I believe it was a 3 year deal- so probably 2 years left now. 

No way hes getting bagged then if you boys have a shite 1st third... Too much paper to pay him plus replacement unless his 2nd in command takes hls coat

His second in command is Archie, don’t get me wrong he had a very successful first few years as manager but his last year and a half was sadly appalling and he seems to be a very poor assistant manager.  If McCall was to leave at any point (as you rightly say financially would not happen) then I feel we need a break from Archie for his own good and the good of the club

McCall has mentioned his lack of fitness recently. Even if that is the case we've seen far less of him than I had expected.

 

He said he wasn't "match fit" after the Clyde game. And hasn't come off the bench in the last two games. 

That's the guy who scored 16 goals in the third tier last season, whilst we're crying out for a goalscorer.

Disappointing that Blair Lyons hasn't bit the ground running this season. Maybe tactical reasons for McCall not playing him Saturday but I hoped for more than a bit part role from him so far. 

Considering we paid a fee for him I would assume it must be a training/ fitness issue

He got about 20 minutes against Airdrie. Came on and made a couple of poor decisions where he was easily dispossessed. That said, I’d rather have a Lyons on the pitch trying to beat his man (even if it doesn’t work out or he doesn’t get his head up to see an easy pass), than Shea Gordon doing his usual hiding act.

Lack of match fitness is such an easy excuse. That’s what substitutions are for and on Saturday we used none. McCall seems the sort of stubborn character who, because people want to see Gordon benched and want to see Lyons get a chance, will deliberately not give in to these demands to try and prove a point.

There's probably an arrogance there too. Aye, he did it at a wee club last year, he's at Partick Thistle, now.

Busy day at Firhill as we keep being everything to everyone, by tweeting happy birthday wishes to a volunteer who's in hospital. Tweeting condolences to a former player who's dad passed away last week, having only found out via Hibernians twitter feed. Oh and we've got October's player of the month award.

 

My vote goes to Ross Docherty for his assist on Saturday. 

 

Can't wait for tomorrow, when we will be joining the Clap for Camp Sites initiative, interviewing Antonio German on his time at the Club and monitoring police radio for any major incidents we can jump on the back of.

We are announcing a sponsor tomorrow  for the executive toilet in the boardroom

I don't know what you expect on a Sunday from the Twitter feed? Day off for staff and management team.

But low having a pop at the tweet about John Smith. Poor guy has had health issues and has now been in ICU with Covid-19 for a couple of weeks.

Also I'd no idea Kevin Nisbet had lost his dad until seeing it onTwitter.

I'm sure there was plenty of Thistle chat around you could have got involved with?

You can blame many people for our faults on and off the pitch, but having a go at the club’s (presumably voluntarily) media team for sending a get well soon message to a fan who’s in intensive care in hospital and to Kevin Nisbet‘s dad who sadly passed away, really is over the top. Direct all your frustration at the players/management/board, not at the hard-working media team.

It wasn't a get well soon message though, there was already one of those last week. This time it was wishing him a happy birthday. That follows a few weeks ago the announcement of the birth of the daughter of some random Thistle fan.

We're someone punting a second hand washing machine away from turning into the classifieds section of the local paper.

They were tweets from Monday. Not Sunday.

 

Do we now tweet condolences to every former player who loses a family member?

Guy’s in intensive care with a deadly disease, a volunteer around the club for years, so what if we put out a Happy Birthday message to him. It’s just the media guys trying to be considerate (and for all we know, they could’ve been asked to do it)

I think it was more to do with the fact Kevin came through the academy, and many around the club would have met his Dad, and there’s no harm in passing on condolences, it’s a very sad thing.
 

Given, the current situation on the park, this is a very strange thing to get annoyed at. 

Good on the media team, doing a good and classy job, shame the same can’t be said for the players.

I was off yesterday. Still, so what he's a popular person around the club and goes home and away so a lot of people would be happy to wish him best wishes for his birthday at a difficult time.

I read it from an official Hearts tweet retreating Hibs. Again, what's the issue? He was at the club for a good few years.

Social media content doesn't have to be confrontational. 

If you don't like it scroll past. There's a lot more important things going on than Partick Thistle at the moment.

What content were you actually waiting for?

We don’t actually need to tweet anything, but confirmation of what’s happening with Declan Glass would have been preferable to “someone you don’t know has had a child”

The “get well soon” one was fine as he’s involved at the club, but I have no idea why we’re doing the other stuff. The woman’s daughter got an actual article on the website for f**k sake.
