Wrote Himself Into History.

By Stuart McLaren

Wow! Probably the greatest season in Queen of the South's history, certainly in my life time! For the first time ever Queens graced Hampden Park on 24th May, taking on the mighty Rangers in the final of the Scottish Cup. Yet, if we had have gone out even at the Quarter Final stage, in possibly my best moment following Queens, against Dundee, I still think we would have been looking back on this as a pretty special season.


2007/2008 - More of the Same

Even if Queens hadn't stunned the football world by reaching their first ever Scottish Cup Final, this would have been a pretty special year. In a normal year, a run of 7 straight wins, leading to 4th place finish in Division 1, our equal highest finish in recent years, and no relegation worries from about February, would have been more than enough to keep everyone happy. But this was to be more than just a special year. This was to be the best year ever. Until this year, I'd rate my best ever day following Queens as 20th April, 2002, the day Queens won the league at Forfar. However, on 8th March, 2008, even that day was surpassed as I witnessed something I never thought I would see, Queens making it through to a Scottish Cup Semi-final, and what a way to do it! Then came 12th April, 2008, and things, as if it was possible, got even better! 24th May, 2008 was a great day out, a great day to be a Queens fan, and so nearly eclipsed the previous 2 highs, even although Queens couldn't quite pull of a 3rd miracle of the season, the defeat to Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final did little to dampen a great day.

Site wise, there was little change from the previous season, perhaps the biggest update was the inclusion of most of my previous archive material into a database, to make it even easier to relive seasons like this one in the years to come.
