1874-2024 - Our Sesquicentennial

Recommended Posts

Great shout - and now is the time to be talking about it and planning what happens.  I would like to think that there could be a series of things the club could do to commemorate this anniversary while potentially making some incremental revenue from it.  Off the top of my head I would like to see - 

A reference to it on next seasons strip

Collaborations with local businesses to make commemorative editions of their products (such as we have done with Titan Spirits & Shipyard gin)

Maybe some sort of sportsman’s dinner in the town hall

New lines of commemorative merchandise in the Morton shop

Maybe using it as a new angle in the social media content (not complaining as the current standard is very good and has improved greatly in the past year or so) - this might be a lot of work in terms of research but I was thinking that across the season there could be a series of 150 tweets featuring a fact/highlight from each year of the clubs existence.

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

Barcelona at Cappielow. Make it happen (and get some young players on loan from them - Pedri & Gavi would benefit from a season on the Costa Clyde).

"Any nation given the opportunity to regain its national sovereignty and which then rejects it is so far beneath contempt that it is hard to put words to it."

Great suggestions. I personally loved the 1922 kit. How about a season played in a reissue of the 1874 one complete with the shin-scraper long shorts and socks knitted by each player's Gran?

As an added bonus - the Partick hipsters would fucking hate this, because they'd think it was a dig at the clothes they all wear every day.
