  1. Inverness CT -V- QOS

    Coming to this late as I was in Inverness without advanced IT equipment. Definitely one of the worst games I've ever seen. QoS were surprisingly poor too but they had the consolation of a few decent attempts and some decent form earier in the season. No punch up front and still some worrying defending, saved by OFW. I thought our yellows were deserved and there could have been more for some of the daft tackles. I liked the comedically awful QoS free-kick too, but don't forget the ICT (forget who it was) fresh-air shot at the edge of the box in the second half at a time when we had a wee bit of pressure. It's early days and I'm not a Mad Manager Sacker but the team and club need to take action before too long. Can't see Brechin getting off the bottom but Falkirk are getting back on track and we need to do the same.
  2. Robertson Out

    Owen Coyle is a high-risk appointment, with an unimpressive recent managerial record, just like most of the prospective bosses we could attract. He's just more expensive.
  3. Travelling to Falkirk away Oct 14

    Or get cheap advance tickets First Class to Falkirk Grahamston on the Highland Chieftain both ways. That's what I'd do.
  4. Why do you support ICT ?

    Married an Invernessian from a Caley family and started going to away games, mainly, after the merger as the club were now playing regularly in the Lowlands. And all downhill from there. Every summer I hope for a Kirkie Rob Roy v ICT pre-season friendly, so that I can wear two scarves in July and expire from heat exhaustion.
  5. Dumbarton -V- Inverness CT

    Well, it's a terrific goal, at least. I tried to be positive after the St Mirren result but it's harder this time. Dumbarton are never going to get out of this division northwards, but they have built a reputation for scrapping and gathering enough points to avoid relegation. Might be worth learning from them...
  6. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    Sadly we'll be in Inverness anyway on the 30th and are committed to being at the QoS game. Kirkie Rob Roy currently in 2nd place in the West Central Juniors, too...
  7. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    Anything really surprising? St Mirren are emerging as a decent side with lots of home-grown youngsters (now there's an idea!) making an impact. Did anyone expect a result there? In retrospect, scoring twice must be a pretty hopeful sign, and it's obvious to everyone that the defence is a problem to solve so let's assume Robbo and team are onto it. St Mirren have taken a couple of seasons to regroup after relegation. We might need something similar. Not ideal, but if it's a way back, it's a way back. And would you really fancy seeing Celtic or Aberdeen launching attacks at that defence next season?
  8. Board statement 14/08/17

    My concern would be - is this £500k a 'soft loan' of the kind (albeit much smaller than) those with which the new Rangers club are papering over their cracks? Hope not. What kind of 'investment' is it then?
  9. Club Shop - Academy Street?

    Remember posting here yonks ago about how in most tourist cities you can buy jerseys of the local team in tourist shops. Why not ICT jerseys in the tartan tat shops? Something genuinely Scaddish and Invernessian to take back to Littleville, Wyoming? While some of the suggestions above may or may not be practical or feasible, at least it shows the fans are thinking and trying to be innovative in terms of ideas. Is the club?
  10. Scotland v England

    Brown should probably have been sent off, but even before his booking, England's Walker (I think it was - don't follow English football) did a right nasty one on Morrison, causing the injury that took him off, and wasn't even booked. The two minutes between Griffiths' goal and Kane's sneaky equaliser are the best I've felt at Hampden since you-know-what.
  11. Alex Fisher

    Something in the P&J today about him being out with a toe injury rather than being frozen out. Is this mince?
  12. Richie Foran Has Left The Building

    Not an outcome any of us wanted or can be happy about, yet the right one all the same. I'm surprised, though - I thought he was staying put. Worried now about the replacement. Will the board dither about that as they did while we were slowly and agonisingly getting relegated?
  13. Poll - Hamilton or Dundee Utd?

    Quite a bit of Dunbartonshire, including my bit, is.
  14. How times have changed!

    Aye, really enjoyed the semi-final, even though beating Celtic was getting a bit passé by then (things have changed now, though). Was dreading it if we'd made the play-offs and ended up paired with Falkirk. Coulda been payback time. In the end payback wasn't needed, and they didn't make it anyway.
  15. Poll - Hamilton or Dundee Utd?

    Accies, from the point of view of it being a shorter away trip for those of us based in the west. Mind you, I watched that doc on BBC TalkFunny the other night about United's UEFA Cup run in 1987, beating Borussia Munchengladbach and Barcelona on their way to the final. Remember watching the Barcelona away leg live on telly. What a come-down for them to be trying to overcome Accies to get promotion.
