  1. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    It used to happen until about fifty years ago but produced too many mis matches. The SFA don't often get things right but I rather like the way the competition has been organised in recent seasons. The Highland and Lowland League sides together with the best of the Juniors all get to play in the tournament proper and those that survive until the fourth round to face the prospects of being drawn against the top teams have got there on merit.
  2. Team for Brechin City game

    Pity but at least we have five hours notice. Welcome post from the club.
  3. Game 17 - Brechin City (H) 21 Nov POSTPONED

    HT: ICT 2, Brechin 0 FT: ICT 3, Brechin 0 ICT: Polworth Brechin:Layne Crowd; 1,828
  4. Team for Brechin City game

    A big game on Saturday as far as any ambitions for a play off place are concerned but we need to concentrate on tonight first. No room at all for complacency and three points against Brechin will, come the end of the season, count for just as much as three points against St Mirren.
  5. Board statement 14/08/17

    I know that we have long been naive in transfer dealings but surely we would not have been so daft as to let Hughes anywhere near the detailed terms of the transfer.
  6. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    You should take in some local sights. Bath is famous for it's Royal Crescent. In Inverness we have Carnac Crescent.
  7. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    Weeks ago. Today is the draw for the fourth round.
  8. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    I wouldn't be unhappy with The Rangers either at home or away. It would almost certainly be selected for live TV which, taken with the gate money, would give us a six figure boost to the coffers which might help us recruit a striker and possibly a replacement for David Raven in January and, unlike a draw against Celtic, which might generate similar revenue, would still give us an opportunity to progress in the tournament.
  9. Word Association

    As nobody has yet started a word association thread on this site I thought that I might as well. Piano.
  10. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Knowing the priorities of the Scottish football authorities, it will be played on whatever date and whatever time the SPFL think will generate most income for them without much thought being given to the convenience of fans.
  11. Scottish Cup

    A good day for the Highland League with Brora, Cove and Formartine all beating SPFL opposition and Fraserburgh winning away to Spartans. A decent show too by Buckie who twice led our opponents for Tuesday before finally going down 2-3. Hopefully, that will have tired them out on a heavy pitch.
  12. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Speak for yourself, many of us knew and predicted that this would be a tough division that our newly assembled squad would take time to come to grips with. There is not a huge difference in ability between the bottom half dozen in the Premiership and the top half dozen in this league. If things were organised for the benefit of fans and sporting merit we would have a sensible top league of 18 with each team playing each other once home and away. All that drives and maintains the current arrangement is greed and self interest.
  13. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Unless you happen to be one of the ugly sisters.
  14. Big Man / Wee man versus Wee Man / Wee Man

    People from Merkinch and the Ferry are just people and Invernessian people at that.
  15. Italy

    Just how narrow minded are you capable of being ? The success of countries like Iceland and the fact that the tournament is no longer monopolised by Europe and two or three South American countries is a breath of fresh air. It is the World Cup after all.
  16. Our toughest challenge to date but we have the advantage of being at home. No reason why we can't progress further in this competition especially if a fair number take advantage of the free entry to give the young lads some vocal backing.
  17. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    I sincerely hope that the manager and the team don't share your complancy. We are in no position to take anything for granted. Crusaders are in the semi finals on merit.
  18. 7 Clean Sheet Record : £7 Shirt Discount

    Interesting promotion. With any luck we will be giving them away for a fiver by the end of the season.
  19. ICTFC Gain SFA Progressive Performance Award

    Aye, but even he can't afford to move Dingwall to the Central Belt which seems to be the SFA's principal criterion.
  20. ICTFC Gain SFA Progressive Performance Award

    Given that the capital is Edinburgh, Glasgow is in the provinces although given how Weegiecentric the SFA are you'd never know it.
  21. Jake Mulraney

    He is very obviously a confidence player and that goal will do wonders for his confidence which can only be good for ICT.
  22. Michael O`Neill

    I would much rather have a competent and successful manager of the national team than a Scottish one.
  23. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Hopefully, Robbo will be watching and taking notice
  24. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Pleased with that draw. Maybe not a major competition but we are now in the semi finals with a chance of winning silverware and the novelty of welcoming brand new opponents to the Longman. Price this reasonably and surely even the apathetic Inverness public should be atttracted along. Anything under three thousand would be a disappointment. We need to start marketing this widely.
  25. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Would long sleeves cover up deliberately inflammatory posts just as well ?
