  1. Stats Watch 2018-19

    Pat Keogh scored more against us than for us.
  2. Team rebuilding

    In his interview he did say that he was willing to cover left and right back as well just to get a game.
  3. Team rebuilding

    One for the long term but how about taking a punt on signing up Matteo Silva for ThistleWeir? He obviously has grit and determination in bucketloads and should inherit a fair measure of skill to go along with it.
  4. Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo New Signing

    Signing Andrea who is a wide attacking player and non-striker (but still scores goals) means that Miles, who has usually played as a wide attacker but could play as a striker (although he does not score many goals), can now player as a striker. Kris already is a striker, and Chris, Blair and Aiden give us goal-scoring options, although they are not strikers. So indirectly, signing Andrea effectively gives us one more striker. Not sure if that makes much sense, but it may be the way in which Archie's mind is working.
  5. Aiden FitzPartick Thistle vs Brendan's mobile disco

    "Solid" is a bit feeble for the Mighty McGinty. How about that solo run right through their defence (premiered at Stranraer on Tuesday), which so impressed his team mates that they gave the ball back to him out on the wing. You could try "silky", "speedy", "dynamic", "lightfooted", "graceful" or even "Messianic".
  6. Aiden FitzPartick Thistle vs Brendan's mobile disco

    James Penrice and Aiden Fitzpatrick excellent adverts for ThistleWeir.
  7. Aiden FitzPartick Thistle vs Brendan's mobile disco

    I would often agree with you, but today he has landed 2 on McGinty’s head, but perhaps too high and floaty to allow him to generate much power.
  8. Aiden FitzPartick Thistle vs Brendan's mobile disco

    As the other forward players have generally had more impact, without the Storey option, could it be thought to replace Doolan with Erskine and play without a recognised Number 9? The others could interchange and perhaps confuse the Celtic back line. I could see Erskine, Spittal or Mutombo scoring.
  9. Team rebuilding

    Al Ahly sounds like short for Alan Archibald in Egyptian.
  10. Challenge Cup draw

    You are absolutely right about Hreinn. It was Old Bayview in 1997 and he signed my daughter's autograph book "Turbo", so we still have the written evidence to prove it.
  11. Challenge Cup draw

    The first game was the most miserable ever, with a slow moving crane in the dockyard providing the majority of the entertainment. The car park was coated in some form of muddy sludge which took ages to wash off the shoes.
  12. Challenge Cup draw

    The 8 glamour European teams were drawn (but not against each other) in the first 8 ties. So was the draw fixed in some way?
  13. Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo New Signing

    Kevin. I am actually Mr Hardplace, so your post is caught between a Roque and a HardPlace
  14. Stranraer v Partick Thistle

    Apart from the goals, the highlight was a brilliant solo run by McGinty all the way from his own half to the other penalty box. Showed a fair turn of pace.
  15. Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo New Signing

    I like Andrea. He is a fun player. Always looking to get forward and do something. Physical presence but a fair bit of skill. He will do fine in the championship.
