  1. I thought we started fairly ok tbh. Created chances and hit the woodwork twice. Was cautiously optimistic at that point. After that it was awful. I can’t believe we have a team of professional players with no first touch. The decision making on making runs was also laughable. The forward line chose the option of running into a static defender than making space more times than I’d care to remember. Alexander can f**k off and take Goss and Slattery with him too. And that waste of space McGinley too for that matter.
  2. Couldn’t go today but agree overall the football is brutal to watch. I don’t king if a long pass is made but not punting and hoping for the best. I actually like the forwards - I think their work rate is pretty good IMO but the tactics make hard work of things chasing random long balls. Playing 433 is fine but you need full backs that know what their doing. going forward and defending and those types cost a fortune which we don’t have. I’m not the type to call for the manager to go. I never do as I can never think of anyone suitable with our budget, and he did get two Motm awards this season, but I’m frustrated with style of play and this bloody winless run.
  3. Nope. Just been busy with work and family bud. Four kids, and my lad signed pro-youth so have been watching kids football these past few years so don't get to watch the grown up stuff.
  4. There is only a slim chance one guy would go there with Arlene Foster, let alone two. What was the Doc thinking?
  5. Is Big Gus still here with his Pie Reviews? He would be fucking perfect.
  6. Eddie Howe has trolled Celtic better than McGee on here!
  7. On a side note (and I know he wasn't a Well player) - I thought Andy Rhodes was a fantastic keeper back in the day. Vastly underrated.
  8. I can see your point to a certain degree, but Hollis didn't really do much wrong. He was just 'meh' to me. He was an understudy keeper who kept the No 1 jersey warm for a season until we signed Randolph's replacement IMO. Neilsen - aye I mind on him. My daughter was about 6 and asked him at the callender signing event 'who are you?' He told her. She replied ' never heard of you'. He looked crushed. Didn't feel right putting him in the group after that. Dan Twardzik was the best 4'5" goalie Ive ever seen playing fitba - behave yourself!
  9. May as well throw my tuppence worth in too... Best Motherwell keepers I've seen since I started going to Fir Park are: Darren Randolph. A very quiet keeper (I sat behind the goal a lot) but had great presence in the area. John Ruddy, Trevor Carson and Mark Gillespie too. Worst: I think we have been lucky with keepers in recent years. I think Craig Sampson was poor; he wouldn't catch a shot in the 6 yard box and the loose ball was always left by McManus, so we conceded a lot of tap ins. Connor Ripley was terrible at first, but I did really like the kid.
  10. I think the goalie is the unsung hero of the team and IMHO the hardest position on the park. Who are your best and worst Keepers you have seen play for your team? Keep in mind the mix in generations on here.
  11. That's it? Not even a 'hiya' after all these years? You won. Not even an acceptance speech?
  12. Yup. Gonna have child no 4 now! Not expected and we are both old enough to know better, but hey, it's happened and we are both excited.
