Being objective taking the Partick job makes limited sense given their league position, off the field uncertainty and being unable to do anything about the team until January.

Subjectively they are a bigger club, with higher expectations, his son is a season ticket holder etc etc.

McCall seemed to imply at the pre-season sponsorship auction or was it the q and a - can't remember - that he owes a massive personal debt to LC for turning his life around so that will also be a factor.

Just need to see how it pans out. If McCall stays I think we will need a news striker - Doolan heavily tipped to be their new managers assistant or involved as a coach. Whilst he hasn't set the heather on fire would be the loss of another experienced option from the squad.

Does he not spend a lot of his time in the West End? Managing and living near the local team may be fine when things are going well but could be unbearable if not. With Ayr he can keep his workplace far from his social life.

Working from home is overrated anyway  ;D

AUFC Talk / More Talk of McCall going to P...

Well the circus starts again!  Partick Thistle sack Gary Caldwell and the printed media have Ian McCall as the favourite to be the new Partick Thistle manager.

I am aware that McCall has an association with Partick Thistle and he is very friendly with Gerry Britton and the Partick board.  But this is unsettling for our team.

I have to ask why would Ian McCall want to take the Partick job.  He has been there before and done that.  It is a club which never seems far away from some final disaster.  Where as at Ayr he is building something special here, top end of the Championship for a second season and claims to have a great relationship with the chairman.

Leave our team and manager alone!

Quote from: SomersetPablo on September 16, 2019, 14:56:16 Did anyone hear Chick Young waxing lyrical about Ayr on BBC Scotland immediately after Satuday's game?  He described Ayr's play as "joyous", Ayr as "a team definitely going places" and urged anyone listening to make sure they make their way along to a stadium near them the next time Ayr are in town as they will not be disappointed!

Chico quite regularly has nice things to say

Cracking game - based on what I have seen so far that is the two best teams in the league. Dundee United look much better than last season.

Great performance by all - Moffat showing Shankland who the daddy is - can we send Harvie away to the u21's every week as he was immense. The thus far unheralded Roscoe barely gave the best striker in the league a sniff. A threadbare squad getting that kind of result and playing with that kind of elan is what makes it all worth while.

Only downside why were we baiting Shankland at the end - "Lawrence what's the score" would have been a lot less w*nky way of making the point  than calling him a b*stard.
