Clarke was my choice for manager last summer.
More than happy we got SG.
However I would be concerned if he replaced Rodgers. If he can get a load of average players to perform like they have he might be able to do even better with a bigger budget.
Which blows the plastic pitch leveler theory out of the window.
As far as I've heard Clarke is wanting rid of that abomination of a plastic pitch by next season too. I remember Stevie Smith saying on RTV a while back that the Kilmarnock players despised it as much as the visiting players.
Think we all know the scum will horse them!!. Hope I'm wrong though
Still think they will fall away. Would love them to get a point at least at the weekend. Then we take advantage this time on Sunday.
How is it compared to ours?
I'd be surprised if there still in contention come the end of the season but theve only lost once in their last 8 games?v Rangers and Celtic in the league. Theve proved they can compete with the top teams in the league consistently.
No it’s silly to think they can win the title, nothing is won in December and the month isn’t over yet. There was a time as a football fan I would have welcomed some other team emerging to challenge the usual two horse dominance but not now. These days I am only interested in us winning things and I just can’t see Killie going all the way and I don’t want to see them do it either as I can’t stand their FANS who are generally bitter wee diddy club arse holes but IF they did manage to win the league then it would be all credit to Clarke and his players but you’d also have to question the standard of the league overall if they won it.
They will drift back into mid table mediocrity second half of the season
Kilmarnock also don’t have to play 38 cup finals so don’t forget that element to it which is unique to Rangers and Rangers only.
I will think about it,if they hump the tims on saturday.
Doesn't happen to them anymore though. They're more likely to win based on form this year.
I would personally, and I'm sure Gerrard will too.
I'll take them seriously when they can pull 5k fans into their ground for a run of the mill game
I hope Clark gets an offer from England soon as I do not want him replacing the tranny when Gerrard sees him off, he is a really good manager IMO.
Us or them play at 80% for rest of season, we finish 10 points ahead of them
No but Clarke and his players definitely deserve respect for their record.
Kilmarnock have as much chance as St Mirren have.
Bullshit, they haven’t lost to the tarriers in the last 4 games they have already drawn at Ibrox this season they may not win the league but to dismiss them so blithely is absurd. Their form over the last 38 games makes it stupid to dismiss them.
Think they will fall away, but Clarke is certainly put himself in the frame for the Tranny sh*ggers job & he'll also suit their price range given all the potential compen case they face.
Absolutely not. If they take 27 points from the next ten games I'll start to consider them. Until then they're just another shower of shite who hit a purple patch, like hearts at start of the season
It'll be interesting to see how Clarke does once the onus is on his team to come out and win games.
They've got a decent run of games after Saturday: Dundee (H), Hamilton (A), Motherwell (A), St.Mirren (H). I hope they're still in the mix once we go into the Winter break.
Aye in the Ibrox pie department
I reckon they will finish third, they are a quality team by SPL standards, and very hard to beat. On a match by match level of course they must be taken seriously, but really we have to take all opposition seriously. It's been that way for years, we cannot expect to win a game by just turning up, our number one enemy this season is not just brenda's mob, but complacency
What absolute nonsense.
Killie are top of the league for a reason, Clarke is a very astute manager who has never EVER lost a game to Rogers here or in England. He sets his teams up like Walter Smith, ie very defensively sound, even when they get beat they very rarely get skelped.
He has them playing as a team, for the jersey and to their strengths.
It’s a gallant effort so far , and if it continues then fair play.
If we can’t win the league then I’d rather they did over the scum any day .
They will get pumped by the bheasts and start the slow drop back to mediocrity.
You cannot argue with what Clarke has managed to do at Kilmarnock.
He has probably been the Scottish manager of 2018.
Two things may happen, one he is offered a decent job in England or he stays and takes over the Filth when Rodgers leaves.
I can't see him continuing for too long at Rugby Park because his performance will be attracting suitors from financially stronger teams who need a coach who knows what he is doing and Clarke certainly does.
Look how quickly Hearts have fallen and they were top last month. All it takes is an injury to a key player or two then they'll struggle. You need to have a bit of luck on your side too.
What Clarke has achieved at Kilmarnock is nothing short of remarkable. They have consistently picked up points against every team in the league and there is nothing to suggest this is going to stop any time soon. I think Clarke is a shoe-in to be offered the tarrier job when Brenda leaves, possibly at the end of this season, and if that happens our quest to win the league becomes much harder imo.
If we weren’t so disrespectful of other teams, there’d be a lot less hysterics on here when we fail to win a game 5-0 with the opposition barely getting a touch of the ball
I'm sorry but did you say Kilmarnock have a chance to win the league??
Not a hope in hell, would be great though. Likely a 3rd place finish for Kilmarnock which of course their fans will be lapping up.
If they get a result at Parkhead this weekend then things might change. I think they’ll get turned over though. I can see a comfortable 3-0 win for Celtic
Yes, likewise. I predict a straightforward 3-0
No. The scum are humping them right now.
Did you stick a bet on that score mate?
We win our two game in hand we go 6 clear.
These mugs managed a draw against us, shows there’s still a lot of investment in the team required.
3-0 to them just now and it's not even half time
Tarriers currently pasting them to the wall.
Obviously not. I dont see what we have to stop them either. Oh well nobody said it would be easy.
Tarriers goal difference going well today
Six points clear of who? We'd only be 5 ahead of Kilmarnock, and the Mhanks have a game in hand over us.
I was told on here last year that Clarke suffered from second season syndrome and would be unable to replicate his early success.
With him in charge last year we certainly wouldn't have finished third and got humped out of the cup on two occasions.
