  1. Serious scrutiny required after that. Full of praises after not losing a league game in 2020 but it looks like our pro’s can only beat part timers. McKinnon not got answers for any game against decent opposition. The quality and fitness in the squad will win L2. More money spent in the Summer or a change in leadership to compete at a higher level is abundantly clear. We’ve conceded 10 and scored 1 against opposition outside L2. A -9 GD is frightening considering the recruitment and wages. QOTS gaffer mentioned we’re paying more. We’re yet to see the return relative to the level of player recruited.
  2. Yeah ‘loyal’ is commonly used by the orange mob isn’t it 🤢 keep the faith
  3. Terrific 3 points to keep the QP loyal jolly over the Christmas period. Can enjoy watching the Spiders on BBC later this month too. Believe the hype as they say. One league game lost in 2020 is a truly spectacular return. Now that everyone has played each other and we can measure the stock, I have no doubt this group have the desire and quality to win the league. Well done Queen's. One loss in 2021 if you don't mind please, thanks x
  4. You fancy QP to pay her more than Hibs and Motherwell? Does Premiership Exec wages come from the Haughey fund or QP pot?
  5. Good to know. I’d never heard of her until the link with QP. I’ll do some more research to learn her story.
  6. Why do you assume it’s a man that drinks Tennent’s in a local and likes football. Could it not be the average Joanne? So not PC. For shame sir, for shame.
  7. Seriously???? I thought the joke and question made it light hearted and open to discussion. Chill oot! 🤣 It is an exciting job. I’ll challenge anyone who gets it over me. I’ve yet to hear from the Committee re my application.
  8. I’ve heard from my one Motherwell and one Hibs contact that both sets of fans hate Leeann Dempster. They agreed she ran Motherwell “terribly” and similarly at Hibs. It is worth noting my contacts have absolutely no pedigree in the Scottish game except strong opinions in the local assisted by Tennent’s lager. But, it is worth noting she’s not very well liked. Surely the question is why has her career went from premiership to League 2?
  9. The Gretna situation collapsed because the investor died suddenly and his kin weren’t prepared to continue spending. The same could happen to QP. The players budget is paid by Willie Haughey. If he loses interest, it may very well be a scary time. I’m not the guy to advise if he’s tied into a long term deal etc. The decision to go pro, for me anyway, was to move up the leagues rather than slip into lowland league. I don’t think any QP fans voted for glory. That’s not why you support a club like QP. I don’t think you’ll see us in any Scottish cup finals soon for example 😂 Our home attendance is only around 500. Hamilton, St Johnstone and Ross County for example all have low crowd numbers but compete at a higher level. Ticket sales isn’t the staple for how competitive you can be (although a big ticket gate does help). I voted for the change but I am cynical at times and wary. I don’t like to get carried away. I get concerned at what happens when the investment stops and we have high wages to pay. That said, we are in the central belt, we have a crackin history and about to enter our new ground. QP have a lot to offer and I believe we can establish ourselves as a championship/league1 outfit. I hope that helps
  10. Jealousy and poor Scottish fitbaw patter mate. Anyone with an investment gets the Gretna label. Our history and tradition is incomparable.
  11. I thought QP were excellent on Saturday. Loads of flare, pace and aggression to drive into the box. It's not easy to get it over the line when the box is packed. Quitongo the stand out MOTM for me. Carroll looks like good business too. McLean done ever so well when he came on to set McHugh up a few times. Delighted Bob is off the mark but he had so many opportunities on Saturday. I fancy Murray to come in and start scoring consistently. Not conceding a goal in 5 games is staggering. I'd like us to play that attacking outfit every game at Hampden, regardless of the opposition. We go again against Stenny!
  12. Surprised Gillespie has fell out the starting 11 of late. He was solid in all his games imo. Any news if he’s picked up a knock or anything? It’s a very attacking team today so that may be why. I don’t think Brechin will apply much pressure so the role sitting in front of the back 4 might not be required today.
  13. After having a peak at the fixture list for Saturday, I fancy a draw for Edi City at home to Stranraer. Perhaps a similar story for Stirling v Elgin too. We may start to stretch from the pack if we get results this month.
