Motherwell v St Mirren Scottish Cup Replay 18/2/20

Recommended Posts


Special mention to Cammy McPherson. Could not get in the team at the start of the season and ended up with the captain's armband last night. Really proving to be an important player for us.

Graham that was not Eric

Eric Sinclair came as a swap deal for Sexy Lexy

Played 2 games and got papped away for Airdrie

I don't think Graham ever kicked a ball for us?

On the topic of 1980s journeymen, I noticed a car from the Jim Rooney Driving School in Motherwell last night.

And somebody on here once said "you would struggle to make a case for him being a footballer full stop"

Football fans, eh?

Would be my player of the year if the awards were tomorrow.

First name on the team sheet every week, he’s a proper player.

Regarding Thommos comments about the league being more important than the cup last night, I completely disagree with him and I’m surprised he made them to be honest.

What we will all remember most from Thommo’s St Mirren career is those glorious goals in the semi and final of the league cup. They’ll still be spoken about in 50 years.

He was also involved in some successful relegation battles, but no one will remember them. Nobody will come up to him and go remember that time you were a big part in that team who finished 8th in the league...?

I could tell you the starting 11 that one us the cup in 1987. I was far too young to remember the game but they’re all club legends. By most accounts the team of the late 70’s and early 80’s was actually a better team than the 87 team. Don’t know anything about them though, cause they never even made a cup final.

League positions come and go. Sometimes we get relegated, sometimes we get promoted, ‘Twas ever thus. It’s the cups where true legends are made for clubs like us.

Our most important game of the season was last night. Our next most important game is the quarter final a week on Saturday.

How can Friday be more important than either of them? Even if you do think the league is more important than the cups (which I don’t) nothing gets decided in the game against Hearts. We could win and get relegated or lose and stay up.

It's a matter of opinion. Comments made to me last night at the game chimed with yours but, I guess, from a financial and progress point of view then staying up is more important in the scheme of things and that's all he is saying. Me., I love the cup win in 1987 and the League Cup wins. Realistically the only chances of national success for us as a club.

Agree TC

 

In my time supporting I have witnessed 4 promotions( 77, 00,06,18) 3 relegations  4 Cups, ( SC 87, LC 13, B&Q 2006, Anglo Scot 79) I can remember fondly all Cup wins , the regular trips to Hampden in the 80s.

 

However could easily forget Gus keeping us up by skin of our teeth and last season in total bar the play off final...……..

 

We have a genuine chance to get to a Semi and then anything is possible as in 2013. Embrace it, its what its all about, after all we can get 17-20 k fans to Hampden more than triple what we get at home

BBC Report with Highlights

Motherwell 4-4 St Mirren (pens 2-3): Paisley side into Scottish Cup quarter-finals after shootout - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51454022

Obviously (like Thommo) the BBC did not consider the cup tie worthy of TV commentary since the 2 ugly sisters were not involved - as it looks like they 'borrowed' the footage from either the Motherwell or St Mirren TV!
