  2. Not the best game. But all we should be concerned about is ourselves. That's us another point towards staying in this league we looked solid enough at the back created next to nothing on a poor park. Just get through the season fresh start and move forward hopefully as one. As for Jonathan sutherland if you didny enjoy it get yourself to fuck

  3. Partick Thistle (surely 'Partick Thistle Family Club'? - Ed.) wants to put on record its support for any measures the Scottish Government puts in place to stop the spread of Covid-19. In the current pandemic, the priority must be on saving lives and protecting the NHS. But for us as a club, today’s news that all football below the Championship has been shut down is the culmination of a series of circumstances that we, as a board, foretold last April and have fought to avoid ever since. Once demoted(emphasis mine - lol wut you were fucking relegated mate), we fought for a restructure

  4. All good wishes to Ton fans everywhere on this special day. Found out 20 mins ago I was going to be a granda for the first time. so hopefully another one for the Cappielow Martyrs.

  5. Arbroath tweeting to tell their fans of the knock on effect of our game tomorrow being called off, that the game against them on Tuesday is off, before Morton even bother to tell us when they’ve had to bring someone in to inspect the pitch is about the most typical example of the indifference of this current regime has to doing their job that you could expect. They really couldn’t give a flying fuck.

  6. I was just getting old enough to start understanding players when Lilley was at his best in his first spell with us, and it was clear that he was freakishly mobile and was leaving old duffer hack defenders in his wake without even thinking about it. He also had - and he kept this right til the end, long after his running legs were gone - an extremely powerful shot. It was a deadly combination. For all that I like and respect Kalvin Orsi for coming in from Brechin and giving 100% to the cause, he doesn't have either of these. What he does have is character, strength, and an ability to bot

  7. This season just needs to be binned. We tried but it's time to call it. And if that means Hearts, Falkirk, Partick and Queens Park all have to stay down for another season that's just an unfortunate coincidence.

  8. Coming on expecting to read that Crawford has trousered the grant money or that Cameron Blues actually does have nudes of Hopkin's wife that he had been blackmailing him with in exchange for new contracts and game time. Instead we get the completely shocking news that Morton are a shit show behind the scenes, there are untrustworthy snakes in the current regime and that MCT are getting more involved seeing as their contributions are effectively keeping the club going when the budget has been cut and that they are planning for next season. Absolutely rocked by these completely unexpec

  9. So, it was a slow news day at the Smelly Tele then? And what have we learned from this story? Absolutely nothing. Don't forget to read tomorrow's Tele, where a guy with tattooed knuckles will be moaning about living in a damp Hoose.

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

  11. Clearly the only sensible way of conducting our business is to hand them an extension after the final whistle of every game, until they end up tied to the club to 2045 like a member of Jim McLean's Dundee United squad*. * doesn't actually work anymore

  15. Can’t say I’m overly concerned about any of this morning’s revelations, they were all pretty much known by most anyway I’d have thought. Very difficult to see any criminality involved from MCT looking at covering all their bases for the handover, and confirmation that MacKinnon is a bad apple that should be rooted out of the club at the earliest possible opportunity. It’s an embarrassing story for the club, yeah, and hopefully a death knell for MacKinnon’s tenure, but it’s the sort of thing we need in order to cleanse the club of this cancer that’s been running through it for years now.

  18. Jamie O’Hara and Adrian Durham have been routinely ridiculed in recent weeks not because the public are self appointed experts, but because their own views have been fucking stupid, attention seeking dirge and they’ve said it purely to get a reaction. There’s no backlash to your contribution because of who it is making that contribution, it’s because said contribution is shite.

  19. Home league results since we started training on the pitch at the start of last season: W9 D6 L4. That's play-off contention home form over a campaign right there, from two of our most limited squads in a long, long time (13/14 - not you). So long as the media and opponents are the ones left gurning about the injustice of it all after yet again failing to emerge from Fortress Cappielow with the big away win that they were all looking for, then we can turn the pitch into the third battle of Ypres for all I care. Taking empty platitudes for keeping a nice showlawn after yet another 0-3 defe

  21. One real positive out of Hopkin leaving is that Lyon is getting more time in the pitch. Criminal not to have him involved for so long.

  22. The biggest concern for me (it's not that much right now - we're still a fair way from trouble) is that Arbroath and Queens have already added a player or two in the transfer market, as well as Raith etc. in the midfield pack, all to improve their sides for the second half of the campaign. While the 'custodians' at Cappielow have stuck a fork in it and used the window to clear the decks regardless of the £500k grant. I'm not asking for a spending spree - that would be utterly ridiculous - but a warm body to cover McAdams and a single credible centre forward is not too much to ask. Any com

  25. Omar is absolutely hopeless. Piss poor passing and doesn't really seem bothered putting a foot in. Get Jacobs on and we could get the 3 points here. I like big Orsi but he throws himself about like a big fud half the time. Colville has a good ball on him. Nesbitt also looking like he wants to be the main man. Thought the defence has seemed fairly solid. Just wondering where the spark comes from. A new striker in the window (unlikely I know) could be pivotal to the season ahead.

  26. They are covering a championship game. Give it some respect. The terrible Twins get blanket coverage in the media already. Give teams at our level their moment in the sun; it's a rare event. One of the things I enjoy about our livestream coverage and that of our opponents at away games is that the commentators are generally reasonably well clued up about us, and our own commentators Gerry and Andy also know a bit about the opposition. Clearly these guys make a point of learning about opponents before the game. I've also found most of the club commentators to be fairly neutral in thei

  29. MacKinnon is full of himself and has been missing for months. I'd take anything he says with a pinch of salt. It was him who got rid of a kit man, etc but regardless, at a small buisness everyone does more than their job role and has to be a bit flexible. Not saying for a second that things are perfect but he's a charlatan and by the sounds of it, another snake.

  30. Front page? Ooft. Given some of the Tele’s recent efforts it could be anything. Kalvin Orsi overcharged in Morrisons, Cammy Salkeld not picking up his dog’s shite, Brian McLean at Word Up. All on the cards.

  31. That's a good point actually - there has to be liaison between the current owners and MCT to agree a forward strategy that doesn't involve pressing control alt delete and rebooting Morton. That could possibly involve committing to future expenditure prior to the actual takeover date, and that is something that should be getting discussed now.

  32. When Lilley broke into the first team there were guys on our bus who referred to him as a “lump o’ wood” - every week. Bearing in mind that this was in the 93-94 season when we were one of five teams relegated (due to reconstruction) and the team were a shambles pretty much every game. Given the career that he went on to have, it’s fair to say that at times, football fans know f**k all.

  35. Let’s be honest though, that’s really not sensible, is it? It’s just attention seeking drivel from a radio station whose purpose is to stoke controversy in order that folk talk about them. The sort of folk that think it’s funny calling Celtic, “Septic”. A horrendous take from them, and equally horrendous patter from you. Fully merited red dot, this time.

  37. While there are no credible mechanisms to prevent community transmission affecting Morton's players and staff, it's plainly obvious that Morton's attitude towards the restrictions and guidelines have been somewhere between complacent and blatantly negligent. There have been dozens of breaches of the guidelines in our media output over the course of the season, if that's the content we are willfully displaying on social media, what exactly is going on behind closed doors? How many times have we spotted Dossier Dave swanning around on matchday streams and photographs without a mask on? I've been

  38. 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.
