Sky reporting that Ziggy's off to Dinamo Bucharest. Of all the folk out of contract in the summer, I thought he was the most likely to sign a new deal, but even then I realised that was unlikely.

Rice only seems to be playing the guys he knows will be here next season just now. I imagine Ziggy will be the exception to a good accies boy.

Theyre scouting hin tonight, but are in talks with a defender at Hellas Verona, and will only choose one.

Been saying it a lot this season but I’m actually looking forward to going down. Obviously I’ll still be apoplectic on Saturday when st Johnstone’s reserves pump us, but the pros out weigh the cons for me.

Yeah there’s less media attention in the championship and the club will lose a bit of money, but the chance to hopefully win more games, play better football, get better away days and hopefully develop some decent youngsters again will be nice.

Careful what you wish for. Could easily see us doing a double relegation, especially if we are relying on younger players.

I'll always want us to play at as high a level as possible.

I do get where you're coming from but I'll personally be disappointed when we go down. Not surprised, just disappointed.

Plus, the seethe my little club can generate simply by being in the top flight is tremendous entertainment. Folk properly lose their shit. I would miss that terribly.

For those of us who have watched us for decades in the lower leagues-42  years myself-I have no wish to ever return there as that is one of the reasons why our support is poor.

 

Staying in the top league is the only way to try and grow a support.Plenty of us never fought to bring the club back to the town to just give it up so easily and accept never being a top flight club.

Motherwell used to target Hamilton schools when were in the lower Leagues as Lanarkshire's only Premiership team.Meekly accepting this is not on my or plenty others radar.

I'm fucking miserable so here are some stats to make you all as miserable as me:

*Following stats only take into account league games*

Last time we achieved back-to-back victories:
- 2-1 v Partick Thistle & 2-0 v Motherwell (February/March 2018)

Last time we achieved back-to-back away victories:
- 3-1 v Dundee & 2-0 v Rangers (October/November 2017)

Last time we kept back-to-back clean sheets:
- 1-0 v St Johnstone & 0-0 v Motherwell (April 2017)

Last time we scored in back-to-back away games:
- 1-2 v Partick Thistle & 1-3 v Hibernian (April 2018)

We've only scored in five away games this season.

Really angry of the reality that we could be participating in the play offs. 

Players need to rectify this on Saturday. 

I do believe we could dispatch Inverness Caledonian Thistle with ease. 

Dundee United will be as close as last time 50/50 for that one.

That is pathetic. Motherwell, St Mirren, Aberdeen, Dundee? Where was the other?

Stupid statement. You always want to play at the highest level possible ffs!

I want to stay in the top league. The only problem is we will never grow our fanbase up here as YOH is suggesting.

Especially with the stats Accies1874 just highlighted.

Anyone that wants us to drop the Championship needs their head checked two thirds of our current income would just disappear following relegation.
