    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.

    Inverness CT -V- Ross County

    Best game I have seen this season, and some stand out performances, how Ridgers managed to save that shot in the first half was outstanding, also Calder was immense, that lad has some engine. Great to have a mobile striker like Oakley back, he gave old Draper a torrid time, and Polworth had his best game in ages. We were right in line with McKay when he was offside, but the blind stand side linesman couldn't see it. Did anyone else see him sprint to the tunnel at half time, it was hilarious? We could have and should have taken the three points but let's move on and keep the fine form going into the next game.

    Scotty ~ A Personal Statement

    So sorry to hear this terrible news. Stay strong and I wish you all the best with your treatment. I had a cancer scare early on in the year, but got the all clear.

    Inverness CT -V- Dunfermline

    We must be the slowest team in the league. Every team we play can counter at us with pace, and be at our box in a few passes, but we take forever to get any attack going, passing it back and forth along the back line until our opponents are back in their shape, and then we try to play through them, which we can't do as we don't have the guile or talent to beat a man and find the right pass. Too many of our players had a bad day and I lost count of the misplaced passes. We need to start taking more shots from outside the box, you never know what might happen, look at Dunfermline's second goal, what a scorcher, I can't remember the last time we scored one like that.

    These draws

    Although the unbeaten run is a good thing in one way; it shows we have a good keeper and defence, and they should get the plaudits, but if they were letting in 2 or 3 goals a game it would be a different story and I'm sure Robbo would look at changing the lineup or tactics, so why, when the front line is misfiring match after match does he seem reluctant to drop White? It has echoes of last season when Baird seemed to be his blue eyed boy, even though he couldn't hit a barn door with a banjo. I think we have become too predictable now, other teams know how we will play and near enough our starting 11 every game. I think it's time to throw in a few surprises, different tactics and personnel. If I'm not mistaken, when Dunfermline beat us in the Irn Bru cup did they not have several youth players in their lineup, so what's stopping us from giving ours a go.

    NoS Cup Final V County

    The game was totally destroyed by the wind, but county seemed to play it better in the second half against it. The segregation of the fans was laughable and unnecessary. We weren't allowed to use the same catering or toilets! I have been watching football since the 70's in the Highlands and have never come across this before, and the amount of police and stewards per head of supporter was way over the top. Not a great spectacle and I thought we might just get the draw at the end.

    Inverness CT - Morton

    Why did Robertson play the same eleven and same tactics as last week? when by his own admission it was our worst performance? , And why can't we show the same urgency from the start of the game that we showed in the last ten minutes, we might have created more chances? There was an old movie called 'White men can't jump', and that certainly applies to our Mr White, I have never seen a player who mistimes so many jumps. Calder should be banging on Robbo's door on monday asking why he can't get a start in that team, he mskes a difference every time he comes on.

    Inverness CT -V- QOS

    Well that was hard going, and the weather didn't help. I think we could have played till midnight and not scored. We really do have problems in the striking department. White doesn't seem able to jump to win a ball and his close control is non existent. We improved a little when Mackay and Austin came on but too little too late. The longer the game went on, the narrower we became. We need to stretch a rigid back four and that starts with wingers. Calder must deserve a chance to start and give us the width on the left, and the day Chalmers plays a forward pass can't come too soon. It's a point, but we need to get three at home.

    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.
