  1. Hostile perhaps, but number of active posters seem to have fallen @allyo
  2. When LIB struggles for positives, then I do too. But being Thistle, we’ll probably confound everyone and pick up 3 points.
  3. The Forum ironically is a lot quieter these days. Many long-standing users no longer post. Thats a shame

    To be fair to GRE, an option of the Board continuing under David Beattie could have been an outcome.

    Not at all. Just a nervousness around how we transition over the next few months. FWIW I met Jacqui several times and quite liked her.

    Hmmm... So who is pulling the strings here? We’d have been safer under DB
  7. This m’lady. It’s going to be a crucial couple of months for the management team. We had a chance to get off the bottom of the league last night but couldn’t take it. We need 3 points off Dunfermline IMO.
  8. Dools shall always be the epitome of what it means to be a Jag. I sincerely hope he will be back as a coach soon.
  9. Agree Norgethistle. Quite how we ended up with such a sh*te squad is beyond me, but I’d welcome 3 points more than I’d welcome Christmas.

    I’ve stayed out of this debate so far as I don’t understand Company Law. But to suggest that a Club like ours should be happy breaking the law is plain silly. We are Thistle, something must differentiate us from other less scrupulous clubs. Our standards should be higher. We have shown over the years a resistance to bigotry and those that might want to suppress diversity (eg LGBT, amputee football, embracing refugees). Our ethics need to be strong & clear. That is the Club I love and follow.
  11. Well captured Camallain. We really should have taken confidence from that start and kicked on.
  12. This captures it for me. We are simply a work in progress this season; expectations have to be survival in the Championship. I do miss the times of more recent years when we might have gone Into a Celtic tie hoping to attack and create a result. Now, with this squad, we’d do well to avoid a pummelling.
  13. Good to get through, but if Penicuik are troubling us at Firhill then we don’t have the right squad or mentality. But I remain optimistic that McCall can address this over the next 2-3 months.

    Either way, some official clarity would be good before this thread hits 200 pages
  15. Agree m’lady. To me it looks as if he’s still assessing the ‘squad’ he inherited; ahead of making decisions in the January window.

    No, he was in the North Stand at the time.

    Live & let live. I don’t agree with the decision to have hired Caldwell, but if Jacqui is a fan then she should be able to attend games without criticism.

    Let’s not forget David Beattie in all of this. Presumably he steps down as Chairman now after a couple of spells when he brought some much needed stability behind the scenes.
  19. Erskine but also O’Donnell. It was an exciting team that really kicked on after beating the Pars 5-1 at Firhill.

    Colin Weir has been extremely generous in his gesture. Let’s hope what emerges is a strong board with the right people to ensure the Club remains sustainable.

    I think the last time I got to sit in the Main Stand was at a testimonial game; maybe Kenny Arthur’s? I do like the stand but I badly needs a bit of TLC.
