The Queen of the South thread


Recommended Posts



Of course all Billy Hewitson needed to say was: 
“I am kicking myself very hard. Possibly even harder than my worst critic..”.
Something along the lines of that. A bit of bad press for a couple of days and we all move on. 


An apology would go a long way to helping that, yes. Humans make mistakes. To come out with that absolute nonsense in the face of it is just ridiculous and screams ignorance to the current pandemic/ restrictions in place though. It's your club that will be impacted here more than anything. It's a shame for the decent queen's fans this has happened.

To me, that statement looks borne of panic.

I'd imagine some insiders were shouting "Do something Mutley" at each other, resulting in a statement that makes things worse.

If the regulations permit the inviting of a guest in such a way, the statement should say so.

If they don't, the apology needs to be fulsome, sincere and humble.

 

 

Neither was offered.

The bizarre thing is that the statement is labelled as an apology. It’s not an apology. It states that they are sorry people are upset rather than apologising for what happened. It’s pathetic.

This all suits George Galloway perfectly, he's absolutely desperate for attention and relevance.

He'll find some way to turn this into something political. I'm sure his travel to and from the game was essential though.

Possibly trying to drum up public profile ahead of Holyrood next year for his latest authoritarian one man and his dog political outfit.

The carpetbagger’s carpetbagger. Today’s performance the latest narcissistic stunt.

He's fair put Queen of the South on the map tonight. No longer will they proclaim to be the only team in the bible as their claim to fame.

Galloway is trending on Twitter and this farce is being reported across mainstream media. So it is mission accomplished from his point of view.

Lord only knows what the club were looking to achieve from this absolute shambles.

They have very naively been played like fiddles by Galloway, and as is usually the case when a football club has a massive balls up it is the fans who suffer.

This is not going away and there are certain to be repercussions.

The first thing that needs to happen is the club have to take ownership of this mess and retract that ridiculous non-apology.

Beyond that I think a change of regime is now essential for the future of the club. But that won’t happen overnight, if at all. Who would want to take us on in our current plight?

It truly is bizzare. He should have just held his hands up and taken his medicine. Instead he's come out as an absolute bellend to the fans and country at large who are essentially in lockdown.

It's now on BBC Scotland's football page.

It quotes that club statement.  The bit I still don't fully get is this:  "He was socially distant within an area of the ground where he formed a bubble with his family. All Covid protocols were followed at all times."

Is the club therefore claiming that this was ok, but they get that the identity of the guest bothered some people, or are they simply avoiding the fact that rules were breached?

Either way, it's not good.  I'm just still not entirely clear, and the BBC report doesn't help, as to how definitely the rules (rather than just their spirit) were broken.

I'm not saying that SD or indeed anyone else associated with a football club should be making daft statements on here about their employer/client. But if you choose to duck out of commenting your own club's mess for that reason then you lose all credibility when commentimg on any other club's dealings.

I get that but I still think you're being a bit harsh here.

My understanding of the rules is that no fans are allowed, so if you are at the game, there must be a purpose to this which helps the game go ahead. Unless Galloway was a feckin ball boy, he shouldn't have been there - however it would not surprise me in the slightest if pals of directors up and down the country have been getting in.

If she done f**k all but the Celtic fans spitting the dummy oot she can hardly get waded into Queens. Unless you lot down there aren’t fully fledged members of her cult.

I’m pretty sure you’ll be correct that lots of folk will have been present who weren’t required for the game to go ahead. The key to not getting caught out is not to invite a self serving c**t who is only interested in self promotion.
