Imperative we get some quality in, we horsed Cowdenbeath earlier with the same team minus Gilmour,Docherty,and Moore tonight. They had 3changes to that team,Kerr, Scullion,and Brett and wiped the floor with Ayr tonight. The lad Spencethey have is probably one of the best forwards in this league and was very good the last time we played them. What is the score with Moore injury after injury, and came to the club with that backdrop while he is a cracking wee player he is absolutely no use in an already small squad. Trouten the biggest disappointment to me and does not justify his place in the team. Some big decisions for Ian McCall in this window, just hope he has had some scouts out and can get better in.

Initially dismissed the Cowdenbeath result as a bit of a blip(5 certain starters missing) etc etc.
However if we assume that all 5 would have started then those to miss out would have been probably Donald, Caldwell, Crawford, Murphy and Trouten,not a rookie among them!!We even had Preston on the bench.We should have had enough on the park to hold our own with Cowdenbeath who,by a mile,have been the worst team to visit Somerset this season.
This does not bode well for Saturday.We were very lucky to win at Stair Park earlier this season and on current form can only see a very difficult afternoon.Despite their league position Stranraer are no mugs and lets face it,we are in freefall!

Stan, there is no need to panic even if we don't win on Saturday. This squad if fully fit are the best in the league and the injury front should clear up within a couple of weeks.

Worrying to hear we have no physio cover for illness, surely the club could sort something out, come on, Lach.
BR at Stranraer must  be rubbing his hands...

Freefall? Really? The boys put in an almighty shift on Saturday. Running around in such heavy ground for 90 minutes must have been knackering. Then to travel to Fife 72 hours later, to play a team who had a break at the weekend, who have lost only one home league game this season. Add to that our injuries and suspensions. We have lost a few games recently (after a record breaking run) but those losses have come at difficult away grounds and against a side with a vastly superior budget. Let's try to keep a bit of perspective folks. In less than a year, the gaffer has turned things around. We're second top instead of second bottom. We're playing passing football instead of lumping high balls to Beattie or Kyle. And there is quality and desire throughout the squad. We're moving in the right direction, don't let this blip distract us from that.

Very worrying. So many injuries and no Physio, Gilmours injury not even assessed yet.

We have lost 4 of our last 5 games conceding 11 goals and scoring 5.Two of these defeats have been to teams whom I would suspect  have inferior budgets to us. The game we won resulted in us hanging on at the end again to a team with an inferior budget to ours and who are in the bottom two in the league.We play the other team in the bottom two this Saturday and will be lucky to come away with a point.Stranraer also have an inferior budget to Ayr.By all accounts Cowdenbeath who have an average crowd of two men and a dug tore us apart last night.If we lose on Saturday Prestwick Popeye will you at least consider that we are heading for a 'freefall' situation!

To say we were hanging on against Brechin is utter nonsense.
If you take the wages of our injured five players out, I'm sure Cowdenbeath wouldn't have an inferior budget so not relevant.

If we lose on Saturday it will be because of injuries, not because we are in freefall, stop with the over reactions.

Everyone should be back fit after Stranraer. There must be a good chance of it being cancelled anyway.

What about adding in the wages in of the 5 who replaced them or were we playing with only 6 PLAYERS!! That's the nonsense!!

Ok stan i agree with some of your comments and yes we should be beating most of the sides in this league by a country mile. However the style of football we play under or current boss is not for muddy pitches or rain lashed days, but i would still take our current place in the this whore of a division than what we had to watch under Roberts.
I wasnt able to attended at the Cow patch last night so cant comment on the display. I would ( if i was the current gaffer) install that its us the fans of our club who are getting let down by a our players  during( matches that we should have won) we have suffered enough and yes we have a right to moan what ever budgets we have or other teams have should not matter its the pride of the club and the fans that matters most to us all and players no matter who they are in our current squad should stand up and be counted and give more than 120% every game every match in fact evry day that the play for a club with a fantastic following

Well no that's not what I said. If you take injured players out of the equation, on both sides that gives you an idea of the respective budgets for that game. As bad as we were last night, Cowdenbeath were always going to be favourites.

Yes BBC Scotland an hour or two ago stated the A77 was closed and the outlook to the weekend is not great. I can't see this one being played tbh.

Quite fancied a wee trip down to the poor man's Cairnryan, but might not be the worst thing if its off. Give us a chance to get back to full strength. As for those saying the end of the world is nigh, let's look at the four games we've lost: we lost two - narrowly - to Dunfermline, who are a full-time team. And we've lost away to two teams who've both only lost once at home in the league all season. Our undefeated run was great fun, but it seems to have raised some folks' expectations a bit.

One thing we can all agree on is that it is not easy being an Ayr United supporter.However we fight on and i must admit i would not have it any other way.Ayr United is a passion for many of us,in some ways it is hard to describe but a mystery wrapped up in an enigma comes close. Onwards and upwards.
