  1. Does anyone know what went on with Dylan Reid? Watching him play for Scotland u17s this evening (along with Cameron Bruce). If I remember right we took him on loan from St Mirren but he was away again very quickly without ever appearing for us. Did St Mirren recall him or did we not fancy him?
  2. Supposedly we'll be in Lesser in time for the league starting, but that seems very ambitious given its current state. Our early League Cup games are likely to be elsewhere, but despite a few rumours on here, nothing is confirmed yet. It won't be Hamilton as Clyde will also be playing there next season.
  3. Not buying, but signing a 50 year lease on 1st June and will be primary tenant so we can develop it to suit our needs.
  4. Does Coyle take the whole season into account, or only consider performances since he arrived? I think that a number of players have performed better in the last few weeks than they had in the months before, particularly in the 4 playoff games. Doyle, Grant, Ferrie and Longridge have been much better recently Did Coyle get something out of them that Ellis and Beuker couldn't, or did they raise there game when it counted most? I imagine there will be a fair few new faces arriving, but are we realistically going to keep just a handful from the current squad and bring in say 15 new players, or will we give new deals to say 75% of the current squad and add a handful of quality signings, perhaps with some of last seasons regulars dropping down the pecking order to be squad players. And would some of those retained be happy to be on the same money but play less often? How will Williamson fit in, we signed him on a 3½ year deal, so he must be in the plans going forward. I dont know the answers to any of the above but it will be a very interesting 6 weeks or so. Obviously some are already under contract as qpfc has listed, and personally I would hope we can keep Fox, Robson, Lyon, Murray. I'd also like us to at least try and bring back Smith and Connell. I wouldn't be disappointed to see any of Doyle, Grant, Longridge, Morrison, Davidson, Quitongo, McHugh back next year if Coyle can get consistent performances out of them. I'd be keen to retain Muir too, partly because he's the last of the "amateurs" but also as I still think he's a decent keeper. I'd also hope we hold on to the young guys on the fringes and develop them further such as Heraghty, Gilles and Bigger. Lastly, who do we try to bring in? There was a rumour on here a few weeks back that Dom Thomas of Dunfermline didn't play against us as he had signed a pre contract with us. No idea if there's any truth to that. Can we tempt any 'bigger' names? Blair Spittal has turned down a new deal at Ross County, could we convince him to drop down a league and come back to us? Greg Stewart was also speculated a while ago as he worked with Coyle in India but he has just signed a 2 year deal with Mumbai City.
  5. was it not Frizzell who was dispossessed by Jack Thomson? I just went back and watched it. Easton passed to Frizzell who was dispossessed by Thomson. Hard to say whether it was Eastons pass or Frizzell not reacting quick enough that was at fault, but both were tiring whereas Thomson was still relatively fresh.
  6. I see QP have just re-tweeted a post from Smith that gives the impression that he won't be here next season. I hope we've at least made him an offer. However if he is moving on then what a way to go out. I wish him all the best wherever he is next season.
  7. I had a similair conversation with Connell. If he can play consistently like he has done in the last fortnight then I'd be delighted if we could bring him in permanently. I would also like us to make an offer to Smith, who just before half time yesterday I thought looked to be tiring, however he was still causing Airdrie (and his brother) problems over an hour later.
  8. Monday morning, alarm goes off, hit snooze so I can go back to the wonderfull dream I was having. Alarm goes off again, wife kicks me till I roll out if bed, look out the window and it's pouring. I've got the usual fight ahead of me of getting the kids up, dressed, fed and out the door in time for school. Then I realised that yesterday wasn't a dream. This might be a great day after all.
  9. 100 free tickets for tonights game have been given to QP in the Community for kids/parents, plus they're putting on a bus from Lesser to Broadwood for them. Quite a late kick off for young kids on a school night but hopefully lots of them take up the offer and get the chance to see us lift a trophy.
  10. He is still contracted to his previous team in India until sometime in June. However, with their season over they have allowed him to 'help us' until he officially leaves them and joins us.
  11. I'm pretty sure Connell was up in the stand with other players not in the squad, I"m certain I could see him milling around the tunnel prior to the game. He came of injured on Saturday and we played out the game with 10 men as we'd used all our subs. I'm assuming he was injured rather than rested/dropped/loan ended (other loanees were in the squad) but whether he will be fit for remaing games or not remains to be seen. Potter mentioned in his interview that he was hoping for some players to be back available for Saturday. However, I agree that he might not be assured of a start on Saturday if he's fit as the three that started (plus Thomson when he came on) worked harder than we're used to seeing from Luka. If it's a similair game plan then he may be left out. Similarly, I said before the game that I thought Jai should start, but by halftime I was convinced that it was right to leave him out the starting lineup, as I dont think we'd have seen the best of him. He did make an impact when he came on though, as did both Thomson and Murray. It won't be easy picking the team for Saturday.
  12. Does anyone know what the filming was for at Saturdays match? Dempster was being interviewed in the stand before the game, and then Coyle was doing the same after the awards. It looked like the same guy was also filming the game from the corner too.
  13. According to Dunfermline website the ticket prices fir Saturday have been reduced to match Wednesday's prices. Fair play to your board for taking on board the criticism they received and reducing prices.
  14. Agree he should be starting on Wednesday as long as he's fit. Didn't see the gesture to Beuker, but saw him acknowledge his dad who was sitting a few rows in front of me (and who left the minute Jai was subbed off )
