 Match Thread - Thistle v Pars
Topic Originator: OzPar  
Date:   Sat 23 Oct 12:08

17... that`s the points gap between us and the side that currently sits top of the league, Inverness. It also happens to be the goal difference between us.

After just nine games, we would have expected far more than the 5 points we have gathered in the league so far. It has rendered laughable Peter Grant`s comments that we are serious title contenders.

Whatever way you look at it, we have got to start narrowing that yawning gap. The best way to do that is to set small short-term targets. And today`s target should be for us to overtake Morton.

Last time out, Thistle demolished us at EEP. But we should remember that last time we were at Firhill, we came away with a good victory.

So, I am wearing my optimistic cap today, and I forecast a 2-0 win for the Pars.

I think it was Grant who mentioned our next 3 games are tough ones.
Its hard to see past draws in each of them. Tough run at a time when wins are being demanded.

I like your optimism Oz.
Currently on the DASC bus to sunny Partick and raring to go!

My prediction today:
Partick Thistle 1-2 DAFC

Tbf PARrot we could lose them.

Or win them, mathematically 1 win and 2 losses is just as good as three draws...

Tough game today, Thistle looked very good last week albeit against a poor Hamilton side. Lot of pace out wide and the best striker in the league, for me, in Brian Graham.

Draw would be a good result today.

Happy to see the same starting 11 and nice to see Wilson making the bench
Will be even happier if the team perform like last week
What I would like to see today though is us taking our chances and stop giving away cheap goals !
If we can do this and put in a good performance which we are certainly capable of We have a good chance of winning today !

People often say that, but I don't think it's accurate.

Both scenarios result in 3 points for us, but in the three-draw scenario the opposition cumulatively collect 3 points, whereas if we lose two games the opposition collectively collect 6 points. The significance of this would probably be determined by who the opposition are.

Also it's probable that one win and two defeats would result in our goal difference worsening, whereas three draws would leave our GD unchanged.

We've lined up as a 4411 with Wighton playing off O'Hara, Dow on the left with Thomas on the right, no real clear cut opportunities for either side but Partick are playing the better football.

An awful, awful lot of direct football from us. It might be a deliberate tactic to try get behind the Thistle full backs who are fair rampaging on, but it's not been effective. We've got a fairly strong wind this half aswell.

First game in the flesh for ages. We're pretty bad overall but containing Partick well enough.

We have nothing in midfield other than when Thomas gets on the ball. Ball just doesn't stick to the front two either. Hopefully a bit better second half for no logical reason whatsoever. Blind optimism.

That was fairly grim viewing really. I can't criticise the strikers for not holding the ball because the service upto them is dreadful. There's been a few occasions where a nice ball into feet was on and instead we've just absolutely yeeted the ball. We're against the wind this half (going by the corner flag) so the long ball will surely be even less effective?

Last five minutes have been nice from us, we're pressuring Thistle further up the park and have fashioned a couple of half chances. Nice interplay between O'Hara and Wighton ended with Wighton putting the ball just wide.

Wilson coming on for Dow, looks like O'Hara has went out wide left, I presume Kennedy will be on soon for him.

Edwards distribution is particularly frustrating, always looking to go long, the times where he does pass it short he inevitably leaves the recipient with a hard job of controlling the ball.

Season is over. No cup runs, no excitement at anything. I can’t see anything drastically improving so we’ll probably end up in a relegation play-off and I honestly don’t fancy our chances against anyone anywhere. People keep saying we have a good squad but I’m absolutely bemused as to where they’re getting that idea. Those players are awful. It can’t solely be down to the manager. He’s not on the field unable to actually play football. Sack the lot of them. I’ll contribute a tenner towards it.

Never felt such apathy towards the pars before , kind of expect the same thing every week now . Clueless , boring football, no idea how to change things during a game. In for a season of boring 0-0 draws. Hate the fact that it’s becoming habit just to check after 90 mins to see that it’s been another 0-0 , need to change something soon or can’t see anything other than relegation

I don`t know how anyone can now believe that this man will turn around the team. I`ve supported the pars all my life and been through the dark times but something needs to be done. Peter Grant should never have been near the club in the first place and their are some people still on here that think he is the answer.

We will get relegated if Grant stays at the club.

Tightened up at the back but can't score goals. We are the lowest scorers in the league with 6 out of 10 games. And the reason is simple. The players are just not good enough. And they are predominantly Crawford signings. Most of Grant's signings can't even get in the team!

a draw against Thistle is a reasonable result



I guess you were not watching the game pacifist………. Partick were there for the beating in the second half & we couldn’t put together a decent passage of play to take advantage.
A draw was a fair result as both teams had no finnish to their game

Last week I left EEP after our draw feeling like we had won!, today our draw has left me feeling we missed an opportunity to win the game

Was a reasonable result compared to the last game against Thistle. And I did say we need to do more up front obviously. A point is better than none. Whilst I want Grant to go I am not going to hope we don`t win games.

Tuesday will be another test. We actually scored against Rovers last time - so, let`s get behind the team and do the complaining after.

apart from the first 5/6 mins of the second half I tend to agree that Partick were there for the taking , we had a wee spell where for 15/20mins we were pushing but did absolutely hee haw in the areas that count , always chose the wrong pass and this seems to be a common theme from us !
The game is finished so not much point moaning about it now as we cannot change the result !! so it is onwards to Tuesday night against Raith , here`s hoping we turn up against them and get that first win (miracles do happen )
We Supporters need something to cheer about instead of feeling crap after every game with not much positives to look forward to

Firstly, where did the ref find 5 minutes plus of injury time? Unbelievable. And nerve-wracking!
As for the game, well that was no classic. On the back of good recent results Partick, in the second half in particular, just seemed to get dragged down to our level.
Certainly it was a relief to go in at half time without conceding.
What is it with us? Lack of confidence? Nervousness? That first half was dreadful. Partick were all over us - Tifoney in particular. Somehow we manage to look powder-puff in everything we do: really shocking passing, second to the ball in challenges, lumped balls from defence to forwards which is not the sort of game that Wighton excels at and which the Partick defence easily mopped up, etc. And always a crushingly ponderous build-up allowing the opposition midfield and defence to regroup.
I don’t follow the line that our players are useless. I truly believe that, whilst none of them are world beaters, they could and should be doing better.
In the second half we definitely improved. Generally there was a greater urgency and sense of intent and even the possibility of scoring opportunities. It certainly would have been cruel to have lost a late goal. But again, in the final few minutes, would it not have been better to try and retain possession and slow things down? Yet OFW and various defenders were lumping the ball the length of the park for Sneddon to return with interest and put us under pressure.
Shakes head ……..
Anyway, one point is better than none. I keep hoping (optimistically) that the next game will see us with a win. Sounds like Raith may be slightly weakened by suspensions and / or injuries. All I can say is, fingers crossed.

It`s sad times when we`re holding out for a draw against a team who has just been promoted. At least we didn`t get thumped today but as many have been saying for weeks, Draws aren`t good enough. We need wins. I imagine Grant and the board will be delighted with another draw however. Worrying, I think they`ll be delighted with a draw on Tuesday as well.

Is it 1 defeat in 6 ?

Nullified Tifoney and they never created much.

After watching Partick destroy Hamilton you’d have taken a 0-0 away from home.

Wilson back in midfield is a big positive.

Need to take more risks if we are going to start winning games.

I suppose its about expectation. Ignoring our league position ordinarily a point would have been reasonable result.

We need to start winning games at home but as others have said, Im not sure if we are good enough. By all accounts the players are working hard so hopefully things will turn around soon.

First half was awful, second half we had a decent 15-20 minute spell where we pressed well high up the pitch but did nothing with it. One good chance for Wighton were the keeper made a good save, that was about it.

The conditions looked tricky, windy and a bumpy pitch but we have to try and play more football than that. I can understand trying to get O`Hara in behind but not every time we get possession. Pybus and Allan, as mentioned on another thread, work hard but are limited players and neither seemed to want the ball or be able to pass forward. Edwards was diabolical in possession but defensively fine. Not much from the forward players again, Dow did little, Thomas wasted a few promising positions second half, Wighton is powderpuff - only brief flashes from him and O`Hara was also wasteful on the few occasions he got the ball up the pitch. Kennedy didn`t get greatly involved after he came on, Todorov barely had a pass to use.

Defensively we were fine, it was good to see Wilson again and its not a terrible result away from home. But after a bit of promise last week when we conjured a bit of football and attacking intent, today was a more depressing watch.

It took 28 minutes today for anyone to pass a comment on the match, an indication of the quality of football on display I would assume.

I saw most home matches in 1970-71 when we didn’t win a game till near Xmas and can remember hardly anything from them, for we played little football ourselves but were able to stop the opposition from playing much either. It made for grim viewing. This season is shaping up similar.

Quite worrying how accepting people are of watching this utter sh1t3 week in week out, we are well into grants reign now and still look clueless as to what our game plans are. Rovers has to be his last game regardless of the result. Grant out. Mcarthur out.

They're not "accepting" draws at all...They're just not willing to succumb to absolute misery because of football...you dig?
Some folks choose to be positive about things...dude I wish I could do more of that myself...instead I find myself apathetic, detached.

I want to be sitting next to them at this point, not gonna lie, they at least feel something that isn't anger and misery.

I'm choosing to just chill about it all as much as I can...by admission my own mind permitting ✌✊

The worst thing about it is the rank rotten long ball football we`re playing at the moment. Wingers playing as centre mids today creating absolutely nothing. Players need to take some responsibility today as they were so devoid of any fight. And of course Grant is to blame but he`ll probably get another 3 or 4 games to do nothing in. About 4 games too late for his sacking now and counting.

Having watched the game in situ, I thought our application and effort was superb. Maybe we seemed a bit lightweight in midfield, although Wilson made a good impact when he came on. Every player put in an excellent shift. Let`s not kid ourselves Thistle thought they would skate this game. They had a big crowd, which made a lot of noise. They had one dangerous attempt on goal which was superbly save by fon Williams. Wighton had two great chances and probably should have taken at least one. I think it was a great point for us and we definitely have something to build on. We do need to start winning at home though.

Totally agree paralex. With Wilson in the team we look more able to play it through the midfield. Thistle are a big club with some good players . I literally can’t understand why some think we should be going there and giving them a doing. On what basis should we be doing that? At least we look hard to break down. With Dow and Wighton continuing to misfire we look to have little cutting edge.

We were better in the second half.
Was never going to be a classic with these conditions and with a bit more thought on the ball, we could have opened up their defence.
It's a point I'd normally take all year long but not to state the obvious, we really need to start winning games and quickly.

It was a poor game, but for some reason I enjoyed watching it. And I don`t much care if that doesn`t make sense or makes me a bit weird.

It was an odd game because you`d watch most of it and think they were the better side all over the park, but despite that, our scoring chances were as good as theirs. Possibly we even shaded it on that front. Last week I thought we were OK with the ball but poor without it. Today, we were awful with the ball for most of the game and although I would`t say we were good without it - we were opened up right through the middle quite often - our defence did a good job to limit the threat.

Josh Edwards had a really good game last week but today he had a nightmare whenever he had a pass to play. One really bad defensive mistake when he committed himself to winning the ball, missed it and took himself out of the game but that aside, he defended pretty well. And well done to him for that, because you could see how frustrated he was at making an erse of every pass and it would have been easy to let that completely ruin his game. The back four did well collectively today, the two centre halves in particular.

Craig Wighton is such a frusration. He`s often come on as a sub and looked a decent player, but so often when he starts he just doesn`t seem on it at all. Just seemed slow to react to everything, and never got his position right. I don`t really fault him ith the one big chance he had, as I thought the keeper did well to make a good save.

There seems to be a feeling from some folk that we setteld for 0-0 and didn`t really try to win the game. That wasn`t the case. Maybe you had to be there to appreciate it, but towards the end, spaces opened up everywhere as it got strethced with both teams pushing on looking for a winner.

I`ve mentioned before that this system will be unforgiving if it isn`t going well, and I think that was the case today. 4-4-2 with one forward sometimes a bit deeper didn`t really work, and we`d probably have been better with an extra man in midfield rather than two forwards who saw little of the ball. Nice to see Wilson back on the park, and he did quite well after coming on.

I`ll finish by saying well done to the referee. He had a good game and I liked that his instinct wasn`t to automatically give a free kick whenever someone went down.

Wighton is frustrating right enough because he is the laziest player I have ever seen.

He has some talent, has an eye for goal but absolutely no heart whatsoever.

He would never bust a gut. He barely runs at all. Just trots around, loses the ball a lot and never even attempts to win it back.

Will he score the winning goal on Tuesday now? Probably…

Not that we had many chances in and around the box today but one thing I want to see is our players taking a shot more often. Probably lack of confidence but even on the edge of the box we seem to constantly look for a pass rather than looking for an oppoy to shoot.

Wighton is quite frustrating, for a big guy, he quite often doesn`t even compete for balls in the air and he can at times be too easily knocked off the ball. His game is not about charging around, it`s about dropping into the space between the opposition defence and midfield and getting on the ball, from there he is effective. However, rarely do his teammates manage to give him a decent pass quick enough when he finds this space. Yesterday on that pitch and given the fact that we were not even attempting to play football (first half at least), it would have made more sense to use Todorov and hope that his largely aimless running around may have caused more problems to Thistle`s centre backs.

Wighton spends the entire game either with his back to goal with a centre back up his backside trying to control head high “passes” that are pinged into him from all angles or chasing long balls that he’s never going to reach.

The biggest problem he has is playing centre forward in a team that creates zero chances.

To suggest he is lazy however is nonsense.

Lack of effort is not a criticism that can be levelled at any player recently.

Wighton was much more effective under Crawford as the team were playing much more to his strengths. He was given more service with balls through to feet and crosses in from the wingers. Ewan Henderson and Dom Thomas linked up really well with him when they were both playing out wide. Although very skilful, Kai Kennedy can be a bit greedy and is reluctant to the pass the ball and always trying to beat yet another player. Kennedy hasn`t scored a goal yet and I don`t think he has even had an assist. Watch the highlights of the 4-3 Arbroath game (link below) with Henderson picking out Wighton`s runs for both his his goals. Under Grant, Wighton makes plenty of runs but either doesn`t get a pass or it is played forward too late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?
