  1. I seem to recall reading that as well. Great news as he is an absolutely dreadful official.
  2. Fans Player of the Year Vote

    It was a bit of a minter of a "lap" of the stadium really. Don't blame the players for being bummed out given how things had gone in the game but completely agree that it was a shame so many fans just bailed and left. No wonder they seemed totally unenthused by the whole thing.
  3. Fans Player of the Year Vote

    I don't understand why the club couldn't even have run a poll on the website for this?
  4. Highland Derbies Next Season

    We've got a lot more on our plate to focus on rather than what that mob over the bridge are doing. Lots of rumours circulating about the financial state of ICT.
  5. Heartbroken, tears, heads gone etc. There was only one team winning that yet for some reason we completely took our foot off the gas and started time wasting and we gradually became more and more panicky when we had the ball. Instead of taking the ball down and finding a team mate we started hurriedly clearing balls high in the air showing no composure whatsoever in the final ten minutes or so. Poor defending for the opener. Seedorf was being roasted down the right to start with so it was no surprise that the goal originated from there. Can't really remember it actually with everything else that happened during the game but I don't think Ridgers had much of a chance. Nice equaliser from Chalmers with a free kick. His set pieces were abysmal today but the one that did come off saw us bag a goal. Second half we should have been out of sight. Lovely equaliser from Austin and, as mentioned above, we seemed to lose our way a bit after he went off. Whilst Oakley still caused a few problems for the Pars centre backs Mackay wasn't as good as Austin was at getting the ball down and running at them. Our best chance to kill the game came when Doran worked the ball from the left to Mackay but he curled a shot just wide of the post. As renegade mentions I think we made the wrong subs today. Whilst Austin might have had to come off due to injury I think Mackay was the wrong choice (easy to say with hindsight of course) and Doran was playing really well when he went off which also saw us regress a fair bit. Calder just didn't really carry the ball away from danger when he took his place on the left flank. I'm not his biggest fan but with his pace Mulraney would have been a real asset with all the space Dunfermline were leaving behind their back line. Again, hindsight is a wonderful thing. In the end with Dunfermline throwing the proverbial kitchen sink at us we finally buckled. Couldn't see what happened but it looked like we failed to deal with a high ball pumped into the box and it was scrambled home from close range. Absolutely gutting but in a bizarre way I'm almost relieved as I couldn't take another two games like today in the next week. Hopefully we can keep a good chunk of this squad and have a good go next season but with rumours abound that the vultures are circling over some key players who are out of contract in the next few weeks I'm not too sure that we will keep said important players.
  6. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    Highland News is allegedly running a story which says that we might lose Bell, Vigurs and Doran. I haven't seen it so hopefully someone can provide some context to this. Losing any of those players would be pretty disappointing let alone all three.
  7. Dunfermline game - Free entry?

    I know that this issue has been raised with the club. Similar situation with me, I bought tickets for a Hibs game when ICT didn't have a game on and ever since then I get emails asking me to come along to Easter Road again. I've probably had more emails from Hibs than ICT over the last couple of years.
  8. Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    If we do make the playoffs the players will be blowing out their backsides
  9. Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    Bit harsh to ask us and Dumbarton to play two games in one day.
  10. Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    Rearranged for tomorrow night.
  11. Dunfermline game - Free entry?

    Agree with most of that especially the Easyjet ticket idea something I've mentioned on here before:
  12. 5th Place

    Agree with bdu98196. I'd prefer a straight two up, two down approach or at least keep the playoffs in the same style as those between Championship/League 1 and League 1/League 2.
  13. 5th Place

    As @bdu98196 points out whilst the Chapmionship teams play more play off games the Premiership sides play more league games. There is a small difference in the total number of games for the sides finishing 3rd or 4th in the Championship compared to 11th in the Premiership but it's not so much that the setup heavily favours the top tier side.
  14. 5th Place

    The SPL hasn't existed for about 5 years now and the playoffs aren't "heavily weighted" in favour of the top tier side. Over the course of the season including playoffs the sides that finish 3rd or 4th in the Championship will only play two more games than the side that finishes 11th in the Premiership.
  15. Liam Polworth is 23 years old and has already played something like 3 or 4 times the number of games that Munro had played at the same age and at a higher level as well.
  16. 5th Place

    If we somehow make it to the playoffs I can't imagine the Inverness public suddenly rallying behind their team sadly.
  17. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    Ah i didn't realise that. I thought he was out of contract at the end of this season.
  18. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    I'd far rather keep Doran than Mulraney if that's what it comes to. Despite his wee purple patch a few months back Mulraney has been pretty poor again this season.
  19. Five goals! I should not make it to games more often...
  20. Dundee reject £1.8M bid for Caulker

    Probably worth remembering that this Caulker story was completely made up much like Morelos to "unnamed Chinese club".
  21. 12 week minimum ban for standing

    Pretty pleased I can still do a quick line at the stadium. Sitting down of course. Disclaimer:
  22. Dundee reject £1.8M bid for Caulker

    If only we had a manager who didn't whore out players like Christie on the cheap for some inexplicable reason. Oh wait...
