  1. Hi everyone, I attended my first Caley game last weekend on a complete whim as I was visiting close to the area. My hometown is Blackpool and I support Blackpool (I loved seeing Nathan Shaw score that third goal as a product of our academy) but as life has taken me around a bit I now live in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, not far from Leeds. I also follow Pontefract Collieries home and away because of this. 8th tier of English football. I wanted to join the site to firstly say I really enjoyed the hospitality of your club. We spoke to a few locals around the city before and after the game and they were very welcoming us of foreigners. Secondly, the football was brilliant. Now, I know I may come in to some criticism for this but it was like watching lower league English football but with an immaculate pitch. However that is EXACTLY what I want to see in a football match. Lastly, and my only criticism of your wonderful club would be the home atmosphere. I expected booming when the third goal went in last week but it fell flat. Even at 2-0 up it was very quiet. I’d love you to create more of an atmosphere. Get that drum banging and get singing guys!! It’ll make a massive difference to your results! I’ll be forever keeping my eye out for your results now. Hope you manage to string a few wins together and get up the table. Come on Caley. Cheers

  2. Don't agree with all the negative comments on here I thought the boys did okay especially the first half. I thought ourback three of Mullen, Savage and Carracher did well enough and looked solid its our final third where we are struggling. 3-1 flattered Hibs,the first two goals were a deflections and a mistake. Dorans goal was quality. We need to up the tempo and be more proactive. I agree we need a striker and just a shame Samuel was out injured.

  4. It's pretty clear where this is heading and how this will ultimately impact the club's viability moving forward. Another example of the council's complete indifference to the club which, despite our current paltry crowds, remains the largest community supported organisation in the city. You've got to laugh at the loss of green space argument which seems to be the crux of the matter. I left Inverness 30 odd years ago and in the intervening period the city has probably doubled in size with barely an improvement in community facilities and the loss of massive tracts of green space for housing, retail, etc. Yet this particular scheme has the planning committee's knickers in a twist like no other in living memory. I find this latest U-turn very strange, bordering on the highly dodgy. Councillor Oldham's "barely quorate" comment is bizarre. It either is or isn't, it's akin to suggesting someone's barely pregnant. Absolute ludicrous and clearly a man with an agenda. Alas, another entirely predictable omnishambles which drags the club's name and the city's credibility through the mud.

  6. That was sweet. Never in doubt even after going behind. When I saw the orange strips it took me back to November 2001 when we went behind to a Nacho Novo penalty and won 5-1. Sure the last 20 minutes were nervy but that was all in our heads. A lot of that spell was Rovers knocking it about in their own half looking for a gap. The players looked composed and some of the passing was superb. Hamiltons goal was really sloppy on our part with two newbies in the back three so they will need to work on who is picking up at corners. No failures today and we looked physically strong and made Rovers look a shadow of the side which was flying earlier in the season. The double- barrel Jeremiah looked very impressive apart from his blunder which let Vaughan away to score for 3-2, which made the second half a much less comfortable watch. The other three were solid too. Cammy Kerr, Savage and of course Samuel - Machine #2. What a warrior. On another day Billy might have grabbed a fourth but his touch let him down. A bit risky changing defenders late in the game but hey, it made no difference to the result and we got a chance to see Duffy’s haircut. We have lost 10 games and have probably left too much to do for the playoffs but we should be looking up at Dunfermline, Ayr and Airdrie. At least watching ICT isn’t a chore any longer.

  7. Had we scored three in each half Arbroath could have no complaints, plus the penalty.... I'm not sure why some people bother to say they are fans of a club but prefer to criticise everything about it. Is it a sort of Pie&Bovrilism. It's OK to compliment them from time to time. Trust me, it doesn't hurt. Yes there are glaring issues that need resolved, but constant grind is like listening to a spotty teenage keyboard warrior.

  8. ICTFC is NOT a community organisation, they undertake zero community activity and despite their claims in the most recent rant, they have almost zero fan engagement. They can't even organise a kids Christmas party. I said we were a "community supported organisation", as in which other organisation in Inverness generates the numbers through the door? Which other organisation has generated the level of publicity for the city and visitor spin offs? There were rather a lot of Hibs fans in town last week spending money in bars, restaurants, hotels, etc. Not sure any other organisation in the city can say the same. ICT Community Trust is a seperate, self funded, self staffed and independently operated organisation. It is they who do the community work the club are taking credit for. As per almost every other professional club in Scotland. It's done to facilitate funding which we wouldn't be able to access under the auspices of the club, as I'm sure you're well aware. To say it's wholly separate/unrelated entity from ICTFC entity is disingenuous in the extreme. Likewise with the ICT Women. Given how the club has operated the last few years, it clear that they have taken way more from the community than they have given, and until we know the figures we can't know how much, if anything, might find it's way to good causes. We're only taking the word of people who have shown time and again that their word is worthless. What exactly has the club taken? We were forced into a merger by the INE and have done nothing but raise the profile of the city ever since. It baffles me that people think that football clubs should be allowed to just hoover up and **** away money as they please. Any other business wouldn't last 2 minutes if they operated in this manner. Access road aside, how exactly have we hoovered up public money, please enlighten me. The council planning committee aren't doing much for their image, but given the circumstances I think it's right that this goes to full council. Full council should also be kicking the ass of the planning dept. As someone who has clearly fallen out of love with the club your views on this seem extremely jaundiced. To be crystal clear I'm no fan of the CEO or the general stewardship of the club in recent years but it's my club, I travel all over the country following the team and I would prefer that we don't end up part-time or out of business. I'd rather we didn't have to rely on a Battery Farm planning approval to keep us afloat but if that's what it takes then so be it. Reading your posts it would seem that your game plan is to stand over the corpse of the club telling us you told us it'll all end in tears. This seems a decidedly odd stance to adopt for someone who claims to be a fan of the club - different strokes for different folks, I guess. The shortcomings of the current custodians of the club are evident to all but the happiest of happy clappers. Personally I'll hold my nose and swallow the battery farm medicine until such time as a credible alternative materialises. My comments on the green belt subsist, to use this as grounds for rejection in Inverness, a city which has allowed rampant development on the green belt for the benefit of a small number of wealthy individuals and private companies, with almost zero community benefit, is frankly laughable. It should never have gone to a vote once they realised only 5 were eligible to do so and should have been redirected to full council at that stage. The meeting may have been quorate, but 5 people should never have been considered representative. If the Council can't get their act together to muster then that's their problem. Quorate is quorate, move on. It's as if the planning committee and club are having a competition to see who is the least competent. Not going to argue with you there.

  9. Doran is class. He hasn’t played many minutes this season but he and new loanee Samuel are way ahead of anybody else in the minutes per goal stats. We need him on the pitch looking to shoot on sight and the likes of Billy and Samuel primed to pounce on the loose balls from blocks, saves etc. Dunc has spoken highly of the ever present Gilmour, but I think I’m right in saying he has scored just once and has no assists. For someone in his role it is not good enough. Shaw may not be playing as well as last season but he has as many goals and assists as the rest of the regular midfield put together. Football is about scoring more goals than your opponents. It is not about how many safe passes you can make.

  10. That was a hard watch. Players getting used to each other was probably a factor as was the gusty wind, but in truth, Queens showed more energy and desire and were better organised. The stats say we had 17 shots on goal (which is encouraging) but none of them made the keeper work. I'm not too despondent though. I think we do have the talent to make progress once the team gels and I think the new signings give us options we didn't have before. Savage looks decent at centre back, McAllister looked lively and Pepple looked strong and could be a good target man. Pick of the new signings at this stage would appear to be Samuel. He probably should have score again today but he holds the ball up very well and has a great work rate. At the moment there is a pretty obvious lack of confidence in front of goal, exemplified by two awful efforts by Gilmour towards the end, but with options up front, we need to be more positive going forward. If we do that we will create more and we will score more. We also need the fans to get behind the guys on the pitch more. It means a lot to them and yet for many of our so called support, the most noise they ever make is when they are shouting abuse at their own players. It is a significant reason why the team seems to play so much better away from home. We call ourselves supporters, so let's give a bit support to the team.

  11. Some posters on here here need to get their facts right… so I’m correcting you because you are very wrong! In 1995/96 - by which time the merger had been done and dusted several months previously - Inverness District Council voted to award the club £900,000 from the council budget towards the approach road to the stadium - a road which has now paid for itself many times over by opening up the entire Harbour area. However the Council - note the Council - got itself into the most terrible mess because a group of councillors and officials tried to stop payment, hence putting the entire stadium project in danger. With time running out before IDC went out of existence in favour of Highland Council on 1st April 1996, it looked as if the grant couldn’t physically be paid, making court action apparently unavoidable, until HC CEO Arthur McCourt managed to have the money paid from the Inverness Common Good Fund. The reality here is that Inverness District Council were most definitely the “bad guys” back then when they almost secured the demise of the club because a stadium was an SFL membership condition, and when a solution was eventually found, the spin off for the entire city was enormous. Best to check what really happened when you are intent on stirring

  12. I've no clue who you are, but this is a sentiment I've heard echoed from many long time supporters, and a feeling I've had myself over the past few years. Yet I persist, as some other do, often against my better judgement. The one thing that keeps me going is the people I spend time with while I'm at the game, be it family I take or friends I meet there.

  13. No complaints from me about the result. Ridgers kept us in it in the first half, although I thought we competed well and deserved the 0-0 score line. The shot for the first goal took a wicked deflection or otherwise Ridgers would have had a comfortable save. McAllister lost possession in the build up after doing the hard work in winning the ball. Boyes was at fault for the second whilst we seemed to switch off a bit expecting a flag for the third but the player who picked the ball up was onside. Doran’s goal was a cracker, but far too little far too late. I’m not sure about the defensive substitutions as the defence was coping well on the whole. I can only guess that Chilokoa-Mullen and Savage are not fully match fit yet as both have been subbed in all three matches they’ve started for us. Now we need to focus on our league survival. We dropped a place today with Queens Park beating Dunfermline. After Partick next week, we play the two teams below is and those are games we cannot afford to slip up in. Like others, I do see improvements but we’ve had so many changes and we don’t yet know if the changes are paying off. Kerr looks good at right wing back, the young central defenders all look competent, McAllister seems to have potential, Samuel is a real asset and is hopefully fit soon, with the jury out on Pepple as we’ve not seen much of him. They should all benefit from game time. MacGregor got a few minutes at the end and will hopefully be able to have a positive impact. Samuels was on the bench, and his pace as an impact player will be useful in games. Im not (currently) as despondent as some posters, and calls for the Manager’s head are very premature.

  15. Hard to disagree with Dunc actually. More or less dominated the first half and had a few blocked on the line. Always felt it could come back to bite us. Second half was very poor and we relied heavily on the long punt up to Samuel but we had a few near things when the final pass was poor. Looked like 2 stonewall handball claims to me. Arbroath goal was away down the far end but looked scrappy. Not the most memorable trip ever to Arbroath, will miss it although I hope we are in different divisions next season. Half hour delay due to roadworks between Perth and Dundee - should have paid attention to the satnav. Then another 10 mins delay before Arbroath. Steak and black pudding pie 10/10. Plus Mrs Mantis and I have just scoffed two of the biggest smokies ever seen .

  16. Rather than complain about the officials, we need to learn lessons from last night. The 2nd disallowed goal was obviously a shocker, but the 1st was marginal (if it actually was off), while the officials did well to allow the Pars' goal which was actually onside although at first glance it looked well off. A lesson here is that you play to the whistle. The Partick defender looked like an absolute plonker standing there with his arm raised when he should have been putting pressure on Todd who was give plenty of time to sweetly chip the ball over the keeper. Partick may not have had the rub of the green last night, but they weren't robbed. In the 2nd half, Dunfermline were much the better side and deserved to win. Dunfermline have under-performed this season but it looks as though they might be coming into a bit of form. On that performance, we will do well to take anything out of the game on Tuesday. It puts even more pressure on us to get a win today and, of course, it makes it even more important for Arbroath to do the same. There is no easy game in this league and we need 100% commitment till the final whistle in every game. What with all the off field distractions it is more important than ever that the fans get behind the team, especially when things are not going well in the game.

  17. Nah. He's our version of the 6 Million Dollar Man. They have rebuilt him. Not sure if he's got 90 minutes in him, but a first 45, with half time break, could still see him contributing for the first 60 mins of a game. I'd rather have that, with a chance of us getting our nose in front, than bringing him on cold at the end when we're chasing a game. It's got to be worth a go, as it can't get much worse than at present.

  18. I think Doran would do well for us in a number 10 role. He has shown time and again his ability to score from distance, and he and Billy have enough time together to inject a bit of much needed creativity in the final third.

  22. Citing poor performances and loosing games as a reason for not returning is (in my opinion) what we hear from OF fans. However I do agree that the entertainment is dropping due to our playing style this is directly linked to the quality of players we have which is all finance driven - through through dropping numbers of fans and therefore lower revenues this will continue in a decreasing spiral unfortunately. The biggest issue is that given other forms of similar entertainment for the price point of football, the experience as a fan is poor. This isnt unique to ICTFC but nothing is or has changed for decades - yet unlike history where there wasnt the vast spread of leisure activities on offer clubs could be complacent , relying on loyalty - this is no longer the case. Its a whole new off topic thread and discussion but attending football is a habit not pleasure.

  23. He did well today. Rather than turning back and playing a backward pass, he wanted to take his man on and had the beating of him. It was good to see. He also was in a brilliant position to make it 4-2 but Pepple didn’t spot him and the chance was gone. Kerr on the other flank also had a good game, whilst Shaw was playing wide today and had a few decent runs and crosses. We should have won, we didn’t, but I came away heartened by what I saw. I hope we appeal Anderson’s red card but if we don’t have him next week, MacGregor should get a start.

  24. There will doubtless be a few other old buffers on here who will remember the ghastly, clusterboorach that the Council got itself into on a previous occasion when it was involved in a decision that had existential implications for Caley Thistle - namely the £900K grant towards the stadium road in 1995-96. There’s no need to detail the Town Hall obstructiveness,, QCs’ opinions, scandalous rearguard action by Council officials and nitpicking about Dave Stewart’s use of the word “payable” in a motion to the Council that eventually saw IDC go out of existence under an ignominious cloud before the money was paid from the Common Good Fund… but it was desperate stuff. Unfortunately, we now already have a bid to contest a quorate planning decision - which the club manager yesterday, deploying delightful metaphor, eloquently described as trying to keep replaying the game until they get the result they want - and that rearguard action already looks ominous. But what really worries me is that if we thought that the Council back in the 90s was bad…. the current local governance of Inverness is a whole lot worse. History is making me very uneasy about this one.

  26. Pursuing other sources of income is fine, it's this thing with whoring out the clubs name and reputation to the highest bidder and greedy projects that's unacceptable. They could have rented the stadium to an experienced concert operator and taken a nice wee rental income every year. Instead they go all Johnny Big Baws, attach the club name to an unaffiliated (yeah right!) company, **** it up, and are now unlikely to see any promoter come near us in future. Not to mention the reputational damage and money lost by local companies. If the battery storage was such a winner, then it could have been done by ILI without need to attach the club name and they then make a major donation, or do a big sponsorship deal to pass on the proceeds. The developers knew it would need the 'community benefit' leverage to have any chance, so the club are all over it like a cheap suit and the clubs name, reputation and.possibly even it's existence, are again on the line. Meanwhile, the club have totally taken the eye off the ball with fan engagement, matchday experience, and the product on the park. There's **** all for fans to be proud of when it comes to Caley Thistle at the moment.

  27. Highland Council covering themselves in glory yet again. If I understand it correctly certain people were asked to recuse themselves due to potentially having a conflict of interest (e.g. having been to a match in the home end). The council are now calling it in due to not enough inverness people voting. Pretty shambolic and bordering on shady. Regardless, I'm utterly fed up of our chairman and CEO and these projects. I wish they would just concentrate on the nuts and bolts of running a football club rather than than these expensive and time consuming schemes. The concert company was a fiasco and this is potentially heading the same way.

  29. The inevitable Ferguson witch-hunt gathers pace. This forum must be a leader in the propensity of whingers and armchair manager assassins. Has Ferguson been afforded any cash to splash or is he part of the cull to save money ? Have we ever seen such changes mid season and who is at fault there ? Do you think that Ferguson made that decision on his own or perhaps maybe the decisions were made for him ? Is Ferguson being set up as the Messiah or the fall guy - and who would do that ? Fraid the off field element of our club has become a real self preservation society - and finally (The Rock has come back to Inverness) did anyone actually think that we would beat Hibs

  33. Many thanks for the feedback Robert. It sounds as though granting of the planning permission would be a significant one off boost to the club, but refusal would be a disaster. I wonder if the in-between scenario of an appeal against whatever the decision might be was discussed? Appeals processes can be rather drawn out and this would leave the club needing to find further ways of keeping the current set-up going for what could be a fairly uncertain time frame. It is positive that the Chairman was prepared to come to the meeting to talk about this. It is also positive that Scott Young has formally been appointed SLO and has expressed a willingness to engage with the Supporters Trust moving forward. However, this is just a very small step in what will be a long journey. We know and the club knows that the SLO should not be a Director of the club. We also know there are a host of issues which the club should be dealing with and are not. We need to see a massive change in attitude from the club in the way it relates to the fan base. Coming along to a few meetings to update the fans on a few issues simply doesn't cut it. The outcome of the planning application will be crucial is shaping the the strategy and priorities for the club for the next few years. Regardless of which way the planning decision goes, the club should be looking to involve the fans in developing future plans. The fans are the lifeblood of the club and if the club had engaged more constructively with them in the last several years, the club might not be in quite the precarious position it now finds itself in.

  34. A big thank you for everyone who came along to yesterday's meeting in the Caley Club, and particular thanks to Board Member George Moodie who led the Q&A Session. Thanks also to Ross Morrison, who joined for the first hour, and to Scott Young, who was present for the full meeting. It is encouraging to see the Chairman and Board wishing to engage with the Supporters Trust and with fans in general. A full update will appear on the Supporters Trust website in due course, but some highlights from the discussion. Ross Morrison provided an update on the Battery Park, and the implications for the club. The planning decision will be made by the Council at Wednesday's South Area Planning Committee. The club has overcome three of the four grounds for refusal, with the loss of open space being the remaining issue. With the work that has been put in since the previous Planning Meeting, Ross is confident that the application will be approved. If it is, the club will quickly receive a seven figure sum which will stabilise finances, allow debt to be cleared, and allow investment to start in areas which will secure future income streams for the club. The club will not get an ongoing income stream from the Battery Park. Areas which may see investment include the North Car Park. However, the position is very bleak if the application is refused. An appeal will be submitted, but the delay will cause significant cash flow issues for the club, as it cannot continue to sustain the level of losses that have been prevalent in recent years. This will have a serious negative impact as the club will not be able to support all its current activities. Fans received an update on the activities of the Community Trust, and in particular the good progress that has been made on the Sports Hub. The future progress on this is one of many issues which are dependent on the planning decision on Wednesday. Scott Young advised that, at the club's Board Meeting on Friday, he was confirmed as the Supporters Liaison Officer. Scott indicated his commitment to making this role work, and to ensuring that the club responds to contact from fans and takes action where it is required. The Supporters Trust has been pushing for the club to make the SLO work properly, and this is a welcome step forward. We look forward to working closely with Scott to ensure that fans' issues are understood and addressed. Scott advised that there are 1459 season tickets, and a further 50 half season tickets were sold. The club intends to be more proactive when it comes to season ticket renewals this year. The meeting between the Trusts Disability Group and the club remains outstanding, but a date should be fixed soon. Options for Hospitality Days that are aimed at fans rather than businesses are being explored. The club recognises that the attractiveness of player sponsorship has reduced, and intends to address this for the coming season. It has been great to see some new members join the Trust in recent weeks: welcome to you all! The Trust exists to represent fans of the club, and to be a bridge between the club and its supporters. Membership is only £5 (£1 for under 16s) and joining is easy. Just follow this link: https://www.ictsupporterstrust.org/join-us If anyone has any comments for the Supporters Trust, we can be contacted through this link: https://www.ictsupporterstrust.org/contact or through the Trust Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ICTSupportersTrust Thank you again for everyone who attended yesterday's meeting. Robert Andrew (please note that the above is my personal summary of the key issues and not a formal Trust report on the meeting).

  35. Ridgers seems to be slower off his line and increasingly reluctant to come for balls recently, so that may have been a good shout by Devine. I await the highlights to see. Important 3 points today. We continue to be able to turn it on against the teams above us and I wonder if that's because they come at us more and we know how to exploit that? (This is why I think we have more than half a chance against Hibs) Teams around us seem more content to sit in a bit more and let us pass the ball around in front of them where we're not creating any threat, and we can't break that down. Hopefully the new players give us options to change that. Next week will be the test.

  47. Agreed, although Ross Morrison was praising SG re the buttery farm (prefer my butteries warm) issue, so SG is safe sitting on his throne in his ivory tower. SG may have done good re that, but the way he treats the fans means he 'has hit the target, but misses the point' of our club.

  50. Looking at the table, we need to improve our home form. We have 9 points from 10 home games: only Arbroath have taken fewer. Conversely we have 15 points from 12 away games: only Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Partick Thistle have taken more. Our next two league games are at home against Queens Park and Partick Thistle so it’s time to start winning at home.

    • Arbroath -V- Inverness CT - Preview
      We head to Arbroath on Saturday, the scene of Big Dunc's first game in charge of the Caley Jags, where we earned our first win of the season in our seventh Championship game and his tenure at the Caley Jags began with only one point on the board prior to this game. We now sit on twenty-five points, but still perilously close to the relegation zone, unable to put a consistent run together to climb the table like others have done (Morton the prime example). Max Anderson is suspened and something like five definite outs and another five struggling with knocks.  Nothing new there then!

    • Inverness CT 3-3 Partick Thistle - Report
      Cammy Kerr opened the scoring half an hour in to open his own account at Inverness, a welcome goal for the home fans, albeit at the South Stand end of the stadium. Be patient I hear you say and we were rewarded with a North Stand goal from Remi Savage ten minutes after the interval. Another ten minutes later and Fitzpatrick shot in from twelve yards to throw Partick a lifeline. Brian Graham converted a penalty but Nathan Shaw restored our advantage two minutes later. Unfortunately, the man we love to hate, Brian Graham, slammed in a volley after some head tennis to end the scoring and Max Anderson saw red in time added on. Meh, some game but a disappointing outcome despite the goals at the home end.

    • Inverness CT -V- Partick Thistle - Preview
      Home team is normally the best indicator in these fixtures. We suffered a couple of heavy away defeats a year or two ago but other than that most of these fixtures have been close affairs and usually favour the home side. Both games this season ended all square, although it's fair to say that Inverness shaded the play but our lack of penetration in the final third is a continuing problem.

    • Inverness CT 1-3 Hibernian - Sc Cup - Report
      Scottish Cup. Itr's not for everyone: Having matched Hibs for almost an hour a massive deflection enabled Maolida to open the scoring. Slack defensive play set Martin Boyle on his way to double Hibs advantage before a late goal set up by Boyle saw Youan tap in. Game over but Aaron Doran notched an injury time consolation for Inverness.

    • Inverness CT -V- Hibernian - Preview - Sc Cup
      Hibs have won the Scottish Cup three times, the last one being the year after Inverness beat Falkirk 2-1 to lift the trophy in 2015, Hibs first win came in 1887 when they beat Dumbarton 2-1 followed by 1-0 victory over Celtic in 1902. Hibs have been runners-up 10 times with Inverness losing out once.
      We will need to wait for Duncan Ferguson to announce his plans. We barely know half the squad; not sure if Duncan does either since the transfer window shut. A major worry is on loan striker Alex Samuel who has broken his hand and faces the possibility of being out for a few weeks. Doctors are looking to see if he can get away with a lighter cast, but that's in the balance right now. Luis Longstaff is out after twisting a knee in training.
