  1. Short career, nearer the end than the beginning. Chance of much higher pay. Not from the area so no particular heart strings pulling ... who wouldn't make the move in his shoes or in any walk of life for that matter? If we had turned on Shinnie when he had signed a "pre-contract", might we have still won the Cup? I really hope the fans "do a Graeme Shinnie" and cheer him on for the rest of his time with us because he has made vital contributions/goals right up to this point (latest being the goal v County) ... and hopefully he has future contributions yet to make ... that could be the dif

  2. I class anyone that is a first team player contributing to the most successful period (or at least at the highest level) the club has experienced to date deserves some credence within the club. Perhaps its the wrong expression to use. However, they were both integral along with others to that success. Fans are loyal (well mostly), players not so much. They continually want to progress their ability and make as much money as possible in a career than can nosedive at any moment. Tansey leaving and coming back, is not a problem in my eyes. Tansey being courted by a bigger club, is reco

  3. He has improved drastically in recent games by playing a bit further forward. I think dropping him due to this is a bit old fashioned. This pre-contract era has been on the go for a while. Both Tansey and Meekings have been clear for a while they were not interested in signing new deals. This is good for the club to have clarity, both players have been good servants and deserve respect until their contract runs out. As long as Tansey gives his all in training and games he will start. If this standard/effort drops, then he shall be dropped. The same goes for any player in the squad.

  4. I think its a bit of a catch 22 situation really. You get transfer fees when players are signed up on longer contracts but longer contracts tend to cost more and risk you being left paying a player who has not performed. A small club like ours simply can't afford the risk of longer term contracts although I think it tries to do the best it can within the resources available. With regard to Tansey, he has benefited from being here and we have benefited from having him here. He's been a great player for us and I wish him well in his future career (except when playing against us, of cours

  5. We should in no way blame players. Their careers are partly regulated by the transfer window and other restrictions. It is not an easy life and come the season end many will be without clubs for months or even forever again. It is a very short career and realistically we should wish Greg well and trust like everyone else they seek to get at least a point at Pittodrie.

  6. I don't think "servant" is ever an appropriate wording for a professional footballer these days. They are highly paid to do something they love, and get loads of time off into the bargain. It's hardly servitude! Good employee, if anything.

  7. I don't see it as a big call at all, despite the conflict of interest. He will undoubtedly want ICT, his teammates and friends, to stay up, plus he has no desire himself to be part of a failed, relegated team.

  8. Im probably his biggest fan, but am I the only one who thinks Greg Tansey is well overdue being dropped? He hasn't been himself since the Aberdeen saga. Consistently gives the ball away, offers very little protection to the back four, set pieces are consistently poorer, and just lets games pass him by. He used to be the anchor who everything we did flowed through - now he hardly looks for the ball! I find it particularly peculiar as personally I rate Liam Polworth as our top prospect - shifting him out wide to accommodate an ineffectual Tansey seems bizarre, especially when it means dropp

  10. how? (why?) if you could buy a house for 100k or wait 6 months and get that house for free...what would YOU do? It makes good business sense. The accounts situation at ICTFC are of absolutely no concern to anyone at AFC. In Aberdeen Caley Thistle's defence, they did make an attempt to buy that house some time ago, the house wasn't for sale. Not their fault. The keys for that house have been put in the bowl...they picked them up. No ill feelings towards Aberdeen or Mr Tansey. Both have made sound business/career choices. Anyone in their respective positions would make th

  12. I'm sure the players will be fine, they are professionals. Whatever happens at the end of this season, stay up or go down, we have a huge rebuilding job to come. The core of the side for the past few seasons have either left or lost form. Tansey has left, Meekings will probably join him and Warren and Draper's performance levels have dropped (Warren's more than Draper's). We need to replace them with solid, reliable starters to build our team around. The signings we have made this season do not fill me with confidence that we can do this. None of the signings we've made have esta

  14. Some interesting points being made on Twitter regarding this kind of comment. Does a good servant jump ship twice having failed to do so another time? I'm not so sure.

  16. How can we think that the Dons will continue to be interested in a player who can so easily be depressed, or gone off the boil through disappointment or feel aggrieved at what he may feel is his divine right to a transfer on demand to better his career, or even just plain boredom or such, just baffles me. The owners of Aberdeen F.C. are ambitious (because they have invested tons of money in their new stadium for one thing) and need players who will constantly have a forward-looking and positive attitude to their game and who will give their all for the club. Otherwise, Jimmy, it's....T

  17. Having witnessed an excellent performance at Tynecastle we have not pushed on. At Tynecastle we hade a new central back pairing and Polworth & Cole played with great energy (along with the rest of the team) who pressed Hearts for 90 mins to get a good result. Anier came on and spent most of his time offside or losing the ball and was no better against Ross County. Richie has bottled dropping a centre back, personally I think Laing is first choice so who should be dropped Warren or McCart? Against County we had NO pace (King!!!) in the team and I don't think 5 at the back mad

  18. We've only lost once at home to Killie in the league in something like ten years however I don't have much confidence in us securing three points on Saturday. Suspect a 1 - 1 draw is a likely outcome but this doesn't do us any favours whatsoever. We need to start winning games now. We have looked a wee bit better at the back in recent weeks but I think that's more been down to Draper being returned to a deeper midfield position in place of Vigurs and it has also seen Tansey come onto a much better game as well. I don't feel like we've offered to much going forward with a lot of punts up t

  19. Not really bothered by his departure. I have never rated him. He is anonymous in far too many games for my liking. Looking forward to someone else coming in, maybe someone with a bit of fight in them. I think of all the ICT players who have gone to Inverness XI (Aberdire), he is by far the poorest player they have signed

      The winner for this season voted for by you is Shane Sutherland.

      Shane began well at the start of the season and picked up points throughout the season coming on to his best form in March, April and the start of May before being injured in the away game at Arbroath.  A well deserved winner and hopefully he will make a good recovery from the serious injury picked up at Gayfield. However, early indications are that Shane will be out long term. Congratulations on winning this trophy which was held for the last two seasons by runner up David Carson and a speedy recovery Shane.

    • St Johnstone 4-0 Inverness CT - Premiership Play Off Final 2nd leg
      Inverness Stay Put: It was a winner takes all game tonight after a dramatic 2-2 draw at the Caledonian Stadium on Friday night. Inverness were bolstered by the return of Danny Devine and Wallace Duffy to the squad after their harsh dismissals at Arbroath. A big following went down to Perth, alas after a tremendous first half where we created the better opportunities, it was all undone within a minute of the restart by substitute Stevie May. A second goal killed any lingering hopes from a deflected MacPherson shot. The final two goals from Hendry & Rooney mattered not when the game was being chased and the dream ended, but the memory lives on. Fantastic endeavour from the Caley Jags and a magnificent following on the night.

    • St Johnstone -V- Inverness CT - Play off final 2nd leg
      One Game Shootout: Well well, after the drama of Friday night, it all comes down to this game in a winner takes all final. It's another blank canvas after a 2-2 draw at the Caledonian Stadium for the final game at McDiarmid Park Perth on Monday night at 7:45pm. We can thank Reece McAlear for that after his two stunning second half goals cancelled out two first half goals for the Perth side. We should have Danny Devine and Wallace Duffy free from suspension after the Willie Collum debacle. (I notice he was also rubbish in the Showpiece Scottish Cup Final as well. Seriously useless. Maybe VAR will make our refs pull their socks up). Unfortunately, Nick Walsh is allegedly the man in the middle on Monday. That also gives me the fear more than St Johnstone.

    • What a turnaround: An understrength Inverness struggled badly against a solid St Johnstone who took a two goal lead into the interval. Shaun Rooney and Melker Hallberg put the Saints in the driving seat. However, step forward Reece McAlear and take a massive bow. A thumping strike off the underside of the bar and an exquisite curling free kick levelled matters and gives us something to play for in the return leg at Perth.

    • Inverness CT -V- St Johnstone - Premiership Play-Off
      Play Off Final 1st Leg: It's the second time we have faced St Johnstone in a crucial promotion encounter at the Caledonian Stadium. This game kicks off on Friday night on 20th May at 7:45pm. The last crucial one was back in 2004. It was Saturday 15th of May when Inverness beat St Johnstone 3-1 to top the League on the final day of the season. It took a bit more wrangling to finally clinch promotion after a legal battle, but we got there.
