The Queen of the South thread

On the subject of ticket prices, I wondered whether making the terracing cheaper than the stands might work? I don’t think it technically breaks any SPFL rules if the terracing is only available for home fans most of the time. However, maybe all it would do is reduce the income you’d get from home fans anyway, rather than encourage more walk ups. And you’d have to stop fans moving from the terracing to the stand which might not be popular.
Hopefully, it wouldn’t reduce income but, if it did, it wouldn’t be by as much as lowering prices across the board.

Josh has moved to Airdrie to be closer to a family member who is really not well. A tough decision but one he had to make this year.

We train in Hamilton so that doesn’t make sense.

What might have happened here is that he had agreed to join Carlisle United (as was rumoured), but the unfortunate development within his family then meant that he couldn't really take the Carlisle offer due to the travel involved.  By the time that became apparent Queens had filled his "vacant" position with Max Currie and so returning to Queens was no longer an option - hence the Airdrie move.  Could be wrong though, just speculating ...

Appears odd the delay with season tickets, if it is a delay. Can’t recall when they are usually out.

I was going to say about cash flow and season tickets usually being important in that respect with no games. It doesn’t sound like Qu££ns are short of cash though.

Having just checked, I bought mine on 4 July last year. Which was quite soon after they went on sale. Mind you, there would have been an announcement ahead of then via club website I suppose.

Seems like Fitzpatrick will only be signing with Thistle if you lot waive your right to compensation. The player says he had an agreement with AJ that he’d come back for last year so long as the club didn’t stand in his way if a bigger club came in for him.

The announcement on the OS was on 23 June last year.

I wouldn't want the club to stand in the way of a player moving on: they've stepped aside mid-season in the past to allow it. But if we're due compensation for Fitzpatrick then I hope the club stand their ground and wait for it. If Thistle are that desperate for him they can pay what's due. I doubt it's that much.

Totally agree. We cannot be talking a high figure here as he was only permanently with us for one season. What are we talking 5k maximum. Would take Cammy Smith from them in exchange. Think that boy is a good player.

Did we get compo .for Rae from Airdrie .

We are due compo from Thistle if they want Fizpatrick pay it or do a deal we get a free loan Thistle pay the players wages ..

What are we talking here around £10,000 surely a so called  big club like Thistle can pay that.

All about opinions that's why we are on here.

Would take smith but probably similar to a few we have already. Regardless how much compo we are due club need stick to there guns it’s better in our pocket than theirs

Always feel season ticket should be on sale a lot early. Every fans situation is different as to when they want to commit to the following season. With the manager bounce in May, some may have committed and also with each new signing. Look at when Gavin Reilly returned and the enthusiasm and optimism may have encouraged some to buy.

This year April/May was earlier in the cost of living crysis when fuel/food price increases hadn't really struck. Some may have brought then who maybe now don't feel they have the money. Also by not having them on sale yet how many more pay days are there before the opening match. For some people there may be none as it will be too near next pay day to be able to order/post out etc. Others may now be looking at summer holidays  to use money that may have been available in April/,May/June pay packets.

Have we to guess? Any chance of a clue?

Don't worry, I don't think you'll have to wait much longer to find out

I really appreciate the fact that they're streaming the game, but £10 for a friendly?

Hopefully it means they’ve got a figure on what it will take to catapult Goodwillie all the way to hell…and they’re trying to get it together. Will Big Dave be starting for you lot?

Hard to say, we have that many defenders. I’d imagine he will as Paul McKay is returning from a long term injury but would like to think he will get minutes tomorrow too, could easily get 45 though
