2017-18 Diary Week 01
JJ was the manager back in 2008 when we last won our opening fixture (3-0 Hamilton, thanks Dillinger), so we shouldn’t really be surprised that we came away with nothing this time around, even with another JJ in the mix.
For me it’s a formation problem, Lee has a vision of what he wants but with Power’s fitness below par and Dicker still injured we have no real support for Frizzell in there to play at his best.
We look infinitely better without the spare man in the middle and Erwin up front complementing Boyd.
Lee McCulloch has made too many good signings to single them out, and we kept hold of our best players from last year, so I’m confident that despite the sluggish start we will improve when the team has time to gel properly.
Well done to the “Trust In Killie” lads who played in the Legends match at the Open Day on Sunday past; Hooky’s Heroes beat Monty’s Marvels 4-2 and everyone seemed to enjoy the return of the popular fixture.
