  1. Airdrie v The Invincibles

    Not particularly. You lot seem to have taken victory very, very badly. Raging that your big team lost at Rugby Park.
  2. Airdrie v The Invincibles

    I would never condone such a thing, quite the opposite. I condemn it, if it actually happened. But since Airdrie fans have as much credibility as Donald Trump I will hold my judgement. You lot were far more civilised when you were Clydebank.
  3. Airdrie v The Invincibles

    How can you expect that when most of your keyboard warriors are intent on dishing abuse to the father of one of your on loan players? Those knuckles must be raw.
  4. Airdrie v The Invincibles

    It's true. He did see a young boy sitting outside in the rain.
  5. Ayr v QP

    It was a foul. Hart had his hands on the ball when he was clattered.
  6. Kilwinning Rangers 17/18

    It's also up to the ref to stop the game if he thinks it's a serious injury, so there is no onus on a player to play it out. Thought Spence's were a bit bizarre, sour grapes obviously. Referring to Mick Wardrope as a wee boy was condescending and disrespectful, even more so when he played about 20 times for Ayr. Noticed that the report kept referring to Kilwinning as Rangers. I've never met anyone who calls them Rangers.
  7. Kelty Hearts & the EOS League

    I doubt many of the boys (and girls) who play for Bonnyton's teams live in Bonnyton. And it's not that far from housing, Townholm, Dean and New Farm Loch are all pretty close to the ground. I take your point though, there are a number of established sides nearby and establishing a support will be difficult unless they can climb the leagues.. Good luck to them, they have fairly big plans.
  8. Welsh non league doesn't count.
  9. The Red Lichties vs Honest Men

    I wouldn't go with the BBC stats, they are often inaccurate. Hutton saved a shot from Crawford during the first half, and I'm sure Moff got a touch on the cross which Hutton played off Gold. He was definitely at fault for the first, and possibly the fourth but to be fair Moore hit his shot with a hell of a lot of power. All in all though, Hutton is far from the best keeper in the division.
  10. From what I heard this was far from the case. Perhaps a misundestanding of the Ayr bid by some disappointed Saintees. However history is history and you can bet that the SFA are determined to exclude a most clubs from elite status now.
  11. I think your way off here matey. I am unaware of anyone from Ayr United being on said committee, and even if they were the SFA wouldn't be as stupid to allow them to take part in the decision making process. As for facilities, perhaps, but there is a bit more to elite level than just that. It's about having the right people, with the right qualifications within the right structure. Maybe that's where St Johnstone fell down. As for your suggestion about regional teams that's exactly what happens with Fife and Forth Valley. But how do you decide on the regions? Ayrshire may be considered too small, so would we join with Renfrewshire / Inverclyde / D&G? What about Partick Thistle, because the bigot brothers would never agree to be part of that structure? As a football fan I want to see boys come through the club systems, not from some draft nonsense that the big clubs would still dominate. And as an Ayr United fan I'm immensely proud that we now have a player being picked regularly for the Scotland u16 squad.
  12. St Johnstone may have won an u17s league but it wasn't the elite level league as they aren't currently part of it. From what I hear the SFA seem to be making up criteria as they go along and shifting goalposts as they see fit. They are only interested in the chosen few and don't seem to realise how damaging this will be to the vast majority of clubs. It could also mean that boys from large parts of Scotland are disadvantaged because they don't live in or near Glasgow, Edinburgh or Aberdeen. There are currently two elite academies in Ayrshire, which means that boys can go to school, train and play locally. And let's face it neither Murray Park or Lennoxtown are convenient locations for boys coming up from Ayrshire to train 3 nights a week or whatever it is (and yes, I know some do but that's not the point). The second tier grade academies, which are likely to be a number of the current elite academies, will still be able to play against the chosen few but how long before their funding is reduced and shifted to the big boys and they are effectively relegated?
  13. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    Sunday isn't an option this year as the air show is on both Saturday and Sunday. Last year it was Friday / Saturday and we played Airdrie at home on the Sunday. A neutral venue is not required as Somerset Park is available. Just not that weekend. Police will have advised not to play the game at the weekend due to the other, much, much bigger event. You would think that Montrose have never played a midweek game away from home before. The decision has been made, so no matter how much moaning there is, it won't be changed. You can either come along and cheer your team on you stay at home and get updates by text or from Twitter. No big deal really. And Ayr is about 35 miles from Glasgow, not much more than Montrose to Dundee. We might be a bit closer than you think.
  14. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    What's the big deal? I've been to Links Park twice, both were midweek games. And Ayr were part-time for the most recent of these. The transport networks will be extremely busy on both the Saturday and Sunday, meaning that your team and fans would have to leave very early to get to Somerset on time, and wouldn't get out of Ayr any time soon after full time. Besides, not playing at the weekend will mean a bigger crowd and more gate money. And it's a 19.45 kick off.
  15. East Stirling v Ayr United Reserves

    Waite was involved in the build up to at least 2 of the goals, Faulds was MOM and Murphy and McCowan both scored. That's good enough for me.
