The Queen of the South Thread


Recommended Posts

What a cheeky young scamp. Believe me , you will find it fascinating discussing the merits of the central midfield of S*****s/ Mc*****n in twenty years time when you are our age.

Edited it for you Jr using that shocking language so soon.

Only butting in cause it's a a very boring subject, we could text about a lot of ex players that have featured on tv!

I would much rather text/ talk about our current set up at Palmerston.

Come on please tell me we are going to build a brand new main stand etc

I totall agree Supersouth. I am a distant supporter but have no interest in talking about players of the past and nor the quiz games they play on this column. It should be kept for updates on current affairs. If anyone wants to play games, then they should start a new thread. End of rant.

The beauty of the big Qos thread is that it encompasses everything from modern to retro and its about any Queens related theme you want . Nobody is stopping Supersouth bringing up the subject of the Arena or the team. Older contributors are more likely to want to iron out the finer points and reminisce about the past just as the younger ones will in time to come . There is room for all sorts of topics , discussions , interests and ages on here and thats why its so good . Remember there is a forthcoming match thread to visit that boring people don't talk about seventies players Edited by JRS LEFT PEG

Queens threads are getting a little weird.

Some people object to discussion of the hypothetical on the grounds that it didn't happen.

Others object to discussion of the retro on the grounds that it didn't happen within the last twenty minutes.

All a little limiting and strange.

A bit weird and a bit clique-ish IMO. At times it can feel like you have logged into a private chatroom instead of a public forum.

As for discussing hypothetical issues, fill your boots. If you are that interested in trying to establish a conclusion from a situation that can't be proved it is your time to waste as you wish. Of course the benefit from your point of view is that you can't be proved wrong. Hardly the basis for a meaningful discussion.

The "retro" quizzes are good because they bring back memories of games and players, good and not so good, that many have forgotten. I have followed Queens for more than 50 years although my recall of a lot of events is very poor and I take my hat off to those who can remember players and events in such detail.

So it's the ones who are happy for discussion to career around all over the place, covering all manner of topics and eras who are being clique-ish, while those desperate to narrow the conversation and shut off certain avenues of discussion, are the all embracing members of a congregation of a broad church?

Yeah, ok.

Not exactly, I know nobody outside of P&B personally (That I'm aware of at least) but I'm still capable to have a decent and engaging conversation on here. it really isn't hard to go along with the conversation until someone changes it.

SUPERSOUTH has got previous for trying to change the topic if he isn't able to say something that he wants to say, usually he gets ignored because he usually completely misses the point but he seems to have succeeded.

I'm not a fan of these giant threads as If you go away for a while you have to sift through a few pages of mundane stuff and are impenetrable to other clubs fans. But the QOS one at least has a bit of variation to it and is a lot better than other sites.

Gavin Reilly should be offered a new contract for next season.

We seem to have signed up our other young players why not him.

Michael Paton should be offered a new contract as well.

What makes you think he hasn't been offered a new contract ?

Of all the players that Havn't signed yet for next season Gavin Reilly & Michael Paton are the two we need signed.

Lots of talk today at the ground about the pitch getting lifted at the end of the season and relayed what's going on? Has the surface been layed wrong or what?

The pitch was supposed to be the most modern type of its kind.

Reilly has been with us a few years now, coming through the youth system and with him still only 20 we would be due a bit of money if he moved on. Based on his performances especially since the turn of the year you would expect the Management and board would have already made him an offer. Look at the amounts a couple of teams got when their young players moved on.

It's perfectly understandable why Reilly would want to assess all his options before signing anything. It's not too long ago he was unfairly dropped to allow McIntyre to justify signing McHugh.

McHugh is average at best . Reilly with Lyle/Paton/ Russell / is a better option than McHugh

Anyone know what part of the ground the racial/sectarian chanting that has been mentioned in yesterday's programme/today's press originates from?! Disappointing if true.

Me thinks the Chairman has been made a fool of be a couple of random visiting fans to Palmerston . I was at the game & heard nothing plus every single person I spoke to yesterday agreed that there's was nothing OTT sung at the Dumbarton game .

The only trouble makers are the random fans who emailed him in the first place
