  1. I love beating that lot more than anyone else. I remember that game, too, and having bottles of p**h flung at me and my mates as we made our way to Tynecastle in December for the first leg of the semi-final. Ironically, about 20 years later I was offered a seat on the bus run by the Borders branch of their supporters' club for matches at Fir Park when I lived down there......I graciously refused the offer.
  2. If Daily Record's stats are correct, there will be a few bookings on Saturday. David Munro (the ref for the match) has officiated in 31 games, issuing 127 yellow and five red cards.
  3. I was making a general point about what, judging by his actions so far, seems to be Alexander's preferred approach. I think my second posting - not this one - makes that clear.
  4. I don't expect many of the young boys to make it as it's the nature of competitive sport. Motherwell have a good record but so far, the current brains trust on the bench have, Cornelius apart, focused on bringing folk in rather than bringing folk through.
  5. If Alexander and Lucketti ever give any of them a chance.

    I'll renew mine, but that doesn't mean it's a vote of confidence in the bullshi55er who is manager, and, if rumblings I've heard from folk far closer to the inner workings of the club than I'll ever be, has alienated a fair few players by his arrogance. Previous managers haven't been given the leeway, by some on this board, that he has when results and style of football have been poor. I don't expect players or managers to have the same commitment as fans have to the club as it's a job for them. However, I do expect honest and hard graft, not feeble excuses about luck when we lose and no mention of that when luck means we win games we shouldn't. If Alexander bemoans the luck and fine margins since Boxing Day, he should also take account of the luck and fine margins that got us victories in first half of season.
  7. One of the best goalies we've had and we've had more than our fair share. Hope he gets through it.
  8. If it's any consolation, I'll be up at 06h00 to get my son's stuff organised so he can play , and I can watch his match in Linlithgow and we both get back to FP for the match.
  9. dennyc said: " I went to my first Motherwell game in the mid 60's and have suffered some dreadful teams in that time. But this current situation is as poor as I can recall....even thinking back to the Malpas, Kampman and Hynd eras. Watching what is currently on offer is simply not enjoyable and as a ST Holder I am even struggling to convince myself to attend home games. Away games are simply no longer worth the effort or pain." I must be of a similar vintage as my first game was in 1963, a draw against the now defunct Third Lanark. Having witnessed the three eras you describe, I fear that Alexander's anti-football approach will increase the disillusionment amongst the fans and will make it harder to attract players with any capacity for creativity. I acknowledge how tight the SPL table is in the middle, but there's not a lot of evidence that we're going close the fine gaps that Alexander claims are the reason for our poor run. I think I'll get a renewed ST as a gift from my kids, but it's going to be hard watching more of what's on offer and hearing the same post-match press conference. I'm not one for changing managers or judging new signings before they have a decent run of games, but surely even Grezza must see that he's not made best use of the resources at his disposal.
  10. And look at what Watt was on compared to Kelly.
  11. The socks are different. This link takes you to a black and white photo of the team. https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.pinimg.com%2F736x%2F6e%2F18%2F9f%2F6e189f8132192f17d42d23d4437a67d7.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinterest.co.uk%2Fpin%2F132363676534952688%2F&tbnid=Stzdtnu7yNclBM&vet=12ahUKEwjDoai9q9f2AhUGxhoKHUTuA0UQMygAegQIARA9..i&docid=1Afjodx4ZfGPLM&w=735&h=719&q=1965 summer cup final&ved=2ahUKEwjDoai9q9f2AhUGxhoKHUTuA0UQMygAegQIARA9

    I heard the same about Slattery and O'Donnell. Don't know if it's true.
  13. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Sorry! I'll bet exiting pics are black and white. The strip mto which I refer is, basically the reverse of current home kit; that is, amber hoop on claret top.
  14. Like the one worn in the Summer Cup Final against Dundee United in 1965?
