Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons


Recommended Posts

His tenure ended in a bit of a dampner didn't it? Seemed to run out of steam?
Out of the candidates linked in the press he stands out.

The football was never really great but a couple of solid years after McGhee and Baraclough were more than welcome.

It was the right decision for him to resign in the end, I’ll still maintain we’d have never finished 3rd (or maybe even top 6) in the previous season if it hadn’t been called early, we were woeful those last few weeks and it carried on when football returned.

Ultimately the players signed had absolutely no interest in playing for Motherwell and I think Robinson has even publicly acknowledged that he made a mistake on that front.

I still have mostly good memories of his time here, mainly beating Rangers 2-0 at Hampden.

Does anyone know if both BBC and Premier Sports pay the same for live game access, is there any benefit to us being on free telly over a pay channel? Are all revenues pulled and distributed between all 8 teams?

I presume, given that's the way that all TV is done, that it's the case yes.

Perhaps but I don't see him leaving Motherwell to be assistant elsewhere.

I could see it. I'm not even entirely sure what he does any more, so I'm sure whatever it is probably isn't what he'd ideally want to be doing.

He's got a job for life at Motherwell and is doing a degree to be a sports director, something he could manage as a number three with us but probably not as number two at a new club. 

We'll probably bump up his role eventually if he stays put. You could imagine he might change his mind if a managerial job came up and he fancies going that path but chucking what he has at Motherwell to be assistant at St Mirren would seem a mental gamble to me.

I was thinking we'll eventually move him to something along the lines of a Director of Football since that's what he's studying. I'd be all in favour of us bringing that type of thing in tbf.

An opportunity for Lasley too?


Good Paisley boy Keith, grew up playing for Glennifer Thistle and going to Saints matches.
Hearing his mate Robbo wants him as his number two.
Tough choice. Does he come home or does he stay at Motherwell?

Maurice Ross is no doubt still trying to hook up with Robinson as number 2. I think I've listened to or read several interviews with him where he affirms he will become Robinson's number 2 as and when he gets a suitable job. Granted that was before his racism at Notts County and leading the Blue Brazil to their best league form in 3 years.

His assistant at Morecambe was that Diarmud fella that he brought in to work in our academy a few years ago. I'm guessing he'll probably just bring him.

That's exactly who his no.2 is at St. Mirren.  There was a picture on social media this morning with the two of them at St. Mirren.

That Robinson thunderdome team is maybe the most fun I've ever had at the football (only rivalled by the hilarious Michael Higdon season where we leathered everybody). Compared to the turgid, long ball to nobody shite we're putting up with this season I'd fucking love a return to something that's even half as entertaining as 3-5-2 taking bodies for fun.
