  1. Junior, I'm not sure it's just the one player that's got people on the run. You know the straw that broke my back but, talking to people outwith these boards, I get the impression that, for the less tribally-minded supporter, watching the old team so thoroughly dismantled (and rebuilt in a somewhat shabby fashion) is sort of like seeing REM after Berry left: just not the same thing at all. I also get the sense that the 'cosier' feel the club had in the pre-SPL days is being missed; that's fine and probably as it should be (they're not, after all, a Highland League outfit any more) but if it's
  2. End of the line for my two season books - dreadful home performances have been making me think for a while that I could find a better use for the money, as has the treatment of some of my favourite players, but the killer was the Rangers scandal and, more to the point, the inaction, ineptitude and all-round deafening silence from footballing authorities and other clubs' boards. I care about ICT, but as a club participating in a fair footballing competition. What's happened over the last couple of months is a tacit admission that the competition is not fair, and may well not have been fair for
  3. When I moved to the Highlands - too many years ago to think about without a glass in my hand - my Dad bought me a season ticket as a going-away present. I went twice, that first season, but he persevered the following year and it paid off: I've made most home games since, including those dark runs to Pittodrie.

    Richie Foran

    Foran has been more a liability than an asset this season. If he's carrying injuries, that's one thing and it's up to the manager to rest him a bit, but to those saying that he bawls at players to gee them up, I say that you're not keeping an eye on what's happening. Nine times out of ten he bawls when someone has the temerity not to pick up his own misplaced pass or when their perfectly decent ball eludes his less-than-perfect first touch, or when they dare to pass to someone else. Chasing the game against (I think) Killie, he was in with a penalty shout with minutes to go - it wasn't given,
  5. Same GD, we're fifth in alphabetical order Is it not on goals scored? Hearts have put in one more than us. Anyway, getting as many points as possible between us and 12th place will do fine for me
  6. I wish you'd stuff the boycott. Not the same without you.
  7. There is a circle of hell reserved exclusively for McCurry and whoever that myopic dumpling running the the firth-side line was. Absolutely fizzing.
  8. Could it be that the reporter based his/her judgement on John Robertson's remarks on Radio Scotland in which he accused our players of conning the referee into where the tackle took place? Robbo got it badly wrong saying it was a stonewall penalty.... Maybe a wee bit of sour grapes creeping in now, because he didn't get the job. Couldn't comment on the reporting but I had the same feeling about Robbo listening to the analysis of the Celtic game - nothing you could really put your finger on but just not as fulsome as it had been before the appointment was made. I don't mean h
  9. Go on, I'll stand up and be pelted On Dragan's idea: <chanted> Butch and Maurice Malpas came up to Inverness Butch and Maurice Malpas to clean up Brewster's mess Mind the drums of the '45, Highland spirit still alive If you want to lift yer team, raise yer voice and sing with me Show 'em what we're here for Glory 2, 3, 4 <sung> [Chorus] Glory glory Caley Thistle [x3] Inverness go marching on on on! Play it down the left and Ross'll get ya that's for sure Pavels in the middle says yer never gonna score Grant and Lio laughing cos they've se
  10. The weather did it for me. Like Marty, I'm just in from a two-hour drive-clearing-and-gritting session which will see me as far as the ski-jump into which the untreated road down the hill has turned; as for public transport, the best Souter's finest can do on a Saturday teatime is deposit me a healthy seven-mile ramble from the front door. Yes, if I'd been prepared to pay for a taxi/helicopter/Lear jet I could have made it to the game but unfortunately, like most folk these days, I'm not in the position of having money to burn. Doesn't seem like a particularly lame reason to me. So t
  11. The Hokey Cokey, surely? Oh, no, that's a nasty song too. Ho hum. The Hokey Cokey is not bigoted or sectarian it was written about the way Canadian soldiers danced in London dance halls during the second world war. something to do with ice cream. The dance moves were based on Canadian soldiers dance styles. Wikipedia Hokey Cokey Letter to the "Times" from Hokey Cokey writer's grandson. Times article. So those paranoid Celtic fans can go look for another sectarian conspiracy now. Exactly. Any nasty implications for 'Highland Cathedral' or is that one safe?

  13. Sounds most likely. I'd love to say Aberdeen, but I'd also love to win the lottery and tell Kate Winslet to go home and get some sleep.
  14. Besides which I was a bit disappointed with his comments when he left.
  15. Thanks maimie - didn't expect any less when they announced the thing, but it's brilliant to hear people coming away so positive.
  16. Fleming went from Gretna's fire sale to be a reserve in League One, for money we probably couldn't afford for a reserve stopper. I'm not a Strachan fan, but he's right that the salaries away south can't be sustained.
  17. I think the signs at the stadium state that offensive language isn't to be tolerated, and you'll have heard that pre-match and half-time announcement about the club being responsible for the conduct of fans (please see the signs, blah blah blah). The trouble is, that leaves it up to what anybody finds offensive, and we get lowest-common-denominator stewarding. I went to a pal's house for tea when I was seven or eight, and they didn't allow the use of the word 'bottom'; I was amazed and asked if you were allowed to talk about the bottom of a glass; I didn't get ma tea and was home in five
  18. There are plenty of keepers warming benches but whether we can get them to warm our bench depends. If we're just throwing names about, Scott Davies at Morecambe. Played really well in the play-off semi-final and the final at Wembley, seems happy just now to warm the bench at Christie Park, and has no family commitments. Think we could afford him, too.
  19. I'm still wanting to know where this gentleman is: He attracted a mixed reaction too. I would have liked to sit with him and find out how he came to be there and where he got that voice.
  20. No, her specialty was pelting players who looked like they couldn't be bothered, with a pair of lungs used to shouting over the mill machinery from the age of twelve. The odd 'bloody' was there but nothing more. They took notice, too :thumb04:
  21. Not quite, trying to get the old wifies singing. I think old wifies probably count as working class - my granny did, at least.
  22. Going back to the start of the thread, you know we've had a few song suggestions over the seasons, and you know that Les's print shop might help out; does anyone think we could get some songs - clean ones, Alex - sorted out and some sheets printed up and put on seats for a a couple of home games as a bit of encouragement? Or printed in the programmes, Brian? Get the stadium announcer involved, and those cheerleaders who bizarrely arrived for the Celtic game (are they a continuation of the ones who used to be there with Viv?) and get some noise going which is acceptable both to the older f
  23. To give you an idea of what we have to endure in the Main Stand: From my seat I can see at least twelve people who look like they've never shouted in their lives. I can see another dozen who look like they'd give Chisholms some business if they shouted. Another two sixes look like they'd like to shout but are feart of the first twelve. The elderly lady in front of me (yes madam, I am the horrible person in row N, seat 6) once told me off for saying 'bloody' three times in quick succession of a Saturday afternoon, presumably to protect her grandson's delicate sensibilities. He loo
  24. Quite right Alex, but I'm not even talking about singing, just shouting "Come on Inverness" gets you some funny looks. The Celtic game was the first time for ages I've gone home hoarse, but I went home hoarse and feeling like I'd done something wrong shouting for my team. It's a shame.
