  1. I initially hated the collar but have already come round to it. Must be a grower. Away top looks weird frankly. Or maybe it just looks weird on Craig Moore.
  2. Has there been any mention of how we are actually planning on funding the full time football? I would think that removing Harkins from the wage bill is crucial to the overall budget. Despite his reputation I'm sure there are still plenty of clubs who would happily take a punt on him.
  3. When we look back on this season, it can't be a surprise to any of us that we will finish bottom. We got promoted by the skin of our teeth and retained the bulk of a side that struggled to earn that promotion. We have an absentee chairman who does not want to be in control of the club but is unwilling to relinquish until a better option comes along. I actually admire that stance, if that is indeed his motivation. He has a track record of standing by managers, probably for far too long in the case of Mark Roberts, so we can assume that McCall will not be sacked. The only way he will leave is if he chooses to go. As it stands at the moment, unless there is somehow significant change off the park I can't see how we are ever going to progress from being an upper league one/lower championship club.
  4. Based on previous away games this year, I reckon we are looking at taking probably 400 - 600 max. If there was any sort of confidence within the fans we'd probably take another 200 or so on top but I think everyone is going in hope more than expectation.
  5. Of course the above would be absolutely true except Dumbarton are currently doing - and have been in previous years - a fine job of showing how staying in the division can be achieved with part time players.
  6. Love the passion in McCall's interview! Makes a refreshing change from the platitudes that most managers trot out. That said, at times I wonder if he's the full shilling
  7. Can't really blame Boyle for the miss, the defender was in the right place at the right time. The fact our goal difference is the worst in the league effectively means we need every point we can get. A draw tonight would've done wonders for confidence going into Saturday's game. Saturday is the day for everyone at the club to step up - supporters, players, management, everyone needs to give it their all against St Mirren. A win there will really put them in a dire position. Come on ye Ayr!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. A fiver is tremendous value, well done Ayr. Have a feeling we will sneak a win here.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
