The twelfth edition of the Motherwell Matchday Magazine hits the streets tomorrow when Hibs visit Fir Park.
This week, ‘Well gaffer Stuart McCall shares his pre match thoughts, talking candidly about the pressures of management and the pitfalls of making knee-jerk reactions. The former Bradford City boss also looks back at last week’s 0-0 draw with Inverness CT and welcomes new assistant Kenny Black to the club.
[onlymembers]Shaun Hutchinson talks about his return to action last week against Inverness and the frustrations of the last thirteen months in the “From the Dressing Room” feature.
We also have an exclusive 8-page interview with the enigmatic Esteban Casagolda who chats about his first six months in Scotland and his desire to prove he has what it takes to make it as a striker at Motherwell.
There’s a twelve-page section dedicated to our visitors, Hibernian, including a player-by-player account of Colin Calderwood’s side. Peter Elder takes us back through time to recall some of the good and, erm, not so good encounters between the sides and Alan Temple asks – Whatever happened to the Magnificent 7?
We also have two fascinating articles – the first on some of the Scottish Cup horror shows of the last thirty years and the other looking at the blame culture that exists in football.
The latest bout of Brainiacs is the battle of two favourites – Jamie Murphy and Stevie Hammell. Both scored high in their first round matches but who will succeed and secure a spot in the last four? It’s a close one – you’ll need to pick up a copy to see who has scraped through.
And that’s not all… We look back at the 2-0 defeat by Dundee Utd and the 0-0 draw with Inverness Caley last Saturday, there’s an update from the Community Department as well as the latest ticket information for our next six matches.
The programme, priced at £3, will be available in the ‘Well Shop with sellers in and around the ground from about 1pm.[/onlymembers]
