Motherwell FC - A Thread For All Seasons


Recommended Posts

Dick Campbell, Robinson, Craigan, Faddy?...yer all on crack or fishing. The only explanation for any of these suggestions. The players are in enough trouble trying to string short passes to each other without fans spouting pish like this as new managers.

Just think of it as a pressure release after this week.  It’s fun to throw daft names about for a bit, helps to offset the depression when we announce Terry Butcher.*
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*kidding, it’ll be Ian Cathro.

Yeah I suppose but you know some daft journo is going to publish these names. For me its got to be someone with a good bit of experience that can hold a dressing room together. We have had two up ands coming managers in Robinson and Alexander. Hopefully the directors will find someone who won't take any shit from the players underperforming and can get them motivated. Not McGhee (shudder) or Campbell they are past it for me. Certainly not any ex-Well players.

I can't think of any with any success in management (only one who has we could not afford (Martinez) he would never return to the club who basically ditched him when we went into administration and is flying high with Belgium))

Looking at the colt team who beat Sligo 2-0 on 2018, does anyone else think what could have been with that group? 

Aside from Campbell who played several seasons, and Turnbull who went for a record fee, had the group stuck together does anyone think they might have rivalled the OF In the way hearts in 04-06 and Hibs in 07 did?

I understand we received fees for all those who moved on, but it Is frustrating watching a team so devoid of attacking threat, and realising many of our best youth players were in the attacking areas but chose to play elsewhere, thinking McAleer (sp?) McKinstry, among others. Those two groups had they stayed as long as Campbell could have been an absolute joy to watch IMO.

What are others thoughts on here?

I might be misremembering but did that team not run Ross County close and Turnbull was away on international duty.

The team that won the youth cup was largely the same crowd.  I think Dylan Mackin may have got found out.

I'm pretty sure they did actually,  and there are always Individuals who can't make the step up from youth to senior level. But some of those players seem to have ruined their careers by moving too soon.

Basically anyone that pays a fiver a month thinks they have a right to tell him he's getting the bullet, is the long and short of it.

Sounds exactly like SMISA.

Yeah, but I guess our moon howlers don't go on about crowd sizes in the 70's

Liam Kelly wae some wild opinions and comments again is it? No like him.

No sure there's much wrong with what's been said there.

Don't see anything wrong with what Kelly said there. You saw the state of Twitter, fb, and heard the fans on Thursday. A large group of fans turned against GA a while ago, and it was definitely toxic, so I don't blame him if that was a deciding factor.

It is funny that there are folk that have been giving him dogs abuse for the best part of a year now clutching their pearls because a tiny bit of criticism has come their way.

Football fans being thin-skinned? Well I never.

Liam Kelly blaming the fans for Sligo winning because the 'negative noise gave us too much of an uphill task' and blaming the fans 'toxicity' for Alexander leaving is absolutely wild.

Only beaten by some of you lads defending those comments.

It's good to have some proof at last that - despite the evidence of his post-match interviews and his persistent adherence to tactics that aren't working - Alexander isn't actually blind and deaf.
