  1. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    I have to disagree. It was no coincidence that our defensive form improved radically when we started to play Raven regularly and equally no coincidence that it's dipped rather alarmingly after he left.
  2. Highland Derbies Next Season

    We simply can't afford to have yet another former manager tending his roses at the club's expense.
  3. Can we have less hype in future

    Can we be permitted just a little rugby related hype now ?
  4. Highland Derbies Next Season

    We can't go on chopping and changing managers. Quite apart from anything else, we can't afford to. John Robertson has made mistakes but there have been promising signs and next year he will have the full close season to repair and will not be faced with nearly such a comprehensive and daunting task of rebuilding. He needs to be given next season at the very least.
  5. A Below Average Championship Club

    USH is no longer a requirement. The pitch freezing is seldom an issue partly due to our firthside location but flooding increasingly is and there's little doubt that the undersoil heating contributes to that and also limits what can be done to remedy it. If it's financially viable, I would be inclined to take out the undersoil heating in the close season.
  6. Highland Derbies Next Season

    I thought it was County who swindled home attendance figures...
  7. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    That was far from the worst we have played this season but we remain largely toothless. Boy do I wish I had stayed at home and watched the rugby on TV ! The promotion play offs are beyond us this season now but we remain at risk of the relegation play off place and I would happily trade victory over Dumbarton in the Irn Bru final for beating them in the two remaining league fixtures we have against them. The frustrating thing is that, on our day, we can match any side in the division including St Mirren. The trouble is we have problems with consistency, commitment and, worst of all, discipline that the the teams in the top half of the division don't have to nearly the same extent. We need to give Daniel McKay a run of starts to see what he is capable of. There is much to be said for the old axiom that if you're good enough and old enough and experience of playing regularly in this league will stand him in better sted for next season.

  9. Pitch Inspection v Morton *GAME ON*

    Thank goodness. Couldn't bear another weekend without some league action.
  10. Crowd v Crusaders

    Not if Scottish viewers were sufficiently well organised and cancelled their subscriptions to SKY and BT Sports en masse. That would double the amount that the TV companies pay for our game. TV money has become a necessary evil in the game but Scottish football, largely to poor leadership of both the League and the SFA, continues to sell itself short.
  11. Light At The End of The Tunnel ?

    Oh dear. At least you are well balanced by the weighty chips on both shoulders.
  12. Wikipedia page

    Whatever the fee was within the range quoted, it was inadequate for the best player we have ever produced. Clubs like Dundee United or even Hamilton have negotiated far better deals in similar situations.
  13. Live ghost hunt from Tulloch castle Hotel

    You did right posting this in General Nonsense.
  14. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Whether we would want him or not, we almost certainly couldn't afford to take Billy McKay on loan at the moment.
  15. Tax regime and computers

    We do. The difficulty that Laurence forsees does not exist.
