    I agree re: not hard for Rangers to be better compared to previous seasons. But they've came on leaps and bounds on the evidence so far. I'm not sure the physicality of Hearts etc will be too concerning for them. They look to me as if they can move the ball quickly, efficiently and do it with pace going forward....that'll beat physicality more often than not. I think they could potentially challenge Celtic. Strength/depth of squad might be their undoing.

    It's perhaps worth pointing out our 2nd round exit last season. 5-0 at Celtic park against a largely reserve team when not only did Killie not compete, they didn't look as if they could string three passes together. Think a wee bit of recognition is needed.

    We left ourselves in bother today a few times but I think one moment really changed the game. Foderingham makes a great save and then soon after Morelos makes it 2. If we had got back on terms and got to half time it could have been a different story but hey ho. Rangers look better but let's be honest it was hardly going to be hard to better their standard of the last few years. I'll be interested to see how they do against physical teams like Hearts and Motherwell and obviously Celtic

    JJ played well ??? Some pub's takings must've got a big boost pre match if that's what you saw.

    Agree , plus we still have SSC ....many were thinking we would be lucky to keep him n beyond this summer Yes we need couple quality additions but unde Clarke we are in far better position than with those imposters we had as previous managers

    Yeah, ok. I understand there are comings and goings in regard to wages etc. My budget of £0 was meant in a general sense: ie compared to the bigger hitters in the league, like our opponents today......which is what the complainers are comparing us to today.

    Sir Steve's home record since taking over is now: P 20 W 13 D 3 L 4 (this counts the Cup games against Aberdeen and St.Mirren as 'draws' which they were at FT, even though we lost both on pens). We have therefore only lost to Aberdeen, (twice) Hibs, and now Rangers in that period-it is a brilliant record,especially when we look at what went before in the past few years. Also, the only player really missing from last season in today's starting XI was Mulumbu, as there is a fair chance that both S.Boyd and Brophy would have started the game last year. The point being that despite also losing the likes of Greer, Tsihbola, and Erwin the other players were much the same. I do agree with others that when you look at the bench, it does seem to be a bit thin on the ground, hence the need for another midfielder, and probably centre half. Mulumbu is clearly a massive loss, and although Burke, for instance, has started the season well, it was probably the type of game today when we needed a more physical presence in there-McKenzie might have been a good shout if not for injury. As others have said Rangers look almost unrecognizable from their side of the past 2 or 3 years. Despite that the game today turned on some moments, which as Steve said, went for them at the right times, but didn't go for us. It is undoubtedly frustrating to have drawn the OF in the League Cup last two years at an early stage as well. With the players we currently have and the addition of a couple more, we should still be more than a match for sides in the bottom 6. It will certainly be tougher this year than last against the likes of Hearts and Rangers in particular as both have significantly strengthened their squads. Difficult few games coming up certainly but over the season we should still be okay.

    Agree we would all like to see a few new faces in the squad and SC has always stated it would be towards the end of the month before anything is likely to happen. Like everyone I was disappointed today, however rangers compared to last year were far stronger and organised. It's only one game and we had chances, not Armageddon yet IMO.

    One defeat and the knives are out. We need to remember where we were when Sir Steve arrived both on and off the park. I’ve no doubt there will be a couple of new faces before the end of the month to strengthen the squad. There will be better teams than Killie beaten by this vastly improved Rangers side. In fact for once the old firm matches could be competitive. We worked hard, competed and on another day we could of scored another couple of goals. Believe in Sir Steve.

    100% spot on. Our target is 6th place, anything higher would miraculous.

    The omens weren't good for me today. Walked into the kitchen and stood on a dead mouse, crunch. Then went to the bog at the ground, sat down in my seat and my fly zip burst. Apart from that I didn't feel we played that badly although they are definitely more solid than they were last season and we are lacking somebody with the ability to break down a tight defence. Thought the new goalkeeper played well despite the scoreline and Burke put in a power of work. Jones was well marked in every sense and the stoppage for the head injuries came at a time when were in the ascendancy and we never regained it.

    Disappointed to go out. Thought we were in it until 1-3. That third killed us. They put chances on a plate for Morelos and we couldn’t get Boyd in those positions. They also scored at important times. For me we were on top when they took the lead. Just before half time is always a good time to score and the third prevented us laying siege in search of an equaliser. Thought JJ was frustrating. When he faced up out wide and took on the man he created a goal. Too often he left Taylor alone defensively when they normally work well as a unit. Scott Boyd didn’t look comfortable all day. SOD, Power, Burke and Brophy did well imo. Last year with the three in the middle imo we’d have countered their dominance. Today at times we just looked one short and they always had an easy pass. I thought Dicker and Power gave their all but we didn’t have that easy pass. We had to search for a pass. Worth remembering these were the games last year where Mulumbu shone. He lifted us above Rangers and Celtic. We lacked that real quality. Agree with others we need to add something to the group to try and replace it. Losing Greer and Smith isn’t a huge loss as we were without them for so long. Mulumbu, Erwin and Tshibola were key players and stood out in these games. They are a far better team than last year. There are still chinks in the armour though.

    12,000 less 8,000 in the Moffat and Chadwick leaves 4,000, depending on how many infiltrators/ hospitality huns there was. Better than the usual 2,500.

    I think its more frustration than anything else. We have spent years with the " excitement " of many players coming in only for our hopes to be dashed when we see them play. This season it appears that peoples hopes have been dashed already with no real recruitment that would take us forward. Fasten your seat belts guys and gals the next 12 days will be very exciting.

    2 things regarding the opening post. 1. What you need and what you can get are two very different things. 2. Standing still after the last few turbulent years wouldn’t be a disaster by any means.

    SC is culpable. Really need a creative midfielder. Too reliant on something happening from corners and free kicks. JJ is even less interested in being a defender as he is being an attacker. Tavernier had a free reign.
