  1. Actually, he’s a Boyhood Rangers fan. Said that at one of the Q&As. Doesn’t stop him from giving his all though or mean that he doesn’t care about Motherwell.
  2. What about signing David Turnbull on loan from Celtic. Doesn’t seem to be getting game time...
  3. It always galls me that as a fan owned club, we are like the CIA when it comes to transfer dealings. Surely we deserve to know the details, if nothing else, as a way of ensuring good governance and best value. As to the usual arguments: The other club don't want fee disclosed - Don't sell or buy to that club It let's other clubs know how much money we have - So what, we generally don't pay fees anyway Who cares - I do Let's be known as a club who is open about these sort of things and start treating our fans as adults. Genuinely fed up at the word Undisclosed. It feels like we are being treated like mugs. Feels like Trump "We got a great deal, an amazing deal. We couldn't have gotten a better deal" What was that deal? "Sorry, can't tell you, but take my word for it. Maybe even knowing the details of deals may partly take the sting out of losing yet another player. This is MY opinion anyway.
  4. Good article. Seems like a sensible guy.
  5. Given McGinlay out, this would be my team. Carson Donnelly Gallagher Lambie O’Hara Campbell Hastie Turnbull Polworth Watt Long Really a 3-5-2.
  6. I thought Wigan were very unlucky. The free kick that led to the Fulham goal looked a tad harsh.
  7. Exeter were rank rotten. Well beaten.

    Motherwell have added Harry Robinson to the squad on a short-term deal until the end of the 2019/20 season. The Northern Ireland Under 21 international impressed during a training spell, scoring for the reserve side and weighing in with a number of assists in recent weeks. Harry, son of manager Stephen, left Oldham Athletic in the January window. He spent the first half of the campaign on loan with Northern Irish side Crusaders and will spend the remaining few months with Maurice Ross’ side.
  9. What would your team be? For me, it would be: Gillespie Grimshaw Gallagher Donnelly Carroll O'Hara Turnbull Campbell Polworth Long Watt Subs: Carson, Tait, Hartley, Dunne, Hylton, Aarons, MacIver Lacking a central midfielder on the bench, so may bring in Cornelius Thoughts?
  10. To me, the best thing referees can do is to explain the major decisions after the game. This, to my mind, would bring greater respect between fans and referees. Would also give them the chance to admit mistakes (although this part of my thinking is probably a step too far for refs!) Once you hear a referees thinking, perhaps they are not as inconsistent as we think.
  11. 2-1 Ross County for me. We're down to the bare bones and don't have the capacity to make drastic changes. Hope I'm wrong.

    Don't know much about Lamie. Was Gallacher and Halkett that stood out for me.
  13. If Long/Gallacher fit: Gillespie Grimshaw Gallagher Donnelly Tait O'Hara Aarons Campbell Polworth Long Watt If Long/Gallacher not fit: Gillespie Grimshaw Donnelly Hartley Tait O'Hara Aarons Campbell Polworth Hylton Watt

    Keep - Ferguson or Gillespie, Tait, Dunne, Long. Woud sign O'Hara permanently if that's an option. The rest can go. Maybe keep Hartley?
