  1. ICTFC 18/19

    Heard from a few places that James Vincent wants to come back. I think we should say “Thanks but no thanks.” He was a reasonable player for us and the winning goal in the cup final was brilliant but I think it’d be better if he stayed in the past.
  2. Chalmers is a very 6/10 player. His corners are good and his free kicks are reasonable, but really as a player he has two moves - stop the ball and then pass it left. Now it's alright having a player in the midfield who can keep things simple but I find it hard to believe that County couldn't find anyone better. He'll be a squad player and nothing more though he is pretty versatile having playing across the midfield, at centre back and at left back in his time with us. Whatever you do though, don't play him in the latter - absolutely horrendous in there!
  3. Who replaces Cove?

    Halkirk United talked about a long term goal of HL membership when they opened their new ground a few years ago but as far as I'm aware haven't mentioned it since. Say they did join though, what kind of standard would they be? You'd imagine most of the good local players get hoovered up by Wick Academy and maybe to a lesser extend Brora. They'd be working off scraps and probably be somewhere around Fort William's level.
  4. Travel Vlogs

    I've been starting to watch more travel videos on YouTube lately and I've thought it'd good to have a thread on it. I quite enjoyed this one from Belarus -
  5. General Politics Thread

    The Liberal Party means more fiscally liberal, not socially liberal, so they're the equivalent of the Conservatives. The Australian Labor Party are basically like New Labour. I don't think he's there anymore but there used to be the brilliant named Senator Xenophon. He was very anti-gambling.

    I thought he was singing "There goes my baby boo".
  7. Kelty Hearts lowland league quest

    I see you've signed Nathan Austin. Good luck.

    Nathan Austin has just been unveiled by Kelty Hearts.

    McHattie is someone you could take or leave. Alright in a few positions but not exactly outstanding in any of them - essentially the new Lewis Horner or David Proctor. I'm not sure I'd offer if a contract if I'm honest.
  10. Caley v United/United v Caley

    Dundee United have been a bigger *club* than Dundee since the 60s/70s. There have been times since then though that Dundee have had a better *team*.
  11. ICTFC 18/19

    One thing that was abundantly clear last night, as it was a few weeks ago when we beat Ayr 1-0 is that we can't play a system with two central midfielders. We get cut open far too easily. In years gone by we managed it when we had the likes of Draper and Tansey and Black and Duncan, but we don't have players robust enough for it anymore.

    Jim Spence wasn't a happy bunny when taken to ask over tweeting something similar.
  13. Caley v United/United v Caley

    By the same token, Caley Thistle have finished third and they certainly do not have the third (or higher) biggest budget. That makes a third place finish a decent result.

    Heard yesterday that Aberdeen and Hearts are keen on Doran.
  15. Caley v United/United v Caley

    I think a 4-0 aggregate score is a wee bit harsh, but the reason we're out is because we didn't take our chances. Putting aside the penalty (which wasn't a penalty) and the red card (which probably was), we were the better team in the first half of both legs, had two or three great chances in each and didn't take them. That's the real reason we're out. The other thing is which many fans have alluded to is that we have a good starting XI but a couple of injuries and we're massively depleted. Would we have gone through last night had we had Tremarco, Polworth and Welsh? Maybe not but we'd have had a far better chance. On the whole though we've had a good season. We have the the sixth biggest budget in the league and to finish third is a good achievement. I just hope we can keep the core of the squad together, if we do that we could have a good chance next season. If we lose a load of players, we could have a hard time.
