  1. the downside of that is they will have played a competitive game and could be sharper, where as we will not have played for a few weeks and could be rusty but let’s hope the cup game in January will serve as a warning to the players.

    Denyc, while I see some merit in your idea of offering longer contracts to a couple of young players that you think will make the first team, doing so would create an “elite” within the youth squad which could be counter productive to squad unity as the others would feel undervalued and if one of them develops into something special you then run the risk of him leaving at the first opportunity. Although not perfect I believe that the present system works to an extent and changing it would create greater problems.

    Heard today from a friend with contacts within Rangers, that Hastie has had a medical at Ibrox but more interesting was the guys comments that not everyone at Rangers rates him and the guy referred to him as Gareth Hastie because of his comments re Gareth Bale. His words were “he better live up to that or he will get slaughtered”

    Personally I think he will come good and within a year will be a mainstay in our defence but I’m not yet convinced he will go on to greater things - although I do have high hopes for the guy.

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

    I think they still have the edge if we win, Their last three games are Livi (away), Killie (home) and Hearts (away) With ours being StJ (home), Aberdeen (away) and Rangers (home). So even with a win on Saturday to move into 6th place, I think we will need a fair slice of good fortune to stay in 6th.

    Km totally agree, from what I could see everyone was standing applauding when he left the park.

    Sun says Rangers are close to signing Hastie (rumour) and we get 3 pages of opinions. Just read in the Record that Aldred wants to talk about staying - with direct quotes from him - and nothing said. I really hope that we can do a deal with him.

    Pity if he’s off - paper only say Rangers are close to signing him - but I think he will get s game with Rangers. Kent loan deal ends so he should replace him. As for not playing for us again that’s stupid. His goals could be the difference between 1 or 2 league places.
  11. How long does it take to get from the park to the station at Kilmarnock?

    retro kits

    Could it be like that because the Ian Skelly emblem - as seen below - was over two lines
  13. So he apparently had a bad game, no need to drop him for 1 bad game, ffs - next game he could be MotM.
  14. Sweet, sweet victory all the better for that howler from the keeper. Picking the Motm will be hard.

    Who Stays And Who Goes?

    Weeyin I totally agree that the managers comments were valid but I’m sure I’ve read on here them being used to unfairly knock Livingston - unless I’ve misread some posts.

    Who Stays And Who Goes?

    Adam Livingston unfortunately was thrown in unprepared at the deep end and had a poor game against Celtic. The managers comment afterward about fitness has been misused to unfairly pillar the guy since. Given time and a more orthodox introduction to first team football, I think he will prove his worth. Im also sure that he learned more in that Celtic game than anyone could have taught him.

    The Well Society

    I know there is already a thread concerning the well society but given todays apparent attempts to sell players and the following two posts on the in/outs thread, I thought I'd start a new thread – Mods please feel free to merge this if you wish. "The Society simply has to work, we need to make it work cos frankly we have no other option. There are no buyers out there as already said, certainly none to be trusted, so it's up to us and no-one else. Do we want to effectively own our club or not? I'll struggle but I'll find the money to do my bit in keeping the club out of the hands of some fly by night in the future, if there are any out there." "A know it's off on a tangent, but does anyone know how many have signed up to the Well society so far? Someone on FPC said it was 100 afew days ago, which is a wee bit worrying." Both of these statements are 100% correct from what I've heard. My understanding of things is that if the society fails to reach its target the club will indeed be put up for sale. It's my belief that todays attempts to move players on were made in an attempt to give the society time to work I understand that by the end of march at the latest, they need to get either approx £300000 in the bank or have enough people signed up and paying that amount by instalments to cover the running of the club. Failure to do so will result in the board having to look for a buyer and remember whatever the sale price is, the money will go to JB - as was agreed when he gifted the shares to Motherwell to give the idea of a society run club the chance to work. At the end of last season JB could have washed his hands of the club, put it up for sale and taken any offer he fancied. Instead he gave us this chance to turn the club into something unique. I for one never wish to see collection buckets to stave off adminstration outside Fir Park again and although I've not yet signed up I will have done so before the end of Febuary. I'd urge everyone to think long and hard about whether they can afford it and if so, what kind of a future they want to see for the club – time is running out. We don't have 5 months - nevermind 5 years – to make a decision, it must be made now and as motherwell's supporters it is us and those who follow us that will have to live with the outcome of our decisions.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    I’m sure I’ve said before that we seem to find it easier to get points from teams above us in the league as they are more likely to play an attacking game which give us gaps to exploit but teams like those below us and Livingston close shop and we just don’t have the class to break them down.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    So you’re happy to let those in charge use their judgment to pick his replacement but you’re not happy to let them keep him if they think he’s the best guy for the job?

    On our budget they’re probably all crashing out at Alex Rodriguez maws house

    Cadden replacement? That was my thought as I watched the clip.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    I’d be surprised if we haven’t offered him a very good offer for what we can afford but he will get better offers from other bigger clubs willing to take a chance on him which I think he will be advised to take.

    If he’s still here
  24. Three weeks before we resume football I thought I’d start this chat. With 12 games to the split and - by my reckoning- requiring between 15 & 17 points to avoid the play off spot, can it be done before the split or how much of a squeaky bum time will it be post split? Games pre split are Hibs - H Dundee - A Livi - H StM- A Hearts -H Celtic - A Killie - A Hamilton - H Hibs - A StJ - H Dons - A Rangers - H personally I believe there are at least 5 winnable games but knowing us I can see us losing games we should win but pick up a couple of surprising points along the way so all in all 12 to 14 points leaving us a couple of points short by the split and squeaky bum time until we crawl over the line.
