  1. I hope I'm wrong but you have to assume one of these Hibs crosses will come off.
  2. So I guess we're looking to bore them to death and see if we can nick something?
  3. I'd be happy enough with Roberts as a squad player but assume Hearts are paying him more than we'd be prepared to. Anyway Accies have already had the Spice of Life Stand so I suppose we just have to go with a player. Can we change it depending on who we're playing? Scott McDonald Stand when we're playing Celtic, Dougie Arnott or Ryan Bowman Stand when we're playing Rangers- that sort of thing.
  4. Changing direction at speed so that you skiff the side of a stationary defender is an underrated art although Ambrose didn't help himself by slightly putting a foot out.
  5. Half the players mentioned aren't ginger, particularly Corrigan. I've got no idea what's going on! Anyway, has anyone mentioned Ally Mauchlen?
  6. Really sticking up for SOD as they try to get a young guy who's played a handful of first team games (and is now suspended) into the Scotland team.
  7. Hopefully this isn't an indicator of our style of play for next season but Alexander was tasked with keeping us up and he's done that.
  8. I've been listening to the radio but Rangers are now playing so there's been no coverage of the other games. Doesn't sound as though I'm missing much though.
  9. I think it will be the radio for me tonight but is anyone planning to watch this tonight? We now have an Accies fan on the thread (welcome @stepek 4 tellys ) - what's the Accies TV coverage like? Was the jobby talk a one-off?
  10. Sammon was useless at Motherwell but thought he might do a job at Falkirk after stepping down a few divisions - obviously not. The question then is, how far down does he need to go to be of use?
  11. A picture of a baby holding an expensive bottle of whisky? I assume they were being assisted!
  12. We had tickets for last year that we were hoping would be rescheduled for this year but are now put off again. I'm assuming the organisers have decided it wouldn't be profitable to hold it with some sort of reduced capacity.
  13. And make a very good living in doing so and fair play to him for it. He might even do a Bryson and end up at Aberdeen afterwards when he's broken.
  14. BBC news last night said there were around 50,000 flew from UK to India in February alone which I couldn't get my head round. Anyway got my vaccination appointment for next week through today. Bring it on!
  15. Do you think there's a similar Luton forum saying Motherwell is a hole?
  16. I know all the cup chat is very much tongue in cheek but I'm foolishly feeling my hopes start to build. I'm sure that will stop with a bang on Wednesday evening when I'm brought back down to earth. I notice the enthusiasm for the Accies game is such that no-one has even started a thread on it less than 48 hours before kick-off.
  17. Douglas Park certainly had something about it and I completely get your 'it might be a shit hole but it's our shit hole'. I grew up in Hamilton and would sometimes play football on the grass behind the stand or wander down with some school friends to watch a game. Anyway my dad started lifting me over the turnstiles at Fir Park when I was about 4 or 5 and I would run about down the front. It might have been some sort of punishment but we're both still going.
  18. The club's twitter account paid tribute to Robin Fisher who died at the age of 82. I knew Robin a long time but hadn't spoken to him for over a year due to lock down - life long Accies fan who didn't take it too seriously and always happy to joke about football with this Motherwell supporter. An absolute gentleman who had a positive influence on so many people - rest in peace Robin.
  19. I drive through Inveraray quite often (apart from the last year obviously) and always fancied a walk up there - great pic. Anyway, a few beers last night including a delicious Monomania 431 from Vocation and a Fyne Ales Sunrise Bliss grapefruit IPA (quite nice but not too much grapefruit going on and I prefer an Elvis Juice from Brewdog). I got a new phone last week and for some reason the photos won't upload - don't know why.
  20. Tam Cowan mentioned Goodwin has been very quiet since the footage which shows the dive to Stephen Thompson on OTB. He messaged Goodwin who responded to say "Stonewaller" with the little winking emoji.
  21. Pretty much the highlight of Hastie's contributions this season. Well taken penalty mind you (as they all were).
  22. Don't know why but I can't get my Chrome cast to work so stuck with tablet. That cross from O'Donnell was horrific but we're starting to open things out a bit by using Kelly.
  23. Thanks. Not to be sniffed at and we should be hoping that Gallagher is called up so we get an unexpected windfall. We might have come to an agreement with O'Donnell but that would seem unlikely with Gallagher. I assume the players get some sort of payment from the SFA anyway.
  24. On a one month deal? Tell them we'll split the payment 50/50.
