Can't be anyone but Yogi for Manager of month.

Noooo...the award is a curse, give it Aberdeen or Dundee Utd :wink::ohmy:

 

Getting the MoTM award for January...and then carrying on in the same manner, must be the ultimate indicator of a good manager!

 

A good win against a side desperate to get back to winning ways...hats off to Yogi for using plan B in the second half, it sounded a bit of a struggle in the first half.

 

Another golden double for me this weekend with my other side winning away from home as well

With Gringo on this one. Please please give it to someone else.....

ANOTHER AGONISING AFFAIR AGAINST ADMIRABLE ACCIES     There was as much chance of seeing a goal in that first half as being served in one of the local hostelries. However I was later advised that

571 away fans. I know there will be a couple of neutrals in there but that's a cracking effort. With the success of Tuesday has this done more to highlight the issue of pricing in Scottish football?

Sounds like a bad one for Dean...but we have a very good replacement in Esson!

Eagle4Caley, you could be on for an FA Cup / Scottish Cup double!!

Some of the results in the FA Cup yesterday were insane! Delighted that Filip Morais played a big part in defeating Chelsea yesterday. Although he was only with us for a short time in Inverness, I always thought he looked quite useful.

 

Interestingly, the 3rd goal was scored by Andy Halliday - who the commentator, on the highlights, said was Scottish. As I'd not heard of him, I looked at the internet, and his wiki page suggests he started out at Ross County!

 

Noticed Bristol City v West Ham on BBC1 at the moment. If that was an artificial surface it would resemble a Subbuteo pitch with the 'scoring area' line!

As AM rightly says Accies were pressing us very high up the park and not letting us play it out from the back like JH likes us to do

 

Where did I say this?  :wink:

 

 

It was a lazy copy and paste. Caught out!

Hughes won MotM in August and we didn't exactly have a bad September. This "curse" is a myth.

Never mind Manager of The Month, carry on like this and JH will have no real rival for Manager Of The Season.

Hughes won MotM in August and we didn't exactly have a bad September. This "curse" is a myth.

We lost 3 of the 4 games we played in September including going out of the League Cup! That was after a run of 4-1-0 in the previous 5 games that effectively won the award.

Bizarrely, the exact same fate happened last season when we started 4-1-0 which saw Butcher get the August award. We then lost 3 of the next 4!

And the August before that, County started their first 'SPL' campaign and got through the month unbeaten to extend their run to over a year and 38 matches without defeat.

Derek Adams award preceded the inevitable start of a losing run in the very next game!

 

To be fair, there are probably countless examples of teams continuing their good form after getting the award - but that doesn't make for a good story!

ANOTHER AGONISING AFFAIR AGAINST ADMIRABLE ACCIES

 

attachicon.giften_pence.jpg

 

There was as much chance of seeing a goal in that first half as being served in one of the local hostelries. However I was later advised that the local publicans had feared an influx of Old Firm fans due to the Cellic playing early doors and Sevco getting postponed. Anyone we managed to squeeze in to the Tap to raise a dram to Frank McAvoy and Alex O'Neil. If you had been doing a pay at half time to define your entertainment rating then 10p may just have been feckin accurate !!

 

To be fair to Hamilton I thought that they bossed the first half whilst not really looking like a threat. To be fair also we did look solid at the back throughout and it was a couple of indisciplined moments of our making that jangled the first half nerves. Deano had one of his moments after 5 opening minutes when he clattered Meekings with an attempted clearance sclaff. The other was yet another needless booking for Gary Warren but the spirited Jesus Garcia then sent a free-kick over the bar. Fortunately the much derided Imrie also sclaffed his chance as well. Forgive me if I am wrong but our only efforts were both from Greg Tansey and only one was on target and did not exactly test Pinocchio McGovern. Deano to be fair redeemed himself holding a decent strike from Tony Andreu. And then they sold out of feckin pies before the half time whistle.

 

Yet again we came out in the second half like men possessed. I am really not sure what happened in the first 45 but we looked like we were going for a 1-0 on the break. We hardly put two passes together and then we play them literally off the pitch. Some of the passing and especially the movement was a joy to behold. Canning looked very nervy and perhaps the onus of player manager may be too much for him. His slip let in wee Billy and although Pinocchio saved well that was the cue for a change in the bossing. Grant Gillespie saw appeals for a Hamilton penalty turned down early in the second period but that really was the only scare we got from then forwards, Wee Billy then showed another side to his repertoire and set up both the goals - the second being as good a team effort as I have seen in a while. On 53 minutes Wee Billy looped a pass towards Graeme Shinnie, whose his shot rebounded off both McGovern and Gillespie before nestling in the net. It may have been slightly fortunate but it was well deserved. Pinnochio then prevented wee Billy and then turned a Meekings header wide.

 

With fifteen minutes to go we made the game safe with a delightful passing move. Again wee Billy and Ross Draper were the architects - combining down the left to provide an inviting cross that Ross duly slammed past a helpless Pinnochio. Draper possibly could have scored himself but he laid it off to Nick Ross. It was noticeable that the second goal heralded a stampede of departures from the away end as the Old Firm hangers on decided to leave and head for the Buckfast shop. And two eminent gypsies left early doors as well from the midst of the away support. Substitute Aaron Doran passed up a late opportunity to add gloss to the scoreline. But to put an absolute damper on the day Deano collapsed, under no apparent pressure, and it looked like he had jarred his knee. It was more worrying that it took almost 4 minutes to treat him and he was carted off on a stretcher. That also gave rise to the biggest cheer of the day for the return of the Esson. Lets hope Deano's injury is not as bad as once feared but I would say the we are extremely fortunate to have Ryan as back up.

 

So we had seven shots in the second half with six on target, 60-40 possession and four corners. We only committed five fouls over the 90 minutes and, irritatingly to me, two of them resulted in two more needless bookings with Draper following Warren into the book. I even thought Brian Colvin had a good day at the office.

 

I will leave it to Yogi to sum up the day - "I didn't enjoy the game .. There was a real apprehension before the game. We were getting a bit complacent and it showed in the first half... Second half we got back to what we're all about. Even if it wasn't a great performance it showed me the spirit and that's what got us the win. They were the better team in the first half and played some nice football. In terms of us getting on the ball and making things happen that's the worst I've seen us for a long while...But, credit to them in terms of still keeping that clean sheet... We're punching well above our weight. Our main goal at the start of the season was to stay up. I'm serious.. I'm just lucky I'm working with a bunch of boys that want to improve as footballers. We've got a happy, spirited team. It's all about getting results and if you're getting results your job is made easy". That must be the first time that I have wholly concurred with the closing statement from one of our managers :notworthy:

SMILEYMOMETER :smile: 

 

DEANO :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  To be fair he had little to do but did his job when asked - GET WELL SOON BIG MAN

 

RAVEN :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  A quiet day at the office. Did not really notice him that much.

 

MEEKINGS :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Again effective and nearly scored with a cracking header.

 

WARREN :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Again solid but I do wish that he would cut out the needless fouls which lead to needless bookings and needless suspensions.

 

TREMARCO :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Humble pie time fer moi !!  Excellent performance and that included coming forwards. Much improved an my MOM

 

WILLIAMS :smile:  :smile: :smile:  Another who was quietly effective and played in a more defence minded mode. And possibly suffered from the performances of Tremarco and Shinnnie and our preference to play down the left.

 

DRAPER :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Excellent "holding" display but the same negative comments as Warren

 

TANSEY :smile: :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Reminds me of a modern day Gary McAllister and that IS a compliment

 

ROSS :smile: :smile:  :smile:  Not quite sure what his role was but will give similar comment as to Williams. Did he take his goal well with calmness and assurity. 

 

McKAY :smile: :smile:  :smile:  :smile:  Poor wee Billy must have been as frustrated as the fans in the first half but showed in the second that there is more to his game than goalscoring. And his constant movement was a joy to watch and relive.

That will explain why we only won 2-0.  10 men for the whole game would be a disadvantage. ;-)

Watching the higlights now I realise why we struggled in the first half - Accies parked their bus!

I was going to say that at the time but I knew that Yngwie would pelt me with part of his massive pie collection.
