  1. Great result ............................ as long as we kick on from this. The Arabs will be tough to keep up with but if we can start knocking in a few goals who knows? Hopefully last night's result will instil a bit of confidence in the whole team. First half was pretty uninspiring although we just about deserved to be ahead at the break and once we scored the second we seemed to grow in confidence. No reason we can't finish second (being realistic) although I would just love us to edge out Utd (especially after last season)
  2. A depressing start to the league : serves to emphasise our clear shortcomings which were all too evident against the other half of Dundee last Sunday.
  3. Haha : yes, thought that after I posted!
  4. Watched most of the match on TV (missed the first 20 minutes or so). Same old, same old : zero creativity in the final third. I don't think even one half chance was created. Utterly depressing : keep playing like that and championship football is a certainty for next season

    League Cup Draw

    ICT are notoriously slow starters : need to start on the front foot both in cup and league and not be left playing catch up. We always seem to stick to a Highland tour for pre season matches : maybe a step up in quality of opposition might help the team in these early games?
  6. As always different folks see things in a variety of ways. I feel we were really close to getting past the Arabs . A couple of dubious (that's being kind) refereeing decisions certainly didn't help but the bottom line is we failed to score a goal over 180 + minutes. A lack of creativity and sharpness up front is clear for all to see. We were on top for a lot of the time (especially at Tannadice) but didn't make it count when it mattered. Here's hoping we can solve this issue next season.
  7. As long as Utd fail to get up, I'll be happy. Need to be far sharper in the final third. Far too much long ball stuff instead of moving it on the ground. No goals in 180 minutes is the main reason we failed.

    Play offs

    Which I guess reinforces the point the original and subsequent posters made. The dead wood self preservation types in charge of Scottish football need to be moved on . Let's hope ICT can make it a first..................

    Play offs

    No, I was referring to the Scottish championship and the fact that should a 3rd / 4th placed team make it to the play off final, they would end up playing three 2 legged matches (in a pretyty short period), whereas the premiership team only have to play one 2 legged match.

    Play offs

    As I've said before, only the Scottish football authorities could dream up such a skewed play off system. Would be interesting to know whether a 3rd / 4th placed Championship team has actually achieved promotion?
  11. Well done to all : third place is the best we could have hoped for realistically. Play offs will be tough given the 'only in Scotland could that be dreamt up' format but on the positive side, the opposition are no great shakes. Looks like St Mirren will be the PL second bottom team : would certainly prefer them to Hamilton

    Crowds.

    Had a quick look at the crowds for this season. Seem to be holding up pretty well in the circumstances (Championship and pretty poor fare): most matches over 2,000. Don't think they were much higher in our SPL days?? It always amazed me that the higher we went in the leagues (as well as gathering a few notable cup scalps), the lower the crowds became. A bit of it down to the novelty factor wearing off?
  13. We've lost players in the past and will again in the future. Let's concentrate on the play offs and see where that takes us.
  14. He would still be with us for the play offs.
