  1. It's nice to see a wee thread on here about PTWFC. Since our elevation to SWPL1 there's definitely been an uptick in level of interest in their fortunes but we're not really seeing that reflected in our attendances. Just out of curiosity what is there, if anything, that would see a passive interest in the women's team translate into going along to even the occasional game? Genuinely interested to hear people's thoughts and suggestions re this.
  2. Like many, many other people I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Bertie Auld. To me, who first went to Firhill in 1977 aged 9, he wasn't Bertie Auld, Lisbon Lion. I was too young to appreciate the significance of that. He was simply the cigar smoking manager of my team. The significance of what he was doing as manager of my team was lost on me too. It's only with the passage of time and the knowledge that comes with age can that be properly put in perspective. He took a part-time Thistle to the top flight. And kept us there. He took us to one League Cup Semi-Final. He took us to two Scottish Cup Semi-Finals. We were cheated in 1979. He took us to the brink of European football. I was gutted when he left. I was just about old enough to appreciate what he had done by then. I loved it when he came back with Hibs and we won 1-0. "Bertie, Bertie what's the score" sang The Shed underlining how wonderfully fickle we football fans are. I hated it when his Hamilton side beat us a few years later. He came back home, just round the corner from his childhood Maryhill home, in 1986 and rescued us from relegation to Scotland's basement league. He should have stayed beyond that but Ken Bates intervened and the club went into near terminal decline. It took John Lambie, cut from the same type of cloth as our Bertie, to rescue our club. Imagine had the two worked together at Firhill. So then farewell Bertie Auld. My first Partick Thistle manager and 44 years on still among the very best. Partick Thistle Legend. He will never be forgotten.
  3. Yes it was. https://ptfc.co.uk/ptfc-fixture/kelty-hearts-v-partick-thistle-26th-june-2021/
  4. I can't see any sign of your original post. Or of it being deleted via any moderator action. Can't say that I'm personally very keen on Taylor's view on things and disagree entirely with his views on BLM but his comments strike me as a legitimate subject for debate. Providing everyone can vere away from the type of comment that has already prompted one post to be reported and subsequently deleted.

    Site Back

    Sorry for the problems with the site this week. We are now back but you will need to access, at least for now, the site via www.wearethistle.net/forums/ If you are reading this then you must already have done so! Hopefully you should be able to use the old co.uk domain in the near future. Nothing else has changed. All content remains as it was before , cough, Lockdown but you will need to log back in to post. Thanks for your patience and if you can help spread the word that would be much appreciated.
  6. I don't think a club(s) should be punished if a player contracts Covid-19 and as a consequence can't fulfil a fixture providing they can demonstrate that all appropriate protocols were followed. A club(s) should be punished, however, if they are unable to fulfil a fixture due to breaches in Covid protocol by their player(s) irrespective of whether any player(s) subsequently contracts Covid-19 or not. It's not unreasonable to expect clubs to be responsible for the actions of their players.
  7. There might be value in everyone drawing breath for a second. Woodstock Jag is not responsible for Thistle sitting bottom of the league when the league was called. He's not responsible for the failure to reconstruct the leagues, the failure to win in the Court of Session or the fact that arbitration didn't go our way. He stated, forcefully and repeatedly (boy did he repeat his view) that our legal approach was destined to fail. He was proven right. A lot of the anger right now is misplaced in his direction. Meantime Woodstock Jag could perhaps give thought to how he is coming across right now. Is this the right place and time for this apparent level of triumphalism? That might be the reason for the vitriol coming his way.
  8. Any excuse to post some classic Harrison.
  9. Yeah, so everyone could try and stay away from anything that could possibly be considered defamatory that would be nice. Cheers.
  10. It's great that so many people felt that they could forego the offer a refund on their season tickets but nobody should be criticised for accepting the offer. Thread Locked.
  11. Now done. Let me know if you want to changed back.

    Zero Tolerance

    As is the case with discussion sites things can become heated at times. Inevitably there will be personality clashes. Such is life Over the course of the last few months, however, a number of Reports have been made to Admin that have been, IMO, threatening in nature. There has been a further couple over the last 24 hours which is what has prompted this post. For the avoidance of doubt zero tolerance will be exhibited towards a repeat. On a similar, and not unrelated, subject there has been repeated references to Personal Messages of unsavoury nature being sent. The very nature of Personal Messages makes it extremely difficult to corroborate their existence. Again for the avoidance of doubt zero tolerance will be exhibited to anyone who is demonstrated to have sent such messages. Equally zero tolerance will be exhibited to anyone who can be demonstrated to have made false accusation of the above. In the meantime please continue to debate the affairs of Partick Thistle, on and off the pitch, with the same vigour and passion that you always have. Try and do it in as civil a manner as you can but above all else please be mindful of the above. Thanks for reading.
  13. You banned my last post?



    1. admin


      I haven't banned anything. I sent  an email to your personal email account.



  14. Were you and I not supposed to have a pow-wow?


    Here is my e-mail address: for any other ways of you communicating with me have obviously failed.


    [email protected]



  15. Could you set up a place where I could talk to you off - line?   Frankly you need to talk to anyone, not just me, about powers you assume we have, but don't, and what you are going to do about it.  Your 'complaint' about having your meal in NYC interrupted would be more convincing if you had dealt with devolving authority.  Which you haven't done to my immediate knowledge.

    You need a fora for folk like me who work on this site to ask you questions. They are not onerous, they are obvious, but require your steer.

    Please provide that.

      Fair enough Tom. You probably thought, as did I, that this site is worth saving.  And we both put our names forward. And then we went "Wow!", we have been given a live hand grenade.

      So, I am in an exactly the same position as you.

      I do not understand how this site is supposed to work and frankly how it works. (For instance, I haven't a clue whether this is being read by you alone, you and other moderators, or the entire membership. Neither do I understand what my role is supposed to be. I thought I knew what a moderator was, but apparently not. )

      I would be happy to meet you. I am not at all reluctant to do so.  And will do so, if you want. Maryhill as a place, anytime.  Your call.  Not 19th Dec before 17:00 otherwise.....

      But, perhaps a subsequent meeting should be a tad wider than that?

      It seems to me that a lot of people care about this web-site and the invite should extend to anyone that regularily contributes on here? 

      Can we try to move this forward?
