The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread


Recommended Posts

Honestly thought McAdams was easily going to be a top flight keeper after his season at Morton and I was desperate for us to sign him. Seems to have not kicked on from that initial promise.

He is genuinely a very good shot stopper and it’s easy why he looked so good in a shite Morton team that relied on him keeping them in games. He did the same for us in a few games. He was outstanding in the win against Killie. On the flip side he has massive faults in his game. He always looked quite wee and this means that he rarely commands his own box. His kicking is atrocious and I’ve never seen a goalie struggle to kick the ball over the half way line as much as him. In my opinion he’ll never play in the top flight and will probably be mid table Championship at most.

Charlie Albinson isn’t a great goalie either but he’s more well rounded and just seems to get through games without any massive howlers or any massive saves. Just pretty steady if unspectacular. Think it’s a position we could definitely upgrade on but isn’t nearly a priority. Maybe next year if neither of them improve much.

Both goals looked like a mirror of the two we lost to Queens park last week. 
We started well and could have been a couple up in the first 10 minutes. Hamilton scored the first time they were up the park. 
The game was shite from Hamilton scoring to them scoring again, we barely left our half and started lumping long balls, it was almost inevitable they were going to score. 
After Hamiltons goal we sparked back to life again, a draw was probably fair in the end.
I think we are near the end of the Nick McCallister experiment, thought he was very poor today, Musonda strolled the game. Ashford was very effective today as well. 

I thought McAllister had a great game. Doesn’t offer much going forward but he’s a steady defender. Doesn’t look great for him with Thomas’ goal last week and Winters goal today but I think over the piece he’s been good. Would be interested to see Frankie at RB and Kirk in next to McGinty. No real need to change the defence about but it’s something to maybe look at.

Lol what? He’s genuinely been very good every game this season. A far better option than Houston.

That's the problem throughout the squad really, you don't actually have to be good to be here and playing, just a wee bit better than the other shite we have signed in your position :lol:

Don’t want to be harsh, but what is going on with the camera work on the highlights package?  Used to be excellent,  albeit the camera angle was always too low.  Now it doesn’t seem to be tracking the play properly or focusing on the goalmouths - feels like the camera is mounted in the car park at times.  Is the camera work on the stream that bad?

Those highlights are the equivalent of our stream. They aren't Wuffster, that's for sure! I don't give two fucks about intro graphics or graphics showing the goalscorer. I'm more interested in being able to follow play and have a clear steady picture. Those highlights really are a step backwards. I'd rather watch wee Mattman's videos if that's the standard of the highlights package.

Edit - That sounds like I don't watch Mattman's stuff. I do and enjoy it immensely. Often he gets a good angle behind the goals.

I got about 30 seconds into the highlights before I was prompted to sign up or sign in. f**k off.

They'll be up on YouTube at some point anyway.  Why bother.

Camera location and coverage was lot worse that last season. What the deal with black and white tv initially they were letting folk use it and put up a few videos each week beyond highlights and press conferences then I though plan was to charge a fiver a month. I get with covid they probably found it difficult to get enough content. If they want to charge got stuff I get why they are putting on black and white tv otherwise why not just also put on youtube.  My old man can barely work a computer but now with smart tv he can work youtube quite well.  If your not charging for it then make it accessible and easy to share on social media which sponsors would probably want to see.

It’s ridiculous that the club are paying to be able to host Black and White TV (I assume they’ll be paying someone to host the website), and not charging us, so it’s costing the club money. It’s an absolute no brainier to put the footage on YouTube, where each video they’d upload is guaranteed thousands of views, it’s free for the club to upload and use, and they’d gain some ad revenue, albeit quite small amounts. We all know YouTube is very user friendly, everyone probably has the app on their phone, TV etc. I think they should can Black and White TV completely as soon as possible, and just call it a failed experiment. I can’t see many people paying £5 a month or whatever they want to charge to use that horrendous website.

The UI on black and white TV looks like it’s been setup by a standard grade computing student as well. If you’re gonna take them off YouTube to put it on your own website at least make it user friendly.

I'm surprised there has not been more mention of Muirheads equaliser. It was a belter. If we could get a decent finisher to partner Dipo we would be fine, IMHO.

Must have been some strike if he hit it all the way from Firhill.

The last I’d heard was that B&W TV was Graeme Millers thing and the club were planning on doing away with it, with all highlights and interviews going on YouTube. Dunno why they’re persevering with it as no one is paying for it and it’s more of a hassle than clicking onto YouTube.
