    State of Play

    Yes - I fully agree. Neither have achieved that this season, although at least Neilson took his team to the ultimate hurdle. We, despite JayLo's arrogance, failed to get out of the bottom six all season.

    Either way, we should see ourselves as capable of being better than both. Financially and on the park. I suspect that may be a forlorn hope though.

    I'll bow to your superior knowledge if that was the case. But he certainly inherited a load of junk from Csaba Laszlo.

    No idea what your point is from that post. The point of competing is to win promotion, not to make money.

    Neilson made a big difference to Dundee United once he took over. Inherited a lot of dross and but for inability to take penalties might have achieved something significant. They'll skate this division next season.

    Being able to score penalties does have its benefits.

    Ridiculous statement whichever way you look at it. Have a look at his record Jagfox and then you'll find that's nonsense. Apart from a few games?? Either take all games into consideration or none at all - you decide. You're a good poster, but you've got this one wrong. And for the avoidance of doubt, I don't want him to be still be at Firhill. I'm just made up that he's an ex-Jag who got to play in a Scottish Cup Final and scored.

    Didn't Simon Donnelly score in a League Cup Final last century?? Who did JaggyMac score against? He didn't score that many. Archie, I remember well - the most boring final ever and he almost made it interesting. For some reason I have it in my head that Jim Melrose scored in a losing final, but I cannot remember which one right now.

    Wow - well done!! Thanks for that, all this century too. I suppose Stevie Chalmers in 1969 against the dead club qualifies too.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^ Edwards, Doolan, Erskine, Booth, Lawless, Elliott and Bannigan were/are people who care about the club. Pity Archie continued with chancers like Osman, Barton, Dumbuya (the worst **** of the lot), Storey and McGinn. I'll exempt Sammon because although he never ever fitted he scored 10 goals. And you do not do that if you are a diddy.

    Guess that begs a quiz question. Jags players who have scored in a cup final before or after playing for the Jags? Apart from the 23rd October 1971 of course. Anyway, pleased for Ryan. He was so far out of favour for most of the season that his best chance of being at the Cup Final was buying a ticket. Celtic were howling today. Just a shame that Berra managed to be the most howling player on the park.

    Fair enough. I apologise.

    Jeezuz, can't believe I'm having to respond to this. Think you've got that one totally wrong TL. Are you suggesting that CE and KD stole a wage in the last two seasons? Because that appears to be what you are implying. If CE and KD were complacent then what the **** were the rest of them up to???

    Youth Academy closing ?

    Two things. Their performances and their treatment. Their treatment was nothing short of scandalous. That much is easy to agree on (I hope). Their performances, certainly not up to the high standards that they set themselves 2013-2017. And let's not forget the utter rubbish that Archie signed post-Livingston which will not have helped. Should they have been cut some slack? My understanding is that it had become personal between Chris and GC even before last Christmas, so a parting of the ways was inevitable in that case. Dools is entirely another matter though, and GC does not come out well in that one.

    I've been following this club since 1966 and I would be delighted to have Erskine and Doolan in next season's squad no problem. I've witnessed the good, the bad, the charlatans and Charnley, and those two gentlemen bleed Thistle. Which is something special in this day when there is no loyalty in football at all. Now I understand that Caldwell wants to have his own squad without the influence of the previous regime. However what has happened with Doolan and Erskine is crass beyond stupidity. And leaving aside their service to the club, basic manners dictate that their enforced departures should have been handled with more dignity. Caldwell may well have made the decision to get rid of both. But the club had a major duty to ensure that the exits of both were handled appropriately. It didn't and therefore it has to take the rap for that.
