  1. The SFA went out of their fucking way to request it from UEFA.
  2. Fair play, it is genuinely difficult to sustain a solid boo for a full 60 seconds and the tartan army managed it. f**k the BBC.
  3. also if you wore it after Christmas you'd slip into a deep coma occasionally punctuated by messy bowel interruptions.
  4. "Most" is a very weird hedge there. Even given the tendency for oddballs on football forums to die on weird hills, there's no such thing as a Hopkin diehard. The best that could be said is that for whatever reason, the actual results barely improved on average after he was punted until very recently, but for once this can't be attributed to a Cunning Long Term Plan as the club was very open from an early stage about what that plan was (especially after snagging Bullen).
  5. There is absolutely zero chance that Police Scotland would turn down the opportunity for easy overtime, or that the SFA would ever do anything the FA didn't do unless it was of direct benefit to the Old Firm. So basically games will only be on if the blazers can be convinced that the fixture backlog will somehow adversely affect their European campaigns.
  6. Well I mean as of today we'll never be able to interrogate the chief suspect, will we.
  7. The racing?? They might cancel that until the coronation.
  8. Badge gets changed back the minute she's in the ground. f**k the Lord Lyon.
  9. Stewart is the only one who ever challenges fucking dinosaurs like Willie Miller or dares to suggest that the Old Firm aren't the centre of the universe outside of very narrow old-club allegiances. Unsurprising considering he's literally the only person on a BBC contract who backed independence.
  10. Dundee is also an actual city, as opposed to a Tory experiment in turning a town with multiple industries stretching back 500+ years into a Glasgow commuter hub with a nice wooded suburb to build million-quid houses on. Literally the only people who weren't born there who know Ayr now are the Norn Irish.
  11. Categorically was not. The fapping about the new stand and backroom was readily balanced by Stevo repeatedly stating his desire for Kilmarnock to get relegated, which isn't something you hear otherwise on any TV coverage. Also the constant chanting from downstairs. Edit: also, it's a nice feeling for the praise for the club not to centre entirely around the notion that it isn't all plastic fucking seats, or that it gets the sun in the afternoon.
  12. Macintyre's a worse host (and doesn't bother trying to do regular updates instead of keeping up some banal debate), but then Richard Gordon was superb. In terms of Championship coverage they're always limited by how many of the old boys can be persuaded to put the trip on expenses: Ayr are actually luckier than some in that regard as one or the other of Chick Young or Derek Ferguson usually raise their hands for games at Somerset.
  13. A poor result would have been getting beat. They might be at the foot of the table but five of their six games so far have been against the top five. I don't know that it was a "great result" at the time anyway, so much as that a mediocre draw against a team in the same division is at least a step up from getting ridden senseless by a team destined to stink up the bottom half of the league below.
  14. I mean there's a difference between a random punter being happy with a draw (which would keep Ayr above Thistle in the table) and, say, the manager being happy with a draw (see the absolute garbage on display over the course of the previous two seasons).
  15. The danger in whining about missed chances as a manager is that it's your job to get the players to stop fluffing their lines. Before Akinyemi got his shooting boots laced right (right as the season began, fortunately) it was almost looking like there would be a running joke as to when if ever he'd finally score a goal, such were the dozens and dozens of missed opportunities in the League Cup. Likewise, it's probably far more sensible to whine about missed chances for players who are demonstrably good enough to have made them (the aforementioned Akinyemi) and not the same jobbers who have been missing them for years. But then I'm no football manager.
  16. If Ayr were at the bottom of the table instead of the top, the stupid fickle fans would want it changed! Imbeciles!! If a hiding at the weekend would put you back in your fucking box the club would have to seriously consider it. tbqh Ayr is in such a desperate mess as a town these days that it's unsurprising that drug use in the pubs is hilariously conspicuous.
  17. 4k crowd and McCall's usual habit of bottling it against his old teams will do nicely. At least three players to be smuggled pre-contract agreements at half time.
  18. While it's true that the change in tactics from "immediately shell it to Adeloye" has brought more players into the game, it's still at the stage where people are in outright disbelief that e.g. McKenzie has scored a goal. It's going to be a while before it truly feels like the team could keep up the current pace if it lost Akinyeme.
  19. The squad is threadbare and there will be January offers for half of them. There's a long way to go. Uncle Ian's devastators couldn't win the division and they scored five goals every other week.
  20. Ayr aren't going to win the league. However after 40 points at least attention can go to places other than the drop zone.
  21. Forest Green did this (even went as far as banning meat from the pie stalls) but they had the excuse that Dale Vince was a multimillionaire who was funding everything, as opposed to a complete charlatan.
  22. Every defeat is bad. Should be playing to win the Challenge Cup just like anything else. Absolutely horrible mentality to think otherwise.
