Friday Fright Night? - Thistle vs Ayr

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!

Wonder how often, if ever, they practice with the keepers?

A soft penalty but the ref has been terrible all night..  Big improvement  in speed and attitude.

Needed all 3 points given the games we have left, better performance overall but still too many sloppy balls,however,still think we have enough talent in team  to improve and kick on ....it’s going to a horrible 3 months or so .

Was never a penalty. Don’t think I’ll ever see Fox save a penalty. Still time before the window closes to get a decent keeper in.

First half was decent with some nice stuff being played. Second half was stinking and absolutely shat the bed in the final third.

He should be shown the door if we go down.

Considering ayr have bossed us for last two seasons a draw not a disaster.

Deserved to win that. Not alot of chances for either team but we were mostly the team on the front foot. Can't really fault the players for effort. More points dropped though and that's all that matters.

Most of us may have accepted a point beforehand.

That does not excuse us getting the hard bit right (taking the lead) and then the performance being totally flattened by a non-existent penalty.

Ayr would never have scored otherwise.

Anyway, at least we looked like a football team tonight...................most of the time.

Jings, that's a weak argument. Have a look at the table. Tonight was a must win game. We failed.

Short term thinking achieves nothing. Must win game my archie.

I agree. We looked like a football team and while there were no stand outs, every player looked up for it.

If we were sitting mid table I think everyone would more or less accept that, but when you're stuck at the bottom , everything other than a win triggers a meltdown...

If you dont want Thistle to stay in this division then your argument is flawless. 

 

And your solution is mr football einstein?

Overall deserved to win it.  With that many new players always going to take a few games to gel. We will get better as the season goes on. Thought players looked up for it which is main thing. Worst thing to do is panic.

It's 26 live league matches without a win since Fake Thistle 2013.

Connah's Quay and Sr. Mirren have both been put to the sword on TV in cup-ties since then.

We're not very good at this TV thing are we?

Too many lights or interviews or what?
