The sort of game we needed to avoid defeat in if we are to realistically challenge for the league. Our fifth defeat of the league season is a bit disappointing at this stage. Great way to head into a 3 week break from competitive action
there was indeed a fairly mass exodus at 4-0, in fact I think they had to get the gate opened for them when it was pointed out its not normally open so early, anyway get it up them in their relegation battle...
P + B seem to have Ayr fans taking umbrage on behalf of the Partick fans regarding the queues on Saturday all sewn up.
Couple of random irritations re McCall - wasn't afraid to make an early sub and tactical change on Saturday - when did he ever do that at Ayr when things weren't going well? Is it Partick's superior resources that allow him to do that?
At half time the Partick subs had a structured warm up with a coach - as an aside nice to see our subs actually doing something organised - again is that Partick's superior resources - I mean we only had a Ranger first team coach sitting on the bench most games during McCall's first two and a half seasons.
Agree on the squad unity - for sixty minutes it was a massive girfuy to McCall from the squad without any assistance from the fans - intensity dropped the last 30 minutes so fans go to show their displeasure. Also Kerr demonstrating that he is not afraid to change things with that formation.
Moore needs a new contract as that was his best performance since Shankland joined the club.
Highly unusual sight of no mass exodus from the away end at 4-0 - no defiant singing, just took it with barely a whimper.
When do they get the new manager bounce - we are now 16 points clear of them have despite having lost 3 of the last 5 games. All looks very similar to when he took over at us, wasted a transfer window and nearly got us relegated to league 2.
