    I didn't even consider that a possibility. Regardless of is he's sacked or leaves by 'mutual consent' I'd think that his credibility as footballing director would be completely undermined. That said, now that you mention it, it's such a weird setup they have there that it wouldn't surprise me.

    Hearts away, 14/9

    From front to back we were very, very good. The players all look like they know the job they've to do. Thought Hartley and Polworth were the standouts, and Campbell had his best game in many months. The strength and depth in the squad is plain to see when you look at the substitutions we made. I thought O'Hara in particular did well to take a bit of control when he came on. I think it says a lot that we've come away with a win at Tynecastle feeling like we should (not could) have scored more. I've also got a feeling the backline will be gutted to not keep the clean sheet after putting in an otherwise fantastic shift. I'm sure there will be many blips, but there's a definite feeling that there's even more to come from this team.

    Trying to work out Tanner's decision not to sign on for a few months and instead, go hunting for a club at this stage. He's not been in the shop window for 18 months and is effectively, untested after injury. He's maybe feeling it in himself that he won't get competitive football (beyond the reserves) any time soon for us, and his best chances would to be become a free agent after the transfer window. Maybe looking for first team football lower down the leagues to build himself back up.

    Vs Hibs

    That's that mystery solved then.

    Vs Hibs

    That was an excellent game of football. Great atmosphere and I was sure there was more than 5300 odd in today. Hibs were well and truly still in the game at 1-0 and at times, they passed it about really neatly (then tended to fuck it up), however we just had everything today - aggression, composure, creativity, teamwork. Gives me real hope for this season and I definitely think there is far more to come from this squad.

    Day off work so drove down to see the reserves at Cappielow win 4-1 this afternoon. Main points: Ilic - in the right place at the right time for two goals - good stuff, however on the ball didn't really stand out in any way. Tanner - two assists (one from a corner) however a fairly quiet afternoon and again, didn't really stand out as a senior player. Hopefully it's just a matter of time and confidence. Barry McGuire and Adam Livingstone both had that bit of quality and physicality about them. The two big centre halves won everything as well.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Don't know if my view is skewed having seen two awful leg breaks playing amateur on astroturf, but today gave me the fear. Seemed like every physical dual left someone on the deck with some sort of injury. Not sure if upping the physicality on these pitches is a good idea.

    Livingston vs Motherwell 03/08/2019

    Seemed like there was no room on that pitch at all, we certainly didn't capitalise on the pace we have out wide. Or rather, Livi did well to nullify it. Or rather, the pitch got in the way. Or rather, we weren't very good. Probably a bit of all three. To leave with a point is decent enough. To put a positive spin on it, the fact we got a point when we we're quite shite suggests..... something. Not sure what. Carrol was good. Gallagher was loving putting his team-mates under pressure with some awful passes. Gillespie will gain us many points this season. That concludes my clinical insights.

    Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

    Not sure if this has been posted, but an interesting analysis of Curtis Main's career, his time with us and what he might bring to Aberdeen. The jist of the entire article is that he's fucking awful. https://www.modernfitba.com/blogs/2019/6/10/rate-my-transfer-curtis-main

    Aside from other points made, Erwin broke through playing alongside Sutton and McDonald. Couldn't ask for more experience on and off the pitch. He comes across as a confident young player but it's a huge ask, particularly when he doesn't have older heads around him.

    What was really notable last night was there seems to be a real fight and desire pulsing through the team. Even in the last 10 minutes folk were battling for every ball. Folk also seemed to know their jobs. Hopefully this is another season where the fitness and organisation gives us an edge. Add in a few classy looking players and I don't think it's unreasonable to be excited about the first premiership tests.

    2019-20 League Cup

    Totally agree - I'd love to see them both start as I was on the edge of my seat every time either of them got the ball. Great entertainment. I'm basing it purely on Robinson's comments about having players who can change games now. I'm sure we'll see them start in at least one of the group games.

    2019-20 League Cup

    Agreed, but not sure we'll see that. Robinson likes impact players and the team earning the right to play and all that. He said as much in the dressing room post match video - "we've now got players who can change games". He's probably right. Players coming on against a tiring defence is a totally different proposition than taking on a defender full of energy. They might be best deployed later in the game. I'll trust his judgement.
