The Queen of the South Thread

All the best to the guy. Hopefully it works out for him. I'd have been happy if he had stayed but similarly I'm not gutted he's going.

Hopefully he comes in and does well, I imagine he's our successor for Bartley and a fill in at CB. Bartley will need rest games this season so he'll get time to shine. We're also missing big physical crunching tackle type players this season so hopefully he can come fill that role

Can't say I recall Obileye doing many crunching,  ball winning tackles,  I think he tries to read the game and intercept passes before it gets to the crunching tackle stage,  either that or opponents shit it when they see him coming,  he's a big unit,  not as mobile as Bartley I think.

Obileye similar, but different, to Bartley. Less aggressive at winning the ball back, but more effective at this level. Goal threat presumably from set plays? Livi probably need set play threats?

Season ended and still a championship team more than we could and probably hoped for at season start .
Quite a lot of fans on various sites thro out season were wanting Callum Semple back I have looked at a few sites and I can’t find that he was playing anywhere since he left queens ( maybe wrong ) I wonder if there is more than a football reason we never signed him.
Ps I would take the Callum Semple we had first time he was here not the second time

Yeah seems to fit well. We need someone alongside Guthrie for set pieces and Fitzwater is mince defensively. Looking forward to seeing him as I feel he could fit in pretty well. Fits the mantra of excelling at the level below in terms of signings

I'm not convinced that he excelled here.

Mind you, neither did Dykes.

dykes was a very good player for us, surely anyone who watched half time dobbie goals on Friday night would have seen how much of a impact Dykes was in the majority of the goals.

A player who fans didnt really take too because off field matters

This dimension gets wildly overstated in my view.

I think Breen would be a decent signing for us if he’s available. I think Mark Durnan has come to the end of his Falkirk contract, so might be a decent central defensive partner for Breen.

Good God, if you know enough that Durnan is out of contract at Falkirk, then you should have seen his display versus Partick. It just summed up two seasons at Falkirk, a don’t give a shite attitude and an unwillingness to exert himself. When he was willing to put forth effort, he was an “acceptable” CB for a weak League One team...good luck.

See Nicky Low has signed a 2 year deal with Arbroath. Some gamble with his injury track record. 

Interesting signing for them. Actually forgot about him being at Queens...

I have often thought the same although Dobbie only scored 43 goals that season with Dykes donkey work.

RUSTY1111 the troll is well and truly back.
I never thought it was Rusty as he doesn't come across as such an angry individual. But his inability to multi-quote is a red flag

Seems to have managed to stay relatively injury free since he went part time upon leaving us. Glad to see him back at this level, as his talent deserves to be at least in the Championship. Hopefully he can avoid any further injuries.

Thanks for the advice. He had 3 very good seasons with us, so quite happy to take another punt on him.

I would be less than convinced at us taking that punt. Yes, he did have 3 good years with us, but it has been pretty much 6 years of constant pish since. We know he is capable, but it has been a long time since he has shown it with any consistency.
