    There's a new club thread on L2 forum. Some comment in there about it. Suppose we hve to get out of here sometime

    We'll see how it plays out. I doubt very much if Gus will be worrying too much about the following season, for two reasons. Firstly, if he's learned anything it'll be that players use us as a springboard to someting better so there's always a risk that it doesn't get past season 1. Secondly, if it doesn't go well and we drop down Gus most likely will be letting someone else have a go. As for squad development, the change to U17-then-Development was catstrophic for us. As we'll no doubt see in the Right Said Fred cup lower league Colts teams will get trampled. Hopefully the new set-up for 18s and the return of The Strollers will help clubs like ours make the transition better. Three cheers for young Malky. On the upside, expectations are so low right now it could be an enjoyable season, in parts at least.

    It’s worth remembering players are leaving other clubs too. We’ve had loans from Hearts, Hibs, Morton, Thistle and St Mirren recently.

    Good man. I expect by now this thread has gone viral and the twitter server is in meltdown.

    Word of the Day Superb! Mr Braveheart will indeed be grateful. Your defence is justified. I expect you'll be getting a visit from The Spider soon whose mockery was a little more cutting than my modest correction. I sense he's ploughing through the Oxford as we speak. Enjoy your flat, warm beer. Sante!

    Admire your work Major but Allez Les Stripes just doesn't work the same. Your words echo the plight of our club at the moment. How to keep the best of the past without holding back the future. QPFC have always been a giving club and it's important we can find room in our hearts for the Uncouth. Say a prayer for them. Yours in sport Monsignor BYOS #jesuis'oops

    And bowler hats are strictly optional nowadays. Need to attract more young chaps like yourself Ben Reilly.

    Ahem! Hoops. Stripes are the uniform of commoners. Looking forward to it myself. Would love to see the IRN BRU colours back for the second strip too.

    I was gutted they didn't get promoted this year. That would have gave us a derby game. Still, we've got The Rovers down too so they can stop pretending about their relationship with Airdrie. I think ARFC is the team we've had most fixtures against ever. Great wee club.
  12. Creating an atmosphere in the league 2

    The (very) yung team were afforded a fair bit of courtesy by G4S at Hampden and it did cross my mind that they were probably having more fun at our place than they would be allowed at home. Stenny is a "community" club of course so I think it's big of them to provide an outlet for those poor souls with intense anger management issues whilst at the same time practising their skill at knuckle dragging which will benefit their job opportunities at the local pubs and clubs. Go Stenny!

    'Tis indeed. More than disappointing. An enforced spell on the bench early in the season seemed to cool the fire that was his engine. Skilful, great shot, space maker, worked hard off the ball. He was the best chance we had to build a replacement for McKernon but as with many others his non-compliance was a bigger issue rather than letting him flourish. Hope he gets his desire for the game back at Kilby. It's a credit to EK that they can attract players of Brady's quality when they haven't a coach in place yet.

    Key points were: Club is financially healthy on an operating basis Committed to the ongoing community/youth/ladies teams Gus MacPherson and his support network are working hard in preparation for the start of the season. The club maintains it's position that announcements will be made regarding player movements when formally allowed. NDAs are in place between the SFA and QPFC regarding the ongoing stadium issue. Regular meetings taking place. No further information at this time. New club president inaugurated - Gerry Crawley. This is a routinely timed rotation. The team manager/players weren't in attendance - members only. That's perfectly normal and consistent.
  15. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Airdrie v Celtic 1995 final on SKY 403 right now if anyone's interested.
