    He's One Of Our Own

    Can someone clarify what actually happened, Polworth drifted out of the game for a while and misplaced some passes towards the end. Was there an exchange between fans and his family

    Hearts Game

    Poor performance, disappointed at the lack of passion. Naismith at 5'10'' should not be scoring with a header. No one taking responsibility and winning the ball

    Another club statement...

    Guess it was the idiots who came on the pitch after we scored. More pathetic than threatening, the effeminate pitch invader in the red top got a bit of a fright when when the keeper had a go back. Unless something more serious happened club should ignore them, as it just gives them the attention they crave.

    Away fans

    My son used to do work as a steward at both ICT and Ross county. ICT no training grab a jacket and cap and stand over there, only because he was familiar with stadium could he help people. Certainly no instruction how to deal with aggressive fans. County was better given some instructions and told what to do if the was trouble also given a pie and drink in Dingwall.

    Inverness CT -V- St Mirren

    Poor conditions, poor referee and should have won game in the first half, but we carry no threat up front. Getting a goal scorer at our present level is a real problem, would suggest it would have to be a youngster that would move on if successful or an 'old pro' with one good season left in him. However new players cost money and we don't have the finance. Dark days ahead I fear.

    The Ian Vigurs enigma

    I thought he was excellent today, especially in the first half. Also he was very quick to refocus the team following the goal

    Writing on the wall for Kellacher?

    Be interesting to see the outcome once the speculation has ended and the truth comes out. No statement from the club yet which may mean not an easy fix. Can't help but think what would happen in my work if one of the shop floor workforce got physical with a member of lower/middle management. Suspect immediate suspension or possibly instant dismissal.

    New Manager

    I think the club have to quickly decide what they want, an experienced management team who will obviously cost more than an inexperienced team from the lower leagues or first time manager. Personally I would not go for Christie, Wilson or Dods as all 3 are realitively inexperianced for a club that should have aspirations to finish mid table in the premier league. I believe we are at a similar level as say Dundee and none of the three mentioned would be in contention for that job. Money will be the major factor in employing an experianced manager, but possibly a well written contract could sort that ie there would be no compensation due if a bettter job came along. Alex Neil, Peter Houston, Paul Hartley, Alan Stubbs, Jim Duffy, fall into that category. We also need to improve the squad, Craig Brewster was a succesful player manager, and that could be a consideration, (playermanager not Craig Brewster). A biggish name pm might also attract players, looking at players that come into that age/ability bracket there would be pretty slim pickings. Clint Hill, Stephen Thomson, Kris Boyd (all ex-Rangers but all I could think of at short notice). People who are in it for the experiance and not the money. There is also be an opertunity to go completly mad and take a huge risk that might just pay off, what about approaching the like of Paul Gasgoine, cant believe Im actually suggesting it but the publicty and interest generated would be imense and could be capitalised on. The position we find ourselves in leaves no room for sentimentallity and Terry Butcher should be considered and wonder Malphas comming back is a way of testing the water. The Board seem pretty rudderless at the moment would the apointment of a director of football be worthwhile considering, Gordon Smith, Alex Smith, Jim Duffy. Sorry to see Ritchie Foran the person go, he gave his all and hopefully will be remembered as player rather than a manager. His intention was good in trying to develop John Hughes possession football into a more attacking attractive product, but it wasnt to be. To me, as can be clearly seen from my ramblings, there is no obvious answer, but we are what we are. a team that consistantly has to battle to stay afloat, let the battle continue.

    Inverness CT -V- Kilmarnock

    I think Fisher has to be given a chance, pushing Draper further forward to win highballs is not working, I don't feel Draper wins enough for a start. I hope the decision to not play Fisher is a footballing one and not due to any type of falling out, managers need to maintain discipline but not at the expense of SPL football.

    Inverness CT -V- Celtic

    Poor display, but not unexpected, it's the manner of the defeat and the soft goals conceded that frustrates fans. Any team in the league would have taken advantage of the defensive errors tonight. Important to remember it could be worse you could be a celtic fan, their season is over they will win the league easily and it would be a shock if they don't win the cup. We have everything to play for our season could got to the last game. We live for the odd highlight beating the old firm, a good cup run, an away win. Celtic know they are going to win with minimal effort every week. Minor point but was disappointed to see our ball boys wearing celtic tops and scarves tonight. It's not over yet, all to play for , important thing is we are not detached at the bottom and our survival is in our own hands. Hopefully lessons learned and the team move onwards and upwards

    John Hughes has to be sacked ASAP!!!

    Debateable if you are entitled to your opinion if its as moronic as that and quite frankly if the best adjective you can think up is **** (whatever that may be) sums up your contribution. Guess you were one of the 'supporters' today who failed to recognise we had a weakened and makeshift team out today. We have played worse and won, from the start we had people complaining about everything the players did, this negativity does get to the players, Couple of people in the north stand along from me kept a stream of criticism of players and manager probably thinking they were spreading their footballing wisdom but really just showing them to be the fools they are. If you don't want to support your local team through thick and then then get on a bus to Glasgow every second week and depending on which particular scarf you choose you will support a team that wins every week, suggest you pick green for the next 4 year then change to blue, don't throw away your ICT scarf as you will want to come along to the cup final every 10 years or so. We had a great season last year, we are having a more challenging season this year, but that's what supporting a smaller team is all about, So man up, and support the team. Now is not the time to change the Manager, financially we cant compete with many of the teams around us, we are not an attractive proposition for an established ambitious Manager. If we are successful we will lose players and have to be realistic we are a selling and rebuilding team. This does not mean we cannot have moments in the sun, we are the Scottish Cup holders, its March and we are still in the cup, we are established in the SPFL and not in the relegation zone (yet) 20 years ago at the start of this journey this would certainly be seen as positive.

    Inverness CT -V- Partick Th

    I sit in the North stand couldn't believe some of the comments, guy behind me was convinced it was all Hughes fault, and they should hoof it, it seemed to escape him we are in second place in the League and that the day it does wrong he thinks we should abandon the method of play that got us there! . Then this is the same guy who thought the two idiots were justified in entering the field of play approaching the goalkeeper..."seemingly it was just a bit of fun, like the Dundee Utd supporters when they avoided relegation" I couldn't see the connection myself. I would imagine we will face a fine for this behaviour, and so we should, if this had happened at the other end and two Partick fans had approached Dean Brill. Its important to recognise Paul Gallacher's (PTs Keeper) part in this incident, he although initially a bit concerned, once he realised they were harmless idiots did not over react in any way and was a credit to his team. I would encourage the booing 'fans' to keep coming as the team need your money, but it is worth considering as the January window approaches any player who is considering a move may be influenced by your actions if they cant decide to stay or go.

    Inverness CT -V- Kilmarnock

    Three home games this month if I didn't have season tickets would have cost me £189 to get in ( 3 kids + me). Guess cost has a lot to do with attendances, not sure what the answer is

    Last nights singing

    This needs to be stamped out now, I would imagine that people know who was involved in this, name them. I will be asking for a ticket next to the singing section at the next game in Dingwall, and I will 'self police' if this happens again. If people think something like this is wrong, people should take action If in the unlikely event these people every manage to form a relationship with the opposite sex and actually persuade someone to let them reproduce I sincerely hope this never have to suffer this terrible illness.

    Should Hughes be SACKED?

    It's time for the fans to get behind the team. My opinion and not everyone will agree is that Hughes won't get sacked, the Inverness board have to think long term and while Hughes may not be the man for the job, he will be given time to prove himself or not as the case may be. The Inverness job is not the most attractive for an established manager and we are caught in the position where we need an experienced manager to sustain our expectations and try to improve the team. Managers who may be wanted elsewhere will not come to a club that does not give them time. Things have to improve and maybe we the fans have to show the way, I sit in front of 3 people in the north stand, 2 elderly men and a woman who never seem to shut up criticising the team and even laughing at mistakes, then have a go at the manager, at one point tonight I was wondering if I had enough money on me to offer them a refund to clear off (fortunately I didn't). I know that they pay their money and have a right to opinions, as we all do, but get behind the team or shut up, this negativity must get through to the players and confidence can't be high in the dressing room at the moment. We expect high standards now from the players, so let's get behind the team, we have some very young players on the field now and they need our backing. I would hope that Hughes has some contacts in the game who can source some decent, and they will have to be cheap, new additions in the close season. Top six finish and first major cup final, I would have been happy with that at the start of the season, the worry is that this bad form we have now struck will carry into next season. Who knows what will happen, but we are Inverness, we are in the top league, we are top six and we are here to stay. Twenty odd years ago in Inverness we would have been watching Highland League football if we wanted a live match, now we are bitterly disappointed if we don't beat Motherwell that's how far we have come, surely despite this bad patch this can be considered a success.

    Charlie Christie on Sunday

    Many People have to pick and choose their games due to cost of admission, and will obviously pick the "bigger games" if Charlie Christie was complaining about backing from fans it would seem a bit poor as I would not imagine he has paid to watch many games of football.
