  2. Couldn't agree more. I would much rather see a team of local lads that want to play for Inverness, rather than just seeing us a stepping stone. This was a line up from Hearts pre-season July '03. 1 Mark Brown 2 David Proctor 3 Stuart Golabek 4 Robert Mann 5 Stuart McCaffrey 6 Russell Duncan 7 Richard Hart 8 Steven Hislop (Anthony Kevin Low 78) 9 Paul Ritchie 10 Roy McBain 11 David Bingham Grant John Munro 32 Christopher James Finnigan 33 Lewis Craig MacKinnon 34 Michael Alan Fraser What a team! Many of the guys from that team (most of which are local to us) have stayed/did stay for a number of years. 5 of that squad are still with us, include rossco too. 3 are too old to still be playing and 3 didnt make the cut I guess. Both keepers, Caff, Hart and Hissy moved elsewhere to better themselves or get a regular game, and none of them could really be blamed, as all of them served the club well for a number of years. Contrast that to Saturdays game- Esson, Tokely, Bulvitis, Munro, Golabek, Cox, Eagle (Rooney 76), Duncan, Foran, Sanchez (Imrie 71), Hayes. Subs Not Used: Proctor, Stratford, Allison. How many of our new signings really care about ICT, and how many would hang around if we were successful (or unsuccessful?!)? Not one up and coming highlander amongst them Please do not confuse this with racism, I have no particular problem with most of these lads being English, my problem is that most of them do not really seem to care, which makes the team a lot harder to support at time like these.
  3. I am just really really embarrassed that we have signed a county reserve after selling them our two best prospects at the end of last season. Nightmare. Fair enough he is a legend, he scored our first SPL goal, but I cant see what he will contribute now. Maybe the striker we need will be Dunc Shearer?
  4. I was raging at Butcher today. Tokely and Mihaduks- why were they not in their right positions? Why take McBain off who has experience as a defender and put on Duncan there? Why take off Morais? Why sit back like that from 60th min to their goal we never had the ball for more than one pass.
  5. I think he probably felt like it after the great support he got from the fans at Hamilton after the abuse he got from their fans. He was the last Caley player left on the pitch against Hamilton applauding us.I really don't care where he is from, he clearly appreciates us and if he feels at home here- I think thats a pretty good thing! I loved Hissys vest and duckesque running style. He was class.
  6. Thats a great post. I do not want to see any more former players playing against us and doing well.
  7. As seems to be the case in most threads. Lets bring this back to Craig Brewster. Cowie signed, was good for a season and now he's not so good. I blame Brewster. I just dont think he can get the best out of anyone or motivate a team. I hated watching the match on Saturday and seeing that none of the players really tried to get anyone else pumped up as we started to go behind. What I would like for Christmas is a new manager and Cowie to stay. People are saying that it wouldnt be a big loss, but he is a quality player who can score goals, and we have no replacement for that yet.
  8. This may be a silly question, but can I just show up at Ibrox today and pay at the gate or do I need to have bought a ticket already? cheers.
  9. I think thats really quite a silly idea. I said it was a controversial thought, but I would be genuinely interested why you think it's silly, you have dismissed the idea but have not said why. In no order in particular... 1. The old firm have a youth set up too, both of which have produced club captain and several 1st team players. 2. We dont have an automatic first shout on ALL local promising youngsters. And they wont be free. 2. Vigurs 2. Would you rather a 19-20 brought up by Alec Cleland and the support of an SPL club or by Clachs/Nairns/whoevers youth system. 3. Wood 4. It's an important part of the community I'm sure. 5. Duff. 6. Money will not necessarily improve the first team's performances. 7. A player brought up by the youth squad will know the score, will find it easier to fit in, and will hopefully be loyal. This is not to say that poaching players isnt important, but we can and are doing both.
  10. I think thats really quite a silly idea.
  11. Aye, nice one. :thumb04: I didnt say he looked much better today. He did look a better player, hungry and in the right places, getting the ball in a position where something might happen. I'm all for players coming through, I think its brilliant to have the option of three up and coming players. Today we had three better footballers on the bench.
  12. I don't know why everyone has disagreed with this post. Maybe it's because we share a love of Rosco throught thick and thin(as it was today) that we can see sense! I haven't been to a Caley match yet this season and so have seen very little of the three mentioned players before. I was pretty excited about them befrore the match after what had been said about them. Duff looks like he might come good, however, what is wrong with Grant Munro, the club captain? If i remember correctly he is pretty useful, and in my opinion should be one of the first on the team sheet. Vigurs was anonymous except for a massive bumbling run where he lost the ball twice whilst running the width of pitch before putting out for a throw in. Imrie came on and looked a better player. Wood looked OK, but Barrowman looked better. My father burst out laughing when he was awarded man of the match... I hope this was an off day for these players as on the strength of today's performances the three alternatives should have started, no question. Erm...The players on the bench?
