    Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

    Main would just be swapping one reason for not scoring goals for another. Johnson would be as much of a waste as Scott, as it doesn't matter who's there if you don't have anyone that can deliver the ball to them in a semi-decent area.

    2019-20 League Cup

    Choosing the tactic of having everything go though a guy playing long diagonal Pirlo/Beckham passes, and deciding Charles Dunne is going to be that guy, is like deciding you want a room full of balloons for a party and choosing Edward Scissorhands to blow them up. What's even more stupid, is then not being able to understand why your party has no balloons.

    I still think we'll finish 4th.

    From what I gather, Shankland was asking for 3 grand a week and a 300k signing on fee. United gave him it.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    I actually agree with that part that I've put in bold. For me it was one of those days where the weather is great, the crowd is great, everyone is in a cracking mood and it feels like one of those days where the players are just going to revel in it, and then they don't. That always makes disappointment feel worse.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    As I said in the post you actually quoted, i'm not blaming it for our performance. In fact i'm not even relating it to specifically our game at all. It just makes watching football matches in general, a less appealing way to spend time when it's already too expensive across the board.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Absolutely agree with that. I was thinking today that it should be classed in the same category as a restricted view ticket. Have a plastic pitch if you like, but you can't charge full price for a ticket as you're restricting the product fans are paying to watch.

    I've never really waded in on the whole plastic pitch thing before, but it's getting beyond a joke. Not even blaming it for us not being great today, it just makes games shite to watch overall.

    Never in any doubt, although i'd always be nice to Gaz in the hope he takes me with him next time he's playing in a Vegas poker tourney.

    I was standing on the terrace that day in the middle of my first ever hangover, so it might not even have been Buff

    Shaun Teale didn't sign for us until the following year, but I seem to remember Brian Martin having a howler that day.

    Robinson yer time is up

    Imagine making a wee mistake when making a quick 2 min check of a website to try and answer someones question eh...outrageous stuff indeed. My profound apologies, it would appear cup games are included in his numbers. Makes a HUGE change to how he's done.

    Robinson yer time is up

    Win ratio of 43.24% from 111 games, bettered only in recent times by Craig Brown (45.14 from 35 games), and Stuart McCall (45.89% from 146 games). League games only, i'd imagine including cup games would take him above both of them as he's reached the final of 50% of the cup competitions he's presided over. He's also one of only 7 Motherwell managers in history whose sides scored more than they conceded over the course of their reign, and one of only 7 whose sides won more games than they lost over their reign. So aye, Robinson oot.

    We should be fully supporting anything the club can do to eliminate the weirdos that are grown adults wearing football tops at any time other than playing 5's or going to a game. Not allowing these people to buy one before their holiday has clearly been decided at board level, and should be applauded.

    The Well Society

    Incorrect The Well Society could still exist if there were no fans. It wouldnt be very successful, but that doesn't change what it is. People who think they part-own the club in any sort of issue-specific way, are ones for the watching

    2019-20 Rebuild

    Buzzing for this...surely reaping the rewards soon! #DT23

    What do we do when the senior players that we hope to renew, demand 3k a week as well because they know we have 3 guys being paid that? Just direct the calls to you aye? And if we find out one of those players isn't cutting it and we're stuck paying them 3k a week for 3 years to sit on the bench, will you post again and tell us what to do?

    That away top is absolutely beautiful!

  22. Also highlights another reason why Celtic assumed they could low-ball his wages and still have Liam and John Paul advise it was a good idea...
