  1. My only real comment on this is...I absolutely detest sevco
  2. They've done us a favour...f**k paying to get into that fucking place
  3. Aye agreed...I've no idea why they address it as a Motherwell park
  4. Caledonian Braves playing out of Motherwell is a bit of an anomaly...absolutely nowhere near Motherwell and much closer to Bothwell, Bellshill or Hamilton
  5. Not had that feeling at a game of football in what feels like years...I was still buzzing hours after the kick off, watched the game on Alba and watched the Sportscene highlights. The wife wasn't impressed at all. It was said on sportscene that the sheep had 75% possession and it certainly felt that way. This looks like a clear instruction from the manager to allow the other team to have the ball, let them huff and puff and we attempt to hit on the counter. It was evident against both Hibs and Dundee too At times its really difficult to watch, but who can argue with the results? The defence was essentially 4 centre backs today, before Lamie came onto make it 5, and that is going to be difficult for any side to breakdown. Ojala was excellent, Solholm looks like a good capture and the two full backs did fine. While a special mention for Kelly, who done everything asked of him...to me, he looks like a keeper that shouldn't be at our level. Midfield still really concerns me though, Slattery looks a top player but at times yesterday it looked like he was in Midfield himself with both OHara and Grimshaw, really chasing shadows and getting dragged out of position. Hopefully Goss, when up to speed will be the one to come in and help Slattery out. Up front, I've said it for ages now but Watt is an absolute joy of a player, his work rate is 2nd to none in our team and he can play football as well, he is brilliant and we need to tie him down. His partnership with crazy Dutch b*****d could be quite something. I'm yet to be convinced by Woolery, he has physique and pace but I'm not seeing that fitba brain that I like fitba players to have. I'm in two minds on the shithousery thing...on one hand I quite enjoyed how obvious Alexander made it by whipping off his 3 forwards for 3 big units to help us defend against a side with no real know-how of how to break us done, but the constant dropping to the floor at the slightest touch and grabbing the ball on the way down is really tiresome, both teams were at it and the referee failed to nip it in the bud. A few other things; when the son of Derek Ferguson isn't getting pelters from the East Stand because he is so far down the bawbag list, you know that you are up against a team of fannies. How good was it to be so comfortable in beating a team with top-class arseholes like Gallagher and Brown in their ranks?...a new one to add to the list is the little bawbag right back, who seemed to take great delight in trying to rile up our fans when his own team were getting beat. Tony Watt taking the Harry Hunt out of Brown was a joy to see...as was the Aberdeen fans punching each other about the South Stand. An absolutely brilliant 90 mins at Fir Park.
  6. I just know that he is apparently as adept with his right foot as he is with his left and is comfortable playing on either side of the defence
  7. I thought Robertson was one of our top performers at the Euros... ...what I meant was that the left back discussion is a really good debate about two very good footballers...while the right back debate is all a bit shite
  8. The Paterson v ODonnell debate is getting a wee bit tiresome...unlike the Tierney v Robertson debate, neither of our right backs could be considered to be anything like world class at this current time. To me, right back (or right wing back) has been such an obvious problem position for Scotland for years now. I can't think of a player with such limited ability, amassing the amount of Scotland caps that SOD has...and that pretty much says it all for me. That we now have folk losing the plot because a player with 5 appearances for Sevco isn't an automatic pick, probably says more about the intelligence of that clubs fanbase than anything else. SOD played OK the other night but at the same time you could clearly see that the Austrians were pretty happy for him to have the ball in almost any area of the pitch, as he is clearly our weakest player. I really hope Patterson or the boy at Aberdeen or Bologna can help us sort out that side of the park in the long term.
  9. I dont expect players to pretend they are lifelong Motherwell fans but i do expect the professionalism from our players that includes not actively supporting our rivals. Hes a wee fanny
  10. The raging *** face of Steven Lawless is what's annoying me
  11. I think we need to remember that the team are still coming together. That front 3 have never played together and Slattery is only playing his 2nd game up here, and playing beside a guy who has had a full year out on the treatment table. I wont be making any judgements until we've played at least 10 games. In contrast, St Johnstone have a settled side and theyve been settled for years now. Wotherspoon, Craig, Davidson, May, OHalloran , McCann all played for them for years and theyve a very settled defence as well. Won both cups and just took a draw away to galatasaray...they're a good side. That said, I hate the formation we play, 3 up front with no real width and players that dont look comfy playing wide of a striker...the midfield 3 are so narrow and that will only work if the full backs are competent going forward.
