Don't expect Inverness to sit in as Morton, QOTS and Ayr did. Therefore confident prediction of 4-1 to us.

2-0 ICT

By the time the bus arrives GMS to be car sick, Nando hypothermic and Naysmith finish his 80s playlist.

Although we didn't play anywhere near the level we're capable of at the weekend, we still should have won the game comfortably. We're now seriously due a win. Not sure if nando gets the start. Think GMS has been so poor and in need of being dropped. McEneff looked really promising and should definitely keep his place. I wouldn't be against 3-5-2 which has been spoken about by a few in the media this week, so here goes:

 

      Boyce Kastaneer

Walker

Halliday McEneff

Kingsley                             Smith

Halkett Haring Popescu

Gordon

4/4 in March will see us all but promoted imo. 

 

 

 

It is a difficult one to call with our current form.

 

I did a quick calculation of the main challengers and in the unlikely event that Dunfermline and Raith both won every game left then the maximum number of points they could get is 60.

 

Dundee's maximum if they won all their games would be 59 points.

 

The surprise though because they have had so many games cancelled is ICT as they could get 69 points.

 

It is highly unlikely that any team including us will win every game left but we have 10 games left which if we were to win them all would give us a points total of 68.

 

But we all know that this league is full of surprises and you never know who is going to spring a defeat on who.

 

We really need to be winning against ICT and Dundee to give ourselves the best chance to wrap the league up asap.

57 Inverness maximum. Played 14 on 18 points + 39 points is 57.

Sorry I just realised my mistake although I was looking at the table on the HMFC website which shows they have played 13 games.

 

With 14 to go they would have been able to get a max of 59 rather than my 69.

 

I take it they played this week and drew?

Naisy got good taste in music anyway. Bit of Human League, Depeche Mode, Bronki Beat.

Can't see anything other than a hard game on Friday.  Yet another team sitting in and hitting us on break.  The key to these games is getting first goal.  Maybe not a bad thing that our expectations aren't too high after recent performances.   1-1, which ultimately wouldn't be a disaster.

Hope so. Would be nice to get a convincing away performance under our belt. Surely if we create the amount of chances we did in the first half on Saturday we will be more clinical and walk it.

So long as the chances don't fall to Popescu we might convert a few.

That was my immediate thought too although Petric's was way more difficult. Wasn't that easy a chance from memory but it was a late kick off that night 🍻🍺

Any more dropped points and we ain't running away with this league so Robbie must do something to get us back to the Raith Rovers away performance. Any win will do for me but I'm not holding my breath.

I feel your pain - I had a fiver on him at 40's. I'm not a big gambler either so it was a sore one for me when he skied it!

ICT will not sit back they  need to start winning there home games to give themselves a chance of the playoffs,

that should open the game up so that should suit us,

They  have just come off from a tough game last night so they may tire in the second half.


but then again 🤷‍♂️

With our pedestrian slow passing from side to back.

 

You are excatly correct they have played two games on Saturday then Tuesday and had a long lay-off prior to that with the bad weather. They will hardly be fully match fit so we should be stretching them as much as possibel and tiring them out.

 

We can always live in hope.

I am a bundle of nerves when I see teams attacking our central defenders,far stiffer test for them next three games

Don’t worry. They have to get through our midfield first.

The tactics need to change but more importantly we must take our chances when they arrive.

The RR performance only came about because they basically gave up after the red card and played it out as a defensive shape training drill. We knocked the ball about well, but let's not kid on that RR were even attempting to make a game of it :( 

 

Agree re any more dropped points. Slides are hard to stop. A solid win here, by two clear goals, and the confidence comes back.

1-0, I think? I've tried to erase each match this season from memory at the full time whistle, so could be wrong :)

Not as nuts as it sounds. Henderson pins back the full back then they have to deal with our full back bombing forward. Worked last season in some games. Probably not with three at the back.

Not sure about White he was injured and left out of the squad on Saturday and hasn't played much.

 

Having said that I think I would prefer him to Frear and even GMS.

Yes, but they knew they were going a man down so gave up after the first. :whistling:

sadly, as per my prediction v morton, another turgid 1-0 win or 1-1 draw.

 

I base this sadly on recent performances and not the calibre of players on both sides.

 

at the moment, it feels like Robbie is building a team of stars. Time to build a star team instead.

Yes haven’t you noticed? It’s one up front and pass the ball slowly across the park amongst the defence.
