  1. I don't think Sol is a bombscare. Sign of the times on this forum. Let's see how he does next season.
  2. Again like an offthefringes titbit on JB. I used to be dead set against the players against the club at the time of the administration but then you speak to a couple and you learn what really went down......
  3. I'm not up for John Boyle signing in this in's and out's thread. He's no Keith Lasley or Stevie Hammell, more of a Brian McClair should he sign up again. Could try him out at left back though.
  4. Whilst we’ve had three reasonable chances. That’s the huge gap.
  5. Lamie 1st, Slattery 2nd.
  6. Ojala off, made the game different

    I'm willing to give it another go next season. I think the quality of the squad individually is better with a team that really doesn't know how to get the ball down and pass, yet individually they have capabilities. 3 months max if we start badly.
  8. Hmmm ok team selection! Kelly Grimshaw Mugabi Soljohm(ojala if not) Lamie O'Hara Tierney Slattery Cornelius Van Veen, Woolery Certainly not what everyone will agree discuss!
  9. I've no ill regard to Boyle What I can tell you is he shat it when making players redundant. A thing that embittered those specific players.
  10. I hope we do. I was a young boy at Katowice home game, loved the glamour of it and seeing something different. Then I was spoiled with trips to some great places. Aalesund, Nancy, Odense, Bucharest....gave me an excuse to see places I never would. Camaraderie and memories. The games are not simply a by-product but to get to the places and sing the songs & walk the walk is something I don't take for granted.

    The previous comment is harsh on Shields. He is a second striker. He does not fit in with our structure. It's a bit like when we signed Vigurs who had a position he found successful at his previous club and then never playing him there. If you adopt a style - then we can't sign players who's success lies outside this. He is not a wide man.
  12. Ummmmmmm Kelly Mugabi Lamie Soljohm McGinley Donnelly Woolery (Cornelius/O'Hara/Tierney) Slattery Shaw Van Veen

    Slattery done something behind the scenes to be dropped like a stone. He did. To what lengths that this is known/punished for I do not know. The fact he's on the bench seems like it's not dead in the water.

    I think that was more a comment on Alexanders philosophy than a dig at Donnelly himself. There's a lot of a head down, arse up and I feel for them to a degree. My most annoying thing about today, is Alexanders comment of "I knew it would be scrappy" that's because we make every game that way with no intention to pass the ball.

    Not far away - I would have Mugabi for O'Donnell & that be fine for me. Lot's of endeavor, 2 youths to prime. I like it. Stevie73 get him on a 3year deal.
  16. Kelly Mugabi - Johansen - Lamie - McGinley Slattery - Donnelly - Shaw - Cornelius Van Veen - Shields 4-4-2 no chance! Also couldn't fit in Woolery but could fit in for shields but didn't think it fit the shape of a striker.
  17. I think if we take away games v the old firm including three defeats we have a 9-9-9 record. What does that mean in reality? I think it's what as Well fans we would take this especially after some worries in the preseason League cup. The football been dire, sometimes sure. The high press high intensity games I've enjoyed like Dundee United in the rain! Pure football hasn't been in site by any team I've seen outside really Celtic. Some guys will never make it but we seem intent on giving contracts after 3-4 decent games from some. Some have said give Grimmy a contract, I like him, but it's polar opposite to my thoughts. Exactly the player who we should let go and wish him all the best and see someone new better or worse. Some players are incapable of getting to higher standards. It's been ok a lot riding on the next 4 games.
  18. The first line is correct. Robbos Boy is deflecting from O'Donnell's singular performance by discussing others. O'Donnell has not done anything to deserve to be playing.
  19. Kelly Mugabi - Johansen - Ojala - Lamie/McGinley Cornelius - Donnelly - Slattery Woolery - Van Veen - Roberts I agree with many stated and try the team out for a few weeks. Also I think that 4 at the back are principally defenders we don't need expansive wing backs when playing a front three, more required in a two. Hence drop Carroll. Support can be give by slattery and cornelius Tempted by Shaw too forgot about him
  20. O'Hara maybe O'Connor - rest can go.

    I'm trying to think of when its backfired. Has it yet?
  22. Definitely agree - I watched the game though and thought both sides for sure were poorer than a normal Motherwell display - to lose we will need to be poor. The fear is taking it to easy and not approaching with intensity.
  23. Regarding this forum & Facebook - couple of people who doubted us today expressing the delight of a victory. Well done boys. The rest notable in their absence, I'm sure they will be back next time we lose. It's ok to not be an Alexander fan, and it's ok to express any doubt about any players or tactics after defeat, lastly it's ok to say well done to the boys on a quarter cup final qualification irrespective.
