Considering only arrived late yesterday , had not met team mates till today he did OK and a goal no matter how it went on gets him off the mark at new club and something to build on......stronger tests lie ahead but gives us an option

A cult hero type of guy. Will score some crackers and fall over his feet other times. Thought hold up play better than our normal. Decent start I thought.

Dyer talking up his ability to unsettle defenders. That would make a massive difference for us an let Brophy do what he's best at. Promising

If he can make space for others, including Brophy, we are on to a winner.

Who was the last Killie player to score with their arse?

I think Boyd might have in the last couple of seasons.

Just watched his KillieTV interview......

He only arrived last night at 7.30pm and met the boys this morning for the first time. We only made the call to Hartlepool on Thursday & his transfer was done n dusted within 24 hours.

The big man did well...good movement and positioning, bit of pace, and great to get a goal no matter how it goes in. Promising start.

Positives from his miss, a couple of great touches to make the chance.

His build up play to that chance was excellent. Did the ball bobble or did he just fluff his lines

Are we going to gloss over the near open goal he missed?

Even the carpet fitting messiah himself managed this once at RP.

Could put it down to good defending

I think that's being extremely generous.

He was in the box, no goalie, and two defenders on the line. He should score.

However, the guy has had a whirlwind 48 hours or so, and maybe he got a little caught in the headlights so to speak. He scored anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Maybe a miss but surely with two defenders between him and the goal, it simply can't be an open goal?

Plus he made the opportunity with his persistence in going for the ball when he wasn't favourite to get it.

Boyd against Aberdeen was it not?

I had a feeling Boydy might have scored with his derrière in the latter years. 

 

I'm already liking Kabamba. Big, quick, slightly out of control and unpredictable, the opposition don't know what he's going to do next (and possibly neither does he)

Can see him becoming a favourite

Yeah, that's why I said 'near open goal'.

Thanks for listening.

He was contracted to summer 2021

Kabamba’s move north of the border leaves Pools short of options up front, Challinor felt receiving a five figure fee for a forward who was out of contract at the end of the season was a good piece of business for all parties.

When discussing how the deal came about, the United manager explained: “We’ve had calls about Nicke down south since before I arrived here asking questions but he’s been involved here and I didn’t envisage that changing.

“Kilmarnock made an enquiry late on Thursday and nothing came of it because we said no but then they came back with a formal offer.

“Once that happened, it was about making a decision regarding where that offer sat and whether it was something that was acceptable for all parties.

 
“I think from our perspective, we’ve got a player who’s out of contract in a few months and we’ve been able to get a fee for him.

“From Nicke’s perspective, it’s given him the security of another year so I think it’s a good move for everyone.”

Following Kabamba’s sale, Hartlepool travelled to Huish Park with two senior strikers in the squad in Aidan Keena and Niko Muir. And despite Kilmarnock’s interest, Kabamba was keen to play at Huish Park before the deal was formally completed.

Challinor added: “Speaking to Nicke on Friday morning, he wanted to come down and play and and he would have played at but he goes with everyone’s best wishes.”
