  1. I find it hard to imagine that a guy in Alan Burrows position would ignore a court summons to appear without taking legal advice first. I'll wait until I hear his side of the story before believing The Sun's take on it.
  2. Leeds boy did get the job, reported on the bbc.
  3. Some talking of needing wingers as Hylton and Seedorf aren't good enough, personally I'm still hopeful Hylton can contribute. Do any the guys who have seen Harry Robinson know if he will be a good option on the wing or does he look like another fringe player? Apologies if this ends with another nepotism discussion.
  4. Queen of the South had a similar away kit 2 or 3 years back.
  5. I don't think the Buns will be happy with any comparison of their games with Rome. Most of their fans seem to get quite annoyed by it for some reason.
  6. Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but I see BBC Alba have a Motherwell FC programme on tomorrow night at 9.30.
  7. Quote from SR on the official site:- “Christian was a gentleman. He always had a smile on his face playing the game he loved. “This is a tragic loss for his family, his friends and all of the football community, and to us at Motherwell FC who had the opportunity to work with him. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this very sad time.”
  8. The mock ups using the Erima templates look superb UBH, love the C&A trackie top. The white away kit also looks excellent but was there not something about a France World Cup kit having to be canned as the sleeves were different colours?
  9. So Nicola Sturgeon stating that she is 'minded' to ban all gatherings of more then 500 people that require police or ambulance support. Ok for Livi and the Accies as they'd still be able to get all their fans in. Looking like this is going to be sooner rather than later.
  10. Second time the boy has signed an extension when others may have opted to let the contract run out and make more cash elsewhere. Fair play to him, shows a level of loyalty to the club that is rare these days.
  11. Maybe we should teach one of our short-arsed forwards to take a long throw (no pun intended) to allow the big guys to get in the box. On Tuesday we had Gallagher throwing the ball into the box with no-one able to challenge for it when it got there.
  12. Steven is an inexperienced Ref at top flight level, I did notice however that the 4th official was Bobby Madden. I wonder how much advice older heads like Madden offer from the touchline to the newer guys during games.
  13. The 'too loyal to certain players' remark was an interesting one, I'd expected an excuse about 'flu in the camp but the comment, along with Hartley getting hooked at half-time, gave me the impression we wouldn't be seeing much of him, at least over the coming weeks. It'll be interesting to see if that was a throwaway line from Robinson borne out of frustration at the performance or if it will have some impact on team selection, albeit with limited options through injuries and suspension, over the next few weeks. I'd like to see Gallagher and Donnelly given a chance as a central defensive partnership but seem to recall Donnelly has another suspension coming up so unless he thinks Maguire is ready I don't see many other options apart from Hartley. Just as long as it isn't Mugabi!
  14. The number of games teams in League One and League Two can play is crazy. 46 league matches for League 2 along with games in the FA Cup, League Cup, as well as the EFL Trophy - which has now been padded out with EPL youth teams so it requires a Group stage before the 5 knock-out rounds.
  15. I don't suppose your Dad posts on here after a defeat Andy?
  16. I don't suppose Tony Watt smuggled Graham Carey back from CSKA in his luggage?
  17. Watt signing now announced on club Twitter.
  18. I thought the word was that we had been looking to extend the loan but Wigan wanted him back as they couldn't score in the proverbial barrel?
  19. Griffiths played in the 4-0 game at Dens a few years back. I'm sure Jamie Murphy got a couple that day.
  20. Credit too to Les Hutchison for doubling the money paid back by the Trust over the last year/18 months.
  21. It's a good read for a Well fan, the quality of some Kindle books can be a bit iffy. I didnt see any problems witb this one.
  22. There's a kindle version of the Alex Smith book on Amazon for a fiver.
  23. Bobby Moore would have been in the Fulham side?
  24. That may have been the shortest ever competitive debut by a Well player who has actually started the game. Hope Long is ok and fit enough for a run out against Morton.
