    Offer another contract ?

    There are a few guys going back to parent clubs and others leaving Queens for pre contracts elsewhere. Dobbie is the only player under contract for 19/20 so who would you offer a contract extension to and who should be shown the door ? A huge rebuilding job for AJ and will not be easy on the money we can afford compared to others. Whatever, I'm looking forward to more attacking football than under Gary, taking the game to the opposition .

    Martin- out, but we maybe can't afford a better replacement.
    Leighfield- keep as back-up
    Mehmet- out.
    Mercer- keep
    Brownlie - chase
    Fordyce - out
    Marshall - get him signed
    Doyle - get him signed
    Murray- get him signed
    Stirling - keep, but doubtful if he will be
    Jacobs - not too fussed if he signs or not
    McGrath- chase
    Think that's them all apart from loanees, etc.

    your no far wrong with that assessment of who should stay and go auld chippy ,but id have stirling on a get him signed tag ,great wee player ,one things for sure we need a decent central defence signed up and someone decent to partner dobbs ,stay clear of the rumble types like what we had in dykes i couldnt watch another season with a player like that in the squad dont know how many times i lost my voice moaning at him balls bouncing of his legs and shins while trying to control balls lol .

    Have to disagree about your assessment of Dykes Francis, he's a frustrating player I admit, but he's a much improved player in workrate and attitude this season. He's also been an ever-present and would hardly have secured a move to a (middling) Premiership club like Livingston if they didn't think he had potential. A player like Dobbie needs someone with a bit of physical presence and running to pressure the opponents and Dykes provided this. Last season I would have been delighted he was moving but he's been an important player this term although he left his scoring tally until a bit late.

    Didn't think I would say this but Brownlie has impressed me since coming back in. Has been a good ariel threat and has been running out of defence comfortably with the ball at his feet. Maybe I need a lie down in a darkened room, I dont know!

    Just the apparent lack of a brain is his main downfall. He gives away needless fouls in dangerous areas when a bit of composure is needed. Agreed he has played ok during the play-off games but I wouldn't be trusting him as our regular centre half against Championship sides. On the plus side....... sorry went too far there.

    Ha Ha , nice one Anyway, back to the player in person. No matter what the truth about him is , I think we can both agree that he has been more impressive recently than we would have thought I'm going to stick my neck out and say I'd keep him.

    Semple to come back on loan from Ross County if he doesn’t get a start up North?

    I would also keep Stirling. With the right manager, he could really do well.

    Think Marshall May play the same waiting game as last Summer.

    Talk of Marshall giving up fulltime football.

    Id keep Martin as a no.2 keeper. He's the best of the bunch. It's not fair keeping Jack on as he's just going to be another Atkinson warming the bench for the rest of his career.
    Saying that he could maybe go out on loan ?

    I think Fordyce will leave.
    Stirling can see being released as well which IMO would be disappointing.
    Mercer , I would release. He flatters to deceive, never does anything despite his work rate.
    I would keep Brownlie. Was never a fan but his efforts under AJ so far have been impressive plus potentially with the right work a set piece threat.
    Keep Jacobs, needs to cut out sloppy mistakes but he's 90% solid.
    Marshall keep obviously.
    Doyle must keep although where will he play if we bring in another centre half ?
    Murray definitely sign. Massive potential and a new lease of life.

    ones to keep martin,marshall,brownlie,doyal,stirling,bell,murra y,dobs.


    out of the others jakobs,mercer,possible keeps, rest can go .
    with our piss poor budget getting handed down from our board i just hope magic and sandy have a decent eye for talent and a decent pulling attraction to out of contract players but i do reckon thay will get a better squad out of a poor budget than naysmith ever could ,so i just hope queens can get a squad together that can put in a serious challenge at the top end of the table next season .

    There may not be as many changes as some fans are hoping according to Magic's statement in the Standard -
    '' You don't want a completely new team you want to keep a nucleus together. There will be changes but you don't want too many but we have a lot of work to do to bring players in ''

    That's not too bad. Kyle, a real 100%er if there ever one was prone to loose passes and really wasnt a great passer in general. His main game was closing team , stopping the other team and to be fair he was decent at that.

    Doyle isn't a central midfielder, he is a right back or centre back defender.
