  1. New Signing

    That is very true but when John Robertson first secured promotion to the SPL a decade and a half ago, he did so with a squad of players, largely recruited by Steve Paterson, who, even taking into account the effects of inflation, were paid less than the average is likely to be next season. Those were a group of players who were largely journeymen but were a great blend with fantastic team spirit. We have been promoted before on very limited resources and there is no reason why we can’t be again but recruitment and retention of the right players with the right attitude and level of ambition is key.

  3. New Signing

    Unlikely, I would have thought, that a club about to announce that it's going into administration would be signing new players. On that basis, doubly good news. A young lad with potential which is the way we have to go for now. Strongly suspect that this indicates that we will be losing Vigurs, Doran or both.
  4. Announcement

    Painting it at all would be a start.
  5. Announcement

    It seems to me that the individuals with commercial nous, significant capital and an interest in the club are David Sutherland and Alan Savage. Unfortunately and probably largely due to a clash of egos, they were unable or unwilling to work together in the past. Whilst I appreciate it is unlikely to happen, it would be ideal if they could put aside those past differences and work together for the sake of the club that seems important to them both at this time of impending crisis.
  6. Announcement

    There is no doubt whatsoever that, even with the savings that have been made, we are running at a loss that is unsustainable probably in the medium term, let alone the longer term. However, is that the fault of the current board or the previous regime who saw fit to trust JH with a new contract that made him the highest paid manager in our history with, by a margin, the highest player budget and then, after sacking him but still paying him that substantial six figure salary, appointing a completely unproven and inexperienced manager on a five year contract and then failing to take decisive action when it was increasingly obvious he was out of his depth ? The current board and manager have made mistakes but took over amid utter chaos. The ship has been steadied on the pitch,. It would not be surprising, however,m if the deeper financial waters remained much more turbulent.
  7. Announcement

    If there is something significant to say then, for goodness sake, whether it's good or bad, just say it. This speculation simply fuels unrest and unsettles everyone from the dressing room to the stands. If there is nothing of significance to be said them please day that too and quell these rumours. One way or another, this needs to be brought to a head.
  8. Highland Derbies Next Season

    Yip, Robbo is leaving and Craig Brewster is coming back for a third spell !
  9. Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    To be fair, maybe he meant to say a good performance which, by and large, it was. Some people may not be the best with the written word.
  10. Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    As far as points 2 and 3 are concerned, you must be listening to a very different drum beat to the rest of us.
  11. Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    That late late goal was a crushing blow and, although it's still arethmetically possible for us to make the play offs, realistically, we are consigned to another year in the Championship. However, the results and, more particularly, the commitment and performances in the last few weeks, lead me to look forward to next season with much more enthusiasm and confidence than would have been the case a month ago. If we can keep this squad together and start next season as we are finishing this, then Premiership football back in Inverness in season 2019-20 is a very distinct possibility. After today's results, another distinct possibility is the opportunity to beat Ross County four times next season on the way to the Championship title. Hugely disappointed in the points being stolen from us today but immensely proud to be an ICT fan. We may not now be promoted but we have at last reversed years of steady decline.
  12. Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    Biggest game of the season so far. Much more important than the Challenge Cup final. Time to make a noise even in the Main Stand and cheer the team to victory. A scrappy 1-0 will do just fine.

  14. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    Potentially, the best midfielder in the division.
  15. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    I, for one, would be delighted if he accepted. He needs to improve his discipline but, with Vigurs in the team, we are far far better than we are without and it shows at least some ambition on the part of the club despite our constrained financial circumstances.
