I'm sorry but the best loan window was when Adams signed Kiss, Songo'o, Tidser, Cikos, and Slew.

I was going to say actually that window was nuts. Kiss was the best player in the world when he signed on loan the first time

I’m not a fan of fielding a weakened side in cup games , it’s still a good side but definitely not our strongest 

looking forward to seeing A.Samuel , Ramsay, B.Paton and Burroughs and how they get on

I think the Livi game showed most of our back up options are nowhere near good enough.

Alex Samuel may never score for Ross County. He’s miles away from being top flight standard.

Totally disagree. We made wholesale changes and apart from the penalty we created by far the better chances against their strong line-up. could easily have gone the other way. 

If you judge it on that then Callachan isn't good enough as he was totally anonymous yesterday.

Add any of them in individually to our first XI they would not stand out in a negative way.

 

We gave it a good go, Randall was excellent as was the away support - top drawer

How did Ramsay , Drysdale , A.Samuel , B.Paton and Burroughs perform yesterday? I never got to see the game due to work

Ramsay - excellent. Looks quick, timing of the tackle brilliant and confident on the ball. Would like to see him at right back to be honest.

Drysdale - gave away the penalty and was shaky first half but grew as the game went on. Also looks brilliant at taking the ball out from the back.

A.Samuel - meh. Guys a workhorse but if I went up front I’d run around a lot too so does that make me a player. He’s got absolute tree trunk legs as well which I didn’t realise until yesterday. Other than that I’m struggling for positives.

B.Paton - slightly anonymous. Similarities to his brother in terms of technique and range of passing, but never really had an influence on the game if I’m being honest.

Burroughs - genuinely lost with Burroughs as I don’t know what his best position is. I thought he was terrible yesterday if I’m honest and I don’t like slating players but he looked absolutely burst after half an hour. Positional sense was all over the place meaning Randall had double the work to do. I liked him at full back earlier on in the season and that is probably his best position but I sincerely hope we don’t see him on the wing again.

I noticed this as well, especially in the second half. Randall looked like he would have caused Livi some problems down that flank if Burroughs had at least offered him someone to overlap. There was a guy that kept screaming forward every time Randall got the ball, but there was no County player within 25 yards of him to pass it to.

Can't argue with the rest of your summary, although I don't appear to be as convinced as yourself about Ramsay. He was alright, don't get me wrong, but I'd also be keen to see him at full back.

He's Craig Curran without the goalscoring instincts.

My dad has a Craig Curran mug.  Its been through the dishwasher so many times now his face has almost completely faded.  Faded like the memory of him up front laying it off for Boyce to slot home.  Sad times all round.

Just days before window shuts and Malky in the papers stating he’s not going to sign players if they are no better than what we currently have in the squad fair enough but how bad a player is he looking at that is no better than A Samuel.

I find it a bit embarrassing when a top flight club has insufficient numbers to make up a bench makes us look very tinpot.

After Livingston cup game & Dundee Utd game I think it’s obvious we have insufficient players with injuries & suspensions in this busy period  we desperately need extra bodies and please no more loan signings
