Pity they isolated 25% of our home gate by sticking two fingers up at the jags trust.

Regardless of anyone's opinion of the jags trust board, they represented 600 (?) Thistle fans.

It takes a brave club to tell a good whack of your fans, their shareholding means f**k all and all the efforts you made during Save The Jags don't mean a thing...

Then ask the same folk to contribute to a player fund.

Anyone who is disgruntled with the Jagstrust can always stand for election. As I recall there was something close to a clean sweep there about a decade ago.

I think just about all Thistle fan organisations miss a trick because there is no regular social element in their activities. I think that's one of the reasons they never remain cohesive and the energy and goodwill people put into them gets lost.

Last night I am sure I heard that the new body was formed to hold shares and represent the interests of the fans and take those to the board. I am pretty sure I heard that years ago when someone asked me to join the Jagstrust.

I'm sure it was Albert Einstein who spoke about the futility of repeating the same actions and expecting different results.

I have no idea how the player fund will work. Will it be exposed to tax? Will it have a legal status - I assume so - and can I chuck a tenner in a bucket safe in the knowledge that if 500 other fans do that it will end up improving the team?

There was, I was part of the group who called for the clear out. Stood for election and served as membership secretary for 18 months I think.

I've just seen that Antwerp aren't in the top flight in Belgium. Surely we'll be keeping Frans? Unless Archie's gave him a shite offer.

Lierse's rivals too...

If Killie go down then I wouldn't be against Dicker and Addison signing for us.

Id like Dicker too

If we paired Addison with Lindsay then the defence line would need to be really deep due to their lack of pace wihich wouldn't be ideal..

Fox got called up with us too, it's hardly Ross County's reputation that has somehow got him a call up he otherwise wouldn't have got but aye batter in with dragging up a post from a year ago.

County fans loving the 'chip on the shoulder' routine these days.

The situation is pretty funny though, just because of the pelters he took on here (whether or not it was deserved at the time).

Don't mention their budget. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

He was an ungrateful twat at our POY awards then gives the lamest excuse for joining County - granted he is doing well for County and we have got a better keeper in Cerny so everyone is happy in that regard.

Fox handled the suition poorly so gets stick from a lot of thistle fans basically.

Yes, but what was his "lame excuse"? For silverware and getting into the Scotland Squad? We were derided as being a smaller club yet less than a year later and he's achieved both us, that's pretty amusing you've got to admit and if it was the other way round you lot would undoubtedly bring it up too.

If it was the other way around I would bring it up every day of the 2016/17 season. Especially if he gets minutes on the pitch for Scotland.

 

Please don't do that though.

Part of it being a poor excuse was that he'd already been called up to the Scotland squad when a Partick Thistle player. Claiming to move club so that you could be called up for Scotland, when you'd already been called up for Scotland with the team that you're leaving, was an illogical claim.

 

He could have just said it was a financial decision. Essentially Lyle Taylor came out and admitted as much, whereas Scott Fox and Kallum Higginbotham didn't. That's why two of them are derided by Thistle fans and the other isn't.

Considering it's only friendlies, and he'll be Nr 2 to Marshall I suspect he may well get minutes...

Dicker was pish last night and Addison is a big diddy, would think we could easily get better than both.

I hope he does. I'm off to the Italy game next week so that means I can relive an away day at Dingwall by standing behind the goals and abusing him.

I would. Dicker isn't good enough and Addison is in the wrong sport. We've got to be looking for better than those two.

Can't see an away game in Italy being even remotely as good as a day out in Dingwall TBH.
