  1. I’ve watched motherwell for almost 50 years and I’ve seen so many dross games in my time but that today. Jesus help us. Two appalling non football teams on show, on the occasion the ball was on the deck it was inevitably Turnbull who was responsible but being surrounded by hoof ball specialists put pay to any form of decent entertainment. Having 5 players up front at the end was just an embarrassing example of football in this country, totally devoid of any tactical nouse or skill, utter desperation from a dinosaur manager. Even when we were truly shite in the 80s we at least tried to get the ball down and play. I paid £29 for that today at a time of year I can ill afford to pay£29. I won’t be doing that again in a hurry, Appalling excuse for football!!

    Cup Final

    I’ve not watched the ladies play before but they look miles off Hibs who all look in better shape, fitter, better movement. They’ve strolled the game which is a shame. im not sure if we have full time players or not but Hibs look as if they train every day. great achievement them getting to a final though.
  3. Sometimes wonderful things happen!! Go on big man!! it would’ve been a crime for us not to get anything out that game.

    The League Cup 2018'19 Thread

    I think this is a tough tie but a good one. With Berra out and lafferty probably away I don’t think we should be going into this with any fear. hearts won’t be jumping with joy having to play us. We dumped them out the cup last year and I predict the same this year!!

    The Small-Medium Rebuild 2018'19

    Just broke the news to my 8yr old. He’s Ran upstairs crying, he’s just got over Moult leaving!! Disaster. £1m for a punt 12 months ago, I find it hard to complain. He’s been a great player and by all accounts a great lad. He’s made a huge impact at the club in a very short time, I hope he goes on and gets success in the future. Good luck big man, you’ll be missed.

    Season 2018-19 home and away kit thread

    Home one is horrible. Cheap looking. Away one is fine but would be smarter with claret socks. Amber socks look ridiculous.

    Steelmen Online Motherwell Photo Thread

    I know Rangers and Celtic support was slightly lower in the 80s than it is now but it’s completely apparent how both ripped the arse out of attendance figures then. both dodging tax regularly
  9. Campbell and bowman worked hard and did well yesterday and I appreciate the game may have been gone by half time but the game only came to life for me was when Bigi came on. I thought he was excellent and controlled the midfield. He’s a talented wee guy who probably hasn’t had enough chances this year.

    Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

    Don’t care who’s round about me to be honest, I have a ticket and I’m there to watch Motherwell in a Scottish cup final for only the 3rd time in my lifetime. I’m going to enjoy it and not sit and sniff out Celtic fans like some sort of rabid lunatic

    Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

    For me any defeat for them is good, apart from the hearts game (can’t include sevco as that performance from them was pub team standard)they’ve stuttered in their final half dozen games. They have done since the invincible tag was removed. If you get a win or defeat the game before a final, there must be a psychological impact? we’re winning this!!

    Cup Final Strip

    Apparently the kits are designed And they hope to be in the shop for cup final week? dont think it’s an easy thing to organise tho. if the new strips are ready I think it’d be crazy not to wear them in the final? If we win (which we will) in that new strip imagine the clamber of folk wanting to buy it over summer!! club shop jackpot

    Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

    They really are a pathetic bunch. Long may that continue. I don’t even think they have it in them to snap a few bodies!! love seeing either of them take a hiding. Always quite satisfying. my worst nightmare is us not turning up in the final and doing a sevco. I don’t think we have a manager or players Who cave like this tho.

    Another comical display by sevco. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing for us. Hopefully Celtic can hit a bit of a lull now after thumping that mob in another training game. lets just hope sevco lose the plot and now take out a few bodies. brown, rogic and Forrest please.
