What's the Motherwell "young team" like btw? I know Hamilton have a group of fuckwits, is it similar for Motherwell?

Nah. Hamilton's lot think they're casuals. The young laddies that follow Motherwell are more 'Ultra' and have always been up for a laugh and a carry on. Usually find it's boys in their 40's/50's that follow Motherwell that have never grown up and still want a tear up.

Since taking over the running of the match day advertising sign at the start of last season we(SLO COMMITTEE) have had zero issues.Unfortunately due to staffing issues and annual leave the sign was updated slightly later than planned for the forthcoming Motherwell and Annan bet fred cup matches.However we will be back on track for the remainder of the season hopefully you will also have noticed that several volunteers cut back the branches which were causing an obstruction and cleaned and painted the sign. We also secured sponsorship of the sign and match day posters from the Queens trust which is a great help financially.   

Well done all concerned.

I noticed that at the same time the sign got a tidy, that big Coffee Shop sign got dragged to a new resting place.  Are there plans for its removal, do you know?

We have been asking this for several weeks as well I think once the renovations are finished at that side of the arena it will then be moved and hopefully replaced.

So at present going into the 1st cup game our squad is pretty threadbare. The team picks itself almost with a lack of depth. For me ATM our team would be GK Mccrorie RB Kilday LB Holt CB Brownlie CB Semple RM Mercer LM Murray CM Kidd CM Pybus ST Dobbie ST Oliver.   Subs Leighfield, Hamilton, Irving, Irving, Gourlay.

Wonder if Paton will sign today hmmn. As meh as he is looking at that bench he'd be really useful.  I'm not sure if Semple is 100 percent fit yet so it's a straight choice between him and Hamilton for me. Thankfully players like Kidd, Mercer and Kilday are versatile so can shift around if required. You can only imagine unless the youths have improved dramatically after a wretched campaign that they are just squad fillers. I saw Peter Murphy at Annan bigging up one of our lads who was with us last season, but we'd rather of had noone on the bench than him so he can't be that good.

Callum Semple has broken ribs. No chance of playing tomorrow.

 

Oh dear! Literally stretched to the limit in that case. The team literally picks itself

Bit of a disaster, that.

How long is he likely to be out for?

Hopefully there might be a last minute signing today. Fingers crossed

Looks like it will be loan deals down the line. A case of seeing who’s available when clubs get a proper look at their squads after pre-season etc.

Is Paton not signing? I know many are not keen but assumed it was going to happen.

There's a guy on our supporters Facebook group thingy claiming Joe McKee is Queens bound after spending most of the summer on trial with us.

There may be something in it but I would take it with a pinch of salt, hardly the most reliable (or sane) bunch folk on there.

The fact he hasn’t signed yet after playing a few games tells me that we may be looking elsewhere.

Any pubs near the ground you guys would recommend? Away fan friendly.

Dumfries is a fantastic town, big fan. 

When I go I usually fire to the Cavern Arms, get some reasonably priced and decent scran, fire across the bridge for 1-2 hours before kick off and there's a few pubs close by each other where you'd see football fans, Globe/Spread Eagle Inn, good bunch in there everytime I've been in. 

 

Also a bar at the ground which is good, opposite side to the away end though.

Surely if Paton was signing then he would have by now. He's been training for a couple of weeks and featured in all of our pre-season matches. Can't see him holding off for a better gig elsrwhere as he probably won't get that. 

If he doesn't sign today then i don't think he'll be signing at all.

Market Square is a 5 minute walk from the away end, and has 4 decent pubs pretty much next door to one another.
