  1. I am happy that the world is becoming a safer place to live in. I am happy that me and the missus have had 2 jabs and can plan to get back North. I am happy that my immediate family have survived the pandemic. I am saddened for the number of friends and colleagues who have experienced losses or stress induced illnesses. This football season means little except ICT are alive and kicking, we booted the Tinks out of the Cup and we may all meet up again next season in pre=match pubs and enjoy watching from inside the grounds. Basically - Good feckin riddance to the 2020-2021 football season a

  2. I will always appreciate those who step in to assist in times of need both personally & professionally and NM and BD did that on both levels, personally for JR in his time of need, and professionally for our club in ours. They steered us away from the playoffs at the wrong end and almost got us into the playoffs at the other end. Thank You Neil. Thank You Billy. It is appreciated. We hope that Robbo returns to his position for next season, but if for any reason he and Kells are not able to continue then I think most fans would have no hesitation in either or both of them holding the reins.

  6. Disappointing but not surprising. I can see Danny playing International football within two years if he continues to develop at the rate he has this season. A six figure sum for him would be handy right now but a substantial sell on clause may be far more fruitful in the long run. As far as he is concerned, I can see why he would be tempted but I wonder whether from a professional point of view, there might be merit to all parties in him signing a two year contract extension with us for as much as we can reasonably afford with Danny getting a cut of any transfer fee with a view

  13. Having been reluctant to regularly play more than one academy player in the team at a time over the past decade or so perhaps we should look to blood them more often now we can see their value to a club which (may) be in a position with higher standards of and/or more coaching resources at their disposal. The scouts aren't looking for a finished product 23 year old from a championship club - they see the potential that enhanced facilities and playing level can bring a player on exponentially. They want raw talent that can still be moulded into something that works best their team.

  14. It feels like we only started to see glimpses of what MacKay could do. If you had said to me even back in March that Hibs would be after him there's no way I would have believed you. But whilst it's a shame to see him go after only just getting to see what he could do it's also good in some ways for the club and Robbo to continue to sell us as the kind of side where, if you come up here and do well, you can get a good move after a couple of seasons and hopefully earn us some decent cash as well.

  17. That would be disappointing after we finally have started to see the promise he has but given his recent form it's not too much of a surprise that he is on the radar of top tier clubs. Hopefully we get some decent money for him at least. I think he has one year left on his contract? Six figures would be excellent but I suspect I am dreaming.

  19. You have a strange definition of 'rejection' This was indeed something of a referendum on a referendum and, in that context, the SNP received the highest number of votes, the highest percentage of the votes and won the most constituency seats ever and we have the highest ever pro independence majority in the history of the parliament all on the back of, by a considerable margin, the highest turnout in history. To put that into context, if the same parties had been contesting a Westminster election, whilst the Greens would have sadly been denied any seats through the unfairness of th

  24. I could not agree more. We have our disagreements, often profound, but we almost always do so in a respectful and polite manner and that, whilst never bad before compared to other sites, has improved greatly during the pandemic with minimal personal abuse and very little 'red dotting'. One of the very few aspects of 2020-21 that it would be welcome to see carry on into the future. Welcome back Johndo and thank you and all the hundreds of thousands of NHS staff and carers who have worked tirelessly for well over a year to get us through.

  26. Yes, the PL is well hidden maybe @Scotty could make it more prominent? Also agree that the NAPS is very frustrating but can be fun. All the competitions have been a tough call this season. Dates and kick off times being the most annoying and trying to keep them up to date. Competitors in the NAPS dwindled away when the offer of prize money was withdrawn and me not wanting to go down the route of having a entry fee. Yes, that would have given us a prize pot but I wasn't in my comfort zone of taking money off folk. Even the NPL lost it's trophy a few seasons back. The trophy was a

  27. Well done Calum, that was a tight run contest this year so a very worthy win, well deserved bragging rights in the household! Have to echo the thanks to Gringo for the running of all 3 comps - that takes some effort so cheers pal, you done good! Can understand the drop in numbers for the prediction league as per Robert's post, for any new members it's hard to find if you don't know where to look or even that it's there in the first place. My favourite comp (and the most frustrating coz we all get so many wrong!) is the NAPS contest - great fun! Looking forward to next season alread

  35. I was never a fan of Billy Dodds, quite the contrary but a management team of him and Robbo could work very well indeed. Whether he stays or not, I would very much like to echo the thanks for both him and Neil stepping into the breach at such short notice and doing such a good job from a standing start. Winning comprehensively at Dingwall will stick in the mind for a considerable time.

  36. Simply wish to say thank you to Neil McCann and Billy Dodds for their effort, input and positive contribution. You have knocked Terry McCann off the top of my list of favourite people with the surname McCann. 🙂 Also, Billy Dodds, you are more handsome than your relative Davie Dodds. 🙂

  40. Raith have beaten Dunfermline in the play offs, so we will face Dunfermline again next season. Cove only drew with Airdrie so they will not make the play off final unless they win away in the second leg. Credit Montrose for beating Morton, but the second leg could change that too as it is at the Cappielow bog.

  45. I agree entirely, Celtic would be crazy paying any fee to ICT for a player moving out of contract. I feel we have lost out on this one but an out of contract Ryan can negotiate better terms for himself. Pity, but that's the football world

  46. Most clubs offer 2 year apprenticeships, mostly paid by government, this is covered by a two year contract to start. Thinking they come thru youth system, then sign at age 17 after highers. Anybody outside that system seem to sign a limited contract, like Anthony MacDonald.

  47. Just my opinion but I would be giving first year pros 2 year contracts with review after 1 year to extend to 3 years. I would review every year. Their potential should be obvious to coaches during first year. It is our job to ensure they are given every opportunity to make the grade. We will lose some through late development tho.

    • 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.

      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.

    • Inverness CT -V- Ayr United - Preview
      For us, it's the final game of the season as we have missed out on the promotion play-offs despite a tremendous last six weeks which saw us go on a six game winning run including a derby Scottish Cup win over Ross County. Unfortunately we left ourselves an uphill task after the first two thirds of our season was decimated by injuries, covid and inclement weather. Ayr United head North with Championship survival high on their agenda as they look to avoid the relegation play-offs with Arbroath and Morton the other contenders. The game is a 19:45 kick-off on Friday night.

    • Hearts 3-0 Inverness CT - Report
      Our season looked over inside ten minutes after Mackay-Steven ran at the defence before drilling a low shot into the bottom corner as the defenders backed off. McEneff doubled the lead with the aid of a deflection in the ninth minute to nestle the ball in the bottom corner again. Mackay-Steven notched his second as he poked his leg in between Deas and Ridgers to kill the game with half an hour gone. The second half was an anti-climax for both sides with no further scoring, and with results elsewhere our challenge has come to an end.

    • Hearts -V- Inverness CT - Preview

      After the disappointing draw with Dundee in midweek, our destiny is in the hands of others. All we can do is gather points and hope that others can lend a helping hand by taking points of Dunfermline and Dundee as we visit Tynecastle to take on Champions Hearts. All games kick-off at 3:00pm on Saturday, it's a massive day of football in the Championship.
