Yes...

Indeed the Alloa goal is a thing of oddness (as well, of course, of beauty).

We came back from 3 goals down to earn a draw in the first game V Alloa at Palmerston with a DOBBIE hat-trick and should have won that game in the end , according to the Alloa Manager then also. The only game we deservedly lost was our previous visit to The Recs when we went down by 2-0.  

I don't think that's the case, I recall Goodwin saying he felt we could have won that game even after it went to 3-3 with Flannigan hitting the post and also a penalty claim. Think we'd all feel that was very much 2 points that got away. Would agree that 10 points from QoS flatters us though, although at the same time we haven't taken the amount of points our play probably merited against some other teams.

Just watched the goal again, six times, and  I still can’t fathom out what the three defenders on or around the line were doing. It’s like someone had nailed their feet to the grass.

I thought at the time Jack was culpable but I’m less sure now.  The ball just seemed to swirl about, apparently hypnotising the 11 Queens players who were all in the penalty area at the time.

From behind the goals it looked like the ball was hanging in the air then very suddenly blew down towards the goal when the wind caught it. Tricky to defend. That said, hard to have much sympathy for the QoS defence when they had struggled so badly even with simple balls into the box previously. Every corner, free kick and long throw seemed to cause panic.

This.

We had 3 centre halfs playing and the team doesn't lack height with the likes of Wilson and Dykes to add to that. 

We look frail every time a high ball comes into the box especially from set pieces but also from open play.

I remain convinced that our goalkeeping woes are a big factor in this but the outfield players carry some responsibility too.

Agree not having a dominant goalkeeper that is willing to come out and gather the ball or take a forward out is a Big problem...

On the subject of goalkeepers I note Alan Martin is starting for the reserves at Falkirk this afternoon.

Having seen the goal, my view is that Brownlie should never play for us again. Before I saw the goal, my view was that Brownlie should never play for us again.

At least it shows the benefit of having everybody back at corners. I mean, if you leave somebody up the pitch you leave yourself wide open.

Pretty sure you have just made a solid argument for leaving Brownlie up the park for corners, or possibly out the park.

He'd give away a pointless free kick up the park

The big man upstairs is Obviously an Alloa Fan, 

John 3:8, "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." This verse brings out that man has no power over the wind. He cannot command the wind when, where, or how hard to blow; man has no control over it. But God does, and He uses it as it pleases Him.

I almost agree but I go on again about it , the number of bodies in the 6 yard box is unreal and Alloa players are there to block the keeper from getting near the ball. There was a very similar corner just before the goal when keeper was blocked. Compare that with when we get a corner one or two players in 6 yard box with rest on edge of box. This allow space for keeper to come and claim the cross

Alloa had a very narrow width to the pitch, we all knew about it before hand but couldn't Queens have made better use of dykes long throw in from attacking point of view. He would have got ball into 6 yard box easily and with Wilson, McQuire, Brownie, and to a lesser extent Todd a chance to win a header

He should never wear the Queens shirt again. In fact, we should never have signed him after being part of the Cowdenbeath side that shipped 100 goals or so in a season!!

Probably from an Alloa fan behind the goals. Even if Brownlie does get a shout from the keeper or another defender he should take responsibility,  deal with it and then argue about it later.  We lack players with the confidence to make decisions to deal with things.

No competent footballer would ever leave the ball in those circumstances
