  1. Pre ordered a copy and donated.
  2. The lineup for the Jags was Sievwright, Fraser, B.Black, Cumming, Bremner, Milroy, A.Black, Newlands, Bruce, Drews aind MacLean. Subs Kenny Munro and Smith. Cumming was the player manager at this time.
  3. I didn't put the Jags as favourites to win the league in 1986-87 season, the were 8th the season before, but I was hoping that they could kick on to 3 or 4 in the league, but as the season progressed, they were playing some of the best football I had seen from a Jags team for some considerable time, and I saw them in every game, home and away in the league winning year. In fact, they went the whole league unbeaten, until the last game of the season when they fell to a home defeat to Peterhead. Some of the performances that season were breathtaking, and I put down to good recruitment. They had picked up Stevenson, Noble, Bain and Taylor and with a nucleus of already first team players of the calibre of Milroy, Black, Calder, and the emerging Charlie Christie, they had the makings of a really good side, and it came to a point that I couldn't see them getting beaten by anyone, I expected them to win every game. The 85 Scottish Cup defeat by Celtic wasn't the catalyst, but the round before when they beat Kilmarnock, when the Jags league form wasn't at its best, was maybe a sign of what they could do when they fired on all cylinders. My only regret is that I wish they could have gone on further with that group of players, but with injuries and some players leaving, it just wasn't to be. I thought that getting rid of Brian Black as manager was a very negative move, not just because he was an ex classmate of mine, but he deserved more time for bringing the title up the hill, but his replacement, Leishman, was the beginning of the end for the Jags. His recruitment was woeful and he got rid of some of our best players and didn't replace like for like.
  4. I have the Jags lineup but not the caley, or the scorers.
  5. It may be the scottish cup prelimary round 1 at telford st on 17 december 1977. 5-0 to caley.
  6. These are some of the match reports of the last Jaggies game at Kingsmills. I took photos of every viewpoint of the ground that day, I still miss those days so much, and to this day, I get a tear in my eye wherever I pass where Kingsmills Park stood.
  7. Here is my cherished last Jaggies programme. My son got all the players to sign it. The game, which went by in a flash, was for me quite numbing. I just tried to take in the fact that never again would I be able to attend my beloved Kingsmills Park.
  8. Unfortunately, I'm now on the sheilding list as my immune system has been shot, and I'm on steroids. I'm not allowed to leave the house, or come in contact with anyone, but my son lives near by. So, I only hope that I'm in better shape when the football starts again, I would hate to miss my saturday fix.
  9. Hi, I haven't been on here for a while. Unfortunately I was admitted to Raigmore Hospital with a virus, thankfully not Covid 19, but it was serious enough to be rushed in. I got home last monday and I am now recuperating well. I have an autographed programme of that last Jags game, one of the saddest days of my life, and I took a lot of photos. I also have numerous match reports of that very surreal day. I will try and dig them out and post them over the next few days. My son was 13 at the time and celebrates his 40th birthday this month, April, how time has flown.
  10. It has to be David Raven's goal against Celtic in the Scottish Cup Semi Final. What emotion, it was overwhelming, as was Vincent's in the final, but that day we were playing Celtic, and even with 10 men, I thought that they still had a chance to come back. I have lived through the greatest time in ICT history, cup finals, cup wins, top three finishes in the league and European football, although it would be nice to think that we could achieve those heights again, I just think that all the planets were in align for us over that period, and we had some outstanding players, but Raven's goal is at the top for me.
  11. I heard this week of the sad passing of former Inverness Thistle player, captain, manager and legend Ian Cumming. He was the driving force in the midfield of the great Jags teams of the 70's. He was a player who could read the game well, who could play some neat football, could take a good penalty and could mix it if the game required it. I am so glad that I had the privilege of watching him play and meeting him. Another legend from the past sadly gone.
  12. Such sad news from a player who is still relatively young in this day and age of footballers. Greg was one of the finest midfielders to wear the ICT shirt who was the whole package. He could read the game well, amazing free kicks, penalties and passing, he could also mix it when he needed to. He was on our team at one of the quiz nights and came across as a very friendly guy. I really hope he finds a way to persue whatever path he takes next. All the best Greg and thanks for the memories.
  13. A very enjoyable Saturday afternoon in the sunshine at the stadium. There were some really good performances by the whole team, but for me, Welsh, Walsh, Vincent and Rooney stood out, and although White missed a sitter, you can't deny his work rate, he runs for everything. Yes we could have scored more goals, but to have another clean sheet more than makes up for that, as it keeps our goal difference in the pluse.
  14. Yes, I would have to have Keatings in the first eleven, I think he will be a very big player for ICT this season. Apart from linking the play and a goal threat, his corners and free kicks will contribute to a lot of goals.
  15. Another very enjoyable listen. Amusing and good varied content. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to the next one.
