  1. That's what Ian McCall and his assistants are paid for. If they do half as good a job as McNamara done then we'll be heading in the right direction
  2. There probably isnt as much a difference in quality between Drumchapel and us last season to be fair. I agree that MacKinnon was a really poor signing though, as was plenty of other who flattered to deceive. The complete no-show at Gayfield in January still gives me nightmares. That was enough to stop football never mind the ensuing pandemic. The one bit of optimism I have for the forthcoming season is, we surely cant be that bad again
  3. The death of Scottish football is happening in front of our very eyes. Mothballing the league we have been consigned to will cause irreversible damage. We will effectively need to start from scratch while other teams higher up in the foot chain will benefit with increased prize money. Why cant we have a reduced capacity at Firhill. We could easily have 3000 folk adhering to distancing rules, which is as much as we will likely to see anyway. Same applies for every club in the lower leagues where its almost as if its behind closed doors with the amount of folk who attend. Surely the biggest threat still is to the players, so the restart of any football in Scotland should be uniform to all leagues
  4. No its definitely Snowdon, sure he went onto play for the mighty Bo-ness not long after, what heady days when we could watch guys like that in the famous Red an Yella :)
  5. The phrase, "the term legend gets thrown about a lot these days" has never been more applicable. Sandy Hodge a legend? That description is very generous at best never mind wholly inaccurate. Also Will Snowdon - too good for us? That in itself almost warrants the admin to get involved here and close this thread down
  6. In 2004, the rules were changed to allow ICT to be promoted and to relegate us, the cuddly toy. While we had to ensure a 10000 seater stadium had to be in place with the safety certificates all signed somewhere around March prior to us winning the Scottish Division One title as it was, ICT were allowed to ground share with 'neighbours' Aberdeen (which was a clear conflict of interest) until they could build a 6000 seater stadium. It was absolutely astonishing how we accepted it. Financially we spent a fortune to get Firhill up to scratch which effectively put as at a disadvantage on the park. Not a court in the land would have upheld the leagues decision. Theres no danger if we had taken it to court we would have lost it. We didnt want to be seen to upset the apple cart and merely surrendered to our fate. It was absolutely outrageous. If we surrender again to this, effectively the same as we did back then by getting into bed with the devil, then ye can shove yer team up yer arse. To support Thistle would be to support that corruption. Not for me. Our families 20 year continuous season tickets sale will be no more.
  7. How exactly were the working group (TWG) in any way involved in this? Is anyone in TWG directors in the three black cats? The appointment of Low as chairman is nothing to do with them. It is though of high importance that TWG respond to this urgently and update the support of the timescale to quell the disharmony. I can understand the disappointment of her involvement again, surely she must have known how unpopular this announcement would have been at a time when, we the struggling supporters are looking for any crumb of positivity at the moment. Storm Low has blown the crumbs right off the table
  8. Lets not forget the 'Miracle of Central Park' yon midweek back in 2013 that gave us a 2nd chance to go on and win the league........... Based over 30 months, I don't know how the SFA are to blame. I think your clutching at straws now. In fact laying it the blame on the steps of Hampden is usually the default stance the old firm take when their team get beat.
  9. Never mind, it might be shite the now, but remember next year, in keeping with tradition, is the year we win a major trophy.........................
  10. We almost stole an equiliser at the death and really Austin should do better with both opportunities. First time I've seen him and going by the lack of quality or even thought he's another who isn't going to help the cause
  11. Not only did he fail to sort it, he gave them extended deals
  12. We're going down. Unbelievably we have got worse. I could pick 11 pals that would give us problems and look organised. We don't have any real idea what we're doing. For professional footballers it's nothing short of embarrassing. Our defence is shambolic and their goal typical of where were at. We had 7 players in our own 6 yard box to their 4 and yet not one player within touching distance of the goalscorer. Sad times and with some of these boys on 2 year deals, I worry about the future of this football club
  13. We shouldnt have been in the position of losing the penalty. There were 3 Thistle players in vicinity of the ball pretty much unchallenged prior to the ball being played to Forrest. The CB had a clear view and run and was better placed to deal with it, for some reason Bannigan makes an unbelievable decision to deal with it and they make an erse of it. Forget blaming Fox this time, the communication between our players cost us. Bannigan is a liability
  14. Oh aye, real tough talk that. I wonder McCall will be even able to sleep the night
