Makes you wonder what sort of salary he'll be getting there.

Any big pay package will probably be dependant on getting to EL group stages.

The kind of appointment we should be making instead of what we currently have IMO, and that's not a dig at Levein, i just think we have so much potential to be great.

I would expect a lot of quality loan signings at Killie as his contacts should be good. Killie could still be around the top four. We will need to get our signing act in gear this summer to hope to match them at least.

Very ambitious appointment.  Will give themselves a great chance of building on the success of Steve Clarke's reign.

They probably would’ve had Naismith if they did to be fair.  I think he always spoke about retiring there.

A great answer, again from Killie, to whoever poses the ridiculous question in future..."but who would we get?"

Could be a very good appointment. 

 

Crazy, that when we were looking to fill the same position, we failed to find someone better than the interviewer.

Certainly a bold appointment and to be applauded.

He has little recent experience as the main man but will have built up valuable knowledge etc as an assistant in the UK and abroad.

To think less than 2 years ago they had Lee McCulloch as manager.

If we had appointed him or even been linked with him the usual roasters wouldve looked for the negatives. Only ever been an assistant etc

that is why it is a bit of a risk. good assistants dont necessarily make good managers. i think the times he has been a manager he has lasted at most a year each time.

**** off. ? If Hearts gave this boy a gig  this place would be knee deep in snotters because he's never managed a club above Italian church league level. ?

Cool appointment although I wouldn't get carried away. Most number 2s start at about that level.

 

Certainly interesting for the league.

All of which where supported by some of our fans. 

 

Add in other ex Hearts men like McCann and Paulo Sergio and you can see why our fans lack the ambition that others have for their clubs.

This has makings of a great appointment. Cult figure in the making type thing if it goes well. 

 

Be interesting to see how their signings go this summer.

Incredible isn't it. 

 

Feel like killie could have hired an actual cone as manager and folk here would be all 'exciting appointment that, proper progressive wish we would do that'.

Don't get the frenzy over this appointment.  If it works out, fine but there is definitely no guarantee that it will and appointing someone who has predominantly been an assistant comes with a lot of risk.

 

As a Jambo, I'm not even slightly concerned.

It's a ****ing massive punt from Killie. Just as likely to **** them up royally as achieve any level of success. A guy with a presumably limited knowledge of the Scottish game, with effectively zero managerial experience. 

 

Gone by Easter is my prediction.

This. Could go either way. Scottish clubs don’t have a good track record with this sort of appointment.

I agree but sometimes it's the type of imaginative appointment smaller clubs must make - with fingers crossed.

I'd rather have that than what often happens in England where the likes of Big Sam and Tony Pullis hop from club to club after being fired for under-achievement.

An interesting one...certainly not without risk and clearly trying to follow the ‘Clarke’ model of an experienced number 2 (although Clarke had significantly more experience as number 1).

 

The caretaker period at Juventus is clearly the standout on the CV but in terms of a permanent number 1 this will be his highest level of football so far...

 

A bold move by Killie without doubt...

Shows real ambition and a statement of intent.

think it’s a brilliant appointment, and as alluded to above his contacts will be immense.

steve Clarke and now this. 

CL and co are going to be up against it this coming season that’s for sure.

It's an interesting one this. Had he been appointed manager at Celtic or Rangers 2012 then he'd be doomed from the start. It's ambitious for Killie to get someone like that in so it'll be very interesting to see what happens with them next season.

Clarke is also a renowned moaning faced number 3.

An interesting appointment and one that highlights the attraction of Scottish football.

Remind me of  Dundee a few years ago. 

 

Interesting, see where it ends up. 

 

Think he'll be a great success or a complete flop, not sure where Killie can go from where there are atm tbh, big task to Improve them.

Dyer stays as No 2. He could be the key man.

if their fans actually turned up and watched them they could be big-hitters relatively speaking. Unfortunately for Killie most folk in their catchment area will be wearing green or blue
