    Season Tickets

    I’ve bought my first season ticket in 15 years and got one for the weans too. Stuck them on the credit card, so if COVID kills me before the football’s back, my life insurance will cover it and the club still get the money.
  2. It’s effectively a free hit at them. No one expects us to come away with anything from Parkhead. They have been in great form, not conceding a domestic goal in 2019. However, they have got a hard game on Thursday but hopefully they can get the 2-0 victory they need and take the game to extra time and penalties. Hopefully after that, the last thing they will want is Arriybi and Hattie running at them. I’m quietly confident. So much so that I’m swithering about whether to go to the game. It sounds mental but the thought of watching #youngmotherwell is exciting enough, irrespective of the result. Heart says 2-1 Well. Head says 2-1 them.

    Pre Season?

    Playing the Cup finalist back to back? So if we beat Hibs, can we claim to be unofficial Scottish Cup winners 2016 a la Scotland '67...
  4. Just watched the full Q&A - still clear as mud tbh.
  5. This. I do see where you are coming from. However, the rules are set down at the start of the season and every team plays knowing that outwith the top automatic promotion places (1st & 2nd down south, 1st in Scotland), you have to play a playoff round. In England, it gives mid table teams something to play for rather than rendering 5 or 10 games meaningless. Less of an issue up here due to smaller leagues. And if you don't like play offs, you'd have a field day with the Belgian or Argentine leagues and their crazy half seasons.
  6. That was the point I was trying to make. Personally, I'd be in favour of 2 down and 2nd to 5th in the First division playoff for the 2nd playoff place. Just not this season of course.
  7. I think the issue from the Premier to the First is the amount of games that the team that finishes 3rd or 4th has to play in order to have a crack at 11th. Obviously, that was the way that the SPL teams wanted but I think 11th vs 4th/3rd vs 2nd is fairer.
  8. Pity he drinks like George Best as well (allegedly?!?)
  9. Announced on the official site that we've signed Nicky Law's brother Josh on a one year deal. http://www.motherwellfc.co.uk/2014/05/21/motherwell-sign-josh-law/ Signed from Alfreton Town in the Conference. Must admit I know nothing about him but if he comes on half as much as his brother...
  10. But Dong-caster is acting on behalf of the clubs. So ultimate responsibility falls upon the clubs themselves. But it again follows my argument that there is no competition for the rights to the SPFL, therefore it's a race to the bottom and the lowest price Sky can get away with. As for Sky not showing the Welsh game, they don't. But they show matches from Norn Iron.
  11. I don't buy that TV is only interested in the OF and without it there will be no TV deal. Certainly tonight there's a Championship playoff on BBC Alba that plenty on my twitter feed are watching instead on the EL final. The issue is there is no competition for the TV rights so we have to take what we get or we get hee-haw.
  12. Imagine group stages of the EL or winning the Scottish would be only things to top the achievements of the current era.
