    Exactly this. It's not exactly like what he said isn't true either lets be honest.

    Pretty fair comments from Mulraney. What's going to make you feel like more of a professional footballer - training at a windswept Fort George/IRA or Oriam?
  3. A strangely unconvincing 5 - 2 win. We were slow out the blocks and took a long time to settle. The surface was poor which could be an excuse for some of the misplaced passes but some of the players still look like they need to blow the cobwebs away as there was some sloppy passages of play and a few defensive errors that fortunately weren't punished. All too often the final ball or cross was played behind a team mate or didn't get past the opposition player so it was perhaps not surprise when Cowdenbeath took the lead when Sheerin crashed a fine effort in from the edge of the area. Missed our equaliser as I had to help @alternative maryhill with directions to the pie shop but Walsh got his first competitive goal for the club and then bagged his second when he collected the ball inside the home half and head goalwards before sending a low drive in off the post. A fortunate but welcome lead. We were even more fortunate with our third when a suspiciously offside looking White won a high ball knocking down for Doran and he was able to steer the ball past McGurn. Into the second half and Doran was in the thick of the action again. Heading towards the left hand post he tangled with a home player and went down but the referee waved play on. We added a fourth after McGurn did well to keep out a White effort from only a few yards out but before he could recover Oakley lashed in a fine strike. Not so fine was the 5th goal which again looked like it might have been offside. Trafford hit a low drive from outside the box and it hit Doran who was trudging back out from the previous attack. With McGurn committed to his right the ball then went to his left with the deflection and ICT somehow found themselves 5 - 1 up. Cowdenbeath netted a consolation when Sheerin nabbed his second from close range after Mckay (I think) got into a bit of a mess trying to defend a loose ball. It was almost 5 - 3 when the home side saw their final shot of the game cleared by Tremarco. As I say above the scoreline looks good but it wasn't a great performance by any means. That said, Walsh looked impressive particularly when he appeared through the middle but too often he was stuck wide right. Austin had a very quiet game, very little came off for him so it wasn't much of a shock when he was subbed. Donaldson and Tremarco looked solid enough at the back but Mckay struggled under pressure and Rooney regressed as the game went on. A few days rest now for the players which is probably coming at a good time ahead of the next competitive match against Raith.

    Odd signing. Guess he's meant to give us a bit more steel in midfield instead of Chalmers and Trafford.

    Cove Rangers Match

    I couldn't tell at the game (view from North Stand didn't really show much) but I can see why folk might have been claiming offside. I know

    The second goal was actually very much onside.

    Cove Rangers Match

    Agree with the posts above from Robert and DD. cove created some good chances against us and were unlucky not to have got at least one goal before half time. second half was largely one way traffic and we definitely eased off. Jordan White missed a couple of great chances. Donaldson played well as did Tremarco. Probably works well that each team we face poses a slightly tougher test as we hopefully shake off the cobwebs. Interesting to note that for long periods of the game we played with little width as only Tremarco and Rooney offered anything in the wide areas. Doran spent a lot of the game tucked infield. It wasn't until we went to just having one up front we returned a 4-2-3-1 with Walsh behind White and Doran and Elbouzedi on the wings.

    A lot of seats will be "reserved" in the booking system for season ticket holders.

    The Pre-Season Thread

    The club have taken a fair bit of flak over some of their actions recently but this seems a really good offer on the face of it. I'd like to see them do something like this for all home games as well so folk can have a pint in town if they want then hop on a bus from the city centre around 1430 or 1440 then zip out to the ground.

    Cove Rangers Match

    Somewhat surprised there hasn't been any kind of promotion of this game from the club on social media. No info on prices either as far as I can tell?

    2018/19 League Cup Group Draw

    Based on the prices for the Cove game (as seen through my ICT account) it looks like adults are £10 to get in and I'd guess everyone else £5. Maybe these are the prices for all the games?
  18. The season hasn't even finished and already we have the draw for the opening group stage of the 2018/19 League Cup taking place a week on Friday.

    Tim Chow being looked at apparently. Was rotten for them during his time there by all accounts. Would be a strange signing for me.

    Anyway, I seem to recall that Robertson was saying that if Warren left it would free up wages for 2 or 3 players. So are we likely to see some more arrivals then? That former Rangers lad was on trial but I don't see any other names doing the rounds.

    Replaces Hastings who went OTB (again) without much notice it seems.

    2018/19 League Cup Group Draw

    Have the club announced prices for games yet? Hearts have said that it will be £10 and £5 to get in (Adults and Concessions respectively) which really are excellent prices. Last season all the clubs in the group agreed to the same price so hopefully it can be done again but with just over a week to go until the opening group game I'd like to think the club are promoting the season opener as much as possible.

    Next season expectations

    Realistically, if we don't want to see any more cuts at the club next season, we simply have to get promoted back to the top tier. Another season down here and who knows what might happen. Sadly, if we are to do it, I am not sure we could do it as winners but I am hopeful that we can get 4th place at least.

    If Ross is really an ardent fan of ICT I expect to see him at the Cove Rangers game setting off smoke bombs when our 5th goal goes in.
