    Sack the board!

    Whilst it is true to say people from the club do read this site, and at times do comment, we are not an official communication channel. One of the board directors - who was a site member long before being a director - is inviting questions to his official club email address and saying he will answer or pose those to others. He has already answered some of the questions posed on here so far from kicking things into the long grass, I would say he is mowing that grass to try and make a smooth path ! As they say, dont look a gift horse in the mouth - especially when one of the complaints people have is a lack of communication !

    Sack the board!

    There is a mad obsession on any football forum for sacking the board when things are not going well .... I haven't logged onto the Toronto FC boards yet this morning (dreading it) .... but after going down 4-0 last night in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League to an unfancied Panamanian side and now having to score 5 at BMO field in Toronto next week to progress, I expect to see multiple discussions to sack the board, the manager, the kitman, everyone ... and also to sign about 20 players that people will name to solve the issue of replacing the departed Sebastian Giovinco, Victor Vazquez and Gregory Van Der Wiel ..... its not an ICT thing or a Scottish thing, its a football thing. It happens whether you are a poor club or a rich club, its just the logic and rationale that are different. For me, Kingsmills hit it on the head as quoted below ... you can call to sack the board if you want but before you do make that knee-jerk reaction perhaps you should have a clear idea of what or who you want as a replacement and what they can bring to the table. In ICT terms, after a few years of being ostentatious in some peoples eyes, we are now cutting our cloth to suit our level right now and everything is magnified because we were operating at a higher level until recently. As with Kingsmills, I have my own opinion on the current board based on my interactions with some of the members over the last couple of years but not in 'sack the board' territory just yet !!! I look forward to seeing the shareholder accounts very soon to see if there are concerns over the stewardship of the club. If they steady the ship then look to put us back on an upward path then I have no concerns.

  8. FC Cincinnati are the new boys in MLS this year and given that they play in orangey red/blue vertical stripes, I think over the coming years we might get a glimpse of what our own strips could be like if made by Adidas.... got to say I quite like these although some on here might prefer Atlanta’s new strip ...... https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/02/15/atlanta-united-unveil-new-primary-jersey-ahead-2019-season

    Sack the board!

    Ross. Appreciate the responses so far and for you taking the time to give your own opinion/answers on the questions asked. You have been registered on here for about 10 years, so as a fan yourself and not just a director, you know that most are realistic in knowing we always have challenges and that supporting any football team is a rollercoaster ride, but receiving responses to questions and regular communication is sometimes all thats needed to calm fears and defuse bad feeling when things are tough. Even if the answers are tough ones too. We had a great few years of success so this current malaise is hard to take. I wish you well in trying to turn it around.

    New Partnership for CTO

    CaleyThistleOnline are delighted to announce a new partnership with FansBet. The UK-based gaming firm offer a betting platform with a difference; one summed up by their very apt strap line “About Fans. By Fans. For Fans” which is very similar to our own ethos. Run by lifelong match-goers, they pride themselves as being the only bookmaker which promises to share a generous 50% of their net profits with fans, while maintaining rigorous standards towards safe, enjoyable, responsible gambling. Fans are given the option to select the club they support when registering at FansBet.com; any Inverness Caledonian Thistle supporter who tags themselves to the club and selects CaleyThistleOnline when they join will mean that if their bets win they will succeed in the traditional way and receive their winnings, but uniquely and vitally, any unsuccessful bets can still help us raise funds that we will spend to the benefit of Caley Thistle supporters. David Alexander, FansBet Scotland Ops Manager said “The team at CaleyThistleOnline have some great ideas of how they can raise funds for supporters and I’m looking forward to FansBet playing a part in making it happen.” CaleyThistleOnline founder Scott MacKenzie noted “We were impressed with FansBet’s commitment to responsible gaming as well as their record of giving back to supporters. The partnership brings us an opportunity for a new source of income to support the site, raise funds for fan initiatives, or for donations to ICT related projects. If you are an ICT fan who likes a bet then please switch to FansBet and support us” FansBet are partners with Supporters Direct Scotland and already have many impressive stories of giving back to and empowering fans, ranging from funding away travel, share purchases, backing safe standing projects and many more. You can read some of FansBet’s Giving Back stories on their blog at https://blog.fansbet.com/fansbet-giving-back/partners/fan/ In addition to sharing 50% of their net profits, FansBet will also provide special bets on all Inverness Caledonian Thistle matches. Keep an eye on our social channels and forum posts for the latest odds. Visit FansBet.com to sign up. Don’t forget to select Caley Thistle Online as your branch.

    Sack the board!

    Where did you get a warning? Did you report the post using the reporting system? if not then get down off your high horse. IHE has had more warnings than you have had birthdays.

    Dunfermline -V- Inverness CT

    Ok, I'll bite. Your multiple accounts over the years have all ended in you getting personal with others and dishing it out but not being able to take it in return, then taking the huff, dishing out abuse and buggering off to P&B for a while before coming back and registering a new account all of which are pretty obvious to anyone who has seen you post before. All your other accounts are still there - just marked 'pending' until discussion with site admin. This is a private site, with rules. They are not very complicated ones, and if you keep wanting to ignore them then this account goes the same way. Your choice, not ours. be civil. We do reserve the right to refuse or revoke membership to the site ... its not a public service so the entitlement you display is unfounded ! If you think there is something wrong with any particular post from IHE or anyone else then use the reporting mechanism in place instead of hijacking the topic. The mods will discuss and make a decision. As the site owner, I can and will say that if you continue to bad mouth site users and try to moderate within topics by throwing out insults then we will simply set your account to post moderation. I have other things to take care of in real life and no time to babysit grown up children.

    TRAVEL DEALS

    Highlighting another travel deal that just came up .... would be interesting to know if anyone ever booked these deals I have posted ! I keep looking for one that goes in the other direction but they seldom come up! This time its Inverness to San Francisco for less than £270 !! San Francisco is great (we went there last year) and if you stay on the other side of the bay, somewhere like Berkeley then Air BnB can be pretty reasonable .... https://www.secretflying.com/posts/inverness-scotland-to-san-francisco-usa-for-only-259-roundtrip/

Inverness to Los Angeles for £271 all-in !!! http://www.secretflying.com/posts/inverness-scotland-los-angeles-usa-271-roundtrip/

    from what I can see its you starting to get personal with others. cut it out now and debate the topic rather than the poster. you have already stated your opinion. let others do the same before preemptively labelling them !
