  1. I thought we were digging down to at least the underground to fix our pitch. So, this has just got to be a photo from days gone bye. Please, oh Lord!, let's assume that the very least that is going to happen is the canal is diverted via the South and East Ends of Glasgow. It would be a generous gesture by the City of Glasgow. Leaving us dry. Which, naturally, will be our new problem!
  2. But, what comes next? I'd really like someone to sketch out the next steps. Because I haven't a scooby what happens next.
  3. Interesting discussion. I kind of agree with https://www.wearethistle.net/forums/index.php?/profile/53-lady-isobel-barnett/&wr=eyJhcHAiOiJmb3J1bXMiLCJtb2R1bGUiOiJmb3J1bXMtY29tbWVudCIsImlkXzEiOjE0NjIyLCJpZF8yIjozODQ0ODh9'' That a team that is winning tends to work the time down. I 'd kind of expect them to do that, no matter how annoying I find it. Chacun a son gout.
  4. Quite confused by all of this. It would seem to me that the club should own all of it's own area? Extending to protected space that it needs? Is that not obvious? What am I missing?
  5. What is the fear about us PATG folk? (Pay at the Gate) I cannot afford season tickets for myself, my two sons and my two grandchildren to cover every game. We have to budget. And some weeks we are broke. Yet we see ourselves as just as strong supporters as our richer friends?
  6. Kind of agree with Dick Dastardly's comment. Holding on to our better players may be crucial.
  7. sandy, Thanks for replying. There is something wrong with the way that Colin Weir's gift is being dealt with, at least in my opinion. I am not at all convinced that the people who have taken over his estate are acting the way he thought they would. Could be wrong, but I don't think so.
  8. At the risk of being super pendantic. I have held a Thistle Season ticket, sometimes, but not all the time (I am quite old). For several years, my family and I have 'paid at the gate'. I do not see myself, nor my family, as lesser supporters because of that. The people that come through the gate, and the excetera's of extras, are all more than welcome to my Firhill. I frankly don't get this new division of pay at the gate and season ticket holders. Just out of curiosity, what would the 'gate' be if it was limited to season ticket holders? That, it seems to me is an unjustifiable snobbery. And, probably a death knell for the club. No growth, no future. And absolutely no Jag fan should be happy to be called a snob!
  9. Well, Bowen Boys, I think that everybody in the JTF should take a deep breath before they enter into a deal like that. To be as clear as I can, I want PTFC to be a fan owned club.
  10. Just wonder whether you do think the last minute loans are positive or not?
  11. Thanks for the link. At the tail end of that highly entertaining Jim Melrose reminisces, it said that they are doing more with other ex players. Anyone know where they can be watched?
  12. I am douglas clark. Keeps it simple.
  13. Well, I feel more or less the same. Smug, not exactly. Satisfied? You bet Smile on my face? Oh! you got to believe it! I'd think that this is astonishing. Quite an amazing turnaround. Luckly to support PTFC.
  14. I thought we fought pretty impressively. That was a pretty hard game and. apart from the interesting idea that we will top this league, we got an away point. So I assume it all depends on our game against Falkirk. Is that even the consensus around here? Is it even true?
  15. I am quite astonished at the turn -a- round over the last month or so. I thought we had become a 'seaside' league club what with the canal and such like. I am now quite excited that we might actually win this division. It was only recently that I started to buy pay to view, and whilst nowhere near the excitement of actually being at a game I felt, at the very least, connected. This football club will always remain 'special' to me and it's attempts to retain, through pay to view, at least a link, has been impressisve. It seems to me that, whilst in almost perpetualyl struggles to survive, it does just that.s Perhaps with better luck, we might thrive after this season. Just saying. Y'know. Hopeful like.
