Be The Boss - Alisdair Hood
Our "Boss" this week is none other than Killie's own master chef and Coffee Press supremo Alisdair Hood. The former Merchants owner is a busy man, especially at this time of year, but he took some time out to pick his team for this week's Friday night match against St Johnstone. We love a Friday night game here at KillieFC...
With the important Festive fixtures coming at us thick and fast I’ve opted for the following team with a 4-5-1 formation. It is important that we stifle St Johnstone and start picking up some wins to try and stretch away from the rest below us. If we can then I think it’ll bode well for the second half of the season. Due to injuries defence pretty much is all we have got at the moment and hopefully we can keep our composure.
I’ve opted for a five across midfield and brought back Frizzell and Hawkshaw. Their energy could be useful in breaking down play and for back up for Coulibaly. The two guys on the wing will be key for us to get something out of the game. Up front I’ve decided on Coulibaly on his own but this can be switched with Tyson if necessary during the game. Hoping for a nice 2-1 victory to send us into Christmas full of cheer.
Merry Christmas to all Killie fans!
Jamie MacDonald – A no brainer
Luke Hendrie – Been impressed with him this season and is developing into a solid player for us. Hopefully we can keep him till the end of the season.
Will Boyle – Again another player that seems to be growing in stature as the season progresses.
Ian Wilson – Brought in as we are a bit short in this position but did well enough last week to keep his place.
Greg Taylor – Quickly becoming one of the first names on the team sheet and can slot into left midfield if necessary.
Gary Dicker – A solid and reliable player and probably most consistent midfielder at the moment.
Adam Frizzell – Was really impressed with him against Celtic a few weeks ago. Like his ability to nip away at opponents. Think he could do a decent job for us on Friday.
Dean Hawkshaw – Another young player that was doing well before he got injured earlier in the season. Got a good bit of energy which will be of good use against an experienced St Johnstone team and has been gaining fitness with a few run outs for the development team.
Nathan Tyson – Got a good bit of pace which can be put to great effect down the right wing.
Jordan Jones – Another with great pace but sometimes his decision making lets him down. Been doing really well in the last few weeks.
Souliymane Coulibaly – A fantastic signing and has been chipping in with some outstanding goals this season.
