Any reason why? High winds perhaps? 🙄

 

Probably hosed on the orders of wee Jim with some suspensions or injuries taking their toll.

Hey there just wondering, has anyone got any images of Killie from around 95-97? I'm doing a project about them and was looking to see if I could find something unique!

Thanks in advance

Watching the episode of Quizball! posted earlier introduced me to a famous Fifer I had no knowledge of, and I'd be surprised if many P&Bers under 55 will have either.

Nottingham Forest centre half Bob McKinlay. The club's leading appearance maker, 614 league games in 18 years including an incredible run of 265 consecutive matches.

Unfortunately for him Ian Ure knew more about meteorology though.

Are you looking for general images of the team playing that can be found online via an image search or are you after people's own photographs, as in from family photo albums? Don't want that to come across in a condescending way at all Cam, just looking for clarification as I'm sure I'll be able to look into the old photo albums if it's the latter you're after. Since you asked anyway...

This is from the Scottish Cup semi-final replay against Dundee United at Easter Road. There's more pics at this link here, best of luck with your project.

I mind my mum wouldn't let me go to this because I had school the next morning, so I stayed up nervous as hell until my dad got back in and told me the score. That and hearing paper roses playing out of the ibrox tannoy at the final are 2 of my earliest football memories.

Ayr Fc and Ayr Parkhouse Fc photographed together in 1910, perhaps due to them contesting that years Ayrshire Cup final,. So Ayr United basically!

I hadn't realised that Parkhouse were elected to the league ahead of St Johnstone and lost it to Aberdeen.

This was both teams' final game.   Ayr winning 1-0.  So a bit bittersweet. some of these chaps would no longer be first-team players.

 

Black armbands on some players.  Wonder what that's about.

A very surreal experience, 20 years after my first Killie game, with barely a sniff of silverware in that time. A lot of us felt like Monty at full time...

And at that point we thought we would be playing Celtic in the final...

A perfectly playable Fir Park pitch for Motherwell v Celtic in 1970. A Harry Hood hat trick in a 5-0 Celtic win.

I didn't mind Nobby Stiles, seemed an ordinary bloke by all accounts, none of this "I won the World Cup" which I could imagine some of the rest of them saying. (Mind you, if I'd won the World Cup, I might have let people know about it.)

We won the Midlothian Primary Schools League in 1990 and I still go on about it. We beat Sacred Heart in the final at Whitehill Welfare, coming from 3-1 down late in the game to win 4-3. I scored two goals and had a third chopped off for dangerous play (overhead kick*). In many respects it was the greatest day of my life.

 

Christ only knows what I'd be like if I'd won the World Cup! (Our team would have beaten England easily. One of our players went on to win the league in England**.)

 

Our team were tremendous that year. Besides a 6-0 defeat to Loretto in the cup, match fixing suspected cause, we beat all comers, particularly those pig-dogs from our bitterest enemies at Langlaw. One of their players, who went on to play for Manchester United, cried that day because my friend Alistair metted out a severe lesson around how to be a midfield tough guy.

 

* Was not dangerous. Put a bit of a sour taste on it.

Nobby Stiles who passed away yesterday sadly, pictured with Davie Hay at Hampden in 1971.

What's Hay doing to make Nobby grab his knob?

I remember watching the Final in the Sports Union at Stirling Uni. It was billed as "The Family Final" or some such twee pish 

When Killie went 1-0 up I remember an angry Falkirk fan shouting "Come on Falkirk, f*ck this Family Final shite and get right f*cking stuck into them!!"

Saw Willie Morgan on telly talking about Nobby Stiles, so thought I'd share this.

Standard stuff. Likes lobster, Paul Newman, Ali McGraw and Elvis.

Lovely strip though.

I wonder why he thought he would be a miner if not a footballer.

That's true. I recall coming out of Easter Road thinking the defeat at least spared us of yet another final defeat to Celtic. Was more fuming when Falkirk beat Celtic at Ibrox than I was at the end of our semi-final.
