Tonight seemed a bit of a waste of time considering the club has a lot of vital things to get done, including actually getting some strikers in, to hit the ground running

Aye I heard we were due to sign Rudden and Boyd tonight but couldn’t because Gerry Britton was busy. What a weird thing to moan about.

At the last Meet the Manager event Caldwell spoke often about 'the process' of putting a winning team on the park. Tonight it was interesting to see exactly what that 'process' involved. It wasn't light on detail that's for sure but I found it interesting and informative. I've got a better understanding of Caldwell's methods and approach. I thought he came across well both in football terms and on a more personal level. It's going to take a good start to the season rather than words in a Firhill function suite to win people over but he, and the Club, had a good night tonight.

Aren't you that rednyella poster who had a head's gone resignation from here?

This seems like something he would moan about.

There would be about 8 more paragraphs if it was him.

Glad to hear Caldwell came across well. Doesn't come across as being anywhere near as passive as Archie was when in charge imo.

He has very set ideas on the game all of which were laid bare in the presentation. You get the feeling that if the players dont follow his ideas on the game they will get shipped out fast, like in January. He has a toughness and enthusiasm about him that I like.  Think its time we all gave him a break and got behind him. He is under no illusion that if the team doesnt hit the ground running this season that his job is on the line.

Couldn't attend last night but feed back seems to be fairly positive. Lets hope that the early signings of two players who seem to have been targeted indicate that there is a plan for the new season.

I know that the interviews given by players are never likely to be negative, but Ryan and Shea  both came across as enthusiastic  on Jagzone. The two year deals seem to indicate a bit of forward thinking by the Club.

Ended up going last night, and was impressed by Caldwell, surprisingly enough.

One or two things I didn’t agree with, or were contradictory, such as how we can’t shout from the rooftops about how the aim is promotion, yet that’s what everyone at the club was doing from the moment he took over until fairly recently. Also saying that the team he took over wasn’t capable of high press, or playing the way he wanted, even though we were told that he had an individual plan for every member of the squad at that time.

Regardless though, he did make the squad better in January. Although I don’t think that his style of play was implemented as well as he thinks it was, as we’ve still been pretty brutal at various points since then. If the plan is to play the way we did at Ayr away and QOTS in the last couple of games of the season, then I’m happy enough with that.

Caldwell has bought himself some goodwill from the Thistle support at a moment when he really needed it, but ultimately I’ll be reserving judgement until I see some major improvements on the park come August.

Any detail on why the training ground has been delayed.
I was under the impression that the money was in place and the ground acquired.


Issues with planning holding things up. Didn’t sound too promising.

Delays with South Dumbartonshire Council which seems to be commonplace going by a shout from the audience. I am 50/50 as to whether it will transpire

Looked at phases of game. 3 and 4 are what he worked on first. Then Skippy helped with Phase 2. Phase 1 still a work in process...

Fair play to him for coming out in front of fans to do all that, when I don't think he really had to at all, a nice touch. Sounds like he put a fair amount of time and effort into it as well. Kinda doubt it will do anything to silence the perpetual moaning b*****ds within our support though. 

A thanks to those in attendance for posting up details of what was discussed. 

I think one of the most impressive things from that, was the budget used in January. Ensured survival, but also hoping that's given us quite a sizeable amount to work with going into the start of next season.

I'm not necessarily sure not spending the budget in January is a good thing. I don't think Caldwell was sitting at the beginning of February thinking he's got in the players he wanted without spending the money. I suspect it means we failed in bringing in some of our better targets and now we survived by the skin of our teeth it's a nice soundbite.

Cardle was at our play off match last night and he mentioned that talks were ongoing with Thistle. I got the impression he is confident an agreement will be reached.

Could very well be the case, hard to argue against it. On the plus side however, with Archie we missed out on targets and brought in some absolute shite, with GC we may have missed targets, but he still signed some decent players.
