Always puzzles me, the stick Yogi gets as ICT manager. :chin:

Wee club, small city, poorly supported.....and yet, in one year he can put on his CV....

  • 3rd place finish in SPL
  • Scottish Cup in the (albeit wee) trophy cabinet
  • Europa League qualifiers
  • Half a million £ for a young player, and he gets to use him for the rest of the season.

When did we last have a manager who achieved that much (even over his entire career at Dens)?

....his name's on one of our stands.

He done all that with Butcher's team. They list a few over the summer and his replacements aren't near as good. Brutal style of football from Inverness at Dens.

There are two important points re "Butcher's team"....

  • Butcher left in early November 2013. It was a season & a half later & a big change in squad in summer 2014, when Hughes won the Scottish Cup & secured 3rd place.
  • Butcher failed to achieve 3rd, Europe & the cup with his own team.

Let's agree to disagree seeing as Butcher signed

Doran

I think that's pretty much your cup winning side there. That's just the players I vaguely know of from Inverness.

And left in a very healthy position both squad wise and league position

I have to say, I was surprised by Yogi's success, but fair play to him, while he inherited the squad, there was a long enough time frame for him to claim last season as his own, arguably Butcher didn't get these players to win the cup (not a fair comparison in a cup run I admit).but if Yogi was that awful it would have all fallen apart, he must have done something right.
