    Thanks for your interest I got them in around 2000 a broker came into my book shop and he said to buy them . I paid about a £1000 and them I bought some more. later on when they had a share issue.They went up to arpund £10,000 . When the crash came they dropped right down. I bought some more about a year ago with another share issue offer came . I just pick up the dividend twice a year, which is very good compared with interest rates you get at the bank. I really have no intention of selling them. I am 76 this year so unless I go broke they will be left to my kids. They are just a good source of income for me. good solid company that does very well, builds schools and hospitals and the like.

    Disgraceful attitude of a tiny minority of ICT fans

    What is the motivation of these fans ? I realise they wish to show their disappointment and displeasure at performances. Is it just a young male problem ? Is it a society problem ?. I say this because , I see very little respect in he media , for important members of society . People these days do not hold back in venting their frustration, in ways in my day would not have been tolerated. I have no answer ? My Dad always said " treat other people as you would wish to be treated yourself, courtesy costs nothing". If people do not enjoy their football, why go to the matches? Imagine if these supporters were Notts County fans, the oldest club in football, founder member of the original football league, about to drop out of the EFL into obscurity. They would really have something to moan about. !!! Yes Johnjo you will see them at Chorley next year, amazing !!!
