  1. Arguably our best result of the season so far. That's the second time we've completely outclassed Ayr. It's bizarre that they're in such a lofty position. Wouldn't surprise me if they end up finishing mid table. Tremarco impressed at right back, MOTM for me, haven't seen him play so well since we were in the SPL. Would be inclined to leave the entire back 4 unchanged next week. Chalmers and Welsh were also outstanding, completely bossed the midfield. Hopefully a little more luck and a few less muggings in the second half of the season should see us sneak back into the title race.
  2. A familiar story. Virtually the same formation and starting 11 every week regardless of performance or opposition. Slow ponderous build up play. Pub league profligacy in front of goal. 3 sitting central midfielders who barely run at all. Too many players out of gas with 20 minutes to go. I don't blame the players, man for man ICT are one of the best teams in this league and played Ayr and County off the park for long spells. Robertson has recruited well for the most part. The problem is - game plan, tactics, organization, leadership, mental sharpness and fitness. The wastelines of our coaching
  3. I think by and large John Robertson has done a good job for us so far and believe he has the ability to take us back to the Premier League... however... his post match comments yesterday evening were LUDICROUS. His criticism of Ricky Calder was absolute tosh. Calder was by far and away the best player on the park yesterday. If he doesn't start our next game on the left flank I'll be astonished.
  4. Remember the Howden End going ballistic when he scored this late winner. The good old days!
  5. What an obscene overreaction to a light hearted post trying to bring some levity to the thread. You're the one being miserable and abusive. If you find Kevin the teenager offensive I don't know what to else to say.
  6. Adolescent teenagers acting the hard man and shouting / singing obscenities at matches is part and parcel of Scottish football culture I'm afraid. Nothing new here. These lads are probably only a couple of years removed from watching Mr Tumble and Peppa Pig. Don't take it to heart. Don't ban them. Confiscate their gaming consoles for a week - the problem will stop!
  7. From what I saw today I'd happily play against a team with Lawrence Shankland upfront every week.
  8. Frustrating result, bossed the game but lacking composure and luck in front of goal. Subbing Dylan Whyte for Nathan Austin seemed a strange decision, surely would have made more sense to remove a defensive player with Ayr parking the bus. Ending the match pinging crosses into the box for 2 target men summed us up today - bereft of ideas to break down a stubborn defense. Still can't be too harsh. The unbeaten run continues, 2 clean sheets in a row, and a point against a much hyped opponent.
  9. Caleythistleonline can no longer contain IHE's drunken posting sprees. Pie and Bovril represents humanities last hope. Lord help us if this boy ever gets a Reddit account. r/Romania moving to Defcon 2 as we speak.
  10. On an average Pie and Bovril thread you have to scroll through page after page of GIFs, memes, and vacuous posts to find something worth reading. 90% of posters have absolutely nothing to contribute, but spam every thread they enter with incessant nonsense. Even the 'good' posters write like insufferably smug, snarky, first year undergraduate sociology students who think they're archie. I've noticed many of the "I'm off P and B where my witty posts will be appreciated" crowd here attempting to imitate the 'cool kids' on P and B, and failing miserably. This forum has plenty of roasters to
  11. I think the hot weather is driving everyone on this forum insane.
  12. Scott Kellagher has had more promotions than Elgin City in their entire history.
  13. Some mod with editing skills might want to move the discussion developing here regarding crowd figures to it's own thread, in the meantime here are my 2 cents. 80% of fans attending games couldn't name anyone on the board, and couldn't care less about social media or engagement. They just care about what's going on on the pitch. It's just the hardcore fans who have strong views on this stuff IMO. The biggest obstacles preventing Inverness from attracting higher crowds are: 1) The stadium. It's location is picturesque, the architects blueprints looked spectacular, and at the time of i
  14. Not sure why someone approaching their 60th birthday would decide to move to one of the most dangerous, violent countries in the world. The language / culture barrier alone would put most off, let alone the drug gangs and vigilante 'death squads'. Good luck Terry!
  15. There are some very talented singers in Gunnies.
