  1. A point gained rather than two lost. I thought we shaded the first half, but Dunfermline definitely were the better team after the break, with Ridgers keeping them out although we had one shot that grazed the post. Had we got ahead before the break we would have gone on to win, but we were hanging on in the last 15 minutes or so. I didn’t see any fans walk out. Whilst our support was vocal in the first half they were quite muted when we were holding on towards the end. Dunfermline are better than their league position and I’m happy with the point the way things turned out.

  2. Didn't really get going. Thought we were popping it about quite comfortably first half and building to something but the departure of Shane really shook us. Seems weird to say it because he's not one of our best technical players and it's taken him a while to establish himself but so much of what we've acheived so far this season is built around what Shane does. Saw a bit of squad weakness for the first time in having to play Harper in left mid for a half and he was truly awful. Still, great penalty box defending and the best keeper in the league (maybe in the country?) saw us through. It's a

  3. Great summation! However I still feel drained this morning. A really invested supportive Caleyaway crowd who kicked every ball with them. Well done Dunfermline too with low key friendly stewarding and fantastic catering stand which even had a contactless payment device.

  5. Really good first half dunfermline then started to get in our faces some dodgy tackles and with Doran Sunderland and Duke having to go off we lost our way and let them back in to the game but we would have taken this results at the start of season well done guys you are doing us proud special mention to Mark riders 2 fabulous saves

  7. Queens visit. After dropping our first points of the season last weekend to bottom club Dunfermline, seventh place Queen of the South come calling on Saturday to the Caledonian Stadium, the game kicking off at 3:00pm. We had Mark Ridgers to thank for earning us a point at East End Park as he pulled off two tremendous saves late in the game to deny the Pars their first win of the season. The draw was sufficient to keep Inverness top of the table but Kilmarnock and Arbroath gained some ground at the top end whilst the Pars stay rooted to the foot of the Championship. Queens

  8. There is a really interesting atricle on the BBC Scotland website today describing the occasion when a Spurs side described as 'bristling with international stars' was humbled 6-3 by a Caledonian and Thistle select at a 'packed Telford Street'. Sorry, I have been unable to make the link work for some reason but it's well worth a read.

  9. Pretty entertaining game and a draw was fair on the balance of play. I feel like we had more chances over the piece but they were not particularly clear cut. A goalmouth scramble and a Mckay shot which flashed by the post were as close as we came. Dunfermline had the two best chances of the game which drew wonder saves from Ridgers. The block from the Toddy header was outstanding and we were definitely up against it for large parts of the game particularly after we lost Sutherland and Doran to injury which really knocked our rhythm. Another good performance from Roddy with his classic Cr

  11. From what I could see, not a single home walked out as part of the much publicised protest against the board, despite a few reminders from our fans that it was time. 😀

  12. What should we do ? Should we simply discuss the result and have a brew ? Should we quaff a single vodka and coke in respect of a point ? Shall we have a double vodka and coke as we have taken a point away from a team supposedly destined above us to go up ? Of course it is a feckin "Doddsie"

  13. That was a good game not to lose. Dunfermline were obviously determined not to lose, and were cynical in doing so. Can't remember when I last saw a team commit so many fouls. The referee was weak. The commentators were biassed idiots. They were surprised when Sutherland went off - it was because he had just been hacked down, you morons. I turned them off in the second half, after my wife booked me for swearing. Duku tries, but he is just not effective. And Billy will never score unless there is good service into the box. Thanks go to Ridgers for keeping us in the g

  14. Slightly disappointing but not the worst result. The Pars were always better than their league position suggested. We are still top of the league and still unbeaten. Our next two games are against QOS and Hamilton Accies and the important thing is to put any disappointment behind us and focus on taking 6 points from these two fixtures. If you had offered me top of the league, unbeaten and only one goal conceded at this stsge in the season I would have rushed to accept.

  22. The club held it's AGM last night and announced a 70% cut in their losses. A loss of £263,000 was announced for the year ending May 2020 which is a major drop from the £892,000 for the previous year. The gate receipts were down from 74'893 to 43'106 although retail went up 20%. While it is still a large debt the Chairman, CEO and Directors would appear to be steering the club in the right direction even with all the problems that were caused by the covid 19 pandemic.

  25. Intrtesting to see that admission to the terracing was a shilling which, accounting for inflation, is about £7.80 in today's terms. Pretty good value for such a high profile glamour match. That said, when I first started going to the football in the 60s it was still only 2 shillings to get through the 'boys and OAP's' gate at any of the three Inverness grounds. Perish the thought that any girl or woman might want to go to the football.

  27. It very nearly was in the last few minutes. Anyone else notice that xmas has come early for the referee, he was showing off his brand new whistle, and he was virtually blowing it every time he took a breath! God save us from people like him.

  30. Thought that was pretty poor. Dunfermline were winning every first and second ball in the second half. Lucky to get away with a draw in the end. The co-commentator must be a nightmare to work with, he was constantly interrupting the commentator 😆. Found myself agitated listening to it. Anyways, despite a poor performance, a point on the board away from home to what we thought would be promotion rivals, which is positive.

  35. This is a trial by the Serimax company to ascertain whether sending their apprentices on training experience placements. It ties in with the company's aim to work within the local communities that they are situated in. It sounds that this can only be a positive. It would be interesting to see if it is still happening at Dungwall and what the gudgies thought of it. The only worry that I have is that the club bring in Balfour and Caley D to train them up. Or even worse - Charlie Bannerman.

  36. Ha ha, I’m not always glued to the club’s activities. Getting MacGregor and Harper on longer contracts is a great bit of business, and we do seem to be getting our act together with our best assets, given the extensions signed by Ridgers, Carson and Allardice over the last few months. I’d like to see Deas join the list of those extending, but this really gives us hope for the future. If they do get the opportunity to join a larger club, the fees we get will be helpful in sustaining the club, so a “win win” situation. Reading this has made my day!

  38. Well from where I was sitting the dunfermline keeper didnt have to make a save. A glancing header in the first minute nearly had them in front and Ridgers performed a miracle to keep out a close range back post header. Once again keeping us in a match (2nd week in a row). Some good battling in midfield in the first half but the opposition were seriously on top at the end. Rodgers made another save when our total lack of any pace in central defence sold us short. Welsh went close and then McKay (I think) all within a minute in the second half. Persisted with long ball after duku went off which

    • Inverness CT -V- Queen of the South - Preview
      Queens Visit: As the stats show, Inverness have the upper hand in this fixture but Queens won 0 - 1 in the last one at the Caledonian Stadium in February 2021 when Nortei Nortay scored the only goal of the game as the visitors burst forward around the hour to win in Inverness for the sixth time out of nineteen visits.

    • Dunfermline 0-0 Inverness CT
      It was top versus bottom on the Halbeath Road as Inverness visited Dunfermline Athletic. Unfortunately it was a rather turgid affair that ended goalless and that was down to keeper Mark Ridgers who made two fantastic late saves to deny Nikolay Todorov and Craig Wighton who could have taken the points as the Pars looked to get their season up and running. As it was, it ended all square with Inverness remaining top and Dunfermline staying bottom.

    • Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT - Preview
      In stark contrast, Inverness are on a winning run of five games on the bounce in the Championship, have the manager of the month in Billy Dodds, and sit top of the table having already beaten three of the favourites in Raith, Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle. What could possibly go wrong?

    • Inverness CT 3-1 Partick Thistle - Report
      After a difficult first half, Inverness ran out comfortable winners against Partick Thistle in a second half goal blitz. The visitors dominated the first forty-five and Scott Tiffoney drilled the opener out of nothing. Manny Duku was denied by a combination of keeper and post but it was Partick that should have scored a second, but Mark Ridgers did well to deny Brian Graham. Harsh talking at the break saw Inverness come out for the second half with the bit between the teeth and Kirk Broadfoot was the unlikely hero as his twenty yard shot evaded the outstretched fingertips of the keeper to level the score. Shane Sutherland did well to slot in the second from an angle after the keeper fluffed his lines allowing Shane to slot in from twenty yards. The third was a peach as Duku stepped over the ball and Aaron Doran fired high into the net for a brilliant third and game over. That's five wins out of five and the run goes on...

      Another top of the table clash this weekend as promoted Partick Thistle head North on Saturday to take on the Caley Jags. It's a 3:00pm kick off at the Caledonian Stadium and with free scoring Partick going well, expect a big crowd and a tough game.
