ICT -V- Ross County

Recommended Posts

Well I am on ma way home on the train. As far as I am concerned the better team won and we are in the next round. In the first half, until Vigurs scored as good a goal as you can get - as in the first game - we were a class above and if we had hit a second we could have waltzed it.

County were really up fer it and showed that they had far more to prove than we did. The conditions favoured the underdog and affected our footballing prowess. Some of our players had an off day but - feck me - at the end of the day it is all about who scores the most goals - and we feckin did.

That was County - in the second half - at 150% and us playing at 70-80% - so what does that tell ya. Plus we would have capitulated before and despite putting on an apparent remake of the Alamo - it was more like feckin Bannockburn.

And we played the same starting eleven again and we kept our winning run going. It will be a different story when we feck them on 02/01/2013.

It wasn't pretty at times and I thought we weren't really at the races in the second half but we grinded out the win and that's all that matters

Billy McKay must be getting closer to getting a full international call up for Northern Ireland as each game goes by and he keeps scoring

I do worry that we will see offers coming in for him next month though as the lad has really put himself in the shop window this season so far

Vigurs goal is superb, but I don't think he did himself any favors with the celebration. I did notice he was pointing to his name as he strode back for the re start too.

 

To read that he'd also gestured to a fan at full time too is a disgrace.

He's become some what of a Dougie Imrie character for me - All that talent, but his attitude, ego and arrogance let him down

Both got attitude and thats why Terry let them go!

Not condoning coin throwing or running on the pitch but celebrating in front of opposing fans is not cool and has crept in more and more. It used to be a no no but you see it more and more recently. Shows a distinct lack of class.

 

Scoring good goals and being a **** is one thing but when you stop scoring good goals then your just a **** - Vigurs take note.

I think it's absolutely brilliant up to a point. I had no complaints about Vigurs and Shinnie from earlier games. I don't know what Vigurs did last night but you can tell he really hates us now with all his over the top celebrations.

For all the fans who were at the stadium for the 1st time , the quality of football is usually far better but last night was more about winning than showing off on the pitch.

Some absolute comedy gold on Over The Bridge tonight! Well worth a look for a laugh.

The Antonio Reguero thread is particularly entertaining. What a bunch of roasters, get over it.

I love it how they are saying that we are bitter and seething over vigurs and 'hes got under our skin', while they have a thread on reguero and continue to greet bout shinnies celebration in the 1st derby.

One word to describe their behaviour....

Riddled!!

How is it that the Motherwell/Aberdeen game has over 5 minutes of highlights but ours has only 2 and a half, despite having the same number of goals? I can see that there were an awful lot more shots on goal from Aberdeen than either us or C*unty managed combined, but our match wasn't THAT bad, was it??

You can't complain about people celebrating in front of us after we've given them a shedload of abuse.  When Imrie scored against us some of the people shouting at him were going mental, I remember thinking "you've just called the guy a paedo for an hour, what do you think he's going to do?"

 

All good fun and part of the game.

Totally agree Chris, all the stuff with Vigurs was banter.  He celebrates in front of us and gets dogs abuse.  I celebrate in front of him at the end and get a bit of abuse back, all fair game I think.

Agree with this. if you dish it out then you have to expect it back! As least we are not moaning about anything and everything like on the otb forum. Some of it is comedy gold.

Banter. Get on with it (except Adams. What a sanctimonious walloper)

 

That comment deserves a like purely for using such a brilliant term! :lol: havent heard it used in ages, quite apt as well! :lol:
