The Queen of the South Thread

Couldn’t believe George Galloway goes to the game and knowingly breaks tier 4 lock down along with QOTS by permitting spectators in the ground, Secondly he couldn’t help himself but to inform everyone via Twitter he was there, This is a complete disaster for queens in an already poor season now but it’s ok he’s bought 5 season tickets and going to sponsor the club I can just see it on the new shirts I love Alluah

Would you care to expand on the meaning of your last sentence there as I'm a little confused ?

The rules aren't as black and white as that though. There are a handful of groups of people who are permitted to attend games, and it is possible that Queens could argue that Galloway fell into one of these categories.

There is no way you can argue 5 members of the same family, I assume some of which are children, are carrying out official duties at the club that cannot be done from home.

What do you base this confident assertion on?
I'm not saying you're wrong, but I've not seen any evidence on the issue either way.
 
Please show your working (without citing this episode as the self evident proof that it isn't).


I was born and brought up in Dumfries.

My parents still live there.

I know who the board members are...staunch.

Someone has to photoshop a photo of Galloway sitting at the head of the table!

A face swap with Gary Oldman, from the end of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, would be magnificent.

I feel sorry for all the QoS fans that have been wronged by your own club. It always sucks when the people that run your club do the wrong thing, and all you can do is sit back and take the slings and arrows. Trust me I'm a Dee and I know what it's like to feel like you've been just been kneed in the plums by your own club. 

I don't know what you guys can do about this besides voicing your displeasure and/or withdrawing your monetary support, but under the current circumstances despite the gov't grant could that push your club into disaster?

On a related note I've been doing some research on this George Galloway fella and I'm beginning to think that he just might possibly be an odious f*cking rat, and a walloper, a scrote, and a first class weapon...

just kidding I'm from Dundee and we've always known that and he isn't welcome back, eff him.

I tick all three boxes too, but I'm not sure it's granted me insight into the views of three individuals regarding the Scottish Independence question.

Probably the nicest things anyone’s ever said about Galloway

Colour me shocked.

Is there any club in Scotland that just screams 'unionist' more than 'Queen of the South'?

This for me is the crux of it.

I'll admit to struggling to find how Galloway, not to mention other family members, can be deemed able to attend.

Similarly though, if it's really as blatant and unequivocal a breach as Trogdor and others are saying, I'm really struggling to understand the level of stupidity required to show Galloway in.  I've disagreed with much that the board has done, but I certainly wouldn't consider them to be stupid people.  This just looks like such lunacy that I'm inclined to think there must somewhere be a little more nuance, or at least room to claim some.

Oh come on.

Galloway has been using the #resignsturgeon hashtag all week.

He had regularly boasted he was breaking rules coming back to D&G and what would Sturgeon and the “Seperatists” do about it.

He then tweets he was there.

Are you honestly saying this wasn’t an orchestrated plan to cry hypocrisy at the First Minister ?

This is George Galloway and the Blount’s we are talking about....

Stolen from Twitter but...

We've released more statements regarding George Galloway than we've won league games in 2020. 

Unbelievable.

I think you've answered your own question with the part in bold.  We may just have managed to crawl out of this one by making up some story about him being there in a professional capacity had he been there on his own.  I don't think that argument holds any water now it has been found to have been a family day out.  Even if we somehow get away with it by claiming he was there due to his sponsorship it sends completely the wrong message to the, already alienated, fans that the club will bend over backwards for you if you have money or a bit of clout.

I think the board have been extremely stupid and completely played by a known shyster.  They probably expected it to all go under the radar and have gone into full panic mode since the self-publicist took to Twitter with his antics.

I have no doubts Galloway did this for his own ends. I have serious doubts that the club were complicit in it though, which is what you were claiming earlier

Those on the board are business owners.

Dumfries went from Tier 1 to Tier 4.

Are we honestly meant to believe they were confused by the rules ?

I still have a lot of time for Queens and go to Palmerston whenever I am down but knowing the Blount’s and Hewitson - naive is not a word Id associate with them.

George started life as a Dee. He merely wanted to see oor Charlie strutting his stuff on the plastic pitch, you can hardly blame him. 
 

George has been a Dee, a dab, a Celtic fan and now a Queens fan in his lifetime. Welcome to the club. 
 

Thank you x

I’ve known him since he was 12 and I don’t remember him ever being a Dee. He was a United fan at the start of secondary school.

I honestly believe in Galloway's warped mind he believes that QoS will get 'unfairly' hammered by this and the fans will be disgusted with Nicola Sturgeon for this and for her refusal to allow football fans back. Thus giving him a cause and having the full support of the 1-2000 QoS fans and helping give him his ticket into the Scottish Parliament.

He thrives on controversy and tries to play people. And he's so out of touch these days he might actually believe that.

As expected, Galloway is using this as a reason to bash the SNP for changing Dumfries and Galloway from Tier 1 to Tier 4 'with a click of their fingers' and that fans should have been allowed back by now.

Jim Murphy-esque. 

But so, so naive by QoS.
