  1. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    Sean Dyche. I’ve heard that one before in the Archibald Book of Sycophancy. I’ll raise you 2 much more relevant examples. Britton and Whyte. Relegated from top flight and given another season. Consecutive relegations followed. Dick Campbell. Relegated from First Division and was sacked after a total of 2.5 seasons with a side seriously threatened of relegation back to Second Division again. Rewarding the failure of a manager who has been better supported financially and logistically than any other than any other at Thistle over the last 20 years isn’t really inspiring stuff for next season, is it?
  2. Looking like a duck and quacking like a duck like the consecutive relegation sides I saw 2003-04 (finished on 26 points in top flight, which we havn’t managed this season yet) and 2004-05. It’s done and dusted.
  3. The shit has been sprayed all over the porcelain and now flushed away

    It’s pretty frustrating to see your club and its players pretty evidently accept relegation, with only a one point gap with 5 games to go. Back to the Wilderness for us. Kudos to the fans today, dignified stuff. Archie, Osman, Barton to leave over the Summer and I might muster some enthusiasm for next campaign.

    We’ve already been behind him for more than enough you moron. If he was an ex-Old Firm player he’d have been chased out of Firhill months ago.

    Well, he ain’t going anywhere guys. Beattie et al will have decided that Archibald stays regardless of relegation, and they aren’t going back on that decision now. He’s only going if we are propping up the Championship table this time next year. And I’ll probably still renew my season ticket, fool that I am. Tacit acceptance of failure #notsocuddly

    I’ve thought for a while that he could b a good replacement for Archibald.
  8. So this relegation thing, it’s happening eh?
  9. Partick Thistle 2017/18 thread

    Back on topic re: manager. I think Archibald has voided large chunks of patience this season with a significant proportion of the Thistle support. Particularly after the disastrous recent results v Dundee and Hamilton. I think the goodwill would only be regained with some incredible run of form - e.g. winning half of the remaining games - it isn’t going to happen. It’s difficult to see how he “proves me wrong” from here on in. The thought of 6th/7th in the Championship (and worse is possible) with Archibald still as manager next January is a pretty soul-destroying thought. If recent reports of wage bill comparisons are at all accurate, we have underperformed badly this season and that is bad management of the squad. ”Who would we get in?” is a well-worn excuse that I have heard Thistle fans using back in the days of Collins, Britton & Whyte and Campbell. As any club would do, you see who applies.
  10. An adequate squad, but badly managed. Archie out, regardless of outcome of this season. Completely fed up of watching Thistle under his insipid management, which is dying a long, slow death.
  11. Which is ironic, because barely any Sevco fans attend church services. As someone who attends a Reformed church, it’s absolutely disgusting that these mutants claim to be somehow aligned to a Christian faith.

    Realistically, Archibald is only getting binned if we are bottom 2 in the Championship this time next year, by which stage you’d have to think The Cult of Archie would be done for the majority of the support. Plenty more results like today to look forward to in 2K18, folks.
  13. Hamilton VS Partick ~D Day~

    Archibald should go regardless of whether we stay up or not - which I think would only be via a play-off now (we’d shit it at Tannadice of course, under Archibald, if we had to play there). Unfortunately, a large number of fans would still think he was the greatest Thistle manager of all time with the greatest squad even if he booted them in the face. Which I find difficult to understand. Although we always have the old favourite “who would we bring in?” excuse.

    Archibald could not unreasonably have been sacked earlier in the season, but I think we’ve made our bed and probably have to lie in it now. Evidence for him being a “good” manager just doesn’t stack up for me, though, despite the persisting cuddly toy fan boy culture. The same things happen all the time; late capitulations, bottling it against any team considered “bigger” than PTFC, terrible performances in cup competitions. He has produced a number of very good results over the seasons, and very bad ones, and I think this season highlights how limited he is. After finishing 6th, I don’t think there is conceivably anything else he can achieve. Some fans don’t have any ambition more than that however, despite a number of similar-sized clubs acheiving far more in recent decades. If he leaves Thistle, he’ll manage in the Championship. I certainly wouldn’t fear any other team managed by him. We need to aim for 10th here this season. I think we have the players to survive, but I’m sure we’ll make it difficult for ourselves.
  15. They really are a strange bunch. Quite like a cult I suppose. It’s difficult to see how they will continue to attract a large support as the 21st century progresses.
