  1. As others have said - our best player this season by a mile. Has a bit of vision and creativity which we will find hard to replace. I hope he doesn’t end up at Hearts or the dons
  2. There's no doubt he had a really good spell at Motherwell for the most part. As I said in another thread, I have a good friend who is a 'well fan and maintains that he was hamstrung by injuries toward the end and that was the main reason they fell away. He states that he is still held in high regard by the Motherwell Support. I think we should be excited by this - it may turn out to be an upgrade on Goody - and initially I was quite worried about who we would end up with. Looking forward the game tomorrow night!
  3. Like most folks, this one came out the blue for me. Can't see how anyone could be unhappy with this - better than all other realistic options being mentioned. My Motherwell supporting mate says that he was popular and rated by the fans and that the last season he had there was destroyed by key injuries. Obviously it could all go pear shaped but at the moment it seems like - by far - the best option.
  4. Although we'll be on the BBC so that's great news for us not planning to head through 🙂
  5. Tough tie - I'll be honest and say that I was hoping for a home tie and an easier team. That said - the way we are playing just now we are more than capable of winning through on a one off game.
  6. If he keeps up his good form (early days but looking good so far) then we will likely have offers in the close season. However if he is the difference and helps get us into Europe (Scottish Cup win or 4th… Or both 🙂 ) then we will be in a stronger position to tempt him into an extension as I would expect the interest to come from slightly bigger rivals - Hibs, United etc.
  7. Limited highlights as usual 🙁 Would have liked to see the near thing were Greive did all the work and then put it just past the post. Thought that would be worth including.
  8. Looks like the strongest available starting XI. They'll be up for it but so will we. Cannae wait Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  9. If they help deliver top 6 and the Scottish Cup then they will return to their respective parent clubs with our eternal gratitude
  10. They will be up for it - but I reckon our form will see us through Considering Grieve scored against St J and he scored a goal a game at a lower lever - he could bag a couple in this one. It will be great to get back to the stadium at 3pm on a Saturday after a run of night time fixtures
  11. Ah sorry - my Mac didn't show the emoji correctly... Agreed - I'll keep it quiet[emoji846]
  12. Always a late arrival home after these midweek fixtures and always shattered the next day. But totally worth it - a huge win! Like others have said all the three new guys were excellent and its great to have a striker who looks eager, interested and capable of putting the ball in the net! I also thought Ronan was fantastic again - and Jak played to his usual high standard. No real failures and other winnable fixtures this month means we can start looking at 4th as a realistic target.
  13. I've just forwarded the email to my son so he can present his - you can use the email via your phone (apparently 🙂 )
  14. Thanks for that - just checked my order and there was a pdf attachment with the tickets attached - saved me a bit of confused faffing when i got to the ground!
  15. I’d take 8 point and cup progress - I think that’s doable. My two draws are Livingston and Hearts - although after the latter’ s showing at Ibrox, maybe I should be going for 10
  16. Looks like it - since the first went in it’s been one way traffic
  17. Looking forward to this - was originally a bit miffed we had three home midweeks in a row instead of a Saturday but ended up enjoying the nights under the lights Hope the new striker gets a goal. don’t care who gets the other two for us😊
  18. Got our tickets added to season ticket quite easily - I entered the barcode on my card and it added both mine and boy’s seats to the shopping basket. Agree that it’s quite steep but still enjoying getting to the matches too much to care (just now anyway😊)
  19. Got our tickets for the four Scotland home games including the play off. The missus said she wanted to start going with us so it made sense to pay the joining fee of assure her of a playoff ticket. Looking forward to this Hampden will be jumping.
  20. Watched this one on the telly. A fantastic result that sets us up for the next two home games. Grieve unlucky not to open account but I expect that to be sorted shortly. It was great to see Ronan alive to the situation when Doyle-Hayes messed up in defence - shows he is really up for it. The fact it was Doyle-Hayes that arsed it was a beautiful bonus 😊
  21. Welcome Alex and good luck. Hopefully he gets a run out tonight - it would be good to see things get freshened up a bit tonight Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk
  22. What a chance to secure a play-off for the World Cup with a game to spare. Assuming we secure second on Friday, I'm hoping the results go our way so we are sorted for seeding as well. Unfortunately we will likely need a point against Denmark (or at the very least will need to hope results fall our way on the last round). Seeding would be huge with a home tie in the first round and a 50/50 chance of Hampden for the decider. Of course, lets just get there first. 🙂
  23. Great fightback and a corker from Brophy to get back in it. Thought our penalty was the right call and I think that the keepers trailing foot was just off the line so the linesman's decision was correct - but, being honest, I'd have been RAGING if it had been given against us. Motherwell fans furious about our penalty should take a look at the highlights from Ibrox - now THAT is a 'soft' 'penalty' - outrageous!
