  1. Another one with the fear here. Lose this and St Mirren could be two points behind if they win their game in hand. We have drawn or lost many games that could have been winnable, and scraped past two lower league sides in the cup. St Mirren have almost been a bit of a bogey side for us this season, when everyone else was beating them we failed to, and even lost to them in the cups. We have to play them twice before the end of the season, so each team could rightly say that their destiny is in their own hands. Heart says we can do it but to be honest I'll be amazed if we win. Come on ye Ayr!
  2. Football pundits, fans and managers love to endlessly watch replays to decide whether the ref made the right call. The ref, on the other hand, gets to see an incident happen once, in real time.
  3. Well done McCall, took his time but has managed to get in a couple of positive additions, at least on paper. Hopefully this will settle down the panic merchants on the SRE forum.
  4. I can't speak for the rest of the Ayr fans but all the ones I know wear a Gers shirt under their Ayr tops at every game. And we surreptitiously listen in to radio commentary to hear how our beloved sons of Orange are getting on in their match.
  5. A fiver is tremendous value, well done Ayr. Have a feeling we will sneak a win here.
  6. Disappointing to see Devlin throwing himself to the ground trying to get the Falkirk player sent off. No way for any Ayr player to act, let alone our captain.
  7. While I agree that the lack of a striker is worrying, and that Craig Moore is unlikely to be the answer to our prayers, we have to give McCall the benefit of the doubt and assume he will be able to sign someone who can enhance the team. I don't think any of us imagined we could get players of the quality of Balatoni and Harkins joining our part time squad, so it shows he is capable of making 'big' signings. That said, the team appears to be stagnating and we could really use a boost like a Stevo type signing could give us. No idea who that would be though! Still think we are capable of staying up quite comfortably but with the momentum that Dumbarton, Dunfermline and to a degree St Mirren have built up, we need to go on another good run asap.
  8. Ayr fans on here need to get over it. Clear red. And know one can know what would have happened if Adams had avoided a red, we might even have lost due to him scoring an OG in injury time!
  9. As an Ayr fan I have zero complaints about that red card. Not a dangerous tackle but about as late as they come, the ball must have been about 6 feet away from where Adams' tackled. Crazy decision to slide in like that, gave the ref no option.
  10. 400 away fans is about 40% of our average home fan attendances. Wonder which other clubs have such a high % of away support?. It's like Hibs taking over 5000 to away games.
  11. Funniest thing in the highlights is watching Higginbotham charging around like a possessed madman to grab the ball for both spot kicks.
  12. It certainly looked that way. He was unlucky as he probably would have cleared the ball if his leg didn't get stuck. Still a penalty though. Perhaps McCall can have a word with the defence about diving into tackles in the box - both penalties were avoidable.
  13. Nisbet's miss is of Chris Iwelumo proportions. The curse of the one footed player - he tried to use his favoured right foot when the cross just needed to be tapped in with the left.
  14. Not at the game but judging by the possession, shots on goal and corner count, it sounds like we dominated the game and played as if we were the home team. Great to see us doing that against a full time team who should comfortably be mid table or better. Yes, Raith are not on a good run according to their fans, but we've lost four games straight and this result and performance were exactly the type of response we needed. Onwards and upwards, starting with a return to Fife for our next league game. Would love to put one over our bogey team and increase the gap over them.
  15. Agreed. I fully expect St Mirren to win this. Happy to be proved wrong though.
