    the sainted denis mcquade missed many such sitters amidst his innumerable 'goal of the season' contenders

    Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    square goalposts...old floodlights...tenements...a packed terracing...many thanks for wonderfully evocative picture of a bygone age. truly was 'firhill for thrills' in those days of my youth.

    Ryan Williamson signs

    Was at Starks park with QoS supporting friend last night; JC was interviewed on the pitch at half-time when he was very, very complimentary about thistle manager and players. Stressed how much he had enjoyed himself at firhill. Definitely sounded as though he wanted to extend his stay among us

    A New Direction?

    The reporter was quoting Caldwell directly. my Fleet Street days are long over...

    A New Direction?

    The quotation marks would suggest the words came out of caldwell's mouth. yes, reporters have been known to adjust the facts for all manner of reasons but tampering with direct quotes is a dangerous tactic

    A New Direction?

    in one interview Caldwell says signing Boyd and Miller would be a 'no brainer''; in his next foray into print he claims kris Doolan was ushered out because he wants to 'build a team for the future'. one of those statements is surely erroneous

    A New Direction?

    harkins and boyd in the same team? i don't know about what 'new direction' we will be taking but i have a depressing notion of what pace that 'new direction' will be played at

    Who's picking the team?

    why doesn't he ask the players to put the name of their preferred manager next season in sealed envelopes?

    Caldwell’s Massive 7 Days

    I, too, am 60 plus years and I, too, wil not be renewing. The last 20-odd months have been far too depressing...

    With The Jags in Sweden 1972

    many, MANY thanks, ccjag; just got round to watching your oscar-deserving documentary (just HOW good was denis mcquade?). 'tis quite an emotional experience watching the boys of '71 (and the youthful davie mcp) in action one year on from their hampden heroics. i know stockholm well and and quite understand why the memories you garnered have survived nigh on half a century.

    Can not remember my first game but the first BIG match was the 1958 league cup final (our third final in six seasons!) in which we were thumped 5-1 by a brilliant hearts' side. Fortunately, I have a happier league cup final memory to draw upon......
