  1. What was the queens penalty given for ? Couldn’t really see from our angle and assumed was blocked by a hand.
  2. I don’t think it’s Afolabi, I didn’t recognise this guy at all and looked a bit like the boy pictured a couple of pages back. The trialist tonight was played upfront and not midfield though so maybe not the same guy. 10 year deal for Lewis Gibson please .
  3. So majority of those chances were after the first 20/30 I mentioned, yes we were shit but my point was they definitely weren’t much better than us if anything.
  4. One was a free shot from 18 yards with nobody really putting him under pressure, we had the Duffy mix up where only luck got them out unscathed. Robertson also had a shot charged down from about 11/12 yards when in acres of space. I didn’t claim we were all over them but I thought we shaded the game very slightly and didn’t deserve to be 2-0 down on the balance of play.
  5. Said to my mates in the ground (home end) that there really wasn’t that much between the two teams. All around us waxing lyrical about the players and manager was a bit baffling as we probably shaded the chances and game in the first 20-30 minutes and found ourselves two down. Two poor teams is the reality of it but Ireland were clinical and by the end probably deserved the win.
  6. In the same boat, nothing on Hesgoal tonight.
  7. Good luck, he showed some flashes of a player being in there somewhere but wasn’t given enough of a chance and mostly when he did he was poor. League 2 maybe closer to his level, who knows we might resign him when we get there.
  8. What’s Calum Antell up to these days ? Actually scrap that idea.
  9. Collum came to speak to Bullen and said it’s in a nothing area and the ball was flying five yards out the park and he didn’t attempt to handball it to take any advantage although it was a strange thing to do from Gibson. I couldn’t see from my side but did we have a decent handball shout in the area near the end of the half ? Collum managed to miss a clear shirt pull then the player let go just as Junior went down.
  10. I wasn’t blaming him I was just curious as it didn’t even look that powerful a shot.
  11. Hard to blame East in any way but I would like to see If Rae was going to get to the ball from the shot. Heartbreaking way to go down but it has been coming and we didn’t deserve to stay up.
  12. Looked a bit more than that to me especially from one angle. Shaw knows exactly what he is doing a little nudge/ push is fine but that’s a two handed shove and he doesn’t get his head on it without it.
  13. Didn’t notice it in normal time but equaliser looks like should have been ruled out, shaw shoves Hamilton down before he heads it on goal. Looked a penalty at the end either but think Killie deserved the win over the 90 mins. Arbroath didn’t turn up second half at all.
  14. Maybe he has got lucky but I think Beaton has got that decision for the goal spot on, from the other angle looked a foul but from the Arbroath end he takes a step before throwing himself down.
  15. Killie fans howling for that pass back and still booing 30 seconds later
  16. Trying to claim Colin Steven is anything other than a complete buffoon is not going to stick I am afraid. The worst referee I have seen at Palmerston by a distance which isn’t easy considering the amount of incompetent officials we get at this level.
  17. The second one was a definite yellow, the one in the first half from behind the goal looked like Willie clearly got the ball but maybe had to come through the man to do so ? From our angle it looked a great challenge and probably was a few years ago.
  18. So this pitch hasn’t been altered but the old one was ? I’m assuming there was never such a gap between stand and touch line when it was a grass pitch ? So over the years Kilmarnock have shortened/ narrowed the dimensions of their pitch ?
  19. Has it aye ? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3724897/amp/Kilmarnock-shrink-pitch-size-tactical-reasons-manager-Lee-Clark-looks-arrest-poor-start-season.html
  20. First off I have absolutely zero idea what made Willie think playing Niyah Joseph in centre midfield was ever going to be a good idea. First thirty minutes we couldn’t string two passes together and the ball was just coming back as quick as we could clear it. Apart from Roys shot that was well saved we did nothing of note, Rae kept the score down although he didn’t really pull off any saves I wouldn’t have expected from him. Second half it was like a different team had appeared, instead of sitting in we got the game by the scruff of the neck and pressed a bit higher up the pitch. In turn that brought a few mistakes from the Killie defence and keeper with their passing. Will need to see the highlights to see how close Johnstons chance was at 1-1, looked a great opportunity but from high up behind the goals was difficult to tell how close he came, should have been working the keeper. People mentioning a foul on Todd just before the winner, I thought he had ran out of ideas and was praying someone was going to bring him down before just falling down, surprised he wasn’t booked for diving. Then again the referee missed possibly the clearest yellow card I have ever seen when Todd skipped past McGinn breaking in to space in the opposition half and McGinn just pulled his shirt. I don’t think Killie could have had any real complaints had we held on for a point, they were pretty dreadful in the second half and we had them on the ropes for a 15/20 minute spell where one or two chances fell to the wrong men.
  21. The defending is dreadful in the lead up but it’s an extremely tame header that he should be either catching or being able to divert away from danger.
  22. As much as I like Josh Rae and it’s harsh to criticise after how many times he has saved us lately, but what is he doing for that goal ? That’s a howler.
  23. He spent the whole first half last Saturday saying Greenock instead of Morton or Greenock Morton every time. He is a massive downgrade on Finlay Jack but fair play for stepping up when a volunteer was required.
