  1. Keeping 11 on the pitch

    Yes, that's the one. Can you believe it is 14 years ago now? It was shocking at the time that Lennon's blatant cheating got our man sent off. ICT did successfully appeal the red card, but of course, as far as the match was concerned, the damage had been done. In recent times of course that sort of incident happens quite frequently in modern football, more's the pity. Personally, I had never liked Lennon as a player before then, but since that incident, along with many other ICT fans , I dislike him with a passion, both as a manager, pundit and human being. Some of his more unsavoury domestic issues which came to light when he was at Bolton, only confirm the contempt I have for him.
  2. Can we have less hype in future

    We only need to beat Ireland and Italy, and England to beat Ireland, and France to beat England, and we'll be 6 Nations champions. What can possibly go wrong?
  3. Game 30 - Greenock Morton (H) 24 Feb

    H/T 1-1 F/T 2-1 ICT Oakley Morton Harkins Crowd 2345
  4. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Let's be honest, Billy Mckay has never been near his best since his first spell with us. I'd not want to see him back now.
  5. Winter olympics - Elise Christie

    Just watched her 1500m short track semi final where she crashed out and got disqualified with half a lap to go. What is it with this girl? Is she just unlucky ? I don't think so. She was lying third with 3 to qualify for the final, with the others miles behind, when she tries to overtake the second placed girl and causes the fall which sees them both knocked out. Why not coast in for the remaining few seconds and get a definite final place? Doesn't seem that she has learned much from her 3 disqualifications 4 years ago in Socchi. Having said that, I hope she is not too badly injured (she left the ice on a stretcher), and that she is fit enough for her final event, and last chance for a medal, in a few days time.
  6. IRN BRU CHALLENGE CUP FINAL

    It will no doubt take the powers that be several weeks before deciding it should be played in Belfast at 10am on a Thursday morning.
  7. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    At times in the first half we looked quite in control against the part timers. What a change in the second half. It was definitely us who looked like the part timers. Embarrassing. I'd have put money on us missing that penalty. When did we last get one btw? And don't get me started on our complete lack of discipline this season. It just beggars belief. But hey ho, another final to look forward to.
  8. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    This is going to be a long last 15 minutes.
  9. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    ffs this is going rapidly pear shaped.
  10. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Well, when did we last get 3 goals before half time? And it should have been more. Crusaders are just shocking at defending, but they look quite sharp up front. Not afraid to shoot, and could have caused us problems if not for the two early goals. Same again in second half please.
  11. Winter olympics - Elise Christie

    My mistake. I thought I heard that 3 qualified for final. Perhaps that was only for semi final qualifying. Still, 4 disqualifications and one other crash out in her last 5 Olympic races does not sound like just bad luck too me. Let's see what she can do in her last race next week, assuming she is fit enough. Great to see our lady tin tray sliders do so well with gold and bronze.
  12. 25th Anniversary

    And maybe the match will be a cracker, to go with the crowdie.
  13. Ex-ICT players' news

    I see our old friend Eddie Ofere has now turned up in Vietnam, playing his first game for FLC Thanh Hoa yesterday.
  14. If it's your 18th, have a drink...

    Our famous win was just featured on BBC's football Focus in a piece about Ross Tokeley and Brora Rangers, prior to their game at Killie today. Great to see the goals again. Good luck to Brora, and Cove as they fly the flag for the Highland League in today's 5th round.
  15. Rank ICT Managers

    Don't know what became of C-H2. But I feel another "where are they now" thread coming on. Others, off the top of my head, who I don't see posting any more include Johnboy, The Fly, Pauliebees, Harry Chibber, Sneckboy. Must be dozens more.
  16. If it's your 18th, have a drink...

    You must have been very lonely there on your own.
  17. If it's your 18th, have a drink...

    Absolutely. Even the preceding Saturday was memorable for a different reason with a futile trip up from London (for 4 of us) for the postponed game .
  18. Ex-ICT players' news

    That's easy for you to say
  19. The Biggest Little Railway in the World

    Yes, I enjoyed watching that programme over the past few weeks.
  20. Game 29 - Dundee (H) 30 Jan

    H/T 1-1 F/T 2-1 ICT Polworth Dundee Leith-Smith Crowd 2123
  21. James Vincent

    EH ??? Not unless Dundee recall him a bit quick
  22. Susan

    Not "Susan" I know, but Doumbouya has indeed just left SKN St Polten in Austria, for a team in Thailand, PT Prachuap
  23. David Raven

    Yes, what more can we say about him? He is just a top man. Hope he gets Wrexham up to EFL2. I hope they realise how lucky they are to get such a true professional.
  24. David Raven

    Agree 100% I see he got on as sub after only 6 minutes today. Playing in front of over 8000. Not bad for 5th tier of English football. We'd like even half that at our home games.
  25. Falkirk -V- Inverness CT

    The count of red cards, yellow cards and penalties conceded this season is an absolute disgrace. We can't keep blaming the referees all the time. Clearly our indiscipline is at fault. JR needs to sort it out , and quickly.
