Derek Adams: Ross County showing they are no SPL pushover

Ivan Sproule's goal separated the sides and stretched County's unbeaten run to seven games, moving them up to eighth in the Scottish Premier League, just three points off third-placed Inverness.

"I'm delighted with the progress we're making," Adams said. "We've had a very good season so far, closed the gap between ourselves and the teams in the top half of the table, and we've moved ourselves 21 points ahead of Dundee.

"We're three points off Inverness, who have had a terrific season and we have had nearly the same number of clean sheets as Celtic. We're up there.

"You always start from the back. George Graham will tell you that from his time at Arsenal in the 1980s and 1990s.

"Listen, we've come from the Second Division to the Premier League and these things don't happen overnight. We've been working for five years.

"We've had five years of continuity and a team we've had to build year on year.

"This is not a new thing it's a thing that has been moving along. Nobody should be surprised."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
