    That will most likely change once they appointment a new manager. McCall in the frame for it.

    Heard McCall with Archibald although why would he leave Ayr Utd?

    yep deek all rosey in the happy clapper camp ,"queens are existing " meanwhile after the 2 or 300 happy clappers are out the way the rest of us are wanting severe action taken and now ,at the top our chairman either shows his muscle or ships out ,and our manager looks out his depth ,then the players that aint pulling together need a foot up the ass .

    Utter bloody tripe !!"

    What are you talking about? I was making reference to fans criticising Dyks ability - as well you know, - and I also qualified it by saying that fans should be encouraged to voice their opinions. However, with regards to Lyndon Dykes, - many of those who shouted the loudest could really see his potential.

    Of course fans shouldn't meekly sit and accept poor performances, - and Francis has hit the proverbial nail on the head, - when he suggested "the players that aint pulling together need a foot up the arse."

    I am certainly of the opinion that at times our players have been guilty of not giving 100%. I can't comment on yesterday's match as I wasn't at the game, - but a lot was said about the distance to Inverness being a factor. As most of the players are central belt based, Inverness is an easy 3 hour drive, - so please don't use that as an excuse!

    Aye. I suspect Caldwell has been the root of their problems and fully expect them to rise.

    It sounded more like a general footballing statement than aimed at a individual player (Dykes)
    I'm surprised Dykes has been scoring as many goals but his work rate was never in question. I think a lot of fans had opinions based out with football shall we say and saw any mistake on the pitch as a easy a excuse to lay the boot in.

    Moving to our current squad: imo it's just as simple as the players are not good enough. We are struggling to compete at this level and it all comes down to our budget. We just can't attract decent players.

    What pains me the most is we currently have the best striker we probably will ever have, certainly in our generation, playing for the club yet we can't get a decent squad behind him.

    If ever there was a chance to gain promotion or at the very least get a top 4 it's right now yet out BOD aren't willing to gamble for one season and give it ago.

    Sorry but for me its time for a change at the top and fast.

    All well and good Deek as most of us would like to see something in the way inspiration from the board but is there actually anyone out there who has made it known that they are prepared to pump their own hard earned money into the club? Additionally they would have to be subjected to due and diligent assessment to ensure we do not end up with one of those con artists who essential bleed the club to the point of near extinction as has the case too numerous times in history, it is a long painful list. There would be no short term effect either as the transfer window is shut until January anyway so we are stuck with the squad of players we have therefore we just have to get behind them in the meantime and hope that we can start scoring again as that seems to be the major issue at the moment.Too few goals!!

    oh and i see richie nicol is organising a fighting fund over on the facebook site for fans to invest to give the manager cash for players ,maybe you and jardi could donate to this ?? especially jardi who runs a thriving business lol .



    so what your saying spike and jardi is our board have not got the financial muscle to move queens forward ,which leads us back to what some of us fans are saying why arnt thay looking to punt queens on to someone who can or even scour the planet for people with finacial muscle to join them ,il tell you why spike our current board want queens all to themselfs and would turn down anyone wanting to take over or hold out for silly money for them to buy them out same difference both ways ,which aint going to happen so thay need to just walk away ,and to the part where you say theres no one interested ,i reckon your wrong on that front aswell ,iv heard from a few inside sources that there has been at least two people interested in getting involved with queens board ,however who in there right mind would invest while hewitson is in charge .

    Name names Francis rather than this continual speculation on your part as to who is out there prepared to take Queens forward by investing large sums of their own money in our club. I have invested in the club through the purchase of a season ticket for many a year, a couple of the yearly Queens draw tickets and I am also a shareholder.

    I thought Richie Nicol's idea was a very sensible and practical way of creating a ring -fenced fighting fund for players.

    Quite frankly, I find your threatening tone quite off-putting Francis and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Iv heard the same rumour that there are two local business men who would be willing to take over and make funds available.

    You just have to look over the last ten years and where we have been. We are currently declining at a rapid rate.
    I'm not suggesting that we should be going for broke but the current budget is now starting to make us uncompetitive in this division and we are just going to end up driving the next generation of young fans away and back to being the pub team we were before the John Connolly years.

    Itís called passion Jardi, Francis is as angry as most fans with the lack of investment at Palmerston these days.

    It’s an excellent idea that’s works elsewhere with other clubs and we’ve a person involved now who’ll push it forward. I for one will be making a monthly donation.
    You’re best to ignore Francis Jardi. I’d rather listen to a successful businessman than that idiot.

    for starters jardi ,where have i said richies idea is a bad one i personally think its a great idea ,and secondly im baffled at where you see this threatening tone lol makes me laugh that one .tho yes i have been known to give it back to the have a go heros like scooby blue and aloreburn who just spout cheek and bile behind there keyboards when thay dont agree with people ,more and more people are now coming out show there frustration at how queens are going and where there looking like heading and want to see some action taken ,jardi another 1 or 2 seasons of queens going the way thay are with relegation budgets and poor squads youl find less and less fans defending the board ,which by then will probably be too late to address the issue .
