    I love him, but I think he is *. He has never been a natural athlete and has been burnt out over the last few years. Now is the time to sell. There's no room for sentiment here.

    Are there things / players / management at the club you like just now?
    or am I getting you mixed up with another miserable *?

    Where did I say I didn't like Rogic? I have no idea, I get the impression you may be easily confused.

    I doubt he is happy with his own performance. The debate is whether we can get him back to his best here. I don't think we can, but I would love to be proved wrong.

    I think if we give him support, that is: players around him who can both complement his style and easily slot into his position when he's out of the team, then he'll do well. But never as a 60-game regular. I've come to the conclusion that he just doesn't have the stamina to last over the course of a season so we need to be prepared for long periods without him.

    Incidentally, I'm only noticing it now, but that is the best sig I've ever seen on here. Well done.

    Aye, no chance of that.

    In the past 3 seasons, from 38 possible league matches each seasons he's played - 22, 23 and 21. He's essentially missing a third of our league campaign on average.

    We badly need another natural number 10.

    I thought Armstrong did wonderfully in there during the Invincible season.

    Maybe not as inherently skillful at Rogic but was certainly very effective. Great runner, great shooter (either foot) good vision and a good strong take-no-* mentality.

    I hope we try to sign someone with those qualities. I'd also be keen to see Paddy Roberts try that role out sometime.

    pls

    Sure I saw £4m being mentioned, in regards to Paddy? If that's all they want, we should be all over it.

    Could go with a diamond next year in certain game's when likes of Forrest need a break or switching it up..

    McGregor sitting
    Box to box midfielder and Christie
    Shved at the tip

    Something like that in some game's..

    I’m sure Roberts played in the ten here once or twice and wasn’t effective.

    I don’t see the point of moving him out of his natural position, one of his best attributes is committing defenders and going by them and that’s a lot easier to do when you’re playing wide.

    My hope is that since he had such a poor season in Girona, no EPL club will want him.

    There are serious mitigating factors for his being poor out there which don't apply in the SPL, so I'd still take him no problem. 4m would be a bargain.

    This. Was a big clamber for it to be tried and when it was it took too much away from his natural game. He’s a wide player who does his best work cutting in.

    Far as Tam goes, he’ll be back scoring big goals in big moments next season. He’s too good not to.

    Turnbull looks good and I'm no against signing him but let's get real......I wouldn't sell Rogic and replace him with Turnbull as our number one 10..

    Madness..

    Have you seen the highlights of Turnbulls goals I think this boy is going places he scores from outside the box and inside the box and think this boy will be a better player than rogic.

    He looks a player and aye I've seen him a good few time's now but he's nowhere near Tam's quality..

    If we're punting Tam then we need a ready made replacement of quality..

    Turnbull could be that and is promising, but has a way to go. Only been on the scene 6 month and there's much bigger pressure and demands playing for us than Motherwell..

    Well just because he plays for Motherwell don't put the guy down and look at the players we signed in the past from Motherwell Joe McBride ,Dixie Deans, Andy Walker ,Brian McClair .
