    Not a surprise I suppose. Glad that an extension was offered to a cup hero who still does a good job but I completely understand that it needed to be reduced terms. I like the quotes from the club here. David was part of the cup winning team that will forever hold a fondness in ICT hearts but he was also part of the relegation team and shouldn't expect to escape the harsh, punishing financial realities that ensue as a result. Players have to look after their families, this is their job and many are paid handsomely for it ... they create memories but their stay is transient. It is the club and its fans that endure. Thanks for the memories David. We wish you well. https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/football/inverness-caledonian-thistle/1368327/caley-thistle-defender-raven-rejects-reduced-contract-extension/

    Living proof that virtually any player can look good on youtube.

    At least the lad has said sorry I suppose ...

    We need a good photo-editor to set to work on changing the teams on this
  6. Falkirk -V- Inverness CT

    Pie and Bovril is often good for extra insight from more balanced opposing fans. Today is no different ... 1. When we've been 11 players over the last two games, we've been the best team they (Falkirk) have faced. 2. The sending-off changed everything. Who knows the result if Mulraney hadn't had his inexplicable meltdown. 3. Mulraney should be fined and ICT should pay that fine to Falkirk to pay for the damage he apparently inflicted on the dressing room door. 4. Why did we bother getting Baird and Austin when we already had Mackay at the club.

    David Raven signs for Wrexham to the end of the season. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42847002

    Daniel Mackay's goals per minutes played ratio is sensational by the way. Deserving of a start?
  9. Falkirk -V- Inverness CT

    From a Falkirk fan on Pie and Bovril ... "That Mulrainey is as thick as two short planks. It was a miracle he got away with his challenge on longridge which was a shocker and stick on second yellow only for the ref to bottle it. To then basically give the ref no option was hilarious stuff. Poor refereeing again though as he should'e been off for the tackle on longridge."
  10. Falkirk -V- Inverness CT

    Apparently he should have got a 2nd yellow for taking out Longridge before another bad tackle saw him get his 2nd yellow. His first yellow was only two minutes previously so it sounds like a completely headless couple of minutes for Mulraney. Hope the club seriously reprimand him for idiocy and letting his team-mates, club and fans down.

    He's probably upset that Hearts have just signed a speedy winger. Lack of maturity getting two yellows in such quick succession.

    Alex Fisher being talked about by Lineker Shearer and Wright on BBC 1 tonight. He signed for Yeovil today and drove 9 hours from Motherwell to meet the manager in dressing room just 1 hour before kick-off. Now on bench for FA cup tie vs Man Utd.
  13. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    A Dutch press article on the internet referring to his trial with Go Ahead Eagles says that, because of Zschusschen's journeyman tendencies, he uses a moving van instead of car. Here's hoping he has need of it again this month.
  14. I talked to number of folk yesterday on this subject and a fair few just refuse to see his contribution. Completely unfathomable that people can't see Polly's positive contribution. They seriously need to open their eyes. P.S. I'm not Polly
  15. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Well said. It can't be good for his playing prospects (for a club and for his beloved Wales) that he is completely starved of game time and invisible to the public eye. If you're a professional footballer with a limited shelf life, why on earth would you do that? If I was him, I'd be pulling out all the stops to get away pronto and make a fresh start.
  16. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    So glad I made the round trip for the game. Fairly even before 1st goal. A goal for each of the 3 strikers and a cracking first goal for Jake. Ref decent in 1st half, less good in 2nd. A Falkirk fan on P & B says that the last two games against them show to him that we are the best side they've faced all season. (Last game was 0-0, he acknowledged it should have been 0-4). We just need a free-scoring striker. Maybe one of the three tonight is finally going to step up to the plate!

    Another player that will see 2 consecutive relegations.

    Excellent post. No apology required.
  19. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    I wasn't at the game. Having now seen the highlights and re-run the Vigurs sending off incident umpteen times, freeze frame, slow-mo etc. I think I can say that: 1. Clearly it was accidental by Vigurs; but 2. By the time, he had positioned himself to attempt the kick overhead, the Livi player had nipped in front of him and so, "ideal world stuff", Vigurs should probably have attempted to pull out of the challenge before connecting. The ref doesn't have the benefit of endless video playback ... So, I can see how the yellow was given. As far as I understand, intent doesn't come into the decision unfortunately. However, brutal application of rules like this just ruins the game and regular ref. inconsistency in games breaks me. All in all, the sending off seems very unlucky on Vigurs' part ... although one might say that, when on a yellow, he should have been extra careful to stay on the right side. (In that regard, I'd like to know if his first yellow before that was for being stupid i.e. dissent or silly foul).
  20. Inverness CT -V- Livingston

    Vigurs and stupid yellows seem to go together like peas and carrots. He's learned nothing from St Mirren and has cost us again.
  21. Brechin -V- Inverness CT

    Oakley should get a start. He's going to end up another Fisher, wasted on the bench.
  22. Morton -V- Inverness CT

    Have said before that Seedorf could be really good for us. Glad to see him get a run out (although unfortunate circumstances). The naysayers maybe just saw one less good performance.

    Eh?! I would love JM to succeed ... and ideally succeed with us. It has absolutely nothing to do with fans getting used to an over-achieving club and consequently being over-critical. When we came up the leagues we had players on the flank that could provide crosses/assists and contribute with goals. I personally hoped (and thought) JM would cigar the Championship because we were moving down and he had shown promise from the start of his first season in the top flight. JM has some great attributes but the harsh reality is that he hasn't scored one senior goal for us and his number of assists (although not known) definitely seem on the low side. JR has himself made mention of JM's need to develop "end product" in at least one media interview. For a player to get special mention like that (but not in a destructively critical way) speaks volumes.
