  1. Buchanan was pretty good for us...all of our players were crap against you
  2. Would have probably won the the game if your guy hadn't been sent off...bad bad tackle in what wasn't a dirty game
  3. Nade for me....knock down for Stewart's gial, then cross for Froxy's
  4. Probably best in the number 10 role...strong runner with the ball, and the kind if guy who gives 110% He struggled last season with his fitness, and as a result we didn't see the best of him, and when he did play, I felt he was trying too hard Persist with him, and hopefully you'll see what he has to offer
  5. I'm not his biggest fan, but still feel giving him a 5 yesterday is a little harsh...keepers always have to juggle coming for a ball or staying on their line...fine margins I remember the one where their centre forward got "injured"....was that not down to a poorly hit backpass?
  6. Seems a little harsh on Scott Gallagher...didn't really have much to do yesterday
  7. Horrible first half...deservedly behind....much better again though when we tried to actually attack their goal Nice equaliser from Wilson then peach of a free kick from Froxy Special mention though to the opposition...never in all my years of watching football have I seen a more cynical team...how they only got one red card is amazing...time wasting...numerous cynical fouls..especially the number 16....I also can't remember an opposition team getting booed off the park Much better after the first half..let's keep that going for the rest of the season
  8. Not really..I got my headlight smashed a few seasons ago coming into the car park [emoji35]
  9. Pleased with a point yesterday...looks like we'll be hard to beat with a really strong defence this season...concern is where are the goals going to come from My motm was Wilson..didn't really show up on the highlights, but really solid performance Great goal from young Roy too
  10. I'm not happy with the pricing structure, but am not sure greed is the reason, as presumably the money raised goes to the team /club rather than the chairman I would assume it is more likely that with a smaller fanbase, we are simply trying to level the playing field a bit and compete with the likes of QotS
  11. Don't try and compare the number of posts with any Ayr utd thread...There are a number of utter fuds on there who clog them up with utter drivel...check out any thread involving Ayr
  12. it'll be fine so long as all their players are called James Lammond or Ferguson Oliver
  13. do championship teams not need to have the players names at the top on the back?
  14. I'd say we're stronger than we started last season, but weaker than we finished Hopefully a couple of good loans will help
  15. I have to say I wasn't particularly impressed....I kept waiting on seeing a premiership class player...and other than occasional glimpses...he didn't do enough to me Nowhere near the quality of Stirling or Vaughan or Stanton
  16. it is the nature of Scottish football - I would imagine there will be a few other teams in the championship reducing budgets, e.g. Dunfermline (after losing Raith). Personally I would prefer that we as a club break even each season. We don't have a rich sugar daddy so we will just continue to do what we've done for the past 5 years. I do wonder though whether or not the budget reduction is significant, given that Stevie Aitken was happy to sign up to 2 year deal - perhaps it was his best option if the Raith job wasn't going his way...we'll never probably know I don't think though that the budget reduction has any bearing on any potential stadium move. All sides seem to have acknowledged that it will only happen if its financially viable. I have no objection in principle to a move, provided the Sons Trust get the transparency and reassurances they are seeking. And by that, I would hope to see concrete proposals that the club get a share of / all the potential additional non football related income. This would actually allow us to grow the club
  17. disappointing about Buchanan, but probably to be expected when he didn't sign up in the initial batch of players I guess its a sign of how well we did last season that our best players are moving up to bigger and full time clubs still hoping Barr signs on - him and Ben Gordon could make quite a good pairing
  18. It could just be that Aitken wants to see his budget for next season before committing?
  19. I would say Vaughan did pretty well...maybe 7/10 Always tried really hard...perhaps sometimes too hard...had a habit of trying to beat one extra man and losing it sometimes Scored some good and important goals though, and I'd be happy to have him back on loan next season
  20. Sad to see Garry go, but probably inevitable given his lack of game time this season Given St Mirren offered him a contract previously, I would assume he was one of our top earners He has totally been a Dumbarton legend these last few years Slightly more surprised to see Docherty leaving It looks to me though that Aitken is staying...i can't imagine the board would sanction new contract offers if they thought a new manager was coming in
  21. Nope...Thomson is signed with us Difficult conditions yesterday...swirling wind and hard pitch made playing football on the ground difficult..and it showed...pretty dire game We clearly set out to make sure we didn't get pumped...sensible option...although unlikely...it wasn't impossible Raith could score a load against Ayr - similar tactic to taking ball into corner for final few minutes Disappointed I have to say with Falkirk...you will need to play much better than that to get through the playoffs...but good luck to you
  22. We haven't really played well against you other than the 2-2 game The fact that you've taken 8 points off us surely points to the fact that we've been better against the other teams in the league It's going to be an interesting and nervewracking end to the season
  23. Probably a borderline red, but Charleston is a fud..and Docherty's feigned injury probably ensured the red..what a disgusting player Thought Ayr probably deserved the victory....we looked as though Nade had pulled out minutes before kick off and didn't really have a plan b....balls into the box for either Stirling or Gallagher were pointless....I would have put Thomson in there for at least a bit of presence Good goal for us, but probably all that Vaughan did all day We didn't really handle al alagui all day, and the timing of the equaliser was a sore one Good second goal from Ayr, but sparky really sold it with his diving in taking Smith out in the process Thomson should have scored after great work from Stanton We probably played our best football when down to ten men
