No worries , like it always does life goes on after our favourites leave. David Turnbull has acted perfectly and as a club we owe him an awful lot cause he secures us financially for a season or two.  Id guess every Motherwell fans knows that and will act appropriately. Compare him to Hastie and its a world of a difference.

It would be harder to take if we were playing well and winning games. We aren't so hopefully the money can get us a couple of goal scorers.

Turnbull won't develop in this team so from his POV the transfer probably can't come soon enough.

If Turnbull is indeed sold this week, it is imperative we also sack Foyle & Robinson asap. The last thing we need is to be spunking any addition to the playing budget on yet more shite that can "play across the front three"

If he goes it may be worth investing some of the fee on a forward with a decent goal scoring record if the right player is available. It’s not going to take massive changes to turn things around in my view. If possible I would also probably look at sending Hastie  back to Rangers if that frees up a bit of wages and see if we can get Seedorf/Hylton loaned out. On top of that the system needs looking at.

Remember we need to pay up Robinsons new contract we gave him that was another fuck up should have been sacked ages ago

If anybody knows a reliable goalscorer within our budget, I'm sure they could earn themselves a tasty finders fee. Anyone who complained about Porter, Higdon, Sutton etc. shortly after they arrived need not apply.

If he is away this week, is there any harm in asking for Griffiths on loan for the year + the £3 million that’s been mentioned, and the 20% sell on, or is that just being greedy??

It’s hard to imagine that we won’t strengthen the team somehow if we bring in the expected amount for Turnbull.  However, offloading players, as much as folk may dislike them, just doesn’t happen that easily.

No it’s a tough ask, but we are already overloaded up front.

I'm looking forward to the 'well fans running buses to the piggery to cheer on DT, just like they did when Moult left for PNE...

...for what it's worth, I hope he has a shite time at the stigs...

He has a great goalscoring record and at moment we have nowt up front.  It wont happen but anything that would improve our team has to be considered

If David Turnbull is still a Motherwell player on Thursday then he should play against Glentoran. Winning that game and securing the extra cash that would come from making the next round has to be our priority.

As for how the club acts in order to counter the current apathy in our support, how about showing a little backbone and putting the interests of our club first? Rather than bending over backwards to accommodate the best interests of a competitor who will no doubt be making a bid which, in the current market, is unlikely to be close to his real value.

We will bend over and accept what Celtic tell us and be grateful. We always do when it comes to that scummy shower.

What, like we did last time they tried to sign him?

As much as I want to win the game, we can’t risk him getting injured and flushing away the money again. If he’s off to Celtic then someone else should take his place.

Because he’s an upgrade on any of the strikers that we have at the moment; I agree he’s a total bam but if he can take the chances that we’ve been creating, he’ll do for me.

If we get a good deal for Turnbull then fair do's and we move on. My worry is I dont trust robbo/foyle with transfer kitty. And yes most of you wont be surprised but I would like to see a good amount invested in the youth academy...COYW

 Hes not likely to see any of it it might fund another wage but anyone we bring in won't cost £300,000 never mind £3 million..

Suspect its Nothing to do with him getting injured and more to do with Celtic having him available for the europa league when they inevitably get dumped out of the champions league.

No matter when and where David Turnbull goes, I will thank him for his service and move on. The boy deserves to forward his career and if his choice is Parkhead then fair does to him. I have spoken to him during his rehab and found him to be a level headed determined lad, with the right attitude to progress. He has done the decent thing by the club signing the extension and they did the decent thing by his rehab. In all honestly good luck David wherever you go and I look forward to se you progressing again and running the midfield on the International stage.
