    Next Season

    The only big sides lost to the HL were Caley and Elgin and at a push Peterhead, I always laugh how the fools from up the hill try and re-write history with their own fabricated spin on things As for the thistle team from 1993/4 that leached onto Caley they would have struggled to reach mid table in the Highland League today never mind take and Scottish cup scalps Dougal

    January signings

    Charlie Bannermans phone box doon the Carse? Dougal
  3. You know what I find rather odd is Robbo’s relationship with the club. When he was at County he walked away without hesitation when he wasn’t backed financially by the County board at that time yet he seems to act the complete polar opposite with ICT who you could argue that are in even more financial difficulties than County were then. I don’t buy into this emotional tie to the club and the highlands considering he couldn’t wait to get back to Gorgie previously Something just doesn’t add up in my eyes Dougal
  4. EK were formed as a result of a merger and like us they are from one of the biggest towns in Scotland but have a very poor support In comparison to their population. There are even more old firm supporters in East Kilbride than Inverness Dougal
  5. Maybe the answer is to a employ a third party to act as a go between Cordiner and Larg are still local are they not? Dougal
  6. Yes I did thanks Another way of looking at this latest blip is that the supporters trust who don’t represent the whole ICT support I would like to reiterate wanted one of their own to fill the position but have thrown the toys out of the pram when the club haven’t offered them such role Dougal
  7. Can we have an update or has this project being binned At times CTO reminds me of the people’s front of Judea lots of talk and meetings about meetings Dougal
  8. Fair play to the club they should decide who fills this role it’s not for the likes of a caleyjagsforever to decide they only speak for their members not the entire ICT support The club will no doubt offer candidates to apply that way they will get to approach a broader and wider fan base Dougal
  9. You would think it would be the responsibility of the parent club to accurately collate all the info regarding results and history etc After all they stripped the assets took the names and attempted and somewhat failed to take the majority of the Inverness football fraternity with them I think a measly few photos on the stadium wall and the HFA in Dingwall is totally unacceptable in my opinion Had it not been for the likes of Mantis and the contributors to his nostalgia site there would be absolutely nothing Dougal
  10. A tad rich considering you’re last dissappearing act resembled Shergar going missing then reappearing in burger rolls somewhere on the emerald isle You sneaked back in trying to be some sort of self appointed saviour,well you don’t full me dougal
  11. Haven’t renewed this season Ender but you are right I’ve been attending games since the seventies and I have a far greater knowledge of football than most of the roasters on this site anyway Im now signed up to P&b are you a member there ? As for shouting at the dump you get treated like a leper so is it any wonder why it’s so quiet Dougal
  12. Maybe it’s just me but this site seems to have deteriorated quite considerably over the last year or two and the contributors have become less and less Its plainly obvious that traffic has reduced dramatically the question is why? 1. Twitter and Facebook has put the final nail in the football forum 2. Caley thistle fans seemed to have started posting elsewhere reading pie and bovril there are a number of ex CTO posters now active on that site and they certainly don’t seem to hold back from slagging us off 3. Over zealous moderating any subject that is in anyway slightly contentious seems to get closed or deleted altogether. 4. Caley jags forever fiasco Maybe I’m making a mountain out of a molehill but I personally think there is something really wrong within the ranks of support I’m more disillusioned with Scottish football as a whole than any of the reasons I’ve given above if I’m being honest although I’m thinking of giving pie and bovril a go even if it’s just to help the boredom Thoughts? Dougal
  13. More than one clown in Inverness that night then Dougal
  14. Whoever takes this sorry mess over should think of a rebrand or name change CJT is total naff and has tonnes of unwanted baggage with it I’d personally rather join Hezbollah than caleyjagsforever the way this farce is acting out Dougal
  15. So yet another pre-season playing against pure diddies and therefore not preparing sufficiently enough for the season ahead I’m not saying we should have glamour friendlies but a little imagination from those that claim to be the guardians of this club is needed We deserve better Dougal
  16. ^^^^^^^^^ Reminds me of a certain poster
  17. From Cool Hand Luke What we’ve got here is failure to communicate, some men you just can’t reach, so you get what we had last week, which is the way he wants it. Well he gets it .I don’t like it any more than you men Dougal
  18. First time I’ve logged in for ages due to my disillusionment with Scottish football but it sadly seems little has changed Think most folk know my general feelings on caleyjagsforever so I won’t go over old ground but it’s vitally important that a club like ours has a fans movement with a say at board level At the very least I think a name change is required especially if there is to be new blood on the fans board all credibility appears to have been nullified under the previous regime One thing I do find curious is however why someone who has spent most of his football watching life being a season ticket holder at Tannadice would even put himself in such a position to lead a fans group of another club why? I find it astonishing that the lack of Invernessian input there is in ICT but I suppose that’s society now or it is in this neck of the woods This is the time for ordinary Inverness punters which certainly appear to be a dying breed to step forward to get involved and you challenge what’s already in place Dougal
  19. Got as far as this and suddenly realised this entire post was probably completely fabricated nonsense, certainly has an air of “against all odds” to it As for the social club whether it was pre merger or post merger it was infiltrated by some of the biggest belters Inverness had to offer and by the sounds of it still does Dougal
  20. Thank goodness the art of tattooism has come on ten fold since the days they were illegally done down back street alleys in Benidorm Dougal
  21. Think most folk on here know my feelings on Caleyjagsforever so I won’t go over old ground but I also won’t claim to say I told you so either We should remember these type of fan groups do not represent the entire clubs support, however they can cross the line when they try and act like they do so New board members might make a difference but everyone needs to be reading from the same hymnsheet therefore getting the correct folk in is vitally important but they should be vetted first not just added because they are keen Background checks are a must Dougal
  22. Refuseniks did not abandon anyone or anything they simply did not want to become a part of a franchised institution, I admire their stance and their integrity Robbo is 100% spot on and I admire him for stating the bleeding obvious, maybe old Caley girl and Kingsmills should contact him if they take offence and tell him Hearts and Hibs should have merged years ago as it would have been the making of Edinburgh as a football force ffs Well said Robbo Dougal
  23. Don’t you believe it, The Apprentice boys of Derry don’t march in Inverness because they fancy a nice stroll in the spring sunshine they do as they have a supportive network for these marches to take place You only need to go out in town on a Saturday night and it won’t take long to see how many undesirables there are in Inverness Dougal
