Ocular Patdown Required

Round 1 of 2 of the El Plastico Derby- Accies v Killie

Recommended Posts



Get it right up you. Watch all the glory hunters disappear again now that you’re bottom 6 dross like us.
Hunting the glory of a top three finish? Mmm. Know what you mean though. I'm glad we're pish again in a way. I miissed the angina inducing relegation struggle last year. A play off next may against our southern bumpkin cousins would bring on a full scale coronary. Happy days.

Hmmm.

Killie excellent at passing the ball from LB to CB to CM to RB and back. apart from that nothing much.

Hamilton deserved their win.

PS Millar extremely lucky to escape without major damage after Easton's assault.

Top 6. Easy.

Under the cosh for large parts of the game but I didn't feel that Killie threatened our goal too much. Obviously a very different side from the Clarke days (in terms of tactics/attitude anyway) but they'll be nowhere near danger this season. Some quality players in that squad.

Madden is some ref, eh? Some bizarre decisions throughout and I thought Oakley had a stonewall penalty denied. Happy to be proved wrong if footage shows otherwise however.

Good support through from Killie. Just less of the songs about paedophiles and 'black b*****ds' please.

Disagree. It’s mostly the same players who were shite under McCulloch who then played out their skins under a great manager in Clark who’ll now be back to shite under Alessio.

I'd imagine they'll punt that Alessio character soon though if results continue as they have been. Still, you never know.

Like YSYM above, I was expecting the usual raft of Dundee fans commenting and posting hilarious GIFS and images on one of our threads. Still time of course, but I'd thought they'd be here by now...

Sad to have missed this one, sounds like a good win which I fear will be few and far between this season

Forgot to say in my earlier post, I thought Stubbs did really well. Early days of course, but some promising signs.

Ideally we'll bring in another centre half anyway, but we looked much more solid with him in the lineup.

Not many Killie Boys on here.

They must be back in their box already.

Only a few seasons ago Killie brought a few hundred to NDP ok a regular basis. The plastics will be away soon and normality will resume.

That reminded me of a Canning win in 17/18: not very good but had a quality player in attack (was Temps, now Smith) and Gogic's performance was reminiscent of a good Sarris one. 

We were incredibly sloppy in possession (a midfield of Gogic and MacKinnon isn't going to hold the ball) and most of the bursts forward came from Alston or Cunningham latching onto a slack Killie pass. Millar and Taylor were causing McGowan and Smith a lot of issues, but thankfully they never had enough bodies in the box or the quality to find them. Dicker and Power are two of my favourite players in the league, Power especially, however they just don't have a Mulumbu or Stewart ahead of/alongside them anymore who will turn territory into goals or even chances. 

Accies' last-ditch defending was pretty admirable for most of the game and the two CBs and McMann did well. Stubbs had a good debut, although I don't think we'll be asking him to do anymore than defend - he's certainly not a passer like Kilgallon. 

Smith's finish was absolutely delightful and he could've had a couple more in the first half. His passing is better than any of the midfielders. 

With Easton getting sent off so early into the second half (looked like a crazy challenge to me), it was simply backs-to-the-wall, which they did well. The goal was a bit of a shiter and I did think we could've had a penalty before the red. Rice adapted to the red really well and the team didn't give Kilmarnock a sniff. 

I'm not getting too excited; that was third season in a row we've won our second game and we've been shite in all of those campaigns.

Agree with that we were still bang average but killie were horrendous and we would’ve got a third without the red. I think some of the blame lies with McGowan who was not positioned well but Eastons challenge was a pish. Stubbs was better than what we’ve been used to so far, but Smith was fantastic.
