Thread: Dundee United- Last home game

    Dundee United- Last home game

    Likely Derek Lyles last game for our club and our last home game of the season . Let's turn up - if you can - and give the lads our backing . Some of these players wont be back here again so let's appreciate their efforts. Be great to see vocal backing for the Tan Man. Dundee United have hit form recently and will be right up for this as they build momentum for the play offs.

    Iíve see on social media they are planning a Del Day for his last two appearances ( one at home & one away )

    A minutes applause on the 9th minute , Derek Lyle face masks along with vocal backing throughout the game. Itíll be sad to see such a likeable character go

    Hopefully Del will play at Brechin too. Great night at Ibrox last night at Lyle's testimonial dinner. I had Brownlie Burns Clark Higgins Russell and Paton at my table. I was also speaking to Fordyce Mercer Jacobs Dobbie Murray Thomas and Stirling.

    Not at all. The players were extremely approachable.

    With a name like ALBERTZ_11 i suppose it’s no surprise you went to Ibrox and not his Dumfries testimonial

    What should happen on Saturday is for us to play 4-4-2 with Dobbie and Lyle up front and Del, Captain for the day, leading the team out on what will be his last appearance at Palmerston for us and then subbed with about 10/15 to go to receive the recognition he so richly deserves.

    That's what I - and most fans I am sure - would love to see but I don't expect Naysmith will allow us that pleasure.

    After the miserable season, especially our dire home performances, we have had we surely deserve to have something to celebrate even though it means a true legend leaving the Club.

    United are hitting form at the wrong time for us but I hope we can stay in the game to maintain a positive atmosphere for Del's last home appearance.

    I remember well Jimmy Robertson's last home game for us which went horribly wrong.

    He was Captain for the day and we were well and truly thrashed 7-0 by Alloa.

    It was hard going but I managed to put the result to one side and stay on until JR had left the pitch.

    I hope there is no repeat of that on Saturday but if there is I hope the majority overcome their disappointment and stay on to ackmowledge Del's superb contribution to Queen of the South over the years.

    I see in today’s Standard Del wants to continue playing next season after his Queens contract is up.

    I'm not at all surprised by that. I'd be trying to tempt him to stay at Palmerston next season. I could see him going part-time with Dumbarton with Iain Russell being there.

    I wouldn`t be trying to tempt him to stay on. Fantastic servant for us but time for him to move on and probably drop down a level if he wants to start regularly.

    It would've been good to have Lyle stay on for the Centenary season. If Dumbarton get relegated to League One thru the play-offs that would be a better level for Lyle now I expect.

    Last home game and it would be nice to get a decent result but for me it`s all about Lyle last home match for us which I hope he starts and scores as it would be great to see him putting the ball in the net one last time at Palmerston for Queens.

    I fully expect to see Lyle still playing next season but not for us as at his age he wants to be starting regularly and he will be a good signing for the teams in the leagues below the championship.

    Lets hope for a decent turnout on this warm sunny day to see Del off after his illustrious career. True Queens fans will be there today to say goodbye to a Legend. .

    Well that was a transformation!

    Queens played like Livi, - in the face of Dundee Utd from the kick off, tracking back after every ball and forcing the Utd players into making mistakes.

    It wasn't the prettiest game I've ever seen, - but the effort from every Queens player had the drummer drumming, the fans singing, the manager managing and all of us wishing it was the first home game of the season instead of the last.

    Whatever has been said to Naysmith has worked, and we had 14 pretty decent players really believing in themselves, playing like great players and wanting to win.

    We should never expect players on inflated wages at Palmy, - but we should expect 100% from anyone who pulls on the jersey.

    Can we have more of what we saw today next season please?

    There might be a late surge in the shirt draw on the back of that performance!

    Where was John Rankin today ?

    Could easily have been 5 or 6 nil. We are a good team when we are set up correctly to attack! Imagine where we would be if we had started the season with this squad and had a level of consistency.

    Good send off for Lyle. Will always be a Queens legend.

    What a glorious day that was and I'm not just talking about the weather. Queens were a real team from the off and we could easily have been a couple up before we scored . Now , if we can just try and keep the nucleus of this side and add a little more . Ps Please sign Thomson -----------Loved the passion from the Palmerston crowd today and can we have some more ? Was heartening to see so many young boys in the singing group and we must encourage this more often. The legend Lyle got a wonderful reception from the Palmerston faithful and he will never forget that . Even the classic AC/DC track added to the match experience today. Bravo, bravo

    Sometimes there comes along a game that leaves the punters at Palmy with a smile on their faces and this was one of them - lovely weather, decent crowd (over !,500) and an in your face, aggressive performance by the Doonhamers. Just
    a pity it took months to get a home win. Also nice to see the management team actually shouting on the players which
    I have not seen this season and Jardi for one will be mighty pleased at that scenario.

    Rankin awakened on Saturday with a sore back. He's also a teetotaller.
