  1. This is the end of the Muirfield Mills @ ICTFC era. It was a much heralded arrival, although initially shadowy in its existence, it excited many, but ultimately what did this reign deliver to our 25 year old club? The achievements, successes, follies & setbacks will no doubt be discussed & debated by supporters far and wide. There has been a fair amount of manoeuvring behind the scenes over the past few months. These resignations are hardly a big shock. A duo & an individual, whom have considerable funds to plug the gaping financial chasm & in time, drive t
  2. Mixed feelings regarding County's relegation. Having zero Highland clubs in the top tier of Scottish football isn't great for many reasons. It does however, give us some respite from their fans gloating and from having the upper hand in attracting some players. Though they may still hold that advantage with financial clout. They will have parachute payment + Celtic Euros alongside McGregors bucks. Although strong and reputable chatter about Roy's diminishing involvement both as Chair + financially over the next few seasons should concern the Staggies ranks. I believe Vigurs opt
  3. The only constant is change. Change has to be "managed". Therein lies the problem.....
  4. Is this a 'called for Sgm' reps + CJT Board meeting only?
  5. I am actually saddened by the incompetence of these recent CJT attempts at communications. Awful, just rank awful standards. Talk about operating in ever decreasing circles!! These are the very same people on the board, pretty much. They have just jiggled about a bit, so to speak. Dear oh dear, the collective arrogance and contempt they must have for supporters and values are starkly obvious. It is embarrassing for the Club and for it's proud supporters and just about everything connected to ICT to have a Supporters group run in such an odious and in a fashion akin to
  6. Very worrying that financially the Club is still in such an insecure state. New money is still required to come in from external sources to enable the Club to even remain solvent. The current board admit that to be the stark reality of the current financial situation. Take of the gloss of the statement and it can be viewed as akin to waving the white ( financial ) flag. Is this an admittance that they have done all they can, invested all they have / all they are willing to. Frightening times indeed. Those fresh sources of money seemingly have to see their new money go
  7. Ask yourself who would you rather defend against? Baird or Oakley. My response would be Baird every time. Oakley would be a total nightmare to defend against. Great physicality, powerful strong running, good work rate, a total nuisance for any defender. Oakley is better in the air, brings others into play well, chases + harasses defenders pressurising them. Ok, George can sometimes be a little naive in his positional sense, most notably when we don't have the ball but he is definitely developing. I like Baird too, I just do not see him playing as a lone striker an
  8. I agree wholeheartedly with your post Charles. The ICTFC Social Club has seriously declined in terms o f it being a good place for ICT fans to enjoy a blether + a drink. Dismayed by the picture of the Abestos Stadium and the scene you describe as a type of place where Rangers followers dwell is, tragically I may add, become commonplace at the Club. That has driven many people away and they are not returning.
  9. Delighted for all involved with ICTFC at this announcement. I view it as great news and great business for the club and a major platform from which to continue our clubs history from. In my mind, Tulloch have been an absolute God send, for want of a better term, for our club. I admit, I was a little sceptical of Muirfield Mills and Rae being at the helm initially, but their endeavours should be roundly and loudly applauded.
  10. On reading accounts of the recent AGM, was it even legal / accepted under society rules? Board members should be prepared for an AGM, know the rules etc. 700 members, majority of whom seem to have not been even contacted ? Can the board nominate and elect a new board member when it is so complicit in bringing the rules of t h e association into disrepute. ( absolutely no offence intended to Mr Sim ). This is quite shameful and the CJT board for whatever reason (s) appear to have acted inappropriately. How has it slipped into such a shameful state of affairs
  11. Inversneckie Sports Breaking News Like Min' Connor McGregor's management team just off the phone looking to set up a brawl with Polly! Kellacher interested in moving down a weight division or two to get in a bout it with Cornish (pasties)! Seriously though..... All football clubs at all the various levels have their fights, brawls and altercations, but ffs not in front of the paying spectators and media lenses if you can help it. Robbo needs to get a grip on the gripes in that squad, far too many bad vibes from certain players leaking out.
  12. Both Susan and Collin Seedorf are currently receiving treatment for injuries.Not thought to be serious injuries, more niggling than persisting. They are about at the club, they attend games, light training / physio work permitting and could be back in a couple of weeks. Probably Seedorf back ahead of Susan.
  13. Susan, on returning from injury appears to have picked up another knock and may be out for another couple of weeks minimum.
