#1105565 General Football - Weird Results And Other Things Worth Sharing

Posted by SramTon on 06 December 2018 - 03:46 AM

Kilmarnock top of the league, eh?

Just think about it, an anniversary dinner 30 years from now and some alcoholic, Ayrshire tramp still whining about a f*ck up with money ten years on from that, whilst his lapdog does the Keystore run for his fags and Thunderbird every morning.

 

I used to sit in the stand with my Dad and there was a guy and his wife, both from Kilmarnock, who appeared behind us from 1994 to 97.

 

Guy was a mentalist and absolutely hated Peter Cormack Snr.   Bear in mind this was the Lindberg, Rajamaki, Lilley, McInnes etc. era where we were going great and playing some of the best stuff ever.    No matter what happened Cormack was getting it, starting from the moment the team (picked by McGraw) was announced.   We'd be comfortably winning and McGraw makes a sub in injury time: "CORMACK!!! You ***ing clown!!!" etc.   His wee wife would be trying to calm him down as he's near giving himself a stroke.

 

Anyway, all throughout the 96-97 season he kept announcing that he'd had enough and was going to get a season ticket for Killie.  Never saw them again after that, so presume that's what they did. 

 

So, anyway, that's the guy.

It's been so long I don't remember - did he actually try to resign after the playoff defeat and DDF refused to accept it, or was that later?


He was on the radio within minutes of full-time saying that he wouldn’t be resigning.

He had previously said that he would resign if we didn’t win promotion, but later used the removal of the second automatic promotion place and it’s replacement by the playoff to retreat from that.

Granted I miss quite a lot... but I don't really get the Hoppy hate that VT and Toby share.

 

VT was Kenny Shiel's biggest cheerleader before and after he got the job.

 

Given a choice of admitting that Shiels was the wrong man at the wrong time and his tenure was an abject failure, or instead shifting the blame onto the nearest available stooge in Hoppy, there was only going to be one result.
