Motherwell One Liners

Recommended Posts

Half-time at FP - Motherwell 0 V Dunfermline 2 and we are in deep doodoo in this relegation battle. End of game Motherwell 3 V Dunfermline 2 - a Stevie Cowan hat-trick. The cry around FP - "He's fat, he's round he's worth a million pounds" Priceless.

Seem to remember Paul Smith scoring an overhead kick against someone.

May have made that up though.

Bruce Cleland scored an overhead kick at Clydebank I think (when we beat them 7 - 1 at Kilbowie).

'' You won't see many free kicks hit much harder than that'' Andy Gray (Iain Ferguson for Well v celtic semi 91). Poor grammar, but all the better for it!

86 I think. Was working a student job beside a Celtic supporter.

 

2 - 0 down without playing badly. Great comeback. Walker's goal set up by a cracking reverse pass from Martin (if my memory isn't playing tricks). Gahagan missed a great chance in extra time with a weak shot straight at the keeper. Softy hit the underside of the square bar with his pen. Round bar and it would probably have gone in.

 

EDIT: No idea why I wrote Martin! I was thinking Smith - but could be wrong.

 

EDIT EDIT: If you can bear it, a report is on here

Have to admit, I was close to tears leaving Hampden that night. Football verges on child cruelty at times!

 

Walker's shimmy was outrageous. Bonner just threw himself out the way to leave an open goal.

 

Edit: something very strange happened there with my attempt to quote!

Think that was the semi against rangers in the league cup.

Memory might be playing tricks on me but think the pass to Walker was from another midfield maestro, Brian Wright.

 

I do remember Walker and Smudger giving Celtic a torrid time at FP around the same time. Finished 1-1 but took an amazing fingertip save from Bonnar to stop us winning it.

That's the name I was struggling for. I knew it was a 'Brian'! It's terrible when you get old and start forgetting - another Senior Moment.

 

I remember the pass as clear as day, though, and the dummy. They used to say about Charlie Cooke "When Charlie sold you a dummy you had to pay to get back into the stadium" - and Walker's dummy was as good as that. Pity he turned into such an eejit on the telly because he was a great young player for us.

Main memory of Brian Wright was scoring a pen V Celtic at Hampden (same game that Softy hit the bar) and giving it ' the Higdon' to the smellic fans.

What was that Archie McPherson one? Think it was Joe Carson again he was describing when he said something like "STretches out that long left leg, although that's not to say his right leg is any shorter than his left, just that it looked that way at that point" :thumbup:

Not a commentators quote, but how about:-

Celtic semi-final in '91

 

Maxwell saved a skiter of a shot & Jock Brown came out with "that must have been like saving a bar of soap" & Andy Gray (I think) came out with some gash like "that was even more difficult than catching a bar of soap, cos it's round & bobbling all the way"

 

he was a slevering c*nt even back in they days............

Talking of Andy Gray I'm sure he refers to Rowan Alexander as Rowan Atkinson at least once during the commentary of our Scottish Cup Quarter Final with Morton that Sky or BSB or whatever they were at the time.

Must admit, I liked Andy Gray's commentary back then. And McCoist's co-commentary on the cup final was good too - he was that excited it was like one of us commentating ( almost!) .......in fact, didn't he coin the phrase '' as brave as a lion'' when Phil headed his goal?

Spoke with McCoist and Gray after the game. Gray said it was a "Grrrrreat game" and, as we proceeded to give McCoist pelters about Rangers not being there he said "I was on your side, lads".
