I'll miss the Clach game due to a glesca function but Brora Saturday is on for me, lunch at the Mirage Helmsdale and Brora GC does a decent dinner on Fri and Sat nights.

That's lunch sorted for driving back from Wick v Clach after a Wednesday night game in August. :)

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. 

The Craigmonie is alright but feels a bit 80s inside.  I had my dinner at the Redcliff a few weeks ago.  It was alright and by alright I mean not terrible...but also not great and Talk TV was on in the bar.  If the owners actually spent some money on it it could be really nice but it was a bit old fashioned and drab.

Haven't been in the Craigmonie for donkeys, but I had a meal at the Redcliffe with my folks last year and it was decent enough. Those were the two I thought of specifically because they reminded me of the Chestnuts in Ayr, which the poster referenced - it's my mother-in-law's lunch venue of choice whdn we go to visit her, and it's a similar sort of vibe, much more traditional than Premier Inn-type places.

Hope the lads don't take Duran Duran lightly next week, would be good to kick of the season with a big win

It’s difficult to see anything other than a win coming against Bocelli.

Carson needs to set the tone with a crunching challenge in the first minute

He'll never see that coming.

A terrible sexist story doing the rounds of Bocelli walking through a fish market and shouting, 'Good Evening Ladies'.

Wonder who the English manager was we nearly appointed last season.

I was left wondering who the player on trial is / was. Irish, name ends in a "Y". Could it be...

I was intrigued by this too, to the extent that I had a wee dig. Most likely candidate is Mark Cooper. Five years at Forest Green, during which time he took them out of the National League into League Two, so a decent pedigree, appointed to the Barrow job on 28th May, which pretty much fits in with the 'three days before' comment Gardiner made (Dodds was appointed on 1st June), and has subsequently lost that job.
