  1. Anyone know if tonight’s yellow cards contributed to any suspensions for the Dundee Utd game?
  2. With McCart being left footed, could he be playing LB? That would leave Chalmers to go back to CM.

    Pretty sure he started in the U18s win v Killie less than 24hrs before, scoring 2 goals. Tough shift to travel down to Kilmarnock, play a match, travel back, then after a sleep jump back on a bus to Dundee and start a senior game...
  4. Donaldson and McKay have racked up quite a few yellows this season - could end up with both being suspended at the same time... which would be interesting/terrifying!
  5. At least we have the opportunity to sponsor players like Cole, McNaughton, Brown and Doumbouya... http://ictfc.com/commercial/sponsorship/player-sponsorship Clever move having these sponsorship opportunities available on players that have left the club. Add those potential sales to the unknown sponsorship availability of the current squad and we'll be loaded.
  6. Pretty sure Seedorf missed Saturday through illness rather than injury, from what I remember Robbie saying post match on radio.
  7. It's disappointing that the club hasn't updated the Sponsorship options since last season - http://ictfc.com/commercial/sponsorship/player-sponsorship Missed opportunity to get money into the club at an important time of the season. I've noticed on twitter quite a few Highland league/Junior League doing regular mentions and press releases about their player sponsorship opportunities...
  8. Agree with everything said in the above match report (cut down to save space). A few other things of note... When we play with Polworth as a RM it means we eliminate one side of the attack. Nothing came from that side in the first half, not helped by Raven being reluctant to get forward. Only in the second half when Raven pushed on and Polworth came inside did we get any threat from that side. Polworth' penalty was honking. Chalmers at LB was poor. He was skinned a few times by their podgy winger and didn't make much of an effort to block crosses. Calder did well running at his man, but much like Mulraney he has no end product. He also doesn't communicate at all on the pitch which demonstrates a niavety/rawness that could hold him back. My first impression of Susan is that he'll be punted by Xmas, following months of barren performances. Even watching him warm up was painful - poor first touch, limited pace and no strength despite his size. Draper seems to be playing with the handbrake on. It was noticeable that he was easily able to shift up the gears once we'd gone 1-0 down, where he drove with the ball effectively. Vigurs actually played not too bad in my opinion. All his passes went forward and he created several decent chances. The abuse is getting to him it seems though... where he issued a hand gesture "enjoyed by the ICT Twitter account" to some pre-teens who told him to GTF after a woeful shot at goal straight from ko at 1-0. Our CBs both did well I thought, especially Brad McKay. It was noticeable that he was limping throughout the second half, so hopefully he'll be fit for next weekend.
  9. This. It's in the laws of the game, so the ref did the right thing by waiting until the ball was out of play.
  10. A few observations today... Seedorf was great. I think RB will be his permanent position, despite spending time at CB and CM in the last two games. I still think he's too slight for a central position, but at RB today his touch, movement and passing was excellent. I reckon Raven is that other player that is rumoured to be offered out for free with OFW. Polworth was awful. Since seeing him play for Scotland schoolboys on SkySports I've been desperate for him to become a superstar in the team, but he seems to have stalled in the last 12 months. He's obviously lacking confidence and needs a goal or MOTM performance to get back on track. Baird/Oakley combined quite well at times. Baird played better, but Oakley was the only ICT player with black boots... so he wins out despite doing very little. Warren/Mckay were more than comfortable as a CB pairing and from what I've seen of the Middlesborough loanee I reckon those three are good cover for the season.
  11. Daryl Duffy was apparently playing up front for us today. He was not very good. There was also a half time stadium announcement for a Mr Alan Gow to report to the team tunnel - which made me fear the worst!
  12. Up there with one of the worst ICT performances I've seen. I'm as happy clappy as they come, but I really fear for the coming months considering how many first team players were in today's team - who were comfortably bossed by a L2 side.

  15. I spent a summer living in Cardross near Dumbarton about 5 or 6 years ago, where I went to all of Dumbarton's home pre-season games. I also tried every pub within the close vicinity of the ground and they were all bear pits
