I am delighted that we have signed him. I had just read that he was away from Inverness when my phone rang, it was my son telling me that he had been signed. Brilliant, welcome to the club Nikolay.

Selling McManus for 60k and bringing in Nikolay on a free is a good bit of business

That’s an upgrade on our former striker for me.

Right out of the blue too!

All signings are a risk but on paper at least this looks like a very shrewd move. Looks like he's averaging 1 in 3/4 and is different from what we have already so hopefully he'll do well and can up his strike rate if he gets a run of games. Welcome to the club.

Decent goal record with ICT in the last 2 years so looks like a very decent signing.

part of McNamara`s group it looks like, certainly a different option to O`Hara and Wighton although who fits best with who will be interesting to see. I know Grant talked up McCann in his first interview, i still think loaning him out is the best option and more so with Todorov coming in.

Seen him last week getting shown around his new pad near myself as mentioned on another thread. But me being useless at knowing who platers are unless they've played for us or moved to us 😆

He has an interesting c.v. He first came to the UK on a scholarship in 2011 and, after playing college football, signed for Nottingham Forest. He went on loan to non-league clubs but was released in 2016 and joined Hearts. He had loan spells at Cowden, Livi and QOS but in 2018 joined Italian Serie C side, Rieti. In January 2019 he signed for Falkirk but left at the end of the season to join ICT. He`s been capped for Bulgaria under 21s and married a Scottish girl in Jan 2019.

Struggling to think of one since Andy Barrowman possibly? Gozie Ugwu was a fair lump too but not many spring to mind recently. A good option to have especially in this league through the winter months when sometimes the playing conditions dictate that you need to go longer. I thought we struggled as soon as poorer conditions arrived last season and we were too easy to defend against.

I`ve got a friend that`s an ICT fan. Not happy about them letting him go at all, which seems to be a good sign.

Apparently offered a contract extension but turned it down to move to the central belt. General consensus on the ICT board is that he'll be a loss although it was just a few opinions. Hopefully good news for us.

It`s interesting that this signing came completely out of the blue. I don`t recall any mention of it in the media or even by the `insiders` on here who usually tip us off about imminent signings. On the other hand the much-touted signing of Isaac Rice has still not happened.

Someone on the pars forum in pie and bovril posted a few hours before it happened that he expected 2 signings to be announced yesterday - Todorov being 1 of them.

Supposedly going off P&B Todorov was all set for Ayr and was even at there ground for talks. We seem to have moved fast after letting McManis going.

A massive factor appears to be the fact he wants to move back near to Edinburgh so win for us. Hopefully the start of a few more new faces

It’s a bit of a sideways signing in terms of quality and I’m actually not convinced he’s better than the man he’s replacing. I hope I’m wrong but don’t see this as a player that’s going to get us out of this league. Remember what happened a few years ago when we signed loads of journeymen like Hippolyte and Durnan?

I always remembered him playing centre back for some reason and then latterly being a bit of a handful playing up front for Livingston when they played that ultra direct (but very effective) style under Hopkin a few years ago.

Gives us something different going forward, hopefully type of player we have been missing.

In terms of levels of performance for us only time will tell but he's got a different skill set from anyone we had previously. McManus is much closer in style to Wighton and O'Hara than Toddy is so hopefully the option will allow us to vary the play a bit and if we are going long ball when we're under pressure hopefully Toddy is better equipped to compete than McManus (and our other strikers to be fair) was.

Is it just my imagination, or did he suffer a few injuries last season? Seem to remember he scored a cracker against us at Inverness then went off injured and was out for a while. Might be wrong though.

Wasn`t it Miles Storey who scored against us at Inverness?

According to wikipedia Todorov scored 11 goals in 32 appearances last season.

No, Wee Eck. Just checked the archive on COWS and (for once) my memory didn’t let me down. Storey wasn’t available that game. Todorov scored then was substituted injured in the 19th minute. But his CV - also on COWS - says he played most of ICT’s games last season so looks like I am wittering about him being regularly injured. Anyway, based on what I saw of him he impressed me so potentially a good signing.

It was first game of the season but it was at East End and not at Inverness.He did come off injured but scored for them the next week so obviously wasn`t a serious one. He started 22 games for them and came off the bench 26 times. The good news is he scored half his goals for them in the last month of the season so obviously in good form.

We only played ICT once at Inverness last season and it was a midweek game on Tuesday 29 December. Kyle Turner put us ahead in the first half and Miles Storey equalised with a looping shot from well outside the box in the second half. According to the match report on COWS Todorov replaced Storey after 85 minutes.

As parathletic says Todorov opened the scoring at EEP in the first league game of the season.
