Thread: all gone quiet at palmy

    all gone quiet at palmy

    same as last season the season before and as many a season as i can remember ,lots of decent players released from clubs ,most of the ones anyone would want are getting snapped up by other clubs ,until we are left with the ones no one wants ,then we take our pick from those ,this seams the way it has gone over the past seasons ,we currently have a thread bare squad ,with lots of work needing done to get decent players in for certain positions ,once again it looks like we shall be picking from the dregs ,if we want to mount any serious challenge for promotion we need to be moving fast when these windows open ,our only hope of decent players now lie with the players the manager says he has put offers infront of ,if those fail ,i just hope our manager can get decent loans and at least a couple more decent ones from the dregs or it could be a mediocre season for our big centenary season .the defence has to be strict priority .

    Francis, I understand your concerns, but the problem is that most of the players are on holiday at the moment and probably considering their futures, - while naturally holding out for the best offer they can get.

    Its very much a two way street out there and we will have to bide our time until such times as the doors close elsewhere for some of the available players.

    Obviously quality players such as Dobbie and Harkins will make a huge difference to any squad, - but I'm not convinced that too many big fish will raise the quality any further. Having those players in our team should inspire the youngsters on to greater things, - and we must remember that Livingston did not have a Dobbie or a Harkins!

    A winning mind-set and a 100% commitment to the full 90 minutes for every match from every player will make all the difference, and that coupled with the genius of Dobbie and Harkins should see a top four finish in my opinion, - even with the calibre of teams that are in the Championship.

    yes jardi i agree but the whole point is the defensive situation needs sorted ,we have about the worst defence in the league ,we conceded far too many last season and this season we have got even weeker with marshall leaving ,queens canot afford to have another mediocre season ,scoring loads of goals but conceding just as many just wont do ,crowd numbers are at a stage where queens have to show improvement or thay will fall further .

    yea ftivano then its even a bigger priority we get decent players in especially if we cant rely on loans ,that makes matters 10 times worse for queens if we end up having to choose the dregs ,without getting quality loans we are up st.i.t creek without a paddle lol ,i just hope we can get a decent defence inplace this season .

    The manager was on holiday last week and is already quoted as saying offers have been made to several players and we’re now waiting for their decisions

    Very much a waiting game at the moment as Jardi has pointed out with players, encouraged no doubt by their agents, waiting to see where the best offers will come from before committing to any offers they may have on the table. A frustrating period in the close season but hopefully the manager can pull a few from the hat particularly in defence as Francis has stated which is an area in need of strengthening!!!

    The interviews are today and from the look from this tweet Naysmith looks like a strong candidate for the job.

    Amazed also that Gary was of any interest to Carlisle United - in fact thought it was a wind - up until
    I saw his name on the various bookmakers odds lists !

    I see Mark Durnan has signed for Dunfermline. A few former Doonhamers still at East End Park even with Nicky Clark away to the Arabs.

    albertz one thing iv learned about queens over the years ,year in year out our manager about a week after the window opens comes out with iv put offers on the table to this that and the next player ,9 times out of 10 these offers fail ,then we get so far into the window nearly all the players that id bother even thinking about have already accepted deals elsewhere ,then we will have the pick of the dregs as i call them ,you might get the odd average joe here and there out of them but nothing to get the pulse racing ,so camon mr manager prove me wrong and lets see some decent players sign ,i just hope we can get a few quality loans in for the season as no doubt thats what it could come down too ,we have the same defence minus our best full back whos left as last season which conceded far too many goals ,i get that theres still plenty of time left to get some decent ones in but iv heard it all before time and again ,we will have a squad but im not holding out alot of great hope that itl be a promotion challenging one ,we might end up hovering around the playoff places like usual as it shouldnt be a hard task in which will prob be the weekest championship in many a year anyways .
