    I liked Naysmith. He gave his all for the club but ultimately he had to go. Good luck to him going forward.

    I think Naysmith will most likely drop down a league or two to get back into management.

    Yes wish him well as he came across as a decent honest fellow but his shortcomings were clear towards the end. As for trying to progress up the managerial ladder well they all do that if they have any ambition.

    Whether that's true or not , it would just make him the same as the rest of them. Our 'new' boss jumped ship the first opp he got as well. Thiats life

    yep magic used his short stay at palmy as a stepping stone last time ,my concern about this appointment is last time he inherated a very good up and coming young team after a relegation to a league that thay were bound to canter ,this time there is no top young talent after the senior players are gone ,he is doing it from near scratch this time around and his track record after leaving us ,has nosedived ,so he has found his way back and hopefully this time he wants to build and stay with the team he builds ,and for our chairman who sacked naysmith out of the blue at a silly time when he was in the process of doing the travelclub awards night was a disgrace ,naysmith had to go tho but timing was so spontanious ,and with that urgency i hope our chairman is going to flex his muscle and back our new manager to give him what he needs to challenge for honours .

    My only worry is if the players feel angry at the way Naysmith departed and decide not to put the effort in for these play offs and stick two fingers up to Queens.

    Saying that the Patrick game was probably the least motivated they've been. (Unless sacking rumours were known prior?) Only a few hours to tell.

    The ONLY person that knew what was about to happen at 7.30 on Saturday night was BILLY HEWITSON.

    Completely unprofessional IMO

    All I'm saying newby is that they are all the same. The minute a bigger job offer comes up whether it's a Premier or even a bigger Championship team then its adios amigos. Some fans need to realise that players and management are not fans of Qos like we are. Like any job you take the best offer

    Just like to add that being sacked by phone call is a cowardly way of doing things. Hewitson needs to hang his head in SHAME.

    Hewitson is no mug. I got told by a Lochmaben guy that knows Billy very well that Hewitson had approached Naysmith early in the season - when things were going very well- about signing a contract extension. Naysmith had shrugged him off , obviously not wanting to tie himself in if a bigger job came around. Near the end of the season the boot was on the other foot. Naysmith came knocking on Hewitson's door about another contract and Billy had said ( words to the effect of) I dont think so , we dont know what league we will be in.

    JR I heard this exact same story about two months ago from a different source where the circumstances had changed and the boot was firmly on the Queens foot rather than Naysmith's after the disastrous losing streak. Just another indication as to how fickle the nature of football is these days and for sure social media speculation only adds to this. Anyway lets hope that the new management team can instil the required desire and passion into the team tonight traits which were sadly lacking on Saturday.

    Because of the character of the person who told me this , I would say it's almost certainly true.

    Probably showed the level of anger and frustration after the abysmal display.
    If the rest of the board felt undermined by the decision nobody walked.

    In Naysmiths last 15 games in charge, Queens scored 8 goals. Magic has had three games scoring 9 times. Thank God Mr negativity is away.
