  1. Helpful insight, cheers.
  2. St Mirren vs Dundee United

    Worth mentioning that the attack against Livi was very fortunate in that one of your players was playing a short pass square across the field and Lawson tried to cut it out but managed to play a perfect through ball; your attacker then never had it under control before being brought down by Halkett. But I’m not bitter Clearly, I have no place in this thread (this season at least) but I did spend money at the pub and feel like I deserved a better game.
  3. Already getting restless at lack of games and transfer announcements. It's gonna be a long summer... Hopefully extend contracts for Kelly, Tiffoney, Lawless etc.
  4. Yea, I think the offensive options will be stronger next season so I think we could beat our ‘goals for’; on the contrary, I think it will be almost impossible for us to better the defensive unit of this season (incl. Kelly) so I expect us to concede more. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out as I think our low scoring meant teams would try and hit us hard and early, at least in second half of season; and there possibly wasn’t the biggest risk given the relatively few goals we scored. Based on the signing of Bartley, I’m excited to see how we’ll shape up next year; I’m looking forward to plenty 4-3 thrillers
  5. Highlight of the League Season

    Candidates: Menga Bus scoring to beat Rangers; pumping the Jambos 5-0; drawing 0-0 with Celtic at home; and others. However, highlight for me was probably getting our first point at Celtic Park a month or so ago.
  6. Motherwell - Livingston

    I think it was 30 points by NY then 14 after. I think we’ve looked a lot better going forward in this second half of the season and I felt yesterday was pretty even, for example. I think we’ve lost 15/16 games by a single goal (generally 1-0) because we weren’t doing enough up top. The last half a dozen games have been for experimenting. Kelly has missed a couple, Lamie moved from LB to CB, etc. so results have been secondary. With a couple of defensive additions, I think we’ll have a competitive team again next year. How many of this Motherwell wonder generation do you expect to see at the start of next season? Do you think you will start the season with a stronger or weaker squad than you’ve ended this one with? The loss of Morgan for St. Mirren meant they were on a bit of a hiding to nothing I thought...
  7. Motherwell - Livingston

    Terrible marking for the header. The second goal is worse than I remember and I thought it was really bad. The boy is heading away from goal for the pen - silly. Still, I thought there were encouraging signs for us going forward during the first and second halves. There can’t have been many games this season where we’ve had 19 on target. We might’ve nicked a point but it’s maybe a bit much to expect giving away 3 set piece goals inside 25 mins. We need to get a couple of CBs in. Overall, Motherwell didn’t make the defensive errors that we did. Reasonable game for end of the season stuff and good to see a decent home crowd in the stand behind the goal.

    ‘Well fans no longer jizzing their pants about Turnbull after an anonymous second half

    Haven’t you heard? Best thing since sliced bread.
  11. Motherwell - Livingston

    Great day out so far: Missed the first goal but a set piece header doesn’t sound too clever; Amateur defending for second goal resulting in a side foot into centre of goal Soft penalty IMO. 2nd and 3rd penalties were both terrible. Strangley I think it’s been reasonably even in terms of chances.
  12. I actually think Byrne will be away, also. I think a few bigger clubs will come calling and the club would rather let him go for a fee now vs. free next summer. Had he had a run in the team since the Dundee sending off then I’d have suggested him for captain but it doesn’t look like it’s going that way. I’m a big fan of the way Byrne breaks up the game and controls possession.
  13. I don't get the hate for Erskine. He offered us something different to what we had. Wylde hasn't worked out but not every signing does. Bartley looks a great piece of business though. I like(d) Erskine, too; he is quite unlike any other player we have (Sibbald potentially) and I don’t think he let us down. Based on the comments of Hibs fans it sounds like Bartley was a great player. Given our small budget maybe have to aim to make the most out of someone who could still be a great signing? Yea, they won’t all work but it’s not as if we persevere with them in the team if we are to believe Wylde is done, for example.
  14. If he’s stepping across to CB I’d be worried about pace...
  15. Motherwell - Livingston

    I've been asking myself these questions, also. Last game for Kelly, Halkett, Gallagher, Byrne, Lawless, Miller and Hardie?
