  1. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Watch out for the 6 goal backlash now though!
  2. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Glad Oakley has scored, think he might be our man, still only 20 and learning the game!
  3. Baird or Oakley

    Thought they worked well together. Baird was playing wide right, Doran wide left and Oakley as the target man, holding it up and laying it wide. Would be happy if they started with that on Tues. Jake to replace either wide man when they tire.
  4. Nathan Austin

    Legend. Loved Roman on his short stint with us. Oozed class I thought with the odd brainfart that you get with young lads. Apparently told Terry he was going up front when the strikers kept missing chances and was told in no uncertain terms to get back to his position. Gotta love his confidence though.
  5. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    I had been focusing on 4th spot but now the game on Tues becomes massive. Beat them, it gives us a nice cushion from 2nd bottom and gets us looking north again. Lose and we are in battle, especially if they keep up their form. Only one way to sort it. Beat them 6-1
  6. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    Robbo said after the game the front three didn't follow his instructions to play further forward. He said the second half they finally listened and we saw the dividends. Thought defence looked shaky and hesitant in the first half except raven but seemed to grow in confidence in the 2nd. Polly played well overall, Trafford was in and out the game, Chalmers struggled. Thought Baird had his best game yet in the wider position, Oakley held up the ball well against strong centre halfs. Doran was decent but tired in the second half, missed two good cut back chances. Thought Bell has a sharpness that the other forward players lack, he should be starting for me. Jake was a threat in his cameo but frustrating as usual. Going to miss Raven. Need a replacement. St Mirren have a potent attacking side, happy to glide past players and swap positions. We had to attack. Made for a very open, entertaining game yet again in Paisley, but fruitless nonetheless.
  7. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    The competition has provided almost zero interest to me apart from a potential away trip in Ireland or Northern Ireland. Excited for the draw tomorrow, last chance saloon.
  8. NICK ROSS Trialist

    I dont bother with dots. I doubt he would currently break into the first 11 at the moment however it is a squad game. I would say, we are very light in the central midfield position. At the moment we only have Vigurs, Polly and Trafford. Vigurs and Polworth are likely to pick up suspensions and niggles along the season so a strong squad is critical if we want to be successful. I would rather bin Cooper and bring in Ross who can cover both wide and central midfield position, especially now Doran is fit again. Also his flexibility may allow us opportunity to change formation during games. However, this is all dependant on him accepting a squad players wage, which is perhaps unlikely.
  9. Hang on, Yogi was crying in the press saying he wanted a bigger budget to push the club onto the next level. That's why he took the huff and put himself in an impossible position. Really, which level does he expect a club with 2000 hardcore supporters. Well down to Cameron for standing up to his nonsense. Deep down we all knew the success wasn't sustainable, however the rate of the decline was more of a shock. The timing of our success was excellent, it was masterminded at the same time whilst the Edinburgh clubs and Rangers were struggling. To finish 3rd or 4th in the Premiership is much tougher than a few years back.
  10. Livi Away

    Times the meet up?
  11. Stadium Improvements/Enhancing the Crowd

    Regarding the pies. If it is a seasons contract and the club sells to the highest bidder. From the sales of the pies on a match day, does any finance filter back to the club? If not, the quality of pies isn't really a major problem for the club. The bar I presume would be much more worthwhile to focus on to attract extra revenue. Perhaps a free bus from town that arrives at 1.30pm and leaves at 6pm. Gets punters into the bar and spending cash. Even get the youth teams minibus and shuttle run from 1pm onwards.
  12. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    Since he and tremarco have returned into the full back positions their experience has really helped solidify the defence. I have no idea what the financial situation is but unless Seedorf returns a much improved player we will be significantly weakened.

    Crusaders away please
  14. John Hughes and the board who backed him. He stretched our finances unnecessarily, then put himself in an untenable position knowing fine he would require to be paid until further employment was found, forcing us into converting Forans playing contract into a managerial one. Foran wasn't ready but was never going to turn down the offer.
  15. Captain

    People question where things have gone wrong for ICT. Obviously there are many deep rooted problems. This may be a strong statement with no evidence to back it up but I feel Vigurs has a massive negative influence on the team. The team is completely shot of confidence, we need a leader who leads by example by busting a gut, tackling, snarling around as well as encouraging and lifting those around him. What I see if Vigurs barking at refs, his own players and letting others do his job for him. The togetherness has gone, this has disappeared since his arrival at the club. I don't blame it all on him, but perhaps he has had a massive impact on that noticeable shift.
