    Next season expectations

    I don't care about what I can eat or if I have to walk through puddles or if the tannoy is ****. I fell in love with Ict and that's that. If fans are persuaded by this type of thing then it's maybe better they stay at home and watch the EPL. The club should be hammering the schools to ensure that the next generation doesn't fuss over 'match day experience' and has passion for the club and the ups and downs that that will bring.

    Same as every season. Players to give 100%

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    Some people aren't getting it. Most accept that moving Gary on was a necessary evil. However what is disappointing in the nature and manner of the exit. He was a player who went above and beyond his duties. He was our club captain. He therefore deserved a bit more respect rather than forced out the club via the backdoor with a shoddy statement.

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    Whilst I could understand the decision. I cant accept this is the best Gary is going to get from the club after his commitment during his time with us.

    The Pre-Season Thread

    Tickets should be £50 each and all gate receipts should be used to build a statue of handsome Graham Shinnie lifting the beautiful Scottish cup outside of the stadium.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    I like this team. Perhaps swap Warren with McKay if he's still here. Calder, White, Mackay, Chalmers, beith making up a strong bench. Until we get injuries of course

    Championship 2018/19

    Different if he was sent on trial to Raith Rovers. I presume Hearts were interested and asked if he could go down for a week during the winter break. I see that as the club not standing in his way on his own progression. I don't fall for this poor Jake routine. Every time he performs well he improves his chances of getting an improved contract with a bigger club. It would be unfair if he wasnt allowed the opportunities to perform, or was left out the team despite good performances. Neither of these are true. Jake's destiny is in his own hands. He has a fabulous opportunity at Hearts who are severely lacking in wide players with pace. Will he take it, time with tell. Going by his time with us, I doubt it.

    Championship 2018/19

    I presume it is a reference to his petulance at Falkirk stadium which was of little help to his teammates, fans or club. Some mini strops as well as head drop moments if things didn't go his way have led to this assumption. Which is fair enough.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    A friend of mine who is a Stirling supporter said he is probably quite similar to Austin. Although being quite tall he much prefers the ball on the deck, quite direct with decent pace. Quite happy with the signing, hopefully it clicks for him here.

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    No-one said super wages. Obviously assumptions are made but assumptions are based on educated guesses. The fact that he has been at the club for several years, renegotiating contracts whilst he was a key player and the club were earning/spending much more. Also the fact the club hinted his wages could be used for 3 players. What are your assumptions that he wouldn't be the highest earner or at the very least, one of the highest earners at the club? Oakley and bell are kids. They would have been relatively cheap I would imagine. Trafford, not so sure.

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    This is purely speculation but I presume with the players who have left/loaned out, that Gary is perhaps the biggest earner by some way (no fault of his own). If he is not a stand out player and perhaps not a guaranteed starter then you could imagine other players you are performing well may be phoning agents to request parity to GW earnings if not more. The club have perhaps used a self preservation tactic to prevent this, it needed to be done publicly so the rest of the dressing room know the situation. The board want the wage level reduced and the squad earning similar amounts. Again this has no evidence base, just some thoughts bouncing about my coupon .

    The Pre-Season Thread

    We deserve better? Careful with that phrase. Entitled Rangers fans like to use it. Not the kind I would like to be drawing comparisons with. Take your point though, think most fans agree its a bit dull for both them and the players. I get the point that these are purely fitness exercises but mixing up the opposition wouldn't do us any harm. Club could argue it gives fans opportunity to watch the games and keeps the costs down.

    Unearth is the wrong word, however they were unwanted at their clubs and Robbo took a chance on them. Coll has been on a bit of a downward spiral for a while now, but has been outstanding for us.
