  1. Kris Doolan has never been a player who relied on his pace. He’s never had pace to rely on. He’s scored lots of goals at this level and above because of his exceptional first touch and finishing.
  2. Your favourite ever player

    Jose Luis Chilavert was a hero of mine growing up. A top class keeper who took free kicks and penalties and who was your standard “eccentric” (ie. a fucking looney) South American goalkeeper. Wish he’d played more in Europe so I could have seen more of him in his prime. For an outfield player I’d go with Juan Roman Riquelme. He was an absolute magician who somehow managed to dominate games despite playing at walking pace. Honourable mention to Alessandro Del Piero. Loved him from the days of Football Italia in the 90s and one of my favourite ever football moments was seeing him score the goal that took Italy to the WC final in 06.

    Even outside that appalling statement, it feels like there’s no long term strategy in anything she does; it’s all ‘in the moment’. It’s responding to one issue/person at a time to placate them, with no consideration of if it’ll have to be changed again or contradicted somewhere down the line. A couple of people have complained about being moved from their seats to accommodate Hearts fans? Quick, release a statement saying we'll keep the JHS red & yellow. It’s not cost effective? Scratch that plan a few games later and we’ll do exactly the opposite of what we’ve just told them, but talk about how much money we’ll save instead - they’ll love that! She’s been an absolute disaster. Her and Britton can get right in the fucking sea.

    Both. First time you had the CW, second were in the JH. But yeah, the winner of the United & St Mirren match will probably be the only one to bring over 1000 next season, so it makes a lot of sense. The biggest problem is that it makes the ground look awful on highlights - the stand the cameras face has nobody in them and behind the goal at the city end is that disgraceful mess. Falkirk were in the CW both times...

    Falkirk were in the Colin Weir/Main Stand for both games this season. Behind the goal is the John Lambie (or North Stand). The Jackie Husband is the big stand opposite the Main Stand. Away fans will now be at the north end of that unless they bring enough to justify opening the CW (I’d guess at least 1000 needed now for that to be an option).

    Piast beats Lech 1-0 and claims their first title. Only realised today that Tom Hateley starts at CM for them. Legia could only draw 2-2 with Lubin, so they would have won the title anyway. Only 1 win and 5 points in Legia’s final 6 games - a pretty brutal collapse. Galatasaray come from behind to beat Basaksehir and wrap up the Turkish Super League as well, completing an equally brutal collapse for Istanbul’s most pointless club. Only 2 defeats in the first 27 games, and then only 1 win in the 6 since then.
  7. Kilmarnock v Sevco 5088

    Well done, Killie. Great way for Clarke to sign off. Done an absolutely fantastic job at Rugby Park.

    So sorry that you lads had to endure Martin Woods. Now that scary time in Scottish football where we all have to hope he doesn’t show up at our clubs in the next few weeks.

    Pleased with the Cardle extension. We’re not getting the fittest player around and he’ll almost certainly miss games with injury, but when he does play he’s been very valuable to us. The complete opposite player to Miles Storey, in that his physical attributes are pretty poor but he can actually cross the ball and get shots on target.

    An absolute crackpot, that one. Taking credit for us staying up because of some Microsoft Office slideshow.

    I'd say there's probably some truth on both sides. Can see Coulibaly being the type who believes he's above the level he's found himself at, and wouldn't really make an effort at training. And Caldwell's still commuting from Wigan regularly, isn't he? He's definitely thought "f**k that" a few times.
  12. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    Signings are probably Caldwell's best contribution to the club so far. I still think he's questionable tactically, his interviews are delusional and he generally comes across as pretty similar to Gordon Strachan in that stubborn kind of arrogance that's just annoying to listen to, but overall his signings have been very good. Ally Roy was the only properly shite signing Caldwell made, unless I'm missing someone. Anderson, Saunders, McMillan, Cardle and McDonald all made positive contributions, albeit with some shaky moments mixed in. Mansell was actually pretty effective in his limited appearances. Harkins replacing Erskine was a poor decision, but Harkins is more in the 'what's the point?' department than actually shite. Archie signed Bell, Lennox, O'Ware, McGinty, Scobbie, Jefferies, Melbourne, Gordon, Slater, Ntambwe, Storer, Mutombo, Quitongo. Archie never had a particularly good signing ratio, but that list is fucking grim. Slater gets pass marks, McGinty was 75% shite/25% good, a couple of long term injuries and a pile of utter muck.

    Polish Ekstraklasa penultimate round of fixtures last night. Jagiellonia Bialystok 1-0 Legia Warsaw Lech Poznan 2-1 Lechia Gdańsk Pogon Szczecin 0-0 Piast Gliwice Lechia officially out of the title race, so it’s down to Piast and Legia. Piast 2 points ahead going into the last game, but their superior goal difference is irrelevant as the first tiebreaker in Poland is ‘points gained pre-split’, where Legia were 7 ahead. Piast need to win (H v Lech) or hope Legia don’t (H v Zaglebie Lubin), to clinch the title.

    Wouldn't think there's any reason to worry about the attendance at his testimonial. Especially given what's happened in the past couple of weeks, but even if he was still going to be a Thistle player I'd think there will be a very good turnout.
  15. Partick Thistle 2019/20 thread

    I think Penrice would probably be a better CM than LB, but even if he does end up as a midfielder, he still wouldn’t address the ballwinner issue, as he’s not that type of player either.
