  1. Ah I see now - probably the result of too many beers! Just a waiting game from now and at least we’ll have some idea of where third will take them when we play rather than Group A who will finish first but can go to three different places based on what happens over the following couple of days. That’s the one bit about this tournament I don’t like, fans will be ripped off to travel to the next round as it is last minute plus the quarantine restrictions returning from Europe means, I think, no one can actually go to all their countries games without some sort of quarantine?
  2. At the risk of sounding like a fool is it pretty much nailed on for Budapest as long as Group D has a 3rd place qualifier or does Switzerland/Turkey getting papped out mean we move up automatically to the Seville slot? At which point I get confused why Hampden is even an option with three groups in front of us and only two dropping out!
  3. If we do get third place in the group, where are we likely to play our round of 16 game?
  4. Liam Lindsay was considered for the qualifiers in Sept/Oct 2016(the club had to submit forms stating his medical availability etc) but never made the final cut when the squads were announced. In the early months of the 2016/17 season, Thistle were poor and were near the bottom of the league(I think after our opening day win, we didn’t win a league game again until October), so maybe it wasn’t surprising he wasn’t picked after a developing 2015/16 with Thistle. When the qualifiers ended in Oct 2016, Scotland didn’t qualify for the under 21 Euros to take place in the summer of 2017 - at this point Liam Lindsay became ineligible to play competitive games for the Scotland under 21s as he was too old. Liam was obviously a standout for Thistle in the first half of 2017 but I can understand why he wasn’t picked when the focus was on the next campaign when Liam was too old and he wasn’t close to being ready for the senior men’s national team.
  5. Wright signed a two-year contract extension with Rangers earlier this year https://www.rangers.co.uk/article/kieran-wright-signs-new-rangers-contract/4gqmY6Pw6JQZb0rn0cKzo0
  6. Are you sure about that? The guidance I've seen indicates "These numbers do not include any workforce/volunteers (including performers, exhibitors and participants) required to deliver the event, although consideration to physical distancing for workforce should take place, including in any back of house/non-public areas." Which would mean 500 spectators alone with the rest being accounted for as part of the delivery of the event?
  7. In fairness, it is an SPFL contractual post that had to be posted by yesterday so they held it off as long as they could.
  8. Usually an Opta Sports representative attends the game in the press section. We’ve had one at Firhill for every match - data nothing to do with clubs.
  9. Loans needed to be returned to the parent club by 31st March to be able to play for the competitive club in any matches before 10th June. We’ve got the same clause for our guys on loan from Lowland League so if, for example, EK were in the playoff, our guys would have went back to them to play. 31st March is an SFA thing so applies right down to WoS league I think. I’m a bit confused why loans are still being announced today(might just be as simple as paperwork being done last night and announcements just a little delayed).
  10. I don't think that has ever been in doubt? The management team are ultimately responsible for the results on the pitch, like every other club across the world. Not sure what you are trying to get at.
  11. Just to correct you on this Ian McCall has been at every training session since we started back in August. This is categorically wrong. I'm not going to defend or excuse the style of play, but if you think that AA just decides everything the squad do at training, you are completely wrong. I might have picked you up wrong though.
  12. The match officials confirmed after the game that they had only given it for offside as they thought Rudden had touched the initial shot from Penrice(he did swing a leg at it but he missed). Having watched it back, Graham is onside when Penrice hits it but it is really tight - the left back is walking out to the 18 yard line with Graham walking towards goal. The LB's back leg plays him onside when the shot is hit - annoyingly a player is in the way for our camera angle so it can't quite be cleared up as conclusively as that but it definitely wasn't the "clearly offside" position the Airdrie twitter claimed!
  13. Thursday 15th April is a "catch up" date which might be required for Thistle to use if we defeat Cowdenbeath and Dundee United in the Scottish Cup or if, much more likely, Montrose defeat Nairn County and Fraserburgh to play in the Scottish Cup on the 17th April.
  14. I think you are being a bit harsh on Ryan Williamson. He was available for selection in every game up until November 2019 and missed 1 or 2 games with a slightly knock(although it has to be said Kakay was playing him out the team by his own good form). He got his injury in the late stages of the Alloa away game at the start of 2020. He tried to play through it the following week against Dundee United(I think we were linked with about 3 right backs to replace Kakay before we brought in Lee O'Connor to compete with him and had no right back for that game). That game against Dundee United made the injury worse and he missed the rest of the 19/20 season - although he was around two weeks away from a return when the season was called. This season he has been available for selection in every match until he got injured against Peterhead. Two serious injuries aren't what I'd term injury prone.
  15. The planned contingency would, I presume, have been circulated around all 42 clubs at the start of the season. If it is not satisfactory then it should have been challenged/adjusted/changed at the start of the season - the prime issue is running out of games/dates to play them. This could happen in any division so they should be treated equally. If it turns out to be 3-0 forfeits in Prem then it should be same for Champ and L1/2. It is up to the clubs to decide how many they want to play. As a collective they have asked for 22 - the board should have, in my opinion, focused on whether they were allowing the restart date to go ahead and if they were granting the extension for season rather than batting it back to clubs to decide sanctions for an incomplete season since these should already be in place. Why should the consequence of not finishing in L1/2 be different from Prem/Champ? I just think it is a bit unfair to be potentially imposing different sanctions for the same offence(not finishing games) when proposed league finish formats(split) between the prem and L1/2 will be practically the same and I don’t understand why this seems to be a sticking issue and has stopped it moving forward as much as it should have.
