  1. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    Imagine any other Club got relegated. Went full in and kept their Premiership business model. Set a target of getting back to the Premiership in one season, sacked the manager because that didn't look achievable under his stewardship. Gave the new manager the same achievable target, a substantial budget which he only spent a third of, sent the failing playing squad on a weeks holiday and in doing so we ended up surviving in the second tier by the skin of their teeth. Resulting in the failed manager keeping his job but redundancies in the office and a greatly reduced budget to work with in the year ahead. We would be fuckin laughing like f**k at that club. Pissing our pants at such an embarrassing shambles they were.

    On the plus side, it seems we have room for an "Analysis & Recruitment Operative". I assume that wage comes out the Playing Budget.

    Our Club love the old "playing budget will be safe" line, been trotted out for quite a few years. I look forward to the Player Fund being set up again.

    Depends how you look at it. Not using it because it's not cost effective to police small crowds in a whole stand? I'd hope that with the correct marketing, kids go free, a dedicated family stand with pitch side rather than behind the goal views would be something to use to the clubs advantage. If the stand is going to carry the name of a "fan" who gave us done money, I'd like to see it used for the long term benefit and growth of the Club.

    All for the away fans being in the corner of the JHS. I'd hope that they make the Main Stand a permanent Family Stand, using the enclosure for pre match and half time family entertainment.

    he is, and thinks McGinty is world class because he claps the fans

    Who the fck comes out with that sh!t?
  8. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    As you say, you can find any stat to suit your agenda. Through the week demonstrated that. The real skill is banging them up on a Powerpoint and getting folks buy in.

    in the interests of fainess Coulibaly has tweeted that he was never late never mind miss a training session and on the flip side accused Caldwell of being a no show at 5 training sessions
  10. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    on occasion he turned up late for training and didn't attend club engagements.
  11. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    we've dropped 6 points across 5 games under Caldwell giving away goals in the last 15 mins of games. 4 of the games we were drawing and ended up losing, the other we were beating falkirk 1.0 and ended up drawing. we also shipped 2 in the last 15 to dunfermline in the 3-0 defeat i think.

  14. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    No, loaded onto ptfc.co.uk later in the week.
