    The only way Queens will make the top flight is if we have a one hit wonder of a season like Livi last season.

    We have to rebuild each year due to one year contracts and loan signings so it makes consistency impossible. When ever we do get a good team other clubs come in and cherry pick them.

    Targeting top 4 is a realistic target and who knows from there.

    Fan base is rubbish even when the times are good. Look at the Johnson promotion season when we could beat just about any team that was Infront of us. 1600 home fans tops.

    Like it or not, we are at our level , the level our support and revenue give us.

    Good realistic post - sad but true

    then you can look at when we were under davie rae ,averaging just around the 3000 plus mark ,when we were churning out the wages and signing top players ,didnt quite work out tho as no other of the directors at the time would match davies commitment to plough the cash in to get us up and it nearly went tits up ,if daavie had been doing that now with the extra cash coming in from the infrastructure ,areana and things that 3000 plus crowds would have been enough .right commitment at the wrong time .

    albeit since then prices have took some fans away ,that rangers fiasco ,voting in there favour a good few said thay would never come back among possibly other reasons the crowds are lower these days ,but i think davie had the right idea ,its the level thats needed to get the fans coming back ,just need the cash to fund it .

    Very true Deek as it all appears to be about financial might these days so that when we do uncover talent it is quickly snapped up from under our noses. We could however squander money on average players, bring the club to its knees only to be just bailed out by the supporters and our current BoD. It is a no win scenario unfortunately for the smaller teams unless the powers that be are prepared to increase the size of the SPL but I doubt that the owners of the bigger clubs will ever agree to this as it would dilute the TV revenue so we are back to financial clout yet again. We can always pray for a wealthy oligarch or sheik however I don't think that Queens are attractive enough for these types of dubious investors. And as for a Brookes Mileson no thank you as what he did at Gretna was clearly unsustainable from the start to even to daftest pundit and whilst it may have been a fun few years look at the ultimate consequences for them. Wake up and smell the coffee we are what we are and that is together in this for the long run.

    If the rumours are true about the Queens Chairman selling off land again at Palmerston then we are well and truly knackered as a club. Believe it or not, East Fife were a club of equal standing and similar to us in size until they sold Bayview Park and built there new one stand stadium a decade or so back. I don't want to see us perpetually bobbing between divisions like they do nowadays. Hewitson needs to get off his high horse self ego trip and stop sucking the club dry of it's resources.

    Rumours coming from where?

    I think if we are ever going to get into the top division it will always be the long game unless we happen across some financial investors. Geographically I am not sure how attractive we would be as club with perhaps postal or haulage companies being our best bet for investment.

    We were for a period punching well above our weight when we were part time and we may just take a bit longer for us to get into the scottish premier league.

    Sorry to disappoint you but these ‘rumours’ aren’t true. More complete and utter lies

    There’s no land to sell. Yet another story that’s been made up by someone who’s got it in for the Chairman.
