Stephen Dobbie + WHO? Think its time the club started building squad for next season! Have any other players from last season even been spoken to yet? Don't think so!  Come on how do the club expect to sell season tickets when the only have ONE player signed....

You should give them a call and remind them. :rolleyes:

Given that the manager is only just in the door, it's understandable that things will take a little longer than usual.

Good to see the knicker-wetting starting early.

1) The majority of players will be on holiday now.

2) Johnston has already pointed out that players can hold off to see if they get better offers. I hate to say it, but Queens aren't exactly going to be the most lucrative choice for players.


If we have no other players signed by the middle of July I'll start to shit the bed. 5 days after our season finished, not so much.

I wondered how long it would be until the knicker-wetting about signing players would start!  It comes around quicker every year.

Kyle Jacobs signs for us, thoughts?


He’ll run, and run, and run for absolute days on end. His energy levels are second to none. He is a poor passer of the ball thoigh. If he’s next to someone that can find a pass and is good going forward you’re doing well

He's ok. Is always busy breaking up play, but his distribution is awful. Would have kept him as a squad player, but would hope we get better to start.

Seems the perfect mould for Tidser :wub:

That’s exactly what I thought to be honest. Splits opinions with Queens fans, but I’m gutted to lose him. 150 odd appearances over 4 seasons with us.

I think even most Queens fans would agree that Jacobs was their best player last season so I'm delighted with this signing.

He's been a good servant but I'm not overly disappointed to see him leave.  When he keeps it simple and sticks to his strengths he is a real asset.  As stated he will run all day, and is excellent at winning the ball back often when the odds are against him doing so.  He also wins a ridiculous amount of headers for someone his height.  I can't think of many players with as good a leap in my time watching Queens.

Latterly though he has frustrated the life out of me.  It is rather self-defeating having a player who is good at winning the ball but also losing it in equal measure.  His passing and overall awareness of his teammates is shocking and he is forever getting caught in possession, often in dangerous areas, as he dilly dallies trying to work out what his next move is going to be.

He will be a solid enough signing for Morton and I wish him well as he seems like a good honest pro, blah blah.

Indeed but it’s not stopped Morton signing Kyle Jacobs. They’ve moved  fast

palmy_cammy has pretty much covered it. He's been a good servant and I wish him well. He will break up play and won't back out of any challenge but his distribution is utterly woeful. I'm not surprised to see him go (or disappointed tbh) as he clearly wasn't going to fit AJ's style. Even in the few games he's played under AJ he managed to slow down our attack any time he got the ball. I'm not suggesting we'll be playing silky football next season, but someone who takes as long as him on the ball (before then struggling to find a team-mate!) isn't what we need.

We're going to be gegenpressing the shit out of this division next season so that won't really be a problem.

To be fair to him, that's exactly what he'll do. It would be better if he could just pass the ball to a team-mate but even when he did lose it he wouldn't just 'throw his hands in the air' and expect to be bailed out.

It’s probably a case of us just being absolutely done with this squad so his departure isn’t seen currently huge travesty. He suffered being played in a midfield 2 as usually we’d have a fairly passive player in alongside him as well so very little came from the middle of the park. The list of midfield partners since he’s joined would be very grim reading.

But yeah does the things fans like, runs around a lot and gets stuck in, though now he’s playing against Morton he’ll need to find a new team to only score against . In the right circumstances he could be a key player at the same time he could just be yet another limited lower mid tier championship centre mid.

I’m fine with him going as we have had a good run with him but i have seen enough of him attempting to pass 5 yards for one lifetime. Though compared to the various sand dancers, I’d take limited but hard working over the various overweight messes coasting off reputation.
