    I agree. That’s why I am always curious about season tickets. It’s an excellent measure of the health of the team. Obviously a promotion or relegation will influence it however most clubs have a ingrained support cultivated over generations. Many on this forum have been life long fans. Queens Park are doing their thing and it will be interesting to see how things shake up when they get their stadium in order. I wish them well. We have to get our own house in order starting with ownership. It could be a very bright future.
  3. We cannot control what Queens Park do, it is up to those in charge to make sure Partick Thistle is performing to its maximum on and off the pitch. Soon we will have new owners with their "fan centric" plan so we will need to see what that brings.

    They may be old (9 more years than us) but I wouldn't argue that they have a more illustrious history than ours - in the 1890s maybe. Their fanbase won't grow significantly, to match the size of ours. They are getting by by being bankrolled currently.
  6. And how does that invalidate my point?

    Calm down FFS. They have about 300 fans, havn't won a major trophy since the 1890s. They aren't going to magic up fans from somewhere in Glasgow. At worst we have a diehard fan base of 2000-3000, which is 5-10x theirs. Results are going to be more even from now on, simply because there is currently a lot of money behind them.

    Yes this. QP are ambitious and they showed that today. We are stuck in the doldrums trying to play the same kind of football that cost us dear last season (that we blamed on the pitch). On paper this year we have a better squad. But do we have a manager capable of getting the best out of them? No.

    We didn't get promoted to the SPL for another 7 years after Peterhead

    Outmuscled and outfought by a hungrier team. That's the first & last time I'll start a match thread

    someone on forum a while back (may have been @Garscube Road End 2) touched upon how quickly QP may overtake us. Seems to be happening already. A new manager and ideas needed.
  12. The board don’t pick the team or set the tactics. That goes down to the management team. What the board are guilty of is failing to acknowledge an manager living in the past and taking the necessary action. This team can play much better but only rarely do. edit to add …. 1 league win in last 6 !
  13. Agree completely. The club from the board to the management team is just rank rotten in my opinion. Nepotism at every single level.

    I share your concern… and the current shenanigans over the transfer of Colin Weir’s shares isn’t going to help

    Totally agree @Yellow & Redneck
  16. My worry always was that QP have the resources, ambition, and organisation to become Glasgow's 3rd club. Heaven knows they have a far more illustrious history and tradition than we can ever hope for. Now, that reality really could come to pass. I've tried to give McCall the benefit of the doubt, but unfortunately he's part of the problem. An absolute dinosaur who doesn't seem to realise that football has moved on a lot since 2005. The squad is talented one - it needs someone to get the best out of them.
  17. It was really busy today. Lots of hope at the start of the game and folks out for a good day in the sunshine. Wish I had stayed at home.

    Simple but effective. Any thoughts @javeajag ?

    Ooft that is quite a scoreline at the moment Martin. Definitely work to be done by Ten Hag

    Just as a comparison, Mitchell has lost on average just under 2 goals per game, Sneddon 0.5. I know it is a simple comparison.

    GRE2 - I was definitely just referring to on the park - and results at that shenanigans off the park are just sad.

    Is there some kind of groupthink affecting this set of managers? I've forgotten how many times we've played Hamilton Accies on plastic in the past, but I certainly haven't forgotten seeing at New Douglas Park how a team has to play on plastic - keeping the ball moving between players and, when out of possession, not allowing the opposition any time to dwell on the ball. What does our lot do? Pick the slowest player we have, Graham, to lead the line and leave the fastest players, Tiffoney and Weston, on the bench. All of Stevie Lawless' skills won't count for much if he's abandoned by his teammates to be bullied off the ball by bigger, stronger players. Then the defence seemed to stand off all the time in the box and on the wings, allowing the QP players to send the ball into our penalty area. The substitutes were effective but - typical of McCall - much too late. Some other traits seem to be returning, too, such as throwing in to the opposition. Although Mitchell couldn't be blamed for today's performance, after last week's farce he should have ceded his position to Sneddon - just to make clear that failure has consequences.

    Seriously concerned about that… we might have a good squad on paper but if we can’t organise them…. Hopefully it’s a case of some of the new guys getting up to speed but we should have enough about us not to get rolled over by QP
  26. Could be worse - we could be Manchester United!
