  2. The football authorities, both north and south of the border, have been reminded by their respective governments to limit contact between players especially for goal and victory celebrations. I was interested to hear Derek Mcinnes among others responding by suggesting that it was unfair to expect players to do that as it was 'normal' and 'instinctive' for players for players to want to celebrate together after a goal or securing a win. Well, it's both normal and instictive for me to want to embrace my nearly 90 year old mother when I see her but I have managed to refrain from doing s

  3. Pretty pathetic the slagging our no.22 takes tbh. Brad is a decent spud having chatted with him. Brad is not Van Dijk, if he was he wouldn't be with us. He has twice signed new contracts, so he wants to be here and play for us which deserves credit. His long throw ins can be a handful for defenders, as in Storey's goal this week, Scottish Cup QF against Dundee Utd last year to name but two. So let's have more positive comments towards Brad in 2021 and leave the slagging for c**nty players lol.

  4. Devastating news. Deepest condolences to his family and friends. An integral part of the club since the very beginning. Agree that his passing should be acknowledged at our next match. It should also be marked again, probably by a minute's applause at the next home game when a full cohort of fans are permitted back into the stadium. I am sure that there are very very many who would wish to show appreciation in person for all the work he has done for no personal reward over the last quarter of a century and more.

  7. I’ve just seen Robbos news feature on STV tonight and on the back of this I thought I’d start a thread for positive messages to Robbo, here’s mine; Robbo, I think you are a very good manager and a great match for our club. From my experience, our fans believe you are elevating our club higher than resources permit and in that regard you are adding good value and that makes you one of our best assets. Your approach to youth players is so encouraging and our club feels like more of an Inverness club than it has in a long time. We can’t be there in person at the Caledonian Stadium to give yo

  8. Season hanging by a thread. GAME POSTPONED Should Nicola Sturgeon not shut down all sport in the aftermath of the ill advised and infamous Dubai debacle, then Raith Rovers should host Inverness on Saturday 16th January 2021 @15:00. As it stands, all football below Championship level in Scotland has been put on hold and all Scottish Cup games postponed until after the weekend of January 30/31st. If the Cup games do return to action, an eagerly awaited potential Highland derby could materialise should we first see off Buckie Thistle in a twice postponed tie. Anyway, frozen out i

  9. The arrogance of Celtic in letting the trip go ahead last week defies belief. I agree that playing the game with a weakened side means they have got off lightly, and what confidence can there be that there are not other players who should be isolating given they were all together last week in Dubai? They should have points deducted and given a large fine that can be used to let lower league teams pay for their testing.

  10. Wind your neck in or take another break! No-one called you thick and you didn't report the post. There is nothing for an admin to steer in any direction and if one person disagreeing with you equates to everyone having something against you then you may need to re-evaluate things a little.

  11. I am shocked, saddened and really devastated to hear this news. I have known Ian since the very early days of ICT and a nicer, more dedicated, honest and humble gentleman you were not likely to meet. His stats, reviews and records for ICT have always been the gold standard for fans and directly led to both of his books. He (and Peter) also did wonders as volunteers in the club shop for many years and if you read the release when he was made a life member, you will see what else he did. When people talk about someone having ICT in their blood and being a stalwart of the club they are usually re

I am so chuffed I was able to be at that game - but whenever the restrictions allow, with all vaccines etc, I really look forward to seeing ICT again. (Hopefully in my own seat in North Stand, but would be happy anywhere in Stadium just to be there). Stay safe everyone x

  15. The family have just shared funeral details on Facebook. Thank you for all your kind messages and cards. Ian's funeral will take place in Perth at 2pm on Friday 15 January 2021. Due to current restrictions, it will have to be private, but there will be a live stream. We'll receive the link on Thursday and will share that here for anyone who wishes to attend virtually. If you would like to make a donation in his name, we welcome contributions to Dogs Trust : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ianbroadfoot

  16. I'm really shocked and saddened at this tragic news. On behalf of colleagues on the Supporters Trust Board, I can say it was both a pleasure and a privilege to work with Ian in helping to get his wonderful book to print. Ian had put so much time and effort into the book and I know he was hugely grateful to everyone who kindly contributed to the fundraising campaign. He was also very touched by the numerous messages he had received from folk congratulating him on the finished product. "Milestones and Memories" is a worthy memorial to a man who has made such an important contribution to the

  18. I, for one, don't blame Yogi for taking the opportunity to try to revive his career in Dingwall. I also give him credit for overseeing the greatest times in our history and, in particular, one fantastic day out at Hampden in May 2015. However, I won't overlook the fact that he also oversaw the start of our slide and deliberately picked a public fight with the board but only after signing a lucrative new contract. In my view, the ICT report card for Mr Hughes remains a decidedly mixed one.

  21. With today being the day of Ian Broadfoot's funeral, it is perhaps a day for a bit of reflection. Thinking of Ian today, I picked up my copy of 'Milestones and Memories" and looked back on some of the great days and wonderful people associated with the club. I also had Robbo in mind and I don't think I had really registered before that it is now over 18 years since he first came to the club as Manager. To be here now as Manager so long after first coming here is a testament to what he means to the club and how much of a fit he is for the club. Robbo may not have been here when the club enj

I understand that you miss family, kids, grandkids etc, I don't have kids (some may say that is a good thing lol) but I do work with kids and, right now, I miss the kids at the setting so I totally get you. Finally, I've not been to kind in here sometimes and now I feel even more guilty :'(, I certainly don't want you to resign due to mental health issues. Keep fighting lad, as is the message from government(s), we will get through this together!

  27. The First Minister said today that any actions against Celtic were a matter for the football authorities. It is appropriate that the football authorities should take action here, but why is it solely down to them? In general, people are exempt from staying at home if they are unable to work from home and the exemptions specifically stipulate that training for professional sport is included in that. But the new law also states that travel should be as close to home as possible. Surely nobody believes that the trip to Dubai was essential and therefore they should be facing prosecution.

  28. Having to play with a weakened team is the very least punishment they should receive for their selfish, arrogant, dangerous and ill considered trip. As usual though, when it comes to the Old Firm, the football authorities will almost certainly bottle it.

  34. Second round involves 40 clubs. The 20 first round winners plus 10 clubs from League 1 and 10 clubs from Championship. Any home tie for me against a wee club but if I have to choose it'd be Buckie Thistle...because we like beating sides in green and white hoops in the cup.

  37. The whole issue with Carl was his wage v Harper's wage. I would presume Harpers wage would be significantly less and a similar output on the park. Doesn't make sense to bring him back unless he is guaranteed to displace Harper and be a big improvement. I'd rather let our youngster flourish.

  39. After Peter Lawwell's half hearted and belated apology for Celtic's ill considered trip to Dubai, Neil Lennon has undone any good and lost any goodwill created by his latest outburst suggesting that one of the two most privileged clubs in the land is being discriminated against. A little self reflection and a bit of humility would not go amiss.

  44. I had intended not to bother keeping my spreadsheets of ex ICT scorers up to date in 2020, but suddenly finding myself at home a lot, looking for things to do, I decided to carry on. Unsurprisingly, the level of scoring in 2020 was about 60% down on 2019. Nevertheless, I found 62 players scoring 188 goals amongst them. Once again Nathan Austin came out at the top of the list. I don't include ICT players out on loan in my lists. Nor do I include goals scored in penalty shoot-outs. So, here goes :- 15 goals N Austin (Kelty H) 12 " D Ebbe (The New

  46. I am not a Nationalist either. Boris Johnston, Bill Cash, Jacob Rees- Mogg and their ilk are Nationalists. I am, by contrast, merely someone who believes that Scotland should be a normal, democratic, independent country pooling sovereignty with other nations where appropriate. I have held this view for the best part of half a century when it was perhaps regarded as a marginal and rather quaint notion. Now, as times have evolved, it appears the majority and mainstream view, particularly among the younger generation. As far as the levels are concerned. The Scottish government were advi

I got my copy as a Christmas present, it's a terrific read for someone like me, a Sassenach, with no roots in Inverness or even Scotland, and for whom Caley first came to my attention on the 8th Feb 2000 and whose first live match was 20th October 2013 (v Partick). Reading it, brings home how incredible ICT's journey has been so far! And though I never got to see the likes of Tokely, Wilson, Sheerin and Wyness, let along Hayes, Rooney and (Charlie) Christie... these guys are all set in context, and I can see the overall picture. I must say it stirs the loins somewhat, and brings a tear to the

  49. Slating a manager who has his name in history for bringing the highest level trophy that ICT has ever won and then mocking him for joining a club in a division higher than your own (and probably has more chance of still being there next year than your own) epitomises seething!!!

And before anyone has a go (lol), yes I'm pissed off at losing to part timers, it's utterly, utterly unacceptable!! I praise the players and management when we win so its only right that I criticise when necessary and today is that day! We NEED goalscorers in January, but the clown would know that, as he should know that the defence is a joke.

    • Raith Rovers -V- Inverness CT - Postponed
      Season hanging by a thread.

      Match Postponed due to covid outbreak at Raith Rovers: Saturday’s Scottish Championship match between Raith Rovers and Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Stark’s Park has been postponed after Raith Rovers informed the SPFL that they could not fulfil the fixture.

      It barely seems justified or acceptable that I should be writing about a bunch of guys kicking a bag of wind around a frozen park in the middle of winter, but I suppose we need something to take our minds off the ongoing battle against coronavirus that has brought this and other countries to it's knees. We are not alone in this struggle, it's threatening the very existence of mankind so let's all try and do our bit to get back to some form of normality and do as we are asked. In the darkest days on this planet, world wars saw millions of people asked to go out and save our country by fighting the enemy, lying in muddy trenches, frozen, soaking and terrified, going to foreign lands, being apart from our families and the ones we love. Today, we are being asked to stay inside our own houses and wash our hands with soap and water. It's a small sacrifice, but one that is just as important as the previous battles that have killed millions around the world. I hope we can all help and ease the burdens on our Doctors, nurses, NHS, essential retailers and workers who are keeping the country going. So, over to you and let's beat the enemy you can't see.

      Sad news released by the club today is that Club Historian Ian Broadfoot has passed away at the age of 73 after taking ill around Boxing Day.

      Ian was a wealth of knowledge for us here at Caley Thistle Online as we made our way into the Leagues and his statistics were the basis for our own database. His knwledge of all things ICTFC were the background behing his wonderful book that was published recently, Milestones and Memories.

      Condolences to Ian's family and friends and the wider Caley Jags family. RIP Ian.

    • Arbroath -V- Inverness CT ***GAME OFF***
      We first foot the Smokies on the 2nd of January 2021. It's a New Year, but unfortunately the same old shit as it's a covid restricted game with no fans allowed. The game kicks-off at 3:00pm on Saturday with Arbroath stuck at the foot of the table and Inverness in seventh place. Maybe more appropriate to take a roll of ShitBegone instead of a lump of coal!

    • Inverness CT 1-1 Dunfermline - Report
      What's the Storey, Miles Glory: Inverness fell behind after twenty minutes when some pinball ended with McInroy drilling the ball home from inside the box. Sutherland was unlucky when his header crashed off the bar with the keeper beaten. Glory Glory Miles Storey scored with a stunning left foot shot high past a despairing Fon Williams to level the game with around 25 minutes left and that's how it ended, all square in the final game of 2020, a year we all want to forget. Happy New Year when it comes.
