  1. 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 .
  2. 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.
  3. Add to that is the fact that a sizeable number of our young 'fans' were letting rip with the " Motherwell Sieg Heil' pish. Wish these 'followers' of our club would stop attending our games as they are having a bad effect on our reputation.
  4. For a guy who came to us with a reputation of being moody and unreliable I feel he deserves great credit for his last 2 performances. Against St Mirren he gave his all for 120 mns and yesterday ran his socks off despite his lone striker role following Long's shall I say ' indiscretion' . Have also been impressed by his deftness of touch , imagination and creativity. Not bad either when heading. Early days I know but I see in his play a likeness to Ciftci and ( whisper it) Cobra Coyne . If he can sustain his early promise together with improved fitness I feel Watt could be a major influence in our drive for Europe.
  5. Of all the question marks about our set up last night the main one for me is why the manager in Gallagher's absence played Mugabi--- a player who had repeatedly shown an inability to perform at premier League level. Instead imho he could easily have played Donnelly ( who he recruited as a central defender) alongside Hartley with O' Hara taking Donnelly's place in midfield. Donnelly and O'Hara's second half performances justify this view I feel. On a separate point and as part mitigation for Hartley's showing, I feel he had to spend a fair bulk of the first half ' nursemaiding' Mugabi--- rather than concentrating on his own game. Will be a real test of Robinson and the team to recover from last night. Fingers crossed.
  6. If Dec doesn't make it I would put Donnelly in his place and O'Hara to come into midfield. Rather this than Bevis who remains unconvincing.
  7. Also Katic's goal at FP + last Saturday at Livi 's goal when he looked as if he had his boots in cement. He'll no dae!
  8. Desperately trying to take something from today I would say that every team each season has a stinker. Today was ours. Also important to remember that we are 3 rd in the league and that the teams around us in the league ( other than Aberdeen) didn't eat into our points. Dust ourselves down and learn.
  9. I'm aware a few 'Well fans are thinking this will be straightforward. Word of caution. Accies will deploy same tactics that saw them unluckily lose recently at Celtic Park. We will I feel have to be very patient and be prepared to go deep into the match before securing victory. Can see a 1-0 victory for us which will send us all happy into the break.
  10. Some chat going the rounds in Dingwall last night points towards a Jamie Murphy return on loan.
  11. Sorry for confusion over the date. Alcohol already having an effect.
  12. Spoke with a Livi mate of mine who watched his team beat County 4-0. He said County were abject only managing 1 shot on goal. He believes Motherwell will destroy County. Appreciate that every game is different and yes County may have some of their ill players back but any confidence boost is always welcome. Plus we have a score to settle from earlier in the season when we lost a game we should have won. Pretty sure Carrol won't have forgotten the particular County player who feigned injury resulting in his sending off!!!!
  13. Wee shout out for O'Hara. Yesterday he looked fairly composed throughout and won the free kick from which we scored. Can see him replacing the injured Donnelly on Thursday with Polworth returning to his usual beat.
  14. Like every other fan I really want Mugabi to be a roaring success . Also IMHO I feel he gives us 100% every game. But I remain to be convinced about him . What I see is repeated poor positioning, wasteful when in possession and an overall uncertainty in his play. Add to that of the 2 set pieces leading to goals we have conceded against Rangers this season he has been mainly responsible. Also feel he was lucky not to have conceded a penalty for scrambling all over Morelos yesterday. What I can't get my head around is why he is being favoured over Hartley who by the very fact is on the bench has to be fit. Now, I ain't suggesting Hartley is Maldini but what he offers is sound reading of the game and a reliability which to my eyes breeds confidence throughout the team . He also doesn't require Gallagher to look out for him ( as is the case with Mugabi). Yup, at end of the day Robinson knows more about the game than I could ever hope to know. I'm just puzzled.
  15. Noticed in Saint Mirren programme last night that he is " being linked with a move to England in the forthcoming January transfer window". Have I missed something?
