    Just for a little balance I asked my mate who is a big CU fan for his thoughts on Carroll. He is a level headed guy who has a balanced view on most things so I trust his judgement. This is what he said..... "I quite like him, but that might be because when my boy was a mascot for CU last year Carroll was the player he walked out with. Instead of just ignoring him, he spoke to my boy asking him lots of questions, and was just really friendly. Must admit that this season has been shocking for Cambridge United, and we could well have been relegated out of the league, we were lucky that there were three teams below us who were even worse! Whenever I saw Carroll play I always liked him, but must admit the last month or so he hasn't played that much, perhaps that was because they knew he was leaving." So it appears he was a decent spud who did a decent job but CU have been shit this year and he hasnt played much and is leaving. Given the experience of our own support (see Jake Hastie) it might explain why so many CU fans are angry and lashing out. Why dont we wait and see what he is like? Give the boy a chance.....

    Davie first and foremost is a 'Well fan so he was always going to make sure that when he leaves the club it would be well recompensed hence why he signed his new deal when he could have easily done a "Hastie" He also has enough faith in his own ability to know that he will continue improving to the stage that he will have a choice of clubs to join when the time comes. A very mature level headed young man who will do whats best for him and Motherwell FC and hopefully go far in the game

    Why not try being normal and well adjusted and make a judgement on a player after we have actually seen him play for a few months, instead of posting pish like that based on social media rubbish.

    Careful not to lose your balance there while you backpedal.

    That's obvious, considering the idiots called him Liam Turnbull in the article header.

    Perfect scenario for me is he stays at the club and becomes a key member of the famous 2023 Premiership winning squad.

    Kevin Clancy yesterday had an exceptionally poor game from start to finish and could easily have affected the outcome. Very relieved that he didn't. In the first half he could easily have yellow carded Kusinga and MacGowan for persistent jersey pulling on Scott, but only once awarded a foul. Many criticise Curtis Main for preferring to wrestle rather than play football but week in week out we see big defenders resort to this, mainly without any punishment. In the first half Gorrin was yellow carded for a 50:50 challenge and whilst it was robust it was probably not as bad as his opponents one. In fact I thought we'd be awarded the foul. He has been playing on a knife edge of late and picking up yellow cards so yesterday probably wasn't a surprise. His second yellow was also debatable and whilst rash it wasn't that bad. In terms of the 95 minutes yesterday he can consider himself unlucky given what the referee missed/ignored. Late in the second half, Tait was cynically brought down just outside the box by Woods just as he was about to pull the trigger. Foul awarded but the culrpit wasn't even spoken to. A stick on straight red in my book for denial of a clear goal scoring opportunity. The penalty decision was ludicrous, as the ball was not over the by line. We were astonished that Clancy, only a few yards away, consulted the linesman who was a good 40/50 yards away and unsighted, at the insistence of Dundee players and changed his decision. Poor refereeing and officiating from start to finish. I get that referees are only human and make mistakes but standards are poor in Scotland and bedevilled by inconsistency... Over to the SFA.

    I want us to win every game, why would anyone want anything else ?

    He can't sign with Rangers because he's under contract at Fir Park. They made him a great offer and we let him enter the final six months of his deal without any offer. We release boys every year and no one blinks an eye. No one is worrying about where Kyle McDonald or Jason Krones will be next season. It's a lopsided deal with a lot of fans: if the boys are good they owe us a few years but if they aren't first team material they are quickly forgotten.

    Writing a guy off coz of what people on the internet are saying about him has to be the most Motherwell fan thing to do ever.

    You have to hope it's similar to what happened with Chris Porter or more recently Charles Dunne where we were told the player wasn't up to much by fans of their previous team. Sometimes it just doesn't work for a player at a certain team for whatever reason. John Sutton at Hearts? Stevie May at Aberdeen? Let's just hope it's third time lucky in terms of left backs for Robinson...

    Give him another season and I think he will have clubs down south fighting to sign him. There is no way he should be going for any less than a club record.

    Getting to watch a quality player like David Turnbull is worth the season ticket money alone

    Yeah, everyone should definitely wait and see who the club bring in before giving them the money they will need to bring people in. Smashing plan.

    You see it all the time and it's incredible to me. A young player gets one start and "he's not good enough" while a player with 30 odd league appearances, who really hasn't been good enough over a season, gets the nod. Maguire, Livingstone and Scott should have got these 5 games and then you analysis it and see where you are. They might not be good enough but you don't judge it off one match and based on last week I'd have a hard time with anyone telling me we would have been better with Main playing, or we suffered due to having selected Scott. Let's not be dull, conservative and settle for the well worn path to mediocrity. The young guys need to learn the game and here's a chance for them to do it. Not doing so is development time wasted. Given the huge rebuild required in the summer it should be inconceivable for us to squander it as we have in the past. Where did that get us again?

    Agreed. Drives me fucking mental. Players act like when they retire their life is over. That whole line is an utter lot of shite. There’s that many jobs in football also that go to ex players. It’s just an excuse to justify the wages.

    I hate the "short career" stuff. They can get back into work after 35, down another path.

    That's one of the more embarrassing posts I've read on here, and that's saying something.

    I liked Bowman when he was with us, not the most gifted player but he always worked hard and put himself about in every game,

    I hope we keep Cadden. Was making goodnoff the ball runs. Looks really strong running with the ball. He went through a tough spell but since he came back it looks like the layoff has benefitted him.

    Despite everyone seeing these games as pre-season friendlies, if we somehow lose to Dundee, or even draw, and Livingston beat Accies we'll slide down into 9th place. Finishing 9th instead of 8th is a drop of £60,000 in winnings, which translates to over a grand a week in potential wages for a player. Worth bearing that in mind when we get to the summer and it's time to try and sign replacements for those who are leaving. However, if we realise that these games are still worth winning and we beat Dundee, and St Johnstone lose away to St Mirren, who still have it all to play for, then we could jump into 7th, which would see an increase of £60,000. Anyone who claims these games are worth fuck all need their heads looking at, seriously. I'm also guessing that these same fans who think it's pre-season time and we should stick in the kids are the same ones who'll be unhappy if we don't sign a decent striker this summer to replace Main, for example. Finishing 7th instead of 9th is the difference of £120,000, or almost £2,500 per week in potential wages. Any player who's out of contract and wants to stay should be going all-out to finish as high up the table as possible, to win that extra money and enhance the chances of them being offered a new deal. In short, getting it fucking sorted Robbo, and play the best team available. If that means dropping Scott for Main then so be it.
