Be The Boss - Iain Sherry

14-03-2017

We're keeping it in-house again this week with KFCSA committee member Iain Sherry who does the majority of our interviews for KillieFC TV. If you fancy the opportunity to "Be the Boss" then get in touch HERE and let us know. Over to our current gaffer...


This week we are back at Rugby Park to play a Thistle side who have been in great form in recent weeks. Last week's win against County may have been fortuitous but we have been due some luck, especially after the 'Well and Dons games. This will be a stern test and with our home form being  poor we'll need to be on top of our game against a side which we have drawn twice with already this season in the league. Their talisman striker Doolan needs one for 100 goals for Thistle, so let’s hope he has to wait a bit longer. The home fans deserve some cheer so hopefully this Saturday will see a long overdue Killie victory.

 FORMATION 4-4-1-1

GOALKEEPER
Freddie 'Fingers' Woodman - The youngster has not done badly since joining Killie, I say we continue with him. Although, Jamie MacDonald should never have been dropped in the first place, a ludicrous decision by our former manager.

RIGHT BACK
Luke Hendrie - One of our most consistent performers this season and has made this position his own, we need to try and get him signed for next season.

LEFT BACK
Greg Taylor - Surely young player of the year another who has performed well and made this spot his own?

CENTRE HALF
Kristoffer Ajer - Kris has come into Killie with a great attitude and professionalism and has been a stand out. Well mature beyond his years.

CENTRE HALF
Scott Boyd - Has been a good addition to the Killie squad this year, and his experience is needed in a young back four.

CENTRE MIDFIELD
Gary Dicker - Another who has done well this season and who is the best midfielder in Killie's team which has been our weak area all season.

CENTRE MIDFIELD
Sean Longstaff - The Newcastle loanee has done well since January and scored important goals for us always keen to get forward to give the opposition defence problems.

LEFT MIDFIELD
Stevie Smith - If fit then Stevie Smith would fill this spot which has been a problem all season. His experience is vital although there are other candidates, none have secured it as their own.

RIGHT MIDFIELD
Rory McKenzie - Another position which has proved somewhat troublesome to fill with several players having been played there. I've gone for Mackenzie as he has started to get among the goals in recent weeks.

CENTRE FORWARD
Conor Sammon - After having had a hard time at Tynecastle, the Fish seems to be happier back in friendly territory. A good foil for Boomer, Sammon is another guy who we should be looking to get to Rugby Park on a longer term basis, as I doubt he has a future in Gorgie.

CENTRE FORWARD
Kris Boyd - The goal machine once again proved his worth at County and despite his advancing years showed when it comes to finishing he is still one of the best. Let's hope he stays fit for the rest or the season.
