    I don't have any more answers than you do, or anybody else. Of course I am in favour of open communication and transparency. But it is also easy to sit in your armchair and blame the board, whilst at the same time expecting them to come up with large amounts of money, much as i would like them to. You have a load of questions/implications there of which I haven't the slightest idea of their veracity or accuracy. Contrary to your suggestions i don't have any qualms about hurting anybody's feelings, or think they are gods, or anything other than people not that different from the rest of us. If change is needed let's hear about it, and let's have it. But I would prefer it is based on some actual facts and not the reams of wild speculation that tends to fly about here. If you want answers to those questions, then you won't get them here, perhaps open up some communication with the board yourself. Hopefully the resurrected Supporters Trust will be doing exactly that, and i will be very glad to support them doing so, where we can hopefully have a collaborative dialogue. But if anybody thinks running a Scottish football club in the Championship is easy, on low crowds such as ours, you are welcome to contribute your ideas.

    I am not aware of any our board members who think there is any financial gain to be had from being on the board, or have active business ventures which could possibly benefit. How would that even work? Some of them have dipped their hand into their own pocket, but there is obviously a limit to that.

    Ridgers has become so good, he will surely attract attention from other clubs. I hope we tie him down with a generous contract. Great day, we were due a bit of fortune.

    Alloa and DU winning - would be a great day if it all stays the same...

    Inverness CT -V- Ross County

    That's twice we have outplayed them, deserved a win but got the draw. Those 4 points would have made a nice difference. But keep going like that and we will do alright. We're going the right way. And remember the disparity in budgets between the two teams.

    think he might get a run out, but the priority will be to have him fit for Saturday, and not get any setbacks tonight.

    Robbo was singing their praises in that BBC interview last week, and is keen to see some of them progress through the ranks. Could be exciting times to come.

    Where are our subs at Robbo?

    It's a pity that the post match interviews Robbo used to do that were posted here don't appear any more. That was exactly the kind of thing he would explain his reasoning on, and I have no doubt that he did have his reasons.

    Without Fox that would have been a drubbing for the moneybaggers.. Mind you, Ridgers did his own heroics at the end there.

    From the BBC match report: Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Robertson: "I thought we totally dominated the match for an hour, created all the best chances in the first half, played some lovely football and cut through them for fun. We just couldn't get it past Foxy - I thought he had a terrific game. "We played the better football, created better chances but just didn't take them. In the end it's a good point - it's away and it's a derby game but we would have liked to have won. But to come to a club that's spent double the budget we've spent and be the better side shows that we are going to be at the right end of the table." As ever, good summary from Robbo. Very happy to be the better side, at less than half the cost. Moreover, a younger side with more to come as they mature together.

    Good stuff. Remember the doom and gloom after Hearts - now look where both clubs are. Sets up next week beautifully. BTW what happened to Robbo's post match interviews? I used to enjoy his forthright views.

    You are so cynical and defeatist. Nothing the club does is good enough for you.

    I would also like point out the lad has called Inverness "a real paradise", so that promotes him to ambassador at least: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/45289943 We have also signed a lad from Lewis, but he hasn't said anything about the other worldly qualities of Inverness, so I guess he is more of a foreigner. But seriously, the investment in youth and their encouraging results is an exciting development for the future. Bring them on.
