shit, I'm underwhelmed with everything about the club at the moment, and apathetic about relegation.

This.  Absolutely this.  The problem is, next season they’ll bring in a rent-a-right-back, lose all the better players, and still have enough to scrape the Championship.
