    kevo_smfc got a reaction from BuddieinEK in Could Coronavirus Kill Our 42 Clubs   
    Worst affected in what terms? Financially because they are paying players £££ daft money, spunked £2-3m on a champions league pyro display a couple of seasons ago, spending reportedly 250k on a trip to Dubai, the list goes on. They thought they were going to walk the league this season now they are crying wolf.

    There's not a lot of options for him just now though. He's not going to get an English Championship gig yet and English league 1 and league 2 can't actually offer more than us now due to their wage cap. The SPFL is a far better platform than English 3rd or 4th tier now that the equaliser of them offering more money is not an option. 
    A 3 year deal in the middle of a pandemic would be sensible for him. Puts him in shop window and secures us long term.

    If this comes off then it would be a major coup for us IMO. Someone like Brophy is the closest we could get to star name coming to us. Mid 20s and capped by Scotland - we don't have many others like that on our books

    We are showing real and realistic ambition here and it should be applauded

    29 goals in 70 starts for Kilmarnock. The only non OF player in Scotland outwith Brophy with a better record over last 3 seasons is Sam Cosgrove. 
    His scoring record is good. We are never going to be able to attract proven 20 goals a season types, especially current internationals and guys in their early to mid 20s so I'm not sure what you expect in a signing. Brophy ticks a lot of boxes and strengthens out front line without a doubt. 
    A signing that most of us thought would have his pick of clubs outwith the OF and he's picked us. I mean it just goes to show that some fans are impossible to please.

    But we are all sure, that he could’ve and he would’ve if he’d needed to.
    Aren’t we?  
     
    Also... I should have given more credit for Erwin’s header.  
    It showed excellent skill - he was running at pace beyond the line yet glanced it back and right through a slim window of opportunity. Excellent.

    I think we have a squad that is finally starting to click with the changes and additions we have made.

    Doyle-Hayes and Erhahon are keeping other really good players out of the team with their solid defensive and playmaking in the middle of the park.
    Connolly has given us that pace we lacked and has been a complete menace to opposition
    Durmus' return on the other side
    A recognised left-back in Mason
    Taits freedom to bomb forward
    *McGrath's freedom to play behind the striker and cause a goal threat
    Every single player is keeping their place on merit and the dropping of other players has been completely justified with a few just been unlucky to good form.

    We have an even better chance of reaching the final now than we did back in 2013. 

    I am so proud of the team and have to credit Jim for turning this around on a magnificent run, where he could have potentially been on a shaky peg previously. Players now starting to gel has given me hope that we can finish the season strong with the addition of another striker.

    We should have taken youth players to Aberdeen for the away league tie we lost at the death. Was this us just taking the cheapest option so that we did not have to test additional players? That was the game where we had a chance to run down the clock with substitutions but Goodwin decided against it.
    Personally I would rather we had taken a chance with youths against Motherwell and Hamilton than just forfeit the games 3-0.

    That was my thoughts too. I'd imagine from the timing of the Kibble involvement tail end of last year, this is their first involvement with the annual accounts, so it may have been flagged during that process. 
    The club must not trust anyone if they have had to make it public themselves so they can avoid speculation.

    The first half was a walk in the park though Hopkin played a blinder second half. We were in such a comfortable mindset with them sitting back first half, we didn't know how to handle them sitting so high in the second half.  
    There is no point of having so many attackers on at once if we can't even put away one shot on target.

    I do not want JG to go, but I am baffled by his substitutions tonight.

    We should have been out of sight by HT, so why make the changes he did, when he did ?

    Connolly has to start the next game.

    If you put Erwin on, don’t take off the guy who is crossing the ball.

    Need to win well on Saturday to qualify. A draw, even with a win on pens, is unlikely to allow us to progress.

    Ultimately very disappointed.

    Gary I know where you are coming from but the shape of the team last night was the best it has been all season.The point is where do you fit Connolly in the starting lineup.Fraser was great in the middle of the back three McCarthy looked comfy on the right of centre and the full backs were bombing forward.We had good young energy in midfield with Cammy playing just behind the striker.I think we took Utd by surprise and at no time did I feel in danger.No for the moment Jim has given up on outright wingers because of the formation and Connolly will be seen as an impact player along with Kyle.The signs are good we had a strong bench last night and still have Flynn and Durmus to call on.
