 Patrick Thistle

Seems like a club in turmoil internally. Article in the Herald staring the manager has had his remaining budget pulled. Once the new owners take over it will be Barnsley's fringe players he will be getting.

The article also said that players and staff had to make their own way to Alloa on Saturday. Furthermore the multi millionaire lottery winner Colin Weir has pulled his funding so that it looks like their new training complex is Kaput as well. Quite sad really. Just goes to show what can happen to a club when ego's and corporate greed collide. The Spfl should carry out the due diligence and knock back the prospective new owner. Something not quite right. As the old saying goes beware of men bearing gifts.

Is the multi millionaire lottery winner not in the middle of a divorce?

We aren't in a position to moralise.

If you only turn up to moan then do it elsewhere

The more the teams around us that are in turmoil, the better. Nothing against Thistle apart from the fact that my pal supports them and has a kind of West of Scotland supremist type attitude to teams from the sticks. I confess to being slightly hypocritical with him by suggesting that I hope they do well but underneath I hope we give them a good pummeling and don't mind if they get relegated.

Look, the guy and his wife won £161 million. Yes, they're divorcing but I can't imagine that the promised £6 million has much bearing on that. He'll have as much loose change in his back pocket. Sounds more like the Jags are in total turmoil, that he doesn't like the direction it's going, and that he has been snubbed in some way. So, he's taking his bat home. Can't say I blame him. But what a mess and how stupid are those running the club. They could have been set up. Now sounds like they could go under. Hope not personally. Firhill was always my go-to in the Roughie years if I couldn't get to a Pars game.

I heard the new training facility was good to go but there was major road changes to be made that would cost a lot off money at the Kirkintilloch complex.
Imo Partick are fecked!
