    Magic will be hoping to put one over on his old team this Saturday. I'll not go down the usual route of "it'll be hard without Dobbie", other players should be stepping up to the plate. First priority is to try and keep another clean sheet, that will build confidence throughout the team. Dunfermline looked very impressive in the first half V Dundee last week, playing a pressing, high tempo game, but couldn't maintain it in the second half, hopefully we don't do a Naysmith and sit back letting them dictate the early play. Sticking my neck out to predict a narrow home win.

    Iím actually really concerned regarding the lack of signings in recent weeks. Is there a reason we havenít got more players in place by now ?

    At the moment Queens are very much a new team. I’d take another draw and a clean sheet.

    Very impressed with the Pars first half performance and tbh they should have out of sight if they had taken their chances but the Dundee penalty just on half - time seemed to spook them and they played second fiddle to the team from Tayside in the second 45 minutes although the best player on the park imo was young Dunfermline striker Nesbit

    Johnston in the papers today saying he's wanting another couple in asap. Liam Brown 20 year old midfielder, ex Queens Park and Motherwell who has been training with us since pre-season might be one that Johnston says could be offered a deal.

    the fact we’ve already started the league campaign with such a small squad is a worry. There must be a reason but it remains a concern.

    It's not always the Club's fault. Rumoured that the Club had verbally agreed a deal with one player but he reneged at the last minute even though the club had upped their original offer to get him.

    Simple answer Aloreburn as we all know is the lack of finances through the lack of supporters willing to spend there money watching the Queens.

    Magic appealing for a big turnout of Queens fans tomorrow in today's D and G Standard but cannot see more than the usual diehards attending though hopefully I am wrong !

    Half time... outmuscled , outfought, and, deservedly losing. Had chances though. Looking forward to" A game of two halves" 'Mon the South! Edit unlucky header off the bar last move.... that's it!

    Well deserved draw in the end. Surely they got the attendance wrong today though???

    Same old, same old story of a game of two halves. As Bagapapa has said we were not at the races first half when we were out muscled all over the pitch and constantly second to the ball to a side that were not that impressive. A change at half time replacing the clearly not full match fit Semple, I could be cruel and say unfit, with Kidd bolstered the outgunned midfield. This changed the complexion of the game with Queens much more on the front foot and were unlucky, or more correctly through terrible refereeing, not to take all three points. Begs the question as to why we so often start games as though we are not fully prepared?

    Decent game that ! We had the 2nd and Pars the first.------ El Bak lasted a lot better than I thought beforehand as I reckoned he would toil fitness wise. This lad proved today he has some lovely touches and maybe a bit of TLC just needed to get his confidence and form of 4 years ago back -------Keeper was solid as I expected. Coming out for crosses as well. Wow !---------Brownlie didn't have his best game on the deck but was his usual powerful force in the air. --------Holt is not quite at it but he is getting there. A gutsy 100% performance----Semple was awful. No where near fit enough and too heavy ( as yet). I thought August was far too soon to see him back to his best but he will also get there hopefully sooner rather than later -----Pybus has far more football than Jacob's but not the same dogged like performer that chases back and forth . Who does though ? Jacob's was very good at it but couldn't pass. I prefer Pybus who can improve on his sharpness where as Jacob's couldn't improve on his skill level. . ------Paton is over the hill . A useful squad player but I wouldnt start him. He was absolutely knackered when he got subbed. Ability never been in doubt though but I always had reservations about his desire and will to win --------A very good and workmanlike display by Oliver who I thought was our MOM. ------ Murray was so-so today but we know what he can do . ------- Well, two draws out of two. No real complaints so far but nothing too much to rave about either. Anyone that moans about our squad should take into account the attendance today. We are not well supported and you cant spend what you dont have. Looks like it needs a end of the season crisis like last to get the Dumfries public out.

    Semple's level of fitness is just awful. The guy can play as we know but currently he is behind Brownlie and Kilday from my point of view.
    A lot of hard work needed on the training field for us to see him back to his best.
