I don't agree with the negativity in relation to Dylan Tait. He didn't play well against the Pars but he was excellent in the first half yesterday (even the brief highlights confirm that. ). Things didn't go so well in the second half but the entire team was affected and there was no lack of effort from him.
The lad has got real talent and a great future in the game. This is how it has to be at The Rovers, find talent ,bring them on, enjoy them whilst they are here and sell them with our best wishes.


I agree. His assist for Zanattas goal yesterday was fantastic from the way he broke free from the Ayr midfield to driving forward and finding Dario out wide was excellent. You could see Dylan's frustration in the 2nd half when he pushed forward and no one was ahead of him or making spaces for him to find them. It was a difficult day all round. I'd love to see his loan extended until end of season as both he and Spencer are integral to us.

Very happy with the (lucky) three points, but the curse of the opposition comeback strikes again!

Meanwhile at Arbroath - it looked like third-top for us - and Peter Grant's job were safe for another week - but nah! And you thought WE were bad in the second half! Wink

We won yesterday thanks to our dominant first half performance. In my view, there were a number of contributory factors in the reversal of roles in the 2nd hald. Two have been mentioned already - the Ayr subs and our loss of Soencer, to be replaced by, let's just say, a different type of player in Riley-Snow.

The biggest factor of all for me has been the loss of Matthews. If last season Hendry was the 'heartbeat' of the team, then this campaign it's very much Matthews. Spencer and Tait are good, our wide midfielders also significant contributors. But our whole midfield ticks best when Ross Matthews is patrolling. I reckon Thomas wouldn't have had the space for his shot last Tuesday if Matthews had been on the pitch. And Ayr's second half improvement would've been much reduced if Ross had been spoiling things for them.

As for the mentions of lack of leadership by a couple of others - I just can't agree at all. Berra is a leader. Bene (although absent yesterday) is a leader. Otherw on the park lead by example. And, most definitely, McGlynn on the touchline is a leader.

Running some numbers, Zanatta is our top plus/minus player, but Matthews is number two.
