I did actually, but I pretended on here that I thought we were doomed.

Another brilliant win to get 7 points out of 9 from Hearts Inverness and Dundee  with key players missing all 3 games is great stuff.

Never thought I would say this I had him sacked a while back but now time to offer AJ a new contract then if he hopefully signs  try and get some of this squad signed for next season don't start from almost nothing again it will be very difficult as most players will hold off to see if they can get a better deal elsewhere .

Just before Christmas, I’d have bet heavy money on Queens finishing 10th and thought your only chance was bagging your manager.

Two months on, you’re sitting in the promotion play-offs.

Don’t know if any Queens fans seriously saw that coming, but I certainly didn’t.

Fair fucks.

If we had replicated our first round of results, we would currently be on 8 points, 10 behind Arbroath in 8th (Ayr would have an additional 3 points). Realistically our only hope would have been finishing 9th as Alloa would have been 1 point above us on 9 (they would be 3 points down) having played a game less.
Of course, we are still far from safe. But without the transformation, we would be more or less down already.
Edited to correct the fact that Arbroath would have been below Ayr. Inverness and Morton would also have 3 points more each, so Arbroath would have been 8th.

Absolutely.

There has to be a middle ground between wanting him sacked immediately and wanting him to be here for life.

This is much better, but let's just see how things develop.

He is a player that we desperately want to keep for next season.
Hopefully there are plans for Jones to come back for a season. He won't be getting much first team action at Boro next season so hopefully we have first refusal for a loan next year.

Agreed that would be great.

We need to talk about Obileye. A real fans favourite now.

His penalties give me the absolute fear but his record speaks for itself. He said in his interview at Caley that he waits for the GK to move. He must have cracking reactions as I've not noticed the delay between the GK moving and him striking.

He really is cool as hell though.

Hamilton was pretty much lying on the floor before he hit the one today! He sold himself early. To be fair Craig Gordon really waited the week before. He still eventually showed his hand before Ayo hit it though.

What's been the cause for Queens recent excellenct form? 

I way he'd the hearts game and the speed, power, directness and work rate of mbude and nortei really stood out. The big fella obileye was solid too.

There’s been more structure to us since the Raith game, where we our defence stood tall to protect young Charlie Cowie. The penny seemed to drop for a lot of our players that night. We were in decent form till Alloa game, Shields going off seemed to knock us off our stride that day. Then losing more players to injury/isolating seemed to work in our favour again. We’ve found another great option in midfield with Nortey and Ayo protecting back 4 is working a treat for now. I think it helps having 3 big presences on the pitch as we were conceding from a lot of crosses earlier in season. We also have an abundance of pace and lots of legs in midfield which really helps countering. And we’ve got willie Gibson

Really good interview with AJ after the Dundee game .

Great news that Sheilds is either back this week or next McKee and Leighfield . close to a return as well.

He says how difficult it is to sign players and more important keep our good players we just don't pay as much as other full time teams .

Not a surprise but we simply can't do a rebuild job every season. We will hopefully survive another season in the Championship with the team we've got at present but unless we can find the resources to keep some of our better players then eventually we'll get caught out. When this team gets it together they are pretty good and what a difference from earlier in the season.

They should try using the Tanner Fund money on offer. That might just persuade one or two players to stick around for another season. Thought that was the whole idea of it..?

Tanner Fund update on 01/02/21 said that they had discussions with the board about using the fund for funds or wages and the board have asked them to hold on to it until they rebuild for next season. 
 

You’d think that suggests using some of it to keep hold of some of the players we have for next season.

We brought in Breen on loan at centre back and put him into the back line.  That allowed Obileye to move into midfield and Nortey (back from injury) has joined him in the midfield with McKee and McCabe dropping out injured.  So we now have a midfield that is now protecting the back line as well as carrying some forward threat and Breen seems to be working well with the oft criticised (on P&B) Buchannan in the back line.  Up front we have young players with oodles of pace, where bringing in Jones on loan from Middlesbrough was a nice piece of business.  Mebude seemed to be potentially a great part of that plan - but there's a good chance we won't see him again this season due to his daftness.  The cream on top has been Willie Gibson's form at right back though where he's been a revelation, showing loads of experience and adding no little guile in his forays forward where you can tell he was a winger in his younger days.  Once Connor Shields returns from injury I think Queens fans might well enjoy watching the team for a change - sure as hell been a tough watch for a couple of seasons.
