    Smith's development wasn't being hindered by Lyness, was it? Urminsky himself has never played a minute of top flight or equivalent level football, having him as back up is a bit of a punt in itself.  Getting shot of an experienced campaigner like Lyness at this stage just seems to me to be an unnecessary gamble to me. Let's hope Trev's injury doesn't flare up again and none of it matters. 

    Edit to add that Lyness will always be remembered for his man of the match performance in our COVID ravaged teams 0-0 against Ange's Celtic in December. What a performance that was 😍

    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.

    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.

  3. 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.

    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. 

  5. 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. 

  6. 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?
