    Season Ticket Advice

    I don't think anyone is saying otherwise. but it defeats the purpose of an automated online renewal system. The initial confusion has been caused by contradictory information contained in the automated confirmation e-mails which shouldn't be too difficult to fix. I'm sure they will get there in the end and given this is the first season of online renewals it is understandable. In the grand scheme of things it's not a big deal.

    Season Ticket Advice

    I had the same thing when renewing mine back in May and I'm going to phone up and check as I don't have much faith my card will be re-activated otherwise. I've not had any e-mail stating it will be. I know it's a relatively new system but it still needs a bit of work if truth be told.

    Chop a foot off the legs and we can use it for Campbell. Noone will ever know!

    We're hardly into the transfer window and have already secured bids from the Scottish premiership champions and English championship champions/Premier league new boys Norwich City. That's a pretty good indicator there is strong interest out there. I think we have let Celtic dictate the terms of the transfer in respect to the timing and had the option to stay strong but didn't. And that's not to say I don't understand the reasons why we accepted their offer or the pressures on Burrows and the board to do so. The only sure thing is we will never know what could have been.

    Burrows made it clear we decided to deal at that price and listed a whole host of reasons why it would be too risky to hold out for a better bid. That doesn't happen If there's a release clause. If there was, and our initial statement was to soften the blow to the fans of losing our star player to 'them' then why not just come out and say Celtic have triggered his release and we have to let them talk to him. I think most would have begrudgingly accepted that. This is looking like a missed opportunity the longer it goes on.

    The annoying thing is if we had played it right there could have been a proper bidding war. Now all that happens is the player's terms improve with each offer and we get nowt more.

    Somehow I don't think this is done and dusted yet...

    Confirmed by multiple sources including the BBC and herald. "Significant" sell on also mentioned

    David Turnbull clearly has confidence in his own ability, maybe Burrow's and the rest of the board should take note.

    I'm not so sure. Given DT apparently went against his agents advice when he signed the extension with us I think this is more likely a personal decision, even a footballing one. The boy seems smart enough to know that Celtic is not the move to enhance his career.

    Call me old fashioned but I'd quite like to see him playing for Motherwell again.

    Where has the release clause chat come from? Burrows has already stated in his tweets it was the boards decision to accept the offer as it was too risky to hold out for a bigger bid that might never come. Plus why would there be add ons if the release clause had been met?

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    The thing that annoys me is why have we accepted the offer so soon into the transfer window? Even if there are no concrete offers on the table from England just now doesn't mean there won't be in the near future. Things move quickly and as players move and the deadline approaches, offers are often made out of the blue. As Burrows himself tweeted, yes it's a risk, but I think it is one most fans would have been willing to take. The worst that could happen is we see David Turnbull in a Motherwell shirt again.

    So no release clause, it was the board's decision to sell after all.

    We're determined to shoot ourselves in the foot today.

    Main is having his usual ineffective game. Hibs have done their homework and are doubling up on Hastie and Ariyibi Grimshaws defensive limitations are being exposed. I see Hastie and Ariyibi have bow swapped sides for all of 2 minutes.
