  1. I’d only keep Cardle if he was a squad player, wouldn’t want him getting as many starts as he has this season. Zanatta is still under contract until 2021. He’s also done well at this level before and now that we’ve got a capable manager hopefully he’ll be able to get more out of him. Maybe harsh on Austin but I thought he’s been fit for ages now and is hardly getting a sniff? See how he does until the end of the season but I don’t have high hopes.
  2. Quite happy with all of the names linked, particularly Rudden and Graham - think they’d make a decent partnership. McCart has been great for Inverness CT by all accounts, so I’m hoping we get that one done for the summer. Not hopeful of getting Forrest, given other teams (including a Premiership side) are in the hunt. But impressed by what McCall’s trying to do. Of those out of contract/on loan, I’d look to... Keep: O’Ware and Cole. Bin: Robson, McGinty, Saunders, Harkins, Austin, Miller, Jones. Undecided: Slater, Cardle, MacKinnon. Of those with a contract, if we could also get rid of Mansell then I would.
  3. Cardle, Cole, Miller and Penrice (first half) were good. Montrose were shit.
  4. 1. Dundee United 2. Inverness CT 3. Dundee 4. Thistle 5. Ayr United 6. Dunfermline 7. Morton 8. Queen of the South 9. Arbroath 10. Alloa
  5. Don’t see him changing the formation today. So I’d go with: Sneddon Williamson Saunders O’Ware McGinty Robson Penrice Bannigan Cardle Miller Jones Subs: Fox, Sena, Palmer, Slater, Gordon, De Vita, Mansell.
  6. How did Gordon (and Palmer) do tonight? Couldn’t make it but was there on Saturday and thought Bannigan was very good while Gordon was average.
  7. Great to start the season with a win. I felt we controlled large portions of the match and our back 3 looked solid. Their goalkeeper stopped it being 2 or 3-0 and their number 7 was lively. Cardle stood out as being very positive on the ball, looking to make things happen, while everyone else was either okay (Gordon, Penrice, Mansell) or good (the rest). Need to see more of him to be sure but reckon Palmer could be a great signing.
  8. Would prefer to sign Fox, who is a good goalkeeper, than sign a lesser goalkeeper just to keep Sneddon happy as the undisputed number one. Now we’ve got two goalkeepers who are good enough to start - let’s see who earns the gloves.
  9. Ideally 1 goalkeeper, 1 central defender, 1 defensive midfielder, and 3-4 attacking players.
  10. Graeme McGarry of the Evening Times on Twitter: "Cammy Bell departs Partick Thistle by mutual consent in the least surprising news of the summer. May be movement soon in regards to a striker coming into Firhill too." About Mansell: "He's certainly one that is a real possibility. "
  11. Think this is the first and only time I’ve ever been even slightly ITK. It’s not particularly juicy but: Boyd is 100% not joining Ayr United, and has already been offered new terms at Kilmarnock but wants to see who the new manager will be and whether the new man wants him. We are an option.
  12. Steve Marsella - now chief scout at Kilmarnock apparently.
  13. See someone on P&B is saying Queen’s Park are playing their games at Airdrie’s ground, so not a trip to Hampden for us then.
