To be fair, pre-game I would have happily settled for a point given the league cup game results for both Ayr & Arbroath. Think it's clear we need an attacking midfielder and a striker who can goals by any means.

Stolen from facebook, is this a fair reflection of the game:

QuoteOST MATCH FACTS
Arbroath played with all the possession favoring them from the onset but nothing t show for. Going into the second half, things changed. I would give it 49%-51% Arbroath!
Ayr United tried many times to find the back of the net. At least we should have scored even two. But I would give it 14 to 8 favoring Ayr.
Fouls seem to be one area that Arbroath dominated. You'd think they were practicing Rugby instead of football. They committed 18 serious fouls against Ayr's 12.
As if reading my preseason fun preview, Arbroath got a Red Card. They also got a whooping 5 yellow cards!
Ayr United without a doubt forged a good attack system. Bryden deserves more starts! 60 attacks against Arbroath's 37.
Positives from the match;
✅ Despite not scoring, the team looks like is jelling up and ready for competitive football.
✅ Defense was solid
✅Faith in the youngster who seem to have started enjoying himself after signing a professional contract.
✅Pushing till the end of the match.
Going forward;
⚽ We need goals. Hopefully the Gaffer Lee Bullen will look into this aspect.
🤔 4-4-2 formation will be better if we have a two sharp strikers.
This result considering how we've been playing prior to this match, I would say "Cintu cabwino maniiiingi!" (It's a very good thing.)
Full Time scores
Ayr United 0 - 0 Arbroath

Didn't see any games I admit  but results are unacceptable 1 goal in 4 games is terrible  ,doesn't look good do we have a problem signing strikers who can score I don't count young Bryden he's starting out lucky we had Tomi last year ,hope I'm wrong but looks worse than last last season , Bullen and co talk a good game ,

We need to play 4 4 2,we need two midfielders who can go from front to back,seemingly Bullen has been told this to remedy these dire performances.But will he listen?.Money there for further two signings seemingly,how about a marquee
signing,would surely stimulate season ticket sales!.I know a few people holding off
on purchasing a season ticket to see what direction they are heading.Who increased the kids ticket prices,madness,shooting ourselves in the foot again.Is it to cover the big wages of you know who?.

Bit of a disaster for us, barely laying a glove on two league two teams (one who finished 9th last season) and a QOS team who look no great shakes. One goal - from a player posters on P and B seem desperate to loan out - a single clean sheet and limited signs that we can compete in the championship.

We look to have gone backwards even from last years struggles.Apparently looking for more bodies but if Glendinning involved in their recruitment will they be any better - Dave Smith needs to tell him no more trips to the English lower leagues.

A lot resting on Bangala who was never scouted just recommended to Bullen by an ex team mate following a charity game.

All getting to be very much Falkirk 2018/2019 or a flashback to the Stainrod era
