    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.

    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.

    Harkins

    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.

    Harkins

    I'm inclined to believe the sincerity of the smile on Mr Harkins' face during his interview. Happy to be back. I remember how he was for us and there is still a player there at this level. Now for a couple of central defenders and somebody to put the ball in the net!

    Ross County 22/12/18

    I am lost in admiration for what Livi have achieved so far with virtually no supporters and no money. Never in our recent time in the top league did we EVER look like achieving the sort of results they have been getting. Drawing with the Champions, beating the Ibrox lot, drawing at Tynecastle and then murdering the happy Hearts at the Tony Macaroni, beating Hibs then getting a draw at Easter Road. if we had got near some of THAT in recent seasons we would have been, as supporters, absolutely bursting with pride. Then it's down to this season and we are a soft shambles; guaranteed to give away ridiculously poor goals and failing to score or even get into the opposition box game after game after game.... I despair!

    Dundee Utd v Ayr

    Just LOVED watching one of the media's darlings getting absolutely horsed. Delighted for Ian Mac.

    Paratroopers training squad

    See the Record managed to caption us as "Patrick" Thistle at one point and that Stuart "Brannigan" is one of our players! Ah ,well if it was Celeriac playing in the east end of our city captained by Scott Bowen I suppose it would be headline news for three weeks. We are small and should remember our place!

    Gary Caldwell confirmation

    Oh dear! That Chesterfield forum makes some grim reading. Let's just keep our fingers crossed fellow Jaggies.

    What a state the playing side of our club seems to be in. It's all very sad and we need somebody to lift it pronto.
