  1. Bobby Walker (1879-1930) pictured in 1901. He scored 124 goals in 328 appearances for The Jambos between 1896 and 1919, collecting 29 Scotland caps along the way - scoring eight goals. His fame was such, that when Hearts travelled to Norway in 1912 on a tour, King Haakon VII of Norway and the son-in-law of Edward VII of England, attended the game as Walker was apparently the King's favourite footballer. Until Steven Pressley surpassed him, he was Hearts most-capped Scottish player.
  2. Hampden Park burns amidst a riot stemming from the belief among both Celtic and Rangers fans that the 1909 Scottish Cup Final between the two sides was being deliberately fixed to line the pockets of the SFA blazers. The cup was withheld that season after the riot and the press compared it to The Battle of Langside that took place nearby in the 15th century. I wrote about it in more detail here.
  3. This weekend sees the return legs of the promotion playoffs for the final place in La Liga. Both ties, however, appear to be settled barring any serious collapses. Girona defeated Almeria, who have Rangers legend Umar Sadiq in their ranks, by three goals to nil while Rayo Vallecano defeated Leganes by the same scoreline. The winners, presumably Girona and Rayo, will face each other over two legs, these take place on the 13th and 20th of June.
  4. Celtic legend Jimmy McMenemy bandages the feet of Mohammed Salim, who played in a handful of games for The Hoops in 1936 as an amateur. Though he never signed a professional deal, Salim was never forgotten at Celtic and when he was ill and subsequently died in 1980, the Celtic board sent his family money. McMenemy's career was incredibly successful , he spent 18 years with Celtic, collecting several league and cup doubles before leaving to sign for Thistle, where he was part of the 1921 Scottish Cup-winning side at 41 years old.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
