  1. The Great Killie Goalies Discussion

    I’m torn between the one against Hamilton which got us promoted in 92-93 or the one against Hibs at Easter Rd that kept us up in 1994. Oh, wait. I’ve misread that haven’t I? It’s not the Great Killie Goalless Discussion is it??
  2. Message for Jordon

    Who did you say the ref was? Aw naw. No him. That’s us f***ed then. You know exactly what’s gonnae happen when Stokes goes down in the box under a risky challenge from Michael Nelson in the last minute, right in front of the Celtic fans, with us up 1-0. I mean he’s NEVER gonnae risk upsetting that nice Mr Lennon and deprive his team of their God given right to the treble.....
  3. Except we didn’t play three games that week! However, the point is valid and I thought it was evident against Motherwell ( which was a three game week) when Dicker and Mulumbu got deeper and deeper as the game wore on. That they stuck to their task despite their lack of fitness was to their credit, but it was a game we might just as easily have lost. The positive is that we’ve been on such a good run with some players not entirely match fit. Certainly bodes well, though if SC thought this would be a problem long term, I’m sure he’d address it.

    Indeed. In fact, such an event would be “Happy and Glorious”!
  5. The Killie fans

    Inevitably the Daily Mail sees it differently*** "A shocked Australian tourist was last night recovering from a terrifying encounter in Edinburgh which brought SHAME on Scottish Football, right at a time when the eyes of the world are on Scotland's capital. Now being comforted by friends, a visibly shaken Harley Mitaros told the Mail how, on his first ever visit to Edinburgh, he was strolling up towards the castle on his own when he was suddenly ACCOSTED by a group of unruly Kilmarnock fans. Already startled by their boisterous behaviour and incomprehensible accents, he was then BUNDLED onto a bus, FORCED to consume alcohol, (direct from a CAN) and subsequently MARCHED into the Easter Road ground to watch Kilmarnock take on home side Hibernian. His tormentors even gleefully made up songs about their victim , including references to his nationality. And, in a final humiliation, the sick perpetrators forced the hapless traveller to pose with them for selfies which have now appeared on the dark web. The Mail contacted the club, currently enjoying something of a resurgence thanks to former Rangers player Kris Boyd, former Rangers player Kirk Broadfoot, former Rangers player Chris Burke, former Rangers youth player Greg Taylor and soon-to-be former Rangers player Jordan Jones, for a comment on what action they might be taking on these thugs. The Mail understands the matter is now in the hands of an unnamed local lawyer who has previous associations with the club. A spokesperson told us rather curtly 'Expect due diligence, some fiduciary duty, swiftly followed by a non-disclosure agreement. Happy New Year!' Our enquiries continue " ***For legal reasons killiefc.com is obliged to point out that this might not, in fact, be entirely true.
  6. Loan deals.

    Don’t worry, if Naismith does opt for Sevco over us, I have prepared a statement for the club to issue... “The position of Kilmarnock player requires an ability to win football matches and the mentality to cope with the demanding off-pitch environment that goes with being a Kilmarnock FC player. This is a critical aspect of our assessment of any footballer during our recruitment process. We recently approached Norwich City and requested permission to engage with their player, Mr Naismith, to assess his readiness and willingness to consider joining our club ( and bring his wee dug with him). We were subsequently made aware by Mr Naismith’s statement that, at this stage in his career, it would be best for him to sign for The Rangers Football Club 2012 instead ( as he hasn’t played for them before). We endorse that position because moving to a massive club like Kilmarnock is a big step with concomitant risk. We continue to consider suitable footballers but will only sign someone in whom we have full confidence and who feels he is ready for the job.”

    Hopefully not because he was howlin’....
  8. One of our own

    What about Kris Boyd? He’s very good at keeping his cards close to his chest and at times can be the soul of discretion, but I do wonder which team he supports. Anyone any inkling??
  9. Hibs Vs Killie Match Day Thread

    What last night told us is that we are not a bad team, but that we are still some way off being a good team. Hibs defended better than us and were far more clinical than us in the final third. However, for now anyway, our battles aren’t really with the likes of Hibs. If we play like that against Partick, Accies, Dundee, Saints and County our league position should improve. It was refreshing to hear the encouragement the team got last night, even after individual errors. If we can harness that positive atmosphere, even if results aren’t going our way, I genuinely feel the malaise over the last few seasons can be reversed. Excellent effort last night, and really enjoyed some of our football.
  10. Next Manager Thread

    Great band. Love their 'Lost in the Dream' album. Great songs on it like 'Red Eyes' 'Under the Pressure', 'Suffering', 'Disappearing' , 'In Reverse' as well as the magnificent title track. Hang on, are they Killie fans??
  11. Next Manager Thread

    However impassioned and well constructed a case this is, it still essentially screams "more of the same". I see little logic in binning the guy whose team was struggling badly in 12th place, and replacing him with someone who himself was binned a week earlier because his team was struggling badly in 10th place. It's hardly inspiring. If it's at all feasible, the board should be looking to appoint someone who can galvanise the support in the stands, as well as improve the team on the pitch.
  12. Kris Boyd on Sky

    When he signed for us as a player, every Killie fan knew Tommy Burns' first love was Celtic. That was still the case when he took over as manager. He was proud to play for us and even prouder to manage us. Every time he was interviewed, journalists predictably looked for a Celtic angle. If he answered the question put to him directly, he invariably followed that by saying "I'm a Kilmarnock player/manager now" and changed the line of questioning. He always spoke warmly about the club, the fans and even the community. Although he came to us after a long career with Celtic, his entire focus during his time with us was Killie. Yes, the nature of his departure still rankles, but like many others, I forgave him that, for everything he brought to, and put into, our club. Commitment, focus, professionalism and dignity. None of these attributes could currently be applied to our erstwhile Rangers correspondent. Boyd's descent into parody is as sad as it is inevitable and it's high time the club exerted a little authority. Sitting near the bottom of the league, with our most prominent player ( in name) more discussed for his media persona and 'football' allegiance, than being an existing Kilmarnock player, makes our own club look weak, poorly managed and severely lacking in self respect.

    Yep. Already a Longstaff thread on YNTTK, expressing those very sentiments. And not.
  14. US Open Tennis

    Only mid way through day 5 and we already know there will be first GS final for someone, and from Andy's half of the draw too. Every chance the other half could produce a debut finalist too if Federer and Nadal don't improve on their earlier rounds.
  15. US Open Tennis

    After seeing the frankly underwhelming performances of Nadal and Federer, and the (long since) hotly tipped rising stars such as Zverev and Dimitrov depart early, I wonder if oor Andy might now be suffering premature withdrawal? Reckon a 75% fit Murray might well have gone the distance. The standard hasn't been great so far. In fact you may well say it hasn't exactly been world class.
