  1. Oh my God, I haven't enjoyed myself so much in ages! What a finish by Rankin, when was the last time we scored a goal like that? Absolutely stunning. We were fantastic, Rangers created very little despite their possession, and McGregor made three stunning saves. Brilliant. Totally brilliant.
  2. Oh dear God, we at least got some entertainment, but it was mainly from comedy defending... First, the positives. For the first time in weeks our midfield looked balakced and threatening. Black anchored it impressively, and Rankin was a constant menace, finally starting on the left hand side. Wyness missed a couple of great chances, but his use of the ball when it came to him more than made up for that - his spins and flicks were causing havoc. On the other hand, I think EVERY GOAL WE CONCEDED WAS A DEFENSIVE DISASTER. A bunch of wheelie-bins would have been more useful at the fi
  3. Unfortunately I am a season ticket holder... Let's see, what problems were there today? Our passing was poor, we were second to every 50-50 (and in one or two cases, pulled put of it), we couldn't hold the ball up top, we had no width, the final ball was constantly wasted, and when Charlie did change things it made zero difference. We have no heart, no drive, no imagination. Apart from that, we were fine... Only Dods looked like he gave a **** about the result, and then he ruined his performance with a reckless tackle for the penalty. People moaned about the ref, but I thought he
  4. Just back, here's my take on things... Mediocre first half, but open and entertaining second 45. It was all us in the last 25 minutes but we just couldn't find the spark to score. Dods was magnificent, one goal-saving tackle in the first half, then throwing himself in front of a shot from the same player later on. Munro was great as usual, while Dargo and Wyness did well with the scraps available. How Gordon managed to save Black's header I have no idea - looking forward to seeing that again. Hearts looked nothing like contenders for Europe, and Hartley only really had an influen
  5. Just back from the game, have to say RiG's report is pretty much spot on. Callum Murray is a total muppet. That equalizer was so sweet, the Aberdeen fans went mental, thinking it was a foul (BBC report suggests it was just a goalkeeping blunder). I totally agree about Foster's challenge on Dargo, it's a complete travesty that he wasn't sent off. On the other hand, I thought Dargs was lucky only to get a yellow for flattening Anderson - less a nibble and more a bite! Anyway, we didn't do a lot wrong today and deserved the point. One man who deserves a lot of credit today is Grant Munr
  6. RiG is absolutely spot on about the lack of protection Golly got. The number of times, particularly in the first half, that Rankin wandered into centre mid, leaving Golly with neither cover nor support was impossible to count! On the other hand, Golly's failure to complete the most simple of passes, and his poor defending for the first goal, means that his problems were not entirely due to Rankin.
  7. Just back from the game. Some post-match questions for Charlie... 1) Why wasn't Hastings playing instead of Golly? Alternatively, why wasn't Morgan playing instead of Golly? In fact, why wasn't Michael Fraser playing instead of Golly? 2) What is the point of wellying high balls up to your two strikers when they're midgets and the St. Mirren defenders are the sort of people usually found at the top of beanstalks? 3) Is John Rankin actually a left-sided midfielder? 4) Why, oh why did we sub Duncan, who was my personal man of the match and anchoring the midfield, for Keogh,
  8. I'm with CaleyD on this. I think its really unlikely that Black and Proctor would be left out tomorrow with such little fanfare about it beforehand, other than a subtle nod in a teletext article.
  9. CALEY: Craig Dargo is fit after a thigh problem caused him to miss the end of preseason. :003: Ross Tokely is also available after injury problems to challenge Stuart McCaffrey for the right-back squad, so Charlie Christie has a full squad to choose from. John Rankin may make his debut. ITV teletext doesn't name Ian Black or David Proctor in the matchday squad but there's been nothing from the club to suggest they won't be available. ST. MIRREN: Gus MacPherson has doubts over veteran defender Andy Millen, midfielder Ryan McCay and striker Brian McGinty. Summer signings Richard Brittai
  10. Can't wait - my first proper season ticket! I had one for the 4 months at Pittodrie but got a refund after we went back as commuting from Aberdeen was too much hassle. Now I'm back and I'm no longer a poor student, BRING IT ON!!!
  11. I suggest that Dundee United should insert their statement (and their bids for these players) into Craig Brewster's oversized rear end.
  12. I went looking for stats on previous encounters with the Saints, and if soccerbase is right we have played them 19 times, with Caley winning 11 and drawing 5 of these. We haven't lost the last 11 matches against St. Mirren, making us unbeaten against them for almost 5 years! Were Tom Hendrie and John Coughlin not sacked as a result of hammerings by us? HEAD TO HEAD 1999/2000 10th August 1999: Inverness CT 1 (Teasdale 88) St. Mirren 0 (Challenge Cup 1st round) 17th August 1999: Inverness CT 2 (Sheerin 104pen, Byers 118) St. Mirren 0 (League Cup 2nd round) 21st August 1999: St. Mi
  13. A decent enough performance, just like last night we created a lot of chances but our strikers weren't firing on all cylinders. Wyness's goal was superb, but for the rest of the game he looked quite disinterested. I thought the midfield were excellent, with Morgan my personal Man Of The Match, while the defence didn't look too worried apart from one slightly hairy moment from Dodsy. On the other hand, County were somewhat lacking in quality...
