Timmins was training the youth team goalkeepers earlier in the week, maybe he's just buying time to his contract is up though, was there not talk at one time of Jimmy Nicholl as assistant they would both been at Dunfermline about the same time.

The club output last year was woeful and caused a lot of the issues to escalate. 
We narrowly avoided relegation and most of the team were leaving, Hopkin had a rebuilding job on and there was no social media output. It looked like nothing was going on and compared to previous years, the support were being kept in the dark.
We were told by Robbo on here most of the updates. Like nothing was going to happen for a couple of weeks as Hopkin was on holiday. Then they were announcing players when he came back along with the season tickets. The season tickets were announced but no players. Then Hopkin went on holiday again. So when it looked like nothing was going on and the fans were being kept in the dark, it turns out there was nothing going on. 
Bullen and Mathie are due time off and the fans have been kept up to date so far, albeit from the VOR rather than the club. There is a sense currently that we have our shit together now and we have a plan in place that wasn’t there last season so more people are relaxed about what is happening. There isn’t a sense that the club is shutting down for 6 weeks and will worry about players and season tickets some time in late July.
whether that continues or the plan actually works is anther matter.
Did Hopkin go on holiday aye? Don't think you've mentioned that before

He asked Jimmy Nicholl and also Frank Connor (I think) but both although interested sadly had to decline due to other commitments. NI in the case of Nicholl and family in the case of Connor (incidentally, I think he just passed away if the same guy).

I'm sure that he said that they had already identified a couple of other targets but that they wouldn't be available until the Summer, but it definitely seems like an old head that Bullen is after.

The holiday gets longer every time he mentions it as well.

Think it was Donald Park not Frank Conner.

Yes, I think you're right, I've no idea where I got Frank Connor from. Actually was he not our assistant when Dalziel was here ? or am I just imagining that ??

Connor was one of Dalziel's assistants. Whenever things started to go wrong he replaced his sidekick.

How are we expecting Ecrepont to do this year ? I saw him at Wrexham a couple of years ago and thought he'd have a decent career ahead of him, however he's never broken through and not sure how he did at Albion Rovers when loaned out.

I was always hoping we'd give him a chance as there definitely looked a player in there from the little I've seen of him and he always seems to have been highly rated, but just a surprise that he's not made that breakthrough.

Hopefully Bullen sees something there and gives him a chance. At one point he was probably expected to step into the left back slot when Harvie left. Reading signing didn't help and not sure the whole situation was thought through. Definitely needs to start playing so best to sort a loan move if the first team chances are limited

I'd like to think he'll get some time in the league cup games, even playing Reading further forward. If he's not going to be second choice then he would be better going out on loan.

Similarly, I thought Ecrepont looked good away to Wrexham. Strangely, I don't think I've seen him play since. He really needs games and I would agree that loaning him out may be the best bet for him and the club.

Redding has commented on Fjortofts Post on twitter about leaving and it's reads like he will be at the club next season.

What does it say?

To me him saying sad to see him leave means he will still be there next season, if he was off as well he wouldn't be there to see him, then again I could be putting 2 and 2 together and getting 50b5ff7a9638091ffc1b40b5cfdac6101.jpg

I read that the same way. Think he will be re-signed

Was looking at potential signings for the season coming, wetting my knickers over players coming to Ayr that probably won't ever materialise.

(I was over the moon when Chalmers signed, how wrong I was 🙄 f*cking Charlatan, enjoy league one.) 

What's the chances of us getting lumbered with Leigh Griffiths? 😬
