teamline notes
  • Teamlines per GH, OH concurs (albeit in a different order).
  • The SR report contends that Shire's goalie was "Burden" but FH backs up Hunter.
dubious goals panel
  • Overall, the OH says Miller (2), Fleming, Friel and L. Proudfoot scored for Thistle, but we haven't found such a combination. Indeed, we've found no one paper naming all 5 scorers. We've decided to largely stick with the provider of our teamlines (GH) who name 3 of the scorers. First goal: GEP says Friel, GH says Fleming, FH says Bennett. We stick with Fleming and this is ticks off one of the OH. Second goal: GH says Friel, FH says Fleming. We stick with Friel and, again, this is ticks off one of the OH. Third goal: GH says scrimmage, FH suggests Paul. We therefore go with Paul, as it's better than nothing. Fourth goal: Both GH and FH agree with Miller, and this ticks off a third from the OH. Fifth goal: No press reports that we've seen commit to naming a scorer. With 2 left to be ticked off from the OH (Miller and Proudfoot) we take a punt on Lawrence Proudfoot since he's the only 1 of the 4 not to be credited so far. This is obviously a far from ideal analysis, but it's the best we can come up with in the circumstances, for now at least. In terms of the scoreline, the EC reports 7-0 but is best ignored as it stands alone in comparison with all other contemporary press.
