Larkhall Thistle 2018/2019 Thread

Recommended Posts

Never seen much of the game today but what I did see and talking to others you deserved you victory. A totally different team from the one we beat at larkhall a few months back. Well done to everyone involved because the way it has been going for you guys this season it would've been easier to just walk away and give up,given some of the results. You may have a big say on what happens at the top end of the table with a few of the promotion chasers still to play you this season

Well done to the Larky boys! Last I heard larkyforever was in a real tizzy as he tried to remember where he'd planked his scarf.  :)

Better than 10 orgasms in a row.

Hopefully normal service will be resumed when the Candy come calling.... theyve only waited 99 years, they can wait another 100 or at least till im deid, whichever comes first.

Well bud,assuming you've already had one of those this year (and that's an image that's gonny take some shifting :unsure:),there doesn't seem to be a lot wrong with your memory if you can go back to 2010.:)

Yes, that was the last time I had 10 in a row.

Had to go back to Page 9 to find this thread, kind of sums up how the season has gone.

A terrible result on the last day of the season on paper but with some mitigating circumstances. On the face of it an 8-1 home defeat to the fourth bottom team is a shocker and there's no doubt Craigmark were the better team on the day and worthy of a 2 or 3 goal win even with all things being equal.

But... we had no keeper for three quarters of the game and played the whole second half with our defensive midfielder unable to run, quickly followed by the left back ending up similarly incapacitated after a coming together as they say. With no subs to bring on it was only going to go one way. No help from the referee either with two penalties against us although the second was pretty clear cut.

So onwards and downwards to the first division next year with some tasty looking ties in prospect against all our nearest and dearest. Savings on travel and potentially bigger crowds should soften the blow a bit along with what must surely be an improved showing in the table. I've seen a few of the teams in the league this season and the standard isn't bad so I'm not predicting a quick return for us, if we get top half I think we'll be doing well.

Slightly worried for the Thistle next year thought we had turned it round when we started picking up points but since then it’s been a return to some pretty terrible results and performances. 

Firstly i’m not against the manager but we only lost 1-0 to Craigmark at their ground at Christmas now 8-1 at home. Must say I think they are getting off lightly because of the keepers injury. The midfielder was injured in the first half yet wasn’t substituted whilst using our two remaining subs at halftime. We then picked up another injury again early in the second half with no subs. That’s self inflicted by poor game management.

I suppose impulsive subs like that suggest the manager was not too happy with the players and the game was already out of sight by halftime. Would expect a big squad turn over though which may be needed purely to lift morale.

On a positive note Larkhall in the scheme of things will be one of the bigger clubs in the division next year so with the right recruitment we could easily be challenging but will be more than happy just to see us pick up some more wins. Hopefully we get back to winning ways and get the crowds back. Some big local derbies for us next season and I especially can’t wait for the Albert to come calling.
