  1. Can we have less hype in future

    You forgot Euro2017 for the women.
  2. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    Similar thoughts myself with train tickets already bought for QoS game. If Whitehill get a draw at Nairn next week I could be persuaded to stay local for the replay and see some Scottish Cup passion. Mind you Nairn are obviously keeping all the passion back for next week as they lost 8-0 to Cove Was the goalie at fault for any this week?
  3. Unhealthy diets/poor fitness levels

    Could be both, if they pulled his teeth out and put in some seats.
  4. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    I do think Ryan would do a better job but only marginally. I've been a great Ryan fan but he got a couple of chances last season and you could see he wasn't so agile. Ridgers' confidence must be absolutely shot, especially since the defence obviously have no faith in him never mind what the fans think.
  5. Aberdeen U20 -V- Inverness CT

    Got a few years to go yet. Cheeky young whippersnapper. Away and let off some flares.
  6. Aberdeen U20 -V- Inverness CT

    Elsdon showing his class there... were they charging anything for admission?
  7. Glebe Park

    He took a bite out of the hedge as well.
  8. Brechin City -V- Inverness CT

    Rather enjoyed that.
  9. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    A phrase not often used.
  10. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    Depends on the brand.
  11. IRN BRU Cup (Challenge Cup)

    Livi had a good trip last season to Crusaders, even if only a handful of them made it. I was rather hoping for Bray Wanderers away. Seeing as we're unlikely to get another Bucharest trip any time soon.
  12. Gregg Allman

    Just been reading about Gregg in MOJO.
  13. Ex-ICT players' news

    Spoke to a couple of the Spartans board at the game. They won't be overjoyed at the news. Quite happy to be knocked out as they're putting all their energies into winning the LL this season. Even left out Ross Allum last night, probably their top striker.
  14. Ex-ICT players' news

    Dachi Khutsishvili, former ICT U20, appeared for Spartans FC last night v Albion Rovers in the Challenge Cup.
  15. Transfer in and outs

    I think my memory had erased Dani Lopez from history. I kept thinking he played in 2009 till I realised that was Dani Sanchez.
  16. Player of the Year - Dunfermline

    I don't feel I can vote in this. Maybe 1 point to Vigurs, another to Baird for running about, and -5 to the rest.
  17. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    Unacceptable yes, but hardly any different from last season where we just scraped into the last 16 of the Betfred. Lost the opening league games to Partick and County with a league cup defeat at Alloa sandwiched between them, then a 5-1 hammering at Tynecastle before finally winning a league match on the 27th. So to keep the pattern going we should be losing this Saturday before winning at Brechin on the 26th
  18. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    At the 3rd goal, Chalmers actually won the ball about 30 yards out, but then failed to gather it, one of the most bizarre errors by a defender I have ever seen.
  19. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    I feel sorry for some of you going into work on Monday. I went from the game straight to a family party and at least 15 times people came up to me and mentioned the result, and I live south of Edinburgh. Most of these signings, without naming names, are unfit to wear the ICT shirt. Vigurs was decent but his head went down at 4-1 and I wasn't sure whether Robbo subbed him for this or whether he took a knock. We gave away a gift goal right from the start and it never got any better. Mostly long ball all day - Dunfermline are decent but probably no better than playoff contenders, yet they swatted us aside without any bother while playing some decent passing football on the deck. One of the most embarrassing days ever as an ICT supporter.
  20. Pars Away

    According to chat on P&B, the Elizabethan is not really the place to meet these days. There are two bars in the main stand, Legends (where I've been before, not sure if they sell draught beer) and something else.
  21. Worst summer in the clubs history

    We talking about Draper?
  22. Player Sponsorship 2017/18

    Paid X2 this morning Scotty.
  23. Player Sponsorship 2017/18

    I'm back now but the invoices seem to have expired.
  24. The Ian Vigurs enigma

    A few shouts coming from the shelter opposite the stand, can't understand some people.
  25. I heard the last time he was at a party, it was 50 years ago in a student flat in Edinburgh and he's never recovered from the swirly.
