  1. Dont know much about this player but he once was held in high regard. Islam Feruz was released by Chelsea back in January. An ex Celtic youth who turned down a Celtic contract to sign up with Chelsea. He has represented Scotland at various youth levels from under 16 up to under 21. Might be worth a look to see if we can ignite the promise he once had. He is still only 23
  2. Does anyone know what Owain Fon Williams is doing now ?. As far as i can see his loan contract ran out at the end of November. He is still contracted to ICT until May 31st next year.
  3. Grim, Woeful, Disjointed and the list could go on and on. The fast decline of this club is so worrying. For a long time now with yesterday confirming what i have said for months. No pace just nothing, No out ball, No width, No urgency, No one willing to take a man on. No movement. I have never seen things so bad at this club. I am now going to leave myself open for criticism but i genuinely can see Peterhead knocking us out of the cup on Saturday.
  4. One thing that has stood out for me both this season and last season is we are so slow all over the park. No one seems to be confident to take a man on with a back pass most of the time preferred. There is so little movement or runs of players to open options up for whoever has the ball. Going back to my opening the pace we play our football is far to slow. When we go a goal behind you expect a reaction and the tempo and attacking to move through the gears but just nothing happens. That is the stand out thing i have noticed for months now.
  5. Very worrying times lies ahead i fear. Forget promotion its just not going to happen. If we can finish away from relegation at this moment i would grab it with both hands. The saddest thing for me is only going back 2 or 3 seasons we had a great team with some great players. Now we have the poorest team Caley Thistle has had for i don,t know how many seasons. A rebuild of the squad has just been done at the club and without a doubt another one is required asap, Well at the end of the season. I think now is the time to start looking for the right players to get this club moving in the right direction again. Have a list ready for the end of the season. Sadly having a good think i honestly cant see many of the current squad i would be confident in taking the club forward again. Sad times and even worse the club has been allowed to go into free fall. The last 12 months is the worse i have seen since the club was founded.
  6. Looking at the comments over the last couple of days it seems Richie is still getting paid by the club. Sadly Richie as manager never worked out and i for one was glad when he was removed from his position. His removal however was left far too late and in my opinion this should have happened after the heavy defeat away to Hamilton. There is talk that Richie will get paid for the length of his contract which i think would still have 3 years or so remaining. This is purely rumour and not fact. If this is the case then surely the club would be better having Richie working in some capacity within the club. His management might have been a failure but i for one still think he could offer a lot to the club and the players.
  7. Could you send me link please
  8. I phoned the club to reserve my seat for Saturdays game. I was told i would have to use voucher in season ticket book. I said that is fine and was then told that i would have to give them voucher before i can get ticket. I again said ok i just want to reserve seat. Was then told no you cant reserve your seat without presenting the voucher so i explained i did not live near Inverness and i could not give them voucher. As i am not in Inverness before Saturday now i cant reserve my seat and have been told it might sell before i can get in and i might have to sit in another part of the stadium.
  9. For the cup game vs Brechin, Does anyone know if you still have to get a ticket for the game if your a season ticket holder ?
  10. Wonder how they will get on playing for 2 teams UK TRANSFER TALK‏ @DrpFootball Follow More Partick Thistle F.C. have announced a double signing today with the capture of keeper Mark Ridgers and striker George Oakley. 3:34 am - 3 Jul 2017
  11. Just had a look at Falkirks website and their season ticket prices etc. One thing that stands out for me if i am seeing it correctly is under 12s are free in all parts of the stadium. Only restriction is max of 4 kids per paying adult. A great way to bring youngsters into the game
  12. Great news, I will also be renewing my season ticket again
  13. I understand from reading this forum that the club has been approached regarding fans unhappiness regarding season ticket costs. Has this happened and did the club ever respond ?
  14. Inverness Caledonian Thistle have joined clubs interested in signing Blair Yule, the 25-year-old midfielder who is out of contract with Cove Rangers, following interest from Dundee United, Arbroath and Peterhead
  15. Current odds for our managers position Paul Sheerin 2-1 Paul Hartley 4-1 Terry Butcher 7-1 Maurice Malpas 7-1 Danny Lennon 10-1 Darren Dods 10-1 Barry Ferguson 16-1 Mark Macghee 16-1 Steven Pressley 16-1 Billy Davies 16-1 John Hughes 16-1 Jim Weir 16-1 Gus MacPherson 16-1 Jimmy Calderwood 16-1 Barry Robson 16-1
  16. I did say i would prefer a new manager but after way Butcher left us i would have John Robertson instead any day of the week.
  17. I think the majority are in agreement that a new manager is needed for next season. Given where we find ourselves this season and just how poor we have been i think the club has no choice but to look for a new manager for next season. Some fans are saying Hartley, A few are saying bring back Butcher but the big question is, Who would give us the best chance of going straight back up in our first season. I would like to see a new manager but out of all our former managers i would not be against John Robertson making a return. I thought we were pretty decent under him. So who is the one that would give us best chance of promotion next season ?
  18. The one thing i find most frustrating this season especially of late is when you listen to other spl managers, Commentators and various other media all are saying we are underachieving. Our team in my opinion without a doubt has been in slow decline for a few seasons now. We have lost some real quality players over the last few seasons. I accept that a club of our size is going to struggle to keep quality players when i say that i mean spl quality players. However when you look at the current team there is still a lot of good players that should have been able to put in far better performances over the season than they have done. Management is where we have been let down this season. Some of the performances that i have watched this season is beyond dire. I said a few times this season you could put Lionel Messi in this team and he would struggle to get a goal. We are a small club that has done some remarkable things over its history. There are many bigger clubs with bigger budgets than ours that have achieved less. Now the Championship is in front of us next season. I know we are not relegated yet but i cant see any hope of us staying up. One of the biggest challenges now lies ahead of us. I think we need to make a big promotion push next season and try and get straight back up. In order to do that we need a new person at the helm to steady the ship and in time get it to make smooth headway. We also need to be very shrewd in the transfer market especially with loans. If we could get some quality loans and make a signing or 2 along the way i think we have a chance of getting of getting back at the first attempt.
  19. There is no way Richie will be in charge next season. If he was i would dread to see the amount of season tickets sales that would be lost.
  20. I agree but sadly i cant see us being able to catch them even if they do
  21. I have heard from a lot of people that they will not be renewing their season ticket next season if things don,t change. With relegation looking nailed on and the prospect of losing season tickets the club could be hitting a serious reduction in funds. Worrying times ahead i fear especially if we don,t get someone with a proven managerial record at the helm.
  22. Get someone to take over the management of the team until the end of the season and re-evaluate at the end of the season. Richie has had his chance but for some reason its has not worked with his record simply abysmal. He needs to go now for the clubs sake and for his own also. I just cant see any logical reason to carry on when it could not be any clearer that it is just not working. A fresh face for last 5 games even if its from someone within the club. It might just give us that spark that has just not been there for such a long time.
  23. The damage is done but we need change to get us prepared for next season. I am sorry but i have no faith at all if Richie is still in charge next season.
