Freddie is a top bloke; the measure of a true professional is someone who still takes an interest in Thistle even when he has moved on. A gentleman.

Still struggling AJ, but I feel embarrassed to say that when you see what Rab is going through. Fingers crossed for a much better 2017 for all the Watson family.

Robert passed away this morning at 4 -50 this morning.He was 31.

 

Desperately sorry to hear this and my thoughts are with you and the rest of the family.

 

What an inspiration Rab was and what an inspiration you are too.

I chatted with Robert on Facebook a few times, strangely enough never about Thistle, but I can't say that I really knew him. He was a familiar face though. In our Championship winning season he and his dad seemed to appear on the videos of every goal we scored in front stand of the North Stand that season. For that reason alone he will forever form part of the backdrop to that wonderful season.

 

One of the things I love about Thistle is that we are a big enough club to carry a reasonable support but still small and tight knit enough for their to be a sense of family. We often don't know people away from Firhill but we share a bond with them all the same and we note their absence when we don't see them at games. It's dreadfully sad when we lose one of our Thistle family and I send much love to Robert's family and friends at this time. As is clear from this thread he will be much missed.
