    I know a lot will disagree because of the way his tenure as manager ended, but for me it is Archibald. He got us promoted, was unbeaten in the league after he took over. Kept us in the Premier league for 5 seasons and finished 6th, our highest league position for over 35 years. I know it all went wrong the last season and a bit, but i don't think that should detract from what he achieved before that.

    As we approach Remembrance Day 2021, we pay our respects... In 1914 and 1939, when the nation needed men and women to serve in the country’s armed forces, football players were among those who volunteered. Partick Thistle FC were one of the many clubs whose players and former players became soldiers, sailors and airmen, and not all of them came home. This is a record of those Jagsmen who paid the ultimate price serving their country. They are listed by war & alphabetical order, with a short introduction outlining their club career, and then information on their war service. ... to The Partick Thistle Fallen →

    Can only second what everybody else has said. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

    Days like today is why I love this football club. Get it right up Tommy Wright and the tractor driving hordes - you are a bolt short of a functioning engine. Well done to the players and the management for today's result. And to every Jags fan tonight - may those beers taste good well into the night!!

    I’m sure that wee Bertie will be smoking on a celestial cigar as that was a typical Bertie performance. I really think that his time at Firhill, attracted a lot of what was in my view decidedly unwarranted criticism. In my opinion he definitely merited being mentioned in the same breath as Lambie and MacParland and that is no that bad company he’s keeping!

    It's not Motherwell, it's the authorities (SFA/UEFA/FIFA). It is to stop teams abusing the transfer windows. Lets say Real Madrid were impressed by Zak and wanted to sign him immediately. They could pay Thistle to release him, then sign him as a free agent. The player registration rules are there to prevent that and ensure that a player is registered to a club for the entire window.. Besides, there is nothing to prevent Stevie from making a living in a coaching or back room capacity, just not as a player. It is very irregular for this sort of situation to arise and suggests some sort of gross misconduct. There should be great, big, red, warning flags waving in the face of any potential employer.

    We should ditch playing rudden and Graham together and play one striker with two wide players on either side……yesterday there were endless long balls from McKenna missing the midfield to the strikers which 99% of the time just gave the ball away …..we needed to play more through midfield

    Understatement of the century. Don't think I've seen a referee's bottle crash so many times in one half of football. Absolute shitebag.

    I'll put this here as it's from another cup tie in this round. Niang scores two very good goals against Bonnyrigg. The first shows some great improvisation from a corner, the second he starts and finishes a quick break. (About 1.30 in and right at the end of the highlights).

    MY NEW FAVOURITE FOOTBALL TEAM!!!! Partick Thistle v Dunfermline, Scottish Cup - YouTube Well done to all the fans in the JL Stand. Great to see we have a young support in there to serve Thistle well into the future. Up The Jags.

    Oh! and a shout out to all those driving home last night, especially the further east your journey. Some Pars fans in particular would've faced a nightmare trip Where I stay (in Clackmannanshire) it took me over 2 hours to do the final part of my journey. That's normally a 10 min drive. Trees and power cables were down all over the shop and I had two real narrow escapes. I sincerely hope everyone made it home. Horrendous conditions.

    I wonder after that game whether rudden and Graham are too similar to be played together …..they were both played as target men today and we were better when we changed the front pairing

    Great memories of following Thistle when Bertie was our manager. For me the mid to late 70s was the best Thistle team I ever saw. Such sad news, RIP Bertie.

    PMA - Positive Mental Attitude. Since the Kilmarnock loss the team has been quietly concentrating on being solid and taking opportunities. Leaving that aside, anyone who watched ICT v Killie will recognise that there are going to be a lot of cagey 0-0 or 1-0 games amongst the top 5 until 1 or 2 separate themselves from the pack of 5, which is unlikely to happen this side of New Year. So QoS represents a real opportunity for us. Win the game - which isn't a foregone conclusion - and we will enjoy the bonus of knowing that one or even both of Raith and Arbroath will have dropped points. In summary, let's focus on the victory, go for it in a professional manner, achieve it and enjoy.

    With the budgets Archie got, he should have done better. His dealings in the market were suspect. He brought a lot of utter dross to Firhill.

    I agree with you and as I said - at the moment we are doing well. However had we taken full points at home against ICT and Dunfermline ( or at least 4 point) then with all other results being the same we would be challenging Kilmarnock at the top of the league. If we have aspirations to win this league we will not do so by winning our away games and not winning our home games. I think we have a good squad and as you point out with a good defence. At times some of our attacking play is breathtaking. We just need to be a bit more consistent. IMO the key is Turner. Our set plays are so much better with him in the team and he is very influential when he wanders into the midfield from his normal wide position. McCall has got to find a position for Turner in central midfield even if its playing in an advanced role just behind the strikers. But...........!

    Agree with everything said about him. My forum name was in honour of him, although it now describes me as well. Will always be remembered as a Lisbon lion, but in another part of Glasgow remembered for being a great manager. RIP Bertie.

    I loved Bertie as Thistle manager. He was a fantastic PR man and always kept us in the news. Aside that, he achieved great things with a part time squad. Was the making of Alan Rough, when he brought in John Arrol. Arrol was magnificent and if he hadn't suffered that dreadful injury at Motherwell, I believe we would have made top 10 that season. RIP Bertie. A Thistle great. ETA. Now lost three great managers in my time as a Thistle fan. McParland, Lambie and now Auld.

    Agreed, Jagzone highlights can cut both ways. Like you at the time, peering from the terracing at the far end of the pitch, I got the impression that our 3rd (Graham's 2nd) was a pretty good goal, but it was only on watching Jagzone that I saw how excellent it was, with slick passing leading to McKenna's pinpoint cross, and Graham's perfect finish. What Jagzone does not show was the prelude to our first goal. One of many long balls played up in the general direction of Zak Rudden. He brings it down expertly, holds off a couple of players and earns the free kick. He did this quite a few times, making a lot from unpromising material, so it is only appropriate to give him credit for this.

    Thistle fans checking the score from time to time are used to nailbiting experiences, but never as long as from three minutes past three until ten minutes past five, for the final score to come through.
