  1. Theres a fair chance to club have access to the true facts as well. I don't have a problem at all with him wanting to leave. I just don't see whats wrong with the club letting the fans know what happened. We always complain when they leave us in the dark, now they tell us and they are the bad guys.
  2. What's wrong with the statement? They have just stated the facts and wished him well at the end. Providing the facts are true I don't see anything wrong with it.
  3. Maybe its just as well that fans aren't back in the ground at the moment as it looks like there may be a lot of postponed and delayed games at least at the beginning of the season anyway until we get the testing right. The Rangers Motherwell game was postponed 2 hours the other night with less than an hour to go as the tests hadn't come back on time. It wasn't an issue really as it was only the 2 clubs delayed but could you imagine if there were 50k people in the ground at the time? Same with our now postponed game on Saturday. I can see this happening a lot in the first month or so at least.
  4. If our CEO doesn't think we are capable of finishing in the top 6 then we would have a major problem. Tony is absolutely right to have said what he said. Its not fairytale ambition to say we can finish in the top 6 when smaller clubs than us like Killie, Livi and Motherwell done it last year.
  5. The self righteousness of Hearts and Patrick is embarrassing. Trying to take the moral high ground the way they are condemning the clubs who voted in self interest. Do they really think we believe they wouldn't have voted the same if they weren't shite enough to find themselves bottom of the league?
  6. There has been a lot of research done to show that non violent protests are actually much more effective https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2019/02/why-nonviolent-resistance-beats-violent-force-in-effecting-social-political-change/ You can see why this is the case. A large amount of the discussion now is focused around condemning the looters rather than talking about the real issue of racism and police brutality.
  7. The club should do something about this point. They should make the exception that people done lose their seats if they don't buy a season ticket this season. It may be worth bringing it up with the club, they need to show flexibility as much as they can in a time like this.
  8. Fans have an emotional connection to a football club. Thats the point of supporting a club. If my relationship with football was purely transactional like it is with local shops and bookies I'd support Barcelona.
  9. I don't think they are suggesting that the R number should be looked at in isolation. Its just another data point to consider along side others. Your example is a good example to show why the R number can't be looked at alone.
  10. Its called supporting the club.
  11. This is a once in a hundred year global pandemic. Nobody is out to get Partick Thistle. They've just been really unlucky and found themselves at the bottom of the league when this all hit. There's no agenda here or better solution. Shit happens. Do I expect them to be happy about it? No, but I expect them to suck it up and move on. The club is 120+ years old. I'm sure they'll get over it.
  12. An independent review into what exactly? They already had an independent review done by Deloitte into the voting situation and it was determined that there was nothing wrong.
  13. They say this same pish every time we come back to the traditional stripes after being away from them for a few seasons. Im sure they said that exact same line last time
  14. I'm glad of this as it means we aren't tied down to too many long term contracts on a pre-coronavirus budget. We will be able to adjust our finances accordingly for next season without as much trouble as other clubs. There isn't a chance of this season continuing so we don't need to worry about that.
  15. The EPL has 6 European places and 3 relegation places. 9 positions to fight for, nearly half the league. Also nobody is saying every league doesn't have meaningless games but in our situation if you increase the number of teams you will increase the number of meaningless games. The leagues are fine at the moment. Tinkering about with the format isn't going to bring the crowds back and revolutionise Scottish football. The problems we have lie elsewhere.
