  1. It would appear that you are very much in the minority with such a negative view. Personally, I am more enthused about the new season than I have been for some time.

  2. It may be the easy option but these guys are still quality players. To be honest I cant see many players signing for any team at our level because they are desperate to play for them. Manny Duku wont be signing because he saw us last year and thought he would love to play for us. He's signing because he wants to play football and we offered him that chance. All we can do is hope that any new signing comes in and gives 110% and does his best for ICT. If they do that then I'll be more than happy and have no concerns about where they came from or why they came.

  3. That's why Prog was invented. Duku - great signing and a bit of a shock 😮

  4. Miles Storey has posted on social media that he is assuming he will be off as no contract offer has been received and no one from the club has been in touch with him. Really poor to leave players in limbo like this and it wouldn't take much to reach out to them. There are plenty of rumours swirling around who has gone and who might be gone but some clarification from the club would be welcome.

  6. Your point is perfectly valid and you are absolutely entitled to it although it now seems clear that neither player was free to move to us in January. Even if they were, why, at that time, would they choose to play at a lower level for half pay or less ? Now that they have effectively been made redundant they are choosing to move to the only other major employer in the same industry for over a hundred miles around so they don't have to disrupt their settled domestic arrangements. I am sure that the great majority of us would do the same in similar circumstances.

  7. All signings have reason to develop. Gardyne does not want to retire just yet. Billy will be just as keen to score now as before. McAlear has a career in front of him with an EPL club if he can develop. Duku still has a point to prove. Gardyne and Billy also add much needed experience that will benefit our really good younger talent. All good news and pleasing in the light of the lockdown mentality we have come to accept but now keen to move forward.

  8. and what better way to "get it right up ya" to Uncle Roy and Ross County, who they think dumped them unceremoniously than being motivated in doing really well for Caley Thistle!!!

  9. I’m pleased for Tremarco that he’s got a role after retiring from playing, and I’m sure he will do well. Just a shame we didn’t have a role for him in our set up.

  10. These days for Billy Mckay it’s maybe not so much a case of “He scores when he wants” as “He scores a perfectly reasonable proportion of the chances provided to him and is as good a striker as we can realistically expect taking into account our club’s current league status and limited financial resources”, although admittedly that’s not quite as catchy to chant.

  11. Well worth a punt at Championship level and can be used sparingly as an impact substitute in the Premiership during the second year of his contract.

  13. Aye Robert I'm with you there - hope is indeed eternal, however, I don't think I can cope with a repeat of the three decades of glorious disappointment we endured in the 70s, 80s and 90s. I'll be happy whatever the outcome as long as we take 3 points away from Wemberley...

  18. With the likelihood that away games are out the window next season then we can make more use of the away stand and apply to have greater numbers of supporters attend our home games.

  19. I hope not. That would be fundamentally unfair. If there is to be a continuing restriction on numbers the equitable way to deal with it is by ballot.

  20. I agree. Mckay and Gardyne will hopefully want to prove a point and show that they are still players who aspire to be in the top league…..with us!

  21. agree with this … I am a fan of the adage that "if you are good enough, you are old enough" but while youth is all well and good, and its great to see players get their chances, you absolutely need some experience and veteran presence to grind out results over the course of a season and to act as mentors to younger players coming through. Pretty happy with how the squad has shaped up so far, and the addition of someone to look after fitness and hopefully reduce injuries is also important ... that's one area where Brewster had us as the fittest team going and I think we competed for the full 90

  22. I’m really happy with how the squad is taking shape. We now have a few weeks to complete the picture (couple of defenders required in my opinion, and a goalie if MacKay does not stay), and get them to gel in terms of shape and tactics. Hopefully we are ready for 13 July for the cup ties and flying by the time the league starts on 31 July. We are probably more optimistic in June than we have been for some seasons. Let’s hope this is the year we get back up!

  23. Great to see us doing so much business, and with such decent players, so early in the close season in contrast to so many years when we are playing catch up in July. That is the midfield and attack well and truly sorted with a decent depth and range of options in both departments. Just the defence to sort out now. Excellent. business so far on such a tight budget.

  26. I am not sure that I would describe our signings so far as 'quality'. However, they are all experienced and perfectly able at Championship level and give us a chance of promotion this season. Given current circumstances and our financial constraints, that is probably all we can ask for just now. Definitely grounds for optimism.

  27. Duku has certainly moved around and seldom stays more than a year anywhere, and he’s only signed a one year deal with us. We need his Hayes and Yeading scoring rate: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manny_Duku Interview with Billy Mckay: https://ictfc.com/interview-billy-mckay

  28. You've obviously missed that we are supposed to use three word slogans these days...lets hope it's at least "Mckay. Scores. Another" Was a bit despondent losing Toddy after Daniel had gone, but Walsh, McKay and Duku are all welcome replacements.

  35. I suppose the embarrassing thing about it is the lack of info from the club regarding contracts. It's not ideal when we get it first on social media direct from the players. Come on ICT, get the official statements out and end all the whataboutery.

  36. I know it's easy to complain about things and clearly the club are...antiquated...off the pitch however I am struggling to think of a reason why we have not had an update on players leaving the club or season tickets. instead we are left to the players themselves to reveal that they have left the club through screenshots of their notes app on their phone. I see from @hislopsoffsideagain on Twitter that we are one of four clubs in the SPFL not to have released any kind of update on player movements. Says it all really.

  37. Ok, so the pink away strip is being replaced by a new away strip but the old away strip is becoming our third strip and the old home strip is probably/maybe getting replaced by a new one? Yet we don't really know, as to form the club hasn't seen fit to officially explain any of this? At least we're kept well in the loop about some opera singer next year which I've received emails about and has been all over social media which is obviously the key thing right now. 🙄

  38. There's a worrying pattern emerging (again) where we are not bothering our backsides to communicate with players about new deals. Whilst I respect @Yngwie's comment earlier about two sides to every story it's hard not to fall down on the side of the players given the number of times this has happened. Players finding out through social media or newspapers they won't be getting a deal or being left voicemails and then not replying to follow up calls or simply not being spoken to at all. It's pathetic.

  39. It's not like us to be vague, uncommunicative and borderline unprofessional. So I'm struggling to believe this situation is possible.

  40. Fear not Kingsmills, a win against them might be enough to fulfil your original criteria! As long as we can avoid making silly mistakes at the back I think this afternoon has shown that we can create the chances. A wee bit more composure in front of goal when they come with a wee bit more luck and we may very well do it - I can sense the 70s and 80s feelings of forlorn optimism creeping back in again 😀

  44. I think it's the fact that the Pentalina has a smaller crew than the Calmac ferries but might be wrong. I can't see why a ferry that sails the Pentland Firth would be unable to sail on west coast routes although the minch might be the exception in bad weather. Here is the article from the P&J yesterday.

  46. Reverse the situation … If Brad had commented on him in the media in a similar fashion would that be venomous? or would we applaud him for winding up our local rivals? Its all about perspective …. Was Charlie Christie venomous when he asked Bone the score and set him off on a course of events that got him issued multiple red cards? We all thought it hilarious. Were some of the comments about Derek Adams from our support about him 'seething' venomous? Nope, also hilarious from our point of view. Was Vigurs venomous in that famous picture of him giving fans the V sign? The fans got on his case

  47. Walking back to the car after the game was the first time I ever made a mobile phone call. I didn’t have my own one in those days so I borrowed one to tell my dad the score - he thought I was winding him up. From him taking me to see Caley in the Highland League to us winning comfortably at Celtic Park, just amazing.

      Deal or No Deal: After a season that promised so much, went tit's up then almost recovered in time to make the play-offs, we head into season 2021-2022 without some familiar faces but also some new ones as we continue our drive to get back to the Premiership. Are the cards on the table or have some already played their hand. So far Tom Walsh is the first 'new player' to sign on, let's hope there's plenty more to come.

    • It's Doddsy
      After a great run towards the end of last season, Billy Dodds has been appointed as the new head coach at Inverness Caledonian Thistle with John Robertson now upstairs as Sporting Director on his return after compassionate leave. Dodds assisted Neil McCann whilst Robbo was unavailable and just failed to guide the team to a play-off slot after what had become a difficult season on and off the pitch.

    • Apply Within
      APPLY WITHIN: The application forms are already in the post as Inverness Caledonian Thistle are searching for a new head coach after it was revealed that John Robertson is returning, but his new title will be Sporting Director. That leaves his former position of Football Manager/Head Coach up for grabs after interim manager Neil McCann left the post at the end of the season.

    • 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.
