Boyd is a feckin obnoxious tosser, deserves all he gets...

I’ve never hated an ex player and a club captain so much than Tom Boyd. If I had my way he would never be allowed back into Fir Park ever again. That may sound harsh, but it’s how I feel.

I doubt they've ever outright accused a referee of cheating us because we're Motherwell. 

Cheating us because the other team is Celtic, definitely been said.

Not wrong then!

Definitely not. I think when the commentary was audio only a few of the players felt a little more free to express opinions. Hartley in particular. 

Seem to be a little more subdued on the video streams.

Yes, he seems to go out of his way to make negative comments about MFC and to play to the worst instincts of Sellick fans.

And I doubt he would have developed into the player he became if he hadn't played alongside David Cooper: he could bomb up the left wing and know that DC could almost always find him with a pass.

Not that I condone any sort of secterianism but goin by the stories you hear of the way Cooper spoke about Celtic it must have killed Boyd to listen to him.

I never heard that about Cooper - but even if it wasn't true, I'm sure guys like Tommy McLean, Tam Forsyth (and maybe Iain Ferguson and Craig Patterson) weren't shy about reminding him of their Old Firm credentials.

From today's BBC gossip

Quote

Manager Robbie Neilson hopes Dundee United can do some wheeling and dealing to pave the way for former Motherwell winger Elliott Frear to join up at Tannadice. (Daily Express, print edition)

Got a copy of Terry Butcher's book years ago when he was our manager.  Sure he mentions in it something about wearing green one day and Davie Cooper threatening to rip it off him, something like that anyway.

Seem to remember around the time of its release a lot of their followers were calling Butcher for everything about something else he was meant to have said about Davie.

I think an element of the Rangers support have taken issue with Butcher as he said in his autobiography and has said in his interviews since that he is ashamed/embarrassed at getting sucked into the sectarianism when he was at Ibrox.

I’d applaud him for it.

Although he played for Rangers, I thought Paterson was very much a Hibs man. Don't know about Ferguson but you're probably spot on with McLean and Forsyth although wee Tommy certainly had no problem buying and playing Celtic-leaning players.

Brian Mclean, Nicky Cadden , Boab McHugh starting with JohnSutton  likely to come on from the bench for Morton as they are two down at HT.

Steven Saunders absolutely bossing it for Thistle , with Shea Gordon on their bench.

Every one of these Friday night matches has been great.

Then you go to the Motherwell game on a Saturday....

On the BBC website that Moult is out for the season :(

Gutted for Moulty, he has indeed done his cruciate,   it's all turned to shit since he left.  A brilliant guy and he had a chance to push on this season for a run in the team under that mutant Neil.  Maybe get to see him back in C& A one day...

I noticed Paul Lawson on the bench for Formartine today, didn't know he was still playing.

think he went up there a year or two ago, pretty sure at the time he said he was offered a career out his move too (I took that as something in the oil industry or something, dunno why)
