  1. Noticed Tranmere have released Logan Chalmers back to his club.
  2. Frustrating thing was we had a larger home support at the game than we had in many a year. I think most would have not expected us to overturn the 3-0 lead but they would have expected us to put up a fight. We had a half chance in the opening minutes but apart from that did not threaten to score. Partick Thistle could have another 4 or more goals and they took their foot off the gas late on. In the first game Mullin was close to getting sent off after around 20 minutes when he pushed a Thistle player and Dipo did the same thing around 20 minutes too and got sent off. Daft lack of discipline... Just a horrid week to be an Ayr fan.
  3. Curious to know what folk think will happen with Mullin. He was on TV for the BBC game against QP as a guest while he was injured. It seemed like he would be with us to the season end and then move elsewhere. I thought he was poor on Friday night, got booked early on and then substituted early too. Is he a player that we should be doing all we can to keep?
  4. Hard to believe that we drew with PT a few weeks ago. They looked much better than us in every department and they could/should have scored a number more.
  5. Probably unfair to expect him to come straight in after a lengthy injury but still good to have him around. Could maybe see him playing a part if we get through against Thistle/QP.
  6. Wonder whether Kirk will be available to play in any of our ties. Impressed that he is making his way back to the club and that Arsenal have allowed him to return.
  7. I thought O'Connor caused QP more trouble than anyone last night. I would like him to stay though doubtful it will happen. I also wonder whether some English clubs will come in for McGinty as was reported over the last transfer window.
  8. No matter what you think of the league, it has been unbelievably competitive this season. Each team has three games left and six clubs can still fill one of the four top positions. At the other end of the table, there are three team trying to avoid the bottom two slots. It looks like Raith are the only team that are unlikely to be involved in the promotion or relegation battles. Will be interesting to see if any of this is sorted out this weekend.
  9. I thought we won the Darlington game comfortably but the game against Blyth Spartans was closer. Looking back through the archives online it says we drew both games 0-0? Normal preseason games though with players being changed out frequently. I stood near Connor during the Darlington game and you could tell he had a real passion even in these friendly games. Left the games thinking that Ayr looked a decent squad and think that was the season we went to the League cup final?
  10. I always wondered whether how much of Ayr's success that season was down to Frank Connor. Ayr stayed in Durham pre-season that year and played games against Blyth and Darlington. I talked to a few Ayr players and remember Neil Duffy saying that Connor had been training them as hard as he could remember.
  11. Tonights game felt very similar to the losses to QP, Falkirk, & Partick Thistle (did not see the Dundee game). Nothing much to be encouraged about from Ayr. Arbroath just looked a more skilful and better team. Hope the BBC don't show us again this season....
  12. Queens Park have a tough remaining 6 games with 4 away games at Raith, Partick, Ayr & Morton. Their two homes games are against Hamilton & Dundee. Their last game against Dundee could well be the decider.
  13. Not blaming McAdams at all tonight but can anyone understand the thinking between playing him in an important cup tie when he has hardly played all season. Very disappointing tonight but not a shock result since we have looked poor since the New Year. We struggled against Pollock & Elgin and Falkirk looked the better team after about 20 mins or so. I was surprised Bullen did not bring new coaching staff when he joined the club and still wonder whether someone like Scally or Sandy Stewart could improve things on the pitch.
  14. Did not see why Daire was sent off today. Disappointing & hard on the team to lose him so early in the game. I thought we were better than we were a few weeks and the players worked hard following the sending off. We lost the midfield for much of the game though and tbh ICT could have scored a few more if their strikers were in form/better.. Can't see us getting back into a play off place in our current form.
  15. The Ayr fan up a tree got a mention on “Have I got news for you”.
