    Champions

    How time flies as it is 15 years - 20th April 2002 since Queens were crowned Division Two champions after beating
    Forfar away 3 - 0. Over 800 Doonhamer fans made the trip up Station Park and two goals by Peter (Nellie) Weatherson and another by Sean (Sheepheid)) O'Connor saw many of them invade the park at the final whistle - one of the great days of following Queens.

    A win is very important for Queens this Saturday as the prize money is needed to maintain full-time football at the club. It is clearly evident that the number of fans attending home games cannot sustain a full time playing staff at Palmerston and praise for the board is due for achieving what we have with the limited resources available.

    The chairman has one more plan up his sleeve for the club to generate money away from football and I'm really interested to know what it is . I'm sure he's quoted as saying an announcement is due around May

    Am i correct in saying that Queens wore the navy blue / yellow stripe shirts in that great game 15 years ago today when we finally got out of the lower league after 13 seasons in it !

    What a fantastic day! I remember that morning the exhaust of my dads car fell off an hour or so before we were due to leave for the game. Luckily the local garage managed to fit a new exhaust and we arrived just in time for kick off. Action packed day!

    It was indeed.

    I wonder if the manager is still planning to play a few youngsters or will he play his strongest 11 to try and regain 5th place

    Will be a tough game and with Dunfermline playing Falkirk we should hopefully be back in 5th place tonight.
    I am hoping Lyle will be back today so him Dobbie up front with Dobbie scoring the goals to over take Cummings before Hibs play the next league game on Wed against Raith.

    Come on Queens!

    Well that was awful stuff. Thankfully the season is almost done.
    Only consolation is that with St Mirren losing we can`t go down.

    That was really the only consolation on the day with St Mirren losing 3-2 in injury time. Heard a rumour that there could well be 8 players coming in, so who are the players departing? I was surprised to see Tapping on the subs bench today.

    One of the many pathetic performances from Queens this season and just a pity that the directors were not in attendance to see this shambolic effort - surely a big clear - out is on the cards ?

    I wonder where they were? I noticed Ball and Rae were there.

    You know very well mate that big Bally and the Lockerbie farmer are only honorary directors and have Puff McCall to do with the everyday running of the club !

  18. #18
    What hope have you in getting more fans through the gate if the directors can't even be bothered

    The manager said as much after the game. He was really critical of the player, with only young Murray escaping due to his age and inexperience.

    Presumably no mention from the manager that he might have got some things wrong. I`ve yet to hear him acknowledge that he might make the odd mistake.
