George Stanger ahead of schedule and could be back for Airdrie at home week on Saturday.

Back of AP also says Bullen believes we can win this weekend lol

In fairness, what you wanting him to say? We’ve got no chance so don’t bother coming?

Asking managers if they can win their next game is incredibly lazy journalism but the only way to head that off is not to reply to it.

Doesn't matter though. It's only aggravating because given the trajectories of the clubs over the last decade it is fucking galling that you'd be hard pressed getting evens for an Ayr home win against fucking Airdrie right now.

Shoulder dislocations are tricky, if they don’t heal properly the first time, they will continually pop out, it becomes second nature to put it back in as long as you know what you are doing. A PE teacher I had decided to give it a go with a pupil and they had actually broken their shoulder. Him swinging his are about like a twat to pop it back in didn’t help much. 
 

Think Peter Murphy did his at Palmerston or Cappelow and put it back in at the side of the pitch and played on

The prospect of beating the team that lost to Queen of the South really isn't all that laughable.

You didn't go to Marr in the early-mid 00s did you? If not, I'm worried there are a number of wannabe paramedic PE teachers running around Ayrshire.

The 90 seconds is just comical from the defending to the penalty saves.

Does anyone know which Ayr United keeper saved the most penalties? Fleming must be up there for sure.

He was really good at saving penalties. It was weird to see Ayr United concede a penalty without experiencing the horrible sinking feeling that the other team were likely to score from it. I was usually confident that he would save it and he often did.

Greg Fleming is the club's most prolific penalty saver of all time. I apologise for the pedantic detail. During this phase we were statistically in more danger of conceding a goal from a corner-kick than from a penalty.

Greg Fleming saved the first five penalties he faced in season 2016/17. These were against St.Mirren (19 July), Dundee United (20 August), Falkirk (7 October) and two against Dunfermline Athletic (3 December). The sixth one he faced was struck wide by St.Mirren’s Lawrence Shankland (17 December). The seventh was also saved. That was against Falkirk (14 January). To this point of his Ayr United career (signed 1 June 2015) he had faced ten penalties and only been beaten once. His first penalty save for the club was against Stenhousemuir on 24 October 2015. At Peterhead on 23 April 2016 Rory McAllister struck the post from the spot. At Dunfermline on 13 February 2016 Michael Moffat did succeed in beating him with a penalty. After the save at Falkirk he faced one other penalty in his Ayr United career. That was away to Hibs in the Scottish Cup on 4 March 2017 and Jason Cummings scored from it. Shootouts are technically not penalties because no offence has been committed but in the shootout against Stranraer on 15 May 2016 (play-off final) he saved three and in the shootout against Queen’s Park (Scottish Cup) on 24 January 2017 he saved two.

Hardly worth it to save £2 a game.  Then you look at Raith putting on free buses to Tannadice when we can't even get one ran at the cost of the supporters.  Maybe they'll surprise us and do something for Raith away on the unnecessary Friday night it is now getting played.

I don't know if it's just me but from the time I've been on P&B, there has never been a time where I've seen as little interest on the team in here.

Not sure if it's not helped just now due to what feels like the massive gap between league games due to cups and postponements along with no home game in like the last 6 weeks.

You have to look at Raith to see what we've done wrong as they've completely overtaken us on and off the park since their takeover which happened a lot more recently than ours...
