    Inverness CT -V- Queens Park - Sc Cup 4th Rnd

     

    Weather Permitting...

     

    The Spiders will be back a week and a bit on from the no scoring Championship draw at the Caledonian Stadium. Not too much has changed within either camp although plenty has changed weather wise. There had been nearly a foot of snow dumped across the area since Monday into Tuesday over a week ago. That caused the original tie to be called off. Conditions have improved since then but there is a strong wind warning in force from this Tuesday night into Wednesday. The prize for the winner is an away tie at Livingston. The League game was as entertaining a goalless encounter as you will see with plenty of chances and big saves at both ends. However, this week it's Scottish Cup action. It's nearly eight years since the Caley Jags lifted the trophy. Spare a thought for Spiders fans, their last success in this competition was 1893, although they have won it 10 times: 

    1874, 1875, 1876, 1880, 1881, 1882, 1884, 1886, 1890, 1893.

    Mind you, plenty has changed over the last 150 years, although there was a lot of scurrilous goings on back in the day including Vale of Leven refusing to turn up for the final in 1884. Even the 1993 final had controversy surrounding it. I wonder why they never told anyone until half the game had been played. :whistle: :argue02:

    Final

    Celtic 1 – 0 Queen's Park

    Attendance: 30,000
    Referee: R. F. Harrison

    Match declared void due to frozen pitch (decided pre-match after inspection, but not announced to spectators until the second half) :shrug:What, no undersoil heating?

    Attendance: 15,000
    Referee: R. F. Harrison

    The winning goal was believed by some observers not to have fully entered the goal before being cleared, and Celtic protested but the score stood. Although their use would not have resolved that particular incident, this controversy and debate led to goal nets being introduced in the latter stages of the Scottish Cup from then on. 

    Same old Celtic, always greeting :whistle:

    I'm told Mantis and Gringo were at that replay. Anyway, nostalgia is great, but let's get back to the future>>>

    Last Time Out

    Inverness came from behind twice to earn a point at Raith Rovers. Not a great spectacle in the first half where Rovers went ahead when a Vaughan shot from near thirty yards caught out Ridgers who seemed to be wrong footed as the ball bounced into the net. A tidy move saw Billy Mckay feed Jay Henderson to rifle the ball home from outside the corner of the six yard box just after the interval. Rovers went ahead again when Aidan Connolly shot round Ridgers into the bottom of the net for another seemingly loose strike but a tremendous early run and head glance saw Mckay level the game from a Sean Welsh free kick.

     

    Queens Park got a sharp lesson at Dundee as the hosts scored three goals in a twenty minute period in the second half to run away with the points. Interestingly enough, only since Euan Henderson entered the game. :moon02:

    The recent Championship draw was an entertaining affair with chances aplenty. More of the same would make for an entertaining game, if we could just add some goals to that all will be well. 

    Latest Team News 2023

    Billy Dodds has seen Nathan Shaw, Sean Welsh and Zak Delaney, return in recent weeks. However we have lost Max Ram for around a month. Scott Allardice and Cammy Harper returned to the squad at Raith Rovers on Saturday with Allardice getting nearly half an hour and Harper made his 100th appearance in a final  ten minute cameo at the end. Austin Samuels still nowhere to be seen as the plot thickens.

    The Spiders may well be along the same lines as their Dundee defeat and Manager Owen Coyle has added a late arrival as the transfer deadline window drew to a close. He has secured the loan of Euan Henderson the 22 year old attacking left winger from Hearts who joined Queens on 27th January and came off the bench in the 3-0 defeat at Dens Park. It was 0-0 at the time...

    Not much news coming from SFA re this reg.issue.

    I can imagine that Leanne Dempster will any number of QC 's on the case attempting  to avoid getting kicked out.

    Do people really beleive the atmosphere in the North Stand is any better than the Main Stand. I sit in the Main Stand and there is barely any noise comes from the North Stand. Not that the Main Stand is any better mind you. 

    There is a lot wrong with the club at the moment but sometimes it seems people are looking for ways to make things even more negative. The club must of thought they would save money on stewarding and catering and so on. If I was told the Main Stand was to be shut as a one off and had to move to the North Stand I would do it. I would do it because I'd still want to watch and support the team. I just find it strange there has been so much made of the decision.

    Hard to disagree with this. I get that people will have wanted to sit in their normal seats in the NS but any atmosphere there died with S94 moved to the West Stand.

    I can't decide if this is good news or bad. If we get more injuries and lose, obvs not great...it's match one would call a 'free hit' and since we weren't due to play next week, a competitive game might be good [not sure if playing on their 3G pitch is great for tender limbs?].....of course if we win tomorrow, beat Livi next week with Samuels scoring on a surprise return, and win the following match against the Accies everything will feel great! 🤪  Surely that wont happen? and yes I am certifiable!

    Time to move S94 back into the NS and abandon the idea of covering the WS. The club don't want that to happen anyway, given the obstacles they keep bringing up.

    Not like the amazing atmosphere they're creating over there is having any positive impact on the pitch either!!

    I sit in the main stand, but chose not to attend due to the pricing 🤷‍♂️

    As I said the NS closure was final nail that made us decide to give it a miss. 

     

    Think DD post above explains why folk like sitting in their own seat with same folk around them. I haven't mentioned atmosphere at all. Think someone already mentioned how club could have opened it without extra turnstiles/catering etc.

    ICTFC Scottish Cup hall of fame

    Add the referee who missed Meekings’ hand ball in the semi too.

    Regarding Tuesday’s attendance, I think the main factor in the low crowd was the £20 admission fee. £10 would probably have generated the same revenue with a much noisier crowd and overcome the need for the North Stand closure.

    Maybe our good fortune in getting through to the next round is the bit of luck we need to kick start our season. We will know soon enough. Morton tomorrow, a double header against Hamilton then Dundee away this month will make or break our season. Ideally we win our home games and, at worst, avoid defeats in the away games.

    Interesting. Did we end up at £20 due to Queens Park not agreeing or did we simply not consider reducing the price?

    I'm sure we'll find out in the next of the club's regular communications 👍

    Not that it really matters, but what is the official result of this cup tie? We do not appear to have been awarded a 3-0 win, so is the game nul and void or does the 0-2 result stand? The SFA site shows 0-2 but I’m not sure how much you can read into that.

    Regardless of the score we are through but looking at the results today I can't see us in with any chance next week but I will be keeping my fingers crossed!
