    Arbroath v Queens

    Well that's the Betfred Cup games over for another season as far as Queens are concerned so it is now time to concentrate on our league opener. TBH don't have a clue how this match will turn out with both clubs having scored 10 goals and Queens also conceding 10 while our opponents have 8 against.

    It's Queens.... 3 v 0 or 0 v 3 or 2 v 2 or 6 v 4... god only knows? Expect both teams to score and would like to think that Queens score the most. Hopefully another defender and/or midfielder brought in.

    Teams who are suspected to be floating around the bottom like this we simply have to be beating.

    They'll be up for it being their first championship league game.

    Yes not an easy first game but we can get a result The team needs games together and the signs at Greenock were encouraging I can't make it to Arbroath so looking forward to reading positive posts here.

    It would be very useful to hit the road running for the start of the season and a win away from home will do just that. Mon the South.

    Hope Andrew is keeping well. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him.

    Yes I am trying to recall the last time Andy (Andrew) was at Palmerston.

    Interesting to note that Arbroath are charging the same adult admission price per game as Queens at 18. Yet they are offering season tickets for 220 which includes friendly matches and any play off games that may arise. Even with just the 18 home league matches,that comes out as 12.22 per match. Queens season tickets are currently 285 which equates to 15.83 per 18 league games and I'm not sure if the ticket allows for any other matches. Surely Queens could possibly have a rethink regarding next seasons ticket pricing. Because at Arbroaths prices I would certainly buy one. Money in the bank at the start of the season to buy players.... no brainer.

    We’re absolutely skint and can’t afford to reduce prices buddy.

    I'm not sure you can compare a part-time club's season ticket prices to a full time one. Queens won't be paying top dollar for full time players but I'd be astounded if our wage bill and running costs weren't a bit bigger than Arbroath's. I would say we're borderline surviving as a full time club as it is so reducing prices is probably not even being considered. I get that reducing prices may attract more buyers but can we risk the reduced price being made up with the number of extra tickets that MAY be bought. I think buying a season ticket that works out at a reduction of over 2 per game is a fair enough deal.

    Should be a competitive game with a bigger home crowd than usual to see Arbroath presented with their
    league - winning trophy / flag. I see the bookies have the Red Lichties down as favourites but hopefully a
    good away support can sheer us on to victory (at least 3 buses going)
    PS - have a wee look at out first league visitors to Palmy - Dunfermline FC - whose game is on BBC Scotland
    tonight.

    I’m a bit worried that we’re heading into our first league game with such a small squad. AJ is obviously trying to strength by finances are the stumbling block yet again. You just can’t go through the season like this again. It’s not as if the Chairman hasn’t any money to help us out

    It's what we do every season. Start off with the absolute bare minimum.

    Or target used to be a top 4 finish now it appears its 8th.

    Another garbage season and it will be time to throw weight behind a change at the top. I defended them but am starting to lose patience now.
