The Terrors found Thistle goalkeeper Scott Fox in excellent form as the newly-promoted hosts secured a point - and McNamara will have been grateful to his own stopper, Radoslaw Cierzniak, for preserving parity at the other end.

McNamara, a former Partick player and manager, said: "We had better possession in the first half, then they changed it and caused us problems.

"I can see teams having problems here with the way they play. They are comfortable on the ball and well organised."

Cierzniak added: "For the manager, this was very important and it's a shame we couldn't win. It's one point and we could have lost today as well.

"We had a lot of chances and this was maybe a good result for us. I think it's all right."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
