You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

Every group of supporters has an opposition player that they single out for "special attention", usually a back-handed compliment because they are good players. Owen Coyle fits that description. He'll always be remembered for scoring an extra-time winner for Dundee United to relegate Thistle in the 1995/96 play-off but between March 1986 and October 2004 he scored 23 goals in 20 of the games he played against Thistle for Dumbarton, Clydebank, Airdrie, Dundee United and Motherwell. Thistle lost 10 of them and won only 2. He also scored 2 goals against Thistle in the final of the Tennent's Sixes in January 1993 but Thistle got the last laugh!
