    Today was the 3rd anniversary of Robert's death, this is the wreath we took up to his grave. There is a thread talking about Thistle being a family club, anyone reading this thread can see what a great club we are.

    Seriously fed up with constant immature and frankly pathetic bickering on here. This isn't twitter, where any random person can turn up and badmouth any random person, and while there's not a lot can be done about it it's easily avoided. This forum is a relatively small community of Thistle fans who want to discuss Thistle. It might be online, but anyone coming on here and slagging other people and just basically looking for trouble is acting like the ar*ehole in the pub, attention seeking, dominating discussions and ruining it for everyone else. It's on virtually every thread and therefore difficult to avoid. The rest of us just have to scroll through it to find the decent conversation which is regularly drowned out. I'd ask people to stop, but I know that won't help. Anyway.

    May be of interest to the forum. I have sent the following email to the Club ([email protected] and [email protected]). I will let you know if/when I receive a reply

    I’ve probably been a right argumentative d!ck to many of you on here over the years. But I think the events of the last few weeks have put a perspective on there’s really more to life than football. As disappointing as relegation would be if it happened that the season officially ended today and the league placing stood it will be worth putting up with, if as much as one life is saved. most importantly I hope all of the Partick Thistle family keep safe so we are all here to agree/argue with each other for next season. Keep safe everyone

    Like dogs after a bone. Folk have tried being polite, jokey ways to try to get this to stop. I've had enough. Look up. The whole ******* world is in crisis. People are dying in their thousands. If you're around in a years time then lucky you, resume your point scoring exercise then. But in the mean time just stop. Make yourself useful. Help someone in need. If you can't do that, just shut the **** up.

    Well done to both of our U18s who started today for Scottish Schools U18 against Northern Ireland with Gospel scoring our goal in a 1-1 draw. Whilst there are areas that definitely need to improve at our club there are still positives out there

    Yesterday I reached the ripe old age of 80. At 10am my house received a call from Jacqui Low, unfortunately I was out at the time, but a message was left on the phone. Just after 12o'clock I answered the phone to Jacqui Low who congratulated me on my birthday. We spoke for nearly 20 minutes just talking about the "Jags" Before we closed the call she said she would phone in a couple of weeks just to see how I was getting along in this difficult time, she also said when the footie starts again, she would try and get me up to Firhill for a birthday prezzie. This is why I support Partick Thistle. The Partick Thistle family club. Love you all.

    I've received a prompt response from Gerry Britton (credit where it's due there, there have been times in the past when emails to the club have been completely ignored) and I think we'll be getting a statement about the land issue (and related matters) fairly shortly. The impression I got is that they've clearly been alive to some of the renewed interest in this issue.

    .....or keep it at 42 clubs and have three divisions, with two leagues comprising twenty clubs each plus a top league of two clubs.

    I don't want Thistle to get relegated but to stay up off the back of the Coronavirus would be embarrassing. If we get relegated as it stands then it's unfortunate BUT or own fault for being bottom of the league (on points and on average points per game). Ideally we'd get to finish the season but ideally we wouldn't be in the middle of a pandemic and we don't live in an ideal world. We sound like pathetic Sevco Newco Zombie The Rangers 2012 fans greetin about sporting integrity when we're where we are because we've been shite. Bottom line is if we hadn't been honking all season we'd have nothing to worry about.

    There is enough information to entitle us to ask the questions and to expect transparent responses, and to draw adverse inferences from inadequate responses. The whole point of a move to fan ownership is greater transparency about how Thistle is run so that it is run more explicitly for the benefit of the punters that underpin its identity. How this transaction was done, who benefited from it, and what risks it exposes the Club to if things go wrong is a test case for how serious 3BC is about getting a sustainable solution over the line. Just throwing your hands up in the air and going “oh well we don’t know all the facts” would be a pretty shit approach in most other walks of life and it’s a shit approach to scrutiny of those who currently own and control our 144 year old Club.

    I really have never understood why we need 2 assistant managers and why Archibald came back. Whatever the reason McCall's current tenure as manager after a promising start has been very disappointing and unless we have a sudden upturn in form we are going to be relegated for the 2nd time in 3 years. Considering McCall will have had 30 games to keep us in the league, if we did go down he has got to shoulder the responsibility for it.

    I'm not sure if it's a case on here of some folk taking themselves too seriously, or some folk on here taking the opinions of others too seriously, but a reality check every now and again is surely in order. Just because a poster for a plethora of reasons doesn't currently attend Jags games shouldn't preclude that same poster from posting on a plethora of Jags related topics. After all the same punter may well have previously attended many times over the number of games a current regular attender has done. As a slight aside I find opinionated posts from punters that weren't at a particular game rather tedious. But at the same time I can value the opinions of those watching thru the likes of Jagzone re individual decisions over handballs penalty decisions etc. But that's just me. Kinda feel that when things go awry on here it's largely down to things being taken (as opposed to being meant) too seriously. In saying so I've probably walked into my own trap a la Zimmerman "my enemy in the instant that I preach". Whatever, whether the likes of GRE regularly attends games or doesn't is largely irrelevant. Still don't think a boycott is appropriate.

    With the current lack of action on the pitch, I wanted to celebrate the action off the pitch with your funniest Red and Yellow army shout outs at a game. This is why I love this club so much. Mine is as follows... A through ball is played for striker Quinton Jacobs (may have been from Albert Craig) but hit too hard and the ball goes out for a goal kick. The guy behind me jumps up and shouts out ‘He’s from Namibia, not f*****g Kenya!’ Brilliant .

    I think the season should be null and void. Even if they say the season isnt null and void and we are relegated as it stands we need to move on and end this confusion. Bugger football. The nations health is foremost

    I imagine the problem dates back to the outbreak of WCPH-19 (more commonly known as Whocanpeehigher) that has contaminated a few threads over the past few months. It was thought it had been contained when the "New Owner" thread was shut down but it's inexplicably spread to other non related threads. The Forum's thus had to self isolate itself . The cure as always is to meticulously wash your hands off any of these threads. Twenty seconds should be more than enough time to do so.

    I am sure that every Thistle fan will support the club the best they can. Fans on this forum have contributed a lot like sponsoring players, either on their own or via Bowen Boys competitions, also some on the forum buy season tickets knowing they will not use them or only get to a few games in the season. But the next few months or longer are going to be very uncertain for most of us and some sadly could end up in a worst financial position than they currently are and they could suffer health wise as well. Lets hope everybody with connections to Thistle and Thistle as a club come through this.

    That was my first game at Firhill after moving to Glasgow having lived in the north of Scotland and Sweden for a good part of my life. Was in the away end with some Killie supporting friends and became a firm Thistle supporter before half time.

    Can only agree with everything that has already been said. We are all Thistle fans and when we disagree it is because we only want the best for our team. 24th March this year is the 3rd anniversary of young Robert's passing, there are a lot more important things in life than football. All the best to everybody with Thistle connections and i hope we are all back cheering the team on asap.

    What if some players or club staff test positive? Are the SFA/SPFL going to force them to play games in grounds that are possibly contaminated? At the end of the day, football is only a game and people’s well-being comes first.

    Looking in from Norway the whole UK and Scottish governments handling of this situation is appalling, that’s before they allow an old firm game to take place in 4 days time with a virus situation that is growing exponentially on a daily basis. Then you have SFA / SPFL who have stated they will not help any of their member clubs that get into difficulties if season is cancelled, postponed or played behind closed doors. I thought our board were amateurs, but the 2 governments and 2 football bodies make the club look ultra professional

    In this particular instance NDAs, if in existence, are not there for the benefit of the Club, but for the benefit of one or more of the parties to the transaction. You are happy, without evidence, to selectively and misleadingly to conflate things to imply David Beattie and others made substantial profits from all of this, but then run shy when others tell you the public domain information doesn’t support those inferences being drawn. But if people raise concerns and ask questions about what it might mean for the Club’s relationship with its actual majority shareholder, you throw your hands up in the air and say “we don’t have all the facts, just wait and see until it’s too late for anyone to do anything about it if we have a real problem here”. Some of us believe in holding people with money and power to account and forcing them to be as open and honest with the ordinary punter. If there is a risk the punters are being played I’d rather they knew that risk now than after their Club has been put in danger. And unlike you I’m not happy to take “we have the best of intentions” and “trust us” or “wait and see” as a satisfactory answer. Fan ownership, if it means anything, means transparency. If we haven’t got that there’s no ******* point. Just give up now and let a couple of entrepreneurs take a punt. At least there’s a chance they’ll be spending their own money if it goes down the tubes.

    Has anyone contacted Maryhill CID as I'm sure that the Taggart team need to re-examine the passing of Colin Weir. We have now established motive, so I hope Jacqui Low has an alibi, otherwise all we will need is a means. My money is on poison. Has anyone else heard the rumour that Death In Paradise is relocating to The Firhill Basin ?

    He lives in Aberdeen and has work commitments. He wants fans to boycott games because he doesn't like who has been appointed as short term Chairman. Sorry mate , I'll be there on Tuesday supporting my team and if the lose I'll be there at the next game and so on until the end of the season. Yes I know I am a Fanboy.

    You were giving impression Beattie et al had walked away with a million quid profit. You were misleading people and/or wrong. A loss of £160,000 was actually made (per the publicly available accounts). As I have said previously only the individuals concerned know their own motivations and so this is simply endless and quite boring speculation, but if you all feel the need to have that debate, it should at least be based on facts?

    Can you not get a seat in Ibrox or something pal? Because the pish you spout certainly sounds like you should be a card carrying member of the Subway Loyal. Jacqui Low's competency as to running a football club has nothing to do with her gender. And if you or anyone else thinks so ... well, you're the ******** - so don't come back to Firhill, thanks.

    On this topic, it is a pet hate of mine when commentators and pundits refer to penalty shoot-outs as a lottery. There is a clear skill at taking a penalty and if you're good at it you'll score 99 in a 100 as no keeper can save a well struck, top corner penalty. The likes of Alan Shearer and Matt Le Tissier always did this and their records were close to perfect. Nations like Germany realise this and haven't lost a shoot-out since 1972 (I think)- other teams (e.g., England) go in with the mentality that it's all a lottery and tend to lose more than win.

    The conspiracy theory I’m ruminating over is that this has been designed this way to insulate a vanity project. For as long as 3BC owns a key bit of the ground it has an asset it can borrow against. That asset can then be used to make it look like someone is injecting “new investment” into the club when really all they’ve done is pay for it by depriving the club of beneficial ownership of the stadium it occupies.
