Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

Gillespie confirmed at Newcastle on a 3 year deal, fair play to him. No doubt getting his motherwell wage ten times over on that contract. You have to wonder how much football he is actually going to play in those 3 years though, could genuinely not play a single senior game in that time which at 28 would  be a massive step back coming into his prime years so to speak. 

Good on him but.

If you're Gillespie and at 28, probably not made much money in football, it's an absolutely life changing deal for him...hes got the luck that unfortunately Carson didnt

Mark Gillespie reported to have signed for Newcastle, all the best to him. 

He deserves a big move, 3 year deal apparently and no doubt a life changing wage every week, I hope he gets a chance in the premiership. Best of luck to him.

Fairplay to Gillespie. Great move for him. Really hope he can nail down a first team place. He seems like a good guy and it would be another feather in our cap when trying to attract aspiring talent.

It's a great move for him, but he'll be doing well to make himself second choice keeper there, let alone first.

Rumours going around that Kipre is away to West Ham.

Potential windfall for us if that's the case

Report says they hope to get him on the cheap for £1m which would be a steal and bad news for us. 

Any administrator at Wigan wouldn't be doing their job if they let assets go on the cheap and £1m for a young  player with 2 years experience in the English Championship is cheap...

Absolutely.  Going back to our spell in Administration, big Terry had the final say about who was transferred and who wasn't from a football perspective. However the administrators decided what fee was acceptable for any leavers.  Dundee United offered "to help us out" by tabling an offer for Stuart Elliot which was about 10% of the fee we eventually received from Hull City. United were told where to go in no uncertain terms. Kipre is worth more than £1m.

He’s probably worth three to four times that.

If anything Mark Gillespie proves you can come to a club like ours playing well and get a move to a bigger club easy!It really does put us and in a good place to attract really good players.

Dom Thomas signs for Dunfermline, after mutually agreeing compensation with Killie...... what was the sell on clause?

Remember the outrage on here when we allowed  Dom Thomas to leave and signed Cedric Kipre (even though they played different positions and are a million stratosphere’s away in terms of footballing ability)

I thought Cadden was back at Oxford but a quick Google shows he's still with Columbus. Made his first appearance back since lockdown as a 2nd half sub for them yesterday.

 

He'll likely never play for Oxford again.

Karma for who? It's Columbus that owe us money and they have the player.

Not again Weeyin.....

Oxford offered a significant transfer fee to Columbus to keep Cadden.  Reportedly much more than they would have had to pay us for his development fee. All because they thought they could be smart arses and avoid paying us. 

Columbus tell them to do one and now they stay in League One....Karma. 

I know we did it with one or two players from down south. But that is different. We are Motherwell. All that counts
