    Caldwell’s Massive 7 Days

    What did folk think of the Manager on Sportsound tonight? I thought he did okay.

    East Fife v Jags, 9/2/19

    Can't believe that people are not applying common sense / thinking logically about the pass back incident. It is no different from a situation where the goalie takes a touch then picks it up. A free kick all day! Why are people mystified? Anyway! We got away with it!

    First game at Broomfield in a 3-0 reverse and we were awful. I was about 12 in 1958 and my next game was against Airdrie again, at Firhill and It was another 3-0 defeat on Grand National day. Pitch had no grass on it and ball would have bounced over a house and the Airdrie goalie - Beaton, I think, was able to kick colossal distances. Why did I persist? Looking back, I don't know, but I'm glad I did despite some huge disappointments over 60 years.

    Barnet looked a super team against Brentford earlier in the week. Hardly gave the ball away and coped well with a side several divisions above them. Wouldn't it be nice if we have turned a corner and start being stuffy/hard to beat and able to give the fans surprises occasionally? One thing about the Jags in the last thirty odd years we are pretty predictable and not in a good way either. Gone are the days when we whipped an about to win the league/ wonderful Dundee team 3-0 at Firhill after they had won 5-1 at Ibrox. That Dundee team got to the semis of the European Cup the following year. Gary's imports just MIGHT change the mould for the better; fingers firmly crossed!

    Thanks AJ for comment and I am thinking of you and your loss as I write this. Healing can take a long time and I know that you are proud of what your son achieved in his all too short life.

    Stats Watch 2018-19

    The storm of 1968 was Sunday night into Monday if I remember correctly. It sticks in my memory because a good pal was killed in a car crash on Thursday 18th January that year and his last Jags match was the 2-2 draw at home to Motherwell in December (?) He had graduated from Strathclyde in 1967 but , poor soul, didn't get much of a working career before he was taken. Sad memories of all those years ago.

    I have a tear in my eye right now ..... I live half a mile from the Macaroni Arena and am sorely tempted to start going there!! What has happened to my team?

    Falkirk game

    One thing about the Jags in the last 20 months we have lost the unpredictable tag completely!! Everything we do is utterly predictable. When was the last time we were surprised by anything involving Partick Thistle?

    Nine? Is That All You've Got?

    George in his pomp was like the proverbial excrement off a digging implement and won several sprints at athletics meets. Did not know he had been ill but glad to hear he is now okay. I still bump into his brother occasionally and he did not live the monk like existence of his younger sibling but is still going strong and must be getting on for 90 now. We could certainly do with a few of George's goals just now. He scored a good number against the Celtic and was linked with a move to the blue part of the city at one time in his career. Thankfully for us it never happened.

    Nine? Is That All You've Got?

    Yup Ballintore Jag, I wasn't at the 10-2 game but both Thistle goals were scored by the man who made me a supporter, George Smith. He was a student teacher at Bathgate Academy and I was in the school's primary department. Eventually he discovered I was a Jags supporter and he was my hero and his dad, a local baker, took me to a few games. I bumped into George a few years ago and he looks a million dollars - never been a drinker or smoker and he is now is 82 ( I discovered that I was born on his 10th birthday relatively recently - what a coincidence!! 1st June and we share it with Bob Monkhouse, Marilyn Monroe , Pat Boone and Morgan Freeman) Should be in the Hall of Fame but I'm sure George wouldn't cope with the "refreshments" at such an event - I know he has been asked. Quite a few more goals than Dools to his credit too.

    Nine? Is That All You've Got?

    Mulguy Jag, it was 5-1 in the second leg at Firhill against St Johnstone in the quarters. What a night! Think Lambie was in the Saintees team? Remember we lost ten twice in a few months in late fifties - 10-2 at home to Hibs and 10-1 at East End Park to keep Dunfermline from being relegated. Those were the days. Round about that time too Hibs won 11-1 in a league match at Broomfield and signed the Hibs reserve goalie , Lawrie Leslie, who let in a barrowload in a relatively short period but got capped for Scotland. He was a hero of mine and went on to a very successful career at West Ham. Different times!

    Thistle vs. Morton, 29/12/18

    It's the utter consistency of us that pisses me off more than anything. We have done the same things for eighteen months under two different managers. Consider: 1) always lose at least one daft goal, 2) always pathetic with set pieces; 3) always try to go down the wings and fail miserably with crosses,4) defence always looks as if they have never been introduced to one another...... I could go on but I'm sure you get the picture. it's only a game, lads!

    Caldwell and Low update from PTFC

    Hope he signs somebody who likes getting into the opposition penalty area! That would be a change.

    Deep in the recesses of my mind I can remember Gary H playing in defence not long after he signed for us. He was AWFUL, laughably bad, almost! And then he moved to midfield and we all know how good he was for us there. Fingers crossed he can do something for us because he doesn't need to be hugely creative to be better than those trying to bluff the opposition currently.
