Yabba's Turd

Motherwell V St Johnstone Sat 7 May 15:00

Recommended Posts

No Lasley and no Hammell due to suspension.

 

A good time to see what the team is like with both missing like a few have suggested needs to happen next season.

be good to get a decent crowd

 

Club have reduced the price of a family ticket to the same as an adult ticket for this match

 

so for one normal adult PATG price, two kids can be taken in also

With £100k the difference between 4th and 5th, we shouldn't look to Saturday as a meaningless fixture.

 

I suspect Chalmers will play LB but I'd like to see Watt have a go.

Is Watt not a right back?

I'd imagine it'll be Chalmers at left back and probably Leitch or Gomis in place of Lasley rather than Campbell, possibly see him getting 15 mins at the end though. Similarly I'd think Laing will get another run out at right back.

 

Will be interesting to see if we stick with Ainsworth for this one given how ineffective he seemed to be on Saturday and the fact that Cadden seems to offer much more balance to the side.

He is but he's also been playing centre half for the 20s and I'm pretty sure he filled in at left back under Baraclough before we brought in the bold Tony Straker.

Pretty much my thoughts too. St Johnstone have a pretty pugnacious and abrasive midfield and so we'll want to mix it with them I'd have thought. Cadden is a bit naive defensively, but yes he does bring more balance and competitiveness to the side than Ainsworth.

Is there any other team, in your opinion, who isn't overly physical?

The fact we don't have an able replacement for Hammell is hopefully a prod towards our transfer dealings in the summer. Chalmers is woeful and the u20s have been playing without a natural left back for a long time.

 

Fairly confident Campbell will be above Leitch in the pecking order if we opt not to play Gomis.

 

Think we'll lose this actually. St Johnstone are rotten but seem to have the bit between their teeth.

I think Kennedy has been quite solid recently so would be looking for him to continue his run in the team.

Watt made his 1st team debut at LB. But yes, he is a CB or RB.

 

Chalmers has demonstrated this season he is lower league class

I would give McMillan, our LB from the U20s a go ahead Chalmers but I don't think McGhee will.

 

My pick for a team would be

 

 

Ripley

Kennedy Hall McManus McMillan

Cadden Leitch Pearson

Moult Skippy Johnson

Can I just check on whether the game is on Sat the 7th at 15:00 as title of the thread says or Sun 8th as I put in my phone when the fixtures were announced or the impossible Sat the 8th as the official site shows?

Trust steelmenonline to get it right ;)

 

SPFL agree with steelmenonline :popcorn: they have it listed as Saturday 7th at 3pm

I think we can win this one 2-0 to go back into 4th spot. :thumbup:

I hope the fans can stay off the pitch this time as Motherwell must surely be on their last warning. :mad:

There's certainly some fans I'd like to stay off the page!

If any fan comes on park in Saturday they should be banned as no true fan would do this with the amount of warnings club have given as we will be severely punished if they do in past years been a tradition and bit of fun but unfortunately some overstepped the mark last season and as were on a warning need to adhere to it and as fans we should all be doing our best to discourage anybody going on as only club will suffer

Will be surprised if there not at least one idiot to spoil it...

Any fan that goes onto the pitch could end up with the club getting a serious fine or other sanctions and that could be the difference in keeping/signing a certain player when you are dealing with budgets as finite as ours.
