According to a jags fan who claims to be in the know (and to be fair he has a decent track record)  we had a verbal agreement but then Montrose looked to try and interest other teams such as Dundee United, St Mirren etc to get more money which then in turn saw the deal fall apart.

No that’s not how inheritance tax works. It’s paid by the executors on the estate as a whole, not as such by any would-be beneficiaries (if indeed we assume that the Weir will does in fact provide that Partick Thistle or any body connected with it should be a beneficiary).

There might, I suppose, be a scenario under which there is pressure to preserve (or even to liquidate) some of the Three Black Cats’ assets, so as to maximise what is available to be distributed to other beneficiaries after the payment of inheritance tax.

The fact that TBC has been designed as a vehicle to protect a lot of Weir’s financial activity probably suggests there are tax efficient arrangements connected with it.

Whether the shares TBC holds in Thistle will be transferred to another entity, on what terms and at what cost will ultimately depend on:

(1) What legal obligations TBC has already undertaken regarding the transfer of those undertakings and whether those are still enforceable 

(2) To what extent the will makes arrangements for what happens to TBC

(3) To what extent those arrangements are compatible with other commitments in the will or other obligations of the executors of the estate

(4) What any party ending up with a beneficial interest in TBC ends up deciding to do with it and its assets.

Effectively it could be tied up in courts for years

What in January?

Don’t think Kerr is keen on it but if we got a replacement then I wouldn’t be against it provided we got some sort of fee.

Not too keen on helping Thistle try and stay up though.

Sorry bud. Was misinformed. Seems it's a summer deal.

Hearing Jordan Houston is coming your way.  Good luck!

I take it that it’s just a loan?


Three and a half year deal

Colin Traynor Weir, aged 72, died peacefully on 27th December 2019 after a brief illness. A loving father, and much loved by family and friends.

The funeral service will take place at Partick Burgh Hall, Burgh Hall Road, Glasgow at 11.15am on Tuesday 14th January 2019, to which all are invited. There will be a private cremation thereafter.

Prior to this, the cortege will stop at Firhill at 10.30am to allow Colin a final visit to his beloved Partick Thistle.

Family flowers only, please, but donations can be made in lieu to the Partick Thistle Charitable Trust.

A Scottish patriot, philanthropist and Jags man to the end.

Rest In Peace, sadly missed.

We shall see, but I have read that his estate could be stuck in courts for a while.

I take it you have never heard of 'Jarndyce -vs- Jarndyce'!

Is there actually any point to having a transfer window for teams below the Premiership? 🤔

I'm beginning to think not...

Am I the only one who thinks that Shea Gordon is utter dogshit? To his credit he does pop up with a vital goal or two, but take that away from his game and he's like playing with a man down.

Purely for the fact that they don’t have Tommy Robson in the “punt immediately” category, it’s a lot of complete pish.

Did Gary Caldwell make that on PowerPoint?

Nope, as with his interview he got someone else to do it 😉
