    When are we getting the away kits?

    Wonder how commercially viable it would be to change only one kit per year, meaning each kit lasted two seasons? Would obviously be dependent on continuity of manufacturer and sponsor, but I wonder what sales would be like in comparison if it was only one new kit per season, that lasted for two seasons, as opposed to two new ones every year that last just the one season? FWIW, I like the yellow and blue kit too, second from bottom.

    150th Anniversary Mega Thread

    I think common sense will prevail and we will have a dark blue kit for the whole of 2019. I think it will come out just in time for Christmas and it will be sponsor free. It will be in addition to sponsored home and away kits but we may well play in it more often than a “3rd kit”. If we get this right ( correct balance between a contemporary kit and respectful of the tradition and origins of the club) it could be our best selling strip.

    18.3.2012 16.48 For precisely those rare, against the odds, unexpected, heart soaring moments, yes, it’s bloody well worth having Scottish football.

    Next Season's Strip

    Yep. Even if fans had the option of full stripes on the back for replica kits. I like the stripes better than this year’s but I’m not a fan of self coloured or large panels on the back. Full stripes front and back looks much better. I’m guessing they’ll keep the away kit this year and release a 150th anniversary kit for 2019, just in time for Christmas?

    Neil Warnock

    I know it sounds crazy given the monumental effort he’s put in to getting Cardiff promoted, but it did cross my mind that he himself might weigh up his options. As well as having no great track record in the PL he’s never really looked at home there. He’s always given the impression he’s far more comfortable with the rather more earthy delights outside the bloated top league. He might still fancy one more crack at the PL though. Or PL wages/pay off. However if he can, in all likelihood, see what’s inevitably coming by mid September/October, and is looking instead for yet another club to get by the scruff off the neck and turn them around, then Sunderland could do worse. In fact, they frequently have.

    Commercial "Manager" (sic)

    Sorry, I don’t subscribe to this view at all. We have the best manager we have had in a generation ( and with arguably the best credentials of any manager we’ve had in living memory.) The records and sequences we recorded this season have surpassed all expectations and hark back to Killie teams of bygone eras. No one can beat our six consecutive wins in the league this season and only one other team can even match it. We have seen a stunning turnaround in a season and some performances and results we could scarcely believe had we not witnessed them ourselves. We have seen some tactical masterclasses from Steve Clarke, outthinking most other managers in the league and, unlike Killie teams of recent seasons, producing stirring comebacks when all seemed lost. ( Think the tactical switch and 10 man fight back against Dundee pretty much summed up all of what was new and exhilarating with Killie this season). I honestly can’t think that should the last 5 games not go our way, it would be enough of a reason to diminish the achievements of the entire season. Nor should it cause a single Killie fan to reappraise their intention to endorse this remarkable revival with the purchase of a season ticket. Other factors may well be at play, but I doubt anyone will be dissuaded, purely on the basis of not having done as well over the final five games ( if indeed that turns out to be the case).

    Phone number not connected and restaurant all shut up. Anyone any gen? Always seemed fairly busy and have never been disappointed with any meal ( or service ). Would be a real pity if it’s gone too.

    Youssouf Mulumbu

    Thanks for this Killiebythesea. Very well put. When I was reading it, I was welling up a bit ( again!) but it really did make me smile too. A lot of those sentiments you expressed resonated and from the way you described your dad, I think him and mine would have got on famously!

    Youssouf Mulumbu

    Thank you, Shug, for your kind words. That you took the time to do so whilst still grieving yourself demonstrates a real generosity of spirit. My condolences to you too.

    Youssouf Mulumbu

    I know this is mentioned on the Hearts thread, but if I can beg your indulgence for a few moments I'm sure you'll understand why I have extricated the sub topic. I was shown the tweet from a supporter who was a bit critical of Mulumbu's performance in that game and that it had irked him so much he felt provoked into a fairly tetchy response, citing the negativity of the original tweet. Not that Youssouf needs any defence from us, but perhaps I can redress the balance a bit, and reinforce a more positive perception of Killie fans. It was my dad's birthday on 9th December and I offered to treat him to lunch and take him to the game. A lifelong Killie fan (he achieved the 'holy grail' of being at Tynecastle in 65, Ibrox in 97 and Hampden in 2012) he had latterly attended fewer and fewer games. Sometimes this was due to finding other things to do on a Saturday, or sometimes it was the weather, but mostly, really, it was the unremitting awfulness of it. He would bemoan the standard of football on display and the absence of even one player with any genuine star quality. He accepted my offer, though if truth be told I think he was looking forward more to his lunch than the match. ( Cafe da Vinci, since you asked). As I am sure you are all acutely aware, Killie thrashed Thistle 5-1 and making his debut that day was Youssouf Mulumbu. My dad loved it! He came away raving about Killie and about Mulumbu in particular. It was a brilliant birthday for him, topped off with a cheeky wee half time dedication, for which he was duly teased later on by his pals who were in other parts of the stadium. Although my dad didn't go to OF games ( he hated the bile that emanated from both) he started attending, and enjoying, the home games again. On Saturday by the end of the Hibs match, he was absolutely enthralled. He said it was the best game he'd been at in years and it was the most enthused I'd seen him at a football match, probably since that wonderful day at Hampden in 2012. My dad died very suddenly on Wednesday. It would be easy in my emotional state to embellish or get carried away, but without any exaggeration I can honestly say that one of the very last things my dad said to me, as we left Rugby Park on Saturday still beaming from a thrilling game and a stirring Killie performance was " That Youssouf Mulumbu is worth the admission money alone" This hasn't been an easy write. If truth be told I was hoping it may have been a bit cathartic for me. It hasn't really. I'm broken-hearted just now. But Youssouf, if you're feeling a bit unloved, or under appreciated, then know this; You made such an impact on my dad in such a short space of time. You, your team mates and Steve Clarke got his Killie mojo back. But mainly you.

    Let’s be having you

    Yeah, it’s late. And yeah, I’m a bit pissed. I might regret this in the cold light of day....... It’s a great time to be a Killie fan. But holy s**t, what do we have to do to get a decent crowd? We have the best manager in the league. The best player in the league. One of the greatest top flight goal scorers of all time, still scoring goals for us. And yet we can’t muster 4000 home fans for a cup tie with a quarter final place up for grabs. What do folk want? I’m not interested in any comparison with Partick, Motherwell or St Johnstone etc. We are Killie. We have Steve Clarke. We have Mulumbu. We beat Rangers. We beat Celtic. We win 6 home games in a row. These are real “I was there” moments. And yet we aren’t. Well, not as many as we should be. Am I being unreasonable?
