    • Neil McCann revealed as interim manager
      McCann's the Man

       After the game against Alloa Athletic last night, the ICT FC board have announced that former Hearts winger and colleague of John Robertson at Tynecastle, Neil McCann will take the managers job on a temporary basis until Robbo feels ready to resume his position after a recent family bereavement.

      Former Scotland winger McCann has previously spent 18 months as Dundee manager. He departed in October 2018 with the Dark Blue's bottom of the Premiership.

      Neil has had an illustrious career on the park. He was capped 26 times for Scotland scoring three goals. He played for Hearts over two spells making 99 appearances for the Tynecastle side. In 1998 he moved to Rangers shortly after Hearts lifted the Scottish Cup, where he made 119 appearances for the Gers gaining 3 Premier League titles, 4 more Scottish Cups and 2 League Cup winners medals.

      There will be a further club statement released today at a press conference where all will be revealed.

    • Inverness CT 2-2 Alloa Athletic - Report
      With temporary gaffers Barry Wilson and Ryan Esson taking care of proceedings, it was an energetic start for the hosts. However that was disrupted after twenty minutes when Innes Cameron burst through the middle to stroke the ball into the net as Ridgers came off his line. Against the run of play, but the Wasps did not care and they held the advantage to go in at the break one ahead. Not much was happening until Wallace Duffy thundered a left footer from over twenty-five yards high into the net. What a strike for your first senior goal. One minute later and substitute James Keatings was stroking us up to fifth in the table before the late penalty from Alan Trouten brought us back down to earth. Disappointing to throw away the lead, but there's more to be worrying about that a game of football.

    • Inverness CT -V- Alloa Athletic - Preview
      David Carson has returned to action and played a big part in the win at Ayr. Danny Devine has been out recently but he also played at Ayr. We are still without Lewis Toshney and Kevin McHattie on long term sickness benefits and they have been joined by Aaron Doran and loan signing Anthony McDonald. James Vincent was missing at Ayr as well. All three picked up injuries in training with Doran and McDonald possibly out for longer term.

    • Ayr United 0-2 Inverness CT - Report
      Big call for Robbo to drop four players from Wednesday but they paid dividends with MacGregor, Todorov and Carson all impressing today. MacGregor offers a much more mobile link between our midfield two in front of the defence and the wide players / forward than Keatings does whilst Carson was tenacious alongside Allardice marshalling McCowan well after he moved inside and also breaking forward to support our counters attacks. Todorov showed some excellent touches holding the ball up and Ridgers pulled off some superb saves particularly from McCowan and Walsh in each half.

    • Ayr United -V- Inverness CT
      Should Auld Acquaintances be forgot...

       We travel to Somerset Park, Ayr on Saturday for a 3:00pm kick-off against the Honest Men and renew acquaintances with a couple of former colleagues, namely Tom Walsh and Joe Chalmers.

      It's been a difficult few weeks for the Caley Jags with postponements in abundance although we did return to action in midweek after the big freeze relented. Unfortunately, despite dominating the game, we went down 1-0 to Queen of the South when Nortei Nortey scored his first goal for the Doonhamers. We seemed to lack composure or pick the right ball as we failed to unlock the visitors defence and resorted to shooting from distance which keeper Ferguson dealt with comfortably. Failing that, many of our efforts were blocked before troubling the keeper or blazed high and wide which meant a frustrating night all round for the Caley Jags and their supporters.

  2. H/T 1-1 F/T 2-1 ICT Sutherland Hearts Walker *Joker, please* (if I have one!)
  3. Fair dos all round. Prompt action/decent solution/great communication. Good luck all. Anyone grumbling about this needs to have a look at themselves in my opinion.
  4. HT 1-1 FT 1-2 ICT Sutherland Hearts Boyce Joker, please.
  5. Doesn't matter whether we rate him or not ... does he have his UEFA badges? Club licensing requires the manager to have reached a certain level of licensing qualification and Neil McCann is licensed up to (the highest) UEFA PRO level which qualifies him to not only manage in the topflight of any country but also to be an international manager if that was his wish. I am not sure what badges Barry or Ryan have but if its UEFA B for example then they can't take charge of the club on a permanent or semi-permanent basis. An interim manager would be classed as semi-permanent due to there being

  7. In many ways it is a side show, with the real issue being whatever conclusion James Hamilton QC draws. I just hope the truth comes out, but sadly the whole episode is now casting Scotland in a very bad light. We are even being compared to a “tin pot dictatorship”. The sooner this is over the better, as the Government has to focus on getting us through the pandemic and leading a recovery of the economy.
  8. Tickets and programme arrived today. Now 9669 sold: will we get to 10000?
  9. I got my tickets yesterday, and letter, all signed by Robbo, and I have to say, in his current circumstances, I am rather in awe of the man, and a tad emotional about it too. I hope he is getting the support he needs now and comes back when the time is right, because it's been such a difficult year.....it would be helpful if Hearts rolled over for us tomorrow as well, or at least share the points.
  10. Given everything in AS's submission to the Committee which cites Aberdein and his trial evidence, and confirms Nicola lied to the Scottish Parliament has been redacted......we are still on course for the whitewash of the SG's actions they have been frantically working towards, as AS can't speak to anything the Committee hasn't published... because if it hasn't been published by the Committee, the evidence is not deemed to exist, however many times it appears on the internet in other places. Nothing to do with protecting "vulnerable women" as far as I can see, (having a copy of both the submis
  11. Trying to figure out if his mug says "COYS" and he is a Spurs fan or if it says "BOYS".
  12. Scot Gardiner with the rationale behind the recent decisions.
  13. Well I don't know if you noticed but he has been working with Robbo for quite some time. He has experience at Elgin and Wick. Experience both good and bad is valid. Robbo has had successes and failures but look at the manager he is for us. He has the shared experience of Ryan and Charlie to draw upon. When you listen to him in interviews after games he is usually spot on in his assessment. I rate him and see his potential. Our club is great at bringing the best out of people who have been thrown on the scrap heap. We do it for players so why not for managerial staff? Or shall we say they are c
  14. I'm north-west of my TV screen - so somewhere in no-mans' land
  15. I’d give the digital pies a miss - they may contain a virus!
  16. Going OT here but I am sure I wasn't the only one who noticed the two switch roles for the second half.
  17. This is what fans expect and want. Clear information to explain decisions. Obviously not the day to day things but the big stuff or the stuff that impacts directly onto the fans. Fans can be an understanding bunch if kept informed. Fans can speculate wildly and become easily frustrated (particularly alongside poor results) when not informed/brushed aside. As an aside. Iain Auld made a big difference to the commentary on Tues. The bare minimum we should be given is someone who knows out players and the game. Not a dig at Bannerman who I'm sure is doing his best but the club should h
  18. Which stand are you in ? I'll buy you a virtual coffee and a digital pie.
  19. On what basis ? Barry although a great player has no credentials what so ever in a managerial capacity -stints at Elgin & Wick are testimony to this. One loanee even described him as clueless !!!
  20. Yesterday
  21. Yes it would be brilliant for him and us if we could get 6 points from these games!
  22. I appreciate that every penny is a prisoner right now but it now looks like this initiative will provide us with a windfall unexpected and not budgeted for in the region of £100,000 I wonder whether, in the circumstances the club might want to consider donating a small portion of it, perhaps 10%, to maybe be split between a mental health charity in Inverness and a similar organisation in Edinburgh?
  23. interesting and fitting that his first two fixtures are Hearts and Dundee !
