    Tom Hateley back as set-piece coach?

    Well... EDIT: Can we please fine Charles Dunne £10 every time he hits a ball further than twenty yards? We'll get more money than for selling Turnbull.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I'm looking to place an online order (still not decided whether to go for home or away). Any advice on sizing compared to previous Macron shirts?
  6. I know the club have to do the right thing by the player (our whole selling point is that we are a selling club) as well as the club's finances but it really is now a time to stand up for ourselves (that's not an insinuation that we haven't done so already). It's impossible to know what the truth is and what the circumstances are. Irrespective, I desperately want the club to now pull out of the deal and refuse to sell to Celtic. We need the money, granted. We don't need their money, though.
  7. Like everyone else, I was gutted when I read the news that Celtic had a bid accepted. I'm proud of our wee club (not offensive, realistic) producing a player of Turnbull's standard. If he's already outgrown Motherwell and needs to take the next step to progress his career, he goes with my best wishes. I had hoped that the next step would be an English club, or one further abroad, that would give him game time and help him become a firm fixture in the national team. The Old Firm disgust me. I won't go into the litany of reasons why because they are self-evident. I see a lot of criticism of the club for doing business with 'them'. The fact (something that is sparing in this thread) is that we are in debt and this fee will clear that debt. Once we're debt free, and only then, can we then debate the merits of keeping our best players, when to sell, etc. The decision from the club isn't questionable. What I've barely seen acknowledged yet is someone else's decision...the player himself. If Turnbull honestly thinks signing for Celtic is the right move for him then he is badly misguided. That's not the fault of Burrows or anyone else at the club. No one, I'm sure, is forcing Turnbull to sign for Celtic. He's a grown man and has a choice to make. For his career's sake, I hope he doesn't think Neil Lennon and being knocked out of the Europa League group stages is the answer. If he does, that's on him.

    Anyone who still gives Charlie Mulgrew a cap is beyond redemption.
  9. Maybe McCulloch and McFadden know that, to keep a job in the media in Scotland, you need to tow the party line: either praise the Old Firm when they win or look to find a distraction/excuse/justification when they lose.
  10. Anything happening? BBC Sportscene don't seem interested in even mentioning there's a game playing.

    Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

    Really? After the culmination of a wonderful cup run and the dejection of failing to win the trophy, the adventure of fans from all over the globe to be there, that's what you choose to open with? Anyway, the first half was so incredibly disappointing. We gave them the freedom to run through us with ease. There was nothing to hold on to, nothing that gave you that hope or excitement that the fans deserved today. The second half, even if the game was effectively over, was far better. Where was that performance in the first half? Finally, stating the obvious, but the Celtic support really are cretins. I saw one Motherwell fan led off in handcuffs before the game started. Yet, nothing will be said or done about that Palestine 'display' or the IRA songs. Full credit to the Motherwell fans today. Some might complain but I thought they did the team proud. I'm so flat after that result but I'm still so glad that I was there to see it.

    Please excuse the probably stupid question: is there a way of seeing which seats/sections have been sold already?
  13. Now that it's been highlighted/suggested that the same ref has sent off a suspiciously disproportionate number of Motherwell players, I'll be very surprised if the SFA choose to validate that claim further by rescinding another of his red cards. As for the media, I was listening to Radio Scotland yesterday and the "journalist" reporting on the incident (not a biased Pat Bonner pundit that you might at least forgive) somehow managed to not make mention of Scott Brown whatsoever. It was as though Kipre assaulted thin air. The only mention he made of Celtic in his whole piece was to bring up the fact that Motherwell didn't appeal Kipre's previous red card in the Cup Final loss to Celtic which was clear proof that Motherwell agreed with the decision. I know I shouldn't be surprised but... People talk about Brendan Rodgers influencing the media. He doesn't need to. Our media will happily just make it up for him.

    Bowman's reaction of total disbelief at what he's just seen. Brilliant!
