  1. Scottish Cup 4th Round Draw

    I just love the Scottish Cup (& not just because of 2015...) - I remember Auchinleck Talbot (I think..) playing Hearts at Tynecastle for one...and as for all the wonderful cup ties we had as a lower league club. It's great to see small clubs get a tie against the 'big boys' & as DoofersDad rightly said, these clubs have earned the right to these ties. What with TV cash & a potential big gate, these ties represent a huge incentive for the smaller clubs & can make a real difference to their finances.
  2. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Or the Nip Inn...
  3. Team for Brechin City game

    Wonder if the game may be off?
  4. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Just go for a stroll down by the river & through the Ness Islands...nice way to spend an evening... Hope you have a great time up in Inverness (well, not too great as I want ICT in the final...)!
  5. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    McDairmaid Park would be a great venue for the final (as it was in 2003), but would maybe guess St Mirren Park? As has been said already - we should definetly NOT underestimate Crusaders & treat the semi final with respect!
  6. Definetly the toughest tie so far but the youth team have done very well & should go into this tie full of confidence. Will go if I'm not working...
  7. ICTFC Gain SFA Progressive Performance Award

    That's excellent news & well done to everyone concerned at the club
  8. Who next for Scotland?

    It's looking very much like it'll be Michael O'Neill then...can't say I'm unhappy about that
  9. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    Think, as others have said, that we should push hard to market this game, with it being Crusaders we are playing - it's something different. Cheap tickets & lots of offers to encourage a big crowd (although I think a funny kick off time & possibly televised may put paid to that). I'm kinda disappointed it isn't an away tie (I fancied a trip to Belfast or Oswestry....or Dumbarton...hmmm😀), but from the clubs point of view, it's a good draw. Suprised TNS & Crusaders didn't draw each other, to be honest...still a possibility of not having any Scottish clubs in the final..
  10. Stadium Improvements/Enhancing the Crowd

    Still have that top...it's my 'lucky cup top' - not that footy fans are superstitious or anything....if I'm heading to Belfast or Oswestry (or even Dumbarton..), I'll dig it out of the drawer.. That season's away top (both with/without the fans names) is, imho, one of the nicest designs we've had.
  11. NICK ROSS Trialist

    That makes sense to me...he could be an asset (even on a short term deal). I wasn't at the County charity game, but someone I know was and commented on how well NR & Doran linked up.. Worth a punt, I think - although, as I said already, just a basic deal which fits in with our current wage structure
  12. NICK ROSS Trialist

    Think the youth team would be a good place to start...obviously not pitching someone straight in, but there are sime great prospects there, I'm sure - good strikers are hard to find on a transfer!
  13. NICK ROSS Trialist

    Me too, with the obvious caveat that he has to fit into the current wage structure of the club. Probably a short-term deal, which maybe would suit both us & Nick (if he is looking for a move overseas). My only concern is: how hungry is he? He never quite managed to nail down a starting place last time he was here & I don't personally think a lack of ability was the reason. Would also agree that those who are saying that signing a striker is a priority - however, we must have some prospects from the youths who could step up here? Or Susan....?! However, think he would have signed by now if he wanted to or if Robbo thought he would add to the team...who knows? Maybe finances are too tight to allow it?

    Interesting feature, which I missed on the night as I was sitting shivering in the North Stand...silly me! I have to agree with Robbo about the history though - as a former Jaggie, we do have a long shared history with 'Caley', but our club was formed in 1994...please don't get me started on the Refuseniks who abandoned us though!!
  15. Irn Bru Cup semi final

    I would like The New Saints away - purely for ease of travelling (have driven down that way a few times) & think it would be easier than going to Belfast -although I'd take Crusaders away too. Since I missed the Astra away game, it's probably the closest I'll get to a European away trip for a long time, if ever! Suspect we will get Dumbarton away though....
