    Jake Mulraney

    I notice Jake scored for Ireland under 21s tonight, in a 2-1 defeat by Norway under 21s. Wish he could start finding the net for us!

    Liam Polworth

    Polworth took a lot of stick last season from quite a few posters on here, not all of it justified imo, yet he still ended up with the best 'assist' record in the league. Let's try and get behind him a bit more this year and see what he can do with encouragement rather than negativity.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    As they say, "There's no 'full' like an old 'full'. Don't take offence, I'm only 'fulling' around.😊

    A fair point you make. There does seem to be some inconsistency in the moderating in this instance when only one person is taken to task for 'personal' insults.

    Maybe it should have said "are demented"😊

    Who wants Gary Warren to stay?

    Must say I would have expected a statement on the club website thanking Gary for his loyalty to us over the past seven seasons. Our best ever signing in my opinion. For him to just go without even a mention seems a poor way to treat our club captain. I did think he might have had a chance of Rice's job, but apparently not. Good luck to him wherever he ends up. Top man.

    Scottish cricketers 'robbed'

    Scotland narrowly failed to qualify for next year's cricket world cup today, when a combination of bad weather and a poor umpiring decision saw them lose to the once mighty West Indies by only 5 runs when heavy rain stopped play. I know the VAR system in football is getting a bad press right now, but its equivalent in cricket, the DRS system, has been used at the top level for years reasonably successfully. Unfortunately it was not being used in the world cup qualification tournament just coming to an end, and one of Scotland's best batsmen was on the rough end of a very poor lbw decision , which, had DRS been in use, would certainly have been overturned in Scotland's favour. On top of that, Scotland lost out when rain stopped play with about 14 overs left, when they needed 74 runs to win at little more than 5 an over, when the infamous Duckworth/Lewis method of deciding rain delayed matches came into force, indicating that Scotland were 5 runs below the 'par' score when rain washed out the match. Everyone knows that in almost all one day matches there is a huge increase in the batting side's scoring rate towards the end of an innings, so how D/W can deduce that with 14 overs left Scotland would not have been able to marginally increase their scoring rate to achieve the required runs is just incomprehensible. So a historic victory over an established international team, and qualification for cricket's world cup, which looked on the cards, for most of the day was denied them. Bad luck Scotland. You really were 'robbed' today.

    Yes, an absolutely outstanding performance from Scotland, and richly deserved. One to tell the grandchildren about.

    Callum Ferguson scored two more goals last night (7 Jun) for Cascadia in the CONIFA World Cup.

    And he scored his first goal for them last night, 3 Jun.

    Graeme Shinnie also played, for the full 90 minutes I think.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    His overseas experience didn't amount to much. He got fairly little match time whilst he was there, and even that was mostly as sub. Although I quite liked Nick, I can't see him improving our sqaud greatly.

    Gary Warren told he can leave

    I have always liked Warren. In my opinion he has been the best signing the club made in the last decade or so. My reading of the report indicates to me that the club is treating him entirely fairly. Whatever transpires I wish him all the best for the future. Top man.

    Yvonne Crook - New Chief Executive

    I wish her well, and we now seem to be very adequately covered at 'the top end' business wise which I hope will provide long term stability. I'm assuming we are sorted on the football management side too, although I'm not sure how long Brian Rice's contract is for. So, maybe just the playing side to be firmed up on, with one or two suitable new signings, or loanees, and we should be well prepared for the new season, and be able to have a concentrated crack at promotion right from the start. I feel a lot more confident about 2018/19 than I did a year ago. If we can keep the momentum going which we discovered in the last third of last season, there is no reason why we shouldn't do well, despite the Championship now being considerably stronger than it was in 2017/18. Onwards and upwards

    Nunneries of Sneck

    The convent at the corner of Southside Road/Culduthel road was indeed a primary school from soon after WW11 right through to the mid/late1950s.. It had two classrooms run by Sister Agnes, for the younger kids, and Sister Mary Frances for the older ones.

    A lot of talk about Mutumbo in this thread. I'm not sure what has happened to him. I know he joined RNK Split in Croatia in 2017, but whether he is still with them is unclear. Split's results are easy enough to find but finding their goalscorers in 2018 is extremely difficult. The usual websites I used when I was following exICT scorers more diligently than I do now don't seem to include them. And Mutumbo's Wiki page doesn't appear to have been updated in a year.

    Highland Derbies Next Season

    Still, I think his (Tansey's) penalty record has been the best that ICT has had in the past decade or so.

    Highland Derbies Next Season

    In fact, I wouldn't be that worried about any of our former players now at County, taking a penalty against us, apart from Tansey, who was decent.
  22. Caley Mad In Berks

    Confirmed

    Yes, I agree with Caman, discipline should be better. We just need Polworth and Warren to keep their cool and it should be miles better than this season. Couldn't be a lot worse mind you. I think it was the main thing which contributed to our dismal first half of the season. So, onwards and upwards!

    Cove Rangers

    I was disappointed to see that Cove lost their 2nd leg play off final to Cowdenbeath yesterday, after being ahead at one stage. I would have liked to see another HL team make it to the higher level. It looks as if Cove not only lost the match, but also their cool, having 3 players sent off in the 8 minutes of injury time which was played!

    Don't know if Grant is past his best now if Falkirk are releasing him. He was certainly a thorn in our side in our famous cup final victory.
