  1. Highland Derbies Next Season

    I agree we shouldn't be "concerned", as in "worried". But it could well be worth understanding how they keep afloat, because we might be able to learn something from them!
  2. I'd agree with that. There are a few Highland League programmes on eBay with starting prices of about 75p. Picking up on the point about putting them on display - did anyone ever take over from Ian Broadfoot as club historian? When I was clearing out the family home years ago, I found some old photos of Thistle, including one which claimed to be from the 1890s, and - we worked out - would be the oldest known photograph of Thistle. I left them at the stadium for Ian - foolishly without making copies - and shortly after than he told me he was leaving because he had just moved to Perth. So I have no idea what happened to these photos. Long since discarded, I expect.
  3. Light At The End of The Tunnel ?

    Hate to break it to you, CB, but Tannochbrae isn't real. Scotland is. That's relevant.
  4. David Raven

    Great servant to the club he may have been, but it can't be right that he gets to take supporters' children when he leaves???
  5. Brora Rangers 16 Fort William 0

    No, I'm not joking. How bad can Fort William be? I saw Thistle get into double figures once or twice in the late 60s, when they were coming to their peak. I think I remember 11 against Huntly. Can't remember who the others were (though Brora might have been candidates back then.) But 16? When did a Highland League team last score 16?
  6. 17 October 1953, Telford Street Park

    If anyone collects old programmes, there is one from this match on eBay just now. Ends Monday 27th at 22:28 GMT. Currently (Sunday 26th, 19:08) at £11.55. Two people have bid so far. There's only a photograph of the front, but it looks to be in good condition - much better than mine.
  7. Inverness CT -V- St Mirren

    Concede goal early after restart, keep trying, but pick up a red card towards the end of the game. Deja vu all over again.
  8. Inverness CT -V- St Mirren

    Looks like time has just told
  9. CLUB STATEMENT : AGM & Annual Report : 23/11/17

    I'm not a shareholder, so all I have seen is the online statement, but that looks to me to be an open and honest summary of the inherited and current situations, and the aspirations for the future. Well worth reading. Communication doesn't win matches, but it surely wins hearts and minds. Interesting: "The company has reported a loss of £422K for the year ended 31 May 2017. It is the inevitable consequence of relegation. The club had budgeted to finish 7th..." So, with a brand new, untried manager, the previous regime had expected to match Yogi's last season, and finish 7th. Optimistic - though of course that's with the benefit of hindsight. All in the past now, though. We seem to be in sensible hands.
  10. St Mirren match

    Presumably covers are not cost-effective?
  11. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    ... who won 7-1 today

    Where were you when I posted this on May 27th? "Played in the school basketball team alongside our very own IHE... "

    Can they score goals? Should be good at headers...
  14. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Looked easy from behind him - looked much more difficult from behind the goal. Good goal!
  15. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Proof of multiple overlapping universes, surely?
