This type of event is normally in the ‘not for me Jeff’ category anyway, but I see that we’ve really doubled down on the ‘fitba da’ target audience this time round. Presumably all the great captains of journalism like Gordon Parks and the Poundland Pulitzer at the Tele were too busy washing their hair that night, which is why Des ‘Gormless’ McKeown eventually got the nod.

Cue hours of Hovis-themed anecdotes from ‘Roughie and Andy’ about that week in December when Morton were top of the league, and bottomless, mealy mouthed platitudes all round about what a sleeping giant we are right now.

VT viewer verdict: worse than an evening with Eddie Cairney.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Peter Martin is a superb host. Sharp as a tack. Des McKeown was very good at a previous one I was at too.

At the end of the day, like them or not, the events are popular and can make 5 figure profits so hopefully they make a success of it.

This whole Ritchie thing is actually embarrassing now. I don't want to have a go at the guy as such, but ultimately he had a very limited career and is very far from a witty raconteur. He's neither got stories nor a personality, yet at every fuckin opportunity he's wheeled out to a big fanfare as if we should all be surprised and awed about it.

I've no interest in hearing about Ritchie which has pretty much been the case for about two decades now. Booooooooring.

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'

I am assuming, based on no evidence whatsoever, that they got a freelancer off Fiverr to do this, and his/her spellchecker kicked in.

Not keen on any of the Bay City Rollers.

They're a bunch of Stoat-the-baws. They'll get caught eventually.
