  1. Trotter

    Vs Morton

    Positives- Both wing backs very good. O’Ware in that last 30 mins a colossus at heart of defence. Led by example right down to telling the ball kids not to be in a hurry to get the ball back. Negatives- Banzo. However I think the time out the side with suspension may do him good. Been trying to do everything for too long this season. He’ll come again but for now the enforced rest I’m sure will help. Miller. Not good enough. Too many times when down to 10 he let his man play a simple 1/2 as he wasn’t tracking. Few seconds later he’ll have his hands oh his hips or pointing/moaning at others. That said when only replacement is Mansell then we’re stuck with him just now.
  2. Yeah but at the same time, Penrice cane back after a successful loan spell at Livingston & told he wasn’t fit enough by the manager at that point. Same manager who let Nisbet go...

    This ‘business’ /consortium... Any other businesses that they've invested in that have been successful that give PTFC fans hope? Looking to OGC Nice & Barnsley that would be a no.

    Can’t believe some are still on side with this consortium after recent goings on at Barnsley. Sold, arguably, their best player & didn’t reinvest the monies. They are either in or just outside relegation places Sacked a popular manager. Their fans turning on BoD & talking boycotts. Exactly the same as what happened at OGC Nice. Why does anyone think we’ll be different?!
  5. Miller should’ve been told at HT to run the width of 18 yd box & on the shoulders of the centre halves. Ridiculous some of the positions he was taking up. It left us with no one or one man in the box at times when we got into decent wide positions. Banzo- I’m a massive fan but today was ridiculous. Dropping too deep. Taking the ball of centre halves to pass it out to Williamson or Robson. If O’Ware/McGinty not capable of even doing that then neither should be in the team. Finally, as someone who cancelled Jagzone, were injuries the reason for the make up of our bench today? 2 centre halves & 2 full backs with no Mansell. I know he’s no great shakes but we could’ve done with a forward player on the bench. Just as an added extra. Does Mitch Austin still exist/still at the club?

    How are Barnsley getting on this season? Sold, arguably, their best player & are either in or just outside relegation places. Doesn’t look like they invested much in the Summer either. Same as OGC Nice fans complaining about- lack of investment. Why does anyone think we’ll be different?!

    Do I want fan ownership? Yes Do I want Jackie Low anywhere near my club again? No Do I want a foreign consortium that may (may not be they’ve answered nothing about their plans) flood the club with Barnsley youth players? Bear in mind that OGC Nice fans were calling for a fans boycott due to Lee/Conway running of their club. Doesn’t bode well. I also think it miraculous that as soon as there was another offer on the table the New City bid is now 3/4 weeks away from completion. Been on the go for 3/4 months & not had the decency to speak to any of our fans groups. Guys on here with more ITK at boardroom. Aside from Low, why is Conway/Lee more favourable than fan ownership? They’ve told us nothing either about their plans for running of the club. Truthfully- We’re damned if we do, damned if we don’t. So much for the positivity of Ian McCall’s return at beginning of the week.
  8. McCall’s comments a few weeks back about his Ayr team winning at Firhill: ”Ayr United is a fantastic club but we shouldn’t be coming to Firhill and winning 4 on the bounce.” We were 2-1 up against his Ayr side (playing the better football also) when Dallas sent off Gordon. McCall isn’t daft. He knows the squad far from perfect but could potentially be playing Ayr in a play off match if the right man in charge & able to get best out of a settled team & system between now & season end. I’ve heard the same as a few other folk that McCall (& Scally) to be unveiled tomorrow as already agreed the deal. Let’s wait & see. Edited to add, was told Lennon approached at same time as McCall but McCall was/is first choice. Only a guess but think DL knew that & as soon as McCall approach made public Clyde announced new deal. That all sounds too good to be true to be done as quickly as was with DL. & if DL was interested in sure it would’ve happened.
  9. Good call. Niamg & Galasso also. That’s a squad of 26 players who are all in or around first team squad. No one can say he hasn’t been backed.
  10. I thought that would happen after County win in Betfred.
  11. Sneddon Fox Williamson Kakay Penrice Robson Hall O’Ware McGinty Saunders Bannigan Cole Gordon Slater Palmer Harkins Zanatta Jones Miller Mansell Cardle De Vita Sub: Austin Sub:Niamg Wilson Galasso & by my reckoning of Caldwell’s non-signings.... he’s given Banzo a new contract & made him captain. Then McGinty now made Captain. He announced Sneddon as his number one. that leaves Penrice (didn’t miss a minute of playing time last season), Slater & O’Ware as players he didn’t bring in. So... how long does Caldwell get to turn things around? He’s got his squad.
  12. No apologies as both were told by the manager. Perhaps chairman/chief executive have intervened? Let’s wait & see if the loan signings materialise. List the squad we have today & tell me where the gaps are if we keep all our players.
  13. Danny Lennon. Unfortunately we’re stuck with Caldwell. Zanetta looks a player but can’t help but wonder whether we should’ve kept Celtic money to pay Caldwell off.
  14. 2 signings in 2 days, this one being on a 2 year contract. Where’s this money coming from? Those in the know seemed to suggest that the former BoD replaced because of overspending budgets? Have they found money down the back of the sofa? Have the potential new owners given the green light to sign players who aren’t Barnsley reserves? Is Caldwell still being given time after Friday’s debacle?

    Another week, no news. This has been dragging on for months now. First ‘official’ confirmation about 2 months ago now. With 1 point out of 6 in the league, a squad which is incomplete & playing a County side today that steamrollered us home & away when it mattered to them in the championship last season, there’s a good chance we may be out the cup at 5pm Anyone else still wondering why .the ‘billionaire’ head of a venture capital firm wants to buy a struggling Glasgow club with a 3 sided ground surrounded by student properties? Anyone think Beattie will manage to fund his way to Firhill this week after seemingly being unable to last week? Someone on here claimed takeover would be positive as club stagnating etc. That looks prophetic now!
