    Where the fuck did this shite patter come from? Its called 'The Wee Dublin End' and has been called that for over a hundred years now. If anyone has got a problem getting that into their heads then they can fuck off back to being a lesser Celtic superfan.

    To be honest, apart from some of Gerry’s stuff (I’m not condoning it, but that’s Gerry) I can’t remember anything that’s been downright abusive towards him. He’s been asked some very difficult questions and had his integrity called into question on a number of occasions, but his actions have vindicated that line of questioning. I’ve made two, possibly three enemies out of this whole scenario and saw one of them the other day alluding to borderline bullying, which I take exception to. My initial concern was that if the club were going to give an opportunity to a young, aspiring sports journalist/broadcaster, they should be looking within the support for that, and it’s something there is no shortage of. Cammy that’s joining the podcast you’re on for example has only recently completed a Sports Journalism degree and previously reported on youth team games when Jonathan was in charge of the social media output. But his behaviour, and downright lies, that he’s been pulled up on so many times over the last six months or so, have left him in this position, nothing else. This is a boy that nobody knew of who suddenly appeared claiming to support Morton until the skeletons came out, shat on our doorstep by screwing over one of our own and then cried mental health because of the reaction he got. I’m sorry, but he’s made his bed, he can lie in it. I know that when we go back to games I’m going to have some unpleasant conversations with a few folk, something I’ll just have to deal with. Likewise, Callum will just have to accept that his actions have resulted in his unpopularity, and he’ll have to take responsibility for them instead of crying about the bully boys who were out to get the poor wee primary school teacher with mental health issues. He treated Ewan Boyle despicably and he knows it. I’d like to think that he’ll disappear from view now in much the same way that Gordon and Ernie’s absence have made this forum a much more pleasant environment in recent months, but I suspect he’ll find a way to thrust himself into the limelight at some point in the near future. Until then, I’m delighted that his blocking of myself has cleaned my Twitter feed up of his embarrassing arse kissing of anyone with a remote link to Scottish football and shite about Connah’s Quay Nomads and Chester City in spite of me having never actually followed him. So I owe him that debt of gratitude at least.

    As someone who hasn't signed up to MCT, it's really reassuring to see this and I think it's brilliant that they're calling the club out for their shite.

    So, fast forward six months. Ewan Boyle has been relieved of his duties, we now have a full time head of media who is dealing with the cmmentary and a voluntary role opened up for someone to do the Twitter updates. In fact, no- it didn't actually open up, not publically at least. Could that be because they had a candidate waiting in the wings to do the job as predicted by some on here? I hate to say I told you so, but...

    MCT are in a difficult situation. If their relationship with the club sours then presumably all manner of wrenches could be thrown into the takeover machine. From the outside looking in, it also seems that they have a genuinely good relationship with the club and there is mutual appreciation between them. They aren't a body who immediately rush to issue statements whenever something minor comes up. They've been supportive - perhaps to a fault - of the current setup at Cappielow. Definitely not a bunch of complainers or statement factories. So for them to issue such a statement, one so factual but also so clearly disappointed with tonight's undertaking, needs to be taken crystal fucking clearly by the Morton brass. MacKinnon may be able to shrug off people giving them pelters on Twitter as just super-fans being mad on the internet. In such a case they can say, "och, it's hard, this streaming stuff, it's just one of those things, gies a break, we'll get it right next time." But if MCT, the knights in shining armor for the current regime, say it? Then the club need to listen. They need to be humble. They need to coolly and honestly accept that MCT are correct: this snafu was not only unacceptable but clearly and obviously foreseeable. The club failed to account for a proper test case. They club failed to listen to the blaring alarm bells that many people (including MCT) had been setting off. The club blithely assumed, for the billionth time this year, that everything would just be fine and people needed to relax. Kudos to MCT for saying what they needed to at a time like this, and with a good balance of the professionalism of their organization but also the disappointment of supporters.

    Agree with the refund calls- there has to be refunds issued as standard. Not as credit for the Queen’s Park game, no begging bowl out saying we’re strangling the club of their only source of income if we want our money back, no sympathy votes, nothing. Over the summer they’ve asked to keep our season ticket money from last season, and as far as I know most folk have been okay with that. They’ve ran staffing down to a minimum through the pandemic instead of speculating to accumulate, they’ve told of their plans to retain the club’s only major asset when it’s sold onto MCT, they’ve asked us to buy season tickets even though there’s a chance we won’t get into games, they’ve asked us to shell out for streams that we warned them would likely fail and duly did. The sympathy card has been used far too often now, it’s about time we got the same commitment from the club as they’re asking from us. If it costs Cutbacks Crawford a few quid then tough shit. Tesco wouldn’t put up with him supplying them a crap batch of sweeties and it’s about time we stopped putting up with it just because it’s Morton. Can only really reiterate what everyone else said about the actual footage. Gherry and Andy were fine in commentary. A few mistakes here and there and some shite patter thrown in for a bit of flavour, but you get that from every commentary team. Never mind failing to test the stream properly, what about the unmanned camera? That should’ve been tested at the Livingston game last week, but all we saw was a replay of Slakeld’s goal from the “Wee Dub”. Whilst Crawford’s disinterest in the club is one of the major factors here, MacKinnon also has to look at his role. He’s cut things to an absolute minimum to the extent that he’s doing most of it himself. I don’t doubt he’s putting in long hours and that it’s a bit of a thankless task at times, but if you take the decision to run things with minimal help and a reduced range of skills, you’ll get found out sooner rather than later. This is just another turnstiles fiasco. They’ve put something together without due diligence and just decided that “that’ll do” rather than asking how they can do it right. Lo and behold, the cracks have appeared immediately. More than three years later there are still loads of flaws with the turnstiles, would anyone expect any different from the streams if MCT don’t start holding folk to account the way the current regime haven’t?

    How's that love of putting one over The Famous working out for those cunts right now? Perhaps they should focus on getting one over no-mark minnows like 'Clyde' in their bid to avoid relegation to the fourth tier of Scottish football first and then only speaking to their superiors like ourselves when told to, which will of course be 'never'. And Welsh wasn't even 'one of our own young players': he was a loanee from another club who was shite when he played for us and is shite when he plays for Celtic under their own shite manager. Other than all of that though, a solid 0/10 contribution from yourself and a merited rd;dh.

    I'd agree it probably is time to draw a line in that he's said he won't be attending Cappielow, so that's nipped in the bud and we can move on from the unsavoury episode without this turning into a pile-on as opposed to fans asking justifiable questions about who's working for the club and why. However as we wrap it up, I thought it was worth highlighting the extreme similarity between these match reports, one of which he definitely couldn't have written because he wasn’t performing any role for Morton. https://cfbfootball.com/2020/10/09/the-new-normal-morton-vs-queen-of-the-south/ https://www.gmfc.net/morton-2-2-queen-of-the-south-qos-win-4-2-on-penalties/

    Callum seemed to insinuate in a few carefully worded tweets last night that he was at Cappielow on media duty. Why then, was he wearing a red lanyard, which was the same as the commentary team, while every other journalist who was inside the ground was wearing a yellow lanyard? Notice from these photos that media guys such as Des McKeown are wearing yellow lanyards, but CFB and Dave MacKinnon are in red lanyards. He's scabbing and obviously thinks we're too thick to notice.

    It's good that signing up is possible now, but it's still so shambolic. The only reason any of us know is people stumbling on it by accident when looking at the shop on the website. If they want people to be buying it they should have been screaming from the rooftops that it's now on sale here with a link on every form of social media and a message on the front page of the website. Instead the latest update is that they'll let us know how to stream "well in advance of kick off". That update is accessed from a news section which sits beneath a message that our next match is against Alloa on 17th October. They have a load of our email addresses as well, they should be pushing it to everyone whose details they have, but that's asking a bit much when they can’t even get a tweet or the information on their own website right. Similarly, if they need big numbers to take part in these test events last night and tonight so it's a comparable test for the platform, they should be getting pushed widely to everyone who's willing to buy. How much of a test is it going to be if you only get 25 people who've stumbled on it by accident registering for the test when you could have had hundreds if you just bothered your arse to advertise it? Then again, we might not get more than 25 buying it with all they've done to promote it. This is a new level of incompetence. I never thought I'd be saying this, but it's not only a step backwards in competence from Warren Hawke - who made his own position untenable through repeated gross incompetence - it's bigger commerical incompetence than we've seen at all in the 19 years of Golden Casket's tenure. When we effectively had no commercial presence whatsoever 10 years ago and were making season tickets available only about a month before the season started, it wasn't as amateurish and downright laughable as this.

    Might just be me, but what a great advert for MCT taking over the club. The more people that pledge, the sooner we can get new owners and a properly run club that listens to its supporters and actively engages with its local community. Tonight was absolutely farcical and sadly absolutely predictable. It really, really shouldn't be this hard.

    Welsh caught napping by the 14 time European trophy winners for the opening goal, which comes as a huge surprise to absolutely nobody who saw him getting roasted by such crack European outfits like Inverness Caley Thistle.

    They're 'saving a few bob' at the direct expense of either fans or disinterested individuals who just so happen to have the required expertise in the local area, who might just need an additional paid role to cope with the economic crisis right now. That's not the calling card of a club that wants to pass itself off as being central to its local community at all. There is a purpose and a need for volunteers to help out with lower level tasks at any football club but it is not there for GMFC or any other professional football club to try and get away with not putting rightful employees on its payroll. Will fans be asked to run the pie stalls and do the security when they return to games as well?

    If we go to live streamed games in the UK becoming the norm after COVID then the gulf between the haves and have nots will only increase. Celtic and Rangers have sold out their season tickets- allowing them to sell streams to their wider fan base would only increase the financial gulf between them and the rest, whilst clubs like ourselves, who sell out about a fifth of our ground could find guys like you or I, who don’t stay locally, just deciding to pay c. £15 to sit in the house with a couple of cans instead of £20 plus travel to actually go to the game. One of the very few things we’ve got right in the UK with regards to broadcasting football is the ban on 3pm games- that absolutely has to stay to protect clubs like ourselves.

    A completely unacceptable statement, although at least it doesn't go quite so far as the unnamed source in the Tele blaming everyone else and throwing out an excuse worse than the dog ate my homework. Not Internet gurus Looking at the differing stances of clubs who had issues with streams last night: Albion Rovers - stream failed due to issue with a third party which Albion Rovers had no control over. Apology from the club and confirmation full refunds would be automatically issued last night. Morton - Morton's own website crashes because it can't handle the number of people trying to get onto just the homepage of the site before getting near opening the stream, something which is entirely Morton's responsibility. What, you want a refund? Fuck off you peasants, why are you so ungrateful? Can't you see this is really difficult and we're trying hard? None of this is our fault! An absolute joke of a football club.

    I’ll be demanding a refund if I’m unable to view tonight. When will this club fucking wake up. Stumbling from one shambles to another at every opportunity. The stinking attitude to not wanting to do a live test is mental. How difficult is it? They’re aware our website crashes whenever there’s more traffic on it. Fuck off.

    I really don't see what the issue is here. You won't be allowed to waltz up to the car park to watch a closed-doors competitive match in a few weeks time because the club and SPFL will get their baws booted as (when) it gets out of hand. There's no point then in creating a precedent for the sake of some absolutely pointless knockabout game. The reality should be dawning that whatever imitation of football is produced at this level will be a joke as well as any jobsworth with a Filofax like Salty's wet dream. We are better off just binning the season until restrictions are lifted in their entirety.
