  1. 3 hours old and already in the strip Northstandfan super proud of you and my new grandson. Future Northstander sorry if it’s not appropriate for this part of the forum but just had to do it.

  2. Again off topic, sorry, but I’m reminded of when a female work colleague returned from an overnight business trip to Islay where she spent the evening in a pub sampling the local malts. ”I woke up with the taste of peat in my mouth” she told us. ”Who’s Pete?!” was the response.

  3. I don’t agree that folk are finding something else to do on Saturdays. Over the past two days I have unexpectedly met several friends/fans all of whom are just waiting to get back to seeing ICT, saying their Saturdays are not the same at all. Me neither. In the meantime I am glad to see the games streamed on my iPad - despite all the complaints I am just so pleased to be able to see ICT. Happy clapper I suppose but I miss the North Stand and all the awaydays with the Travel Club - as usual not appreciated until it’s gone.

  4. Don't think anybody was working until just after 2:45pm. No idea what the issue was but I'm sure we were told it should be online from 2:00pm. Anyway, food for thought regarding facing West. Not a good idea even at the stadium. Surely facing the stand would give a better effect like being in a football stadium and cut down on light flare. Is it possible to zoom in a bit, everything happened at distance and I set mine up on 42" screen. Commentator just trying to do his best, its all a bit new to everyone. Just don't mute the mic next time. Constructive criticism might be better than simply dow

  5. That was a really good performance today. I know he gets pelters but Brad McKay played really well today. Some of the neat interplay between Allardice, MacGregor, Kennedy and Keetings was lovely. Thought Storey ran his b**ls off and always threatens but you’re 50/50 if he’s going to do anything with it. Well impressed with how Robbo worked on that team after the game last week. they really didn’t threaten. Workrate was excellent.

  8. I reckon Andy did a top job. Well researched. Great running commentary. Most coverage have a couple of pundits with facts and someone else doing commentary - he did it all on his own! Not just that but the atmosphere is flat as a pancake and he put some energy into it. You could always volunteer if you think you could do better ...

  11. That's literally why I said "surmising" in my post you've quoted. Ignoring for a moment the travel restrictions and accompanying exemptions you can see why potentially bringing stewards in from an area of the country that is in Tier 4 lockdown might not look as good as say bring them in from somewhere slightly closer that is in Tier 2? Regardless, I agree that any security company right now will be employing temperature checks, masks etc for their staff so whilst the whole thing doesn't look good it doesn't mean that we are necessarily in the wrong with what has happened given the af

  12. As already said, no corraling at the South stand, just an orderly queue waiting for about 20 minutes to move forward. Temp check, ticket scan and in to seat under guidance from steward. No issues as far as i can see. Considering about 60 at the North Stand so probably around 200 in total attended. Not seen anything official from the club. It's about time they appointed a media team that communicated with the fans to keep us up to date with what's going on. It would help to quash the rumours that emerge from all these inaccuracies and maybe the fans will see a different side to the club. I

  15. Yeah that's what I (finally) understood it as. Bob has bought 4 tickets and 3 have gone back to the club to be gifted to someone else to use. Bob was then told he could go and, under normal circumstances, so could the 3 others (presumably the club have thought all four were in a family or a friends group with Bob) but with the restrictions groups going and Bob having explained the situation, it's either Bob goes himself or the three others go (assuming the other 3 tickets he handed back tot he club have gone to a family). Not great but given the restrictions that's what needs to happen althoug

  16. There's always people going to criticise no matter who it is, many have their own agenda. To me the commentator is not as important as being able to see a decent stream and it was certainly watchable. The commentator was the same guy that did the first game. Thought he did ok as he's learning how to do it. I doubt it's as easy as people think it is to babble on for ninety minutes without repeating yourself. He maybe over articulated at times but that will come with game time. It was probably as difficult for him as it was for us to pick out certain players. I suppose a sidekick to bounce off a

  19. That's being a little unfair of John Robertson IMO (but obvs your entitled to yours) ….he has had to entirely reconstruct a defence after last seasons exits, plug gaps in the midfield (that lost the creative influence of Polworth and Vigurs in recent seasons), and try and add firepower up front. All on virtually no money, suffering a large number of injuries to key players and of course a disjointed start to the season. Clearly our first choice CB would be Toshney, but presumably we only got him because of the 'fragile' label. I'm guessing that Deas and Toshney would be the go-to pairing.

  21. I received a call today from a very nice lady at the Stadium who confirmed that they had my correct email address but that there had been an admin error meaning that I had received no notification or code for watching live streams. So, glad to say that not my fault, as suspected an admin issue. However any anger I had on Saturday was more than made up for by the apology and extremely polite lovely conversation that I had with the lady at the stadium. Sadly I didn't catch her name but I would like to offer my thanks to her for her honesty and cheerfulness.

  23. Excellent no case to answer as police Scotland spfl and sfa were all consulted Wednesday prior to kick off and no case to answer already received by Ictfc. Whoever sent that email needs a boot in the balls and told to stay clear if they think that the club would cut corners for the sake of having 300 fans at the game. Well done to the other 299 who followed the advice and stayed safe.

  29. As I understand Bob's post, he is not getting to go, but the tickets that he bought, and gifted to whoever are allowed to go. Great gesture by Bob and a kick in the balls by the club. Or am I missing something? Surely an oversight by the club?

  31. Much better coverage and the commentator did well, given he was on his own in an empty stadium. We cannot expect Sky Sports level commentary. As he was watching the feed, that could explain why he struggled at the Ayr game, as he’d have been watching the linesman’s head too at times! I agree with tm4j’s summing up in his report. We edged the first half but struggled to break East Fife down as they got everyone behind the ball. MacKay saved us from going in behind at the break. I felt our goal came slightly against the run of play but a well taken header by Sutherland from an accurate

  32. overall a decent product today. Camera work much better than previous efforts according to those that paid for it .. lesson learned should be to have an operator for future games. Commentary a little flat in places as I said earlier BUT he was doing his best and had obviously done some research and had lots of factoids written down. I enjoyed the commentary, especially as it became obvious he is an ICT fan and got excited when we were doing well. As I said earlier I think it’s difficult to do and especially on your own. A partner to help out, to get a bit of banter going, and to share the

  35. Let's be realistic. The name of the game this season is survival. Not just avoiding relegation from the Championship, but survival of the club itself. Paying compensation to terminate the contracts of the manager and assistants, and hiring new ones, would be suicidal. Not going to happen.

  36. Cracking nights entertainment and well worth £10. Raith TV was by some distance the best PPV setup I've experienced so far this season. One stutter just before the opening goal and that was it. No problems casting to the TV and the commentary team, whilst slightly biased towards RR as you'd expect, were good fun to listen to. "Has a ball ever hit a train here do you know?" Raith definitely the better team in the first half and I think we were on top for most of the second half save for a frantic final 10 minutes or so when Raith almost equalised on a couple of occasions before the finall

  44. Seems to be taking us a while to find our feet in games this season - why so many long balls in that wind in the first half? - but a much improved second half performance. Getting the early second half goal was probably crucial, as Arbroath sat in really well in the first half once they had scored, but we used the ball far better after that. Kennedy looks like he'll create a lot for us, Todorov misses chances but gets into the right positions and is starting to put a run together, and Allardice is looking like a great signing already. With so many players still to come back, lots of reasons fo

  48. We had multiple tests to make sure this was working perfectly remember and were told it was. If you're happy with it great, never ceases to amaze me the mediocrity we'll accept from our club sometimes and I'm not referring to the product on the pitch. We should be using this as an opportunity to expand the number of people who watch ICT as it's more accessible, really go out and sell the club to a wider audience with a great product regardless of what the result is. Instead it's our usual mantra of 'ach it's good enough, better than nothing I suppose.'

  49. I think a point in the current circumstances was a good one yesterday. The average age of our team that finished the game was 21 and a half. Mark Ridgers was our oldest player at 30. I've no idea but that may be the youngest team to have played a league game for ICT. The guys should get enormous credit for coming back and getting a point against a good and experienced Ayr team.

  50. Given the injury situation with our wafer thin squad, I think it is too early to start to despair. Winning the league is probably beyond us, it probably was for everyone except Hearts even before the season began, but there is all to play for as far as play off places are concerned and we won't know how we stand in that race until we have those currently on the treatment table back on the pitch. Given the late equaliser, I am choosing to view yesterday as a point gained rather than two points lost.

    • Inverness CT 2-0 Raith Rovers - Report
      300 fans, half a stream & a broken corner flagJames Keatings opened the scoring midway through the first half after Miles Storey broke forward before squaring to Keatings who calmly stroked a low shot into the net from fifteen yards. We had hit the woodwork twice in the first half through Storey without actually dominating. Scott Allardice doubled the lead after the hour. There was no further scoring but it turned out to be a comfortable win for the hosts with keeper Mark Ridgers restricted to catching crosses as Raith failed to trouble him. Jamie MacDonald at the opposite end kept Raith interested with three or four great saves coupled with some wayward efforts from our busy forwards.

      Willie Wonka and the Goalden Tickets

      Raith Rovers are the visitors this weekend for Matchday 5 in the Championship, and it will be the first game at the Caledonian Stadium to allow fans in during the covid pandemic, albeit restricted to around 300 tier one season ticket holders. It's a step in the right direction for football and hopefully it will be a successful occasion on and off the park. The game kicks-off at 3:00pm on Saturday November 21st, a date for the diary. It might be a bit like Willie Wonka, but from little acorns and all that stuff...

      Inverness won the game but all credit to East Fife for making this a tough tie. It took a penalty save by Cammy Mackay in stoppage time to keep us ahead after Shane Sutherland had opened the scoring in the second half. We had Mackay to thank for a wonderful save in the first half as well and he was my MotM.
