MCT is a new management/ownership model for the club.

I am more than happy that the ongoing review of operations has ruffled a few feathers as I would like to think our contributions are not just supporting the same old strategies and business practices.

As with all takeovers there has to be change and removal of deadwood while bringing in new blood.

No great beef against David Mc it has been a difficult job, one where I am sure he has had to cover much more than his job description but all employment contracts normally include and what ever additional duties which seem reasonable. So with Covid and Furlough that just about means doing everything.

Sadly he should man up and accept the challenge, will not greatly effect his reputation,  as new brooms generally appoint new CEO's or as they say put their man in charge.

Leaked reports won't be attractive to new employers.

Fair enough. Let's get the outlandish guesses started. My guess is that we've spent the Scottish Government grant money on magic beans.

Quite a lot of assumption that he actually wrote and then leaked the letter. I find that a bit hard to believe 

Hasn't he also got a fake twitter?

Not sure how you can read that Tele article and not come to the conclusion that it was him that wrote it. Parts of it are literally first person around the CEO role.

I'm not sure how you drew from that press report that McKinnon's issue is with the Raes tbh. 

Contrary to the claim made by the mimsy, bastard, quisling leak fuck - whoever he/she is - MCT board members are not there by dint of their mere '700 members' - which is oh btw half of the football club's core support - they are also there as capital investors in a failing football club over the past 18 months. Just like any other external investors, they have every right to be at the table - far more than some gobshite executive who was last spotted beforehand at that always ship-shape outfit Dundee.

 

I'm not saying it's solely with the Rae's but the parts where it mentions "proper payment of contract", "CEO contract was with the Chair personally on behalf of the club" and then talk of going to the press to discuss the running of the club being embarrassing for the Rae's seems to hint there's a big issue.

I'll not be sad to see the back of MacKinnon but I hope that if he does go soon he shines more light on the shambles that the Rae's have brought on the club

here today, gone to hell

Takeover can't come quick enough to allow the Augean stables to be cleaned out.

I really am beyond tired of the absolute circus we are at board level. The complete gutting out cannot come quickly enough.

Bit of a damp squib. Morton being run by shambolic amateurs is hardly news of the century and some tawdry squabble between the CEO,  Chairman and the prospective new regime doesn't change anything materially.

In terms of integrity I know who I trust.

Only bit worth any intrigue is the bit about a player being told about his likely role going forward. Assume that's one of the senior players in the interim management team. Millar for manager next year?

I'm almost relieved at this article!

It's nothing new and actually the sort of thing we have come to expect at Cappielow. The current ownership probably can't wait to relinquish control of the club and the sooner that happens the better. It's clearly a millstone round Golden Casket's neck. As for the CEO, going by his CV, he will surely have no bother talking himself in to another job at another provincial club. 

Then this current Chairman no longer has to go through the motions; something that has clearly been made harder by this pesky pandemic.

Six or seven months from now we'll hopefully have the professional people elected from and by MCT running the show. Most importantly, I think we may be able to expect reliable, professional communication with the fanbase. We're used to false dawns supporting Morton but this has real potential. Even the issue of GC hanging on to Cappielow, I believe can be resolved

So somebody's had one too many xmas sherries and let their fingers do the talking. I was expecting an injury to McAdams or a covid outbreak. All very underwhelming.

I think Netflix and the like missed a trick not commisioning a series on Morton. Every series would end on a cliffhanger not knowing who was responsible for cleaning the socks next season, which pies would be on sale in the Cappielow gourmet food outlets, who has the key to the executive restroom etc.

MacKinnon probably has a point about director "interference" and in general the place being a mess, but let's face it, that's been the modus operandi at Morton for ages. Much like in the case of his namesake Raymond, his legitimate grievances don't come close to justifying either his own performance, or (IF he wrote this document) his conduct.

It just cements the major underlying points - that the Raes need to get out yesterday and that MacKinnon isn't fit for purpose.

The current Chief Executive knew what like Morton was behind the scenes before he took the job.  Let's face it, the rest of Scottish football already did.

Perhaps at most other football clubs this stuff would be alarming, but as has been stated we’re all fully aware of the bin fire behind the scenes. Nothing the CEO could leak at this point would even remotely surprise anyone, which probably won’t help his case whilst being a treacherous snake.

Ah'm saying nothing.....although it is very disappointing once again.
