    Our last 4 games have just reinforced the fact that we're one of the better bottom 6 teams, but not good enough to be top 6.

    Doesn't matter who it was to. That word went out with the dark ages. Just remember you have one of the biggest disabled supporters clubs in Scotland and that word is extremely offensive to them.

    The moron who threw the lighter should be identified and banned. He gave the media all they needed to deflect from the horrible support in the South Stand. Is one horrible individual throwing a lighter any worse than 5000 Sevco supporters singing sectarian songs. I know what I think but I also know which club will be pilloried in the media.

    I’m not getting the Main hate. I appreciate he isn’t scoring goals however he is instrumental to how we are performing at the moment. His link up play is improving every week and his flick for Frears goal was class. A lone striker in this role has to be more than just a goal scorer and I certainly think that he is proving to be an excellent foil for our wide players and drags defenders all over the place to create space for the rest of the team. Seems he is the whipping boy for the perennially unhappy amongst us now.

    Basic defensive errors cost us and good players/strikers punish you at this level. Also that’s now 43 league loses to Rangers and counting which is not a record to be proud of. Another disappointment is the inevitable fine we will receive for the lighter that was thrown by some idiot in the crowd. This is money that we can ill afford to pay and I hope the individual who did it is caught and punished for their actions.

    That's right. And when they go bust, they go out of existence and cease trading. Hence the old Rangers no long exists.

    If he plays for Blackburn there is a greater chance of being called up to Scotland squad which he can then pull out of

    Well, I reckon the club should’ve known how good he was when they signed him. Why didn’t they see it !!??!! They should’ve offered a 3 year deal and a loyalty card at tinto tapas ...... how could they have got this so wrong !!??!! I think he would’ve definitely signed for longer in the summer on the offer of the loyalty card.

    To....myself? . Don't worry, I apologised to me, and I accepted. I shook hands and both of me have moved on.

    St Johnstone came to sit in and try and nick something, and if Kane wasn’t shite they might have. However, we persevered and found a way through their banks of five. Says a lot that they were parking the bus, we weren’t firing on all cylinders, but we still strolled it 3-0. I think some folk are failing to grasp how big a deal that is, with all the talk of changes that need to be made. 13 of the 14 players on the park for us today are responsible for the crazy run we’ve been on since the cup game, they all deserve credit. Main was instrumental in two of the goals today, and his hold up play was really good in the second half. I liked how we stuck to our plan and didn’t resort to punting it into the box, which lead to three really well worked goals. The counter attack for Frears almost second was clinical. Dunne strolled the game, and Aldred was Aldred, their partnership allows us to do everything else.

    If he is on 14k a week then I am delighted. What that means is that if they can pay that to a player that is no more than a good prospect then it will not be long until they are bankrupt again and we will be rid once again of this despicable football club.

    Weeyin, you are being deliberately obtuse! The point was an acceptable offer PRIOR to his first team exposure ie last year! As I myself have pointed out, an offer of an additional year and an extra £200 a week made last summer, with the promise of a new contract offer should he meet his targets would have been snapped up by Hastie and would have protected our investment, all for an additional sum of £10k! But we decided to spunk probably 5 times that sum on Connor fucking Sammon instead!

    To those who didn't see the incidents. You see players steal yards at throw ins at every game. On this occasion however, the ball went out next to the corner flag. For the throw in Tavernier began to steal yards, and then more. At that point the crowd, and not just in the John Hunter Stand began to get worked up as it reached the ridiculous stage. Tavernier continuted to steal yet more yards. By this time he may have been say 7/8 yards from where the ball went out. From memory the referee then asked him to stop (I'm a little hazy about that). He ignored that warning then took another 2/3 yards. At that point we saw something getting thrown (too far away to make out what it was). We didn't appreciate that 2 objects were thrown. To be absolutely clear no player, including Tavernier, deserves to have missiles thrown at him. The culprits need to be dealt with or own own up end of. However both Tavernier and Nick Walsh need to look at their part in the incident, as their behaviour was a contributory factor. I assume thats why the fan(s) in the picture were worked up. Hope that clarifies it.

    I am going to make you all jealous. I was there the night the boys in blue got beat 5-2 by the boys in claret and amber. I was only 10 but my dad took me along to Ibrox. It was school night but I will always be grateful to him for taking me. Unfortunately he also took me to the next round when we lost 1-0 at home to Airdrie. I think this was the game that pissed off my hero Ian St John and he left soon after.

    The biggest thing was that they thought they would breeze right up through the divisions without any problems, not winning the first division was bad but it was ok it was only Motherwell in the playoffs so not a problem. the game at Ibrox was one of the best I’ve attended for sheer joy and a knockout atmosphere followed by the game at Fir Park which gave them the biggest kick in the balls - wonderful memories

    Can we not just count the play-off games as 'league' games? 2 wins right there.

    Aberdeen interested in Main according to the papers. They can take him. He does the hard work. But he doesn't do it very well. He also doesn't score a lot of goals . Cheery bye.

    I'm not sure why people keep talking about a meaningless end to the season when we're currently sitting 8th, one point behind St Johnstone, and two ahead of Livi in 9th. The difference between finishing 7th and 9th is £120,000, which is a fair chunk of change for a club our size. That's what should be driving us until the last game of the season.

    You're arguing against a point nobody is actually making. I'm not saying we should be matching Rangers or anyone else's offers. I'm saying that if, AT THE START OF THE SEASON,we had offered him wages in line with his status as one of our better prospects, with the promise of first team money once he broke through then I'm pretty confident he'd have signed. I don't expect us to keep first team players or get into bidding wars with the Old Firm, but I doubt there was much competition for Hastie and Turnbull's signatures when they were unheard of teenagers with no top flight experience.

    Yes it demonstrates the subtle importance of amber over the more commonly used yellow. I’m always dismayed when clubs play fast and loose with their branding and signature colours. We chose our colours for a good reason and we should never ever take them for granted. Clubs are more conscious of branding these days and Motherwell have made great strides in this department in recent years. On this forum I’ve campaigned on several MFC branding and kit issues and it’s heartening to see a few of them have been taken on board. The introduction of the original MFC monogram rather than the bog standard script font on kits/training wear was a huge step forward. I was boring myself with the amount of times I mentioned/campaigned for it on here. They got so bored with my whining that they ask me to draw it for them. Modern takes on classic kits is another thing I have pushed for and it’s been heartening to see a few modern retro inspired offerings like the 70s sash kit or our original blue top combined with C&A. The 125 retro anniversary was another milestone that recognised our 1960s signature top. So I’ve been quietly happy with the way our kits have been going recently, however, I just wish we could afford to ditch the Betting Dot Com sponsor as it ruins the kit. Or perhaps agree with the sponsor to allow us to sell a non sponsored version along side it.
