  1. Would be a fan of either. I do wonder if the NHS t-shirt launch is a sneaky marketing strategy along the lines of "well this has t-shirt sold better than anticipated and shows how much Jag fans care, so we've now made the design our away top and £5 from every top sold will go to an NHS charity".
  2. Haha never knew that had happened. Not a banter years entry, but mind they were all convinced they were getting Robert Pires and Zinedine Zidane when Le Guen got announced as manager but ended up with Jeremy Clement and Filip Sebo 😂.
  3. It's such a mental take on Scottish football, especially when our one genuinely world class player came from Queens Park! Proper Daily Record phone in pish.
  4. Bollocks. With the exception of the early Berti years, Scotland have produced more than enough good players, its failure of the last decade at least is down to poor management and the defeatest attitude that youve just displayed which hinders us. Do you honestly think Scottish football should have only 22 teams?! Given how well Arbroath and Alloa have performed recently, you can hardly call them half arsed. What about Inverness and Ross County's rise over the past 20 years, are teams like them not worthy of the chance to progress? See Bonnyrigg, Kelty, Brora, Edinburgh City, and Cove Rangers as teams showing genuine ambition in the lower levels of the pyramid. Blaming part time teams for the perceived lack of quality in Scotland is totally passing the buck away from the full time team's piss poor youth development strategies. The duty for youth development lies with full time clubs, the part time clubs are there for the players who just dont quite make it or want to do something else as well. Its a good system if done with the right enthusiasm. Rather than doing his usual Strachan routine of blaming everyone but himself, maybe the technical director of one of Scotland's biggest clubs should be asking what they can do more, rather than punching down and blaming the likes of Albion Rovers for all of Scottish football's woes.
  5. We certainly have. But for what its worth, my opinion was that sacking Strachan was correct at the time due to some of his media comments that were nothing short of fake excuses of a guy who blamed everyone but himself. The worst being about Scotland's genetics holding us back and when he was a pundit at Euro 2016 and kept saying the reason we didn't qualify was we didn't have a Gareth Bale, despite the fact that many of the teams that qualified (Northern Ireland, Iceland, Hungary, Albania, etc.) didn't either. The reason we went backwards was the ridiculous decision to hire Alex McLeish as his successor.
  6. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52797428 Your technical director is a fud.
  7. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52797428 Used to quite like Strachan, but he is monstrously out of touch with Scottish football with attitudes like this. Thank f**k he's nowhere near the Scotland job anymore. Having a go at part time teams for trying to play and survive in the professional leagues and the general product on show even in the Premiership is proper English pundit shite. Scottish football might not have the best players, the most money or the biggest fan bases, but f**k me its's constantly entertaining on almost every level. Give me the nonsense of Scottish football over the soulless English Premier League any day of the week.

  9. I'd happily take the design for our away kit next season. As for the home strip, as long as its better than our Albion Rovers reject strip from this season I'll be happy.
  10. Absolutely not ITK so just specualating here. Is there a chance that some of the Weir money (if we have any) is being taken from the academy and towards general running of the club during this time, hence why we might be in a better position?
  11. Anyone know if we have any good youth prospects that could potentially feature when we return?
  12. It would be pretty negligent for Thistle not to have a relegation clause in any of the players contracts, therefore I fully expect some of our higher earners not have one.
  13. Aye, very possibly. I think next season is a massive one for him. If he does well, his career will be back on track. If he does shite the bed without it, he can say goodbye to full time football in this country I reckon.
  14. You're obviously entitled to your own opinion, but I don't think you can have over half your signings getting pass marks when your team, which has the third biggest budget in the league, finished bottom. If even three or four of our summer signings were average (5/10), we wouldn't have been relegated.
  15. Any summer signings getting more than 4 or 5 out of 10 is nonsense. Reece Cole being maybe the only exception. We were rock bottom for a reason.
