  1. I have a dream that one day, Morton will have a good left back who Morton fans don't want to move to another position for no apparent reason.

  2. What a condescending prick of a person. Its not as straightforward as 'choosing not to.' Are you aware that we are in the middle of unprecedented times where a pandemic has caused people to lose their jobs or take pay cuts? Inverclyde also has one of the highest poverty rates in Scotland causing some people to use food banks and let's not forget about it being the festive season and the pressures that brings. I have signed up and pledged for some time but do not assume that folk are simply choosing not to back the club. It's about priorities for for a lot of people right now - hav

  4. Where’s Dave MacKinnon? After spending last week e-mailing Hearts fans to reassure them that we shouldn’t be on their naughty list, now the shit’s properly hit the fan, he’s nowhere to be seen. Surely as the CEO he should have been Hopkin’s Line Manager? I get that you have to allow your manager to make his own mistakes, but he’s been allowed to create such an unbalanced squad without a second choice goalkeeper on MacKinnon’s watch. At what point did the alarm bells start ringing for MacKinnon here? If there was no further money available to bring in a keeper, MacKinnon should’ve been all

  5. That's a belter even by this forums standards. I suppose it's the fans fault that our club is a running joke amongst players in Scottish football thanks to how it's run. I suppose it's the fans fault that our last three managers have walked out on us in humiliating circumstances due to refusing to work under conditions set by our glorious leader, and it's worth noting that if the Alexander Easdale scenario was true then in every single one of those instances Crawford Rae swiped away previously agreed conditions from under those managers feet that left them with no choice but to leav

  6. I was looking forward to finding out how the club could manage to make things the big bad Morton fans fault when none of us are even allowed in the fucking ground, but I see we've made it there after two league games. Sterling work.

  7. 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

  8. 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

  10. So Morton fans have basically been propping the club up through MCT this season and now we have the astonishing scenario of a Rae family member or close contact blaming the fans for the mess they've put us in. The cheek. Get these bastards out our club. As soon as fans are allowed back i'll be there to back the team and hound the Raes out. That post has boiled my blood.

  11. Two scenarios here: 1. That's a fabrication to hide the real reason, in which case the board are lying to the support and their position is untenable. 2. More likely and far more worrying, it's true and they've made such a pig's ear of budgeting for the season that despite receiving £10K a month from MCT and allowing the manager to build a 22 man squad, they literally can’t afford to pay the wage of a fucking manager, in which case the board are more incompetent than any of us could ever have imagined and their position is untenable. No one expected budgeting for this season to

  12. Should charge £18 for the Hearts game at Cappielow with a special offer of the Queen of the South game a fortnight later for a tenner if you buy the Hearts game. Excellent way for Morton fans to pay the going rate whilst fleecing the bastards for the maroon pound.

  13. I see CFB has chucked in his 'heartfelt' eulogy on Twitter, quoting Ewan's tweet. The very person who paved the way for his departure from the club by scabbing his role during the lockdown. Utterly shameless, narcissistic and vile behaviour from Callum. But we knew all of that already.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. My fucking word. We have had more than our fair share of minter statements over the years but just wow. Begging for stream purchases when you have let the manager go and put novices in charge, have a word. No wage deferral, no cut, just a straight out bye bye to the manager? If the finances were so tight (we know they are) why have you done fuck all about it other than appeal to the fans to dig deep again? It's December. Not an ounce of marketing merchandise for Christmas, multi game packages or half season tickets. You want income? Fucking do something to earn it. In

  18. Give me strength. This is a football club with a history of embarrassing episodes that you could write a best seller about and this regime in particular is writing the best chapter in the book with their monumental fuck ups at pretty much every opportunity. It isn’t a momentary lapse- this is 11 (eleven) breaches of protocol on the same weekend that the Clinical Director got torn into another club, and a matter of days after two further clubs had to concede three matches between them. You know what, I’ll not be calling the Health Secretary about this video you refer to. Why not?

  21. 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

  26. 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

  27. A number of points to make on this: 1) This is a general forum point right now: we need to stop focusing on Crawford Rae as the significant factor behind anything. This has been the mistake that people have been making for a decade: to assume that Golden Casket would operate like some French medieval estate and just descend automatically and intact to the first-born son. Crawford Rae does not have the casting vote at GC: he has a say in what happens but can be overruled by more significant shareholders. He is a placeman at Cappielow to look after the interests of GC first and foremost: wh

  28. I thought when he signed last summer it made sense despite being laughed out of Dunfermline. Taking some gambles on players whose reputations were on the way down but were still young with a point to prove was to be expected with the budget we were working with. Hopkin and Muirhead both said when the signing was announced that he was being brought in as a centre forward and getting a run of games there could kickstart his career. I get that Hopkin loves versatility in a player, sometimes to the extent ability is secondary to it, but how often did he actually get a game up front? He spent

  29. 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...

  30. 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 fac

  31. Fun career facts: the entire last decade of Scott McLaughlin's 'career' was spent yo-yoing between the third and fourth tiers of the seaside leagues, with the singular exception of 2011/12 in which he got relegated from the second tier with a hopeless Queen of the South outfit, who punted him in the summer and promptly went on to romp the Second Division. Since being rightly emptied from The Famous in 2008, McLaughlin got relegated in every season that he subsequently played in the second tier (Airdrie x2, Queen of the South), also got relegated from the third tier with Albion Rovers in 2018 a

  34. Good technique from McAlister for the first goal as well. Hopefully after putting out all the fires a new regime will be able to organise a testimonial before his retirement. Consider all the circus scenes that he has now experienced at the club over nearly twenty years and gets on with the job every week like a complete professional, compared to a wee fanny like 'Rhegan' Tumilty who flaps his trap about how the wraps were shite and the kit brand wasn't good enough for him after barely a year in the door. I suspect that his first choice of opponents would be a predictable, decent money-s

  36. I never thought this year could get any more surreal and along comes a newbie alias posting to put the blame on fans for the shambolic mess that is GMFC. DDFR was rightly lauded when he rescued the club but almost all the issues we now face are directly related to his and his son's ownership and decision-making. The failing business model is solely down to the Rae family. It was also DDFR who assured the fans that he would effectively leave Morton debt free only for the family to row back on this promise as they continue to seek to squeeze every penny out of the fans. Sadly, the family's decis

  37. This defence of Hopkin's recruitment would stand up if he'd built a balanced squad which happened to have the flaws we've seen because the quality just wasn't available within the budget. What he actually did was build a 22 man squad with one goalkeeper, five defenders and ten forwards. The squad is in the state it is because of Hopkin's choice to stockpile identikit number 10s and wingers while neglecting every other area of the park. Regardless of what the budget is, it's therefore factually incorrect to say we couldn't possibly have built a better squad and had a manager doing the best

  40. Probably time to eat a bit of humble pie about Gherry- the commentary is very good, and given that the Dundee commentary is all we can really compare it to at present, he has a better understanding of the game, it appears he does his research on opposing players and, much as his patter can be grim, has a lot more charisma than that guy. I’d say there are wee things about Morton he’s not up to speed on that probably saddos like myself pick up on, and it was obvious that he and Andy didn’t understand the format of the League Cup groups when the Queen of the South game went to penalties.

  41. 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

  44. I'd presume nothing of the sort, in fact I'd presume the exact opposite, that Golden Casket are doing no such thing and are covering nothing. Generating the £10K a month via MCT with no additional income is where we are now because Golden Casket are refusing to do anything about it. We also have the situation where fans may be willing to fundraise, purchase merchandise, streams etc and provide revenue to the club over and above their MCT subscriptions, but are unwilling to do so while Golden Casket remain in charge, or at least until they renounce their claim to take the assets with them.
