  1. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Sorry, I missed that.

    I will be glued to Alba cheering no the team on, wishing I could be there (missing out due to a family birthday). With tickets on sale at Perth, hopefully some more make the decision to go. I've been to our last two finals, will never forget either, particularly Hampden, and I really hope tomorrow can spark a positive end to the season. To all of you going, have a great, noisy, successful time!
  3. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Reading Robbo's comments on the club website, he implies Fon Williams is away. Anyone know anything?

    In the shop this afternoon, they told my wife they had sold 1600 tickets. Mark Ridgers was helping out when she was in buying gift vouchers. Just a pity I can't attend due to a family commitment, but hope all who go have a great day out.
  5. Absolutely no reason why today's game could not have gone ahead, We now face 5 of our last 12 games being midweek, and as I am often away during the week due to work commitments, I expect to miss the home ones, which is frustrating and calls into question the value of my season ticket. I don't blame the club, but the SPFL were short sighted and premature about this weekend. The traffic chaos ended yesterday, so they should have waited and reviewed things yesterday lunchtime. Rant over!
  6. Inverness CT -V- Morton

    I couldn't go today as travelling south. Listened to Open All Mikes, and the first goal sounded scrappy and the second was a soft penalty which went in off the post, according to the radio. Were both our "goals" correctly disallowed? Hitting the post and bar and missing an apparent sitter probably sums it up. We need to win the next two games against Dumbarton and Brechin and then take stock of where we are. I'm an optimist, but the top three seem safe, but Dundee United, Queen of the South and Dunfermline are as inconsistent as us.
  7. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Didn't see that coming! We had three youngsters on the bench on Sunday, albeit Austin was Cup-tied, but we are lacking strength in depth unless we have a replacement lined up.
  8. Player of the Year - Crusaders

    Nice to see Polly getting the plaudits. He is also in the SPFL Team of the Week.
  9. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Why was Trafford missing from the squad on Sunday: injury?

    I'm gutted: I had hoped for the Sunday as I have a birthday meal on the Saturday. Is it on tv?
  11. Captaincy

    Tremarco with Donaldson as his understudy. Remember Donaldson is still quite young.
  12. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Was the ref Welsh? Not having seen Mckay's first booking again, which from posts may have been wrong, I thought he was a cut above the refs I have seen this season, and was pretty even handed.
  13. Penalty Kicks

    There was a very long delay before he could take it, but he should have at least hit the target. The way Polly was fired and riled up, perhaps he should have taken it? Atkeast that would have stopped him getting his booking....

    If it is 24 or 25 March as planned, I need it to be the Sunday, preferably in Oerth as I am at a birthday party on the Saturday evening.
  15. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    I was worried going in to this one and, despite our early goal, Crusaders had the best of the opening exchanges, We then took control, with Polworth (best 45 from him in a long time) and a Vigurs controlling things. All three goals looked well taken from where I was sitting, and it could easily have been 5 or 6 by half time. We could easily have shipped a couple too, though. The second half was a shocker, with only Ridgers doing well: he kept us in it as we allowed ourselves to be outplayed and could not keep the ball. I was surprised at the niggle between the teams, and there could have been more cards. I taped it and want to see Mckay's first booking, but he deserved the second card. Their winger had the beating of him every time. That was a masterclass in how to nearly turn a comfortable lead into a defeat with a 45 minute horror show: we need to be better against Morton next week, But, we are in a final, and can hopefully lift our season with some silver wear. Last word for the pitch, what a mess! Towards the north stand, the ball failed to bounce a few times, saving us on one occasion, and it was debatable if it was playable. I can see more postponements unless we get a long dry spell.
  16. Ex ICT Players Score

    Dean Ebbe did what he could not do last season: score against a Scottish team.....
  17. Message for Supporters : 14/02/18

    That's an honest and genuine update, indicating a desire to protect the long term future whilst striving to return to the top level. We are a small club and need to find a way to live within our means and maximise our achievements. I am heartened by the statement. Roll on Sunday, assuming the pitch is playable.
  18. Ex-ICT players' news

    They are third bottom of their league at present with 18 points from 23 games. Astra sit fourth with 41 points.
  19. Ex-ICT players' news

    Credit to Ross Tokely and Brora. Holding Killie back until nearly half time and definitely not disgraced. I am keen to see the highlights, including the "crowd invasion" by the players.
  20. Livingston v Dunfermline 10th February

    I'd prefer a draw, that minimises the points team above us pick up. Everyone will take points off everyone else, so the fewer teams out of sight the better. Everyone from 2nd to 8th will feel they can get a play off place.
  21. David Raven

    He was an unused sub today. Boden started and played the full game. Wrexham are top, in the automatic promotion place.
  22. Brora Rangers 16 Fort William 0

    I was brought up in Fort William, but before they joined the Highland League and enjoyed home cup games. As an aside, they have doubled their points total for the season today with a 1-1 home draw with Clach. As Claggan Park is regularly waterlogged, how ironic that it was playable and our pitch was not. We seem to be having far more issues with water this season than in recent years.
  23. Susan

    Also with Gary Warren, he is on the February page of the club calendar.
  24. Player of the Year - Dundee

    I'm in London due to work, but with 7 votes cast and all for Mark Ridgers, does that indicate how tonight's game was!! We need to focus on Saturday now and a vital game for our play off hopes.
  25. David Raven

    And great to hear him speak so positively about his time me here!
