    Carson back please. Seedorf just terminate his contract now.

    Parking at Civic

    To be honest I have parked for years at the high flats/houses just as you come off the roundabout and go onto Shields Road and never struggled to get a space apart from on a very rare occasion when its a bigger game. Only a few minutes walking difference.

    Away fans in the POD

    I can't get my head around this as never in a month of Sundays would I go out my way to buy tickets for anyone who supports those two regardless of whether they were friends or family. I assume most people would be the same. I said this to someone earlier - Motherwell FC is obviously fan owned now through the Well Society. The club pay the stewarding company - Securior or Group 4 or whoever has the contract now for their matchday services I imagine a fairly handsome some on an annual basis. If these jobsworths (which alot of them are - not a braincell between some of them) aren't doing their jobs and are reported to the club - the club have to take action as the company are not fulfilling their contractual obligations. Would you pay a window cleaner who turns up at your house and just looks at the glass without doing anything? I suspect not. The Well Society need to be straight with the club board on this and instruct the management to take action - and if the stewarding company don't buck up their ideas they need to lose the contract. I would suggest the club actually need to monitor more closely each stand on games.

    2019/2020 Game 2: Celtic (H) August 10th 12pm Kick off

    Can't blame Gillespie this time. That was criminal defending.

    Steven Robinson in the Record

    Interesting article in the Daily Record on how young players need to be managed and his take on the Hastie and Turbull scenarios. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/handling-david-turnbulls-celtic-transfer-18788893.amp?__twitter_impression=true&fbclid=IwAR0vYakZqzO2QypETZQpeiFI0gKhxvDmaWzaW4FEHxTbkok8OJaeQTcKcMA I do have to dispute his comments on Sevco however - they are hardly a "world class club" - don't even scratch the surface!

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    Macron efforts have been okay in the past other than the daft collar design. I do wonder about getting a more trendy manufacturer though - Aberdeen manage it. I wonder if it boosts sales at all.

    Don't the club already own the houses on Fir Park Street that were objecting to full construction back in the day?

    Youth Development is alive and WELL

    How does that set up work? Is the club involved in the management of it?

    Aren't you just a ray of sunshine. I see no reason why this run won't continue.

    The club have priced this before and the value for money it offers is pretty s#ite going given that the area you would install standing in the punters stand anyway. Main stand investment is needed to secure the future of the club - facilities such as modern changing rooms, medical facilities, corporate suites and the full length of the pitch would make Fir Park every bit as enclosed as Tynecastle. Upgraded facilities could go a distance in encouraging more players in the door, local companies to use the facilities instead of the rotten mob and who knows, maybe new supporters. Obviously any new main stand would need a heated lazy river with an inclusive bar service as that is going to be bog standard moving forward in Scottish Stadia excellence.

    A new main stand is something that's going to need done sooner or later. If it was designed to mirror something similar to the Davie Cooper then Fir Park has the potential to be a decent, very enclosed ground as the South and Cooper stands are fine as is the park plus we don't want to end up in a soulless wee shoebox like St Mirren and Airdrie.
  12. I agree. Unless it's the bigot brothers. They can GTF.
  13. Nice way to end the season and reasonably entertaining. The second half however I have to say wasn't impressive. Thought the two Livingston goals could have been avoided. A few people saying Livi were the better team...which is a fair comment for the second half but I thought we blew them away in the first half - we weren't great but capitalised on the opportunities (something we could have done more of) but I don't think Livingston could be described as anything but mediocre stock. On the other hand it was though great to see 'Well fans on four sides of FP again. I wish we could replicate that more regularly. I for one am quite happy for the club to dish out free tickets for youngsters. We have 8 thousand empty seats most weeks and that's not making us any cash anyway so let's get erses on them more regular hopefully it will help the wee season on season growth we have had with attendances recently. It is disappointing out of the 4k tickets given out, about two thirds didn't seem to bother but it's a good start.

    2018'19 Game 1: Hibernian (A) Sunday 5th August

    Hibs are absolutely shite defensively, I think their European score lines against dross and record of conceding last season proves that. Elsewhere however this is a good hibs side but one who I feel do inherit the 'Bottle Merchant' mentality to a degree which has plagued Hibs for years. If we can get ourselves forward and not pull the trigger too early (which we are good at) I don't see why we aren't capable of producing decent chances. If we can capitalise on that, and probably on thehangover from their two European games our injury worries may not have as big an impact as some here are worrying about.
