    The Liam Polworth Enigma

  2. Can’t believe we still refer to investments. These are donations as an investment usually means a return plus interest! These are donations and I am under the impression that the Muirfield boys have injected a decent wedge thus far. I like Robbo, he is honest about what we have and given time I think he will do well. He is committed so let’s crack on. Great performance today, amazing how different everyone’s demeanour is on here and leaving the ground.

    The Liam Polworth Enigma

    Mmmmm. Father and Polly’s grandparents in North Stand today. Cynic would say we’re they there to watch his last game? Think he took a nasty impact to the wrist and then a knock on the heel so sub was probably wise. Flashes of good play from him but at times a tad frustrating again. As the topic says.....enigma.

    Inverness CT -V- Ayr United

    Wholeheartedly agree. White was a different man today, good goal. Chalmers was MOM, McHattie I thought a great performance. A bit of heart today, hard fought and well deserved.

    A number on here go on about his vision and movement but unless you sit and watch one plaster all game I’m not sure about the validity of issuing those kind of statements. Yes, a huge amount of assists. But also a lot of missed, slack passes. And yes, you can argue that he plays the right ball and it is the teammate who has not anticipated the pass. But you could argue that a good player has the understanding of the squad about him too. I think Liam has reached a point in his career, like we all do, where a change would do him good and I hope he kicks on from there in all seriousness. But I don’t agree we’ve brought it on ourselves. I think the club need to consider a crowdfunding angle if finances are as bad as rumours say they are. 2000 maybe chipping in £50 for use in the club may free up some cash for wages? And yes, absolutely we should get behind the locals, youngsters or anyone and I think the time is coming where they should be blooded for experience but also to get the crowds buzzing again. 3 points today would be a start......must go and get my seat!

    Next Season

    Valid points all and whilst I agree, what impact do we think this “acceptance” of our position will have on attendances? As we all know, reduced attendance is lower revenue and it goes from there. Or would improved product, in terms of football,/ entertainment and excitement perhaps bring the crowds back or at least sustain numbers where they are I wonder? 🤔

    Inverness CT -V- Queen of the South

    We had a mass clear out on youth post Butcher/ Yogi I think but to say we have nothing coming through seems counter productive with respect. Macgregor on the bench has had game time, Daniel Mackay too. Ryan Fyffe promising center back biding his time, I think Harper is also a product of the youth development. We need to watch we don't throw the proverbial baby out with the bath water here.

    Inverness CT -V- Queen of the South

    I must confess yesterday left me almost as gutted as losing in Dinge Wall. I genuinely (naively?) believe that our players have shown themselves to be as good as any other in the league on occasion. Problem is we aren’t doing that with consistency and like many I just think tactically we are crying out for a change. We seem so pedestrian in attack with no real urgency to get forward and in behind and most of our goals have come from a quick passing movement not the laborious slow build up we seem to favour. I can’t remember a game where we have had a series of balls played in front for someone to run on to, our strikers seem to have the ball played mainly when they are facing away from goal - fine if they are then laying of to someone on a burst but this isn’t happening. Other results went our way Friday/ Saturday but we didn’t capitalise and it is now going to take a big effort for the players to step up every week or we are mid table at best. Big game v Ayr, obvs, and a “must win” again. In terms of a squad, we must get behind the boys and support but they also have to do their bit; but that must include the coaches/ Robbo giving them the right shape and tactics.

    Ryan Fyffe who would be central defence, Cameron Harper at LB I think. Tough for young defenders due to the physical challenge to break through but they probably have that extra yard of pace....

    Oooft. Not sure if this is positive or not. He could be good but very streaky and the last thing we need right now is more inconsistent forwards. 🤔

    Ross County -V- Inverness CT

    I’ve heard from a fairly reliable source that he did actually get 2 reds though haven’t seen any confirmation yet. But yes, an absolute walloper 💯

    Ross County -V- Inverness CT

    Aye, the video is on the Staggies page and I’m still confused on Rooney. Was it across the far side after the initial incident? Spoke to someone who reckons he nutted someone but footage inconclusive. Graham attempted to nut Rooney in Dingwall last time......🤔

    Ross County -V- Inverness CT

    I don’t feel he lacked composure in any facet of his play tbf but there we are. I agree Polly was quiet but not convinced that was down to him being controlled by Draper. It’s like yesterday though, boys round me moaning for Jordan to be hooked after he scored so as I said everyone sees differently. 😎

    Ross County -V- Inverness CT

    Walsh lacked composure? He was stand out for me 💯 and IMHO he terrorised their defence. I thought Draper was poor. But hey, that’s football, we all see things differently. Fact remains we dominated and came away defeated. If we could recreate the atmosphere from today at home, wouldn’t it be tremendous 🤔
