In Topic: Which players would you keep

17 May 2019 - 12:47 PM

Hopkin seems to have been watching half the Morton games in the second half of the season so it's not as if he'll be oblivious to their strengths and (more clearly) their weaknesses. Given that Sir David Irons correctly observed that a dung players could be spotted and emptied within 45 minutes I'm expecting a fairly ruthless cull instead of 'giving everyone a fresh chance' here. They had that already for an entire dung season and quite a few of them have therefore already failed.


Ironically 45 minutes is how long St Mirren took to suss out Dominic Shimmin.

TBH it's pretty Morton to have an extension clause worth an unspecified amount. Another way of phrasing that would be 'not having an extension clause.'

 

Who ****ing knows what's happening.

 

It's possible that it does specify an amount, but it's optional for the player for accept the extension or not.

 

So if the player meets the criteria for the clause to trigger then he's at least guaranteed the security of a contract for next year, but still has scope to seek a better offer from Morton or elsewhere.

Cormack was everyone’s scapegoat until he scored against those b*stards, tbf.


No, it was Cormack Snr the guy had a problem with (he didn’t like junior much either, but that was rational).

Kilmarnock top of the league, eh?

Just think about it, an anniversary dinner 30 years from now and some alcoholic, Ayrshire tramp still whining about a f*ck up with money ten years on from that, whilst his lapdog does the Keystore run for his fags and Thunderbird every morning.

 

I used to sit in the stand with my Dad and there was a guy and his wife, both from Kilmarnock, who appeared behind us from 1994 to 97.

 

Guy was a mentalist and absolutely hated Peter Cormack Snr.   Bear in mind this was the Lindberg, Rajamaki, Lilley, McInnes etc. era where we were going great and playing some of the best stuff ever.    No matter what happened Cormack was getting it, starting from the moment the team (picked by McGraw) was announced.   We'd be comfortably winning and McGraw makes a sub in injury time: "CORMACK!!! You ***ing clown!!!" etc.   His wee wife would be trying to calm him down as he's near giving himself a stroke.

 

Anyway, all throughout the 96-97 season he kept announcing that he'd had enough and was going to get a season ticket for Killie.  Never saw them again after that, so presume that's what they did. 

 

So, anyway, that's the guy.
