i think we all know where the money has gone .

Player and staff wages, training facilities, match day costs, and general upkeep of the ground?

Why did you announce there was to be a 3rd strip this season if you’re not going to sell them ?
I thought the club would want to make as much money as possible this Centenary season.

 

I was looking forward to buying the light blue shirt so was disappointed that it's not being sold as one.  I would buy the thing without sponsorship, but none of the warm up tops appear on the shop page of the website.

I bought the light blue one yesterday after the reserves match. Only £20. I asked the girl if it was the 3rd strip and she said yes. When I enquired why there was no sponsor on it she said it also doubles as a training top, hence the lower price. Pretty nice top.

My first games were all cup ties -  a sunday match against East Fife which we won 1nil with a pen; against Hearts in another cup tie think we lost 2nil and the one that got me started for real on my own was against Motherwell 1980? which we won 2-0

Feb 15th 1977

I've broken my rules by checking and according to that '75 Years' book, it was more likely to have been 20th November 1976.  It says we won 2-0 at Dens on the date above.

I think that East Fife match was the first Sunday match I went to at Palmerston,  maybe the 1st one ever to be played there on a Sunday.  If it's the same one I'm thinking about,  I recall there was a bit of hassle between the Fife fans and Queens fans.  There was no segregation as such in the covered terracing  and stones were being thrown from one end to the other.  

I can't say I can recall what my first actual game was at Palmerston but George Farm was player/manager.  Being a country boy and not living too close to Dumfries,  my early visits relied on my dad's weekend off,  and suitable  buses,   coinciding with a home game,  which was maybe about 3 or  4 times a season.  On moving closer to civilisation in the late -sixties I was able to start attending regularly and have done ever since.  The lean times,  of which I have endured plenty of along with others,  certainly make you appreciate the "highs"  even more.

Why does SHE still sit in the directors box during home games ?

 

 

I’d imagine it was for a number of reason. She’s friends with the chairman. It’s good eye candy in the boardroom. And also for her own safety, as I’d imagine she would get dogs abuse in amongst Joe public.

Who cares.  As long as "SHE'S" not sitting in your seat it shouldn't be a problem.

She also dragged the good name of Queen of the South F.C. through the gutter with her embarrassing social media rants among several other things :(

The girl was sticking up for herself, the same as JT stuck up for himself.

When backed into a corner, I’d come out fighting too. I’m sure everyone has skeletons in their closet.  It’s just you never hear them because we don’t work for a football club and nobody would be interested.

An old buddy was telling me when I was down on Saturday that the ‘sum’ was significant !! Allegedly !!

 

It's all heresay - and probably no-one will ever divulge the absolute truth - but I believe the total amount of compo handed out in relation to this sorry affair equates to a seasons' wages for around 2/4 first-team players at this level.

That might partially explain why the squad is thinner than a thin thing at the mo.

If true, does the budget constraints only last this season?

No idea!

I'd imagine compo would be a lump sum??  If so, then it might be a 12-month thing.  But that's pure speculation.
