  1. Sad news indeed! He was captain of the 10th BB when I was there, affectionately referred to as 'JB' or 'Jelly Belly'. An influence and guidance on so many lives. A genuine, and funny, guy who will be missed.
  2. I disagree. The home kit, in particular, is the recognised identity of the club. We've had red and blue stripes in the past and which was universally acceptable to all fans of the club and a unique within scottish football. Why the sudden change back to all blue?
  3. You've said above that you have no affinity to either founder club so I wouldn't expect you to understand how strongly I feel about it.
  4. Surely that's the point! The club are making an attempt to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the formation of ICT, yet they release an effectively all-blue home kit and all-white third kit. Hardly seems to me to be a recognition of the merging of two separate clubs to form the current club? Yes it has been 25 years and yet here we are still facing the same issues 25 years later!
  5. Shocked but not surprised by it! The club has reached a milestone of 25 years since formation (remember when TWO teams went through what was quite a painful process to MERGE?) yet the two strips it releases for the anniversary predominantly only represent the colours of ONE of those teams? Quite sad that 25 years on we still have such issues at the club! 🔴⚫🔵⚪
  6. 4-0 over two legs tells its own story! Nothing to do with refereeing decisions or bad luck.......it's the story of our season, missed chances have cost us big time. Until we change that we will be stuck in this division. Good luck in the playoff final, Arabs. Expecting a bit of an exodus of players over the next few days now. 🙄
  7. Really looked like we were playing within ourselves today, likely with Tuesday in mind? Maybe that was the tactics or are the players just exhausted? Was an anxious spectacle for us fans and might have been very worrying had Ayr got a second goal before we got ours! Still we're through and that's what counts. Impressed by MacDonald when he came on. Would be great to get him back in on loan again next season.
  8. Let's face it the Roy McGregor era we're currently in is county's golden age! Once it's over it's unlikely they'll find another figure so willing to throw money at the club the way he's done and they'll revert to being a peripheral club similar to Elgin or Petterhead (albeit with the benefit of having a derby with their larger local rival 20minutes away ......Inverness CT). We, on the other hand, are at one of our lower ebbs in our short but very successful history. We will always be the bigger club, just not always the best run! Just wait around for a while......we'll be back!
  9. Best wishes Liam. ICT since age 8, most assists in the division, .......and will likely still be a target for the boo boys come Saturday!
  10. Felt it was a bit of a reality check today. We didn't play badly but we didn't play well, other than the first 10minutes of the match and for 10minutes after the first goal. We're currently a second flight side and it showed at times. That said, if Chalmers free kick goes in and McCart's 'goal' is allowed, it could've been a whole different story? And who knows if it would've been a different game if we had Donaldson and Welsh available? I'm not overly disappointed at the outcome. Reaching the semi-final was a bit of a bonus this season and we still have a play-off place to aim for. So looking at the bigger picture I think we've actually done well. Saddest thing for me about today was when I read that our former player who scored that legendary goal to get us to the 2015 Scottish cup final didn't even receive a winner's medal! http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47861664
  11. I don't believe I've ever witnessed such an inept refereeing performance at any level ever before! It really was a farce. The only tiny mitigating factor might be the fact that the standside linesman was absolutely no help to the ref whatsoever 🙈 What had been an entertaining game up to the break fell completely flat after it because of the red card 'decision', which should never have been because of the foul that was ignored by the ref just seconds before. Quite unbelievable !
  12. I have no idea what goes on behind the boardroom doors at the club, but it seems to me that these battles have been ongoing for nearly two decades!! What's the reason? Is it purely egocentricity? If so, then that's a pretty pathetic way to behave. This club does not belong to one person nor to one clique! You'd think that after 25 years the club would by now have found a settled method of being run in a sensible, mature way!
