The 1st one was a bit before my time but i certainly enjoyed the 2nd one. There are a few jags fans around GG maybe we can use this site for our posts.

Posted by: Willieg 15th Mar 2011, 10:12pm

Oops, I don't know what happened there but what I was trying to say is I managed to get up to the Dundee match a couple of weeks back and I thought we are playing some nice football at the moment. Given the number of GG members on the site who come from Maryhill I agree with Irrie there must be quite a few closet Jags supporters. We could really do with more people getting along to Firhill to support the team and can I get you to have a look at the PTFC site. They have a Centenary Fund which you can subscribe to for the modest sum of 5 to 20 per month which ensures you get included in the monthly draw for some very exciting prizes, including a car! The Jags are our only Maryhill team so please get along and support the team. Use it or lose it.
Thanks, Willie

Johnny MacKenzie, what a player. The number one right winger in scotland. I had a wee budgie i called johnny mac.People say that if he had played for rangers or celtic he would have had many more caps. I for one am glad he didnt, it allowed me to cheer for him unashamedly. He made me a jags supporter even more than the facvt that i lived in springbank st and that my uncle was bobby henderson who played goal for them

I've just googled Partick Thistle 1921 and same again with 1971 and no image with a Robertson's Golliwog has come up. What's the connectuion?

Posted by: irrie 16th Apr 2011, 10:56am

Morning all. The Jags have lost manager Ian Mcoll who resigned for personal and professional reasons. He is succeeded in the interim by Jackie macnamara assisted by Simon Donnelly and Ian Cameron. Cheers

I was born and brought up at Queens Cross literally 200yards from the stadium and attended up until I was about 22/23 and always had good times there,however one of the most memorable days was about 12 years ago when I was invited as a guest for the pre match dinner.
It was something special.Champagne in the large foyer and a tour round the trophy room and then lunch and drinks.Seat in the main box,halftime pies and Bovril(pies to die for) and then after match drinks and sandwiches,meet the players.This hospitality went on till 7pm and was one of the best days Ive had.The Jags might not have been the best on the park but they could certainly put on an impressive meal.
That day as I recall they were playing Inverness Caledonian Thistle and won.It was a great day.
I was also lucky enough to be in the Hampden stand with my late father and uncles for the Cup final.One of the things that stuck in my mind that day apart from winning of course was the number of priests in the stand.I dont think they were Jags fans but were good fun all the same and took the ribbing from the Jags fans in good part.
Only two or three years ago I gave away a signed photo of every Jags player at the after match reception to a really staunch Jags fan from Milngavie and it was as though Id given him a treasure.I hope the Jags manage in time to get back to Premier status,it would be great for the Scottish game.
I just thought Id add that Big John Harvey ex Jags centre half is still on the go and is a regular around Bearsden Cross.

Great wee story Jupiter, memories that will always remain with you.

Posted by: Mathieson 17th Jul 2011, 11:44am

I have a life long pal who is a Thistle fan and has had to put up with all sorts of ribbing from all and sundry about his team but he unfailingly faces each new season in full expectation that this will be the year. Is dedication like that that is most admirable in fitba fans the world over.

Hi Jupe i dont know if you are old enough to remember the old springbank st. I was born in the second last close on the left going up towards firhill. We must have been born close in distance at least. I left there when i was twenty when my family moved to easterhouse.

Posted by: Jupiter 18th Jul 2011, 12:25am

andypisces,I remember it very well.I remember a wee bakery shop tucked in between the gable ends of the buildings.I also remember at one time the premises which is now the undertakers was a car sales showroom and on the other side,probably opposite your close was a warehouse for household goods like ironmongery.One of the attractions in Springbank Street was the trolley buses which slowed down when they turned into Firhill Road,hudgie time!
My school was over the road...Springbank Primary.

It must have been like days of old at Queens Cross yesterday when the Celtic came to Maryhill to test their skills on the Jags.... and got beat.As a kid it was always a big day at Firhill when the Old Firm called with hundreds of supporters buses parked all round the area.The Jags were often on the receiving end of things but I never recall there being any bother.I seem to recall there were massive crowds(maybe some Jags supporters can tell me the ground capacity record,(poss55k?)) and I read that yesterday the game was delayed due to crowd congestion..5,500 fans.
Well done the Partick Thissel!

Posted by: mitchell 18th Jul 2011, 06:11am

Who will remember this team, and who did the beat, and the score?

Rough, J Hansen, Forsyth, Glavin, Campbell, Strachan, McQuade, Coulston, Bone, Rae, Lawrie, and not too forget the sub Gibson

The Team,one afternoon at Hampden,humbled Celtic and won the cup.

Posted by: mitchell 18th Jul 2011, 07:20am

And for the record it was a great game.

I remember going to one night time game at firhill when Davie McParland was still playing.
Thistle won courtesy of a magnifecent diving header scored by Neilly Duffy?, problem was he didn't head the ball in, it came via a punch on the ball into the goal, long before Marradonnas "hand of God" HaHa

I agree with you there is a place in the premier league for the Thistle, they could make their own headlines without worrying about the rest of Glasgow.

Posted by: Jupiter 18th Jul 2011, 09:07am

Dave,I remember Neil Duffy well.A diminutive chap with blond wavy hair and a great favourite.

As long as we don't get relegated i'll be happy, the first division is a great league, top can beat bottom, open attacking play from both side, fans can have a pint with opposition fans after the game. And the good thing about not being promoted, we wont have the Bigot Brothers calling twice a season. C'mon the Jags, there's only one team in Glasgow.

Actually i just laughed you off, but then it dawned on me you are quite pathetic, not only do you go out your way to wind up Rangers fans (and in some cases Celtic fans) on the Old Firm Site, but to actively seek out Thistle fans to gloat about a result from 4 days ago beggars belief. The germans have a word for someone like you Schadenfreude, if you don't know what that means get someone to explain it to you. It's people like you who get Celtic F.C a bad name.

Read the post in this thread mentioning beating Celtic more than four days ago, sort of gloating to me.
Your post is very insulting, and exagerated lies, I take it you must be a bit of an ARSCHLOCH! mad.gif

Posted by: JAGZ1876 10th Aug 2011, 06:10pm

The 4 days i was talking about was your gloat about Thistle 0 -Dundee 1, as well you know, as to your reply with the injured "It wiz you'ze yin's that started it" is poor to say the least. As for the post about beating Celtic, i had to look back and found #21 on the 18th of July, Jupiter (by his own admission not a Thistle fan) reminiscing about a game from his childhood (hardly gloating).
As for being a bit of an Arschloch, tell me what that means and i may answer you.
It's embarrassing to think that all the people you have met in Las Vegas will think you are typical of Glasgow & Celtic F.C, go back to the Old Firm board and let the eloquent Glasgow Girl take you under her wing and keep you on a short leash.

So sorry to hear that Irrie, I don't remember him as a player, but do remember him as a manager of St. Mirren, Dunfermline Ath, Dumbarton. I think he took The Sons to a semi final Against Celtic, and suffered a narrow defeat.

When you were objecting to the use of a German word i thought you were having a go at me for the use of the word Schadenfreude, which means, taking pleasure in other pain. I didn't realize you were reffering to Arschloch, as i was unaware at the time that this was an insulting German word (i do now, i suppose the clue was in the first 4 letters) So not being fluent in foreign sweary words i though you were both having a go at me Once again my sincerest apology's guy's.

Posted by: andypisces 12th Aug 2011, 01:14pm

Sorry glasgow girl but ref assault is not a joke. I used to handle discipline for anyone accused of assault against refs.It is a cowardly attack.We lost quite a few refs who retired because of this and that was a detriment to a sport that was then trying to get a hold in canada...back then the player was suspended for life and deservedly so.
When i was training as a ref i was told that we should not hit back. I told them that the moment i was assaulted they had my resignation as i was for sure hitting back . They laughed and made me a ref anyway.

Posted by: JAGZ1876 12th Aug 2011, 01:46pm

Much respect to the ref, he was holding his own till he got out numbered (whatever happened to the good old square go). He can referee a Thistle game any time. Andypisces, i don't think Glasgow Girl was making a joke about a ref being assaulted, but i couldn't watch it without smiling. When your a ref it come's with the territory.

Posted by: Glasgow Girl 12th Aug 2011, 02:34pm

it looks like not much has changed to the ground with what looks like the old main stand from the 50s and 60s still there?

yes dave i used to stand at the end on the right of the photo and get lifted over the turnstiles when i was a kid and keep my money for a pie and bovril thumbup.gif i remember going to kircaldy to see them playing raith rovers after the game i was outside and big john fairbairn goal keep took me on the team bus and brought me back to firhill a wee photo of the great johnny mckenzie and of firhill in the fifties

Johnny Mac was my absolute fave player. I had a wee budgie and i called it johnny mac. He was a great right winger. P)uskas after the game against him and hungary said the johnny was as mgood astanley mathews

About a year after Scotland played Hungary at Hampden they went to Hungary to play. The story goes that Puskas said that Scotland must have a great team if they could leave a player like Johnnie Mac out.True or not I dont know but I believe it.

I was standing in the main covered terracing and like everybody else there good a good view of his 'goal' laugh.gif

Dave, the main stand is the only remaining part of the ground as you would have known it, the other two stands are new builds, and the south terrace has been grassed over and is known to the fans as The Bing.

Queens Park 4 V Partick Thistle 5. We Were 4-3 down with less than 4 minutes to go then scored twice before full time, entertaining game, the Spiders can count themselves very unlucky.

If the rest of the season goes like this i'll be very happy wink.gif

If i remember right the first game back after about a 2 month freeze was at Love St. Dont think we won a game from then till the end of the season and still finished 3rd. Honestly think we would have won the league. Was it Willie Thornton who was manager at the time.?

Your correct irrie, a bit before my time but the Jags finished third in 1962/63 under Willie Thornton, we also finished third in seasons 1947/48 & 1953/54 under David Meiklejohn, those two seasons were probably way be before you and andypisces time as well.

Morning Dave, you're right we did get a bit carried away but the Scots/Canucks and myself are as passionate about hockey (Ice) as we are about fitba.

I don't suppose Ice Hockey is popular in SA or is it?

Anyway two of us are Thistle fans and the other two are half Thistle fans.

Back on topic, we can equal or best ever start to a season of 6 consecutive wins if we can beat Dumbarton at Firhill on Saturday, the record was set in season 1975/76.

Cowdenbeath 0 - 1 Partick Thistle: Thistle secure first final for 41 years.

Partick Thistle reached their first national final since their famous 4-1 League Cup success over Celtic in 1971 with a hard-fought Ramsdens Challenge Cup semi-final win over First Division rivals Cowdenbeath yesterday. The win came courtesy of Steven Craig’s solitary goal.

Spot on Jagz1876, it was poor, wasn't it? What made it worse though was that my daughter came with me for the first time in decades as her brothers were otherwise engaged - it'll be another few decades before she comes back after that.

Posted by: JAGZ1876 4th Nov 2012, 11:01am

I'm sorry your daughter had to witness that dross Eddy, what was Steven Craig thinking of lashing out like that when we had already won a free kick (his father would have had more sense than that), i think we all thought it would be a bit of a goal fest given our non league opposition although you would have thought they would have learned their lesson after last years game against Culter.

Try to talk her into going to the Dunfermline game next week, top of the table clash, better atmosphere, and back to playing the way we have this season (hopefully).

By the way Eddy, the draw for the next round is made on Monday at 2.30PM, another home draw would do just fine thumbup.gif

Better be careful with comments like that Jagz, the lads from the east end are a wee bit on the sensitive side when it comes to size of the crowds tongue.gif

Anyway don't you know that the SPL is "booming" and making large profits rolleyes.gif since Rangers left according to the Dundee U. chairman!!

Glad to see the "Jags" going back to wearing the old strip, funny, when I think of them, it's always with them wearing the red & yellow. They are playing well so I hope the crowd continue to increase. "Mon the Harry Rags"

It was never a case of not wearing the Red and Yellow through choice Mac, it was a production problem with the manufacturers (Puma) that caused a delay in the new home strips being delivered.

Hello JAGZ1876

It's me, Danny Harris, coming to this topic to haunt you!

Thanks for your questions regarding my Granny and my Dad.

I don't have any record of how much she was paid for washing and ironing the Partick Thistle strips. It is safe to say she would have been paid 'washers' if you will excuse the pun, because my first wage as an engineering tradesman in 1952 was 5.00. So she would probably have been employed when Thistle first moved up to Firhill from Partick. My Dad was born in Firhill Road in 1909, so he was a lifetime Jags supporter, like his father before him.

I remember seeing one of my Dad's season tickets a few years ago, so I will have another search for it. He died in 1959 at the age of 50, so obviously this season ticket will be from the fifties.

It was actually my grandfather who took me to see my first footbal match at Firhill. It must have been about 1934 or 1935, prior to me starting school at Oakbank School in 1936. I know this because my grandfather never tired of telling people that I asked him what that man was doing in the tent. That man was Jerry Dawson, the famous Rangers goalkeeper.

He would rattle off the names of some Thistle greats, long before my time, but unless I see their names being referred to in some publications, I keep fogetting them

One or two Thistle characters my Dad and I both had the pleasure to see, were players like Peter 'Ma Baw' McKenna. If a team mate wouldn't pass the ball to him he would just go up and take it off him. I kid you not!

Another was Jimmy Mc Gowan. A wonderful servant of Thistle's at right back. He used to get a cheer all to himself if he kept the ball in the park! I went to his testimonial game in the 1950's It was a full house.

I could go on, but I better stop, and end by saying that I saw the great Liverpool manager, Willie Shankly, play as a guest for Thistle towards the end of World War II, and I was at the match which changed Andy Kerr from being a top class defender into a forward. He was playing right back for Thistle against Hearts, who had a great team in those days. Andy got injured and played on the left wing. Substitutes weren't allowed in those days. He scored two goals and the game ended 4-4. He went to Kilmarnock shortly after that and played centre forward.

I know I said I would shut up, but I must finish with this wee story. I actually played for a five a side team in the early 1960's One of my team-mates was the great Thistle international winger, Johnny McKenzie. Eat your heart out all you old Partick Thistle fans! Hey Hey!

Regards to all

Danny Harris

Hi DannyH I remember all the players you mention. My da and granda started taking me to Thistle games in the early 50s and i have been a fan ever since. My da went to Oakbank probably just before you. Cheers.

Great post DannyH, you should try to get a photograph of your dad's season ticket book on here (Although i'm still in the dark about how to post pictures on here) and can you remember the opponents and score in Jimmy McGowan's testimonial?

Posted by: DannyH 21st Nov 2012, 12:09am

Hello Again Jagz1876

This game was played in the mid-1950's, so I have forgotten some important facts.

I can't remember the score, but I am sure the guest opposing team was a Glasgow Select team, and not all necessarily players who were still playing first team football. I remember a very overweight, George Young of Rangers fame playing, and a young wing half who still played for Third Lanark, named Kelly. This guy could run for 90 minutes and still look fresh. He had the well deserved reputation of being a human dynamo. Also in that team was a Celtic player. I am sure he was Neil Mochan. What I do remember about him was that he came on to the pitch looking immaculate, played a great intellegent game, and finished the match without a hair out of place!

It was one of those games that nobody cared about the result. We were all there, including all the players, to let Jimmy McGowan know that we all loved and respected him. There are not many present day players who get the same affection from supporters and players from all the other Glasgow Clubs. It was a privilege to have been there.

Regards to All

Hello Elma

Jackie Husband was one of my favourite players too. He was one of the longest throwers taking a shy. Apparently he was a heavy smoker, something like 40 cigarettes a day!

One of the things that annoys me about record books such as the Evening Times, Wee Red book, is that he is listed as having only one International cap when he played for Scotland against Wales in 1947. I know that World War II Internationals didn't count towards a players caps, but Jackie played left half and I am sure Hugh Brown of Partick Thistle played right half in the first International against England after the war. It was known as the Victory International, and was played at Hampden.

Jackie took a free kick well out from the English goal. Willie Waddell of Rangers, outjumped the English defence and headed it down to Jimmy Delaney of Celtic, who thumped it into the net. Scotland won the game 1-0.
Jimmy Delaney won medals with Celtic, Manchester United and either in Wales or Ireland (perhaps both).When he finished his footballing career he finished up working as a labourer in Ravensgraig steel works. Like many of his generation, including Jackie Husband, he would have retired as a millionaire if he had been paid the type of money some present day players receive.

Partick Th 2 - Livingston 0. A win is a win, not the best game of the season, made to work for the 3 points but can now look forward to next weeks cup tie against the Pars.

Winter is well and truly here, once it got dark the temperature plummeted......BBBBBRRRRRR......looking out the long johns for next week.

jackie husband went on to be the trainer and massue at the jags after he finished his playing career when i was at possil ym they sent us to firhill whith any injuries and jackie fixed us up and after sent us to the woodside baths for a wee bit of exercise in the water great man

Posted by: Dimairt 25th Nov 2012, 07:51pm

I agree with JAGS1876, It wasn't our best performance, especially in the first half but we took control in the second and won comfortably in the end. Credit to Livie too for playing a passing game - no blootering it up the park, looking for breakaways or cynical fouling.
We've won all our home games - looking forward now to next Saturday's cup-tie against Dunfermline. 'Mon the Jags!

I've never thought of that before Dave, our kids obviously get Summer and Christmas holidays but with your Summer in South Africa clashing with Xmas do the SA kids get time of in your winter and if they do what is the reason?

Hi Jagz, the main holiday for the kids is now until maybe the 14th Jan, with most of the companies closed from the 14th Dec until maybe the 7th Jan.
the school terms here are different with every province setting their own time tables with most of them breaking up at least three times a year for different periods of time.

I would hate to have a traditional sit down Christmas dinner now, its been so long since we did that normally its a get together with friends at one of the houses that allow the kids or should I now say Grandkids to swim in the pool while we all sit around the BBQ talking nonsence.

If we do go away its normally Christmas day on the beach.

Well it wasn't dull was it? I was pleased at the way we came back to win at the end after gifting them their two goals. Archie is noticeably slower these days and couldn't cope with the SPL, could he?
I thought the referee was awful, I usually refrain from criticizing the man in black - no , honestly - but that was poor.

So, we're not top anymore, but we're still playing well so no panic, i don't expect Morton to last the pace, they were top last season until we beat them 4 - 0 in the Friday night game then they fell away, i still think it will be between us and Dunfermline.

In reply to your question about SPL clubs not having a go against the old firm Eddy, (The Rangers thread) we are as guilty of this as any other club.

I remember we were playing Rangers away in an SPL fixture in the early nineties and only had two attacks in the whole game, on both occasions the Rangers defence were all over the place but Lambie was content to have the entire team camp in our own half letting Rangers constantly attack us, we eventually lost 3-0, but i would rather lose 5-1 having a go than 1-0 and not crossing the halfway line.

The reason so many teams in the SPL play this way against the ugly sisters is the fear factor of relegation, this is why i have wanted an enlargement of the leagues for the last twenty years, to give clubs who have no chance of going down a reason to play entertaining football without looking over their shoulders.

Our more entertaining performances against the OF have came in cup ties where we have been in a lower division so we could play more open football (have a go) this is what The Rangers are experiencing in the the 3rd division, football with no fear of relegation.

At least, that's my take on the matter.

Have a great 2013 Eddy.

Ally.

Posted by: Dimairt 1st Jan 2013, 05:52pm

Interesting point Ally and fair to say that we've been as guilty as any in this respect - Bertie Auld era anyone?
I think though that two things have to happen for these cup-ties: 'the big team' has to be complacent and the underdogs properly motivated. For example: Liverpool v Wimbledon - when will Wimbledon ever be in an FA Cup Final? - and of course, Jags v Celtic in '71 - remember Lou Macari's comments?
Just in case anyone has forgotten, here's a wee reminder of how it can go.
All the best to you Ally.

Disappointing to lose such a late goal, but even with ten men we should have been able to keep them out, two points lost that could have had us joint top.

Still, i suppose most of us would have taken where we are at the moment (two points off the pace with two games in hand) if we had been asked before a ball was kicked this season.

We must start winning away, starting at Dumbarton next week.

Well i suppose Dunfermline losing lessens the blow slightly, but was it just a bad day at the office Eddy, or are the wheels coming off, 1 point out of 6 in our last two away's that we should be winning if we expect to win the league unsure.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 13th Jan 2013, 03:50pm

Every team, including the eventual winners, will go through a rough patch, at the moment it's us.We started well, playing our usual game (keep it on the deck, move it about, retain possession, be patient) and created three great chances that had fans on their feet howling "Goa...ya ******* keeper," as their keeper pulled off three great saves. I thought we'd a chance when he went off injured - he got a very sporting round of applause from most Jags' fans. The stand-in keeper was nowhere near as good but we didn't really test him.
The first goal, sportingly scored for them by us, was a farce but it came about through an inability to clear the area.
Thereafter, it was time-wasting and every man behind the ball for them while we laboured at breaking down their defenses. The substitutions made little difference.
Positives? Well, no red cards - well done ref, by the way, for not blowing at every wee foul but pulling play back when advantage was lost; Sinclair was great and we've got Fox back.
With two games in hand - Cowdenbeath and Hamilton - and Dumfermline losing too, the title isn't lost; a good win against Falkirk next Saturday should steady the ship.
'Mon the Jags!

Interesting full-page article on the Jags in today's Herald. It's good to see that we're getting regular coverage in the Herald and Times.
Looking forward to tomorrow's game especially as my youngest son is bringing a friend who supports Falkirk.

Nice good newstory about probably everyones favourite other team will be good to see them back where they belong.

Posted by: JAGZ1876 19th Jan 2013, 07:11pm

Partick Th 4 v 1 Falkirk. Great result, if not performance, we've played better and lost so i'm not complaining, good to see last weeks OG didn't affect Balatoni as he surprised us all with two goals, two also from Erskine, his second being the best.

Two back to back games with Cowdenbeath next, we have got to be looking for six points.

Despite being home for over an hour my legs are still numb with the cold, maybe there is something to be said for Summer Football After all unsure.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 20th Jan 2013, 12:36pm

4-1 eh, with some great goals to look forward to on JagsTV come Tuesday. It was obvious from the start that there wouldn't be a repeat of recent away performances - they were fast and direct, passing well and forcing the Falkirk defence into errors when they had possession.
It was good too, to be back at the North Stand after last week's library-like atmosphere. Like JAGS1876, I was frozen through by the end and allowed myself to leave early since we were winning.
Back on track? Yes.

What's your thoughts on tomorrow's game JAGZ? Easy win or hard work like the last time they were at Firhill?

Durachdan,

Posted by: JAGZ1876 25th Jan 2013, 01:14pm

Hi Eddy, as i said on my post on Saturday night i am expecting full points over our two games with Cowdenbeath, it won't be easy as our two previous games against them have proven with only one goal seperating them, but i think we should start looking to score as many goals as possible against the so called smaller teams as i think that goal difference will be crucial this season with Dunfermline, Morton ourselves and Livingston now creeping into the mix.

For this reason i would have Erskine and Craig up front with Doolan on the bench, i would stick with last weeks team that started against Falkirk with Welsh replacing Lawless with Muirhead back at Right back.

Sticking my neck out eddy i will predict 3-0 Jags.

Red Yella Army thumbup.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 25th Jan 2013, 08:53pm

Agree about racking up the goal difference but the Blue Brazil have proved difficult to break down. I'm sure we'll win but will settle for a 92nd minute og, a soft penalty or a blatent offside goal by Archie on his big day.
'Mon the Jags!

Durachdan,

Eddy

I really enjoyed the game: lots of goal-mouth incidents; came from 0-1 down against a stubborn, battling team; Jags still playing good, passing-game and Conrad did it again, scoring from a corner.

Certainly JAGZ, my son's mum is a Buddie and we were at the Saints Cup Final win against Dundee United in 1987. Might be going to this one too; we went to all the "neutral" finals in those days eg Motherwell v Dundee Utd, Aberdeen v Hearts.
We don't have Cup upsets as they do in England - what about this weekend's results down South? - they're all good for the game.

Can't make it to today's big game. Jags must win, a draw is no good and a defeat would mean our main challengers would have taken nine points from us - you can't win the League like that.
The omens aren't good either: no games for the last two weeks, first game under new management and playing a Morton side on a good long run of wins.
'Mon the Jags.

Or am I just being pessimistic?


Worried, Maryhill

Posted by: JAGZ1876 16th Feb 2013, 06:32pm

Morton 2 V 2 Partick Th, I would have taken a draw before kick off as we have three games in hand, but disappointed to have lost a two goal lead and another red card as well, but after the lay off at least we didn't lose.

It's been years since i was last in Cappielow and it hasn't changed one little bit.

It's still a S***hole tongue.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 17th Feb 2013, 03:54pm

Disappointed at losing a two-goal lead and a chance to narrow the gap but we're not out of it yet, please ignore yesterday's post.
We were at Cappielow earlier in the season, I couldn't believe that they are allowed to trade in those conditions: the entrance is awful, there's no cover for away fans, the catering is a joke and toilets are a health hazard - and sited next to the catering van!

Eddy

Will be at Firhill on Tuesday night.

Your a braver man than me Eddy, i stayed well clear of the toilets but could still smell them, or maybe that was the burger van laugh.gif

Three points a must on Tuesday then again on Saturday against Airdrie thumbup.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 19th Feb 2013, 01:06pm

We should win tonight - see first clip - but Hamilton were tough to break down in the away fixture - see second clip. I expect them to play with everyone behind the ball, hoping for a quick breakaway, their centre-forward is pretty nippy and should they score first (!), they'll start time-wasting.
The Jags are a better side, no doubts about that (in my unbiased opinion) and will win. Looking forward to another Conrad specialty tonight too.

A hard-fought win, 1-0, thanks to a second-half penalty. We played well, created all the chances but Hamilton defended well and their goalie made a couple of excellent saves.
The gap is now five points, we have two games in hand and while Morton play Dunfermline this week, it's still in our own hands.

Nothing more to add to Eddy's spot on summary, another three points at home to Airdrie on Saturday will be most welcome.

Another win today. well done the new management team. Two games, two wins, two goals and none conceded. It adds up to six points

Posted by: JAGZ1876 23rd Feb 2013, 06:34pm

Partick Thistle 1 V 0 Airdrie, Just thawing out, scrappy game we gave the ball away too much, too many fouls, but what a belter of a goal from Chris Erskine must be goal of the season, with Morton winning then 3 points on Tuesday at Cowdungbeath tongue.gif is a must.

Posted by: Dimairt 24th Feb 2013, 02:06pm

As with the Hamilton game mid-week, this turned into a bit of a scrap. I thought we played our normal game in the first-half but changed to hopeful punts in the second before Erskine's fine goal brought relief to the North Stand.
Why though do we always play towards the dead-end of the ground in the second-half? I thought the players would get a lift from playing to the always-vocal North Stand fans, especially when things aren't going well.
Morton don't have a game next Saturday, so wins at Cowdenbeath on Tuesday, one of our in-hand games, and Saturday against Dunfermline would take us above them.

I used to prefer the JH for an overall view but now prefer the North Stand for the atmosphere. ( No slight intended on fellow Jags fans ) It was a cracker from Erskine though, wasn't it? Look forward to seeing it on the club site but this'll do for now.

I checked the score on the BBC website at 10.00 pm and couldn't believe the 2-1 scoreline. After taking a medicinal dram, I looked at the club's own page to see that the match had been abandoned. More medicinal drams followed.
Lucky escape? With more than twenty minutes left to play, we should have been ok, shouldn't we? It does suggest though that most, if not all, games are going to be battles from now on. We all loved the great, open , entertaining goals-galore football at the start of the season but it's heads down stuff hereafter.

It's getting to the stage of the season where we have to forget the entertaining football and win ugly, i would happily settle for dour 1-0 wins from here on in than entertaining 4-4 draws.

I still think Morton will hit a slump irrie, and hopefully our goal slump will come to an end today.

3-0 to the Jags thumbup.gif

Posted by: Dimairt 2nd Mar 2013, 01:33pm

I'll be staying close to the wireless this afternoon, hoping for a decisive win. We won both league fixtures earlier in the season and, with their financial woes on top of everything else, should win again today.
I'd like a repeat of the clip below Archie but will settle for a late winner, dodgy penalty, blatant offside or an o.g.

Just out of interest Eddy i looked up the result for that match and can only presume the match was postponed as no game shows for that date, however that was a horrendous winter so it was no surprise really.

The rearranged fixture was played on Wednesday 17th April 1963, sadly we lost 1-4, but i love looking at old programmes and photos, one day i will figure out how to post pictures on here.

Hopefully the Accies will do us a wee favour tonight by taking something off Morton.
