This season has the same feeling of resignation that there was in the 2001/2 season under Peter Cormack when we had a quickly arranged assortment of journeymen, castoffs, drifters, layabouts, youngsters and complete shite masquerading as 'seasoned pro's'. That was perhaps acceptable back then given the nature of what we had just experienced/survived, and nobody really expected us to do anything that season.
If we survive relegation this season, then it is nothing short of a miracle. We are fucking shit.
Out of interest what makes you say this?
Met Jai a few times when he played with us and he always took the time to stop and speak to me and my boy.
Also when he was fit he was a very good player for us. Not what we are looking for just now but I wouldn't mind him coming back.
I did note from reading Twitter this morning that the attitude of the Celtic support appears to be along the lines of “we’ll not be lowering ourselves to the level of the Rangers fans by mocking them over this latest development”.
Basically, “we’ll make you bloody sure that everyone knows we know all about it, but won’t be seen to be loving every single second of it because that gives us the moral high ground; similar to how our party songs at games aren’t actually sectarian, but you get the hint. Nudge nudge, wink wink”.
Fooling absolutely nobody.
That's a bit of a strange reading of the situation. I think it's more akin to Myra Hindley and Rose West arguing over who is the better person.
The minute the patriarch died, the Rae family couldn't withdraw their support fast enough. This is their right, of course, and they are under no obligation to subsidize a hopeless provincial football club until the end of time. But the Rae family, as a group, really haven't displayed any of the attributes you're talking about here. DDF did, but at the cost of the club's long-term stability. Crawford I have some sympathy with, as he's left holding the bag and, to be fair to him, he's at least putting in the hours. The rest of them are presumably in on this "stop asking for us to run Morton properly or we'll sack everyone" harangue. They can fuck right off. If they inherit the company they can inherit the decisions that got us here, NONE of which are the fault of the Morton support.
Ysee, there is an element of the 'natural order' of things when Liverpool, Manchester United or Arsenal win the league, which I find easier to accept regardless of whether or not I like them. Man City not being shite and getting pumped all the time kinda goes against the natural order of things, which I find difficult to accept. I'm a traditionalist.
Still, it's nothing that a huge recession which cripples the Islamic world wouldn't cure.
Landlords, of any and all description, are scum of the earth.
I'm sure most do. But I'm also sure most renters would rather be able to afford their own property than be forced into paying a small fortune every month to an industry that exists primarily for the rich to ring-fence their wealth in the easiest, most hands-off manner possible.
Scum of the earth was harsh. You can't blame individuals for seeking to increase their lot.
