    Time to pull out the "Moult" deal and offer the same package to Turnbull for the duration of him time with us. My thoughts are if celtic deal dead (hopefully) then we might get a preseason and some early Betfred games out of DT... and then after some solid perfomances we may get more bids to our liking, particularly teams maybe holding back to see the full options.

    Surely this wasnt serious? The lad is one of our own and he has behaved amazingly through his short first team career with us. As unsavoury it will be, DT in a rival strip, its economics of the game. Deserves nothing but applause, he's a hero!!

    Diagree on the first two points Agree on your third Im not seething that Turnbull hasn't made the squad, but I do think it's opportunity missed (experience for the lad, chance for closer assessment for the Mgt team) especially when Clarke was in a great position to recognise Turnbull over other inclusions.

    I thought we had snatched this guy early, and if he is training already then he really is an eager beaver to prove he can slot into the hole in our midfield

    Turnbulls contract is probably as good as anyone at the club, but I hope there is internal talk to get the lad properly paid which might be enough to get an extra year on his deal and keep him in our jersey for another full year. Turnbull is once in a generation for us and we will get a return on him, I just hope we get to enjoy him some more. All the positive headlines and then type of wages getting paid for Hastie for instance, you couldn't blame Turnbull if he gets itchy feet at some point and wants his taste of the bigger £££!! I'm sure we were putting a package together for Moult 18 months ago, it's a no brainer to do it for Turnbull. Heard Craigan getting put on the spot on BTSport today and he said at least a million to land him. Robinson said more like the money paid for John McGinn. Who knows, but think Robinson is much closer to what I think.

    £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.

  11. 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
  13. 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.
