    Having suffered from depression some years ago and anxiety ( which is awful ) I was thinking about pretty much anyone who may be or may know someone who is currently struggling and just needs a wee bit of a helping hand. My Dad (38) & Brother (33) both committed suicide on new years day ( several years apart ) and my wee maw (61) died unexpectedly I’ve certainly had things to think about over the years. Many of us put on a brave face ‘Aye, I’m fine, thanks for asking’ seems to be the default response when the reality is quite the opposite. As it happens, I personally really am fine, but, just wonder, I’m sure we all know perhaps one person who isn’t fine albeit ourselves or someone we know. Perhaps drop them a wee text , a call or or preferably a a visit for a wee tea over the festive season, you never know, you might just save a life. Make someone’s day, a wee card, beer, vist or hello Merry Christmas every-buddie [emoji4]

    Why would anyone be slating the club over this? Guy had a contract, contract ran out, he wants to go back south to be closer to family. That's that, really. There's heehaw anyone could have done to convince him to stay. Evetyone and their granny knew that we'd likely be losing Hammill and Ferdinand for a few weeks now. Really no point in getting pissy about it.

    I'm personally not arsed about how many signings we bring in, I'm more arsed about bringing in good players. At the moment of the six players that have left (Coulson, NBM, Willock, Kirkpatrick, McShane and Hammill) only one will have a material difference on the team. If any or all of Eckersley, Heaton, King or Kpekawa leave we'll notice no difference whatsoever in the team. So you could be taking ten players off the wage bill in total, and really only miss one of them. Bring in four good players to address key weaknesses in the squad and we're back in the game. This really isn't about getting numbers in, it's about getting quality in, and fixing the issues in the team (like no left back, no wide attackers either left or right, no pace and no physicality in the final third). Quality definitely > Quantity this time around.

    It’s one win and we shouldn’t get carried away but great to get the win and boost confidence. This is a hard league to be in for clubs such as us and there will be many more setbacks this season but for now good to be celebrating a win on a Saturday night [emoji481][emoji106]

    The slaughtering of Edwards is getting boring - he's nowhere near the worst. He gives 100% and that alone is more than can be said for a lot of players in the current squad. I'd be happy to see him move on in January to make way for a better quality player, but he doesn't deserve the abuse he's been getting the last few weeks...

    Jump in a taxi, hand the driver £17 and ask him to stop and put you out when the money is used, bet you wouldn't even get anywhere close to ht (45 mins driving). Get real Shull and stop your constant monotonous Shite. How do you expect any club to survive charging £8, both clubs would lose money. I'm sure your £17 won't be missed seems it will be a one man boycott !

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!!! Absolutely brilliant day out yesterday. Fresh on the back of a Rather boozy Xmas day out on Friday we hit Motherwell. The festivities continued, and we ended up in the Cooper Suite with two of Santa’s little helpers in very fetching outfits. I knew exactly what to ask from Santa and Christmas came early. First, the fans. We turned up in numbers and we made some noise. Well done buds. That was a fantastic performance. Then there was the team. That was fighting spirit. No one crapped it when it came to tackles and challenges. Bairdy was bonkers, Hodson was harrying everyone and Cammy smith was stupendous. Did you see him run to get involved in the scrap on the edge of their box to win a ball he had no chance of winning and we got a great shot on goal as a result. Where the feck has that Cammy Smith been hiding all season. Welcome back. Lyness was outstanding, Hodson was something special, big Anton was a Rock. Hammil was quality and McGinn looked and acted like the captain we once knew. The whole team did us proud. Well done guys. The tactics. A few buds around me were moaning about our antics at the corner flag. We’ve all been there when Livi or Dumbarton done it to us and yes, it’s not pretty but FFS we needed those three points and if that’s what it takes carry on Boys. An ugly win in this league is better than a spectacular defeat any day of the week for me. So, congratulations to Oran and the team on our first away win. Loved the way Oran conducted the sing song at the end and Captain Fantastic. We just love to see you in front of a winning team. The wee boy who got your shirt at the end looked ecstatic but trust me, we all were. Big Anton also made someone happy with his shirt too. Big man jumped over the hoarding to deliver it too. I wasn’t sure he would make it. So, we can all enjoy Christmas, but seriously Guys you need to keep this going. We need two performances on the bounce. Keep this up on Boxing day and don’t deliver an inept performance on the back of a good result the way you normally do. Thank you Santa, Thank you Oran, and thank you Saints. It’s definitely bringing to look a lot like Christmas.

    Craig had McGinn, McLean, Teale, Thompson and Goodwin to build a team around. OK had Kpenya, Flynn, King, Willock and Kellerman. Not really comparing like with like

    Oh FFS. We were playing a side in third, now just a point off the top of the table. We were two down after 11 minutes, and at that time I thought we could be humiliated as Killie looked in the mood. Did well to stabilise and get back into the game, though second half we were pinned back and didn't create much. This is down to the previous manager leaving us with no centre forward of any substance (Jackson was OKs signing) and having such a hopelessly unbalanced squad that we are playing a right back as a holding midfielder. Oran's four signings, all outwith the transfer window, have all proved to be significantly better than some of the dross signed in the summer. The bench today lacked experience and quality, which probably explains the fact only one sub came on. I have faith that, on his performance so far, OK will make the right signings to improve us and keep us up.

    Reality check

    FFS we've all known for months the team OK inherited was one of "if not the worst" in over 3O years and we've had some seriously shit teams in that time, our only hope was to stay in touch until the January transfer window and by some miracle we have, on the plus side he's got the team competitive and at least well organised from the total shambles when he took over and thank feck he brought in Anton, Jackson and Hamill because they're the reason we've managed to stay with the pack........... I'm fully expecting big changes during the TW and I also think Oran will guide us to safety, we should just be thankful that we've still in with a great shout of salvaging this season after the fcuking shambles Stubbs got us into...

    I think the set up for the first half was perfect and the management team done their homework Motherwell rested their front line mid week and prepared them for today 2 up front for motherwell and we play 3 centre halfs and 2 wing backs killed any momentum they tried to achieve then of course..hit them with the sucker punch second half well done "Da Management"

    Tactically excellent and bringing on Hammill and Cammy made a huge difference to our attacking threat with them making the goal and the rest of the chances we made. Well done - that should be a great boost to our confidence. And give Lyness a longer term contract - now!

    Looks like the Oran Kearney doubters are finding it hard going. I don't think its going to get any easier for them post January !

    I'd say Smith isn't right up there on the list of players we really NEED to get rid of as a priority. I'd say if he was up in Dundee yesterday for a medical then we've initially accepted him leaving... however, we've changed the goalposts at the last second which makes me believe that someone else may have made a better offer leading us to change what is required from Utd for the deal to go through. I'd say sit tight til early next week and let's wait and see but of course you won't, you'll spend the next few hours berating everything to do with the board and those who run the club before seeing any facts, as is your whim to do. If we get both a fee for him and off the wage bill, I expect you to come on and sing the board's praises for a good bit of business done, given that you're the first to stick the boot in whenever they do poor business. Oh wait....no I f**king don't! You'll still find a criticism somewhere.

    You rate him far higher than he deserves. He has contributed a cross for 1 goal this season and is most likely to be on above average wages in our squad. He regularly has lost the ball and his marker - he is a championship player and I for one will be glad to see him off the books to fund a better replacement. Don't get me wrong - He contributed really well last season. Yet there is no room for sentimentality in our current predicament. We need a squad of players who are good enough to help us to survive and give us a platform to be a really decent team in this league.

    Ross County are at the top of the League. Why on earth would they let their club captain and top scorer leave?

    I would let Hodson go. He is apparently on a very good wage and P McGinn is a better right back anyway. Hodson has been in midfield last two games but lacks any creativity and IMHO Cammy McPherson is a far better option in midfield.

    Think he’s proved you wrong in the last two games he hasn’t deserved to be on the losing side was our best player by some distance imo

    No. Almost certain 2/3 you mention will still be here... however, if they leave it’ll be because the relevant staff at the club see them as surplus to requirements not because of ‘being hounded out by the boo boys’. Aside from this (excluding Edwards) the ‘boo boys’ give more stick to the likes of Baird and Mullen than the players you mentioned.
