Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons

I can't wait to hear Alexanders post match comments of how he thinks we're unlucky to have lost and were the better team overall 🙄

Too pedestrian for Grezza. My predicted headline:

"Bullish Alexander insists he has eased the cost of living crisis for fans by removing the need to book expensive flights to Norway."

Well then that goes to show you the quality of the Scottish league. I’m telling you, having watched Sligo in the flesh at least nine or ten times over the last couple years, there was no reason to expect a victory from Motherwell in this fixture

The hearts boy that scored was released from Falkirk last year.  There’s every reason to think a result like tonight’s is totally unacceptable.

The tie wasn’t about the gap in standards or lack of for me.  Motherwell played absolutely shocking both legs.  That must be the most concerning thing.

Honestly can’t see burrows sacking him

I don’t see any logical reason why he wouldn’t sack him and I think, after the nature of the performances, burrows will make the right call.
If the club have gotten themselves into a position where sacking the manager isn’t financially viable then GA isn’t the only one who needs to go.

I reckon he's either gone before Sunday, or gone when we lose on Sunday. 

It's gone beyond a tipping point now.

How can you justify sacking a guy after allowing him to spend on new players and staff (up till last week) letting staff go that don’t fit Alexander’s model etc then sack him before the season begins?

I know how we’d all justify it as his team isn’t good enough but I just don’t see it happening

I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed such overwhelming negativity before a league season has even began before. It’s a frightening and horrendous situation  for a club and a fanbase to be in.

Flow and the board dropped the ball by not sacking him earlier in the year but the longer they go without doing so the greater the long term damage it will cause. 

The summer recruitment (whilst possibly not done) has been an utter disaster. Still no reliable central defenders, no width, only 1 real striker, and an injury prone often suspended and uninterested one at that.

Why wait until we’ve lost and failed to score in the opening 5/6 games? Do it now, as I am absolutely certain all we will see is what we’ve witnessed the past 7 months over and over every week whilst Alexander is allowed to remain in post.

Easy, we lost 3-0 to Sligo Rovers without so much as laying a glove on them over 180 minutes. Also we've won 2 games this year?

He has a contract until 2025 and I assume so does most of his backroom team....Very expensive pay off for the club that will leave nothing for a new manager to work with

Ultimately if he stays in charge we are more than likely going down.

We've been here before, though. Baraclough's emptying isn't a million miles away from this kind of mess.

Broadly, while I wouldn't say we're 'trigger happy' as a club, it's rarely dragged out.

The facts are that it's an expensively assembled squad, that's won 3 games in 90 minutes out of the last 23.

I'm not suggesting he should be here an was right for Robinson to depart when he did, but he'd have killed for the type of investment we've had in the playing side, and his side wasn't in nearly the state this one is.

A new manager with nothing can’t do any worse. There’s no chance of him going of his own accord.

Me too. As a Hibs fan, this is something I’ve never witnessed.
