    This worked fine the last time we were in the championship, would only think St Mirren if they come down or a big end of season game vs certain teams eg the Morton game in 2013 would necessitate opening the main stand.

    Balatoni is one year older than SOD. League two must put years on you.

    Viktoria went straight up, the authorities are no nearer to solving the problem of feeding 5 regional leagues into the 3 liga so this year they decided three of the 5 regional league winners would go straight up and the winners of the other two would play off for the 4th spot, with the number of teams being relegated from the 3 liga increased to 4. Off the top of my head I think it's Bayern and Wolfsburg u23s that are playing off. So that would be North and Bayern regions. Those two regions plus one other get the automatic place next season. Edit - it is. Chemnitzer, Viktoria Köln and Mannheim all promoted directly

    I'd be pleasantly surprised if we got anyone in on loan this early in the season, the currants haven't even finished *this* season yet so loaning out a player for next season, albeit one who won't be in their first team plans for a season or two (if ever) before they go on their holidays, seems a bit premature. I've been wrong about everything else this close season though so it's almost certainly a done deal.

    Not sure how the setup will work with pulling out of the reserve league- I believe after both arse cheeks and St J we're the 4th team to do so. From the reserve team page on the website there were only 6 players, 2 of whom were freed which leaves Sena (age 20), Wilson (19, turns 20 in June), Ruraidh McIntyre (17) and Evan Galasso (18). Seemingly the under 18s have been doing well on Friday nights though, presume the plan is they go out on loan. Wilson and Sena probably need to break through this year given their age, and I really hope Galasso is good because he's a striker and his name sounds like Golazo.

    This has got better and better as it's gone on, albeit I thought the project unicorn thing was a bit of a mis step. Although was that the first time someone (the deliberately annoying talking head lassie) has said "f**k" on this? Occasionally wondered what the swearing guidelines are - clearly you can chuck in the odd "shite", but I'm not sure we'll see a section called "how big a c**t is he?" next season...
  7. That's Elliott away from Thistle. Not a given he's going to you but seems unlikely he'd knock us back so quickly unless he had something else lined up.

  9. Alan Archibald - 3/10 While hindsight will say he should probably have been sacked at some point in 17/18, I felt he had enough credit in the bank to see out the season. However I thought he should have gone as soon as Livi beat us. Looked absolutely gubbed and summer recruitment was largely disastrous, both in terms of numbers - having 3 outfield subs, 2 of which were teenagers who hadn't started a game at that stage and 1 contract holdout vs Ayr on day 1 was a disgrace- and quality (Bell, Storer, Mutombo, Ntambwe, Melbourne). Managed 3 wins and 5 defeats from 8 league games plus a defeat to East Fife in the challenge cup, even then one of those was against Hartley's Falkirk rabble and one against Morton the day after McKinnon snaked away. The football was soporific and even the staunchest of the Archie backers agreed his time was up. A shame it ended that way and he did far more good than bad for us despite some re-writing of history by his detractors. Gary Caldwell- 5/10 A complex character, and this might have been 6/10 before Thursday. He promised an immediate improvement having allegedly detailed individual plans in his job interview to improve every player in the squad. This did not materialise with only 1 point (Away to an equally dismal Falkirk) from his first 6 games and 5 in his first 10 including the nadir of the season in a 5-1 hounding at Cappielow where Cammy Bell flapped about like an overweight seal. Performances started trending upwards when allowed to bring in his own players in January and ship out some of the accumulated dross. Good use of contacts to bring his mate Scott McDonald out of retirement which basically saved us from back to back relegations. However, he's made a number of controversial decisions, moving on fan favourites Erskine and Doolan , the latter being simultaneously handled dreadfully and causing the most OTT reactions I've seen online from Thistle fans , which is quite an accolade. Also attracting publicity with stunts like the SAS day and the envelopes (I accept that wasn't meant to be in the public domain), some bizarre quotes like "the league table is irrelevant until the final day" and comes across as a very hard guy to warm to, although in his interview yesterday he's fully aware that he's not winning popularity contests. Having done what he's done and said what he's said, I think he'll need to be in the top 2 after 6 or 7 games next year or his jacket will be on a very shaky nail. Actually, I forgot I had a tenner on him at 20/1 to get the job, so bump him up to 5.5/10.
  10. Jobbers of the Season

    The 4 from us should be Cammy Bell, Jack Storer, Miles Storey, and Brice Ntambwe. Forgotten too many other players for other teams but the fat lad Mackin up front for Falkirk under Hartley was hopeless and both Dundee Utd's centre halves in the 2-1 game at Firhill (Connolly in particular) were grim.
  11. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    Kenny Arthur's attracted a crowd of 1900 and Archie got 2600. If you average the ticket cost out at a tenner and once you've paid for police, stewarding etc and the opposition fee (believe the OF now charge a prohibitive amount to send their u19s) maybe about £10k? Obviously the sportsman's dinners and golf days etc raise money as well. As Elliott signed in august 2011 would he not need a 3 year deal to get a testimonial season? Seems unlikely we'd offer that tbh Edit - Do you typically get a testimonial in your 10th year or after 10 years I. E. your 11th season? Doolan signed midway through the season and Archie left for 3 years which makes those too complex for me to count
  12. is hair dye acceptable for men?

    I went bald rather than grey so never had that issue, but about 15 years ago we were down for a piss up weekend in York and I put a James McFadden style red stripe through my hair with cheap spray on dye from Boots. Unfortunately it rained and the dye was not water resistant. A literal red neck.
  13. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    Wouldn't be fussed if Elliott left, can never fault him for effort but he's spent the last 8 years going from being a not very good striker to a not very good winger to a not very good full back. I'll certainly say Caldwell has complete faith in his own ability, whether he's correct or whether it's delusion I'm not sure.

    Flying back from holiday for this.
  15. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    I found the Elliott thing bizarre to mention tbh, especially when he's not a standout player. If I was being churlish I'd also point out that Boyd scored 3 league goals in his only season at this level.
