The guy wasn’t getting grief for them though. He got taken to task over being a Celtic/Man United fan earlier on, but there hasn’t been anything really critical of the content he’s put out.

 

Cowshed Chris isn't surprised in the slightest though. It's just his way of having a swipe at some of us for mocking Salty after he got a kicking for being a complete fanny.

 

I got a warning a while back after he Lee Wallaced me to the mods. That it got under his skin was an added bonus.

No worries. I’m going to leave this here now. If you enjoy the content then I hope you continue to and if not then that’s absolutely fine too. Here’s hoping for a good end to the season. Mentally I’m beyond done with this now. The links will be on twitter if you want to hear the podcasts but I won’t be posting on here again.

Give up, they are a shower of ungrateful bastards on here and not worthy of the effort your making. An effort that none of them have the balls to attempt.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

You don’t even have the balls to reveal who you are.

interesting that the players (or at least Tidser) was embarrassed by the way the club was being run towards the end of JJ's tenure.

"I remember thinking can we not just do things like other clubs and do things better and whenever something happens at Morton everyone seems to know about it within days"

 

he also cited it as one of his reasons for not coming back even after Falkirk got relegated.

i know majority of people don't like him now but its pretty damming that our joke of backroom was putting players off.

Im making perfect sense, your just not keeping up.

That seems to have improved, and I can't help but wonder if that is a result of a couple of members of the previous backroom staff being given their marching orders. Having a motormouth inside the club, for all we find things out quicker, doesn't benefit the club in any way. Take the Gunning situation in January for example, if that was under the previous regime, we'd have found out long before Hopkin revealed it in the weekly update video. 

You address me by my proper title, you little bollocks!

It’s really not damning given that he then chose - twice - to join the biggest clowncar outfit in Scottish football in recent years. I’m sure Barry Ferguson is doing such a terrifically professional job at his jumped up social club team as well.

 

Every self-serving excuse that comes out of his forked tongue should be filled immediately in the bin where it belongs.

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

I thought that straight away as well. It’s pretty well known that at least one of the previous members of staff who was removed spilled everything to anyone who listened. I had folk in my work who knew that person but had no allegiance to Morton who were telling me things that were going on.

 

I didn’t find the interview “explosive” as the guy made out to be but was certainly an honest interview. Feel a bit sorry for the guy as he clearly regrets a couple of his moves and evidently loved his time at the club overall but it was his call to follow the snake in the end.

Having now listened to part 2, I still don't think that Tidser is a particularly evil or bad guy, but he's really talking some measure of nonsense about Falkirk. He criticizes Crawford quite a bit, most notably for not offering him a contract when he knew that Falkirk were going to make him a pre-contract offer. But Falkirk's pre-contract offer was void upon their relegation; we did offer him a contract after that, but he complained that we did so late in the day.

 

Now, it's not the fact that he criticizes Crawford that bothers me here. It's that when discussing the way in which Ray left Morton, he said it was nothing at all to do with him. That is, of course, technically correct. But if you're talking about Crawford and contracts, and Ray and contracts, you're absolutely remiss not to at least consider this: Falkirk were found guilty of wrongdoing by an impartial SFA tribunal. (Among other things, Falkirk submitted an inaccurate timeline of events to the SFA, with phone calls missed out. McKinnon was not considered a particularly credible witness.) Nobody at Morton was found similarly guilty.

 

In other words, say what you will about Crawford, but he honors his deals. Meanwhile Falkirk don't. Then we get Tidser saying what a well-run, "nice" (his word) club they are, and how he was so happy there and all the rest of it. Are they nice, aye, inducing managers to breach contracts? Are they well-run, aye, being so crap at it that they get fined anyway?

 

edit: and I will say that Warren Hawke, for all his failings, conducted himself impeccably during the McKinnongate thing as well. Which brings me to another point. One of the reasons Tidser says he left is that it was all change at the boardroom, all change at the manager's level. He mentions Hawke by name. Well, perhaps realizing that Falkirk did their utmost to drag his and Morton's name through the mud wouldn't have gone amiss before throwing your lot in with them...

 

He does acknowledge that, with hindsight, he should have stayed, and it didn't work out. But going out of his way to make Falkirk out to be all sweetness and light while criticizing Morton doesn't sit well with me. Yes, some aspects of Morton are a bit of a joke, and he was quite right to wonder, what is the club's actual ambition here. But this treatment was unfair.

I’m glad he’s realised the error of his ways, somewhat.

 

His career at any semi-respectable level of football is finished, the strong bond he had with the club that plucked him from obscurity and gave him a career in the first place is gone - and he only has himself to blame for it.

I prefer my One boat on a shirt.

 

Every one thought we knew the score

Before the game was played

They're so sure,They're so sure

That Morton's gonna throw it away

That they bet on Airdrie

But I know they can play

And Ton fans singing

One boat on the shirt

Renfrewshire Cup still gleamin

All the Saints fans hurt

All the Ton fans steamin

Prefer my own poem, it’s titled The Working Class. But it could easily apply to every single person who attends Cappielow:

 

 

Crisps for dinner and a pint of best,

Our soccer club’s better than the rest.

 

City, United, Albion, Rovers,

Cobbled streets that advertise Hovis.

 

Knuckle-busters, ASBOs, car-park fights,

Poundland, Asda, bingo nights.

 

Matchstalk men, matchstalk cats,

Matchstick dogs, and council flats.

 

Community centres and spray painted swearing,

Harassed policemen and teachers past caring.

 

Unions, strikes, “Everybody Out!”

I don’t want to, you’ve got to, we won’t earn nowt.

 

Cotton mills and cooling towers,

Old tin baths, no power showers.

 

A certain pride, a certain swagger,

A fist, a stick, a gun, a dagger.

 

Giros, glue-sniffing, dogs on ropes,

But I see people, with dreams, with hopes.

 

Thanks for your time.

I listened to that for about five minutes and thought it was repetitive, wondering when the fuck this is going to end but then I realised it was only 30 odd seconds but kept looping back to the start.

 

My thoughts: :cringe:

 

I don't want to invoke another meltdown on here, but it comes across as the type of shite a school teacher would write and narrate to a class full of disinterested kids.

There is no such thing in life as normal.

I think after this is all over Morton should employ him on a permanent basis as their official in house poet.
