  1. They should be ashamed of these results and performances against part-time teams. Going to work all day and then going to training at night is hard going and these clubs continually match us and beat us. Pampered ******* won't know how easy they've had it until they're in the real world. They are kidding themselves on as full-time footballers getting beat every week against plumbers and joiners.
  2. Our next set of accounts will be worrying. Especially if we continue struggling on the park and need to keep adding panic signings to address the problems. Outwith Celtic and Rangers we must have one of the biggest first team squads and staff in the country as is.
  3. Really bad as usual. Pathetic that we are literally a one man team with Graham in a league like this. Appalling record against part-time teams. We could barely even beat Penicuik! Clyde will be in the bottom half of this league, we're definitely going to play better teams than them which is worrying as there wasn't anything between the teams. Archie's shitty training showing again. Several injuries already and there was no difference in fitness even towards the end. Glass out before he could sit down and Rudden looks like a crock who can't be relied upon. Only obvious pass marks was Sneddon. The weird thing is if billy big time Fox didn't leave he'd be starting as McCall fancied him more. McCall is a spent force. Overrated. Even his successes in the game have been small and relative. He can't handle pressure. Gobshite of a man. Squad is big and we still need players, especially a solid bit of competition on the left to get Penrice out of the team. Speaking of Penrice, him and Bannigan are two players typical of the Thistle cuddly attitude. Shite but get a pass because they're one of our own. Methinks a lot of these boys won't be playing full time football again when they leave Thistle, delaying the inevitable. Between the clowns like J Lo and her clique running the club and the shit on the park I've run out of patience. Its not good enough, ****** sort it.
  4. Looks like thats the lid finally shut on firhill developments https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/SC353372
  5. I'd quite like to have seen Lee and Conway tbh but the Thistle cult ran them off.
  6. Aye but he's a thistle man just like Gerry Britton Archie and all the other jobs for the boys cronies at the club.
  7. Just as well we've got thistle for ever eh?
  8. we need outside thinking at the club. the post stj regime left us in a heap. it was all down to john lambie turning it round on the field and it collapsed when he left. what was their end result. no youth academy, a three sided stadium, no training ground, and a mountain of debt. we are almost back where we started. all the above more or less still exist and we also have an even worse team now. gerry britton saying today in the daily record this is going to cost the club 300,000. part-time football may have to happen. fan ownership has really paid off hasnt it. if that the case the first thing a rubbish third tier football team should be doing is getting rid of the chief executive. we don't need one if we're going to run a small time setup. thistle has always been jobs for the boys anyway. archie, gerry britton, mccall, kenny arthur, maxie, fans working for the club and running it. far too cosy. its alright, a guy run out of stirling bloody albion will sort it. lets face it the pool of thistle fans with the knowledge and the money to offer the club has dried up. chien lee should have been welcomed with open arms, we are on our arse as it is with the bowling club mentality rife as ever.
  9. i wont be getting a season ticket, cant be arsed and to be honest, id be hard pushed to pay anymore than 16 quid to watch us play pub teams followed by two men and a dug. will watch the walk up prices with interest.
  10. statement reeks of the usual cuddly attitude. britton and low's leadership has been nothing but a disaster and i have no confidence in them. will our financial situation be so rosy after a year of playing teams like forfar, peterhead and montrose every week? mccall will be two games from the sack for the whole of the season, im not sure he can cope with the pressure - second place, semi final, relegated etc, thats mccalls thistle cv. the fans are completely drained by the last 3 years and back to back bad results is just going to make the irritable wanting a scapegoat its going to be tough next year. falkirk, cove have money behind them and we've struggled mightily against part-time teams recently. badly need to keep brian graham and zak rudden, they would score 30 each in that shit league. start with getting a decent goalie in fox is rubbish and should never have come back after the way he left.
  11. would have had a better response for a legal crowd fund i reckon
  12. Good. For too long we've taken things on the chin. Fans will help out with legal fees if need be.
  13. Will be boycotting any club who votes against us. There will be diddy clubs like Clyde in the league below who want the cash from our support. Sadly too many people in our fanbase are spineless so can never see this working as a collective.
  14. Can someone name anything we do well? The first team is rubbish, the youth setup a farce again, we don't engage with the local community, we don't have a training ground, the stadium is a three sided mess, hospitality rank rotten, unreliable ticketing system, home fans constantly made to feel like visitors at the club. You reap what you sow I suppose. Place has been rife with jobs for the boys and the pals act for years.
  15. There is no community at the club. the majority of the fanbase (myself included) lives outside the local area and travels in from a scattering of places. as a club we have totally neglected the possil/ruchill/maryhill/milton type areas in the vicinity of the ground. if you went through the databse of jagzone/season ticket holders etc how many would live in milngavie, bearsden, bishopbriggs, cumbernauld, the west end etc compared to these places? we're too busy spending time doing pointless pr exercises on things like funny looking mascots
  16. the boy dylan tait playing for raith last night was seemingly released by us! playing in their first team and hes only just turned 18. what a hatchet job archie, scott mckenzie etc did on the academy. some amount of these boys only becoming players when they leave the club, the amount of cricket scores that youth team used to get as well. all of weirs money in that academy wasted and even with our shit squad and players unavailable last night due to being cup tied and we still couldnt even get a youth player on the bench. its mad how poorly we are run as a club at every level.
  17. I really hope Archie isn't taking training again. McCall has always been hands off at his clubs with training and delegated it. Last time Archie was leading the squad we had constant injury problems and were often toiling late in games.
  18. This might be needed. Most of the team needs to go, and a wake up call for McCall in recent weeks r.e. O'Ware and Bannigan players he said he wanted to build around, but they are not the players they were and we need to be ruthless. Big Col needs to loosen the purse strings or we're ******.

    Right so we own Firhill in full again, but now what? I'd like to see some sort of plan for the disaster that is the bing and also for the future of the main stand.

    Paul Goodwin getting slated heavily on P&B. By fans of other clubs discussing his previous work. Sounds like an absolute chancer.

    so seemingly the warriors are considering a move back to firhill now after planning problems with scotstoun!?
  22. Was enough for me to be positive about. We were very good at moving the ball. Think we could do with a player with some dig in the middle we were a bit light when it went to 3-2. Overall though, it was decent. Their goals came from mistakes, much easier to sort out as opposed to teams genuinely carving us open. Was sat not far from the Clyde fans, and it was 90 minutes of anti Thistle songs. Including several about John Lambie. How desperate must they be to get noticed. Between the scumbags they sign and the songs they song, what a pathetic wee club.

    It doesn't matter if its Chien Lee or Paul Conway or Bill Gates. Theres again a portion of Thistle fans who regardless of the person don't want outsiders at the club. Yet the reality is the base of Thistle fans and their pals pals with disposable income and the knowledge to run a professional football club at this point has truly been exhausted. By all means however, let the fans run the club like a bowling club committee, because thats what they want, they demonstrate that every single time. They didn't want Gary Caldwell over Archie, god forbid Kris Doolan leave, now its suggested that someone who doesn't have a connection to the club might want to buy it and again its a no no. We've a cheek to mock the old firm attitude of only wanting people of their own ilk, we're worse.

    At this point I don't care. Success at all costs. Don't care about the trust, or people on the board being fans or having a connection to the club. Thats an old firm way of thinking thats crept into Thistle a lot when if it isn't someone who we deem as being one of us we chastise them with an incredible amount of paranoia, Caldwell has been going through that since the day he got the job. We won't get rid of managers or players or people with a connection to the club because they've served us well. Club needs to be a lot more ruthless. Again, like Kilmarnock, we sat with our finger up our arse with Archie and they binned Lee McCulloch and got Clarke in. Kilmarnock should not really be much bigger if at all than Thistle yet in the last 25 years they've not been relegated, been in Europe umpteen times, beaten the old firm more than I care to remember, won two cups, several high finishes etc, and guess what they've run up a lot of debt as well at several points, but success will never come for free, it hasn't for any provincial club anywhere, and look how many managers Killie went through in the time we were in the top league. Lots, because they have a fanbase with higher expectations whilst we were largely just greatful to be in that league. Thats what years of suffering in the lower leagues has done to us, the slightest improvement and we get nose bleeds and misty eyed.

    I am all for this. The club IMO is on the verge of another sleepy period after relegation as has happened each of the last three periods we've dropped out of the top league. There isn't the money or the infrastructure to get us up on our own. If we do somehow go up, it won't be sustained. It was only sustained for a brief period last time out whilst a load of bigger clubs worked their way through some problems and when they all returned refreshed to the top league we got relegated. I have quite a laid back attitude to it. I see people online who have been very critical of Low and Caldwell suddenly having reservations about this. Well IMO we have suffered enough, and again someone pointed out Hearts, Livi, Dundee etc had questionable ownership, well big ******* deal, they all got into Europe, won cups in some cases and then shafted their creditors in the end anyway or hell in other cases clubs have went bust and its as if it never happened. Everyone's done it whilst we've played by the rules and still almost ran into serious problems on several occasions needing new investment on the board and a rugby team to bail us out, and here we are again closing stands, cutting back on staff at the club. We're now verging on a generation of PTFC supporters who know us as a lower league club. A skint one as well. Theres a very low self esteem attitude at PTFC. People treat ambition as a bad word. Years and years of underachievement will do that I suppose. When did we last take a gamble of any sort? You've got a team like Killie for instance who are in now in Europe simply on the basis of taking a financial gamble on an outstanding manager. They went from relegation contenders to the best of the rest with that one decision pretty much. Much the same players as the previous manager. In relative terms to their wealth their investment is going to cost them pennies. Theres a core of fans at the club who will take 6th or worse in this league until the end of time because you know "I just want a club to support". This guy I don't think is going to splash the cash, we're just going to be another part of the system, but hes our best hope in a long time of genuine wealth coming into the club which can propell us to a sustainably higher level. Get rich or die trying I say. I can't take another decade of mediocrity at this level and just sporting an acceptance of existence.
