  1. Hope so. My main worry is the fact that in our last 2 games we have conceded the opener early. It usually isn't too big a worry in all honesty, but if Rovers have won on Sat and it happens again then nerves will kick in...
  2. Alloa vs Ayr

    We will still be (probably) starting a front 3 with 50 goals in all competitions between them. Mon Ayr!
  3. Alloa vs Ayr

    I'm not particularly disagreeing with you, i'm going whatever happens, as are you clearly, and probably the majority of folk who post regularly on here are the same. Glory hunting is spot on though - at any level, fans will follow success. The million dollar question is how to get the ones in question to become regulars, and attract new folk along who currently never go. Seeing this title through and then following it up with a good season next year would be a start...
  4. Alloa vs Ayr

    You know what it's like though - it's the same logic that sees bigger crowds for cup games against big teams etc. Look at the playoff semi v Stranraer for a perfect example. No way the crowd would have been that size had we lost 3-0 or something in first leg. I know of 2 or 3 folk who go to 3 or 4 games a season who arent booked on a bus yet, but if Sunday morning arrives and it's a possible title party i'd be astonished if they didn't end up going. That's got to be quite common
  5. Alloa vs Ayr

    Probably find theres a reasonable number waiting on the Raith result on Saturday too. Going up there to possibly win the league will sway quite a lot of folk who wouldn't usually go, as opposed to going up there to possibly end up a point adrift with a game to go.
  6. Alloa vs Ayr

    Just that we think it was reckless rather than malicious, but that the ref has to look at it again and agree it wasn't a red.
  7. Alloa vs Ayr

    'Hopes are high' that Geggan will be fit according to Ayrshire Post.
  8. Had a look on soccerbase, and he has 4 league yellows and 1 cup yellow so far. How many yellows is it for a suspension, assuming that the only chance of the red being overturned is by downgrading to a yellow?
  9. Well aye obviously and i'm sure we will be going up there to win. Considering we have hardly any defenders available we aren't exactly gonna play defensively haha. Was more meaning that even if Raith win on Saturday, a draw keeps us top going into the last game. If we go through there and get beat, knowing where either 1 or 3 points put us, then we can't really claim to have deserved to win league. For what its worth I think there will be a big reaction to Saturday and we will get a result. It's not making this week any less horrendous with regards to concentrating on work / life in general though.
  10. Ach, we managed a 2-1 win at Alloa in November, and that was with Ferguson playing the full game, Geggan and Crawford both off injured after 15 mins, and no Boyle, Adams, Bell or Kerr. Even if Geggs and Shanks miss out we should be going up here and getting a point at least if we think we deserve to be champions.
  11. Alloa vs Ayr

    Aye. Think you are spot on. Crawford and Kerr in middle with McDaid and Forrest wide. Obviously if Geggan makes it (don't know why but got a feeling he won't) then Forrest drops out for me and Crawford plays left.
  12. Alloa vs Ayr

    Was there any chat at the POTY night as to whether Geggan is likely to be fit?
  13. The Super v Stranraer FC

    Agreed. Since the cup defeat to Rangers our home form is Played 4, won 4, scored 13 conceded 0. That coupled with the position at the top of the league should be plenty to get folk along.
  14. Absolutely this. I'm 34 and a pressure free away day party celebrating something that's already won is something i've never experienced and would bloody love to. Edit - obviously I really hope it doesn't happen, but i'd say it's more likely that folk would cancel if we were going up there unable to clinch the title even with a victory
  15. Ah cheers - even worse then! Not to worry, just had a message back from Travel Club, seats on bus booked [emoji106]
