    This is far from over though - there's still Steelboy's appeal to be heard by the judge now....

    Some points; Perhaps it was not your intention but you give the impression that the ' fans' only spouted 'Sieg Heil' not in its offensive context but due to some nuanced philosophical standpoint on the term's origins. Who is kidding who? As witnessed and heard by me and mates it was a sizeable group both inside and outside the ground. Fact. As to the club appreciating their support I think it's fair to say that some doubt has to be cast on this when we look at the club's position on inclusion ( family club) and us being a signatory to the SPFL's position on Unacceptable Conduct. Moreso as the club would be at serious risk of being brought to book. Finally, I attended the Hearts game in the company of a few guys of the Jewish faith. To say they were pissed off with these 'fans' is an understatement as is their anger with your apparent rationalisation of Sieg Heil crys from this group. Would have been interesting to see you justify your post to them!! MFC have now lost my mates potential support despite my efforts to persuade them to give it another try. This is really sad as they were drawn to the club because of its good reputation. As to my comments as you infer being holier than thou . Well if that means calling out offensive behaviour ( when it is clearly that) then I can live with that. Rather that description than that of an apparent apologist/ minimiser.

    Wee thought . Perhaps a further benefit of this site. If any of our fans are struggling to get supplies in during this crisis I wonder if others could help. I'm in Livingston and would be happy to assist as far as possible. Just pm me and I'll get back .

    I may be a CV-vulnerable wrinkly who's had pneumonia twice and been hospitalised as a result but at least this crisis has spared us the cringeworthy "Curtis Main will come back to haunt us" froth we normally have to endure in such a fixture. Since Friday night will probs be our last match for a while, I will proudly take my position on top of the POD and rain sarcasm on Cosgrove and the other Mutton Molesters from a safe distance. Tobar na Mathair gu brath, ya bass!

    At the start of the season how many of us thought we would be in the top six? Well done to the manager and the players. Next up Aberdeen. So let's push on now

    You can't be serious about Polworth. He didn't waste a pass all night and played two absolutely superb through balls, the 2nd of which was probably the pass of the season.

    It's been fun watching the retro 90's rules where you can pass the ball back for the keeper to pick up and assault the keeper in mid-air without getting a foul against you.

    My mate has just told me his old man received a phone call from Tony Watt yesterday, asking if he was ok and if he needed anything. Apparently the club are calling all season ticket holders over 70. Really nice touch.

    In about two weeks no one will give a fuck about the football and the outcome of the league. Far more important things to worry about right now.

    Simple answer is this... Each team nominates someone who's decent at FIFA on PS4. Games are played in the executive lounge or wherever in each teams stadium, which constitutes a home match. We have the games streamed live on YouTube for fans to watch, and the teams manager is allowed to sit a few feet away from the players and shout at them while offering encouragement. Bish bash bosh, season sorted. Who we nominating? Turnbull? He's had a decent amount of time on the couch this season, his FIFA game must be strong.

    I've had to stop watching the news. The wild and pointless speculation just drives me nuts, and the media seem intent on whipping up their favourite fear, panic and hysteria. I watched an good interview last night with a guy that specialises in human assessment of risk and fear, and he was much more sensible. He wasn't for one second playing down the potential seriousness of the situation, but was pointing out how irrational human responses can be in an attempt to give them some sense of control. Bulk buying of toilet paper when there is no shortage of the stuff is a great example. According to a recent article New England Journal of Medicine, the overall mortality rate may be less than 1% once the final number of infected people is established. Evidence for this comes in part from China where once the the Wuhan outbreak had been identified, the other areas of that had time to prepare to care for patients are seeing a mortality rate of 0.7% - still substantially more than the 0.1% of the flu, but not the figures originally feared. The recent SARS virus had a mortality rate of around 10% and Covid-19 is far less deadly than that, and far less deadly than MERS or Ebola. I'm not for one second suggesting we don't need to take steps to address the situation and keep people as safe and healthy as possible, and it's better that governments prepare for the worst while hoping for the best. I just find the 24x7 "WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!" coverage as exhausting as it is unhelpful and suspect it will lead to a lot of unnecessary stress. The various regional and national health agency websites are providing information in a much more balanced and helpful way.

    If you had common sense you'd realise everything else that comes with it. Crowds travelling on public transport, crowds pre-drinking in pubs. It's not all about the actual open air match. Not to mention the police and health care professionals that have to attend that will be much more useful elsewhere. Engage your brain.

    This could go on for a while though. Apparently 70% of the population will get it at some point but governments are willing to go into near lockdown when less than 0.1% of people have it. It seems like madness to me. Surely it would be better for vunerable people to isolate and everyone else to get on with it.

    Second time the boy has signed an extension when others may have opted to let the contract run out and make more cash elsewhere. Fair play to him, shows a level of loyalty to the club that is rare these days.

    What a lot of complete and utter dross that video was. Nothing against Turnbull but it was a lot of self-indulgent shite. From listening to him gushing about Celtic to us basically trying to punt him as some sort of second coming of Christ.... Boke.... Can we just get back to actually showing some decent footage, giving decent match updates and dropping all this misty eyed "we go again" pish?

    I haven't bought one the past few years due to travelling, but fuck it, I'll maybe buy one this season. Even if I don't get as much use out of it as I'd like.

    On part two the link with the Scottish Health Education Group started in the mid-eighties (you might remember the "Motherwell, Motherwell, Go for Good Health and be a Winner as Well" abomination) so there was health related stuff up across the ground from them on. I can remember, or at least have seen images showing firstly an advert on the roof that something along the lines of "half way down Robertson Street" on. The first SHEG advert that I can remember had something like "Go for Good Health and Get Fit for Life" on the roof. That was on it when the East Stand opened in 1991. "How Much Do you Cough Up for Cigarettes" was on it a few years after that. After the Cooper was built the Main Stand and East Stand both got new facias for a more consistent look across four stands so on the basis that the Cooper opened in 1995 I'd say the change of signage would have come in the aftermath of that. When exactly I couldn't say.

    I was only 8 back in 91 so i dont remember a great deal from being at the game or the day in general but the one thing i do remember was my rangers supporting pal begging to be stevie kirk when we went for a kick about out in the street later that night .i never get tired of watching the final,seeing darren jackson greeting like a big lassie when he went up for his medal is a particular delight.

    For half a season, a true Motherwell great. What was your favourite #Vigz moment? His beautiful cross field pass at Tynecastle that nobody bothered to film? His late winner in Inverness that helped secure 2nd? His Zidane-esque volley on his return that all sensible Well fans reluctantly applauded? His handsome Highland smile? Feel free to share more!

    Not sure why it's unrealistic. We'll resume playing at some point in the future and it would seem to make more sense to spend a month wrapping things up with 8 more games than scrapping the previous 30.

    I haven't bothered with a Season Ticket for the past couple of years but I'll definitely get one when they are released to support the club through the spring and summer so hopefully we can get back to playing this year.

    Think you're referring to the pools panel, which was convened to decide results for Scottish and English senior football so the pools could still pay out during the dreadful winter of 1962-3. Being an EK boy, I spent most of my time hunting reindeer on the tundra that season.

    I genuinely- in a completely un-snidey way- love Steelboy's willingness to come out to bat for the most controversial position in every single argument on this website

    Well, why don't you get on the phone to the major sporting leagues around the world that have all cancelled or postponed their seasons? The event organisers taking hits worth hundreds of thousands to cancel open air concerts and suchlike? Tell them all to just continue as normal, because despite what the medical professionals say, it's just a nonsense. I know you're the resident fuckwit, but take a day off, eh? Away and "self-isolate" for a few weeks, will you?

    Don’t disagree with anything you say BUT he would still be in the goldfish bowl that is the West of Scotland and all the hassle that goes along with that ( unable to go out and about socially without a minder being 2ft behind him ) As I’ve said previously look at the young boy Gilmour at Chelsea ( younger than Turnbull) if your good enough you’ll make it at any club.

    Heaven forbid we should be promoting ourselves as a club or our most valuable player. The media folk did a splendid job and gave our fans an insight into the professionalism and dedication and coherence of our club. Regardless of (some) if its intention to quash the rumours and doubts around David Turnbull’s recovery and to put him squarely back in the market place at a time when a contract extension is increasingly unlikely, this was a polished piece of work that made me take pride in the way our club goes about its business. So congratulations to everyone - everyone - involved in this documentary and please keep up the good work.

    A dedicated match day twitter account could well be an idea, which for people like myself can follow if they please and can ignore otherwise. Sometimes, particularly since the turn of the year, no news is good news, especially since any news seems to have been goal for anyone other than motherwell haha. I am sure there is a middle ground somewhere which would have every fan happy. Just realised I implied we could have something that would keep every fan happy and realised how mental I sound.

    The whole Category A vs Category B thing is a ridiculous rip off - our club included. A game against Premiership opposition shouldn't vary in price.
