The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

In all seriousness, is Dyer an option?

I would believe that he is and personally I would be ok with that although not delighted.  Purely down to the fact he would be a first-time manager and the goodwill built up by anyone at a football club (or company if thats your mindset) can quickly be forgotten when times get bad.  Its worth remembering that some Kilmarnock fans were doubting SSC transfer policy last summer when we started off with that penalty defeat to St Mirren.  Not many but there were a few.  If Dyer takes over and its a dire (see what I did there) start to the season people will quickly get on his back.

Personally, and I have no idea if its a possibility or if he has even been mentioned, I would like Gordon Strachan.  Recent comments aside I think he would be absolutely perfect to continue what SSC has started.

I see Neil Lennon's name being mentioned but I think that would completely split the support which is exactly what we don't need right now.  I think Lennon is a reasonable manager but not worth the baggage.  McCoist is a definite no for me.   Gary Holt is of course a Killie diehard and has done ok with Livingston but I don't think he would be the correct choice.  Holt though would certainly ensure the fans stayed behind him though.

Heard that Moyes was offered the job on Friday. He was interested but was hoping to get the Brighton job.

That would be absolutely mental and well above my expectations.  Of course Moyes has had a difficult time of it since taking the Man Utd job but that would still be a sensational appointment.

Will Dyer not follow Clark to Scotland as his assistant as would imagine Clark has insisted on full control and veto over all appointments within the coaching team, not to mention that all McLeish's haddies were punted with him 

The Scotland assistant manager job tends to be a part-time role, so he could still be involved at Killie in some capacity even if Clarke took him to Hampden.

What a season, 0 wins in 4 against us, losing the league by 9 points having dropped 10 against us, no wonder they're fucking obsessed

Now that its all over, SSC league record against the two Glasgow clubs/companies was:

Celtic 1-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 1-0 Celtic

Celtic 0-0 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 2-1 Celtic

Celtic 5-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 0-1 Celtic

Celtic 1-0 Kilmarnock

 Wins  2, losses 3, draws 2.  GF: 5 GA: 9

 

Sevco 1-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 2-1 Sevco

Sevco 0-1 Kilmarnock

Sevco 1-0 Kilmarnock

Sevco 1-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 2-1 Sevco

Sevco 1-1 Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock 2-1 Sevco

Wins 4, losses 1, Draws 3.  GF: 11, GA: 7

6 wins in just over a year and a half against those sides.  If you include the old Rangers then the total time taken for the previous 6  league wins against the Old Firm was:

October 2012 Celtic 0-2 Kilmarnock

February 2012 - Rangers 0-1 Kilmarnock

November 2011 Kilmarnock 1-0 Rangers

January 2010 Kilmarnock 1-0 Celtic

We CANNOT go back to the usual Scottish merry go round of shite managers.  The foundations have been laid.  Time to build on them.

Yes, you need to get someone who doesn't play 'names' but plays teams (code; doesn't shite it against Celtic and Sevco and sees them what for they are) and who won't sign a load of his mates and/or some of the usual dross who bounce around teams.

Got a tear in my eye listening to that again

Me too, great day yesterday, when I was driving up, I had this feeling that we would win.

Who would have thought when we met in Melbourne what the next 20 months would be like?

He hadn't even been appointed at that time as it was the day before McCulloch's last game.

trying to think of any examples of the assistant taking over after a third place finish and it going very well...

Totally agree.  I can only assume its not realistic but happy to be proved wrong.  I'm sure Clarke's comments about Bowie have not gone unnoticed and it could be that a guy like Moyes is looking for, similar to Clarke, a club where he can rebuild his reputation.

Did Moyes not come across like he was looking down his nose at the Scotland job when asked about it?

I can't see him "lowering himself" to managing in the Scottish league, he'd probably rather head to Barnsley.

Unbelievable turnaround, it’s brought the club back together.  I remember listening to McCullochs last game in Melbourne and was starting to think that relegation was a certainty, how wrong I was!

Chris Hughton with the lure of European football? He kept Brighton in the Premiership. Or is he a no no?

Sir Steve must be mighty relieved for the Craig Thompson inspired single victory over Derek McInnes early this season otherwise his inability to get the better of Del would have been a serious blot on his record during his time at Rugby Park ;)

Just an outsider point of view but, Kilmarnock boy who has done an incredible job in less than a season at Livingston, would Gary Holt not be a decent shout for this job?

Not sure of his contract situation with Livi but im sure he'd jump at it if offered.
