AUFC Talk / Re: QOS vrs Ayr
Last post by ghostofjimmysmith - April 24, 2022, 10:39:22
I genuinely had the fear for yesterday, especially when QOS scored but for once we got a bit of luck and all still in our own hands and can't go straight down. Single goal in either ours or the Dunfermline game either keeps us up or puts in the play offs but even the play offs would be still be in our own hands.

Jury still out on Bullen but parallels with McCall - massively underwhleming first six months that almost saw us relegated to league 2. Then two acts - act one further underwhleming as we struggled to a play off win and then came staight back down - Dumbarton staying up that season and Dick Campbell and Arbroath exploits this season have killed being part time as any kind of excuse - act two the best team the club had had in 20 years and finding our own Roy of the Rovers.

If we do go down does Glendinning have a list of signing targets for league one or will we just try and get the same targets to come and play in league one? Mathie and Glendinning I am speculating are a £70-100k wage bill we didn't have to worry about last time in league one

Up until about 80 mins last week the players were fairly motivated. And reading the posts on P&B today we seemed to be the better team in the first half and had the better chances.

If we win next week we deserve to stay up.

I'm not saying the board and David Smith are perfect but I do think they are trying to take the club in a better direction and it won't happen overnight.

I want us to win something, I hate Kille with a passion and I'd love nothing more than to shove their WFAANW down their throats,

If we stay up, and it's still an if, then Bullen deserves the chance to build his own team and challenge for the promotion playoffs



He obviously cant motivate. Though i accept its hard to motivate a pile of sh1te

How many goes have the board had now at appointing someone?,McCall was our
last real manager,and let us be brutally honest ,he only came to us because no one
else would touch him.But he had what it takes,able to spot a player,get players to play for him,he had the talents but unfortunately personal demons damaged his reputation,but his tenure at Ayr restored and rehabilitated him.He brought a badly needed professionalism to the club which was sorely lacking.I think amateur hour returned when he left.Nobody of note will come to the club because we have been
bedevilled by a lack of ambition.That lot up the road spent one year down and are back up,for forty four years we have been in the wilderness.The so called directors
over the years should hang their heads in shame.

Bullen still has no clue. Waste of space along with a lot of players and the whole board.
This car crash of a manager hasnt won a game for months. Kerr Hopkin and Duffy were no worse than this imposter....still this is down to the board....but at least we have a hub...sheesh

Perpetual mediocrity is a form of doom, I would argue.Look at the likes of Kelty Hearts,they have drive and vision,what do we have a new car park and a facility which should have been built thirty years ago!.Ayr fans have been treated dreadfully over the years,milked dry by the usual suspects,treated with contempt.
The board could not handle a fan representative who would really tell them what fans think of them.

I agree the club would not be doomed but massive step back and League 1 will be a hard league to get out of next season as depending on where we finish and/or play offs could contain QOS/Dunfermline, Falkirk, Airdrie/Queens Park (well backed) and a well backed Kelty.

If we do go straight down I would bin Bullen. Hopkin/Duffy left him a shambles but we have not actually been bottom at any point and he has had decent backing and plenty of time to get us out of this - up till now we have got away with Dunfermline and QOS being gash rather than us actually improving.
