    Maybe for some, but I also think putting all criticism of her down to misogyny isn’t credible. My main criticism of her was the empty rhetoric that seemed to perpetuate every one of her public statements and which seemed to infuse all of our club statements / communications as a result. While to be expected from a PR person, I found it completely infuriating and felt it hinted at taking fans for mugs. Those transparent PR manoeuvrings seem to have continued even now she’s not Chair. That’s not to say the new owners will be perfect - we simply don’t know enough at this point.

    In what sense is it clear that Jacqui Low is now a passionate Thistle fan? Because she was at the game on Friday night (and happily some of her fan club on Twitter tweeted about it?). Any ongoing desire to be involved in the club will come from a mixture of ego and resentment at being ousted - I am absolutely not buying any narrative painting her as a diehard Jags fan.

    Except they wouldn’t have had access to the club’s detailed accounts. If (and it’s just ‘if’) we are gubbed financially it isn’t the fault of the guys who have been in charge for three weeks, and nor is it the fault of the guys who aren’t even in charge yet - let’s be quite clear about that.

    Is it possible to think simultaneously think that women should be involved in running and leading football clubs, but also think Jacqui Low was absolutely hopeless and completely full of pish?

    Alloa Away (championship opener)

    He’s played the overwhelming majority of his games for us at left back - not buying the notion that he’s been in anyway mismanaged. I don’t think Caldwell has prevented him from venturing up the park, so much as Penrice’s lack of pace and mobility has prevented him. He’s one of the most overrated players in the team and Robson has offered significantly more than him so far this season.

    If there’s something wrong financially it won’t be the fault of the new board who have been in charge for a couple of weeks. It’ll be the fault of those that have just been papped off the board (but who I am sure are continuing to feed stories to some chosen fans to undermine the process that’s now underway).

    I don’t. I said “might be”. Presumably if there’s no team bus then it’s for cost reasons, and not because the new board just don’t like buses.

    Or maybe the previous board sanctioning flying the whole squad plus a trialist over to La Manga is exactly the reason why our finances might be in crap shape? Alloa is 40 minutes away and a number of our players live on the east coast anyway. No idea whether we had a team bus today or not but if we didn’t then I’ve got absolutely no problem with that.

    October? Really?

    That was absolutely brutal. No discernible game plan, and a formation that clearly wasn’t working about 15 minutes into the game but wasn’t changed until deep into the second half. This is all on Caldwell now. His team and his tactics. But based on today and the League Cup performances there’s zero chance we will be troubling the top of the table.

    Why would FIFA supervise a medical?

    Queens park game at Airdrie

    To be fair, the ball wasn’t moving that slowly when our centre backs were hoofing it up the park every chance they got. There wasn’t a great deal of evidence of the possession-based, attractive style of football that Caldwell professes to believe in.

    Queens park game at Airdrie

    Surprised to see people pleased with Miller and Palmer. Miller took his goal well but seems to play most of the game on the half way line - leaving nobody up front. And Palmer was invisible for the majority of the game. A win is indeed a win, but it was a win against a League Two side who were very poor. Enormous improvements needed - and a number of quality signings - if we want to challenge this year.

    That’s an excellent statement. Good to see.

    Given we have been signing players as negotiations have been ongoing then that seems unlikely. It does amuse me though, that people seem more concerned about signing a striker than about the long-term future and ownership of the club.
