I would imagine that television might have had something to do with scheduling. If not, why the early kick off? 3pm Saturday afternoon, football time!

There is no other football this weekend until the FA Cup Final at 5pm. Surely they could relaxed the blackout period for this round of fixtures?

There are two Scottish play-off final games at 3pm and one play-off final game at 4:05pm on Saturday. So they are happy enough to clash with the FA Cup Final. 

If nothing else, there is no reason they couldn't play all the games at 3pm on Sunday. Pretty standard for the last day of the season to have all the games kick off a the same time on the same day.

Why's that interesting? It's a game that literally means nothing. We can't finish any higher or lower.

Any so called Motherwell supporter who doesn't want Motherwell to win every game is a weirdo and needs to find a new hobby like doing jigsaws but not bothering if they complete them or racing pigeons but not bothering of the birds show up. The whole point of the game is to win!

It's our team vs another team - that's all the meaning you need.

Even if we cant finish any higher I will still be hoping for the 3 points especially which a larger than normal crowd expected.   History shows when we get a larger than normal crowd in we usually fail to show up in a lot of these games and it wont encourage people to come back. 

An earlier post mentioned a 6-2 win with Turnbull getting a hat trick.  The game when Faddy scored a hat trick last game of the season in a meaningless game against Livingston was one that I will always remember.    We kicked on from there the following season by finishing top 6 so hopefully the same outcome.

I don't think there's anyone who "doesn't want Motherwell to win" this game, or any other game, but there's probably a few who don't see the result as being all that important. 

I'm now of the opinion that some fans had even when 7th was still possible, and think we should be looking to give the guys who've been here for a while and are leaving the chance to say goodbye, as well as giving the kids some more game time.

Do I "want" us to win? Of course. Am I going to be bothered if we don't? Not really.

Well I suppose it’s another early rise for the last game of the season although that may depend on how Friday night goes.

Good luck to him. Maurice Ross seemed to think that he was good enough to make the first team.

In his pre-match Robinson said he'd be in the squad and "might" get a game - but I'm guessing that means he'll make an appearance.

Disappointing line up to be honest.

Aye. Just the 3 goals in the first 25 mins. 

Gutted.

Time to sub Turnbull, break the news in the post match presser about his questionable attitude and serious injury he picked up today, then lock him up in an office in the main stand until Sept 1st

Not sure there will be anymore goals. I started watching at 3-0 so blame me if that’s the final score   

You didn't tune in just before the penalties, by any chance?

FT 3-2. Results elsewhere mean Accies are safe, and St Mirren face Dundee Utd in the playoffs.

I would have liked Maguire or Livingstone to get a start. 

Was it a good game on your laptop?

Maguire is playing in the play off final versus raith for Queen of the South is he not?

Livingston were probably the better team when we went 2-0 up.  Poor defensively again with Dunne again not covering himself in glory and Livingston actually had more chances than we had up to that point.   Great wee 'off the training ground' style goal though.

Livingston then went into holiday mode and it looked like we were going to give them a drubbing until HT came and we went into holiday mode.

Bit gutted Turnbull didn't get his hat trick.  Donnelly playing the Gorrin role and not sure it quite worked out.  Few misplaced passes and didn't seem to really get on the ball very often, it was only one match though.

Will be interesting to see the second Livvie goal on TV as it looked miles offside to me.
