  1. There is a significant amount going on behind the scenes with areas such as the UHI’s plans and linking into the IDYFA network. This is being led by Danny and started before his appointment as COO and is looking to progress within the challenges of Project Brave. One of the main sponsors has also offered logistical assistance in getting local teams involved in match days and means to progress this are also happening.
  2. Writing on the wall for Kellacher?

    It's part of the conspiracy by the backward Teucter clique
  3. Inverness CT -V- Peterhead

    Scored one, made one and protected Raven well all game counts as a shocker? One of our better players along with defense and Bell. The rest (OFW apart).........
  4. Inverness CT -V- QOS

    The performance was what it needs to be at this point and not what we want it to be. After being easy to score against since the last year we need to become harder to break down. All three centre midfielders were deployed more conservatively than in previous games and in general we looked more solid. From this basic we will need to progress however it is worrying if we have to depend on Oakley and Baird. I don't think we have had a weaker front line in any previous season.
  5. Robertson Out

    Rumour is that Robertson is refusing to take on board advice from both Chipper and other coaches
  6. The centre of our midfield is not our problem. 1. We have nothing up front. Baird is as poor a striker as we have ever had. Oakley is not close to being at this level at the moment, needs to lose weight to improve mobility and work on touch and movement. The lack of anything up front is stifling the midfield 2. Rule 1 of avoiding relegation - don't lose goals! The same defensive shape issues from last season still exist. We watch the ball and don't match runs. If the only thing we do for the next three games is sort out defense and draw 0-0 then this will put in place what we should have sorted this time last season Connor Bell did fine considering his age, etc today. Apparently Cooper was playing for us. Missed that (did anyone actually see him on the pitch). Our bench gives nothing option wise. Hopefully we will get more players back from injury soon
  7. Tactics Thread

    Frankly I'm a bit baffled at the ongoing abuse and rantings after one bad game. The reviews against Dundee Utd suggested that we competed well and were unlucky from my recollection. We have a team which has not played together (only regular two players from last season started the game) and is hampered by some of the most experienced players being injured (e.g. Warren and Tremarco). A number of the new players need to prove themselves as being up to the standard however I'm sure their confidence will grow when they are read the forum (as most do) and see that they are being told they are rank and to 'feck off' as one poster seems to use as a tag line to every post. In fact we seem to have grown a few newbies who have even registered just to show their unconstructive 'support'. The reality is that the state of the club has meant that rebuilding will take more than one transfer window. We don't have funds to buy and therefore have to take risks on players who are raw or possibly need a fresh chance. This may find a few gems but will also find a few who will not make the grade. It will take a number of games to make an initial assessment of where we are but I am under no illusions of being able to compete at the top of the league. Happy clapping is not being asked for however a degree of common sense around the team needs to be applied with hopefully some of the injured players returning soon to provide some leadership. Wringing our hands at every opportunity and personal abuse of players and management (both playing side and non-playing side) is unlikely to improve anything.
  8. Don't see how he could be faulted for any of the goals. The first was a 50:50 call as to 'sweep' or stay.
  9. I keep reading about demanding the current board resign. What is the plan then? Unless there is a credible replacement ready then how does this improve things? Don't get me wrong. There is little so far from the board which gives confidence about their ability to progress a strategy to move forward, however unless a better and clear Plan B exists it is simply a fact that we will have to give time for the current board to progress forwards and the reality is that the current team is not capable of challenging for the title this year (and unless new investment comes in this may sadly be the case for some time to come). It is easy to demand new investment but this needs a willing investor. Otherwise a bottom up rebuilding needs to be implemented and this will take time.

    And replace it with???
  11. Transfer in and outs

    Almost certainly the reason that they asked Draper to request the move relates to contractual position around the transfer fee or other aspects of amounts due. In circumstance when players request a move they normally forfeit rights to various fees or %s for sell ons, etc. It seems pretty clear that Draper wanted the move. The rest is business and bluntly in our current circumstances we need to look after ourselves and players who want to stay with us. As IHE noted on another thread, we seem at the moment happy to slag off our current players but laud those who have moved on for whatever reason.
  12. Club Shop - Academy Street?

    Do we actually have enough demand for a shop in town? In the past we have had stock in the Eastgate Centre in Debenhams, Zoo and a stall unit. On no occasion did I ever actually see anyone buying anything. Hard to see how sales will be sufficient to justify this.
  13. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Yesterday's team had 4 players who started last year. It will take time to gel as a unit and some of the comments are a bit OTT. We do look lacking in cutting edge up front though. Not helped by the fact that all 3 of our wingers are currently out injured.
  14. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    New keeper same story.....
  15. New Chairman - Willie Finlayson

    Dave King was only registered as a Director on passing test. Would explain resignation pending passing test......or could be an alternative baffling reason to match much of what has happened recently
