  1. Sounds like a great idea to me, i can't see what the problem is. We've all seen how well the club(s) has/have progressed since the last merger, i think the next one is long overdue. Ross and Inverness Caledonian Thistle County FC, i can't wait to start supporting them. Obviously we would need to find a new venue to play our home games at to avoid any more unnecessary animosity between County and Inverness fans, maybe Clach Park?
  2. I couldn't really care less about his comments tbh, i seen more emphasis on the, "it only took 18 YEARS" part of his comments. As Confucius said, "a great man is hard on himself, a small man is hard on others".
  3. You make a lot of good points here Dougal, i agree with pretty much everything you have said on this matter.
  4. It's probably fear of sitting next to people like you that prevent a lot of people from coming down to watch us, thus contributing to our dwindling support. I often find myself sitting next to your type at matches, the sort of people who only go to games to vent their spleen and shout and bawl at grown men without the unpleasant inconvenience of getting their head kicked in. Wednesday night was dire, but at least some people are trying to take some positives from it, you seem happy though (for whatever reason) to take Rosco's great performance, one of the only few positives from Wednesday night, and turn that into a negative too. May i suggest you take up a martial art? You obviously have a lot of pent up anger inside you.. or have you sobered up now?
  5. I heard it was Terry's orange that he stole.
  6. I have no problem with long balls when we have players capaple of utilizing it properly, the problem is we don't. There is a big difference as you mention between players like Hoddle and Gullit picking out a player (in space) with a well executed long ball and just constantly punting the ball forward into a gaggle of players in the hope that eventually one of our players will win the ball. We have plenty of good midfield players but the problem is they are largely redundant for long spells during games as the ball is just being contantly hoofed over them.
  7. I don’t know where to start with that performance last night, it truly was bloody awful, abysmal. Easily one of the worst performances of our SPL era and aside from Rosco’s inspirational performance there were almost no positives to take from that game. Tuffey looked confident and assured in goal tonight but as he didn’t really have anything to do it’s difficult to give him anything more than a neutral score for his performance, he at the very least avoids criticism for last night’s showing. A hard worker and a player I have really begun to like (mainly as he makes me laugh at least 2 or 3 times every game) is Golobart who was reasonable too, despite the usual couple of shaky moments he seems to have every game, he, as he always does, put in an effort. Ross Tokely - Brilliant as always. How much better did we look up front when he went forward for the last 5 minutes? Last night I thought for a moment, maybe this is a role he could be very useful in for us since all we do is hoof high balls forward all the time. I quickly realised however that the massive Ross Tokely sized hole that would be left in defence would probably cost us more goals than he would help us create at the other end. Piermayr and Shinnie were at best average. Jones largely seemed to let the game pass him by and looked like he was scared to get stuck in (maybe with his recent injury in mind). Foran has been garbage all season and was garbage last night. Tansey ran about endlessly without contributing anything constructive. Sutherland at times played quite well, he showed willing and a few flashes of talent but every time the final ball was awful. Billy McKay never stood a chance last night, why persist in pumping high balls forward to the smallest player in our team all night. It was obvious from the start (and in previous games) that this isn’t working (why would it)? As far as I’m concerned the jury is still out on McKay but under the current system we will never find out how good he is. Tade had an off day, as someone has mentioned previously he is very much a form player and last night I can categorically say, “he was not on form”. Nick Ross looked good when he came on and should have been introduced earlier. Gnapka – Despite some of the criticism he has come under on here I think he looks like he has the potential to be a very good player, never had time to make an impact and was unlucky with his chance. Whilst I’m a big fan of Terry Butcher and I am more than happy to have him as our manager, it’s obvious the current system is not working and changes need to be made. Listening to his post match interview last night is sounds as though he may be considering this, although he is starting to sound like a broken record as far as this is concerned. We have been horrendously unlucky with injuries this season and undoubtedly would be much higher in the league had we kept a fully fit squad, for this Terry can’t be blamed. We have the basis of a good team and with a little tweak here and there and a fully fit squad I think the outlook for next season looks fairly positive. That said, I am away this weekend and quite glad I won’t have to sit through another 90 minutes of that dross.
  8. I can't bring myself to cast any votes tonight as apart from Rosco noboby deserves anything for that monstrosity of a performance.
  9. If Terry Butcher is offered the England job i will attend the rest of our games this season completely naked.
  10. I think that maybe it's the ignorance of donjo29 that needs a pardon.
  11. This is copied from the Qormi FC's Wiki page under the heading, "Notable players". Stuart Duff was the club's record signing and upon agreeing the deal Qormi F.C. Chairman Mahatma Ghandi expressed his astonishment at securing Duff's services. "After his performances in Scotland, where he scored literally thousands of goals, it is surprising that he chose to play for a club of our small stature. That is the sign of a true gentleman." The £48million signing on fee is a Maltese record to this day.
  12. Aaaawwwww, somebody's tired. Have one from me too for once again clogging up this forum with your inane ramblings. I don't think CaleyD is the pathetic one.
