Think the last time we played Inverness we traveled up on the Saturday surely the local players the likes of Dykes will be staying in Glasgow on Friday night .

It would be best if we traveled in the Friday but that can cause problems as well think Inverness had something like a 12 hour journey down to us the last time they played did not arrive here till the early hours of Saturday morning .

Do Queens pay for players accomodation Semple has said that he shares a flat with another Queens player in Hamilton .

We are traveling up on the Friday for the Inverness game do we really need to do that surely we could leave early on Saturday and still arrive at Inverness at lunch time plenty of time to prepare for the game ..

So, last season it was better to travel on the Friday when we went on the Saturday. And this year, when we plan to travel on the Friday, Saturday is better.

Took in the reserve game the other day as usual. No first team players this time, and most of the better youths missing.

Iain Wilson could walk backwards into the Queens midfield this season, but instead he's back at Palmerston breezing past a bunch of teenagers. Dom Thomas was also dominant. Surely it'd be better for Wilson and Thomas to come back for some first team games, but of course easier said than done.

Benji Luissint looked ok, hit the post on a 1 on 1 breakaway that he earned himself. Jack Leighfield had a few good saves but looked short on confidence with kicking and crosses. 3-0 down at half time but much more organised in the 2nd half, finished 4-0, could've been worse. 

It's a right mismatch that reserve league. Our boys will be learning how to be defensively disciplined against superior opposition, and the game time obviously helped David Norman and Connor Murray last season, but I often wonder how beneficial it is to be getting regularly pumped by future/current Premier League players. Not sure why Queens and Morton are in this league whilst Ayr and Livi are a level below.

Dom Thomas just signed a contract extension at Killie so must be part of the Manager's plans.  That doesn't mean of course that he couldn't be put out on loan,  but he's not a relative  youngster any more and there must come a time when Kilmarnock decide he's either a genuine first team contender or on his way out.

Does anyone have an update on the player who was supposed to be signing?

I see Morton got Billy King got a short term deal at Morton. 

What’s happening with the highlights from the Morton game? I know the guy does it in his own time but we’re nearly a week down the line.

If he had to watch it again to edit it, there's a good chance he's died of boredom.

We need at least two but if only one then that will have to do 

We were outclassed at Inverness against the better teams in this league we are mlies off it .

Inverness will easily make the top 4 we will struggle to stay in this league unless to somehow add to the squad right now we have to many average players

Too many average players? That may be the most positive thing you've ever said.

Just checked. I think we are on 19 points for the whole of 2019, celebrating 1919 in style. All we need is Paul Hardcastle....

A decent chunk of them must have come in the first month of it.
