  1. Kilwinning Rangers 18/19

    All of the infighting is doing the club no good. Everybody has the best interests of the club at heart, the issue is agreeing on what those interests are. Colin Evans is big loss to the club, he brought in a lot of sponsorship income. Colin Boyd has put a lot of time and money into the club and, if anything, has shown a level of ambition that has been too big for the club to sustain. All of this is having a big impact upon the players too, that was evident on Saturday. Who knows where we go from here? There will be others waiting in the wings, but the Buffs always seem to be in turmoil.

    Just heard of the resignation. If true, that's a real loss to the club. As you say, responsible for the large number of advert boards around the park. I hope he reconsiders, but if it's causing him grief, then who can blame him for resigning. The should we stay or should we go stuff is causing uneccessary in fighting at our club at a time when the club needs some unity.

    142 is a really poor attendance, I estimated about 200 on the day, but poor regardless. We had more at district league games. Answers on a postcard, what's the solution .... ...

    Honestly don't know. I think it's a combination of factors, most mentioned above, that are keeping people away. It's been noticeable the drop in numbers this season. Would any move to the sports club provide a bigger home support?

    I think this is a tremendous idea, but requires money. Crowds at most junior clubs are deteriorating so something needs to be done to generate an interest again. The should we stay or should we go stuff at the start of the season didn't help much.

    Aye that is possible. As a long term ST holder at RP until 2012, I am very tempted by the positivity coming out of Kilmarnock these days. Would love to do AP and RP ....

    Our home support contrasts to our away support which is holding up pretty well. Opposing club treasurers always happy when Buffs are visiting.

    Does seem to be a few familiar faces missing. The football isnt as good this season and we aren't challenging at the top and unlikely to be involved in the relegation battle, so little to play for. Even the cup ties have been poorly attended. Won't be much money about to spend on players, we have a small playing squad with unfilled spaces on the bench being the norm. Despite this, probably the first season in years where we have firmly established ourselves in the top league again.

    That's interesting, would he be back if the squad wasn't so thin? Playerpower? For me Joe is a very good player when he screws the nut and keeps his mouth shut. If everybody has moved on from past indiscretions, I welcome him back. Unfortunately, I'll be watching from afar today, good luck to my club today and hopefully progress to the next round. COYB

    This comment is bang on the money. We are playing without a midfield. Players playing out of position just to cobble together a team. Formation changes multiple times during a game. Attitudes in general are very poor. Buffs in a tough place at the moment. A couple of midfield reinforcements will get us back on track, but not easy getting players in at this stage of the season and probably little money to play with either. Crowds are noticeably smaller this season too.

    Buffs were dreadful. Something not right at Abbey Park. Squad is threadbare too. Some really poor attitudes on display.

    Signed off with a typically composed performance on Saturday. He will be sorely missed by the Buffs. Good luck Liam. Buffs have lost a whole midfield now with Hanvey and Frye gone at the start of the season. With Fleming struggling with injury, we definitely need some strengthening in midfield and with only 3 on the bench on Saturday some squad numbers in general. Seems a strange decision letting Whyte go to Dalry on loan. Hopefully Chris can do a bit of business before the weekend.
  13. Today's scores 3rd nov

    Buffs deserved the win, a great team performance today. Hurlford will be there or thereabouts and in Taz and Ryan Caddis they have two of the most entertaining players in the junior game, just a pity Taz takes a dive. Hopefully, this'll kickstart Buffs season, Talbot up next in the West COYB.

    Great comeback today, got the luck that has largely deserted us this season. Starting line up was bizarre though, Fleming through the middle?

    Monti's going off the boil because he's getting older? Aye, okay ....
