The Queen of the South Thread

Recommended Posts

Stick to budgets will be the only way to get out of the mess you are in. We have a very strict budget, which has been adhered to for last two seasons, and things are looking ok now. I wish you well in your struggle for survival, but don't throw money at the same folk that got you in the mire in the first place.

According to BBC Scotland radio, Brannigan was informed of his position by letter. I wasn't too keen on him after his comment s re DFC when we were sniffing around Bob Harris....but he wasn't wrong...this is not the way to treat someone who is obviously capable for the job. A very sad sign of the times ,I hope he gets fixed up with a club that appreciates his capabilities.

A very unprofessional way to deal with anybody .

Kenny was never going to be kept on after his honest rants about the board but they should of had the balls to tell him to his face .

Rumour has it that a few players have also been informed by letter

Come on Mr Rae , you're better than this :huh:

The BoD have not covered themselves in glory here. It smacks of cowardice.

Very disappointing, especially the manner in which it was done. The board are not covering themselves in glory if true. :(

How in the name of hell did you even get into this position, that's what I don't understand. I don't recall any money splashing sujourns into challenging for the league, so what happened?

Financial difficulty? And you waste money on stamps? Call the adminisrators.

The bad weather last season had a massive impact on the financial income. The fact that by the time the weather settled there was pretty much no chance of catching the teams above us, considering we had no resources to increase the squad size meant that crowd sizes dwindled. Wasting presumably big wages on the likes of Holmer, Knight, Andrews, Kean and McKenzie will also have impacted badly. Still though considering our income from the Scottish cup run and the games in Europe and against Rangers I would have been expecting ourselves to be in a better financial position

That's exactly what we did do.

Paying too much money to players and Chis + an unrealistic expectation of home league crowds + two bad winters on the trot + the manager and chairman not talking to each other = a disaster.

We got into this position the same way every other football team with money problems does. Financial mismanagement by an inept Board.

That being the case, he'll be joining the midden. FWIW, he's a good player. Not sure if he's SPL quality, but worth a shout I think.
