  1. Peterhead v Dumbarton

    They dont take preference over Saturday League games but would over any midweek ones. Two attempts per midweek after the first rearrangement until it gets played. Usually Monday / Wednesday though it can be Tuesday / Wednesfay if the clubs agree it.
  2. QoS vs Partick Thistle

    The 3G doesnt freeze until about -5C anyway which is beyond the extent of the covers usefulness. Notwithstanding Craig Thomson's definition of a 'slippy' pitch, the pitch hasnt once frozen since we got it. The covers would achieve nothing.
  3. QoS vs Partick Thistle

    We dont have pitch covers. The ones we had were sold to Morton when the 3G was installed. They were the special ones made in mesh form to use trapped air to keep the frost off. They were a bit like a fishing net and would have served precisely no benefit with snow anyway. The pitch is cleared of snow and there doesnt appear to be any more forecast for here before the match. And for Flash's benefit he will be happy to know we have plastic snow shovels.
  4. QoS vs Partick Thistle

    Not sure where exactly you are but it was 4C when I left Dumfries at 10am this morning (according to my car anyway). In Castle Douglas I am looking at green fields though they had slightly less snow to start with. I would be surprised if it doesnt go ahead unless we are expecting more snow?
  5. Gretna - Living (and dying) the Dream

    Winners were due to play Queens at home but it had already been agreed it would be at Palmerston if Gretna won, albeit they would have run the game.
  6. Gretna - Living (and dying) the Dream

    A lot of people from Dumfries went to that final (I wouldn't). Mileson bought lots of kids tickets personally and gave them away. Actually we took over 15,000 to the Final and more or less none were neutrals. Only about 500 got to public sale. The rest were bought by season ticket holders, shareholders, semi final ticket holders and voucher holders from the last couple of League games. Granted lots of them were cases of regular fans bringing their mums, dads, partners, grandparents, etc and lots of it was exiles coming back from all over the World for such a one off occasion but they were pretty much all people who genuinely would consider Queens their first choice team.
  7. Confirmed January Transfers

    Queen of the South sign Scotland u21 centre back Kyle Cameron on loan from Newcastle United for the rest of the season.
  8. The Queen of the South Thread

    Tick tock, tick tock, it's very nearly New Signing o'clock.
  9. The Queen of the South Thread

    There is no great issue around Dumfries surely? Travel seems fine to me. Main roads are fine. I am working in Castle Douglas this week and the A75 is clear. Palmerston has a couple of cm of snow on it but that wont take much shifting. If it doesnt go naturally they will move it. I know roads are bad North of Moffat but the motorway is open now and players are going up and down to training. Unless we are expecting more bad weather I dont really expect any problems.

    More tickets made available........ Amended Match Arrangements
  11. When did your team last score 6 goals ?

    That one however is before my time of attending away games. Not scarred by it.
  12. Livingston - all the threads merged

    How many are you allowed from one club at the same time? St. Mirren currently have 2 from Celtic. If you dont share a division then 2 std or emergency loans + 1 Development from one club. If you do share a division then only 1 std or emergency + 1 development. We have had two on loan from St Johnstone all season up to this week (1 std, 1 dev).
  13. When did your team last score 6 goals ?

    Five nations dont take place in October so they certainly werent winning a Grand Slam. Possibly playing an Autumn Test though. Edit - looked it up - Rugby World Cup Semi Final at Murrayfield. Scotland lost 9-6 to England.
  14. When did your team last score 6 goals ?

    7-1 in Oct 1991. I was there.
  15. Livingston - all the threads merged

    Standard & Emergency Loans = 5 in total over the season and max of 4 at one time. Only 1 at a time and 2 in total can be born before 1st Jan 1994. Development Loans = 4 at any one time. Foreign Loans dont count against quota limits. Technically a temporary release rather than a loan. You could therefore in theory have 8 domestic loans at a time.
