  1. QP v Cowden

    WTF???? Read all about it, read all about it .........................team continue to play at their own ground shocker!!!!! Eh, no explanation required.
  2. QP v Cowden

    Not quite what he said big man.........................they get only travelling expenses so the ones that live further away might get more than that, whilst anyone who lives just round the corner (as the likes of Paul O'Brien did) will hardly get anything. Not too difficult to attract players when they are looking for a stage to display their talents for a future professional deal with another club, and Hampden is quite an appealing stage........................but therein lies our potential problem after next year.

    Celebrate your uniqueness big al as quite possibly the only regular on P&B who doesn't realise (at the time of writing anyweay ) that QP actually own Hampden.

    If we end up with a better deal then absolutely, but remember that this is a game of high stakes poker and we will all sleep better tonight knowing that BYOS has insider knowledge on the plan B that secures our future if this goes pear-shaped.

    We find out exactly why progress is painfully slow?

    and in other news this weekend...................................Queen's knock out the Cup holders https://www.scottishfa.co.uk/scottish-youth-cup-matches/?mid=220693 - in context probably a more sensational result than we had yesterday!

    You may not be that far wrong mate, but if it were me I'd be taking every opportunity to praise any team that puts seven past you. Convincing your good friends from Cowdenbeath that we are actually only marginally less pish than you ain't doing yourselves any favours. Just saying.

    Of course you will and rightly so. It's the duty of every member to give full consideration to something as important as this whether they personally agree with it or not, and I'm sure there will be people who currently think with their heart who would vote with their head when the full facts are put before them should such a meeting ever be called. As someone has already pointed out, when Ross Caven was President he had Committee members reach out to fellow members to informally guage the likely reaction to such a proposal. The fact that nothing came of it at the time suggests that there was insufficient positive feedback to formally propose it. Whether the impending sale of Hampden changes the mood remains to be seen. Until then it's all conjecture and hypothetical debate, but perhaps the waters will become less muddy later this week.

    It's a great point BB and I'm sure it's something the club will be looking at. If the numbers stack up it might even be the factor that swings them towards going pro as the extra income would obviously help offset the increased wagebill, but if they are not already maximising that potential I'd be surprised as surely every possible revenue stream has already been looked at.
  12. The Queen's Park 2018-19 Thread

    Sensational numbers if true BB, but both clubs fall into the "one town-one club" category. I'm not saying that Queen's couldn't replicate that, but there are several astroturf pitches available for hire within a two mile radius of Hampden so we wouldn't enjoy the monopoly that those clubs do.
  13. Queen's Park Vs Berwick Rangers

    Sorry DP but can't agree with you on that one. Yes your guys were poor in the first half, particularly at not pressing high up the field and giving us all the time in the world to play out from the back, but I think anyone who's played for any team even at the lowest Sunday league level would concede that there's nothing worse than having one of your own players sent off for an off the field incident whatever its nature, especially as you are heading for the dressing rooms at half time. You are angry with the way you've all played in the first half and are ready to channel that frustration into a more positive second have display, when you suddenly find out that you've just lost your goalkeeper. Surely you would agree that that has to make a bad situation worse, and makes the manager's job of lifting morale nigh impossible? The thing was that you could see the potential was there. He was the loudest complainer when the penalty was awarded, and then began moaning away at Mortimer when he was fouled at the edge of the area, and continued chirping away at the ref long after that incident. I don't know whether that was out of character for him or not, but he let you guys down today and I'm just surprised that none of you have been having a go at him on here.

    Absolutely agree Syd, but how would turning professional change any of what you just said is my point.
  15. Queen's Park Vs Berwick Rangers

    Fairly comprehensive and accurate summary of the game DP, but curiously you completely omit any mention of arguably the biggest incident of the day - your being reduced to 10 men by an off-field incident. Yes you were three-nil down at half time, but it had taken a penalty, followed by a 25 worldie, followed by a 35 yard "galaxy" to get us there. Don't you think your pitiful second half performance was largely influenced by not only being a man down but by the completely unnecessary altercation that led to that outcome?
