Fair play to Partick Thistle. We're sick of hearing football clubs go on about a family atmosphere and other such nonsense. Football was way better back in the day when bigotry reigned supreme and kids weren't allowed within a few hundred yards of the stadium for fear of hearing some suitably emotive language.
We can only assume Partick have yearned for a return of those days and they've decided to do something about it. They've hired a truly terrifying creature to emerge on match days and scare the living bejeezus out of anyone who ain't hard enough to deal with it.

Unsurprisingly, there's been an awful lot of reaction to it but we were particularly tickled with this one.
