  1. Lol - I was just thinking exactly the same. I think the poster was called ‘clinically depressed’. Who wouldn’t be after reading the forum these days. tbf - it’s been said already but I do think some posters spend a huge amount of time debating stuff back and forward. I know that what forums are for but a lot of the board/financial stuff has been rather tedious imo. I know I started a recent thread about jlow but that soon descended into pages and pages of a handful of posters debating who can be a director and how fan ownership works. I’d like to sponsor a few of the guys just to go to a pub, maybe in springburn or Jordan hill, and talk it out...

    I’m not sure. Are you Lynne’s wee brother? If so..hello :-) I guess we could also claim to be jordanhill jags also. I agree about anonymity on these Internet forums. My own name is not exactly anonymous but if you don’t like my opinions I can blame it on my brother, or sons :-) we are all thistle fans. btw - in all this... I was only expressing a concern. I accept that some folk think that the concern relating to jacqui is purely based on her performance.

    I’ve just finished my ironing, so checking in again. I didn’t accuse specific individuals of sexism. I raised a question about whether there were elements of that in the fans responses. i am also not colin!

    Thanks - I’m nearly 49. Old enough to know better. I’ve tried to be polite throughout this thread. I appreciate you found my initial question as inflammatory. That was not my intention. I’m not going to convince you that some of the reaction and comments relating to jlow are sexist. I’m now bowing out, as I have some ironing to do.

    JJ - I think jlo’s experience might put off other women getting involved. it would be interesting to get feedback from any female posters on this forum. i must confess I don’t recall Maggie Forsyth.

    Hey - that was me. I’ve already fed back that I raised this due to a genuine concern that some of the negativity is coming from unhealthy attitudes. Many people have refuted that. That’s fair enough and I think valid reasons are cited. i didn’t post the original question to cause a stooshie, as you put it. It was raised as a genuine query. There is mixed opinion on this but I do not want the club to be seen as unwelcoming to our non-core typical fan base.

    Thanks for your feedback. I would concur that most people have challenged my opinion. I don’t think I’m obsessed but just wanted to air something that was not sitting well with me. It’s certainly triggered some debate.

    I’m not in her wee twitter group. But I also don’t know about the things you speak of. As I said - I’m just a fan who is concerned that the feedback about jacquis potential involvement is based on male prejudice. ps. Your own tone about me being in a wee twitter group is wrong and also antagonistic.

    You must be joking now. She is blamed for that too? Gerry is in with the bricks and has been at the club for a long period. Btw - I think he is an asset to the club. This is not about looking for somebody to blame. i am concerned that the experience of jacqui would put off other women getting involved at ptfc.

    Okay. I remain of the opinion that her profile has been unfairly and overly criticised. I drew the parallel with Gerry b to try and reinforce the unfairness that all the negative press stuck with jacqui. im not going to convince you that some of this was based on old fashioned male prejudice, but it does seem that a few others share my concern.

    Because you think her involvement would be a disaster?

    How else do you explain the reaction to her return. If somebody else helped broker a continued investment of a multi millionaire supporter I think they would be greeted more positively. The mere prospect of that appears to have horrified some people. i thought it was great when we had a female chair. The reaction to her from our fan base has been disappointing IMO.

    Thanks allyo - you’ve put that in a much more erudite fashion than I was managing to do.

    That’s your opinion. I’m allowed mine.

    Jj - how do you know that he wasn’t. I would expect that as part of the board, he would be part of the process?
