  1. I think Motherwell were under the microscope for a few years after the 2015 game. It certainly was the case that the first couple of rows of all the home ends were taped off at Fir Park for a few select games, as any more misdemeanours would have incurred a hefty fine. I'm sure they were being extra cautious with the away fans in the Rangers games. I don't recall it happening for Celtic, but can't confirm. Behave. It will take more than a few injuries. Rangers finished 39 points clear of 3rd place last season. Come back closer to the pack, perhaps, but it would take gross mismanagement of the highest order for Rangers to finish below an Aberdeen, Hibs, Hearts or Motherwell. Celtic, with their worst season is god knows how long, failed to win 16 of their league games last season and still finished 14 points clear in 2nd place. As much as I would love it, it isn't happening any time soon. The gap between 3rd and 12th in the Scottish Premiership is microscopic compared to the gap between even 2nd and 3rd. Despite many pretend protestations, that's exactly how Rangers & Celtic like it and they'll do all they can to ensure it remains that way.
  2. They also have the biggest number of ST holders, tbf. However, they are absolutely at it with the no away fans thing. Saves them any bother and they can afford not to. Yeah, we did at the Aberdeen game. The section of the PO'D stand closest to the Cooper was the Covid Section, where fans could choose to swap their usual seat to sit there, which was a bit more spacious. This would be good. How much do we make from an OF game at home? 4800 tickets at an average of £20 (taking into account any kids/concession tickets) = £96,000? Take away the vastly increased stewarding and policing costs, plus the number of PATG 'Well fans who just won't bother, I do wonder just how much we make on these games.
  3. How very dare you! Tbf, Ramsay did look very good and the future looks very bright if he continues as is.
  4. Seeing out a game with Mark O'Hara as our lone striker. We're absolutely taking the piss, lads.
  5. We look like a team now, eh? Who knew launching dross like Lamie, Crawford and Lawless onto the bench/stands would pay dividends? Fucking really enjoyed that today (other than missing the 2nd goal as my daughter needed a piss). We look solid, well drilled, and a threat up top with the front three. Felt Woolery had his best game today. A shout out to @capt_oats who suggested a while back the international break could have could have come at a good time for him.
  6. 100%. Plenty of possession but Aberdeen done f**k all with it. I thought we defended well and broke well when the opportunity arose. The Scandinavian Sexbombs will absolutely do for me. Solid. We look like a well drilled, well organised team. Aberdeen, and their philosophy, could learn a thing or two. Onwards.
  7. Kelly O'Donnell Ojala Mugabi McGinley Slattery Grimshaw O'Hara Roberts van Veen Watt 2-1 Motherwell.
  8. I'm sure we all know this, but there's fucking no chance we've spent £300k plus on a centre half from the Norwegian league. I'm looking forward to seeing the big handsome b*****d on Saturday, right enough.
  9. Already counting down the minutes until the Rangers fans' heids explode when Patterson (who gave the ball away about 324 times tonight) gets dropped for O'Donnell on Tuesday night.
  10. Well before my time, so i'll take an absolute punt on a young Jim McLean at Dens Park.
  11. Maybe I'm just becoming a grumpy old c**t, or whether it was the hangover I had today, but has the drumming in the East Stand always been constant for 90 minutes? Give it a fucking rest for a couple of minutes now and again. Also, as I said a few weeks back, not really sure what Woolery is offering here.
  12. To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee.
