  1. ALBA HALF TIME FEATURE - RAE & ROBBO

    Give it a rest, it's ancient history now,. Amazing people are still banging on about it. Robbo knows us since our formation, and that's fine. As it should be.There is no agenda.
  2. Big Man / Wee man versus Wee Man / Wee Man

    I'm up for that. How short are you?
  3. Big Man / Wee man versus Wee Man / Wee Man

    I'd love to have him back, but he is getting Premier League wages, so it is probably unlikely, and understandable if he had reservations about coming back here after the way he was treated.
  4. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Robbo's positivity is great, and very persuasive. Good to hear.
  5. ALBA HALF TIME FEATURE - RAE & ROBBO

    Yes, hard not to warm someone who sees our club in the context of our dolphins. What a marketing opportunity! We've got dolphins, you've not.
  6. John Robertson MOM

    Well done, that man. Just don't follow in the footsteps of your predecessor who got MoM around this time last year. Lol, only joking, I think.
  7. The problem was it wasn't 'factual'.
  8. Livingston -V- Inverness CT

    I think with a bit of time and coaching Bell will come good in the scoring stakes. It is still early days for a new team, but improving all the time.
  9. Livingston -V- Inverness CT

    Encouraging stuff. It's always easy to say 'sign a striker', but every team in the country is trying exactly the same thing. And if we did unearth a gem, they would be after him too. Give the lad Bell a chance to show what he can do. Billy McKay took a while before he was suddenly scoring every week. As long as we can keep improving the goals will come - I hope.
  10. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    too much pessimism. We are a completely different team now, and you have to accept that. So we are starting all over again. We have defensive problems, but Robbo, as he said in the interview, is well aware of that. However, there is some promise in other areas of the pitch. We will improve, but I don't think it is unrealistic to consider us a mid table side at the moment, with the possibility that we can build on that and move up over time. This is the beginning of a new project, our previous success is now history. But there is no reason that it won't be an exciting ride once again, given a bit of time. Look at the St Mirren comments, they are far more positive than our own doom mongers!
  11. St Mirren -V- Inverness CT

    Exactly. People ought to realise that we are starting from scratch, building a new team. If we hold our own, stay mid table, then we can progress from there, whether that is in the second half of the season, or next season. We are playing settled teams with good players who have been together for some time. I didn't think we'd get much from today, but we were level pegging until the last quarter, so not too bad and something to build on.
  12. Brechin City -V- Inverness CT

    Great result, just what we needed to kickstart our season. That will do the players the world of good. Looks like the Queens, Mirren and Dunf might be the teams to challenge this season, though no doubt lots of twists and turns to come. That's what will make it, hopefully, an exciting league, with not a lot between most of the teams.
  13. Brechin City -V- Inverness CT

    Early clearance from Ridgers ends up in the famous Brechin hedge...new ball required. New ball needed again as Elsdon fires one in the hedge Now you don't get this at the Bernabeu. Lower league football has a charm all of its own.
  14. Richie Foran Has Left The Building

    I understand he was due severance, but it is a matter of months not years, so the worry over this can be put behind us. Anyway, whatever he gets is dwarfed by the £1m he cost us in relegation Time to move on.
  15. ICTFC Open Night

    Unbelievably harsh and negative, DD. Do you really think they are not signed up to the new Chairman's approach? Easy to pick holes and cast aspersions when there is, in your own words, no evidence for them. On a more positive note, did anyone ask about fan representation on the board? would seem like a good idea to me, and is a feature of many smaller, more progressive clubs.
