makaveli  : (29 July 2014 - 11:44 AM) wouldn't get too excited, its probably Brechin City
scoojy  : (29 July 2014 - 11:35 AM) This from 'Flow regarding friendly "We've one lined up for Saturday mate. Just waiting for go ahead from few bodies. Will be confirmed 2moro all going well."
SteelmaninOZ  : (29 July 2014 - 11:18 AM) He says Never thought I'd Be Playing My Football in Scotland!! Wish Me Luck Motherwell F.C
SteelmaninOZ  : (29 July 2014 - 11:17 AM) Notts County that's him
scoojy  : (29 July 2014 - 11:16 AM) Anthony O'Neil Dwyer is his name
scoojy  : (29 July 2014 - 11:15 AM) According to twitter hopefully a friendly announced today and nothing concrete on signings but some guy from down south tweeted he was coming up to us
SteelmaninOZ  : (29 July 2014 - 10:52 AM) I heard they were doing extra training on Cathkin braes
underboylehe...  : (29 July 2014 - 08:40 AM) The whole where cryogenically frozen on return from Iceland and will be defrosted in time for the match against St.Midden.
milo  : (29 July 2014 - 07:57 AM) Any news anywhere about Motherwell? Friendlies? Signings? Interviews? Total radio silence since Thursday!!
makaveli  : (28 July 2014 - 10:42 PM) suppose its like any work place
scoojy  : (28 July 2014 - 09:30 PM) I've only played at amateur level but even then I've experienced it. And noticed a massive difference once they are no longer there
scoojy  : (28 July 2014 - 09:29 PM) Nah. One prick can totally disrupt a whole team
makaveli  : (28 July 2014 - 05:49 PM) rather have a prick who is a good player than a nice guy who is a shite player
makaveli  : (28 July 2014 - 05:49 PM) would have loved to have had watt on loan, okay hes a bit of a prick but could have done a job for us...
weeyin  : (28 July 2014 - 03:11 PM) Probably not, but he had 2 years left on his contract (which was undoubtedly worth 3 or 4 times more than any of our guys)
milo  : (28 July 2014 - 03:05 PM) I also see Celtic got 1.2 million for Watt!!! Is he really worth Reynolds, Murphy and Ojamaa combined? I don't think so.
milo  : (28 July 2014 - 03:04 PM) He's a decent player and great prospect but I think they're getting a bit greedy.
Mic2904  : (28 July 2014 - 02:24 PM) Dundee Utd have rejected the 2M offer, only for HullCIty to comeback to offer 3m. Might not be 3m straight off, but still....
maxywell  : (28 July 2014 - 02:06 PM) Is it not 2m for Robertson?

My late father was the game. In those days Billy Steele was Dundee's top gun and was reckoned to be the potential match winner. Dad was a member of the Flemington branch who ran several buses to the match. His abiding memory of the journey to Hampden was a banner that someone had made up. It read "We're not afraid of Steel - we've handled it all our lives". The rest is history.
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.

It was a good day but they ran out of pies just before half time. Typical SFA, the seating and standing arrangements weren’t that great but humping the real Dundee made it all worth while. Posted Image

Ma Da' lost his bunnet, chucked it in the air after one of the goals and it never came back.

Anyone know how many Scottish Cup Semi Finals we've contested?

Last time against Rangers, 1990/91 of course, and I vaguely remember one before that against Rangers but that's as far as my memory goes back.

I was 4 year old with measles.Vaguely remember listening on the wireless with my gran as the rest of the family were at the game,mum,dad,uncles,aunts,whole family has always been motherwell daft.
My mother had a drink from the Cup and I got Archie Kelly's jersey.I remember it was kept in a drawer but through the years it vanished, haven't a clue what happened to it.

Estimates varied, but my father always said that there were "60,000 from Lanarkshire", whatever that meant. In those days we had a fair support from Glasgow, Ayshire and West Lothian too.
