  1. Relegation

    And how is that going?! Minuscule? Apart from Utd, I’d be interested to know which teams have a bigger budget than us. We certainly shouldn’t be bottom of a league table of the 8 full time teams, especially having the advantage of a squad containing a few players of Premier league standard. Yes, Robbo had a difficult job to do, but he’s done it badly.
  2. Relegation

    Twice we’ve brought back a previously successful manager and both times it turned out badly.
  3. Dundee Utd -V- Inverness CT

    Best performance since Dens?
  4. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    When Robbo was brought in, he had a difficult job to do, but he has not done it at all well.
  5. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    There was a time not so long ago when I’d be disappointed, gutted, at a result like this. But now it is sooo expected, it just bounces off. A very sad state of affairs for both me and ICT.
  6. Highland Derbies Next Season

    County have 21 points from 29 games. At the same stage last year, with a rookie manager way out of his depth and a terrible injury list, we had 24!
  7. Caley Jags Together - Update

    I strongly suspect, Charles, that the 10% voting right granted to the Society is non- transferable to any other entity.
  8. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    I suspect the “emergency” refers to our need to reduce the wage bill.
  9. Highland Derbies Next Season

    Hmm, I’m not convinced about that. Difficult circumstances this season, yes, but I still think there’s a lack of evidence that he’s doing a good job and is the man to take us forward.
  10. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    Being out of the league means we can concentrate on the Irn Bru Cup!
  11. Tax regime and computers

    The valid issue that Laurence raises is that the very wealthy can effectively choose whether to be a Scottish or UK taxpayers. Guess which one they’ll opt for! Through my work I know of a couple who have made some perfectly legit modifications to their arrangements to be English taxpayers. So in rough terms, instead of Scotland’s public finances getting 45% of £1m, we get 46% of nothing. It takes an awful lot of peoples’ extra 1% tax to make up for that loss. Same happens everywhere, like when France hiked its top rates of tax a few years ago, countries like the UK and Belgium benefitted. I sometimes think the world needs a single government and a single tax regime to prevent this sort of thing and all the abuse by large multinationals. But it won’t happen, as nationalists will always insist that each state must be free to do their own thing.
  12. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Really?! Any like for like comparisons I’ve seen show Glasgow to have almost double the population of Belfast.

    Oerth In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, Oerth is the fictional planet on which one of the earliest campaign settings, the World of Greyhawk, is located. Oerth has an axial tilt of 30 degrees, which would cause greater seasonal temperature variation than on Earth, were it not for wizardly and divine magic that shifts weather patterns to be more favorable to the populace.
  14. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    So have we reached the final of this tournament on each of the last 3 times we have been eligible to take part in it?
  15. IrnBru semi-final Preview

    Surely Perth?
  16. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Poloworth’s best performance for a couple of seasons. Hopefully he’s got his mojo back and can play like that for the rest of the season.
  17. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Phew - Highly entertaining game!
  18. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Nice play by Polworth to set up Oakley, 1-0!
  19. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    I was the same, but as kick-off approaches, I’m actually getting quite excited!
  20. IrnBru semi-final Preview

    Nah, the Dundee one. Great first half performance...
  21. IrnBru semi-final Preview

    Ah yes, I somehow missed out one of the 3 challenge cup finals.
  22. IrnBru semi-final Preview

    Dumbarton’s first final since 1912, compared to our 4 in our first 24 years.
  23. Message for Supporters : 14/02/18

    That’s not the scenario RIG was dismissing, those loans were nothing like your proposed clause stating that if the new club ever loans the player out it can only be to us.
