  1. Is there anything in the constitution to allow the SFA to become involved in this omnishambles?
  2. I'm a glass half full person by nature, but the overall outlook for the game, in Scotland particularly, is less than promising. Trying hard to think of a scenario/format that would work but genuinely struggling.
  3. That's right, but according to this Wiki article, WoSRUFC derived the colours from Partick FC. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partick_F.C.
  4. That's always been my understanding too, and it is true; however, according to the link I put up, West of Scotland RUFC derived the red & yellow themselves from Partick FC. Therefore, we indirectly acquired our famous hoops from our erstwhile Partick neighbours, apparently.
  5. And there WAS a Partick Violet, as I recently suggested (from a very cloudy memory...not contemporaneous, obviously), AND a Partick Ramblers. Christ! http://glasgowpunter.blogspot.com/2012/11/promotion-run-jog-around-partick.html?m=1
  6. So, it turns out our immortal Red'n'Yella was indirectly lifted from the 'FC'!
  7. One team in Partick, there's only one team in Partick. One team in Paaartick, there's only one team in Partick.
  8. I've been a fierce critic of his, but this is a different thing altogether. I hope he pulls through and recovers to full health.
  9. ... he's a Partick Thistle man, he's better than Zidane, we've got super Ian McCall.
  10. He's indestructible... Yessss!
  11. Better no be postponed. I've just landed, having taken a punt on the weather. Mon Thistle. Intaerrum.
  12. I started going in the 1965/66 season, so I got to see Davie McParland playing many times. I also saw most games where he managed us, and yes, that includes The game. I am not able to cite another individual during my time of being a Jag who encapsulates the Thistle 'thing' or spirit or whatever that indescribable, intangible element or ingredient is more than Mr McParland did/does. I can't say any more than that about him. He is more than anything or anybody else the reason why I am a Partick Thistle supporter.
