Odds and Sods Motherwell Thread

Recommended Posts

Is there a place for a thread for the wee Motherwell bits and bobs you come across and maybe aren't worthy of a thread of their own?  Time will tell I suppose.

I'll start us of with a snippet from a feature on Andy Robertson on the BBC where John Rankin, one of his former team-mates mentions us in a fairly complimentary light.

Quote

"I remember Motherwell away in December 2014," he says. "It's a difficult place to go to at the best of times. We won 4-0 that day, but I remember looking at the score and [at that point] it was 3-0.

"Andy used to always bomb forward and I'd cover for him. I turned to him and said, 'Don't go anywhere. There's only eight minutes to go, I want you to sit in'. I once played in a game where we were 6-2 up at Fir Park and it finished 6-6. Motherwell never know when they are beaten.

I thought his perception of us as a team and Fir Park as a venue was quite interesting.

That performance from United is easily up there as one of the best from an away team at Fir Park.  A doing from the Hibs side with Brown, Thomson etc was equally impressive.

Kenny Dalglish giving us a good write up as a club in this article.

Nice to see some positive comments about how the club is operating and from a true Scottish football legend as well.

I almost agree, except in the printed column in the Sunday Post he refers to Turnbull as a "Life long Celtic fan"

:bad:

Not the first time I’ve read/heard this in recent weeks. Sheer ignorance.

But we all know the question most Celtic fans can't resist asking..... "Aye, but what team do you really support?"

Both Celtic and Rangers fans are just as bad as each other in that sense.

I have a friend who is a Rangers fan who thinks the old firm game is the biggest game in world football and everyone in Scotland is seriously interested in it.   The fans of those two hold their respective clubs in such high regard that they genuinely think the fans of all the other clubs secretly support them or the other side as well. 

As for Dalglish commenting on Turnbull being a Celtic fan he was no doubt advised by someone in the media that this was the case.

"I treat every game as a rivalry, that's the time of player I am. Coming up against Motherwell is a game I'm particularly looking forward to."

Accies new signing - via the BBC

I genuinely thought this was going along the lines of "Accies fought off rivals Motherwell to sign..." I'd be outraged :lol:
