    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    True, guys like Cooper and Russell weren’t great tacklers but they offered the team far more than Bigi and were better footballers, they could influence games more with their ability. Gorrin also appears a better player. Good luck to Bigi tho, seemed a decent bloke.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    The crowd yesterday was on the back of a win against Accies and two weeks with no football think the sad truth is there isn't an appetite anymore for football in the area. The crowd on Wednesday will be poor, I am undecided, that's down to the attitude and display yesterday tho.

    Scottish Cup 4th Round Motherwell v Ross County Sat 19th January (H)

    Been a big Robbo supporter but that was awful... Played like a friendly on our part, anyway. When Robinson first came he was out barking away but he didn't seem bothered today. The cup is the one chance of adding some interest to the season... Can only hope we get dragged into relegation dogfight to add some meaning to season. Continue like that and there's every chance.

    Where are the bois?

    If someone feels that an opposition player scoring a goal against your team justifies you ripping up seats, you must have a low anger threshold..... Wouldn't like to see them when something important goes wrong Ultimately it will cost the club money

    I would be disappointed if he had knocked back a handshake, which he didn't... imrie offered his hand and Campbell accepted

    Just watched the highlights and Bigi's "challenge" leading up to the goal.... As someone else stated, he became a better player by not playing. Even playing offensively, uou can't be as lightweight as that.

    Depends on your definition of ability...if you're saying tge relegated teams had more ability, I will stick with staying up

    I probably would be in the happy clapper camp but it's hard to say anything positive about that today.... We didn't look like scoring, there was no spark. If we are struggling because of the debt, there should be some kind of statement from the club, then people may get behind the cause more. Don't agree it's the worst squad in the last 50 years, it's probably not even the worst in the last 20. Remember we've been relegated once and stayed down for about 4 years and escaped relegation on technicalities twice....

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    Great post......The "rosters" probably are very much in the minority but it sometimes seems they dominate on here.....Had We not got a point the other night they would be out in force just now ....Coyw

    Football is also about tracking runners, you can be silky and work hard, they aren't mutually exclusive

    Yep, because we are bored getting to 2 finals every year!

    He's got a point, I would have used a comma after Sir.

    2018’19 Game 9: St Johnstone (H) Saturday 20th October 2018

    If you don't remember a team as bad as this, you don't go too far back......this team actually has Some parallels wth the cup winning team , who the year after were awful and they were shouting for McLean's head , it's the Motherwell way..... .All that being said , today was very uninspiring.

    2018'19 Game 8: Livingston (H) Saturday 6th October 2018

    Agree with this, the football is a hard watch, but we stayed up a few years ago because of loans from Les etc, now it needs to be paid back. Dundee Utd went down because of this, so we are a step ahead of them.... I don't get this sizeable budget Robbo supposedly had. Hopefully the powers that be know the full details and don't listen to some fans knee jerk reactions. I don't think everything is all right.... I would like to see if any of the youth players could improve things... E. G haven't been impressed with Donnelky or Taylor Sinclair.... So could any youth players sit on the bench and come on and make an impact??
