Get a fucking grip.

What’s your point? As you yourself acknowledge we were humiliated by our own mistake. And that happened with about 70% of the game still to go yet we barely looked like getting back into it.

I don’t see how tonight can be dressed up as anything other than a disaster.

My internet was buffering the game here in Saudi, for once I was glad, it saved me having to endure more absolute tosh, long season ahead unless we cast Alexander adrift now, and burrows doesn’t have the balls, a change is needed or we could seriously struggle this year

He thinks that’s acceptable. Nothing will change next week.

Yes.  He is fucking deluded

That's total delusion,he must be the only person watching who thought we were the better side,he's trying to deflect away from the fact that his team has put in yet another clueless performance.

Would they take Carol and Alexander as a swap

Morris was abysmal. 4 good chances completely fucked and dreadful set pieces. Shields missed an open goal from 6 yards. Tierney bottled a 1 on 1 again. Efford was a headless chicken again.

2 decent forwards or we are relegation fodder.

Very poor result and performance, has  the world ended, not at this point.

Utterly appalling performance, out fought out played by a honking second rate team, carrying on from last season, Alexander’s tactics are the worst, it looks like these guys don’t work on anything all week, this manager has to go or we are in serious trouble.

Carroll should have been off and Sligo get a PK. He clearly used his arm

Well it went as expected.

Fans can go on about Alexander or this or that player but here's the absolute truth here.

The team that's fifth in the League of Ireland came to Fir Park and not only deservedly beat us, they looked better than most of the teams we played last season.

As I've said for some time the overall standard of Scottish football and the Premiership is very low and no one should be surprised about what happened tonight.  Sligo would most likely beaten St Mirren, St Johnstone, Livingston, Hibs etc as well.

This probably won't be a popular opinion on here but the rest of us live off the Old Firm.  Without them our league set up would be on a par with the League of Ireland.  Maybe worse because they probably aren't completely deluded about the level they are playing at in Ireland.

You can sack the manager and bring in 22 new players but nothing changes until we tackle the fundamental failures that have plagued Scottish football for 30 years and are getting worse as every season passes.

If Robinson had overseen that performance and result you would have been (rightly) slaughtering him for it.

Does Burrows read these comments I wonder? 
Surely  he must see what we see, absolute clueless tactics, players n manager, absolute garbage performances, he has to act sooner rather than later, 3 or 4 wins since January isn’t enough to keep the Albion Rovers manager in post never mind an alleged SPL manager…

Well we will see if we’re doomed as some are already predicting and do early on every season. It’s never happened yet and I would not be surprised if we do ok again. I seem to say this every season and as with the always wise Ya Bezzer ( a poster some could learn a lot from) the bigger picture is not individual managers but the standard of Scottish football in general with no better example than the whole of last season with just about every team of the same low standard. I fully expect another season of poor football from not just Motherwell but many of the others on a similar level to us. If you honestly think it will get significantly better by changing manager again you are likely to be extremely disappointed.
