Time to be strong at Fir Park
Updated Wednesday, 4th June 2008
Today's report that Motherwell have turned down a bid for Mark Reynolds from Rangers will be welcomed by Motherwell fans. At the same time it reminds us that there is an ever present threat to our hopes of building a team which can deliver success rather than survival.
A report in the Record suggests that "Rangers last night failed in a £1million swoop for Motherwell defender Mark Reynolds".
John Boyle has managed to secure the services of Mark McGhee to lead us into our European year and now it seems that a big money bid has been rejected. All of the current squad are available, with the possible exception of Ross McCormack.
The signs suggest that we are, in the short term at least, going to reject the notion that we are 'a selling club' and reverse the trend in order to maximise the opportunities which season 2007/8 delivered.
It is a good time to be a Well fan and we can only hope that the club stands firm in the face of big money offers which will appear before the transfer window closes at the end of August.
Season tickets will be on sale from next week and the best way to show our thanks for last term's wonderful entertainment and our commitment for next season's challenge is to give the club record sales in the run up to the first kick off in August.
