Is uninformed speculation any different from curtain twitching pish?
Uninformed speculation is pretty generic stuff. Curtain twitching pish on the other hand currently involves local sweetie women making up utter nonsense conspiracy theories about 'thu Eeezdales' as some sort of minor Death Star determining all at the club; including apparently removing two Morton managers/coaches in the last 15 months because they wouldn't play their nephew. Who has yet to actually play for the first team despite Reece Lyons and a dozen others from a gubbins youth setup making the cut ahead of him in the same time period - funny that!
The same mechanism showed its hand during the 03-04 collapse and even appeared towards the 12-13 campaign ('the club didn't want to get promoted to the top flight for the first time in 30 years 'cos... reasons). Most clubs from provincial areas of the country experience similar issues but given the unusual strength of local identity - not least judged by the relatively huge readership of the Greenock Telegraph - I'd argue that we're more susceptible to it than most. Curtain twitching is a prolific local industry.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..
So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are
