  1. BBC footage of my first ever well game at Fir Park. Loved watching this, and shows how I got hooked to being a well fan. I was one of the 5000 schoolkids, and Cammy Murray, the Lanark Grammar PE teacher was in the dugout as a coach. Great game, and amazing to see Cooper being a legend again.

    Met Chick Young a few times. He's a really decent bloke. Keen to have a blether with you, and came across well. He also had a lovely big golden retriever that was ancient, but he took a long to a Dulka Pumpherston game at Moor Park in Lanark. He was decent.
  3. I'd take mark Mc ghee again. My son says he looks like Steve from Minecraft
  4. Before my time, but only heard great stories about him. RIP.

    Baraclough Out

    Still a well fan. No longer proud to be a Well fan. Sums it up.
  6. Apparently a rumour doing the rounds that Aiden McGeady is coming in on loan from Everton on Monday.....
  7. 1. Celtic 2. Aberdeen 3. Hearts 4. Kilmarnock 5. Motherwell 6. Partick 7. Dundee utd 8. Dundee 9. Inverness 10. Ross County 11. St Johnstone 12. Accies
  8. Listened to the Monday show this morning. Chick was a distraught disgrace. Flow was great and basically was the voice of reason in a heavily biased radio show. Ferguson was very balanced
  9. Was there not a lot of celtic fans I. The Cooper on skimpy Sunday? I remember the highlights and looked like about a third of the fans were celtic.
  10. He's desperate to go, and he has never been at a football match when the home team haven't won, Lanark United, Motherwell, even the fecking Accies game on new years day....
  11. I'm thinking of taking my 6 year old son, but having major second thoughts. Could be a powderkeg, and might be better watching on the tv, but on the other hand it could be the biggest game I've ever seen as a well fan... Need advice!
  12. My son has never been at a football match when the team hes supporting has lost. 4 Lanark United ones and the New Year game against St Johnstone this year. The lucky talisman is coming on Thursday. 2-0 'Well!
  13. Picked up the tickets to be safe! Merry Christmas!
  14. Just wondering about the availability of tickets for the game on new years day. Saw on the Accies site it will be ticket only, our allocation being sold from Fir Park, and any remaining ones being sold at the gate. Hope to take my six year old son and my dad along, and unsure how many will be available on the gate. Worth taking the risk for walking up on new years day to get in, or should I try and make it to FP on Saturday? Cheers folks
  15. been a lot of negativity (understandably) on the forum on recent weeks, and a few have touted the fact that we are doomed already. I pray that this is not the case, but if the worst case scenario happened, and Motherwell FC were gone, where would your allegiance lie? Would you be lost from the game forever, or would you follow another local club. Probably a bit controversial and I will say it is a purely hypothetical post! I'd go for Lanark United myself.
  16. Never changes, but this year has been the worst mood on the board that I remember.
  17. Just as the topic says, reading the boards it seems like we will be relegated by March, and out of both cups before a ball is kicked. Yes European football was shite again, and we have not replaced some players, but does this not happen every year? A Lot of posters here seem to be willing the team to fail, and saying that SMC hasn't got a clue, yet every season we seem to come up with the goods. yyes we're skint, Yes we've not replaced some players, Yes our cup form been pish, but I've seen this happen in 25 years as a well fan. Every start of season is a clean slate, and other teams are worse off than us. (killie, St Johnstone when May away... Etc..) So let's not even predict stuff until we have at least had a few games! Rant over!
  18. Was this worse than HB or MyPa? Fuck sake, I remember watching Motherwell getting beat 2 1 by Lanark United a few years back. This could be the right good kick up the arse like we got after the 5_6 dons game, and get us to a really decent season. Didn't see the game, so not gonna comment, but shit happens in football. Wee teams have the habit of turning it on against big names. Whatever happens, I'll still be a well fan this time next year.
  19. Andy, I fitted your aerial and sky dish when you first moved into your house in Pettinain. I accidentally left my step ladders there during the job. SWhen can I pick them up?

    St Johnstone

    Ainsworth was great today.
  21. He loved it. Had an absolute ball. Sat in the Cooper stand, about 5 rows from the front, and he was great. Loved the rude men who were saying the linesman was a cheat, and came back singing Well Well Super well. Great day out and thanks for the tips and advice!
  22. Still trying to change my profile pic. He's the wee baby in my arms in the original pic! He's well excited about it, and ive pointed out Faddy when we've seen him driving his car down the road from our house. Never thought about the autographs, but I'm sure he will have a great day tomorrow. Hope that some of the players will let him have a wee photo with them before the match! Looking forward to finally seeing my brick on the wall too! Been a while since ive had a chance to go to FP, but looking forward to it. Lets hope for a goalfest! 'Mon the Well!!!!
