    The big announcement

    Whatever happened to this concerning Palmerston plans for the future - was it not promised that there would be a press release at the end of May ?

    There was supposed to be an announcement with regards to the main stand being replaced with better amenities inside.

    It was discussed at the April Supporters Meeting. The minutes say that Mark Blount said it was still ongoing

    Mark Blount stated that the documentation has been done for the World of Sport and is ongoing and it will go to a meeting in London to hopefully enourage investors

    From the last SLO meeting

    A more direct and quicker link to the SLO meeting minutes would help. I also found it but it was quite a complex navigational process.

    surely that cant be there big announcement ,we already know from about a year ago about the stand ,the announcement im waiting for is when and dates of work starting ,we have been through this time and again relying on a meeting for investors ,all other times ends up with plans being binned ,so any announcement that aint concrete is a waste of time .

    You are of course correct mate and in the Queens book published in 2005 ex - chairman Davie Rae in the first page introduction talks about '' the launch of our plans to upgrade our stadium to a 6,000 all - seater '' That plan 12 years ago like others since never materialised so hopefully this latest one will reach fruition.

    Personally would be hoping for some terracing/safe standing.

    There's a good chance it'll be more than just a new mainstand

    Yes. Somewhere to stand on the wing. The stand enclosure is my preferred spot at Palmerston.

    Although finding the investment will not be easy, it would certainly help maintain full-time football and possible Premier League football. Has this moved forward though?

    lol truthhurts iv learned one thing from queens over the years dont listen to anything our directors say as to me thay only shout these kinda things out to regenerate some interest in the club which gets people talking and maybe the odd floating fan thinks queens are looking forwards then as per usual nout happens as its just a gimick to create fan interest nothing more ,id be happy for the club to prove me wrong tho and start building this ,actions speak louder than words for me .

    Exactly Francis, unfortunately itís our Directors that are punching above their weight, not our club.

    lol iv been saying this for a good while truthhurts ,queens are a club of large potential ,we have seen what it takes to get the dumfries public on board the ship 2008 ,i wouldnt go by the cup final crowd but the quarter final crowd and the semi final crowd is about our true potential tops ,the final was always going to attract people that will never ever attend another queens game ,but it shows you what kinda platform needs to be set up if queens want to see out there full potential ,we are a sleeping giant i see it .95% of the queens fans are stuck in a punching above our weight scenario ,thats queens biggest problem .

    I absolutely agree with you again Francis. This punching above our weight crap really puts you off anything Queens. Maybe that lot would be better following Annan, because they definitely arenít going to win anything anytime soon.
