This factfile is brought to you by the realisation that in the week that self confessed Sevcovian, Amy McDonald, was made a member of the Scotland Supporters Club, it was clear this jumped up schemie tramp will be singing with all the tunefulness of a f*cking landslide at the opening of the Commonwealth Games at our stadium.
We had a glut of injuries around October last year but these have come earlier this season,”
“You take into account we had a rigorous pre-season and we have done a lot of travelling, that may be a factor in why we are picking up a few knocks and strains.
“But I am not overly concerned, I am hoping that the majority of those boys will train on Sunday and we have a vibrant and bigger squad for Tuesday.”
How They Doing:
They are a tight unit that haven’t made to many changes from the team that won promotion by 24 points last season.
Their squad is full of players who have played in the SPL and in truth look in better shape than most First Division teams who take the step up to the SPL. They didn’t cheap French cosmetic surgery.
They also have a likeable manager who allows my Ross Tokely fascination to continue.
Any Ex Hupes
Paul Lawson and Rocco Quinn are the ex Tims in the pack. I don’t think those dollies will do much dealing.
36 league games unbeaten and they have managed two clean sheets this season. They haven’t managed to score though. Draws against Motherwell and Aberdeen are an impressive return so far.
They will be looking for Colin McMenamin to score their first goal in the SPL. Though, after 180 mins without a goal I’m sure they would be gladly see anyone bulge the net. Even Ross Tokely.
So clean they have their own Daz advert with the postman from Take The High Road.
Record Against Us (Since The Lennon Revolution)
They had a glorious day at Hampden at the start of our journey under Lennon but last season we had a hard fought 2-0 victory up the Dingwall.
How We Looking
Like an episode of Casualty. 10 players injured or out (Dylan McGeouch (broken jaw), Daryl Murphy (hamstring), Gary Hooper (hamstring), Anthony Stokes (ankle), Mo Bangura (thigh), Rabiu Ibrahim (groin), Paddy McCourt (groin), Scott Brown (hip), James Forrest (groin) and Filip Twardzik (ankle) ) and one eye on our Champions League tie on Tuesday.
I reckon none of those named above will take part tomorrow in Dingwall, which means we won’t have any of our first choice forwards available. Toothless?
Our goals have been spread between, Commons, Hooper, Samaras, Ledley and Mulgrew. No rhyme or reason to the jam yet.
Two clean sheets in our last two games. One of them was away in Europe, Sir!
Wanna Win Some Money
County are great value @ 6/1 but I fancy Celtic 1-0 with Kris Commons scoring the only goal.
