And where are these guys playing their club football? Being a fringe Scotland player is not a great achievement these days. They were all loan players too? Shouldn’t even count... I certainly didn’t consider loan players.
In previous decades we had players that went on to play for big clubs in England.
Millar did brilliantly for himself at St Johnstone, the peak of where he was capable of playing. Sadly we got him back when St Johnstone thought he was done... they were correct.
Absolutely none of this is relevant to what said in your original point/trolling attempt.
You said none of them went on to play at "a good level". Three of them have played international football (four if you include that wee rat Bachirou), it's pretty much the biggest honour a player can get in the game.
You moving the goalposts and setting your own wee set of rules as to which player is applicable for what was in actual fact an all encompassing swipe doesn't cut it I'm afraid. No wonder the weans despise you.

Someone on Facebook says they saw him limping at the Tesco petrol station.
You want to have heard his roar when he stopped the pump right on £20.

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.

If it was the case that the team had just suffered another bad defeat and the Twitter account was deluged with genuine abuse every week, you could understand if they went with something like "We understand your frustrations...but foul and abusive language will not be tolerated and repeated offenders will be blocked". As far as I can see the account isn't received a great deal of outlandish abuse though, and even if it was the time they chose to moan is on the back of a rare victory?!
The problem is that it's not just abusive language they're on about, it's any sort of criticism and seems to extend to everything and anything that doesn't meet somebody or other's approval - the tweet says as much, and so do the subsequent blocks.
Fact of the matter is that businesses that are performing as badly as Morton is need to accept that there's going to be a lot of strongly-worded opinions in their mentions. If somebody is repeatedly booting the arse out of it, use the report function and mute them for a while if they keep doing it, but you can't just go banning your customers for complaining.
It's quite astonishing that the club has the nerve to harp on about "constructive challenge". Less than two years ago the chairman was telling us he had a three year plan to reach the top flight and had people buying season tickets off the back of it, only for it to turn out to be a load of either dishonest or incompetent (delete as appropriate) rubbish, and he's had fuck all to say about it since other than to encourage a glorified whip-round to cover his own responsibilities and failings. Fuck that.

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.

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.
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.

No idea but tastier than Burslem lobby I would think. No doubt GG is enjoying eating his humble pie though. That guy knows how to build a career.
Has he told you whether he likes Abba yet, I have him pegged as a Pet Shop Boys fan.
You seem like a bit of a dick.

Pics or it didn't happen.
No, it simply happened. And no one in their right mind would give pictures to a creep like yourself anyway.
Back in your box then.

Another effortless victory for The Clique.

You can't be that good at it if you're still practicing.
You must be an expert at giving Ernie a bawhum by now.

Those ends had been opened before, why do you feel the need to talk shite?
The Ton support was incredible that day! The ends behind the goals had never previously been opened. We filled the away stand opposite the main stand, so they opened one end, we filled that and they opened the other end and we just about filled that too! The team warm up at the time involved running towards the fans, which led to a crescendo which rose as they approached us, no wonder the players wanted to keep it going!

Did any of you get the Daily Mail? Andy Ritchie's the 3rd "My Sporting Hero" Star, after Jack Nicklaus and Sevvy Balasteros! Double pager!
Absolutely not, I’ve still got 6 bog rolls left.

Like Dean, trying to stay away from the obvious ones;
Morton 4-1 Hamilton, 9/3/96 What a fantastic performance. We'd just come off the back of a disappointing week in which we'd lost away to Dundee United and Dunfermline, and lost Mahood and Lindberg for the rest of the season. I can't remember too much of the game, but I'm pretty sure we'd gone a goal behind before a brilliant second half comeback put us back on track. I was absolutely buzzing with Morton as I left the ground that day.
Morton 3-2 Partick, 29/11/97 Other than the Hibs game in 2009, the most entertaining football match I've ever attended. End to end stuff with both teams exchanging the lead before we won it late on when Stuart Gray ran the length of the park to get onto a breakaway, score the winner and send the Cowshed wild. It helped having such a horrible lot on the other side of the fence, too.
Ayr United 1-1 Morton, 18/11/00 Only a few weeks before the club went into administration, and enduring a hellish season to date. Everything that could go wrong did, and we went away to Ayr, who were going well and one of Livingston's main challengers for the title. 1-0 down and heading for another frustrating defeat, Darren Davies swung a cross in deep into injury time and Harry Curran turned it into the top corner at the Railway End and the Morton support went absolutely mental. Brilliant scenes, and one of the few great moments that we managed to get something in the face of adversity back then.
Ross County 1-2 Morton, 25/1/03 A Scottish Cup tie in which we went away to a First Division team and comfortably beat them whilst in the Third Division. Pretty much the perfect away day. A good group of us up on the train with a carry out first thing in the morning, into the Mallard for a few pints, 600 Morton fans making the long journey, Super Alex at the peak of his powers and a cup upset in the pissing rain. Gerry's late dad got a tidy return on 2-1 Williams FGS and gave me a couple of quid to look after the rest of the lads' drinks for the rest of the day (he was too pissed by that point to take it himself), too. The first point that I felt Morton were really on the road to recovery.
Morton 2-1 Ayr United, 1/5/10 Last game of the season, and a three way battle also involving Airdrie to stay in the division. A win would've kept us up, a draw seen us in the play offs and a defeat send us down (in all likelihood, depending on results elsewhere]. 1-0 down after a dreadful first half, we scored two late goals through Stewart Greacen and Carlo Monti to send Ayr back where they belong. Fantastic celebrations when Monti scored, great to see the neds fighting each other on the pitch, brilliant to see Ayr fans crying in the Norseman and best of all, seeing Dean Matthew greeting like a wean on the pitch. GLORIOUS.

I imagine a lot of insurers are about to get absolutely fucking rinsed. Good.
