    "Strong and thriving" is the quote???? Some people are deluded beyond belief. I had hoped the true Thistle legend Alan Rough would escape this shambles with his reputation intact, shame he is part of the statement/threat, perhaps he had more power/input than I realised.

    New Rules

    This is a very interesting point Semi. I played some games many many years ago where the throw ins were replaced by kick ins. It was just a summer league, nothing if note and I have no idea who or whose idea it was, what body was responsible for experimenting. The main rule was that the team taking the throw/kick in had only a short set period in which to take it thus avoiding them being used like a free kick. It was something like 5 or 10 seconds once the ball was retrieved. The main idea was to keep the game flowing which as I remember, it did. Because of the short time you had to take the kick the focus was on keeping possession and short kicks were the norm. If you were right up the pitch attacking and the opposition were chasing to get back there would be benefit of hoofing it into the area but cos you only had 5 to 10 seconds accuracy was in short supply. Great fun though

    Didn't the late great Cliff Hanley say you couldn't be a Partick Thistle supporter, and a tee-totaller, AND believe in God!!!

    New Rules

    My own immediate thoughts too, I didn't think 'wall' was official terminology - indeed, how do you interpret/enforce this rule? One of my long term moans has been about throw ins. This is football, not handball, not gaelic football, not rugby etc etc. I think the ball should be played in from the touchline with the feet. Maybe, that's just because we've always seem so sheyte at throw ins right enough ...

    Fair enough. I agree our attacking options need to be better.

    Didn’t dismiss him , just think the squad is unbalanced, lots of midfield players , struggling upfront ?

    Yep. Same age as messi. Let's see what ability the guy has before dismissing him.

    Normally we've signed at least one donkey by this time.

    Need to reserve judgment on the financial aspect (however wasn't it JJ who was on of the first to point out the studied vagueness in some of the financial statements that were being made) but it's not hard to see how DB was not happy with the direction of the club. Early days, but my gut feeling is that the departure of JLow is a step in the right direction. Hope GB stays, and the last thing we need right now is a change of manager, though I noticed GC said words to the effect that he would work with any board etc., etc.

    Livi have option of recalling him in Jan and taking into account he has just signed a new deal with them til 2021 and he is returning from injury I think this loan may be weighted more in the favour of the lender. That said all the best at Firhill.

    We don’t know the facts so I’ll reserve judgement but these stemmed from the comments from Beattie who clearly implied concerns at how the club was being run ... self serving maybe

    Totally agree. Theres been enough corporate finance, law and accountancy on this thread though so I will keep my thoughts to myself! The audited accounts will tell all, and these won’t be available until October/November time I guess.

    OK .... the rumours that there were financial problems under the previous board. (an example and on the money !)

    I seem to remember de vita scoring a few goals the season livi got promoted.

    Maybe should have said was alarming. Robson may well provide width as will De Vita. Don't include Cardle due to his favoured style.

    Where’s the lack of width exactly ? Cradle De Vita Williamson Robson ?

    Always striked me as a classy player. Gamble on fitness not so important with him being on loan. Think he fills a gap in the squad if only as wingback cover but could be a first team choice if we change our formation. The lack of width in the squad is alarming. If this loan signing helps free money to strengthen the squad to bring in a couple of young strikers/forwards then it's a good deal.

    And can he score goals? We need goalscorers.

    That’ll be the rumours that started on here, other forums and social media by people who weren’t privy to such information? I don’t recall the statement from Mr Beattie mentioning anything about financial irregularities- just that they weren’t happy with the direction of the club. I can appreciate that they’re miffed at getting removed - no-one would be happy at that. Hope this doesn’t descend into he said she said.
