Replacing him in January like for like was always going to be a near impossible task. We should just have paid the guy what he was worth. If we can do it with the keeper we can do it for a guy who could offer us 20 goals in a season. That's criminal. 

I agree,getting in the right replacement for watt was always going to be tough in January but to strengthen a direct rival by giving them arguably our best player for a 100k was a massive gamble that is going to backfire on us.if we couldn't get a suitable replacement we should have kept him,we are the only losers in the watt deal.

Letting watt go was one thing,it was clear alexander wanted him gone but to not replace him was criminal,we are missing him big time,the 100k we got will be meaningless come the end of the season.

I never expected us to replace like for like but surely we should have had another striker lined up?

Nathan McGinley can't pass or cross the ball and we are rumoured to have signed him up until 2025.

Good god,surely not.

I’d settle for 10th in the league right now,  this team is up there with the worst I’ve ever seen in a Motherwell shirt…..and I’ve seen a few.

This is reminding me of that John Hughe's Hibs team (2010 was it?). Strong start to the season then an utter collapse from December onwards. 

It's all starting to get a bit sore. The reality is we will be sitting mid February having not won a league game since December and if I was sticking money on anyone for Saturday it sure as hell wouldn't be this lot. Only Dundee are worse than us over the course of the last six matches and our goal difference is the worst in the league. 

That said we are like a cat with nine lives. Everytime we make an a*** of it Hibs and Aberdeen seem to follow suit. 

Home form is decent, away form is poor.

We've had four out of six away and Celtic at home.

I'd hold off from panicking for the moment.

Spot on,you don't let your top scorer leave without having someone lined up to come in,we have had our fingers burnt here.

We are all over the place. I don’t think any of the players know what they are supposed to be doing. 

We're a shambles,the manager changing 3 and 4 players every game and formations like there going out of fashion is really hindering us.since the break we look like a group of players that have never set eyes on each other before.

This is so unbelievably painfully frustrating.

 

Hard to see where our next win comes from.

Crazy idea out of left field.

Couldn't we have used the cash we got for Watt to, I dunno, buy someone that's out of contract in the summer?

There has been an awful lack of basic football skills from us in the 2nd half.

An utterly dreadful 2nd half performance against a team that was there for the taking.

I like Alexander but we’re on a slippery slope now, we appear to have lost the plot since Watt moved on.
