  1. How unfortunate an incident that none of us will ever know the facts of becomes the main talking point. The internet really is a heap of shite sometimes. It's none of our business.
  2. I also never understood what the fuss about was with Fitzpatrick.
  3. It's about looking forward and renewal now. Great guy but wouldn't want him back as a player.
  4. I agree. And this bit of the statement "But I ask everyone associated with Thistle to never forget today. To never forget how it feels to be relegated unfairly. To never forget that there are many good decent people and clubs in Scotland who stood with us, publicly and privately – but there are some whose fear and self-interest got in the way of doing the right thing." is better left unsaid. The sooner the club drops the victim mentality and unsettled scores attitude, the better it will be for everyone.
  5. And it didn't. All the court case did was lose us the high moral ground in the eyes of many - rightly or wrongly... The board need to accept defeat and start to re-build the club and all the relationships we depend upon. Leave the righteous (and rightful) anger to the fans.
  6. We were ****** when we were bottom of the league, we were significantly more ****** when the league was shambollically ended early, and we are once again going to be more ****** after this legal bun fight is over. It's like the logical extension of our demise over the last few seasons. Even without football being played, we still keep sinking.
  7. Who knows? Perhaps they would get more for the money if handled by an organization with charitable status? It was in accordance with the conditions of grant and James Anderson's intentions - not much more you can say with any certainty.
  8. James Anderson had an interest in the community aspect of this from the outset. Check out the quotes in the article below. I am sure the SPFL Trust conditions of grant are absolutely in line with his thinking - these conditions will apply regardless of whether the money is spent by the club or it's associated charity. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52992075
  9. It appears from the announcement here that passing the grant to club charities was entirely in keeping with conditions of grant. https://spfltrust.org.uk/all-spfl-clubs-qualify-for-covid-19-crisis-grant/
  10. Of course. Stupid me. I hadn't thought of that.
  11. Has anyone heard anything from McCall and the football management team? They have been very quiet in recent weeks/ months.
  12. I can't remember if I voted or not though????
  13. Great to see young Lewis getting to the shortlist for Championship forward of the year! I know it's been a difficult time - just a little ray of sunshine in the darkness... https://spfl.co.uk/news/ladbrokes-championship-team-of-the-season-forwar
  14. I agree that we are risking goodwill and good relationships with other clubs. What happens in future when we're in market for loan players? What about all the mutual back-scratching and favours that likely goes on, that ordinary fans never hear about? Good relationships are always critical. We may think recent events demonstrate these relationships are a bit hollow, however we have definitely benefited in past, and could've used the goodwill that extended to us as the injured party as leverage in future. That's gone now. For a court case that we will likely lose. Even with someone else picking up the bill, this is most definitely not a shot for nothing. I really don't see this playing out well for us in the long term.
  15. While it makes us all feel good that the club is showing a bit of fighting spirit, I do wonder if we will be better off in the longer term, given the damage it'll do to relationships with other clubs. They will get their own back one way or another...
