Partick Thistle 2020/21 thread

Recommended Posts

I know none of the mentalists who are convinced we've waited due to the English window closing aren't on here but I can't get my head around their logic.

English teams can still loan players so we've no advantage there, they can still sign free agents so we've no advantage there and we've no money so we aren't paying a fee so no advantage there.  Are they just hoping players who missed out on a big move are just handed over to Thistle for free?

Wasn’t it said at the Q&A that we were waiting for their window to close? Think it’s because clubs keep hold of their players for as long as possible, which is why it took so long to get Melbourne. We’ll still end up with shite no doubt.

Just read the summary and am utterly staggered by this:

We had hoped that we wouldn’t need to sign any more midfielders but, as everyone knows, Stuart Bannigan has had a knockback after a great pre-season."

Image result for bewildered gif

Is he having a fucking laugh? Even if Bannigan was fit, we're still short. And that's ignoring the fact we have Shea Gordon who looks like he should be playing in the Firhill Cup.

It's not a massive leap then to assume that, prior to Bannigan's knock, there's been absolutely no scouting performed to fill a position that has needed filled for over a year. That is fucking criminal.

I couldn't agree with this post more.  It's beyond belief that our management team think that we have a competitive midfield in place for the coming season, with or without (and let's face it, it's 95% certain it will be without) a fully fit Bannigan.  They have apparently learned nothing whatsoever from the absolute shambles of last season, where we put teams out week after week who were absolutely steamrollered in midfield - and nothing from the failed policy of "our injured player will be back soon to save us".

We are, at the very, very least, short of a right back, two holding/tackling midfielders, and a striker.    Our squad - both team and bench - on Day 1 of the league campaign was a complete burach.  They've had months to get targets in (and rather than sobbing about "knockbacks" like a teenager at a school disco, to have multiple alternatives lined up).

It really does look like the club decided not to compete for promotion this season in order to severely cut squad costs - but pretended otherwise after our ignominous relegation, to sell season books.

The Club’s strategy is clearly to wait until Jeremy Corbyn is elected Prime Minister and players are forcibly redistributed from the well run to the shambolic.

Martin Hardie is back working as a sparkie in Johnstone , he supposedly said "Archie hasn't been given the funds he was promised" doesn't  sound promising.

Like last season, I'm more concerned with his allocation of the funds he has. Budget has become a very thin excuse when it bought us 'the best Thistle squad in years'.

17 year old right back Lee Duncanson away on loan to Albion Rovers - another right back coming in or irrelevant as he would be nowhere near the first team squad at any point this season? 

Also we have another sponsor, this time some healthy food mob.
