Academy

Recommended Posts

When one looks at Falkirk who decided to abandon their youth academy as they said continuing it would ruin them and have posted a near £700k loss for the period to 31/05/19 and now have no players coming through or will generate transfer fees/sell ons it is excellent we will continue trying to develop our own players.

I have heard it said we should not focus on youth development and instead scout young players from other clubs. The question I always have with that is what if other clubs stop their youth development - where will we find these guys?

Personally I don’t think it’s either or but working on multiple fronts 

- developing youth through our academy

- scouting young players from other clubs 

- recruiting from other sources

I can take a joke the same as anybody else, but if you look at their posts on this thread and other threads  imo they could start an argument in a empty house.

And these are the kind of people who might run the club. God help Partick Thistle.

You know how after a particularly boring game of football you hear folk say, "Jesus, they would get football stopped..."

We'll, that's what this forum is becoming.

And, yes, freedom of speech and don't read it if you don't want to, but the last point is the nub of it, isn't it? I don't want to read petty bickering between guys who take every opportunity to score points off each other without illuminating any worthwhile insights into the club and what's going on.

If this was the old days and this was going on next to me on the terraces, I'd just move away. The modern equivalent, I suppose, is just not coming on here. I suspect I'm not the only one who feels that way.

So, gonnae give it a rest, eh, guys? It's boring as ****.

Thanks. A sarcastic, sanctimonious response.

I give up.

The response was merited. Trying to tell folk what to do or say is not clever. Comes across as arrogance.

Don't give up Firhillista, 99% of the people on this forum are in complete agreement with your thoughts and views. 

Unfortunately you will encounter that 1% who generally lower the tone and basically talk through their back passage or come up with some sort of snide comment to any sort of constructive criticism of the forum.

Once you know who they are, just press the ignore button …. works for me.

Great news going forward. I just hope we can develop the players with a bit of steel about them as well as being technically gifted. 

Like a lot of things the fans will have to show a little patience but I'm delighted with this news.

Nice boost for The PTFC Women team as well. They seem to be doing relatively better than the first eleven over recent seasons...
