    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    £1M for 2x propspects is good business! If both guys were on long term contracts, what would their real market value be? (interested clubs usually dictate... but the club can say 'No' to offers. Would there be the same level of interest?) Again, if both were secured on contracts, how much more (than the development fees) would the club be looking for IF interest transpired? Think of the fees accepted for Moult / Kipre / Marvin Johnson... are either propspects at the same level?? If Jake stays a while, then great , the questions above might be answered and the development fees increases for the next point his contract is near ending. If he goes, then the club is richer for it and it has showcased the model and platform for the next generation choosing Motherwell! Im happy to support both players in a motherwell shirt while they are here.

    Who Stays And Who Goes?

    Some varied opinion on players, a good read! Worth taking into account that players out of contract might have no interest in resigning and be looking to move on, while also players in contract (i.e. Turnbull, Hastie, Dunne) might have suitors and be part of the model 'need to sell a player'. I suspect there are underlying matters with Cadden (carrying injury but playing / transfer talk) and Mchugh (captaincy / concussion) that impacted their performances and recent game time. I doubt we could get more qualified replacements from our usual transfer sources and I think we would do great if we could retain both players! Others out of contract also have continued value to the club if we could retain. Whilst there has been some eye piercing games to watch, we have stayed in division ( 17/18, 18/19... looks that way) and its down to having better players than 4 or 5 other clubs who are not improving anytime soon. Our gradual introduction of our youth is promising and what most fans want/believe in, but it would be mad for a complete cull. We need some seasoned campaigners to support and bring the youngsters on. I trust the club judgement as a whole more than 90% of the short term views splattered in this and other threads on who brings what to the team.

  5. Santa had the day off, but no worries, St Mirren got a real Christmas present today; 3 points, gift wrapped by Robinson signed by the full team! What a waste of a good pitch, I'm sure it's designed for football, but not sure many at the club know it. Our under 20s team would do that st mirren, easily.

    Doesn't have the non-league / England C credentials; fails to meet the criteria
  7. What a horror today. Surely can only get better? How can on earth has Connor Sammon made a career in football? In similar time I've seen them gracing the 'well shirt, James Scott has a better touch, he can win challenges in the air, he can head a ball better, he links up better with teamates, and he has a better head of hair (and better tan). 2 games, zero goals....i think we need a better striking option before window closes.

    2018'19 Game 1: Hibernian (A) Sunday 5th August

    Many of us had wrote this game off with injuries, suspensions and further depletion of the squad with Kipre sale. The score so far hurts, but IMO it was inevitable. Hopefully some of the players step up in remainder of game.

    Is he? Not by much if so, and unlikely going to have an impact if Boyle get a chance to run at the back line. Tait is tireless and committed, but no much pace! I'd keep Tait in wingback where he is most effective. Centre backs should know how to play pacey strikers.

    Maybe he is better than Barry maguire. I think that Ross county under 20s squad has been good past couple of years, so maybe one they had to let go reluctantly cause they will not carry large squad in championship.

    International Call Ups

    Cadden gets 4 minutes and zero touch in a 2 nil defeat. Shame as Kenny McLean was labouring for ages and should have been hooked long ago. Cadden made a good run on 90mins that would have got him through on goal, but no vision from McBurnie who (is a total donkey) played it backwards. Keeper howler led to Peruvian first goal (penalty). Mulgrew ball watching at the second. Murphy started and was subbed, that was extent of his night. No stand outs at all.
