    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Spittal has been nowhere remotely near as bad as Storey. He's also mainly been played centrally so hardly likely to be beating a man that often. And just for the record I think Spittal has been mainly disappointing so far this season.

    I deserve a start ahead of Storey!

    Spittal has been better than Storey , he can deliver balls into the box. Why not take an easy options it doesn't have to be the hard option all the time.

    Uuhmmmm. Holy Mother DD. The board didn't have a clue during last season, had less of a clue immediately after the play-offs v Livingston, and have had no clue whatsoever since August. It's been obvious to all except the board.

    This is the easy option, conservative, negative thinking that has placed us 2nd bottom of the diddy league. Even the fans think like this now. Spittal’s been almost as bad as Storey. He has hardly beaten a man either. Either Fitzpatrick starts or the must change formation and start With Erskine.

    But it’s only 12 points and -19 GD from 4th. I think they are right to still have that as a target in November. I’m far from convinced that we will do it, but I would be very disappointed in the board if they didn’t have that as a target

    You’re absolutely right, from being in a position of strength after reaching the top six , it’s unbelievable we’ve ended up where we are just now especially with the financial rewards that we had , the old pals act of Archibald, Paterson , Beattie and Maxwell should have been broken up long before it did , as results and performances were there for all to see. We can’t sleepwalk towards another relegation, by my reckoning Caldwell has got the December fixtures to get some wins on the board , if not I wouldn’t trust him with funds for the January window . It would be financial meltdown if we got relegated 2 years in a row , we can’t let that happen.

    That was a great goal.Thought/hoped it would give him confidence. How did Hughes get him to score double figures for ICT in a season?
  11. Auld Jag

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Storey,Sammon and Edwards ran the Motherwell defence ragged in the first 40 minutes of that game. Didn't do it anywhere enough last season and so far we haven't done it this season.

    If the board are saying that 'Promotion is still the target', when we're 20 points (and minus 26 in GD) adrift of the top then they are still living in the fantasy world that caused them to sleepwalk into this disaster in the first place; they're also, no changes here, grossly insulting the intelligence of the people who keep them in their job.

    I would move spittal out there as he can deliver a ball, not got the pace of storey but more liable to get the balls into the box. Fitzpatrick is the back up option or the one to bring on.

    I agree, Fitzpatrick deserves a start ahead of Storey

    I've defended storey recently but it's clear he just isn't going to improve. Give Fitzpatrick all the games in December, especially at home. Either that or move spittal wide right and start erskine. Our options are limited....

    Jack Storer's screamer v Morton. That's if you view getting subbed for Storer as an assist.

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    I do remember one when we raced to a 3 goal lead against Motherwell last season. But yeah that's about it.

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Storey has managed 3 Goals in about 50 appearances. I mentioned this is a recent Match Thread but can anyone remember any goal where he has had an assist? I genuinely can't think of a single one.

    "Could some sort of hypnosis using film of that goal v St Johnstone be employed to re-educate his deep memory system and somehow embed the ability to reproduce this on a regular basis? JagZone highlights could be put to good use!" Excellent idea! Remember the film the Manchurian Candidate? The sleeper agent Shaw (not our Geordie) was brainwahsed by the Commies to respond to the sight of the Queen of Diamonds playing card. Storey could be brainwashed to be activated by the sight of spectators with large cards showing an arrow pointing to the oppo's goal. It might even encourage les autres.

    Bill Mullen

    Perhaps not the best choice of ref - he was kicked off the list for accepting bribes on European trips if I remember correctly. Mr JRP Gordon of Newport Upon Tay! If you listen to Robert Reid's banter at hospitality one of my favourite lines he comes away with is that of ref Jim Renton who, according to Robert, thoroughly deserves to live in Cowdenbeath. That always makes me laugh!

    Bill Mullen

    Echo what Auld Jag said. I rarely miss a match these days but that's mainly due to the family issues that once kept me away making it easier for me to attend now. Anyway sad to hear of Mr Mullen's passing. Fair to say back then referees used their own initiative more than today most often applying commonsense. If the ground was hard they'd come down stricter on bad tackles. If the ground was muddy they'd allow for mistimed tackling. If a goal bound ball struck a defender's arm it was a penalty, regardless of whether the arm was in a natural position. Wasn't all rosy as the ugly sisters still got preferential treatment tho' I don't recall Bill Mullen ever being swayed that way. A bit anal but maybe someone knows when the referee's home town disappeared from press reports? None appeared to come from Glasgow but strangely places then technically outside the city, Rutherglen and Giffnock spring to mind. There was one ref, Gordon of Newport on Tay, who presumably was allowed to officiate at games in Dundee. He was a press/media favourite and any criticism of his refereeing was a very rare occurrence. Not because he was particularly any good. He was a director of Dundee confectionery business and handed out copious amounts of sweeties to the hacks after each game. eta as this is the only nostalgia thread around I add this unconnected article https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/scotland/scottish-football-s-10-greatest-rebels-1-4831513

    Don’t think Storey has enough about him to play as a winger , think if we’re going to use him it would be as an impact sub against a tiring defence but definitely through the middle rather than out wide . If we’re under pressure he would be ok as an out ball because of his pace .

    Falkirk vs. Thistle

    Early in his Thistle career Miles Storey scored a tremendous solo goal against St Johnstone (who generally have a reputation for being mean and effective defenders). He outpaced the wide defenders and ran into the penalty box, at the angle, homing in on the goal and produced a perfectly directed finish, keeping his shot low and hard. He has never come remotely near doing the same again in the past year. Admittedly he can beat one or two defenders, sometimes using some neat tricks to accomplish this, but then either he goes wide and is crowded out or is forced to pass the ball back or attempts an ineffectual cross, hitting the first defender or curling out of play, or he crabs across the pitch, resulting in a shot from distance, almost invariably high and wide or at best a pass to a holding midfielder or opposite wing player generally in a static position. He hardly ever attacks the box. Even if he cannot shoot and score, he might at least win a penalty. Could some sort of hypnosis using film of that goal v St Johnstone be employed to re-educate his deep memory system and somehow embed the ability to reproduce this on a regular basis? JagZone highlights could be put to good use!

    December Hospitality

    3 big games at Firhill in December so you might want to take one (or more) in whilst enjoying hospitality: https://ptfc.co.uk/product-category/hospitality/

    Caldwell

    No game this Saturday. 5 games in December,3 at home. We should win at least 2. If not I don't know how many will trust Caldwell to sign the right players to improve us.
