It was all talk. The only aspect he followed through on was his man-servant irnbru.

It's his bitch actually.

He’s not been that bad the last few games, not good enough but maybe a spell in the reserves and full time football will help him along as a second choice.

If the second yellow wasn't shown then surely it was a straight red after a booking. Silly boy.

Ooft, someone's hungover and a bit catty this morning :lol:

Very hungover.

Since I live overseas I'm not at the games but from those I talk to, I've not heard him getting a huge amount of pelters.

Still an expert on the game though.

Millar has never been a particularly creative player, I must have missed his years of him carving teams open with his passing! He had a terrible first half today, did better in the second.

Nesbitt was excellent, if a bit greedy... could have played in others a couple of times. Lucky to have him.

We’re a few players away from having a decent team. Manager knows it, everyone knows it, obviously all down to money the quality of player we can bring in.

Shut up.

#1125535 New Catering

Remarkable that Golden Casket can sell sweets in Iraq, yet Morton continue to make an arse of selling the most basic things, e.g. match tickets. If GC are cutting funding to the club, perhaps they could share some of their evident expertise to help it raise its own money.

That’s what they employ a ceo for. The last one obviously failed with a lot of these things so let’s see what the new one does.

#1125449 New Catering

Posted by irnbru on 08 August 2019 - 12:09 PM

As mentioned above, I don't think Morton benefit from that in any substantial way. Matchday catering is a captive market so USPs don't really come into play. When I'm getting something to eat at the game my concerns are product range, price and taste. I don't care where it comes from.

It’s not so much at the game it’s more the whole selling elsewhere and making something unique like Kilmarnock did and a bit of money through that. Obviously it would need to be good too but having it as a joint venture where it’s a Greenock football pie or something could have worked.

Brownings new suppliers of catering at pie stalls.

New creations such as the 'Morton empire biscuit' and 'cappielow pie' on offer. Essentially the trademarked Killie Pie in new packaging.

A welcome addition.


I really dislike Aulds but think we’ve missed a trick by not using the whole Greenock thing to our advantage.

That said, the food will be much better and I’m sure they invented the Killie pie so it might work out ok.

I dunno about that, but the fact that it's billed as a chance to hear "the five talk about their careers to date, and their aspirations for the season ahead and beyond" and is hosted by some guy off the radio with no connection to the club does make it sound as if it's intended as a "look, they're great, ain't they?" affair rather than as an evening of serious explanations, justifications and interrogations.

The fact that our esteemed chairman isn't involved says a lot.

I think Rae has been pretty open to questions and been available at things previously so wouldn’t read too much into it.

The ceo for most organisations will take the flack (and praise) for most things anyway.

Where was your constructive criticism under the previous regime? I think I preferred your North Korean persona.

I’ve said on here I didn’t mind Hawke but thought he was better with ideas then actually following them through and being a leader so the role probably wasn’t suited to him. Hopefully the new guy makes more things happen more successfully but I’d still like to hear what he’s actually doing.

It’s not a criticism anyway, it’s more curiosity to see what’s going on.

And he did this, two weeks ago:


We don't need another rentagob.

Aye a few soundbites without saying much about what he's doing. Like I said it would be quite nice to get an update especially when a lot of people haven't been happy with how the club has been run over the last few years.

The last fucking thing we need is more interviews. He's only just spoken to the Telegraph in the last two weeks, perhaps even more recently than that (forget when exactly.)

Aye, cos 5 minutes out of his day to update on what's being done is a lot to ask for.

I'm not exactly calling for his head, just saying it would be nice to here.

It must be hard work being as angry as you are constantly.

This isn't really about getting players in, it's about setting course for a debt free set-up.

It's being sold as 400k towards the first team budget though. If there's no spending of the money people are going to go back to the assumption it's just buying shares and money is going to GC.
