  1. Didn't know about that. Was there no opportunity for fans to attend? 😠
  2. Yes, but missing it as I'm still on holiday in Canada. Will be back in time for the play-offs though.
  3. Bombskares the two of them, McKay and Rooney that is.
  4. A decent right back. Not had one since Raven departed. Unless one of the youngsters can fill that gap.
  5. Short, to the point and absolutely how I felt too.

    Semi-Final Poll

    From memory our semis in 2003 and 2004 had low crowds. I think it was just under 8,000 v Dundee on a Sunday at 3pm then 13,500 v Dunfermline with a 3pm kick off on a Saturday. So less than 20,000 v Hearts with the game live on TV doesn't seem all that bad for creating an atmosphere. The lower gate money from this is a bit of a bummer though. I also think that most of the Jambos would more easily get to Hampden from Edinburgh for a 12.15 ko than our fans. 1.30pm at Tannadice or Dens on the Sunday might work better but the other semi ko time would have to be moved to avoid a clash for TV.
  7. Was it not this time last year that we started that impressive unbeaten run? Here's hoping that can be repeated to see us safely into the play offs.
  8. Get a couple of dozen volunteers to unfurl it on the pitch in the pre-match build up at the Global Energy Stadium on Monday night. Then keep it for our next cup final appearance this May.🎺
  9. As said so many times this season, our lack of finishing was our undoing again. Then County did a Dick Turpin on us to steal the three points they didn't deserve. Subs should have been on earlier to give fresh legs.
  10. Says it all for me too. Another insufferable draw was too much to bear even if United dominated for most of the game. Thank goodness we don't have another home game until 5 January.
  11. If it had stayed at a 7 pm ko then I would've made it down to give my support. 6 pm is just too early for me now. Why the late change?
  12. Yes indeed. It wasn't looking too good at 1-1 though when EC had loads of possession and we struggled to get the ball off them. 3 goals in 9 early second half minutes was the best spell in a number of games.
  13. Bad enough being there to watch it but even more depressing having seen the "highlights". Just what was Mark Ridgers trying to do when he fluffed the ball in the box?
  14. Sorry I mentioned it!!! Thought I was being helpful but obviously not.
  15. Looks like cash at the gates, as it is for all their home league games. They are also doing a hospitality package - a curry, rice, nan bread and a pint plus a seat in the stand for £30. Not clear if it's open to away fans though. If it is it might help folk decide on a pre match drinking venue. http://www.edinburghcityfc.com/category/club-news/
  16. It's East Pilton, which is quite a good area. I have relatives in Pilton Avenue on the North side of the ground and hope to park there. If it was West Pilton, then that's a different story.
  17. If tickets required then I'll have a problem getting them, as from tomorrow I'm not going to be remotely near Inverness before this game to pick them up. Hopefully, there will be a ticket booth at Ainslie Park for away fans to purchase on the day. Did I also read somewhere figures of £15 for adults and £5 for concessions?
  18. No tickets are available to the club for this game yet. Hoping to just turn up and pay on the day?
  19. Yip but cif73 is right. Jordan White changed the game when he came on. He was less effective and made things easier for County. Saying that Doran and Polworth should have buried those chances. Hugely disappointed with the result.
  20. Well, well, the change now allows me to go and I had no influence on that whatsoever. 😙 I feel sorry for those who had already made their travel arrangements for the Saturday though. Typical for our fans to get mucked about again.
  21. This is getting utterly ridiculous. We need a loanee or out of contract striker fix now! Makes it worse when Billy McKay rattles in a hatrick for County.
  22. The Abbotsford, Cafe Royal, Guildford all likely to feature in our post Murrayfield 'crawl' that night. Long term haunts of us old gits from Edinburgh. A 24 hour delay if ground given up to Spartans would have suited me fine.
  23. Yes a potentially tough game, although they only beat Civil Service Strollers 1-0 yesterday. I'll be in Edinburgh on 24 November, but for Scotland v Argentina rugby with 2.30pm ko. As I had to go to great lengths to get season tickets for the Autumn Tests I won't be giving up my seat at Murrayfield to attend the Cup game. As Caley Stan says, there are no pubs near the Ainslie Park ground. The Anchor Inn at West Granton Road and Telford Arms might be the nearest but not advised. If I could have made it I would have gone to Spiers at Goldenacre, my old local 35-40 years ago. The Village Hotel at Crewe Toll has the nearest bar but be prepared for boutique hotel prices. The other option is Stewarts Melville Rugby Club if you can get signed in.
  24. The ICA magazine usually distributed to Inverness residents by your local postie. Many recipients will probably just bin it as junk mail. I use it to find out about up and coming music gigs and other events. As you will see from the online version Don just provided the link to, it contains listings of arts, culture and sports events on in the area in the next 4 to 6 weeks and beyond. A scanned version of voucher is attached. There is also a spotlight feature on Charlie Trafford. I've just spoken to the lady in the club shop on the phone. If the voucher is presented in the shop at least 24 hours before the match in question and you ask to buy 2 tickets, 1 of them will be free. It doesn't work for season ticket holders though, i.e. you can't present your season ticket and ask for a single free ticket. ICT BOGOF voucher.pdf
