Quantcast

Knowing your limitations

1188

Rumour has it that prior to their play-off second leg against Hamilton Accies last season Terry Butcher spoke to his Hibs players about their prospective lap of honour.  It was fatal.  Two goals up from the first leg away from home, he thought the job was done.  Hibs were relegated despite having fourth highest wages in the division.

Scottish football is more competitive, healthier, than most would give it credit for.  As yesterday’s Scottish Cup Final demonstrated.  Two towns, emptied of most able bodied adults, urged their team onto what would be an historic win, whichever way it went.

John Hughes is a very modest man.  He speaks highly of his peers and considers himself someone who does the obvious things thoroughly.  Maybe knowing your limitations is the first step to achieving greatness.  I was delighted for him.  His predecessor at Inverness, Terry Butcher, flattered to deceive.

    The amounts of long balls being played in this game is unreal. Foster is absolute gash.

    No wonder Motherwell finished second bottom.

     

     

    They are pathetic.

    Hope your podium is a good omen to keep Sevco where they are

  7. Oooooft…

     

     

    watching a team that I detest, who contributed to one of the worst days in my life of going to the football… followed by fans that are totally vile…

     

     

    I feel unclean even saying this… but… come on Mothersmell !!!

  8. the long wait is over on

    Motherwell like rabbits in the headlights – don’t seem to know what to do here.

  9. Well were pretty pash for the first 25 in the first leg, can only hope they find some form soon, this is woeful!

    gerry,

     

    Motherwell are trying to hang on to what they have.

     

    Either that or they are that bad the Huns can pin them back easily.

     

    They have got to try and get forward.

  11. 32 red they must be called, after data base search it’s the best I can come up with

    How much more time has the ball spent miles in the air as opposed to on the grass here? Dire football. Tense, but dire.

  13. I reckon there’s going to a couple of sending offs. Definitely going to kick off
