I'm in - however, what I find strange and somewhat worrying, is the length of contract hasn't been announced. I hope we haven't show them disrespect by offering them a 1 year deal but at the same time, hope we haven't got down the ICT route and offered a novice a 4 year deal.

Happy with the appointment, but concerned by this.

I'm sure both guys are very capable of speaking up for themselves and I don't see Roy disrespecting either of these long-term club employees

The thing that does bode well though is that we have two guys who won't be making massive demands of the club like fancy cars, big houses etc - both guys WANT to work for Ross County and love living up here......that'll do for me!

Also a bit under the radar but the appointment of RB as reserve team manager looks a positive as well.

Ferguson was one of the 'Culbokie 7', so if there's ever an excuse to post this video again:

I'm going to be shot down for this, but am I the only one on here a bit worried about the haste of the decision to make Ferg and Ketts official permanent mangers?

The Coyle appointment, with his track record over the last 10 years, has to rank amongst the most bizarre and awful decisions ever made by any club anywhere. (feel free to read my posts on that one and speak to fans at Blackburn, Houston, Wigan and Bolton).

It was an excellent decision to appoint them interim managers after the Coyle fiasco, but I'm not certain we shouldn't have waited till the dust has settled on whether we're still in the Premiership or not next season. Take the summer to coolly look at our possibilities and then decide who'll be the best option to either retain our status or help us get promotion. It might well be Ferg and Ketts but it could also be someone with more managerial experience. No-one doubts F & K's loyalty to the club, desire to do well etc. but even from their personal point of view could it be too soon?

I think you make a good point. I'm actually in favour of them being the management team, however, you do raise some valid questions and the tactical mistakes over the last few weeks have left me very concerned and wondering if they are the right management team for the club at this moment in time.

The squad has remained more or less the same over the course of the season. A few new faces here and there and a couple shown the door. Unfortunately, we’re on our third management team and the squad is still underperforming. Pointless criticising Fergie and Ketts. A clear out of players is required whichever league we play in next season. At the moment I couldn’t give a damn whether we win, lose or draw on Friday. Scunnered!!!

I'm all for Ketts/fergie and wish them all the luck and success they deserve although I do retain some reservations such as has it come too early for them,?
Will they have the respect of the so called big name players like Ngog, Davies etc and the players brought in by Coyle?
How good are their contacts for bringing in new players with them both being at county for so long?
I'm also hoping they don't show blind loyalty to underperforming fans favourites.

It's not over yet - and if we do end up going down then it 'll have been due to issues earlier in the season. I have full faith in these two guys to build a team of players who will give 100% for Ross County - have faith please!

There will be nobody hurting more right now than Ketts and Fergie!

Saturday saw Kettlewell & Ferguson six months into the job as Co-Managers. Certainly passed by quite quickly.

Since taking over, league wise they have managed eight wins, five draws and recorded just four losses (and obviously two of them came in a higher division).

Just wondering what the general consensus on the pair is? Certainly seems in recent weeks there are more people questioning some of their decisions. Which when you consider we have scored the most goals in the league, and have the tightest defence seems quite odd.

Personally speaking, think they have done an okay job, my main concern is that they still don't seem confident on one formation, seems to be different tweaks here and there every weekend. Of course our injury problems don't help this. A lack of pace seems to be the biggest issue, and I would hope they both have players in mind to take in, in January to rectify the issue. Certainly could be a pivotal point of the season, as I can't see many other sides taking too many players in.

We have two very winnable games before the big one away to Ayr in a couple of weeks, I wonder if we see anything less than nine points, would Roy be forced to make a decision? This is a huge season for the club with Promotion being a must.

Really?? Can't believe you're seriously thinking that way.
Ferg n Ketts have steadied our sinking ship and if it takes a couple of seasons to get things right then they should be given them, no question.
McCoist, with all rangers millions(somebody's millions anyway), didn't secure promotion at the 1st time of asking!

I must admit I'm a bit baffled at some of our fans moaning after Saturday's game.
We won 3 points, yet some still moan - I guess sometimes some peple are not happy unless they're unhappy.

To me Ketts and Fergi have done a great job - they've assembled a decent squad, one that has good depth to it.
But they have also re-found a bit of the spirit the club has been missing over the last few years.
They've taken in players who are more than capable in this league and improved them. - Mullin a prime example, he's already scored more goals than he did for the whole of last season.

We're scoring goals regularly, we're relatively tight at the back and the squad is looking fitter than any team we've had over the last 5 years IMO - so what's to improve?

We've not had out worried to seek injury wise, which is why a good depth of squad has been welcomed.

If there was one question to ask over Fergi/Ketts. then it's the injuries we are picking up in training. Are we training too hard?

Either way, we're 2 points off the top of the league... So to me there is no decision for Roy to make!

Unless we are winning 3-0 every week, some people will never be happy.

Can't argue with any of that - for me also, there is no decision for Roy to make - allow the guys to get on with the job - they are both well aware what the priority is for this season - let's get behind them and help them achieve it.

Unhappy is possibly too strong a word- we're second in the league, gave Hibs a hell of a game in the cup and have a decent shout of getting to another Challenge Cup Final. I'm always going to support the team at the ground home and away, but considering our squad (even with injuries), I think a lot of the football we've played this year is not great.

In little bursts we've been fantastic (first half vs Ayr, Dunfermline away) but too often we're slack and slow- a more clinical team than Dunfermline would have seriously punished us on Saturday, as Dundee United did and Ayr came close to doing some when we beat them 2-1.

The parts are there to make a seriously good team, but I'm still not sure Ketts and Ferg have quite found it yet. Leaving Cowie on last Saturday was a prime example, screamed out for Draper to move into midfield, bring on Grivosti at centre half and give us some bite in midfield as every long ball played with pace into the channels was looking dangerous.

We are doing fine regardless of our injuries Ketts and Fergie are doing well IMO .

It is on the other side of the touch line the problem lies with LACK of support the small gathering of Dunfermline supporters were more vocifiouris than the whole of county support , Rember when team used to run out from tremendous reception especially Jail end , Ritchie always led players to supporters ,

Problem with us JAILEND needs looked at ,where has all the support gone ,long time passing ————-scattered decimated , the day ROY makes a decision to do something about the hen house the better, need more match ongoings ,the old penalty kicks before match , challenge From stands half time 5 From west stand 5 from east stand Wee challenge ,winners play 5 from jail end Start of next home game , what we are doing for charities shoukd be told loud and clear , because we give to charities freely .supportrers need to know county ARE community club ,before you lambast me I’m only giving my opinion on how to ramp up support ,if there is better ideas That would be great ,because right now nothing happening , to gee the players up ,
We are the staggies

There is no decision to be made, management are doing just fine, above expectations imo, Roy made a decision on McIntyre and look what happened.

Despite neillson being an absolute dick I think Dundee Utd will win the league, biggest budget, fanbase etc and the team that everyone including officials want to see back in the premiership, we won't be far behind though and that should not be seen as a failure.
The recent dip in performances may be a worry for some, but I'm sure it's just temporary,
Now for my own controversial comment, does anyone else think our dip in form has coincided with Marcus Fraser being back in the team?
