A wee run to the Quarter finals like last year would do finishing in a game up at Celtic Park or Ibrox.

I’m sure McCall said a while ago that he had money left in case of an emergency but was maybe spending it on a midfielder (loan probably). Don’t know about him but I’d chuck it at Shankland. You then run the risk of two or three midfielders getting injured and no money for cover.

I just have this feeling we're going to get Celtic away in the next round.

Arbroath at home, well that's shite.

Winnable but I’d have preferred someone that we don’t play 4 times a season

Boring draw but one we should win

Why, are Arbroath contracted to play their development side.

I'd say ayr have a better squad than arbroath, wouldn't you? You only have to look at the current league positions

I'll go by the 2 games against them, they wouldn't bother playing games if league position was all that mattered.

The most recent being a 4-1 win away from home. As I've said already, ayr have a better squad and therefore should be able to win this game.

I think that was the game where we should have been trailing by a couple, our fanbase suddenly appears to full of billybigbaws.

Yeah they created a lot of chances but they still lost 4-1.
Looking at their squad and then at ours there’s not one player in the Arbroath team that would get in our team.

Thomas O’Brien is in my opinion the best centre half in the league. Scott Martin would surely get into your team too, guy should be on loan in the Championship never mind L1.

FWIW. The only Ayr players I would want are all strikers. Think that’s what separates you from the rest in a big way.

Wouldn’t be fussed about anyone else. Some other good players there, Crawford, Docherty and McDade but not sure I’d be wanting to give up any of our players for them.

O’Brien is a good centre half at this level but there are defenders in this league who could play in the Championship. Chris Higgins being one of them. Scott Martin wouldn’t get in our midfield ahead of Crawford, Docherty, Adams etc.

I’m not being arrogant but I genuinely believe there are only 2 or 3 players in this league that would get into our team.

O’Brien has played and captained a team in the Championship. Dundee United wanted him but he couldn’t do full time with his career. Martin is on the verge of Hibs first team and started a few games for them last season.

And you’re probably correct in a way cause it is a very good team you’ve got. But personally don’t think there’s anyone that’s that much better than a lot of the other teams.

Twice I’ve seen you lads now, and I think the real difference between yourselves and other teams is the guys you’ve got up top. Can be playing shite but got real class uptop that will get you goals. Backed up by a steady solid group of players then you can see why you’re doing well.

Moffat/Moore and Shankland being better than Buchanan/Vaughan and Spence could decide the title.

On the same park there's not between both teams, certainly not enough to say we should beat them.

Hardly acting the "billybigbaws" when I say that I expect ayr to beat arbroath at home. I'm sure most people including neutrals would bet on ayr to win after looking at the recent form of both teams and some of our recent performances eg raith at home. Can only assume you don't attend many games and are a member of the "mccall out" brigade.

Let's be honest here, Raith are playing shite at the moment, placing a bet on anything doesn't equate to "they should win", there are people backing 25/1 shots all day every day, they don't all think they should win.

For what it’s worth I think Ayr will win too. Maybe using the wrong term by saying expect though. Definitely favourites.

Of course they'll be favourites.
