Kilmarnock v St Mirren League Cup 13/7/18

Recommended Posts

No intention of going despite it being just up the road. It's not even the middle of July FFS ! The LC really has been massively devalued by playing it so early. The format isn't the worst but playing it now is madness. As for the game who knows ? No idea what the team or formation might be and I would settle for avoiding a humping.  The recruitment policy seems like a revolving door at the moment. I hope Stubbs has a plan because at the moment it all seems a bit haphazard and very high risk. Had we been in the position we are right now for a season in the Championship it would be concerning never mind the top flight but lets see how we look to play tonight for starters, we might get a pleasant surprise.

Killie resting players who were with the Scottish team in south America, Boyd out injured. Saints have no idea all I think is we will have new players who want to impress. COYS. 

Phew , maybe just a 3 goal defeat then !

As I've posted elsewhere, let this be the final nail in the coffin of the repetitive and idiotic summer football debate.  There just isn't the interest at this time of year.

You can park in streets around the ground ok. They do not usually have a ticket outlet and you just pay at the turnstile. I'll see you there :)

Cheers mate. It would have been lonely sitting in that big stand all by myself.

Looking forward to seeing the new Saints in action and  embracing the philosophy of the new management team. Everyone knows last season's team  was far short of the standards necessary for Premier League football but  a fair few of the seasoned posters on here are up in arms because Stubbs had taken command cleared out who we all knew weren't good enough for the step up and has brought in a few fresh faces.

Now admittedly we have never heard of most of them but the bottom line is Alan Stubbs has and that's good enough for me..

So stop bleating about things and think positive thoughts like Alan Stubbs is going be be good for the Saints.

Jack Ross is Dead, Long Live Alan Stubbs.

That's how it should work (till the next manager comes along)

It's a bawhair closer to me than New Love St and I will be going tonight if nothing else than to get an impression of the new guys. Last season we won the League at a canter with a highly motivated squad all pulling together. That squad has now been decimated and last season's feel good factor has evaporated. Stubbs is either a genius and will surprise us or a clown and destroy us. Or maybe neither and we manage to escape relegation like so many times before. Time will tell.

Since our team could be half full with Englishmen, i hope that they have recovered from that crushing defeat last night   :rolleyes:    and take their anger out of the Killie  team  :)

Better that than us  poor Scots who just watch major tournaments rather than take part in them

Good to get the football back. Hard to predict how things will go as it's very early and I'd imagine there's still a good few players to come in. 

A decent performance will do for me.

Given the recent history of Kilmarnock under SC which could see them finishing in the top three this season, we are playing a well established and confident team in comparison with ours.  For me, tonight will be a welcoming party from our fans to our new manager and squad.  Let's not take the defeat too hard!!

Here's our line-up for the Morton game back in April (the last with a full strength team) - 4 out of the starting line-up plus 5 of the substitutes have gone.

In particular 3 of the back 4 have gone and the other is out of favour. :toilet

Gonna be interesting:bag
