    A welcome for Rangers next week

    I think a few chants is a must as it would be shameful if we never let them know how much we find their predicament funny but I think we should not go overboard as we don't want to enflame an already tense situation This will be the first away trip for the Orcs since entering administration and no doubt they will be tanked up on their buckfast In a way I'm glad it's an early kick off on the Sunday as it could have been a lot worse had it been 3pm on the Saturday Dougal

    Dunfermline -V- ICT

    Wasn't at the game yesterday but from reading this thread it sounds like it wasn't the greatest of games An ugly point it may have been but possibly a very important point for ourselves I think the important thing was that we left Dunfermline without a defeat I personally think relegation is now between them and a very poor Hibernian Dougal

    July 30th 2014

    IMHO the merger is still far too delicate and tender a subject to some and the only thing that an official series of anniversary events would achieve is to re-open wounds that are still not far enough from the surface The best thing for everyone would be to let the 2014 anniversary pass by and maybe wait till 2024 when feelings are more diluted I do think the idea of releasing memorabilia strips in 2014 would be a great idea and it could be a real money spinner for the club Better still maybe ICT could play in the Caledonian strip for all the home games that season and a Thistle strip for away games if they had to if there was a colour clash with the home team i.e St Johnstone,County, Orcs if they are still in existence etc Maybe the supporters trust could put the release of these memorabilia strips to the club at the next opportunity Dougal

    Today's Attendance

    No doubt I'll get slated for starting a thread on this subject but I believe it needs to be highlighted, and this is by no means me having a go at the ICT fans including myself who were in attendance today Less than 5800 today for a Scottish cup tie against the septics is an absolute disgrace considering what a massive game it was for the club To be outnumbered by the away support at home should never happen but it seems to be the norm when it comes to important cup ties at TCS, we can't put it down to Celtic having a huge fanbase because I recall it being the same scenario when Elgin came calling a couple of seasons back The north stand looked half empty from my seat in the main stand and that must have looked terrible on sky sports to a world wide viewing audience Our attendances are on the decline this season but the question is why? Why don't Invernessians get behind their team and back them in numbers has the novelty of SPL football worn off? ICT need to do something to attract more Invernessians through the turnstiles as they are clearly failing in found so at this precise moment! Inverness's population has grown quite substantially over the last two decades yet our fan base hasn't which means there is a serious problem in my opinion ICT should be targeting all the primary and secondary schools in the city with complimentary tickets, get the younger fans interested and who knows it might get the new generation of Invernessians interested Thoughts?

    Rangers go into administration

    Money could be made but at what cost? Some of these sleepy villages or towns will get destroyed when thousands of Orcs turn up on a Saturday afternoon Dougal

    Rangers go into administration

    What a bizarre post, you don't want to see any club go belly up and you believe that Scottish football needs it's older clubs???? I suggest you take a look at our own doorstep as the formation of ICT was the result of two clubs going belly up and ceasing to exist I do agree however that there will be some legal loop hole unearthed that will allow the Orcs to carry on in the SPL without a name change or at the very least a Rangers 2012 I personally would like them thrown out of the SPL and them made to start again in the Third division providing the SFL would accept them in the first place Better still would be if they were liquidated and this lead to Celtic going off to England If County go up next season we will enjoy two capacity attendances at TCS something we wouldn't have had with the Orcs We would generate more money from County and I can guarantee Sky would be televising a couple of highland derbies Dougal

    Caledonian Stadium will look second best

    All very well staggy but are you counting your whippets in that travelling support? Anyway now the plans are revealed I have been proved right that you lot will indeed have the number1 stadium in the highlands should you get promotion We need to be looking now more than ever to relocate to a site and a stadium where Invernessians can be proud off I find it very galling that we sold two prime city centre sites and got a landfill site, if that's not being short changed I don't know what is We deserve better Dougal

    Today's Attendance

    The days of sitting down and trying to educate the bigots should have happened decades ago Generation after generation have been brought up thinking this is the norm, you maybe want to sit round the table talking but I'd rather see direct action and at long last we seem to have a government who is addressing the problem and not brushing it under the carpet Fight fire with fire and if that means dishing out banning orders,fines or jail sentences so be it, they will soon get the message Dougal

    Chick Young on Caley Club Song.

    I agree with the doofers as well Caledonia would be an ideal anthem Failing that heres a wee clip I found on YouTube which might go down a treat with some http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=GB#/watch?v=NslvJdENxCE Dougal

    Chick Young on Caley Club Song.

    Whenever I think of an ICT song I think of that horrible cringeworthy Bring it Home melody Without doubt the worst Football song ever produced Dougal

    Butcher for England Manager

    Let's not kid ourselves here if Butcher was offered either the Engerland or the Orc job he would be off down that A9 quicker than we could spell ICT Let's just hope he never appears on the radar for either Dougal

    These reptiles need to do a serious bit of growing up They are a complete embarrassment to ICT and the club with the authorities should do all they can to dish out football banning orders No wonder we get tarnished as highland huns while we have this section/element within our support We should all play our part to eradicate this problem by pointing out the vermin to stewards or the northern constabulary if any unsavoury incidents happen in the future Dougal

    The Rangers

    Minority my erse You either don't live in the real world ,wear blue tinted spectacles or both When you hear a packed Ibrox in full voice or any Rangers support in any away ground in Scotland or Europe it is the majority not a minority who belt these songs out Wisen up Dougal

    The Rangers

    You crack me up....complaining about lack of support from the local area in one thread and hoping that we don't convert people to the cause and bring them in on an another!!! How exactly do you suggest converting one of them, once an Orc always an Orc IMO You maybe quite happy sitting next to union jack waving bigot but I'm most definitely not With that kind of attitude I can see now why you previously voted yes to kill of your previous team Dougal

    Today's Attendance

    These morons are a total embarrassment not only to the club but more so to themselves and shows up society in a very poor light Regardless what you think of the Septics, lowering yourselves to their level is pathetic and something we all could do without in the highlands If you feel the need to sing this tripe get yer names on the buses that leave the Portland every Saturday Dougal

    Improving the matchday experience at TCS

    We need to go back to the great days of yore From what Ive been told this was a great half time Inverness tradition Here's some footage maybe some of the older firms will confirm, could be a great money spinner as well as entertainment http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=GB#/watch?v=CB4U_VODCQk dougal

    The Rangers

    Today's result could well be another nail in their coffin if you ask me What worries me if they do become defunct is that we will get an influx of local orcs appearing at TCS, let's hope not!!!! Dougal

    The Reason I Stayed Away...

    Sorry but IMHO thats a quite ludicrous reason for not attending yesterday The old firm ashamed of nothing offended by everything I'm afraid you sadly come into that bracket with that kind of attitude A full north stand bouncing with our fans and we could have had the exact same scenario yesterday but due to the stay sways that was sadly not an option The apathy of the Inverness football fan makes a quite depressing read Say what you want about the Celtic support but they generated a lot of cash for ICT yesterday certainly a lot more than home fans Dougal

    ICT -V- Celtic (Cup)

    Very very disappointing for a Scottish cup tie as the players didn't seem to be up for it for some reason Today's performance confirms to me anyway that Ryan Esson is our number 1 now there is no doubt, I'm afraid It's time Tuffey should maybe look elsewhere for first team football unless he wants to sacrifice his international career Tokely's time at ICT is coming to an end a stalwart to the club but all good things eventually finish and he was cruelly exposed at the opening goal and at other times Proctor is not an SPL footballer and never will be, my advice to him would be to give Ross Jack a phone call on Monday morning to see if he can be considered for a switch to borough briggs in the summer I didn't even think Celtic were that impressive today and to be honest they eased themselves through to the quarters, other than the save from Forster which he tipped round the post we never really worried them, we had nothing up front and looked worryingly poor in defence The one positive I take from today is knowing Jonny Hayes won't be going to Parkhead as my source says the move will never happen despite the fact that Neil Lennon rates him quite highly Dougal

    Caledonian Stadium will look second best

    Call it fishing,winding up,trolling whatever I don't really give a dam It's time some of you roasters wake up and start to see the stagnation of our club( possibly even decline) while our near neighbours are progressing on and off the pitch at an alarming rate of knots If county do indeed get promoted I will be proved right regarding the stadium situation, albeit a smaller ground they will have the better facilities a more compact ground and one that will be more atmospheric and less exposed to the elements I"ll be honest here I was totally unaware of the situation regarding the mains gas pipeline but this makes the whole location of our stadium the more unbelievable Apart from the usual cyber bampots on CTO most ICT fans I know strongly dislike the location and design of TCS and I know for a fact visiting fans regard our ground as one of if not the worst in the league The gap between us and County is diminishing at an alarming rate, do we really want to see them with a complete stadium, a larger average attendance and more worrying a better team on the park???? Anyway I'm off into town for a few pints before heading to the game Dougal

    GTWB Productions Present

    To be fair Ender this thread did make me chuckle despite the name calling and it was a far more enjoyable read than the likes off "Against All Odds" However I reckon you should add another team for next years draw "Old firm old uns" can think off a fair few on CTO who would fit the bill nicely Dougal
