    • Celtic 3-1 Inverness CT - Scottish Cup Final
      Best for Inverness on a difficult day was Wallace Duffy. What an invitingly sumptuous cross for Dan Mackay to power in a diving header. Cammy Harper on the other flank was equally impressive against Celtic's wide players and in midfield David Carson and Sean Welsh battled hard to stem the possession that Celtic were always going to dominate. We struggled up front working off scraps but substitute Dan Mackay scored that brilliant late power header to give us hope, albeit only fleeting. In general our defence stood firm for large parts of the game, seemingly working to a plan. Much better than many Premiership teams fared this season. Nobody hid in this game but we were restricted to what we could by a quality treble winning side. Blood, sweat and tears of pride.

      As the season draws to a close we will not see so many of these guys here next season, but it has been an abstract pleasure reporting on our once again rollercoaster of a season.

      See you all back refreshed for 23/24.

    • Celtic -V- Inverness CT - Scottish Cup Final
      The wait is over: Having lain idle since the 5th of May Championship flop against Ayr United, the long wait for the Scottish Cup Final is over for the Caley Jags. I imagine the stattos amongst us will be searching their Guiness Book of Records to find out the biggest winning margin in the Scottish Cup Final. I'll save you the bother. Renton 6-1 v Cambuslang on 4th February 1888. Or, ominously, Celtic 6-1 Hibernian on 6th May 1972. Are we about to change records?
      Win or lose, I hope you all enjoy the occasion.

    • Falkirk 0-3 Inverness CT - Scottish Cup Semi Final
      Semi-Final Joy: With a VAR assisted penalty, Billy Mckay opened the scoring early in the first half. Dan Mackay headed in the second from an inviting Jay Henderson Cross. Falkirk had their moments, Callumn Morrison hitting the post after some defensive indecision on the edge of the box. However, we did our own post hitting and Billy Mckay wrapped up the victory in the second half with a well taken finish, his 100th goal for the Caley Jags. That ensured our progress into the final. Nathan Shaw was unfortunate twice off the post and Falkirk were denied a consolation by some dogged defending. All in, comfortable in the end and Hampden calling once more.

    • Falkirk -V- Inverness CT - Scottish Cup Semi Final
      The last time we played Falkirk at Hampden in front of 37,000 fans, it was a history making event. I don't really need to tell you how that worked out, but for those that were on another planet, we won the Scottish Cup by beating Falkirk 2-1. Since then both clubs have underachieved and hit the skids. Falkirk are now trying to get themselves out of league 1 and we are desperately trying to keep ourselves in the Premiership play-off slot after a horrendous season littered with injuries to the whole squad. A third round struggle past Stirling Albion before we went through to the 5th round by default against Queens Park, but since then have comfortably disposed of Premiership opposition in Livingston and Kilmarnock. Falkirk got here by putting six past Wick Academy before a narrow 2-1 win at Alloa. They then dumped media darlings Darvel 5-1 and in the quarter final put out Ayr United. On paper we will be the bookies favourites. That's not something we are normally comfortable with and I fully expect Falkirk will also fancy their chances in this one, and rightly so. Be warned!

    • Inverness CT 1-1 Dundee - Report
      Applause for Tommy Cumming set the scene on a dry but breezy afternoon. As it panned out it ended all square. Dundee were quick out of the blocks and pestered Mark Ridgers early on without creating the clear cut chance to open the scoring. Level at the break, the Dark Blues continued in the same vein after the break and made the breakthrough on the hour when Lyall Cameron scored. However we have been resilient of late and substitute Austin Samuels earned us a point with fifteen minutes remaining as we came back at Dundee to quieten their raucous support who firmly believe Billy is a short rotund person born out of wedlock!

  1. Past hour
  2. Where has the club statement come from? I’ve not seen it yet.
  3. Scott Burns in the record. However, to correct what I've said it's reduced terms his been offered. So wages could be fine but contract length might be an issue.
  4. Always 2 sides to a story. Club denying Shane was told by email. He had face to face then received email confrming detail of meeting. "A Caley Thistle spokesman insisted that the process had been followed fully and properly, with Sutherland interviewed by sporting director John Robertson. what's the odds. Either way, it's getting a bit messy out there, however please reserve judgement until both parties have their say.
  5. I bet Coco the clown never got his 2 year head coach extension by email ! Well done Shane for going public . Show these Dundee mob for what they’re worth .
  6. Not a good sign. Where have you seen this if you don’t mind me asking. Good on Shane for outing the club like this though, even if it has made me feel second hand embarrassment.
  7. If it's correct that Billy Mckay has been offered reduced wages in a new contract, they are playing a dangerous game, we can't afford to let a quality player like Billy leave, unless they have someone better to come in and replace him. We need all the proven goalscorers we can get.
  8. If my memory serves me well, did we not do something similar when Duncan Shearer was relieved of his coaching duties?
  9. Disgusting way for the club to behave . What is going on in there?
  10. Today
  11. I think folk get that tbh. But telling someone by email isn't a good look....
  12. Disappointed that Shane is getting an extension but it is presumably because of his injury rather than his ability. A club that loses an underlying £0.8m a year needs to cut costs and I guess we just can’t keep paying for wages, rehabilitation costs and potentially further operations for players who aren’t playing. We did all that for a year for Sutherland and Walsh too, who I’d imagine will suffer a similar fate.
  13. The club is a joke. Imagine informing players that they are being released by email. Absolute disgrace. No wonder we can't attract players if this is how we treat them. Embarrassing + it sounds like he was having to pay for his medical treatment and the club physio informed him it will be cheaper to retire. WTF
  14. We just seem incapable of handling things professionally or with a bit of humanity. This is not the first time player departures have been handled extremely poorly. Really poor show.
  15. We are a tinpot club and have been for the last few years
  16. TBH I'm not surprised we didn't offer Shane another contract, I thought it was pretty good of us to offer another year given he would, in best case only have 2/3 months of game time available. Unfortunate it wasn't to be but to release players via email is just pathetic. Reminds me of hearing about Tokley being released via text message back in the day.
  17. Glad the feel good factor from the cup final lasted a whole five days.
  18. Offering Mckay reduced wages to sign a new deal
  19. Regardless of whether you feel Shane should have got another contract or not...releasing players by email?! What are the club thinking? Totally unprofessional and frankly just unpleasant and uncaring. This is the sort of thing that, when word gets around, will put players off joining us as well.
  20. What the hell are we thinking here releasing players by email?
  21. Quote: "Meanwhile, I can now take a few weeks off before it all starts again for, what could be, my final season of doing the NPL." I certainly hope not, mate - It's the only thing now that keeps me up-to-date with what's going on with the best FC in Scotland!!! Please keep on going!!!!!!!!!!!
  22. Yesterday
  23. I thought Mr Rendall might feature in a list of well-travelled ICT fans. I see him often but I don’t think he posts on here (cue Jim proving me wrong).
  24. I don’t like playing them either but don’t worry it’s a new Dundee side, plus it’s only once this season. When did we last play Airdrie? Wouldn’t mind 3 away trips there this year
  25. Thinking about positions (depending on who stays) but CB, RB, CM, RW/RM, LW/LM, CF https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/scottish-premiership/endendevertraege/wettbewerb/SC1 https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/scottish-championship/endendevertraege/wettbewerb/SC2 Plenty options out there, wouldnt mind seeing Blair Alston, Kai Fotheringham, maybe a young striker also Mikey Devlin alhough he has a horrednous injury record could be a gamble at CB as hes a quality player when fit. It'll all be driven by our budgets though and not sure in some cases we can afford the level of player to replace some of those leaving
  26. Just played Dundee 4 times this season and minimum with airdrie next........its depressingly repetitive
  27. Ok then, I'll mention the first Denmark trip. Pre-season 2004/05/06 i think. Nykobing-Falster Alliancen. First European goal scored by Liam Fox Nordjaeland (5 dots to Farum) They were managed by Morten Weighorst at the time Here's Jim Rendall's wee write up in the 25 years nostalgia articles Five dots to Farum ..... The second campaign in the top flight was always going to have an anti-climax feel to it for me after the season started with Inverness in action abroad! The train down to South Denmark from Copenhagen to Nykobing wasn't exactly with the same anticipation as the trek to Giurgiu, but in 2005 who could have envisaged that ICT would ever play competitive International football! Walking around the quaint Danish town I was beginning to fear I might be the only visiting fan! The small posse never bumped into each other ahead of the game, but we were ultimately a collected gathering of five at the first ever ICT game abroad with Don Taylor, his wife and son as well as another lass (mee) lending our support. Nykobing Falsters Alliancen was the rather cumbersome name of an allegedly new Danish super club, but as far as I am aware they have never troubled the top tier. They were to beat ICT on our European bow 2-1 with Liam Fox claiming our first overseas goal. We all spent some quality time in Copenhagen, which really is a fabulous city, joined as we were by one more fan, Alex ahead of the local metro train out to Farum. It was a well heeled sleepy hedgerow suburban town at the end of the metro line. It took an age, but we eventually got down to five dots on the train map in the carriage, a phrase that stuck in the legend of the trip! Nordsjaelland's stadium had a hotel, where the team were staying, complete with a bar/restaurant. The pre and post match tipples were scooped here, latterly with the team chomping a meal ahead of having a night on the town in the city. This was a well earned night out as we had just beaten an up and coming top flight Danish team 1-0 on a very warm afternoon. David Proctor gave us the win, as we all enjoyed cinema-esque padded seats, albeit they were getting rather hot! Nordsjaelland would crop up in competitive European football versus Queen of the South a few years later, and only one fan travelled to Scotland, so respect to the six of us who went to Denmark for friendlies!
