    Agm..............................

    What very disappointing coverage of last night's meeting. I'm sure loads of fans have been checking sites all over the place looking for any snippets of what happened.

    The BBC news sounds promising though!

    Absolutely incredible, I've never known so much apathy towards Queens in my life!

    Heard there was talk of maybe increasing admission prices next season for the first time in a while. Minimum £1 / maximum £2 on an adult ticket

    One of the longest questions ever asked at a meeting that didnít actually get properly answered. I think he was trying to ask if the Chairman regretted getting rid of Jim Thomson

    The chairman mentioned there will be a new tenant in the Arena next month although I’ve heard the BBC won’t actually move in until maybe June. It is though great news for the club

    Could be something to do with the price, Queens starts at £70, Falkirk , who are famous for being expensive , starts at £45 (£10 off if you are a season ticket holder).

    Hospitality is not only expensive but quality of meal provided isnít up to standard.

    Hopefully IF we ever get a new main stand they will place the kitchen away from the gents' toilets - been caught
    a few times at the interval thinking I am in the food queue when, in fact, its is the one for the toilet - certainly a
    very congested area and maybe even an elf and safety issue.

    whut 70 quid ,i take it that includes free drink from start to finish ,i couldnt justify paying 70 quid for watching match and a meal ,i can currently watch the match have a meal and get drunk on less than 70 quid ,so there would have to be something special for me to part with 70 likes lol .

    I also hear the state of the plastic pitch was briefly mentioned with the general opinion that it would last 5 rather than 10 years and there will be no return to grass.

    The Chairman did indeed confirm that and it was also mentioned Queens received a £40,000 grant towards to upgrade of the first 2 floodlights. Theyíll hopefully receive the same again when they start on the other two at the Portland Road End. It doesnít cover the cost in full but certainly helps

    The manager took a bit of a grilling at the end from shareholders. Some of the questions were completely justified and others were quite embarrassing. Have to say he dealt with them all very well despite some shareholders constant negativity

    The hospitality has vastly improved over the season after a couple of complaints. Young Danny Armstrong is still learning his trade and he’s doing a good job at the moment. It’s a great day out

    what you regard as negativity is only negative to the people who think things are going well ,these guys you think are negative thay wont be thinking that as thay will be thinking the exact opposite ,what was all getting said that could be regarded as negative likes ?
