thirdwell : (23 October 2017 - 03:48 AM)

I have spent the last hour reading some of the Rangers fans comments on the game. Each one of them said that the ref was a disgrace, that at least 3 Motherwell players should have been sent off and dozens of them claim to have heard the disgusting incident regarding Bowman breaking the nose!  In all my (almost) 50 years a 'Well fan I feel truly ashamed that the one and only great club in Scottish football is being victimised by the authorities (Rangers fans words not mine). I therefore urge that Motherwell, in fact all teams, that play Glasgow Rangers FC in future: do not tackle, do not jump for the ball, do not shot towards the Rangers goalmouth. If one of the opposition feels that a Ranger's player is a little tired or fatigued he should immediately notify the nearest official to have the game stopped so that said player may have a wee seat and a cuppa tea/coffee and a biscuit or two. This relaxation period is only relevant to players of RFC. If any other STEELMEN can think of any way that can improve Ranger chances of winning please feel free to add to the above list.

Need to get back on track. A home game against Thistle is one we should be looking to take all three points from. Anything less will be a disappointment.
Show the right attitude and we can take this 2-0.

I think yesterday proved that we're not quite good enough at home to go out and play our own game and not worry about the opposition.  Almost but not quite.  A lot will depend on who is fit ie Andy Rose.  However I'd like us to start with Elliot Frear in place of Richard Tait to give us more pace and creativity. That would would give Chris Cadden more freedom.  I suspect Thistle will prove very tough physical opponents and a midfield scrap is more than likely.  


Part of the problem is an unrealistic level of expectation. We see football from all parts of Europe on television daily and fans are expecting....the technical ability and flair they see from Spain's La Liga and the top end of the English Premiership. Thats just not possible. It seems fashion is over-riding common sense.

If Rose is fit he comes back in. If not Grimshaw. Lets win the right to play.

I agree with Frear for Tait. More direct and with 2 to hit in the middle could get some joy.

Question marks over McHugh at the moment but he is the Captain and probably needs to play through this dip in form so would give him another chance but Bigi needs to be ready to come on if its not working for him.

Need to be winning this one if we have real ambitions for top 6.

Thistle have been playing well and are unfortunate not to have won yet.

Don't think this will be an easy game.

I feel we should win this game. Bounce back from a fairly poor performance on Sunday.

 

Should win 2 - 1, although, i can see us making it difficult for ourselves if we let them score first.

Motherwell's Andy Rose is doubt to face Partick Thistle after wife goes into labour

 

Motherwell ace Andy Rose's wife went into labour on Thursday

CRAIG GOLDTHORP

Published: 16:08 Thursday 28 September 2017

 

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has revealed that family matters could keep midfielder Andy Rose out of this Saturday's home Scottish Premiership game against Partick Thistle.

 

Ex-Coventry ace Rose missed last Sunday's 1-0 defeat by Aberdeen due to a hamstring strain and - although he is recovering from this injury - he is doubtful to face Thistle for other reasons. Robinson said on Thursday: "Andy actually trained yesterday again. But his wife's actually gone into labour as we speak so family are priorities.

 

"Hopefully everything's ok with him and his wife so we just have to play that one by ear."

 

Elsewhere in the Motherwell squad, goalkeeper Trevor Carson is doubtful with a slight knock but sixth placed Motherwell otherwise have a fully fit squad to face the second bottom Jags. And Robinson and his boys are desperate to bag three points at Fir Park.

 

He said: "With the international break coming up everyone's desperate to get three points and go away for two weeks or 10 days.

 

"You go away with a lot of belief, happiness and spirit in the camp.

 

"So it's an important game for us in getting back on track in the league. Hopefully we end up looking upwards instead of down on people.

 

"I think Partick have had a tough start to the season because they've played a lot of the top opposition in the league.

 

"I've watched them three times already this season live and they're a good side, with good players.

 

"And Archie (Thistle manager Alan Archibald) has done well consistently.

 

"I'm expecting them not to be down the bottom of the table so it'll be a tough game.

 

"We know every time we play them there's not a lot in the game as well.

 

"We've looked at them, we've studied them and we know what we have to do to win the game."

As long as last Sunday's game has no adverse affect on the team then hopefully home advantage will see us over the line with a 2-1 win. Should be a decent game. COYW.

Will you need to rebook your travel if it's on Sunday?

 

The date's right. The day's wrong.

Considering they operate in a different century half the time, it was good work by texanwellfan.

Every Saturday game is on a Sunday in New Zealand.

Important to get something from this match. Three points and we go into the international break on a bit of aught.

I know, it drives me nuts.

 

The days when we were actually qualifying for things, we'd have a domestic game on a Saturday, international on a Wednesday, and back to domestic the next Saturday.

Robbo will have had to do a bit of head scratching for this one.  Thistle are a big side (aren't most of them) and high balls lumped up to Moult and Bowman, if both play, won't be an option.  We don't want a repeat of last Sunday's tactics. Still as Robbo says our first priority is to win the physical battle and with it the ball.  If we can do that our next issue is what to do with it.  Its possible, but very difficult, to score when you don't have the ball.

 

I don't know much about the current Thistle side but I do know that they are hard and have 3 or 4 leviathans in their side.  Maybe they are susceptible to speed?  I'd like to see Frear start,and copy Davie Cooper's tactics against such opponents - rattle across low hard cross after low hard cross into the opponents 6 yard box.  I always enjoyed seeing the ball canoning off big defenders legs at random angles and sometimes into the back of the net.  By all accounts Thistle have been very unlucky so far with poor referees and a start featuring top six opponents.

 

Still the 3 points are up for grabs and we have a team full of fight and spirit. No reason to be pessimistic.

Slightly concerned about Carson if cannot make it, although Griffith is more than good enough as a replacement, but if he is injured during the match, it would need to be Morrison😭

Bit of thinking outside the box here. Teams are now aware of our
" physical and robust style of play " to quote various " journalists " and our quick ball up to our two front players so why not try something different. Everybody seems to agree that our captain hasn't had the best of starts to the season so why not give him a wee rest. How's about going 3_4_3 with

Carson

Kipre. Hartley. Dunne

Cadden. Campbell. Bigirimana Grimshaw

Mount. Bowman. Petravicius


I know folk will say we need to match up with the opposition ETC but why not try something different and let Thistle worry about our set_up.
Campbell and Grimshaw will fight for everything in midfield and the pace of Sid up top might just really surprise them. If it ain't working we could change it from what would be a pretty strong bench. I don't expect to see anything like this happening only putting it out for discussion
