  1. Now that I live in Ipswich I have got myself a season ticket, less said about last season the better. Jordan Roberts has only played in the trophy I.E checker trade which is the equivalent of the challenge cup played only by teams from league 1 and lower plus Prem u21 teams. He hasn't started or been anywhere near the squad for a league game i think town signed him from Crawley last summer under Paul Hurst.
  2. Can’t wait for this coming up with hopefully a few lads that have never been to a game in Scotland. They are both Ipswich Town fans so could do with some cheering up ?
  3. Now the dust has settled I will add my thoughts. Lots of people in the mallard used the thrase we were robbed but we shot ourselves in the foot like we have done with many of the draws of we accumulated so far. Our lack of cutting edge has cost us points and Saturday was no different. In all three derbies Caley have played some great football but lack of goals has seen us pick up 2pts instead of 9 that we deserved. First game was tightest but we should have been clear in the first hour and then our home game we missed a hatful. Saturday we dominated throughout, county had chances but we had the better ones before we murdered them second half. Had that been a boxing fight then county would have thrown in the towel. But we failed to take any of our glorious chances including a wonderful chance for tom Walsh, who was exceptional without having that killer pass or strike to back it up. We had a better team in 09/10 when we came back from 12 Pts behind Dundee and we are 13 Pts behind county but realistically we are in the battle to stay in the play offs and chance our luck in that. Mixed emotions so proud of the performance but gutted by the result but we stick together and whatever will be will be in 2019 - Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!!
  4. My first non derby game and now I see it. For both derbies I have seen tempo, creativity and excitement and I wondered why we draw so many - today gave all the evidence. Poor defending but yet we still have half an hour to win it and there was nothing. They looked shaky from set pieces and yet we didn’t put many good crosses in and resorted to playing straight balls to whyte and Oakley but no midfielders bombing on so no ideas at all. The officials were poor don’t let that mask over a poor display against a side we should be beating. Someone next to me said to his mate we will know where we are by the end of this month. With Ayr/Dundee Utd and a trip to Dingwall before the new year looks like we will especially after getting no points from the easiest fixture this month
  5. p.s well done to the young lads in the North Stand for creating a great atmosphere
  6. Well can only echo what’s been said as it was an absolute perler of a game. I can’t comment on the offside from the angle I had, I called for it at the time but can’t say if it was but it did look like the linesman was 5 seconds behind the play. It’s hard to give a man of match as they all performed but that stop from Ridgers was Gordon Banks esq to get a strong enough hand to claw it past. On reflections Doran just couldn’t stretch enough even though I continued to scream how did he miss. I was disappointed in Polly’s effort as he had more time to pick and choose where he wanted to place it. Calder was immense and those crosses wow wicked every time just nobody to finish it up. I think the players need to have a little more belief as there were times when through balls or like calders free kick near the end, where players could have continued their runs and gambled. But nobody has beaten us even if a few too many draws and we are still only 3 behind 3rd place. If we can get a winning run together and then maybe if one or two additionals are available in jan (money dependant) then play like that every week and we should be in great shakes going into the promotion/play off mix
  7. I don’t think the team is massively worse off that anyone else overall but we do lack a goal scorer and atm it is costing us places and losing us ground on the leading teams. Obviously dunfermiline on Tuesday is big in terms of giving us confidence going into the weekend. People think we will be battered next week but I don’t think we will as we have the best gk and best back 4. Defensively we are as strong if not stronger than anyone else in the league. Robbo needs to find a new set up to allow us to score more as we can’t keep it going as it is and hope we can nick games. Big week ahead
  8. Frustrating apart from partick we have two games against 10 men and then 2 games against mid table sides and although we haven’t lost we have picked 7 from a possible 15. The 4-2-3-1 works well away which I have no worries but if we are going to keep in the play offs or even win the league then we need to find a way to turn draws into wins at home. Unbeaten run continues but For all the pretty football we seem to play we have little end product atm. We need more goals in the team strange feeling we haven’t lost but I feel a bit meh about the last few games even though we haven’t lost
  9. It was a long one for me sleeper from Euston Friday night and then flight back to Luton on the Saturday before my sister picked me up and we drove the 2hrs back to Ipswich. Even though it was 0-0 the day was well worth and cant wait for November and New Year when I will be visiting my parents and getting to the games.
  10. excellant day brilliant banter in the singing section and a deserved point. Probs fair result but i thought we were the better side throughout. For all county's money and quality on the pitch they looked very ordinary and lacked any cohesion. Just missed that spark up top otherwise we would have won that. Big shout out to Liam Polworth, standout player on the pitch pulling all the strings. Also shout out for completely different angle to Ian Vigurs, who came on and worked so hard to take Liam out of the game. What a thug ?
  11. Derby Day is here! The first Derby of the season kicks off at 3:00pm in Dingwall on Saturday. Tickets for Inverness fans can be bought on the day from the matchday ticket offices at the ground. Ginger Jaggy has written this weeks preview ahead of the derby and here is what he has to say.... It is always a fixture that fans look too on fixture release day with the first of four instalments taking place in Dingwall on Saturday. And if a derby is not enough spice then throw into the equation it being a top of the table clash against a County side boasting several ex-Caleyjag players to get the juices flowing. For myself the excitement can’t get any greater having not attended a game since the ill-fated final season in the top flight and I have not been back to Dingwall since the old away terracing was done away with. County started the season as favourites, who would bet against a side that still boasts Premiership quality and one of the biggest budgets. But they haven’t set the league alight and currently sit behind us by a point as we look to make a statement of intent on enemy territory. If John Robertson can get the Caley Jags promoted it will go down as probably the biggest achievement in his managerial career. He has had an ever-shrinking budget and is almost rebuilding the club on his own by creating a new squad good enough to get back into the top flight. And so far, the omens look good. Since it eventually clicked last season the Caley Jags have now gone an impressive 17 league games unbeaten including the first five of this term. Although home draws against Alloa and Ayr were poor results considering both played at least a full half with 10 men, Inverness have continued to be hard to beat and carry on picking up points. But either side of the international break we have scored three times against Dunfermline and Partick - two expected rivals for promotion - setting us up nicely for the trip to Dingwall. Ross County have reported strong sales for the match so far and with a large away following expected it should be a cracking atmosphere. Here's hoping that the points get brought back across the Kessock Bridge that will give us the early bragging rights but more importantly puts us further clear at the summit. Team News John Robertson will be without George Oakley who was injured late in the game against Partick Thistle. It is understood he will be out for a few weeks. Shaun Rooney is a major concern although he has allegedly been training all week since coming off before half-time in the same fixture. Jamie McCart will be an option should Rooney fail to make the squad with Brad Mckay moving to right back. Young Daniel Mackay will move up the pecking order with Oakley sidelined. Liam Polworth is another who carried a knock forward after the Partick game but he is likely to be fit. Stuart Kettlewell & Steve Ferguson were given a boost with the news that Marcus Fraser and Keith Watson should be available. County could possibly have four former Caley Jags players in their line-up. Don Cowie, Ross Draper, Iain Vigurs and Billy Mckay. Brian Graham has been in goal scoring form recently and the big striker will present a tough test for Coll Donaldson and his cohorts. Other new names to the County squad are forwards Declan McManus (Dunfermline) and Ross Stewart (St Mirren), midfielders Josh Mullin (Livingston), Harry Paton (Hearts) and defenders Keith Watson (St Johnstone), Stelios Demetriou (St Mirren) and Callum Morris, (Dunfermline). Out went some crowd favourites like captain Andrew Davies, Alex Schalke, Christoper Routis, Jaison Naismith, Thomas Mikkelsen, Craig Curran, Reghan Tumilty, and Tim Chow. Just to whet the appetite............. More detail can be found on the Official Website Preview Who put the O and Y in County! Who put the O and Y in County! Who put the O and Y in County!

  13. Hey Guys, I will be travelling up for the Derby in a few weeks but will also disappear back down South after the game. As the train will get me back into Inverness too Late is there a chance of a lift back to sneck so i can sort out getting to the airport. If not i can get a taxi but if there is then it will save me a few pennies ?.
