    Dundee 17/2/18

    Agree with the formation but I would start erskine instead of Edwards. Thought the bridge had a really good game against Celtic and we need some creativity in midfield. bring on Edwards with 25 minutes to go to use his energy and pace to hopefully punish a tiring Dundee team much like the st Johnstone game. If keown is fit again then he should start. I don’t think this is a game for Doolan. Sammon and storey should cause them problems. Save Doolan to get a hat trick against Hamilton next week.

    Sellick Away

    I when on the basis that a crowd of 30,000 each paying an average of £15 would bring in 450k. Giving thistle a nice pay check of 225k. I am not sure if the away teams share is cut in terms of paying for policing etc. But even so could still expect £200,000 Just from this game.

    Sellick Away

    The only good thing about Celtic away is the cash windfall that goes along with it. Maybe enough for the club to budget another new player with 9 days left in the window.

    Jordan Turnbull Recalled From Loan

    I have never really understood what we mean by left sided centre half? Do we mean basically he is predominantly left footed or is there a specific skill set to be the left centre half? Every team surely can’t be playing a right footed and left footed centre half duo so why necessarily do thistle need this. While it probably adds a nice balance if he is left footed surely we should sign the best centre half available to us.

    The Manager

    I am behind Archie. I think a change in manager would maybe give us a brief period of improvement but nothing long lasting. Plus who would we get? Unlikely we will be bringing in someone with EPL experience like county and killie. His signings this season have actually been quite good. Keown - we all wanted him and got him Storey - is a good signing and better than what we have had behind doolan for years. Spiral - guy is out top scorer. He has had a few off games but generally a good signing. McGinn - has been player of the season since his arrival. Sure there are a couple of poor signings but generally they have been good. It’s the injuries that have really hit us and we need osman and booth back ASAP. Don’t get me wrong we need to pick up points in the coming home games or we will really be adrift. Hopefully in the January break we can get a few players back to help out the team.

    Tynecastle: Final Safety Checks At 0800

    Considering all the drama with this fixture, hearts first game at refurbished ground, unsure if it will even go ahead, delayed kick off then a point is a good result away from home. It will be a tough season but kille, Dundee and Hamilton will be in this with us and once we get back some injured players I have faith we have the squad to pull away.

    Tuesday Night.

    Barton was shocking. First touch has been poor all season. His passing always seems to be short and generally looks to be quite lazy at times. Really needs to be dropped. A few games on the bench hopefully buck up his ideas.

    Barton is having a howler. Can hardly complete a pass at the moment.

    That was my point he changed to a four at the back since half time. Should have stayed with the three. Before the goal that is

    Why has Archie changed the formation? We are getting ripped apart since half time

    New Players...

    If we got a CB and striker this week I would be pretty chuffed. I am not too worried about an RB. Elliot seems to be really growing into the role and if muzzy comes back by end of September that would be great. Would love to get in an attacking midfielder. A Martin Hardie type of player but that would be difficult to find I imagine.

    New Players...

    Probably not as good as booth defensively (not much in it though) but a lot better going forward assuming he performs like he did in his last season with us. Would be happy to see him return but as always I trust Archie's judgement in these matters

    Liam Lindsey's (Relative) Value?

    Absolute joke if it's £350k. Lindsay has two years left on his deal and the only player outside the top two to make team of the year. I would expect £500k then add ons at the very least. Especially considering how poorly how thistle players have done down south we should be taking as much transfer fee as possible with the only add on being a percentage of any future transfers

    New Players...

    Don't think we need a striker to bang in double figures (although it would be nice). If Doolan is still firing in 10-15 goals a season what you are looking for is a striker to score 7-9 goals. Lyle Taylor is the only one that has come close to that in recent seasons while azeez and pogba have simply not offered anything in the goal scoring front. You have got to hope nisbet will make the step up this year too

    While I like the idea of a top league of 18 the problem would come from the new formed championship where there would be a considerably drop off in size of clubs apart from St Mirren, Raith, Ayr and Livi (Maybe). The rest of the clubs are part time and have very small fanbases . This may not be a bad thing but I just cant see teams like Dumbarton or Alloa competing in the top division any time soon. The premiership would though be very strong and certainly very interesting if you promoted the top 6 sides from the championship to the top tier. Lots of clubs similar in size with ourselves that have generally good away supports and are good away days also. I think if we did go 18 team top league that 2 up 2 down system should be employed with 3rd bottom playing 3rd top final a final spot in the league. I assume for the 2nd tier of 18 that we would have to get rid of a few teams or expand the lowland/highland leagues to accommodate these teams with a decent pr0motion relegation set up to stop the league stagnating.
