  1. Team rebuilding

    On paper that’s a hell of a signing On paper we have a fantastic attacking line up with goals aplenty. Not been this excited since we announced Storey & Spittal. Archie appears to have been given most of the tools to do his job (Gain promotion) it’s in his hands now. Hell of an excited over this player
  2. Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo New Signing

    We need our attacking midfielders to contribute to our goals tally, and they are. We only have 1 recognized striker in Doolan, he needs a backup, a challenge, he operates better when he’s competing for his place
  3. In England a cordon is set up prior to reaching the turnstiles where your searched, Firhill is a doddle for doing that (5 streets to set up), not one club speaks up about it, the police do nothing about it, the authorities and SFA SPFL do and say nothing, so the problem grows, and the home supports dwindle for these games, but not just us every club outside Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts see the Home supporters stay away for these games as they know their club will capitulate on and off the park to the OF, hence the fans and officials of the OF ride roughshod over the rest of Scottish football and will continue to until a couple of brave clubs say NO. Vote against them, limit their fans, refuse their stewards (who are part of the problem), issue statements complaining about their behavior, ensure fans are refused entry to home ends, refused entry when breaking conditions on tickets, are banned when throwing flares, breaking seats etc. Its our club our ground but we put them 1st every time over our own fans
  4. The problem is the Celtic (& Rangers) support do this week in week out at every away game they attend. Our club (like every other) sell the home fans out to maximize the profit and won’t speak up for fear of antagonizing the cash stream. Celtic never filled their end, yet our core home support drops for these games, how many of those that don’t attend fail to reappear at next home game, or fail to renew their ST? I honestly believe us selling out has a bigger impact on our home support than just one game. Add to that the clean up, stewarding, and police costs, and the excess profit can’t be great, but we like every other club accept their behavior as it brings some extra cash

    I thought he was a left winger. Welcome to Firhill
  6. Thistle vs Falkirk - Relegation Decider?

    It’ll return, but scared to jinx us by listening in to the next game. Having watched the highlights my biggest question is why don’t we try to attack every week? We’re definitely at our best when we run at teams, we have guys capable but normally (Through tactics, or fear) we don’t, hence we’re in the league we are in. Squiddy was unplayable at times, delighted for him he’s a real Thistle man.

    I had desert as well
  8. Thistle vs Falkirk - Relegation Decider?

    By all accounts we played well, and had speed and attacked, good to score twice and very important 3 points. Seems Archie got the tactics right, so well done on that too. When I state “ by all accounts “ today was the first time since pre-Jagszone when the Nomad show was running that I’ve either not been at the game or tuned in to Shuggie’s show or Jagszone regardless where I was in the world, at 2pm (Norway time) I just couldn’t be bothered, appetite for the game had gone so I went for lunch and drinks and never checked phone till after 6, pleasantly surprised with result and comments. Being superstitious I’ll have to leave the commentary offfor next game too. Lets not get carried away though, one battle does not win a war, but can point us in that direction. Onwards to Tuesday

  10. Thistle vs Falkirk - Relegation Decider?

    Wouldn’t class tomorrow as a relegation decider, but we’re in danger of getting stuck in a losing rut (if not already). A win and good performance will do wonders for morale, a win and poor performance will buy some time to work on the performance. Poor performance and defeat, and the pressure mounts, plus the anger and frustration from the fans. Not sure what team or tactics (Hopefully a change from the monotonous side ball, big punt to no-one) for tomorrow, we really need some speed and (forward) movement, be interesting to see if we can field a full subs bench, not heard of anyone injured.

    Very good player, but he’s been plagued by injuries , knee surgery last January (2017) and only played 15 times last season
  12. Archie out - Now or Never.

    Entertainment, atmosphere different to what you get in house, but like the football if restaurant is consistently poor you stop going to it
