    Jake Mulraney

    Jake was let go for more than one reason but it was his own lack of professionalism that sewed the seeds of inadequacy about his career at ICT.. His on- the- field tantrums belied the fact that he was probably not as wonderful as he felt about himself. And screaming and shouting , kicking things, etc., was quite unacceptable and eventually would probably have brought accusations that the club were allowing this kind of very unprofessional stuff to take place uncontrolled. He's really young though isn't he, so once he gets established both he and his mouth will probably learn that often discretion is the better part of valour. Or, in my past business activity, as one upstart young male employee of mine told me as I fired him for refusing to carry out my instructions about how to do a job, and was lambasting him for not doing the work at all, in the process jeopardising the retention of a very valuable business contract... "you will get more with honey than with vinegar, Scarlet! " Or must we remember .."Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings come forth words of wisdom." ?

    Russia - The World Cup

    Well that's all folks! Last night I was watching International rugby "seven's" on the tele and Scotland vied for supremacy against one of the African teams whose big and very speedy forwards bedazzled the Scottish team by scoring 4 goals to nothing by half time . By half-time It looked as if Scotland were about to suffer a terrible defeat. Then the revolution started and Scotland really turned it on in the second half demonstrating great passing, and left the other team standing with brilliant run after run and ended up scoring a ton in the second half. They got their last, and winning, goal in the very last few seconds of the match when the ref awarded a try after consulting the beaks and the T .V. What a match! And what a transformation in their play. And for their first half display of power, swift passing and electric pace all credit to the black boys. Oh and they did score another goal in the 2nd half which reall6y put the cat among the pigeons and made for a tumultuous finish. And I did not see any bad fouls or deliberate attempts to injure one player.

    IBM..😀 But you are an oldie aren't you? Remember when we did not even possess any kind of phone, like in the 1950's. Nor a T.V. Nor a bike. And a bus ride to the Academy cost me a penny . And I got in to the Caley Park at Telford Street for 6 pence. And a poke of fish and chips was about 6 pence to one shilling. Goodness, how I miss those days …………...😎

    Hearts field ineligible player against Cove

    A professional football club cannot make a mistake like this and get away with it. Nor should they. It may be a diddy cup for them but for their (usually lower level) opponents it may be a crucial blow to their future success and inflow of money. And Hearts should have known better and made sure that they showed an example of the necessity of a higher ranked club to lead by example. At worst, pretty sloppy. Tar and feathering indicated.😯

    Yes Mantis, Jordan is an interesting player and his height gives him an advantage with a greater eyesight field of view …..smile.

    Er, um Caleyboy You are never too old when your heart is in it.Scarlet does his 6 miles on the bike every two days to strengthen and assist with the healing of his badly injured left knee on the ski slopes many years ago. As you age these injuries can drag you down unless you ignore them and work them hard. Well that's my philosophy and it works for me since one fall can really get you down and almost out unless you fight it and force the blood to go to where it is needed. Willo may be slight but he has the great attitude that makes him a winner. Put him in the team and, heh presto, the Flood gates at the goal line may open wide. Yes! Smile.

    Liam Polworth

    OOPS! Polworth may be turning into Poldark. .Let's give the guy a break and concentrate on the team performance this year. Why? Because it's going to surprise a few folks......

    I've always liked Willo Flood. But Isn't he getting to the age of "being a wee bit past it"? Silky player with a good shot on him for such a slim man. If he is fully fit would be an asset to the team I think. Comments please?.

    Liam Polworth

    Interesting! Polly took my eye as a youngster when he was first introduced into the team. I respected and admired his determination and drive. Haven't seen him lately of course but it looks as if his technical ability is still good and I wholly agree that if he accrued more support he would , and could, be a dynamic player. Enthusiasm and determination is vital to success and, instead of crucifying Mr. P, I suggest you all get behind him 100% and shout and show encouragement. Cheers from the Wild West...….

    Scotty , All noted with interest and especially that adjustment for the" Unread" situation which I was unaware of. Putting this site together must have been a really taxing and time consuming process but at least you have the comfort of knowing you succeeded beyond your wildest..... It's possible that you may be interrupting your holiday and dealing with irritating people like members of the Pimple family must therefore be a real bore. I know , I have to live with them as well! Undoubtedly they have their faults but their hearts are probably in the right place so onward and upwards, Sigh? And thanks for the effort. Re the cookies removal I am not quite sure what you are actually referring to since I am well aware (and have been for some time now) that removal of cookies is not the best thing one can do and had already set CCleaner, the only cleaner I use on my computer, specifically not to eliminate cookies by blanking out the boxes for them alongside all the other stuff on offer for cleaning listed beside both Edge and IE11 respectively. Meaning that they should NOT be cleaned during the scan. So, hopefully that is not actually happening but, with computers, who knows?

    Up to now I have invariably gone straight to the Unread Topic link to find the majority of the information I needed to quench my interest in the Forum. But sometimes there is nothing showing in that area for weeks on end making me wonder why, and/or whether or not, this part of the Forum had been terminated and eliminated. I once asked about this but never received an explanation. At that point I then started to try to find articles or references from clicking on the headings at the top of the first page I am directed to upon arrival on the site e.g. Home, Forums, Team, Features etc.. Usually that did not solve my problem. Then jumping over to the right hand columns to open any headings that looked likely to contain the information I needed to assuage, or take, my interest. The feeling I was left with was that this seemed to be an awful lot of work just to access current daily news of events, team scores, reports etc.,. taking into account that this site is a very busy one indeed with a great deal of very interesting information on offer... Which, in turn, made me wish, even long for, an Index where one could very quickly click on the desired topic, etc., and find whatever one was looking for immediately. At the same time It might also cut down on the extent of the material that currently shows on several areas/pages upon first access to the site as well. Otherwise, it's clear that a great deal of effort and dedication has been put into this site over many years and I would not miss my daily visit for the world. I look forward to it every day.So, much appreciated and thank you very much indeed to every one involved with the site directly. Scarlet.

    The Pre-Season Thread

    The list shows a guy named Ridges at the top of the list. Should that not be Ridgers? Smile.

    I don't think that anyone needs to walk on eggshells because the use of vulgar language or profanity to describe someone, who clearly cannot fight back, is hardly something to be admired or promoted. A straight clean comment is all that is needed to express your feelings IMHO.

    OCH! and OCH! again. Jock, good to see that you are not wholly satisfied with the rocking chair. What can you do with them thar younger fellas that make fun of our older, MORE EXPERIENCED, members eh? O.K back to the pipe and hiking boots then. Sniff.

    Kieth Game

    Aye! and showing him encouragement to boot. Good thinking that man. You know, it's so funny, I have never seen Trafford in action but his name flashed in front of my eyes (before I had even come to reading the post above).as a possible captain. Experienced and willing to stand behind and help his players. Could be a good leader and motivator, yes? Thoughts please on this one?

    Why would a relatively disinterested fan base want to help the Board at all? It does sound as if additional entertainment could be introduced, at least for the kids,, at half time to entertain the families in the area. Haven't got a clue myself, but what about a slide for the kids --they climb up a small flight of stairs and slide down. Where would they put it, or them? If it is sectional what about right in front of the stadium at half time together with a wee fence between it and the road for the safety of the kids from the traffic. Daft? Why? Has anyone EVER tried it? this Board MUST think of something, or somethings, original and show the Inverness public that they are really interested in the customers' experience(s). The product on display is currently insufficient to induce a full house so add to the fare on offer I say. If the great unwashed public don't want to come to see the football then it's either the prices are too high, or the overall entertainment value for them is not worth the effort. Their family is very important to the fans and attempting to provide something different and special for the weans seems to me to be a no- brainer. How about a wee race round the pitch for different ages for the kids with a decent prize at the end of it for the winner of each race. That will bring in the future fans with the possibility that the dads and mums will be impressed by the atmosphere and get quite a kick out of the whole affair. PLUS the winning kids might like to get involved with the team and turn into great future prospects.Why not?--- You just cannot pooh,pooh, anything until you try ! Jeez! The club has to do SOMETHING to stir the interest in the town and if they don't show, at the very least, some enthusiasm and gumption with ideas that they are willing to try out to entertain and attract the public then what do you all think yourself ? If the ideas can flow on here then present them to the Management of the club and offer to assist them in bringing it all together. ANYTHING, ladies and gentlemen is far better than doing NOTHING! Positive comments welcome.... .

    Glover, wonderful photo. I suppose you have a fine camera? And not a bad eye either, eh? Smile. They all look very relaxed and pleased with things. As I said before, I feel this is going to be a dynamic season. Watch this space.....

    Moray Jaggie is on the ball with his above post. Why worry about what the opposition is doing. We have to concentrate on forging ahead. Other clubs have also not had their worries to seek as well. We are not alone when adversity strikes. But it's how we react to that situation that is crucial.. It's about attitude....keep a positive attitude and concentrate on succeeding. Upward and onward.

    Kieth Game

    How do you think Trafford will fit in this season? Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't he sidelined for much of last season.? Yet I see that several of you on this site seem to favor him for a place, even a permanent one, in the team this time around?

    Next season expectations

    JR must start with, and then keep, a strong defence. That will make very difficult for anyone to beat us. THEN we can forge ahead and win the title. I am not kidding - look at the way we surged ahead in the final stages of the season. Unbeatable almost! And I feel that our team for this season is stronger than that of last season, so …...

    Oh well, I think that Alan Simpson is just hoping for the best for this club right through the season. But, if they win promotion, that is by far the real goal of this coming season which, if successful, will be more than enough to prove the point that ICT are BACK IN THE GROOVE......😉...eh?

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    There should ne no doubt that the club must surely have discussed Gary's future with him perhaps over the last few months on an an ongoing basis. The hiring of Gary by the English club seems to have come very quickly out of the blue so no doubt he had maybe also been able to make some "authorised" contacts himself, etc. This way all parties should be satisfied. It's clear that the Board needs to cut expenses and Gary obviously feels that his career is not yet over and that he can be a very useful addition to a lower league club --- a viewpoint with which I can wholly agree. So we should all cheer that a wonderful club servant has managed to find a workable and dignified solution to both the monetary and the emotional challenges that this inevitable parting of the ways must involve. What a servant of ICT he has been though and a big send-off party is perhaps merited at this time.? Best wishes on all fronts to you, Gary, and a very happy retirement whenever you decide on that final resolution.
