I will be the first to admit that when this season started it was matches like today’s against Kilmarnock F.C. (who finished 7th in the SPL last season) that I hoped Ross County would win. It would, therefore, be easy to look at today’s result as a negative one, but that would be incredibly short-sighted. The fact is that the goal remains- at least according to my math- for the club to have 37 when all is said and done and they are right on track for that. To achieve this goal County would need to average approximately .97 points/match- at present County are averaging a very healthy 1.4 points/match. Simply put, you just can’t have a negative attitude towards that kind of achievement.
It would also be short-sighted to focus on what the club hasn’t achieved so far and not on what it has. The facts are these:
Again, while I would certainly like to see the County offense get going sooner rather than later, it is difficult to find much else to criticize with the club’s efforts so far. There is even, if you’ll permit me, something almost methodical, machine-like, to their SPL season so far. It’s almost as though the players are just marching forward chanting “Just get the result, just get the result, etc.”
County will face a tough test next Friday evening when they travel to Dundee to play Dundee United, but I’m sure they’ll bet up for it.
Get in there, County!
