  1. Falkirk v Queens

    Better side won. We werent really at the races today. Dobbie worried the keeper from long distance early on but nobody was near enough for the rebound. He should have scored near the end but caught it too well and Burgoyne made a terrific save. In between though, although we had lots of possession we did little with it. Aird should have done better with a couple of 1st half efforts. Cant believe some Falkirk fans are having a go at the ref for Keillor-Davis' sending off. They should be having a go at their player. Utterly stupid. He should have been booked first half and could have no complaint when he eventually was booked. To then haul Maguire back right in front of the ref 2 mins later when you are already 2-0 up is utter madness.
  2. In the hot seat

    Sorry, completely missed that Lennon had officially departed. Thought he was still suspended.

  4. The Queen of the South Thread

    He isn't cup tied.
  5. Sons' sorrow

    Clubs below the Championship can bring in loans from within the SPFL through February too, just as they could through September.
  6. Falkirk v Queens

    He's also scored 13 against Clyde. And 12 against Partick Thistle. (and after last night, 10 against Dundee)
  7. Dundee v Queens

    Dobbie, Dobbie, Dobbie.
  8. The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread

    They arent. They are rigidly enforced on international transfers. If he has played for both Ebbsfleet and Coventry he wont be coming to Ayr. But he might go to Orient because on a domestic transfer its up to the FA what level counts and they dont count non League. Neither do the SFA domestically. You can play for 3 or 4 Lowland League sides in a season but a maximum of two SPFL ones.
  9. Partick v Queens

    Its way before the MacPherson season. Iain Scott was manager I think. MacPherson's team won 1-0 at Thistle in the Scottish Cup though I think with a late Dan Carmichael goal.
  10. The Queen of the South Thread

    This mostly. I think Kerr is better but Semple has a chance and this is a good move for him if there was no imminent likelihood of getting near the Sheffield United first team. County will likely be a Premier League side next season and his international prospects will improve. Good luck to him.
  11. The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread

    One player from a club IN THE SAME DIVISION. Two players from clubs in a different division. Four at a time, though as noted above, max of 2 per club and only 1 per club if in the same division. International loans don't count towards any limits. Technically they are a temporary release from contract and signing elsewhere, not a loan.
  12. Dundee v Queens

    We were much the better side first half and fully merited our lead. The equaliser was a bit cheap and against the run of play. Nice finish though. Second half Dundee had much more of the ball, we got deeper and played more on the break. They did very little with their extra possession though whilst we could have had 2 or 3 more. One excellent tip over from Dobbie, one block at Todd's feet and then someone blocked the rebound on the line, and at least three times Todd cut back from the by-line and couldnt find a Queens player. Would certainly have taken a draw this morning but it feels like a chance missed.
  13. Dundee v Queens

    You cant play in a replay if you werent eligible for the original tie.
  14. Championship Golden Boot

    Well this has aged well. Given that Dobbie and Shankland are both on 18 with 15 games to go my suggestion that it was unlikely anyone would make 20 is looking pretty forlorn! El Bakhtoui, McManus, Doolan, Austin. Haber!! At least I was genuinely joking about including Spence. Has Denny Johnstone even managed 2 games yet?
  15. Queens v Ross County

    Ross County This is our 12th season of sharing a division with them: 1999/00 - 1 draw & 3 Ross County wins 2002/03 - 3 QoS wins & 1 Ross County win 2003/04 - 2 QoS wins, 1 draw & 1 Ross County win 2004/05 - 1 QoS win, 1 draw & 2 Ross County wins 2005/06 - 2 draws & 2 Ross County wins 2006/07 - 2 QoS wins & 2 Ross County wins 2008/09 - 2 QoS wins & 2 Ross County wins 2009/10 - 2 QoS wins, 1 draw & 1 Ross County win 2010/11 - 2 QoS wins, 1 draw & 1 Ross County win (and 2 abandoned!) 2011/12 - 1 draw & 3 Ross County wins 2018/19 - 1 QoS win, 2 draws and 1 to play 2002/03 was our best then with 3 wins of 4 and 9 points. There are 3 other seasons we've managed 7 points though. We can only 8 at best this season though it could potentially be the first time we've ever played a season against them without a loss. Inverness CT This is just our 7th season sharing a division: 1997/98 - 3 QoS wins & 1 ICT win 1998/99 - 2 draws & 2 ICT wins 2002/03 - 1 draw & 3 ICT wins 2003/04 - 2 QoS wins & 2 ICT wins 2009/10 - 1 QoS win, 1 draw & 2 ICT wins 2017/18 - 2 draws & 2 ICT wins 2018/19 - 1 QoS win & 2 draws and 1 to play 1997/98 easily our best season against them with 9 points and three wins. Our record over the years is worse against ICT than it is against County. 03/04 with 6 points is the only other season we've managed more than the 5 we've already got this season. As with County we can't set any records as even winning the 4th game will only give us 8 points but we could again finish the season unbeaten against them for the first time.
