    re: McCall resigns

    If you're going to have a pop at a post then why not justify it first time round FFS.

    FYI. I didn't say we were 2nd top when McCall took over, nor did I blame him for the condition of the POD, nor am I reacting to our poor start to the season.

    Moral of the story --- say what you mean rather then try to point score with a sarcy comment from behind a keyboard.

    re: McCall resigns

    I would like to thank the honest,hard working,
    sincere Stuart McCall for 3 magnificent league seasons and wish him well in the future.
    His honesty, I believe, led him to do what I feel is the right thing today.
    Added to the multitude of cup errors of judgement, his calamitous tenure since the final whistle on 11th May would be weighing heavily on his conscience.
    Perhaps, David Clarkson setting a new Premiership scoring record yesterday, tipped him over the edge.
    On the other hand, has Neil Warnock appointed a full time assistant yet? ha ha.

    re: McCall resigns

    I seen Andy Goram peddling the same loyalty myth that im reading on ths thread the other day in the paper.

    He never chose to stay when bigger teams came calling , he was invited and subsequently hot footed it down to Sheffield United for an interview (reportedly returning from a holiday abroad) only to find it a complete basket case of a club at the time and so he came back up the road. Theres been no queue up Edward Street of desperate suitors throwing offers at him and id question the loyalty in going for the interview

    see link below

    It took them months to fill the position.

    As has been previously said though , he took us to second in the league and a cup final , its churlish and maybe even idiotic to belittle those achievments especially in comparison to managers who have gone before .

    Its undeniable that its been plss poor this season though and there have been no signs of improvement since the costly Euro exit to icelandic part timers. - [url=www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba

    You compared him to McLeish - which has no basis in reality.

    The Main Stand point was sandwiched in with football points.

    Moral of the story - don't write complete guff on the Internet without expecting someone to call it idiotic.

    He spoke to Sheffield United and chose us over them - good enough for me. Obviously there has to be some kind of special circumstances or no manager/player is every going to turn down a move like that.

    re: McCall resigns

    In the circumstances he did the right thing. He's a decent honest guy but his time had come. As with Bradford City history will show him to have a bit of a mixed record, but more pluses than minuses. League wise he's done a great job until this season. This season has been shocking. Cup wise a bit of a disaster, with some of our worst defeats on record.

    To sum up he'll be remembered as one of our better managers.

    Since when were comparisons in football taboo ?
    and the POD point is very valid re: the state of the Club.
    So, if you seriously think those issues are "complete guff", then you need to wake up and smell the coffee

    re: McCall resigns

    Comparisons are fine, saying McCall is like McLeish when he took over a mid-table team on the slide rather than a side which just finished third (and had plenty of cash to spend) is plain daft.

    The POD point is completely valid, just somewhat irrelevant in a list which started and ended with on pitch matters.

    re: McCall resigns

    So why compare a whole post to "nonesence" and describe it as "idiotic" rather than highlight the element(s) you disagree with and say why FFS ???

    The Club's very future is at stake here. Emotions will run high and there will be things said that ordinarily may not surface, and there will be fallouts.

    Best if we are accurate in what we say/agree/disagree with and not just let the sarcasm font run loose.

    re: McCall resigns

    Unlike many people on this site (Not all), I did NOT want Stuart McCall to leave. But now that he has, I wish him well. Like all managers he made mistakes, but overall he has seen Motherwell through some of our most successful seasons we have ever had. I am sure we will probably get a "Bounce" when the new manager takes over, but I will say this (and if I am wrong, I will be delighted), it will be a long time (if ever) we finish in the top two again. I hope he gets another job soon. So Thanks Stuart for the last few years, and good luck in whatever you do next.

    Even if you're pleased he's gone, giving two fingers to our most successful league manager since the war is unnecessarily disrespectful.

    The post overall, in content and tone, was idiotic.

    Not at all.

    There's an archive on here that's quite useful if you're interested in not making stuff up in future, go away and look

    In all my years employment I've never had a negative Appraisal, or lost the company money by underestimating my goals/objectives, or by being incompetent, or purchased substandard equipment, or been paid en exorbitant salary, or swan'd off moonlighting when the chips were down ---- not that it's got anything to do with you.

    There are lots of things currently wrong with MFC, but perhaps most disappointing of all is the reluctance of many Well fans to acknowledge this. There is much more to do, many difficult days and decisions lie ahead. Keep yer head in the sand and there will be no Club for future generations to get frustrated with.
