I've stayed out of this debate as, to be honest, I didn't (and still don't ) understand the intricacies and complexities involved in a venture of this sort. I suspect I'm not alone in that.
Now, though, it appears we're reaching the culmination of several months of noise and silence, in equal measure, associated with the process; and it seems that a sort of peace is breaking out. Whether the final deal, in terms of full fan ownership or an approximate model, will prove to be the holy grail we've been grasping at for over 30 years now, and delivers a long lasting sustainable club, remains to be seen. But, as a restless fan myself, burdened with worries and fears over the long term future of Thistle, I feel a sense of relief and at least part closure now to this long running saga.
I'll never know whether the consortium that planned to take over the club would've been the better, or best, option for us; I'll never know what their goal was, but the Colin Weir-led takeover, as now announced, does enthuse me. I'm rambling on now, but I do genuinely feel significant relief that we appear to have taken a very healthy step into the future for the wellbeing of the PTFC.
Proud to be a Jag.
