Could be significant that the commentators on Sportsound tonight alluding to Dec's contract situation as the reason for him not currently playing with us.

Hmm!!

He needs a gun to his head as motivation

I’ve never admitted that footballers are younger than me
Eventually you'll get to the point where ALL footballers are younger than you, I'm afraid. Next up is remembering their dads playing more than them.

What's to stop him just refusing to play if the auto-extension is enforced?

Again, idealistic. If Clarke thinks he's one of the best options at CH, he'll be in the squad. A contract dispute won't stop that even if it means a lack of playing time.

There's also not a chance you're getting £300-500k for a player that's about to turn 30 with 6 month to go on his contract.

Gallagher holds the cards here.

Called it.

If he hadn't played for us since then, then yup...you'd have called it.

But he has.

What did you call?

He's not refusing anything, He's been a sub recently and coming on.

I am not sure anyone thought we'd get money for him. If he goes to the Euros, Motherwell get money fae the SFA. That's the aim. He'll be leaving for nothing.

I knew they were but typing that made me feel weird.

That day Stevie Hammell retired and I was suddenly older than every player in the squad was an eye opener.

Wait until you're older than the manager...!

At least now Robbo's gone and GA appointed, I can only (just!) say that's no longer the case for me...!

What have been the reaction if someone told you a year ago that you'd see a Motherwell fullback playing for Scotland skin his Bayern Munich opposite number?

I thought O'Donnell did ok, had a reasonably quiet game but mainly because they didn't use him.

Here's my hot take. O'Donnell was more effective going forward than Robertson for the most part. Robertson's crossing was abysmal.

I occasionally see Liverpool highlights where they score a goal from a wonderful Robertson cross. I now just assume he's had loads of shite crosses as well that don't make the highlights.

I said at half time last night that if we had a better left-footed centre half that I would seriously consider benching Robertson. At the moment Tierney looks like a far better option there, he's even making more of an impact down the flanks whilst playing centre half than Robertson does. He seems great at carrying the ball, whereas with Robertson, in my head most of the time I've seen him put a good delivery in it's from running on to someone's pass rather than running with the ball and as a wing-back in a 3-5-2 he does look laboured. I'm not saying he's ever that bad, but for a player of his ilk, he rarely makes a difference.

Edit - meant to add I do think Robertson was a lot better in the second half, as the team were.

I have no idea. 

Who's that one again?

There does appear to be some b*****d potential there, so better late than never, although as we're looking for "hard angry b*****d" rather then "big handsome b*****d"  it would be improved by a few more tattoos and a few less teeth. Still, beggars can't be choosers, eh?

Big Dec must have residency rights in Israel by now. Spent half the year there.
