  1. That was pretty woeful. Took a mate down to watch and he left at half time! First half looked nervous and devoid of any creativity. Ball spent most of the time being lumped into the air and then a series of head tennis. No one made any movement or created any space. They all looked to be waiting for someone else to do it. Dave Carson’s touch in first half was poor but he definitely improved. Not quite sure man of the match though! A shame Jack Brown who is now with the Fort, hasn’t been given a chance he has drive energy and great technique. Hopefully he’ll be back stronger after a season in adult football Rooney made some great bursts but seems to get past players with a mix of determination and complete luck. Second half was a bit better. White looked totally despondent when he came off - very interesting body language. Storey added a bit of pace but his touch in general play was rough. Todorov came on and whacked a few boys and looked like he wanted to fight. Overall, it’s worrying to see the ball lumped aimlessly from back to front so often. The times we did look like breaking them down it was through some decent passing and movement - there’s just not enough movement to create space - there were a lot of pedestrians out there - does that come down to attitude? Now off to find my pal who went to the pub
  2. Where’s a good place to watch the game in Inverness?
  3. TBH its been my first season down and I enjoyed quite a number of games. Watched a few duff ones but overall there was generally an intention to attack even if the execution wasn't quite up to it in every game. The games against County were pretty barnstorming - particularly the Dingwall scrap around Christmas. -tive The atmosphere isn't magic but the difference in watching a game at Highland RFC, where everyone gets behind and is very positive towards the team, and some of the abuse hurled at home players at ICTFC, was a bit of an eye opener. Yes you pay money and theoretically you can then yell what you want, but offering pearls of wisdom such as "You're sh*te" isn't exactly helpful or funny. Seems like a few grumpy folk winding themselves up even further! Cant be good for the blood pressure. +tive Enjoyed a lot of the U18 games. Shame they didn't get more of a run about in 1st team, but if they stick together there's a core who I'm sure can do something good for Inverness. Don't want to keep harking on about HRFC but out of their team thats just gone to Div 1 18 out of the squad 23 have come through their youth system. Its the way to go.

    They were beaten 4-0. No Cammy Harper, Harry Nicolson, Roddy MacGregor or Daniel but still a shock to the system!

    Reserve league not for everyone

    How many of them run U18s? Ayr, Queens do ....Livingston sometimes turned up...the others I’m not so sure. Very interesting position to address next season!

    Good result even if that wasn’t near their best performance. When they hit top form they can really pull teams apart but today definitely wasn’t their sharpest. Be good to see them progressing as a unit because they have a great spirit about them.
  8. Just looked at the beer offering. Looks magic
  9. I’ll be honest with you I didn’t follow Ictfc much in those days and certainly have no interest in what the boards and politics of the past have done (rightly or wrongly) Im coming from a completely neutral, but interested (have a kid in youth set up) viewpoint. I spent all my days down canal park and tbh still go there a lot. However, I have started going to Ictfc games this season and enjoyed it for the most part. Anyway it’s still worth reading the book just got the chapter on ibrahimović!
  10. have any of you read ‘The Barcelona Way’by Damien Hughes. Fascinating read on how a couple of people within Barcelona club created a commitment culture from top to bottom. It means you don’t go boom and bust. Brilliant read for anyone interested in sport or business
  11. Was reading this article this morning and wondered what people make of this idea - the role of the sports director and adoption of a club philosophy. I’ve been watching Highland rugby clubs success over the years and their structure and philosophy ie developing young players, totally amateur (no pay), respect for everyone at the club, and most importantly having fun, seems to be working well.
  12. That was a Superb performance and the right result. Played the better football, created the better chances and looked a quality team throughout. Excellent
  13. Under 18s haven’t had a lot of competitive games since November. They were top of the league and just lost out to Celtic on pens in the cup but since then there’s been very little. They played Hearts and unsurprisingly (due to rustiness) were beaten. Played against St mirren on Fri and were beaten 2-1 after beating them 5-1 down there. The winter break hasn’t been great for them but they’re still well clear at top of league. Could have done with getting a few of them on against East Kilbride when we were 3-0 up at half time. Tough league to fling them into but you’ve got to start somewhere!
  14. Tremendous entertainment over both games...infact every game against County has been barnstorming. Im fairly new to coming along to the games and I've really enjoyed the craic.
