Kilmarnock yet again secured history last year as Steve Clarke guided them to European football for the first time in 18 years. He was then hired by Scotland, and has now been replaced by Italian legend Angelo Alessio. Unfortunately, Alessio is right up against it without a domestic ball having been kicked. After Killie's hard work and long wait to qualify for Europe, the new manager fell to Welsh minnows Connahs Quay Nomads in the first qualifying round. Supporters are furious with the Italian. That pressure, combined with failing to replace both Jordan Jones and Kris Boyd, is a major source of frustration. Boyd may have been in and out of the team, but Jones was essential to Killie's success. So far, just two signings have come in the Rugby Park door. Laurentiu Branescu has arrived on a season-long loan from Juventus. In addition to that, Mohamed El Makrini provides some competition for Alan Power and Gary Dicker in the centre of midfield. Eamonn Brophy will be the man to lead the line once again, but Killie don't have an out-and-out replacement for Jones at the moment. One big positive is how strong Killie's defence now looks heading into the new campaign. They've managed to fend off wolves for the likes of Stuart Findlay, Greg Taylor and Stephen O'Donnell. With Kirk Broadfoot also available, the backline of the Ayrshire side proves they'll be stubborn this year once again. But heading into the new campaign, Killie don't offer a lot going forward as it stands, and need to add more to the striking position as well as down the left flank. Fans are already baying for blood even this early on.

Target


With so much change at Kilmarnock, a similar season like last seems impossible. A top-six place and Angelo Alessio can be pleased with himself.

Season Review
2018/2019

№3: Kilmarnock

An incredibly historic season for Kilmarnock ended with the Ayrshire side securing third place and European football for the first time over 20 years. Steve Clarke went into the season on the back of finishing fifth, with many expecting them to either fall away or only achieve similar success. Clarke came into the campaign having kept the core of the squad that was so successful last season. Just two wins in the opening six league games had many thinking they were spot on in their expectations of Killie falling away. But Clarke just knew how to get the best out of them. His side grew in confidence as the campaign went on, with Killie losing just a further two of 16 games before the winter break. Bringing in Youssouf Mulumbu helped seriously bolster the midfield in the summer, and the midfield trio of he, Gary Dicker, and Alan Power helped push Killie on into the second-half of the season. Even going forward, Eamonn Brophy made up for his lack of goals with surreal energy and determination. He created so much with his movement, and Clarke was managing to instill a selfless aproach throughout his squad. Two victories over Rangers and one over Celtic continued their fine reputation against the big guns too. With such competency and efficiency in every position, it turned into a real positive campaign in the end. The cup competitions continue to be elusive for Killie. Betfred and Scottish Cup defeats to Rangers were excusable, particularly as they continued to wow everyone with their discipline and ability to grind out big results. In the end, Clarke managed to beat Rangers once again and pip Aberdeen to third plce. An incredible feat for Killie, who now go into next season trying to find a replacement for the outgoing Clarke, who has been appointed as the new Scotland manager. Player departures feel inevitable, but what way Killie go next season is now up in the air. They are, however, Europe bound.
