  1. John will be out for a while, clumsy tackle which the ref missed, Keith grabbed a goal as the defence was reorganising. Teams cancelled each other out for large parts of the game. fort does need a finisher though, obviously Keith would not agree but it feels like an opportunity lost to me.
  2. Kinda meant last season but I should have worded it better, point is most HL teams have had their troubles Rothes, Nairn County, even Brora have had to start from scratch previously. With the HL being seen these days as a springboard to div2 football, money talks and it is getting harder to compete, There are rumours that North caley teams are paying higher wages than us these days. As a club we want to compete, on this thread and the last one, we are criticised for being uncompetitive and now for trying to be more competitive. These Caley boys are just that 18 yr olds, they are not going to do anything other than hopefully steady the ship, long enough to bring our own youth players on.
  3. We started last season lucky to field eleven players, mostly from the Inverness welfare. With the exception of a few, most local players had left the Fort for other HL clubs, shinty or ametuer football. This season without the Inverness boys we would have some gifted youngsters and the same few. The results might improve but not much, the caley boys gives us breathing space to bring the youngsters on, hopefully without exposing them to huge defeats. We haven’t let anyone go who didn’t want to leave, and We are now no longer forced to play players who are not ready physically or mentally. The media attention and the loan deals are things Fort must do to survive and thrive. You gentlemen are entitled to you’re opinion but at the end of the day that is all it is.
  4. It’s fair to say that strathspey and ourselves were in the same part of the league although they were not shipping double figures ever. A new management team took over, they have some excellent players mostly from the Inverness area. They will go from strength to strength this season.
  5. Josh is a student in His final year in Edinburgh and will play when he’s able. His commitment to the club last season was remarkable but no-one wants it to affect his studies. He is already a Fort legend and will always get a game when he’s up.
  6. That’s sad to hear, there has been a lot of positive remarks about the new training regime. Time will tell I suppose.
  7. Missed a lot of chances, and couldn’t get past a solid strathspey defence, seem to be cutting out some of the errors in defence. Still looking to gel as a team but delighted to be competing in the HL at last.
  8. Honestly I’ve no idea where or why you would do such a thing. Have you memorised these statistics for all the HL teams or just the Fort? How much are the Lossie players paid?
  9. Still haven’t backed up your £20 per player is average pay for the HL statement. But to reel off that huge page of statistics from you’re head without cutting and pasting is very impressive, well done.
  10. Jeez I hope you cut and pasted this, if not your obsession is becoming unhealthy, any word on the pay scales of other HL teams.
  11. Tbh I think he might have learnt a tough lesson on Wednesday, for the team to have got their first win without him on the pitch. Might make him screw the nut, have to say though, not many players would pull of that panenka penalty in the dying minutes of the season we had last year.
  12. Ok I’ve read this several times now and I’ve no idea what you’re on about.
  13. Scotty Hunter the Panenka King, He was subbed because he had been booked early on and was getting the refs attention. Sending offs change games so better safe than sorry, tbh I’m delighted that the manager will do that previously we would have watched it like a car crash. Scotty is a huge part of this club and will be an influential player for us this season.
