  1. I didn’t know home clubs had the authority to prevent their opponents providing radio commentary for games too. If we didn’t block Hearts doing this for the December game we definitely should next month. We’ll be unlikely to gain much from it but if it fucks them over after their behaviour in the summer it gets my vote.

  2. Or they could just play them at 3pm as scheduled. The SFA should be getting told to fuck right off by every single club.

  3. Like it or not, that’s how clubs’ streaming worked before, and will be how it works in the future. If Morton continue their streaming, the caveat will be that it’ll only be available to those outside the UK, as the rules currently state. It’ll probably end up in a loss to continue it, but it’s up to the club to consider if the loss is worthwhile, very much like the issue of match programmes, which I very much doubt are big money makers. I get that it’s more convenient for you in Dumfries to watch a stream than to be driving up to Greenock every other week, but the day we make it acce

  5. Aye, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll boost the budget, though. If Golden Casket are at the helm, it’ll only mean that the money raised will go to the squad, saving GC a few quid on what they had budgeted for in the first place. It’s a “no” from me for putting my hand in my pocket beyond what is absolutely necessary until such time as I trust Morton’s owners.

  6. I think the current squad deserves credit for plugging away from (at least) December while the club was a complete binfire at almost every other level. It could quite easily have turned into a 13/14 style disaster of a campaign on the park as well. However that credit should come with a handshake on their way out of the door at the end of the season and sincere best wishes, rather than a new deal based on solidarity alone. We cannot afford to repeat last summer's mistakes in retaining players who aren't up to standard and particularly forwards who do not score goals: we'll be fortunate

  8. Eye Of The Tiger rings out through the deserted stands. An unmanned camera spins frantically, its sensors caught between the warm-up balls and the bald heads of hopeless substitutes. In a cinderblock dressing room, a young Londoner wonders if he can hop the train. A seagull hefts itself off a cantilever and heads east to the North Sea, where it chooses to die. 45 minutes to go, lads.

  14. It is surely not the role of the SPFL to assist Rangers and Celtic in developing their youth talent? Furfuxsake, they have a big enough competitive advantage as it is, without giving them and even bigger leg up. It will also limit the availability of lower league clubs getting loanees from them. Any SPFL club voting for this should be getting a boot square in the haw-maws from their own fans.

  15. I see the debate about colt teams in the league set up is again rearing it’s ugly head. It may well have been mentioned elsewhere, but I really don’t want to trawl through 55 pages of this thread and whatever others it might’ve had a mention. As our prospective owners, do MCT have a stance on this? And more perhaps more importantly, does Crawford Rae? I mention Rae, as I see the current proposals coming at an opportune moment for Rangers and Celtic, when every penny’s a prisoner more than usual for the rest, and expect he would happily back this idea if it meant he could get his grub

  17. Yep, this is nothing to how it was when Diana died. People openly grieving for a woman they'd never met in their lives. When London Bridge drops, the cry-wankers will be out in force, fuelled by the BBC while Nicholas Witchell masturbates furiously.

  18. Good call. Once McPherson is not offered the post, we should enshrine it in all future contracts that is not actually the job of the manager/head coach to play pretend 4D chess by picking and choosing what games they want to win most and fanny around with the rest on some spurious grounds of 'freshness'. Pick your strongest available team, win games as convincingly as possible, and use whatever confidence boost you get to try and do it again. Until we are juggling the Club World Cup with our Champions' League defence, that's the fucking task.

  19. Our game against Hearts on 17th April will be rearranged because of our Scottish Cup commitments. Hearts have no such issues, but fortunately, League One minnows “Partick Thistle” are out of action that day, so maybe they could arrange a fundraising friendly with their wee pals.

  22. You've just proved my point that making live streaming available to all will significantly reduce crowds at the game. Thanks for that.

  23. I think you're the one who's missing the point. It's a spectator sport, and the presence of fans at the game is as much as a part of the spectacle as the players on the pitch. The one thing that's really been missing from the games this season is crowds and atmosphere. Our crowds are small enough as it is, but if live streaming was available to all as you suggest, they would plummet even further, especially in the winter months. You as much as admitted yourself that if you could live stream, you would attend fewer games. One thing I would add is that if live streaming was only available t

  24. 1) Really good but I stopped buying them after the Raes shafted us (again) in December. That's not a reflection of their quality. Gerry is excellent and I didn't expect Andy to be as insightful as he was, but he is brilliant too. 2) Other than the pillars, which aren't really the fault of the stream, I'd put us there or thereabouts. We're definitely in the top three and almost certainly in the top two. Raith was good but a bit tinpot with the whole chatroom thing. Dunfermline were good too. 3) Living several thousand miles from Cappielow as I do, absolutely. Again, my boycott is not

  29. There’s been nothing like the hysteria here as there was at the time of Diana’s death, though. There’s a bit of public grief, and the media are of course all over it, but if anyone thinks this comes close to that, they’re in for a rude awakening when Liz pops her clogs.

  30. Results we want for maximum hilarity: Round 25 Arbroath v Ayr: Arbroath win. Morton v Hearts: sneak a draw. Round 26 Morton v Alloa (r): thumping home win. Ayr v Queen of the South: Queens win Arbroath draw v whoever they're playing. Leaving the table as follows going into the final day: Morton 30 Arbroath 30 The Little People 27 Thereby leaving the Arbroath v Morton game to play out like West Germany v Austria in the 1982 World Cup, with David 'Hoppy' Hopkin furiously stalking the touchline at Inverness with absolutely nothing he can

  37. That decision is likely to be outwith the club's control as the rules are dictated by the SPFL and their broadcast partners which are likely to prohibit the option for domestic streams once fans return to grounds. Going forward, oversees Morton fans will always be able to purchase streams of the games through the SPFL Match Centre which uses the Pixie Lotte system. The FAQs on there say that commentary is also provided, not sure how that works, is it the club's commentary or something else. Remains to be seen if the club think it'll be cost effective to continue to run their own as o

  39. Not sure about that, but if we play like we did on Saturday for the remainder of the season, we’ll be fine. We look far better trying to keep the ball down. Brings the midfield in to play instead of giving them sore necks. Credit to Gus McPherson for that. Other than leaving Lyon on the bench (and even that was balanced by Hynes’ performance), his team and tactics were spot on. Tomorrow night will maybe let us see if we have a sustained improvement or just a one off. Hope we continue with two up front - Oliver is an intelligent player and he makes a difference imho.

You were targeting myself and another (VT) in recent times by voting down our posts, just because you got a few more than you'd expected in return doesn't mean you're some kind of innocent victim here.

  41. Supposed to be Lesser, but they've had some dispute with the contractors doing the building work who packed up and left it unfinished. This is a separate issue from Covid restrictions having slowed work down and they're not expecting it to be done for the start of next season, while they're unable to continue using Hampden. It's possibly going to cost them a gigantic amount of money but no doubt Willie Haughey will pay it all if they've managed to make such a mess that it ends up costing them more than they've made from the SFA for selling Hampden. For a club who love to talk about their
