  1. My thoughts are with Robbo and his family. Experiencing the physical and emotional trauma of this pandemic has been difficult for many people. I can appreciate how footie can provide distraction to many but I simply cant enthuse whatsoever about this season and cant wait until it is over and we are safe to battle it out again next season. I dont see the need for an interim manager as that may just cause more problems. I would be happy to leave that the "old school brigade" are capable of keeping the ship going and hopefully none of the Robbo vultures will turn on them to. So you take all

You may find them disrespectful, and others may agree or disagree with those comments, but they are opinions of people who are entitled to voice their opinion whether you, I or anyone else agrees with it or not. Also, no-one has actually used the reporting mechanism that triggers a moderator discussion on a specific topic or post. In a situation like this, the typical course of action is to allow the rest of our audience to (respectfully) dis

  5. What kind of fans do we have ? It’s embarrassing reading some of the comments on here . A man is willing to give up a steady position to help us in our hour of need and this is how we thank him . I know the majority of fans will appreciate what he is doing and get behind him .I just hope he’s not reading these nasty negative comments and wants to put his coat on and head back down the road ......WHY IS ADMIN ALLOWING IT ?

  7. The club has to be commended in taking prompt and decisive action in extremely difficult circumstances. Firstly and most importantly protecting the health of all staff. Then to support the team by bringing in an experienced interim manager. As supporters we would do well now to get behind both the management team and the players to achieve as high a league finish as possible. Keep safe and keep positive...

  8. An excellent result against potentially very difficult opposition in far from ideal weather conditions. As is usually the case in Ayr the home side started very brightly. We often find ourselves under the cosh early doors at Somerset and today was no different with the windy conditions not helping. Ayr settled quickly and were soon stroking the ball around well looking to hit Walsh and McCowan on their respective flanks. The former, well known to ICT fans of course, was the main focus as he frequently cut inside Duffy on the left flank and looked to hang balls up to the back post for team

  9. A vital and most welcome boost to our coffers at this most difficult of times. Once again. Thanks to the Hearts fans who came up with this wonderful gesture and everyone, Hearts fan, ICT fan or no fan at all who has contributed in their own modest way. There is much to criticise in Scottish football but it is also important to give full praise and credit where it's due and it is most certainly due here.

  10. Hearts fan in peace. I'm personally awaiting 5 signed letters from Robbo. My monthly pension comes through next week, so I may very well up that to 10 letters. I'm more than happy to throw a bit of my money to ICT, if any of you check out Hearts forums, you'll know that I'm not alone. Your club is regarded by Hearts fans as being one of the good guys, the fact that your manager is a Hearts legend just adds to that feeling. My ideal scenario for this season is that we carry on and win the league, and you guys can also win promotion through the play-offs, you have a lot of games in hand

  11. Jambo here, We all just want to repay the kindness you have shown to us over the years, not many sides have your integrity and it is very much appreciated from the whole Jambo family! Just purchased tickets for each member of my family, sorry Robbo you are going to have a very sore wrist! Also just to let you know there are a few posts going round the Hearts forums/pages where we are talking about trying to beat your attendance record at the Caledonian Stadium, we will do our best so watch this space! Thanks from a grateful Jambo

  12. Well that was my first sight of ICT this season. So nice to see the Dump again. Point was a bonus against a stronger Hearts team. BBC commentary came from BBC Gorgie. Great comeback from McCann after the game. All strength to him and hope that the point gives Robbo a wee boost. As I said before let ICT climb up the Championship, get this damn season over and done with, keep us all safe and enjoy the terrace craic and camaraderie next season.

I am well aware what the forum is for and that was the reason for my comment .... My feelings are the man has kindly given up a comfortable life in the middle of a pandemic to help us .His feet aren’t in the door and the comments on here are quite disrespectful .

I know I'm one to talk so feel free to slate me, probably not what mods want to hear (and not because it will lead to me losing the rag though) because it could lead to this thread going way off topic. Some of the comments I've seen on here, Facebook and Twitter are actually laughable. The guy hasn't had a match yet and some are saying its a disaster, which is wrong because Neil is a well respected sky pundit who knows what he's talking about. Yes his record at Dens wasn't good but we have had many failures of other clubs managers come here and do well. It's only interim an

  15. Like everyone, zi have no idea how long this appointment might last but give the man a chance and, at the very least stop making snide comments about the clubs he has played for. This is not poisonous west central Scotland. Mercifully, such things are irrelevant to the great majority of us here. McCann has been around the Scottish football scene, one way or another most of his life. He is fresh to the club and may bring a different insight. He must certainly isn't coming for the money or the glamour of managing ICT. There is no doubt that his only other spell as a manager ende

  16. If we score the penalty and go 3-1 up then there is no way back for Alloa. The way we were playing at the time, we might well have grabbed another and then gone into the Hearts game full of confidence. As it is a missed penalty and dissent in the ranks gives Alloa a huge boost and we lost the confidence and momentum we had achieved. Every team has a designated penalty taker and all players are well aware of who it is. It is completely unacceptable that someone who is not that person should try to take a penalty, and one assumes from what we witnessed that Storey was not the designated

  17. I don't think we will be relegated this season maybe a 6/7th place finish for us. What worries me is what happened next season and beyond. It's so painful to watch the club that I love turn out such rubbish week and and week out. When I started following caley I said I'd follow the club all the way down to league 2 if need be and I stand by that. Win, lose or draw SPL or league 2 it's ICT for me

  18. He comes across very well here, very aware of the sensitivity of the situation and its reassuring to hear that he didn't want to do anything until he could speak to Robbo first. A little moral integrity doesn't do any harm. Best of luck to him and let's hope he can drag us into the (right) play offs.

  19. I think it's a tradition amongst some of the ICT support to have a dig at a newly appointed manager at our club. Even the likes of Brewster, Butcher, Yogi, Foran and, yes, even Robbo got the expert fan opinion. I think the only one that didn't get any initial stick was Charlie. McCann is more experienced than the current options within the club so, for me, it's the right decision.

  20. Pretty well sums up this shytt season. The best 80 seconds of the season do far completely undone by the tail of 2 penalties. Ours taken far to casually, theirs struck competently and professionally. We lost those potentially vital 2 points through sheer complacency. In turning it around from 0-1 to 2-1 we seem to believe the task had been completed. A shocking attitude and not nearly good enough.

  21. These are the worrying posts in this thread. The notion that the club are - once again - going into ostrich mode is concerning. How many hundreds of complaints have we seen, not just on here, about this clearly substandard system we are persevering with? and then to ignore comments of fans on social media and not address them ...... not a good idea. There has never been a period quite like this in world history and this is the time where the club should be doubling down on focussing locally by listening to supporters, working with the community, doing whatever they can in and around Inve

  22. Its not a new thing .... The club often seem to have had an issue listening to, acknowledging the capabilities of, or quality of service from, volunteers. Countless examples over the years of them going and doing something completely different, costing more money, because its 'professional' when they had a perfectly good or superior product in place already. The TV coverage is a prime example .. and there are plenty more. Seems to be a couple of basic mindsets at play where it has to be a specific person's idea or its not getting any traction regardless of performance (the MyWay or Highwa

  23. Obviously I'm biased because I commentated for their audio stream last season but it is just bizarre. They even ran a successful test broadcast of the Dundee game to prove they could do it - with on screen graphics and in-game replays to boot! And yet the club still chooses to pay for Pixellot instead of using skilled, experienced volunteers...even though they're filming the game anyway. Then they use the CaleyJagsTV highlights too, which just emphasizes the difference in quality. It is a really, really strange decision by the club.

  24. We have already been stung by the Wasps twice this season. If we are to harbour any lingering Hopes of a play off place we can't afford to let it happen again. Anything less than 3 points would be a near fatal blow to those ambitions.

  26. Grim, grim, grim. Dundee well on top at the start and although we pushed them back a bit they quickly re-established their dominance. They knew a high press against our back line would work given McCann's preference to play out from the back and players were often caught in possession. Meanwhile, our defence looked haphazard any time a cross or long throw came anywhere near it. McDaid turning Duffy inside out for a good chunk of the first half before he eventually realised he could nullify him by sending him towards the bye line was criminal in how long it took to be employed.

  27. Quite enjoyed that. Balance of play I suppose Hearts might have won it on points but hey, it was a good end to a week of turmoil. I hope Robbo and Scott have taken some comfort from this result and performance. ICT are in good hands just now boys. Even though I was watching on the box it was as if I was there. During the day I'd been building up to the game by posting updates on Facebook of my virtual trip up from Coventry 0 on the motorcycle. I left home at 0800 and got to the stadium around 1720. One or two thought I was actually travelling and they pointed out that I shouldn't be trave

  28. Comes across well and is basically doing this as a favour to two friends (Scot Gardiner and Robbo). At pains to explain he is not interested in Robbo's job, just wants to keep the seat warm, and that he only took it on after speaking to Robbo. For me that interview pretty much ticks all the boxes in terms of doing things right and having the right attitude about it .... lets hope now that he can get a few points on the board. With Kells gone for now and Robbo obviously having a hard time of it recently - having mentioned mental health issues and now a bereavement - perhaps the eye was indeed o

  29. I'm not sure I think Storey was ever so slightly offside. Glad no one has said something like "you've got to give the benefit to the attacker" as there is no rule that says you do. You win some, you lose some and sadly we lost that decision. All the positivity from the Ayr game seems to have evaporated after last nights draw. It feels like we should have won that but at the same time I feel that had we bagged three points we wouldn't really have been deserving of them. There was a strange moment when the commentator on ICT TV said (paraphrasing) that we deserved to be level if not ahead b

  30. Given the position with Robbo and Kells, the club clearly sees that we need someone in, probably for the rest of the season but possibly longer, who knows. As it is not a permanent job, I think it is remarkable we have attracted anyone who had ongoing work elsewhere, so it implies that McCann sees this as an opportunity to prove himself and secure a managerial role somewhere. The club is in a difficult place right now, so I believe we should all be getting behind the club and McCann, regardless of how we view his appointment. At the very least, he deserves the next month or so to sho

  32. Thought we'd rescued 3 points from another poor performance until we hit self destruct yet again. I couldn't believe how nervous we looked with the ball at times. After Alloa went ahead we huffed and puffed without creating much of note. The away side were happy to defend what they had and to be honest we didn't look like we were ever going to break them down - even our dozen or so 2nd half corners were easily enough defended. Storey going wide left seemed to completely change the game though and once we scored it felt like 3 or 4 were coming. I just want to finish with a note on S

  33. What an awful year it has been for the club. It is unprecedented what the club and its senior staff in particular have had to cope with this year. I'm sure all our hearts go out to Robbo at this difficult time and, all in good time, we look forward to both him and Scott returning fighting fit and raring to go. It is often said that we are a family club and it is great to see the club behaving with compassion and recognising that the wellbeing of everybody is the priority here. Scot Gardiner's statement on the club website is an excellent one which emphasises what a close knit community the

Bought mine today together with another for my virtual imaginary friend.

  36. I dont get it.........I just dont get it. The club is under incredible pressure right now. The players (of whom we ask so much) are , Im sure, trying their level best. They arent trousering thousands a week; they are dealing with the internal upheaval and in a lot of cases isolated from their families. Its no picnic for these youngsters. I did expect them to challenge for the play offs and that may still happen. Unfortunately if they read some of the rubbish that spews forth from here every time we have a reverse in fortune..........well, that cant help either. Consistency would be great; a su

  39. I'm happy with this appointment. It's like a typical ICT signing, a guy who has faltered a bit elsewhere and comes in with a bit of a point to prove. He's got a very good knowledge of Scottish football and seems to have a bit of authority about him. Really looking forward to see how this goes.

  41. Very disappointing not to win that, especially having done all the hard work to gain the lead. If Keatings is the recognised penalty taker, why on earth did he not insist on taking it? Two moments of brilliance to be happy for, and lots of frustration. Final touch/cross was often really poor. To be fair, Alloa looked quite well organised at the back. How many corners did they defend well? At least a dozen I would guess. We'll have to be a lot more clinical to get anything from Hearts on Friday.

  42. Todorov comes across as a half decent player, who would benefit from more regular starts. If he is struggling against a particular opponent there is no shame in then swapping him out, at this level no one will be a 'world beater' game after game. When I saw Carson play in the corresponding fixture in January last year he really did look a good player at this level. We've never lost this season when Daniel Mackay has scored 😊, so good to see him, Harper and MacGregor stepping up well

  43. Anyone shouting for the managers head this week? Great result and well deserved and agree with Robert. David Carson was tremendous. As Robert said, the difference this week was that we put the ball in the back of the net after some tidy interplay. Had we done the same against Queen of the South we would have strolled the game. Queens result today made our performance in midweek look like Brazil at their best....without the goals. We'll laugh about it one day. Ridgers was good today as was Danny Devine. No one stood out as being poor so good day at the office all round.

  44. I don't think we should be calling for Robbos head. I disagree with some of his selections but which fan doesn't when form isn't good. Whilst form is disappointing it's not yet alarming (this could change quickly though) and there are caveats. I've already written this season off (almost did before a ball was kicked) and am looking to next season to mount a proper challenge. I think Robbo deserves that at least.

The feedback on the streaming was enough to put me off and I doubt my wi-fi would cope with it anyway...but that's another story. This was always going to be a difficult game against the form team. They had 9 of their squad missing by the way (according to their Twitter feed) Yes we are devoid of match practice but I don't think that's an excuse. We lack a creative player(s), ideas, goalscorer and tactical awareness. Reading the comments about the g

  46. The stunning lack of creativity in this team was on full display tonight. We might have been missing players but so were QotS so I am not having that as an excuse. Storey and Mackay, whilst willing and hard working on the flanks did not create enough throughout the time they were on the pitch to have us in a more comfortable position. A good cross by Mackay in the first half which found Storey who saw his effort deflect over / wide was as good as it got. When MacGregor came on later on and popped up on the left side he was continuously looking to cut back in on his right and with no support do

  47. In the 11 league games we've played we've dropped 8 points from winning positions. 6 of those were against sides you'd expect us to beat. Having games in hand is only good if you can win them. We will be playing catch up now with the back log of fixtures and could be playing twice a week for some time. This could have a drastic effect on performance and fitness I think. Hopefully the boys will be up for the challenge and have the rants of Robbo ringing in their ears when they enter the field of play. Queens are up first and are in form just now so this isn't going to be as easy as it was when

      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?

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!
