  1. Keeping 11 on the pitch

    Hawkeye mentions "our reputation", and, of course, it is a vicious circle. Once you establish a reputation, then the refs will be looking out for you. A positive feedback loop. The problem has been there all season. Here's what I said on 02 Sep, after the match against Aberdeen U-20s. (Which, from reading the comments, seems to have been similar to Sunday night - a game of two halves against a weak side.) "I see Trafford has been red-carded. Is it me, or is discipline worse this season? There seemed to be a lot of yellow cards in the previous games - even last week at Brechin." Back then, Robbo's main priority was to find a viable team, so maybe discipline wasn't his top priority. But at this stage of the season, with everything to play for, it's essential.
  2. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Did you know that there was also a second half?
  3. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Semi-final - need to lose another man before extra time
  4. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    So what's the biggest lead from which we have lost?
  5. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Not convinced by our defence. An early second half goal by Crusaders would make it very competitive.
  6. Message for Supporters : 14/02/18

    I thought it started out as speculation, and ended up virtually as a call for the replacement of the current board. So I wouldn't have given it as much time as you did
  7. Championship Table

    I think that ictchris and Charles are both right in a way. Players are being paid their market value, but that market is over-inflated. In short, it's a classic bubble. However, despite many predictions over the years, the bubble as a whole shows no sign of bursting. Individual clubs come and go, according to their financial circumstances, and the difference between the richest and the less rich clubs has increased. But the bubble as a whole remains intact, as record transfer fees and wages show.
  8. 25th Anniversary

    Better start saving, then! A quick search gives current prices for Tomatin 25 and 27yo at around £175. But it would be fantastic if there was a small collection of casks in the warehouse, filled and stored all those years ago under the loving care of Big Jock himself
  9. Inverness Courier

    Looks like we've just given them a rumour to investigate
  10. If it's your 18th, have a drink...

    I still have an unopened bottle of the commemorative Tomatin somewhere...
  11. The Biggest Little Railway in the World

    Cheers, Renegade. I'll have a look next time I'm up. I was thinking of how they might route that line into town nowadays. More of a problem now than when it was first proposed! Then it occurred to me that there must be a railway bridge over the canal, that I'd never seen or even been aware of. And it turns out to be a swing bridge. No doubt some of you are very familiar with it, but I was from the other side of town. I'm still learning about my home town :)
  12. The Biggest Little Railway in the World

    I wonder how much of the old Spean Bridge to Fort Augustus line could be re-used. The big problem would be along Loch Ness. There is surely not enough room on either side of the loch. Going up the east side would require a new West Link railway around the town, unless the new route went along Island Bank Road and Castle Street A big wide sweep up the west side and joining up with the north line at Beauly might be possible. But wherever it was, there would be very strong environmental protests. I just can't believe that anyone is seriously considering this. It would surely be cheaper to run fleets of free buses up and down the glen!
  13. The Biggest Little Railway in the World

    OK, it was only last year, and so not very "olde". But anyway... Running a model steam engine on tracks from Fort William to Sneck. Has just finished its run on Channel 4, but it looks as though all five episodes are available online. Good programme for a Sunday night - compulsive viewing, and a fine achievement. I see that it was done in a fortnight last June. Was anyone here involved?
  14. Inverness CT -V- Dundee Utd ***GAME OFF

    I don't have any records, but I have the feeling that that we often get off to a bad start after a break - whether due to weather, internationals, half-time or the summer!
  15. 25th Anniversary

    Winning some silverware would be very appropriate.
