Celtic (H) - Sunday 24th (2:30pm)
Hearts (A) - Saturday 30th (3:00pm)
Motherwell (H) - Saturday 7th (3:00pm)
Rangers (A) - Wednesday 11th (7:45pm)
United (H) - Saturday 14th (3:00pm)

In all honesty, I think that’s the perfect fixtures. Having had a look at Motherwell’s games, they’ve got a far harder run than us - two home games against Hearts and Rangers. For me, beating them at home is an absolute necessity if we’re going to finish 5th. Hopefully we’ll take a big support to Hearts too for the last away Sat 3pm of the season. Can’t see us getting anymore than 6pts, but we didn’t think we’d get 4 from our last 3 games to make it here in the first place…

 

I'll not bother with the first one but will go to to the Hearts match, then the two Saturday home games. 

Hopefully we'll do enough to get a European place 🤞

Not sure if the question has been asked recently but is Josh Sims still with the club is he the new Danny Griffin

Did he not sign a long term deal?

Well done Staggies on making the top six.  More than deserved.  Malky should be up there for manager of the year for me. 

Admirer of racists are you?

A 7 year deal on £14,000 a week - he has personally ensured that even if we did qualify for Europe, our licence would be stone deid in the water. Period. At least that's what the seething diddies on Twitter are spouting so it must be gospel.

I'd thought that he'd been on the bench recently but after a quick check it appears that the last time Josh Simms managed the bench, was 19th Feb, away loss to hibs.

Is there a space for him in the team though, who would you drop, Charles-Cook, Hungbo, Spittal? I don't think he gets game time even if he was fit.

I get the vibe he was signed as a replacement for Hungbo for next season as the chances of us getting him back are very slim.

My first game as a county fan was the 11-0 win over St Cuthbert in 1993.

 

Mine too! My second was an absolutely fucking brutal game at Telford Street against Caley that I'm 80% sure was a 0-0 & that 9 year old me was convinced County should've gotten a stonewall penalty.

I don't know about getting Hungbo back. Watford are one of those teams that loan out 30 players a year. If they stay up I'd say there was a chance (though I have no idea how likely that is because English football is about as interesting to me as cricket), not a big one but 5% is more than 0%.

I seem to recall @Loki saying something on Twitter about the highlights from that game and that Don Cowie was ball boy? Think you can see him at the start here (if the story is true of course).

Aye, pretty sure that's him.

Cheers for posting those highlights, it was some team we had back then.

Some of those goals you're left wondering if St Cuthberts even had 11 players on the park with the gaping holes in their defence. Bizarre stuff.

Would I lie to you?

Would his dad maybe playing that day too or had he retired by then?

His dad would have been finished with County at that point.  He was managing Wick Academy when they debuted in the Highland League, he may have played with them before he retired.  Not sure when he was finished at County, my first game I can remember was the 1-4 defeat by East Fife in 1990, and think he was gone by a couple of years by that point.
