The Queen of the South thread

Aye decent showing there from the side. Lots of positives. Pressed well, matched Raith throughout created chances and got a couple of goals. Never conceded from open play is a bonus as well.

As I said, I couldn't really see our setup but it was good to hear the commentators praise Quitongo. Marking Zanatta out the game doesn't happen too often so fair play to him and hopefully he builds on it. Didn't like how isolated Paton was tbh and I don't know if that was due to personnel or the way WG is planning to play. I'm not sure Paton can do that role week in week out though.

Good to see some youngsters getting game time as well as I don't think they'll be there just to make up the numbers this year. No idea who the trialists were and never got long enough to judge them IMO.

Sorry about the quality of the pic but this was the trialist centre forward

No idea who the central midfielder was (and didn't get a screenshot).

Was any of the trialists any good worth another look on Saturday 

The midfielder didn't look anything special and the guy in the above pic only got the last five minutes so difficult to say.

You would think trialists would play from the start to get a good look at them

Enjoyed that, no failures for us for me. Liked the shape, liked the way we approached bar a 15 minute spell but weathered it and I thought over the piece deserved the win. Shape really suited Todd who I thought had a very decent game. Even subs came on, we did fine. Criticism of Currie is a shambles, dealt with everything comfortably. Wee Gibson looks like he could be some player.

5 players still to come back into the fold so encouraged.

Fair chance that’s Afolabi I think. 

I don’t think it’s Afolabi, I didn’t recognise this guy at all and looked a bit like the boy pictured a couple of pages back. The trialist tonight was played upfront and not midfield though so maybe not the same guy. 
 

10 year deal for Lewis Gibson please 😍😍😍

It 100% isn’t him.

Lewis Gibson looks like he could be class. Very comfortable in possession, just looks like he belongs in there, thought Dom did well tonight when he came on too

At the foot of the announcement about digital tickets it says "All prices again for season 2022-23 will  be frozen. Renewals will be available later this week with general sale next week. With more details to follow.", so £285 and £18 per game full price.

From a selfish point of view that's great news as I'll finish at 3 some Saturdays so to be able to download a ticket to my phone is perfect. In the same breath, fair play to the club for keeping paper tickets as an option given we have a fair amount of older fans.

As friendlies go that was a very decent competitive match. Pleasantly surprised with our performance - Quitonga who was not rated by previous club’s supporters and I must admit that I feared the worst ………..was excellent. Mind you Ally Roy started great last season and quickly faded so will have to reserve judgement. Todd was outstanding and of the new signings - McKenna, McKay did well and the keeper was solid enough. 
 

Young Gibson looks an absolute natural and if he keeps playing like this he will be challenging for a starting berth right from the off. I still think Willie is our best player and I think he should be playing - far too good a player to be on the sidelines so I hope to see him when the real action starts.

Aye young Gibson will definitely be looking to feature regularly if he can reach the performances he is capable of consistently. Watched him a few times for the 18's and he's usually one of the top 2 performers. Has a goal in him as well and has scored some genuine screamers. If he can bring that to the first team we've got ourselves a player. He is so like his dad at that age it's scary. He loves to take a man on but sometimes does too much instead of passing. Hopefully being in the first team that gets knocked out of him and he is encouraged to find a pass when needed. But I hope he brings the fearlessness with him.

Really think WG has missed a trick not bringing Nathan Naylor along with him. He was another one who was really consistent and for his age holds the ball remarkably well. Loves to take folk on as well and has a goal in him too. I'd have taken Naylor over the other two young lads tbh. Hopefully the other two kick on along with Gibson though and we have some decent young players to call on.

Naylor maybe still involved with reserves?

Aye. Looking likely he'll be getting loaned out to a local amateur side as well as the reserve league, along with Andy Oram.
