    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    The last thing we need is another injury-prone player.

    Confirmed

    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!!!

    Cove Rangers

    Yup - I was disappointed too. Another Highland team that thinks the officials are against them - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44096432 Was also disappointed that Peterhead missed out on promotion after being second in the division by one point, and 22 points and 31 goals ahead of Stenhousemuir. Still, Peterhead had two sent off - clearly suicide when you're already 2-0 down from the first leg. My wife's family are all Stenny supporters, so I'd better not say any more!

    The Royal wedding

    Well, yes and no. There's also the fact that every British monarch - from James VI and I onwards - has been part descended from Mary, Queen of Scots. The Stuarts, the Hanoverians, the Saxe-Coburg-Gothas - all of them! Delicious irony, after the treatment she received on both sides of the border. Though of course you could argue about how British she was, given her childhood in France, and her forebears' tendency to marry fancy foreign wummen! There's a family tree at https://www.britroyals.com/royaltree.asp

    The Royal wedding

    You could break your journey at Hampden, and watch the double treble being achieved. Oh, sorry, you said "overhyped nonsense". As you were!

    Not sure - Austin Healey, Jag XJ6, Jag XK, Triumph Stag?

    I propose we move this thread to "General Nonsense"!

    Recruitment Policy?

    Interesting idea, and well-worthy of discussion. Not quite the same scenario, but back in Highland League days, Jock McDonald sometimes offered a job at Tomatin Distillery to a player whom he was trying to persuade to sign for Thistle. Useful if it was someone from outside the area, with no local connections. If memory serves me right, Ian Cumming, the captain of his first league-winning team, was one such. There may well have been others.

    Live ghost hunt from Tulloch castle Hotel

    I was wondering if it could get us promoted next season Or at least remove the fabled gypsy's curse from the Longman...

    Caley thistle Board

    Is it a pop-up box asking for the user's consent? There's a bit more to GDPR compliance than that.

    Morton -V- Inverness CT

    Not at all - this is what's it's all about!

    Morton -V- Inverness CT

    No Doran - not even on the bench. Is he suspended, injured, or... ?

    Announcement

    We now have five pages of speculation since last Sunday, based solely - as far as I know - on the posting above. The world is crying out for such creativity

    Announcement

    My own preference - not aimed at anyone in particular, or aimed at everyone, if you like - would be "The rest is silence".

    Announcement

    You could look at the pitch and see grass on it! Then peer underneath and see the Longman Aquifer...

    Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    Nope, grass. They have just issued a rallying call: "We need volunteers tonight at the @Dumbartonfc Stadium to help fork the playing surface and clear the standing water to help the chances of the re-arranged fixture, planned for tomorrow going ahead. Time - 6pm - bring a garden fork and/or a soft brush." So if anyone is in the area...

    Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    Send in the OPWC inspectors to look for fluoride in the water Is there another aquifer there?

    12 week minimum ban for standing

    How can you have more than one "minimum recommended" length of ban for a first offence? For example, you run onto the pitch. You are slung out, and you receive a written warning. But is the minimum recommended ban 12 weeks, 6 months or 12 months?

    Tax regime and computers

    No they won't. Payroll systems will just have to have up-to-date tax codes for everyone, as always. See my post a few above yours.

    QOS -V- Inverness CT

    Cheers, Yngwie - I was wondering how close to suspension he is. Is there an online site showing current tallies? I had a quick look but couldn't find one.

    QOS -V- Inverness CT

    Vigurs booked. Only 34 mins today. Wonder how many he is on now?

    Special General Meeting

    There is a registered - and very inactive - company called "Inverness Caledonian Thistle Supporters Society Limited". Company number SP2665RS. Just to confuse things, it is described as an "Industrial and provident society". So I'm not even going to guess which rules apply. I seem to renember someone saying that "Caley Jags Together" is an informal operating name or brand name for this Society.

    Political Correctness off topic stuff

    You didn't "refer" to it, Charles. You insulted another poster with it. Having already made a similar insult when we thought he might be of another nationality. Freedom of speech does not mean being allowed to insult who you want, how you want. I'd have thought that someone who has been employed in the media for many years would have some understanding of that.

    Inverness CT -V- Brechin City

    Would make the calendar more interesting next year
