Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons


Recommended Posts

Spittal is a known quantity at this level but we already have Sean Goss as our token shitebag who puts in the odd good delivery. Don't get me wrong, I think Spittal would be okay for us and I wouldn't be overly disappointed if he signed but I'm also not convinced he's much better than anyone we have at the moment.

How have Jordan Roberts and Justin Amaluzor been for you guys? Think you are not resigning them? I ask as they are wingers and known to be pacey... Two things I could see Stephen Robinson lusting over. emoji1787.png

I'd imagine Roberts will be away back down the road. Him being here for the 2nd half of last season seemed as much down to the fact he'd already played for 2 teams and couldn't sign for anyone else after he agreed his exit from Hearts. Did a turn for us now and again.

Amaluzor is precisely the type of player Robinson would have signed in a summer window then binned out the team after a couple of months before releasing him when he was here.

That sentence could have easily been applied in January 2021 when a cigar smoking hobit was retained.

Lawless was a decent player tbf, just an arsenal arsehole and finished by the time he came back. If we signed him at the same age Spittall is now I think he'd have done fine.

Interesting. Doesn't turn me completely against him by any means but makes his stats perhaps a little less shiny.

Hard to argue you wouldn't take a chance on him being better than Amaluzor/Roberts/Efford though.

It's worth bearing in mind it's TransferMarkt as the source so it's almost certainly unreliable but it suggests he's been predominately used off the right or left at County this season.

I don't know if @RandomGuy. is still doing his radar graphs but it'd be interesting to see how Spittal compared with Watt last season.

From memory, due to the weird way WyScout tag some positions, I think he's involved in the CM groupings rather than the W options, but I'll try and double check at some point.

Sold. 

On Spittal, I'd take him on the basis that I have in my head he saves good games for playing against us, so he can't do that if he plays for us. 4D chess.

In other news, not that they've been a factor for 20 years but the diamonds got papped by Queens Park in the Championship play off.

I don't think I've ever seen a strip as chronic as the Spiders away one, needed to lie down in a darkened room afterwards.

It's supposedly every result in their history and that is a looooooot of red.

Is that right? Alexander has commissioned our new away strip to reflect the story of 2022

*Green and red striped shorts (with the arse missing out them for the final game).

Livi last year, next year Partick

Pretty much as expected and seems like the right time for a parting of the ways in each case.

Lamie obviously executing the get out clause in his PCA with Dundee, but assume he's exploring his options before committing to the extension offered. Personally, although he's improved considerably in recent times from his early days, I just feel that going into the new season with the same core of central defensive options is the wrong move. I think we need a more natural leader in there than what we currently have, so moving him on and seeking a replacement in that mould would be my preference. Unless we could somehow get someone to take Ojalaa off our hands. In that case I'd 100% punt him and the Bathgate Maldini can stay.

Other than that, someone creative with a heart larger than a pea in midfield, and another forward capable of chipping in with double figures in the goals for column should be priorities.

The St Mirren squad is going to fairly bulk out over the next week or so. 

They had the socials post up confirming O'Hara at 3pm as soon as our squad update was published. :lol:

Shaw's a weird one. Didn't get much of a chance but didn't really do anything to merit one either.  It'll f**k me off if he goes back to Celtic and turns into Kristoffer Ajer or something. 

Shaw kind of fell into that category of player who had a game where GA seems to have made a decision on them.

See also - Carroll getting sent off against Dundee then disappearing until December, Grimshaw getting hooked after 45 mins at Dens when we lost 3-0, he didn't start a game for the rest of the season.

Shaw cost us 2 goals at Tynecastle then was subbed off with a head knock after 40 mins in the 1-1 against St Mirren in Paisley (clearly not his fault), then missed the next game as it was Celtic so was ineligible. After that he's only made 5 sub appearances.
