  1. Wish TW would let Scott or whoever is talking to him finish the question. He cuts them off with his answer every time!
  2. Please Killie just sign a striker and put us all out of this misery!
  3. I honestly think if we get a half decent striker the whole team will click into place. For this level we’ve a good starting 11 and pretty strong backups. Our attack just looks a bit limp because the guy leading it is too green and poses no threat. I think we would have looked a lot more dangerous on Saturday if Scotty Robinson hadn’t gone off. We’re a good team - just missing the final piece of the jigsaw.
  4. For me this says a lot about TW and how he’s come in and dealt with the situation. Whilst others pandered he’s cleaned house and sounds like he’s put together a squad that will fight to get us back up. Even more confidence we’ve the right man now.
  5. We might be in the position of beggars can’t be choosers but I really hope it’s not just loans. Even if it were a season long loan we’ve seen what can happen there with Greg Stewart. Wouldn’t like the title challenge to be derailed because we lost our striker back to their parent club and had to scrape around to find another.
  6. We should definitely have more youths coming through but it’s not easy nowadays when the cream of the local lads are being hoovered up by the youth systems of the truly elite teams. Look at Liam Smith for example. Matty Kennedy another one. Chelsea already sniffing round Harvey Gilmour allegedly. We’re left with the also rans unfortunately.
  7. Not sure Kennedy is what we need but good to see there might be some more movement in the market. Hopefully a decent Premiership striker is going to shake loose at some point. Might need to wait until nearer the end of the window though.
  8. He signed some dross as well. Bright Enobakhare. Ndjoli. Jack Byrne. Then guys like McAleny and Tish that did ok but hardly set the heather on fire. He actually signed a fair few. 11 in his full season in charge. 5 the season before after he came in.
  9. Alright we’re only two games in but this stuff is starting to look a bit foolish from the Pars 🤣
  10. I really hope we give him a torrid time. He’ll have a point to prove and I hope we can prove him wrong
  11. Days gone by the majority of our games and the Ayrshire derby itself would have been played out in front of folk from Ayrshire sitting in the ground who would, for the most part, understand the context of these lyrics even if they don’t agree with them. Now we’re on TV and the internet getting broadcast to a whole different audience. It’s a completely different world. Is this the image of the club we want projected around the world? Things change. We need to change with them.
  12. Don’t think anyone is disputing that Stewart is a good player or that he would score goals for us. Just that he’d be more suited to playing in behind a striker. So that means Robinson, Polworth or Alston probably needs to drop out and Cameron or Burrell would still need to play as a striker. So he likely doesn’t suit our squad composition.
  13. Boyd scored 23 in all competitions in 2017/18 when we finished 5th. 22 in 2013/14 when we nearly went down.
  14. As good as Greg Stewart was for us he isn’t an out and out no 9. He was always dropping deep to get the ball and carrying it as well as running in channels. If we want someone to lead the line by himself I’m not sure he’s the man. I think he’s well suited to that 10 role we’ve been playing but we’ve already got Alston, Robinson, Polworth and possibly even McKenzie that can play it. Plus then we’d still need to play Cameron or someone else in front of him. My guess would be TW is after more of a conventional striker than Stewart so I suspect we won’t see him back at RP.
  15. What I like about TW is that he has a system he wants to play and went out and got the players that fit that system. Rather than last season when we had a random bunch of players that you then had to shoehorn into some kind of formation. It’s good to have a proper manager again.
  16. There’s an awful lot of empty seats in the sections that have been let in so far
  17. They just let us into the Chadwick. Didn’t check tickets in the end
  18. I’ve got mine, a not particularly great seat in the Chadwick compared to where I sit in the East but I’m not too bothered about that. More concerned about how the club thinks I could be seated 8 seats away from my 4 year old son. He’s not going - I’m not taking him to a night game at that age but that’s a pretty basic faux pas. Hope others don’t have similar issues.
  19. Any actual evidence or just the voice of Jim White in your head?
  20. Mike Jeffrey. Thought he would be amazing when we signed him. He was not.
  21. If this young lad is one of two we’re hoping to sign then that puts a lot of pressure on the shoulders of two 20 year old boys and an as yet unknown. I really hope we’re pushing the boat out for whoever else we’re getting in because it seems a lot to ask of Cameron and a boy that’s played 6 games to get the goals we need for promotion
  22. If we don’t have enough capacity to let all season ticket holders in on Monday then it basically boils down to two options. 1) Straight ballot of all season ticket holders. 2) Priority ballot similar to the League Cup games. Whichever road they go down there is going to be a group of fans that feel they haven’t been fairly treated.
  23. They are probably classed as guests of the club or some other arbitrary designation. Jamie Hamill had talked on the radio about getting tickets for his family being a bit tricky. I’d guess they were in the FB as well.
  24. Been very impressed with his leadership on the pitch. Constantly talking and directing the team. Telling the defence to keep a high line. At a free kick yesterday you could hear him tell everyone to keep their right foot on the line of the 18 yard box to hold the line. He was helping young Innes out as well. Saw him direct him to sides of the pitch for kick outs and telling him to get over the ball when they had a kick out from a corner to let the defenders get back. Think he’s going to be a great captain.
  25. Really don’t think there is anything wrong with the chances we’re creating. Cameron just isn’t anywhere in the vicinity of them. He doesn’t seem to have a strikers instinct. First half today there were multiple quality balls into the box that went begging.
