Walking Down The Halbeath Road


Recommended Posts

Kai Kennedy should be nowhere near this club after that performance today. A wee prima donna that thinks he is better than what he is. Tom Daley would have won gold if he copied that technique today. Little waster.

He just doesn’t seem to care. Looks so disinterested.

Many have said it, as I have, and it was underlined again today. Kai Kennedy is not a player for the bottom half of the championship relegation battle. 

That dive was fuckin embarrassing and worthy alone of getting shipped back West immediately. 

All shit. No pass marks.  
Tbf, other than Timmy Abraham he was our most underwhelming player in our promotion push last season. He had a couple of excellent games but by and large he's anonymous. Was happy enough when he didn't return back to us.

Knee injury for Dom. Seeing a specialist on Monday and could be out for the foreseeable future. Major concern. Relegation a real possibility now.

Just heard this; an absolute disaster for us if he’s out for an extended period. We were struggling even with him running the show most weeks so very worrying.

Few people got a little carried away with 2 wins. Today a reminder we are still in the absolute shit and hoping to scramble enough points together that we avoid the bottom 2 is all we can look to achieve for the rest of the season. 

There is hope tho, not because we are any good, but because there's 4 other sides that are utterly dreadful and 30 points might be enough,  35 nearly certainty,  its a mental season but even tho we all deserve it,  we can't all go down.

Giving him a bit too much credit there tbh.

Haha, aye, perhaps.

Guys like Cardle and Higgy were prone a dive, but they contributed massively to the team (especially the former; a genuine club legend). They also would have tried to play a ball across the area today, unlike Kennedy.

Kennedy seems to want to look to dive whenever he gets the ball, whereas Cardle and Higgy would at least try to find a pass/cross/shot before taking a tumble if they felt it necessary (and I was often critical of that).

Genuinely I'm not that bothered about the fact kai(or other players) dive.   Christ without McDougal diving we'd never have the Hardie free kick.  I'd like to see less of it in the game,  but when its accepted by referees and authorities we may as well play the game.  

Its that he does it too often and at completely inappropriate momments that I don't like

Very harsh on MacDougall there. Soft foul, yes, but not a dive.

Exaggerating contact and diving are different. I think as well, some players are good at buying fouls. Kennedy really isn’t, but keeps diving anyway. More often than not, Kennedy’s dives seem to happen when defenders/opponents aren’t even particularly close to him, but he makes it look so dramatic. It’s honestly just pathetic.

As mentioned above as well, if you’re going to try and buy a foul, there’s a time and place. When you’ve beat your man and have teammates waiting for a cutback is not that time or place. It’s just pathetic.

I have criticised the likes of Cardle and Higgy for dives before. But at least they would have tried to do something in that scenario, rather than just jumping in the air and throwing their arms out. There was another point in the first half, when he lost the ball, so went down and curled up into a ball. Hamilton picked it up and charged forward. Kennedy stayed on the ground until his teammates bailed him out and we got the ball, when he got up and ran about again. Truly pathetic. The guy doesn’t care and isn’t up for the fight/battle that we find ourselves in.

He dragged his back leg and took an exaggerated tumble.  Dive for me.

IMO a dive is whenever a player goes down when they could have stayed on their feet.

He’ll be on a fair wage I’d reckon. Get him punted back to Sevco in January and use that money for someone that’ll play for the jersey.

Yeah, McGlynn mentioned at the start of the season that Kennedy had been a very, very expensive loan for us. I’d imagine you would have the wages saved for a really good player at this level by sending him back.

Yeah Kennedy had a couple of games for  us where he was pretty much unplayable. He’s clearly got ability and bags of potential. He was almost most useful for us as a decoy, in that teams would double up on him and allow our other attackers more space. However he’s cursed with that all too familiar Rangers youth player “Billy big time” attitude.
