  1. Anyone else just getting a clock counting down? Where's the live stream?
  2. Except, M'Lady, tomorrow night Thistle could equal the club record of 7 consecutive matches with no goals conceded AND Sneddon could be the first keeper in Thistle's history to achieve 7 consecutive clean sheets. The previous record of 7 was in 1920/21 when Kenny Campbell achieved 5 on the bounce followed by Rab Bernard then Campbell again. Pretty cruel if he was dropped. I realise I may just have put the mockers on the whole thing!
  3. I think this might be Hearts at Firhill 22/12/1973 - although it doesn't look very wintery. Frank Coulston watches Jackie Husband attending to who? Guess is that it's John Hansen who was carried off in the first half. The score was 1-3. Rough, Hansen, Kellachan, Glavin, Campbell, Clark, Gibson, CRAIG, Coulson, Rooney, Houston. (Chalmers) No idea about the blue shorts!
  4. If it's 0-0 then it will only be the 2nd time in over 6,600 matches that there have been 3 consecutive 0-0s.
  5. You can add Buster Blood Vessel too!
  6. Defenders conversion rate is 73% Midfielders conversion rate is 74% Forwards conversion rate is 70%
  7. Interesting point M'lady. Definitions can become redundant over the decades as terms fall out of favour. Can also be subjective. Was Any Kerr a forward or a defender? Was Joe Hogan a defender or a forward? I've done a quick and dirty analysis of the players known to have taken penalties and they breakdown as follows:- Defenders 23% Midfielders 22% Forwards 55% I didn't look at these by season but (to my surprise) there is little evidence to suggest defenders took the majority of penalties.
  8. Senna straight red in 25 seconds for Alloa v Cove Rangers. Don't think the ref had much option! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KpntCTVTIk
  9. While you are all waiting for the book you could do worse that read my article in The Thistle Archive! (Shameless plug.) The Day The Other Cup Came Up To Maryhill - The Thistle Archive
  10. As was said above, we can't go on swapping keepers after a few games as soon as they make a mistake. Young keepers are prone to gaffs but unless we ditch them both for a more experienced keeper (on a loan deal?), the manager will need to decide once and for all to give one of them a longer run and live with the likes of yesterday as they gain experience. In and out of the team can't be doing their confidence any good.
  11. Willie Sharp. The rest is guess-work. Raith Rovers at Kirkcaldy? Extreme right Adam Forsyth?
  12. Cheers. That's my very point. They're not SFA/SPFL regulations. If the SG website is up to date then they're the law. There is nothing about only having to wear them when moving about either. Who briefs the stewards I wonder.
  13. Slightly off topic but there was a letter in the Herald this week about face coverings and it made me wonder what the law (as opposed to the recommendation) is with regards to the fitba'. The current regulations (updated 3 days ago) in the SG's website list 23 situations where face coverings are mandatory by law. They include "sports stadiums". No mention of indoors or outdoors or both. Looking at crowd shots at Hampden last night and other TV highlights suggests virtually no-one is wearing them. Is there a mass defiance here or is it a case that the regulations aren't understood? There is a deafening silence from the authorities.
  14. Who's No 30 Stanway on the bench???
  15. Every day is a school day! Def looked like a thistle at the time but looks like lions after all.
  16. My guess is that Germany (playing in white) caught the FA out re a colour clash and that they had to find an alternative strip quickly. Still doesn't explain why they had access to a complete set of Scotland Jerseys. Good pub quiz/trivia question. PS. The title of the thread was meant to be Thistles at White Hart Lane!
  17. Did anyone see the first episode of the new “Thirties in Colour” series on TV this week? Against a background of the rise of Nazi Germany they showed clips of England v Germany at White Hart Lane in 1935 (3-0). Didn’t pay that close attention to the first few seconds as the teams ran out but when the images were colourised I discovered England were playing in blue jerseys with a large white thistle. Ring any bells? A side story was that both FAs had agreed there would be no public display of German flags but one spectator noticed the swastika flying on a flagpole on top of the main stand. He climbed the flagpole and pulled it down.
  18. However you want to describe him, he was a handful all afternoon. 6ft 6 ins according to the Arbroath stream commentator. Not just a target man, he showed he could play with the ball at his feet as well and exposed our defence down the right several times.
  19. Since the 3-1 win away in Aug 2001 mentioned above there have been 4 competitive matches at Gayfield:- 0-1, 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3. [Throw in a 0-1 friendly as well if you wish.] The overall competitive record away to Arbroath since November 1935 (first competitive match) is:- W 8, D 11, L9 = 28.
  20. Docherty, Hastie and Bell all injured (knocks).
  21. This is the same SWPFL that fined us £100 and "awarded" us a 0-3 defeat against Celtic in the League Cup last week for bringing on two trialists as subs. Hearts got the same punishment but didn't even bring their trialists on. [The actual score was 1-3.]
