Truly mortifying.

That gets my vote too!

Quite an embarrassing thing to say. It’s only a statement. No fan would wish their club didn’t exist.

She must have written that guzzling prosecco while getting distracted watching Neighbours.

To never forget that there are many good decent people and clubs in Scotland who stood with us, publicly and privately – but there are some whose fear and self-interest got in the way of doing the right thing....

We have every right to be angry. So let’s use that anger as the fuel that drives our campaign in 2020/21. This is now about Thistle, no one else.

That statement is a pure riddy. It’s worry but not surprising how many of our fans are lapping it up.

Unfortunately a pretty high percentage of our fans will clap like seals at anything the club does, no matter how shameful or embarrassing it might be. Some of the Twitter replies to that statement are predictably cringeworthy, and display an appalling lack of awareness.

But Low knows this. PR is her thing she’s very good at it (unlike she is at running a football club). Deflect from her and Gerry’s disastrous running of the football club, and shift all the pressure onto McCall for next season. Job done.

Would be surprised if there was any great desire within the SFA to kick Partick and Hearts when they’re down.  Some kind of suspended punishment would draw a line under things.   Can’t understand why you guys didn’t pursue some kind of compensation payment back in April rather than the legal route.  Gerry Britton seems to think he’s smarter than the average bear.

Gerry has to walk after today’s result. The guy is a lawyer. He should have been advising board members and all involved. Surly he should have had an idea would could have happened during all this. Now a potential fine! 

The guy is absolutely hopeless - his wage could be going into the playing staff. 
 

like I said before. Can’t help think his decisions are based on popularity rather than solution focused. 
 

This result also opens the bandwidth for error on McCall’s head. Imo he should still be winning the league with our squad he has assembled. If not it’s a failure. smaller part time clubs will have had their budget cut more than ours. 
 


 

 

I'd imagine he is tonight.

Where do you get that from? Gerry has been silent for months, (I think an interview with someone about a week after the season was halted is maybe all there’s been) in fact no one knows how involved he actually is with the whole legal thing.

Doncaster said quite eagerly on Sportsound at the time that that was something that could be discussed. I suppose Thistle thought that reconstruction was still a possibility, not sure why. When that didn't work they should have obviously gone the compo route with the threat of litigation behind it, Budge had to get her fans back onside though.

Jacqui Low with another birthday card pish type statement.

That really is a very cringeworthy statement. Yet another condemnation of self interest where that self interest isnt Partick Thistle's self interest without even a hint of irony in it.

Aye, so you would. Not a true fan with a statement like that or are you more motivated towards a wind up?

 

You are right, re the statement. Utter embarrassment and as many have said on here the management and leadership has been poor at both the top of the spfl and Thistle, no arguement there.

Did either of you happen to hear a faint whooshing noise overhead while typing these replies?

I think your club are Past Masters at putting out cringeworthy statements. You tried hard to cease to exist in recent years, but getting your zero pence in the £ CVA kept you going.
