  1. Spot on. I think it's a fair comment from McGhee. Ever since the apparent absolute and unforgivable treachery of considering another job I don't think the guy will ever be able to say anything right by some supporters now. I do think he is finding that section of support frustrating and has every right to speak out.

    Prices are the same however season ticket holders could get another adult and child in free. Only thing is the free tickets were to be picked up by the 22nd of December.

    That's a bit harsh and surprising considering yer other 'stay positive' posts. He was integral to one of Motherwells best seasons for a decade so I think we can forgive him for 3 months off form. Best of luck wherever Chris goes!
  4. That's the thing, how do you tell the difference between someone trying hard but having a bad game and someone not pulling their weight? Some fans don't care about differentiating between the two because it gives them the chance to act like the big man.
  5. I'd be surprised if Saunder's doesn't start. McGhee has said this week that he needs players on the fringes who will make it hard for him to pick the team. While he was referring to O'Brein and Darren Smith in this instance I think the same will apply for Saunders. I don't understand how it can be considered a confidence knock coming into a team like ours just now. Surely getting dropped for an off form player after 2 solid performances would be a bigger boot in the baws?
  6. Yip, a big section of the crowd was on form on saturday. Unsure of whether they were well boys or not but it was entertaining. That said, I eventually moved seats to the other side of the stand because of the absolute shite that was coming out of one group of guys. Quite a few were spouting anti-Irish pish at McCarthy and Jim O' Brien while he was warming up. Add in some anti-English drivel and primary school patter such as 'fuck off ya wee poof' (clever) directed at Accies fans, it kinda sucked the enjoyment out the game. Sad thing is it seemed to entertain a few hundred folk. As for the original poster in this thread, well said. It's ludicrous to think a professional footballer would take any motivation from abuse dished out in the stands. They all have their own aspirations and expectations which will no doubt be the drive behind their game, behind that will be the expectations of the manager and their team mates.

    If he preferred going to Hearts then why isn't he the Hearts manager? Even with his wage increase it was still less than Hearts offered (if rumours are to be believed) so it couldn't have been anything other than the players that kept him at the club. It certainly won't have been the fans that kept him here anyway.

    McGhee - “We are bottom of the league. We are the worst team and I am the worst manager,” I think he knows it.

    Mcghee Must Go.......

    True that. We haven't been playing well but still creating enough chances to win games, that's why I had shared McGhee's optimism that we are 'bubbling under the surface'. Now I'm starting to doubt it but as we all know the potential is there. Maybe not to finish 3rd but to at least get ourselves up the table a bit. I can understand why people are frustated with McGhee however it's hard to tell if his tactics are working when the players; for some bizarre reason; are really struggling to put the basics together. Can McGhee really be blamed for the number of slack balls and missed half chances we've had in the last few games?

    Mcghee Must Go.......

    Pish thread. The in's and out of whether McGhee should stay or go is being discussed in about 6 other threads just now and just about every post is more eloquently put than yours.

    Fixing It

    We've scored once in the last 7 games. Last win was 2-0 against accies which took is up to third.

    Accies On Saturday

    Unusual decisions from McGhee today however the systems he has tried clearly haven't been working either. There's time for a change and that time was today, unfortunately it went down the pan too. Regardless of what team formation/selection McGhee puts out is irrelevant if players aren't performing, they aren't winning balls they should be and are making a mess of absolute basic passes/crosses/shots/tackles/headers. There is only so much McGhee can do before the responsibility lies with the players to at least do the minimum requirements on the pitch. For whatever reason that's not happening and I'm not sure how much difference McGhee can make in a situation like that. I think the fact that I started sincerely clapping when we managed to string a 3rd pass together without losing possession sums it up. In comparison to the usual '2 passes and lose it' those odd 3rd passes were absolutely subliminal. Strange days eh.
  13. That's been an on-going problem this season and was blatantly obvious today. Any high balls punted up to the front two probably give the opposition about a 95% chance of regaining posession however we continue to play the high ball into them. To be fair Porter won a few today which is a change from the usual 0.
  14. I canny help but believe McGhee when he says we're due to turn good, I've see glimpses of it in most games this season, especially against Kilmarnock believe it or not. Still clinging onto the hope that good times are just around the corner. After all, who else would step into his shoes just now?

    Season 09/10

    The Poll is a bit skewed. I voted that I'll not be getting a season ticket but that's because I pay at the gate most games and will more than likely continue to do so. I'm sure others have voted that way too.
  16. As much as it annoys me that McGhee's response to nearly every defeat is that we will 'come good' I canny help but agree with him. I'd love for him to tell us exactly what's wrong and what he is going to do to change it however I think it's a mixture of confidence and luck that is the problem just now. I thought we played no bad last night, dominated for large spells and strung together some decent moves but it was yet another game where we could have played for 10 hours and not scored. We have goalscorers in the team so that's not the problem. As for the goals conceded, the defence did look really really unorganised at times and it's nay surprise at all they scored 2. If it wasn't for the posession we had it would have been more.
