  1. Thoroughly agree. From the penalty miss we seemed to collapse and the whole team from goalkeeper out it was an awful performance. Perhaps Hartley's injury affected all as there was no calming influence around. Just hope this is not the start of a downward trend as we have a tough time coming up.
  2. Not at game but watched it on Alba. Thought St. Johnstone were lucky to get away with loads of fouls and the lack of cards handed out to them was ridiculous in comparison to our total. I thought Tait did not show up that well, a lot of the trouble seemed to come from that area. However 3 points very welcome at a venue where we gave played much better with nothing to show for it.
  3. Thought we threw game away. After scoring we fell back and looked to be trying to hold on. Many a time we had no one in the attacking half so when a ball did come there was no one there. Could not agree with the manager's substitutions, both Polworth and Scott were playing well and the substitutions were pretty bad. What is it with Motherwell, when they are praised as a good team they seem to throw it all back. A good crowd turned up today and they gave them nothing to cheer about. Carrol's substitution did not surprise me as he had had a bad foul previously and from where I sat in the O'Donnell stand it looked as though he went in with his foot up.

    Vs Hibs

    Thought this was a first class game. They could have won by more if they had taken more of the chances. Impressed by Hartley, he showed what a Captain should do directing all round. Scott also impressed, not afraid to take a man on and beat him. All in all a good performance. Agree that Hibs seem to capitulate after the 2nd goal, although they had a lot of possession they did not show much penetration. Just watched Alba and the 1st penalty shout was definitely a stonewalled.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!

    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,
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
