Fir Park for Thrills

Mortifed as I am by Motherwell's current schoolboyish defensive frailties, there's no doubt that if you're a neutral, Fir Park is the best place to spend your Saturday afternoon cash at the moment. In our last five games (four SPL matches plus our final pre-season friendly against Queen of the South), Motherwell have lost at least four goals on four occasions (and past three different goalkeepers). Even more remarkably, we've scored four goals ourselves in two of those games as well-- in a 4-4 draw with Celtic, and yesterday's unbelievable 5-4 defeat to Dundee United. A massive early-season injury list hasn't helped, but at least the coaching staff of Terry Butcher and Maurice Malpas must be feeling it worse than any of us long-suffering fans, having been two of the best defenders in Europe in the early 90's.
