  1. No - so it would be stupid having admitted to foul and abusive language, for the player or manager to even consider an appeal if that’s reason in ref’s report
  2. Business borrows money all the time to operate especially to fund the systems required for them to function/operate in direct competition with their competitors why should football be any different N.b a lot of our fans seem oblivious that our club do the same thing including accessing this govt loan ( or a similar scheme) which is on hugely preferential terms to some alternative s ps I consider many in football to have lost touch with their privileged position in society at this time, but borrowing money to sustain trading at the level they are practicing currently is just normal business
  3. that fixture was played exactly within the same calendar ‘round of fixtures’ it was originally scheduled. there are plenty of flaws this season including for Celtic, but a Monday night slot was not ‘found’ i had sympathy for the clubs impacted by covid, and still feel for public health reasons it was correct that our games were postponed/ cancelled as it wasn’t clear if the players that would have turned out were covid clear and safe to interact with our players and the officials having read both reports, it’s clear that both clubs didn’t treat the protocols with due respect or even common sense from the govt advice. the punishments handed out were harsh, but at the same time the panel choose to only punish events that the public health bodies felt led directly to the transmission of the virus. as such , the appeal could easily look again at all the breaches, St.Mirren in particular had an appalling list of failings, many of which were noted , but not punished. if this was the case and level of punishment was more balanced, Killie could receive a lesser punishment and St.Mirren probably deserve to be hammered as they truly did not implement the required controls almost mocking the seriousness of the situation.
  4. Surely we could petition the SFA not to register a player unless the development compensation is paid
  5. lets hope he is getting close, if he's getting further away ... i had kinda hoped to be there, like Mio's , but for the lad he deserves any small reward for his attitude and efforts
  6. Another point on board, scraping together enough for now although we’ll be looking at others to drop points to be safe
  7. This is Robinson biggest failing, sees something in players that even the players don’t seem to know about
  8. The SFA website? Only protocols ? So not in the SPFL rules and regulations then? PS, I’m being a bit facetious , everyone has their own conclusions’ most’ made without the ‘silly’ little details that could influence outcome and most all made with a hint of bias I thought they were harshly punished in a public health pandemic, same as hearts, thistle etc, doesn’t mean I want it changed.
  9. maybe we should just play football when we can, rack up or scrape points as our capability allows , and let the process run , its course plenty of scope for discussion without losing the rag, we were in a false league position on league match performance, as much as , what, if, but allows for , even head to head recent history with squads shows we benefitted I'm not sure about 'blatant' rule breaches ..... when nobody is giving clear indication, if they are steadfast incorporated 'rules' or guidance to continue operate as a league that clubs agreed to , even as much as common sense applies, if they are solid rules , broken with legitimate punishment given, then that punishment usually stands , ideal , if not , then play fixtures? alternatives if punishment handed out is deemed excessive? points deductions? or score draws? I'm also wary of demanding financial compensation for 'rule' breaches , when our own club has a history littered with call offs having failed to meet the requirements of the rules and regulations , no difference if it is covid 'rules' or playing surface rules , floodlight rules etc , IF it's a rule break leading to a fixture not being played to the original schedule, to then financially compensate the other club would be an awful precedent set
  10. Former player Chic McLelland dies http://www.motherwellnet.com/database/player-archive/mc-mac/chic-mclelland/
  11. thought he'd have went for some muscle , but he picks his squad
  12. a 1-2 Defeat , hardly crashing out the cup , when we concede with barely a whimper in response a lot of talk this week , when some basic football skills practice might have helped EDIT - change the thread title
  13. Hibs chief exec Leeann Dempster to stand down after 6 years at Easter Road.
  14. we have two* first team squad players isolating, would we be seeking a match this week? *potentially more if they did catch it

    Did Declan say in his club interview the other day his family are still living up in Dundee?

    Big Dec

    Was joking about dodging taking any of the penalties, in his club interview earlier Gonna need balls of steel if it comes to it

    John ‘Softie’ Philliben - Sweeper in the continental style, razor sharp accuracy with the long passes, super quick , had a gravity defying leap on him, and hit the most powerful penalties I’ve ever witnessed Was also manager ( with ‘Mio’ ) for 4 games , 2W 2L , lost the last game as Shaun Maloney is a diving cheating wee rat
  18. Nathan Thomas checks in at the herbal Local Indian CBD Foy Fountain of Superseal Hope arena
  19. Excellent result, tough venue, on a horrendous day for football
  20. Do the linked tweets show the video for non Twitter users?
  21. L Not quite sure if the investigation has concluded? Presumably it has, in each case, for the SPFL to call the clubs to hearings be interesting if anything is permitted to come out of this what the alleged breaches are, and if they are really controllable by the clubs ( as employers) the progress certainly isn’t helping get the backlog of fixtures cleared .
