Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons


Recommended Posts

Aye I'm not a Lee Miller fanboy or anything but find it quite funny that there's presumably not many Motherwell fans playing professional football yet he made a career of playing for every team around about our paygrade except from us. 
See also Rab Douglas.

The thing that I found amusing was that there was a time while he was at Livi where going by his IG he genuinely seemed to be around Fir Park more than he was his own club.

I'm the same though there's definitely a bit of disappointment that he never played for us.

I think it was around the same time we were promoted, I think he was actually doing youth coaching at Motherwell which would explain why he was there a lot, along with his son being in the academy. 

He was still out with a bad injury, I think in the first 7 months we were back up he was out with an injury.

But we get all flustered about Lawless publicly supporting another team.

Douglas has also been mentioned. He's been at every level in Scottish football and one I more expected us to bring in at some point. I haven't looked closely at it but I suspect we were pretty well served for goalies when he was on his more affordable stage of his career.

I don't think anyone necessarily has a problem with Lawless supporting another team. Though I freely admit I don't like the particular team he supports and yes, I absolutely judge him because of it.

It's how he chooses to carry himself publicly that causes people to call him out for it.

As promising as the young boys seem at this age. We've no real stand out aged 18/19 as far as I know. that'll hurt us. Few baron years coming.

 

I am also getting worried about the team for this season.

Or you can play 16 and 17 year olds if they are good enough

It's very rare they are.

But throw them in

Theres a photo floating around on the interwebs of Lee Miller playing for Hearts against us at Tynecastle, and you can see his "Live The Dream" wristband below the cuff of his Hearts top.

Also Big Rab has a Motherwell tattoo.

He was coaching for Motherwell while playing at Livi and he’s obviously a local guy.

Had zero idea he was a Motherwell fan. Pretty gutted about the whole thing now.

I vaguely knew the family and his grandpa was on the Motherwell board back in the sixties and seventies

So I've been waiting a lifetime for Grimmy to score, I can watch the match live... but I'm so busy doing DIY I actually don't look at a clock until 5pm.

I miss it.
