Remember us being 5-0 up at HT in a 7-0 win against Forfar at Palmerston in the 70s. 

Indeed. I think we won 5-0 away to St Mirren at Love Street the week before. Ian Reid and Jocky Dempster scoring most of the goals in both matches.

Edit to add these games were indeed in successive weeks in 1974. Reid got 7 of the goals and Dempster 4. George "Chopper" Dickson got the other one.

5-1 down at HT sounds right in the defeat.

I don't think we've ever beaten Airdrie 7-1

I was only a wee boy then,I think it might have been a 7-1 defeat come to think of it :(

Does anyone have any info when Queens beat Airdrie 7-1 at Palmerston and what was the halftime score?


Are you possibly getting Airdie mixed up with Clyde? Did we not beat them 7-1 10 or so years ago?

Dobbie scored 4 and Kean, Tosh and Harris scored the other goals.

I'm still convinced had the heavens not opened that day we'd have reached double figures.

Come to think of it we were 5-0 up a HT when we won the old Division 2 title in 2012-2013 away to Brechin at Station Park were we not

I didn’t expect such a drastic drop in level for Low.  Such a waste due to injuries :thumbsdown

I may well be the only person on this forum who was present when Queens lost 2-10 to Dundee at Dens in 1962. Gilzean scored 7, George Farm was carried off after 10 minutes - and no subs in those days !

How has Nicky Low ended up at the Shire?

His groin is made of doritos.

It’s a real shame for him as when fit he was tremendous. Although sadly we didn’t see it often enough.

I also can’t help but feel we contributed to his problems by playing him when we clearly shouldn’t have.

Hope he gets over his injuries and back to a decent level, or at least gets playing regularly even if it is at Lowland League level.

It is a shame for him because without injury, he wouldn't have dropped to our level, never mind his latest one.

Given the tightness of our squad though, it does make our signing of him in January bloody stupid.  It doesn't require hindsight to say that getting lots of games out of him was unlikely.

@Skyline Drifter have you posted an updated All Time Greatest Scorers chart recently? Apologies if you have and I missed it. Is Ser Dobbie on a million goals yet?
