Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons

Just read Watt's interview on the BBC site - fucking hell.

I don't know what I'd expect him to say but considering we signed him when literally no one else wanted him, you'd think he be a bit more appreciative. It's a bit of a "f**k you" to the club and the fans.

I particularly enjoyed his "Motherwell would be lower in the table if it wasn't for my goals" line. He can't possibly know that and I'm pretty sure KVV has a better goals to games ratio. It's also not as though we'd have been playing with 10 men every week.

I assume someone else would have been allowed to take the penalties as well.

Should I throw a couple $100 on the 'Well tonight?

Reckless, but if you enjoy the thrill then go ahead, I will have my fingers crossed for you.

The 6-0 game was some laugh though eh?

Biggest domestic victory I can remember in my 20 odd years going to Fir Park. Can only think of the Flamutari game where we gave someone a bigger doing,

That first goal was a disaster from a defensive point of view, no attempt to clear it.  Great to see.

We should probably have hit at least 7 against Cove IMO but we spent the second half treating McFadden like a make a wish kid for some reason.

The only difference between Watt and KVV is the two pens which Watt scored (don't get me wrong, he won them himself and still had to step up and score) and KVV has a better goals per minute ratio even taking the pens in to consideration.

As for Watt's interview, I have no issue with a player doing what they think is best to support themselves financially, but it's the "I'm not motivated by money" interviews which follow that piss me off. I'd have a lot more respect for him if he came out and said "I got a great deal financially and Dundee United are only six points behind Motherwell".

Same way that Cadden gave those interviews saying he didn't do Motherwell over. He knew what he was doing and I've no problem with that, but just keep schtum and don't play the innocent.

Tbh, I found the interview unintentionally hilarious. It's an absolute car crash on so many levels.

I didn't read it as a "f**k you" or anything I just read it as him really awkwardly trying to flex and he seems quite rattled by the criticism he's taking. Also, his talking about himself in the 3rd person is absolute *chef's kiss*.

Talking at length and trying to show how unbothered he is by getting called out has the same energy...

From reading this and other variations reported elsewhere I thought the reactions he didn’t care about were from pundits who all mostly said they didn’t understand why he would leave Motherwell (unless it was for the money) so I didn’t take it as a dig at ‘Well fans.  He attempts to thank Motherwell for the platform they have given him, but he has moved on.

You boys are affy touchy about a boy you're over!  Comments are clearly aimed at the press who have pretty much had it in for him for not becoming a world beater after scoring against Barca.  He's moved around more than most so you can't really expect him to show loyalty to Motherwell, just respect and gratitude which he has, just about, done.  I do hope his football is better than his interviews though...

Unfollowing him on social media because he left us was secondary to my main reason that was his endless patter about NF-fucking-Ts.

Unrelated to the Tony Watt chat...

Somewhat related to the Tony Watt chat, Scott Burns is reporting that Dundee have agreed a PCA with Zak Rudden.

Edit: beaten to it by the Captain.

Nah, you posted it right about the same time as my edit.

I had mince on toast at the Bach which was tasty, I don’t think I would uproot for it though.

I also read it a bit like this. It read like something Alan Partridge would say when talking about driving to Dundee eating big toblerones.

10+ clubs are interested in him and he signs for Dundee?

American money.

Fair play to them though. If anything can stop them being yo yo shite it's money.
