The Queen of the South Thread

Isiah jones next please

This would be great, but I don't think it will happen, as Isaiah has been training and playing with the Middlesbrough first team on their pre-season tour the last couple weeks. He also played a full half in their latest friendly v York City which suggests he's in Warnock's plans for the season.

Edit: just found this from their local paper:

Quote

Jones catches the eye

The second half was low-key, the only real moment of note being Paddy McNair's missed penalty.

And wholesale changes didn't help matters, disrupting the flow as is often the case. But that's what friendlies are for, of course. Getting as many players as possible minutes under their belt is more important than the result.

It was a player introduced at the break who was the bright spark in the second half: Isaiah Jones. Fresh from an impressive loan spell at Queen of the South last term, Jones was fast and fearless at York, his direct approach troubling the hosts down their right side.

On several occasions he created openings thanks to his blistering speed. He doesn't complicate things. He plays to his strengths: his pace. He was positive. We might see quite a lot of him this coming season.

Another 2 year deal is incredible, what’s gan on?! Young player again as well. Supposedly once watched by Benfica and Braga and recently on trial with Newcastle and Coventry so he must have something about him. Really exciting times ahead just now at the club IMO.

I do like how we’ve tapped into the English market for players and it’s not the same typical championship Merry-go-round. I mean they might turn out to be shite, remember falkirk’s shambles, but is something quite exciting about signing some unknown, hopefully promising youngsters. 

I do think we are an appealing prospect for young players looking to go further in the game. There’s now numerous examples with Shields, Obileye, Dykes where they’ve played well with us and we’ve got players good moves. Same with the loans as well, we have a small squad so players will get a chance. I like the thought of the 2-4 Middlesbrough loans, hopefully something like that is still in the pipeline.

That's an intriguing one, he's been without a club for the last year, which makes the claims of all these big clubs being interested in him a bit hard to believe, tbh. Hopefully he lives up to that sort of hype, AJ has obviously seen enough in him that he was happy to give the 2 year deal.

Another signing and another 2 year deal. Maybe we’ve a bigger and better budget than the experts think 🧐

Dunno, but the budget was probably really screwed down tight last season due to all the Covid uncertainty. Maybe some easing of it this season. It's all guesswork though.
