  1. What would have been the outcome of this whole sorry affair if the two clubs involved weren't Motherwell and Hamilton but Celtic and Rangers! Oh, that's right there wouldn't have been an appeal in the first place!
  2. As I said before, I don't understand how the SFA/SPFL can entertain an appeal from both clubs given that at the first hearing, they both admitted guilt. However, I agree with your point on proportionality and I think they are really more interested in getting their £40K fines dropped.
  3. Burrows should keep off Twitter - look what happened to Trumpo.
  4. Yes and no sponsors names on their kits either. How times have changed.
  5. Keith MacRae in his all black kit. In the second picture he's diving at the feet of Alan Gordon of Dundee United (later of Hibs). Others in picture are Kenny Cameron and Joe Wark.
  6. From the 1931 Scottish Cup Final. Celtic goalkeeper John Thomson gathers the ball from the incoming 'Well player Johnny Murdoch. Just a few months later John Thomson tragically died as the result of a head injury received in an accidental clash with the Rangers centre-forward Sam English in the Old Firm league game at Ibrox.
  7. Steelman1991 I know. I too carry a lot of scar tissue from that time and also from then until now and I have shed rivers of tears along the journey that is supporting the 'Well. It's in the genes and in the blood. Wouldn't change it though.
  8. Excellent post and very well argued and I must say that I concur. As I said previously, my preference would have been to appoint Tommy Wright on a short-term contract until the end of the season with an (incentive) bonus built-in for keeping us up. Assuming that this would succeed, it would allow the club to take more time to consider managerial options going forward.
  9. Daily Rancid reporting Alexander will be new manager.
  10. Steelman1991 spot on but we only lost 4-2.
  11. The previously mentioned John Fallon in the Scottish Cup quarter final at Fir Park in 1972 when we drew 2-2 with the Orks. Davie Whiteford behind him and John Muir on the goal line.
  12. Somebody burnt their toastie. Lol.
  13. Scottish Cup 4th Round Replay on Wednesday 1st March 1972 against Ayr Utd. Big crowd around 15,000. 'Well Players are Billy Campbell, Kirkie Lawson (getting treatment) and Jackie McInally. First game drawn 0-0 on Saturday 26th February 1972 at Somerset Park. Game had midweek afternoon kick-off as we couldn't use floodlights due to being in the middle of power cuts caused by the miners strike. I remember leaving school at 4pm and running all the way to FP to catch the 2nd half. We won 2-1. In the next round we drew 2-2 with Rangers at FP - we were 2-1 up going into injury time when Colin Stein equalised. Ugh!! Lost the midweek replay at Ibrox 4-2. Double ugh!!
  14. Two 'Well legends. Circa 1968/69. Wee Tommy McLean and Joe Wark face-off.
  15. Considering our situation, IMO the best option would be to offer Tommy Wright the job on a short-term contract until the end of the season with a bonus linked in if he keeps us up. Then re-assess after that.
