Not that it mattered anyway.

Got to feel for Nathan Patterson trying to make his way in the game at the same time as the generational talent that is Stephen O'Donnell.

It's quite easy to not feel sorry for a pro footballer who broke Covid rules while we all (most of us) followed them. Thems the breaks. Hopefully he learns from it and realises he shouldn't doing anything to jeopardize what looks like it might be a really good career

I’ve only saw that Patterson in a few of the European games this season and thought he was pish.

Do people not understand what ginger hair means?

Apparently Mark O’Hara has played 50 times for Motherwell.

I really do have no perception of time anymore.

Do they count the Friday fives after training?

I see that's Jordan Roberts confirmed as being out for the remainder of the season. I thought it was overly optimistic when it was mentioned he was a late fitness test for the game on Wednesday. Shame his season has been cut short as he's been one of the (surprising) bright spots this season. 

Watt still missing for the cup' game too so looks like we'll be going to absolutely shitfest it tomorrow. I'm not quite sure how we've gone from having a load of guys who can 'play anywhere across the front 3' to having 2 fit strikers in the whole squad.

What are folks opinions on us trying to sign Roberts permanently? He obviously done a good job when he came in to the team, but I'm still not sure if that's a very limited sample size we've got to go out and sign him permanently.

As much as I don't think Lawless has merited being included in the starting eleven at the moment, that does worry me for his impact next season, if he can't get in the team in its current state.

I imagine the 5-3-2 will be what we are looking at again tomorrow.

If we assess everything that's out and there and available, and Jordan Roberts is the best name on that list, then I'm happy to sign him. 

I don't want us to be dishing out a 2-year deal simply because he impressed for a few games while on loan in an utterly shit team.

I'd take Roberts but maybe not as a starter. I think he'd be a definite upgrade on Seedorf as a squad player.

If Hearts want money then no.  Hearts should actually see it as a new signing if they use him properly.

Tbh, this is why getting the safety side of things done and dusted feels as important and Motherwell Twitter greetin' about performances is kind of wildly missing the point to me. We're an injury to Kelly away from finishing the season with Chapman in goals.

I mean, a Cup Semi final would be nice but maybe I've just been worn down by Scottish Fitba' this year but it's absolutely not season-defining. If we go through great, if we don't then meh. Getting this season in the bin now is absolutely fine with me.

I'm kind of in the same place about Roberts.

It feels like all the January signings (Lawless aside) were short term fixes in what was a very limited market and it's been a small sample size with Roberts.

Committing to him off the back of a handful of good/decent games is a bit narrow in scope and @Desp nails it in the post above. Don't get me wrong he's been fine since he's come in and it's shite that he's injured but he's got another year to go on his deal with Hearts so unless he's getting cut loose by them I'd be hesitant for us to be chucking some cash at them for him.

I don't think I've ever watched Lawless and thought he was a good player. 

The idea of him being in the starting 11 next season doesn't bode well. Maybe I'm just missing someone though.

I wouldn't be rushing to sign Roberts either at the moment.
