    Bell, making a step up you can account for at the moment. Tremarco back after a long injury as well. The rest, that was embarrassing. Polly and Trafford were running on empty, is was obvious. There is something far wrong that full time footballers can't last 90 minutes, especially against Dumbarton and after a first half were we had the majority of the ball and playing with lite intensity with it.

    Dumbarton Football Club belongs to all of you... we, the people who play for and manage are passing through. This being football, one day we will all move on, but you will still be here, because it's your club.” Ian Murray, 4th May 2013, after keeping DFC in Division 1 against heavy odds.

    Strange to see that views and conclusions are SO similar for once.

  10. Why do you support ICT ?

    I used to work with a guy - Steve King - who told me that he had been their Chairman for a while. Looking at their website, I see that he is still responsible for website admin. He told me that one of the biggest hassles for a small club like Ware was a home tie in the FA Cup. The fans may have loved it, but it was a lot of work and expense for the club. The FA published pages and pages of rules and regulations, all of which had to be adhered to. Proper turnstiles, a certain type of barrier round the pitch, a certain number of police in and around the ground, a match programme of at least <x> pages of a minimum size, with a specified number of pages having to be in colour. And so on, and so on....

    Coming a bit late to this thread, because I was away last week. My answer to the question is that it's in my blood. My grandfather played for Citadel in the early 1920s, and was their trainer after that. He was also trainer for Thistle for some time in the early 50s. My Dad was never a player, but was Thistle secretary for a couple of seasons at the end of the 60s, just before they won the league. Up until then, I had supported Caley, but no 12 year old kid is going to turn down the chance to see a football club from the inside. I used to play the records at Kingsmills, though they wouldn't let me do the announcements because my voice hadn't broken. I travelled to away games on the team bus. Two seasons of watching a free-scoring goal machine reach its peak. After that I rejoined my mates, following Caley. Privileged to see a very fine team there, including of course the telepathic partnership of Chic Allan and Dave Johnston. But, to tell the truth, I would watch any game of football. If Clach was the only game in town, Dad and I would be there. In the summer, we would wander around the Bught when the Welfare League games were on. My Dad seemed to knew everyone involved at all levels of Inverness football, so going round the Bught was a social event, as well as a chance for me to see past heroes from the Highland and indeed Scottish Leagues. I left Inverness in 1978, and moved to north London. I used to watch Arsenal, since they were the nearest club to me. Liam Brady on his own was worth the price of admission, but somehow I couldn't get into it. I couldn't connect. This was simply not my team. When the merger happened, of course I was disappointed that the two clubs, with their long histories and rivalry, were disappearing. But you often have to pay a price for progress. At the time, I promised my wife that I would take her to their first game in Europe - a promise that I was delighted to fulfill on a hot July night a couple of years ago. Let's be honest - most of the last 23 years have exceeded anyone's realistic expectations. I don't get to many games. In fact I confess that the last two that I attended were the Cup Final and the Europa League match in Romania. So maybe some of you will write me off as a happy clapper. I don't think I am. There is more chance of me growing another head than NOT supporting Caley Thistle - whatever league they are in. As I said, it's in my blood.

    I am not sure that any new board members need to bring capital with them. What we badly need is at least someone on the board with a depth of footballing knowledge.

    There goalie had just let one in through his legs there is hope after all 1-0 for st mirren

    QoS live on alba Just Now against st mirren I wouldn’t be confident of beating them for sure. They look decent Could we be bottom of the league after these 3 fixtures?
  15. Robertson Out

    You are right Renegade I just hope that with new appointments to the board will start to see a change of direction at the club but it will be a slow process.

    Are you suggesting that he was unaware that his contract had expired and that he hadn't agreed a new one with us?!
  17. Meekings was on over £2 k a week it might be that due to his injuries he was offered less when he turned it down. If we had signed him again he would have to play with one leg as I believe he is injured again!

    Tulloch, Orion or Weldex would all be preferable to what we have just now. At least those guys all have experience of running a business and knowledge of football business in particular.

    Anyone who witnessed the last quarter of the Dumbarton game would be saying exactly what Dougal was implying.

  23. Meekings turned down a deal in November or around then saying he wanted to concentrate on his football or something like that which is typically code for I'm leaving and waiting to see who comes in for me. He then got injured and didn't play any games in the first half of 2017 for ICT. Then, after relegation, instead of offering the guy a deal based on the best we could offer, just in case he might have hung around, we, erm, released him and Meekings found out via Twitter, through an Inverness Courier journalist. This obviously went down like a lead balloon with Meekings who wasn't aware that he was getting released and he subsequently signed for Dundee after training with them for several weeks. Even injured and with one leg he's still better than every single defender we have. Combined.
