Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

Think players have started leaving decent sized South American teams to go to the MLS. Whether this says more about the decline of South American football, I don’t know. Most of the best players are in Europe as teenagers now.

Its no longer just a retirement home for star players though.

Cadden isn’t going to play in La liga or Serie A. So MLS is a great opportunity. No language barrier, good lifestyle etc....

The packages being offered in the MLS, with clubs offering houses and schooling for player's children, along with the potential in endorsements from the likes of Nike, means the MLS is hoovering up talent in Mexico.

I think a lot of Central and South American players see the MLS as a shop window to Europe. Very few Europeans make the move there from a career progression point of view I’d suspect. That’s not to say the change in lifestyle/culture/pay is not reason enough to make the move..

Danny Johnston opens the scoring for Dundee. 

I think he's going to have a decent season in that league. He offers exactly what Dundee have been lacking the last season or two.

He should have had two apparently. I agree I think he will flourish in that league an I would expect him to reach double figures by the end of the season.

Did we get a sell on clause added when he moved :D

He had a decent long range shot tipped over the bar. Then missed an absolute sitter from about 6 yards.

The goal he scored was well taken,  but keeper made a pigs ear of saving it and let it sneak in at his near post.

Consistency is what separates the top strikers from the average ones. I think the Championship will be good for him as he will get regular games and hopefully it will sharpen him up. Consequently, more of the ‘sitters’ will end up in the back of the net.

And keeping to the former players theme, he's playing against CFR Cluj - who crocked Brian McLean in the pre-season "friendly".

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I just wanted to say that the McGrillen family deserve the greatest respect for what they are doing to mark the tenth anniversary of the untimely and tragic passing of Paul. I can only wonder at the strength required to make such a video. Best wishes to them and hopefully it all helps just a little.

BBC Gossip saying Elliott Frear now going to Dundee Utd.

The way Utd are splashing out the cash to buy promotion, he might even get more money there.

More than likely a better basic than we had him on here. I hear Shankland is on huge amounts at Utd.

Of course not. 

Unless the new owner is happy to lose a few million to pursue a hobby - then it will work.

No place on the bench for either Hastie or Main tonight. 

Infact Stevie May has actually got on the bench instead of Curtis..... oh dear. 

Hastie wasn’t named in the 20 odd man pool for this round

I'd be amazed if Hastie is anything but a bit-part player at this point in his Ibrox career. He'll be crossing his fingers the Kent deal is definitely off.

Rangers rarely play guys his age, so his expectation must be a loan or a spell in the development squad.

Ben Hall linked with a move to Partick Thistle having been released from Brighton

Wouldn’t be the worst idea for us to take a look at him.

We have three first team centre backs in Gallagher, Dunne and Hartley and we have Devine and although he's being used in midfield, Maguire to step in. No need to sign Hall, waste of funds.
