  1. I know this could be a silly question. But is there going to be any testing In lge 1 and2. I've heard several saint Mirren players and queens players have tested positive.. so I would imagine at least a cpl of our players will have caught it. So could our first 2 games be forfeited. Its gonna be so important to be top of the league at all times this season such is the precedent set by our friendly muppets at the spfl. Apologies for spelling mistakes or wrong words my auto correct Is being a plick.
  2. I cant believe we are this much further on in time since I posted this originally and we still aren't 100 per cent sure what league we will be in. Although I'm fairly certain we will be league 1 next season I still find it unbelievable it's still a slight possibility it could all change. How are we meant to be able to look at adding to the squad with this uncertainty. What will our budget be what league will we tell possible new players we will be playing in. I'm still shocked the teams wer not able to look past self interest and allow reconstruction to ensure no one team suffered too much as a result of this outbreak. I think best we can hope for is some compensation but yet again it's the jags who are humped by the footballing bodies and associations in this country.
  3. Yeah in the programme they are talking to his brother. And he mentions this I'm not sure if the one they are speaking to was the guy who played in the final. I just liked the fact he referred to thistle as us, well he said we wer playing celtic in the final. It mentions him then signing for us and staying for four years. I also liked lineker referring to us as the jags I wonder sometimes if the english fans and pundits are aware of us as they look down and belittle the scottish game so often.
  4. I actually thought Alan had played in that final. Quite a good bit of coverage for the jags for a wee change. Funny hearing lineker talking about the jags.
  5. Good tribute to alan hansen on bbc 1 after motd tonight (saturday). Any excuse to look back at that I like the way his brother says WE were playing celtic in the final. Does anyone know if alan is a jags fan I take it his brother is.
  6. Hopefully there is going to be a good few more of the under achievers away soon also. I am surprised anybody would walk away just now I'd imagine it would be almost impossible to find another club willing to take on a new wage at this point. I thought teams would be further ahead financially before anybody even dared move on. It's a big risk for players who want a move just now.
  7. I think we have to, it would be crazy to take a chance on any other outcome. If the shaftings from the powers in the past are anything to go by then yes another shafting it will be. I'm quite happy fox has gone, I'd prefer going with sneddon in goal. We will pass him by on the way back up next season he could always be a bit of a liability. We have to cut our cloth now and if that means getting rid of some serious constant under achivers then I'm happy with that.
  8. Your spot on there Big col, any other club on the country probably the world anybody associated with that kind of rapid decline would be gone. It seems at firhill total failure is acceptable especially if your seen as a jags man. We need to shake the blind loyalty we show. Bannigan for me is an example of that loyalty it massively debatable whether theres been a player in there for the last few seasons. Most other teams would've got rid not thistle though. Same with archie for me the relegation season, that defeat from killie the pumping should've been his last game. But people were happy to be relegated as long as we kept him. What other club would even for a second contemplate that. Think about that could you imagine any team or teams fans saying that. If I was sitting with a Falkirk fan and he said he was ok with relegation as long as they kept so and so or whatever manager I'd think hes lost the plot. We need to be more ruthless more harsh get some pride back.
  9. Nothing would shock me with those 2. Teams will go to the wall all teams will take massive hits, but these 2 will see it as an opportunity. They've wanted b teams in the leagues for years now. Everyone else suffers those 2 benefit. We need to stop having the 4 old firm games a season as our main selling point to sky to even begin to gain some power back from those 2 stains on our game.
  10. I think we have a start of a side that's capable of winning that league. Still some dead wood to shift, I'd agree the board are part of that. Mcall has previous of taking teams up out of this league that for me and the players coming in Lyons, Sena and docherty I'm confident we could win that league.... well hopefull anyway lol.
  11. When possible we just need to get on with it. It's a kick on the balls no mistake, no surprise thistle on the end of a shafting again that pisses me off. Now I just want next season started and I'm looking forward to looking forward to going to the games again, home games anyway.
  12. Yeah I wouldn't hold my breath on anything other than us being down. I really agree though a fresh start now all over. Let's start looking forward to going to the football again. These last 2 seasons, last 3 really have been some of the worst times I remember following us. I think in the long run we could come out of this much better off. Clean start, new mentality and a much fresher looking squad. I seen some clips of senas games on the website he looked decent. Him coming in or back anyway alongside docherty and lyons that's 3 basically new players who we know have what it takes at this level. It's not always better players you need in lge 1 its grit and a togetherness, another reason I wouldn't mind us getting rid of a good few players we have currently. That lack of effort pissed me off way way more than lack of talent.
  13. I've long accepted now we are down no matter what hearts next move is to try and drag it out and cling on. It's not great and like the rest of us I'm pissed off we get shafted again. But for so long now it's been an effort dragging myself to firhill on a saturday. Hopefully we get this next season up and running soon and we can look forward. It's all been doom and gloom for so long I want to look ahead and with the team we have and the couple coming in I'm hopefull of a good season this time. We have a good forward line especially at this level if we keep as it sounds like we will Graham and rudden. The boy lyons knows the way to goal at this level sena looked decent at this level. That's just a few so I think we could end up winning a lot of games have a good season and end up with a winning mentality again. Even end up looking forward to the football on a Saturday again. It could end up being a good thing in the long run to just start over get a new mentality and that enjoyable feeling going to the football again. No had that for a while. I know theres still a lot of shit to get sorted before hand. I just wanted a positive post it's all been negative at firhill for so long now. So hopefully sooner rather than later get it back on and I'm looking forward to winning games in lge 1 and trying to win a title again.
  14. I hope we dont end up using a lot of the cash that comes in from the s.t. sales to get us through this time and end up with a smaller budget next season. I suppose needs must I just hoped we are better equipped than most to deal with this. Most other teams of our size I mean.
