The Queen of the South thread


Recommended Posts

To be honest I did not think 4-1 was a fair result. I don't understand the changes. Why does he play McKenna when D McKay comes off a good performance last week. McKenna is really poor positionally and he has no heart or bravery in the tackle. I thought first half we were excellent Todd McGrory Wilson dictating the game. Second half we fell into Morton trap and we stopped playing our game. If we play like that next week we will give Dunfermline a game.

You didn't fall into any trap, we just moved Gillespie back to cover the space in front of the defence that you kept exploiting in the first half to pretty good effect. We don't normally have that gap: it was sloppy from us to create it today.  Once that hole was plugged, the innate superiority of our players and system won out. 

A commendable effort at the toughest away game in Scottish football right now though.

I'd probably walk if Currie was being picked ahead of me tbh.

What's Sam Henderson like as a GK?

Been around a few clubs since leaving Queens like Gretna, Petershill etc...

Disappointing if expected  result in the Cup .

Morton have shown get the right manager anything is possible.

They will work with a similar budget to us but all to do with how you use it. 

 

How the f**k do you know what budget Morton work with. Give it a rest or come up with some figures.

A example is Wilson and Reilly both offered deals at Morton but sign for us.

We offered more money  that is the only reason why they signed for us.

I think you'll struggle to find anyone who knows.  He doesn't seem to have played more than five games at any of the clubs he's been with (and there have been at least 12 of them - that must be a record for a 23 year old!) with the possible exceptions of East Kilbride and Carlisle City.  

Even at Petershill he only made 2 starts before being released.  I'm amazed that he got a contract with Queens until June to be honest given that he struggled to get games at both Dalbeattie and Mid Annandale in the past couple of seasons.

We're fairly rattling through the goalkeepers this season... Currie, Pietsch, Cowie, Ritchie, Fox and now Henderson all on the teamsheet at some stage I think.  Pietsch may have been at the tail end of last season, I can't remember offhand and can't be arsed checking.

Unless we sign another keeper in January all of this would suggest that Currie is now unchallenged as first pick no matter how pish he is. Frankly that's a scary thought. We'll be safe this season given there are teams more pish than we are but the decline continues.

Just because two players chose us over Morton doesn't mean we have a bigger budget, others in our squad may be on much smaller wages to compensate, or the players took other things into consideration when deciding on a move. I still say you have absolutely no idea of what each clubs budget is.

We had budget problems in the Summer and rumour was we offered players less than last season so wouldn't be surprised if Queens offered both better deals.

Our budget improved towards the end of the window once we secured a 6 figure partnership deal which allowed us to sign Robbie Crawford, Grimshaw and Ambrose.

I was gutted to miss out on both as they did well for us last season and thought they were cracking signings for league 1 but Dougie has done very well to replace them.
