Yes, Cochrane might just shine at a level down. Trouble is I fear he could be made of glass and spend half the season injured.

Surely we've seen enough of Cameron now, has to be better options out there.

No doubt at all that Cameron works really hard but a central striker, (very often a lone striker in the modern game), who essentially has next to no finishing instinct has got a limited future. I can’t see Championship clubs queuing up to take him and it’s not certain that he would fare any better in League 1. I have seldom seen a big bustling striker who takes up such poor positions when “Hollywood” crosses come in to the danger area. His shooting technique is dreadful - doesn’t seem to have mastered shooting with his instep and getting his laces through the shot. It is hardly a difficult skill to master.

In all my years of watching Queens I have never seen a group of players consistently find so many ways of losing matches that we either should have won or drawn at worst. Pundits on BBC saying that there has been a big improvement in recent weeks BUT WE HAVE JUST LOST 6 ON THE BOUNCE!!!

Sounds very brave of your chairman. Most would go nowhere near a Q&A at a time when their team is bottom.

 

We've all been brainwashed into thinking this is as good as it could ever be so he's pretty safe from any criticism.

Remember at the start of the season when we tried to warn you that Ally Roy was a diddy and worse than a man down at times? Then he had his one storming league cup game per season (against us ironically) and the Queen's fans were all "haha GIRFUY Airdrie fans", "Ally's the boy" etc etc. Well...
Karma for you in particular [mention=37959]ALOREBURNE[/mention]

And yet you seem far more upset than any QoS poster.

I'm glad I wont have to watch Cameron again. I'm surprised he scored goals with Alloa and that some posters seemed to rate him. The guy runs like he has one leg shorter than the other.

Actually think we should try keep some of this squad together for next year - Todd, Paton, MacKay, East, McKennie, Fitzpatrick, Gibson, Cochrane, McGrory. Out of all the loan players I’d only be happy to keep O’Connor, but he’s out of contract and will surely get better offers from elsewhere.

Think it’s inevitable that Rae and Connelly will get offers from Championship clubs as well.

Sounds stupid to say but don’t think we are actually that far away. We obviously need to improve in both boxes, an experienced centre half to play beside East and a proven goal scorer and we wouldn’t be far away away.

Who knows if this is being overly optimistic. With Gibson in charge, hopefully enough of the players are happy to play under him again next year.

Upset is quite the stretch. Amused by inevitability is more accurate 

Wouldn’t be mocking others, your lot are rank rotten. You have no chance in the play offs, see you next year!

Unbeaten in the league since last year sweetheart 😘

Turns out this picture that was trotted out in July isn't the cowardly lion celebrating his hat trick, he was merely foreshadowing which tier both he and yourself would be plying your trade in next season 😂

Again, you’re gloating for f**k all, as we will be in the same league as you next year. And dunno why you keep bringing up Ally Roy, I’m hardly going to argue with you, he’s absolutely shite.

Can’t wait to see your far right thug supporting fan base back at Palmerston next year!

Explanation on the first post re Ally, try to keep up rather than raging away.

No, actually. I think you've imagined that. 

Roy has always been average at best, I don't think many Queens fans would claim otherwise.

I think you're reading far too much into fans winding up the opposition fans after a win. Nobody thought Roy was anything special.

He appears more concerned about Roy than any QoS fans, that's for sure.

I think that we were in need of a reset anyway, having flirted with the drop for 3 or 4 years now. So a season or two outside the Championship is probably not a bad thing right now, chance to take stock and regroup etc. Just hope it's not more than a couple of seasons though. 🤞

Airdrie - Christ, I’d completely forgotten about them.

I kind of agree.

I'm not entirely sure what we mean by reset though.  It does feel like this fate is overdue.  What we've had for years now has been incredibly unappealing, as reflected in gates.

Does a reset just mean a spell of winning more frequently than has been our habit, or does it mean more fundamental change?

East a good sub to have but not as a regular for me .

At fault in the Cup Final and the Partick goal he must go to the danger not do nothing .

McKay and a experienced centre back something we have needed all season .

We  must try the  mix of full and part time try and get the best part time players we just can't compete with other  full time clubs when is comes to wages probable the reason we have such a young  full time squad this season. 

The manager do we still have to take Wullie even if it ends up we lose our last 10 games for me we need a experienced manager who can build a squad but if it must be Wullie  as most fans want then it has to be a 1 year contract Wullie has never even signed a player never mind a squad at our level

A rarely uttered phrase about us pantomime villains and especially funny coming from a fan of a pH 0, paint colour: magnolia fitba club 😂
