  1. Decent performance in my opinion we matched County once again but the real problem here is JR’s inability to kill off teams tactically once we get the lead. He can blame the defence all he wants but it’s the same defence tactically he sets out week in week out

    I think the replay is a huge game now for Robbo, he has to change something and I would start to try and play the game on the deck I just think we are too predictable and County know that now

    Bigger park will actually suit County next week so we can’t afford to set up the same like last night.

  2. Had The supporters trust or any group of ICT fans for that matter been in possession of the flag last night it would have been the ideal time to display it due to the number of fans in our end. It certainly would have added to the occasion especially with it being on live tv.

    Cutting it up would be an absolute outrage and I would have to question the motive for carrying out such an act. No-one would want a rag as a momento.The only place to benefit would be the clootie well or the nearest landfill site.

  3. Think handing it over tho the newly named ICT supporters trust as a free gift would be a goodwill gesture.

    Doofersdad would it be something the trust would be interested in?

    That way the flag remains within the club and can be displayed at any game in the future

    I went into a Hun bar after the game and they were in a darts game. The bar man asked me what the score was and I said 3-1. He said "Well that wasn't too bad". When I replied that it was 3-1 to us the feckin place exploded and I received a few free vodkas.


    Fake news I think the more likely scenario was that you were outside the main gates involved in the demonstration calling for John Barnes to resign.

    Somehow this thread evaded me at the time, to be fair to Coach he probably has no previous experience of Dougal unlike the rest of us and it's probably a sad indictment of Dougal that my first thought when I saw the thread was oh here goes I wonder what Dougal has posted.

    Hey at least he hasn't let us down  

    This is a positive move for the club and while it doesn't affect our core business it certainly should increase the profile which can only be positive.


    Verging on tears.

    Shame Mr Caleyjag still obviously can’t take a lighthearted joke. 

    Your sensitivity is quite sweet though you remind me of my late grandmother.

    Feck me Dougal - Been on the lash to Ochilview far too many times to remember individual games !!!  To me though the camaraderie and craic at Away Days is one of the main reasons that I keep going.

    So the fact that you don’t have a season ticket ,rarely attend home games and freely admit to not buying official merchandise you ain’t really adding to the coffers or contributing to the club you seem to have a lot to say about then?

    Boring bestards like Dougal don't know what having the craic is.

    Well I will give you a comparison from my own experience.

    I went to Stenhousemuir in the Scottish cup early nineties on the bus organised by Finlay’s Bar. Maybe you were on it but then again you might have been in the East end of Glasgow that afternoon? 

    Now that was an away day probably only bettered by St Johnstone in the replay same campaign I think!

    The away day now is now unrecognisable you are sitting amongst numerous blue rinses where the highlight of the journey is sampling the home baking that they take turns distributing each week and that sadly is no fishing trip.

    We as a club have no future unless we encourage young fans. Not excusing some of the stuff in the past but we need to start a dialogue. Agree with  its not a Sunday School comment totally. 

    Only some of the stuff? So what stuff are you ok with? 


  9. Robbo alluded to this very subject yesterday in his post match comments.

    Robbo we do indeed have a minority away support that create a better atmosphere than the entire home support however they aren’t the ones paying your wages ya rocket.

    Caley Away are lining the pockets of all the other clubs they visit and they should remember that instead of coming on here and shouting how good they are compared to the home support

    This is the time that all fans home and away should unite it’s not all about my dads bigger and better than your dad.

  10. It was reported yesterday 2100 attended but I think most sane people will admit it never looked like there was even close to 2000 there, either the figures are being manipulated or the club are including all season tickets sold whether they are in attendance or not.

    My concern is that this will continue to drop not just because of the poor football on show but Robbo's criticism of the home support in his post match rant is not going to help matters.

    Ok probably the weather was also a factor yesterday which I fully understand but when does these figures actually become a concern to the board and the so called guardians of the club?

  11. I’d rename it the Inverness and Nairn Enterprise Plastic Dome. Weren’t they the ones who had the great insight to locate a stadium in the worst posdible position Inverness could offer?

    It doesn’t matter what it’s renamed it will always be known as the dump by Invernessians because that is exactly what it is.

    Gift eh? Don’t make me laugh lol

    Maybe bbc should get Alan Simpson to do the interviews 

    he sounds like a guy who has got some good views of how football clubs should be run, oh and his insight on players is top notch.

    Nah they already have one roaster doing that, having said that maybe he’s back running around a track like a headless chicken so there could be an opening after all

    Which helps attract sponsors and advertisers. 

    The great Jock Stein once said “Football is nothing without fans” 

    I fully understand you endorse the franchised model when it comes to football clubs but he was right without fans the game will die

  14. You wonder how Football clubs survived back in the day when the only game shown live was the Scottish cup final.

    League games should be 3pm on a Saturday  with the odd night game thrown in not the other way around. 

    Our attendances are getting alarmingly worrying as it is wihout playing on a ludicrous night at a stupid kick off time.

    Id personally like to ban the BBC from the stadium, the likes of BT Sport are ok but then they have a genuine interest in the Scottish game whereas the BBC has neglected it for decades

  16. The ground that the stands sit on is the valuable bit not the stands themselves

    It’s a well known fact to the Invernessian football fraternity that both the temporary north and south stands have wheels below each section and when the time comes they can be moved to a more suitable location within Inverness.

    Sadly though the more we languish outside the top flight the longer they will stay where they are.

    We are in danger of becoming a non entity club like Arbroath it really is that thin a line when it comes to money in the scottish game.

    No substitute for being there in my opinion. We could all have watched the cup final on television but it wouldn't have been a tenth of the experience of actually being there.

    I hardly think comparing a national cup final in Glasgow to a cold dark night in Dingwall is really the same though is it

    I’d be surprised if the attendance is in excess of 4000 now that it’s been switched to a school night

    Shame on the SPFL

    There may be a few decent prospects in the Highland League but the quality there is not nearly what it once was.

    The league have lost big sides in Caley, Thistle, Elgin, Peterhead and even County. 

    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


  19. 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
