  1. Firstly, Ross I wish you well in your new role and hope you make a success of it. I have liked the way you have engaged with the fans on here in your first couple of weeks. I’m not sure how I would feel in contributing even more money to the club. I have been an ICT fan for 25 years and a Thistle fan for 10 years previous to that. I’d say I’ve probably had a season ticket for on and off for about 25 years of those 35. I will have contributed thousands of ££ in tickets, merchandise, car parking, food and drink at the stadium plus at the social club and wider throughout Inverness and Scotland for away games. Why would I want to contribute even more in addition to that? Why should fans of other clubs pay what we pay but get Premier league football, new signings, good catering, nice stadium, not seeing all their best players leave, positivity. But we don’t? It’s not my fault all the supporters and money have all slipped away. It’s the job of the people in charge of the club to keep the fans engaged and look for constant new investment. This hasn’t happened, clearly. I’ve kept my side of the deal. That said, personally I am willing to give this new board a chance. I feel it has a willingness to recognise there are big problems that need addressing. For any additional investment from fans though there needs to be tangible benefits. Wether that be free hospitality for a game or even a discount at the catering outlets. Just something. We can’t just be taken for granted all the time. Robbo blaming the fans the other week was a big own goal for me. Rather than moaning about them he should of been thanking them profusely for turning up and keeping the club going when so many others have turned away. Also, I’m not sure how I feel about using any additional money from fans to give to players wages. I feel in general that footballers wages are completely out of control and that filters down to our level. I’m not sure how I’d feel if I was contributing extra money each month and that money was going to guys on good contracts playing in the Scottish championship, who then disappear when another club with even more money turn up. These guys are probably earning more money than some fans and it doesn’t feel right to me. Ross, it’s not easy and you have a hell of a job on your hands, but I wish you every success with it. I probably would contribute a little extra if you follow through with positive changes.
  2. You’ve only been registered on the site for 19 days so I can’t imagine you have had that much of a traumatic time. Back on topic, this result is not a surprise. The draws that we were hoping to turn into wins have in fact turned into defeats. With an improving Falkirk and Partick then we really should be looking over our shoulder. At this time I’d be staggered if we made the play-offs. Disappointing season to say the least.
  3. This topic has been done to death but there was and still is a lot more going on behind the scenes to simply say ‘yogi wasted all the money’...... fact is, we are, where we are now. There are far more pressing problems now than worrying about things that happened 3 years ago.
  4. Having a quick look on google, there is an ex-Warrington striker who is 25 and has been of late at the Jamie Vardy V9 academy. His name is Jamie McDonald. I’d guess it’s him.
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/30592297 The same Brian Graham. The guy is an absolute tool and should have got 2 reds on Saturday. One for the initial elbow and the 2nd for punching Rooney.
  6. I’d rather we keep him certainly, but he’ll get replaced and we’ll carry on. Can’t blame him for wanting more money. But, there is a very slowly unfolding car crash in Dingwall at the moment. McGregor has had to cover 2.5million in the last 2 season and now they are relegated. Less crowds, astronomical wages, large squad, less sponsorship/tv money etc. If , as some people suggest they are going to gamble and throw everything at getting back up, then if they don’t what sort of position will they be in then? Rumours floating about suggest that mcgregor has been advised numerous times to step back from it. Even he can only afford to lose so much. The thing that amazes me, is that the County fans don’t appear to be remotely concerned. Having been in a false financial position for so long and their laughing at our problems has probably led to the assumption they are untouchable. They certainly aren’t.
  7. Maybe we could team up with a business who need loads of admin staff on eye watering wages. Someone like, just picking a company completely at random, like the ‘global energy company’ for example.
  8. Some folk are starting to sound like old firm fans. If it wasn’t for the refereeing conspiracy we’d be in the champions league!! The fact is, the league doesn’t lie. However admirable this run has been recently the damage was done earlier in the season. Some dreadful results near the start. We’ve had the ability to get into the playoffs, even challenge at the top. But too many poor performances, especially after losing the first goal in games have done us in for this season. Discipline was also questionable for half the season. I’d be optimistic for next season though, if we can keep the vast majority of the current squad. But we’ll have to wait and see what we can afford. It isn’t looking good in that regard either sadly.
  9. VAR, more officials etc etc. Yes, the refereeing isn’t great at times but the players don’t help at all anymore. Constant diving, cheating, claiming, time wasting, feigning injury, screaming. How Lewis Morgan wasn’t booked on Saturday i’ll Never know. But no wonder the ref’s get conned. Its cheating the fans ultimately and that’s the worst part.
  10. I don’t agree he should have been booked but I think Vigurs was booked for giving verbals after getting off the ground. If you consider he’s been pushed to the ground and the queens player has given as good as what he’s got, then perhaps that should have been 2 yellows for him. But it’s much easier for the ref to give a card each. For Donaldson, the ref spoke to robbo not long after the incident. I’m fairly certain that afterwards robbo turned to kellacher and said ‘studs up’ while shaking his head. But I might have that wrong.
  11. Some of the referees have been woeful. Home to st mirren and away to Morton spring to mind. But there’s no conspiracy. The players are the ones constantly diving, pulling shirts, claiming for everything. That’s the way the game is now and when that is happening for 90 minutes In just about every game then referees are going to get things wrong.
  12. Unfortunately this is what football in general has now become. It’s just business now. The game has been hijacked by already rich business people to make more money. Forget about the fans. They don’t matter anymore.
  13. I agree with most of what you say except ‘holding the club to ransom’, that’s pretty poor I think. I can’t imagine Dave has been anything but reasonable in most contract negotiations and doubt he is earning a fortune. He is probably a lower spl/1st division wage earner and would most probably take a further slight drop. But if it’s not financially viable for him to take a drop of what we’re offering then that’s absolutely fair enough on his part. He’s made it clear he wants to stay without making a fuss about it. Unfortunately we’re not in the position to offer him what he’d like (and deserves). He goes with best wishes and total respect for what he did at the club. I hope he gets a good club down south and gets the coaching badges he wants as well.
  14. The referee, the referee, the referee. Bottom line is We didn’t take our chances when we had them and couldn’t score any goals. If we’d played for another 4 hours on Saturday we still wouldn’t have scored. Mckendrick was poor but sadly you have to accept that’s part of the game. Vigurs should’ve been experienced enough after a very dodgy 1st yellow to not put himself in that situation. Samson took a chance and it paid off for him. He got our player sent off. He should’ve gone too but got away with it. St Mirren did a right number on us throughout most of the game. Almost all our players got wound up by McShane and they all fell for it. In regards to mckendrick I actually think he knew he got the penalty decision wrong then fell apart after that. I thought Robbos interview was totally embarrassing as were some of the ‘official’ tweets after the game. We sounded like very bad losers.
  15. Deserved win. Solid defensively which makes a huge difference. Chalmers strolled through the game, smokin joe. There’s not a chance we’ll be near the bottom of the table come May.
