    This is the kind of thing I'd like to see the Community/SLO people doing. with a bit of imagination there could be some great things happening at Palmerston.

    Come to think of it , when was the last time we actually heard anything from the Chairman or BOD's ? Some sort of update would be appreciated especially with the new season only days away

    Thanks for bringing this one up aloreburn and the positive response from everyone. The St Mirren support are to be congratulated on their initiative which we can easily follow. First of all this site supports any effort to improve the atmosphere at Palmy but will not have anything to do with a group which operates outside the law. The Police and Stewards are here to protect us and we must not encourage rowdy behaveiour at matches. The Club have made it quite clear what the laws are and any group should clarify this with the club and of course the police. Notwithstanding the many derogatory remarks directed at the club over the years by the usual suspects we have enjoyed a remarkable renaissance since John Connolly dragged us up from medeocrity to the Championship in 2002.The club has been kepy aflolat by the contribution in financial terms by serving Chairman and Directors. The fans have responded thanks to the many supporter clubs including the remarkable Doonhamers Travel Club who continue to put bums on seats for away games.

    Let's regain the momentum and get this club moving again. A wee bird tells me that a former director is about to return to the club - watch this space.

    Queens Mad welcomes any initiative by any group to improve the atmosphere at Palmy. The formation of a choir with banners should be encouraged. Sponsors on this site have made banners available in the past and the templates are still held on computer by Queens Mad. The banners may still be around.


    COME AWAY THE QUEENS

    what do you mean by a group opperating outside the laws admin lol ,all these clubs have there own private stewards ,thay have to or these singing sections would only last a few matches before there empty each week ,why do you think the atmosphere is gone at palmy ,its not because of poor team on park or anything to do with the queens team atol ,its quite simply because of the what you say law ,over zelous stewarding and policing have forced the people that cause atmosphere to either not bother with it or not come back ,every one of these clubs that have started singing sections have got that sorted ,but i bet queens wont sort it out as the attitude your taking about what you call the law ,people just wont last in a singing section there will be umpteen bans and arrests then singing section abandoned ,your idea of law at football and whats needed for a singing section are miles apart admin lol

    Another great display from the St Mirren fans on Saturday . We must have enough fans interested in creating some sort of colour and atmosphere at Palmerston and away games

    It was fairly clear from the last message from the club on the official website that they do read the posts on this site so hopefully they can encourage something similar to be put in place at Palmerston.

    yes arrol it was quite along time ago since thay were swarming around them like flees to a sh__t ,since then theres been 0 atmosphere for that long time you speak about ,just you watch ,at some point the atmosphere will get going again but how long will it be before you see all the stewards swarming around the singers ,then them going all quiet cause the stewards are watching them ,until eventually they just stop going ,are the fans who want an atmosphere prepared to stick up for them ?

    As the Terregles Street Terracing has a safety certificate, would it not be a good idea to have the singing section there to create a bit of atmosphere again that end of the stadium. The various flags are usually displayed by the away support from time to time, so why not have the Queens banners there instead alongside the singers.

    The Oakbank Services terrace is the place for the singing section and it could be taped off by the stewards for this purpose. Having the singing section on the Terregles Street entrance would be a logistic problem with potential conflict with visiting support and other problems with entrance/exit and catering arrangements for probably a handful of singers. If anyone would like to form a group then get in touch with me and I will try and coordinate something. I have good communications with the club. Also my collegue Lord Palmerston can arrange suitable items on the tannoy.

    The only display of flags I can remember in recent times was one that Palmy Lad and others organised at a midweek League Cup versus Rangers a few seasons ago. Palmerston has never really been a stadium where fans displayed flags etc. although the atmosphere was 100 per cent better on the terracing than it is nowadays.

    Drummer Boy should be in charge of the singing section.

    There's no need tape off a section for any singing section . Just meet behind the goals up by the blue pole
