    2018/19 Game 30: Hibs (A) March 16th 3pm kick off

    Thats what makes it so interesting as we are all playing teams in the mix. With the fixtures set up as they are anything could happen. I agree we need to at least not lose to Hibs though. 5 points would probably be too much to overcome. A win puts it in our own hands though.

    Killie at home is no pushover either.....

    Voted Tait and Turnbull. However, Gillespie or Aldred are equally good shouts.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Great news re Grimmy. He may not be as technically gifted as some would like, but his attitude is spot on and you never get less than everything he has got. Ive really enjoyed his marauding runs up the right of late. Great energy and legs to have in the team.

    Defo want top 6. More money for higher league position. More money for another Celtic game More money from higher away supports in other fixtures. In our current form and with Celtic at home we should fear no one and it would be pretty much a free shot at all the other teams. Perfect scenario to try out a few things with no pressure....

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Is there not a formula involved for calculating the compensation based on how many years the player has been developed by the club and how many first team appearances they have had etc? I think we would be due significantly mire than £50k. Did we not get somewhere in the region of £800k from Leeds for Lee Erwin? I seem to recall being surprised that it was more than we got for Murphy. We should definitely be playing him whilst he is contracted to us. If the other club wants him rested then there should be a suplementary payment involved.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Given that very few on here have any real idea whats going on with Hastie and his contact negotiations, there's some amount of gnashing of teeth on here. The boy is clearly talented and we probably should have had him tied up on a longer deal earlier, but there is a financial risk attached to every deal. He may yet do what Turnbull, Scott and Maguire have done. Having all his mates sign on for another 2 years certainly cant do any harm. However, he is perfectly entitled to listen to all offers and even use them as leverage to get a better deal out of the club. I will be disappointed if he chooses to leave and gutted if he chooses the dead club but those booing him yesterday (not hundreds but a fair few) are an absolute mile oot! The fact that Crystal Palace are sniffing around should hopefully mean that doesnt happen if he is being correctly advised.

    Hamilton Accies Man of the Match

    Hard to choose today. Tait Aldred and Grimshaw were all great at the back. Gorrin and Campbell both excellent in midfield. Ariybi and Hastie both really good in first half but didnt enjoy same amount of time on ball 2nd half. Mom for me though is Turnbull. Complete performance. So calm and composed on the ball, 2 goals, might have had a third. Just first class.

    We had the same nonsense with Turnbull. Hopefully we get the same result. Id love to see a first team with Maguire Campbell Cadden Turnbull Hastie and Scott in it.

    2018/19 Game 29: Hamilton (H) March 9th 3pm kick-off

    Kind of overshadowed by the emergence of Hastie who is doing what we all hope McCormack might. Imagine them BOTH in the team and firing on all cylinders!

    2018'19 Game 28: Kilmarnock (A) March 2nd 3pm kick-off

    Decent performance first half. Killie started strongly and created a couple of chances but we settled it down after that and looked the better team for the remainder. Shame the match was abandoned as I fancied our chances second half but the ref had no choice. We couldnt see a thing from our end. Hopefully we can get a weekend game on the next again Scottish Cup dates.
  12. Gonna be in New Orleans on Sunday. 1. Any idea what time kick off is there? 2. Any US channels likely to be showing the game if I can find a bar thats open? Cheers in advance!

    Turnbull defintely looks like the real deal. He has so much composure on the ball for someone his age. He rarely looks flustered. The fact that he is already being mentioned alongside the likes of Lambert and McAllister is about as big a compliment as you can get. I think another 18 months in our first team and he will be in line for a big money move. Be brilliant to see him make it on the big stage and starting for Scotland.

    Who Stays And Who Goes?

    It is absolutely no coincidence that Elliot Frear is starting to contribute to the team again when he is being allowed to play his natural position. To suggest he is not good enough for this league or that Motherwell can do better, given assists he has contributed in the last 5 games is batshit crazy. I agree Ariyibi looks a classier player and has been great to watch since he arrived. However, you cant ignore the fact that he drifts in and out of games, cant yet last 90 minutes and most importantly isnt our player. Even if Forest were to let him go, he would have to take a massive cut in wages to sign for us. I would agree Grimshaw and McHugh should no longer be being considered as first team picks, but they are both very valuable squad players at our level as can be seen from their recent contributions. To suggest we can get better to sit on our bench is fanciful. The team is moving in the right direction. Those that need moved on will be. But some of the players being questioned still have much to offer.
