I’ve always hated the whole Caley home, Thistle away kit idea but surely whatever it is it’ll be better than last season’s ghastly white top with the mouthwash-coloured shorts.

Agree with that, the Caley home, Thistle away thing is drivel and thankfully never been a thing.
Using the red and blue stripes is ICT's identity.

I like that we have variety in the away shirt over the years.  It means that we have had some absolute stinkers over the years though, that orange one and the fairly recent white one with the black and white chequered pattern at the bottom being amongst the worst IMO.  That's the thing with football shirts though, what one person really likes another absolutely hates.

BTW, I don't mind last seasons white shirt, it's far from the worst we've ever had.

Love it. Might be nice to have seen black and / or red socks but it's still a belter. Will absolutely be picking one up!

That is good, though I now can't stop saying "AC Milan" in a "bonk machine" accent. 

ASee Meelan!

I'm sure Rig will confirm this as he posts about this pod a lot (good work by the way) but I see The Wyness Shuffle podcast tweeted earlier that editing of the latest pod is under way so the pod can be uploaded, then I saw a little bit saying that our CEO (who gets unfair criticism imho, yes I know that's rich coming from me ahaha) that he's hoping we have a new signing announced before the weekend :O.

 

My guess is it'll now be at the weekend as nothing on socials etc yet.

Looking for some friendly Highland hospitality advice here folks.  It's my old man's 70th the weekend of the ICT - Ayr game on 19th November.  Looking to make a weekend of it but also bring my Mrs and son.   Any suggestions for accommodation?  Assuming a 2 room apartment type thing is a bit ambitious but even a decent hotel we could get 2 rooms that maybe has a bar and that my wife and son would feel comfortable in if me and the old boy stayed out after game.  Can think of plenty examples in Ayr (Chestnuts, Abbotsford etc if anyone has been down our way and done similar ) but obviously no idea about up your way.  Any suggestions appreciated 👍

Closest places to the likes of the Chestnuts, the Abbotsford or the Fairfield Park that I can think of in Inverness are the Craigmonie or the Redcliffe. I've not lived in Inverness for a long time though, so I'm no expert, but probably worth having a look.

Premier inn on Huntly Street.  onsite parking , everything on your doorstep food and drink wise. Has it's own restaurant and bar and you're a three minute walk away from the Caley Club just around the corner on Greig Street who run a bus to and from the game. I think it costs about £4 return? Cheap pints before and after the game.  Loads of bars and restaurants all within a 5 minute walk.

As @Caley Shaun says some of TWS chaps had a chinwag with Scot Gardiner in the latest podcast which you can get from all good podcasty places (Spotify, Google, Apple etc). Links in the Tweet below. Cheers!

The 4 star Kingsmills Hotel is offering Autumn breaks for 2 nights from £67 per guest per night, included is Dinner on one night and buffet breakfast both mornings, plus you get access to the full leisure spa facilities and pool,  free parking is inc, the hotel is a good walk from the town centre so taxis could be an extra cost on match day if you like a refreshment.

Got extended family coming up in September and booked an AirBnb for the overflow, £250 per night for a 4 bedroom house with a hot tub, near us and about 15 minutes walk from the centre. Sounds a lot but if you add up the hotel rooms we'd need it's not too bad. The Premier Inn idea above is good, perfect location as described and very near 2 very good restaurants, Rocpool and the Kitchen. and there's the Mustard Seed just across the river. Book ahead, especially for Rocpool which can be fully booked weeks ahead.
