    Liam Polworth - One Of Our Own - Take 2

    Polworth's ability to break forward at pace was responsible for a large proportion of the goals we scored last season - he was one of the best players in the league. If you want to see someone do that more consistently with better ball control then you'll need to watch a higher level of football.

    I see Polworth as a completely different type of player from Vigurs. His game is based on energy, running, bursting into the final third. Vigurs this season has been all about dictating play from deep, spreading passes around, taking responsibility by showing for the ball in difficult areas. We won't be able to replace that and I think our playing style will have to change as a result - we'll have to go longer more often.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    He's Greek. His mother is Greek Cypriot, and I think the Greeks are very hard working in their own way - just joshing cos the wife is from there. He had the excuse of having played the night before that day, but in the recent midweek game he just strolled around the park offering nothing.

    Even by Greek standards, Froxylias is extremely lazy.

    Morton -V- Inverness CT

    RiG's bang on with that reply. Robbo and the players deserved a show of appreciation for the effort and that's what we gave them. No celebrations, just a big loud display of support. I know Morton weren't really playing, but we were just brimming with confidence throughout the team, pounding them for the first half hour and playing some great football at times. Seedorf, Chalmers, Oakley, Trafford and McKay are all players i've had my doubts about at times this season, but they all had excellent games which tells us how well the team is working as a unit. This run might not have seen us into the play-offs, but it allows us to go into next season with a positive feeling, something that seemed unimaginable just 5 weeks ago.

    We're well covered for Willies on this Forum. Between you and your adversery, i'd say we already have a couple of complete roasters.

    It's very frustrating reading about announcements and rumours and rumours of announcements without a clue what this is all about. It would be nice if folk would share what they've been hearing on this thread.

    Dumbarton -V- Inverness CT

    We were completely dominant without playing very well. Dumbarton were stuffy, even after the goal, and we struggled to find any space around their box. Doran, Austin and Oakley were ineffectual in this environment, but Polly and Vigurs kept plugging away and both created and missed decent chances. The goal brought scenes of joy and relief - you could really see how much it meant to the players. Their work-rate was incredible and they deserve huge credit for this run. From the look on Warren's face when he came off and from the way he was hobbling about in the stand later on, he's not going to be back any time soon. Some folk may be relaxed about this because Brad and Coll generally look solid together, but i'm concerned that we'll be exposed at right-back on Saturday, and in any other big games that may arise after that.

    This is a load of pish. We'll be fine. Might even make the play-offs.

    Inverness CT -V- Dumbarton

    I can't believe people are moaning about the quality of the game - who cares. The atmosphere was great and the ending was perfect. It's been nearly 3 years since i had any fun watching Caley. The celebrations at the end today made it all worthwhile. I loved it.

    Inverness CT -V- Dumbarton

    I've dragged my kids to some dismal away days recently and this was their first bit of football magic. A 93rd minute winner in a final right in front of us. Doesn't matter how bad the football is, there's not much in life that beats that feeling.

    I get the temptation to see games in hand and immediately tot up the maximum return, but what are the chances really? We've got 31 points from 26 games, an average of 1.2 per game. If we go at the same rate for the remaining 10 games then we land on 43, which should see us safe (i think i heard the highest points total to go into the play-offs in the past is 42 but haven't checked). The problem is, we're not in good form, the squad is weaker than the one that started the season and I can't see us maintaining that points return. Meanwhile, Dumbarton have momentum and they've done this before (see Raith). Clearly there's a serious problem with the mental strength of this team - consider our record when we lose the first goal, and look at Robbo's interview after the recent Morton game where i think he stops himself from saying it. With this in mind, I think tomorrow's game is absolutely massive. I feel a little sick whenever I think about it.

    Bucharest to Brechin

    Wish I hadn't been so wasted in Bucharest - i'm told it was a memorable day. Brechin was nice. Shame about the Young Team. I think we'll lose tomorrow and then get relegated. Currently trying to find odds on that outcome.
