Yes and an indictment of the managers appointed by Milne, all of whom are so bad at their jobs that they know fuck all about goalkeeping.

Tbh I used to think that Langfield was probably the best we could do. 

But my view was blinkered by the fact that the players that we signed to compete with him were fucking hopeless - Soutar, Brown (Jason and Scott), Howard etc. All fucking hopeless. It didn't help that the people on this site who were quite rightly trying to tell me and others that we could do better than Langfield, were also quite wrongly trying to claim that shite like Derek Soutar and Mark Howard were better - probably a sign of their frustration but so ridiculous that it undermined their original point of being able to do better than Langfield. 

We also had a dearth of shite in the Scottish league at the time - Makalamby a Belgian International and Scott Fox a Scottish International!!! That these players were internationals only served to elevate Langfield's because he was better than them (but that's not saying much). 

But ultimately it is the managers fault, as they did not strive for better.  OK it took McInnes a year or two, but he did get there. But its not just the goalkeeping, he has always looked to improve across the park.  Whereas previous managers didn't seem to bother, as long as the players were good to have around the place.

Also felt it had a lot to do with our horizons at that time.  For "best we could do" read "good enough for solid second to fourth."

Ambition realised in that respect.

This ^^^^^^

Any ambitions we had were strictly limited by our budget (and if we are being really honest, still are). Langfield, as others have said, was simply the best we could do whilst complying with that budget. And McInnes correctly dealt with other more pressing needs sorting out the quality of the outfield players....Langfield, whilst everyone here would agree was no world-beater, he was also nowhere near the worst goalkeeper ever to play the game and nowhere near the worst ever to represent us specifically.

Of every keeper who played a minimum of one whole season, Langfield was the worst in the seven decades I saw football at Pittodrie by a big margin.

On another subject how do you feel about Scott Wright now @Ten Caat , a footballer you wrote off after a preposterously few number of starts and someone we argued over frequently?

Bit weird that Clangers as GK coach wasn't infected with Covid when all his goalies were ruled out of action?

Sadder than 2nd to 4th was that 7th was the target that had been written into the financial planning, as Fraser informed us at an AGM about 12/15 years ago. The "product" was never Milne's priority, he lied to us at the Capitol in 1996 and the vast majority couldn't believe this simple truth.

Not answering for Ten Caat, but he's not the only one who wrote off Wright.

I did too, as he never seemed to seize his opportunities and seemed to lack the physical requirements to compete in the top division. However he's came back from his latest injury setback and his performances are very encouraging. Which makes me very happy that he's making me eat my words. Long may that continue.

Partick Thistle have named three men's first-team players as the new coaching team for their women's side.

Brian Graham has taken over as manager as well as doubling up as a striker for the Scottish League One club.

Defender Richard Foster will be his assistant, while Thistle midfielder Ross Docherty will become a coach

 

Deary me.

Should get knocked down to 20th place by McGinn this season, but not much chance of dropping further than that for a good few years.

THREE coaches for an enterprise that is impossible to generate profit in?

Bizarre. There must be some sports funding or equality funding or whatever in place to kick start something that insufficient people will ever pay money to go and watch.

Maybe it's some kind of wangle, allowing those players to remain full-time employees.
