You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little


Here is a collection of Thistle-related press items and curios to surprise, inform and entertain.

It’s all here – fan loyalty, fan dissatisfaction, the rigours of getting to away matches, pitch invasions, intense club rivalries, squabbling amongst clubs, criticism of officials, criticism of football administrators, taunting opposition fans and players, illegal betting, team mates falling out – and much more.

Society has changed beyond all recognition in the last 140 years but in some respects it seems there’s nothing new in football!
