  1. Have a few times for the ones you would expect for Thistle in the last 10 or so years. Do think there's a lot of pent-up stuff post-pandemic happening just now and that's probably a factor in why they're happening as much lately.
  2. Any particular reason why Annan aren't using the new SPFL shirt font two years after it changed? Appreciate it's likely cost-cutting but surely something like that is subsidised by the league?

    Just finished my second season with Alemannia Aachen in the German third tier after promotion in my first. A dramatic season that went all the way to the final day, and you can read it all here.
  4. I have, with great misfortune, have seen some absolutely dogshit goalkeepers both for and against Thistle in nearly 20 years going but that boy for Dunfermline today is making a right go for the podium, utter mince.
  5. Immensely satisfying to watch a team batter and batter you and you get the winner with a sucker punch on the counter. McCall correct in assessing that as dugmeat, we've capitulated to teams putting that amount of pressure on us in recent games too.
  6. Manchester City were relegated from the English top-flight in 1937/38, the season after they won the league. They were also the league's top goalscorers that season, a fairly unique acheivement.
  7. He has previous, he spent a good portion of our first game back after the shutdown last season against Cove at Firhill telling us we were playing Peterhead. Guy is one of those part of the furniture types, but he's an abysmal commentator.
  8. If there is one thing that unites most of our support is that the commentator is abysmal.
  9. Utter madness, gutted I'm having to go to bed after that.

    Been doing a blog on my current save in the German fourth tier with 2004 cup finalists Alemannia Aachen who have fallen on some hard times in the last decade or so. I'm about halfway through writing the blog entry for April 2022, you can read everything here. Feedback appreciated, folks.
  11. We started poorly but once we took the lead, we should have been out of sight. The red card for Akinola looked questionable in real time, but seeing it back on the highlights it was utterly preposterous. Then there was the non-award of a card for an Airdrie player pulling down Tiff when he was by him and the goalie, utterly diabolical refereeing.
  12. The BBC Archive posted this today, him being interviewed by Ian Wooldridge about what it felt like to miss out on the 1966 World Cup Final. Honestly worth a watch, a very frank, moving account of a man who felt his life's dream was cruelly taken away from him.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
