pin.png18-Sep-2021 new.png The Life And Times Of Firhill Park - 112 years ago today Thistle played their first-ever match at Firhill, the stadium of dreams, the palace of the gallus. It's the place we've called home since 1909, but there's a lot more to the old ground than just Partick Thistle. Which Olympic champion ran at Firhill? Which Jag was born closest to the ground? Heard about the time we burned the pitch? Firhill's stories are as weird and wonderful as the club itself; read all about it →
pin.png01-Sep-2021 media-report.png BIO EXTRA - As it stands, our 2,000 player's A-Z entries are kinda mechanical, which was the only practical way to deliver so many of them. You will maybe have noticed that a few of the latest news entries are highlighting that 'Bio Extra' tabs have been introduced, the idea being that our somewhat mechanical head entries are supplemented with a more soulful sentence/paragraph or two to paint a picture of the character, perhaps the playing style and a little about the career / life of the man. To write entries for so many players will take some doing, but the slow and sure journey has begun!
pin.png22-Aug-2021 media-report.png Revamping the H2H section to link-in the match hubs database was an immense undertaking, but today the deed is done.

The scorers charts within now follow our standard squad stats design, meaning that the top dog gets his photie in there too!

21-Sep-2021 update.png Huge thanks to Juniors expert Tom McGouran for running his eyes over our Firhill Diary work-in-progress. FIFTY FIVE new games have been added today almost fast-forwarding the undertaking to near completion. As well as this, several results and dates have been confirmed. Excellence.
21-Sep-2021 update.png HELP! What was the score? thanks to TM for alerting us to an advert for Perthshire v Thistle, scheduled for 4th May 1905. No outcome reported as far as we can see, so a description entry has been placed in our wanted list per the link.
