Possibly confusing Hamilton with Brownlie for the assist to Dobbie for the first goal. They look similar from a distance. 

Yes, I'd actually thought it was Hamilton's header across goal, before I got home to learn it was Brownlie.

Said it before, and have done for weeks. In his whole career Dobbie has been at his best when played off a battering ram of a striker to bully centre halves and clear space. First O'Connor, then Dykes, now Hamilton. Young Jack is nowhere near the level of Sean and Lyndon yet but he puts in a hell of a shift and competes for everything.
When Dobbie plays with clever technical players as a partner like Lyle, El Bakhtaoui or Oliver it sometimes comes off and looks great (Dobbie and Lyle destroying St Mirren away stands out) but generally he does better playing off a big man. The formation we have now is working at the moment  with Fais playing as a winger (lets see how long it takes clubs to work out how to deal with it).

 


This.

I recently watched the YouTube video of his early goals and you can see he thrived on the chaos O’Connor created, his anticipation, calmness and ability to just delay a fraction of a second longer than you thought possible make him particularly effective when the defence has been bashed out of position.

I actually think him and Dykes had a really good understanding and some great interplay but undoubtedly he played the battering ram role as well.

Great result but my MOTM would be the manager. How he has got the team playing is astonishing  Playing McMullan out of the game was a big reason for the result. Just wish AJ would organise Scotrail and TP Exp as well  Cant wait for next weeks game and we will not underestimate a fine part time team. 2-0 would be a good result.  As an aside Dobbie's second goal was from a man back to form

Hamilton put himself about really well yesterday and hopefully him and Dobbie can build a good partnership. I'd like to see him winning more headers but I can't fault his effort.

This. His effort is quality but he jumps as if he's expecting to whack his head of something above him.

Have I missed the official announcement of Wullie Gibson taking over from Eddie Warwick at Palmerston? Heard he was in charge of reserves today v Kilmarnock....

Nope, there has been no official announcement. He is working on an interim basis while we await formal approval for his appointment.

Would be good to see Gibson get it. A role model for younger players, and someone who used to coach younger QoS teams. Has given plenty back to the Dumfries community

Funny how his first game in charge we draw with an spl side unlike ew could manage

I doubt it's unconnected to the fact Lyon, Semple, Osman, McCarthy, Murray & Oliver all played. It's a much more experienced squad than the typically teenage line up we usually put out at Reserve level. Although Dom Thomas, Iain Wilson and Simeon Jackson all played for Killie, we actually had the more experienced line up by the looks of it. It's ultimately up to the 1st team manager how many experienced fringe first teamers he's prepared to release for Reserve games.

I think Wullie Gibson will do an excellent job when and if he is eventually confirmed in the role but I don't think getting a draw at Kilmarnock yesterday proves anything at all.

Of course it’s connected to the first team players Queens had out. 
 

Worth seriously looking at the Kilmarnock team. Far more experienced than our side. Jackson alone has nearly 500 appearances. 
 

Semple, Murray and McCarthy are certainly not what I would call experienced.

It really wasn't.

Simeon Jackson has going on for 500 appearances, yes but other than him only Iain Wilson and Dom Thomas have double figures of 1st team appearances at League level. In fact outside those three, I think only Connor Johnson with a handful of appearances for Walsall has even played a senior League game. Semple, Murray and McCarthy all have more first team appearances on their own than the rest of the Kilmarnock team added together. Connor Murray has played over 60 games for us (albeit a lot were sub appearances). Abdul Osman has over 300 1st team appearances himself too. Darren Lyon has more than 50 Premiership appearances for Hamilton. Gary Oliver has over 150 1st team appearances in his career.

You can debate the level, particularly of the younger players, but there's no doubt we had a more experienced side than Kilmarnock in terms of senior competitive appearances. And that's unusual for us in the Reserves. There aren't usually more than 2 or 3 1st team experienced players playing.

"We are respected wherever may go"

Wore the special edition Anniversary top on Sunday to the Sydney v Wellington Phoenix game. Partly because the sky blue is Sydney's shirt colour, mainly because it's a smart shirt.

Before the match a guy comes up to me and says "I never thought I'd ever see a Queen of the South shirt at a Sydney game". Turns out he collects football shirts and recognised the badge but was intrigued by the colour and lack of sponsor.

John at the Club Shop might have another international order now!

Has anyone that ordered the special edition centenary top boxed with the print got there's yet or know when they will be ready?

Nobody has. The club are still waiting for the boxes to be delivered.

I have no idea, I am not involved. I just know because I too am waiting for one and asked last week where we were at with them.
