  1. Don’t quite see it like this , only lost one game at home in the league this season and that was a freak show against Inverness , a game we could have 5-1 or 6-1 ... yes our team is weakened at the back with Frankie and Alex out . However this season is a bit different to the norm . It seems to be more what we do when on the ball rather than what we do off it . Chances are Rovers will score one or two but we are the divisions top scorers with the divisions top scorer . I expect us to win and Dipo to be amongst the scorers . Then it’s a free week then two games until the window where two or three will be coming in . Could be nearly time to believe ...
  2. A win against Pollok pushes the prize/tv money up from £13k to £45k . So best not to dick around with the team too much . £45k would come in very handy in the window indeed ...
  3. Steve Lawson from Accies and Liam Grimshaw from Morton would be a decent start to the window . .
  4. The hospitality building could be rebuilt in the car park with an area of the stand set aside for viewing the game . Also it could herald a return to the Railway End for the Ayr support , it being the bigger end ...
  5. Dipo seems to play his best stuff when McKenzie is on the field . If we can find a physical type like him that can also score goals and a similar upgrade to our fullbacks then we would be pretty sorted . I’m not suggesting getting rid of McKenzie , Houston or Reading . More like buying them more time while strengthening the team .
  6. In an ideal world we would be bringing in two full backs a central midfielder and a goal scoring second striker . Pity Nicky Devlin , Danny Harvie , Kerr McInroy and Tomi Adeloye are all under contract elsewhere . Seriously though this league might just be there for the taking , a year or two early in the project nevertheless but it’s there for taking . Next four games are massive ....
  7. So the curse of the manager and player of the month struck again , our boys thought they were Manchester City and they just had to turn up and Rovers would roll over . Not going to happen in this league , harsh lesson learned (hopefully) . Loads of issues all over the park yesterday , most have already been covered . The positive I take at the moment is that we have played most of the teams in the league , the two Thistles aside , and are no worse than any of them and better that a few of them . When we get our A Game out we are pretty tasty . However we are no world beaters and need to remember that and get the sleeves rolled up every week from the first whistle.. As many have said ,Thursday is an opportunity to give Ecripont , Mullin , Bangala ,Smith etc a run out . Also it’s a chance to have a good look at Brad Young and Dipo up front . This might just be our best option up front , the boy looked superb yesterday when he came on . Anyway onward and upward , bring on the Cally ....
  8. Tough game yesterday , we didn’t play well but we might have sneaked off with a point we didn’t really deserve . Too many below par performances from us . Fair play to Rovers the better team won . Look forward to December 3rd at our place , let’s see if we can correct ourselves for that game .
  9. There are a huge number of differences between us and Arbroath , either a wind up or a lazy post m8 . Anyway looking forward to Saturday and hopefully a decent crowd , be interesting to see if we go above 4,000 . Hopefully we have everyone fit and Dipo and Mark can push on their partnership to the next level .
  10. Ecrepont has to get a chance sooner rather than later . I think the best of Reading is in attack , so if Finn can handle left back then it’s a no brainier to push Paddy up to left midfield.
  11. I’d be tempted to give JML and Fraser another chance on Saturday , knowing full well that the Accies players won’t fancy a fresh Daire running at them in the heat in the second half . Although I would understand if Bullen went with the second half 11 from Friday night . My prediction, 2-0 Ayr with Dipo raising his total .
  12. The McCall era only went golden when Sandy arrived but it’s fair to say it was a partnership that produced an excellent team for a couple of seasons . Great days , especially considering our budget at the time , all be it a full time one . The low point was Talbot in the cup where we refused to get down in the mud and scrap for our lives . High point obviously Dundee United away , where we butchered one of the country’s top clubs on their own manor . in my opinion Sandy’s Queens Park displayed both those extremes in one 90 min match on Friday . So it highs and lows with that brand of football in 5he Championship . Bullen hasn’t got us to where he wants us yet , Friday was brilliant but so was the second half at Rugby Park . The issue is some of the rotten performances in between . Saturday will tell us a lot about the current team . They have enough in the locker to beat Hamilton , question is can they get their physical pressing style out for 90 mins ? We’ll know soon enough . The future is bright though , stick with it fellas ...
  13. Think your right on Scott Alan , I think these kind of signings may come in good time , maybe after the North Bank is finished . On Cammy Smith , think David Smith was putting the deal together for Cammy to return and Hopkins blew a fuse . so the boy thought better not sign if the manager didn’t fancy it . So Smith might be open to it if Cammy is available and Bully rates him . All guess work but they are definitely doing their due diligence on somebody ..
  14. I would be looking at extending that deal sooner rather than later . On Dipo though , he does appear to be more effective with a partner . So I’d be keeping it simple in a 442 for the next two or three games . However the arrival of the ghost might offer something different in therms of formation and shape .
