Palestine and other countries politics are their things atm. Maybe one day


Maybe one day they'll admit to their own wrongdoings first. Small steps and all that.

If there was one club that you would expect to do this kind of publicity-seeking stunt in Scotland, it was bound to be Partick Thistle. Let's face it, they are the club that due to their location in Glasgow's supposedly 'Trendy' West End and their Media-Luvvies/Students/Cosmopolitan status, have always had that stigma about them of being a club for gay males. They won't be ever considered a proper club like the Lanarkshire/Renfrewshire/Fife/Ayrshire clubs or, dare I say it, even the Old Firm, and it's down to the type of people they seem to attract as supporters.
They attract all the wierdo's under the sun, whether it's oddball schoolteachers, young guys who are more camp than Simon from Eastenders, Pot noodle munching studenty types with the physical attributes of Junkies and the manky T shirts to match, wankers with Kelvinside accents, or all of the above.

Rainbow flagging it up is their natural territory. Just like the PLO flag is the Green Brigades. When I saw 'Whitehawk' of Brighton in an early FA Cup round a few months back with their Rainbow Flags and their bentshot supporters going about how 'All inclusive' they were, I knew that it was only a matter of time before a Scottish club done the same, and I could have bet my eye teeth that it would be the cuddly toy that is Partick Thistle.

Thank fuck Morton aren't involved in that shite.

In all honesty, I miss his posts too. One of the things about him in his favour - he was one of the very few capable of thinking for himself, he never had the 'follow the herd' mentality that so many others amongst our support sadly have.

He was into all of this modern man bollocks long before it became trendy. Fair play to him.

#1121912 Morton Etiquette

That may be true of a genuine football fan but certainly isn't the norm. Your average punter down here wears a Liverpool/Man U/Chelsea/Arsenal shirt but couldn't point to Liverpool or Manchester on a map never mind Scotland.


The average Scot wouldn't be able to point out Gloucester or Shrewsbury on a map. Even supporters of big clubs may have an interest in the game outwith the top tier.

#1121900 Morton Etiquette

Morton. Over the years I've had plenty of puzzled looks but I put that down to english folk being a bit thick.


To the contrary I always find that English football supporters tend to have a curious interest in Scottish football, almost in a way that they see us similar to themselves, but with peculiar differences.

Our football culture in this country is something to be proud about, even although it is often derided.

Anyway, I always say Morton rather than Greenock Morton.

It's a lot of money to most people. Still, you have to laugh at those who lose that trying to fight someone else's battles.

Probably. Either that or his groomer will.

Still, it's been a great day all round. And nobody lost £21,000

His knee is made out of Play-Doh. He's a free agent.


That was a waste of a years wage then. No wonder the club is up shit creek financially and whoring itself to local gangsters.

Dropping to League One and to Falkirk in their present state and with The Snake in charge seems like a bit of a gamble even if he is on silly money.
He's gone, we move on.


No we don't. Never forgive. Never forget.

I once had a cow dropped on me by some irate farmers. Never a sheep though.
