Lasley.

Recommended Posts

Interesting what people thought of Keith`s very subdued body language at the end of the game.

 

Got me and others thinking was this him retiring or has he been told he is not being kept on. Another possibility was that he was simply exhausted after his efforts in the game or was it the cumulative effects of the pressure of the last few weeks.

 

Thoughts?

I think thats the last we will see of Lasley in Claret and Amber. I would be very surprised if he doesnt announce his retirement. He has been a magnificent servant to the club but every player knows when its time and it was written all over his face tonight.

He'll no doubt continue in a coaching capacity, assuming a better job doesn't come up.

At my end of the East he was emotional

 

It's an unusual spot to be in walking round behind all your team mates while also watching your three small kids.

Like most others on here I'm sure that was his last game at FP in C&A but I think he still has something to offer and could get signed by a championship team. Chased everything tonight and never stopped.

I stayed to the end of the walk round waiting for him to finish talking to the disabled fans to applaud him off the park.

I would think he and Hammell won't play next season but expect the club to find roles for them in some capacity.

Irrespective of any fan's individual opinion of Lasley's abilities, it's hard to argue that he's not been a fantastic servant.

 

He goes with nothing but my respect and thanks...

Six month contract to ease him into his pension and to provide cover in the event of this year's midfield signings being as good as last year's.

Mchugh was a pretty good signing was he not? No more playing contracts for Keith - it would be a travesty, or a sacking offence, if he was signed again next season given we have mchugh and Campbell to play that very same position.

 

We can't keep offering renewed contracts to legends well and truly past their sell by date.

He's our captain and relieved he was our captain that remained in the top league. Gentleman, 'baller and gorgeous. Thanks Keith. Coaching career is coming.

Would another season be the worst thing? Not as a first choice obviously but I'd prefer him as a backup than Clay or Lucas. Though my judgment may admittedly be clouded as I absolutely love Keith Lasley.

If that's the final time, I wish him all the luck and success in the world. A great servant and a legend but most importantly of all a real gent of a guy

What I saw was a guy who grew up on the other side of the town, would have had a soft spot St Mirren or one of the OF.

 

However has spent the vast majority of his professional career here, has been a constant through many upheavals (and allegedly sowed some discontent at times too). He became one of us.

 

In an age where many see the vast majority of footballers as mercenaries, allegiance only for whoever is paying them in that instant, then I think its safe to say Keith breaks that mould, if you cut him he is as C&A as anyone else in the East Stand, there was a definite lump in the throat as he turned away.

Love the man, and I'm of an age where I've seen far more Lasley midfields than anything else, but the bell has rung and his time has come.

 

Hail the man but it's done.

1 year pay as you play

 

Not for me, the wages could be better spent on somebody else, he is done constantly chasing the game and diving in, as was seen last night for his booking. He has been a fantastic player for the club over the years but his time has come.

Thought he had a good game last night, but like others would be reluctant to see another playing deal handed out to him. Would be entirely on sentiment for me, and we can't afford that luxury in the required upcoming clear out.

 

An absolute stalwart and great servant to the club, but think last night was indeed his last run out at Fir Park, and he knew it hense the emotion. Our most successful captain on the past 30 years.

 

Thanks for it all Keef!

I've never been his biggest fan, a very limited footballer in my opinion, but he was excellent last night...I had a Canadian relative with me last night at his 1st Motherwell game who pretty much summed him up for me, 'he doesnt look like he has much ability, but he gives it everything'.

 

Sentimentality shouldn't come into our thinking this year, whether that be on or off the park.

A marvellous servant and captain. His time is up now unfortunately.

From a professional point of view he has been superb,keeping himself in good shape and always acting like a captain,but in a footballing sense, his time has come! Infact being truthful his time came and passed 2 years ago and he has been living on sentimentality since.

 

He is 1 of the few guys Id be happy with giving a coaching job to due to his attitude and passion for the club but his playing days at MFC are over.
