Was over 9k I think. Was a decent effort.

That's an outstanding effort for anyone outside the OF bigots, especially with it being at Hampden and not (ideally) at Easter Road or Tynecastle.

Some amount of Pars fans at that first game. We were lucky but the replay we destroyed ICT and wasn't as close as the scoreline would suggest. 

Not quite as I recall.

I can't believe anyone thought Aberdeen was a great choice for the replay ffs.

A lot of people seem to think that Aberdeen is pretty close to Inverness. 

Perth would have been the best choice for the replay. Easy to get to for both sets of fans and would have looked better given it's smaller capacity.

I remember someone on the Terrace Podcast saying once that Inverness to Aberdeen must be a 100 mile round trip. It’s more than double that on the A96.

We’ve had quite a few meaningful games against ICT. 

semi final

they relegated us

playoff extra time game

I also remember a game we were cruising at EEP and they got the softest penalty ever. Quite a few ICT players were laughing.

Only a couple of months after that semi, the tables were turned as we got our first ever SPL win, 2-0 at Pittodrie. 

The following January the first ever SPL game in the Highlands was a convincing 2-0 win to ICT. 

Also I’m sure you pretty much clinched promotion at ours around 2000.

The the middle game there I was at (as was @Stellaboz). It was a pathetic display and one of the most memorably shit. I get annoyed just thinking about it!

Last one was a 1-2 win that did indeed secure us promotion in 2000. I was at the 1-1 draw in Inverness earlier in the season. Really liked the ground then. The crappy stands behind the goals are rubbish.

I was at both of those, back in the days when I had a season ticket. The 1-1 game is the only time I’ve persuaded Mrs Mantis along to a home game :lol:

Watch the game again then. It was 3-1 until the late penalty from Bingham and even that flattered Caley a bit.

Caley probably should have won the first game though; we were very poor and Caley were good.

I think it was pretty even until the equaliser, then we started to become the better team. After half time we blew them away, although Stillie made an incredible save not too long in to the second half (can't mind if it was just before or just after Brewster's goal) 

Brewster though :wub:

One of the worst displays ever. Bunch of utter shitebags on the park. I rather foolishly broke a seat that day and took it home,for it to live under my bed for about 4 years before going in the bin.

Just look forward to next season. We'll have four games for imminent reprisals. I don't think ICT will gain promotion.

I remember that night. A normally quite quiet gentleman who sat in front of us in the Norrie had a complete meltdown over Jamie McCunnie's lack of ability to slide tackle.

Sure I've posted this before but that pass by Bingo is one of the finest passes I've ever seen from an ICT player. Just perfection. What a waste of his talent to head off to slum it in Division 3 with Gretna at the end of the season.
