  1. Past hour
  2. A: Go to the new shop round the corner and get a takeaway order.
  3. Today
  4. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else. I heard late last night that Gordon "Tiger" Bryce a Morton man through and through and well known local referee passed away yesterday.
  5. Yesterday
  6. That is the very place. Living over in the east there is very little like the old West Station Cafe as there was not the same Italian immigration influence . People also seem to prefer the soulless American style coffee chains rather than the old school cafes. A bit like the snobbery some have towards the traditional and quirky food on offer at football grounds. The pie, bovril, curry chips, pakora etc whether hot or cold or congealed or runny are all part of the football experience especially in the lower leagues. A game on a Saturday without the in ground dining is just not the same.
  7. Jamie McDonagh’s scored the the opener for Cliftonville against Glentoran. The game’s on Sky Sports Football.
  8. Was that the wee place that had all the old Italy/Juventus stuff on the walls? If so that is a tragedy. I used to see a lassie from Greenock and she used to drop me off there for the train, and it was a lovely coffee and bacon roll they made. As a Glaswegian, we're spoilt when it comes to rolls and Greenock rolls in comparison are usually a bit meh, but theirs were particularly good. Places like that are institutions and should be listed buildings. If they can do it to pubs, why not them?
  9. I appreciate this is a bit random but I have just heard the West Station Cafe has shut down as a sit-in and moved around the corner operating as a shop and takeaway. I have so many family memories of this place and it was always somewhere we visited on returning to Greenock. That is part of our pre-match routine out the window. Not being local anymore is there anywhere similar people could recommend for heart-attack comfort food?
  10. Not our ex player but Tony Watt away to Dundee utd this window in a move that all but confirms that Morton are going to win the Scottish Cup in the centenary year of their last win.

  12. Photo - Malcolm MacKenzie Morton Women travelled through to Townhead Park in Cumnock to take on Ayr United in the SWF Championship South. Gary Forbes’ side imposed themselves in the first half, keeping the ball well and creating a number of chances. Despite Morton’s positive performance, the match was goalless at the interval. The hosts defended tenaciously and gaining their reward in the 75th minute, picking up a rushed clearance from goalkeeper Megan Felgate and finishing from close range. This would prove to be the only goal of the contest as Ayr United climbed to 6th place in the table. The result leaves The Ton sitting 9th in the SWF Championship South table. On Sunday 23rd January, Gary Forbes’ side host 7th placed Hutchison Vale at Parklea. Kick off is 2pm with spectators welcome. Speaking after the game, manager Gary Forbes’ showed his disappointment at the result – “Yesterday was a tough result to take given how much of the ball we had and created some chances, we are disappointed in the manner of how we conceded our goal. We will look for reaction from the players this week as we have another crucial game on Sunday.” Morton (4-2-3-1) – Felgate (GK), Cumberbatch, Marshall, Dolan, Hope, McConnachie (C), Seagreave, Hickey (off 46’), Campbell, Darroch, Craig. Subs – Rankin (on 46’). Unused subs - Bryceland, McKee, Hughes, Cains (GK)
  13. Last week

  16. I was at man city vs Chelsea yesterday before watching game on my phone and if Lukaku is worth £90m or whatever then Gozie must be worth at least double that.
  17. Couldn't see anything wrong at the time, nor watching the replays. To be fair to their commentary team even they said that they couldn't see much wrong with it. Didn't stop their tears though🤣🤣
  18. What was wrong with the disallowed goal? Looked to me that keeper bumped into one of our players.
  19. Two cracking goals. Some excellent colourful language from our dugout clearly audible in the video too.
  20. That Ugwu flick for the 2nd gets better with every watch. The fact it's over the head of McGinty too 😂
  21. No replays from the fourth round onwards this season, it'll be straight to extra time.
  22. Agree its a free hit but needs to be our strongest team for me. Give them another game to work together, not like we have a midweek game to worry about. Not had that many games over the last few weeks so fatigue shouldn't come in to it. Fancy us to give them a game too. Sneak a draw and get them back to Cappielow.
  23. I think that there is a bit of a lesson to be learnt here for all involved in football at all levels - gambling is a mugs game, which can lead to serious health and other problems for the players. If football authorities are trying to police the actions of those involved then they should be applauded, however they should to get their own house in order. Football Authorities are making millions from gambling companies, football clubs are making millions from gambling sponsorship, advertising etc. The TV companies that they are selling the broadcast rights to are also making fortunes from gambling too, to the extent that its bloody nauseating for anyone watching games. If they want to address the issues related to gambling within football, stop taking the easy money from gambling companies and stop helping these companies bombard football supporters with betting adverts.
  24. Next week is a bit of a free hit. I actually fancy us to give them a game, but wouldn’t be too fussed to see Muirhead, Jacobs, Garrity, Russell etc in - but we should be all out to be getting folk in the ground for the Raith game, they’re very much there for the taking. Somebody asked me tonight how we were getting on and it’s the first time in years I’ve been able to say “Actually not bad”
