An absolutely embarrassing summer for us.

Those deadline day signings are fucking woeful.

Surely to god, there is a free agent out there somewhere.......

The board have well and truly fucked it this window.
The sooner we get a competent chief executive in the better.

Is it much different from your usual summer? Main difference this year is Europe, which came before you were ready, but you've looked reasonably solid since then and the signings, Sow apart,  look decent enough on paper. If the boy St Clair turns out decent (and theres no reason he won't - if Chelsea had their way he'd still be there) then Sow won't be playing very much anyway - cos he's not replacing Brophy. Your loanees are still coming from a good level, you've just swapped a majority of them coming from England for majority of them coming from Italy. I'd also suggest your manager isn't a clueless dick, so I'm pretty sure he knows exactly when and how he'll use Sow before he signed him. Probably against thugs like Berra.

Losing Clarke was always going to mean a step back, it'd have been the same for any club he managed, he's simply that good at what he does. If that step back means you finish 5th instead of 3rd can you really consider it failure for a board that, before Clarke, was running a club constantly tipped for relegation?

If Alessio can get this squad to finish as high as 5th he'll get my vote for manager of the season.

The term turn a pigs ear into a silk purse is very apt in this signing. Angelo coaching credentials will be will be tested turning Sow into a top striker. Prove everyone wrong boss.

Not even sure you need the word 'top' there.

I honestly take no pleasure in this clusterfuck of a few months for Killie. I just don’t understand how you can lose about 8 players at the end of the season, another 3 on transfer deadline day and replace them with guff! 

Brophy, Cameron and Sow as strikers and you let Kiltie go on loan? Madness

a positive thing at least is you can still get Dorrans and Mulumbo but you better announce them very soon to at least bring a positive feeling back a bit

Whatever happened to the two celtic boys coming the other way?

Rumour has it they didn't want to come. Neither of them are that young now and need serious game time but Im guessing would rather wind their contracts down and still be seen as Celtic ‘players’ than be potentially found out sooner.

Heard that Freddie Frans, released by Dundee Utd, is heading to Killie. Was very good at Thistle, not too sure what he's like now but wasn't getting a game once Reynolds and Connolly joined.

I would be worried if Connolly was deemed to be better than him.

Dont think either are up to much anyway.

Would struggle to disagree with you. I never rated Hendry, he was a panic buy and his cv was pretty crap when we signed him where basically he had been basically punted about the english lower leagues on loans, perhaps would have been handy though with Broadfoot away.  Calvin Miller is a few years younger but needs to learn to adapt to the senior game and wont be doing that with development games.  I don't fancy him as a left back but his versatility may have been helpful enough if you don't have too big a squad.

We're fine for defenders, it is a playmaker we require. Unfortunately, they don't grow on trees.
