  1. Kieran Tierney

    It can only be implemented if a player doesn't turn up for international duty. He literally flew out to Kazakhstan with us the last time.
  2. Highlight of the League Season

    Nothing much exciting happened on the park, so I'd have to say either the floodlight failure against Hibs or the fog against Motherwell.
  3. Pyramid 2019/2020

    The structure was changed after 2006/07 explicitly to increase the number of entrants.
  4. Ryan Fraser

    Robertson was a "bit part player" when he joined, and it didn't do him any harm. He barely got a game until the January of his first season, but then seized the opportunity when it arrived.
  5. If I was paying a big salary to Strachan then I'd want him to be the manager, because he's clearly better at that than any of the other names on the list.
  6. Scott Boyd is under contract with us for next season.
  7. Scotland squad face June

    I think it's worth giving a clean slate to everyone under Clarke - the team was a disorganised shambles under McLeish and it would have been difficult for anyone to really stand out in that sort of team. Only a couple of players really came out of the McLeish era with any credit for me, Forrest and Christie, and even Forrest had several poor games in amongst the good ones.
  8. Scotland squad face June

    Crazy to think that there could end up being 4 Killie players in this squad. I don't have the details to hand, but I would be astonished if this has ever happened before.
  9. Scotland squad face June

    Fletcher stunk out the majority of Strachan's reign - let's not pretend he's suddenly the answer to all of our prayers because of one excellent performance against Israel.
  10. Steve Clarke's coaching team

    He was perhaps labelled as a good coach by those "top managers", but was never judged as a manager, which is a completely different job. Several of the signings who were brought in during his time were clearly his type of player - Tziolis had 75 caps for Greece, Martin was a technical midfielder, Struna was an international full-back, Goncalves was his man who he had worked with previously. The idea that he was left with a bunch of useless cloggers to try to mould into a team is complete nonsense. He was so obviously out of his depth as a manager, regardless of the personnel he had available. That Hearts squad which he took over was sitting 4th in the league when he took over and he only won 5 of his 21 league games with them. He may well be a fantastic coach, but he clearly wasn't suited to a manager's job at the time. That's not to say he'll never make it as a manager - he's only 32 now and still has lots of time to develop in terms of man-management and some of the other things which he was clearly lacking during his time at Hearts.
  11. If only it had been "clubs that ended up in administration despite no investment in their ground".
  12. The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

    It's hard to know with defenders now. I like McKenna, but the figures being flung about regarding him were wild. The problem with Findlay is that some English clubs might look at his failure to make it at Newcastle and might be less willing to chuck a big fee our way. Would certainly be hoping for seven figures though (or six if you're Steven Gerrard).
  13. Steve Clarke's coaching team

    This could be Alex Dyer - not the "dimwit" part, because he seems quite switched on, but he definitely has that Londoner cheeky chappie persona which would probably go down pretty well.
  14. Pyramid 2019/2020

    They have more than 2. Even for the top four divisions there's the FA, the EPL and the EFL. Presumably there are several other organisations running the various pyramid leagues, but I don't know enough about them to be sure on that.
  15. The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

    He was on loan at us from Celtic a few years ago and was fairly poor, so it was a bit of a surprise when he got the move to Newcastle in the first place. I don't think he really made it there, but he has been fantastic since he came back here. Suspect he'll be off somewhere before the end of the summer.
