2003/2004 - Why Are We So Good?
The Palmerston trophy cabinet was bare for the first time in two years this season, but it was a no less exciting season for us. From the middle of October, Queens sat top of the first Division for 5 weeks, and went on to secure a very comfortable 5th place finish, which although the same as the previous year, felt so much better as it was only 3 points from 3rd.
The other highlight of the year was 2 away cup games to Premier League opposition. Although beaten in both of them, the size of Queens travelling support on both occasions took the SPL by surprise, on a Wednesday night in Edinburgh, 1800 Queens fans totally overwhelmed 2 Easter Road turnstile operators, and in January nearly 3000 made their way up the M74 to face a slightly more prepared, but still trying to get away with only opening half a stand, Motherwell.
Site wise, I started to use a bit of php programing towards the end of the season, which was to herald the dawn of a new, more interactive Only Team In The Bible.
