  1. Interesting, I seem to have stumbled into The Daily Caller section of this website.

    New ICT Podcast

    Latest podcast is out now with a chat around the last few months including a look at the comings and goings from the club, who will make the step up from our crop of youngsters and a chat with First Team Coach Barry Wilson. https://thewynessshuffle.podbean.com/e/barry-wilson-and-the-speculation-society/
  3. No worries Robert. I have banned you from the site though just to be on the safe side.
  4. No one seems to have mentioned this but the P & J reported that the 22nd of November was being looked at as the date for this game although they still need to confirm what ground the game will be played at.

    New ICT Podcast

    @RedCard spoke to all round lovely chap Gary Warren to pick his Best XI. Plenty of ICT names feature and there's a couple of good stories about some of the players as well thrown in for good measure. https://thewynessshuffle.podbean.com/e/best-xi-gary-warren/ Also available on places like Spotify, Apple, Google Podcasts etc.
  6. Of curse we still have to sort out the Duncan Shearer tournament...
  7. TBF anyone playing that game getting over 4 would probably be doing well. It was utterly horrendous.
  8. Safe to say he's not exactly covered himself in glory so far but he was pretty ropey when he started for us.
  9. I'd be surprised if he's ever going to be fit enough to get near the starting XI.
  10. He also fits our budget in that he is available for nothing and we can pay him slightly more than nothing to sign for us. I don't think he is very good but the reaction to this signing is a bit OTT. I'd probably have him as our third choice CB behind Deas and McHattie.
  11. I got an email today saying my shirt has been dispatched. Looking forward to struggling to fit into a medium in a few days...

    He played as a striker in the top flight with support from Ryan Christie and others. Now he is played wide right where he struggled during his time at Aberdeen and Partick. he did play up front for us last season against Dundee in the league or League Cup (I forget which). Didn't have too much of an impact but maybe worth trying again.

    This assumes that we don't move anyone on. If we get the chance to jettison players like Mckay to improve the defence (which already needs strengthening regardless) or some of the lacklustre forwards we have then we should take that opportunity. Robbo isn't perfect but the transfer market is an area I trust him so if he can bring someone in but it means we need to move a player on then we should absolutely do it. We should always be looking to upgrade the team and get rid of those no longer worthy of a place.
  14. A rumour that Shaun pedalled come through Lazy assumption based on the fact he's played predominantly as a CM - he is a replacement for Trafford.

    Betfred Cup

    There has been a MEWP doing work on the Hibs ground recently. Might ask them if I can borrow that for later in the year
  16. The memory usage with Chrome is getting even more ridiculous now. Might return to Firefox or look at something else altogether!

    Betfred Cup

    As I said above even though the draw is predictably dull, save for East Fife potentially away, if fans can't get in I am happy with that as I won't be missing out on any decent matches. I've already been looking at Google Maps to see if you can stand outside the ground to watch a game at East Fife
  18. The games have been postponed. https://spfl.co.uk/news/coronavirus-joint-response-group-10-august-2020

    Betfred Cup

    One good thing about the group is that we don't have a Premiership side in it. Those teams you'd imagine will be fully up to speed by the time the rest of us pull on our boots for the first time. Everyone in Group A is starting "cold" to come extent.

    Betfred Cup

    Thank f'ck we've been drawn with Raith again. only the third year in a row that's happened and now we get to play them in the league as well. Third year in five we face Cowdenbeath and of course we've got Hearts in this competition as well as the league. Utterly dull. And if East Fife is away I'm going to be raging as that's one of the few grounds I have left to visit in Scotland...
  21. Hello, I was trying to filter fixtures on this page to see who we had planned in the League Cup and on Chrome the list won't filter but it will do on Edge. https://caleythistleonline.com/team/fixtures.html/ Just flagging it up. Cheers!

    Betfred Cup

    It's because of the seeding. The following teams are seeded first for this competition: St Johnstone ,Ross County, Hibs, Hearts Killie, St Mirren, Hamilton and Livingston. Of these eight teams the four most "northern" teams are the first four so that's why the two Edinburgh sides are in the "north" section.

    Betfred Cup

    Given that fans are unlikely to get into these games and the club are likely to treat them as friendlies I'm hoping for the most boring draw possible full of rubbish away days and teams we have played, or will play, way too many times over the next few months. Saint Johnstone and then any three from Raith, Cove Rangers (only at home), Peterhead or Cowdenbeath.
