What I don't understand, is other teams are beginning to get reasonable size crowds, Hibs gettings 2,000 tickets for Motherwell for example so what's the big issue with Kilmarnock. I hear that 2 stands are closed for cost-saving but not sure if this is true or not. You would think opening the stand and getting the crowd in for a local derby would be more beneficial - hey ho that's the vermin logic for you.  ???

Interesting the official line is that it is for overrunning construction work and limit on the capacity due to single door toilets but not outrageous that it is cost cutting including not paying for stewarding/policing to segregate the crowd.

Could be something in this as whilst they have assembled a decent championship squad and will be favourites for the title I would have expected them to have had a few more ex SPL veterans so probably can't afford.

Both teams don't have much goal threat so 0-0 bore draw with both defences doing their job.

This whole thing starting to look a bit meh - less than a week to go and no indictaions of anyone coming on loan - Harker and Gomez Mancini played in the U23 match and seemed to be our preferred options but both in the Burnley first team squad - seems the friendly was an excuse for them to see who has kicked on in their U23 squad rather than letting us run the rule over options - alternatively we asked for Harker, Macini-Gomez and were told no and were offered players we didn't want.

What i would have hoped in advance of the friendly would have been "what position do you need to fill? - ok we are looking to put these players out on loan so will play them in the game so as you can have a look" - are the loanees even coming this window? No doubt we will end up with a centre half and left back on loan.

I have a horrible feeling that Hopkin has been relying on Burnley U23 filling the obvious gaps in the squad.

Disappointing we can't go but I don't blame them for putting their own fans first. I'd be raging if I couldn't get a ticket for one of our games but away fans could.

Blame the SPFL, this should never have been made the first game of the season.

Not a bad draw.
Should be a decent crowd ( covid rules permitting) and a decent chance of going through to the next round.

They are running scared and the season hasn't even started.

Either one of the ugly sisters away from home - they are so starved of football they will turn out in decent numbers even for a game against Ayr - of the two prefer Celtic as unlikley to be thumped as they seem to be using our non recruitment model.
