Today Partick Thistle have announced the sacking of manager Alan Archibald due to broken down relationships between him and board members over the season's transfer budget. Partick's look for a new man didn't take long as legendary manager Ciaran Haughey was snapped up after he left Dagenham & Redbridge because he told the board "to suck a poo".

Ciaran Haughey was very excited about the prospects of becoming Partick Thistle manager and was very much anticipating the chance to work with players such as Lyle Taylor and Aaron Taylor-Sinclair.

Aaron Taylor-Sinclair

Haughey has set himself very reasonable objectives which follow as

1. avoid relegation
2. reach the semis if the league cup
3. reach the quarters of the Scottish cup

Mr. Haughey (PC Plod) is looking to make new signings for the upcoming season but due to budget restrictions it's going to be a tough season ahead
Good luck, The world renowned manager is back on the scene :D
The legend has returned! :D
Plod's going to win the Champions League in his first season

Partick Thistle did not have the biggest of summer transfer windows only making 2 signings, both free agents. Craig Gordon, the former Sunderland and Scotland keeper has signed with the Jags. They also managed to snap up David Silva, a right wing from the Cape Verde Islands who was released by Scottish side Kilmarnock.

During the transfer period Partick sold striker Kris Doolan for £110,000. Kris was an important player at Thistle but Haughey felt he was no longer needed at the club and when the offer came in he was more than happy to accept.

Partick's start to the new season began with a game at home to Dundee United. The jags ran out 2-1 winners giving them a good start to the new campaign. Partick had a good August in terms of results losing only 1 of their 5 games. A 3-0 loss to motherwell was not good for the club but 2 wins and 2 draws was acceptable enough for the new manager
good start and great win against Dundee United

Partick Thistle today lost at the hands of Glasgow derby rivals Celtic. The Bhoys ran out 1-0 winners thanks to an 86th minute penalty. Captain Scott Brown (above) slotted home the spot kick to give the champions a much needed 3 points. The jags had played exceptionally well throughout the match and felt very hard done by to lose to a late penalty for a soft challenge.

Manager Ciaran Haughey said he felt his players could have not played any better than the way they did and that the where just simply out classed. He also added that they would put this game behind them and move on to next weeks encounter at pittodrie were they will play Aberdeen and hope to pick up some well needed points. This defeat to Celtic however left Thistle sitting 7th in the league just outside the top half of the table. Haughey said "the month of October is over now we can only look on to this month now (November) and try and win as many games as we can. We have some quality players in that dressing room who are all desperate to kick on and win games for this club."
