    Strange from Swansea point of view. If they could take him in Jan and he might do a job for them then why not take him then.

    There will be other interest.

    We need to put our own house in order as priority. In Robbie we trust

    I hear it a lot that folk aren't worried about Ayr United as Shankland will be off in January for certain. You'd think after last season (with Morgan) folk would be a little less certain but there you go. Regardless, what we do is more important.

    Fingers crossed someone else nips in and takes him away. Sadly though, Ayr seem to have quite a few players who would need to be removed to weaken them enough for the likes of us and RC to take advantage.

    It doesn't matter if he leaves or not tbh!

    We are an absolute heap and hopefully Friday's result puts paid to this myth that Shabba has built a really good side.

    Bar Safranko, Fyvie, Frans and perhaps Stanton, I wouldn't give a toss if any of that squad were to leave. Utter guff.

    Na, don't agree, losing someone that scores that amount of goals would make a hell of a difference.

    Ayr only just finished ahead of Raith last season. Donít accept that they are suddenly world beaters though it didnít go well for us on Friday.

    Shankland being away would weaken them. Have to hope we get stronger as thatís only answer to how weíll get up

    He wont be staying according to todays Record.

    Ayr had been hoping to find a buyer who would allow the 23-year-old to stay on loan at Somerset Park for the duration of the season as they try to blast their way to the Premiership but Record Sport understands there's no chance of that happening if Swansea's bid is accepted.

    This is the same Ayr team as last season - the same Ayr team which Arbroath beat twice and drew with as well.

    Who cares if Shankland stays or goes.

    What matters is that United focus on being ready for a title challenge and putting last week's result to bed.

    I totally agree with this.

    Are you serious? We aren't good enough to be blaze about whether one of our main rivals for the title loses the best striker in the league. Of course it would be hugely significant if Shankland goes.

    Did you say last season This is the same Livingston team as last season - the same Livingston team which East Fife beat twice?

    Whether Shankland stays or goes Ayr were miles better than us all over the park on Friday.
    Thought Livi would fall away last season won't make that mistake again.
    Fact is we need to get our act together, starting with Morton.

    Yes, I did say last season and yes, Arbroath beat the very same Ayr team twice last season - I know this as I attended these games and Arbroath were by far the better team.

    I don't care less if Shankland stays or leaves Ayr - all that matters is that United focus on getting ready for a title challenge.

    Let the other teams worry about United, rather than worrying about an Ayr player ( good luck to him ), but in the scheme of things, as a United fan, I am more interested in United's promotion drive for winning the league.

    P.S I would not bet against Arbroath beating Ayr again if they were to play in a cup match.

    You make a good parallel SA, Ayr Utd with Livingstone.
    Having seen Ayr on Friday I see no reason why they can't win this league.
    Ok, Shankland or no Shankland but with or without him I saw 10 other players giving 100% & they were missing two or three regulars.
    We have handicapped ourselves with poor recruitment but we can only piss with the cock we've got and it's what WE do that will determine our status in the SPFL.

    Agree mate
    We need to keep a mentality that it's down to us. We won't get any favours be it referees, transfers weakening other teams, injuries, other teams bottling it.
    Until we have a side with the energy, effort and team spirit similar to likes of Livi and Ayr we will be stuck in this league, and it's been long enough already.

    You're bang on Sutherland. Livi wanted it. And it looks like Ayr do too.

    Btw did Hopkin ever get a job? Holt's doing great tho, they'll not go down. Jack Ross doing well too. Kearney maybe getting his feet under the desk at St Mirren & now with the experience of Jimmy Nichol to help him. Gonna be tight down there, good cover for Agent Mac90.
