Thread: The Queens Choir

  1. #1

    The Queens Choir

    Perhaps I've missed it but I thought Queens were going to try and attract young fans back to Palmerston and encourage them to create some sort of atmosphere at games . St Johnstone FC for example gave their youngsters a small section where they're sing , make a noise , fly flags etc
    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

    the young generation have been scared away ,by the police and stewards ,i dont know how many times i need to say this but ,for the atmosphere to come back to palmy and for these lads to come back its going to take the board to give them full backing when something happens with the police and stewards ,or i say its farewell to atmosphere at palmy .

    I believe it was mentioned at an SLO meeting regarding the atmosphere at Palmerston . As far as I know nothing has been done to encourage it

    A great start to our league campaign with a 4-1 win but not one single song was heard from the terrace . Palmerston Park now has one of the worst atmospheres going Sad times

    Cannot see it improving very much - if at all - with the home support down to around 1,000. The only noise we are likely to hear this season is when the large following of the Arabs, Buddies, Bairns and Pars come to visit Palmy.

    The St Mirren fans have set up a group of supporters who are bringing some much needed noise and colour to their games . If you've a twitter account check them out on @stmirrrenactive . That's the way to do it

    Got to say that Saint Mirren look as if they are encouraging fans if they have allocated a space for their imitation "ultra" group. I would not knock that and would really hope that our BoD would encourage the "youth" (is it only for "youth"??) to organise a choir/noise and flag-centred show somewhere in the ground and ensure that the security folks do not get over zealous in their marshalling!

    That's a really good effort from the St Mirren supporters . Still waiting for Queens to help organise something similar

    I'm still waiting on Queens to do something to encourage and welcome fans back to Palmerston
    Noticed yesterday that Hibs & St Mirren went online and thanked fans for their support at the weekend . Take note Billy Hewitson

    Looked at the St Mirren active twitter page earlier . Their signing section is the best thing they've done and is funded by the fans themselves . Whenever they need money for materials ( fabric , paint etc ) they start a crowd funding page . It doesn't take much to organise and would a great idea for any Queens supporters interested in bringing some much needed colour and noise to Palmerston

    The St Mirren model does look like an excellent scheme and the more you involve the supporters with the likes of banners, flags and other displays the more likely they are to come on board. Perhaps this could be jointly funded by the club and the Queens trust?

    Not sure if the club & Trust would work together TBH .
    Firstly it needs Queens to try rally the troops and
    get as many supporters as possible interested . Contacting all supporters clubs , season ticket holders & junior blue members for starters then put an appeal out online and in the local media

    Right now I think it's a joke Queens haven't made any effort whatsoever

    as yous all must know these things come hand in hand with what happy clappers call trouble ,these singing sections the other clubs start ,the people organising them use there own private security ,which puts a stop to over zelous stewarding and policing ,there stewards are made up of volanteers from fans of the clubs so it comes to no cost to the club or supporters ,these volanteer stewards turn a blind eye to alot of the things the jobsworth stewards from the authorities would see as trouble .
