  1. KILMARNOCK v DUNDEE - Saturday, 3pm Kilmarnock are struggling at the bottom of the Premiership and are yet to register their first victory. That said, they were excellent in their draw with Aberdeen at Pittodrie last weekend and arguably should have taken all three points. Their problems lie at the top end of the park, with just four goals scored in six games to date. Confidence was boosted at Dundee last Saturday as they inflicted St Johnstone’s first defeat of the campaign to give Neil McCann his maiden Premiership victory as full-time manager. They were brought crashing back down to earth by Celtic in midweek, but that was a mismatch from the outset. In new signing AJ Leith-Smith and Sofien Moussa they have a genuine goal-threat, but have conceded more than anyone else in the league (14). A tough one to call and I suspect it will be tight. Prediction: Kilmarnock 1-1 Dundee
  2. Killie in the news 21st Sep

    Killie manager Lee McCulloch admits he is not surprised top English Championship sides are showing an interest in Jordan Jones. Fulham and Norwich City are rumoured to be eyeing up a move for the winger after a string of impressive displays in 2017 Jones was in top form on Saturday as he helped Kilmarnock to a 1-1 draw with Aberdeen, scoring the equaliser at Pittodrie. Lee Clark brought Jones to Rugby Park last summer and after a slow start he finished the season with some top performances under McCulloch. Saturday’s man of the match efforts were just the latest notable showing by Jones in a Kilmarnock shirt. It hasn’t gone unnoticed at international level either, with Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill reported to be an admirer of the winger. And the Kilmarnock Standard understands Killie could look to thrash out a new deal with Jones as they look to keep hold of one of their top men. On the interest from English clubs, his manager McCulloch said: “I’m not surprised there has been reported interest in Jordan. “I know he had said that since the start of the season, he hadn’t been at his best. But I actually think Jordan is being a bit harsh on himself there. “My job is to make sure he’s working as hard as he possibly can every single day and if he does that, it’ll stand him in good stead in terms of going to the World Cup. “If he doesn’t make the squad for the tournament, I’ve told him to make sure it isn’t because of a lack of application, dedication and effort.” McCulloch added: “Jordan’s a match winner with pace to burn. If we’re being ultra-picky, he could add goals to his game which would make him an even bigger asset.” Killie managed to secure the draw at Pittodrie in what was their most impressive display of the season so far. Jones’ effort cancelled out Stevie May’s early goal and Killie could have gone on to win the game after Stuart Findlay hit the bar. “I’ve watched the game a few times and we could have come away with three points,” said McCulloch. “But it was good to get a good performance and to also get a deserved point. “The most pleasing thing for me was that we managed to do the ugly side, we scratched and clawed our way into the game. We had a ridiculous togetherness and that’s what is needed.” Asked if he had a target for the next two matches with Dundee and Ross County McCulloch, who has won the Scottish Premiership three times as a player, said: “Some people have targets and look ahead but I think it’s so important to take it one game at a time. “It’s so important to approach it like that in this league and, having won it, I know if you start looking too far ahead, you can lose focus.”
  3. Killie News 20th Sep

    Lee McCulloch on the Aberdeen game in the local paper. "That ends the run of 13 straight defeats against Aberdeen. But, when you see the manager they have, the squad they have and the way they play you know it's going to be hard. That makes it a massive point, and will hopefully be the turning point of the season because the boys have been under a lot of pressure. Now we can look forward to showing we do have good players."

    It can be, thoughts? Yes no?

    Kilmarnock's 18-year-old defender, Iain Wilson, has been sent for a scan on a knee injury that forced him to be substituted against Aberdeen on Saturday. Fulham and Norwich City are following the progress of Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones, the 22-year-old who has also been earmarked for a Northern Ireland call-up and scored in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Aberdeen. Former Kilmarnock player Dylan Kerr, 50, is on course to lead Gor Mahia to the Kenyan league title after an eight-game unbeaten run took the Nairobi side nine points clear at the top of the table.

    The 3G surface seems to suit 11 other teams in the league, just not Killie.

  12. Oh dear...

    What a waste of time this topic is.
  13. A Culture Problem at the club

    I worry that we lack players who are at the peak of their football career. Our squad is full of great young talent and older heads ( above 32) but I think we are missing a core group of 25-30 that are battle hardened
  14. Need Changes team

    Samizadeh would get injured playing first team football for any more than 10 mins
  15. If Jig quits

    Surely if Jig goes we should be going down the tried and tested route. Locke, Johnston and now Jig are practically fresh out the box.
