    Inverness CT -V- Partick Th

    Another week another poor home game. Robbo can huff and puff about home fans but weve had 2 wins at home in the league what exactly does he expect? So many things wrong with todays performance a lot of which the manager and coaching staff need to take the blame for and some things the players. Firstly did we scout the opposition? Anyone who's read about Partick under Caldwell knows hes played that formation yet we set out a 442 against them first half and were out of ideas with how to play through midfield. Why when it was clear to see we needed to change it did it take till the second half to make two subs? The substitutions were interesting i think clearly rooney was injured and wasn't tactical to play him ahead of rooney. Although with Donaldson pushing on and far more capable on the ball we'd have been better off playing him at RWB. Taking Mcdonald off disspointed me going 3 at the back could have been a positive attacking decision against a Partick side who weren't offering much going forward. We could have put mccauley on for him and left Chalmers in the middle but no we played the worst Wing back partbership I've ever seen. When the second half started Jamie Mccart was playing as the right centre half thankfully this was corrected by management after he tried cutting back in and nearly lost us possesion but where was the forsight? The final sub could have and should have been for a defender why take Austin off 2 down and chasing the game? Crowds are negative and do pick on certain players; Polworth and White but only due to the fact we know they are capable and should be doing better. Would struggle to give out pass marks to anyone today. Mackay in goals bar maybe coming for the 1st, Mccart sloppy in possession but swept up well at times and i would struggle to mention anyone else.

    Women’s team finally

    I think it's a great move hopefully it garners support and interest and they do very well. If it means more follow the club due to feeling more engaged by the community work done by the club then even better. Shame to read the negative portrayal of coaches at the club and in Inverness though, I think it's worth remembering that almost all coaches in Inverness bar a few are unpaid and that regardless of having coaching badges paid for or not the financial cost of this is still far outweighed by the time these coaches put in. If footballers who have spent 20 years under some of the coaching greats can't make a success out of it how do you expect young coaches with limited coaching influences other than Primary School, Street League and Youth League starting out on this path to have a fully developed repertoire of drills. If by doing their badges and following the SFA templates that's a problem then maybe your criticism should be aimed at the coaching pathway as opposed to at those who willingly give up their time to coach in the structure.

    January signings

    Issues with signings not go back to pre season for me. We need to improve on what we have and we make signings based on performances against highland league sides. Need to play against better oppositon rather than signing them as a result of scoring against these sides. It's as clear as day with the finances the board aren't desperate to go up its a balance the books pay for a average mid table side and with any luck we might get play offs. I'd personally far rather watch our youth team getting more game time than some of our current crop. If it's another mid season may as well get them valuable game time rather than the journeymen who have little to no respect for our club and will soon be gone again.

    January signings

    Played Centre Midfield during his trial period with us earlier in the season. Tidy enough player when against lower level standard of opposition but isn't better than what we have already. That's what is key this window not getting more players in of the same standard. We need to improve the starting 11 not bulk out the squad.

    Inverness Ct -V- Falkirk

    Rooney and Mckay both need to better for the first two. Ridgers has to come claim the first inside the six yard box and for me has to do better with the second too. Joe Chalmers not street wise enough giving the ball straight back for the quick free kick at the second. Coll beaten too easily for the 3rd too. Contact begun outside of box for oakley foul so fair decision for me. I dont buy the lets blame the ref game today we conceded 3 to a side who were over the moon to get a point never mind the 3.

    U18's Season

    It is a league they have been sent a table on a couple of occasions for the 'progressive' teams. For some reason they never update them and make the leagues available publically the same thing happened last two years for the under 17s league. The games against elite sides are friendlies only and dount count towards the league. The league doesnt mean any change in status for level if won it.

    Inverness Ct -V- Falkirk

    With that we take the most important point. Our finances and squad show the boards expectations. We are running a team we can afford to keep in the championship. If we lucked out and went up im sure the board would be over the moon but i really dont think any expectation of that is being placed on that. So if anyone is expecting anything more tha a signing with the wage freed up by Ricky leaving, i'd think again.

    ICT Xmas Dinner

    If i recall correctly Hearts and Hibs did this last year but see no mention of them doing it again this year as of yet. Great work from the club and great to see them advertising it as too often the good news stories aren't heard about.

    Riccardo Calder Assault

    Ricky's potential and ability are irrelevant on this one. He is a footballer and should understand the code of conduct that goes along with it, as a role model we can't be seen to condone this behavior even if that negatively affects the squad. I'm sure after sentencing he will get a second chance in football just like other footballers have done but this should be at another club and would be done with them carefully considering it when offering a contract and accepting the risk.

    U18's Season

    Motherwell Under 18s 0 v 3 ICTFC 18s Morrison, Macgregor and Machedo. Another win over an 'elite' project brave club today.

    Aaron Doran

    Never was the quickest but looks to have lost a bit of pace despite looking physically better than previous years. I don't think he slows the play down far too often. Still only 27 and would love to see him get back to where he used to be.. the return of his goal scoring exploits v County would be a great start.

    U18's Season

    Will be very interesting to see whats next. Finance may have dictated not participating in the reserve league over last couple years but maybe now with a manager and board keen to promote youth with this current group coming of age they will be tempted to put a squad back in. Would be great to see more integrated into the first team squads earlier as we've had players in the past with ability but i struggle to see how you can expect players to make it when not playing 1st team football before 20 years of age. Exciting times but have to be managed correctly, the Youth Department did superbly getting them through and the development needs to keep on the same path.
