  1. Don't worry, he will find some terrible flaw to revel in.
  2. "Due to my history with the club, you'll always get a mention. What do you want me to say, that I want to run down the A9? "My job here is Inverness and I was out of the game for five years and they came and gave me an opportunity so my loyalty is to work hard, and keep working hard, at Inverness until I'm told differently." Well played, that man. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50336949
  3. Well, a perfect tonic for the new season.
  4. Yes, that was it! And he ran them ragged the whole game, that is my overriding memory, seeing him set off on his mazy runs. Great to watch.
  5. Come on, such a lack of belief for the first game in the season. We beat them last season, then ran out of puff at the end, coupled with some dire refereeing. No reason we can't match them if we play to our strengths and have a half-decent official. Good game to start with, to see where both teams are. I am assuming they will be the favourites so a good test, and a point or three would set our stall out nicely.
  6. He was a very exciting player to watch when he was with us, I seem to remember him destroying County one winter game. I have no idea if he is the same player now, but if he is, would definitely be worth a punt, though i would prefer to see him on some kind of trial first, rather than getting lumbered with a player if it doesn't work out. But if he is up to his old tricks, he could be very valuable as a supplier to the front line, as well as scoring a few himself. Would be fun if he comes back with that smile he used to play with, like he actually enjoyed playing for us.
  7. Hi Danylo, Although the old Inverness distilleries have gone, there are plenty within within easy reach of Inverness. Here are eight of them: https://theculturetrip.com/europe/united-kingdom/scotland/articles/8-distilleries-to-visit-in-and-around-inverness-scotland/ Of these I would recommend trying Glenmorangie, Macallan and Glen Moray. Cheers, or as we say 'slàinte mhath' (good health)! Does Ukraine produce vodka?
  8. You are rather missing the point of the article, which starts off as an amusing anecdote, using Berwick as an example of a club not understanding or profiting from social media (the volunteer social media person got sacked and is now in a well paid football job - so Berwick lost out from a potential boost which, who knows, they might have benefitted from). The Motherwell example is far more enlightening and relevant for clubs like us. Social media won't affect your results, but it *might* improve your profile, winning you fans from afar, as well as improving relations with your own fans, and in turn improve your finances.
  9. I'm not knocking them at all, but there are some interesting examples in that article of how you can reach fans outwith your own club.
  10. Here's a very interesting article, starting with Berwick, about social media and footy clubs: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jul/17/football-clubs-social-media-berwick-rangers-bayern-munich-roma-celtic-motherwell Motherwell sound quite switched on. Maybe our club could take some inspiration from the examples cited, particularly the philosophy of getting fans, not just from our club, involved.
  11. Cheers, Danylo, glad to hear you are still rooting for us. Should be an entertaining season. Top three?
  12. I expect Robbo is of the view that whatever the height of the challenge or the intent, studs were raised as he went in. It may look worse than it was, but they are very likely to rule it dangerous play whatever the appeal - it's one of those things that tends to be an automatic red whatever the circumstances and they are unlikely to give any latitude around.
  13. Not a disaster. Heads didn't go down, even after a rather fortuitous rebound. Polly was daft raising his boot that high. But we know what we have to do now, and we are capable of it. Should be an exciting match.
  14. Thankyou, Huisdean, for saying what needs to be said.
