Focus on the league - Season 4 Episode 9
Peter, Robbie and Ramsay are together in person for the first time! It didn't improve chemistry in the slightest.
The boys were in the Glasgow Caledonian University recording studio for this one, but it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows as they had a double defeat against Aberdeen to break down.
They made themselves even more depressed by talking through all four goals which were scored by Aberdeen, all while discussing how defending can be so poor, or "amateurish" as someone put it.
Through gritted teeth, there was admiration for a goal scored by a man who played for a team.
There was great deliberation over Baldwingate where no one really agreed or had anything too profound to add. We did feel bad for him though.
In absence of the adventures of Robbie, he declared his love for Kyle Turner, and also his hatred for Kyle Turner.
In Peter's favourite segment, there was not so much good, lots of bad, and lots of ugly.
There were attempts made to lift the mood while looking forward to the upcoming Hearts clash but they fell mostly on deaf ears.
Please follow us on socials @Staggiesview and please, we're begging you, leave us some questions or feedback - even give us some criticism. But in all seriousness, we would love some questions.
Mon the Staggies :)
They've just got big long limbs - Season 4 Episode 8
The usual trio of Robbie, Ramsay and Peter are back behind their microphones for another episode of season 4.
Robbie opens the episode by telling us how he lost his keys in his own pocket...
The panel then dissect the point against Livingston while detailing the fine form of Simon Murray
There are some interesting shouts in the good, the bad and the ugly this week, which leads the boys onto a large tangent surrounding the matchday catering at the club...
There is a brand new segment on the podcast as the boys deliver the inaugural and terribly named 'Tweet of the Week'
The Staggies View XI returns for big debate as we preview the away tie against Aberdeen and the midweek home clash against... Aberdeen.
This week's ViewPoint is a fun one. We asked for each other's dream Ross County 5-a-side team made up of your favourite players from your time following the club. Not necessarily those who were the best players, but we managed to throw in some entertaining names of those we loved.
Please follow our new Instagram @Staggiesview! We should have some extra content coming your way on there.
We hope you enjoy this episode and as always if you have any feedback or questions for us, don't hesitate to drop us a message.
Mon the Staggies :)
Pie always lands the right way up - Season 4 Episode 7
Everyone's least favourite trio are back on the Staggies View panel after they enjoyed some time away for the international break.
Peter Mackay is joined by Ramsay Banks and Robbie Macdonald as they begin the podcast by getting through the club's big news in the past two weeks and wrapping up their thoughts on Ross County's summer transfer window.
Golspie local and County fan Jack Howard makes a long overdue return to the mic as he takes us through a strange North of Scotland Cup encounter between Golspie Sutherland and Ross County. The adventures of Robbie returns this week but this time on the rail as he delivers a bone to pick with ScotRail.
The panel looks back at their very enjoyable day out in Ayrshire as Robbie declares his surprise at Kilmarnock not being a sh**hole.
Ramsay hits out with a damning statement that Killie pies are overrated...
The good, the bad, the ugly is back and better than ever!
It is also preview time as the guys look ahead with confidence to the visit of Livingston to the Global Energy Stadium.
Rounding up this week's antics is the topic of best and worst Ross County chants... We need your help to come up with some suggestions so leave us your thoughts on X @StaggiesView or get as us on Facebook. We are also in the process of setting up a new Instagram so keep an eye out for that coming your way!
Thanks as always for listening to our nonsense and come on the Staggies! :)
Dinner with Roy - Season 4 Episode 6
Peter Mackay is somehow still in the hosting seat as he welcomes his least favourite Staggies View member Robbie Macdonald onto the podcast, as well as Ramsay Banks who makes his highly anticipated return.
Ramsay tells us about his time in America while Robbie went to watch Barbie with his sister to check if Martin Woods had a starring role.
The adventures of Robbie returns for a bumper segment as he details his disastrous pre-match travel on Saturday.
The panel broke down the loss to Rangers and put forward their all-important good, bad and ugly selections.
In section two it is preview time and we look to Killie and discuss how much their good form could hurt us, whilst Robbie takes a low dig at Harry Paton, which was followed by a segment which had to be removed for legal reasons.
We love nothing better than debate, and there was plenty of that as the lads tried to decide who they want to start in the Staggies View XI.
If you were hosting a Ross County Sunday roast, which three people would you invite? That was the big question of the week as we fantasised about having dinner with Roy Macgregor, as Robbie thinks he would probably bring an expensive gift.
We would love to have more questions sent into the show, so please, if you would like to hear us talk more drivel send us a question on Facebook (Staggies View) or Twitter/X (@StaggiesView).
We hope you enjoyed this episode - it is a longer one but hopefully still enjoyable.
Thanks and mon the Staggies :)
The Malky Finger - Season 4 Episode 5
Peter Mackay hosts Robbie Macdonald in a two-man podcast panel to discuss the cup success in Robbie's new favourite town: Airdrie.
Robbie tells us why he loved Malky Mackay Mackay showing his appreciation for the supporters at the end of the match before the pair deliver the weekly roundup of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Looking ahead to Rangers visiting Dingwall there is some not-so-quiet confidence ahead of the Sky Sports clash.
Peter and Robbie then waffle heavily over some of their best and worst away days in their time supporting the football club.
Do not forget to follow us on socials where you can join the conversation with us.
We hope you enjoyed this episode - and we also hope you are as bemused as us as to how we have managed to make it five episodes in five weeks - crazy stuff.
Cake & Irn Bru - Season 4 Episode 4
There is a debutant on the Staggies View panel this week as Liam Miller joins Peter Mackay, Ramsay Banks, and Robbie Macdonald for the fourth episode of season four!
It's been a busy week for the Highlands premier club as the Staggies picked up their first victory in the new league campaign over St Johnstone. The lads delve into that game after some more peculiar chat - this week about accordions...
The club dished out new contracts this week to some of the most critical players in Dingwall, including Mr Randalldinho who has the SV panel reeling about his display.
It is Airdrie away next up in League Cup action, and the guys are expecting a tough test on a tough surface down in the central belt...
Prepare your ears for a thirty-minute debate as we rank the modern-era Ross County managers from worst to best. We couldn't decide on the top spot - so that's where we need your help. Add to our debate over on X (Twitter) @staggiesview and tell us why the hell we are so wrong! (or right, but I doubt that will be the case.)
We would love it if you could leave us a review and rating on Spotify, it means a lot!
He'd be great in Barbie - Season 4 Episode 3
In Episode three of this season, Peter Mackay is back in the host's chair accompanied by his not-so-beloved friends Ramsay Banks and Robbie Macdonald.
They kick off the episode with a bizarre chat about Ross County and Barbie...
The trio then delves into the Staggies' performance down in Glasgow against Celtic.
Ryan Leak entered the building during the week and the panel explained why they think he is the perfect man to stop the defence from being so LEAKy.
Before previewing the visit of St Johnstone in our first home league match of the campaign, Robbie delivers an exciting ode to what he deems 'the best pub in Scotland.'
As usual, we wrapped up by answering a few of the listeners question from social media.
We hope you enjoyed this episode, and more so hope that you are enjoying our efforts to become more consistent. Don't forget to follow us on X (Twitter) @staggiesview.

To wrap up the episode we answered questions from the listeners on social media! You can follow us @staggiesview on socials.
