  1. Well, clever clogs, are you putting yourself forward to give the Working Group the benefit of your wisdom?
  2. That seems unnecessarily pessimistic (even for you :-) ). We're no doomed, yet!
  3. A good read, as always, SMCF. Re thought 5 - the players returning to the field after half time at EEP were welcomed back with stony silence, I noticed. Likewise the substitutions drew no applause either. Sending a message or apathy, I'm not sure.
  4. I single out JJ because over the years his adversaries have come and gone, but he appears consistently sure that he, and he alone, has the secret to life, the universe and everything, and is prepared to share his insights at interminable length. I suspect that the current crop of protagonists are equally certain that they are right, and I hope they will forgive me for not giving them equal status, but I can't be bothered name-checking them all.
  5. I go from one thread to "next unread thread", which means that I don't know which thread is going to be next. This causes me to accidentally hit these Mega-threads of Tedium that I wouldn't choose to read if I saw it the index. I guess I need to change my browsing habits here. What I notice is that combatants come and go, but the one consistent poster of continually agumentative guff is Jordanhill Jag. This goes back to threads of identical style where JJ and Red Monkey used to go at it interminably, over what I no longer remember, maybe 10 years ago. Accordingly, I skip through JJ's endless self-important posts and, increasingly those of the other contributors to these discussions(?). I guess Ineed to put JJ on ignore again so, if I miss other contributors' Bon Mots, then we are both probably the poorer for it. Now where is Dave Johnston these days...?
  6. I remember that bloke running to games, although I never knew him. I think his record away day was Dumfries for a Queens game!
  7. Ah - panto season has arrived...
  8. Aye, he is alive and well and biding in the heelans. He and Rosie (MacCulloch) live in Invergordon and follow Rosie's childhood team, Ross County. Haven't seen him at the last couple of games, but he does some work for County on match days.
  9. I had a "Mr Singh's" curry pie at half-time today and it was pretty awful for £2.80 (all dried up and the crust was very hard) Hope the standard of food improves under new leadership. Service in the stall at the city end of the JH was excellent, though.
  10. I bought one before the game from the excellent volunteers shop in the JHS. After that game I'm not sure I want to look at those guys for another 12 months.....:-(
  11. Zanatta is a pathetic excuse for a football player and seems to have got worse with every game. His tactic of diving when he loses the ball is embarrassing in the extreme. The dives are even very poorly executed and utterly unconvincing, and must stop.
  12. George Carson, of jags lottery and 800 club fame, came up with that idea in the 1990s. In the same subject, and in the same decade, I flew into Manchester airport and I think it was Stockport County who had their name emblazoned on their stand roof for all to see.

    New Owner

    For what it's worth, I'm very happy that CW has generously done this. Also, I have no doubt that he has only the best interests of the club at heart, which could not be guaranteed in the (unknown) plans of a mystery financial consortium. I think this is the best possible outcome, given that the current board wanted out. Clearly there is a lot of work to be done to get the right people in place to take the club forward, but it is a far better outcome than seeing the club go to a bunch/pair/single financial predator whose reasons for interest in Thistle are still unknown after all this time. I understand that the club has been run by "business men" for most of its history, but the world has changed and who can say that fans ownership won't provide more on-field success than we have enjoyed under the traditional model? Not a lot to live up to really, is it? I might even give TFE a wee pledge myself......
