  1. Game 17 - Brechin City (H) 21 Nov

    HT 0-0 FT 2-0 ICT Bell Opp Sinclair Crowd 1954
  2. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    I disagree. It would actually make it less likely that smaller teams would make the latter stages. Fort William v Celtic doesn't really do it for me. The big sides would simply put out a youth side or fringe players and it would be so artificial. Far better to have little teams playing big teams because they have earned the right by winning through in earlier rounds. They deserve and get a bit of respect and the game becomes a real occasion.
  3. Team for Brechin City game

    Forecast is for heavy rain for most of the day. If the pitch is playable then the conditions will not be conducive to pretty football. It would seem a shame to make changes to the side that has brought current success but we may need to play the stronger swimmers.
  4. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    Interesting draw. Decent draw for us with hopes of an "upset". I'm sure we like the draw more than they do. But Hibs and Hearts meeting, a top flight Lanarkshire derby and Fraserburgh taking on The Rangers certainly catch the eye. Highland League involvement in the 5th round guaranteed with Formartine hosting Cove. Brora also quite capable of taking another league scalp at Methil.
  5. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    He's from Dudley. Carnac Crescent should certainly impress.
  6. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Have it at neutral ground at Grant St Park. Capacity of 3000 should be enough. Put up a big screen at TCS if not. But first, lets not for a moment underestimate Crusaders.
  7. Italy

    Here's the answer.
  8. Ex-ICT players' news

    Marley Watkins made his full international début tonight when he came on as a sub for Wales in a friendly against Panama. Well done Marley!
  9. Michael O`Neill

    Failing to qualify for the World Club does not mean that he is a failure as a manager. He has done a fantastic job for Northern Ireland. They were no-hopers when he arrived and yet he took them to their first ever European finals and they were agonisingly close to qualifying for Russia. Northern Ireland are not exactly blessed with many decent players at the moment but yet he has produced a team that are hard to beat and which has, by N.Ireland standards, been one of the most successful sides ever. His record as Northern Ireland's manager is why the SFA along with big clubs like The Rangers and Sunderland are keen to get his services. When Scotland has such a fantastic record of producing great club managers, it would be a bit of a shame if Scotland appointed a non Scot. However, if O'Neill is to be the man, it will be because he wants to coach a national side rather than a club side and I think he would do a terrific job for Scotland.
  10. Stadium Improvements/Enhancing the Crowd

    I didn't think about it at the time but on reflection I do remember that I could just make out the names of the players coming on and off. It wasn't anything like as clear as the tannoy at Dingwall the previous Wednesday though.
  11. NICK ROSS Trialist

    If he hasn't found anything elsewhere, I think it demonstrates a bit of a gulf between what he (and/or his agent) thinks he's worth and what any potential club would be willing to pay. It was interesting that he played on Wednesday night as a trialist. If he had previously been offered something here and had refused to sign then why would Robbo give him game time instead of one of the youngsters? It suggests to me that he may be interested in signing him but wanted to see Nick in action in a competitive game before deciding whether to offer him anything. On Nick's performance, I wouldn't expect that Robbo will be willing to offer him anything other than a basic contract. If he does, then if Nick want's to get his career back on track, he should have the common sense to accept the offer and take the opportunity to up his game and demonstrate that he's worth more.
  12. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    I was looking at the average attendances that The New Saints and Crusaders get. If the powers that be want to maximise gate receipts then they'll need to give us a home game! We may moan about the level of support we get, but we are by some margin the best supported side left in the competition.
  13. Derby - 8th November

    I thought he offered little yesterday but gave the County defence a pretty torrid time on Wednesday. He strikes me as the sort of player who can make a real impact if the conditions are right. Good player to have on the bench. I'd rather keep Cooper than sign Ross.
  14. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Looks like we are getting the knack of winning ugly when we don't play so well. Key was the desire and hard work of the team. It wasn't the best we've played by a long chalk but nevertheless it was a deserved win.
  15. Derby - 8th November

    Maradona was OK as well.
