    Aberdeen performance

    Well folks, good result for the wee highland team this week. However I think this needs to be put in pespective, Dundee Utd are a weak kitten in comparison to last season's cup winning, table stormers. Looking at the highlights Celtic knocked you up and down for 90mins the previous week. To be honest I think its about time that ICT faced up to it that the best chance the Highlands have of being effectively represented in the top flight is to support ABERDEEN ! Top of the table and going strong. A club with a pedigree and heritage to prove that one we could contenders again. I have an affection for ICT due to its proximity to me and your struggle against the central belt. But lets not kid ourselves ICT is in its infancy.

    I won't bother correcting your grammar and spelling then. I was having trouble communicating with the grunts from the caley massive; I mean using three syllable words in succession is not exactly showing off! Oh and try some punctuation too...,,,,(sic)

    a question of sport

    What do you expect - we are way past Watford which seems as far as the London-centric BBC panelists are prepare to aknowledge.

    Only as good as your last game- no need for specifics and past glories- Caley may get there - i don't deny it ,but presently they are also -rans. Build a team and take your chances- there is only room for one big fish in this wee pond up here and it's not Caley T.

    You are assuming I live in the REAL capital of the Highlands- but due to work commitments it is probably somewhat closer to Inverness than yourself . Incidentally, this 'Haddie' actually goes to the matches! ......and is not blinded by devotion. Geography not your strong point either? Officially Aberdeen is not in the Highlands. Geographically it is the Highlands! - not regionally, but The Highland Boundry fault starts above Stirling in my atlas. Anyway, another example of ICT fans going off topic to avoid talking about real football issues - of which Thistle have plenty of. The Highland boundary fault runs from Lochranza on Arran to Stonehaven so you are correct that Aberdeen is indeed a Highland club but Stirling is somewhere in the middle of it. The good news of course is that Ross County were very far off the mark when they claimed to be the first Highland club to appear in a Scottish cup final, kind of making an @rse out of all those neutrals who travelled down with the tinklers hoping to see a bit of Highland history, now that is a FAIL, part time County fans Thanks for that - at least someone up here knows where they're from! Too many opinions on this forum without any need to check the facts. ICT fans always seem to be overly aggressive and on the defensive-some parallel to the playing style methinks. Anyway, what else would you expect from the Butcher!

    This is Fail. I think it's a fair, if not slightly glib and cavalier, comment. I don't think it warrants all the negative comments and nearly working smilies aimed at it. I thought ICT fans of all people would have a sense of humour.

    14 Team SPL

    Total nonsense! We only need ten teams in this league to keep the standard high. I mean, nobody wants to watch a bunch of pub football teams all running around the pitch chasing the ball. If you remember the early days of the premier league attendances went up in correlation with, in my opinion, the level of skill. Lets keep a high standard here and not dilute the league with also rans.

    Terry Butcher

    Many of you may think that big Tel did his bit this year... -BUT, have you considered the number of desicions that could have gone either way and had effect on a respectable scoreline. I don't want to get in to semantics but i can't help thinking his credentials and established connections may have helped. You don't leave Rangers' captaincy without still having fingers in a few pies. I mean he wouldn't have got a job at Aberdeen. :tonguecheek:

    Terry Butcher

    My point exactly.. I?m not suggesting a dark conspiracy theory involving sleepers, clandestine meetings and secret clubs, but just a good run of decisions. Leading to a score sheet -and subsequent points gained- not reflecting the team?s current true ability/ performance.
