  1. Yep, obvious only a friendly but it never hurts regardless.
  2. This will be my fifth season watching Motherwell and this has to be the strongest squad I’ve seen. Midfield is miles ahead of any other and right up there as one of the best in the division. Up front we don’t have Moult but we must be stronger overall, certainly if Lang is also signed. The one area that I think you could question is maybe defence with only Gallagher and Carson the stand outs, we don’t really know how the other new addition will pan out but even then with the like of Dunn and Carroll to come back I’m probably being overly harsh. I understand that it’s perfectly possible after all the optimism that we could come crashing back down to earth with a bump and expectations will be higher but we do know the majority of this squad and what they are capable of including the returning Hastie and OHara. The likes of White may turn out to be a flop but I have a feeling he will play his part with the odd goal and he offers something different coming off the bench.
  3. To be fair people don’t have a clue at the size of the fee or how the deal has been put together, is it tied to Kipre ? However I would agree that if it’s the right player ( and we have to trust Robinson on that one ) on a 3 year deal it could end up a money spinner. No one seems to have a bad word to say about him, every club would love to have him back, he’s young, and from the clips definitely has some skill and looks very confident.
  4. Clearly the club are comfortable paying these fees, I take it they have calculated the losses alongside anything recieved.
  5. I actually think within a couple of seasons down south he would be too good and expensive for Celtic. He’s got everything needed to make it in the Premier league, not just the talent but he’s mentally switched on for his age.
  6. For me he’s a Motherwell player now and who knows may sign permanently at some stage if things go well. The past is the past and I can pretty much guarantee we will get better performances out of him if we support rather than abuse him. When we get back as supporters I will be cheering him on exactly the same as any other player.
  7. Maybe more money coming in from a player leaving down south ?
  8. Also depends if the Kipre fee to us was in instalments. If so and they still owe us that could surely be factored in.
  9. I think Hastie probably realises he’s not, and never will be Turnbull standard, but then that applies to just about every Motherwell player over the last few years. Certainly in the four to five years I’ve been watching the club no one else is even close. So yes I think you are probably right so why not take the money, I would.
  10. Most of these cars are just leased rather than purchased, they are not actually that expensive doing it that way. I’m pretty sure many of the big clubs have deals with the likes of Audi/BMW/Mercedes.
  11. He’s probably worth three to four times that.
  12. The other .01 would be lying.
  13. I simply quoted you because I did not believe he was being bigoted and when it’s directed towards someone it does tend to flame things. Maybe just a misunderstanding, it’s generally pretty cordial on here.
  14. Come on guys. For what it’s worth I don’t think there was any bigotry in the post by Shaka.
  15. Just thought I would copy and paste the video for anyone interested to be honest. Looking at it does it back up the “one trick pony” line ? Maybe.
  16. I agree, if any club were able to get him back on track it’s us. We all need to get behind him now he’s back, booing is not going to end up helping.
  17. The return of Moult would sort that out.
  18. I think you’re been slightly harsh, he’s a player the management team know and will still be available for plenty of games, if he does end up a key player then he’s been doing a job in those other games. We will only be playing a part of his wages and if he impresses so much that he goes back in January we get a cut of any transfer fee should he move on from Rangers. For what it’s worth I don’t see him ever been a Rangers regular so who knows he may actually sign a permanent deal with us at some stage if things go well. Regarding the move to Rangers I think the club played a blinder, they obviously knew giving a long term deal too early was a risk based on a few first team appearances after less than spectacular loan moves and if we did indeed receive 400k it’s actually more than he’s worth in my view. I personally have my reservations about his attitude but time will tell.
  19. I started off pretty unimpressed with Long, he seemed unable to control the ball half the time and thought he would end up drifting out of the squad at some stage. However he really did show a marked improvement as the season progressed and I would love to see him stay now.
  20. Turnbull will join Celtic at some point in my view.
  21. I voted Campbell and Gallagher.
  22. Having heard Dunn’s musical choice pounding out as he passed us on the way to the ground a few months ago I pity those that may have had to listen to it for hours.
