  1. Thought we played really well in the first half, unfortunately their second goal seemed to take the feet from us and our confidence evaporated. Defensively we don't seem to be able cover ourselves with glory. Up front we are very lightweight, too easily robbed of the ball. However as I have said before I still think we have the makings of a team and am willing to give them time. It's a big step up for a lot of the newcomers and hope they will take it to heart and try to build themselves up, a lot of naivety was obvious against an experienced Celtic team.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Could not manage to game, however had car radio on and Alan Preston was very critical of the pitch. He also said that these pitches should be banned in top flight football. So obviously the pitch would have made a difference.

    Thought Donnelly was first class. Polworth and Semple were good in the first half. Thought it was quite a difficult game as Annan were outclassed and pushed and fouled too often. Too early to say as the opposition has not been great, but have hopes for the new season. If the complainers think we aren't good enough then maybe they should compare us to the other Premier teams!

    2019-20 League Cup

    First half was pretty poor. Second half with subs made quite a difference. All in all there is some hope for the season. The pitch was diabolical, bouncing every which way,
  5. Think it is typical of old firm, the other half are saying they should sign him. The figures they quote are a joke, considering what they quote for some of their lot. I also wish Alan B would keep his mouth shut about what they would want, today offers of 3 million is reported.
  6. Looked forward to this game. But really disappointed with the display. Thought we started well, played some nice football but still looked pretty toothless. However the defence was appalling, played worse than a bunch of schoolboys, the errors they made were so amateur. Then listened to the manager on radio scotland and could not believe that he did not mention the defensive mistakes but put the blame on the young inexperienced players making the wrong decisions. The mistakes were all caused by our more mature players who could not get rid of the ball quickly enough and anywhere would do. They made a very ordinary Rangers team look really good. What happens with our team when they play them?

    That is my opinion and I really don't care where he works but glad he's not with us. Whether he said it 10 years or 10 minutes ago, he did say it. You can have your opinion as I have mine.

    McCulloch lost my respect when he uttered "always been a Rangers fan". Anything to get on the side of the bluenoses. Glad he did not get job.
  9. Again I have to say that this is a terrible team. Playing hoofball and any player with the slightest football ability is completely lost. Today was so cold and there was nothing at all to raise one's spirits, so demoralizing. On the way home with the car radio on, the Ross County owner said that going down has cost £600,000. If that happens to us then we at Motherwell will be finished. Time those at the top realise that and do something before it's too late. If we had put in shifts like these players have done we would have been given the boot! No doubt we will be treated to the usual apologies from the players and management but come the next home game we will be treated to the usual dross. We have an appalling home record and I can only remember 1 game where we played decently. All teams must love to come to Fir Park, it is so easy for them. I am so fed up I am considering not going back. That's bad after all these years of supporting the claret and Amber.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Looks good to me. Only worry is that he is too fast for our lot and will end up crossing the ball to an empty space! It's a long time since I've seen someone as fast and can tackle too. No wonder he gets injured, they'll hack the legs from him up here.
  11. Couldnot get to game today, probably I was the lucky one. I cannot believe the rubbish that is being served up. Although after watching last year's friendly and this year's, I was of the opinion that the team was pretty rotten and I'm afraid that is turning out to right, Have watched the team for over 50 years and can honestly say that taking the whole team there is only 1 player of any class and that's young Turnbull. We'll never be anything with the debt hanging over us, not being able to afford a decent player. I would say fan ownership is not our saviour with such a poor core support. Where is Mr. Burroughs now? He had plenty to say when we were doing well in the Cup.
  12. Unable to get there tonight. Listened to radio 2nd half and according to their reporters we played much better after a bad 1st. However to lose 2 players after 15 minutes and manage to hold on is a positive, I had no hopes before the game after week-end performance so I'll take the point happily.
  13. Thought that was a great performance today. Not a failure in the whole team. It seemed to me that they were out to show that the Rangers performance was a wake up call. They were a little shaky to start with, but quickly settled into things, they also played some nice football at times. Watched the manager giving advice so hats of to him too for the changes he made today. On a different track, can't believe the way these teams get away with pulling and wrapping arms round our players, yet we get pulled up as fouls on numerous occasions because the opposition are more worldly aware and fall down thereby giving the referees an easy decision. Think we should wise up.

    Reserves/Under 20's/Youths

    Thought our boys did extremely well today against a team of really "old" heads who got away with a lot from a referee who seemed not to see their holding and pushing. Where do these refs come from? We seem to get the thick end of the stick from most of them. Ross County players fouled all the game but nothing really happened yet our boy is sent off. Can't say too much sbot it because I did not see what happened but our supporters were really mad with Cowie. Seemed to me that they cheated against our young colts. On another theme, these lads certainly showed guts with their performance with 10 men unlike the lily livered first team at Ibrox last week. I hope they watched and felt burning shame for themselves Congratulations to the Colts they did really well and deserved the ovation they got from the fans who were there, pity a few more could not have turned up!

    Where are the bois?

    Where are the bois? It was very obvious on Saturday that lots of these boys were absent. They can be idiots at times but they always made plenty of noise, which is sadly lacking at Fir Park. We cannot afford to lose the support of the young. There seemed to be a number of the bois hanging about around Manse Road and I heard them asking others how the game went. Anyone know the answer to my question?
