The Queen of the South Thread

Recommended Posts

We already give bundles of tickets to schools every week during term time with exactly that offer. We've been doing it for years. Take of them is very low with something like 20 odd at best attending from every couple of hundred given out.
 

But one of them is still coming after 40 years - and it was the the only game my Dad ever went to

These sort of things are unavoidabull. I've seen this sort of injury cowntless of times.
I over-herd that he's wanting a mooove away because of all the Bull-ies at the club.
If he does stay I sincerely hope it doesn't affect his Cowordinates and cause him to fumbull the ball all the time.
Hoofeels that these puns have ram their course now?

What a load o Bullshit.

Have to say that an incredibly high proportion of the goalkeepers signed  permanently has to have some sort of misfortune.

Colin Scott - Made of paper maché gets displaced by Andy Goram in the only cup final he ever played in, retires early.

Andy Goram - Swoops in, wins trophy, drinks the town dry. 

David Hutton - Career defined by a massive mistake 10 minutes into a cup final.

Ludovic Roy - Gets seriously injured after looking good 

Roddy McKenzie - Gets a stroke of luck by getting offered an extra year by accident, tears his ACL in a testimonial, retires after coming back and playing like someones dad at fives because you were short.

Bryn Halliwell - 'shrugs shoulders.'

Scott Fox - had to play as an amateur, for some reason we preferred David Hutton.

Lee Robinson - Comes in and fails to displace David Hutton and leaves mid season, comes back and stars despite the team getting relegated. Next season he becomes a cup winning cult hero, leaves to go to the arctic circle. Comes back and undoes all his previous good graces by conceding corners, daisy cutters, 40 yard headers. Falls out with Naysmith and leaves whilst being white knighted by his mate on P&B. It doesn't get worse than that really

Jim Atkinson - Doesn't get a break whilst he's here, as soon as he goes a mass injury crisis happens.

Callum Antell - Is so bad that he is now the byword for crap goalkeeping.

Alan Martin - Gets injured, then portly, then has to resemble a marshmallow in a not very flattering pink kit, then forgets how to do the whole goalkeeping thing, gets injured again.

Sam Henderson - Finally gets to go on the bench but is ruled out  the following week through a bovine related mishap.

 

If anyone has to fill in with some more examples (positive or negative) that would be great but my main take away is that we should only ever sign goalkeepers on loan.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned

John Burridge who signed fairly late in his career for Queens and swings on the crossbar and plays a handful of games...

Jim Butter Fingers......

Willie Cunninghame who lost 6 goals to Killie with Watters scoring 5 of them...

I see in today's papers that ex Queens striker Derek Holmes has taken over as Manager of Junior outfit Wishaw.  The highlight of Homers time at Queens was  probably scoring the "perfect"  hat-trick against Terry Butcher's Inverness Cale Thistle side on their own ground.  ICT had been struggling a bit that season but IIRC went on an unbeaten run after that defeat and got promoted as Champions.

Queens have only won 6 home games this season, no wonder home gates are down.


That it is unquestionably not helping to generate local interest.

And so another season peters out in mid table mediocrity. A must win game, we play with one up front, Dobbie on his own supplied by high futile punts up the park. I'm going off Naysmith I'm afraid, his football "coaching" is killing any entertainment. We're not even trying to win now, just avoid defeat. The tanking we're about to get on Tuesday night (I hope the game's off) should be the final nail for the season.

I very much doubt that were "not even trying to win."

Have not got a hope of hell of making the top 4 this season is just going to fall away just like it did last season .Have one of the best players in the league but the rest of the team is again not good enough.

Apart from Dobbie we have no goals anywhere in the team .

Crowds are very poor going to be hard to try and get more fans in .

Naysmith will always play not to lose which always makes for a poor game which  does nothing to help to get more fans in

We actually have quite a few good players.

We had 4 attacking players starting today. Plus we have full backs who like to go forward. Couldn't make the game today so can't comment if it looks like they were told to sit back but Dobbie, Murray, Dykes and Thomson are all attacking players. Would you rather we had started with more attacking players and been left short when defending? Might have been a crap performance but part of me expected us to get beat today so I'll take the point.

We need to get rid of Murray, and also Dykes, he can't score, he is tall and continues to be beat in the air, with defenders that are are smaller.

And Naysmith needs to make changes  more quickly,he has tried  playing Dobbie up front and it does not work, he needs a forward playing along side him, has to be the worst game at Palmerston all season
