  1. 'Worst football played by a Killie side in 50 years tonight'?! Help ma boab. The list of 'worst' performances in that time frame (and I have seen the vast majority of them), doesn't come close to tonght...yes it was poor, yes, we didn't try to properly adapt to the wind, by not simply launching the ball particularly in the 2nd half, yes, Arbroath (1 defeat this season btw) were the better side, but.....we did actually defend well on the whole. Clearly we need to be much better in the final middle to front, no question. However, the Championship is going to involve games like that tonight...None of Rangers, Hearts, Hibs or Utd regularly steamrollered teams in the Championship away from home, so overall a return of 4pts away v Partick and Arbroath is not a disaster. We could still really do with another option up front, either from the bench or starting, something 'different' to Shaw, Robinson and Cameron (all 3 of whom are 'fine'), but what if say 2 of them get injured?
  2. Thought Armstrong was excellent throughout, and agree with the MOM comments for him. Good balance with Armstrong on one wing, and F. Murray on the other-who took both his goals well. E.Murray looks like a really solid CH, and puts his head in where others would fear to tread. Alston and Polworth both solid, and Shaw certainly put in a good shift up front. Great to see both youngsters on towards the end as well. Nesbitt was indeed impressive for them, and certainly looked their best player. Overall, a game in which we could have been comfortably out of sight, had Lyons taken one or both of these chances. Good tempo in the 2nd half, and once we had switched to a 4-4-2 with Polworth closer to Shaw, we caused them a lot more problems.
  3. So, if we beat Queens Park, its either Hamilton or Aberdeen B!!! away in the Quarter Final...with the full draw having already been made....ICT look likely to come through our side of the draw to the semis as well. https://spfl.co.uk/admin/filemanager/images/shares/pdfs/SPFL Trust Trophy bracket draw.pdf
  4. Decent addition....possibly brought in to play LB, with Naismith staying on the right.

  6. Could have been worse, could have been better, but it is winnable. As said, let's hope away crowds are back by then.
  7. And now a maximum 9 points needed to have a chance of getting out of the group.
  8. Ultimately England are somewhere in the middle tier of International sides....if you look at the top tier (Germany 7 trophies, Italy 5 trophies, France 4, Spain 3 etc), then you go to the middle ranks in terms of success (Portugal 1, Greece 1, Holland 1, Denmark 1, England 1). The thing that gets me about the media hyperbole, is that England are essentially a last 16/Quarter Final side. In the last 2 tournaments when they have played a big hitter (Belgium twice, and Italy) they lost. (Germany are in the midst of a serious rebuild). When the draw doesnt open up for them, and they aren't at home their usual record is not reaching semi's and finals. Rather....2000---Group stage 2002---Quarters 2004---Quarters. 2006---Quarters 2008---DNQ 2010---Last 16 2012---Quarters 2014--Group Stage 2016--Last 16 (losing to Iceland) 'If' the media approached a tournament with the view that 'we are aiming to make the quarters and see where that takes us from there....fine....try even celebrating getting that far. Rather than the 'we are clear favourites to win this Euros/WC every time.
  9. Episode 9: Away Days 2, with Ian Burnett, is now up on Spotify, Apple, Google and Soundcloud. More chat about following Killie around Scotland and Europe, with some pre-season matches in Ireland in there as well... https://soundcloud.com/rabski777/killie-memorabilia-episode-9-away-days-2
  10. Cue a couple of red cards for Italy as well, just to sure...after another few 'honest mistakes' from the ref.The result of this has already been decided.
  11. For Italy to have any chance would need a very strong ref, as proved tonight. Can't see that happening, so.....
