#1130577 Morton team of the decade

Posted by Toby on 21 November 2019 - 09:34 PM

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.


Fantastic :D .

A Celtic fan from a Celtic-supporting family in G. Greenock, who claims to have a soft spot for the local ‘wee team’ like Morton, describing this humdrum tale as ‘my unique upbringing’ is one of the most unintentionally hilarious things ever posted on this forum btw. Up there with Salty’s girlfriend status updates.

#1131950 Championship 19/20

Posted by EanieMeany on 06 January 2020 - 08:21 AM

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.

#1129858 Time To Go, Hopkin

Posted by vikingTON on 01 November 2019 - 11:19 PM

This is an abysmal standard of division where fine margins decide the outcome of a lot of matches. There are three areas where Hopkin is quite clearly costing us those points right now:

Transfers - tasked with building a small and versatile squad with reasonable quality, instead we’ve got a bloated mess that looks like a 14 year old playing Football Manager. Ramsbottom; Livingstone; McLean; van Sheik; Muirhead; King; Orsi; Blues are all either not good enough, unnecessary or have simply been removed from the face of the earth already. Even Dundee United would struggle to carry so much waste in their squad - under the club’s current circumstances, it is suicidally inept to do so.

Team selection - even now Ramsbottom and Muirhead are starters, while Salkeld was out in the cold until just a week ago. He simply doesn’t know his best formation or starting eleven.

Game management - Whatever tactical gameplan Hopkin wants his team to do is only implemented for brief periods, there’s no concerted pressing as he claimed would be the plan when appointed. The failure to use substitutions effectively has assured that we’d drop all six points from our last two games alone.

A merely average manager with the resources and choices available to Hopkin - as set out above - would have us comfortably within the midtable pack right now. I’m not expecting a team of world beaters, but we’ve easily left 5-7 points on the table at this point in the season through poor management. And there’s no reason to think that won’t become 15 or more by May, which would be fatal to the club’s Championship status without a change.

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.

#1093968 The KKK Bin Pub Review Thread

Posted by K K Kelbie on 13 June 2018 - 07:34 PM

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.

#1133608 Morton Steward 'allegedly' assaults young QotS supporter

Posted by vikingTON on 14 February 2020 - 12:36 PM

The more you think about it, the more you realise just how thick Zhivago must be to think that *literally no one* has the right to eject someone using physical force from a football ground other than the police, who probably don't attend the majority of those held in the SPFL anymore. How on earth would the grounds be safe in the event of even a minor disturbance or emergency?


Clearly he's also never been to a pub that isn't the fucking Cafe, any large music event or a nightclub either, seeing as people getting huckled out the door is a standard part of the job for licensed stewards, with no 'breach of the peace' reason ever being required.


What a fanny.

Exactly what should’ve been done the first time, but glad we’ve at least avoided another humiliation.

Aye, all things considered it was a thoroughly enjoyable night.

We were at it from the off, the result was never in doubt, it was a new ground to visit for a lot of the (very big, in relative terms) travelling support and the club did some good PR work to get folk a bit more onside with them.

Was well worth the day off work :).

Shocking how bad our ‘Team of the Decade’ looks.

Not really one outstanding player there. Sums up the last decade really, absolute mediocrity.

Bachirou the only player that went on to play at a good level (don’t count average clubs in the SPL as a good level).


Barrie McKay, Stuart Findlay and Lawrence Shankland all went on to play for Scotland, you insufferable fuckwit.
