    Toni Macaroni or Plastic Whistle?

    Fortunately it's not about how their fore-runners behaved over 40 years ago, but more to do with how they play football now! I wonder if Charles refuses to speak to Germans!

    The Pre-Season Thread

    It's all relative really. Back then we would all flock to see teams from a higher league playing Caley (or Thistle!) in a pre-season friendly, and marvel at the higher level of skill on display. Nowadays, though, we're generally in the higher league and watching a team like Nairn County doesn't really have the same appeal. There is of course the lesser attraction of seeing some of our new signings and 'maybes' performing in ICT colours for the first time.

    Confirmed

    I wish Vigurs all the best and am grateful for what he has helped us achieve. I also look forward to the outrage on these forums when he is healthily booed and abused on his return to TCS!
  4. Dunno what everyone is worried about. Isn't Blair going to save us? Soon!?

    Highland Derbies Next Season

    Trying to think how many seasons County finished above us in the grand scheme of things. They were well ahead of us at the end of our first season in the Scottish League, and of course this season and last season. That's 3. I've a feeling there was one more, round about 2012? So I suppose you could say they were the 'Big Team' for four years! Or was it just 3?

    How can I sponsor Caley?

    Quite right Scarlet. There are unfortunately a few posters who take great pleasure from insulting new contributors to these forums. Live and let live, I say!

    A bit of History

    In the mid 60s Elgin City did particularly well, being the only Highland League team ever to reach the quarter-final of the Scottish Cup, losing by a very creditable 3-1 to 1st Division Motherwell. (There were only 2 divisions then - Division 1 and Division 2. Very sensible names!)

    Championship Table

    Admittedly once the input from the "sugar-daddy" is removed there is a sharp return to reality! Presumably there is a bottom to Uncle Roy's pit.

    Championship Table

    Don't think it's an expectation - just a forlorn hope! I can think of 3 Scottish teams - Livingston, Gretna and Ross County who didn't do too badly because they were heavily subsidised by wealthy people who were passionate about their local team. It is the tribal nature of football supporters which can lead them to pay well over the odds for a mediocre "product".

    Message for Supporters : 14/02/18

    Seems an honest enough appraisal of where we are, avoiding negative wording where negative wording might be more appropriate. Like IHE, I also picked out the requirement for new investment as cause for concern, despite the almost positive spin! It seems that running a small club in the upper divisions of Scottish football is unsustainable as a business. At the end of the day, someone has to foot the bill. We need a sugar-daddy!

    Caley Jags 2017/18 squad + changes in/out

    Dingwall is easily within commuting distance of Inverness - a mere 15 miles away. Roy attracts players to the club by telling them they're just outside the city of Inverness!
