    I feel like a pigeon eating chips reading the utter seeeth from Celtic fans to motherwell, Turnbull and his agent. Wonderful stuff. Good luck to the lad I hope the deal is dead and he can fulfil his potential out-with The poison of the west coast of Scotland. We’ll probably get more money for him and he will develop better playing at a higher standard away from the SPL.

    2019-20 Rebuild

    Good luck in sevco reserves jake I doubt we’ll get much cash off Scotland’s shame but we may get him back on loan at some point. As much as I really liked him when he came in, he brought a real energy to the team, I can’t help but think defenders started sussing him out as time went on and became a bit of a one trick pony? Just my opinion. anyway, he’s not the first young player to have his head turned by money and the allure of the bigot brothers and he’ll not be the last. cest la vie
  3. I can’t believe the clown was wearing a Rangers hat? He should be banned for life for that alone.
  4. 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.
  6. 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
  12. 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!!
