It is because Queens Park currently ground share and they were also drawn at home. Thistle decided to move to Friday so they use pitch 1st.

There’s always one!! 😂

(Deletes smart comment)

Plenty of street parking near the ground bud to be honest. Just look out for street restrictions, but you should be fine.

Weather conditions will play a part. If it was due to get played through here I would be very surprised if the game went ahead, Glasgow however isn’t getting the brunt of the storm but will still experience gusts of 60mph.

Red weather warning out for the east so I would seriously consider wether it’s worth traveling through for this.

Cheers, PARrot. I should have researched it myself. I now see that, if it does go to a replay and is still level after 90 minutes, it will go straight to pens without extra time. Also, there are no replays from the next round onwards.

In view of the updated Red and Amber weather warnings for the Fife,this game should be cancelled. These advise people not to drive unless strictly necessary,so in theory if you crash your insurance may not pay out!

A red weather warning is only instated when there is a risk to life, there should be legitimate concerns and discussions about this game going ahead.

It only applies to the east coast of the country which covers north east fife so isn’t going to impact very many people going to the game at all and it’s only a yellow warning where the game itself is taking place.

If it was in Arbroath then I’d be more inclined to agree 😂

We’re just on the edge of the red warning, and the centre of the country is an orange warning, isn’t like the wind just magically stops on that red boundary.

Edited to add

And glasgow is still expected to have 40-60 mph winds. Just how playable will the game be in those conditions as well.

Looking at the Met Office website, the forecast for match time is a northerly wind of 23 mph, gusting to 46 mph. The temperature is 3 degrees with a 10% chance of rain.

Putting my Michael Fish hat on here, I would confidently say that the big block of flats at the northern end of the stadium should absorb the bulk of any wind there is. No trees or chimney pots will fall in Firhill tonight...

Not really - we`ve won at Firhill 3 times - in 1999, 2004 and 2012. One one final out of that lot.

We did beat them at home in 1968 and 2007 (and 1955, 1966 and 1967).

The first ten minutes were an absolute delight, passing, but the movement to go with it, fantastic.


Then we just seemed to gradually run out of ideas, until we got the point at the end of the half there where Connolly, Gaspuitis and Dorrans were just playing by themselves, pretty awful.

I swear every chance Partick has had has came from one of our players having a bit of a howler.

Yes, I would agree, Grant, our passing has been horrible at times.

What I find frustrating is the lack of imagination getting the ball forward from the defence. Dow, Todd, and McDonald need to be much more involved in providing that link to McCann upfront.

Currently, nothing is working on our right flank and the movement on our left, through Edwards and Thomas, is way too predictable.

We were fortunate to get away with the ball hitting the post.

Yogi needs to scold them, especially as we will now be playing into the wind.

we cannot blame the weather for the score ! what was Dorrans thinking about there ?
we haven`t strung two passes together and most times that Thistle have been dangerous it`s been from our wayward passes most of our players tonight couldn`t trap a bag od cement !
the park isn`t for playing silky football on , better suited for rugby
From what I have seen tonight apart from a wee spell in the first 15 mins I would say It was like watching us from a few weeks ago
Not a night for a pretty game of football but Very disappointing overall ,

I honestly can’t wait for this season to come to an end. Hughes will probably keep us up, then he can boot half of these complete wasters out the club and build his own team. I’m really looking forward to that. He’s the right man for the job but these players are not worthy of playing for our club I’m afraid.

Disappointing but this is a team in form with a very good manager at the helm who has his own squad of players. I really wanted to see us progress in the cup (for once) but we couldn`t have asked for a worse draw. I`d expect a victory next week but still think we desperately need two/three players in come January to improve the squad.

Dorrans must be absolutely class in training because there's absolutely nothing to show for it in actual games, absolute stupidity twice from him, losing the possession for the goal, and then in added time he should have had a red card for his stupidity, was the one decision Beaton gave us all night.

An utterly dreadful game by us all around, no idea what was going so well in the game that Hughes decided that subs weren't needed.

Going out the Scottish Cup with the smallest of whimpers.

Dorrans should be able to pass the ball onto another midfielder but where is that option just now.

Our midfield is the weak link and what makes it worse is that we had pybus,Wilson and Cole on the bench are they deemed to be not good enough

The manager has probably told him to try and keep the ball and look for passes. One mistake and its punished by a wonderful goal. Other players made more mistakes in the game than Dorrans but weren't punished by finishes like that. Cut the guy some slack. An even game on a terrible pitch was decided by a great strike

Completely agree Grant, started off OK first 15/20 mins then simply drifted out of it. Thistle allowed us a lot of possession in our own half during first 45 but we did absolutely nothing with it. We really struggled to find a pass in the opposition half.

That'll be a no then.

From your virtual view of the game is there anything you'd disagree with what I've said about the game? Maybe you think Dorrans was correct to lash out and stop the game in injury time?

Just back from the game. Decent atmosphere from pars fans majority of the game, a goal and it would have been bouncing. Poor game. Bad mistake by dorrans but a good finish. Im not overly disheartened by that. Move on and get the wins in the league. As for the weather for me I don't think it really affected the game till later on in the 2nd half. Ref was shocking some bizarre decisions or lack of decisions should I say. Neither really threatened the goal apart from thistles attempt off the post. As I said poor game and the mistake cost us.

Conditions were fine for driving until you hit Kincardine, parts of trees and bushes all over the road.

Yogi has been drilling the "hold on to possession" angle during training, and it worked a treat to a large extent in the first half.

However, time and time again, we laboured unnecessarily.

With the wind behind us, and McDonald and Dow making promising attack-minded moves down the channels, Dorrans would rotate and play the ball backwards instead of forwards, and everything would come to a halt.

I don`t want to make Dorrans a scapegoat here, there were others just as guilty, but that was repeatedly frustrating. And we snuffed out our attacks.

Gasputis gave me the shivers every time the ball went to him tonight, and Thomas was nowhere near as effective as he could be. Dow and McDonald were practically invisible, but I think we know there are reasons for that.

The pitch was in poor condition, players were slipping all over the place, and the wind also played its part. But, ultimately, we shot ourselves in the foot through our carelessness. And a piece of brilliance from the Thistle player.

Yogi said during the week that we fans should expect the odd defeat. I suspect he felt that we would lose tonight, and he was priming us for that outcome.

It is not the end of the world, but we need to demonstrate that we learn from our mistakes in the next game.

You're more likely to find out information on a game from a post match thread than a managers post match interview.

I've no idea why fans put so much emphasis on them, AJ, Crawford used to get panned for them, Grant got panned for them, it'll be a matter of weeks before you have fans placing far too much emphasis on a pointless interview will start criticising Hughes for them.

Not sour grapes here because it's not like we're going to threaten to win a cup but there's few other professional sports that tolerate playing conditions and surfaces like football does. That pitch is a disgrace, ball bobbling for every single pass. Thistle won via combination of mistake plus excellent, excellent finish.

The Thistle co-commentator was probably the most objective observer of the Pars` performance tonight as he had no axe to grind about the manager or players and he was making favourable comparisons with the way we played in the recent goalless draw.

I was there and thought Dorrans was our best player by a mile. McCann worked away with little support and Thomas, Todd and Dow were poor and overrun in midfield. Not a lot between the teams but due to lack of options in midfield we tended to pass the ball sideways and backwards.

I didn't think he was that bad either bar the two mistakes. I'd be interested to see the passing stats as he seemed to be the main man to take the ball and start the ball moving forward which invariably means that players in that role are likely to give the ball away more as they're having to make more passes than their team mates especially if he's not always been given an option by a team mate.

Partick cottoned on to the fact there wasn't always an option for him and then tried to press him a lot, one of which ultimately led to the goal.

Although he should have done better at the goal in some respects I'm more bothered about the daft involvement in stoppage time as that's completely avoidable. I know we were very unlikely to score at that point but you're definitely not going to score when the game is stopped and your player is getting involved in nonsense.

Parsfangaz, I will give you a courteous response.

I have listened to many, many interviews of John Hughes and his core belief in coaching is that as long as your team has possession, the other team can`t score.

I was simply stating how obvious it was from watching the first half tonight, just how much he had drilled this into the team. And to emphasise my point, just go and check the BBC stats for the whole game - despite playing away from home, we enjoyed 56% possession.

As for the pitch... are you blind? Players were sliding onto their bums all over the place.

And as for spouting *****, as you put it. Perhaps, you would like to say that to my face when I am back in the town. I may be 66, but I guarantee you that you would have a broken nose before you finished the sentence.

The snide and pathetic bickering on here really makes me sick. I have been on dotnet for yonks, but my patience with some of you guys is wearing very thin.

I look at the conversations on East End Bounce and compare them to what is going on here and it is like night and day.

I am a fairly sociable guy. I hate conflict, but I try to speak openly and honestly as I see things. I spent a big chunk of my life as a boss, so I can handle criticism.

This is a forum; you don`t have to agree with anything I say. I get that but be civil. I am getting old and I don`t want to be wasting what valuable time I have left on drivel being spouted by manchildren.

Dotnet increasingly is home to nasty little people who can`t handle criticism, who have no tact, no understanding, or sensitivity to other people`s feelings.

It is fast becoming a bit of a slum neighbourhood. I don`t know if I want to hang around here much longer.

Ach if people disagree with my view then it's all fair game, I'd just appreciate if there was some context behind some of the stuff that's said.

I don't dislike Yogi, and I don't think I've said anything particularly bad about him in this thread. It was a very frustrating night and a poor performance but our season won't be defined by it, would've been nice to have a distraction from the league though.

As for the pitch... are you blind? Players were sliding onto their bums all over the place.

And as for spouting *****, as you put it. Perhaps, you would like to say that to my face when I am back in the town. I may be 66, but I guarantee you that you would have a broken nose before you finished the sentence.

The snide and pathetic bickering on here really makes me sick. I have been on dotnet for yonks, but my patience with some of you guys is wearing very thin.

I look at the conversations on East End Bounce and compare them to what is going on here and it is like night and day.

I am a fairly sociable guy. I hate conflict, but I try to speak openly and honestly as I see things. I spent a big chunk of my life as a boss, so I can handle criticism.

This is a forum; you don`t have to agree with anything I say. I get that but be civil. I am getting old and I don`t want to be wasting what valuable time I have left on drivel being spouted by manchildren.

Dotnet increasingly is home to nasty little people who can`t handle criticism, who have no tact, no understanding, or sensitivity to other people`s feelings.

It is fast becoming a bit of a slum neighbourhood. I don`t know if I want to hang around here much longer.


You took the words right out of my mouth...

But im awfy glad ye wurny kissin me.

Im surprised at the amount of negativity today, and bothered that the players are being overly criticised after losing to an exceptionally well taken goal by a team with 6 clean sheets in a row away from home, on a tatty field in a hurricane.

We have some right Peles on this forum pity we cant afford to sign them up.

Post match interviews are generally a load of rubbish tbf. You only have to see some of Solskjaer`s post match comments
over the past few months.

PARrot, you have the happy knack of putting things in perspective with a dash of humour. It has been rightly said that, for all our possession, we didn`t create much. Well, neither did Thistle and it took an individual error and a wee piece of magic to settle the game. The conditions didn`t help but we competed well all over the pitch which will hopefully serve us well for the rest of the season.

Great post, Oz. Don't let the bassas grind you down. 🙂

As for the game, I'm disappointed that we couldn't bring Thistle back to EEP for a replay, as I think we'd have beaten them, but it means we can now concentrate all our energies on charging up the League. ☺

Graham Dorrans back to his usual standard and costing us the match. He's the best player at the club by some distance though apparently and needs to be treated differently to all the other players 🙄

Grants views being attacked by the same bunch of losers as usual, most of whom probably didn't even watch the match. What a sad life. Personally I'd rate grants opinion quite highly on here for honesty

Yes, he made a mistake which ultimately led to the only goal of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean it would have been 0-0 if he hadn't. Nobody can know how the game might have panned out. We might have won, drawn or still lost. He also gave away possession which cost us a goal in that 5-0 defeat at Ibrox. I think that was fairly inconsequential. We'd have lost anyway. Grant had us set up in a suicidal cavalier formation, which was only ever going to end in a heavy defeat.

In recent games, Dorran has shown he is one of our better players, so let's cut him a bit of slack. Players make mistakes all the time, which often go unpunished at this level. Dorrans was unlucky that his was. We all tend to pounce on mistakes which cost us goals, but usually forgive our players when they miss sitters.

Why is that? Is a goal missed not equal to a goal conceded?

Dorran,s is probably one of the better players at the club and was punished for his mistake last night , hopefully in January we can bring in a midfielder who can graft alongside him as i feel we are a bit lightweight in that department, for all the possession we had we did not create many chances, every time Dom had the ball Thistle doubled up on him , they had obviously done their homework , at times we looked like we had run out of ideas , yes we have improved under Yogi and long may this continue .

I don’t think threatening violence is the way to deal with people who challenge your views though, Oz. Just my opinion.

Some of us read and post on both forums ~ I think you’ll find there’s an even balance of differing opinions, and reactions, on EEB as well. Some dodgy characters too 😉.

Be happy chatting about the Pars everywhere. 😊

To be honest dint think Dorrans had a bad game at all
Unfortunate with the tackle leading to a match winning strike.
There were a few other players who were less involved than Dorrans in the game ,He was always looming for the ball and lotscof involvement ,a few others were not at their best

It was a sloppy first touch but he was quickly pressed by Partick players
I wouldn’t be overly harsh on him

Jorginho has just made a right Graham Dorrans of one in the Chelsea game.

Scary to think we desperately need another centre midfielder in January, we had 4 sitting on the bench Friday night, This squad is so poor it’s actually unbelievable
