  1. 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

  2. I wouldn't mind having a 3 week break at the moment and then playing the games later on if it's safe to do so. Give everyone a break and let the NHS and GOVT do what needs to be done to help those needing help.

  3. If it is correct that we are the team that has started this, I support the stance being taken. Our players have journeys of up to 5 hours after games without being able to shower. That is not good for physical or mental wellbeing. There are part time clubs in our league, so their players are doing day jobs out with their club bubbles. We have been relatively lucky here with lower infection rates but they are now pretty high, and the players, officials and their families are at higher risk when travelling to areas where rates are even higher. With the lower leagues on hold,

  5. Life is very difficult working in any job just now and football is no exception. I hope Robbo gets all the support he needs like he is giving to the players just now in these challenging times. I along with all the ICT supporters will be fully behind him giving all the support he needs. He always has the teams interests at heart when he speaks and that's not just our team he genuinely cares about all footballers! Keep going Robbo we are fully behind you.

  6. We are very fortunate to be joined by ICT's all time leading scorer Dennis Wyness next week for an exclusive interview! If you have a question for Dennis you want to ask leave it here and we will do our best to ask as many as we possibly can.

  7. They are dangerous in that they set a bad example to the rest of us. Well, not us, of course, but to others! The players train together, share a dressing room, and there is very close contact with other players during a game. The additional risk to them by a few huddles in a game - very few, if you don't score much! - is minimal. And I'm afraid that looking for footballers as a whole - there are exceptions - to set a good example to society is a lost cause.

  8. We are probably in a more unique situation where the majority of players have moved up here from other areas of the country and are relatively in isolation from their families and friends. The players are in a demographic that is very low risk. They are now in a position of getting tested weekly which is an extra layer of protection. There has been no evidence of cross contamination from playing other teams. Therefore the travelling across the country and bringing back the virus isn't particularly high risk. The shower thing is exaggerated I think. Towel down, change of c

  9. Are they expected to answer this without knowing what happens next eg season delayed or abandoned, season void, current places apply or is it points per game, no play offs etc?

  10. Would have thought that there is more money (TV rights etc) involved in the Scottish Cup than in the Championship, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Championship was abandoned. And then they wouldn't be able to promote anyone, so no one would be relegated from the Premiership.

  11. Hmm, what to watch tomorrow then? C(o)unty v Dons looks interesting. Or not. Think I’ll go for “not”.

  12. I don't think that the Championship should be suspended. It may be harsh, we are living in strange and difficult times but if a club has an outbreak it is almost certainly because someone has breached the rules somewhere. In these circumstances, if the club have at least 14 players Covid free then they should be obliged to play. If not, the match should be forfeited 3-0 to the opposition. That way, the league can be played out and there is a huge additional incentive for players and other staff to rigorously adhere to the rules which will also have a general knock on effect to t

  13. There's going to have to be a rethink on keeping Championship games going, and probably best to just have a circuit break for all sports - tm4tj has really put it into perspective in the opening post. Paul Lambert was on Look East news at lunchtime as he's just returned to work after being off for 4 weeks after catching the virus. He's still not fully recovered and has added his voice to those calling for a halt to protect players, staff and their families.

  14. I'm confident the limited league programme will be completed but wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Scottish Cup wiped out this season due to the fixture congestion. We've probably not seen the worst of the winter yet so many more postponements still quite likely.

  15. This just shows that we often forget that there are greater struggles in life than playing games of football. Football is a sideshow, a break from the daily grind, a release. At its best it can be a tremendous pick me up and confidence booster, at its worst it will drag you down. To hear that such a positive guy like Robbo is suffering along with everyone else just brings it all home. I think it's time to cut a bit of slack to everybody during these unprecedented times and listen to what they have to say. The ear can be a great comfort to someone finding the daily grind overpowering

    • Dundee 2-1 Inverness CT - Report

Nikolay Todorov pulled a goal back with fifteen minutes left. Inverness mounted a mini-comeback but fell just short as Dundee held on for all three points.

    • Alloa Athletic -V- Inverness CT - Preview
      At the Crossroads: With our season gradually disintegrating, we head to Recreation Park Alloa to face The Wasps @ the Indodrill Stadium. It's a 3:00pm kick-off on Saturday with both sides lingering at the wrong end of the table, games in hand or not.  Our games in hand are dwindling away and there's little improvement in our league position. Four wins from sixteen games is not the form of a team challenging for a play-off slot to the premiership. This is now a crucial game in our season which is at the crossroads. Which way do we turn?

    • Dundee -V- Inverness CT - Preview
      The Scotty Gardiner grudge game: Some Dundee fans are still seething after some twisted information on Dundee's last visit when their chairman was left hanging by a thread according to some bitter Dee's. Good enough given the way their own club has handled some of the recent votes regarding possible league reconstruction. Short memories. Anyway, they have never really forgiven us for overturning a 15 point deficit to win the Championship by 12 points in 2010. Happy Days!
