  1. The problem is, whenever the club have reduced prices it has only been for a single game. It's no good doing that in my opinion. They should be looking to bring prices down on a consistent basis as that is the only way that such an idea will work. It takes longer than one week for word to get out that football is cheaper to go to.
  2. Couldn't agree more. It may not be worth much to the OF, what with them rubbing shoulders with Europes finest every 2nd Wednesday or so, but it's still the league cup to me. I certainly wouldn't knock back a good run in it.

    In's And Out's

    All I did was post that I heard we may be getting an Everton youngster for a bit and everyone started laughing. I didn't get the joke, so I just laughed as well

    Anyone heard anything about a young striker from Everton apparently being our next signing?

    Didn't Fraser only just arrive in the summer? I can't see him being sold or released just now, especially with only 19 year old Kosiorowski as the other back-up keeper to Ruddy at present.

    Ticket Prices

    Despite the fact that you have already said you don't think that life should grind to a halt simply because you happen to be out of work, you don't think unemployed people should be using £5 per week from their income to attend a football game? I'd say that a price-cut for unemployed people is just as valid as it is for students, especially considering the unemployment level we have in the Motherwell area. I've posted two quotes for you there chief, which shows that she's at least looking to discuss the various ideas and ways in which we would look at getting more bums on seats. Sure, she mentioned unemployment as well, but she's far from "harping on about it". In fact, having read over the thread, i'd go as far as to say that it's you who is doing all the "harping on" about unemployed fans in this thread, not her.

    Is there really any need for that kind of language now? Kind of ironic that your pulling someone up about using abusive language, yet you seem to find it perfectly acceptable to do the same...

    Ticket Prices

    I like your assumption about 90% of people who are unemployed working on the side. Do you have any actual evidence to back that up? Or are you just talking nonsense? This is a ridiculous statement to be honest, Brazilian. Looking at the months of September & October of this season, there are two home matches in each month. Thats £20 if we go by the £10 entry fee for unemployed people per month, which is £5 a week. Taking £5 from a £65 unemployment payment isn't beyond the realms of reality, is it? Your basically talking about the price of a packet of cigarettes or two pints. Wellgirl came up with some pretty valid & interesting points, and your response is to accuse her of "harping on" about getting unemployed people into Fir Park. She made something like two posts mentioning unemployed people, and also made points regarding students and juvenile ticket schemes, all of which are worth looking at.

    Quite simply, it's the prices that keep me from going to Fir Park every home game. Especially with the way things are work-wise these days. £20 is simply too steep.

    Mfc Tv

    I'm not sure what creating a podcast actually entails, but if it's done regularly and done well, it could be quite decent. A bit of banter, news, maybe even get a few old players on for interviews and the like.
  12. Thats the spirit! I'll just be watching it in the house I reckon. Any pubs going to be showing it in the Motherwell/Wishaw area?

    Mfc Tv

    £40 or £50 for an online service? I'm not really up to speed on this sort of thing, but in the past i've always had trouble with streaming sites, seeing a lot of slowdown, glitchy picture, loss of sound etc.
  14. When the subject of television revenue was brought up, I actually wonder if it would make such a huge difference to us? The deal that was signed in 2008 with Setanta was for a rumoured £125 million over 4 seasons (£31.25 million per season), which we shall go with for arguments sake. It was reported when the original deal was signed in 2004 that the top two teams in the SPL would recieve 32% (£10 million) of the total money between them, so the OF take 16% of the cash every year whilst the rest get around 6.8% each. That leaves 68% of the money (£21.25 million) to be shared out between the remaining 10 teams, which would work out at around £2.1 million each if the money is distributed equally, although I think it increases slightly for the teams higher up the table and decreases for the teams at the bottom. Would an SPL without the OF not be able to find a television deal worth around £20 million per season?
  15. At the end of the day, someone has to finish in 7th, it just so happens that this year it's our turn. It could be worse, we could be fighting relegation. Would that please everyone? At least the games would mean something then. We finished third last season, which was excellent. We haven't managed to do as well again this season, but thats just how it goes. We should use the rest of the games to bring in some young lads who McGhee thinks could step up to the main squad next season. We got some good news with the season ticket prices & the Cooper stand, and we can look forward to another game with Accies, and maybe even a few decent youngsters getting a crack at the first team that otherwise wouldn't have. It could be worse. We could be in Falkirks position. I'd bet their fans would happily swap positions with us and face a load of "meaningless" games for the rest of the season. Rather than stay at home in the weekends to come, why not shock the shit out of everyone at the club and show that the support will be there even if we aren't challenging for third place?
  16. Stick behind the team anway i'd say. If someone's wanting to support a team who will be competing for trophies at the end of most seasons then surely Motherwell wouldn't be the best choice? The seasons not over. We have to get top 6. After that, it's all about finishing as high up the league as we can.
  17. Is it just me, or does this post make no sense? Surely if McGhee was dreaming of leading the team out at Hampden, a bad performance and defeat which cost him that dream would bother him?
  18. I never knew that. Surely such a combination has a good chance of happening? That changes things as far as the importance of the rest of our season goes for me then!
  19. Yeah, Brighton would be a step down from Motherwell, plus they aren't as big as jobs he's been linked with, and even turned down, in the past. If he leaves us, i'd hope it was for a bigger club (Chelsea maybe? )
