  1. We are underdogs on Saturday but have a good cup pedigree so we have every chance. Lets hope we get a decent home support, perhaps even some vocal support from the YT, and the team rises to the occasion. Reading the piece on Livingston on the BBC Sport website, they are strong at home but struggle a bit away from home. That should give us confidence that we can compete with them and get a result. If Welsh is fit enough to start, that bolsters our midfield and gives support to whatever our defence ends up being. Hopefully Rooney and McHattie both make it, but if we need to tur

  2. The main stand side appears to be sorted but the side opposite was not looking great.

  3. The more gaelic speakers the better as the players will not understand all the abuse shouted at them - I can just see Brad McKay smiling and waving back to the group of fans chanting - "Tha thu diùid agus tha fios agad gu bheil thu".

  4. I remember when I used to teach, you always got people asking "is this in the exam?" No? "Then why are we doing it?" You must have been one of them ? Every day is a school day. If you're not interested in the meaning of the place names all around you, and the history/culture of your country, I can't help you. It's a minor miracle that the language survives at all considering the efforts to stamp it out in the 18th century. Just as an aside, BBC Alba does a magnificent job on its other programmes, e.g. Eorpa and other documentaries. It shows what a small channel can do on what is prob

  5. In Wales they make announcements in Welsh then English. Swansea are very pro-welsh language. Cardiff also do the same. Wrexham will do Welsh only if it is a game between two welsh sides. It's important stuff, the language must be preserved and by adding it into everyday life - it stays alive!

  6. Livi won't need to bother watching us as we haven't changed our style of play since last season.

  7. Tin pot defence to concede 4 or 5 and dykes to cigar the while game? Sorry but on current form and personel given the departures and injuries coupled with our lack of goals at the other end anything other than a drubbing will be a good result.

  8. If it gets people through the door then why not!? If it gets us on BBC ALBA a bit more then why not!? Any promotion is good promotion. We can't afford to lose even one person from our meager crowds. I'm a Gaelic speaker, so is my dad, and so was my Grandfather. My dad hasn't been to a game in a few years but has said he will go. Now if that happens a handful more times then the "gimmick" pays for itself several fold. As another example, the Dungwall lot use English for their chosen language - Now half of them can't even string a sentence together in any language but they still use it!

  9. Five wins on the trot for Livi going into this game so you'd imagine they will be feeling confident although it doesn't look like they've got a good record on grass pitches. The significant majority of their wins have come at home. The last time they won away on a grass surface was back in August against Ross County.

  10. In a sense, I somewhat agree. No point doing it when A) They understand English well enough, and B) There's nobody that it would even benefit. Like the gaelic announcements. The only time announcements in another language would somewhat make sense, is if (by against all the odds) we end up playing in Europe against a team from a country that isn't fluent or majority in English. Otherwise, it's completely pointless, never heard anyone speaking fluent Gaelic bar once at Inverness Athletic earlier this year, but he still spoke English, and more than likely, his children who were also speaki

  11. That's how wer gonna boost crowds is it speak polish and stand outside the fish factory dishing out free tickets like confetti! Besides the point the Poles are mad for the boxing specially after a few voddies don't think even our sweetie rustling away day ultras will be able to tackle them if they decide they've seen enough of Big J shooting for the stars

  16. So why the hell didn't we draft someone in to help cover. They are considering using todorov in defence for Saturday. I appreciate we needed the money but FFS.

  17. Out of a population of 5 million in Scotland there is around 30000 Gaelic speakers. Pointless waste of resources.

    • Inverness CT 2-2 Ayr United - Report
      Season ends in stalemate: Inverness opened the scoring early through Daniel Mackay in the sixth minute. We were unable to build on that and Ayr levelled before the break when Aaron Muirhead converted a penalty after Baird went down in the box. Level at the break but Sean Welsh bagged a penalty two minutes into the second half only for United to level again through Josh Todd. No further scoring but results elsewhere meant that Ayr were safe and Dundee jumped above Raith Rovers to finish second.

    • Football Unites against discrimination
      Governing and league bodies across both the men’s and women’s games join forces with clubs to cease activity on social media from 15:00 BST on Friday 30 April to 23:59 BST on Monday 3 May. Not sure if this was aimed at supporter sites and their social media channels, but in the interests of solidarity and because we wholeheartedly support this initiative, we will also cease any and all social media posts from tomorrow until Tuesday. The forum will operate as normal, we just wont be promoting anything to our FB/Twitter etc.

    • Inverness CT -V- Ayr United - Preview
      For us, it's the final game of the season as we have missed out on the promotion play-offs despite a tremendous last six weeks which saw us go on a six game winning run including a derby Scottish Cup win over Ross County. Unfortunately we left ourselves an uphill task after the first two thirds of our season was decimated by injuries, covid and inclement weather. Ayr United head North with Championship survival high on their agenda as they look to avoid the relegation play-offs with Arbroath and Morton the other contenders. The game is a 19:45 kick-off on Friday night.

    • Hearts 3-0 Inverness CT - Report
      Our season looked over inside ten minutes after Mackay-Steven ran at the defence before drilling a low shot into the bottom corner as the defenders backed off. McEneff doubled the lead with the aid of a deflection in the ninth minute to nestle the ball in the bottom corner again. Mackay-Steven notched his second as he poked his leg in between Deas and Ridgers to kill the game with half an hour gone. The second half was an anti-climax for both sides with no further scoring, and with results elsewhere our challenge has come to an end.

    • Hearts -V- Inverness CT - Preview

      After the disappointing draw with Dundee in midweek, our destiny is in the hands of others. All we can do is gather points and hope that others can lend a helping hand by taking points of Dunfermline and Dundee as we visit Tynecastle to take on Champions Hearts. All games kick-off at 3:00pm on Saturday, it's a massive day of football in the Championship.
