#1122094 New Away Kit Vote

It's a bit opportunistic, but so what? It still makes a point, the only way anything bad can really come of it is if the neanderthals of the country come crawling out from their caves to cause a scene about it.


It’s because their support is riddled with prejudice regarding faith yet they’ve continued to ignore it (publicly at least) and are now jumping onto a hot topic in order to make themselves look progressive, forward thinking and open to all, when in actual fact that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Absolutely rotten to the core.

I didn't mean that the Morton board would kill for the publicity as they clearly wouldn't. Morton as a club would though.

Fans on here have cried out for years that we get no publicity, and some of the scraps of publicity we've had in recent years that fans have been happy about are nothing compared to what Partick have got by thinking outside the box and pandering to the media. That's exactly what all clubs our size should be doing as no one is going to knock down our door looking to publicise Morton.

 

Enough of this throwing logic in the face of my bitter resentment.

 

I don't disagree, and it's something I've bemoaned on here for years, although I would argue that their location lends them to that sort of publicity- third biggest club in the big city, just down the road from the old BBC HQ, great Glasgow alternative, birthday caird pish. They clearly have been far more pro-active than us in all my time supporting Morton, and maybe I'm just a thick old bigot by questioning the motives of this one, but if it was any other club than them or Celtic I doubt I'd bat an eyelid.

 

That's a club that's swept their sectarianism problem under the carpet whilst looking to portray themselves as a lovable, inclusive cuddly toy, which is so far removed from reality it's unreal.

 

Whilst our own failings aren't to be forgotten about, I'm afraid I'll not be patting Partick fucking Thistle on the back for being opportunist, rather than inclusive.

Morton would kill for the publicity Partick have been able to generate for themselves the past few years.

 

I don't think they would. If that was the case, surely they'd employ someone who's an expert in marketing and go out and seek such opportunities instead of sitting on their hands, pleading poverty and putting the begging bowl out every so often to guilt trip us into parting with our cash.

Good for Partick Thistle. Maybe for their next trick they'll tackle the rampant sectarianism that's prevalent in their rancid support instead of completely ignoring it and kidding on it doesn't exist.

Surely it’s pretty easy to spot the sort of fanny that “supports” Liverpool/Man United/Chelsea etc. and just steer well clear? We tend to manage it pretty easily up here with Celtic and Rangers fans.

Assuming I’ve not been Gourlayed here, but this article popped up on my Facebook news feed.

Carl Bertelsen has passed away at the age of 81. Sorry to hear it.

Just been to smiths and seen the finished shirt in person for the first time.

I picked up the Argentina style shirt, it’s pretty nice.


Regarding the retro shirts, they’d be far better bringing out one of them a year instead of two. I know a lot of other clubs bring out multiple kits a year, but that’s £120 on three shirts this summer if you want the lot and doesn’t make it right. I’d think they’d sell more of the retro tops by staggering it.

Anyway, when you make your next recommendations the White with the blue sash and the chevron tops would be ideal.

I think that Fort William would be a good day out. We'd absolutely pump them rotten too.

 

I saw us in a pre-season game at Fort William in 2002 and it was a bit shit. Admittedly it was midweek and I was with Gerry though.

 

Craig Coyle bought us a pint, which was good of him.

 

Being selfish, someone like Nairn that I haven't been to would be good.

Not been back to the Darroch since the day of Jim’s funeral when the party we were in must’ve out at least a grand behind the bar only to be told at 6pm that it was regulars only from then on.

Shite way to treat folk that have lined your pocket, said at the time I wouldn’t be back and I haven’t missed it. Likewise the Lighthouse after their carry on with the Dundee United fans in December.

#1121012 Why do you hate Falkirk?

Posted by Toby on 02 June 2019 - 10:36 AM

But yet he brought nothing up with the Chairman about how unhappy he was and engineered a snaking like the unscrupulous rat he is.

Poor wee Ray, begging for forgiveness.

Also, continuing to prove how untrustworthy he is if he has indeed shared some inside info to randoms at a BBQ.

What a fud.


Aye- for the record, don’t think I’m excusing his behaviour. He’s a cunt.

#1121010 Why do you hate Falkirk?

Posted by Toby on 02 June 2019 - 10:23 AM

A mate of mine met Raymond at a barbeque last night and was quick to tell him how he had a group of Morton mates who didn’t think so fondly of him.

His message to the group chat might be of interest;

“He was telling me loads about what went on at Morton and asked me to tell yous that he knows you all hate him but the reason he left was one of the boys involved in the club was an absolute prick and a liar . I can’t remember his name but he is now not at the club either . also that the contract he had was a joke . And he was telling me who he is signing for this Season and it’s bad news for you boys as he is raiding your team . Falkirk are going to be bought over in the nest 2 weeks and he is going to get money to spend .”

So he's not a good lad because of who he plays for? Get a grip.


Absolutely, and who he supports.

Am sure both boys were with First Touch. Morgan was with Rangers. Not sure if Taylor was ever there or went straight to Killie. Killie took some of the areas best talent for a fair few years.
Both good lads who deserve there success. Hard work, dedication, good attitude etc etc.


Morgan’s a Rangers fan who played for St. Mirren and now plays for Celtic. That is not the definition of a “good lad”, fuck him.

Motherwell

Queen of the South

Annan

Dumbarton

 

We're guaranteed Motherwell away, the way the fixtures work, so hopefully Queens and Dumvbarton at home and Annan away. Home advantage against our main rivals for second and a better away day from the two weaker teams is the way forward imho.

#1120481 MCT Ask Me Anything

Posted by Toby on 27 May 2019 - 10:36 AM

Ignorance is bliss. There's an email address you can send emails to with questions..theres twitter and Facebook too.

Seems some just dont really want to support it at any cost, which of course is their prerogative.

Again, its far from the finished product, but here we have a fan (with no ties to GMST) trying to do something on the back of being totally scunnered with Morton. Much like 90% of us.

As far as I'm aware, the usual suspects from the trust who you seem so concerned about aren't involved. Again though, you could email and ask. Or attend the Q&A.


I already have asked, and got papped off to look through Twitter for my answers. When I eventually did, I discovered that there are members of Leadership Team that aren’t prepared to reveal who they are. That isn’t transparent.

Not wishing to blow my own trumpet, but you know both Paul and myself very well. His attitude to Morton is a lot more “take or leave” than my own- I’m far more of a diehard than he is, yet I’m also of the view that there’s something that really doesn’t sit easy with all this.

Why are MCT making it so difficult to find answers to some relatively straight forward questions?
