  1. I think Essons problem is age and fitness. Do we recall Cammy?
  2. Not been on here for a while due to laptop problems but anyway heres my tuppence worth. I've not been able to get to a game this season but have seen what TV has had to offer and what the papers write. I do think its been a pretty bad season for us but I also see that as being the same for a number of teams. There is six points between sixth and twelfth so, to me, that is seven teams fighting relegation. Any of those teams could kick away, including us, and any of them could end in bottom two. I wont give up believing till its mathematically impossible too avoid going down. Relegation...Is it so bad in the current set up. There is more money filtering down now as opposed to last time. There is still a lot of quality in Championship as can be seen by the difficulty Rangers Hearts Hibs and DU have found trying to get back up. I think we'll survive but I also hanker a wee bit for a change of scenery
  3. Signed for Raith today till end of season
  4. From this site Scotty 4th round tie played on 14th Feb 98 ended one each. ICT scorer Sheerin. Replay at TCS on 18th Feb finished 2-3 Our scorers Thompson and McCulloch. Crowd 5821
  5. All thats needed is for our support to show kindness and a highland welcome. A simple banner - 'Inverness CT Fans Offer a Sincere and Warm Welcome to The Rangers FC on Their First Ever Visit to TCS' - No hatred, no bigotry and no malice in those words
  6. Think Barton will still be on his 3 week suspension
  7. Head to Heads Played 18 - 9 ICT wins and 3 draws in all comps. 7 ICT wins in league. Of 7 league games played at Hamilton ICT have won 6 and Hamilton 1 In 8 games played at TCS Hamilton have won 4 and 3 have been drawn
  8. It is true. They have never beat us at TCS. Saturday was 10th meeting at TCS and we have won 6. Overall head to head - 24 played 10 ICT wins 10 Draws in all comps
  9. Yes DD, I can afford to make the trip 'once in a while'. Just not every other week as I used to.
  10. poy

    It was suggested by one of the TV pundits (Michael Stewart I think) that Polworth compliments Tansey whereas Vigurs stifles him.
  11. That Dunfermline game was a highly organised concerted effort by Dunfermline to get a big support behind their team in the fight against the drop. The crowd was 6464 and the South stand was chocka. In recent years folks disposable finances have taken a bit hit and the spare money just isnt there for many. Personally I still support the club with player sponsorship but I have to be very selective as to what home games I attend. Train fares continue to rise as do costs of food and beverage for a day out + entry cost. Three or four years ago I'd think nothing of blowing £100 - £150 on a day trip to Sneck for a match. Sometimes I'd add cost of overnight stay if midweek game. Now circummstances have changed I have to be more frugal. Many folk are in similar financial positions and are not following their teams to away games. My guesstimate from TV was that maybe 150 - 200 Dundee fans travelled on saturday whereas in the past that would have been 400-500 at least. The cost of the day out has gone up but wages have stayed stagnant so travelling fans are choosing to stay at home.
  12. From TV at lots of angles, and considering the rule changes, it was a penalty. If a penalty was given it would be a yellow and not red. If deemed outside the box its red. In my opinion Draper was slightly ahead and had the right to cut across the Celtic guy. After all that's where the ball was. According to Howard Webb its a penalty because although incident starts outside the box it continues in.
  13. I don't think, having watched two or three of their games, that Celtic are any better this season than before. Last night they played five defenders and two defensive mids yet couldn't hold back the three. For a team that professes to be of European standard their defence is shocking. Going forward they have been scoring a lot of goals but they are beatable. They are there for the taking and, on top form, we can be the takers.
  14. George Best, Paul Gascoine to name just two.
  15. I wonder at times if people really know the purpose of the dots. Like or dislike a post or comment or is it like or dislike a person who makes a post or comment? Some time ago I was shocked that someone got a red dot for announcing an upcoming development game. A straight forward announcement in the form of 'our boys are playing xyz on such and such a date at such and such a time at abc venue. A simple piece of information for those interested and the poster got a red dot from another. It didn't surprise me when I looked at who had given it but it did make me question the reason. Albeit the spelling and grammar of the announcement was not up to degree standard English but 1. Did they not like the announcement? 2. Did they not like the game being played, the opposition team, the date and time or the venue? 3. Did they not like the person providing the announcement? Or did the dotter have such a high and mighty belief in his own academic standards that he was really making an anonymous attempt at pointing out the posters limited abilities?
