The Great Big Kilmarnock Thread

We explicitly said we offered Lafferty, Kiltie and Pinnock something, while for Broadfoot it said something like "he is considering his future". A shame about Kiltie going (I think to St Johnstone), and Lafferty was very expected. Pinnock would have done a job, but Broadfoot leaving is good because I think we need a fresh start in terms of the "leaders" of the squad.

What’s Kiltie like? I’d assume he’s coming in to play the Wotherspoon role in our team as we have no back up when he’s unavailable. Neat and tidy on the ball, with a bit of skill and a goal or two in him from what I remember seeing. Sort of guy I’m happy for saints to be linked with, especially since he’s still not that old and a fresh start might kick him on another level.

Very similar to Wotherspoon I'd say. Really talented player, but a bit slow and can sometimes struggle to impose himself on games. Definitely capable at this level though.

Kiltie could be heading down South.... he's put his place up for rent and his Mrs wants to move down there to be closer to her business contacts.... so i've heard anyway.

Seen some links to Bolton floating about on Twitter.

St Mirren have definitely spoken to Kiltie and discussed terms but Bolton and Doncaster are also in for him.....I'd think it's likely St Johnstone will have spoken to him too.

I was always quite impressed with Pinnock actually. Thought he did well in games against us.

I think he'd do well as part of a 3 up top. On the left in a 4-4-2 he left us hopelessly exposed as he's not a big fan of defending.

I’d be very surprised if County aren’t at least kicking the tyres on a couple of those guys.

No loss Kiltie and Pinnock weren’t good enough to be playing week in week out for us. That partnered with horrendous signings and gross mismanagement has resulted in us plummeting for last two years.

Pinnock was dreadful and only started turning up towards the end of the season, was non-existent throughout the other 3/4's of the season

Not too fussed about Kiltie either- was evidently one of the players in that hopeless squad with a decent amount of technical ability but had a tendency to go invisible in 3-4 games for every good game he had, and on that basis is nowhere near consistent enough to build a team around. 

There was no chance Lafferty was going to stick around in the championship, will probably end up at one of Hearts/ St Mirren/ Motherwell, possibly United too.

Broadfoot will probably be playing in the juniors for Darvel or something if he doesn't retire. Bloke is absolutely finished as a professional player

Going from a regular Premiership starter to non league player would be some move.

True. Equally I could see an ayr or a morton go for him with the whole "experienced leader at the back" patter, there's no chance he'll be staying in the Premiership if he keeps playing anyway

Lafferty has come out and said that he wanted to stay and that his agent had contacted Killie with what he’d like. He claims Killie never responded then released a statement to say he was moving on.

Apparently Vigurs is about to do that with Brora.

Would take Vigurs at Killie, Is he from up north ?

Aberdeen but had lived near Dingwall for years I believe.
