Welldaft Mk1 : (25 April 2015 - 04:54 PM) The results today. Makes it all the more galling we lost the last 2 games. Win v Ross C and Killie at home in next 2 games and could be at least interesting. Glad Hibs are in pole position, but reality suggests we probably should WANT to play Sevco as they seem the worst of the 3 teams we could face, even with our bottling record against them. Hibs midfield will P1ss all over ours.

My mate and I were discussing former players at the weekend and were both in relative agreement on our top 5.


Being in our mid-30's we are largely influenced by the 91 cup side;

Cooper - top class to watch at close quarters from the front row of the old terracing
O'Donnell - especially the early days, box-to-box, unbelievable energy, goalscoring threat
MacKinnon - motored up and down the left side, gritty and determined
Arnott - Legend, 100% every game, did amazingly well
Nijholt - pure class at the back

Bubbling under;

Boyd
McFadden
Dikstra
Kirk
Martin

Anyone care to share their own?

I'll take your 5 but I'll swap Faddy for McKinnon - not that there is anything wrong with McKinnon (except maybe the ginger 'tache)

Bubbling under, I'll fling in Krivokapic who I think is vastly underrated

A younger perspective (born 87): -

McFadden - For sheer entertainment
O'Donnell - Agreed as per your comments
Arnott - Agreed as per your comments (he was my favourite player when I first started going to games with ma da)
Coyne - quality striker who was a regular scorer in my young Motherwell supporting days
Martin - great defender for Motherwell playing over 200 games and I loved his old if in doubt punt the ball right over the east stand mentallity.

My faves in no particular order

Phil O'Donnell (see previousl descriptions)
Joe Wark (Old Rubber Legs, only man who could tackle from behind and not commit a foul)
Graeme Forbes ( The Original Psycho. (Sorry Colin))
Luc Nijholt (HIs "One of the Proudest Moments in my Life speech will be forgiven lol)
Ian McLeod (Big Marsh who wouldn't play on a Sunday, still was a no nonsense kind of player)

There are just too many who fall just outside this top five>
Dougie Arnott
Stevie Kirk
Shuggie Sproat
John Gahagan

And too many more without higjacking the entire thread

And so many of the players from the ancell babes era who I only have hearsay on how good they were

Sorry for rabbiting on guys

McRae
Pettigrew
Wark
Davidson
Kirk

Being an oldie the first three came fairly easily, and, if I'm honest so did the fourth. Vic Davidson was an absolute joy to watch, one of the best midfield players I've seen in a Motherwell jersey. From the modern era, McAllister, O'Donnell, McFadden, Cooper, all came close but in the end it was a straight decision between Kirkie and Dougie. Kirkie's all round boys own career, going in goals and saving a penalty scoring in every round of the cup incuding the winner in the final, becoming our top European scorer. If I had played for Motherwell that's the career I'd want.

Quite simply Pettigrew without Graham, was like eggs without bacon. Not a front two to touch them - telepathic it was. The others speak for themselves.

Bobby Graham (friend of my dad)
Dougie Arnott (pretty obvious)
Davie Cooper (genious, with the left peg anyway)
Willie Pettigrew ( Went to his dads house for halloween when I was a kid, idolised him and still a pleasure to meet him on occasion)
James McFadden ( when I stopped going to games, my mates talked me into coming along again to see this kid, entertainment value was there and I fell in love with the game again)

In no particular order

Dougie Arnott
Colin O'Neil
Davie Cooper
Luc Nijholt
Steve Kirk
Rab McKinnon
Brian Martin
Tommy Coyne
Sieb Dykstra
James McFadden
Miodrag Krivokapic
Martyn Corrigan

Good many others I have a lot of time for but these ones stand out for a variety of reasons. Again would also add Craigan when he becomes an ex player and the housewives favourite of course!
"So basically just like his previous 'chat' with him before the Levante game last August. ie informal to see if he would consider it or not. I would suggest that McFadden wasn't interested then and he won't be interested now so the McCall and the club shouldn't bother wasting their time. He does not want to sign for us just now, or any time soon, I think that much is quite clear."

MJC




"I want to say, in all seriousness, that a great deal of harm is being done in the modern world by belief in the virtuousness of work, and that the road to happiness and prosperity lies in an organized diminution of work.

…The morality of work is the morality of slaves, and the modern world has no need of slavery."

Bertrand Russell

"The essence of all slavery consists in taking the product of another's labor by force. It is immaterial whether this force be founded upon ownership of the slave or ownership of the money that he must get to live."

Leo Tolstoy
