The Official Airdrieonians Thread - 2019/20 and beyond


Recommended Posts

Always enjoy an Airdrie v Thistle game so quite looking forward to it. Should be a good day out in the west end and a good atmosphere. It will be nice to attend a Thistle game in person at least seeing as we never got to last season. 

Looking forward to kicking a Glasgow Uni professor up and down Maryhill Road.

The Draw and spare time on my hands led me to look back and see when was the last time that we won a Scottish Cup tie against a team in a league above us, unfortunately our recent poor cup form meant that I had to go back to 2006 when we beat Dunfermline 4-3 away in that memorable match https://dafc.co.uk/fixture.php?SID=First Team&D=2006-01-07&ID=289

Im the opposite, genuinely IMO this was one of THE worst draws in that pot.  Not even a good pay day against an OK team from the league above, 99% chance we'll get papped out with a whimper in a terrible 2-0 defeat.

The magic of the cup eh.

Trying to check our head to head but I don't think we have played Thistle in the Scottish Cup in my lifetime? The last games I was in a crowd at Firhill versus Thistle we lost by 0-7 in season 2012-13 ( Alan Cook at Left back!) but managed to reduce it to 0-1 later in that season .  Obviously we mainly lose there but there have been wins. It was a wee bit close last season in the crowd-less games so I can look forward to a wee trip .

Partick poster showed that we played in 1986 and won a replay at Firhill. We then lost to Dundee in the next round in a year where Aberdeen beat Hearts. It is not beyond us to win.

Not in my time anyway. The game at firhill that comes to my mind is the game we won 1-0 in the challenge cup sure that was the season we won it. Di Giacomo scoring.

Depends whether you're as senior as me but I do remember that Di Giacomo goal. Will research which year asap. Cheers

2008-2009 Challenge Cup Semi Final at Firhill, as was posted. Beat Ross County on penalties in Perth. Changed days!

Yeah that’s it ! Would’ve been the same season we beat hearts at Tynecastle in the league cup

Results didn’t really go our way today. Hopefully we catch Montrose tired out on Tuesday after their Scottish cup exploits. Queen’s Park will certainly come full of confidence next week. Can’t help but feel the next two games will go a long way in defining our season. Cove seem to be on a good run.

Certainly will give us a chance to prove we are good enough  or not, 6 points would be a great statement,

Wonder how Leon McCann is feeling about his move to Falkirk this morning.

I asked a similar question after we horsed them earlier in the season and was rounded on. The pitchfork brigade will be after you 😂
