Be The Boss - Alistair Lyon

15-02-2017


Well last week's "Boss" Adam Lyon nearly called it spot on, even the formation change with two up front, which is quite impressive. Not so impressed was his old man who spotted the article getting advertised online and bemoaned the fact that in over 30 years as a Killie fan, no one had ever asked his opinion on the team! Well they have now...and for the first time ever we get a father succeeding his son and taking over the KillieFC hot seat...over to Alistair...

Well it's been a decent few weeks that have seen us not quite burst, more slither, in to the top 6. Hopefully we can keep that going to see our highest place finish for a few years and I think I've got just the team to do that. For me it's all about a change in formation that can be either attack or defence minded so it's 3-5-2 or 5-3-2.


GOALKEEPER 
Jamie McDonald - I'm not party to what's going on behind the scenes but on the pitch Jamie's done nothing wrong. Nothing against young Woodman I just don't know why there has been a change.

RIGHT BACK 
Luke Hendrie - We were lucky last year with our loanee right back and I think we've been even luckier this year. Our most consistent performer and I just hope he's fit. If not one of the other twelve right back's will have to step in.

RIGHT CENTRE HALF
Iain Wilson - When he was dropped in at the deep end he was there to be counted. I don't know yet if he's a midfielder but he can play at the back.

SWEEPER 
Gary Dicker - The man people are talking about. I actually felt he was having a good year in midfield but at centre half he's been superb. My decision to go 3-5-2 is down to the fact we are continually overrun in midfield. Gary has shown amazing composure on the ball and I'm building the team around him.

LEFT CENTRE HALF 
Kristoffer Ajer - Because we have to play him but also because he has been superb. I think it was Adam who said last week that he runs out of defence like the legend that is Momo Sissoko. No bad thing.

LEFT BACK 
Greg Taylor - Reminds me of Hooky. He'll do

RIGHT MIDFIELD
Sean Longstaff - A good goal threat and hopefully a good future in the game for him.

CENTRE MIDFIELD 
Adam Frizzell - How can you go from a man-of-the-match performance against Celtic to getting no more game time? A pocket dynamo.

LEFT MIDFIELD
Dean Hawkshaw - This boy looks like he's got a good engine and isn't afraid to tackle. I think he suits this narrow midfield.

STRIKER
Kris Boyd - Past it? Lazy? No good? Rubbish! Club legend, two goals in three games. First part of the season absolutely no service. Get the ball in the correct area and he'll score. Just remember he single-handedly kept us up three seasons ago until he made the worst choice of his football career.

STRIKER
The Fish/Joshua Umerah - I've not seen either of them play yet a hard one to call. Hopefully the fish can recreate his last season but ultimately this position is Greg's as soon as he's fit.

So that's my team/formation. No wingers as they don't deliver consistently enough but they'll be on the bench ready to come on when we need to change the shape, push Ian Wilson in to midfield and go 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1.

'Mon the Killie!
