  1. The result was never in doubt, which is possibly why we looked alright at times - Killie knew that too.
  2. I thought we were alright today if a bit lackluster. We just weren't remotely threatening going forward but what can you expect when you have one striker in the entire squad? Ferrie was excellent and kept the scoreline respectable, but the goal we conceded was really poor and I still can't understand why Fox isn't getting a game. Fairly entertaining game, not a terrible performance by any stretch of the imagination but nothing to suggest our recent poor form is likely to change any time soon.
  3. They are, but you won't be needing to worry about that.
  4. It was terrible, to be fair - probably the worst I've ever seen. This was the picture for a corner at the other end, for example, and we also missed our goal, the penalty, and plenty other parts of the game:
  5. Also, Ellis may have signed Fox, but he refuses to play him...
  6. I can't wrap my head around the decision to take Connell off with 5 minutes to go - he was by far our best player today, and the only one who looked like creating anything. Why replace him with Moore when we're a goal down?
  7. Daft post, at least to anyone reading it who has a brain. A full time football club who are hoping to be right in the mix for promotion as you say should be taking more than 2 points from 9 against the bottom 3 sides in the division. We've won 2 matches since August and manage to absolutely shite the bed time and time again - if that's not grounds for criticising the manager then I don't know what is.
  8. Today's result was incredibly predictable to anyone who's been watching Queen's Park this season, and that's the problem.
  9. It's probably the closest thing to a derby in this league, regardless of how supporters of each team feel about it (personally I've always been pretty neutral when it comes to Clyde), and we now have a head of commercial operations whose job it is to get as many people interested in the club as possible so it makes sense that we'd try to use that to sell tickets.

  11. There are some really weird posts in this thread. Nobody is suggesting that we should be winning every game just because we're now full time; people are pointing out and discussing the specific reasons why we're dropping points quite so consistently. I hardly think Queen's supporters are entitled (and the Falkirk comparisons are ridiculous) just because we recognise the mistakes which are being made both in the team selection and the way we then play, and we'd rather stop chucking wins away like that.
  12. People are allowed to be disappointed about taking 3 points from a potential 9 so far against the bottom 2 teams in the league, especially when managerial decisions (particularly today) are a big factor in that. We should have considerably more points than we're currently sitting on.
  13. Like the look of that lineup. I thought Longstaff looked excellent in the second half against Dumbarton when we were in control of the game, which is how tomorrow really should play out.
  14. Your guess is as good as mine I'm afraid. Nobody seems to know, but I'd rather we didn't have to share beyond this season as well.
  15. You're right about Killie not being able to play on the Sunday, but the Thistle statement does mention that you wanted the Friday rather than the Saturday to make sure the pitch is in better condition. I did notice when we played Alloa a couple of weeks back that it's starting to look a bit dodgy, hopefully it doesn't get too bad though (for both teams' sakes).
  16. The fixture list between now and Christmas is very interesting. I would actually say that anything less than 9 points from our next 3 matches - East Fife & Clyde at home, then Peterhead away - would be slightly disappointing. After the cup game against Killie we go into a much tougher run of matches against Falkirk at home, then Airdrie and Montrose away. It's certainly going to be exciting anyway!

  18. My post was more tongue in cheek than anything else, I do of course recognise that they were very different circumstances! Our defensive issues are clear to see. In the first 6 games of the season we conceded a total of 2 goals, and in the following 6 we've conceded 12 which is a frightening difference. Unfortunately Lee Kilday simply isn't good enough, and has been directly responsible for a number of these - the first today was another example of that. It was excellent to see Morrison back in though and I thought he had a solid enough game. For me, we should be pairing him with Charlie Fox at the back. I'm not sure why he was dropped today.
  19. Cove got a man sent off against us earlier in the season and were then easily brushed aside. We did the same today, and still managed to come back from behind to take a point. Happy with that, even if the performance itself wasn't spectacular

  21. In my defence, not only do I not remember posting my message, but it seems to be timestamped at some point between the Killie and Israel games so glue might be closer to the truth than you realise Regardless, it was less a criticism of Muir and more praise for Ferrie. I rate him very highly and will maintain that from what we've seen of him so far he's at the very least as good as Muir, but I do agree that making any drastic changes in that position would be daft and unnecessary.
  22. I didn't realise Robson had previously played for Falkirk, that one is my mistake!
  23. Your definition of half is interesting considering only 3 of our starting 11 on Saturday have ever played for Falkirk. EDIT: this becomes 4 out of 18 when you include the entire match day squad. One of those was Bob McHugh, who seems to be pretty much universally held in higher regard by your fans than ours.
  24. The post he was replying to was daft to be fair. It clearly assumed that we've only won 5 out of 10 games while playing at our best, when in fact we've been relatively poor for a while now and have still managed to remain undefeated (while maintaining the best defensive record in the league, and one of the better goalscoring ones too). I don't think we're necessarily a better side than Falkirk - I'd be very surprised if you don't turn it around at some point actually, and I'd expect the title race to go right down to the wire, but the only "high horsery" on display here is the suggestion that you should be somehow scooshing this division with that squad.
