  1. I forgot we got pumped in every game before reaching the final right enough aye. (Hammell was good against United as a midfielder as well)
  2. If you're forgetting that he played a significant part in our run to the Cup Final then that's your own fault tbh.
  3. Does anyone know if the ticket office is open tomorrow? ETA: It is not.
  4. I think to give first shout to individuals who are affected by this specific scenario, is the preferred method...
  5. From pals who work in the industry; aye. It's a frustration among folk that doesn't play out in the numbers. While individuals rightly complain about it, the numbers don't back it up for groups, hence why it's done.
  6. There was an article in the Herald about him the other week; https://www.heraldscotland.com/sport/18156033.craig-tanner-bids-return-form-horror-injury-motherwell-threatened-end-career/ Not entirely clear why through it, but certainly no ill will on Tanner's side. I'd assume when he was signed he was on a hefty wage, and we'd reduced our offer on a new one dramatically, both in terms of money and length of contract. From his point of view as well, maybe best for him mentally just to be somewhere else for a while. Sounds like an absolutely miserable time for him over that period, so a fresh start probably best for all involved. From memory there was a suggestion that it was pretty significant. No quotes, but I'm pretty sure we were 'delighted' with what we'd negotiated. Confident we'll be getting the same % of sell on from that deal as we'll be getting from our Dom Thomas one.
  7. I don't think Murphy would pay people to lick his arsehole, so he'd immediately be more use than McCormack.
  8. Enjoy these vague posts enormously, get it telt.
  9. I'd also assume that Hastie, as with all deals we seem to do, featured a sell-on in it. Perhaps a lesser fee than we'd have received in a tribunal, but a greater income overall?
  10. "It was the first time I'd played at Ibrox, cos they weren't in the League.” God bless you, Lionel.
  11. I think you've probably answered your own question with your source, there. I'd be doubtful of it's veracity. Cool your jets on Hastie, I heard from a pal that it was resolved, and I imagine that'll be raised at the AGM. Cadden will be longer term with the jiggerypokery done by Columbus/Oxford/Cadden's agent, but I'd be very confident of getting something from it.
  12. Yes. Yes. Yes. Hope this assists, Kind regards.
  13. This is my bet for a Grimshaw goal, maybe not this weekend, but some time, followed by my head jettisoning from my shoulders and taking flight over the Lanarkshire sky.
  14. Premier will take the OF Games. I'd bet BBC taking Dundee United Hibs to Friday night and possibly our game for the other. Edit: If Auchenleck get through, probably that for an early Saturday morning game.
  15. Agree, tbh. His performance in the Semi-Final was an absolute embarrassment. Offers the full-back zero, either in terms in protection or as an outball for him, occasionally swings in a decent strike once every 4 months, but he's not for me.
  16. He's been dribbled past more than any other midfielder in the league. (Vela is 7th on that list)
  17. I too am concerned that *checks notes* Stevie Mallan, Scott Allan and Josh Vela will bully our midfield.
  18. Agree entirely, the atmosphere at Parkhead benefits massively from it. Intrigued to see how it works out at Killie, which is probably a better indicator as to how it would go for us.
  19. We've drawn Celtic/Rangers away 3 times in the last decade in the knockout stages across the two cups, and met Rangers at Hampden twice in semi finals. In that period we've been eliminated by St. Mirren (x2), Hamilton (x2), Inverness (x2), Hibernian, Aberdeen (x3), Albion Rovers, Dundee United, Morton, Hearts (x2), Ross County. We get pretty good cup draws, tbh.
  20. Aye. I wasn't concerned by Hearts or Hibs, but if the NI job comes up he'll be there, I reckon.
  21. No longer! In as a replacement for Ibrahim Savane at Livi.
  22. Nah. It comes off Hamalaainen (#14)'s right toe rather than Johnson (#5)'s arm. It does look like that from the angle though!
