Thistle legend George Wall's regular football column... 

Largs are going into this Saturday's game full of confidence.
Murdo McKinnon is the new manager at Pollok, and he was surprise choice in my book.
From a coaching perspective, he has a good reputation, and he has brought in former Ladeside manager Budgie McGhie as his assistant.
It is 25 years ago since Largs beat Pollok at Newslandfield in the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup in what was a golden season for us (1993-94).
I was desperate for football at the time and was in and out of the team.
I was out of action that day and I said to President George Pratt that I would be leaving - but after the game George came up to me and said 'You are going nowhere!'
We also played Pollok in the quarters final in the West of Scotland Cup quarter final in a Monday night fixture in 1990. 
I played in the 3-2 game, and I think we were 2-0 down, and had to fight back once we had settled ourselves down.
We were the better side and we destroyed them in the end, with Jackie Rafferty scoring a stunning goal to clinch the victory.
We then played Lesmahagow in the semis, before beating Renfrew in the final.
I think over recent years Pollok have flattered to deceive. They have signed a lot of big name players but they never seem to sustain it consistency wise.
I was at last week's Pollok v Kilbirnie match. Kilbirnie lost a goal after only five minutes then another two within five minutes before half time. By then, the game was well and truly over.
Pollok never really had to work hard but I thought they were dangerous on their flanks though.
Their centre half is good in the air and comes up for all set pieces, and they move the ball about well.
It should should be a good game next week.
The incentive for Pollok is if they win they go level on points with Largs who are sitting 3rd at the moment, but the way Largs are playing at the moment taking six off Kilbirnie and seven off Cumnock, I am sure they are thinking 'Bring it on!'.
It is a good draw for Largs in the Scottish Cup - a home tie with St Rochs .
I don’t think any of the ties will throw up any surprises.
St Roch's have been on good form of late though with a 5-1 win over Kello, and won their last Scottish Cup tie v Luncarty 3-0. 
Largs will be delighted to get the home draw on 26 January, and it is good news for the club as it means three home games in January with some other big league matches against current league leaders Hurlford and 2nd placed Clydebank.
