They surely made a boatload of cash this year from reaching Europa league semi final 

If EPL clubs were run like normal businesses, they should.

However, the strategy of most EPL clubs seems to be that if your revenue increases by 30% you need to increase your spending by 45%.

Hope Robbo  signs Aaron Chapman next for his experience and wealth of football abilities in goal.

On Gallagher he was a disgrace when we were on our knees,didn't give a fuk that season couldn't wait to get  his move so nothing gave me greater pleasure than to see his move to Aberdeen fail and I hope he has another mare at St Mirren.

Gallagher was great for us in his first season but a disinterested disgrace in his second. It’s some fall from grace for him from being involved in the Scotland squad to failing at Aberdeen and joining St.Mirren as part of Robinson’s job for the ex Well boys signing policy.

Sadly money is the king in football…… in a short career where some very untalented players get far more of a wage than deserved persons who are saving life’s etc etc…but a tremendous fall from grace

Big Dec will have probably got a payment from the Dons to terminate his contract and a cracking deal in Paisley……..and there’s young Jake …..financially secure for the rest of his life on the back of a 3 month purple patch at FP

 

Big Dec can also go back to The Parkville Panthers baseball team

Young Jake has finally left Ibrox having never made a single appearance for Rangers, he's signed for Hartlepool, even in league 2 he's probably still on a decent wage, he's had 8 clubs in 6 years and scored a total of 12 goals in total, its good work if you can get it.

Donnelly linked with killie. I'm surprised, as he seemed a perfect for for the other stripey team.

Interesting to see Gallagher linking up with Robinson and a bunch of his old 'well teammates again. Maybe it will all work out fine and Robbo will find his mojo again, or maybe there will be a fair amount of banter.

I think Robbo's mojo was to throw a lot of shite at the wall and see what stuck.
 

+ a speedy wide man

His save against Larsson for us at Parkhead in 1999 was world class. RIP Goalie 

That was a ridiculous save that he had no right to make. His reflexes were absolutely astounding.

For all he was past his best by the time he came to FP he still managed some incredible performances in our jersey and even managed to secure a loan move to Man Utd in 2001 on the back of it.

6:20 for those who haven't seen or would like to again. Outstanding save. RIP Goalie.

Albeit a pretty farcical one, in retrospect.

RIP Andy , we have been blessed with great goalies down the years and along with Andy there has been Sieb, John Ruddy, Darren Randolph, Ally Maxwell and Liam Kelly at present ain’t too bad either

Got great memories of Andy, loved watching the Well at this time even though we could blow hot and cold at times, remember the cup tie against Hearts which was Andy’s debut, Fir Park was bouncing that night with at least 10,000 or so

The save from Larsson was brilliant, also remember a 1-0 victory the season after with 10 men which Goram had a great game

And of course a 2-0 victory against the Rangers last game of the season that almost had us in Europe and this game is almost forgotten about,  the story about Andy being knocked back from the Fir Park club one night for not having a membership despite being club captain at the time will be remembered also
