  1. Not getting the Bannigan hate. Of the starting midfielders he was the only one who showed for the ball. My concern is more how ineffective Gordon and Palmer were, yet to really see either of them really offer us. Cole looked like a proper football when he came on, his range and weight of passing looks well above our level
  2. This is exactly what I was getting at yesterday. Bannigan is the only fit midfielder we have with any sort of vision and passjng ability. I thought we saw the best performance by Bannigan this year (until his silly red card) and a lot of that was down to having Zanatta take up good positions. If that is the last we see of Bannigan (and O'Ware) it would be disgraceful from a footballing as well as sentimental point of view
  3. Getting away from the fact that Caldwell is clearly unable to get on well with people and, if this is true further reinforces why he shouldn't be managing us, I really need to pick you up on this Can you explain how Bannigan has been a liability apart from his red card? He wasn't great first half at Alloa but apart from that has been comfortably our best midfielder this year. I shudder to think what we would be like in the middle if it wasn't for him O'Ware meanwhile has played about 10 games or so for the club, never excelled when playint and yet you refer to him as a born leader and appear to care more about him being forced out than a guy who has given his career to the club. Caldwell has fallen out with a lot of players since joining the club, to me it's pretty clear the problem is him
  4. Both red cards for me but neither malicious as such. The lack of changes after going to 9 was unbelievable management. Also not getting the Bannigan hate I've read everywhere. He was comfortably the best midfielder on the park today until, well he wasn't on the park. The only one of the three today who has any passing and positional ability.

    New Owner

    I've been a season ticket holder for well beyond the three (?) year requirement to join the new trust but have never heard a peep out of them. Should I have?
  6. This is the actual point of xG it tracks the effective quality of the chance
  7. Did they not change it recently to be paid in chunks through the season to help with cashflow for clubs? I may be dreaming this of course
  8. I think the budget has actually been very generous this season We will have a budget that is certainly in the top 3 in the league and have a squad of players many of whom would be regulars in the Premiership, including ones we signed this summer. We also have a large number of players on 1 year only contracts; I really worry where we will be in May if we fail to win promotion, having to do a similarly sized rebuild job but with a significantly reduced budget. I think the time to act was post-Livi (well actually well before).
  9. 5 minutes of free highlights from Falkirk
  10. I've just cancelled my Jagzone subscription. Only really used it for highlights and now most teams in the division host them free on YouTube (at a better quality as well). https://www.pieandbovril.com/articles/306-championship-tv-highlights-5th-august-2018
  11. It was a training exercise for Celtic. We were reasonably competitive in the first half without coming close to a chance and they obviously had many gears to increase through. Second half was a complete non event. I’m struggling to think of this off target shot on goal let alone Gordon having to do anything except collect a couple of corners Also Gary Fraser should be utterly ashamed of himself tonight. Say what you like about Old Firm fans but smashing a ball full force into a stand full of families from close range is completely inexcusable and very dangerous.
  12. Horrible performance made worse by the amount ‘F****n’ shouts being made towards Lennon and Stokes in the North Stand Really unpleasant day (and season thus far) all round Cannot see any light at end of this tunnel. We are worst in the league on practically every stat going and now find ourselves detached
  13. Surprised there hasn’t been any discussion on here as the Elite academies have been announced for Project Brave Does anyone know what the clubs/Thistle Weirs thoughts are regarding this? I’m sure we will have applied but failed to make some criterio My immediate fear is this puts the academy at a huge disadvantage to the four Glasgow/Lanarkshire clubs who have been successful in terms of player recruitment; why would you not send your kid to Motherwell over us now?
  14. You'd be going in the same direction after he 360
  15. Just the last 20 or so years of games on Sky/BT/Setanta
