  1. He was hobbling around at the end of the game, I know that much.
  2. My bad, think I conveniently blocked that bit out haha. I now agree with you.
  3. Seedorf done very well last night, in his 30 minutes or so. Doesn't put him at the top of the pile in our 'best team' absolutely no way !! he has to build on that, starting saturday. Lets not forget 99% of our fan base would have been happy to see the back of him after last season
  4. Such an anti climax, but there were some positives, Seedorf being the main one. Carson and the defence done well enough, penalty aside. Nullified Ross county for the most part. Lang looked bright when he came on, for me the Red card was harsh but he showed enough. He has to put that header away though. Long got himself into some good positions in the first half but the second half he was non existent, Ross county just sat deeper and deeper with no space in behind. Robinson tried to shoehorn Turnbull and Polworth into the same side which I think everyone could agree would be class, we now know it doesn't work and at least he changed it. I doubt we will see that again, thankfully. I had no faith in Donnelly hitting that penalty, that's him now missed the target with his last two so that's another thing we can tick off the list of ever seeing again, for me, it had to be Turnbull. Performance wasn't great, Ross county looked much hungrier in the first 20 minutes and seemed to the extra running that we lacked, they seem to be quite street wise, which we don't . I suppose that comes with having an older squad. very very disappointing but not a complete disaster, hopefully we see two WINGERS on saturday, with a midfield involving Turnbull and Campbell.
  5. BBC has lang down as making his debut tonight, whether that's off the bench who knows. Suspect we will see Tony watt start tonight, based on the fact he has had a 'full' pre season. The rest is anyones guess, 5 subs gives us plenty of chance to mix it up if need be.
  6. Polworth anywhere other than the middle of the park is a complete non starter, he gets (god knows why) a hard enough time for not tracking back, imagine the grief he would get playing out wide. Absolutely mental that he can provide the amount of assists he did and still get a hard time.
  7. £20 for livingston is steep but you can't really argue with there reasoning on it, if there is a few of you clubbing together it's buttons really. If you start under cutting the season ticket prices then that raises more pressing concerns for there own fan base as opposed to fans of other clubs. If you don't like it don't pay it but for me they are valid enough reasons.
  8. I was thinking this, but nine times out of ten, if the old firm are away from home they will be on sky, so Livi tv won't be able to show it, I could be miles off the mark here?
  9. The first goal I wouldn't put down to Lamie, Allan Campbell made a mess of his header. He also won the ball in the 'penalty' you have decided to give against him.
  10. Few things on twitter that the game is off and has been rescheduled til tomorrow, covid results not back in time?
  11. Mentioned it previously, If it is a move to Newcastle or Leeds, spending 6 months on loan up here until January can't be the worst shout with our season starting in two weeks time and the Premier league probably still three months away from restarting.
  12. This was posted on P&B, boy in the background wearing number 13? any ideas, Chris Long? Based on absolutely nothing btw, other than one second I think it sort of looks like him and the next I think it looks nothing like him.
  13. if it were to be a move to an English side, surely a 6 month loan back to us wouldn't be the worst idea with our season starting in three weeks and the English sides still to even finish this season. Otherwise Turnbull is looking at a very very long time without playing.
  14. Stoke interested in Turnbull according to the record, as is Steve Bruce at Newcastle
  15. being on Sky, a stream won't be particularly difficult to come across anyway.
  16. Gillespie confirmed at Newcastle on a 3 year deal, fair play to him. No doubt getting his motherwell wage ten times over on that contract. You have to wonder how much football he is actually going to play in those 3 years though, could genuinely not play a single senior game in that time which at 28 would be a massive step back coming into his prime years so to speak. Good on him but.
  17. I will opt for the latter of the two, definitely have there fans on strings.
  18. Agree with the above, definitely a player there. one on one I was always confident he would score. I loved that 2nd goal away to Dundee. in fact, that was just a cracking day out.
  19. This is now being discussed on a rangers forum according to someone in my group chat.
  20. Also, in the case of Jamie Murphy, it wouldn't be a loan to aid his development. He is also out of contract next season at rangers so it could be with a view to getting him permanently.
  21. I think uefa subsidise some of the travel bill. Maybe not all, but i seem to remember this coming up when we played krasnodar.
  22. Maybe didn't phrase it right, a sensible fan maybe the right term? But then are any fans sensible?
  23. Can't imagine there is a fan alive who wants to see the back of Robinson. If he does get the Job he will leave with everyones best wishes. Anyway, worst case scenario, the motherwell job would be right appealing which will hopefully put the usual shouts of Owen coyle and John Hughes to bed.
  24. Are any of those boys better options than o'hara? Or even ready to step up, semple is a different type of midfilder, probably behind tunrbull and polworth in the pecking order. I don't know much about cornelius, highly rated but is he ready for the step up yet? Who else is there, Barry Maguire?
  25. You seem to be the only person who isn't happy with him signing. Solid enough player at our level, we know what we are getting with him, still young enough. Who's pathway does he block, out of interest?
