  1. Number One

    Given how the club seem to have announced to the press that players were being released prior to telling players themselves (Meekings) and the poor management of the Draper transfer to save face I'd be tempted to side with OFW Re who's not being entirely up front in regards to his situation. If an appearance bonus is the problem sit him down and ask him to either remove it or defer it in order to play. It's not exactly something that hasn't happened before.
  2. Robertson worse than Foran?

    I'm willing to be patient because we've turned around more than 20 players in and out which means new players need a time to bed in. However I've seen very little encouragement thus far. This year might have to be more about consolidation rather than looking for bouncing back. That being said we were sitting mid table about a 3rd of the way through the season last time. Even by the challenge cup final we were miles behind the leaders Dundee. Can only hope it's early teething problems which will eventually ease as more team cohesion develops.
  3. Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Updating the squad list to filter players into contract length...
  4. CLUB STATEMENT : Supporter Behaviour at Brechin

    Boohoo all the older boys and girls are picking on us. It's totally OTT. They swear too etc..... Suck it up and don't be so dumb as to get caught and you won't get the bother. As to what Old Firm fans think of our club statement, perhaps if their own boards actually did something about their own support instead of trying to shift the blame onto "them as well" then their fans wouldn't continuously drag Scottish football through the gutter on such a regular basis. Our board have acted strongly to both a complaint by Brechin and noise from SFA. They didn't have much choice anyway. Perhaps the tone could have been different. Maybe it was a little condescending and tarnished all with one brush. But they had to, realistically, say something.
  5. Aberdeen U20 -V- Inverness CT

    The 2 goals we conceded were absolutely horrid and amatuer stuff. Something to tighten up on the training ground. Reminded me of the worst of last season. The chances we created showed that we might be clicking going forward and Liam Polworth is looking like he's gaining confidence again.
  6. CLUB STATEMENT : Supporter Behaviour at Brechin

    Quite simple really, the law and match conditions clearly state no pyrotechnics. Any ground in the country. Therefore if people choose to use them at grounds then they should accept the consequences of breaking the conditions (and henceforth the contract accepted on purchase) such as being ejected or banned. It's their call. Don't do the crime if you can't take the time. It's the same as sneaking substances into festivals. Feel free to try but if you get caught it's no one's fault but yours. According to the most recent statement on the official site, damage was caused to the ground for which Brechin have billed our club. If you're doing that, then you're a walloper and good riddance. You're giving the other fans a bad name. You're giving fellow "young team" and "ultras" a bad name. Those that know the difference between fun and vandalism. Atmosphere and loutish. You're not a "lad", you're a goat. As to drums and singing and banners and flags, the more the merrier. The more noise the better. Pyro has never been needed to create atmosphere in grounds in the UK before so, unless you're just crap at the aforementioned, it's not required now. Get behind the team, make all the noise, be creative, come up with songs and drum beats and chants. And icelandic style claps or Highland war cries. But follow the fairly reasonable rules and you'll not get bother. And if stewarts at away grounds ask you to stop, ignoring them or arguing won't work. Wish it would sometimes... And as for Rangers and Celtic fans getting away with murder. It's not about them, it's about us.
  7. Transfer in and outs

    Just because a player, or indeed any employee, seeks to leave their current employment due to a change in circumstances as per their contract they are under no obligation to accept the first offer that comes along. Who's to say other offers haven't been on significantly less money, mean moving a considerable distance that isn't favourable, at a level that he feels he can do better than (He may still have international ambitions this summer so being 2nd choice or at a low level may not enhance those). Just because a person wishes to leave one job they generally won't jump into the first available if they think they can help it. They pick the best for their own circumstances.
  8. Realistic points after 8 games

    Half way there and 4 points after 4 games. Reckon we need 2 wins from the next 4 to get us rolling. Try and get to 10 or 11 points and go from there.
  9. Glebe Park

    It's a lovely hedge tis true...
  10. Chalmers

    Well he's played centre half before and left back and gets up and down the line a lot so I would imagine he'd be suited to wing back as well. A formation in which he could perform several different roles where required.
  11. Brechin City -V- Inverness CT

    Neither do I really, however it can often be useful to gain a sense of perspective by looking at others.
  12. Brechin City -V- Inverness CT

    Falkirk, a team I'm sure many would expect to be top half this season, are 4 nil down at home v QOTS! The championship will have many twists and turns especially in the early part of the season. I don't expect them to be down there all season though.
  13. Raven not again

    If Robbo doesn't fancy him that's fair enough. It's his prerogative as a manager who is paid to win football matches and is in a profession where he might be only a few bad results from the sack. He has to make the calls that he thinks are best. However if Raven is fit and available he should really make the most of him while he's still here. He might not have the legs to canter up and down at full back but perhaps he could fill in at centre half or in midfield if required as Ross Tokely did towards the end of his time at the club. I for one think he'd be quite suited on the right as part of a back three. He's started today and we're 4 nil up at the time of writing.
  14. Transfer in and outs

    I believe a relegation release clause basically just means that he's free to leave without compensation if the club get relegated and another club offers him a deal. It's not a contract termination. He'd be perfectly entitled to sit out the rest of his deal unless the club choose to release him, and they'd probably have to give him a severance package. At the moment it seems he's essentially placed himself on gardening leave. His contract is being paid but hes not really involved. Mind you, I don't know how that sells himself to other clubs as a model pro.

    Alex Cooper gets his first for ICT!
