 Match Thread - Pars v Killie

Still early doors yet. We should get the teamsheet in half an hour or so. With the long lay-off, we might see some new faces on the bench. We will soon find out.

Okay, let`s try to muster that matchday enthusiasm one more time...

Struggling for a team today,there will be a few changes. Paul Allan up front

Surely he must be unfit. As it`s confusing how on earth Dow has merited a starting place over him. He has been surprisingly poor since he has came back into the squad. Hopefully Dom can prove a point against his former team.

This game is the start of our league survival.

Focus is on staying in this league.

Forget about what the numpty says about playoffs, he will only be making sure now that we stay in the league, starting today.

1 point or 3 points it won`t really matter.

Not fussed about KK being benched tbh. Think he might be one of these players who does better coming off the bench.

I had a feeling DT would start being ex Killie.

Dow has been poor since coming back , hopefully today he will have more of an impact.
Defence kind of picks itself now that we are going with four at the back.

CM is a fingers crossed as it is fair to say that Pybus ..who has done quite well recently….and young Paul Allen might do the business or get over run by their more experienced players…hopefully they do the business but that is one are of our team where we are lacking real quality.

Up front ? Again it is a fingers crossed situation.

O’ Hara can never be faulted for effort unlike Wighton who is quite lazy IMO, but does have a strikers instinct. Let’s hope they gel today.

Like most Pars fans I would imagine I fear the worst but hope for the best.

Positive first half, little bit more composure in the final third and stop taking that extra touch then we could pull something out the bag.

Kennedy had a great chance to score and managed to shoot at the keeper. A side foot inside the post was all that was required.
Killie go up and score against the run if play.

Aye, would have to see both again but our one looked a bit soft although one you see given as a foul often then theirs looked offside. The referee kept looking over to the linesman as if to say "are you sure?" as well. When it`s not going for you it`s not going for you.

I don`t want Grant here but can`t blame him for today. Glad we got something from the game as we didn`t deserve to lose and the fact it was so late and they`d been wasting time for ages makes it all the sweeter. Thought Paul Allan was very good in the middle of the park today, I`d have given him the Man of the Match today.

Good effort today and unlucky to have a goal chalked off and their first looked as if it could have been offside. As Raymie wrote you wouldn’t have guessed we were bottom and they were second. On balance we were the better team and a pity Kennedy didn’t take his chance.

Dow had his best game since returning from injury. Thomas worked hard and showed flashes of what he is capable of.
Defensively fairly sound and Paul Allan was neat and tidy in midfield.
More than a match for the ante post title favourites.

We were the better team today and more than deserved that point. End product and killer instinct lacking again but this will be due to lack of confidence which will take more than one game to build back up again.
No surprise that the lineup that has played well for us today is pretty close to the exact team and formation majority of Pars fans were calling for from the start of the season! If it wasn`t for the awful tactics and baffling player choice at the beginning of the season by Grant, our players` confidence would be much better and I really doubt we`d be at the bottom of the table.
It was very encouraging to see these players today give everything til the end and play some nice stuff at times. Even more encouraging to know that if we do end up with another manager, we at least know this squad is capable.
As for Grant, this performance today should keep him going for the Partick match at least but 0 wins in the first round of fixtures is obviously unacceptable. If he loses another match before he wins one, he should be gone. However, after the performance today (and the more solid defending the last few weeks), I am more optimistic of a Grant turnaround than at any other point in the season - although that isn`t saying much!

Well deserved point today .
Thought we played pretty well for decent spells .
I'm sure if they perform like that consistently , the 1st win can't be far away .
I thought killies 1st goal looked offside , but I was behind the goals . Would need to see it again from a different angle .
All in all , that should give the players confidence a big boost .

I suspect the most ill informed posts on here are most often made by folk who have an agenda and are not even at the game. The only other explanation if they are at the game is that their understanding of football is on a par with that of a 2 year old toddler.

No one who was at today's game could possibly criticise the team's effort or application, even if we hadn't grabbed that last minute equaliser. For sure, there's room for improvement all over the park, but the effort was very good and another defeat would have been very harsh and undeserved.



Not your average Sunday League player.

Dow did look sharper today and Thomas`s confidence grew after his goal. That`s the best I`ve seen Allan play. He could become a fixture in midfield. There was absolutely no evidence that the players weren`t playing for the manager.

It`s hard to believe some of the posters on here are Pars fans. So many were predicting a drubbing then, when we get a deserved draw, it`s `draws aren`t good enough`. Still we`re not alone. I heard a few Killie fans moaning about Tommy Wright after the game. In fact, one said he`d rather have Peter Grant!

I heard a few Killie fans moaning about Tommy Wright after the game. In fact, one said he`d rather have Peter Grant!


haha who’d be a football fan Eck 😆

If you were to Take this game in isolation, then it was a good performance and decent result. Two lapses for the defence that caused their two goals.

Thought we were the better side today, probably our best performance of the season.

Players looked like they are fully behind PG and never gave up.

Excellent game. Great entertainment. Bags of effort. Draw was the least we deserved and Grant deserves some credit.

We were OK today. Competed well and would have been a bit unlucky to lose the game. There wasn`t much in it at all.

We looked OK with the ball in the first half and worked some nice positions, though without ever managing a clear chance. Good save from O`Hara`s shot but would have been a mistake if he hadn`t saved it. One good bit of defending by Connelly near the end of the first half to get in front of his man at a ball in from wide that looked to prevent a certain goal.

Decent with the ball in the first half but not good at all without it. Others have mentioned Paul Allan being good with the ball which is fair, but defensively he looked absolutely lost, especially in the first 20 minutes. Tough shift for any player to come into that system as one of the two midfield players, where being good defensively is the biggest part of the game.

It looked a game that would finish 1-0 either way. There was plenty effort on both sides, but not much that looked like opening it up for a good scoring chance. Going a goal down just seemed typical of how the breaks have been going for us. We have loads of corners in the second half that come to nothing, then miss with the first really good chance of the game. Up to the other end, Killie`s first corner of the half and we`re a goal down. However, it looked like we did get a big break for our first goal as it didn`t look like Thomas was shooting to me. Their second goal was hugely frustrating. All over the place straight from the restart - I know it`s hard to get focused and organised after the high of equalising but you have to do better than that. I might be totally misremembering it, but I think there was also a break of the ball involved there too, with the ball breaking their way from a tackle.

So, a goal down getting late in the game, and it didn`t look especially like an equaliser would come. I was actually quite pleased to see us just fire balls into the box at that stage, and eventually a ball fell our way. It looked an absolutely beautiful finish from Comrie (who did not have his best game, but gave good support to the attack all game).

At the moment, we often seem to be OK with the ball or OK without the ball, but never good enough at both. I don`t know why we`re so disorganised at times, and I`m exasperated that we so often allow the opposition to take a shy in our half, thrown 10-20 yards straight towards the middle of the pitch, to a man who is able to retain the ball easily. It`s basic and it shouldn`t happen.

But, a point from that position is OK, and there`s not much to rival the feeling of scoring a meaningful goal right at the end like that. Hopefully this time it can be the start of a run that includes some wins.

Pars fans are often accused of being overly demanding on this forum, but some of the Killie fans today were something else. The thought of how furious those ones must surely have been to lose their lead so late amuses me.

I see the Falkirk mutants are shouting out for Hughes.
They`re having just as hard a time as us.
Their manager will be away before ours by the looks of it.
I feel we`ll get more points after today, think this is a turning point.🙏

Picking up on Socks post, the aspect of our game that rips ma knittin is our corners.
Often we can't beat the first man. Today if it wasn't going straight to their keeper it was the high floater to the back post that it seems very difficult to do anything with.
We'd be better taking them short and working the ball in.

One positive for me was we finally saw Rhys Breen on the park, albeit briefly. However, in that short time, he displayed speed, strength, determination and gave OFW a rollicking for not coming for a ball that he clearly should have come for. I think we may be seeing a bit more of him.

That last part of your post sums up my feelings towards killie and their fans it’s just a pitty it wasn’t a 90+5 winner as that would have made my weekend (absolutely no love lost for Kilmarnock fc from me)

And even better was the karma for Killie's goalie, after all that time wasting he indulged in and a feckless ref who didn't even issue a warning, never mind a card. Is there on "ungentlemanly conduct" offence in football any more?

That was a good Pars performance today, Grant & the team need to take the positives from the draw (& there were many) and not fear the trip to Maryhill. Partick are not the best team in our league

Think today there was only 2 players in the starting 11 that grant actually signed and sounds like it was our best performance.

It shows how poor a summer we had in the market, can’t afford to do it again in jan, grant or no grant.

Things will be looking up……..now yogi is gone!

My first game for ages due to working weekends.....and being skint lol.

Thouroughly enjoyed it, as did the elderly gent I took with me. Much thanks to the matchbuddy who helped me.

Thought we did better than ok against the title favourites with 13 men and a whistle.

I agree with Raymie, hopefully this result and how they achieved it will give the players some confidence. He does touch on another aspect which tbh is something that has been missing of late.... They went off to fans applauding and supporting them. That`s going to mean something to the team.

Fair do`s to those there today but I couldn`t go even if I did want to. I had us down for a proper pounding, A draw before the game I would have snatched your hand off. This isn`t about Peter Grant it`s about giving the backing to the player`s.
I do think things will get better, but I also believe PG is not the man to take us forward regardless if results improve.

You're right about the lucky break for their 2nd Socks. Ball landed perfectly for them.

It did feel like a win at the end, sadly only 1 point. You could see it meant a lot to the players at the end and they were applauded off the park. Puts any notion that PG's lost the dressing room to bed.

It's a travesty that it's taken this long for PG to essentially revert to Crawford's team.

I find it a little strange that Grant has copped all the flak so far for lineups and tactics.
His first team coaches are Shields and Whittaker. Both were there last season.
I can’t believe for one minute that Grant has not been taking on board their input so far this season?

Been thinking about posting much the same for a while, they're certainly part of this underwhelming experience.....again.

It`s true only two of PG`s signings started yesterday and three came on as subs. It has been a long bumpy start to the season in terms of player availability however and maybe as we start to see a more settled team/squad emerge it will become a better time to judge his signing record.

Suppose it depends how PG runs things - how much input do they have on formation, etc? Maybe they've been telling him for weeks?

They were supposed to be telling Stevie for weeks too, didn't tell him much right over the piece...
