I've just returned to Inverness after 10 days "away". I was mystified why I couldn't find any mention of our club's game on a blank Saturday, following our failure to beat Dundee and consequently progress into the next round of the Scottish Cup. I felt sure we would have fixed up a game to make sure we don't accumulate our normal pile-up of fixtures at the real business end of the season, when suspensions and injuries can take their toll. I had assumed that the club had spent a lot of money to ensure a few of our recent home games went ahead showed that as worthwhile aim. I tried unsuccessfully to research online why we did not fix up anything. All became clearer when I visited the Inverness library today and read the last edition (last Thursdays) of the Highland News. The back-page had it all - the head-line "Dunfermline Snubbed Over Irn-Bru Mess". It quoted our manager saying that the uncertainty over when our Irn-Bru Cup semi-final would be played left the club with no time to make arrangements to play a league fixture..

This is really unbelievable. We were knocked out of the Scottish Cup on Tuesday 30th January. That very evening, Dunfermline Athletic proposed to our club that we play our scheduled game against them on our Irn-Bru semi-final week-end on our blank date. As detailed on the Dunfermline Athletic web-site, Chairman Ross McArthur commented "as both ourselves and Inverness had a free Saturday on the 10th February, with both clubs being knocked out of the Scottish Cup, I have tried very hard since Tuesday evening to see if Inverness would re-schedule our fixture to that date. Inverness declined to do so. 
Therefore, we have agreed with our colleagues at Livingston that we will reschedule our outstanding fixture from 30 December, to next Saturday 10 February. I am extremely grateful to Livingston for fitting in the match at very short notice."

I am surprised that this has not raised one single comment. If 11 days notice of a re-arranged game is not enough, then just how much time does our club need? We now face a Tuesday night journey to Dunfermline for the re-arranged game on 06 March. That's a pleasing thought for our Inverness supporters don't you think?

It was (briefly) discussed in this thread:
