    Queen of the South
  1. The Queen of the South Thread

    Thought he was really good for us, Had fantastic pace but, as I think he is trying to point out, knew how to finish too - just ask some Partick fans. What he says rings true i.e. this is football it's how it is just get on with it. Brannigan certainly was of that ilk and I remember him more than once speaking publicly - and negatively - about Weatherston's attitude and lack of commitment. It was quite clear he didn't like Weatherston very much based on his social background as he referred to that too. He and Naysmith are very similar when it comes to being negative in public about players. More importantly though it's high time that some people who attend football finally realise that players are only human and have feelings and emotions and that they should remember this before moronically verbally abusing them. So don't just pay 'lip service' to the tragic story of Chris Mitchell and others but make it a catalyst to change attitudes and behaviours.

    According to the OS Lyle has not yet recovered from his 'knock'. Over the years I have generally thought a 'knock' to be not a major injury and on average take a couple of weeks - 3 at very most - to overcome. Seems Del has had this one for some weeks now and is not yet fit. There has been no mention of a more serious injury by the Club. Is this yet another example of Naysmith 'freezing out' a high profile player- in this case a true Club legend - who he is not happy with or has had words with ?

    I suggest you go and watch the performances against Rangers particularly the 3-0 mauling in April - best complete team performance I have ever seen - as well as the 2-0 in the December. prior. You will not be able to deny the slick, pacy, incisive and attractive football on display there. Not forgetting the play-off performance at Ibrox. The move for the opener there - to equalise in the tie - was superb and took no more than 30 seconds, The only time the ball was in the air was Danny's superb cross expertly headed home by Del Boy. These were not isolated performances by the way. I often watch these games to remind how good we were then. A bitter-sweet experience now. Naysmith does not approach football that way which makes it a chore to watch - even with Dobbie. In fact, Naysmith's incompetence is masked by Dobbie and his goals. Without him we would be fighting to avoid the relegation play-off spot.

    Do you mean Scally or me ? Either way, it's the weekend just chill !
  5. The Queen of the South Thread

    Ach well, maybe not, There is another 'Neil' looking for a job though. Let's give him a try.

    1-0 Ayr ! Scally in please !

    Agree about Jimmy Miller. Joined from Aberdeen and went to Motherwell after us. A number of that team moved up a level. As well as Miller, Crawford Boyd went to Hearts, John Dempster to St. Mirren and Billy McLaren to Hibs. I can't remember exactly but I think Tommy O;Hara went to Boston and then Motherwell on his return or vice versa. I'm sure there would have been interest in Peter Dickson too but he did not want to go full-time. Mike Jackson could spot a player and knew how to get the best out of them - a good and proper football manager.

    I know QoS_1919 won't like this but they are actually disrespecting the video and its' content they originally posted. Your last line is spot on. Once watched, the video leads you to reflect and ponder in a quiet way, not necessarily to launch into a widespread discussion.
  9. The Queen of the South Thread

    That's quite unreasonable. Seems to me people were just pointing out that it worked contrary to your belief, not pointing out a mistake. Take it as a positive i.e. it can be viewed ,rather than a negative. Rather than cajoling others, what is it YOU have to say on something that appears to be very important to you ?
  10. The Queen of the South Thread

    Not sure what you mean. I watched the video you posted - it works.
  11. The Queen of the South Thread

    Probably quite sensible for him to get 'a foot in ' the media door. He may need it some day.
  12. The Queen of the South Thread

    That's the point I have been trying to make but maybe didn't put the 'meat on the bones' as you have - great research - which hopefully will clarify the situation for others.
  13. League Leaders V QOS

    Naysmith raging in post-match interview blaming players 100% for not carrying out game plan that had been worked on all week. There will be recriminations once he has watched the video back. Such a positive guy. Maybe Del will get back in after all !
  14. League Leaders V QOS

    It's because of Dobbie Naysmith is still in this job and we're not in the relegation play-off place.
  15. The Queen of the South Thread

    Always supportive of the team but will never take to this Manager and his methods, sooner he is gone the better as far as I am concerned. Your second sentence is quite accurate as Naysmith said as much in an interview at the beginning of the season. A Manager's job is to pick the best players available and I don't think he has been doing that - not just with Lyle, by the way. The mindset of Naysmith - which seems to be ' Del's in his last season so he's not up to it anymore' - has it seems spread to supporters too. Can someone identify the point at which having been 'on fire' with Dobbie last season and the beginning of this one that Lyle suddenly became a passenger and was relegated to the bench for no obvious reason ? As previously stated, I could understand it if he was lazy, unfit, slow and not contributing to the team but that's not what I see from him, do you ?
