Their approach to the game has won rave reviews while bringing considerable success and they are determined to stick to their principles.
With three victories from their opening 11 Premiership fixtures, Alan Archibald's side have shown that playing the beautiful game can be rewarded in a competitive division.
"Winning ugly has never been a part of the Thistle mantra and won't become one now, despite this group of players competing in Scotland's top flight for the first time.
"To be honest, I don't think we know any other way," defender Conrad Balatoni said. "If we started booting balls long and playing percentage football, not only would the fans be outraged, a lot of the players would be outraged.
'We demand that we get the ball on the ground and pass it and create chances the right way. Sometimes it doesn't always work and we might get beaten. But we are trying to rectify that so when we are on top we can kill teams off and score goals.
"I think playing long balls is probably one of the last things on my mind. I was taught well at Hearts about passing football. I know sometimes playing it long has to happen and I will do it but I try to keep the ball on the deck. It is a 50-50 when it goes in the air and the defenders in this league are a lot more experienced and can win it, and teams counter attack."
Thistle may have received numerous plaudits for their approach but they have not always claimed the points they might have, with wins too often slipping through their grasp.
However, Balatoni is confident Archibald's side, who visit Aberdeen tomorrow night, will learn from their frustrations.
"You always want to win," he said. "It is disappointing coming in after a game saying 'we played those guys off the park for long spells of the game but came away with a draw, or nothing'.
"We have to learn from our mistakes. A lot of these boys have never played top-flight football. You take it on the chin and try to rectify it in the next game."
