Walking Down The Halbeath Road

Recommended Posts

I think Williamson could improve after leaving us, much like Byrne did.
Not sure he has the natural defending instinct needed unlike Byrne who had the skill but would fade out of games. Byrne just needed to develop physically and learn the game a bit.

Byrne had that game against Raith where we beat them 1-0 (League Cup IIRC) and he was immense. Slammed into every tackle and sprayed the ball around perfectly. Too rarely seen though.

Do you not rate Williamson? Surprised to hear that tbh.

Byrne was an absolute ghost in about 90% of the games was us. 

His move to Livingston was pretty crucial in that he also operated in a different shape, playing as the deepest midfielder in a 3 man man central midfield was different from how we'd been asking him to play. Different players suit different shapes, Joe Thompson for example didn't suit that midfield, he operates much better as a conventional box to box midfielder in a two.  

If we'd kept Byrne he would never have developed into the player he is now and probably would be kicking about league 1/bottom championship, he done fantastically well to drop a level to get game time at a team that played a system that suited him, he deserves everything he gets from his career. 

 

Williamson could do well at Partick, from what I remember they play with wingbacks, if they have a pacier centre back and a midfielder who can come over and support that'd be the system that would suit him the best.

I see Liam Brown of Motherwell has been released today.
Quick look at the young man's Twitter shows him to follow our Twitter page and a recent 'like' of his is our announcement of the Ryan Dow signing of last week.
I assume he'll be announced soon.
Just cry me Poirot.
God the off season is boring

Sure someone in the know said he was one of the “already signed” category Crawford mentioned at the council meeting. Motherwell fans spoke highly of him but knew he wouldn’t get in their team with the current players playing in that position.

Has Andy Ryan signed?


I believe he’s the only out of contract player to not have been confirmed.

I hope he does. Still think there's a firing goalscorer in him.

That game against Falkirk seemed to suggest the opposite. 

Apart from games against absolute diddies in the cup or part-time jobbers, he's been a complete ghost.

I disagree. This season he was shit, as everyone was. I think the guy that scored away to Inverness late towards the end of the previous season is the guy. He was kept out the team by Clark and McManus who worked well together.

He scored away to Falkirk and Morton this season. Last season he also scored in the 2-2 draw in Inverness, that saw us into the playoffs. Has struggled with injuries for the last 2 years though and hasn’t played many minutes.

15 years ago today.

Still remember the scenes at half time (maybe pre-match) with folk singing “Into The Valley”

I’d told anyone that would listen that we were going all the way after beating United at EEP back in January. We get that penalty for the Balde handball and we would have won the Cup.

Still remember going to the Open Day on the Sunday and seeing all the banners up around the town brought a tear to the eye. What a team that was.
