The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread


Recommended Posts

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 ...

On a different note just looking at the match reports from the u18s it wouldn't surprise me if one of the big academies from down south came in for Max Guthrie, I know it's happened to youngsters from Kilmarnock, Celtic, Rangers, Dundee Utd ect, but this kid is apparently on fire. Hope he stays and progresses but these clubs are willing to throw good money at kids up here, might tempt the board........thoughts?

He is a very good prospect and the good thing is we have him on a 2 year contract

Hope he goes onto be a star , I was part of his coaching team when he played for his school team and won the Wellington trophy in his last season at Doonfoot Primary , ( I want some of the credit 😁😁)

I'm curious on our history of being full time prior to the Barr era can anyone give a timeline on that.  Certainly in my memory its only been in the last 5 years that the club have been full time without a massive benefactor.  

 

I'm pretty sure we went full-time prior to the start of the 89-90 season. If not, it was 90-91. Before that it would've been before WWII.

Credit given 😁 hope we nurture him for a bit longer, but these big clubs look upon it as a small gamble to be paid, let's keep him for longer though coz I've only heard great reports about him, seems to have all the attributes and thankfully the club are more geared up for developing and keeping their own talent, but I wouldn't be surprised.

I had a dream last night we signed Stephen Kelly for an undisclosed fee from Rangers on a 3 year deal 😂 scenes btw if that actually happened

Hate the idea of giving that lot anything other than the middle finger.

Would be great to see Kelly back, though feel he's already proved better than this level.

Re the streaming update from the club, anyone know of a decent free VPN??

Isn't free but Nord VPN is seemingly most reliable - I have the option to buy the subscription but at £200 I am wary in case it doesn't work 😂

I use surfshack and got a special offer in November last year , £49 for 2 years , still think it’s available at a decent price and I have had no issues with it

My concern is I am buying this subscription from "New York" but paying for it from a bank on Ayr High Street and it gets rumbled.

 

It is for my Dad who can't physically attend any more and one blessing from Covid was allowing him to see his team again, do you think the club would turn a blind eye if folk do this as it will benefit them also in extra 'season ticket' type sales?

It’s a bit of a shambles that they ended it before they had a subscription service set up.

Clubs would, I assume be making money off of it, if there is a deal to be done with a broadcaster to allow clubs to steam games then the SPFL should have that concluded before now.

People will find dodgy streams or the live betting feeds and no one will get money, I dare say the problem is that the SPFL or someone else wants a slice and they want to make sure they get it even if clubs suffer.

Holy shamoly, Leigh this is a mistake. Assumed when Australia was mentioned it was the ALeague not a state league, Mandurah is to Perth what Ayr is to Glasgow, this is like signing for Troon, wow. Career over.

His career has been finished for a while now.

Absolute walloper of a boy.

Was all for buying a streaming season but was put off by the price. I know it’s about a tenner a game but the streaming seems expensive as a lump sum. It’s less games but I can go to watch Perth Glory for the same all season (355AUD)

Only two games left of the state league here, maybe there’s another move in it when the ALeague starts in October.

It's a UEFA rule which was suspended during the pandemic. It is now being enforced again.
