  1. Dundee Utd -V- Inverness CT

    That chip from Vigurs... The whole move reminds me of the goal Ryan Christie scored against Dundee at Dens.
  2. Worst Ict team ever?

    Aren't most things? I'm sure if the board knew how things would turn out, they would have done it differently. I have said before that I was glad at the time that the board decided to rebuff both the approach for Hughes by United, and Aberdeen's bid for Tansey. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish they'd accepted both.
  3. Worst Ict team ever?

    No, the seeds were sown when the club decided to hold on to a Scottish Cup manager, and didn't let hIm speak to Dundee United.
  4. Analysis so far!

    The problem is that, while we were playing it along the back, there was often little or no movement in front of the defence, which led them to keep passing along the back 4. All it needed was a misplaced pass, a heavy touch, or an interception of a telegraphed pass, and the opposition were through on goal. While the opposition can't hurt you if you've got the ball, they can if you give it to them cheaply. The key is moving the ball at pace. We didn't. Everything was so ponderous at times, that the opposition had time to regroup and reorganise in front of us, removing any space.

    Let's regularly fill the other three first, before worrying about that, eh.
  6. Analysis so far!

    Under Hughes, we routinely allowed ourselves to be pressed in our own defensive third, resulting in either a hoof up the park which conceded possession, or a mistake next to our goal that created a chance, and often a goal. That's when we weren't passing the ball back to our keeper on his weak foot.
  7. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    We were terrible in his last season at times. Winning 4 out of 5 after the split put a gloss on the season that was probably undeserved over the piece. While retaining possession makes it harder for the opposition to score as they don't have the ball, our implementation was often flawed. In attack we were so ponderous that the opposition were able to constantly reorganise behind the ball. In defence, opponents pressed us in our defensive third and waited for the inevitable mistake.
  8. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    That was just weird. The reaction to equalising was muted - like the consolation goal in a 8-1 thrashing! There was more reaction after the offside goal. Defending for all three was appalling - too much space given to the opposition.
  9. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    Hughes chucked it after we didn't let him talk to Dundee Utd. From that point on, he was working his ticket. Not saying there isn't any blame attached to the board, but it isn't all their fault.
  10. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    To lay all of that at the door of Ridgers is harsh. Going by the highlights, we just can't defend. He certainly could have done better with a couple of the goals, but the defence give him little help. Our ability to conced goals when we've got the ball in the opposition penalty box is breathtaking.
  11. Aberdeen U20 -V- Inverness CT

    Do you mean where he arced his run back away from both the ball and Aberdeen player, or when he fell on his backside and tried (and failed) to rugby tackle the player with the ball? We should probably melt him down for glue, but I doubt that would stick to anything either!
  12. Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    Do you mean the playoff at the top or the bottom?
  13. Worst summer in the clubs history

    No doubt our Chairman will put together a press conference to keep us fans fully up to date as a matter of urgency.
  14. Worst summer in the clubs history

    If this is true, the entire board needs to go right now.
