I believe our third keeper is now a 17 year old, Urminsky is 23. I would understand sending him on loan like we did with our third choice goalie last season. With Carson's well documented injury problems it's certainly a gamble, I just wonder why we have taken it.
Kenzie Smith will be 18 in January and extremely highly rated in the academy, in what way is it a gamble?
That he might play in a freak situation where neither Carson or Urminsky is available? I’d look forward to seeing him get a chance. That said it is unlikely as even with Lyness away, we’re quite well stocked in the GK department.
Lyness was a decent enough goalkeeper that done us a turn but it’s all about being able to develop our own.1

2&abit years left on his contract - not a chance!
I wouldn’t be surprised, we’re minted.1

Here is a song you should try at Goodwin's first match
(Left side of Red Shed) We love you Jimbo, we do.
(Right side of Red Shed) We love you Goodwin, we do.
(Both sides of Red Shed) We love you Jimbo, we do.
Oh Jimbo Goodwin we love you.
Thomson and Ferguson are dreadful shouts FFS. Not a chance.
Fully expect Billy Davies, Paul Lambert & Steve Evans to be added to the shite manager tombola.
We need to pull out all stops to get Jack Ross back IMO.1

Goodwillie will be free soon. Seriously I would have Griffiths over many of the duds we have previously signed. Get him motivated and he is a player. Yes he has baggage but as do some of our old strikers such as McAvennie or basher
Bit of a bizarre comparison here between two different styles of midfielders.
FWIW, Erhahon made his debut against Rangers in 2018, a year before McCann leapt onto the scene on loan at Stranraer & Erhahon is also more than a year younger than him. McCann is a decent young player who’s had a good season but certainly not a player with more potential. I think St Johnstone fans are overly excited because they don’t churn out anywhere near the quality of young academy players. I wouldn’t value NI caps as something to brag about either, they are picking players from the likes of Accrington Stanley and Rochdale in recent squads.2
I think the away kit is actually quite smart.0
Decent backup signing if it goes through. Brophy and Dennis will obviously be first picks and both of them could do with a “wrecking ball” strike partner, Brophy in particular.1

Interesting that Goodwin is wanting another player in to ease the injury burden but has to be someone who is ready to go now.
Are we allowed to sign loan players just now? Would be surprised if we found any match fit free agents at this stage of the season, unless it's a termination from another club.0
Good bit of business.6

Thought that was fairly comfortable today. Everyone played well, Erhahon was brilliant. Lyness as well was very assured considering he never plays first team games.
I'd be frustrated as a Kilmarnock fan that a keeper hasn't played in 2 years and they never even tested him but credit goes to our midfield and defence as well.
Apparently hasn't played any competitive football since October 2019 in the reserve team - credit to him willing to sit on the bench 99% of the time and still turn out good performances as and when required.3

Yeah, the left back is definitely in the works. He did mention that he was 'hopeful' of an attacker in his interview but if he only ended up with the LB he'd be happy enough.
Do you think the attacker will be dependent on others leaving? Would be surprised if Erwin is still with us when the deadline passes..0
Sheron officially away back to Fleetwood.2
What a result, not a poor performance in a black and white shirt.
Can we play against Connolly every week?1
That looks like a very decent signing, highly rated by Huddersfield supporters by all accounts.1
Hope JDH will sign the extension but imagine there will be teams looking to take him this month. Have we ever lost a player that quickly (without us punting them due to being shite?). We only managed to hold onto Adam Hammill for a month or two but think he only signed a very short term contract.0
Has anyone managed to get a pre order for the next gen consoles recently? I've decided to move to Xbox after being a Playstation user since Xbox 360. They seem to be sold out everywhere, though. Wonder if there will be more stock on release day.0
After playing through placement matches I've ended up winning the five games and put in division two. This is only because 3/5 placement matches the opponent was chucking own goals. I assume this is to avoid being put in a higher division? I'm now getting smashed in every match. Is there any way around this short of waiting to be put down to my actual level?0

Foley would probably keep a clean sheet.1

He’ll definitely be remembered for the Celtic performance. He was excellent that night.
However, he was generally poor aside from that and had a disappointing spell at Raith Rovers when he had a run of games. Just because Urminsky/Smith haven’t played in our first team doesn’t mean they would be any worse or better than what Lyness would offer. We are yet to see either of them play but realistically, they’re going to be better than Lyness and it’s a much cheaper option too.
It’s a bigger gamble holding onto Lyness IMO as he’s proven himself to be poor at both Premiership and League One level and already behind Urminsky in the pecking order this season.
Shame, as he appears to be a good guy to have about the place but it makes sense to get shot of him at this stage.
