Friday Fright Night? - Thistle vs Ayr

It was just as bad with McParland. I went to a Scottish League versus, I think but not sure, Irish League match at Hampden. 

Davie Wilson of Rangers was the first choice left winger for Scotland at the time but was not at his best. A good game  and McParland was in! 

The left half was Jim Baxter of Rangers. He was dreadful in that game and nearly all of his passes to McParland on the left wing were over hit and Davie couldn't get to them. 

As I had never seen Baxter pass the ball so badly I thought it was deliberate to protect his pal Wilson's Scotland place. There were quite a few comments in the press along these lines and especially about Davie getting another chance. Davie, being the gentleman he was, accepted responsibility and commented 'he felt a yard slow on the night'! I completely lost respect for Baxter after that game. 

Some time later my father, a Morton fan and a pal of Davie, told me my suspicions were correct! He  worked all his life in the newspapers  and pick up lots of bits of 'inside' information but he wouldn't tell me his source other than it came from Ibrox!! 

A blind man could have seen what Baxter was up to but not the SFA.  I suspect they knew but didn't want to take on the mighty Glasgow Rangers by dropping Wilson. 

Apologies for length of post. 

I'd heard that before too. Totally believe it.

Can't say he's not shaken things up a bit! Attack minded, good to have a couple of options on the bench too - will likely need it as don't see some of the starting XI having the legs for 90 mins in this weather.

Need a win!

Graham 2 in 125 minutes for the Jags.

He's clearly not read the script about not being a goal scorer...........................

With the possible exception of Rodden for Zanatta, probably our strongest side. Still waiting for the warm glow to kick in …

Beginning to get it now; either that or I've p1shed myself.

Graham hustling to win the free kick form which he pops it in. What we've lacked.

Not enthused with both Zanata & Cardle starting tho' not sure who should be in for one of them. Saunders not in the squad tho I suppose either full back could move inside if called on.

I thought the same when I saw the team sheet, but they have been 2 of our best players. Humble pie being consumed!

I've liked the look of Graham. He's got an in about them style and  should get goals at this level. But also if his teammates keep with him then they'll get scraps from his disrupting.

That was just a sh#te moment which sums things up for us. Let's just get a grip of this game.

How many times do we see Fox diving the wrong way at penalties? Just stand your ground and make the penalty taker work for gawds sake. Diving early means my 3 yr old could put it away!
