What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL

You are aware that fans don't always agree with the actions of their clubs/chairmen?

And I presume he’s talking about 10+ years ago when spl2 was being talked about.  Safe to say our owner and chairman from that time aren’t exactly popular with pars fans.

The notion that Howe is somehow in the wrong not taking the job given the circumstances is wild 

Not sure if you have some sort of "special ITK knowledge" but you seem determined that this is entirely Celtic's fault. I honestly don't care for either Celtic of Howe, but I still feel this was a missed opportunity for him.

I wouldn't say he was "wrong" to turn down the job but, to me, he has shat the bed when he had one of the best chances of gaining honours and European experience. If he's decided against it because some of his backroom staff were not keen to move North, then all that suggests to me is that he not confident in his own ability.

I am warning people right now before you watch this - prepare for whatever physical reaction your body gives you to cringing because you have never cringed this hard in your life:

Words can't describe how terrible this is. What the hell was Patrick Thistle thinking?

In what way?

In that a joke video isn’t tinpot at all, and potentially damaging your own pitch via over-exposure could be.

We’ve got previous for renting out Firhill and it’s never gone down well. I appreciate that at least it isn’t a rugby team like the last time, but it’s still far from ideal for the surface. Especially when McCall loves to use shite pitches as an excuse for his teams not being able to play football the way he wants them to.

I remember on a filthy day in September or October 1990 I was on my way up from Hillhead (a student. don't you know) to Firhill to see Clyde play Falkirk. It was hammering it down; good Glasgow weather.

I met an American student I knew vaguely as I was going along GWR. She asked me where I was going and offered to come with me: I said no! I genuinely thought she would be bored and miserable and I was doing her a favour.

Five minutes later came the other, more sensible thought... when I realised I had knocked back an afternoon/evening with a not unattractive foreign student. What a berk! Youth is most definitely wasted on the young.

As well as Partick I've seen Clyde and the Accies have "home" games at Firhill in my time. Never saw the egg chasers though. Is there anyone else that has shared the ground? 

I'd been to Firhill about half a dozen times before I actually saw Thistle playing there.

Eta. Clyde and Accies not the egg chasers.
