Thread: This club , our club

  1. #1

    This club , our club

    Just got back from holiday yesterday and had a quick look through the Mad site . What the hell is happening to us as fans of Queens with these post after post of negativity . We don't really need enemies when we can destroy ourselves (as we seem to be) Personally speaking , I think the BOD have done a remarkable job of keeping us competive as our gates have nosedived . This is an unenviable job and can't be easy at all. What we really need is a rallying cry to arms from Blount, Hewittson or Paterson. Tell us about the financial situation but also give us a call to arms to get around the club again. We , as a group , ( and heaven knows there ain't that many of us) will respond the such a plea and are far stronger as a united group than a fractious one . We are a smashing little club with a devoted hard core . Come on Queens, let's hear you.

    Yes well said JR as the negativity on this site has been somewhat depressing over the last few weeks. Equally the complete absence of communications has only added to the pessimism. We are much stronger together and as one voice rather than a splintered shambles.

    The fact is that we are one of the smaller clubs in the division and up against teams with bigger resources and budgets . It will be night impossible to rack up consecutive wins in this division but we can compete competitively. As we have done before , rally around the club and meet this challenge head on. Going in with a half hearted approach to backing the team is a nonsensical way to take on the bigger clubs. Younger fans are not going to be attracted to come and watch us either with such gloom . So , individually and collectively , give the team your utmost and you will get more back. Heaven knows we might even get more through the gate and start building the next generation of fans.

    That's a great post JRS , lots of doom and gloom including myself at times but it's time the club spoke to the paying fans . We need to know and we need to be as one again

    Fully agree JRS

    What was really disappointing yesterday was there was a very poor build up from the club for our opening league game of the season and no rallying call from the Chairman .
    And he wonders why crowds are so low

    Well said JR and I agree with what you say. 4-1 against Brechin was a good result yesterday, especially without the Dobmeister. We do need some quality additions though and the BOD have have taken a backward step recently in terms of communications with the fans but I remain hooked and hopeful of a decent league campaign and hopefully some extra drama in the two remaining cups. We're top of the league!

    It would be good to hear something from Queens . Plenty stories doing the rounds so it's up to them to either confirm or deny them . Communications between club and supporters has never been that great .
    Have to agree that some sort of rallying call from the Chairman would of been ideal before the season started . It's also vital all the fans and supporters groups get back together and be as one . Some need to get shot of their "them and us" attitude IMO .....

    Could not agree more, as a distant doonhamer it is still a great feeling to come down the road to watch my team, man and boy. It makes you appreciate what you have in great club. Granted things could be better but moaning about it does nothing and negativity will breed negativity. Make the most of it and appreciate the fact dobbie and lyle are legends and this season is their last. Do youself a favour move on and get out to palmy to support YOUR team.

    The them and us wasn't directed at the club v fans . It was directed at differnt Queens supporters with completely different attitudes .......

    Just read this on daily record sport*

    chuffed Queens boss Naysmith insists Lyle hasn’t lost his scoring touch.

    He said: “The aim was to get the three points and we’re delighted to score four. We ran out comfortable winners and the only slight disappointment was not being able to keep the clean sheet.

    “Derek missed a couple in the Betfred Cup but I told the chairman [Billy Hewitson] that if we keep getting chances then Del will not keep missing them.

    I sincerely hope to **** that this is not a sign of more money issues at queens first jt and if this is him trying to force managers to get rid of more legends we r in a bad way*

    I do hope im wrong but it does sound a very strange statement to make

    Why dont you contact Palmy Francis and state your case - there is a question and answer facility and you will get a reply. There is of course certain Bod information which is not available to the public.

    Thats the spirit JR - it's a pity we didn't have more supporters like you old pal. The usual suspects get on my tits at times - Having spent over half a century supporting my beloved Queens I have seen it all before. When we make a bad start to the season the long knives are out immediately and really we shud be geting behind the Board and manager. Football in general is struggling in Scotland but our Chairman and Directors are hanging in there to put a competitive team on the park. We are at best a middle of the league Championship side and I am confident we will consolidate this position this season. Our financial situation dictates what our playing budget is and in most cases we are way behind Dundee United,St Mirren,Falkirk etc. This is something we have to live with but thanks to revenue from the Queens Arena we are staying in touch with our rivals. There are moves afoot to increase our off field income, details of which will be announced soon.

    I am optimistic of a successful season - let's keep the debate going and prove the usual suspects wrong.


    COME AWAY THE QUEENS

    If it wasn`t for the usual suspects there would be no debate to be fair.

    I am concerned that in 10, 15 , 20 years , that people are going to look back at this era and say " the rot set in then and disinterest in the club flourished because of backbiting and infighting and you know what , they just let it happen " .

    Admin is correct about us competing with Dunfermline, St Mirren , Falkirk and others . They are pulling in THREE times as many fans as us and have considerably more income . When you look at our head to head record with those teams , then it is very decent indeed . Of course these sides are going to turn us over in games , but we are more than capable of doing the same size to them the next time we meet . Let's try and be thankful for what we have . Things aren't perfect but where is ? We can be better of course and pulling together as one would be a great help for starters.

    In all honesty I think many who may be perceived as negative actually care deeply about the club and give full support on match day. Letting of steam on a message board isn`t the same thing as not supporting our club. FWIW I agree the Board have done a fine job by and large in sorting out finances and keeping us as a full time competitive Championship side. That doesn`t mean the club gets everything right though.
