  1. ICTFC 18/19

    Rumours that Graeme Rae is paying some of the players' wages out of his own pocket and will resign when he's paid back from the Scottish Cup semi-final money.
  2. You'd honestly think some of our fans had never gotten up early and had never left Inverness.
  3. Calling Cards of Morons

    Again though, that goes back to one of my earlier posts on this thread. Butcher probably did love living up here and his time at the club yet he really did use that for browny points with the fans and the media. Of course, when the Hibs job came up he was down the A9 faster than you can spell I-C-T. It years since I read his book but he did say something like that and gave Rangers a proper pasting afterwards. Some Rangers fans didn't take too kindly to what he wrote as I recall.
  4. Was it as much as that? I thought it was £20 at the most.
  5. Calling Cards of Morons

    By much the same token, there seem to be people who think that players who have played for a club - usually a massive club - are fans of that club forevermore. A good example is Terry Butcher with Rangers. First of all, he last played for Rangers nearly 30 years ago (and gave them a right panning in his autobiography), isn't Glaswegian let alone Scottish and is in-fact extremely English and is a well known lifelong fan of Ipswich Town. Speak to some people though and they're convinced he's a massive Rangers man.
  6. Fort William tomorrow

    I saw Lossiemouth play Clach once a few years back and there was one fan who spent the entire game (literally the entire game!) shouting 'MON LOSSIIIEEEEE!'. Some man.
  7. Do any ICT fans remember how much tickets were for our semi-final in 2015 against Celtic? I see the price for the Hearts game is £30 for an adult. I'm sure the price for 2015 was far cheaper than that. It was more like half that as I recall.

    I think Greg Tansey has said how much he likes his new club's stadium three times - Caley Thistle, Aberdeen and St Mirren.
  9. Calling Cards of Morons

    Football fans who think that a player who plays for their team is as big a fan of the club as they are. This is particularly prevalent when a player leaves and some just can't believe it. Same goes for folk who believe everything a player or manager says. A player saying how much he's enjoying playing for a club is like when a restaurant tells you it only uses the finest ingredients.
  10. Annoying things people write on Facebook

    US Soccer Guy is soooooo 2010.
  11. This is twice in a month the Supporter's Trust have appeared in the press complaining about KO times. I'm not quite sure what they want to achieve - these games aren't going to be played any other time and if they were moved, they'd still complain.
  12. Caley+Thistle v Victoria+Thistle

    Apparently the printing company pulled out before the start of the season. You can buy a print out (yes, a literal A4 print out) of the programme for £2 (!!!) in the club shop though.
  13. ICTFC 18/19

    I did a bit of research earlier. There are three trains from Inverness to Glasgow on the Saturday that would get you there in good time and a Megabus. On top of that there'll be numerous supporters buses running, so the transport argument can't be made. It's just argument for argument's sake. You'd honestly think some fans had never left the Highlands the way some of them go on. I remember when we got to the League Cup final, we ran two charter trains for it and one of the ladies involved told me some of the emails she received beggared belief. People asking how to get from Queen Street High Level to Low Level and how to get to the stadium from the station...a stadium you can see basically as soon as you exit the station. Perhaps they never had left the Highlands...
  14. ICTFC 18/19

    I see Caley Thistle Together Forever are kicking up a fuss about KO times again. This time about the semi-final kick off. Lunchtime in Glasgow isn't ideal but it's hardly the end of the world and if it was after 5, they'd be complaining about little Rupert and Patricia getting home after bed time. If was Sunday they'd be complaining about it being on the Sabbath. If it was a 3pm, they'd be complaining that it wasn't on TV. This is getting tedious and they certainly don't speak for me.
  15. Calling Cards of Morons

    People who email the SFA (or other football authorities) over 'referee bias'. It's like when people call the police over someone stealing their snowman and that type of nonsense.
