ICTFC Squad Update 21/22


Recommended Posts

The rumour suggests that Toddy was offered a deal by the club but he turned it down. Seems he wants to move back to the central belt for family reasons.

For those not wishing Carl well, I ask them what they would do if they were sacked by their employer and were offered employment at an even higher level by the only other similar employer in the area

Only greed and self interest stops there being 2 national divisions of either 16 or 18 with North and South regional divisions beneath.

It would appear that you are very much in the minority with such a negative view. Personally, I am more enthused about the new season than I have been for some time.

Statement regarding departures finally released. Better late than never I suppose...surprised about Martin MacKinnon leaving though, thought he'd kick on and play as backup to Cammy after Ridgers calls it a day or moves on.

“The club can confirm that James Vincent, Kevin McHattie, Nikolay Todorov, Martin MacKinnon and Shane Harkness will be leaving us this summer. 

Nikolay Todorov and Martin MacKinnon were offered improved contract extensions but decided to move on. “

Mentions later that Storey has been offered a new contract but no conclusion on that either way, with Dodds having spoken to him on Thursday and again last night.

With Aaron Doran and Cammy Mackay reporting for training, that implies they are likely to sign new deals.

Maybe they already have but no one told us??? 
 

Really disappointing that Toddy has chosen to move on. The others are not a great surprise and we can now focus on plugging the gaps in the squad.

As a regular poster on here states, we need to find a number 9, even if the player does not wear that number (given McDonald has that squad number…).

Old story, so they were crap first, surely we would have learnt from their mess rather than follow it with our own.

Hopefully we don't go out and over spend to replace the departed players because there are youngsters capable of stepping up imho :ictscarf:

I imagine we will probably see an experienced striker signed, possibly a Left Back too. 

I trust that Billy Dodds will be working on targets and trying to get them in quickly enough that they settle in long before our first game of the League Cup.

There's no chance of us overspending and we have Harper and Deas who can play LB. That's possibly the last area that's needs more players.

I can see us looking at a CB (to replace Mckay), maybe a RB (so Carson can return to midfield and Duffy could act as a CB), an attacking midfielder and I guess we are looking at two strikers now.

Can't overspend when you haven't spent a penny since probably 2008 when we bagged Dougie Imrie from Clyde

Based on his social media posts it seems Miles Storey is moving on despite having been offered a deal by the club.

I suspect it might have been a reduced offer. For a supposed senior/experienced player he didn’t really make enough impact since his return.

If Storey is away, we've lost eight first team players since the end of the season - Brad McKay and Kevin McHattie in defence, Scott Allan and James Vincent in midfield and Nikolay Todorov, Daniel Mackay and James Keatings in attack (I don't think Arron Lyall contributed enough to be called a first team player)

 

I'd argue that we need to replace all eight. I think it would be ambitious to rely on Nicolson, Fyffe and Hyde to have the same impact that Harper, MacGregor and Daniel Mackay had last season.

 

We've brought back Walsh, so that leaves another seven holes to fill.

 

The current squad (only players who have played competitively for the first team listed)

Goalkeepers: Mackay, Ridgers

Defenders: Carson, Deas, Devine, Duffy, Fyffe, Harper, Nicolson

Midfielders: Allardice, Hyde, MacGregor, Welsh

Attacking midfielders: Doran, McDonald, Walsh

Strikers: Sutherland

 

We certainly need reinforcements at CB, either RB or CM (depending on where Dodds wants to play Carson), and up front and a guy who can play the no. 10 role as well.

Of course we spend. Maybe not on transfer fees but on signing on fees and wages.

Billy Mckay has re-signed on a 2 year deal. Hopefully that means ICT will have a goalscorer again

That'll do for starters. Hope he settles quickly this time.

Well worth a punt at Championship level and can be used sparingly as an impact substitute in the Premiership during the second year of his contract.

If he can be as effective as he became in his first spell, he will be an asset.

It took him a while to start scoring first time round, and he didn’t get that many when he rejoined us in our relegation season (although I recall a cracker against Rangers if my memory is correct), so as others have said I hope he hits the ground running.
