  1. Here's the old firm league defeats since Rangers got back into the top level in 2016-17. 6 - Kilmarnock 5 - Heart of Midlothian 4 - Aberdeen 3 - Hibernian 2 - Dundee 2 - Livingston 1 - Hamilton 1 - St Johnstone 1 - Inverness 0 - Motherwell 0 - Ross County 0 - St. Mirren 0 - Partick Thistle With the exception of Kilmarnock, who Steve Clarke did an amazing job with getting rid of the wee club mentality, I think a trend is pretty clear.
  2. Even when good, wee teams tend to have a wee team mentality. At the opposite end of the scale even when bad, bigger teams tend to have a bigger team mentality. Teams like Hearts and Aberdeen have done well against Rangers because they approach the game with a different mindset. It goes beyond form, line ups, tactics.
  3. Aberdeen now 3 wins in their last 10. Not great form and the fans aren't happy with the style of play. They are under a wee bit of pressure and have been dire since the break. Livingston should not be underestimated. For me they have one of the best midfield rosters in the league, are coming off 5 home wins on the trot and have only lost at home to Rangers and Aberdeen. Away to Livingston has been one of the tougher fixtures for the past couple of seasons.
  4. He's obviously been to the Ronaldo School of Winning Free Kicks.
  5. Gallagher. Had a wee slip near the end but otherwise breezed through the match.
  6. Bit of a frustrating match today. Felt we completely dominated the first half but it was summed up in James Scott, destroyed the Hibs full back but the final touch wasn't quite there. That was sort of echoed across the team - good performances but lacking end product. Second half didn't think we were at the same level, we still dominated but we gave Hibs more opportunities to counter attack which were the only occasions they really looked dangerous. MacIver did well enough but when Manzinga came on he provided the physicality that perhaps MacIver lacked. Was only denied by a great save. Our performances at set pieces was poor considering Hibs aren't exactly a big team. Overall the performance was decent enough but just lacking that edge up front.
  7. Bare in mind these are only league match appearances between 2010 - 2019 so some players would have more appearances, Mark Reynolds for instance had a lot more, but certainly for the current squad that's correct. In fact 11 of our current squad have made their Motherwell debuts this season - if you include Casper Sloth who hasn't yet made a league appearance and isn't on the list.
  8. I was away all day yesterday and I don't usually comment on matches I don't attend but just wanted to say what an excellent result last night was. Also a wee fact - we've worn our away strip 5 times this season and won 4 and drawn 1. Must imbue the greatest super powers since our 'Dortmund' strip I reckon.
  9. Today - 0 seconds. Pulled off the individual season spreadsheets that I've been keeping for 15 years.
  10. I said as much. There are at 10+ midfielders who were much worse (Gomis, Clay, etc) but they tended to be central midfielders and given the limited choice of left wingers that's who I went for.

  12. Didn't play many games and was as far back in the decade as you could get. That and some ignominious competition probably got him off the hook.
  13. He played once from the start and once from the bench. We lost both matches to Ross County and Dundee.
  14. Wasn't on much over the holidays so must have missed this. My Motherwell XI 2010 - 2020 Gk - Darren RANDOLPH (also my all time pick) Rb - Tom HATELEY (strange that we've been fairly weak at right back all through the decades, not a great selection but edged it over Tait) Cb - Stephen CRAIGAN (better than often given credit for) Cb - Shaun HUTCHINSON Lb - Steven HAMMELL Rw - Chris HUMPHREY (again bit weak down the right, Ainsworth was just too inconsistent and declined over his period at the club, while Humphery left a much better player than when he joined so he gets the nod) Cm - Keith LASLEY Cm - David TURNBULL (not even one full season but just too good to leave out. Actually a lot of players in this area were highly inconsistent with good seasons and very poor seasons - McFadden, Pearson, Ojamaa etc. Nicky Law probably the hardest done by not to make it.) Lw - Jamie MURPHY (actually preferred him playing through the middle but still good enough to take the left midfield spot) Cf - John SUTTON (Another, like Craigan, who I feel doesn't get the credit he deserves, excellent goal record over multiple seasons) Cf - Louis MOULT (our best striker since Tommy Coyne. McDonald and Higson deserve mentions) And my nightmare XI Gk - Gunnar Nielsen RB - Fraser Kerr, CB - Louis Lang, CB - Zak Jules, LB - Joe Chalmers RW - Deimantas Petravicius, MC (You could easily have about 10 absolutely deserving duds in here but I'll go with...) Jake Taylor, MC - Paul Lawson, LW - Elliot Frear (although not good enough overall, probably doesn't deserve to play along side most of the rest of this team). Cf - Alex Fisher, Cf - Jacob Blyth (only had 1 league start but I can't not put him in!)
  15. I was there two weeks ago. Took the opportunity during the winter break to visit some grounds I'd not been to before. Maybe not the most exciting draw in the world but we have a pretty good record there recently and should be a decent match.
