  1. Jean Yves' other brilliant game (I think he only had two) was John Lambie's last as manager at Firhill when bottom of the league Thistle turned over top of the table Falkirk 2-1. Armand One scored two goals, but Jean Yves was so good, he won Man of the Match. I remember it well, as my daughter was mascot and I have got a great photo of her flanked by Jean Yves and Armand.
  2. I suppose it depends how you define “reject”. If it is purely based on how they left us, notwithstanding the great success of their previous careers, then both Kris Doolan and Chris Erskine would be Thistle rejects.
  3. Is it too late to enter your child for the shot putt in Tokyo?
  4. In answer to your questions, in the order posed: 1) No 2) Yes 3) Very
  5. Is that you spreading a rumour? Did he have a short loan spell with us before the COVID shutdown?
  6. Reminder of a horrible night. Struggled to get to Dundee after work. Usually at Tannadice we are accommodated in an excellent side stand with great views. For example, we could really see and appreciate Stephen O'Donnell's wonder goal from a move down that side in 2015. But that night we were stuck in a cramped low end stand with pillars obstructing the view. Seemed that we were only there for a few minutes and we were already 3-0 down thanks to Cammy Smith (he must have been really young then if he is only 25 now). All in all a miserable game and the consolation goal we eventually scored never looked like sparking a fightback. Hopefully Cammy can erase and replace these memories.
  7. Thank you for letting me know. I had seen the mention on the official website, but did not immediately connect it with the clap. However, I guessed that it was something of this nature, so joined in enthusiastically. Will be thinking of his family.
  8. What was the spontaneous clap for?
  9. Nice to see Chris Erskine back fit and scoring for East Kilbride v Clyde
  10. I have decided to play with two holding midfielders. I will take both the printed out electronic ticket and the QR code on the phone. If one does not work, surely the other one will.
  11. McKenna immediately falls over his feet!
  12. Tiffoney has of course been excellent and Turner continues to do well. Another to impress in the second half has been McKenna who at half time was switched from centre half to right back.
  13. Tiffoney assists for Rudden and Graham so now 2-1 to Thistle
  14. What a difference with Tiffoney on for Murray
  15. Turner only player earning pass marks. General lack of drive and determination from the rest and too many hopeful punts and aimless crosses.
  16. Bring back George Gillespie! I was surprised that Luljan Gjeloshi had a 100% clean sheet record from 2 games. I though that he was supposed to have been a joke/disaster.
  17. How many Thistle substitutes have taken penalties in shoot outs? I am thinking Kris Doolan in the Challenge Cup Final, but there may be other examples. Who was the latest in terms of game time to come on, and therefore the most likely to be regarded as a "penalty-taking substitute"? [I would tend to ignore League Cup group stage mini-shoot outs, where there is little pressure, and focus on situations where there is immediate jeapordy as regards Cup or promotion/relegation play off elimination.]
  18. Hopefully our defenders will have been inspired by Chiellini and Bonucci. Real defenders who love and celebrate defending, and spread inspiration from front to back.
  19. Just want to agree with all these points. Congratulations to Jaggy & Auld Jag, and big thank you to BB for all the work you put into this.
  20. Difficult to tell from far end but defence seemed posted missing. No cover for Jamie who appeared to have no chance with any of the goals.
  21. What a strange game. We were totally dominant, scored a great team combination goal and looked generally excellent, but Dunfermline suddenly scored 3 fairly easy goals.
  22. Remember that 13 games was at least half a season in the strange circumstances of last season. Personally, I am happy that we have not pulled a Fox out of the hat to demote Jamie to Number 2 without the possibility of fair competition. Jamie has a reasonable opportunity to establish himself. Equally Harry sounds good enough and keen enough that he will be a challenger/deputy as required.
  23. I thought "Heart of Stone" was a song.
