  1. The Great Killie Goalies Discussion

    I started going to games in the season we won promotion to the premier league and I never thought you could do better than Geddes in goals. I remember pleading with my dad to get the tartan goalie top rather than the home kit and I got the chance to wear it on the telly when an old program called N.B. was doing a feature on the Scottish Claymores American football team. His stop on the line last game of the promotion season which came off the bar and he clutched to his chest will stick with me the rest of my days. We have always seemed to have at least one top rate goalkeeper in the squad, amazes me when you see some teams struggle in that position to make a choice and stick with it.
  2. What about Brad Spencer do you think he might know any better?
  3. Worried about that guys missus in his bio, hasn't been let out to post after 3 football tweets on the 27th of June just under 8 years ago. Wonder if that's who he gets his insider information from?
  4. Psychology and perception

    There's only one hippo in these parts and I think a lot of folk would be happy to spend time with a purveyor of fine football stories and editor of a magazine .
  5. Songs

    The real question though is how many singers/non singers where actual supporters As has been mentioned on another thread how many of each group had on a wee pin badge/strip/full kit to make sure everyone knows they are true Killie folk or if they were just pretending? Without this information I don't think we can proceed with the arguement.
  6. Jamie Macdonald

    Might I be able to interject with another keeper who in my youth was a great shot stopper but always seemed suspect at crosses, so much so, that jokes where always made about being a vampire he was so afraid of them. This keeper though is 4th in the list for all time premier league appearances and had the record for most clean sheets until Petr Cech overtook him. I always thought David James was brilliant and yet he was slated for his ability to command his area and claim crosses but still played with Liverpool, Man City, Portsmouth etc. Jamie is a very good shot stopper for our level, distribution could do with improving and crosses are not his thing. I think that has been agreed upon within this thread, the next thing we should be discussing is what can be done to fix these issues and help him improve. I like Cammy Bell and think he should be given a chance in the cup, much like bigger teams do in other countries, but without seeing all the keepers in training every day it makes it hard to choose who our number one should be going forward.

    I know that there is a new statistic being used within OPTA for expected goals and a newer one being trialled which is for expected assists I would love to know how Jamie stands up to the chances that teams are expected to create and to score due to this new data being collected and assessed.
  8. Personal Dream Teams

    GK - Bobby Geddes RB - McPherson CB - Dindeluex CB - Monty LB - Tom Black RM - Ally Mitchell CM - Durrant CM - Burns LM - James Dayton CF - Tom Brown Striker - George McCluskey A lot of the team comes from when I first started watching Killie in the last season we played before moving on up to the premier league. Tom Brown could leap like a Salmon won so many headers he was not entitled too. Dayton goes in as I liked him and he fits into the left side of a 442 formation and noone else was coming from to mind.
  9. Rangers thread

    Looking like a good, powerful team wanting to get forward and get at them. Was hoping listening to the Clarke interview he had this type of team in mind and I think it might just pay dividends against them.
  10. Kris Boyd has 119 goals...

    Look at the crystal palace game as an example. 2-2 into injury time, benteke takes the ball off the regular penalty taker and misses meaning they only get a point rather than possibly getting 3 of the regular taker had got the chance instead. Very happy if boydie keeps taking them and sticking them away like he did yesterday.
  11. Next Manager Thread

    I would have thought better to announce today so that the players know he (whoever he is) is sitting in the stand, watching who he should keep and who fits into the style of team he will be looking to field in the future. A lot of these players should know they are on a shoogly peg as it is and a new manager might fire them up a bit to play as well as they can.
  12. Annan Match Thread

    Looks like a good team though was hoping Samizadeh, Cameron or Graham would have been given a chance starting in what is, relatively, the easiest game in the group section.
  13. Cammy Bell

    Looking at that as a whole made me think of Meldrum rocking up to the doors of the Theatre of Pies and have recurring flashbacks or his abilities. Now I can't eat my breakfast in fear of regurgitation.
  14. Clyde Match Day Fred

    I would rather we tried a 442 against (supposedly) weaker opposition and see Rory stuck up front. That was his preferred position and it is said that he runs about a lot so could do the channel work and make space for Boyd to waddle into on occasion and help Harry defenders and the goalie. Either that or someone spilled something on the training pitch floor in the dressing room and LM hasn't noticed so is playing players out of position.
  15. Am I going a bit senile or is there no right back in that team line up? Don't tell me McKenzie or Frizzell is going to be punted back to try their luck in that position when we have a player who is paid to play that position on the bench. Also why not give Say or Cameron a try up front for the majority of the game then bring Boyd on for last twenty minutes when the defence is tired and stuck moving at his pace (or possibly slower though not sure if I have a measurement for such small differences)
