    NoS Cup v Forres

    It was the first time I have seen a lot of these players, and I was impressed by Brown and Macgregor, and of the lads I had seen before, Mackay, Calder and Macart looked good. I can see some of them making a bid for the first team during the season.

    Who would you like to see at ICT next season?

    I thought that he had real potential when we saw him at the start of last season. He wasn't given much game time by Robertson.

    NoS Cup v Forres

    Definitely going to this game. I'm not taking Forres lightly, but I hope to see a win and some goals.

    Come Monday Morning

    The team did look rudderless today, on and off the park. We used to be a team full of leaders, but we are now sorely lacking in someone to take the team by the scruff of the neck of drag them through to a victory. Robertson has been critical of his players, and rightly so, but he must also shoulder some of the blame. Surely the buck stops with the manager, it's his coaching and tactics. Is it not the case as, win as a team, lose as a team?

    Penalties

    The strange thing is, just before we were awarded our second penalty, I said to my son, who will take it now Welsh is off. Most strikers will wrestle the ball of others to get the ball and get their total up, but not ours. I have no idea why Welsh was subbed, he was playing well in the middle.

    Inverness CT -V- Alloa

    Wow, where do you start with that display? I thought we started well, but we do that in a lot of matches, and when we don't capitalise and score in that time, it always comes back to bite us in the end. I thought we should have started with two wide men, there was an unbalance in the team. Tremarco and Walsh were bombing down the left and only Rooney on the right, and he was exposed on numerous occasions. I have said it before on here, is Rooney any better than Seedorf? I don't think so, and giving away that penalty was just criminal. If Robertson is going to play Polworth (how he stayed on the whole game baffles me, does he have some hold over Robertson?) Welsh (who was our best in the centre of the park)and Chalmers ( who was anonymous most of the game), in the middle of the park, he needs to sacrifice a forward for a wide player. And as for the forwards, I just don't think that Austin and Oakley look like a pairing that will get us a lot of goals in a season. Why are they not fighting to get the ball and take the penalty, after Robertson had taken off the player who scored the first one. Most strikers love getting their name on the score sheet, but ours seem to hide when we are looking for someone to step forward. And as for White, did he touch the ball? I have come to the conclusion now that Ribertson has no idea how to play against 10 men, at times i thought that Alloa had the numerical advantage, we were our predicable and ponderous style, slow build up and waiting till the opposition is in place and try to play through them. It doesn't work Robertson!!!. We need pace, two wide men, control the midfield and close teams down. We have now played the two teams that were promoted last season, they both went down to 10 men and on both occasions we couldn't beat them. I think the best we can look forward to now is a mid table finish, and we can't even look forward to winning the Irn Bru cup this season because of Robertsons stupidity.

    He's One Of Our Own

    Well it wasn't Col Donaldson, I saw him walking his dog, but it might have been Ryan Christie, as he never even made the squad for the cup game v partick

    I'm trying to work out If you post these because you like to be controversial, or like collecting red dots, or that you actually believe them.

    Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    Absolutely spot on. This defeat was of Robertsons making, wrong team and wrong tactics. He should have been man enough to admit that he got It wrong and not treated the only cup we had a realistic chance of winning this season, In such a blaźe way.

    Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    Totally agree with you. It Is down to the coaching, and It doesnt matter who knocks on the managers door, he Is the boss, the manager picks the team, the players dont pick the team. Is he saying he bowed to player pressure and thats why there were so many changes.

    Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    I agree with you, when we get control of the ball we seem to wait till the other team are all behind the ball and back In their shape and then try to play through them, It just doesnt work, while our opponents always seem to counter quickly with pace with our defence stretched.

    Has John Robertson and ICT given up on post match interviews? I ďont think I have seen any this season. Does anyone know?

    Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    Surely the club wanted to at least get through to the second round of the cup they won last season? So why did Robertson change so many players? Especially considering that we don't have a game thìs Saturday. We went all out to win this trophy last season by playing our best eleven, so why did we not give it our alĺ this time? Again, it was obvious that the team needed width, which only happened when Walsh was introduced as a sub in the second half, that gave us Calder on the left and Walsh on the right snd they started to get behind their back four and get crosses in. We had so many chances just begging for the right touch, but no, it wasn't to happen, and then Polworth gives the ball away on the half way line, and the rest is history. I know it's early in the season, but I'm having a bad feeling about this season already.

    Inverness CT -V- Ayr Utd

    For me, it's the pace of the team that is the most worrying thing. Even last season, most teams would break on us with pace and could be threatening our defence in a couple of passes, while we seemed to wait till our opposition regrouped into their shape and then tried to play through them, which we couldn't do on numerous occasions. I agree with some posts on here that said we didn't stretch the Ayr back four enough, especially after they were down to 10 men. We had Walsh set up on the left and it looked like Polworth was on the right, where it is obvious that he doesn't feel comfortable to play, as he drifts into the middle, leaving only Rooney to give us that width on the right. He struggled to get behind their defence and his crosses were not too good. We really need to find someone to hug that right touchline and maybe sacrifice a striker to have an extra man in midfield. In my opinion, maybe we could try Walsh on the right and give Calder or Ebouzedi the left flank and have Doran or Polworth playing in the hole, to support the main striker. We were just too narrow, ponderous and predictable yesterday, let's hope we can sort it out before Dunfermline come calling on Tuesday.

    Inverness CT -V- Ayr Utd

    We always bought a programme every game, and bought our food from the catering outlet, now, because they have changed things so much, we eat before we come to the stadium, and obviously cant buy a programme, so thats lost revenu there, I wonder how many more fans do the same.
