  1. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/scotland/7860798.stm There's McGhee earlier today talking about the derby bid, saying they will need to up it significant ly for them to accept. They obviously have done so, I wonder how much more (if any) they bid than Cardiff. If it's a bit more, will we see any of the extra to invest in a player or will it still all go to other clubby shenanigans?
  2. Looks like the only extra money McGhee will have to play with will be the wages freed up. Signing Klimps could be out the question then.
  3. Might bump his price tag up a bit if a few folk are interested?
  4. I agree with posts above, Klimpl and Smith on long term deals and bring Lappin back. All depends on how much of the reported £400,000 McGhee recieves to add to the squad. Considering we couldn't afford a £50,000 player a wee while ago it will be interesting to see what he does with the money should he get a decent chunk.

    No doubt that's down to the shift in expecations from last season. One good season seems to have gone to some folks heads.

    Can some of the older members tell me whether it always like this? The reason I ask is because I'm wondering how much ticket prices affect attitudes now. A lot of expectation is placed on the players when people are shelling out a good chunk of their weekly wages and in fairness to the Motherwell support it's not neccessarily a win that we expect, just for the players to give it a damn good go. I think the standing ovation at the end of the 1-0 defeat to killie at the start of last season is testament to that. I went to my first 'well game in 1995 and back then I didn't really notice the crowd as I was just a wee lad. It's only recently I've noticed how attitudes differ when it comes to appropriate ways to 'support' the team. I use the term loosely as I think a good chunk of the crowd go in thinking "I've paid my £22, now do your part Motherwell". That's an attitude that I find hard to argue against as you rarely get £22 worth of entertainment in any SPL game. Maybe the crowd would relax a little if supporting the team wasn't such a financial commitment? Just a thought.

    I've thought many a time over the 5 or 6 months that if McGhee or any of the players decide to renew their contracts at fir park it certainly isn't going to be because of the fans. That said, I'm not convinced there are more genuine arseholes in the crowd than at any other club, it's just that most fans sit in silence unless we are pumping a team. That leaves plenty of silence for minority to fill with abuse. Of course the majority of fans seem to have gotten into the habit of grumbling at everything and booing the players off regardless of how hard fought the game may be. Absolutely mental.
  8. We can't score any more points but I'm sure other countries teams can still lose points. Not sure how it's calculated but I think it's an some kind of average (per game?) rather than a total point system.

    Vs Falkirk

    Got to agree with what's been said in the posts above. The team worked hard and played well in long spells today only to round off a move with a daft mistake or shite cross. Should have won by 3 or 4 but ach well, another day and we would have finished the lot. Falkirk were dirty dirty *banned word* today, I think the stretcher was on the park 3 times in the second half for a Motherwell player. Hopefully TV highlights won't skim over this fact as it was shocking.

    Vs Falkirk

    I think that's part of their problem, they are inconsistant and constantly go from one extreme to the other. I have only seen full matches once or twice this season and I agree with you, they have been pretty uninspiring but seen plenty of highlights and they are capable of putting together outstanding passages of play by the looks of it. One goal stuck out a mile and I canny mind who it was against, might have been hibs in november but they patiently strung together about 20 odd one touch passes before scoring. Their first game of the season against Rangers sticks in my memory too, they were fantastic that day. I'm looking forward to Saturday regardless of how they play, if they are pish we'll hump them and if they are on form then it'll be an outstanding game. Both situations assuming we pick up where we left off against Dundee United of course!

    Vs Falkirk

    Falkirk are a weird team due to the fact they always give teams a tougher game than their league position indicates. Massive under-achievers when you consider how good the football they frequently play is. As for predictions- after Saturday I think it's an absolute shot in the dark. We seem to have gotten ourselves out of that massive black hole we were in last month however the fear is still there. Confidence will be running high and the belief is back by the looks of things so I reckon we'll put 2 or 3 past them. 3-1 Motherwell.
  12. Jings, I completely missed that word. Selective vision.
  13. The article says John Boyle was a witness for spencer against MFC. If that's the case then who was pursuing the money? Surely that would mean a divided back room?
  14. Oops, sorry. That flew completely over my head. No pun intended.
  15. Eh? Where did that torrent of abuse come from? Geez a reasoned assessment of his comments and folk might be able to understand yer point. Remember, Buzz was apparently the lowest paid keeper in the SPL last year and as far as I know still is. If that's true then he's shown a great deal of loyalty to the club by staying on this season after more than proving his worth last year.

    Fair play to him, always liked the guy.
  17. I understand yer point but what's the solution then? They'd get slated for assuming the pitch will be frozen. An automatic move to Fir Park isn't really in the spirit of the game. I guess this is another advert for summer football though.

    Falkirk Tickets

    Nice one. I'm not actually a season ticket holder, just trying to scrounge the spare from my mate. He hasn't recieved the letter, didn't know about the ticket offer till I mentioned it tonight. Is it definately Falkirk or Hamilton? Not Falkirk and Hamilton? I take it they all need voucher H?

    V's Dundee Utd

    Considering all the mental statistics that went along with the game we canny argue with that to be honest. Utter delighted anyway. Good to see midefielders getting goals and having someone who isny scared to have a go from outside the box. Exactly what we need! Wednesday will be interesting but cannot wait till Saturday!

    Falkirk Tickets

    Am I right or wrong in saying that season ticket holders could pick up free tickets for the Falkirk game? I'm sure I'm right but it's no on the official site.

    Avoided the result all day today and just watched the highlights on setanta. Whit a ridiculous three minutes of my life! Outstanding!

    Is naebody excited about this game or something? I think it's going to be one of the hardest games of the season, that's including the OF. If we can get a draw then a very good result. 1-1.
