Didn't we beat man City 4-2 in a pre season game in the 90s or is my memory playing tricks on me?

I definitely have a programme from games against them and Bolton from the same pre season.

Are you sure? 

We played Bolton on 12 August 1995, four days after Blackburn Rovers. 

The City match was in 1997. I thought that we played Bolton the week before or after but that couldn't have been possible. 

The week before we were in France for pre-season and the week after we were at Pittodrie in the league. 

For the record, Bolton won 2-1 (Paateleinen and de Freitas, Henry for Killie).

You may well be right.

I remember Jason macateer played for Bolton that day.

I've seen many brilliant players at Rugby Park in my 60 years supporting Killie.

The best team I've seen has to be Sigma Olomouc, they'd only 1 full internationalist in their team but we're crammed full of Czech under 21 caps. They destroyed us, their team work, movement, timing of runs was phenomenal. I don't remember them getting caught offside once during the game.

I wonder how much it would have cost to sign the whole side en bloc, we could have won the league!

I’ve seen us get a few hammerings at RP from the old firm and Aberdeen and Dundee Utd especially in the early 80s but I don’t think ive ever seen us get outplayed like we did that night. We barely got a kick at the ball. The Czechs were superb

Have to say I miss the pre season games against English sides. 

The League Cup groups are mince.

I can even remember us playing West Brom at Rugby Park and it was live on Setanta, how often have we had a pre season game shown live. 

Can't have happened often.

A really excellent young team.  Looking at their stats, that matchday squad went on to earn over 150 international caps!

I really think they could have scored any number that night - and it was half decent Killie team as well. 
Marek Heinz is the name I remember. I think he went on to have a decent career

They also beat Aberdeen 8-1 on aggregate in the Europa League, I think it was. Makes our score fairly respectable.

Hit bendy free kicks. Kinda strolled about the pitch. Used the outside of his foot (who did that in Scotland then).

Didn't realise Tomáš Ujfaluši played against us. Excellent defender

They all seemed to look like that, all very tall, very athletic and sticky up hair!

Very much one of Scotland's "cult heroes".

I remember Bobby Williamson's disbelief in his post match interview. "These boys they've got, they're not boys, they're men!" or words to that effect.

I always thought it was the sign of a good opposition when the Killie choir started singing "we're here, cos we love Killie"

That song rips my knitting.

You make a valid point though.
