  1. Kids Go Free Supersized

    B-Boys, thanks for highlighting this issue, my reaction was along similar lines. Sadly your well expressed attempt to question the morality of the initiative was pretty much shot down in flames by the mob...…..interesting to see how the counter-argument is almost always framed in terms of.....aye but what about this or what about that or interference from the (so-called) nanny state. Yes, Scottish football does prostitute itself to the bookies and drinks companies but the crucial element here is that it's all about an arrangement directed specifically at the hearts and minds of impressionable kids. I suppose it comes down to what you aspire for the country although how you define country is another question and at the risk of another flegs debate......
  2. Archie out - Now or Never.

    Starting too calm down a wee bit but still really hacked off. The most positive outlook is that it's just day 1 in the league, it surely can't get worse, there will be a generous pay-day against the sellick and some fantastic new additions are imminent...… However that might only be happening in a parallel universe.
  3. JUST IN

    With respect was the appointment of our new Chief Executive just another illustration of the perceived old pals arrangement and therefore by your argument he is part of the problem?
  4. I was for giving Archie a chance right up to the Livi double header and he blew it and then the club took the easy/ cheap option to continue with the same management team, now we're easily beaten twice in a week by a team that was 2 leagues below us last season. How many were thinking about renewing/buying a season ticket this coming week?.....might be that the club will be also be regretting not including one of the league cup games on the season ticket. The only positives from today were the pre-match drinks and the old-fashioned character of Somerset Park. Brilliant turn-out from the Thistle support, circa 1000?
  5. Anyone know who's going to win the World Cup?

    Vladimir Putin
  6. David Beattie stands down

    The new chair person has an interesting political background... http://powerbase.info/index.php/Jacqui_Low
  7. New Management

    It's when a club chairman goes public about "agreeing a style of play" with a manager, it doesn't fill me with confidence. It's not quite Romavov and Hearts but......
  8. Club Statement Archie

    As stated above, Archie will pretty much have to hit the ground running. I respect but remain unconvinced by the arguments made by the "Archie stay" camp and the Board, nevertheless I wish Alan all the best and hope he turns it around. This is time for all the supporters to put arguments aside. What do people make on this aspect of the statement... "We have also agreed that we must return to playing football like Partick Thistle – we can’t be anyone else" I'm not at all sure what Beattie has in mind here.
  9. New Management

    Fair enough but what industry can afford to ignore it's customer base. In some countries the workers do elect the management or at least have a strong representation on the mgt board, Germany for example seems to do reasonably well economically.
  10. New Management

    In what respect?
  11. New Management

    I was all for giving Archie this season to see if we could retain a place in the top league but it's not worked and like some relationships they run their course. That said, it's a bit unseemly to be banding about names while the guy is still in the job. The Board surely have to take account the feelings of the fans. From the various threads It does seem like the consensus ( between 2/3 and 3/4?) of posters want a change in management. Will the Board be reading these posts and will that influence their decision? Would it be an idea to have a poll with a vote along the lines of...…..The Board should... 1 Look now to recruit a new management team 2 Give Archie a few months and then review the situation 3 Give Archie a season
  12. Livingston 2nd leg

    I have to say that despite all the gloom there's been some fine posts not least this one from Lambies Lost Doo, captures a lot of my thoughts on a difficult Monday. The last paragraph is quite inspiring. Also. thankfully, the discussions generally have been measured.... so far. This feels worse than the play-off defeat 20+ years at Tannadice. Whatever we think of them Dundee Utd had a good team, they are a club with a European pedigree and have a large support. Compare and contrast with Livi…….. I have to sadly agree that Archie has to move on, a really decent and likable bloke but time for a new chapter for Thistle.
  13. New Signing

    Hopefully it will be soon be a case of Mustapha drink to celebrate a win rather than Mustapha drink after watching the lad play. I'll get my coat...
  14. Just In Falkirk Horror

    jlsa I agree with your points, I'm not defending Stevenson or the management. When it's a small crowd like last night the shouts must be heard by the players and I don't see it motivating them to up their game. Also,some credit to the club on the pricing and hospitality deal for last night.
  15. Just In Falkirk Horror

    That was grim, the knackered PA, the idiot in the NS shouting at Stevenson "you fat useless barsteward" , being beaten by a team that included Kerr and Baird, Falkirk time wasting- now rife n the game. Baird's smug coupon at the corner kick, humphy wee fecker. And it starting pissing with rain at the end...Hopefully just a low point in the season. Grrrrrr
