  1. Here is a good place to start when discussing COVID deaths. I see far too many people spreading absolute nonsense from papers that push an agenda or the people they follow on twitter. https://ourworldindata.org/mortality-risk-covid These are the sites we were encouraged to look at back in sociology classes. Question everything. Be objective. Not everything that happens is a conspiracy theory or something that needs downplayed. I lost a friend to this who played for years in my football team. Fit as a butchers dog and was 33. I was unable to attend the funeral. So it sticks in m

  3. In what world is that a tantrum? I’ve asked a simple and genuine question and received those daft replies, shouldn’t need to justify why I would like to go and watch the game in a pub but yet I found myself in that position for literally no need whatsoever. Jog on and away find someone else to try slag etc Quite frankly this forum has became a joke in the last short while, people constantly trying to justify being more of a fan than others to the club when in actual fact it makes absolutely no difference as long as we all support the same club and do what we can given our own indiv

  4. Why do folk overreact on here so much after defeats? Kabamba was the best thing since sliced bread last week and now he is s**te. He had a poor game yesterday but that will happen. He has had far more good performances than bad ones for us, which is not bad going considering the level he came from.

  5. I've doubts about Dyer being the right man for the job, but on this point I've found the opposite. I find this forum attracts the most negativity. Plenty fans of the view we are playing well enough and can see the positives. That's the view from the various football podcasts I listen to as well form a variety of people who aren't Killie fans. Not saying it's right or wrong, but this place can attract the most kneejerk stuff for sure. Chat about a relegation fight from some when we are a win away from 5th being a good example. What I find odd in a lot of posts (not the one I've quo

  6. this whole narrative of playing well and being unlucky.... if you say something enough then people believe it, which has happened with a lot of our fans and also the chairman by look of things. This forum is only a snippet of our support and from all of the lads that go on our bus and never miss a game, i think there is 1, maybe 2 out of 50ish that think Dyer is the right man for the job. All the excuses about the games being too hard, the refs being baddies, the players making mistakes etc.... have been used up now. The next few games need to be won and even then i know many have

  7. No they don't. One player has scored 20 league goals in the last few years. Overall number of goals? Name just a few of the 'plenty of strikers' in Scotland' who have done that. If Brophy was perfect he wouldn't be playing for us. As it is, he's the highest Scots born scorer in the league over the last three years except for James Forrest, and he's only two behind him. That's decent.

  10. I agree, I don't think we can compare the two. Survival of the fittest is nature red in tooth and claw. You can't wilfully invoke it for one group, but not another. It's not wrong to advise vulnerable folk to shield. I totally agree, that is sensible. Some, though, are saying it not for the good of the vulnerable, but because they want life to go back to normal. The implication then is that if these folk don't shield, they'll die and it will have been their own fault. Because we're going back to normal so f**k you. It doesn't effect us, so f**k you.

  11. There is a new version of the forum software that we have to install very soon and it will require us to be down for several hours at least...quite a few hours if I make a total erse of it...and it will probably be hingin' all over the place for a while. I'll wait until after the game tomorrow, so result dependent it could be on Sunday, Monday or even Tuesday, at least you'll know its not just you and won't have to message us to see why you've been banned.

  12. Yep I can afford the £12, would just rather meet up with a mate in a pub and watch it if it’s alright with you? And also if it makes your life any better and puts you at ease, if fans were able to attend then I’d 100% be there paying at the gate like I have done for over 5 years and only missed a few home games each season (the previous 10 years I had a season ticket but work commitments have got in the way) So I hope that all justifies my decision for this weekends game enough for you though? Cheers.

  15. Brilliant. Four players in England's Premier League managed to score 20+ goals last year. Two in the Championship. Kane, Vardy, Ings and Sterling in the EPL. We can't count Sterling as he's a winger, and they're ruled out. Those high scoring lone strikers are ten a penny aren't they? I know - let's see if we can sign Kane or Vardy. Maybe in a swap deal for Brophy. Or if that seems ridiculous, let's stop comparing Brophy with Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy. That would be the sensible thing to do.

  18. Tell me what my "argument" is? That this virus is deadlier than some are stating and opening the gates to Rugby Park or any other stadium in Scotland is a bad idea due to the thousands of folk who could be infected? I never said I agree with all restrictions. The economy needs to move forward or unemployment, homelessness, suicides etc will increase. This topic is about test events to allow folk back into stadiums. I miss the football as much as anyone and I'm climbing the walls to be back, but the reality is, 60,000 folk in Parkhead is enough to put the full of the country back into a

  20. Paul Dalglish, Gary Tallon, Alan McInally - were just s**te and punted there after. Surely meh status has to go to someone that played week in, week out, but was so overwhelmingly average/boring that just seeing them in person made you put your head down and walk on instead of giving an "Awright"/nod of acknowledgement. My nominations for a truly "meh" player who unbelievably got loads of games are the following; Ryan Pierce played 80 f**king games over 7 years - surely a case of method acting going too far considering his career as a TV footballing actor thereafter.

  22. SPFL set the standard by making St Mirren play with no senior keepers available. Accies without three players shouldn’t be an issue. The only annoying thing is these two clubs being punished for what at the moment seems to be innocent acts while Aberdeen and Celtic get away with blatant rule breaks

  29. "We've got Jimmy, Jimmy Cook...on the podcast...on the podcast" Series 3 launches with a 60s fans' favourite! Jimmy gives an insight into the 1972 Scottish Cup semi final, the late 60s as an attacking player (just who were the 'hired assassins'?), the personal highs and lows, and his enduring affection for the club. He also talks about the bonus affair which rocked the club and his career after football. Interview out on Monday on all podcast channels.

  34. Regarding the management position.....I would also add Gary Holt to the no list. He hasn't done anything spectacular and doesn't merit the job just because he has a killie tattoo (before folk say he's killie through and through and all that). It would be interesting if the position arose that we required another manager would Poyet be approached and sounded out. Just watched the Aberdeen goal aswell, it certainly appears that the Pittodrie pitch, in particular the bit where Dicker was tracking back, is ankle deep in treacle. That would certainly explain the lack of speed!

  37. Celtic are miles ahead of Rangers, who are miles ahead of Aberdeen, who are slightly ahead of Hibs, although it’s early in the season. 9 of 12 teams could easily go down. Waiting to play the “easier” teams and assuming well pick up points cause we did “well” at Santiago Pittodrie will see us adrift by December. Alex seems to think the fans loved to see Kiltie playing left, right and through the middle today. Totally oblivious to the fact that fans love to see goals and points. Best case scenario we go on a run now.. realistically we’re looking at an 8/9th place finish. We’ve seen rece

  38. Interesting comparing the comments on here with the Aberdeen commentators and the BBC for a bit of balance. BBC says we were a threat for most of the game and Aberdeen commentators said we were the better side for chunks of the game. Not at all meaning "actually we were brilliant" - we weren't, but that was fine/a bit disappointing and actually a little better than the zero shots on target under Clarke. They are a very good side in this league. Maybe too optimistic, but we created plenty and looked good v St Johnstone and Dundee United and I suspect we will again in the next two ga

Third being retested under Test and Protect protocols. (BBC) Looks like they've set a precedence of no call offs (unless your Aberdeen or Celtic obviously)....

  44. Right, maybe. Not trying to be sly. As you say I’m open about my feelings on brophys performances for a long time now. I want him to score a barrel load - I’m really not one of those folks that would rather be right even at expense of results/performance - but I’ve never seen a player performing so poorly over such an extended period maintaining such support with the fans. I’ve seen better performers crucified for much less. It’s fascinating for me. Is it because he’s had a few “big moments” which dominate folks thinking? He’s not great in the air, not showing great hold up or link play. He’s

  46. I haven't read the rest of the thread yet, but we could have seen this trend emerging. Pre-season, in all the interviews I saw or read, Dyer said things like "our first priority is to avoid relegation". No... No! A year after our two most successful top flight seasons, our priority should not be to avoid relegation! Now we're just seeing a continuation of that mindset in post-match interviews... It's demoralising for fans to hear we have no ambition beyond a relegation fight, but if the players are going into games think that's what we're playing for then that's where we're he

  47. I don’t get that either. We seem to be very accepting in defeat now just because we played well in the games. It’s a results driven game. You don’t get bonus points at the end of the season because you played well. We need to start putting points on the board ASAP. Starting with a win over Accies. If that doesn’t happen Dyers sacking should be the headline on Saturdays 6 o'clock news.
