Yeah - guy was scouting for Preston.   Thought that Shankland owed a lot to the players around him, Guess he didn't see him often enough.  Also thought McDaid was better on the right than the left.

Reckon Preston might of been the club that made a bid for Shankland

The guy ‘scouting’ for Preston, if it’s the same one that was at the Airdrie game,  then it’s the same one that tipped Mickey Donald to be ‘a player’ and go on and do big things down south lol.

Once McDaid adds heading and tackling to his game he could be very good. Always thought he  seemed a bit precious at times, most notably at one of the Stranraer home games at home. Also needs to change that blonde thing on top of his head, it's an abomination.

I don’t think he’s that bad defensively. He doesn’t put in big tackles but he certainly gets back and helps his full back out. I was sitting in the stand on Saturday and you could hear McCall shouting from the directors box at McDaid to close the full back down.

I think his decision making could be better and he’s capable of putting brilliant crosses into the box at times but would rather look for an easy pass.

Always thought McDaid works very hard defensively tbh.

Wouldn't worry about McDaid being smuggled away by an English championship team quite yet. Scouts were looking at McGuffie at the start of last season and clearly didn't see enough. Both of them need to do a job at a higher level (i.e. the Scottish Championship) for a year before they're even considered. 

It's great to have young potential in the squad but I think we'll get at least another year out of them all. Including Shankland.

To be fair, Mickey Donald has moved to America, makes a shit load of money as Head coach for Florida F. C. Gets holidays all over the place for hee haw and is basically raking it in (His father is my neighbour and tells me so.)

As for Scouts at Somerset, that gives me the fear. With the talents of Shankland, Crawford and Mcdaid and Defensive capabilities of Rose and Harvie, Ayr is full of young talented players and are probably constantly being watched. Some 1984 shit right there. I'm of the hope that Ian Mccall ties them up before one or two slip away through the net to some obscure league one English pish, for money totally under their valuation. Which would be a total deflation of confidence within this team, if a few clearly valued members were to get sold. 

I hope that it is Ally Morrison, as he only scouts Tall Northern Irish players.

AFC Fylde (the team we beat in Pre season) were apparently the team who bid for Shankland.

Quite possibly, read on sky transfer centre they turned down a bid of £175k for a striker yesterday.....could have seen Shankland as a replacement and pocketed the change.

Being a good coach doesn’t have anything to do with the type of player you are/were. Many good coaches havn’t played at any level. Good luck to him anyway, nice bloke.

That’s great news. He’d have to be completely mental to move to a shite club like that, regardless of how much they’d pay him. A great season in the Championship and he should be looking well above that level.

The English have this ignorant arrogance about them just now (actually they've probably always had it), where they seem to think that everyone who plays in Scotland is hopeless and not worth any sort of gamble, even at cheap prices, as such I'd doubt very much if Shankland is even on the radar of Championship clubs due to their misplaced superiority complex.

All good for us though..............

Flyde in the conference are apparently the team who bid for Shankland, that makes me feel a bit better can't see him leaving to go there.

Joe Cardle has moved there, by all means it looks like they've got an incredible setup.
