In around an hour, Jonatan Johannson's TPS take on RoPS in a bottom of the table clash. 

TPS are winless in seven, after a brief rally in August, while RoPS have just five points to TPS' 12.

You'd have to think that if TPS can't beat RoPS at home then JJ's job will be in jeopardy.

Mr VikingTON, we the jury accept your plea of guilty to taking more pleasure out of denigrating Greenock Morton Football Club, it’s management, players and fans, than you do in actually supporting the club.

If Morton's goals per game got anywhere close to your riddies per post rate we'd win the championship at a canter.

Regardless of how Welsh plays for Celtic, there's absolutely nothing wrong with saying he was shite for Morton: that's an undeniable fact to anyone with the slightest understanding of football who watched him.

I reckon he might still turn out to be excellent centre back, but he's clearly not a right back and as that's where he played every week he was dreadful. Even in the unlikely event he goes on to play at the highest level and win the Champions League several times, it won't change that fact.

It's amazing how people don't get this. Similarly it's obvious that Barrie McKay didn't try a leg for us and wasn't that good as a result. But he had excellent attributes that ended up serving him well at a higher level. If he leads Swansea/Fleetwood/whoever to a Leicesteresque Premier League title, he was still pretty poor for Morton.

But at least McKay was played in or near his natural position. If Welsh was poor because he was played out of position would you blame the manager or the player? We always seem to target the player regardless.

It's a bit of both. When Ricki Lamie toiled so horribly at left back, Duffy got more of the blame than Lamie did.

TPS thump hapless Rovaniemi 4-1. Nonetheless they remain second last in the table, 4 points behind Haka but with a game in hand.

If they do end up finishing 2nd last, they enter a relegation playoff against the team placed second in the First Division.

FTFY.

🤮

Think we should delete all mention of that and never acknowledge it again.

 

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

Jim Townsend who played for us in the 70s has pased away aged 75.

Great player, always gave his all also played for St Johnstone and Hearts 

A legend with Hearts where he was a very hard but skilful midfielder who scored a few goals. Came back to his home town of Greenock to finish his career.

I still remember a colleague of mine ranting about how good a midfield of Joe Mason and Jim Townsend would be. It almost came to fruition but, unfortunately, Joe left shortly before Jim arrived and my colleague's wish became only a dream.
