  1. We're scraping the barrel with our choice of match commentator, he repeatedly said we were playing Peterhead the other week when we were actually playing Cove. It's a riddy.
  2. Don't want to get too carried away, given the quality of the opposition, but when we actually deploy attacking players we look a much more threatening side. Tiffoney gives us something we have sorely needed from the start of the season, pace and directness, Sena was a bit ropey again tonight but think that's down to him trying too hard to keep his place in the side with the restart. Hopefully this is finally lift-off for Rudden, been far too many false dawns with him.

    Been doing a blog on my career with Thistle over here Almost done with season one at the time of writing.
  8. Jimmy McMullen Walk in Manchester's Moss Side is named after the 1928 Wembley Wizards captain Jimmy McMullan. Played for Thistle in two spells, left for Man City where he won the FA Cup and was the first-ever manager appointed by Aston Villa. https://www.streetcheck.co.uk/postcode/m144jg I actually wrote an article for my Thistle podcast's website, which is also available here: https://marcjwallace.medium.com/the-wembley-wizard-3aa926aee563
  9. Multiple encouraging individual performances today, something we need to be having as a bare minimum if we are to be serious about challenging for the title. Graham has been outstanding since he joined, never mind so far this season, though Murray had his first really good game today as well. Foster was reassuring at the back, Sena was terrific and Williamson and Penrice really did well overlapping. Was worried that Cardle's booking for a dive [which was not a dive] might cause us some issues but glad that it did not. Finally, I thought we could have had another couple of penalties at least, in addition to East Fife's early free-kick probably being a penalty, a rather terrible officiating performance I must say.

    Ligue 1

    The draw for the round of 32 of the Coupe de France took place on the 6th and it brought out some interesting ties. JS St.-Pierroise's reward for winning at second tier Niort is a trip to 4th tier Epinal, certainly have a chance of winning that. PSG are away to Lorient, Bordeaux travel to third tier Pau, Marseille are at Granville, Lille travel to fifth tier Gonfreville, Strasbourg face Angouleme and Angers travel to Rouen, who will fancy putting another Ligue 1 side on their arse, There are two all Ligue 1 ties as Dijon host Nimes and Nantes host Lyon while there is an all-fifth tier tie between Prix-le-Mesiers and Limonest. Full draw: (Level of Division) Pau (3) v Bordeaux (1) Granville (4) v Marseille (1) Epinal (4) v St. Pierroise (Reu) Red Star (3) v Nice (1) Prix-le-Mesiers (5) v Limonest (5) Gonfreville (5) v Lille (1) Belfort (4) v Nancy (2) Paris FC (2) v Saint-Etienne (1) Angouleme (4) v Strasbourg (1) Nantes (1) v Lyon (1) Rouen (4) v Angers (1) Athletico Marseille (5) v Rennes (1) Montpellier (1) v Caen (2) Dijon (1) v Nimes (1) Lorient (2) v PSG (1) Saint-Pryve Saint-Hilaire (4) v Monaco (1)

    Ligue 1

    One more tie to finish up the round and it featured another shock as Rouen, plagued by financial problems in recent times, emptied Ligue 1 side Metz 3-0. Rouen were in Ligue 2 in 2003/04 but were relegated that season and the one after, they made it back to the third tier in 2013 but were again demoted three divisions due to financial problems. The DNCG, [the French taxman as it were] absolutely do not f**k about and are extremely stringent about their financial fair play.

    Ligue 1

    Marseille have ruffled a few feathers my keeping their share of the gate receipts instead giving all of it to their 4th division opponents, Trelissac. Goes against the traditions of the Coupe de France, the big teams always give all the money to the smaller one when they play away. That match between Trelissac and Marseille going to penalties was about as seismic as it got in the Coupe on Sunday, although Brest were beaten by Ligue 2 side Lorient - who are going great guns at the top end of the second tier. St. Etienne breezed past Bastia-Borgo from the third tier, Lille conceded two late goals at Raon but saw it out 3-2, Montpellie squaked through against sixth tier opposition 1-0, Angers beat Dieppe 3-1 and Dijon beat Valenciennes 2-1. PSG beat sixth tier Linas-Montlhery 6-0, but the hosts missed a penalty at 1-0 down and it could have been made interesting, a minute later Cavani scored to kill the tie. Cavani and Pablo Sarabia got two goals each with Adil Aouchiche and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting splitting the other two goals.
