and the current Johnstone Burgh coach is the first to admit it.
But McKim is enjoying his stint at Keanie Park, although he was gutted when last Saturday's top-of-the-table Central District Second Division clash with Cambuslang was called off.
Burst pipes put paid to the match-up between two sides who were once kings of the game – and former Scottish Cup winners to boot.
Burgh trail leaders Maryhill by nine points, but have five matches in hand, and McKim doesn't want to be playing catch-up at the end of the season.
He said: "In the past, Keanie Park has been notorious for having games called off, but we've actually had more away games cancelled this season than at home.
"That's why it was really frustrating when we got to the ground and discovered burst pipes had flooded the dressing rooms, toilets and hall.
"It wasn't a completely wasted Saturday though, because the coaching staff split into two groups and went to watch four of our rivals in action."
Burgh host bottom dogs Newmains on Saturday, before facing third-bottom Royal Albert the week after.
McKim insisted both games are winnable, but that more importantly, the club start to fulfil some of their fixtures. Rossvale, who sit just one place above Burgh, have played eight games more than McKim's men.
He said: "The last thing we want to be doing is playing three games a week when the light nights come in.
"There are three promotion places up for grabs, and I think we're good enough to fill one of them, but it becomes that bit harder if we have to fit a lot of games in."
McKim insisted Burgh were now good enough to hold their own in the First Division, as the last time they sealed promotion it came just a bit too early for his young players.
He added: "We still have a number of players from that season and they are older and more experienced now, so they will cope better if we get promoted.
"I think our style is suited to the higher league, where the majority of teams like to get the ball down and pass it."
The former left-sided striker admitted he was still in love with the game, despite calling time on his playing career more than 20 years ago.
After starting out at Pollok, he moved across the city to Govan, where he became Benburb's all-time top scorer with 320 goals.
He laughed: "I still love my football and I'm delighted to be involved at Burgh – although you always miss playing and think you could do better than the players you're watching.
"What frustrates me sometimes these days is that a lot of players are full of party tricks, but struggle to take part in a proper game of eleven-a-sides.
"In my day, anyone indulging in these acts would have been booted straight up into the stand – defenders didn't suffer circus acts gladly!
"Football really has changed. I took a bit of punishment as a striker but my saving grace was that I was lightning quick.
"Occasionally I got caught though, and never more seriously than when an opponent stuck the nut on me two feet away from the referee – and fractured my skull in the process.
"The game was full of characters in those days, and you could have a bit of banter with refs – something that is sadly lacking from the game today.
"I'm glad to still be involved, because I would miss my Saturday afternoon football terribly. I've been involved virtually my whole life, so it would be difficult to walk away."
