  1. I've renewed mine already. I have no idea what I'll get out of it in terms of what the next year of football will look like but I had already put the money aside for renewal and I'm happy to put it in to help the club in a way.
  2. Sounds like it was going to happen in the summer anyway. And seeing as we don't have any football for the foreseeable future it makes sense to just get it over and done with now.
  3. First new signing I suppose. They'd already signed the first team up on professional terms.
  4. The done thing is to give it to Long for scoring a hat trick but Campbell was the best player on the park by some distance.
  5. Thought he strolled through it tbh. A lot of what he's done for most of the season.
  6. He's clearly not the most naturally talented player in the world, but more than compensates for that by being the hardest working player I've ever seen. Absolutely adore him.
  7. Maguire in midfield gives me the fear in this game. O'Hara maybe? Or maybe Sloth will put down his instagram account and play football instead.
  8. I made it along on Saturday. The minutes applause had me in tears. At least my old man would have got a laugh at the most typically Motherwell performance we've put in this season.
  9. I had a feeling it was you guys as a few of my mates were saying a couple of guys were there with Motherwell scarves. Never noticed you as my head is absolutely up my backside today. We all thought there would be a decent turnout but I wasn’t expecting 400+. A fitting send off for the big man. I’ll be there on Saturday. The big man wouldn’t let me have it any other way.
  10. I’m his son actually. The generosity of people has brought me to tears a couple of times this week. His funeral is on Wednesday 18th September at 10am at the Linn Crematorium. I’m making it my target to get to the Ross County game as the big man would be furious if I missed a game at Fir Park.
  11. I think this is very much the case. Once teams had rumbled him he became much less effective. Would it have been nice to keep a young player and try and coach him to be better? Absolutely yes. Do I think we've missed out on a massive amount of money in the future? Absolutely not.
  12. I think he definitely done a job and did help us get our wingers involved. However for scoring goals he was utterly fucking hopeless.
  13. Can only respect ruling out a walkback here. Continue.
  14. Respect to anyone who makes a go of it on the continent. Almost wonder why Gauld bothered coming back because I would absolutely be happy jobbing round lower league Portugal until I crashed into my 30s.
  15. Christ it wasn't half. The big man looked like he was pulling a caravan.
  16. I wouldn't say he's ready to be stuck in to start every week, but you'd find it tough to argue that he would have achieved any less than Conor fucking Sammon.
  17. Main is useful but more in terms of a second striker who grafts for the team. He needs a finisher up front with him as he's not a goalscorer. Bowman's absolutely terrible, Sammon's getting packed back to Gorgie at the earliest opportunity and I genuinely forgot Newell existed.
  18. Jacob Blyth signs for Barrow. I can only assume his agent is a master of illusion as he seems to have convinced someone he's a footballer.
  19. It's probably something that's inherent in football culture in this country where if someone doesn't run about enough they are deemed to be unfit/lazy/disinterested. There's something about players that have the ability but look like they're not breaking sweat that I love watching. Obviously different standard but Berbatov is one of my favourite players ever and he rarely looked like he gave a toss, but still played the game like it was the easiest thing in the world.
  20. Cards on the table here, lads. I love big Nadir. Get him signed.
  21. The difference is that the one guy was standing completely by himself in a half empty section of seats holding the smoke bomb above his head, while there were a large group of fans who were grouped together, presumably having dropped the smoke bombs at their feet. Not uneven policing/stewarding, just absolute fucking stupidity from the guy in our support.
  22. We were absolute jobby in the first half, and a bit better in the second. Still, I had many pre game beers, a barbecue and even got a good, old-fashioned t shirt tan.
