  1. As I say, if's and buts. I would love him to stay, but I think Motherwell as a business are looking at the long game and the huge difference the money would make to the club. As you say though plently more fish in the sea!
  2. This could be a disaster for Motherwell as if the deal falls through, then no other club could be willing to pay the £3 million. Might mean he stays with us for another season or the club have to accept a lower offer. All ifs and buts i suppose.
  3. Fair enough, but we don’t know what the other bids were like. Maybe they got 9 bids of around the million mark and then Celtic have came in with 3. As a club I just don’t think that is something we can turn down.
  4. Scott Brown from Hibs to Celtic was around the 4 million mark I think.
  5. Out of interest if you were in Burrows shoes in regards to the sale of our young talent what would you do?
  6. If any club comes in with £3 million or more then he is gone. No way we can risk keeping him and him getting injured or he loses form.
  7. Boy was brilliant, would have him back in a heart beat. Every time he got the ball you felt something was going to happen.
  8. Cadden is a superb player. Would be delighted if he stayed.
  9. Is Polworth really going to fit into the first team? I looked at him as a squad player at the very most.
  10. Based on how Cadden has been performing in his last few games I would LOVE to keep him. Has looked superb. Perfect scenario would be that next season we line up as follows: GK - Gillespie DL - Tait CB - Dunne CB - Gallagher / Maguire / Mbulu DR - Grimshaw MC - Turnbull MC - Campbell MC - Gorrin AML - Cadden AMR - Semple CF - Scott But in reality it will probably be: GK - Gillespie DL - Tait CB - Dunne CB - Gallagher / Maguire / Mbulu DR - Grimshaw MC - Fane MC - Campbell MC - Gorrin AML - Tanner AMR - Semple CF - Scott I think this summer we will be waving goodbye to the following: Turnbull, Cadden, Frear, Aldred, Sammon, Hartley, Johnson, McHugh, Newell and Main. Maybe even Campbell if the right offer comes in.
  11. If the figure of 11k a week is true then I am not going to hold anything against Hastie making the move as I would do the exact same if I was in his position.
  12. This is why I am not a football scout!!
  13. Hastie was excellent again yesterday. The boy is going to be a top player. If he stays then great, if not then thats just football. Few guys were saying that Crystal Palace are very interested in signing him, so I think the Rangers move might not be so clear cut.
  14. If he does sign for Rangers there is no way the manager will not play him for the rest of the season. That is just daft!
  15. Top 6 for me is way off. Main this is to keep playing the kids as we are now safe. If we get into the top 6 then it’s an amazing result, but looking at the fixtures I just can’t see that happening.
  16. That is not a football pitch. Ball hardly moved on it. Killie need to get that ripped up pronto.
  17. Turnbell stole the show for me yesterday. Total calmness on the pitch. The Scottish Pogba! Anyway we will get upwards of 3 million for him next season.
  18. McHugh is a good utility player and useful to have if you have injuries. Would love Cadden to stay. ATS is on loan and doubt will be back Frear is worth keeping as backup. Aldred is a must buy. Main I’m not sure about, but would be tricky to get a similar player of his level for free. Gorrin is worth another season
  19. We don’t need anymore players. More than enough cover in all positions. Also our youth players are proving they are ready for the step up. Much rather they played then some of the dirge we have signed from down south.
  20. McHugh needs to be played in defence. He is has played far better in that position this season. Id have him in the back 3 with Tait and Dunne further up supporting Frear and the new boy Ariybi. I’d stick Scott up front as it looks like all our young players are far better than the shite we have been hauling up the motorway.
  21. Shit signings in the summer. players constantly changing position. tactically all over the place. But for me it’s the standard of football at home that is the nail in the coffin. It’s is fucking dreadful and possibly the worst I have seen at Fir Park for years.
