Well it's true enough, the new training ground has made a difference.  ;D

Crossing the Mounthooly roundabout and heard Main was starting and was going to turn around and go home, but I didn't and to be fair he had a good game and he did offer us something, he also chases lost causes and seems more mobile than big Sam, who we lost in the second half to injury.

Main took his goal very well and it was a great cross from Ferguson, the second one I am sure Main fouled the Keeper, but it was given as Sams. At this point Killie stepped up a gear, but lacked quality, although it took a great save from our Mr Dependable in goal to stop them from scoring and they huffed and puffed, but they never did look like scoring, even though Joe made two further saves. Burke is a greeting faced hun cunt though.

We certainly went into to game management mode, but was good to see us get that third, which maybe flattered us a little, but we deserved the win. I thought Main had scored us a second, but it smashed off the post to safety.

I have to say I was pissed off to see Considine come on near the end when he didn't need to, could have gave Anderson some game time up front or Campbell.

I've said before I still see Ferguson as an attacking midfielder and not a defensive one, he looks far more comfortable attacking than he does defending.

Main was my MOTM and I though Vyner had a great game also and Joe as is usual always pulls off a great save when we need it.

Edit: Just watched the highlights and it was Sam who rattled the post with the shot not Main.

Fuck me, what a result to wake up to! Did not see that one coming. Killie having their own defensive injury crisis had a helping hand in sure, but that main goal was really well worked and finished. Kudos to the team!

Got the result correct, just not all of the scorers!

It's another 3 points, Motherwell winning keeps them 3rd but I am hoping they fade away, they normally do, would probably hurt them if Robinson is approached and subsequently, takes, the Hearts job.

2 games in a row were Ferguson has been the best player? Never saw the game, just going by Social Media, perhaps the lad reads this forum and is determined to prove me wrong  :thumbsup:

Hopefully that gives Main a shot in the arm, but I highly doubt we'll go with 2 out and out Strikers again, so he'll probably be back to being on the bench, unless Cosgrove is injured, which hopefully, he is not.

Back to back wins, a full week off, hopefully that is the corner turned and we can carry on picking up these 3 points and get some daylight from the rest.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

Decent game to be fair, surprised he started with 2 strikers, but think he got formation pretty much spot on.
 My motm was either Ferguson or Vyner, Vyner really appears to be settling in midfield, also looking the like of Leigh.
Very well worked goal for 1st & good finish by Main :o  Killie actually knock the ball about well & have a few tidy players. Couple of good stops by Joe as per.  Ref Clancy had a bit of a mare as usual & missed a stonewaller for us.

Good game & good 3 points :thumbsup:

Good win but didn’t  think we played that well. Main looked good but have to to put that into perspective of him being up against make shift centre backs in a woeful looking Killie team. Main looked good for Well in a similar situation against us. Move for first goal was great especially the cross from Ferguson. Killie fans on the train were not pleased with their teams performance and were suggesting they have been poor for a while.

I could see how the Killie manager wants them to play, but they lack the quality to do it. Yes they have a couple of tidy players, but also a fair bit of dross. The opening goal for us knocked their game plan out as they had to change their set up and our second knocked the stuffing out of them. That said the stop by Joe not long after we went 1 up was a big help to us and shows the value once again of having a first class goalie.
