    Looking forward to this, feel like Queens lurching from scoring and conceding loads should mean quite an open game rather than the opposition coming to sit in. Obviously I'm sure Queens fans would rather be compact but it does make for a better games if the teams can get the ball down and attack each other.

    Queens have never been compact since Day 1 that is the problem .

    We concede far too many goals have not got one  decent goalkeeper or  defender.

    Easy Dunfermline win  just about how many untill we sort our keeper and defence we will struggle.

    And yet Darragh O'Connor went the other way. 🙄

    Was surprised we never got O,Connor he is exactly the type of defender we need.

    This has been our problem all season we don't have a aggressive centre back.

    Not 1st choice at Morton hopefully he might be available in January.

    Morton are one the smallest sides in the Championship and the Queen of the South XI yesterday was considerably taller than ours. No one in our starting midfield yesterday is taller than Calvin McGrory, never mind Iain Wilson.

    We'll put long balls down the line to be chased but our physicality comes in the form of energetic pressing to badger defences, not dominating head tennis with our team of 5'9 midfielders, wingers and full backs. Quitongo's strength can make things uncomfortable for defenders on the rare occasion referees allow an even contest, but he's not going to dominate any defence in the air.

    There'll be a debate about who drops out for Gillespie to come back in here. I'd go for Kabia with McGrattan going back out wide but could see it being McGrattan with Kabia keeping his place after the goal.

    Every time the ball goes out your long throw will come into the box then you win 1st or 2nd balls it is not really all  about size it is the aggression you have to win the ball  

    It will be a battle something that you are really good at we just don't have the players who enjoy a 50-50 challege think some will disappear as the tackles fly in

    Pretty incredible interview from WG bemoaning the lack of noise from the support yesterday. Given there was just over 900 QoS fans there (less if you believe there were 45 Montrose fans) I think he should be grateful there are fans still bloody turning up; maybe not wise to have a dig at those who are.

    And Sandra's "Looking at the bigger picture, it's not that bad?". Holy f**k.

    After last week Wullie really should be saying thanks to the fans for the support .

    The noise and numbers  of the fans will increase if we keep playing like yesterday surprised Sandra said things are not that bad. We are now at a crossroads in our season can we push for the playoffs for me our defence still has a soft centre hopefully we can sort that in the New Year .

    Is Rico suspended for the  Morton game Hendrie back for that .




  5. Very difficult tie Morton in great form  will be favourites we just don't have the physical players needed to beat them.

    The ball will be in the air a lot we just don't have enough height and strength  to deal with it.

  6. Night and day from last week .

    We still look dodgy at the back but every time we went forward we looked like we would score.

    All played well but 

    Special mention to young Gibson his crossing was first class 

    Good team performance think we would have scored more but the sending off changed the game .

    Stupid from Rico to react when on a booking but he was hit on the face before it.

    Done now but Wullie should really have taken him off when on a booking.

    Montrose really lost it very lucky to finish with 11 players just glad we did not end up with any injuries.

    I wouldn't even say "second half performance' per se, more a period of about 5 minutes during which time we chucked the entire game in the bin.

    We started like a train. Paton should have scored even before Reilly did. For me Lewis Gibson is fouled in the box similarly to last week just after the goal too. We could have been 3 up inside the first 10 minutes. I've no idea how Paton and Reilly between them didn't even get a shot in from their 2 v 1 situation running clear into the Alloa half either! Cochrane was running things in midfield and Wilson mopping up anything we lost. For 40 minutes Alloa barely got a kick in our half. Then we lose a cheap goal at a corner again when Hendrie completely loses McIver and go in 1-1.

    I thought we started the 2nd half the better side again too without much threatening, though Dave McKay should have done better from about penalty spot when the ball fell to him at a corner. Then on the hour we lose another at a corner we had about 3 chances to clear and didn't. Not clear if Church's strike took a deflection or just went through a lot of bodies from my angle? Then the heads went like my 12 year old's youth team when they lose a goal. The 3rd and 4th goals are horrible. Straightforward lumps into the box we just didn't deal with. Stanger gets away from Hendrie again to nod his in, then Hendrie heads a big lump forward from the keeper direct to Offord who runs off Wilson far too easily. All within about 3 minutes of actual play!

    Game's then over obviously. The 5th's goal's a good goal. Decent cross, Hendrie misses a diving header but he's probably only heading it into his own net if he makes contact and King's back post run gets him a goal. Nothing remotely controversial in it and I've no idea what Hendrie then felt the need to say out of turn to Greg Aitken to get red carded.

    Alloa thoroughly deserved their win obviously. Rice has them well drilled and organised and they keep themselves in games until they get a chance of their own. Defensively they are everything we're not. We play a lot of nice football but we're not clinical enough when we are on top and, as others have said, when a team comes at us physically we just don't cope. We were missing McKenna and East yesterday, two of the regular back line, but it's happened when they've played too.

    Everything in this post is 100 % correct only massive problem is how do we sort it when teams come at us physically we just don't have the type of player who loves a challenge to win the ball .

    How many times have this board recruited poorly though? It is then compounded  by them not realising their appointment isn’t working and leaving it too late to get shot of the manager.

    In any other business the board would have come under scrutiny for not performing.

    Yes, the buck does stop with the manager, but there comes a time when the board’s performance should be be analysed too. 

    I don’t think it is unreasonable to say their performance in the role hasn’t met requirements either. 

    The old argument about there being nobody else wanting to do it doesn’t add up either. Lets test the water by the board  saying they will step down at the end of the season and see who is interested. 

    For those old enough to remember, this is becoming a lot like the Harkness years.

    Nothing like the Harkness years the board have given Wullie a decent  full time  budget.

    The problem is Wullie has signed no leaders all nice players but not one would win a 50 -50 ball.

    We don't have a good  goalkeeper or any defenders that are even half decent

    You could tell from our first game against Annan when they bullied us that it was going to be a long season .

    We have a soft centre all this is Wullie fault nobody elses he signed the wrong type of  player .

    We will always lose games everyone does but it was the manner of the defeat at Alloa it was a new low point .

    Doesn't look like there will be any full time gigs in the Championship opening soon where he'd be in the running. The Falkirk and Dunfermline jobs isn't available, so one can hope. But I do agree, with our board doubt the job is attractive for any manager.

    *Forgot about Hamilton but that doesn't seem to be an attractive job either

    Brian Rice for me has the experience we need is doing a great job at Alloa.

    Only problem is the cost of getting rid of Wullie and getting Rice in I can't see the board doing that we will no doubt just stick with Wullie that is the easy cheap  option

    He absolutely does not have the best interests of the club at heart. And for the Dykes deal, sure it ended up as a club record sale, unsure on the final fee though as there was clauses depending on Scotland caps etc

    As I said our Chairmen is not perfect but he will have to do as I don't see a queue of folk wanting to join the board .

    The Dykes deal if Q.P.R ever make the Premiership or he gets sold for big money  then we will get another huge pay day .

    Away from that wish we could play Edinburgh every week. 

    Early days but have we another star in the making in Lewis Gibson .

    One of my pet hates in football is a player missing a penalty; they're set up now to give the attacker all the advantage. But what really really boils my piss more than a missed penalty is not even hitting the bloody target with one.

    No excuse not hitting the target from a pen. I thought he had a corner he preferred.

    If going for power how hard is it to keep it on target really sums up our season so far .

    I'm just making a point the issues run a lot deeper than at management level. 

    Okay the board are not perfect but remember they are in affect volunteers as well.

    They are fans like us just trying to run the the club the best way they can .

    I don't see a queue of people wanting to join the board most folk will not give up their free time to run a football club .

    The Lydon Dykes deal for example  the board deserve great credit on adding a sell on clause that will  hopefully still keep bringing more money in .

    Any blame on our poor performances are 100 % our managers fault he was given a decent budget to sign a full time squad good enough to at least make the playoffs. They look  miles  away just now.

    He still thinks he has enough  quality in the squad time will tell if he is right .

    Where do you start?

    I was interested to see Bange starting, fans have been shouting for that for weeks, but the optimism lasted 5 minutes. The ball was played to him in a good position, he dithered about until all the Queens players were out of position but then passed straight to a Falkirk player. Clinical finish after that but terrible pass.

    That gave Falkirk a bit of confidence and the rest of the half was just awful. That’s the worst game I’ve seen Gibson have for us (ever?), and it his error led to the second ( thought our keeper could have come out for it?). Though Currie made a few decent saves.

    I thought Cochrane was our best midfielder (it was a low bar), and Paton made a difference. Connor Murray looked lively, and took his goal well.

    Can’t bear to watch the highlights, watching once was enough.


    Have watched the highlights it was worse than I thought .

    The 1st goal what is Bange thinking about with that pass it is nowhere near a Queens player but after that we are so slow to react easy. 

    2nd goal what the hell was McKay and East doing standing watching as he had a simple header in .

    Currie as expected did nothing he has to come and claim that the ball was in the air a long time .

    3rd goal think I could beat McKenna far to easy to side step easy again .

    The overall performance was easily the worse so far this season need a massive improvement to get anything from any game this season

    The mass booing at half time was a bit over the top was it not? 

    Ok it wasn't a pleasure going in half time two goals down but it wasn't like we were utter turd and the goals conceded were self inflicted punished on the break. 

    We were playing one of the best teams in the division with half the midfield out ffs. 





    This is the point we should be up challenging with the likes of Falkirk not getting outclassed .

    If no vast improvement in the next month  is it time for a change in saying that if the rumours are true about a non football problem Wullie might be away sooner than we think.

    Aye, away to a Championship side would have been well down the list of preferred ties. Could be worse. I'd rather play Morton than Dundee or Inverness or Partick Thistle, etc and it's not the other end of the country, but it's still uninspiring and disappointing.

    Would have been nice to get a Drumchapel, or Auchinleck or Stirling Uni or even Darvel type draw.

    EDIT - Still, last time we played Morton away in the Scottish Cup we reached the final!

    What happens if we had got a  Auchinleck type draw and  lost would put a hell of pressure on WG.

    Morton is a free hit if we lose we move on to the more important thing of the League.

    I'm sorry I thought WG was just really hoping for the best with his changes today. There was a sense of desperation from it all. There was a lot of unrest round me a lot of unrest  if we had not got the result I feel the tide would have turned against WG. Again just my opinion I was extremely positive going into this weekend. 

    Bottom line is we won I don't care how we played.

    We played very well against Alloa only got a point .

    The subs changed the game was Wullie not right to try anything to win the game okay he used 5 subs but it worked we won the game nothing else matters .

    I thought Peterhead were a lot better than in the first game to be fair. Until Cochrane's late clearance off the line they still didnt look like scoring right enough but they were much better. The boy Prince in midfield was good without really knowing what to do with it in the final third. We could have won by about 6 or 7 up at Peterhead, two was about right yesterday, though until the subs we were a bit lacking invention in the final third ourselves.

    We werent great at Kelty but made more opportunities than we did yesterday. We scored freely at Airdrie but couldnt defend. We were outstanding against Alloa but couldnt finish. We need to find some consistency. We have the ability.

    Our best system with the player we have  seems to be 3-5 -2  why do we change it every week .

    It looked like a 4-1-3-2  we had no width we ended up over passing it in the midfield .

    Wilson is far better further forward breaking up play not sitting in front of the back 4 .

    Any  manager interview this week ?
