The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

Recommended Posts

I think top six is gone - especially after the weekend's result - but I'd like to see us statistically safe before the split. That shouldn't be too big an ask, and gives Locke a chance to play around with the selection and tactics with a bit less pressure.

Interesting to see you are as optimistic as I am! On paper we look in a strong position but our games to the split are pretty horrendous.

I had a perception that Killie were doing much better under Locke ( which relatively speaking you are) but I was shocked to see you've only won 4 in your last 20 games.

While I'm here - I'm a football manager fanatic and snapped up Rory Mckenzie on my latest game. After failing to play him and punting him to perms diddies St Mirren he got shit and gave up any hope of playing for Scotland, at which point he turned to his second nation - Trinidad and Tobago??!!

Football manager is generally spot in with this sort of stuff - is this true?!

If so I imagine should his Scotland prospects diminish he will need to seriously consider whether shower time with the T&T boys is something he can deal with!

He did spend time living in Trinidad as a kid 'cos he was a pretty great golfer, and had to choose between football and golf. I'm taking over from craigkillie in doing the FM research for Kilmarnock so will ask him and get back to you.

Don't think Trinidad was anything to do with his golf.

He is a scratch golfer though. Beat me something like 8&7 at Royal Troon couple of years back!

I reckon our already slim chance for top six is away now. I'm alright finishing in the bottom six as I reckon we've a decent chance of finishing tap o' the shite and we'll get some good away days to boot.

Mum or dad in the oil industry maybe?

Decent piece QLP, appreciate you cant go into too much detail on a short article, but yes, i totally agree that MJ failed miserably to build on the success as you say.

There seems to be a bit more of a buzz on Saturdays with kids entertainment and obviously the 3G pitch is helping with loads of kids playing at RP every Saturday morning.

Maybe the new dawn is finally being ushered in albeit at a slower rate of pace than most would prefer.

Jim mann was excellent tonight.

Totally ignored mj during his long and emotional speech.

Somehow some clown thanked MJ for the brilliant job he'd done. Unbelievable. What was worse, some folk, about a dozen clapped.

It looks like we will have a permanent manager appointed in the next 10 or so days.

Some nice words from Mann in that piece - let's hope he means what he says, and can deliver. I'll wait and see...

He was quite emotional in his speech last night.

He's a likeable guy. Unlike the previous incumbent

Still not convinced about Locke, but willing to give him a chance. Hopefully in the summer we can appoint a more experienced guy to work with him or as a Director of Football.
