  1. Morton getting rode is par for the course these days, but signing a sex offender then having fans actively celebrating their offences is a new and troubling low, it has to be said.

  2. Fact 1: Scottish football is not some shan, ridiculous 'sport' like 'American football'. Fact 2: There is therefore no valid role as 'quarterback', for a midfielder who is too gubbins to play an orthodox central midfield position. See fat Gary Harkins and Jim Duffy in a previous second tier campaign. Fact 3: The gormless insistence from both the current and previous manager that our incumbent, truly woeful 'quarterback' is above Stirling Albion's next useful no. 8 in terms of career trajectory is precisely why we can't have nice things as a professional football club. Sign a credible central midfielder instead and launch this project into the fucking sun.

  3. To justify a song about sex offences on the basis of keeping you going after a defeat is utterly pathetic .

  4. McGregor aye but Hynes is 22. Inexperienced, yes, but if he can't swim at 22 then WTF is he still doing here? Not sure exactly what age McGregor is seeing as a player who is currently getting starts and is one of our youths doesn't warrant any evidence of his existence on the official site.

  5. Which means it's a reflection of something that looks shoddy as fuck then?

  6. No more so than I have with any other self absorbed drama queen who’d walk a million miles to get their feelings hurt, but wouldn’t cross the street to get a match ticket if the alternative was to bleat online about the perceived injustices of it A couple of points worth answering, though; Keeping in touch with your mates on a WhatsApp group hardly constitutes living and breathing football 24/7. If you and said mates are aware of ticketing arrangements (which you should be as they were communicated through all the appropriate channels), it makes sense that you do your best to work round these arrangements and accommodate everyone. I’d suggest it takes approximately 3 minutes out of your week to say “yes, I’d like a ticket, I’ll transfer you £20” and reply with “cheers” once said ticket has been purchased. ”We all have our routines and priorities”. Yes, we do. But for the last 18 months, we’ve had to adapt to changing circumstances. Just walking up to a football ground, handing over £20 and going in isn’t how it works these days. The vast majority just get on with the changing circumstances, but there’s always the odd one who makes it all about himself- see Ton4Life. For all Morton’s faults, there are some genuinely good people working at Cappielow, who would bend over backwards to try and accommodate folk. The days of Susan Burns treating paying customers with downright contempt are in the distant past, and I don’t think for a second that someone like Brendan or Lesley Anne wouldn’t go out their way to help anyone. The post was grossly unfair on Morton and those who have handled the ticketing arrangements. There are times that they won’t get everything right, but generally they work to get a solution for everyone. Posts like this should be challenged as they aren’t a fair representation of how the club have worked this week.

  7. The guy who replied to the tweet’s brother is a volunteer at Cappielow, looking after the mascots and is involved with MCT, but it would be unfair to tar him with it. Has to be said though, when someone digs you out for celebrating someone pulling one off in public, it takes a special sort to reply by labelling them a wanker. Although I very much doubt he’ll see the irony in that.

  8. I think the point some are making is that Gus was one of the ones greeting.

  9. The correct approach. In the highly unlikely event we lose Hamilton during a game, Wylie gets a fraction of a match then we get someone in. More likely we lose him in training, we get someone in. Even more likely, we don't lose him at all. The greetin' from many last season about us not signing another keeper was way ott. The issue was not putting Wylie on the bench just in case. That was probably more to do with the outrageously large squad Hopkin built and trying to keep more players happy instead of giving a slot to a youth keeper.

  10. Agreed. I wasn't there so never heard it. I'm sure the player himself won't be happy with it either. Whatever your own feelings are on the player, things like this have to stop.

  11. My approach to your posts is no different to my approach to anyone else’s, hotshot. It just so happens that your posting on most matters tends to amount to ambulance chasing, dreadful trolling, seeking sympathy, putting the boot in without justification, bleating when pulled up for your dreadful takes and generally digging yourself into a hole that you can’t get out of. Neither I, nor anyone else can be held accountable for that, it’s all on you. The simple solution is to stop making a complete fanny of yourself- that way you’re unlikely to be dug up for making a complete fanny of yourself. HTH.

  14. Top marks for getting up on your stupid, lame, decrepit high horse about your mates avoiding attendance at games because Delta, as if that somehow disqualifies you from just ringing Cappielow at any point during the past week. Ambulance chaser confirmed.

  15. Nobody at all forced him to dole out new contracts to absolute shite like Muirhead, Blues and Oliver either. There’s no excuses at all for being in this position, especially when the justification for keeping Gus on was the bizarre idea that he was going to be able to build on an illustrious 9th place finish and move quickly to sign players.

  17. Sad back to old habits Gordon, or is it Mr Gordon. Red dot response. Just when I thought you had grown balls. My post was aimed at MCT and a way forward too improve matters. I have been busy this week and didn't consider the old pals route simply because many are still avoiding attendance with Delta surging. As an aside I read an interesting book by Dr Anna Lembke, a world expert in addiction, Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence. Have you considered reducing the need to heighten your dopamine levels through promotion/participation in this forum , in particular utilising your position/influence. She suggests you may have a digital dependency, much like a drug craving but more about self worth and less detrimental to the environment. I was happy that recently you had adopted a more mature and balanced approach to my postings and ask that you reconsidered what I said and really keep the red dots for comments that merit them.
