  1. Hospice shares

    Now some good news at last. With Alan Savage, Dougie and Ian McGillivray buying a large chunk of shares it looks like we could be about to turn the corner. Dougie was one of the instrumental people during the formation of our club and is a football man through and through. Throughout the years that Dougie has been in exile Ian has kept up the family link with the club, regularly attending our games. Alan Savage is also a well known football fan, his only fault apparently is that he is a Man U fan! I am sure that these men have not just purchased shares to lock them in their bed side cabinets. Really looking forward to these gents influencing the future of ICT.
  2. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    Our club is in free fall and embarrassing , I am bricking it at the thought of going into work on Monday as I can imagine the abuse I am going to get. Shame on you ICT, professional players indeed.
  3. Season Ticket Holder Offer

    I didn't get this email and they have my email address.

    Common sense would surely dictate that the holiday was delayed until the football management team was firmly in place. In my opinion this shows once again a total disregard, and indeed lack of savvy, about football and how the off season works. No surprise though as this guy has been part of the establishment for some time now.
  5. Season Ticket Prices

    I too am horrified at the lack of consideration by the Board in setting these prices. What a cheek they have asking for Premier League season ticket prices to watch a lower league product. This is nothing to do with fans loyalty and lots to do with the Board's total disregard for the paying public. They fail completely to understand that fans do not have a endless supply of funds to allocate to their Saturday fix. I have now decided to give up one of my two tickets which I have held since the stadium opened, and was effectively a donation. No manager, no team, no football presence on the Board and a crass statement accompanying the price sheet does not equate to a rush to buy tickets.
  6. Fan injection of money

    As Mantis suggest the shares thing has been done before. I know quite a few people who purchased £1000 worth of shares, as I did, in fact I bought the same for my wife and kids. That was in the early days when we were full of pride in our new club and got carried along on a wave of optimism. Move forward 20+ years and we have achieved more than I could ever have imagined but now is not the right time to ask fans to donate large sums. Season tickets, that's the way forward at the moment in my opinion. Get out early and buy a couple of tickets and take a friend along each week. In that way you contribute much needed early season cash and perhaps encourage others to follow the club in years to come.

    There isn't any money forthcoming that we know of for certain. What is certain is that the Board have failed. We need some people on the Board who have a football pedigree. The only one I know of who had any knowledge of football, however small that be, was Richard Smith, and he quit, presumably before his reputation was tarnished. Maybe someone out there can tell us if any other Board members have a football background?
  8. More Questions Than Answers

    For the life of me I cannot understand how the Board have got off with their silence this season. I am not aware of Company Law but would imagine that they must now make a statement to the shareholders as to what the hell went wrong over the past few months and what they have been doing to mitigate the disaster that has now visited us, This is a Board who have, in my opinion, a duty to the shareholders and season ticket holders to provide a full time lined explanation of the past year. This is a Board who have shown a complete lack of respect for the people (fans and sponsors and staff) by their secrecy. Was it not only at the start of last season that Cameron and Foran held a Q & A session about what the future held. Since then nothing but rubbish fed to the fans each week by the manager, for example about how we were to end in the Top 6, we have been conned big time. This club has been in existence for over 20 years and we have had an incredible journey but the infrastructure appears to be non existent. For example where are the young players coming through, I cannot name one single prospect that we are nurturing. Where are the basics like a proper training ground? Surely after all these years we could have identified a bit of ground to convert into a training facility. How on earth will we attract decent players with the facilities we have? Our stadium is horrible, a three sided area with a horrendous main stand. I look forward to the statement that must be forthcoming tomorrow or the next day from the Board. We are at an incredibly important cross roads for our club, get this wrong and we face decades in lower league football. The potential is there for Inverness, just witness yesterdays crowd.
  9. Hartley refused to live in Inverness when last interviewed or he would have been our manager. Not likely to relocate and anyone who would not live up here should not be offered what would in effect be a part time position.

    So CC spoke the truth! What exactly is his role within the club apart from the successful lottery thing. If his role is youth development then he too is sleep walking.
  11. Ross County -V- Inverness CT

    Got out of my sick bed as I had a sense of loyalty which none of our players have. Disgraceful performance. Vigurs as captain a joke and Draper on the bench shows what a backside Foran has made of this. Where on earth are our young stars of the future? What do Messrs Christie and Shearer do all day. I could not name one up and coming Ross, Christie or Polworth? Why are we almost bottom of the Development League? When you look at the likes of that mob over the bridge, Hamilton, Kilmarnock we are light years behind. Apparently Kilmarnock ended the game up here just a few weeks ago with 8 teenagers on the park. Foran has been a disaster but the youth coaches and talent spotters who used to bring the likes of the Shinnies to the club are posted missing, sack them too and start again.
  12. Development League 2016/17

    Doesn't that just say it all, poorly placed in both leagues in which we compete, or rather don't compete. Suggests the club is being poorly managed throughout.

    Well I think Sutherland still has a huge influence in the board. The Chairman is a Sutherland pick as are one or two of the other members. Whether that is stifling the club or not we will never know apart from the rumours that one other wealthy football keen Inverness businessman will have nothing to do with ICT whilst Sutherland's influence remains. Time for change, regardless.
  14. Team for Motherwell

    I couldn't care less who plays as long as we win. I sincerely hope that the whole squad were at work today having a drains up and focusing on one of the biggest games ever for ICT next weekend. The players cannot be absolved from blame and need to take some responsibility. The problem is that a good number of them are for the off in 6 weeks time and probably couldn't give a damn. Days off will hopefully be cancelled from now until the end of the season, the players owe it to the poor staff at the Club who could also be out of a job in a few weeks. We need leaders on the field as well as off. Warren is a complete disgrace if he has been sent off as is Cole. How Kenny Cameron didn't think about getting someone in to give Ritchie a hand after it was apparent at Christmas that we were in trouble is beyond me. He too is massively culpable. Anyway come 3pm next Saturday i will be as positive and hopeful as ever. We have won all 5 after split games before and we can do it again.
  15. Aberdeen -V- Inverness CT

    OK OK, I'll take the draw
