    Lets fill the J.LS. vs Stranraer..

    Perhaps a matter of taste. Personally I tended to find Alan Archibald uninspiring and insipid - and of course his teams ended up turning in lots of insipid performances. I'm certainly aware he was a good player for us and has been connected with Thistle over many years, but I never really felt that a burning passion for PTFC came across. I didn't really relate to him much as a manager. If Caldwell has ego, arrogance, I don't think it would have bothered me at al if he had got good results so far. In fact, perversely I quite like his wilfully thrawn comments such as blaming refs and being "outstanding" and "controlling" games even when we've had a terrible result - which doesn't make sense but is almost endearingly bizarre.

    What do you mean by this? I'd hope PTFC would be all about winning football matches. For me, Gary Caldwell has a few more games left to aee if he can do that.

    Why not just sell him if we are getting £400K? Contracted till May 2021 apparently but his value isn't going to go up if we are in League 1. He hasn't made much of an impact this year and won't get much game time in a relegation battle. Could also be useful for a League 1 campaign but there is certainly an argument for cashing in on him now...

    That's not answering the question

    Here's a question - if Erskine had stayed on the bench and not played another minute this season, would everyone have preferred that to him leaving and freeing up a wage for another signing? For him to stay just for the joy of seeing his name in the squad?

    Winter window

    There are several sides to every story, and very little is actually known about the situation. I wouldn't expect to get away with challenging my boss at work in front of others (even if others thought I was being reasonable). I'd expect to get away with it even less if I told people outside of work and it ended up causing lots of discord among customers on social media. Mass hysteria about this now is not going to help us. Caldwell will deserve the sack if results remain as bad - not for releasing a particular player. The entire club needs to focus on avoiding relegation - including via a playoff, if this is required.

    I would not have released Erskine, but this is cuddly toy pish. The only "style" of player I want at Thistle is that which wins football matches, in any possible way.

    The Greenock Morton game clearly didn't change that effectively - we lost.
  9. Has it ever actually been mentioned at any stage that Gary Caldwell has used Powerpoint? I'm not sure where the fixation with this comes from. I think Caldwell is quoted as making "a presentation" at his interview. I can't begrudge him preparing well for his job interview and selling himself. It's the job of a selection panel to investigate all candidates and appoint the best one.

    Coulibaly - in case it gets deleted

    I don't think Coulibaly was fit, is fit or ever will be fit. Another wasted wage by - you've guessed it - Alan Archibald.

    Falkirk game

    Plenty of managers do this all the time. Arsene Wenger did it consistently through his career. Would it have been better management to publicly criticise the player he has just signed for getting sent off?

    This squad I think was always going to struggle...hence why they also struggled under the beloved Alan Archibald. McGinty and Keown was the worst centre back pairing since...Devine and Keown. Archibald signed one decent player in Craig Slater. Storer, Mutumbo, Ntambwe, Melbourne, McGinty, all duds. There simplt wasn't a decent team there. Caldwell has failed so far but huge amounts of blame for this season still belong to Alan Archibald.

    How does anybody actually know this is true? Ridiculous levels of hysteria from the Thistle support regarding all of this

    Stats Watch 2018-19

    Out if interest, does any other club in Scotland have more than one consecutive relegation in its history? Particularly from top flight to third tier? I havn't been able to find any.

    Caldwell and Low update from PTFC

    Plenty of charlatan managers have also contrived to not get relegated at this level. The target we have to meet is to finish 8th. Nothing more. Overtake a part-time Alloa side and stay ahead of what Falkirk fans describe as their worst ever team. Despite the bullshit eminating from the club, Caldwell will know this and that he is scrambling to save his career. In all likelihood it would be worse to sack him right now as it would completely disrupt the chance to bring in any players in the transfer window. He is homing in on the worst Thistle managerial record of all time, however (Gerry Collins was at a higher level). If things aren't better in the next 4-5 games maximum, he should be sacked. The Thistle support should be vocal and demonstrative in this. There has to be accountability at the club for the shambles we have been humiliated with this season. We may then only be in a position to have Doolan or another as caretaker manager to end of season, but it's another desperate step which could save us.
