    I was speaking to Dobbie just after the game and he told me that he should be fine for next weekend.

    Could it be a nostalgia trip back to October 2002 when Queens won the Challenge Cup at Broadwood vs. Brechin City and will Lyle score again?

    My prediction 3-1 to the South....
    Even better.....4-1

    All round good performance today with no failures and a high level of energy as well as commitment on show throughout. It has to be tempered by the apparent quality of the opposition but encouraging to say the least especially with Dobbie missing. Special mention to the defence which generally looked solid all game and to Rankin who was all over the pitch leading by example for the 90 minutes. Next Saturday will be tougher examination of the new defensive line up after which we will have a better idea of this Queens side.

    Lyndon Dykes gets a fair amount of criticism so let's give credit where credit is due. This season , already, I have seen him twice chase down seemingly lost cause balls and force mistakes of opposing goalkeepers and defenders. Today and at the Hamilton away game. Well done Lyndon and hope that goal today gives you a bit more confidence.

    It is hoped to have two new outfield additions to the side within the next week.

    Things are looking up.

    Great to win the first game to get of to a positive start with all the negative feelings before the match and a nice bonus to be top aswell even if it is just for one week and hopefully Dykes after his goal today can kick on to the form he was playing at the start of last season.

    Also great to see Lyle starting the season with 2 goals in his quest to move up the all time Queens goalscorers list.

    1. Jim Patterson - 251
    2. Bobby Black - 120
    3. Andy Thomson - 114
    4. Derek Lyle - 111

    Lyle to get a hat-trick to equal Thomson's tally would be good.

    Much as I loved Andy Thomson I'll take great pleasure in seeing Del overtake him in the goals tally. Hope I'm there to see it. Can surely only be a matter of time now. Hopefully he can get by Bobby Black too. Maybe another pointless post but always worth reminding ourselves of what a great servant Lyle has been to the club. Total legend.

    The countdown is most certainly now on!

    What is it with Del ? Every time I think he is finished he produces the goods again. Hope he passes AT's record but I still think he can't start most games and be effective.

    age is just a number jrs if you keep yourself fit enough ,for me del lyle looked the fittest man on the park against brechin ,that guy could go on for a few years yet likes .

    A much better all round performance from Queens and credit where credit is due is well deserved by Naysmith and all the players.

    I also heard from a very trustworthy source that Ross Fergusson has been injured of late, - which explains why he has not featured in the early season games.

    That is understandable, - but what is surprising is that there hadn't been anything on the official site to let fans know. As I've said many times, telepathy is not something that most human beings are very good at!

    We are not getting enough feedback from the club at present for various reasons but most managers keep their hand close to their chests as regards the injury situation so as not to give rivals any advantage. Saturday's game was a good example with the absence of Dobbie. I'm sure Brechin's game plan would have been different if they had known Dobbie would not appear.

    I am at this time drafting an e-mail to Mark Blount asking for an update.

    The fact that Dobbie had a back injury on Saturday starts the wheels turning that he is going elsewhere, with the latest on the Pie & Bovril thread for this weekend's match, some Arabs fan is saying Motherwell. When I was speaking to Dobbie straight after the game on Saturday, he informed me that he should be back on Saturday. The goalkeeper situation is even more bizarre, with Martin struggling after Saturday and perhaps no faith in playing Leighfield at Tannadice, when the club has the frozen out Lee Robinson available to play.The talk of bringing in a fourth goalkeeper on loan is crazy. Naysmith has stated this morning that two outfield players will be recruited before Saturday too.

    Admin, I do think that all things being equal, the paying fans deserve at the very least a statement of what on earth is going on.

    If tittle tattle is not quashed, it can grow into conspiracies, - and I would not be alone on Saturday in immediately thinking 'had Dobbie had enough and decided to look elsewhere?' - as there had been no previous indication of any injury.

    I do not watch Eastenders (or any Soaps) because I cannot stand the backstabbing and bitchiness that seems inherent in that type of programme, - but listening to the stories circulating in the main stand, - it was as though I was in the middle of a real life Soap, but with one major difference, there was no -one to control the script writing! So we definitely do require some sort of honest appraisal.

    I certainly wouldn't expect (or want) Mark to give a full and frank explanation of all the craziness that is allegedly going on behind the scenes, - but what would be good would be a statement to the fans along these lines: thanking them for their patience and reassuring them that the BOD will do everything in their power to ensure that they will put the best team they possibly can on the park.

    ~
    It is clear that we are now down to a hard core of 1200 fans, and that means that our budget is at best a third of the likes of St. Mirren and Falkirk, - so we simply cannot compete with those teams, regardless of how much we wish it were otherwise.

    Some radical new thinking may be required at Palmerston, - but given that our BOD have worked absolute wonders with the Arena it is hard to see where any extra income might come from.

    I await with baited breath for this announcement which I assume will be sometime today then?
