#1116401 Falkirk v Morton 20/04/19

Posted by Toby on 20 April 2019 - 12:16 PM

Regardless of what's went on this season and how we feel towards the management and board etc, it’s imperative we give the team our full backing to go out and nail these **** today.


Aye, the inquest can come later. Today’s a day for us all to pull in the same direction. Let’s get these insufferable c*nts buried.

We’re Greenock Morton, and in spite of everything, we’re better than THEM.

It’s got the potential to be one of our best ever days following Morton, but also the potential to be one of the worst.

Considering how bad a season it’s been, and all the horrendous sub plots that has gone along with it, someone has the opportunity to make himself a hero who won’t be forgotten about for a long, long time. Here’s hoping they do it.

Just win, Morton. Just win.

#1116154 Falkirk v Morton 20/04/19

Posted by Toby on 17 April 2019 - 12:04 AM

There's not a chance he won't want us to win. If JJ drops him for Saturday, we lose and then he recalls him what message does that send to the player? I dont trust you Michael but going to help save my job now? They're better having a confidential chat and putting out some s***e excuse if Tidser admits to feeling conflicted in any way.


I’d suggest the relationship between the two is pretty fraught anyway after Johansson’s idiotic insistence on not picking him a few months back, and if Tidser has any doubts I wouldn’t expect him to feel his manager’s the sort of guy he could trust with making up a wee phantom injury or something.

He’s already torn into his team after last week’s defeat without at any point acknowledging his role in the whole debacle- why would anyone think for a second that Tidser’s conflict of interests wouldn’t be anything other than a ready made excuse to exonerate Johansson from blame if the worst happens?

Another point that I haven’t seen raised- when was the last time anyone saw any sort of interview with him? Jonathan Mitchell’s last one after the 0-0 Dunfermline game? I noticed Kenny Crawford interviewed Goodwin and Andy Graham last week, and Greg Kiltie this week, alluding to his chat with Johansson in the interview, but no actual interview. Is he refusing to stand in front of a camera? Is Crawford (who seems to be at just about every Morton game these days) not prepared to ask him difficult questions? I’d expect the manager of a club that’s stuck right slap-bang in the middle of a relegation battle to be addressing the support’s concerns and giving us some crumb of comfort and reassurance that everything will be fine, but nothing. We can moan all we want about the club’s failure to communicate with us, but the blame for Johansson’s wall of silence must land solely at his door.

JJ, the floor is yours...

Well, possession given away woefully by Millar... and they go up the park and score. Great contribution.


Something that has never been said to you in all your time posting on this forum, you insufferable f*ckwit.

No wonder your weans hate you.

Pretty much this. It isn’t a dig at Jonathan either, he was incredibly stretched in what he had to do, but the club have zero interest in volunteers. Wether that’s students or folk with actual degrees looking for experience. Given our extremely limited output at the minute, it wouldn’t hurt to try it.


Isn’t this the sort of thing that would be right up your street? Again, not a dig, but you clearly seem to be interested in sports journalism as you always seem to pop up getting interviewed about something Morton-related.

Obviously don’t know if you’ve got better offers but to see someone who is relatively young and inexperienced in that field talking about it as a role for others without even considering it himself doesn’t paint it in a good light.

Did you offer? Do you know of anyone that offered? If yes, was Jonathan made aware or were any proposals dismissed before it got to the stage of telling him?

To be honest though, I’d prefer to see someone working under Jonathan voluntarily on his return rather than taking over for the time being. I wouldn’t see the benefit to either the club or an unpaid individual of taking the job over alone.

#1115975 Which players would you keep

Posted by Toby on 16 April 2019 - 03:36 PM

Lyon stays every other **** that's shat the bed time and again should be punted as far to **** from our club as possible


... is the correct answer.

Lol. Think your head is gone mate. What do you think will happen if we go PT since my idea that it would be a disaster is 'utter drivel'?

I’m not your mate for starters. I suspect the second, more realistic scenario that you painted when you decided to stop screeching like a wee brat who’s just been sent to their room would be far more realistic doomsday scenario that you’ve quickly distanced yourself from after being issued with a telt.

Probably slightly higher crowds than 800 though, when you consider that our crowds are normally a steady 14-1500 even in trying times and unlike Airdrie, we didn’t lose a generation of supporters by moving out of town.

My concern isn’t part time football. If that’s the only way the so be it, my concern is that the current incumbents aren’t capable of carrying it out effectively.

Football now isn't the same as it was in the 70s.

If we go to Part-Time the likelihood of sticking around the seasides is high and with the current toxic relationship between the Board and Fans, I don't think that there would be any real enthusiasm from the fans to do anything. Instead, crowds would dwindle and we would end up in a position where we couldn't go back to FT and, instead, just became Airdrie.


That’s not what you said though- you said the club was gone. Basically just sensationalist moon howling before SpoonTon came along and put you firmly in your box.

Things are very different from the 1970s, but since then, only Airdrie, Gretna and Rangers have been liquidated (Clydebank weren’t) and every one of them was in a far worse nick than we are now.

There may well be hard times ahead, but reel in the nonsense about how the end is nigh.

It will be for away fans as well. There's not a chance Morton would do something like that in such an important game where they were already expecting a large crowd.


Yeah, I know. But they’re c*nts. Let’s not be dishing out credit or benefit of the doubt, here.

Strange decision when there would have been a big crowd regardless of price, but fair play to them.


Plenty.

It was his birthday yesterday, a celebration he shares with Maurice Johnston and one of my Celtic supporting mates. Something I’m delighted to remind said mate about every 13th April.

What did he say?


Replied to Davis Keillor-Dunn’s tweet celebrating their win with a love heart emoji.

Probably pretty trivial in many folks’ eyes, but Jesus, does the guy not have the slightest clue that folk are paying attention to what the players are doing/saying?

We’re going into what should be the biggest game of the careers of guys like Dykes next Saturday and he’s patting on the back folk who are damaging the livelihood of those around him and dragging his employers right in the sh*t.

Absolutely desperate to see them show some character, bottle, personal pride and ability to raise their game for such a big occasion and we’re getting THIS???

Get him to f*ck. Tool of a boy.

#1114066 Strict Liability

Posted by Toby on 27 March 2019 - 11:22 AM

To play Devil’s Advocate about home clubs being punished for the behaviour of away fans- Morton failed to control the Falkirk support the other week when Zak Rudden scored by not policing the away end sufficiently. Of course more blame should be apportioned to Falkirk for the behaviour of their fans, but to say Morton have made no failings there would be completely wrong.

On a side note, I’m interested to see Partick Thistle are in favour of strict liability. I wonder how they’d react to a points deduction for their fans chanting “f*ck the pope and f*ck the queen”.

Sheffield Wednesday looking at Stuart Findlay with a view to a £1 million offer.

Who was it on here that said he’d never do much with his career, Colin Darroch?
