  1. A Below Average Championship Club

    We can't blame the pitch or the referees, guys. We are bang average and the reasons are various: small core support, poor club management over past 2.5 years, poor recruitment, poor discipline, hangovers from previous regimes etc. My concern is not this season, but whether we can sustain another year as a full-time club. That is where we are at - either next season or the next, we have to accept the real possibility of having to go part-time. That is the magnitude of the failings over the last 2 seasons.
  2. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    That's the end of the league season. Maybe unlucky, but not finishing good chances has buried us.
  3. Falkirk -V- Inverness CT

    Agree with most of the above - indiscipline is costing us so many points this season: who knows how many today, but I reckon we would have got a point at least. I don't subscribe to the "we've blown our chance of play-offs" because of one result. We're still in the mix and Falkirk will beat other teams in the top six. Today we missed Vigurs and Polworth (Agree with OCG), but we can't really complain about that because Vigurs at least was because of his own yellow card count (most deserved, some not). So, discipline Mulraney for costing us points, get our 'A' midfield back and forget about today....except for Daniel Mackay's goal: we'll remember that and he should be used regularly from the bench to keep Oakley on his toes. A start for Mackay is not out of the question.
  4. Another goal could take us 5th. Come on lads - keep the foot on the gas!
  5. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Thoughts from brief highlights: Oakley dived very sweet strike by Mulraney superb set-up play from Polworth on several occasions fantastic tracking back by Vigurs to save a certain goal caught at least twice with our pants down at the back - Vigurs (above) saved a 3 on 0 situation. How does that happen at this level? Anyway, loads of positives and few negatives from a great result. It’s interesting watching the Falkirk and ICT highlights - seemed like different games!
  6. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    ..and we haven’t yet had the game-changing shocking decision from the ref!
  7. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    ...but they didn’t get 2!
  8. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Sounds like some top officiating again tonight....
  9. David Raven

    Top man, Dave the Rave - thanks for the outstanding memories! You have a right to question the finacial chaos that has ensued since the cup win - the management has been shambolic. Unfortunately, in football, mistakes tend to be compounded financially - in this case, the necessity to pay Hughes for garden leave impacted on the choice of the next manager (on account of cost), which got us relegated with falling attendances, leading to poor morale, even more player departures, poor form, early cup exits and falling attendances (repeat). I think the answer to the question "where has all the money gone?", while fair, is answered simply by the fact that the club has consistently run at a loss of ~£300k per annum for years and the books have been balanced by the various windfalls during that time (league and Scottish cup runs, Butcher compensation, Christie sale). That is a precarious existence, which will go wrong at some point. How wrong will be determined by the shrewdness of the board...ours failed that test spectacularly. The real issue is, and always will be, how do we get more people through the gate? If you look art the Scottish Prem this year, the league table almost exactly mirrors the average home attendances. The surprise should perhaps not be how far we have slid but just how outstanding our achievments were over those years when The Rave was with us. Apologies for the negative tone here - after hte game on Tuesday, I'm really quite upbeat about our prospects for this season, but I think we'll need to get used to the constant churn of players, as attendances are not going to recover significantly any time soon.
  10. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    I can see why Vigurs got the yellow, although it was purely accidental and Vigurs must have made contact because he went over to apologise - the Livi player just put his head in where most don't. It was the first yellow that was either a shocking decision by the ref or daft from Vigurs (dissent). Worst of all was the Livi player leading with his arm just before the sending off - not even given as a free kick. Definite yellow and possibly a red.
  11. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    ...oh, and Warren had a good game too.
  12. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    Don’t really know what to make of that. The guys were really comfortable in the first half - playing some decent football without creating much. Doran was a breath of fresh air. Then the red card - first one for Vigurs was either for trying to trip the boy who Polworth eventually nailed (also for a yellow) or for dissent. The second was for a high boot, which was harsh. 2nd half was a bit backs to the wall without Livi really producing much. Austin was excellent when he came on and created a couple of good chances. Oakley worked hard, but was persistently fouled and got nothing from the ref at all. Glad that Raven got his moment with the fans at the end, but two points wasted because of a combination of shabby reffing and Vigurs’ indiscipline. Still in touch and, if that’s the standard, we can definitely get to the play-offs....but we need to keep 11 on the pitch!
  13. Brechin -V- Inverness CT

    It’s results like these that make a season. Looked like we’d drop points after Tremarco was sent off, so an outstanding turnaround. HOWEVER, our discipline is going to take its toll: it has already taken Raven from us, now Tremarco will miss a game - add in the accumulated yellows for the likes of Vigurs and we might struggle to field a team towards the end of Jan! For now, however, we can rejoice in the fact that QoS, Livi, Dunfermline, Morton will be looking over their out - the Highlanders are coming!
  14. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Great seeing Doran back: like having a new signing! A fairly uninspiring performance, BUT a win AND another clean sheet! What a run the guys are putting together - those dark days of September seem a lifetime away now....thank God.
