Fucked if I'm buying a season ticket next season to watch young Alexander playing a centre forward.

 

After all the ‘the Easdales are meddling with managers over their boy!!!11!! rumours we’ve heard this season, isn’t it odd that despite several Football Manager regens getting places on the bench throughout the season, even while there have been times we’ve only had one or two fit centre forwards available, even when one of those centre forwards has been someone as obviously out of his depth as Andrew Dallas, Alexander Easdale has never even been given a place on the bench once?

 

It’s almost as if it’s completely fabricated bullshit, particularly when it’s coming from someone who routinely bends over backwards to defend the current board.

Posted by vikingTON on 18 July 2018 - 06:19 PM

Keenan however, is clearly scrambling for all sorts of Scott McLaughlin-esque relevance with the Morton support with that sort of tweet.

Let’s stop talking about them and keep them irrelevant.

 

Disagree with this approach for two reasons.

 

i) This isn't some generic, shit 'bantz' between fellow footballers in a dressing room - this is a couple of senior, washed up, crap failures with a snickering bellend like O'Ware in tow trying to call out a player at the very beginning of their career for a lack of professionalism - a player who they almost certainly have had no meaningful interaction with. Tumilty himself probably doesn't need anyone to give him hauners against that job lot, but their behaviour should publicly be called out to highlight the players involved as arrogant cretins. Perhaps a negative storm on social media will affect their future employment chances or, at the very least, stop them from getting the type of attention that the likes of Keenan really crave - being treated as a fascinating 'personality' of lower league football as opposed to just being a complete and utter moron who stunk the place out.

 

2) Ignoring the comments is also boring whereas The Famous reducing Keenan or McAnespie to a frothing mess via social media trolling would be both fun and piss-easy to accomplish, because they're quite clearly thick as fuck.

 

Get them hounded.

Ten years on, and after spending the whole season in the play off positions without threatening to actually win the league, former manager Jim McInally's Peterhead fail spectacularly at the first hurdle once we get down to the nitty gritty. Can't think where I've seen this story before.

 

Another play off failure for oor Jim, better hope there are no sectarian bigots that are losing their patience in the Peterhead support.

 

Fantastic :D .

Duffy was moaning about there not being a manager's office, so maybe Hopkin is meaning along those lines with team meetings, video analysis etc all happening at Cappielow. 

No idea if that's the case now or not, right enough.

 He needed somewhere to compose his weekly thoughts about celtic in his column in the Sun .

Good luck to Duffy is what I say. Took us to the playoff and Hampden and seems a decent guy. He gets the Partick job then good luck to him.


Nah- I liked him too, but f*ck wishing a guy who could be going to one of our direct rivals well. especially a horrible wee club like them.

We’re Morton fans, not Jim Duffy fans. Hope he has a nightmare and they go down in the play offs, joining those peasants from Grangemouth in League One.

#1093968 The KKK Bin Pub Review Thread

Posted by K K Kelbie on 13 June 2018 - 07:34 PM

The KKK Bin Pub Review #5 - The Thistle Bar

 

Firstly, readers who aren't clued up on the comings and goings of Greater Greenock's thriving bin pub scene will be wondering: where the **** is 'The Thistle Bar'? 

 

A: The Thistle is a bin pub on the site of the former Lynedoch Bar, which did a Rangers after either i) sectarian-based violence in the premises or ii) running a series of 'special' opening times and being caught by the pigs a few years ago. It doesn't open for the new-fangled 'derby' matches involving the bigots - which leaves this magnificent bin pristine for the rest of us during the year. 

 

64759_31753de3.jpg?w=2

 

43322741.jpg

Good: As the picture suggests, the owners of The Thistle are trying very hard to make it something more than a bin pub - a super fun karaoke bar to be precise. But just like you can't take the Big Mags effect out of a Raploch wean, you can't take the 'bin' out of what used to be the ****ing Lynedoch either. When popular with the locals, the pub feels like its always one spilled pint away from a mass rammy. Which is exactly how it should be. 

 

The owners best intentions pay off in the service, which is undoubtedly the best available even by Greenock's magnificent standards in watering holes. Big boy measures of Smirnoff cost a mere £1.50 with pints at £2.50.  In return, guests are able to watch the football on Sky as well as BT Sport without having to use some buckshee box that the owner of the pub took out of a skip the night before, as well as having use of a pool table. At the moment they're flogging Tennents at £2 a pint and a Glens with dash for £1.40 - making it by far the cheapest pub in the town that doesn't serve Tiger.

 

Bad: Nothing to report from the official KKK visit. 

 

Mixed: The pub doesn't have an authentic wine list - El Dorado or Buckfast in their rightful storage conditions - but it does offer the inferior, English swill as part of a Bucky-bomb for £1.50. The official KKK Bin Pub Guide is agnostic about this situation. 

 

Rating: 3Ks out of 3. Offering all required amenities for a low price, big measures and a taste of malice in the air, The Thistle wins a hearty KKK stamp of approval as a bin pub. Anyone who chooses to trot along to the James Watt or even worse, that Tail of the Bank monstrosity instead of taking the brief detour up to it from Greenock's Golden Mile needs to take a long hard ****ing look at themselves. But the owners of The Thistle are making an effort - which means that for all its impeccable bin qualities it hasn't built up the character features that separate the best bins of all from the rest. Close but no cigar.

#1090588 The Big 2018-19 Squad Thread

Posted by dunning1874 on 02 May 2018 - 10:40 AM

I know that part of Duffy's modus operandi is to make the players feel comfortable in their environment, but the fact the players stating their bemusement really begins to point to a club with absolutely no real ambition. If the players believe that finishing 7th is acceptable then we need a manager who's going to give them a boot up the arse.

Yeah, that the players seem to be perplexed by this says a lot about the ingrained attitude in the squad.

I felt there was a telling slip from Duffy on the radio last night. Gary Naysmith was talking about how tight the league is and how anyone can beat anyone, usual clichés, and Duffy came in to mention beating Dundee United 3-0 as an example. He then said words to the effect of 'for Morton to beat Dundee United 3-0, to beat Dundee United at all, but especially to win 3-0 at Tannadice is unheard of.'

If that's a manager's attitude, that Dundee United are basically still a European Cup semi-final stature of team and little Morton can't possibly be expected to compete with them regardless of how bad they get on the pitch, is it any wonder the players downed tools and settled for fourth as something to be celebrated a year ago when we were in a position to comfortably finish second ahead of them?

The plucky little Morton attitude needs purged.

#1116855 Why do you hate Falkirk?

Posted by Toby on 25 April 2019 - 11:06 AM

Right, here goes. Best way's probably to try and split it into categories;

 

The SPL

Falkirk were of course the major victims of the formation of the SPL, and the stadium criteria which came in as a result. They were denied promotion in 2000 after finishing third in the First Division. In reality, they were denied a three-way play off place with 2nd placed Dunfermline and bottom placed Aberdeen for two places in the division. The rules had been set out a full two years before that, and they didn't comply with them. Was it a crap rule? Yes. Did they vote for it? Probably not, no. Did they accept their share of the compensation payout? Undoubtedly, yes. Nothing to complain about. If you object so strongly to the formation of a body that screws you around, don't allow said body to cross your palms with silver.

 

Then, they were subsequently denied promotion in 2003 after winning the First Division title because their stadium didn't comply and they were denied the opportunity to ground share with Airdrie at New Broomfield. Quite an injustice when you consider that the following season, the SPL allowed Inverness to share at Aberdeen. Of course they fail to mention that they were very fortunate to even be in the First Division that year, having only been saved by the demise of Airdrie. Inverness's promotion the following season lead to much bleating about the rules being changed to help someone else but screw them over. However, had the rules not been changed, they wouldn't have been allowed promotion in 2005, and even now, would still not be allowed to play top flight football, as they still don't have 10,000 covered seats in their council bus shelter.

 

The Stadium

The way their local council held them up in selling Brockville was a travesty. How on earth would they want to shaft their local club like that? Perhaps it's because the council actually owned a third of the ground and had a responsibility towards the local taxpayers, and not just the local football club.

 

But even still, throwing their £3.1 million share into the new ground? How much have they put into East Stirlingshire and Stenhousemuir? And they still complain about how the council are shafting them. They're very quick to remind fans of clubs that have been in administration that they paid everything they owed back. That's much easier to do when you have a council that's dishing out handouts to see you through.

 

The Managers

The first Falkirk manager I remember was Jim Duffy, followed by Jim Jeffries, who admittedly put together a very good team, which won the league in 1991. After that, Alex Totten was an absolute weapon. The man was an absolute master at playing the victim. It seemed like a weekly occurrence that you'd put Football First on and hear him bleating about how his "good honest bunch o' lads" couldn't possibly compete in a league with such behemoths as Airdrie, Clydebank and Morton, all of whom were on their knees at the time. There was one time I even remember him complaining that they couldn't compete with us for signings because Dundee United were good enough to give us Stephen McConalogue on loan whilst paying his full wage so we could get a team on the park. Heaven forbid that someone could possibly be operating in more trying circumstances than poor Falkirk. He's a friend of my brother's father in law, who told me a few years ago about his health struggles. It was a bit of a job for me to hide my indifference.

 

After that, there was Ian McCall, who was tapped up by Dundee United, much to their fury. Sound familiar?

 

Scottish born Republic of Ireland international Owen Coyle and John "Yogi" Hughes were next. No prizes for guessing what I don't like about Coyle, but Hughes was a wank. A chest puncher who shouted about "standards" at his club when in actual fact, he ran about with his tadger out on TV in his playing days. Get that hard drive searched, he's definitely OFTW.

 

Pressley was the prick's prick, if he was chocolate he'd eat himself. I doubt I need to go into too much detail about any reasons for disliking him. Most will feel the same.

 

Houston never bothered me too much, but he is a beetroot faced wall-puncher whose time here hasn't endeared him to me.

 

Hartley I didn't mind until his outburst about the 10-2 game. Taking over at Them just cemented my disdain for him.

 

Then Raymond. Rat.

 

The Fans

What a shower. My two particular favourites on P&B are roman_bairn and Gaz FFC, but they're not alone. Pair of bell ends. Like others, the Marino Keith game was significant in forming my opinion of them. The atmosphere was poisonous that day. Brockville was never the most welcoming either, although much more enjoyable than their current bus shelter. I particularly remember the last ever visit there, a 3-1 midweek win when we were in the enclosure at the front of the stand and being spat on by the locals was we celebrated.

 

Nowadays they're not the most endearing either of course. I had the misfortune of sharing the train to and from the 1-0 win in October, and whilst they were no worse than myself and my mates have been, but I'm prepared to be a hypocrite on this one. They were bastards.

 

All week I've thought about how miserable Saturday's win would've made that fat, specky, Peppa Pig lookalike moron with the lilac Stone Island jacket that was goading everyone in the Norseman before the 1-1 game. It's given me a warm glow inside, get it up him.

 

The Taboo Subject

It's been alluded to elsewhere on the thread, but I'm not prepared to give my opinion on Falkirk's role in The Taboo Subject on a public forum. Those who are friendly with me will know.

 

There's probably more, but that'll do for now.

Jenkins not in the starting 11: P16, W1, D6, L9
 
I’m sure that’s just a coincidence though and he definitely wasn’t carrying us by virtue of being the best midfielder at the club by a mile.
