  1. Highland Derbies Next Season

    We aren't the same team - just the badge & a couple of the players. Rebuilding in progress!
  2. Highland Derbies Next Season

    How could this season NOT be classed as a rebuilding exercise! Totally different scenario to the last relegation....new manager, badly depleted squad, very tight budget (player coming in were on about 25% of the pay of the top earners in premeir days, allegedly), boardroom turmoil. Last time, TB had already started rebuilding before we went down Totally unrealistic to expect a quick fire return to the top flight, I feel - expecting a serious promotion push next season though.
  3. Relegation

    Very harsh on Robbo, I think. Yes, our league position isn't nearly good enough, but given the turmoil surrounding the club at the start of the season & the huge turnover (& miniscule budget), I don't think Jose Mourinho would have done much better! This season was all about rebuilding & stabilising - I always felt that our main aim was avoiding 2 successive relegations, anything else being a bonus (including the Irn-Bru cup!). Look at what happened to Dunfermline after relegation - that could still be us this season! Crucial to finish no lower than 8th - that would be a successful season for me. Next season will be crucial, imho - that's when to judge Robbo. We really need to be pushing for, at a minimum, the playoffs.
  4. Relegation

    I couldn't agree more - I'd rather see a well run club, living within its means, than become another Gretna....no thanks!
  5. Dundee Utd -V- Inverness CT

    Robbo has said as much....frustrating, to say the least.
  6. 25th Anniversary

    This is a good move by the club - which is why I'm suprised to read it! Seriously, though, it's good to see the club planning to marking our 25th anniversary
  7. A Below Average Championship Club

    If we don't go down, then we won't be the next Dunfermline...given that Brechin will finish bottom, it's just about avoiding 9th, which we are good enough to do, without being complacent. I'd quite happily take Dunfermline's position just now! No competition is a 'nothing' competition & I, for one, am looking forward to the Irn-Bru cup final.
  8. Keeping 11 on the pitch

    I got a great view of this at Pittodrie & have never forgiven Neil Lennon to this day for his disgraceful actions. Think I had to be persuaded not to run onto the pitch after Lennon myself!! I remember Juanjo being particularly upset, as his family were over from Spain to watch him play, if I remember correctly? Two things I took from that day - ICT were a decent team that could compete at that level & Neil Lennon was a cheating scumbag of a player...I may let this go one day, but not yet 😀 One of our more fondly remembered ex players - I was definetly a fan of Juanjo!
  9. Highland Derbies Next Season

    That proved to be a very accurate prediction, Caman!

    Season ticket holders = 12th March. General public = 13th March. Was on twitter today
  11. Highland Derbies Next Season

    Don't see why not - this season was all about rebuilding & regrouping....obviously still a work in progress!!
  12. A Below Average Championship Club

    Suspect this may be the case - the pitch has never been the same since we had to install the undersoil heating.
  13. Inverness CT -V- Crusaders

    Fair point, but for the team, it's the actual physicsal fitness that creeps in - me, its more about having my head screwed on!!
  14. Captaincy

    Toss up between Mckay, Tremarco & , perhaps, Donaldson. I would have thought Vigurs, but a captain needs a calm head & not be mouthing off to the refs. You could say that about others though....

    It'll probably be Palmerston...just in case TNS had knocked out Dumbarton... For selfish reasons, hope it's Saturday 24th (as can't make it on the Sunday). McDairmid park would be decent (and will hopefully be the same outcome as in 2003!)
