Yabba's Turd

Partick Thistle V Motherwell Tue 2 Feb 19:45

Recommended Posts

TBH, I don't really see much of a clash between our away kit and Thistle's home. Dark, mostly solid claret vs Yellow and red stripe.

a few weeks ago I would have put us down for a win but the jags have hit some form so I don't think it going to be an easy game

 

I would be happy with a point if I am honest but my fingers are crossed for a win

 

as for the strips, I don't really care it's who in them that counts

Whats the parking like at Firhill, I'm driving there for the first time?

I usually park somewhere near the 5 a side pitches/lidl no bother and walk over. 5 min walk.

It's not raining in Glasgow just now. I feel as if games get called off a lot more often now than 15-20 years ago despite pitch protection that the clubs have available. Probably were as many games called off back then, just my perception...

I think you're right - they do seem to get called off more often these days. Just pull up some of the youtube videos of games like Celtic vs Motherwell when Wullie P was playing, and the Parkhead pitch looks like a ploughed field. Whether or not it's a good thing to be playing on that I suppose is up for debate.

Pitch inspection at Parkhead tomorrow.

It's to get a lot worse before kick off tomorrow.

I think it's like everything else tbh, more concern about health and safety. Probably a good thing, but there was always something special about a good old battle in the mud

Give me a game in the rain on a shitty muddy park any day before a game in a gale force wind. Cant remember ever enjoying watching a game in high winds.....total farce!! prefer it to be off tbh.

It's not wet , it's biblically wet and blowing a gale

If it carries on like this the game will be a total lottery,

Gutted actually. Only been to a couple of aways and everything had lined up perfectly for this one. Ah well. Not surprised mind you. It is insanely wet and wild out here.

Right decision to have the game off, unreasonable to expect anyone to travel on days like this. Summer football definetly the way ahead.

SPFL season currently runs from August 1st to the Cup final on 21st of May. Almost 10 full months. If you want summer football with that length of season you either need games in December or February.

 

The annual pitch renovation would also need to take place in those 2 months off during winter when the grass won't grow. So I imagine everyone would need to go artificial surfaces.

Looked at the weather forecast last night and knew there was no chance of the game being on. You can't play football in 40mph winds, never mind the rain, it would be a farce.

 

Everyone can support Kilmarnock this afternoon!

We're closer to Kilmarnock than we are United.

If United win today there is a good chance we would either be bottom on Xmas day or going up there on boxing day with a chance of going bottom.

 

We should all be supporting Kilmarnock.
