  1. If he doesn't have some sort of burger related nickname I don't want to live on this planet any more.
  2. Very raw but has all the physical attributes to be a real talent with the right coaching. Tall, strong and fast. He also loves a rampaging run forward. Down sides are his positional sense is as bad as I’ve seen, always caught wrong side. This leads to him giving away multiple avoidable fouls. He reminds me a lot of Kevin Holt. The key difference being Holt was given a regular run and improved massively over time. Rooney has done neither. It’s probably 50/50 whether he’ll make it at this level. I’d have been happy enough for him to stay, but equally I’m not too fussed he’s gone. Wish him well though, he seems an honest big lad.

    Who is Dykes gesturing towards after his goal, is that home or away supporters behind the goal?

    Fair enough. I’m sure a few of your fellow Saintees popped into our thread and commented that he’d looked a bit shaky. He’s obviously finding his feet if there is interest from down South.
  7. Rating your team's signings

    Alan Martin - It's fair to say he hasn't lived up to the hype. He arrived looking rather out of shape and unfit and then proceeded to pick up an injury that he tried to play through. The results weren't good. Shown enough in glimpses that he could do a job but needs to get fit for next season 5/10 Andy Stirling - Another one who looked rather rotund upon his arrival. He has never really looked like he has wanted to be at Queens and will probably get his wish after a series of unspectacular performances. 3/10 Callum Fordyce - He has done very well in the main putting in strong performances at CB and RB. We were certainly weaker without him during his absence through injury. 7/10 Joe Thomson - Took a while to get going after not playing much in the first half of the season. He is now back to his best and if it wasn't for a certain Mr Dobbie would easily be the best player in the team 8/10 Shaun Rooney - You can't help but feel there is a player in there somewhere as he has all the physical attributes. His reading of the game is appalling though, and despite the excitement his marauding runs cause, you never feel like he knows what he is going to do at the end of them. 4/10 Dom Thomas - Another player returning for a second spell on loan and largely hitting the same heights as before. 7/10 Josh Todd - Apparently was a standout in our recent victory at Tannadice, a result that has to go down as one of our best of the season. He's been completely anonymous in the games I have seen though. 3/10 Jason Kerr - Formed an excellent partnership with Fordyce and chipped in with a number of goals as well. I'd be keen for him to return next season as it sounds like he's not quite ready for the step up to the Premiership 7/10 Kyle Cameron - We will be in the market for at least one CB in the summer. Cameron won't be one of them 4/10 Curtis Lyle - Signed as backup and unlikely to play N/A Chris Kane - Started slowly but by the end was striking up an excellent partnership with Dobbie. Really disappointing to see him recalled by St Johnstone where he has already established himself 8/10 Myles Beerman - Hasn't featured much but hasn't really made a case to when he has. Very lightweight. 1/10 James McFadden - Many feared his legs had gone. They were right. 3/10 Nikolay Todorov - Scored one crucial goal from the bench but has looked pretty meh aside from that. I doubt we'll be in a rush to make his signing permanent. 6/10

  9. Morton v Queens - 14/04/2018

    We have a young defence and throwing an even less experienced 'keeper into the equation was only going to end badly. It's no coincidence that the top two teams in the division have vastly experienced goalkeepers. The level we are operating at means it's hard to knock the club's policy in employing a first choice goalie, with a youngster in reserve. In doing so you just have to hope the number one doesn't pick up any long term injuries. Unfortunately that's exactly what happened. Or more accurately three separate medium-term injuries. Should we have tried to bring another goalkeeper in? Possibly, but would we have been able to get anyone in of a similar level to Martin? More likely to have been a youngster from the Premiership with no more experience than Leighfield. I still strongly believe the biggest mistake we made this season in the goalkeeping department was playing Martin when he was injured. Even if it didn't negatively impact his recovery (only he will really know this), it cost us goals at the time and it was embarrassing to watch how immobile he was. Of course our goalkeeping woes coinciding with Lee Robinson kicking his heels on the sidelines at the start of the season didn't help matters. I'm still adamant getting shot of him was the correct decision. I was sick of the sight of him after last season. All in all there are a lot of lessons to be learned from this season, in all areas not just goalkeeper.

    More away games as well please SFA!

    Todd has shown zero interest in tracking back in the games I have seen him in, so I don't think wing-back is a suitable role for him. Also Thomas in central midfield? I agree the formation could be worth a try though. It worked well against Thistle in the cup game and then I don't think we saw it again. If we were to line up that way I'd go with: Leighfield Fordyce Brownlie Cameron Rooney Jacobs Thomson Marshall Dykes Lyle Dobbie With nothing left to play for Lyle should be given every chance possible to get the goals he needs to be our second highest all-time goalscorer.

    Alexander has been excellent when I have seen him, as he was when Hearts romped it a few years back.
