Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

Took opportunity to go to Wembley on Sunday.

ZFA was very tidy and played game within his limits. Fylde fans certainly rate him.

Griffiths was unused sub.

Clay. Got to admit I am a wee bit biased as I I felt he did ok for us without pulling up any trees. Watching him in this match and an earlier game this season at Hartlepool [ yup , I do need to get out more!] I can fully understand why he was voted player of the season by O`s fans. I felt he was the main creative force in the O`s team showing a greater level of freedom and confidence than he displayed for us.

On a final point the Fylde fans must be best mannered fans I have ever encountered. Even when under the cosh I never hear heard one swear word or a profanity. The most animated comment was to describe a referee decision as " Rubbish". It will never catch on you know!

ZFA has been very consistent since arriving at Mill Farm, been played more defensively this year. Due to the early injury played on the left of the back three but much better as left back or wing back. A much better player than when he left us. 

I expect Griffiths to become first choice as current goalie Jay Lynch is out of contract and has quite a few clubs after him.

I have been impressed with Clay when I have seen him this season.

The Fylde fanbase is a curious thing. With so many local teams (Blackpool, Preston and Fleetwood all within ten miles) they seem to attract the older generation, the much younger generation and family groups. Swearing does exist but is nowhere near the grand scale we get at Fir Park and other Scottish grounds.

Bigrimani released by Hibs.  Did he make any appearances for then?

According to Wikipedia, he made 1 appearance as a 54th minute sub.

Just seen that Tom Hateley won the league in Poland with Piast Gliwice by beating Lech Poznan on the final day.

Much better than getting relegated with Dundee.

 

 

He’s still trying to tell people he’s a midfielder. :lol:

Harry Hood, who I didn’t realise played with us dies aged 74. 

Mostly thought of as being a Celtic player but built a huge business across Lanarkshire too.

Honestly you really would be better just forgetting about Motherwell and supporting Celtic. I can’t remember you ever having anything positive to say about the club, you seem to knock everyone from those running the club, the management, to the players, and every poster on here you disagree with. I am actually allowed to have an opinion without you coming back with one of your oh so witty put downs. Even when we get to two cup finals it’s not enough for you.  I like to see positives about the club, and yes there are many, you just seem to take enjoyment from putting everything about it down.

Sad news. I remember being very pleased when he signed for us as I adalways thought he was decent for Celtic. Unfortunately, bythat stage of his playing career, his best days were behind him and he didn’t really do much for us. Still, RIP and my thoughts are with his family and friends.

They did buy him for £12 million - they, and he, were just unlucky with the injuries as he did well at his other clubs.

Crazy money of course, but is the norm for English football. I saw a graphic at the weekend comparing the value of the Championship play-off versus winning the various US sports titles. The NBA title was worth something like $3 million. The Superbowl was about $6 million. Baseball was the most with the World Series being worth around $30 million. Winning the Championship play-off was worth around $285 million.

Mental.

I see Hastie has already started to get himself noticed by the media, not for his football but alleged drunken comments " that he is at Ibrox to stop 10 in a row",  

Jake Hastie taunts Celtic as Rangers new boy filmed declaring he'll stop 10-in-a-row

Hardly seems like the most controversial thing for a Rangers player to say, to be honest. If he'd said he was there to help Celtic win 10-in-a-row, that might be a story.

Surely you'd be wanting to stop 9 in a row?  Or is he just conceding that title already?
