  1. Ordinarily if one of the OF had been on the end of a bad result in Europe a few days before I would be fearful for a backlash (After chucking a lead, I'd expect Rangers to put >3 goals into Accies on Sunday). Celtic appear to be a club in a bit of a meltdown, where last night's result for them wasn't a one off and you'd imagine they'll be a bit mentally vulnerable because of poor results of late. While I'd naturally expect some sort of a reaction from them, if we can weather a bit of an early storm then I'd hope our firing forward line can take advantage of how leaky they are at the back - to put it kindly. 2-1 home win. Although I wouldn't confidently put money on it, I'm more confident than previous occasions we've faced on Old Firm team.
  2. Not much notice in terms of the pre orders, completely missed Amazon selling out this morning. Having amassed £300 in vouchers from Amazon over the year, I’ve somewhat committed to buying from there. May take a look at Argos tomorrow and put the vouchers to other things, or just wait til after launch for Amazon to restock it. Fair play to Sony on the price though!
  3. Was wondering that after last night on seeing Celtic go behind - they do not and games go to ET/Pens if a draw. Best link I could find.
  4. No problems at all with Hastie being back, or indeed when he left for that matter it's a short career, better the devil you know at the top end of the pitch. As long as he gives his all when on the pitch for us then that's all I'm interested in. Would argue it would be in our interests to see him do well with us, try and put him in the shop window for a move a club down south that would see us bring in some sort of sell on percentage.
  5. * Ewan Murray. Ewen Murray is a golf commentator and I don't think would enjoy having his name associated with that ehm, objective journalism.
  6. Memories! Haha, I'd need to use my work's laptop if I wanted a disc drive, to play the game. Probably best not ...
  7. Inspired, had a rummage for my FM09 disc but couldn't find it. Is FM09 the one with the infamous Mascio? The dirt cheap Italian wonderkid that didn't actually exist, IIRC.
  8. If the ball fell to Danny Johnson in the box, I’d fancy him to stick the ball in the net. That’s probably where it ends with positivity I could say about him - beyond that he’s limited in almost every other aspect of a game of football and is far more suited to playing in the 4-4-2 teams down south. Tony Watt. Without having the stats to hand, my opinion of him is underwhelming as a goalscorer. Alas, with the goals that we have throughout the team at the present - with Div Turnbull to return too - I’d be fully onboard a hype train of Tony Watt leading the line and helping the team out that way with his all round play as a number 9, which is very good from memory.
  9. On a slow news day, a piece of news somewhat related to us - it would appear our chances of receiving that elusive sell on from Dom Thomas at Killie continue to diminish with him now being papped out on loan to Dunfermline. Interestingly, opinions of him at Killie seem to be similar to what we had of him, that he got better and better in fan estimation with each game he didn't play.
  10. Didn't catch the Longer Listen podcast, apologies Andy, and had completely forgotten about Ferguson/that Killie game being a Robinson game. Definitely makes sense! My basis for Livingstone was the Celtic game he came on as a sub for last season IIRC? Where he'd played reserve football a day or two before, and got sub-subbed. Wasn't seen much after that.
  11. Pretty much everything covered that I can think of from last night, as Swello says - the 89% of turnover query seemed to drag on forever! One interesting thing that Robinson noted - out with enjoying his trip to see the Lion King in the capital on Friday ... - on the "some youngsters being ready for inclusion" was using an example of a player which he put in too soon, and it ended up ruining him (or words that that effect). He never referenced a name, but I took it to be Adam Livingstone? When you consider the young players that Robinson has brought into the team and made successes out of - Campbell, Turnbull etc, as well as the Scott's, Maguire's that are very much still being integrated into first team football, the only one I could think of that hasn't worked out was Livingstone..
  12. Not overly sentimental towards what happens with our stadium, perhaps its the business head thinking but I'd rather see us playing somewhere that doesn't end up costing us ridiculous amounts of money every year to keep playing at. Last years AGM hinted that it's still a good few years away yet that we'll be in a situation where it would make sense to build a new stadium than pay whatever it would take to maintain Fir Park. Also got to factor in property markets and such for when the land Fir Park is on will be at its best value to sell - an issue right now for Aberdeen it seems in selling the land Pittodrie is on for their new stadium plans. On Robbo, can't begrudge him the opportunity to earn a larger salary with a bigger club (budget, stadium size etc). I come and go on whether I can see it happening, as I do subscribe to the argument that he's a "good fit" at Motherwell and has built something exciting this season that he wouldn't want to leave this early into a project. Perhaps that's naivety though as it is a hard one to say no when the chance to increase your salary comes along from a big name in football. Time will tell at the end of the day.
  13. No interest in actually going to the game. Been a fantastic week from us, with 2 wins from the games against Killie and Livi, which set up both Rangers away, and this one away being effectively "free hits" as others have stated. As much as it is a free hit, I don't see any sense for long term morale if we go and match Celtic up 4-3-3, go for it and end up coming away with a bit of a pasting. Can't imagine Robbo - assuming he's still in charge - deviating from the back 3 formation that worked well against Rangers last week. Tbh similarly to the Rangers game, if you offered nothing worse than a 2 goal defeat I'd probably take it right now, when you compare our usual 4+ goal defeats at Parkhead over the recent years.
