  1. After some of the allegations Dundee fans threw about after that day at Hamilton it would be great if there was some match-fixing afoot at Dens. Nasty wee club.

  2. One of the many in the category of having a good first half then losing the run of himself in the second, several shanked clearances and misplaced passes which put us back under pressure. At 9 league games unbeaten, this is now our best unbeaten run in 15 years, having had separate runs of 9 and 11 unbeaten in 06/07. The last time it happened in the second tier was 89/90 when we went 10 unbeaten, but 9 of those were draws so the last run as good at this level was 86/87, when we went 12 unbeaten with 9 wins. Our best run of league results in 36 years. What a manager.

  3. Aye, agreed. For as long as I’ve watched football, Dundee have been one of these clubs that have always had something murky about them. There’s always been some gangster or charlatan running the place, from Ron Dixon through the Marr brothers, Giovanni Di Stefano, Callum Melville and now Nelms. A bit like a poor man’s Hearts. They’re an absolute disease of a club, constantly linked to scandal and the hypocrisy of their fans in labelling us as crooks is astounding. Hopefully this derails their season and we benefit from it. Cunts.

  5. Was saddened to read there on Facebook that Bryan passed away on Monday evening. I'm sure many on this board knew him well. RIP.

  7. Horrendous news. I hope Bryan was as proud to count me as friend as I am to count him, and I’ll miss him badly, like we all will. He was a smashing guy, may he rest in peace, and I hope his family are informed as to how popular he was amongst the Morton support. He was genuinely one of those guys who made you proud to be a branch.

  9. Get a grip of yourselves FFS. If the first and second half performances had been swapped, there'd be none of this morose nonsense but instead praise for getting back in the game instead. It's one, single rancid half of football either way - and we've not seen any of those for a ridiculously long time.

  10. Another familiar face moves on. Bryan was almost always amazingly upbeat with a passion for Morton and all things football related. He will be sorely missed around the place. Hopefully if there is a parallel alternative out there he will be dancing around at a full Cappielow. RIP.

  12. At the same time though, their behaviour since the introduction of VAR has been despicable, designed to intimidate officials by ramping up the perception that there’s an agenda against them more than ever before, making it as difficult as possible for referees to apply the laws of the game regardless of what technology they have to help themselves out. Of course, that’s on the officials to be stronger, but you can’t bank on that either.

  13. I'm against VAR on principle, but given the beggars got awarded a penalty for a foul that was about five yards outside the box to seal the match for them on my last visit, scrutiny of rancid refereeing decisions is to be welcomed.

  14. And they failed to win today as well, despite having the initiative for almost all of the second half to do so. While it doesn't impact us, that result is a killer for them. As much as I look forward to the day when we can once again file all trips to Angus clubs like a Harlem Globetrotters tour, we're not there yet. All of our games against them have been rancid at this level - today's was more open and entertaining than most - and so it's no surprise that any result today had to be ground out. Three points would have been a better result but it is unrealistic to expect every single half of every single game to be up to the required standard - and there's not any gulf in quality between the teams to get us wins when we're not at our best. A sensible observer takes the away point that confirms our nine game unbeaten run in this league, and expects Imrie to work out any issues just as he's done before.

  18. I knew he'd been unwell recently but this still comes as a massive shock. Brian was the consummate Morton fan, both online and off. He was absolutely invaluable to have around as a moderator (and commiserator, during our near-limitless defeats and dramas) back when I ran this forum, and I'm proud to have called him a friend. Despite his condition he made the absolute most of his life, even living independently while still being in touch with his family. And, of course, he loved Morton. My thoughts are with his family.

  19. I initially thought its the right time to make a few changes but we only have 3 games between now and the 2nd of Jan so strongest team possible and give us the best chance of progressing. Players don't exactly need a rest, its been 1 game a week for a long time now. Kabia and O'Connor in for Baird and Quitongo. It's not exactly a competition I'm desperate to win but when you see there's been 17 winners of this tournament and we're not one of them, it's about time we changed that . Teams like Inverness, Ross County, QOTS, Hamilton and Falkirk have all been in the final 4 or 5 times so we have failed pretty miserably for a team of our size. Thistle and Ayr in that boat too.

  22. Understandable to be a little disappointed. Started the day hoping to be top by the end of it, left sitting 4th with what feels like the first real setback result in ages. Shows how far we have come though. Some of the reactions definitely over the top. Keeping the unbeaten run going is decent and there's always going to be some setbacks. Disappointing after getting a goal so late in the 1st to lose one so early in the 2nd. Poor from Jack but we didn't play well enough in that 2nd half so m Arbroath deserved at least what they got. Dougie will likely fire a few rockets after that. Shame it's another break from the league next week.

  23. Putting it on the defence as a whole being caught cold is harsh: for all that none of them other than Grimshaw covered themselves in glory in the second half, the goal was entirely Baird's fuck up. However Baird has had an excellent season and I'd never have thought it would take 17 games for him to sell a goal, so it'd be harsh to hang him out to dry for it. That was the worst we've played since Firhill and we were hanging on for a point by the end, but we're inevitably going to see this run come to an end at some point so if we escape from away games playing like we did in that second half with a point then fine. I do think though that was the first time Imrie has undoubtedly got his subs (or lack of them) wrong. I'm a big McGrattan fan but even at that I've always seen why he's the first one to get subbed of the front three when Quitongo is generally a good outball, gives defences a physical nightmare and is capable of tearing past them with pace and power, while Muirhead can conjure a goal from absolutely nowhere. Today though neither of them were remotely involved in that second half and McGrattan was the only outball we had, having already tried switching Quitongo and Muirhead round which changed absolutely nothing. Kabia for Quitongo would undoubtedly have been a better sub than taking McGrattan off there. With Gillespie have a stinker, Blues invisible and Crawford on a booking we really could have done with King getting a go in the middle for any of them as well.

  24. Dont disagree with what you're saying......just felt annoyed at Arbroath equalising 2 mins into the second half. Annoyed because I think the defence were caught cold after the restart. Dougie will be fuckin ragin.

  25. Try comparing to the actual defeat we suffered at Gayfield almost precisely twelve months ago then. When we had just finally bagged loser Gus, and Arbroath were storming the top of the league. That fog-bound nick of a game in December 2021 seemed like a low point in the club's history - in terms of the result as well as the future outlook of the club (fucked in the seaside leagues). Instead we appointed Imrie a few days later, and the rest is history. 'Only' drawing at Arbroath to continue our unbeaten streak and legitimate promotion push in the Championship a year later is not a defeat. Not least because Imrie has shown this season that he's not for letting standards slip on a regular basis.

  26. Came off to receive treatment early. I'm assuming for a cut. Had to change his Jersey. The camera is right above Dougie and picking up allsorts. So far I've heard 'No good enough... fucking pish' 'Don't fucking shake yer heed either' Love that.

  28. Very sad news indeed. I did not know Bryan personally but he was a well known face around the club and on the various incarnations of this forum over the years. I enjoyed reading his blogs and have a lot of admiration for the bravery he showed, as well as his work raising awareness & money for DMD. Sincere condolences to his family and all who were close to him. As others have said, I hope the club do something to commemorate him.

  33. So sad to hear that Bryan has passed away. His cheerfulness in adversity was a lesson to all of us and I always enjoyed his chats when I was up at Scapa. My thoughts are obviously with his family and I hope they will recognise the admiration and affection we had for a great Morton man. RIP big guy.

  34. Can't help you with answer I'm afraid - but I know that Dougie would have made the blacky-whity-stripey fuckers turn out in their pants. Edit = fantastic article/interview with the old St. Mirren kit man. It's men like these who keep everything going. Props to him and everyone like him. I'm pretty sure every club at our level has one.

  37. Ability to bring people onto the board without investment (to leverage their expertise, for example) is fine. My objection is that these people then have a right of veto over MCT appointees but the MCT membership has absolutely no ability to recall them. It's entirely tilted in their favor. Balance is sorely needed.

  38. Definitely progress but there needs to be some accountability at the board level. If MCT members can propose and vote through someone should be removed at any point (or yearly instead of waiting 3 years) that might fill parts of the gap though. That should force the MCT nominee to step aside if it is one and if its not then there should be a majority MCT to vote them out from the GMFC board. The other part that I'm not sure about is that the pathway could be 5 years (2 on MCT board and waiting 3 til someone's term is up on the GMFC board). With the two points combined it's still quite a closed shop.

  39. I don’t recognise “hating” any football club as a healthy state of mind, so I take it the word is not really meant in it’s true context in this forum, however I dislike the way Thistle are described as “The Maryhill Magyars”, the “Firhill for Thrills” stuff and the luvvies who pretend to support them when it’s obviously a cover up of who they really support.
