    2019-20 Rebuild

    Noticed few posters saying they expect cadden to leave.... anything behind this or just a feeling? I'm thinking the opposite - maybe turnbull has been a distraction from it, but theres been little to no media attention around clubs interested in him which makes me think the development fee is a turn off. So for him it would make sense to sign for another year....

    Yep, this patter is pissing me off as well. Not enough through the gates regularly enough is the reason we have to sell to be sustainable in the first place - the irony. I'm sad to see turnbull leave but realistically we were never going to reject 3M plus. I'm more surprised celtic played ball tbh.

    Gutted. And to them

    Celtic can do one. Based on how they went about things with John McGinn last summer, I'd tell them to [email protected]@k off now and not to bother coming back. Cant be dealing with a pre-season of that.

    Away fans in the POD

    10-12 seconds in. F*cking disgusting and also extremely cowardly. Hope it never hit anyone.

    This. Plus, it's not very often you get to see the best young, arguably best outright(?), midfielder in the country playing at Motherwell... and he actually wants to be here. Let's enjoy it while it lasts! I think I might have posted a few weeks back with a minimum valuation i felt we'd consider, but I take it back now, hes improving at a rate of knots and I certainly wouldn't be hitting the cash out button now unless it blows our record fee out the water. I am speaking as a fan of course though.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I'm the opposite - never been a fan of the white away tops. Always preferred the claret/ reverse home style ones. But that one is smart! Like the home one too. Here's hoping.
  8. Strangely looking forward to this one. Nothing to play for gives us the chance to see a few youngsters on the fringes. Also, I see we're doing the free kids tickets in the south stand again and I heard the bottom tier is sold out already, so we could be looking at a decent crowd for essentially a friendly. Suspect we'll see Livingstone, possibly Ferguson and semple start. Hoping for a bit of an enjoyment factor - 2-2 draw.

    Ditto. £2M plus significant add ons, should be the bare minimum.

    I believe he can then leave the club at the end of his contract, become a free agent and is free to sign on elsewhere. In that scenario I don't think we're due anything. Emphasis on the word "think". Is a risk for the player though - I'm sure it happened at partick thistle a few years back and the player (bannigan maybe?) couldn't find another club after all, so went back to thistle with his tail between his legs.

    Ah that would make sense if thats the case. The way it's written is a bit misleading. I imagine if he's signed it would have been announced.

    Article mentions that cadden has signed a new deal? Did I miss that???
  13. Sit in the POD and personally felt a bit sick when i realised tavernier had stopped due to a missile being thrown. Don't want our club tarnished with that shite whatsoever. That said, Walsh failing to pull him up for stealing yards was ridiculous, it couldn't have been more blatant. On the football side, im surprised Robinson highlights Turnbull's part in the second goal. For me he was in no position to receive the ball, and Dunne should have played it up the line. He was facing our goal and didn't have much choice of what to do. I wouldn't have been pointing the finger at him for that. I much prefer that we are trying to play from the back, but as robbo mentioned post match you need to pick your moments. Hopefully it's a harsh lesson for the team. We still have all the teams around us to play so it shouldnt affect our final positioning anyway. On the plus side Scott looked lively when he came on, hope to see him get a bit of game time in the bottom 6.

    St Johnstone Man of the Match

    The double substitution changed the game so firstly credit due to the manager there - Cadden looked lively and frear should have had a second, but it could have been a different, and extremely ugly, second half had st johnstone scored the penalty..... Mark Gillespie!
  15. Belter . Sadly I don't think cadden will be though. Robust, great engine, proven at our level and international recognition. There will be some suitors down south unfortunately for us. Just hope we get decent compensation.
