    Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    Agree but big Beastie is a relatively easy hit for those of a certain age and I'm having more trouble identifying the opposition (club and player). Any ideas? Dumbarton and Dundee Utd both had banded white strips but I don't think it's either of them and at this time of night (this time of life?) I can't think of many others.

    I think the strip dates it to 75-76 or 76-77 but no idea who it is.

    Fantastic goal - one of the best I have ever seen in the flesh. I can still hear the roar of appreciation from the shed when Denis took his place for the re-start. Was there really only 2000 of us there that night?

    Ok, I blame the pokey we screen on my pretend iPad - it is Brian M. I bow to those with better eyesight and better devices than me.

    It might just be the angle, but I thought it looked more like Jonny M, even though I don't remember him ever playing as a number 3.

    McAdam, McDonald and Jamie Doyle but with Jonny Marr?

    Guesswork rather than detective work this time. Brian Whittaker defending against Morton with Dougie Somner in the background. 1978-79?

    Berwick in 1970 was one of my first away games so I have fond memories of that ground. Remembering Thistle games from those days is easy - it's remembering what I had for my tea two nights ago that's the challenge!

    Despite having been at every Thistle game there since 1970 apart from one, it took me a while to pin it down but it's Berwick. The guy scoring is Brian McClair who I very vaguely knew when he was at at Glasgow Uni while part time with Motherwell, so that dated it to early-mid 80s. The goalie does look very Hamish McAlpine-esque and Dundee United did wear Adidas kit at that time but I thought he looked too young for 80s Hamish and my memories of Tannadice didn't fit with the shed in the background. A quick Google of photos of the ground seemed to confirm this. Some more googling narrowed it down to 1983/84 season as that was McClair's first season with Celtic and the last one before CR Smith started sponsoring their tops. A trawl of his goal scoring records for that season, eliminating the impossibles, led me to http://www.thecelticwiki.com/m/page/1984-01-28%3A+Berwick+Rangers+0-4+Celtic%2C+Scottish+Cup+3rd+Rd+-+Pictures The two photos show the same general shape of the shed and the adjoining terracing, albeit from a different angle, but the clincher is that you can see the advertising hoardings with Polychrome and lithographic printing industry on them. The picture with the match report at http://www.thecelticwiki.com/m/page/1984-01-28%3A+Berwick+Rangers+0-4+Celtic%2C+Scottish+Cup+3rd+Rd is the best one of the moustachioed custodian. So it's Brian McClair scoring for Celtic in a 4-0 Scottish Cup win against Berwick Rangers, 28th Jan 1984. One other Thistle link to the game (in addition to Murdo McLeod) is that Jim Melrose also played and scored that day.

    Where did you see that BB?

    I don't doubt what Archie said but it wouldn't have been a bad thing if he had been primed to go on to say "...and we are advised that it should all be sorted within the next X weeks/months." A little bit of expectation management for your customer-base goes a long way.

    No clearance yet so it's looking like it's one for FIFA to sort out. Would be nice if Thistle gave an update with a realistic expected timeline.

    On the timescales question, Google is your friend on these occasions or, as they used to say on another site, every day is a school day. My reading of FIFA's international transfer regs is that the Egyptian FA must give clearance (officially an 'International Transfer Certificate' or ITC) within 7 days of receiving a request from the SFA unless there is an ongoing contractual dispute between the player and his former club about the termination of his contract. If there an ongoing contractual dispute then the player, the old club or the new club can raise the issue with FIFA, who have up to 60 days to issue a judgement. The SFA should have sent the ITC request last week so, in theory, if we don't get positive news this week then the worst case is it may take another couple of months to sort out. However, although I'm still wary about taking the Egyptian club's reported statements at face value, they are apparently claiming that the dispute has already been resolved. If this is the case there is no reason for the ITC not to be issued in the next few days.

    Thanks WJ, some interesting comments on P&B. Shame the video has been taken down. You don't know of anyone posting screen grabs of the documents, do you?

    I've nothing against a bit of speculation but I prefer it to at least start from the facts. Can anyone point me towards a reliable source that confirms that FIFA imposed the reported fine? All I have seen is statements in the press from a legal consultant who claims to be linked to the Egyptian club who says that they won their case at "Fifa’s Dispute Settlement Court" in April, with the result that SC would have pay a fine of $1.4 million. FIFA doesn't actually have a "Dispute Settlement Court" but it does have a "Dispute Settlement Chamber". I would expect a lawyer to know the difference, especially if he had just won a million dollar case there. FIFA publishes the decisions of its Dispute Resolution Chamber here: https://www.fifa.com/about-fifa/official-documents/governance/dispute-resolution-chamber.html The published decisions are anonymised (Player A, Club B, etc) but otherwise give detailed descriptions of the dispute, including relevant dates and contract details. None of the cases relating to the published decisions come anywhere near to the reported details of the SC case. This makes me doubt the whole FIFA fine story. Someone somewhere along the line is telling porkies.
