Think this move might suit both parties tbh. Would drive him there myself.

With petrol prices the way they are? He can get the train.

If we somehow manage to get some compensation for Robinson after his results so far, it would be absolutely hilarious.

I don't think he's a bad manager, he could still come good at us and he'd probably do OK if he was to go back to Motherwell - but let's be honest, he's been rotten for us so far and could well be out the door before Christmas.

I don't believe this for a minute, in fact what is more plausible is that Motherwell have leaked this opinion in some way to upset us before the game, knowing they are at their weakest.

It's also the Record, which is a red flag for any story purporting to be based on fact.

Yeah, there are only one or two journalists with credibility when it comes to stuff like this. Never heard of the reporter that’s written that article…

I’ll await Fabrizio Romano tweeting.

Can understand the attraction of Aberdeen to Jim Goodwin but Motherwell to Stephen Robinson? At this moment in time?

He walked away from Motherwell just 19 months ago and would be going into the season working with a team assembled by Alexander. At the same time, leaving behind everything he has put together here: not just the squad but also the new Head of Recruitment, Sports Scientist.....

If he does want to go though then, 2 years left on his contract, highest-paid manager ever apparently, I guess we'd be talking upwards of £300K to release him and O'Carroll from their contracts.

I highly doubt webwould try to get Robinson. Just doesn't make sense from our point of view as well.

 

Seems like the Daily Rag just plucked some old managers and decided " A yes! This would make a good headline.".

It's a load of bollocks. Well have just paid compensation to a management team that had just signed a 3 year deal. Now they want to sign a management team that have a 2 year deal to run? And after financially losing out in Europe where they wouldn't have expected? Far too much cash thrown down the drain. They need someone who is out of work. Stubbs fits the bill.

I think we’d be mad to stand in Motherwell’s way if they ask to speak to him, or to ask for any kind of compensation. Given the terrible end to last season and even worse start to this one, he’s probably one more bad run away from the sack, and that really would be expensive.
He arrived in February, has there been a single good performance in the five months since? Probably St Johnstone away was the best but apart from that…
Getting him out the door for nothing would most likely save us the cost of mutual consenting him in the medium term.

We’ll be fcuked if Robinson joins Motherwell and wants to take everyone with a ‘Well connection with him. We’ll be left with Fitzy and Paisley Panda.

Why because you don't like Robinson  ?  The sums involved for it to happen mean it won't. Robinson has built his team at Saints he won't walk now. A bigger club with big resources yes he would be off but not to Motherwell thankfully.

You surely can't be the same ZingaliMan who posted " Always laugh when reading Motherwell are same size as Saints." a week ago...

Anyway FWIW my take on it is that Well & their fans have unrealistic expectations complaining that Alexander almost cost them the Top6 spot last season - I wish Robbo had only "almost" cost us the slot. I know the Sligo result on ThursdayNite was embarrassing but was it any worse than us, Hibs or the Fakes failing to make it out of the Sectional phase of the LC?

Anyway it should add just a little more spice to Sunday's game. Do we want the "big team" to poach our manager, he's only two defeats away from a serious "must go" campaign. I wouldn't be praying for him to go but depending on the compo and with a month before the transfer window closes it might work out to our advantage...

We paid Morecambe £100,000 compensation for Robinson.  We would want that back plus two years salary.  You think Motherwell are going to pay that, seriously  ? When I wrote above a bigger club he would be off Hibs that size or English Championship.

Assuming there is something in this, we have to ask ourselves can we bring someone in that can work with this squad and in particular Robinsons new signings? We don't have any idea how this is going to go this season. Better sticking with the guy that started the plan off this season?

Nope what you said was...

I remember early 70's we had not much more than 1,00 fans going into Love Street. We have a fickle support as today fact . The die hards turned up today around 1,500 these are the real die hards. Always laugh when reading Motherwell are same size as Saints. Motherwell have a bigger support and are more successful than St Mirren. Ross Country. ICT...

No mention of compensation in that post as Alexander had yet to be sacked, no mention of Hibs or any English Championship club. The issue came out of a post regarding whether the LC attendance vs FC Edinburgh was the lowest for a competitive game at GHR.
