    January signings

    I am old enough to have watched football in the Highlands from the 60's and have seen many a good player throughout the years playing in the Highland League. A lot of players were plucked from the league and went on to play in the top leagues in Scotland and England. Donald Park, Roddy MacDonald, Des Bremner and Les Fridge, to name but a few, were playing for Highland clubs and were scouted by big clubs, so why can we not unearth some quality player playing there now? There must be good players in the HL who would love a chance of furthering their careers and play at a higher level. You can't tell me that they would be any worse than some of the players that were brought here from the JH period onwards.

    So WHAT do you know about Kilby ?

    We just have to remember what happened to a number of premier clubs in England in the last round of the F.A cup, if you don't respect your opponent. We need to approach this cup tie with the same work rate and passion as if we were playing one of the top sides, and then, we will hopefully get the right result. Remember, Celtic only beat them 2-0 in the Scottish cup in 2016, because they were well organised, and we know what can happen when you don't approach the game in the right way, as I think we were guilty of when we got knocked out of the Irn Bru cup by Dunfermline, who I believe had seven youth players in their ranks.

    Inverness CT -V- Queen of the South

    I have been saying this for most of the games I have seen in the last couple of seasons, how come our opponents can cut through us like a knife through butter and be in our box in one or two passes and score or get a shot away, while we wait till they are back in their shape, pass it across the pitch and back, and then try to play through them, with no pace or desire? That's great if you have players that can take on a man and beat him, but we don't. The tactics are wrong, the team selection is wrong, but Robbo can't or won't change it. On the odd occasion when we have broke with pace, we have scored or at least had a chance, but these are few and far between. Maybe Robbo needs to buy a job lot of County masks, and make our opponents wear them, so the players think they are playing County every week and up their game!!!

    Inverness CT -V- Queen of the South

    Another hard watch. We were trying to think when the last time we had a good 90 minutes at home, we gave up! It's the same old same old, we score, we sit back and let the opposition come onto us. Robbo has no plan B. He seems to not want to use subs early, even when it's painfully obvious that things need to change. We have too manysplayers who know they will be playing week after week, because of our small squad. It's high time to play the young players, they at least would have more energy and play for the shirt. We are now slipping down the league as the teams beneath us start picking up points. Watching football in Inverness has never been this bad, and we have Ayr next week, I hope Shankland isn't back.

    January signings

    If we bring in any new players in the January transfer window, they need to be better than the ones we already have, they need to improve the team and push us on. I remember Hughes saying he would only sign players that were better than what we had, and then brought in duffer after duffer. Robbo needs to use the money, if there is any, wisely. If the players aren't available, he should show his trust in our youth. I am old enough to remember Donald Park, Tichy Black and Davie Milroy, to name but a few, playing for their school teams in the morning and their respective Highland League clubs in the afternoon, it certainly didn't do their careers any harm.

    Good wishes to Scotty

    Hope everything goes well for you, and a speedy recovery. All the best.

    Inverness CT -V- Dundee Utd

    In the first half we tried to play our way forward, in the second half United were on top because they had a passing game. More often than not, when we managed to get control of the ball outside our penalty box, we just hoofed it upfield to nobody and United started another attack with some slick passing. That just puts more and more pressure on our defence, and if it wasn't for Ridgers we would have been beaten yesterday. When we get our passing game together we score goals, but it is all to seldom that it happens now, we just seem to want to defend our one goal lead. We need players who are brave on the ball, beat a man and get a shot away. Too many times in recent matches, there have been opportunities for players to take a shot, but for some reason they pass It on to the next man and then the next man and the chance has gone. Why don't we just have a shoot on sight policy when we get near their goal, you never know where ricochets will go?

    Inverness CT -V- Dundee Utd

    We never turned up after the break. It was only a matter of time before United scored, they were the far better team in the second half and I think we were lucky to get away with a draw in the end. We can't seem to hold onto a lead, and start going further and further back to defend it. I really can't see us getting to the play offs with the standard of football we are playing.

    Edinburgh City - Scottish Cup

    I will be there as usual in the main stand, along with my son. I never miss a home game. My son always says he can tell what kind of game we have witnessed by the sound of my voice on the way home. If it's been a frustrating game, I have usually lost my voice by shouting, so I hope I still have my voice at the end of this game.

    Inverness Ct -V- Falkirk

    What a shambles of a team. We seem to have no desire, no drive. If we played like we did for the first goal we would blow teams away. Quick slick passing and into a dangerous position in the blink of a eye, and goal, then we slip back into our slow ponderous style, passing it back and forth across the back line. If we needed a win, why do we play with two defensive midfielders and one striker? So much for Robbo saying he would throw the youngsters in, they couldn't play any worse than this lot. We made the bottom club look good.

    All Clubs Attendance records

    The match for the dependants of Joopie Mitchel was held on the 11th of May 1968. Celtic won 6-1 with Huidean Lazenby getting the goal for the Thistle/Caley select, and Wallace 2, Gemmil 2 and Murdoch 2 for Celtic. It was Indeed at Telford Street with an amazing 10,000 crowd. Jock Stein took up the whole European cup winning squad for the game.

    I was there as a 15 year old, amazed at the oasis of light that Kingsmills was that night, due to It being the only place lit up that night as we were going through electricity blackouts and the three day working week. We walked from Hilton, and all you could see was the glow from Kingsmills. What a great spectacle It was.

    Partick -V- Inverness CT

    A great three points at last in the battle of the Jags. Ridgers has certainly earned his place as a fans favourite now. Still unbeaten, but with three points in the bag this time, and we're up to fourth.

    Riccardo Calder Assault

    Calder's actions and court verdict left the club with no other option but to cancel his contract. He was given a chance to come here and get his career back on track, and it seemed to be happening for him this season, and now, in one violent incident, he has not only blown his chance, but did something that will affect the rest of his life. He must now accept the sentence the court gives him, and in time, try and resurrect his career. Other players from other clubs have committed serious offences, Lawson, Goodwillie, and gone on to play for Scottish clubs, so he may get another chance somewhere else, depending on the outcome of the sentence. It is a very sad and very serious situation for all concerned.

    Inverness CT -V- Ross County

    Could'nt agree more, these three are certainly fans favourites now, and Bell gave us energy and different option going forward.
