Whittaker played fine today, some good moments, and not enough bad moments to merrit the slating he's getting. There were folk around me in the west lower screaming at him from the word go. Some folk are weird.
By far and away our best player in the first half, can't understand some of the comments about him. Second half not so good but still not as bad as some are making out.
I wouldn’t go that far. He had his moments, but Mallan scored a sublime free kick and had a pin-point assist for the second, as well as generally playing well. His man of the match wasn’t just for for the second half performance.

I enjoyed the match. Thought there was much more to be pleased about than criticise. We looked very good going forward, and for the first time started to see what the team could look like when we get everyone up to speed. Milligan will bring a bit of mobility and steel into the midfield...we have some great wide options. SDG looks back to his best..and once we get Jamie and Flo back match fit, we will give most a game with our best 11 out..
Most of the post match posts seem to be focussing on what didn't go well...but I'd like to focus on the good stuff after a match like that...thought Killie scored two good goals. Our first two goals were right out of the top drawer. They will be a top six side imo so I'm happy we came through against a good side..
A good game? Was mediocre at best. Offers nothing. Far too lackadaisical and the majority of the time it's because he can't keep up with play. I dont blame him per se. But more Lennon for expecting too much of him in the role he plays. Hyndman was anonymous without making and obvious mistakes. Whittaker tried but just can't find consistency due to a lack of pace and poor decision making. There's a reason why after they 2 went off we started to play football through the middle and actually started winning second balls.
Howdy partner, That's a bandwagon you have just jumped on
Folk see exactly what they want to see, nothing else.
Whittaker had a very good first half and a decent second half until he tired and was rightfully substituted when he was.
He is a DM, both goals come from the left wing and are scored by their forwards and he is to blame, aye right
Still once we have a scapegoat we are as well to stick with him as it lets people who watch a game that must totally pass them by get involved with the debate.
if you read some of the crap on here the next thing Whittaker will be getting blamed for is the sinking of the Titanic.
