2018-19 Diary Week 9
It appears that my faith paid off in no uncertain terms due to a manager who knows what he is doing and a squad that just won’t give in.
We are now unbeaten against the champions in four consecutive matches for the first time since the sixties and for the first time in years the league is looking interesting.
I had a good feeling when the ‘Trust in Killie’ History Board was unveiled before the match by Steve Clarke and Trust Chairman Jim Thomson declared that "this was only the beginning and better was still to come".
And so it did.
Aaron Tshibola proved that the manager had opted for the right #27 to sign and Mulumbu blotted his copybook with our fans with a petulant display that saw our respect for him rapidly diminish.
It is difficult to single out players when you put in such a good team performance but Chris Burke was also outstanding, what a work ethic he has, and Stuart Findlay could be the shrewdest signing Clarke made this summer.
Their goals were just reward for the effort they put in and their determination to get a result for 'the mighty' was an inspiration to their team mates and the fans watching as well.
We saw the best and worst of the Celtic support as they joined with us in a tribute to Tommy Burns in the 51st minute, and then threw smoke bombs on that damaged the pitch and proceeded to wreck seats again.
With shocking referees and no control over the so-called big teams it is quite clear that the SFA are a joke.
