Thistle boss Stuart Davidson is delighted with the excellent start to the season so far but says the real business starts on Saturday at Irvine Meadow in the much anticipated Premier Division opener, 2pm kick-off.
In the West Cup sectional league, Largs scored a superb nine without replay against a sorry Saltcoats outfit on Saturday, then triumphed over old rivals Kilwinning 1-0 on Monday evening.
Thistle occupy top position in the group, and have qualified for the knockout rounds in the West Cup.
William Sewell carried on his scintillating scoring form with a fantastic four against Saltcoats while another new signing in Jamie McKenna notched a hat-trick.
And a Scott Adam penalty was just enough to see off ten men Kilwinning at Barrfields on Monday evening in a closely fought affair. Thistle next won 2-0 at home to Ardeer on Wednesday evening at Barrfields.
Largs have won every pre-season and cup game so far, and after the exodus of ten players from last year's cup final squad, have managed to find their feet and get into the winning mentality.
Despite the good results, Thistle are under no illusions about how tricky the Premiership is going to be.
Arnie said: "The boys should be pleased with their performances - it is all about winning and it is good to get that in your head just now but we need to keep going.
"I was delighted with the victory over Kilwinning which was hard fought for.
"It was a match played at full throttle.
"I said to the players in the dressing room after the game that I want better from them - we should have taken better care of the ball - but overall I have got to be happy.
"We were living on the edge a bit but we kept out discipline and got the all important result.
"Kilwinning manager Chris Strain will be happy with their team's work-rate when they were down to ten men, and they never gave up, but neither did we.
"We defended well when we needed to and we saw the game out."
Thistle memorably put seven past Irvine Meadow in their home fixture last season but it was a much closer state of affairs when Largs picked up a point at Meadow Park in their last league encounter.
Arnie said: "Meadow finished the season brilliantly last season.
"We are still trying to find ourselves but we have had some good results and performances. 
"We can get better.
"I need to help the players as much as possible as they have given me everything so far, and we are casting our eye over new signings."
