  1. No one is saying he does but when lots of filthy lucre is dangled in the face of Celtic and Christie, it tends to have the desired effect.
  2. McBurnie went for £17.5M and has half the talent of Christie and way less than half the goals. Even allowing for the fact that SPL players are usually under valued I think Christie will fetch more than £20M. Like Mantis I don't see him leaving until the end of the season at the earliest.
  3. Couldn't agree more Mantis, if he is leaving no way will it be for £14M not when a full back left for over £20M. Can't criticise Celtic for attempting to take advantage of our financial situation to enrich themselves but we should tell them in no uncertain terms where they should go. If an approach has been made on this subject then it suggests that he is indeed leaving Celtic however, the £14M figure sounds like a plant by their friends in the media to influence the negotiations with ICT over the sell on clause. I hope our board have sufficient nous to see through this well worn tactic.
  4. "Without doubt the most talented footballer that has come from Inverness," true but I think our perception has been influenced by what he has done since he left ICT where he was still a prospect with obvious ability and slightly built. For me Shinnie was excellent during his time for us, influential at both ends of the pitch and a great captain and leader ably backed up by Warren, Draper, Tansey, Watkins, Meekings.
  5. With the benefit of hindsight, the day Yogi became our manager/coach.
  6. Without a doubt the cup final victory - something we will never witness again. Fixed it for you.
  7. He needs to cement his place as Celtic and Scotland's No 10 first, I agree with DD he will spend at least another year with Celtic and if he keeps scoring goals his value will be way above £20M in today's inflated prices.
  8. That's what will ultimately ruin football "the game is nothing without the supporters" Jock Stein
  9. Could be niggles, could be strategic resting of players, to be fair to RC their battle is not with the OF who are already in a league of their own 12 point gap against the rest. I think the Manager regards the Hibs game in midweek as more important and a better chance to pick up points, I wouldn't read too much into it.
  10. No one could accuse you of making snap decisions Alan, might it not be better to see who's about then bag him? Am not so sure we will actually make the playoffs, not on current form.
  11. Greetings Joseph, RC have always been THE highland club simply because they have been around much longer than ICT. As someone mentioned, much of the support has come from people who have moved to Inverness, at the cup final I sat with two girls born in Inverness who had travelled from France and Canada, the club had 15,000 supporters that day most I reckon from outside Inverness. When I moved north during the Paterson years I was entertained by the style of football his team played and which led to many Scottish Cup upsets Celtic (twice) Hearts away, Motherwell away when we were still a 1st division team, few had taken notice of what was being built in Inverness which eventually culminated in the SC win and third in the league. The club then shot themselves in both feet, however, Livingstone have shown that these days can come again. That said the game has changed for supporters, the days of turning up paying your money and standing with your pals discussing the game have gone and the game is poorer for it.
  12. What are you wittering about, surely it's about the best people male or female for the position. You could argue that the team gender balance is appalling too, fact is we need 11 guys on the park. I'm sure if there were ladies out there with cash and football experience we would welcome them in a heartbeat.
  13. As the song says "you don't know what you've lost till it's gone" Hope all the JH detractors and the RF agitators are enjoying their football. In case you think I am unconcerned at the club's present plight, I'm not but sometimes "people get what they deserve and deserve to get it good and hard". That's a quote from H L Mencken. As I said on the Robbo rumuor mill if the board had any ambition about getting out of this division Robbo would not be our manager. We are now a championship club with a championship support and finances and spending beyond our means as are a number of other clubs. That cannot continue.
  14. Quote "Why would he leave one of the safest jobs in football and go back to the potential managerial merry go round that the Hearts spotlight would bring" Hmm lets see Scotty, substantially higher salary, player budget, a full stadium each home game, a great pool of players, a financially viable club going forward, a chance to become an iconic manager as well as a legendary player however, I agree with your first sentence I don't think Hearts would want him. I have never liked his style of play even when he inherited a very good team from Pele with the fortunate addition of Bingham he played the big switch ball that was the style used by Hearts during his playing days. Am not convinced he even has a style of football in mind when he sets up the team. I'm not sure about tempting him out of retirement either, he was probably the cheapest option, lived locally and was available in addition to being prepared to accept the cost cutting which was necessary, to my mind he has a pretty cushy number at ICT where I feel an acceptance of championship football for the foreseeable future is the board's mindset though it might not be admitted publicly. To be fair to the board we are financially outgunned by Dundee Utd, Dundee and Partick if they had any ambitions of premiership football I don't believe Robbo would be our manager.
