Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

Ellison was doing the rounds on Social Media this week after he celebrated at the Morecambe manager after scoring.

A big loss no doubt, very professional individual, good luck in your future career.

Re: Good news?

I think at our level we have to consider the potentially devastating impact the 2022 Qatar World Cup will have on attendances. Do we really want to be playing when casual fans have daily free-to-air football to watch?

A November/December break in 2022/23 season might be useful....

Re: Good news?

There are of course those who can't have the jab, they rely on society doing their bit. If you can it is your moral duty as a citizen to get your Covid jab, to help those who are less fortunate than you. If you are not willing to get it then it speaks volumes about you as a person none of it good. A...

Re: Good news?

My genuine concern for sport is that people after 8/12 months tend to find other things to do so I think attendances across the board may not recover immediately? The sale of tickets to watch England play cricket this summer would suggest an opposite effect, people are really eager to return to nor...

Re: Squad assessment

The best Watson teams were a similar set up. Solid battles in the middle and pace out wide with hard working lads up top. From what I saw this season it felt like we lacked that solid spine. We needed another solid centre mid who owned the centre circle and let no one through and a rock in central d...

BTW in Scotland they say 'jag' not 'jab'. I heard that the Scottish Government was giving everyone there a Jag - now that might influence a referendum!
And Partick Thistle are called The Jags for obvious reasons.

Re: Season declared null and void

Since April last year making long term plans has been a gamble, whether booking a holiday or planning to see friends or investing in a promotion push. I expected once we started we would finish but plenty on here didn't. If a PortChat poster can see it as a potential outcome then a Football club man...

Re: All matches off

Has anyone asked Vanarama how they feel about the league they sponsor being so cavalier?

The only way we lose face is if we don't back up our words with actions. I'd rather we were expelled from all football but stood by our convictions then bottled it and were not punished.

My point is I don't want the acceptance that on the pitch we are where we are!! As a player, manager, and now supporter I have a fire in my belly!!, and am sick of seeing us play pub teams with better players ,unless I see the same attitude on the pitch, me and many like me can find other things to...
