    Junior Mendes leaves club

    The only places I recall it being mentioned last week were by a journalist on twitter who said it was going to happen. St Mirren confirmed the move yesterday afternoon - https://www.stmirren.com/news/club/all-news/2337-junior-mendes-returns - with Thistle following suit around 10-15 minutes later. It might well have been a move that was agreed in the last few weeks but a notice period would have to be served before the move was "official", similar to any other job. ETA: Junior was on the pitch with the team on Saturday doing the pre-match and half time warm ups as normal. I'd imagine the same happened with Scott MacKenzie - a notice period would need to be done both ways and it would be tied up in legalities?

    Thistle vs. Ayr

    Not sure that's strictly true. As Shankland was under 23 when his contract expired a fee would have been due as Ayr had offered him terms,

    Who's next?

    That's not true. He handed Kenny McLean his debut mere months after being appointed(assuming a June 2010 appointment as per wikipedia is accurate). He also introduced John McGinn to first team football. A casual glance also indicates Jon McShane, Thomas Reilly, Sean Kelly and Jason Naismith were handed their debuts and opportunities to play. Granted, not every one was a success but no academy has a 100% success rate in developing players.

    According to AA's JagZone preview interview - Chris Erskine was 50/50 to play on Friday night after picking up a knock in the Queen of the South game.

    Team rebuilding

    I thought he came on as a late substitute v Cove Rangers where he made his 250th Thistle appearance? IIRC, he suffered from a back injury in pre-season, was ruled out for a bit then the team were flying when he was fit so couldn't get in the side.

    Team rebuilding

    David Rowson joined Stenhousemuir in early January on a 28 day loan. He came back to Firhill following the loan and left the Club on the same day that Jackie McNamara moved on to Dundee United - I remember he wrote a letter to the fans on ptfc.co.uk which everyone in bits.

    Hearts friendly

    Where would you play it? I think both sides have made it pretty clear they wanted it on a grass park by their venue choice. I'm not sure, but I'm probably wrong, there is a more convenient grass pitch at an SPFL stadium available to play it on that isn't undergoing pitch renovation? The one that jumps out to me is Stirling but given all their friendlies are away from home it seems like they are doing pitch renovation this summer. They could have closed doored it but then it would have meant that we'd have had no open door friendlies this year - not sure that would have gone down well?

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    The lead commentator, Alec O'Henley I think? is the lead commentator for both the "as live" Premiership games and the live Championship ones, therefore a 5pm ALBA game would be unlikely as he can't be in two places at once. Edit: Plus the Premiership game is shown "as live" at 6pm so a 5pm game would really be a nonstarter.

    Season Tickets 2018/19

    BBC Alba only have the rights for 4 Championship games IIRC. They will use two for the final of the Champ/League1 playoff so it's really only a maximum of two times that they can shift us to a later game and I don't think they did it last season. They showed Morton v St Mirren at New Year but I can't remember what the other game was. Also remember they have a "live" Premiership match every weekend so it would be far more likely to be shifted to a Sunday. The guy who does the gaelic comms does it for all the games.

    Surely when Thistle played Hampton & Richmond and Southend United in, admittedly, closed door friendlies during pre-season that would have extended the streak? Danny's scored three goals for Thistle. He scored against Dunfermline Athletic at Garscube in June 2016(closed door) and against Cirencester in June 2016 to add to his header against Shanghai Shenua.

    Sellick Away

    This season. They cut down the television money payments and re-distributed them into the general round payments. So, in essence, clubs get paid more for reaching that round rather than a massive jackpot for the "luck" of a television game.

    TV money is £30,000.

    December Fixtures Farce

    We can't bring forward the Motherwell game because they are in the Betfred Cup final... Aberdeen already have a game on the 26th against Killie.

    Close! The last ten clashes in Maryhill have seen a team win to nil(or a 0-0 draw). The last time both teams scored was in 2007 in "injury time gate" where we, somehow, blew a 2-0 lead at 90 minutes to draw 2-2. Paul Sheerin netted a penalty. We faffed the kick off and Deuchar stole a point for the Perthside side. The last time both teams scored in Maryhill is, understandably, forgettable - Thistle 1 Saints 5. The same day Ross McCabe got stood on by Dougie Imrie at New Douglas Park, causing the best to come out of the Jags support with a banner/bedsheet of support seven days later. The time before that was the epic 4-4 thriller

    Motherwell 30/9/17

    Four clubs have had three points after eight Premiership games since the playoffs were introduced in 2013 - all four went on to secure their safety at the end of 38 games. None were involved in the playoffs.
