At this point I have to admit that I’m speechless.
28 matches into the 2012-2013 Scottish Premier League season and Ross County F.C. are tied on points for second place (with Highland Derby rivals Inverness Caledonian Thistle F.C.) and third only on the basis of goal differential. Let me put that a couple of other ways…
County are 27 points away from any kind of relegation danger with 10 matches to go- I think they’re safe.
County are in a Europa League place and only +5 goals away from a Champions League place. Read that again.
By all accounts today’s match at Pittodrie in Aberdeen was a drab affair for the first three quarters of the match. Until that is, the savant that is County manager Derek Adams took hot-as-a-pistol Ivan Sproule out of the match (Sproule was not happy about it) and replaced him with Gary Glen. Within ten minutes Rocco Quinn crossed a ball in to Steffan Wohlfarth (who came on for Sam Morrow in the 64th minute), who flicked it on to Gary Glen who then hammered the ball into the net from 8 yards out.
County safely rode out the last 13 minutes of the match.
All of this done as the current “horse meat” scandal in Europe prevented the serving of meat pies at the ground. Instead supporters had to make due with chicken pies and macaroni pies. All of this in Aberdeenshire, the land where Angus beef cattle were created.
