Usually not bad against Aberdeen.
Actually feel a bit more confident for this one than I did on Wednesday.

Hopefully get a result up there and Motherwell take points off Rangers Quite Good

Braving the elements to go up for this one. After managing to secure a brief.

They’ve clearly had a couple decent results but are also carrying a lot of injuries. Got to be hopeful we can get at their make shift full backs

First game against them was actually a good contest against two similarly matched teams. They seem to have turned the corner so expecting a hard gemme. Another draw I reckon Warnock

I’m hoping that after their efforts at Ibrox they’re struggling and are downbeat about the result. Really need to get 3 points after all of our draws recently.

A point wouldn’t be a disaster, but I’d like to see us lat down a marker or a statement of intent for going forward, especially with Dundee United coming up at Tynecastle.

At some point people just have to relax and enjoy the best Scottish league season in 30 years where everyone can beat everyone.

Ross county are managed by an ex English premier league manager, at the foot of the league just beat Dundee 5-0 with Charlie Adam, Leigh Griffiths and Jason Cummings in their ranks, amongst other very decent players.

Aberdeen are playing some of their best football in years and are 8th, they just can’t get that defence organised (although the clean sheet at Hibs suggests this is being fixed)

He would’ve lasted longer in England if it wasn’t for his abysmal hot takes.

I thought it was an absolutely pish game I must admit, we didn't play well that day.

As far as I can see he managed 18 top flight games before getting the sack. All in all he's a disgraced former Championship manager who is rock bottom of the league with 1 win in 11. There's other areas to look at to prove the league is up for grabs than claiming County are a strong side.

The Cardiff fans wanted him to stay iirc, was thinking back to why he got sacked but it was for the texts wasn't it? Laugh replaced by solksjaer I think who was a fucking disaster, that was around the time they changed their home top to red and that Tony You What

I remember the outrage when McKay was sacked, with Cardiff fans steaming into Vincent Tan. I think they were doing okay at the time, but everyone's tune changed once the texts came out.

Aye he'd done a superb job there and none of the fans wanted him sacked. Think the texts actually came out a bit later when it looked like he was being lined up for another Prem job.

Like the optimism, Floyd but I usually go with the they've been done over there and will be even more determined (to do the diet Huns!). Saying that, i believe we're playing reasonably well, and perhaps the pressure of playing at home will see the Dons opening up which I think will benefit us. An open game, mibbe? Monty Umm

Don't see where the goals come from right now TBH.

(Before the stats get wheeled out - I know we do score, and have scored a fair few earlier in the season.)

Without Boyce or getting our standard penalty I don't see where we make the chances to score from open play.

Best we can hope for is something in the region of 0-0, 0-1, 1-1 going by Wednesday.

Aye but Rog, it was him that got them promoted in the first place bud. He had them comfortably away from the drop zone when he was pied.

County are strong for a 12th placed side. No doubt. The league is mad this year.

Ross County currently have a better manager than Manchester United. Monty Oh Well

Shan how we played Aberdeen at the start of the season when they were flying, didn’t get a go at them when they were pish for 2 months and now face them again once they’ve finally clicked Lampoon

I get where you’re coming from, but Aberdeen always raise their game against Rangers. Their record against Rangers compared to their record against Cheltic is an absolute disgrace!

They’ve got injuries at the minute and we need to try and exploit the likes or Hayes & Campbell who are essentially midfielders playing as full backs.

I would also like to see Scott Brown get his knee destroyed early doors, but I’ll settle for 3 points to Hearts if that doesn’t happen. Laugh
