  1. The ever reliable bbc gossip column reporting that us and hibs are set to miss out on oddofin, to rotherham.
  2. Never seen the game, i wouldn't have changed the team from saturday though. Van veen gaveus a focal point, Donnelly is miles ahead of crawford. Need bodies in badly.
  3. sure I heard Craigan mention them doing a double session on Tuesday as well which can't be easy on the legs.
  4. Mugabi is still going through Rehab for his injury. The league cup games are a fine balance between picking the right squad, in terms of where players are with their fitness and going and winning the game, it wasn't pretty last night, at all, but we won, job done, much bigger test on saturday. Queens park looked much sharper, I am not sure how many friendlies they have played though, they also have one competitive game ticked off as well, and it showed. I wouldn't look into it too much though. Positives, I thought O'Connor done okay, Cornelius showed some nice flashes, Woolery showed he has something and Van Veen chipped the keeper, got boo'ed and flung the ball away. PLENTY of room for improvement, not going to come on here and have a go at individuals, we all know this is a glorified pre season friendly. we won, onto Saturday.
  5. And chipping the keeper 3 minutes after coming on.
  6. This midfield is miles off it.
  7. Can you apply for the ballot if you took up the standing order option for the season ticket? fwiw, season ticket holders should always get first dibs at tickets IMO, once in a blue moon is there a ticket scramble for a Motherwell fixture. St mirren in the scottish a few seasons ago, Fortmartine last season would probably have been the same.
  8. Record reporting Matthew Connolly has signed a new deal.
  9. seeing a lot of Kevin van veen, Followed by the 'eye' emoji on twitter.
  10. Ness is an interesting one, he was a hot prospect back in the day. Walked away from Dundee, however the chat from most of their fans is that he would be a quality signing. I think he had problems with his mental health? Not against the signing, an interesting one though.
  11. The Twitter replies are some laugh. Must have been about 6 trialists and the same again from the youth intake who are about 16.
  12. one of the most impressive highlight reels I have watched, well worth the ten minutes.
  13. I have always said that Lawless was the one player that we let go that could have done a job for us, hard to see make a good case for it now right enough. I can't think of too many more that have forged a good career in the premiership. I think maybe Nicky Devlin is another one who seems to have done well. is there many more? On Lawless, I am certain we will see the player we were hoping, he had a bit of a shite time when he signed, between a total lack of football and injuries once he gets a good pre season under his belt we will HOPEFULLY see the player we expected.
  14. I'd be very surprised if we signed a combative midfielder, or at least I don't imagine it is a high priority, especially with Donnelly coming back, Mark O'Hara and Crawford both signed.

    Chris Long

    I totally agree on Watt, btw, his attitude and application is absolutely spot on. Which i must admit to being surprised at based on what we all heard as fans about him. I also agree with you on the bodies we will miss more than Chris Long. I think I have tried to put forward such a strong case for him to the point I think he is be all and end all, that definitely in the case. I always wanted Long to do well (as we all did of course) but i always thought with confidence he would really kick on. The beauty of forums, no one ever agrees on everything. Scotland time now, enjoy.
