In Topic: Partick Thistle v Morton (proverbial 6 pointer)

Yesterday, 10:09 PM

Happened twice in the same season -

7th Sept 2002 - Morton 2-3 St. Mirren (Hoppy scored our 2nd) and Faroes 2-2 Scotland (this kicked off when our 2nd half started) Not a good day.

29th March 2003 - Gretna 0-1 Morton (Eddie Annand) and Scotland 2-1 Iceland (Kenny Miller got one).

Three times that season. Morton beat East Stirling 1-0 at Firs Park the same night Scotland lost 2-0 to the Republic of Ireland at Hampden in a friendly.

Morton played Alloa on 12/11/05 at the same time Scotland played the USA at Hampden. I went to the Scotland game whilst the rest of our regular group at the time went to the Alloa game.


ETA:

I'm sure there has been a more recent club v country clash that coincided with a Scotland away tie.

Have you seen this forum or twitter over the last few weeks?
He has had loads of criticism and rightly so.


It's all pretty tame in comparison with what JJ got from here.

There is something about Davie Hopkins demeanour which says he cannot be arsed with this Management lark. He has let decent players go and brought in ringers. Team selections are frustrating, confusing even, and morale around the place is at one of its lowest points since the Hugh Scott era.

Maybe he'll go on to manage Albion Rovers or Queens Park and prove he is a mastermind tactical genius and that Morton didn't deserve him, but overall it isn't working out for him here.

Feck all to do with Rangers or his Mrs.
Football and tactics were just as shite as they are now for long long spells last season.
Just because Hopkin is making a cunt of it, doesnt take away from the fact that JJ did too.


Why is Hoopy getting such an easy time of it in comparison to JJ then?
