  1. Thanks for organizing this competition AJ, sorry got waylaid at the weekend and couldn't get to my computer in time for the Falkirk game. Was going to predict 3-1 Thistle again, so my early exit is all fair and square.
  2. Gutted that we shot ourselves in the foot last night. Neither side did enough to win and the tie merited a penalty shoot-out. It's a sickener to think that Madden's penalty inclinations were pre-supposed (very crafty Levein), and the second was completely out of order. By contrast, it's outrageous that he denied us such an obvious penalty in the last minute. He clearly didn't fancy another 30 minutes in the rain.
  3. "We're confident we can win" ~ Gary Caldwell "We've got everything to lose" ~ Conor Hazard Love the way these boys are talking, spot on. Also, the club backing them with an overnight stay in Edinburgh is superb. By far, the biggest game of our season so far coming up; here's hoping we play as we can and ye just never know. By the lights
  4. 800 out of the 1400 sold by 2pm Monday, hopefully a few hundred more by the close of play tomorrow. First team training at Firhill this afternoon.
  5. Hey, I'm always being told to get a life, so I can't afford to lose one! Thistle 2 United 2 Cheers AJ
  6. Bottom line, a decent result, but what a great opportunity spurned. Hearts roundly and loudly booed from the park, fans ranting and raving at Levein. In that first half, our midfield were abysmal yet again. Harkins, Slater, Fitzpatrick all hopeless. Mansell and Elliott aside, pressing was non existent, we won no second balls, all passing was either negative or went astray, and we seemed barely able to string 3 passes together, all resulting in prolonged waves of pressure. It was a horrific site to behold. Saunders cheap concession of the corner was typical of the poor quality, although he had a fine game aside from that. In fact, the Hazard-Saunders-Anderson apex was the spine that we can thank for withstanding the unreasonable level of pressure, and that's got to be deemed a positive after the County/Dunfermline debacle. Substitutions came far too late in the day and why oh why oh why did he bring McGinty on to hold out for a draw? All common sense told that we should have went in for the kill in the final minutes. Nothing to fear at Tynecastle except fear itself. 'mon tae **** Jags.
  7. Whistle to whistle, it beggars belief how our half-time Saturday position compares to our Tuesday full-time. It's almost as if they were physically and mentally drained from one point to another. Caldwell's post-match reflects how we're all feeling - traumatised. Where Gary's tanker goes from here I do not know, but it's off course and he seems unable to navigate.
  8. I'll have a wee guess later, meantime... 15.07.2004 Royal Highland Fusiliers [a] W9-0 (Friendly) 15.07.2006 Lancaster City [a] W2-1 (Friendly) 15.07.2008 Stirling Albion [a] W2-0 (Friendly) 15.07.2016 Airdrieonians [a] W1-0 (League Cup Group E - game 1) 100% win rate for the Jags in Rab's birthday lifetime, sum boi
  9. Indeed. Another classic second half collapse. http://partickthistleahistory.wikifoundry.com/page/v+St+Johnstone+%28H%29+Nov+1984
  10. Thought our pressing game was awesome in the first half, County never had a minutes peace and our two goal lead came naturally as a result of that endeavour. Bizarrely, the second half was the exact opposite. County did all the pressing, our midfield disappeared, and our much-heralded new defence looked hopeless under the pressure. Could easily have been six. Caldwell, at least, seems to be watching the same game as me these days, but it remains to be seen if he can impress upon them that 90 minute mentality. And by the way, if a fit team, pressing all over the park for 90 minutes, is his game, why on earth are we fielding players who are clearly incapable of lasting the required 90 minutes? He says some of the players will need to take a look at themselves in the mirror this morning; maybe he should be doing the same.
  11. Oh, it's happened alright, don't worry about that. Around 100 times in fact, mostly in the free scoring bygone days of old. The latest three: 29.10.2014 Celtic [a] L0-6 | ht 0-1 (League Cup Quarter Final) 26.03.2014 Celtic [h] L1-5 | ht 0-1 (SPFL Premiership - game 31) 23.01.2010 Dunfermline Athletic [h] L1-4 | ht 0-0 (SFL First Division - game 21) The joint club-record: 12.12.1891 Northern [a] L4-9 | ht 4-2 (Scottish Alliance - game 11) 08.10.1892 Cowlairs [a] L3-8 | ht 0-1 (Scottish Alliance - game 5)

  13. Indeed! I'm willing Arbroath on to the title this season, don't tell anybody.

Remarkably, he becomes the FIFTH player of the 2018-19 season to join our scoring debutants club. In competitive action, it's the second greatest number in any given season of the club's history.
