    Caleythistleonline

    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?

    Caledonian FC and Inverness Thistle stats

    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

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    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

    Special General Meeting - Rescheduled date

    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

    The Pre-Season Thread

    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

    Special General Meeting

    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

    Caley Jags Together - Update

    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

    The Social Club

    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

    Caley Jags Together

    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

    ALBA HALF TIME FEATURE - RAE & ROBBO

    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

    Can't help but think due to the farcical pavement dancing between Polworth and Kellacher that the real issue from Saturday has gone unnoticed 932 was the official attendance, that figure alone is deeply disturbing considering that Peterhead took a good few hundred with them It's quite clear that ICT fans are boycotting home games this season whether its official or unofficial I cannot comment but the board must have been Sh1tting themselves when they realised that only 500 at most home fans added to the coffers This coming Saturday will only further highlight the issue, while we have a massive relegation six pointer at Falkirk, by all accounts we are struggling to half fill a bus at the moment whereas Clachnacuddin are going to Spartans in the Scottish Cup and they have already filled three buses and are taking numbers for a fourth Something has got to give as it's clear we can't go on like this, immediate major changes need to happen or it's part time football only in Inverness Dougal
  18. 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
  19. I personally don’t have anything against such an event or the armed forces for that matter but it’s the type of character these events attracts is the issue Far right groups like the SDL, local supporting orcs,loyalists, unionists the orange order all try and jump on the bandwagon and use the armed forces as an excuse to meet up for a good bevvy and possibly cause bother Like Rene says it should not be exclusive to the armed forces and other professions should also have their day Dougal

    Well a clown I maybe but this clown has never pretended to be Irish, sung songs about the 1916 Easter rising or urinated on the open terracing at a football ground in Glasgow in the 80s before 😉 Lord Provost Dougal

    Tad on the rough side today but a thoroughly enjoyable trip yesterday with the Lillies Must admit it was not a traditional day out what with all the dressing up and costumes etc but I guess it is nearly Halloween Everbody reasonably friendly although there were a few complete belters travelling but what support doesn't Despite the 5-0 score line still enjoyed the game but in all honesty it was all over as a contest by half time, Clach keeper took a sore one and was rushed off to hospital so I hope he is on the road to recovery Strong anti merger rhetoric amongst the support and local journalism which they were quite open with Not sure I will make a habit of it but it would have still have been a better trip than the women's guild bus to Falkirk Lord Provost Dougal

    Polworth v Kellacher

    Watching the highlighlights I don't think I've ever seen a smaller crowd at a home game than that 😳 No sure how official or accurate the 932 figure was but it looks considerably less than that The club claim both parties in the pavement dancing having been dealt with internally but really this would have been the ideal time to release a public statement on what that actually meant Why should it make a difference whether it's two employees scrapping than it would if two fans had an altercation? By keeping stoom it certainly doesn't set a very good example to the impressionable youth Dougal

    Morning Danger I realise your comment is very much tongue in cheek but would that be a huge issue? Who do we actually have as a spokesperson at the moment certainly not caleyjagforever or the self acclaimed caleyd the cuckoos who flew the nest The last disappearing act on such a monumental scale was probably Shergar in 1983 Anyhow I'm off to Spartans today on a traditional football day out like the old days, mon the Lilies Dougal
