Excuse my ignorance but who is Tom Black @ 25/1 and what are his qualifications ?

Jerome Varielle is probably preparing his application as we speak.

Tom Black came to my primary school to give the football team an hour of his time once. 

I'm now two years older than he was then, and I don't honestly know how that's possible. 

How often were you kept back a year ?

Six times.  Meant I was a match-winning physical presence at centre-forward, goose-stepping over the mangled bodies of my 9 year old opponents, before bellowing sexually menacing swearwords they didn't understand into their crumpled faces as a coup-de-gras.

Ah, the beautiful game.

What's the history behind Clarke/Dyer?
Clarke was Zolas assistant at West Ham.
Dyer was the reserve team coach.

Quite like the idea of Rowet, Clement or or Moore. As much as I love Holt I am unsure, think this season we will see how good a manager he is with rebuilding the squad. As for any of McCoist, McCann, Lee Clark, Hughes, or any of the traditional merchants of the spfl managerial merry-go-round they can go f**k themselves. Wouldn't be against Tommy Wright or Neil Lennon, although suspect Lennon would have a shelf life of around 2 season before he implodes.

This isnt the first time I've seen a Kilmarnock fan mention Wright. I assume, unlike when deluded Dundee fans mentioned him, Killie fans are just trying to troll.

Hopefully.  I think we can do a lot better.

Tommy Wright's a great manager.  However, I'd be concerned that were he ever to leave McDiarmid Park it'd be like if the ravens left the Tower of London and the kingdom would fall.

Frizzell has signed a new 1 year contract....

Didn't see that coming tbh, hopefully he can stay injury/tonsillitis free and make the most of it.

I'm just surprised his brother hasn't tweeted his congratulations, thought that was kinda his thing...

Quite surprised about Frizzell staying for another season. I have been a fan of his for a while, but any time he seems to kick on or show some sort of form, he either gets injured or better players seem to also be in some sort of form and keep him out. Hopefully, much like what McKenzie has shown in the last couple of months, he can get his Killie career back going.

Think Adam is one of those players who will be on relatively low wages & the club will be happy to speculate on him getting it all together & realising his undoubted potential & talent. It will be make or break for him next season.

His brother is probably too busy enjoying some staunch chat with JJ.

The club can provide the following update on the futures of several Reserve Team players.

Promising young goalkeeper Curtis Lyle has signed a new two-year contract at Rugby Park after impressing for Andy Millen’s team this season.

Luke Barlow, Ewan McLevy and Oliver McDonald have also extended their contracts until May 2020.

We can also announce that Daniel Higgins, Daniel Scally and Ross Miller will leave the club following the expiration of their contracts.

Everyone at Kilmarnock FC would like to thank all the players for their effort and commitment and we wish them all the very best for the future.

IAN McCALL has made a cheeky bid to lure Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd to arch rivals Ayr United.
The 35-year-old striker has hinted he could be prepared to leave Rugby Park for regular first team football after a lack of games last season. And that had alerted McCall who is searching for a replacement for Lawrence Shankland, who is leaving after scoring 63 goals in two seasons.

But the move to tempt Boyd, who lives in Ayr, looks unlikely to get off the ground.

Somerset boss McCall revealed: “I phoned Boyd as I thought he would be ideal for our young kids.

“But the first thing he said was: are you trying to get both of us killed?”

Boyd is taking some time before making a decision over next season
Boyd is out of contract at Killie in the summer but the club have told him they want him to stick around next season.

But in his SunSport column this morning, the veteran hitman admitted he’s going to take some time to think things over before making a decision on his future.

He said: “Part of me thinks it is time to hang up my boots and retire.

“But another part of me wants to keep playing as long as I possibly can.

“Truth be told, I’m still not sure what I want to do next season, so I’m going to take some time to think things through with a clear mind.

“Kilmarnock have said they want me to stay another season. I have also had other managers on the phone for a few weeks now.

“Then there’s my TV and media work, along with my Foundation and youth academy which means a great deal to me.

“There’s a lot for me to think about and I don’t want to rush into anything. But decision time is coming.

McCall hopes Celtic will loan back keeper Ross Doohan for a second season after the youngster was a huge hit with 20 clean sheets, only one short of the Ayr club record.

And he is desperate to keep star midfielder Robbie Crawford despite offers from two Premier League teams and one English club.
