  1. (Photo-D Sargent, Ayr United FC) A Blast From The Past... by Russell Gordon With apathy and pessimism in plentiful supply ahead of Friday's winner-takes-all relegation showdown at Gayfield, someone has to look for some crumb of comfort heading into the game. So, whilst it may well be a case of clutching at straws, it should be noted that the weight of recent history is very much in Morton's favour. There's no point in pretending that we're not in a familiar position here, with the majority of our time since promotion in 2007 being spent towards the bottom end of the second tier

  2. Lyon's under contract and as the club is committed to the youth system it seems impossible that they'd try to move him on, so unless he asks to leave or someone comes in for him, he's staying. Why would you keep a non-first choice player? It makes no sense at all at this level of football. All it does is narrow your options. A retained list should only be for people who are going to play far more often than not. If you do the opposite you end up guys like Cammy Blues (and Luca Colville, for that matter) and Cameron Salkeld* staying in a bloated squad. Anyone who's not a nailed-on sta

  3. Never mind fuck off Ayr, if we can’t score goals we don’t deserve to stay up.

  4. Jack Iredale is awarded the English PFA’s League 2 player of the month award. I suspect that just about all of us is delighted to hear of Jack’s success, just like many were happy to enjoy League Ome jobber Thomas O’Ware’s misfortune last season, given that Jack isn’t a complete prick. But the fans are the problem...

  5. Agree he comes across like an alright guy, and I couldn't give a fuck if he was at St. Mirren, but he said himself early doors after his appointment that his job was to keep us in the division. If he doesn't do that then he's failed and shouldn't expect to get kept on. For what it's worth, I don't really care if he stays or goes, but if I was in charge that's what I'd be basing my decision on. The majority of the blame for me though still lies with 'Hoppy' and that MacKinnon guy. Pleading poverty yet building a squad almost two times too big in normal times, never mind for a 27-game campa

  6. The notion of the rae's digging us out of a hole in Div 1 is fanciful at best. They've been digging our grave for years and I doubt that will change. Much prefer to be competing in the Championship with a new team running the show but ultimately that will depend on what Gus and the boys do over the next two games (be nice if Queens do us a favour). If we go down so be it. It's not as if relegation and us are strangers. However getting the rae's out the door will feel like promotion

  8. I agree, no manager has been a success this season. McElhone (a fitness coach) seemed to have the players buying into him, where Gus (a once-proven manager at this level) has come in and barely mustered a reaction. No doubt that's largely due to a lack of quality and Gus isn't culpable for that, but the reaction of the players after the whistle blew up at Inverness suggests they were still behind McElhone, although his removal had already been decided. We've been chasing our tail this season with poor decision-making at every juncture of boardroom level. No checks and balances on player r

  9. Manager isn't good enough. Four centre defenders who sit back when they can and two sitting midfielders was just stupid in the last two games when we needed at least one win.

  11. Hopefully the money that is sitting there from the government will be used wisely. I don't expect us to waltz back up in a season or even two but we cannot sort things out behind the scenes and get fans on board while shitfesting every single game and getting zero - zero - shots on goal. It's time for a complete reset, break up all but a handful of the team and get that clown McPherson out the door. New ownership, new manager, new squad and maybe we might actually play some attacking football once in 2021.

Put strapp at LB and leave McGinty out, McGinty is an absolute liability regardless of were he plays on the park i do not understand why we are hampering ourselves by playing a LB at LM and CB at LB. Leaving Lyon and Colville on the bench for the entire 90 mins today was a sackable offensive in its own rights. Colville is one of our most technically gifted players and I would have him on the park f

  14. I think we have to cut them a wee bit of slack here. They're in the middle of the transition of ownership and I'm sure having to deal with a million and one other things on a voluntary basis. Happy to give them the benefit of doubt, for now.

  17. I can understand the disappointment and frustration but this seems a tad over dramatic. Relegation is something we've all experienced and some have been more painful than others, but there's no reason to believe that we can't turn it around if we get the basics right. We've all been crying out for a change of ownership for years and now when it looks likely to come true I'm looking forward to the challenge, irrespective of the division.

  18. There was a few out of contract players i wouldve wanted to keep for next season, but see after these last 2 games anyone out of contract can get to fuck IMO. Its an absolute disgrace that u cant beat a part time team at home, that's already relegated and then fail to score (or even hit the target) against fucking arbroath (another part time team btw), when its the most important game of the whole season. Personally i dont want to be paying the wages of guys that dont deserve it after the epic shambles this season has been and the frankly pathetic performances we've seen for the majo

  19. Everyone has been saying for weeks that he shouldn't be playing yet McPherson has insisted on playing him at left fucking back. Not even in his natural position. Get McGinty to fuck and McPherson as well. Fucking on the touchline having a laugh with Douglas and Campbell. A joke.

  23. Golden Casket leaving with anything after the decades of damage they've done rankles, but a debt free club with ownership of the stadium is considerably better than we had before. I still think it might be too late to avert catastrophe and if we go down this season we won't be back at this level for years, if ever. Turning into Clyde is more likely than turning into Airdrie and it's easy to see turmoil on and off the park feeding off each other and sinking MCT's credibility before they properly get going. If they're planning to overhaul every aspect of the club with the ultimate aim

  25. Not true. It's also down to 'Hoppy' whose utterly abysmal transfer strategy left us up shite creek with 18 midfielders and no competent centre forward. It's also down to the current manager who had two entirely winnable, crucial home games and took one point from them. And it's also down to the other board members who, by not resigning in protest at Golden Casket's shitshow during the middle of the season, have condoned and allowed it to tick along. There's more than enough responsibility to go round.

  29. One thing that MCT need to prioritise on taking over is putting in place a system for player recruitment, whether that's a DoF role or simply a credible scouting network to identify and pass judgment on potential targets. The manager getting a call from an agent/his mate at Spurs and bringing in a lorryload of crap ringers is not sustainable.

  30. Quite refreshing to see a pudit slaughtering big clubs for looking outwith the domestic leagues that have served them so well for over a century. Imagine the completely hypothetical scenario of a couple of Scotland's biggest clubs wanting to join a higher profile league and the condemnation our media would* give them? *Wouldn't. It would be the fault of the other clubs in this country for being too small, too shit and too skint and holding the bigger clubs back.

  31. Another one of those “A View From The Terrace” types that seems to be polluting Scottish football these days. Always think that adults who never had a team and then all of a sudden attach themselves to newly formed franchise clubs are for the watching. If his shitey wee club didn’t get to play football because Morton decided to have a kick about for a laugh then that’s about the first positive to come out of this car crash of a season.

  32. I am completely against colt teams in principle. There are actual football clubs who want to be promoted into the professional leagues on merit so we should keep things on the track they are now with more relegation from league 2. Furthering the monopoly of the bigots should not be on the cards.

  34. And if it takes a couple of years to lay the foundations for a football club that is well-run, responsive to the fans as key stakeholders and has a wider base of income streams than 'bring a friend' then we can come out the better for it. In the mid-1980s Saint Johnstone were a stupid wee bumpkin outfit on the verge of financial collapse, that finished 30th out of 38 Scottish football clubs in the national leagues at that time. Under competent stewardship, they built themselves up gradually into a club that has won the Scottish Cup, multiple other trophies and has played in Europe on sev

  38. While the legal and financial aspects of the takeover deal and day one of ownership are the most important details and they'll have understandably taken up the bulk of the MCT team's time recently, I note that the document states "we will look to use relevant expertise to develop a strategic outlook for the footballing operations at the club following transfer of ownership." I appreciate that work may be ongoing and some details may not be appropriate for public disclosure, but this close to the summer and with the extent of the rebuild required at the club I was hoping for some more detail on

  45. This. I'd go further though and call it hypocrisy. Same goes for the Premier League, crocodile tears from them as well given that they're the ones who kickstarted the whole power shift towards the top handful of clubs, and in turn created the culture of greed and entitlement that's led us to where we are now.

  46. It happened 29 years ago when UEFA formed the Champions League- they did get ahead of it but the Champions League became such a monster that it’s bigger clubs got greedier and greedier. These clubs are now too big and too powerful for them to challenge, and UEFA are partly culpable for that. I think it’s inevitable that this would’ve happened anyway, whether UEFA wanted it to or not. It’s been the result of a culmination of events over the last generation- satellite TV, the internet, Hillsborough, the move to all seater stadia, the Premier League, The Champions League, the collapse of the
