Every Ayr fan wants a team to challenge but where is this budget going to come from?
The Directors canít keep funding the playing budget forever.
We got bigger crowds for a while last season then they drifted away again.
The AU500 fund has about 140 active paying members of which at most 100 attend matches regularly; that means over 90% of those who go to games are not members.

Could be taken that way...

I took it at face value. McCall is saying that he doesn't want to finish 8th and just stay up. He wants us to challenge again next year. Great to hear that and i think everyone will agree with his comments
A manager saying that he wants further investment is not an automatic 'I am open to offers'

He has established us in the league in one season, which is a major accomplishment and one which i did not expect. I only dared hope for a mid-table finish to our season after our promotion from Division 1

We want to be looking at players who will challenge again, for the title !
We need financing to bring in the right calibre of player and this is good to hear. I think Mr McCall wants us to know his thought on this, and if it gives extra leverage to get the purse strings opened a wee bit then good and well

Folks doing the interviews need to indulge in a bit of whitabootery with this stuff - could easily have shut Robertson up with "you have to admit that ICT being in the semi-final was in part based on some questionable referreeing in the game at Somerset Park, do you think you are only unhappy as this time it didn't go this way?"

Apply the same when Steve Clarke, Steven Gerrard, Craig Levein on so on indulge in similar rants. Clubs react by not doing interviews........ oh dear, how sad....  never mind.

Couldn't believe the way Robertson was going on about the ref.
He must have forgotten about last week's officials handing them victory on a plate.

I think it was definitely McCall saying Ď I have done a good job here and I am open to offers elsewhere Ď

Maybe reading too much into it but anyone else think McCall's comments in the AP about not wanting to build a team to finish eighth and looking for better communication from the board and more investment could be taken as "I have taken them as far a I can"/"board not matching my ambition"

Also in a rare moment of incite from Bob Shields, he correctly surmises that we never seemed to recover from the Talbot result.

John Robertson moaning about questionable refereeing decisions in their game against Dundee United last night, given the debatable nature of their second goal and their penalty last week is a bit cheeky.

Next we will be getting a new stadium.

Nah we have made too many recent ground improvements with the new wall and rebuilt turnstile.

Actually whilst I mention it, a smashing job on the wall to get it done between two homes games without any threads being started about us moving to Dam Park/KG5

Season tickets will now be in the form of a small plastic card, similar to a credit card which will have your name on the back.

Oh.. might have to get me one of those cards big improvement on the fixture cards  ;D
