  1. Partick Thistle 2018/19 thread

    You've just given me a really good idea. My understanding is that we get a lump sum from TTL and a commission after we sell X amount of tops. Haven't you heard? It's Jenga this week. I also took delivery of a jigsaw so don't expect any activity until Thursday. On a serious note, is it possible that you have already renewed your season ticket through your phone? The fact it is saying no additional memberships available would indicate you have already purchased one. If you send the club a note through this page - https://ptfc.co.uk/contact-us/- with the details one of the team can email/phone you back at your convenience once they've had a look at your account. When you say renewed by phone do you mean through ticket site on phone or by calling up? If you called up you *should* either have had confirmation on the phone or an email when it was processed a little later. I like Gary but I think his injury problems have put him back significantly. Going to be weird not to see him buzzing around when pre-season starts on Tuesday. He didn't really star in his loan spell at Greenock Morton and he didn't really look like he had the confidence that he needs to perform effectively. If you can keep him fit and let him play then he should be one of the better players in the division. The ballboys will have some season of chasing after his 30 yarders which don't hit the target though. Plays best as a deep lying midfielder where he can ping one of his on-point sixty yard passed. It's almost four years since he produced THAT performance against Ross County. What a night that was!

    Surely it is better to have a number of interests rather than putting all your eggs in one basket and having your back up option removed in the event you can't get your first choice target(if Halkett is indeed even a target).

    Eight weeks is the optimum growing period I'm led to believe. As we didn't get started until after our play off exploits, eight weeks takes us to around the 17th July. Playing a couple of days earlier wouldn't have been a big deal. Playing a meaningless friendly on it around 10 days before the eight weeks is up would be foolish. Neither our pitch or the one at Tynecastle would be ready, so playing it at Cowdenbeath, where they clearly don't have the resource to dig it up and plant it again every year, gives an opportunity for an open door friendly before the Betfred Cup.

    I'm sure the pitch will have been ready in time for a home game on the 14th July had we been given one.
  5. Partick Thistle 2018/19 thread

    Because Tynecastle and The Energy Check Stadium at Firhill won't be ready to host the game. Hearts are installing a hybrid surface and, as is evident in the photos of Thomas O'Ware's signing, Thistle are re-seeding the pitch and it won't be ready until the 17th of July.

    Not really. Cowdenbeath could have refused to hire the ground on the Saturday to allow them to play a friendly/use it for training.
  7. Good evening all, A few seasons ago I ran a relatively successful Fantasy Football competition for the Premiership. I am looking into the possibility of running one for the forthcoming Championship season, a division that is sure to be fiercely competitive throughout the entire season. The game would be free to all and played on a still to be finalised platform. In essence it will work in the same way as previous competitions that used the Fantastar website - think similar to the popular EPL Barclay's game but a bit more basic. You would pick your 11 players, subject to rules limiting players per team and they would score points on a matchday. Over the course of the season you can make transfers to move on the duds and bring in the on-fire gems. The purpose of this thread is to establish if there would be much interest for people to play the game. With a lack of reliable media outlets reporting on Championship games I'd be looking for a little assistance from a supporter of each club should the game go ahead. All I'd require is a bit of help with bookings and assists to allow the data to be inputted accurately and make sure points tallies are correct. To be clear, I don't need help with inputting it - just with the player identification from someone at the match, although I imagine most clubs social media accounts are now very accurate with this information. There is no guarantee that the game will go ahead. I'm currently looking at two platforms to host it, sadly it seems the Fantastar grassroots element has bit the dust, but at the moment I am just looking to guage interest over people who want to play. Hopefully the poll has worked above and will allow an accurate interest to be determined. Cheers, SLJ

    Stuart Bannigan played about 65 minutes in the last Development League match of the season and seemed to come through it without any problems. I think he's also played in another two bounce games since before the development squad got informed of their release. He was in the squad for the Livingston match on Sunday but didn't make the final cut of 18, which is also encouraging. He needs to come back flying in pre-season but I wouldn't put it past him. McLaughlin has a great knack for being in the right place at the right time and it's true that he bagged a lot at Development League level. When he went out on loan at Stirling Albion, however, he didn't really make an impact for them. I think he is a technically good footballer but don't really think he'd make an impact in the Championship at this time. I've never really understood Lamont as a footballer. He started as a winger before going on to make himself a deep lying playmaker. I think he'll go to Clyde and win the league with them next season. All players were informed by the Club, most on Monday or Tuesday, of their fates prior to the information being made public.
  9. Partick Thistle vs Livingston - Playoff Final

    I don't think there is any particular favour of the Premiership team but I do think that there is an advantage when the team in 11th knows that they are in that spot before game 38. The two teams that are "secured" 11th on the last day of the season have both went down deservedly over the two legs, so does that game of being able to rest players/play in a dead rubber match help them? It's interesting to see that next season's five post split games all fall on Saturdays, so no midweek fixture where the Quarter Final and Semi Final first legs take place. Therefore the team in second place in the Championship will have played an extra game, in that time period, when the final comes around but if you are good enough/want it enough you should prevail over two legs regardless of fatigue IMO.

    Nothing to do with me, I've been on annual leave since Wednesday night. No idea what the hold up would have been.

    Told you not to worry about it
  12. 2018/19 League Cup

    For top seeds they seem to be at home to the second seed and the second of the three teams(in the order they are drawn out). They are away to the first and third of the teams drawn - or at least that is how it has worked for Thistle over the last two years.
  13. Partick Thistle 2018/19 thread

    By my reckoning - aye. I think we'll start at Cliftonhill Airdrie

    Relax. It'll come today. Players with clauses in their contracts would have had a number of days to declare and sign if they were staying or going. Wouldn't want to announce it before the deadline expired until everyone has made their decision.
  15. Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons

    Jason Krones was terrible but Thistle made him look like Beckenbauer when we played in April.
