Greg Stewart's loan move to Aberdeen is "bull****" and has a "slightly strange smell about it" says Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke.

Clarky not too impressed     :P

Jeez, I certaianly didn't expect that result. It wasn't a great first half, but we took our goal well and huffed and puffed our way to half time and they didn't cause us any real problems, but they defended in numbers and did it well and I fair expected us to come out and batter them in the second half, but our players obviously didn't read the script.

We were woeful second half, Stewart had a shot blocked after good work by McGinn to open them up, then Stewart smashed a good one off the crossbar and I was thinking we were about to step up a gear, but it just didn't happen at all and they then had the audacity to go up the other end and score a goal which was something out of Roy of the Rovers. I thought McLennan should have done better when the ball came out to him, but their player ended up with the ball and sent in a cross which their striker scored with a great diving header, a real sickener.

Nae the best of performances and I thought both GMS and McGinn were shite and Cosgrove didn't look like the player who was on fire during December, but I did think it strange Stewart was straight in the line up at the expense of May who was starting to find a bit of form alongside Cosgrove.

Despite Stenny giving it everything they had and making it hard for us to carve open an opening, we really shouldn't have struggled as much as we did, I half expected them to sneak a winner by the end.

The only positive is that we are still in the cup, but very little to take from the game overall, but really shouldn't be having to play an exptrea game in 10 days time.

Can't argue with any of that  :thumbsup:

That was poor. They defended their asses off but ffs we should be destroying sides like this! Very poor defending for their goal. And there was a moment just after that they broke down the same wing, Logan, instead of running to close down, ran to the box leaving Connor who was further away (I think) to attempt to block the cross! Cosgrove had a mare, his attempts at trapping a pass are embarrassing!
We should take care of them down there but it's 90 more minutes we could do without!

A replay on their awful plastic carpet is not going to be a given. Stenhousemuir have been awful this season and to fail to put them away at home is embarrassing. As TC says seems a really odd decision to change a winning team. Got to wonder about what benefit the Jolly to Dubai and the winter break actually bring.

Think it was crackers to start with Stewart hadn't trained with us in 8 months plus May/Cosgrove were going well.....if it ain't broke fgs don't fix it. Still totally unacceptable and utterly embarrassing.

Only upside is that I can make the replay......they better get their fingers out for that one. Still haven't beaten Stenny ever in our history  :hammer:

Certainly did not anticipate that. A team bottom of their league, which is 2 leagues below us, and conceded 16 goals in their last 5 games, has to go down as an absolutely ridiculous & unacceptable result. Fairytale stuff for Stenhousemuir though and I am sure they will enjoy the replay ( Which I thoroughly :confused: expect us to coast through  )

Personally given what I have seen since I started following the Dons I am not surprised by this result but I hope it brings those players back to earth with a serious bang.

Considering going to the replay since it will be on my way home from work.....unless of course it is all ticket and my lack of points rules me out (or the club don't want 'the Jonah' to attend)
