"The ICT Thread - The Championship Years"


Recommended Posts

Just now, Ott said:

I think it’s brilliant the rugby is coming to the city. It shows the vision the club have in their ability to get the most out of the stadium. It also shows they genuinely believe in Growing Inverness as a sporting capitol for the Highlands and Islands. Saw in the Courier that young Scotland player Jamie Dobie from Inverness used to watch the ICT games - he also played in the Highland youth team with Roddy MacGregor. Our young players should play as many sports as possible when kids - develop all sorts of skills (and dare I say it, better attitudes). 
Barcelona seem to do well having a basketball team running with the football and that fits in with their mantra of ‘more than a club’. You should have a read of The Barcelona Way by Dr Damien Hughes - although it seems a different world- there’s so much we could learn from. They use the Catalonian card to build a team spirit…..we could harness the Highlander spirit to build a strong identity. Let’s face it, the way the Highlanders have been treated over the last 275 years would make anyone angry!

I believe PGA Tour player Russell Knox used to play ice hockey here.

If we take Walsh and Sutherland's injuries into the picture just now and provided no-one leaves, we could start a match tomorrow with - 

Ridgers

Carson Duffy Devine Deas

MacGregor Welsh Allardice

Doran Mckay Samuels

Bench - MacKay, Harper, Hyde, Nicolson 

For my liking we're short of a right back, a left back (still!), another striker, another central midfielder and another winger.  The base of our squad is very much there, but we need four new signings at least IMO.

Such a shame that Belladrum will clash with the first league game of the season and to have such an invidious cultural choice will weigh heavily upon troubadours and trobairitz alike

Tumilty and the catastrophically bald Paul McGowan offered deals apparently.

Surprised we'd let McGowan go considering he still has another year on his deal but I'd read that Dunfermline (McPake link) had offered him a deal as well on here. McGowan still has a lot to offer at this level but doesn't have it in him to be the quality required in a 2 man centre anymore.

Tumilty would be a cracking signing for anyone at this level.

Let’s hope we haven’t offered him a deal then.

If we do manage to get Tumilty, I’d very very happily surprised if we did, then that would hopefully mean Carson going back into centre midfield which would mean we don’t need to bring in a new signing.

Tumilty would be a decent signing and nothing more.Fairly good going forward but defensively pretty average

We have played a centre mid at right back for the last two seasons so it will be good to have a player who is natural in that position, no matter how good Carson has been there.

Tumilty always seems like a red card waiting to happen. Not ideal.

He got sent off for two yellows in a cup game against Falkirk last season but struggling to think of any more for us over two seasons.

It would be a bit annoying to see him land up back elsewhere in the Championship but no doubt he'd be a good signing for anyone.

Belladrum is shite. If you’re there instead of the football then you’re a virgin.

So you're not a fan?

Tumilty I'd take in a heartbeat, but with our money we'd probably end up with the Mathew one.

Expected reaction from a Rovers fan and can't blame you but in the games against us he was a standout.

I may or may not have overheard a conversation tonight saying we are announcing two signings tomorrow, both of whom completed medical today. Believe he said a right back (Tumilty?), and a winger.

We also have a centre back coming in on trial who has just left West Brom.

This said individual said he reckoned we needed another 4 players on top of that to push for the league title.

If the West Brom one is true, the defenders they've just released are Kevin Joshua, Zak Delaney, Mark Chidi, Leon MacHisa and Daniel N'Goma.

I'd be surprised if Tumilty moves to Caley given it's effectively a sideways move when everyone thought he'd go up. It might be he's turned us down then no offers from the top flight ever materialised. He'll do a good job if you do sign for him. He's excellent at getting forwards and should be popular with the fans. We'll be a weaker team without him.

Of those, the only one with some vague link is Kevin Joshua, who spent time on loan at Waterford where we signed Scott Allardice from.

Apparently our chances of signing this trialist are “50/50”.
