  1. Yeah. All I was really trying to say is that it's not too far away from normality over there, and they weren't too far down on a normal attendance. There's no hiding the problems we have as a club, and the task we've got to reconnect with the fanbase, but crazy staggered entry times, face masks, not having away fans, and restrictions on where fans can go in the ground are not necessary and will be putting people off. On the other hand, from a personal point of view, it was my first game back and I actually forgotten how much I enjoyed being at a game. I'd been enjoying the streams but, even with the restrictions at Cappielow (albeit I got lucky with the entry times), I won't be watching them again unless I have no other option. So much better being back in the cowshed.

  2. Tragic result for Ayr after waiting 28 years for a league derby win. Extra bonus was Killie's never was penalty and Hopkin's greeting faced reaction. ps So happy we'll never see that clown McGinty in a Ton shirt again.

  3. Aye, good luck to him, he seems to be a good acquisition for the club right enough. But they're still expecting miracles from the guy if they expect him to be able to turn this ship around on a 30 hour per week contract.

  4. It really is horrendous watching a David Hopkin team. To think he would probably still be here if he hadn't done the 'noble' thing and walked out to save player's contracts (and if you believe that, you'll believe anything).

  5. 1) I don't see evidence that we're down to our core support in any fundamental way, but rather it was just not clear enough to casual/walk-up fans where and how they could get tickets yet. The club website provided updates but the Smiths'/general ticket sale amounted to a tiny section in the Tele and not much else. After 15 months of there not being any or enough opportunity to actually attend the match, it shouldn't be too surprising if those who are not hugely invested did not pick up right away how they could get tickets. That's before they consider what ridiculous hoops they might have to jump through as well to get in. I don't think that this is a specifically Morton problem (though publicising matchday details to the community should be prioritised) as much as a wider Scottish football problem. Dundee only sold 2300 out of 4000 stadium tickets for their return fixture to the top flight, which is arguably worse than our figure of 800. 2) The stadium attendance only further underlines the need for Morton as much as the SPFL to lobby national and local governments to get all arbitrary restrictions and protocols in the bin, because the current situation is completely unsustainable. The cost of extra stewarding to act as some glorified mask police alone is a dead weight and once the weather turns crowds will fall away sharply. Keeping token gestures like designated entry times and the mask police and having a steward tell you when you can leave the ground are not harmless precautions, they will prove club-killing restrictions for this level of the game. 3) While we have a mixture of live attendance and streaming options, it would be more useful for all clubs to disclose the figures for every game rather than just publishing folk in the ground.

  6. I hope to fuck it's not that CFB Tosspot that is replacing Gherry.
