  1. Don t know if their thumping at Dumfries was a one-off but I did read comments that Van Der Weg was caught for pace at left back. Cadden always seemed to be able to get the better of him so hopefully our new found pace can exploit that particular weakness.

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    If you've never heard it, there's a very good interview with McManus on Simon Ferry's Open Goal podcast. Very positive about Motherwell. I don't remember any great revelations but he did say he knew his time was up in that Edinburgh City game. Anyone that was there knew it as well.

    Pity he's opted for NI - seems to be progressing well and Scotland could be doing with some young centre halves coming through. How come we didn't get a payment for him? Did we just accept he wanted to move away and hadn't been with us long?

    Where do they get this nonsense from? If the squad is worth £9m we should just sell them all, pay off our debts, renovate FirPark and pick up a stack of out of contract players. I'm sure there will be a long line of clubs willing to give us the cash.

    A-ha. I thought you'd maybe posted one of the rumours and were now saying it was a creation!

    Sorry, what creation is that?

    I assume there's nothing imminent. Much as the player's identity may be kept under wraps, the club like to pique our interest by tweeting if there's an upcoming announcement. Can't beat a good rumour to keep it interesting in the meantime though!

    Considering their manager has only just left I would have been surprised if they had made contact already (if they are even interested).

    Don't forget Dunne is probably No.1 for the left back spot depending on the formation.

    Doesn't look as though we can expect a lot of goals from him but he looks speedy and we've been crying out for a quick winger. Going by the video posted above he's not scared to take a player on but he could be doing with improving his crossing. We were never going to sign the finished article but it looks as though there's plenty to work with. It's certainly more promising than Calvin Miller. Also, the video is from his Chesterfield days so he may have improved his final ball since then.

    For all the names mentioned, this deal is completely out of the blue. I like it when we manage to keep our business under wraps, all the leaks seem a bit unprofessional (although they do keep things interesting). It's nice to add a bit of pace - we've been missing the sort of out and out pace that terrifies defenders and makes teams change their shape since Johnson and Humphrey before that.

    Yeah, I had assumed that. There must be a limit to cross-border loans though. I'm guessing 5 or Ashley would have pushed it further in Rangers' case.

    Did Rangers not bring in 5 players on loan from Newcastle (including Bigi) a few years ago? That must have been taking things to the limit.

    Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

    He joined us in a January transfer window and was pretty uninspiring. I'm surprised to see we then offered him a contract in the summer (according to the linked Wiki page on him).
