  1. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    I don't think we have any sellable players if we go down. Under contract for next season are : Cerny, Keown, Spittal, Doolan, Erskine, Barton, Elliott,Edwards, McCarthy, Penrice, and Storey. No-one is paying money for them. Of that lot I'd reckon Cerny (only cos he's settled with a family in Glasgow and will be 33 soon), Spittal, Doolan, Erskine, Eliiott ,McCarthy, Penrice ,and somehow fucking Edwards who will be here forever would stay. We'd probably end up signing one of the permacrock midfielders again as well who are out of contract. You'd assume the Weirs would be starting to look for a return on the investment they've sunk into a black hole our conveyor belt of youth talent if we were in the 2nd tier as well, given that we'll be 4 (maybe even 5?) years into that plan next year.
  2. Hibs vs Thistle

    13 days of build up to the most routine 2-0 home win of all time. Sign me up.
  3. The Cricket Thread

    Well, means other results are irrelevant now, win vs WI and we're through, lose and we're out.
  4. The Relegation Battle

    Also, Miles Storey has scored two goals all season and hasn't scored since October. I would not fancy us in a playoff against anyone that could conceivably be in there.
  5. The Relegation Battle

    I think the bottom two are set and the two head to heads will probably determine who finishes 11th and 12th.
  6. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    We're doing worse than when we had a central defence of Conrad Balatoni and Gabriel Piccolo. Let that sink in etc etc. We're not out of it because of the nature of the split, I thought for ages we needed 5 wins but 4 will do, 37 points should keep us up (unlikely, yes); if they somehow come against Ross County x 2, Dundee , and one of a Motherwell or St Johnstone that are already on the beach we might stay up, but I can't argue with anyone who says we should be relegated for crimes against football. I also think Archie's gone in the summer regardless, from his POV it's probably a shame as he didn't check out when his stock was at its highest.
  7. The Big New York Thread

    When we went last year, if you're just going for the sake of a game at MSG and don't have a massive preference, the cheapest basketball tickets were half the price of the hockey ones, and we figured it would be a better watch from up in the gods as both the players and the ball (I know it's a puck in hockey) are much bigger. Guess it might be getting close to playoff time in both sports though and no idea where any of the NY teams are in the standings which will obviously affect prices.
  8. The Cricket Thread

    Haha. Hadn't realised that we're through if we beat the West indies regardless of the Ireland result. I know it's not the 1980s team but they're still going to be heavy favourites. Capable of brain farts tho.
  9. The Cricket Thread

    Also if we'd polished off UAE quicker the net run rate difference would have been big.
  10. The Cricket Thread

    The nightmare scenario is beat Ireland tomorrow, Windies beat Zimbabwe, we lose to Windies, Zimbabwe beat UAE and we go out on net run rate.
  11. The Cricket Thread

    Ireland getting absolutely waxed which means even if we beat them on Sunday we need Zimbabwe to beat Windies (or us to beat both Ireland and Windies) for us to qualify. Even if Ireland win both games vs us and Afghanistan there's a decent chance they're cooked. Edit - assuming Zimbabwe beat UAE and there's no washouts or ties.
  12. Sweet Potatoes vs Quinoa fc

    Mind there used to be a scramble for away tickets at tynecastle?
  13. The Cricket Thread

    The most likely scenario is we lose both games and go out but having faffed about with spreadsheets, if Ireland beat Zimbabwe and we beat Ireland then we're through. Also wouldn't mind a week's worth of torrential rain in Zimbabwe starting right now tbh.
  14. The Cricket Thread

    Afghanistan win. If we beat Ireland then we go onto 7 which means only Zimbabwe and Windies can finish above us. So I think that means we want Ireland to win tomorrow vs Zimbabwe but also Ireland to lose to Afghanistan in their last match?
  15. The Cricket Thread

    Net run rate always vital.
  16. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    Well, that's that cleared up.
  17. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    My guess that he was responsible for getting the Weirs on board.
  18. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    I'm seeing lots of "he's done a great job" at firhill as chief executive around the Internet but not sure what folk are basing this on? Not saying he hasn't, I'm obviously just not privy to whatever information people are using to come to this conclusion.
  19. Free Agency 2018

    Bills sign AJ McCarron for 2 years. Will still be looking to take a QB in the 1st round. I hope.
  20. Free Agency 2018

    Carlos Hyde to the browns.
  21. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    Likes : Shooting from every angle and distance Rattling the ball off celtic fans Picking up 9 game ban for stoving in a Dunfermline player's head in a reserve game Loves : Being injured Edit : even when he was fit there was a problem with where to play him. His best asset is his range of passing, so ideally he'd be suited to a deep midfield role, but he would give the ball away lots in that position, and if you played him further forward he'd just shoot all the time. Also I don't think he's started a game in nearly 2 years and has had a few aborted comeback attempts. Grateful for that goal at tynecastle, obviously but I think injuries have done for him.
  22. Golfers Thread

    Forgot that was up next. Tiger must be a good each way bet. Not a sentence I thought I'd ever say again. He's 11/2 favourite. Jason day 2nd favourite at 12/1 (bet 365)
  23. Free Agency 2018

    Cordy Glenn traded from Buffalo to Cincy, Bills and Bengals swap order in the 1st round and 5th and 6th round picks. Buffalo up to 12 in the first round. Think it's a matter of time before Bills try and trade up to top 5 somewhere to get their QB (Colts?) As for Glenn, good player but big wage and injured lots last year.
  24. The Cricket Thread

    We can actually do it with one win provided it's against Ireland but we'd need about 6 other results and run rate swings to go in our favour. *if* we beat Ireland and UAE then that means only Zimbabwe and WI can finish above us and from that POV we'd be hoping WI dished out a tanking in that game to tilt the run rate in our favour . Appreciate we'll be large underdogs vs the Irish and Windies.
  25. Still Game & Best Bits

    I thought that was good, though I'm always a fan of Shug which helped.
