He made some fine stops in the second half, and I think he (and Ashcroft) were pretty unlucky with the first goal. Comrie too for that matter, after an outstanding block.

MoM ? Kiltie for me. After a dodgy first 20 minutes, he was absolutely fantastic. Honorable mentions for Ashcroft, Paton, Comrie, Martin and Edwards. Some people might say Edwards struggled, especially with Ayr attacking up his flank in the first half, but for a 19-year-old playing with absolutely no cover from his midfield, I thought he did remarkably well.

Great game in goals today, as stated above both Gill and Ashcroft very unlucky at thier first goal but both players more than up for it with fine performances not to mention Ashcrofts wonder strike.

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Want to see the goals too, regardless he’s made a couple of great stops. Cammy’s portraying the traits I expected this team to show, the real extremes. He’s highly thought of, AJ tried to take him to QOTS, he’s not big for a keeper but he’s incredibly athletic and makes up for that lack of height.He’ll make some worldies but invariably it’ll take time for him to become consistent, pleased for the boy as he’s a good guy.

I was right behind the first Ayr goal and it looked a great save from Gill which unfortunately cannoned off Ashcrofts head and in.
I didn't think he had a chance with the 2nd and it looked like it was the lack of closing down the Ayr player that was the issue.

He has really sharp reflexes and had some good saves but got good cover from his defenders when the ball went loose sometimes. Are goalies told to leave crosses to defenders now? He rarely comes off his line to catch a ball.

There is one save towards the end on highlights that comes into the category of how on earth did he get to that? I had to watch if a few times but can't work out if he saved it or it hit the post. Ayr got a corner from it so I am guessing he got his hands to the ball.

Some very good saves, 1 excellent punch and good bit of timewasting at the end.

Couple of shots he parried and didn’t really get them far enough from the danger area, first goal is a good save with being unfortunate Ashcroft is so close(you could possibly be petty and say Ashcroft hasn’t picked the best position to be but with the ball bouncing about like that it’s difficult)

2nd he’s taken a step at the wrong moment and unable to push off at the right time to make an effort to save it. It was a great strike and tbh without that he’d have still been struggling. It’s a very minor issue that maybe the top class keepers don’t make but we aren’t anywhere close to that level so it would be hard to put any blame on him for that.

Scully was eventually going to get dropped. He lets in too many tame shots and he generally flaps in pressure situations both with his hands and feet.

Gil did play well against Ayr. Long may it continue.

Absolutely agree, he's still learning his trade in the 1st team, mistakes will happen and its hard for a keeper because if he makes mistakes it's invariably trouble but if your young centre forward makes an error its quickly forgotten about. Given his athelticism I've no doubt he' ll make a couple of worldies in the coming weeks.

Around 2008. Not looking to blow my own trumpet or that, but it was myself and Roger Arnott who brought Cammy in, then convinced him to stay at pars. He was originally at hearts, but they had an issue with his height at the time. Other clubs tried taking him a couple years after, but he stayed loyal.

He's a proper "Dunfermline"-bred player, despite not being from the local area.

Always thought he should have been brought into the team earlier. However, he seems to be gaining confidence and stature with every game... Absolutely rooting for him. The best attitude I have ever seen in a youth player. Always first at training, and last to leave, as he was always asking about how he can improve.

Agree with Eck , when your the goalkeeper it's about consistency ! Plus it gives the lads in front of you a bit of confidence knowing you have someone safe enough behind you
And at the end of the day that's why Cammy got his chance because Scully was inconsistent and brutal and made the same mistakes

Elvis, considering Gill’s age, he’s one of the youngest in the team and in one of the most important positions on the pitch. Ultimately if he makes a mistake there is no one to bail him out. Goal keepers get better with age, and he will rely heavily on the defence in front of him as he gains his experience. Let’s not forget we were playing against a team with unlimited funds who have been trying to buy their way out this league the last few season. Dunfermline are on the other hand are try to build a squad out of a reserve side & league 1 players with a few experienced players in the mix. So far we’re doing ok, we’ve had fair bit of bad luck along the way but also showed how good we could be when the players click.
With all the ups & downs of the Championship season I’m sure we will be fine.

In a team ,which we were repeatedly told was wretched, in the days of AJ and Sandy; he had ten shut outs by January.

Of course they were not quite as wretched as the team which took 4 points and almost saw us relegated in the last quarter of Stevie's tenure.

He did great against Partick, Alloa, Morton and Ayr. Didn't see him today but from the 4 games I have seen him play, he's been very good. Goalies, like the rest of the team, thrive on confidence so let's look to the next game and get behind the whole team.

Gill made the same error for the first goal as he did the Morton goal away a few weeks back.

Has a real tendency to just parry what should be a catch. On both occasions it’s led to goals. He catches it, it’s booted up the park and danger cleared but nope.

Against Morton it led to their corner which they scored from and then today it led to United’s goal.

My initial thought was he could’ve done better at the free kick - even if well hit by Clark at least move and make an attempt for it.

Certainly has a lot of ability as showcased last weekend but still has a long way to go. Wouldn’t be opposed to seeing us bring in another keeper in January but doubt there’ll be many, of any, better out there than what we’ve got already....

We love Dunfermline We do!

As I referenced before the match people need to be patient with him. Clearly on this forum bashing the youth player is becoming popular again. Both goals I would attribute to Cammy from the match. But he will learn, scully was dropped for the same sort of mistakes, I'd rather keep the young goalie in to see if he develops into a good player. First goal he should've done better from the initial cross, but then nobody closed down Clark or covered the front post. The second goal, having now seen a better angle on twitter, the wall wasn't set up far along enough to cover the near post, so hopefully he learns from that, still very well struck by Clark tbf.

This is the reason we don't bring as many quality youth through the club anymore, people berate them and destroy their confidence rather than encouraging them to improve and learn from their mistakes. Also we went to Tannadice, where we have a horrendous record and they've won every game there if I'm not mistaken. Move on from it and onto Arbroath, a game which on our own turf we can show our quality and score some goals.

Cammy has real ability and potential ,but I am not convinced his time has come.

I think we need an experienced goalie ,otherwise it may come back to bite us on the bum.(One who fears a cross less than Count Dracula would be a starting point)!

We saw a very good performance yesterday at ,arguably,the most difficult venue in our Division.We had more on target shots and more attempts than United but were undermined at the back.

Of course I may be wrong .Though the current haemorrhage of Pars Fans at Home matches suggests I am not alone.

Cammy made mistakes yesterday and cost us goals so what other outfield players have done the same so get over it and move on. If he does the same in the next 2 games then that's the time to change things and by the way I would not make the excuse about his age although I do agree that goalkeepers usually get better with age and experience.

Why do keep using the word haemorrhage? Is it an attempt to look intelligent? Trust me it's not working.

Other clubs fans told us Robinson was sh1te. After a good start they were proved correct. 9 months later he's still not got a club. Get over it.

He made 1 mistake that led to a goal, via pretty poor defending too. He should have held that cross/shot, but didn’t. The free kick is some hit, just seen a video on twitter and it’s a shame that Clark never did that for us....

We should persevere with Cammy and support him because there is clearly a lot of potential there, he will be a much better keeper than Scully and Robinson in time. I believe his distribution is already for better than Scullys which makes a big difference to how we play. Debate whether he is better right now, but you do have to ask yourselves why Robinson is without a club, and Scully was Morton’s 2nd choice before coming here, while Gill had options to move on and up.

Never heard any abuse towards Gill during the game despite his mistakes. In fact the fans were brilliant yesterday and atmosphere was positive. Not sure where comments about slaughtering him are coming from. If this is a reference to saying it was his fault with the goals on this forum it's a discussion board and will be mentioned. Just like last week when he was praised for some outstanding saves. I get a bit fed up with the criticism of the Pars support at times. Yesterday proved what a great set of fans we've got.

It's a fact of life that when a team is on a winning streak the crowds improve and the opposite is the case when on a losing streak. It's been like this all my 45 years going to EEP.
It's far from the case that it looks like we'll go down but even if we did we'd most likely be back in the championship again in a season or 2 without any long term damage to the club.
There wasn't the money after last season to support the strategy from previous seasons so those on here that think we should change management again or spend our way out in January need to wake up.

Gill flapped at the cross leading to first goal, and was posted missing for the second.

Doesn't matter what age he is - he'll need to grow up quickly, he's the front line now.

Bottom line - costing us goals and points.

He made some brilliant saves in the Morton and Ayr games but I have to agree that at the first goal yesterday he should have caught the ball and the second one he didn't even see it. Couldn't blame the sun because the shadows seem to suggest it was behind him. The first mistake shouldn't have led to a goal though if our defending had been better.

All for giving him a chance personally I’ve never been convinced by him over the seasons lacks any presence at cross balls and needs to work on that part of his game

I think people think we have De Gea or Ter Stegen...we have Cammy Gill who is a young prospect in the Scottish Championship or Ryan Scully who is more experienced but just as error prone.

'Build for the future' was the message at the start of the season. He is going to make mistakes, he is a young lad.

Give him more than 5 or 6 games, jeez! What about all the other errors yesterday?

Drop Ryan Dow for not scoring the 1v1, Drop Paton for getting nowhere near his marker all game...numerous others also. I know it's the nature of the beast that if a goalie makes a mistake it tends to result in conceding but the boy needs a lot more games than he has had to be judged. In my book he is still ahead even with the mistakes yesterday

C'mon Ye Pars!

Thankless position being a goalkeeper, either a hero or a villain. Some of the reactions on here seem to be very over dramatic.

Cammy is a decent young goalkeeper and I think the more games he gets the more he will improve. It's inevitable mistakes will get made along the way, even the best keepers in the world make mistakes. I personally don't think he was accountable for the first goal but I can also see why there is so much debate. Personally I think we could've defended alot better in the run up to it.

Second goal was a decent strike but there is also an argument that his reactions could've been better.

You also have to score goals to win games and we were punished for not taking the multiple chances that we had.

Cammy makes a mistake and gets slaughtered, the strikers miss chances and its move on, you were told he isn't consistent yet but there's a keeper in there and until he gets games under his belt you are going to see extremes with Cammy, short memeories abound.
