Perhaps we are looking at the 25th anniversary celebration of a new club, a new beginning and the "burial" of Caledonian and Inverness Thistle. Of course there will be members of an older generation who still grieve and will always (totally understandably) hold dear the teams that they followed from their early years. I really don't think that there are any conspiracy theories and the "Blue" has become the colour of choice for the next generation. I bet if you had a poll the majority now would not give a feck as to the pre-merger memories and whinges.

Good try IHE another fishing expedition. Hope you get the odd bite 🐟

I was actually being serious. I will always have a "CaleytillIdie" mentality but lets face it many of US and our Jeggie equivalents have departed to the Howden End and The Shed in the sky. In 25 years, apart from any Immortals, there will be very, very few left.

This is not a merger argument...it's not even an argument IMO...it's about people expressing an opinion that the club has failed to properly recognise the clubs roots in both strips released for our 25th Anniversary.  Regardless of how good, bad or indifferent you think the strip is as a design...it can't be argued that it fairly represents the club's roots.

Also...why do we need to bury the events and histories of the clubs sacrificed to bring ICTFC into existence?  To try and do so is utterly disrespectful to those on all sides at the time, to those who moved forward and worked tirelessly to try and ensure it was a success and even to those who decided not to follow ICTFC.

The solution is pretty simple....FAIRLY represent the 109 or so years of history from BOTH the pre-merger clubs.  Do that and the constantly recurring "they get more recognition than them" issue goes away and all fans...young and old alike...can properly embrace all 134ish years of history.

One Great Club - Three Great Histories

Let's celebrate it, not obliterate it.

There are some very good fishermen on here, but there are others who are rank amateurs. 

IHE is at number 1 but TopSix does not make the topsix. 🐠
