  1. Can a moderator close this topic? Or move it to general nonsense? The less said the better on this one.
  2. I think saying their a miserable failure is incredibly harsh and disrespectful. Most to get that close will have trained and played for nearly 12 years. You need ability but also a huge amount of luck for it to be the right time and place with managers who will trust youth and give them a chance. Frankly speaking playing at any level be it full time or part time is a massive achievement when you consider how many people attempt it. Once they drop to part time its always going to be the case they struggle against full time players. If you gave some of the part time players two y
  3. Those out of contract are out of contract having come to the end of their respective contracts. They were out on loan and now their contracts have come to an end. They weren't released to "make loans work". Whether they resign will depend on if contracts are actually offered to them and like most teams will be dictated by finances.
  4. Two from Ross Gunn from the bench and goals for Roddy Kennedy and Ryan Fyffe. Favourites going into the game and shown their quality by all accounts today.
  5. Indeed that we can agree on. From the games that I've attended and highlights I've seen on SHFL Tv on youtube i would summarise so far: They played almost all of the top 6 of the HL in the first set of games and struggled initially. Its important to point out that the struggle is largely represented in the early scorelines. For those that attended the games its evident that technically they aren't struggling. The guys are all capable players who are comfortable on the ball. The large majority of the goals conceded to date have been from set pieces. The physical side of the HL w
  6. Terrifying prospect i know. Anyhow anyone care to get this back on topic? Otherwise may as well file this under general nonsense.
  7. The players that travel on said bus. The one I have seen them get on and off.
  8. They are driven on a bus to fort william and back and aren't having to utilise own transport.
  9. It's becoming very frustrating. Having watched all of the young players playing its clear have real potential. The likelyhood of Daniel getting game time with the senior options available was slim at the moment so going on loan and getting experience makes sense. However again like last season i see it as a waste of the talent and potential. To reach their potential they need to play first team football at the highest level possible. Playing with better llayers will improve them. You only need to look at Ryan Christie development to see that. If these guys get to 19 and still on
  10. Trafford, austin and possibly mccart it was. Worth remembering it was our 18s against their 20s though Jack.
  11. Back at Hearts according to this. In what capacity? Wont be a playing role so likely coaching / community.
  12. Thats my problem with taking him on loan. That development in his game from match experience will benefit hearts when he returns in summer. It's exactly that experience that our own youngsters need to develop them. If he made a difference consistently and added real quality to push us to promotion great but it just isn't the case.
  13. Based on the rest of the teams in the league bar County and Dundee Utd most seem to have a balance of 1st team players and youth starting games. We throughout an 11 have a higher standard throughout the overall 11 to most but i dont believe our better players are as good as the rest. Most of our starting 11 would get games at other teams in the divisions but few would be standouts and those that would aren't in the right areas to win us games Ridgers, Coll etc. I'd like to see us lose a lot of the average players in the squad put the youth guys in and the wage saved to be put into
  14. 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 seco
  15. 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 wel
  16. Dow signed for peterhead till the end of season. His father in law is the manager.
  17. 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.
  18. Only the 4th round with a chance to get into the quarter finals.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Motherwell Under 18s 0 v 3 ICTFC 18s Morrison, Macgregor and Machedo. Another win over an 'elite' project brave club today.
