  1. Absolutely. A fresh start with all the players both existing and new given a fair chance and full support.
  2. Rory would be an interesting signing and a good foil for John Baird up front. However, he has turned down full time deals before in favour of combining his trade as a plumber with a healthy supplement as one of the country's highest paid part timers. Not convinced that, at the age of thirty, he would choose to go full time now.
  3. A local boy with the club in his heart who would be very effective at Championship level and who could also do a job in the Premiership if we got promoted. If he is willing to return on reasonable terms he should be welcomed with open arms.
  4. Any idea who and what position he plays ?
  5. I certainly think that Shane would pose a goal threat in the Championship.
  6. I am of similar generation. Hamish French too. There may be some merit in looking on our doorstep but one major issue is that the standard of the Highland League is far far below what it was thirty or forty years ago.
  7. You disgraceful 'alarmist' you. Commenting on bad press just because it appears to be true
  8. If true. It is a very poor show indeed. The trouble is that the statement now issued attempts to put things right but does not refute the initial allegation. If it's not true the club need to deny it. If it is true then, as well as thanking Shearer for his work they need to be apologising for how his time at the club was brought to an end.
  9. An apparent wrong corrected again much like the season ticket fiasco. It would be far preferable to deal with things properly in the first instance.
  10. There are indeed two sides to every story but in this case it's pretty simple. Either he was dismissed by email or he wasn't. If this allegation, which causing further damage to the reputation and image of our club and those now charged with running and being the public face of false then it is important that a correction and clarification is issued without delay. If there is silence, and we've been far too good at silence recently, only one inference will be drawn from that.
  11. I agree entirely. If true it is a disgrace on those responsible. I am not the biggest fan of Duncan Shearer after the way he conducted himself during his and Pele's move to Pittodrie. However, no reasonable employer should ever treat any employee in such a manner. Nobody deserves to learn that they've lost their job my email. No doubt other fine backroom staff will go as a result of our reduced financial circumstances and I sincerely hope that they are treated with more respect and common decency than DS seems to have been. I am proud to support my home town team but I am ashamed of the way we have been conducting ourselves lately. There was a welcome apology after the appalling initial statement on season tickets but, if this is true, then no genuine lesson has been learned. There is an announcement before every home game that we are a family club and I hope that we are. High time that those now at the head of the ICT family started treating the family members, particularly those losing their livelihood through no fault of their own with some humility and humanity.
  12. To be fair to him, he would have at least trebled his income. Nice to see a little bit of loyalty in football for a change.
  13. I disagree. Nick Ross is one of our own, didn't always get a fair crack of the whip when it came to a run in the first team and is capable of doing a very good job indeed at Championship level.
  14. Have moved this thread to U.K. Football as it's more speculation than rumour.
  15. This will not improve things for the vast majority of clubs. What would improve Scottish football is the replacement of Neil Doncaster with a chief executive who is interested in the welfare of all clubs not just the toxic two.
