    Qos v Annan

    Well, we have a derby tomorrow although you wouldnt think it. To be fair, there isn't anything like the sort of needle or indeed interest that our former derby game v Gretna generated. Still be nice to cuff them though. Paton will probably start and freshen up the midfield . Come on Queens , let's see the first competitive goals of the season.

    It's only because it's the silly season JR...……...if this was the 3rd or 4th round of the Scottish Cup next January, - you'd have a lot of interest. The only thing people are interested in at the moment is their summer holidays...…...and people deserve them, - so you can't blame them.

    I cant see us getting through to the next stage now and I'll tell you why. In previous seasons you could get away with a defeat if you won the other three and had a healthy plus goals difference. We are already minus 3 so sneaking into one of the four best runners up looks unlikely.

    That's true to the fans Jardi but maybe not so much to the club. Queens have admitted in recent years that early exits in the cups really hurt them financially.

    Time will obviously tell but games against Annan, Dumbarton and Morton should all be looked on a winnable. I'm not writing us off yet.

    Not a fan of Summer football then Jardi? For what it's worth neither am I and these early starts in the middle of the traditional summer holidays are a joke but the powers that be at Hampden don't really consider the supporters as exemplified by the Challenge cup fiasco.

    To be honest Spike I am a fan of football in better weather and I would have no qualms about the league being extended to the end of May or early June, - but I really don't think football should be played in the heat of summer, nor should it be competing with cricket, Wimbledon and summer holidays, - its not fair on football, - nor is it fair on the minority sports or when people are trying to have some family time. Life is all about balancing out work and play and the football authorities need to be mindful of that.

    Equally, - if we must start in early July, - then for the love of God, - please allow small cubs like Queen of the South, - and effectively any outside the top 4 or 5 SPL clubs to play trialists in this competition. As I've said already, there should be absolutely no harm in clubs doing this, - and should they then choose not to keep them - then that player would only be ineligible for the BetFred cup, - which to be honest is not going to affect too many teams!

    I am 100% aware that being eliminated at this early stage in the competition is not at all good, - as it is potentially one of the easiest competitions in which to progress. For Queens this season, - the Motherwell match came far too soon for them, - and it's just a shame that it wasn't their last fixture.

    Alas, we can't do anything at all about it, - except trying to beat everyone else and score as many goals as possible in the faint hope that Queens might be one of the best runners up.

    Point gained that was undeserved. No doom and gloom from me. Assuming we lose the penalties that is?

    If I was going to be diplomatic about it ,I would say we are a work in progress and will have to raise our performance levels considerably to compete in the Championship. On the other hand, if I was using my factory speak, I'd say we were ****ing dreadful.

    Well, it's all about the BOD this season. Another sh**fest and the blame lies squarely at their feet.

    This has to be one of the worst squads I have seen, its going to be a long hard season avoiding relegation with this lot, after the game in the pub I heard someone say bring back Garry Neysmith, this lot are a absolute shambles.

    Comes down to the budget. On paper it's certainly a worse squad than last season although I was quite impressed with the way we played on Saturday in the first half.

    I just don't think the fan base could tolerate another season struggling.

    The club need to come out with what this season's target is.
    I'm looking at that squad and thinking we've built a team to be the cheapest it can be purely to survive in the division.

    Although I would have preferred a Queens win it was nice to see another local club do well. Pleased for the players, management and supporters from Annan who seemed to be having a good night in Dumfries.

    Just over 1,000 home supporters at our first two competitive games will decrease significantly if this squad is not strengthened. I could excuse the defeat from Motherwell as they were obviously a far superior team but last night's display was as poor as I have ever seen and, believe me, I have witnessed some shockers over the years.

    Second competitive game of the season with a new squad of players still being added to so I think we need to cut the team some slack until they have settled in and the manager has had a chance to decide on his best formation before the criticism starts.

    deek i agree 100% and think we are no better than a struggling team under our current stewardship ,our chairman hasnt got the financial clout to move us forward ,unless we sign a couple of very good players over the next few weeks we are heading for another relegation dogfight ,this time i can see most the fans walking earlier than usuall to leave us with very low attendances ,queens need to be challenging for the title each season to have the crowds needed to sustain a BOD that dont bankroll .
