  1. I went to see Carlisle play Cambridge in March and Coulson played the full game.
  2. The system the board put in place for identifying players post Stubbs, worked fairly successful in such a short space of time, when you look at the January window. I'd like to think leading into the summer window we will be much better prepared to bring in players capable of playing at this level.
  3. You reckon Corbu may be an option now that Hodson is now away? Thought he looked pretty good for all i seen of him. I am not sure how versatile he is right enough. Can he fill more than right-back if required? There will be players announced very soon. It's all about the window opening, players contracts expiring and negotiations in general whilst players are on holiday. I'd like to think we will have some business done within the next few weeks.
  4. I'm sure they had more of a laugh at the Celtic branded club shop.
  5. The full interview is on Buddie Vision. I don't care if anyone thinks we will be ridiculed, I love having a passionate guy like Tony talking the club up.
  6. I love the fact that we have people within the club who set our targets and ambitions high. Whether people think it's 'pie in the sky' or not, there is no point in competing at this level if you don't have ambition to strive to be the best you can. Top 4 may sound ambitious, though this is where the club were at when Tony was playing. People are saying that the crowds and atmosphere in stands are as good as they were back 30+ years ago. Why can't we have a team at least competing top 6? Killie never had a star studded side, though they finished 3rd and their crowds are at their highest in many of years. I believe there are many exciting things going to happen around the club over the next 6-7 years and once we get to where we want to be with that, this should hopefully strengthen us on the park and get us back competing at the right end of the table.
  7. He did actually mention Alex during the full interview.
  8. If that is the case then i think we would be in a better position if the board are willing to spend. Bloody Josh Heaton transfer really has screwed things hasn't it. 50k is a very good investment imo for a player we know who can do a job.
  9. Apart from last May, we rarely know in advance what league we would be playing in the following season. Top of OK's list will be to retain whatever players he worked with the season just passed, that he wants to keep. Whether thats offering out of contract players the chance to stay, or to extend already contracted players on to longer deals. The rest will be happening behind the scenes. I do firmly believe that 2 scenarios would have been drawn up to what types of players we could attract for each level. Most of our squad are now on their holidays. May take a couple of weeks to hear of players re-signing, then comes the new arrivals.
  10. I don't feel too concerned about Livingstons interest. Hods seems to have enjoyed his time with us and has fitted in well to the club environment. If he doesnt have offers down south he may consider, I can see us being pole position to get him if the finances can be worked out of course.
  11. As am i. I am also proud of our youth academy and the players we are bringing through. John McGinn for example was a long-term developed player from an early age, whereas Kyle McAllister came through via Rangers when he was around 15/16. You have to find a market of ready made players that are within your budget for the first team. It's been well documented that up here, clubs struggle to compete with some National League clubs in England. You surely cannot deny the signings in the last window from overseas was a success?
  12. I hardly imaging they are playing for cheap labour unless that was a tongue in cheek comment. We already have the latest batch from the youths in and around the first team (Erhahon, MacPherson, Magennis etc) and plenty of recruitment at that level i am sure will be still ongoing through Allan McManus and his coaches to unearth the next gem. They have to be ready though.
  13. Pretty much confirmed this on his Instagram
  14. First things first, contract extension for the big fella. Secure our goalie and secure our valuation.
  15. I believe it is 3 times that figure. That's what was quoted when he first signed from Romania. It was in Euros, though it converts to around £300k.
  16. With regards to Popescu, his club are looking for a 6 figure sum. Whether that can be negotiated, or we can extend his loan into next season is the question. Would love to keep him.
  17. One thing I think is a huge must, is to get Hladky on a long-term extension beyond his remaining 12months. Best goalkeeper in my 30+ years supporting the club and has won us points on his own.
  18. 150 tickets left as of tonight. Tremendous effort. Would be magnificent to sell those final numbers before kick off.
  19. It seems like their auto generated email system in general is down if it is not sending emails for purchases as well as password resets
  20. When i booked my tickets for Livingston away via their site, it was £24 for 1 adults, £16 for 1 concession, total £43.00. Tickets sent via email for print off. So either £24 is the standard adult price for all games there and the percentage is factored into tickets prior to the booking fees etc.
  21. I am not sure of the whole ins and outs of percentages, though Eventbrite or Ticketmaster may take a bigger percentage of sales, though surely its better than fans dropping off. Money lost through that already even though I still expect a sell-out.
  22. They have also deliberately removed the 'security code/cpatcha' field on the contact form so that you cannot submit your enquiry. Also having issues with password reset. No email sent to my address. Really annoyed. How many times has this company been given a chance? Surely what Livingston and Motherwell have in place with Ticketmaster is the way forward? When you read fans saying they have given up with trying to buy tickets, how many fans realistically are dropping off each week?
  23. To be fair that was his natural position. He was always about running with the ball on the wing, though he has matured into a very mobile central player. It was completely night and day when he came on for Lyons. No disrespect to the latter, though we got the ball moving quicker and more forward.
