  1. I'm not sure that it's in the best interests of the SLO to be wading into first team affairs like this tbh. While fans are looking for information, the SLO would be better off steering clear of that hospital ball and let the manager speak about it instead. In any case, there's a false either/or choice being set up here between 'panic signed haddies'/'patiently acquired quality players'. The supply of quality players gets lower as the transfer window progresses, which is why non-tinpot full-time clubs have been busy filling their squads this month rather than playing 'wait and see'.

  2. I always get the impression Morton are understaffed and people like Brendan are pulled here there and everywhere, so it must be absolutely brain damage when people complain about things being a shitshow. Things do appear to be a bit of a shitshow but I dare say certain individuals on the staff are a victim of that just as the supporters are. It's a bit late now probably, but I'd rather see a better balance between the squad size and club staff. Chop a few players (last season guys like Omar, the wee guy Wallace, whoever else I've forgotten), and get some employees in that can get us run l

  4. The Council are really overdoing it. There's hardly any risk of transmission when you're outdoors in the fresh air and when tracked and traced folk are self-isolating anyway. The club is doing the right thing by adhering to these guidelines but I hope they can talk some sense into the Council and get the restrictions lessened a bit.

  5. From that 11 today I'd like to see replacements for muirhead, McGregor, blues and hynes. Probably harsh on blues as he was ok but I think we need another option in the midfield. McGregor and Hynes also played ok in spells but both toiled as the game went on and Dunfermline targeted McGregor in the second half. Russell coming on did make a difference. I just don't see a place for muirhead in the team at all. He offers very little and when he does get the ball he tries to over complicate things. Much rather have ugwu and Oliver up top. We also need someone who can hit a decent freekick or

  6. Definitely promising signs after that performance today. Fair play to the young lads in the squad who seem to be relishing their opportunity. Big Ugwu was magnificent not just in his performance but liked that he was talking young Lewis McGregor through the game and making a point of running over to him to pat him on the back when he done something good. I like that!

  8. So we have a weekly update today which is good, but then we have this about the takeover: "There have been some discussions back and forward between both parties this week but the situation remains similar to our previous update last week. It’s important we get this right, crossing every t and dotting every i. It’s frustrating in the short term, but the long term is a community owned Greenock Morton Football Club." Remember that as of the end of May, the takeover was portrayed as being done and only pesky HMRC not getting round to reading their in-tray was holding things up for a few

  9. Come on, that’s a Hashtag Gary complaint. Being like Hashtag Gary isn’t a good look. Admittedly it’s pretty lazy and lacking a bit of thought outside the box, but hardly the biggest fuck up at the club in recent times. I’d go as far as to say that the club don’t realise how lucky they are having Brendan, not only because of the good job he does, but also because he’s friendly with so many of us. We probably let them off with more than we should because he’s the public face of Morton. Could you imagine the shit we’d be giving them if TOMB was still punting us tickets? For all the SLO

  14. Same thing here again. Phoned them earlier and was just the voicemail so I've emailed them. I'm planning on going to the game, just want to know there's a season ticket there for me to pick up tomorrow. I bought the ticket at the end of May, 2 months later to not have a season ticket on the day of the game is a complete joke. If I have any problems getting in tomorrow the MCT subscription will be getting canned, I'm very fed up chasing them for something I'm paying £240 quid for.

  15. Just a lot of word salad I believe the term is? It doesn't matter what your or my opinion of why things are the way they are or how they'd be in previous or future times. The only thing that matters is what the club are selling this season and what they are delivering, and with the current system those two things do not match.

  16. My whole point was that the manual system of contacting the club should be thrown in the bin, not that there should be a staff member sitting by the phone all day Saturday so you're not even arguing the same point you were to start with. I also don't seem to have received any confirmation of my season ticket purchase that includes terms and conditions of my purchase so I'm afraid I'll have to just go with what they've implied on their own website. There will be fans every week who wake up on match days and are feeling ill, or their child is feeling ill or many more reason and are u

  17. Remember when 'Fake Tan Iron Man' made the decision to invest all available funds into new turnstiles and a Liverpool dosser's ticketing system rather than essential infrastructure and people to do the basics?

  18. If you wanted a spot in the Cowshed or SS then you should have bought a season ticket. So long as it's at a limited 1500 capacity then I've no problem with PATG punters being placed in the other parts of the ground, and the WDE is not in any way inferior.

  20. Aberdeen are being told to crack down on fans celebrating, officials are taking the piss. Imo masks should be worn when entering through the turnstile and when in the stadium concorse. There is no risk that is being mitigated by wearing a mask whilst in the terrace or seated if distance is being maintained

  21. Saw an example of this on Facebook the other day: Now granted, that's ten times worse than what was reported from Cappielow. But clubs need to make it clear that, while a steward's primary responsibility is 'elf 'n' safety, they are still customer-facing and need to ensure that customers aren't being put off.

  23. Fans have not been 'staying away' to any significant degree. Our core support is simply not very large and never has been. You can take a look at any similar trough in the club's fortunes in the past and crowds were lower then than they are now. A long-term effort to build a larger fanbase is needed; though the greater threat right now is a sense of disillusionment from fan ownership affecting the core support that we do have.

  24. Fans can bring in their own drinks, but no cups, bottles or flasks allowed: so are they supposed to cup it in their hands or something instead? Get all this nonsense to fuck, now. This isn't on the club btw but rather the fucking losers trying to impose this token gesture nonsense.

  25. Since when did any of these Rentaknob stewards decide who gets banned and who doesn't? I've got a feeling that this 'fan ownership' thing will mean that some arsehole 'steward supervisor' type will try and get ideas above their station. That should be nipped in the bud.

  26. I've no intention of returning to Cappielow it the mask nonsense is still being enforced in an open air environment. It's an absolute farce of a situation which caused me to opt to leave at HT during the play off final. They can fuck right off with it. Agreed.

Some folk were born for this moment, to scream at 12-year-olds to pull their mask over their nose, to threaten someone with a lifetime ban for a handshake.

  29. Aye this shit is getting annoying. When desperately waiting on updates, updates are sparse but scattered all over the place when they do come. - Some info comes through the MCT socials, some through the club's. - Individual replies to fans from either (whichever one they were last logged in as). - Wee letters to members, then not bothering to post the updates from the letters properly to the wider fan base (just a post a day or two later saying to the rest of the peasants to go read the members letter). Aren't they interested in the wider fanbase anymore? - Giving quo

  30. We could really do with a quick forward/winger who could either play out wide or play off Ugwu. Oliver looks, very sensibly, to be shaping up as an attacking mid this season - at the very least deep behind a striker. I think that leaves space for a couple of quick winger/forward type players, but we need at least one. What we really lack in attack is a bit of directness and a quick change of pace. A winger and a striker would be good if the right options are there. The right back/centre back need is obvious. A good right full back/wing back would be ideal, but Ledger could move out

  31. Agree apart from Haynes who for me has struggled with O'Hara cutting onto his stronger foot (Thomas will try and do the same on the other side). Other than that concern it's been a very good half.

  32. There's only so long you can hang over for before moving to the next target and we've passed that point. Maybe if it was one or two players but we're going into our first league game about five short from where the squad should be.

  33. Absolutely worried regarding our lack of activity. I am totally for not signing any old shite but I am shocked at how little has been done player wise in the last few weeks. Worried we are under prepared and don’t want us losing 3/4 goals in these first few games until the “quality” arrives. If we are holding out for these younger players on loan from Premier League clubs then I am concerned going forward with the Ross MacIver’s and Ross MacLean’s of the world being our first choice quality signings.

  34. Same here. I phoned on Tuesday to ask where my season ticket is and was told I'd be called back. I'll be phoning again tomorrow to ask how I'll be getting into the ground when I show up on Saturday since I obviously won't have my season card or a call back by then. I get they're understaffed in the office but this is a massive issue.

  36. There is a manual system though, so that is what you want to happen right now in the event that you just can't be arsed on any given Saturday morning. You have no right to expect or demand this with your ST purchase. "There will be fans every week who wake up on match days and are feeling ill, or their child is feeling ill or many more reason and are unable to attend the match who would reasonably expect from the clubs own statements that they would be able to watch the game on a stream, meaning the current system is not fit for purpose." How did fans cope on match days prior t

  37. Sales pitches don't tend to list every single term and condition, because otherwise they wouldn't be a pitch but rather a fucking contract set out on a Twitter thread. The question is whether season ticket holders are being given a reasonable opportunity to access a stream in place of live attendance and the answer - in my view - is 'yes'. By the end of the Friday before a game you have plenty of time to make that choice, and so long as there's going to be a manual control of streaming codes, it is entirely unreasonable to contact the club on matchday because you suddenly decide that you

  38. Aye, exactly. They were sold with the option of the stream if you can't make it. Not that you can have it but you need to decide by the Friday at 5pm. Another issue is that MCT tweeted to say the process would be everyone would just be issued with codes which clearly isn't the case.

  39. I phoned on Tues to arrange my wee boys season ticket and to swap my season ticket to the stream for Sat. Person who answered of course couldn't deal with and would get someone ( Brendan I'm guessing) to call back. Still waiting for my call back 48 hours later. Phoned 3 times today, rang out to VM every time. Absolute shitshow.

  40. If a part time player is working a regular Monday to Friday job, you can't make an exception on an 'individual, case by case basis'. They can't train with the first team squad because their work completely overlaps with the current training schedule at Cappielow. To give GMFC full access to both full time and part time player markets, you need to change the training structure to a hybrid model first. Main squad training should be held in evenings rather than daytime, which can be used by those on professional deals for conditioning. Which means that there is actually no need for half of t

  41. The latter imo. It's been mentioned elsewhere we're working with a similar budget to what Hopkin was working with and we're looking for fewer players so we should be able to get bodies in. Unfortunately its an open secret within Scottish Football that we are a diddy/joke club run in an amateurish fashion thanks to the Raes. The biggest job MCT will have after keeping the lights on will be to fix that reputation. If money is an issue then it must give weight to looking at the squad being a mix of full time and part time. How many decent part time players have knocked us back over t

  42. The money we'll be offering will be shit. These are the facts sadly. Thistle/Dunfermline etc can all offer substantially better deals that us. They consistently sell double our season tickets as well. We're circling the drain of players. Yes, there might be money there, but probably not enough to attract anyone decent outwith the loan system.
