    Looking forward to other Highland league sides informing us when they are facing ICT.

    I really dislike Roy making comments about Inverness and our relegation. Let him comment on his club and we will look after ourselves. Budgets dont guarantee anything. Look at Utd this season, big budget no promotion. Livi, small budget but excellent team spirit/ work ethic and have a chance of promotion. He has inexperienced managers at the helm ending the season with a whimper, we have a manager who has settled into the job and finished the season on a high. I know which I would rather. Bring it on!!

    I truly despair at folk on here's views of Vigurs. He is a superb footballer and will be a huge loss to us - anyone who thinks otherwise clearly doesn't really get football at all. More worryingly this appears to be a very visible attempt by our neighbours to lay down a marker for next season and beyond. A much as I enjoyed their demise on Saturday I fear they will be going large on an immediate return to the Premiership. We appear to be shopping at Aldi and they are clearly intent on melting their plastic in M&S.

    The abuse Polworth gets really is out of order and there are some in the stands who really ought to be ashamed of themselves. Sure, he can be a very frustrating player to watch, but on the whole his attitude is great and I don't think anyone can accuse him of not try and not caring. The problem is almost as if he tries and cares too much at times. There are times when he is dispossessed that his immediate reaction is one of expressed disappointment. There is a drop of the shoulders or a look up to the heavens, and in doing that there is a delay of a second or two before he acts to try and reclaim the ball. By then, it is too late and it looks as though he's not bothered. A player like Vigurs loses the ball and the immediate reaction is to get it back as quickly as possible. Polworth's reactions are sometimes more like those of a fan than a professional footballer and if he hasn't got that trait out of his system by now, I don't know that he ever will. The other irritating thing is that when he surges forward he often pushes the ball too far in front of him. This often means that he then gets too tight to defenders and is either dispossessed or is unable to get a decent ball away. He needs to keep the ball a bit closer and sometimes just slow down a bit and give himself a bit more time to see what's going on around him. These two flaws in his game are very noticeable during a match and we lose possession because of them. But for all that, the number of assists he has made plus his contribution to many other goals speaks volumes for the positive contribution he makes. One of the reasons people notice Polworth is that he does work so hard, he makes himself available and he tries to make things happen rather than just play the simple safe ball all the time. It should also be recognised that too often we lose possession because other players have not reacted to his runs, have failed to spot the spaces opening up as defenders go to Polworth and have not made themselves available to receive the ball. Polworth then unfairly gets the stick because he was the one who had the ball before we lost it. Yes, it can be frustrating watching Polworth at times, but it can also be very exciting. I would far rather we had Polworth in the side than not. If some people in the stands would praise all the good work he does rather than shout abuse when things go wrong we would have a much better atmosphere in the ground.

    This is also a squad that went something like 12 games unbeaten at the business end of the season.

    I posted about his season last season on another thread, that seems to have been deleted? He was our best attacking player last season, the only criticism that you could maybe have is that he should've scored more than three goals in the league. That's a minor quibble considering he provided 18 assists, by far the most in the Championship. People in our support seem to have it in for him because of things like his 'body language' and 'attitude'. This is the same sort of stuff that used to be said about Vigurs, people should try and pay more attention to what players actually do than how you perceive them to be behaving.

    Its time for Polly to fulfil the gap left by Vigurs, He is a talent and the stats of his assists etc from last season tell us that. We need him signed up on longer deal.

    What exactly is wrong with his attitude? He broke into the team in 2013 but dropped back in 2014 and looked as though he might be on his way out but he came back and established himself as a first team starter after that. Following the disappointment of relegation he has been an important player, behind a lot of our effective attacking play. He's played in a number of positions - wide midfield and centrally, takes set pieces and puts up with the nonsense that some of our fans throw at him.

    Lads let me welcome you to Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Marginally older than yourselves at 24 years of age. Positive vibes about our club and you are excellent additions to our squad. We are a club that is moving forward as we approach our landmark 25th birthday. Enjoy.

    Mcgregor spent millions this year, don't see it helping them stay in the premier league? Vigurs went for money, he is a good footballer but we can get on without him.

    Whenever we play County next season, we should be able to get them down to 10 men within a few minutes. It's a JOKE!!!

    For the record, I think both can and will be replaced

    Disappointing news and it's never good to hear players being abused by our own fans. However, Vigurs did not move to County because of a bit of stick from the stands. At the age of thirty, he moved for more money and an equally long deal without having the upheaval of having to relocate. I have no issue with him doing that but I sincerely hope that he is playing lower league football for at least a year longer than those who have chosen to remain.

    Very disappointed to see Vigurs leave, he has been outstanding this season. Of course the "fans" who constantly shouted abuse at him in the first half of the season will be happy now and can turn their rancid hatred back to Polworth who will no doubt follow......

    You've been on here long enough to know its the ICT fan way - never see the issues at present, never want to look forwards and only to reminisce with rose tinted specs craving for former players/managers/board members to return us to the glory days................ We've signed a few young players from other clubs who have experience at Championship level or higher along with tying some of the existing squad on longer deals - with the added youth then there really isn't a lot of more additions likely or needed. With the departure of Vigurs a strong midfield enforcing player would be great, but we have Trafford who deserves a chance. Probably need another experienced CD as I'm not sure we will get a full season out of Warren. Other than that its adding the right strength and depth rather than just throwing names around now - up front a 20 goal striker would be great but doubt we can afford one, we already have Austin & Oakley so perhaps theres already one in the squad!!!

    No he wasn't and that goal against Hibs was the only thing of note from him in his time here. He would not survive 10 minutes in the Championship. Why do some people want us to keep looking backwards to sign players?

    Good for him in some respects. He is a County fan and a member of the Ross Shire community and puts his money where his mouth is. Our job is to show him and County that money isn't everything and with team spirit, sound coaching and vocal backing from the stands we are capable of getting promoted on much more meagre resources.

    I dunno. Depends if we're winning or not!

    I think we're building the team quite nicely for next season but it's early days. Some of the youngsters are going to have to step up to the plate. The Championship is a tough league to get out of and the 2018/2019 season is going to be no different. Given our post-cup run I am optimistic for our fortunes.

    Spot on DD. When it's anything to do with any liability, it's got nothing to do with them, but when there's any credit involved, they are desperate to inherit it. They just want to cherry pick the good bits.

    whatever our recruitment policy is jr and his team seem to be doing a good job behind the scenes. i also applaud our youth dept in bring 10 potential players into the full-time environment and giving them the opportunity to mature in the hfl. it is however vital they get the appropriate level of coaching so i hope charlie christie is involved on a daily basis.

    We should focus on welcoming Tom Walsh & Angus Beith - 2 young midfielders - to the club & not get ourselves worked up about Vigurs leaving.. Vigurs is gone - all the best, Iain & hope we're back in the top flight before you are...

    Penny wise, Pound foolish. Aldi is value for money and sufficient. A shop for the people. M&S is pretentitious, snobby and thinks it's 'it'. Financially secure? Mmmmm? A shop being run on false pretences? I know where I'd rather go.

    I agree. I think this season for them a prime example of how throwing money at players who dont care doesnt work.
