I Telt You So

Terry-Butcher.JPGAnd so, as predicted, Inverness Caledonian Thistle have won the First Division championship and will return to what we like to call "top flight SPL football" next season.
The official confirmation came last night as Dundee went down one-nil to Raith Rovers. I, like so many Inverness fans, was listening to Richard Gordon's commentary on Sporstsound and got a real sense of those Raith players dying on their feet as the struggled through the last ten minutes of the game and then had to endure a decade or so of injury time.

Naturally I've been telling people that I never doubted Terry Butcher's ability to create a league-winning side and have been directing sceptics to the blog entries I wrote at the start of the season, including the pre-season friendly with Clach.

Only our Sport editor Tom Connor knows the truth. He recalls me calling him a few months ago with rumouirs that Butcher was for the axe...and that I was mumping about the possibility of ICT dropping into the second division.

But if anyone asks, I never made that call.
