Another decent signing for Queens in Ciaran McKenna. Thought he was decent with us apart from that farce with Edge against Morton. 

He started off well when we played a back 3 and he had Dixon next to him but then faded badly.

He’s probably slightly better than Brad McKay but still garbage.

I turn 59 in a couple of weeks and am slightly better than Brad McKay.

What a depressing update, 3 out of the 6 new signings out injured for tonight as well as Aidan Nesbitt. 1 or 2 more signings left in the budget and then bolstered through loans later on in the window. Also sounds as if they are struggling to find a striker to sign which isn't really a surprise but it is extremely worrying.

Ironic that we switched to training on grass, partly, to avoid injuries and we've ended up losing a whack of the team in the 1st week 😬

That’s Mcglynn’s interview style. Watched a ton of his interviews when raith were down here with us and almost every pre matcher was depressing as f**k.

Seems like most of the injuries are at worst back after Stranraer. No panic necessary

I really like his interview style, I know he's quite dour but there's no flannel and plenty of honesty. Pity about the injury situation but got the vibes none were concerning long term.

Looking a bit grim squadwise for tonight but suppose nothing else too surprising. I think we're in for a season rebuilding rather than dominating, another couple in permanently and then the rest on loan late in the window.

I agree with your thoughts here & not dissimilar to Jim Jeffries our best manager in past 30 years

Looks like we will be relying on Mcglynn improving what we already have, let’s just hope an actual manager can get more from the group 

Was always going to be the case that's why the fans have to give the contracted players a chance to prove themselves under the new management.

How many people have worked for poor management and are de motivated over a working career? near everybody.

If people get on their backs whether that's on forums or running onto the pitch before a ball is kicked is counterproductive.

Suspect a few might just surprise a few folk

Can Sean Mackie play centre half? It's either that or somebody from the under 18s! Unless we finally discover Jaime Wilson's best position?

Edited to say that I've just Googled Mackie and he's smaller than me and I used to spy on snow white in the shower!! Under 18 it is then.

Not sure what to make from the interview. He’s obviously (like all fans) disappointed to loose so many so early in pre-season. However It was the way in which he explained potential future transfers/loans that’s slightly concerning. Is he just pissed off that about the injuries or he’s been told there’s no further stretch of funding as he quoted a couple/striker. Maybe I’m looking into nothing.
