  1. Let's be realistic

    We were never going to win every game. No other team in the league has won 6 in a row. Rangers were the only top six team we beat in that run. To have got second we would have needed to win 11 games. It is a bit delusional. Just because we have beaten Rangers and Celtic this year means that we should be beating them. From the response from some is that we should be beating Aberdeen. We were competitive and had we not lost 2 poor goals we had a chance but if we had scored first we could well have won. Aberdeen gave us no space and harried us which made it very difficult. One of those games. Just to clarify though just because we shouldn't expect to beat the top six teams doesn't mean we can't. Think some were wee getting a bit carried away with where we are.
  2. Top 6 is it worth it ?

    You are also playing at as high a level as you can. That's what football is all about. If you stick killie in league 2 you'd probably win each week but what's the point. The likelihood of playing in the top six is that you will not pick up as many points as you would in the bottom six. Hoping that we at least pick up a point or a win in the remaining games but let's not forget this has been an outstanding season.
  3. Wenger, Rogers and managerial merrygoround

    Carlo Ancelotti and Max Allegri are among those who could succeed Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager, but Thomas Tuchel is the favourite. It was confirmed on Friday morning that Wenger would leave Arsenal at the end of the season after 22 years at the helm and a tenure that yielded 10 major trophies. The onus has quickly turned to who will replace the Frenchman, and Ancelotti is the shortest-priced Italian at 6-1 to take over. Allegri can be backed at 8-1, while other Coaches from the peninsula include Antonio Conte (25-1), Claudio Ranieri, Roberto Mancini (33-1) and Maurizio Sarri (both 40-1). Elsewhere, former Arsenal and Milan midfielder Patrick Vieira is 5-1, ex-Napoli boss Rafa Benitez is 16-1, as is Gunners legend and Juventus old boy Thierry Henry, while Luis Enrique – once of Roma – is 20-1. However, the runaway favourite is Tuchel at just 4-1, despite the German being heavily linked with Paris Saint-Germain.
  4. Aberdeen game

    Can we make it 7 in a row. We will lose at some point but would really love to beat mcinnes. Our record against Aberdeen since he took over has been unacceptable. They will have a reaction from last week and will have Shinnie and McLean back. Tough game but again would love a win
  5. Second Place?

    A 7 point gap at this stage or the season with only 15 is quite a stretch no matter how we are playing.
  6. Lee Clark on Steve Clarke and Billy Bowie

    I thought he did OKish for us. Disappointing to end up in the playoffs but you wonder if anyone could have sorted out that Gary Locke side. Did well in the end in the playoff when it mattered. Would have been a disaster if we went down. Second season mental recruitment however he did pull out 2 gems in Coulibaly who we sold for a million and Jones who we could possibly. When he left we were doing OK. Not too far off bottom and technically top six
  7. Lee Clark has nothing but admiration for Steve Clarke. But the Geordie believes Kilmarnock’s main men behind the scenes have been just as big a driving force in his old club’s stunning bid for the Europa League. Clark reckons Rugby Park supremo Billy Bowie and director John Kiltie have elevated the club. Their identification and snaring of Clarke last October has kickstarted a magnificent upturn in fortunes in Ayrshire which now has sights on a charge for the continent. The ex-boss isn’t shocked at that foresight. Having worked for the pair during his own days at Rugby Park, he’s well aware of the ambitions and funding which are provided to give the manager a base to produce his magic. Clark explained: “It was a massive statement for the club when they got Steve to take the job. A really serious coup. That would be down to Billy’s bigger influence in the club. Listen, Billy and John are brilliant fellas. They could not have done any more for me. Top, top guys. “You’d speak to them daily and they backed everything I tried to do on and off the field within reason. There has been changes off the field since I left and Billy is getting a bigger and stronger say with what is happening and it’s showing on the pitch. “The passion and commitment of them and others at the club is incredible and it’s fantastic to see the rewards. “I see QTS have continued their backing. They are great backers and it’s so positive. “Beating Celtic and Rangers regularly. It’s tremendous. “I got to know Steve well during his time as assistant to Ruud Gullit at Newcastle and then I’ve come up against him in the Championship when he was manager of Reading. He’s is a top class manager and gets the best of players. Look at Kris Boyd. He’s turned the clock back 10 years. “It’s great credit to him, his staff and the lads.” Killie’s superb form has now given them a real shot of making Europe. Four points behind fourth-placed Hibs, the Ayrshire side have five games to overcome the deficit and Clark is savouring the resurgence after a the brush with relegation which he averted two seasons ago. He said: “Being top-six was great, now fifth and why can’t they can go higher? “No-one of the top teams is going to fancy playing them with their current form and record and it’s nice the fans and the club will be able to enjoy big games. “We had a horrible situation where the club could have gone down to the Championship, which didn’t bear thinking about. “Look at the time it took Hibs to get back up. Dundee United now. But we got it. “We changed the group and, although the league was very tight, I left in sixth position. Lee Clark enjoyed his time at Rugby Park “It was strange that it was a calendar year. I joined on February 14 and left to join Bury on February 14 the next year. “Bury were second bottom, but stayed in the league. We then tried to put together a squad for a promotion push, but it didn’t happen. It didn’t gel as quickly as we’d hoped. “Even still, we were just two points from 16th when we left. Now they are 10 points adrift at the bottom of the table and were relegated at the weekend. “The first part at Bury was similar to Kilmarnock. Going into the club in a February and keeping them in their league. Clark might now be out of work after that disappointment, but he’s not out of the game. A regular at grounds around the country, his current MO is to watch games, evaluate players, stay on point with tactical plans. All in preparation for his next job. Could it be back in Scotland? Clark doesn’t rule it out as he said: “I’m glad I went to Scotland. It gave me a different thought process. “I’m not someone who is sucked in by the general consensus in England about the standard of Scottish football. “When I went there, it was nothing like that. The young players are coming back and just need guidance. Look from Brendan Rodgers to Steve now, top, top managers are offering that guidance. “I enjoyed the football. There’s an honesty about it on the pitch and in the stands and there is lots of talent.” Wherever he goes in the future, though, there will always be a piece of Clark at Killie. He concluded: “I’ve been back to Rugby Park. I’ve watched a game. I’ve been to other Premiership games, Championship games. It’s important to stay in touch with players and teams. “But my only memories of Killie are fond. “I hope I made friends for life. Supporters and people behind the scenes. It’s a great club. And I’m delighted they are getting the success they deserve.”

    In a parallel universe, Bob Harris will have been a Killie legend. 800 odd appearances, testimonial, you name it!
  12. Parking Tomorrow

    Is morrisons not a maximum 3 hour stay. Says so on website. Not sure if there is a limit for sainsburys
  13. What if SSC just wants to stay?

    From the sun "So there is a feel-good factor about Kilmarnock. “But I know the downs are there, that they’re around the corner. You can’t get too carried away.” Clarke is honest enough to admit that, at his current rate of managerial rehabilitation, his head could be turned by a big offer. He added: “I’d say that I’m a better manager now than I was in my first job. “Hopefully, there are a few more jobs after this and I will keep on improving. I think there’s probably a time in your career you need to go chasing the money because, first and foremost, it’s a job.
