Big Dec

Recommended Posts

Credit to Clarke for being loyal to the guys that got him into this position and credit to those guys for digging deep to produce this performance.

Dec was immense.

Will be astounded if Gallagher is a Motherwell player come the end of January after that tonight. The big man was fucking immense.

I hear Liverpool are on the lookout for a centre half

Gallagher gets my Motm over the course of the game..... outstanding and O’Donnell would be my third only behind Gallagher and Christie....... brilliant !!! 

I almost agree with you... Gallagher was great but I’d have had Dykes above O’Donnell

Disagree. Dykes HAS to be MOTM, he absolutely bullied that Serbian defence and won everything, stunning performance from him

Christie would be a close second, great goal and run himself into the ground. Dec would be third as he was absolutely immense and pocketed Mitrovic, and then Id have had  O'Donnell & Marshall. But nice "problem" to have as that was the best Scotland performance overall Ive seen in Years!

Very proud of O'Donnell & Gallagher, just a pity it puts them a bit further out of our league come the summer

Completely agree re Dykes. He is head and shoulders above McBurnie, who did nothing but jog about and fall over when he came on.

I agree. Huge performances all round but I thought Jack and McGregor were unbelievable. Dykes outstanding, as was Dec.

I liked dykes at livi but thought he wasn't good enough for international football,how wrong was i,he's been a great find for the national team,tonight he was different class,thankfully he chose us over australia or we would have to put up with that chancer mcburnie more than we already do.

Who was the last Well player to play for Scotland at a major tournament?

Might be wrong, but I don't think that player exists?

Davie Cooper was a Motherwell player when he played in one of the qualifiers for the 1990 World Cup, but he didn't make the squad for the finals.

How good was big dec there,how could mitrovic think he was going to score that penalty when he was still in the big man's back pocket.

I said when he up to take his pen that Mitrovic wouldn't be confident after Big Dec bossing him.

Marshall played it perfectly standing up for as long as possible and making him choose a side.

It's always been the case that some players step up a gear in the international team and others never seem to reproduce even their club form.

Gallagher started strongly in his international career and seems to have got better every game.

Shout out to O'Donnell too who again showed why you want a right footed player in his position.

And what a great advert for the club. Sign for Motherwell, get a regular international starting slot, qualify for Finals.

SOD has played it brilliantly, signed for us to maintain his place in the Scotland squad, now he has a bit of a rep for an English team looking in January but does he stick or twist and risk his place in the finals?

My recollection is that Cooper would have been in the squad but got injured in the run up

That's right.  He was in Italy with some of the squad on an advance party and I have recollections of him and those who travelled being introduced to what would have been either the Sampdoria or Genoa crowd and was part of the warm ups.  He featured in a friendly against Egypt but was either injured in that or in training and sadly didn't make the squad.

We had Michael McGlinchey with us who was part of the New Zealand squad in South Africa I think it was, but he was only loan and wouldn't technically be a Motherwell player.

If Turnbull had stayed and was back to his 18/19 season best, he would be going to the Euros.  
Will Lennon give him the opportunity?

Does Campbell have enough time to impress for the squad?

I reckon odonnell will sign new deal in January and dec will stay put.  They have chance of a lifetime and almost guaranteed place in squad for finals. If they move in January they are not guaranteed game time. More money financially if they move but risk missing out on major finals.  I know which I would choose
