    2019'20 Game 9: Aberdeen (H)

    We have a decent record against them in recent games, but they are usually quite tight affairs. Part of me thinks that if we keep our level of performance as high as the past few matches we should win this one. The other part of me thinks that there's no way Aberdeen can play as poorly again as they did against Hibs.

    And also his old Liverpool team mate that he brought to the club - Bobby Graham. Graham / Pettigrew is easily the best striking partnership I've had the pleasure to watch at Fir Park.

    He probably will as, sooner or later, I expect the last cup winning team to be voted in as a bloc.

    Motherwell FC Hall of Fame

    I'd vote for Joe, but these things are all age dependent. Ian St. John had moved to Liverpool before I started going to games, but he is another good shout. And about half the fans who are younger than me will be thinking Tommy Coyne or Faddy, no doubt.

    Declan for Scotland

    I swear FIFA would allow paid transfers between countries if they could get away with it.

    Declan for Scotland

    Clarke is such a big fan of Gallagher he's trying to get an English centre half to change nationality and play for Scotland.

    Then on Sunday, Robinson will meet with the Aberdeen board as a courtesy.

    2019'20 Game 9: Aberdeen (H)

    The best thing about this game will be the enforced lack of patter about "Main coming back to haunt us".

    Which club will take our Manager ?

    Even the good ones end up being sacked for failing later - McCall for example. That's not a Motherwell thing, more of a football thing where it's difficult to sustain any level of success over a number of seasons.

    The DUP blocked the deal.

    Reserves/Under 20's/Youths

    Most likely. He took a pretty heavy knock in the St Mirren game that led to his substitution, so either still injured or not being risked.

    New Year Player Sale

    It's rare we sell any player in January, never mind the good ones.

    Which club will take our Manager ?

    Of all the issues that have plagued that club during their consecutive relegation years, I think Jack Ross is fairly low on the list.

    New Year Player Sale

    I don't disagree with that, but would add it depends on why they're not featuring right now. Gorrin was a good counter example that made an excellent (if short) contribution once he overcame his injury and fitness problems.

    New Year Player Sale

    I'm the opposite. I expect Turnbull will be first out the door (unless there are any players Robinson has decided won't make the grade and decides to shift). And if Turnbull does go, then there is no need to sell anyone else.

    I'm not so sure Dempster has much longer left at Hibs since the new owner took over. With relatively poor results on the field I suspect there might be a "new broom" approach by the end of the season. Especially as one the reasons Dempster joined was to recreate the fan ownership model in some form - a model that has bitten the dust under the new regime.

    To be fair, it was mostly McGhee that was touting McGhee for Celtic, Hearts and Scotland. Usually during Motherwell press conferences.

    That'll be Jack Ross sorted then.

    Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

    The Scottish Sports Media is largely run for the benefit of the OF readership, so no surprises here.

    Declan for Scotland

    It's rare for late call-ups to get a game unless there really is an injury crisis. In a double header, if things are going well in the second game, they might get some minutes at the tail end, but the state we are in these days we're usually fighting for a result even at that stage.

    Only if he's fit enough to contribute. Don't want another Ross McCormack debacle.

    2019'20 Game 8: St Mirren (H)

    I think he was playing it cool with his "of course I scored from there - that's what I do" reaction.

    Declan for Scotland

    Much the same here. Last couple of times I saw us play Livi, they were very much following the "70 yard punts up the park every time we get the ball" tactics, so Gallagher really didn't have a chance to play his football. Although he was dangerous at set pieces. So I was a bit surprised to see what a good footballer he was. He's in the same mould (although not quite as good as) Alan Hansen. A solid defender who is good with the ball at his feet and rarely wastes a pass. I'm imagine if it wasn't for his legal issues, his career might have taken a different trajectory and ended up playing at a higher level than us.

    2019'20 Game 8: St Mirren (H)

    We were a bit shot-shy today, although we have scored more goals than any Premiership team outside the OF so can't complain too much. The fact that there is still room for improvement can only be a good thing. (I also read earlier today that we have had twice as many shots at goal than Aberdeen have managed so far this season).

    Take the money for Turnbull and let Polworth light a big cigar with some £20 notes as he bosses the midfield.
