    Hart shouldve been replaced in the Summer.

    Celtics laziness in terms of recruitment fucks them constantly but then never seems to change. Even under Postecoglu they just let him sign whoever he wanted even if they were shite.


    What sort of board sanctions some signings but refuses others based on their opinions over the manager's?

    If there is investment from someone with no previous connection to the club, the strings that come attached will be the main thing that I would base my decision on. The idea that we would move away from majority fan ownership and then be left in a state in 5 years where the investor walks away and we are left holding excessive debt that was run up during their time would be absolute non-starter for me.  I would genuinely rather us relegated while living within our means and fan owned than spend money we don't have and end up a basket case as were a number of years back.

    I simply don't buy that Motherwell is an investment in the real sense of the word - short of them keeping all our transfer/development fees and us getting lucky with another generation from the academy, the idea of getting a return that would make it worthwhile is fanciful. So if it's going to be a rich guy playing FM24 or even someone who is genuinely just chucking a few quid in for philanthropic reasons - they do it with their money and leave the core of the club in the state they found it.

    Absolutely. I'd rather have a club to support in the Championship than no club at all.

    For what it’s worth, I thought that boy from Sheffield United looked utterly bollocks against Morton. 

    I thought that as well but didn't want to say anything as I'd quite rightly be told he'd had less than half a game of football. But if he's buggered off then he's fair game!

    Completely one-footed and wanted to beat someone several times so he could get it back to his left.

    You’ve got to have a dream, if you don’t have a dream then how you gonna have a dream come true 

    On the other hand we’re now stuck between the implausible dream of closing an 11 point gap on Celtic and the utter nightmare of blowing a 14 point lead over Killie

    Wish us luck

    You need to keep this chat for when you play St Mirren and you can get a contribution from Captain Sensible. That will take discussion to another level (not necessarily higher).

  5. Rangers cancelling the tickets for the Celtic supporters for their upcoming SWPL game due to a 'risk' group of supporters attending. I'm not sure what is more tinpot- cancelling the tickets, a group of fans attending a women's game intent on causing bother or their inability to deal with them.

    Cards on the table.

    I've only seen one episode of Seinfeld in my life. 

    Enough to know the reference related to Seinfeld though which is more than me! I had no idea what they were on about, was assuming it was about some player from hibs or somewhere like that who I'd never heard of. Constanza sounds like a shitey Hibs winger. Maybe Dundee United.

    Really hope the additional turnstiles being opened works as intended. Pretty apprehensive about this given the shambles of the Partick games, and the fact the crowd is going to significantly larger tonight. I will not be taking any chances, probably going to try get there for 7.15 to be safe.


    Otherwise, really looking forward to this. Love the Scottish Cup.

    I appreciate you might not know about the away end but please tell me you're not one of those clubs that open 1 or 2 turnstiles despite knowing there's going to be a good away support (wave to St Mirren).

    Aye, this magnanimity and real scouting isn't what you're after from an opposition manager. You want someone expecting us to do nothing but clog them, get caught out by us passing through them then have an Owen Coyle level tantrum about us being bad physical Morton anyway.

    Buzzing for this. Cold and windy but hopefully not enough to put the game in any doubt.

    Won't put the game in doubt but bad enough to make standing on open terracing/bench seating facing the wind a ball-ache. Bring back the shared shed!

    Agree on Paton...there's certainly a place for him in the squad but if we're playing four in midfield he should be out because he just doesn't have the quality in the final third if advanced and others are better than him if deep.

    I thought Paton was excellent in the second half on Saturday and I can't see him losing his place for this game after that.
