  1. I've been coaching local kids for over 10 years. Even at under 12 level you can spot the kids who've got 'it'. There is no shortage of talent in the Inverness area, I can assure you. I've seen kids from all over town who you just know have the ability to go a long way. The majority of those that are picked up by Caley are dropped by the time they get to under 17 level. I've know idea why, as they can't all suddenly be not good enough. In truth though, the majority are never spotted and the relationship between ICT and local Inverness youth football organisations are pretty much non existent.

    We've won 4 games out of 31 this season. We need to win at least the same from the last 7. If I was a betting man I wouldn't be putting a single penny on that. Sorry, but we've had it for this year in my opinion.

    Can't really see us making top 6 now!

    And credit where it's due, Tierney and Armstrong were absolute class tonight.

    That must've felt like a training session for Celtic. We didn't get near them all night. Looked to me that we were terrified of them from the start, I've never seen us stand off a team like we did tonight. And you simply can't give a team like Celtic all the time in the world to play it out from the back. Even without the howlers I suspect the scoreline would've ended up the same at the end. I left after the 4th, I'd seen enough...and it was feckin freezing to add to my misery.

    To be fair, we're not very good.
  7. We have a 3 page thread on here basically saying how **** Boden is. Doumbauya is up there with the worst strikers I've ever seen at our club. Yet Foran starts him every game. The guy can head a ball...with no accuracy, and that's it. And as for Tansey..I forgot the bloke was playing today until about the 80th minute. If Aberdeen, or anyone else want him, take every penny we can. Start with Boden and Arnier against Hamilton.
  8. I actually considered leaving after 10 mins of the second half. Stayed on thinking we surely must improve. We didn't. Really dire stuff. Partick looked better all over the pitch and if we had sneaked a winner it'd been a travesty. Nothing else to add.

    Hugely disappointing performance, especially the first half. We stood do far off them and just let them dictate the game. It was just crying out for someone to put in a crunching tackle and close them down quicker. In saying that, I was impressed with their movement and speed, although we made them look a lot better than they actually are., Much better second half, although I never really felt we might get an equaliser. The two missed headers aside, we created little. And to be fair, if they'd had a bit more composure in front of goal it could've been worse. Oh well, onwards and upwards. On another note, I never realised how big Kranjcar is! And class with it too. The guy breezed through the game and all their movement came through him. Even at whatever age he is now, he's head and shoulders above anyone else I've seen this year.

    Great performance from everyone, Mckay was my MOTM. Could easily have been 5 or 6 to us. Who was the rugby player guy Dundee brought on?? Looked more like a prop forward than a footballer!
  11. I mind being at the 6-0 game. Think both Wyness and Ritchie got hat-tricks?
  12. Maybe we're holding off on the transfer front because we're waiting to see who else Aberdeen want from us. And to think McInnes had the nerve to complain about not being able to compete with Celtic.
  13. The way we're playing at the moment they'd have still beaten us 1-0, with a 95th minute winner scored by an unknown 17yo making his debut.

    Sounds like we're going back to the darkest days of hooliganism in the 80s. Folk used to complain how quiet our fans were. I'd be interested to know how many seats were actually broken. And if some of our fans were so out of order, why weren't there complaints from County? Why didn't the police/stewards take some action? Personally I think it's great that we've now got a loud, vocal, enthusiastic group of younger fans. Fk me, those complaining should try attending something like a Spurs/West Ham game, like I did earlier this season. They'd walk out in disgust after 5 minutes!!
  15. When their keeper was finally taken off, the last thing he did was catch the ball in play. When he was replaced their reserve keeper started play with a goal kick. I'm genuinely curious what the rule involved there is.
