Be The Boss - Billy Standring
Taking his place in the gaffer's chair this week is the one and only Billy Standring. Billy is a long-time member of the website and has been a volunteer/coach/committee member at the best young supporters' group in the country, Young Killie, for many a year. Without further ado, here is his line up and instructions for his new charges....
Jamie McDonald - First name down on the team sheet, saved a lot of points last season and continues to do the same this season, one of the best.
Right back: Luke Hendrie - Fast becoming a good reliable right back, solid in defence and good at going forward to support the midfield & forwards.
Centre Half: Scott Boyd - A good no nonsense centre half, steadied the back four, would be great to get him signed up on a permanent deal.
Centre Half: Johnny Burn (if fit) - Has started to form a good partnership with Boyd, what we have been needing.
Left Back: Greg Taylor - Turning into a really good attacking left back, can easily play in midfield but prefer him at full back.
Right Midfield: Rory McKenzie - Non stop running, closing down the opposition, Hearts game his best in a while needs to show the same commitment more regularly.
Centre Midfield: Gary Dicker - Will need to stamp his authority on the game early on, bring the wingers into play and support the attack, been a very good signing.
Centre Midfield: Stevie Smith - A more defensive role than Dicker, sit in front of the back four when we don't have the ball, get forward to support the strikers when the situation allows.
Left Midfield: Jordan Jones - Has been a good signing, a bit inconsistent, needs to run at the full backs and get crosses into the box, potential match winner.
Forward: Souleymane Coulibaly - All action forward, doesn't score mundane goals, find of the season, play him just off the main striker to feed off knock downs and crosses from the wingers.
Centre Forward: Nathan Tyson - Has shown enough in the few starts he has had, will need service and the goals will come.
Playing a 442 system with captain Stevie Smith as the sitting midfielder, Jones and McKenzie attacking the full backs and our full backs going beyond the midfield when the situation will result in a 3-0 Killie win and hey presto - I'm manager of the year!
