    Scottish Cup Pitch Flag

    I've also put this question up on social media but thought it would make for an interesting discussion in here as well. I have the Scottish Cup pitch flag gathering dust in a cupboard and have been talking to some people about what would be the best thing to do with it. The two main suggestions were that...I should auction it as a complete flag....or that I should cut it into sections and frame them so lots of people can get a piece of it as a memento. As I said, it's gathering dust at the moment and I fear that if I sold it on as is, it would just end up gathering dust in someone else's house. It's a proper heavy duty canvas type flag material, so it's not the sort of thing that's going to be easily carted around or taken in and out and there's every chance that the weather would not be kind to it. That's the reason I am entertaining the idea of chopping it up because I would rather lots of people had the chance to get their hands on a piece than it ends up going missing or getting wet and rotting in a bag somewhere over time.

    "Afford" is often used in a very subjective manner; especially in scenarios like this. I don't believe for a second that Jake would have been demanding/commanding a wage which was not affordable to the club, but I do accept that the manager/club decided that he wouldn't have given them acceptable value for money...even if I do disagree with it.

    What I'm saying is that I think Jake would have been worth holding on to....nothing more, nothing less.

    Having completed my Life Coaching Diploma at the end of last year, I was interested to see that Jake is now working with one. I still think the lad will go on to decent things and regardless of the whole Beith thing, would have been worth holding on to.

    There's a special place in hell for people who take the piss out of Ross County fans. It's the away end at the Global Energy Stadium.

    Scottish Cup Pitch Flag

    The letters were at the club. They were a foam board construction, so may not have survived long if stored anywhere damp. For those suggesting I give the flag away. I'll never, ever recover what I have invested in it and the club has already had my "donation".

    19 years. Yikes.

    I was working in Edinburgh at the time and got a lift through to the game from a Celtic supporting colleague who was confident they were going to put at least 5 or 6 past us easily. The return journey didn't go so well and I was turfed out of the car for winding him up 😂 Remember thinking that was it, that was as big as it was ever going to get for a team like ours. You'd have been laughed at for suggesting that one day we'd go on to win the Scottish Cup. Shameless plug for my Canvas Prints of Caley Stadium - 15% Discount today - http://bit.ly/ictstadium

    When people stop attacking the poster instead of the post/point, then I might feel more inclined to contribute more 😘

    ICT SUPPORTERS TRUST : AGM ADJOURNED

    I'm quite happy to sing a few songs or read a bit of poetry if people wish to be entertained.

    ICT SUPPORTERS TRUST : AGM ADJOURNED

    Neither the Q&A last night, nor the opportunity for fans to attend a similar event with Robbo at the club last week, could have been considered "only for the elite". It would be interesting and useful to get your feedback on why you think this may have been the case. No formal notes/recording of last nights Q&A were taken, but there's nothing stopping those in attendance sharing if they wish to do so.

    Average attendance is a tough figure to use when gauging home support as the visiting fan numbers will be higher in the premiership....and Ross County will be helping the average this season. The largest factor in our fluctuating average attendance was away crowds...certainly in the last 10 years...however these were partially offset by a slow but steady growth in home support. From memory, the CEO told us we currently have fewer than 1400 ST holders, although no idea how many of those will be free kids tickets or what the breakdown is.

    ICT SUPPORTERS TRUST : AGM ADJOURNED

    Due to insufficient numbers, tonight's AGM was not quorate and the meeting has been adjourned until Thursday 13th December, 7pm at the ICT Social Club, Greig St, Inverness. This meeting will go ahead regardless of numbers, with those in attendance being considered a quorum. The Q&A went ahead with Robbo who was as candid as always and give some great insight into the playing side of things at the club...our thanks to him.

    Something I feel most people are in agreement with. What's being discussed is why? What's caused/causing that difference? We've just demonstrated that even when results have been poor and the consequences potentially dire, the fans still rallied back then. In fact, it was the catalyst to our rise towards our best ever league performances, a Scottish Cup title and European football. It's not exactly been apocalyptic since Robbo came in, far from it, but even a 25 game unbeaten league run has failed to generate any real optimism. Why did fans do that then and not now? Understanding that might provide some insight into how we go about reversing the current trend.

    We won one of our last five games the first time we got relegated and three of the last four the second time. Based on what you say, the optimism should have been greater...especially as we'd done it before.

    We were only 3 points worse off the last time we got relegated, so why not the same widespread optimism?

    What did they base that expectation on?
