Former Motherwell Fc Players Thread

Recommended Posts

He has said he's a Rangers supporter according to the BBC website so I can see although I assume he's taken a fair cut in wages unless they're paying silly money, which I wouldn't rule out. Of course he may be willing to accept less money to be nearer to family.

He must be giving them the old "Boyhood Heroes" discount. I'd still be insisting on cash up front if I was Brighton (or Murphy) right enough.

Jamie Murphy is one of the good guys. Worked his socks off whilst at FP and always put in a shift.

 

Earned a big move without instigating one and spoke highly of our club when he left.

 

Best wishes to him and I'd like to think he will get a good reception when he returns to play us.

Basically agree with that. I wont acknowledge him in a Rangers shirt.

Stevie Hammell now added to this thread, thats such a strange thing to type.

 

Hes retiring at the end of the month to take on Scott Leitchs old job as Academy Director, wish him all the best.

Glad he is retiring cause feels bad criticising a legend but not doing it in the Park hope he gets to come out before a game a la moult since u dont get to do that for players very often!

Quite sad to hear Hammell retiring.

 

Genuinely think he doesn't get the plaudits he deserves. An absolutely stellar servant to the club during some of our most successful periods in recent times and one of my favourite players during my time. A solid pro, that has shown fantastic loyalty to our little club.

Best of luck with the new gig - think its something he will really excel in.

Good move for all concerned I think.

 

Ex players coaching the youngsters helps maintain our identity as a club, and I'm sure guys like Crags and Hammell won't be slow to point out what it means to be a a 'Well player.

Based on what?

 

The fact he has his pro license, he came through the academy himself, has been with the club for the best part of 20years, has been involved with coaching the clubs youth teams for the past 5 years and has often been singled out by teammates and younger players for helping them. Not to mention the guy is the definition of professionalism.

 

Plus, clearly unlike yourself, I tend to be positive about change at our club.

Indeed, you never know which players will make the transition well. But it sounds like it's something he's been keen to do for quite a while, so at least he has that going for him. (Cf. Faddy, the most unlikely assistant manager the club will likely have for a while.)

All the best to Hammy in his new role. He has been a true legend at the club. Hopefully he brings the next legends through.

Do the boys have coachng qualifications? Is familiarity with the club and the respect from everyone who works there not a plus when hiring someone? Are promotions not a thing in other lines of work?

It's sad that Stevie's retiring but it's probably the right move. He was outstanding against Aberdeen in the cup so he definitely contributed at least that this season. None of us will ever see another player make 500+ appearances for the club, he is an all time great.

 

21 year old Cadden is our longest serving player now.

It's sad that Stevie's retiring but it's probably the right move. He was outstanding against Aberdeen in the cup so he definitely contributed at least that this season. None of us will ever see another player make 600+ appearances for the club, he is an all time great.

Very, very well said. It's bizarre to think how high the percentage of Motherwell fans will be, who have never known us to have a long-term regular left-back that wasn't Stevie Hammell. Unbelievable service and the best first touch i've ever seen.

Really sad to see him retire but its no great surprise.

 

One of the most technically gifted players we have produced and an utterly fantastic servant to the club. Such a shame his last few years were dogged by injury after being one of the first names on the team sheet week in week out for over a decade.

 

Wish him all the best in his new role, delighted he is staying with the club. Hopefully he can have better luck than his predecessors in identifying a Stevie Hammell replacement.

Me too, was just being devils advocate (or a dick?) given some criticism of others who have been promoted within the club.

Think Hammell is the final of the Motherwell players I ever saw play in the flesh. I've now got no personal attachment to any of the squad, so it's definitely the end of an Era for me. Good luck to The Hamster!!

Fair do's.

 

Hammell has always struck me as the one from the class of 2002 that would be best suited to coaching/management.
