We cant string three passes together 

Was going to say exactly the same thing. Every team we play, and that includes the lower division opponents in the early games in the LC) have been able to pass the ball between their own players and move forward. We just can't...

Slattery is the only midfielder who can play a searching pass. Would really like to see him pushed up the park and have someone else play in the holding role.

White screen sometimes just means your subscription has run out. Presume it hasn’t in your case?

Lacking fluency in our passing, it's like an U14 game where it's 100 mile an hour and nobody can find a pass.

We tend to pass into a space never to a player, not sure what coaching book that's from but were bloody good at it

Woolery and Shields are both brutal.

Think Shields deserves some leeway not had much game time

Fuck sake Motherwell. Every fucking time we get the ball in space in the midfield area,  Grimmy runs forward 10 feet then stops and plays a shit misplaced pass back the way.  We are really really pish at anything that involves the ball.

Alexander persists with a formation that doesn't work and wastes the talents of the decent players we do have by playing them out of place and shoehorning players into positions beyond their capabilities. That was a pile of absolute shite and we're lucky not to be behind.

I thought season ticket holders could access Motherwell TV free of charge. Is that not the case? 

Yes, you’re right… I’m an overseas subscriber so I’d forgotten that ;)

This is on a par with some of the absolute tripe we were served up last year. Disinterested, lobbing the ball and the hapless passing the ball backward. An absolute rollicking needed at half time.

 

Absolutely no evidence of any fight or grit in this first half.

One of the most pathetic performances I have ever seen from a Motherwell team.  If our front three put as much effort into looking for goals as they do looking for free kicks we would be out of sight by now. Embarrassing !

We can't even blame the conditions for that first half,we have been absolutely hopeless.

I completely agree, we seem to have so little composure on the ball. When we pick the ball up in midfield it's such a rush to go FORWARD that if we just slowed it down a little and played a sideways pass or two it'd allow the front three (who have tucked in) to get forward and actually give us an option.

 

Grimshaw has been murder, and that first half performance from Shields is a perfect example of why the First Division isn't an absolute goldmine for talent like people seem to think.

 

O'Hara on for Grimshaw and KVV on for Shields at half time would be ideal, instead we won't see that, we'll go 1-0 down after 60 minutes and make changes around 80 minutes and scrape a draw if we're lucky.

 

It's so frustrating.

Another shocking display so far where we offer nothing. Practically a 7 man defence for the whole of the first half. 25yards from midfield to front line. No hope of winna second ball or joining the forwards if they manage to hold it. Only Watt showing anything in the front line. Something has to change at half time or our losing streak will continue.
