  1. Our last set of accounts had a total wage bill of £3.15m, that was for our AGM in January 2019 Accounts due out shortly for this year. Out that £3.15m, it was made up of the following. 74 football related staff and 20 admin. Turnover was £5.06m but I expect both our staff costs and turnover to be up a fair bit in the next set of accounts.
  2. Maybe start working on your accuracy then! You had 12 shots against Aberdeen and still got scudded 3-0. . We had 17 shots against Accies and still lost 2-0! My point is we don't park the bus, we're incredibly hard to play against but most of that is with us in possession.
  3. We don't really park the bus, we do however play a lot of possession football. We were something like 65% possession on Saturday against St Mirren, think against Livi was 60% which is pretty much how we play. Same away from home, we had 48% possession at Tynecastle, whilst free flowing Motherwell had 41% at the same venue. We had 51% possession at Perth and you guys had 46% (both winning 1-0) I think the press overplay how we defend, it's certainly not 10 men behind the ball that's for sure but we give very little away (8 clean sheets in past 10 games) Will be an interesting game.
  4. There was something a bit off about Burrows' Twitter announcement. It was almost as if he was trying to force through the move to Celtic. Strange.
  5. I know mate, I'm not disputing that! Will also show that we got more points this season and only finished 3rd!
  6. Stronger league now than it was when you finished 2nd IMO but was some achievement. SOD and Findlay were in last squad, Taylor should have been in last squad given he was U21 left back, played over 120 games at left back for us at 21 and we had fucking Shinnie at left back! He's an obvious choice. Brophy is due to lack of options and I'm a bit surprised as he's missed a lot of the season injured but he's no worse an option than McNulty. Turnbull should 100% be in the squad, especially ahead of shite like Burke.
  7. Whilst I think it should be free for anyone who went last night, I can see why the club are trying to minimise losses. Stewards, police, staff etc don't get paid for half a shift last night and need paid again on Saturday. Killie will still lose a fortune.
  8. Aye, ask him why it's £24 for us to get into your place whilst home fans can get in a hell of a lot cheaper whilst you're at it. Cheers
  9. Latest I've heard is SPFL are pushing fit Saturday even though we are booked to go away. Couldn't make it up.
  10. Killie wanted the game moved to the Saturday originally from last night. Motherwell refused which is fair enough. Killie then booked warm weather training camp in Tenerife for 5 days and fly out Saturday.
  11. I'd expect a pretty much full strength side tonight. I've also known to be wrong!
  12. Hopefully we bounce back after a disappointing draw at Hamilton. I'd expect a big, big away support for this one. We had 2,200+ at NDP on Saturday and seems to be more interest in this one. First time in my life I've had to buy a ticket for Motherwell away and Accies away!
  13. Steve Clarke's sacking by WBA was laughable and they've been in freefall every since. Got them their highest ever EPL finish.
