Is it? Absolutely no chance I could be arsed remembering every transaction I made of using only cash. Using card you can log into an app in 5 seconds and have a detailed breakdown of every transaction made.

Yes it is as Pandarilla so eloquently put it

The point being you don't need to remember as you can physically see what you are spending. It's a bit fucking pointless logging in five seconds after you've decked your bank account

Ticket system was fine?  Need more folk to scan them.

Purchasing tickets side  of system was no issue what so ever today , there was a small queue for about 5 mins due to a steward sending everyone into shop to purchase tickets yet there were 3 empty points around corner , there was a scanning issue due to the number of new turnstile operators along with a shortage ( plenty of jobs going , 1.5 hrs work living wage , free entry to ground and refreshments at end of shift ) contact ayr united for positions , some new operators were not following process and that will be ironed out for next game , also did not help that we had a visiting group today of over 100 people who all turned up to be scanned in around 2.30 all going to same area of ground ,

@Robbo63

I am a big proponent of the ticketing system but today was not a good advert.

At the North Terrace the operator didn't know what he was doing. I got through with my season ticket okay after he said "I hope this works..."

Then my brother and granddad couldn't get in with their concessions (one a season ticket and one a ticket for the game) and were told there was an issue with concessions and to walk round to the Somerset Road end and when they got there it looked like they were already in the stadium so the operator there had to "check them out" so they could get in.

The system works if in the hands of trained operators. I know its a bit blunt but the guy at the north terrace didnt have a clue.

My mate’s a Coventry fan and apparently Michael Rose was tremendous yesterday in their game.

They are already touting him for higher levels.

If as rumoured we are back in the centre half recruitment business then there appears to be three very experienced operators still available : Anton Ferdinand , Gregg Halford and Matt Kilgallon .... Ferdinand and Kilgallon both got 20 games in the Premier last season .. Might be beyond us financially but just saying ....

I wonder if Swansea ,with £17 million burning a hole in their pocket , are casting their eyes north to the Tay and drooling  as our old boy nets four again ? Did the big man get us a % clause as Rose did ????

Brilliant to see Rose do well some of our fans also need to keep that in mind when having a go at big Sam that Rose was nowhere the finished article when he joined thought he was a lot better yesterday especially in the first half and will benefit from training and playing with Adams.

We are still very light on options in a lot of positions. After losing Shankland, Rose, Crawford, Smith and McDade and cutting the wages of Moff and Geggan. You’ve got to think we still have budget left for 2 or 3 players.

Only need defender and out and out forward , we have an abundance of midfielders , 2 more players for those areas should see us through to our annual January signings

I hope we manage to get them and have a couple of surprise late additions like last season. I was beginning to think we'd be waiting till January to bring anyone else in.

We have looked a threat going forward in our games so far, but could still do with another number 9, preferably a target man to give us a more direct option, especially for later in the season.

I think our defensive vulnerabilities have been clear and we are giving away a lot of needless goals through simple mistakes and we look exposed from set pieces. Hopefully Adams being back fit and bringing in another defender will help with that and we should be ok.

Is there any chance of these signings happening?

You remind us on an almost daily basis about the fans, kinda hard to forget.

If it was cut by...175k was it? I'm not sure that we do.

I think the budget is the same but last season because we quallified in the League Cup and had the away game at Ibrox the Board released additional funds. At least I think thats what Lachlan was trying to say on the Facebook Q&A.
