    Steelmen Online Motherwell Photo Thread

    I can't link to Twitter from work, but if you can find Laura Brannan on Twitter she posted it recently....

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    My point was mainly tongue in cheek, but the amount of Celtic content he's liked and the number of tweets from their fans saying they'll see him in January or similar he's also liked, would suggest that his head may very well still be along the M74. The media have already seized on his 'likes' when the move was going ahead so I wouldn't be surprised if they do so again if Celtic need the pressure put back on publicly.

    Someone needs to have a chat with him about the like button on Twitter, a lot of Celtic related content he's liking just now

    Jim Gannon - ten years on

    Not having a go at you here, but that kind of sums up Scottish football... Gannon rightly or wrongly felt the players should be avoiding alcohol during the season to improve their fitness. Collins had a similar issue at Hibs.

    Jim Gannon - ten years on

    He wanted the players to avoid alcohol completely during the season. You can argue the merits of that and the context of that night, but it was quite telling seeing the different reactions of the players. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Jim Gannon - ten years on

    He was interviewed for the Hibs job shortly before Motherwell and the story of both interviews was much the same. He had a depth of knowledge on every player at the clubs which was incredible, right down to the youths. He also had a file of transfer targets for every position which was also incredibly detailed, with several targets and how their qualities would complement other targets. It's fair to say the board weren't unhappy to see him go, but they were certainly extremely impressed at the outset. Some obvious issues with man management, but I remember at Craigan's testimonial race night all of the younger players were on soft drinks as he had asked all of the players to be - the senior pros were all defiantly on the beer.

    Hopefully he comes back fully fit after surgery and puts in some performances that alert clubs other than Celtic to his talent and potential, and that allows the club to choose not to deal with Celtic again after their shoddy handling of the whole thing. Based on nothing other than interviews he's given I get the impression he'll do what he thinks is best for his long term career so I'd hope of it means another year at Fir Park he'll be fine with that. He's too good to be wasted in Scottish football, he's got the potential to follow Andy Robertson's path.

    General wondering here, but how long is Celtic's £3million bid 'accepted' for? There surely must be a point where such a bid is off the table and a new offer needs to be made?

    Tweet from a Hearts fan; "Imagine Leicester bid £20million for Tierney. Celtic accept. Tierney doesn't come to an agreement. Player no doubt gets lauded as a "proper Celtic man" by the same fans chastising David Turnbull. Level of self entitlement from the Old Firm is staggering. Geez peace." Spot on!

    There's the reason fees are 'Undisclosed'... Every agent and club will know we've just came into £3million and the wages and fees increase as a result. Fees are undisclosed for a number of reasons, to hide information from fans is nowhere near the top.

    2018/19 Game 33: Rangers (H) April 7th 12.30pm Kick Off

    He's generally a very angry chap during the games full stop... I've seen him offering a square go to a fellow fan who asked him to stop swearing so much in front of young kids. A totally different guy in his day job... As has been mentioned, the throwing of the lighter/pie is inexcusable and the culprit should be punished. What's more annoying is the fact that at the very point the media finally start to highlight the sectarian issues the supporters of the other clubs now seem to be on a mission to steal that spotlight, and are making it very easy for the media to quietly move on from the sectarian singing. Gerrard no longer has to dodge questions about FTP and FB's and instead gets to paint The Rangers as the innocent victims. We'll never know if The Rangers could have stepped it up yesterday if they needed to as the whole gameplan changed when we gifted them a goal, but outwith the 3 gifts they were given there was not much for Gillespie to do. Ditto McGregor mind. If Ariyibi converted the Hastie cross early on then the Motherwell mindset changes as well but neither team was creating chance after chance. The second goal was the worst for me, Tait slips (fair enough, that's bad luck) but leaves a gap that they exploit at left back, Dunne goes out to cover and we look like we'll deal with it fairly comfortably until he gives Turnbull a terrible pass and there's now a gaping hole where Dunne should have been for them to easily exploit. Avoidable on so many levels....

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    I think this is the situation in a nutshell - Speedie read out "28 David Hastie" and there was a bit of pantomime booing at the error.
