  1. Spot on, there are only 2 clubs in the premiership who are ever going to win it, of the other 10 there are possibly 4 or 5, Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts, Motherwell, St J and Dundee untd, who will fight for a top 6 place and European qualification. The rest will be fighting relegation and hoping for an unlikely cup win. This has been a poor season for us, but in reality we missed a top 6 spot by a couple of defeats, so for me as a fan, a top 6 finish a decent cup run and a bid for a Euro spot would constitute a great season.
  2. I was referring to the form we were in off the back of the Accies and StJ shitfests we went there and nobody expected us to get anything other than a defeat. But we turned up with the right attitude and application and got a result, we need the same again.
  3. We were just as bad when we went there and won 2-0 , so it depends on what Motherwell team turns up on the day, if its the committed, in the hib s faces right from the off team, we are more than capable of winning, Hibs are an average side having a decent season nothing more.
  4. The playoff final is not a good game to judge Barraclough or the team we had then on, we were up against a Rangers team that were utter dross and the 6-1 aggregate win confirmed that fact.
  5. Lucky teams win cups, and in the context of Scotland that usually means the rare seasons that both ugly sisters have went out in earlier round. We have made 4 finals since 91 which I think is a decent record for a club our size. 2005 LC Rangers 2017 LC Celtic 2011 SC Celtic 2017 SC Celtic So no easy Diddy teams in the final for us, occasionally a team will have a good result and beat Celtic or Rangers in a semi final as we did in 91 but it is very rare for both of the ugly sisters to be out before the semi finals. So would the likes of StM or StJ have won had they been playing Rangers or Celtic, probably not.
  6. Hibs cruising past Stranraer currently 4-0, looks like a tough ask to get past them in the QF's but we have gone to Easter Rd and beaten them recently so it is not impossible.
  7. As a short time signing , for me yes, not so sure long term, I said in January he was what we were looking for, big target man who knows where the goals are, given his reputation as difficult to manage, maybe Tommy Wright knows how to handle him.
  8. He mentioned it on the pre match chat before the game last night, think it was recorded at the normal press conference on Thursday.
  9. I agree re the summer rebuild but we have max of 7 games left this season if we get to the cup final, but in reality probably only 5, so we need to find a balance to get a midfield line up that works and give us a decent end to the season. If GA is sticking with his preferred 433 I would have Campbell, McGuire and Hastie in there , and see how that pans out.
  10. We have had an issue with midfield for years and successive managers have failed to address it, a 4-3-3 formation will work but you need midfielders who can win the ball, hold up the play and offer an extra attacking threat going forward, oh to have Turnbull back. For me brining in 1 or 2 good midfield players is the main issue that needs to be addressed in the summer .
  11. Think Watt is still getting about on crutches Dave, so he won't be fit, and I suspect Roberts is out for the season, so we are a bit short on options up front, I would go with Cole, Long and Hastie up front against Accies, as Lawless was pretty ineffectual tonight.
  12. Pish what did Morton do to deserve the win, both teams were utter dross, 1 save for each keeper in 123 mins. Shit refereeing denied us a stonewall pen, Long hit the post, Hastie and Cole both had decent chances and should have scored, whereas Morton had 1 decent chance in normal time and we gifted them an equaliser. So on balance we had the better chances our keeper was very rarely troubled so yes we did deserve to win, onwards to the QF's
  13. Do the pens count for your bet on Motherwell scoring more than 2
  14. Stop feckin whinging, it's a cup game main objective met, we won , total dugshite for 119 mins, but all that matters is we are in the quarter finals. We were pish against morton 30 years ago and look how that cup run turned out, coyw
  15. Nothing good ever comes from betting on Motherwell ,hope it comes in though
  16. Aye, been there as well, we used to sing a nice wee song about section B w... w... w... never had any entertainment like that with the wee fuds that pass for Accies fans.
  17. I would love Kelly to stay for at least another season if he is up for it and it works for both Motherwell and QPR financially. However that would give us a problem with Carson, assuming he is fit for the start of the new season, would he be happy as 2nd choice and if so will Morrison hang around as 3rd choice , and when will Fox be fit? I see difficult choices for GA re who is his 1st choice keeper, but maybe having 4 keepers on the books is a luxury we can't afford.
  18. It's never been a Derby, up until this recent spell in the premiership they were never in the same league as us, we only ever played them in in the Lanarkshire Cup when that still ran and the occasional Scottish or league cup game. You need to be an explorer to find an accies fan, anytime we are at the cannabis stadium or whatever its called we outnumber them about 10 to 1,, the same when they are at Fir park, no fans. So all this derby and feeling a bit more needle talk is pish, when they get relegated they will be the same as Airdrie, and Albion Rovers, ie another shitey wee Lanarkshire side wishing they were as well run, well supported, and as good as the best team in the county ie us.
  19. Probably, they are a shitey club with no fans, shithole of a stadium, and one of the worst pitches in Scotland, they bring nothing to the premiership, so the sooner they are back in the lower leagues the better. The dream finish to the season for me is Accies finishing in 12th and Killie in 11th and getting g pumped in the playoff, gets rid of 2 shit pitches at once. Oh and Ross County is a good away day.
  20. It does not matter that much this season as there are no fans in the grounds ,but moving the whole weekend fixture list around to accommodate a televised funeral that probably 75% of the country won't watch or give a shit about is fekin nonsense. But given its the SFA organising it it does not surprise me. Given the pandemic and the ongoing problems facing the country there are far more important issues to sort out, the whole response to this has been way over the top.
  21. The perfect scenario next week is us beating Accies to go to 41 pts with Killie and RC both not winning, then we are mathematically safe.
  22. Well said , people are dying every day so no need to rearrange the world, and probably half the country don't give a shit Anyway, a private family funeral is all that's needed.
  23. So the once upon a time worst case scenario is us finishing bottom and automatic relegation on goal difference, that would be bad, just as well it's not going to happen.
  24. The Most points RC and Killie can get is 42 and 41 pts respectively, if that's the case Accies can only get 33, so a win next week and other results going for us would see us safe .
