    It was woefully inept. Now I don't care if it was a dead rubber, I expect much better from our professional players.

    1500 went to watch and deserved much better than that.
    Agree with this.

    We’ve been short on quality in some games since PH came in, which I can deal with. But we didn’t put nearly enough in to that game yesterday.

    Watched the highlights on Sportscene. That pitch!.. It looked like the game was being played on an industrial slag-heap. Do not know what was worse; that, or the penalty decision.

    Terrible pitch.Killie have lost more games at home that they have away.

    Club shelled out for the players and staff to stay in a hotel on Friday night as well. Money down the drain.

    I doubt that you would ever get this sort of attitude from the old firm
    Did you see how bad Celtic were today?

    In a perverse sort of way, today’s defeat doesn’t upset me too much as it gives Killie a chance of third place. I think they deserve it more than Aberdeen.
    How's that when they are only seperated by goal difference.
    They also have the advantage of playing on a artificial
    surface every 2nd week.

    Didn't we do the same for every game under Lennon - away from home that is?

    Wasn't aware of it being for every game - if it was then I'd have even more cause to query it!

    Been done for every away game for a couple of seasons now ....don’t know if Hecky has always continued it. Lennon certainly did

    Think we’ve cutback since Hecky came in
    Lennon always wanted to know where his players were, and what they were eating, the night before a match

    Let's say we have rooms for a squad of 18 plus manager and assistant, coaches etc. As far as I understand it the days of sharing rooms are over in football, so you're reasonably looking at 25 rooms per match on a conservative basis - probably actually a few more. Say an average agreed rate of £50 per room per night, again fairly conservative, multiplied by 38 league games (and leaving aside both cup competitions) and you're looking at £47,500: probably 50% of the annual salary of a decent squad player, or about 125 - 130 adult season ticket sales. It adds up!

    Every team has at least one game where they simply “don’t turn up”
    Even the old firm.
    Just noticed Hearts are 6/1 to win cup final ..... worth a punt?

    I'll be sticking a few quid on them to soften the blow if they win it

    Agreed, the numbers I was told at the start of the season were significantly more than that too.

    Im not sure if they still do it or if it was just a Lennon thing to be honest.

    No.

    I would get zero satisfaction out of winning money from Hearts winning the Scottish Cup.

    You know, I actually had it in my head that was the case but thought that is so stupid it can't be the case.

    Why would we stay in a hotel for home games ffs?
