Happy for wee Neil, was gutted how it ended for him at Dens.  

 

Wee hero that he is.

That free kick Allardice won from Charles-Cook!

 

 

Cook with that foul handed us the final nail in the coffin.

Really good performance from us. The midfield was excellent, Allardice and Welsh were on top most of the game and MacKay was a threat all the time. A good display from Allan as well, if he continues like this and his match sharpness improves then he’ll be a real asset in the final five games. Defensively I thought we were reasonably solid, I don’t like us against crosses but the goal was a great delivery. 

In 2018 we were struggling and our Challenge cup win gave us a big boost and we made a push for the play offs. I can see this win giving us a lot of momentum for the last few weeks of the season, it could invaluable.

Gary worries about Motherwell against Fort Martin.

I worry about Gary.

To be fair every team is a bunch of mercenaries - I doubt if there are many "I support/home team" first team players at any club, even the diddies. Just that some mercenaries come with positive attitudes and some not so. County seem to have an overabundance of the latter. Money does not buy commitment. 

Players sign for Ross County solely for the pay check from 'Uncle Roy' and largely abandon any broader competitive ambition on the park before entering the village. It should come as absolutely no surprise then that they end up with a bunch of gutless ringers every 3/4 seasons who take them down and need emptied. It's the natural end of their cycle.

Do Al Lamont and Michael Stewart genuinely dislike each other? It was hard to tell at points if they were actually bickering or were attempting their own tinpot version of Carragher and Neville's 'banter'.

I'm not having a gloat here but from that performance tonight it's hardly surprising that County are in the position they are in in the Premiership, for me over the ninety I would say that County had 20 minutes in the ninety where they looked a decent side, other than that it was stray passes, hoofs up the park, just no real determination and subbing three players at once is bad management.

Obviously overall we were the better side, Allardice was for me MoM and though at times the defence was squeaky bum they did Ok

Of course Morton are famed for attracting quality players from all over the world to *checks notes* live and play in Greenock. 

Tonight's result was not a surprise. The only disappointment is I limited my pre-match bet on ICT to £20.

We've got a midfielder at right back, a central defender at left back and Brad McKay in central defence.

Let's get this straight, Carson, on previous evidence couldn't play full back and poor old Brad was a figure of fun.

The alchemist that is Neil McCann is to be revered and the very best to our players who have proved onlookers such as this one to be less than reliable

That’s a regular occurrence, we’ve had four players subbed at once on occasion. 4-5 months in and he still doesn’t know his strongest team.

How long til Dan Mackay and Allardice are tempted over the bridge by Uncle Roy? 

Danny Mackay will head for better things as will Allardice.

Probably late to the party but when did McCann take over at ICT? I thought Robertson was doing okay there?
Robbo is on undefined compassionate leave due to bereavement. Our second Scott kelleher is out due to long term illness. Mcann and Billy dodds have been standing in for a while.

Really not sure why you thought that would work as a comeback, given that we don't have some clown of a backer artificially keeping the club a couple of levels above its natural level. 

Ross County are what Gretna would have been if their owner hadn't guzzled Lucozade and chain-smoked fags for forty years. The same problems will come back to bite the playing squad time and time again.

I'm from the Black Isle, Sophia. I'm fully aware Dingwall is a shithole.

Being eloquent and being interesting aren't the same thing, champ.
