  1. He reffed an 18 goal thriller at Firhill a couple is seasons back! and he also referred the reserve game where Gary Fraser had a ‘moment’ - I rate him quite highly and is definitely up and coming (the 18 goal thriller was the KD Testimonial game)
  2. It was a 4-4-2 with Turner right sided and Tiff left sided - both worked attack and defence superbly - great shift by all
  3. Holt was left centre back with Foster at left back. Mayo and Holt were outstanding as a central defensive pair. Just on Kevin Holt he has become the first defender to score for two seasons! We’ve been mentioning this for ages and ages and when one finally does we are not on commentary to mention it!!
  4. The young right full back who came on was Matthew Doherty who did very well while Zander McKenzie was in midfield (14) whose pass to young Gospel set up the winner.
  5. No there was no warning - it was the one and only time he spoke to him
  6. If I remember correctly the referee, Martin Clark, insisted Gerry left his position in the “stand” and go over to the Main Stand and sit there but not in the dug out!!
  7. Stunning stuff! I would have guessed it wouldn’t have happened before but there you go. I doff my cap to you once again - knowledge!
  8. I can’t think of any other season in the clubs history where this unusual statistic has come to the fore. We have mentioned it on commentary but can anyone else remember a season where no defender has scored for the team in an entire season as has just happened. tough one to be able to research but if anyone can AF Kincaid is the man! They did hit the bar on several occasions but no goals!
  9. No - once the social media ban is over I’m sure details will be posted but Ian McCall on the radio stated it would be on Wednesday with NO representation from the SPFL
  10. Assuming it’s the same Jimmy McClure, he was a very learned and friendly gentleman who used to act as doorman to the directors lounges and hospitality for many years. Impeccably turned out and always pleasant he was part of the match day experience till his passing. While I’m here - Michael Max aged 53. First taken to Firhill by my uncles in 1976 and found it impossible to let go the Thistle attraction. A 2-0 win over Arbroath with goals from Joe Craig and Dennis McQuade! Have had the pleasure of helping out doing various tasks through the years where currently doing commentary on the stream as well as host on match day at hospitality (sadly not recently!) Perhaps the best part is knowing so many Thistle fans who share the same goal of seeing the club reach as high as it can knowing full well it will have its ups and downs. We may not always agree about what route we should take but do love the fact that everyone has an opinion to share and would never criticise anyone for that opinion. Had lots of highs at the club but being good friends with club President Robert Reid as well as getting to know and be friends with the great John Lambie perhaps trumps anything that has happened on the pitch.
  11. During the latter stages in phase one of the season Sena played a number of games to a very high standard and the team barely lost any goals. Yes he did make mistakes against United which were very costly. The manager could have taken him out there and then but gave him the chance against East Fife. To be fair he really struggled in the first half and was taken out of the firing line which was completely the right thing to do for both player and team. Do I think that means he’s finished as a centre back? Absolutely not and although there may still be discussions about where he will play in the team, I still think he’s got a lot of learning to go through and will hopefully continue to be managed well to get the best out of him. While I would never deny any fan the right to have an opinion I think Sena deserves a bit more respect for the efforts he has put in so far this season and I certainly wish him nothing but a bright future given all he has had to go through to get to this stage of his career.
  12. It was the normal grey away top we wore last night not the blue anniversary top. The grey one is fine but the blue one is sensational! While mentioning the anniversary top it is worth thanking all the jersey sponsors, especially Just Employment Law, who allow that top to be worn unbranded - didn’t have to do that but all part of the excellent sponsorship that they afforded us
  13. At the one and only look we get of the incident neither of us thought it was a foul. At the home games we are afforded the luxury of a replay but at the away games we have to call it as we see it live. My gut reaction at the time was no penalty and I’ve not had the chance to look at it on the highlights to see if I still think that!
