  1. My first post on this thread and probably the easiest one to solve, but since today would've been Robert's 39th birthday i thought this was a good time to post this picture. This current Jag came along with some of his then teammates in February 2016, to watch and take part in a training session with Robert's wheelchair football team.

  3. I was at the 1958 final - the first 'big game' I attended - so was roo young to appreciate how good hearts were. Led by Dave Mackay, i can remember my father raving about them. They must have been considering thistle boasted three 1954 world cup players in Jimmy Davidson, Davie Mathers and my first hero, Johnny McKenzie .

  4. I've still got a couple of t-shirts and polos from the Greaves/Puma era of some (maybe 10-12?) years ago. On a few occasions when I've worn them (in Japan) I've been asked if I'm German! Anyway, the quality is still brilliant, even after many washes (well, at least one or two). I enjoy occasionally wearing one or another when visiting a Puma-wear shop downtown, as the staff's eyes light up in surprise as they've never seen such Puma attire before. On another note: I've been invited to a Belgian ex-pat party in a couple of weeks, and the dress guidelines are "some red, yellow and black." I can't wait!

  10. After several loan spells hopefully he settles quickly at Firhill. Pleased with Doolan’s first 3 signings of the close season. Indeed, when you look at his last 5 signings this year (McBeth, OReilly, Crawford, Turner, Chalmers), it’s an indication that Doolan may be developing an impressive “eye for a player”, following this time last year when timelines and budgets were a little compromised.

  11. Looks like the honour of starting the first competitive match thread of the season goes to me Not going to do the who should start, formation stuff as there are others who are better equipped to do that (or so they think). Just a few practicalities for tomorrow. The turnstiles will be staffed so there will be someone there to scan your ticket or code but might add a bit of time on so take that in to consideration. The Alan Rough suite is also open as well as the Aitken suite before the match. There will be a minutes applause before the game to remember all the Jags we have lost during 23/24 season and the summer. The match is being streamed and this includes those in the UK & Ireland. https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/supporters-bars-on-saturday/ https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/partick-thistle-v-montrose-minutes-applause/ https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/partick-thistle-v-montrose-manually-operated-turnstiles/ https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-news/montrose-match-available-to-stream-worldwide/

  12. More positives than negatives for me yesterday. We were really on the front foot and should have had a few goals before Milne got beat then the Mo player set up their forward for a decent finish. Heads didn't drop and we got level before half-time. Second half we kept at it and went ahead. Then a few changes and Montrose produced another decent goal with Gardyne taking Ashcroft out of the play to setup their young sub for an accomplished finish. Kept going and got a winner we deserved overall. Turner was very good for me and Milne and Fitzpatrick weren't far behind. Ashcroft looks like he'd win a world championship at head tennis and was involved for the winner knocking on a another good header from Milne on the other side of the 6 yard box. He is maybe on the slow side but will win most duels in the air. Chalmers looked quite classy and like Fitzy had licence to drift inside and have a dig when the opportunity arrived. Subtle changes evident possibly due to the change of personnel certainly on the right hand side. Mackay didn't do too much on his debut but wasn't far away and will get more into things as the season progresses. We certainly have some great presence now at set-pieces with Muirhead, Graham, Milne, O'Reilly and Ashcroft all imposing figures for this division. Once Kyle gets into the swing of his set-pieces we could really profit from an area that was lacking last season. TL; DR Early days but a lot more positives than negatives for me.

  13. The Jags will embark on their 79th League Cup campaign this Saturday, but it's almost 50 years since we so much as made the semi finals in 1975, groan. The 1950s was a remarkable decade for Partick Thistle as the club competed consistently at the highest level of the Scottish game. Our latest Partickle explores the remarkable story of three league cup finals in five years... 3 League Cup Finals In 5 Years →

  17. Originally published in the forum 10 years ago and now, on the anniversary of the win, re-published as our latest 'Partickle' with new photies and whatnot... On the 30th June 1945, Partick Thistle won the second of the three major trophies to land in the cabinet at Firhill Road - The Summer Cup. It’s the one that’s virtually forgotten about – mainly due to the fact that it was a short-lived wartime competition which, unlike the Scottish Cup and the League Cup, is now firmly out of sight and out of mind. However, it was regarded nationally as a significant achievement for the Jags at the time, and it should naturally follow that it remains so in the 21st Century. This is the story of six consecutive Saturdays in the summer of 1945. The war in Europe was over and – for the faithful in red ‘n’ yellow – Thistle did their very best to paint over the grey… The Road To Hampden 1945 →

  22. A few random thoughts: Playing Ayr United away on Burns Night. Time for some banter with Tam O’Shanter. As ever, 4 games a season against such a narrow range of central belt opponents is an unappetising prospect. No real opportunity to enjoy the beauty and diversity of Scotland’s landscape and just to see a few different teams. Morton at home is a good opening fixture. This is our most feisty rivalry these days for a variety of reasons, so should draw the crowds. I am reminded of the 2 opening games of the 2012-2013 season. Lightning start against Falkirk. Then a visit to Fife to dig out a vital win against Dunfermline who at that point looked like our main promotion rivals. Raith Rovers are the equivalent this time round.

  24. I'm really getting a dose of the dreaded optimism about the coming season 😂 The recruitment has really been top-notch so far in my opinion. Maybe a gk, a rb and another striking option and we are good to go.

  27. I don't doubt we're looking for another central defender, but I like to think this will be Wasiri's season. I think there were signs he could mature and become a regular starter.

  31. In the 1950's, and maybe into the 60's, Rugby Park was reckoned to have one of the best playing surfaces in Scotland, and that was often attributed to the sheep which was free to graze on the pitch, although not on matchdays! THAT IS TRUE! (Ewe couldnae make it up). As far as it turning up on a matchday, obviously the QR code ticketing system must have been faulty that day!

  33. Think too it might be Rugby Park. Definite Neil Duffy (10). As the "11" isn't Davie McP my guess would be Jim Fleming? Definitely Tommy Eweing in the foreground.

  34. If you want to be part of July's draw you need to purchase your entries by midnight on the 16th. It is a bit different from the Centenary Fund in that you can buy entries just for July if you want (don't select Auto Renew) then miss out August and buy entries again in September. If you want to have for example 4 entries each month when you sign up select Auto Renewal. However if you think "I feel lucky this month" you can add another few entries on top of that (again don't select auto renewal when doing so). Hope that helps.

  38. It's slightly disappointing to read that the attendance for our victory final was the lowest in the Summer Cup competition's history. Wasn't the attendance also a record low for the Scottish Cup Final victory match in 1921? I know that there were particular circumstances each time, but the unfortunate records stand, and the circumstances will probably not be taken into account whenever data tables etc. get produced. I often think that Thistle are blessed and cursed at the same time!

  39. That was a fantastic read. I love some of the match reports with their word plays and alliterations. You just do not get lively and evocative expressions like "flannel footed finishing" in the bland prose that passes for match analysis these days.

  44. Hopefully ST sales will be every bit as healthy as last season. Maybe even surpass it. I would tho' expect sales to be less rushed. Last season was like a call to arms re the financial situation particularly our cashflow. I'm sure a lot of fans purchased earlier than what normally would suit them.

  45. Agree and I'm hopeful Wasiri will qualify for that list too. Of the five you mention only Luke lacks experience and only Crawford is the wrong side of 30. So there's a kinda "we know what they can do and still young enough to even do better" about these signings. My only slight worry about the squad (as it stands) is the overall age. MacKenzie, Diack & Stanway on the plus side, while we've double that in their thirties. And we've still some key positions to fill or to cover. Hopefully we can do that and still bring down or at least not increase average age of squad.

  46. Ewe are definitely more correct in terms of timeline. My suggestion of Stuart Baaaannigan would be historically inaccurate.
