Right.. going to be bold and say Super Ayr will return to winning ways and get the 3 points this weekend. No reason or justification other pure optimism plus it's a home game.  

Looking at the bigger picture currently 10 points away from Inverness, so need to maintain that gap to ensure a top 4 finish.. before anyone shoots me down, would love to win the league but given the current status I would be totally pissed off, if we now finished outside the top 4. (not going to happen - positive thoughts)

Someone made a good point on P&B after the Killie v Celtic game. The biggest issue these days at football games could be that increasing numbers of people are taking substances other than alcohol before the games.

This Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995 was introduced due to our and I mean Scotland's terrible relationship with alcohol.  There is no getting away from that.   It is beyond me why morons need to go to a football game smashed out of their face and spoil the day for everyone else.

However, included within the definition of designated sporting event is International Rugby Union  matches.  So I can't understand why with this group get a blind eye turned and football fans are targeted.

From my army days the biggest bunch of animals were always the rugby crowd, but anything they do is written off as high spirits.  With football fans they are labelled hooligans.  Its a war of the classes!

Also a bit a riposte to all the "yez arenae very good withoot the boy Shankland" one man team p*sh we had to endure during our blip.

Difference is our fallback striker is probably on £300-500 a week, not a weekly wage that is more than most folks years wage.

Even the most optimistic K*ll*e fan know it was a fantasy.

Still think a team with a striker earning somewhere between £35-60k a week failing to score against St Johnstone who have lost 4 on the bounce is much much funnier, given the deluded drivel we have all had to endure the past few weeks.
Totally agree it was funny and they are paranoid and deluded

I apologise for my ignorance but what specific crime was being committed - why are you not allowed to drink you have provided on a private bus? I'm not being awkward I genuinely don't know.

If the bus had left a couple of hours earlier and the folks on board had gone to the pub for a couple of hours, would that have been alright?

Clubs are required to provide stewarding/policing at the ground and one of their duties is to prevent those gaining access who are under the influence and also remove anyone who is under the influence who may have gained access.

Whenever I get the train at weekends there will be groups of folks going on a day/night out having a drink, how is that any different. Similarly I have been on lots of fun flights with work, bizarrely some very early in the morning, with blootered stag and hen parties who are at best a nuisance but at worst a real safety risk.

Ayr supporters targeted on their way to Cappielow while Tennents are allowed to hand out free cans of lager to rugby fans on their way to Murrayfield.

To try and take positives, we are now a point further away from ICT in 4th and also QOS in 5th - Morton/QOS now looking over their shoulders.


That's the way I've been looking at it recently.
Taking it as a positive seeing how far ahead of Inverness, Queens, Morton and Dunfermline we are.
