  1. Or they could just play them at 3pm as scheduled. The SFA should be getting told to fuck right off by every single club.

  2. Aye, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll boost the budget, though. If Golden Casket are at the helm, it’ll only mean that the money raised will go to the squad, saving GC a few quid on what they had budgeted for in the first place. It’s a “no” from me for putting my hand in my pocket beyond what is absolutely necessary until such time as I trust Morton’s owners.

  3. I'm about to flip a coin. I hope it turns up Heads. But that requires a 100% success rate, which is practically impossible.

  4. Yep, this is nothing to how it was when Diana died. People openly grieving for a woman they'd never met in their lives. When London Bridge drops, the cry-wankers will be out in force, fuelled by the BBC while Nicholas Witchell masturbates furiously.

  5. Good call. Once McPherson is not offered the post, we should enshrine it in all future contracts that is not actually the job of the manager/head coach to play pretend 4D chess by picking and choosing what games they want to win most and fanny around with the rest on some spurious grounds of 'freshness'. Pick your strongest available team, win games as convincingly as possible, and use whatever confidence boost you get to try and do it again. Until we are juggling the Club World Cup with our Champions' League defence, that's the fucking task.

  6. Our game against Hearts on 17th April will be rearranged because of our Scottish Cup commitments. Hearts have no such issues, but fortunately, League One minnows “Partick Thistle” are out of action that day, so maybe they could arrange a fundraising friendly with their wee pals.

  7. There’s been nothing like the hysteria here as there was at the time of Diana’s death, though. There’s a bit of public grief, and the media are of course all over it, but if anyone thinks this comes close to that, they’re in for a rude awakening when Liz pops her clogs.

  8. Results we want for maximum hilarity: Round 25 Arbroath v Ayr: Arbroath win. Morton v Hearts: sneak a draw. Round 26 Morton v Alloa (r): thumping home win. Ayr v Queen of the South: Queens win Arbroath draw v whoever they're playing. Leaving the table as follows going into the final day: Morton 30 Arbroath 30 The Little People 27 Thereby leaving the Arbroath v Morton game to play out like West Germany v Austria in the 1982 World Cup, with David 'Hoppy' Hopkin furiously stalking the touchline at Inverness with absolutely nothing he can

  10. I wouldn't give a deal to any of our forward players whether we stay up or not. We are where we are right now because they're not of the required standard or consistency (i.e. Nesbitt) to get the job done for us. It's time for a full clear out in those positions regardless of which league we play in.

  11. Ledger has played a huge amount of minutes this season with not much mention. I regard this as a good thing. I'd certainly make him one of the few players to be offered a new deal - alternatives notwithstanding.

  12. Just catching up on the interviews and interesting to hear Nesbitt talking about Ledger being so consistent even out of position. Fjortoft gets a lot of credit but I'd be happier if we kept Ledger from. The two.

  14. Quite the opposite, I’d suggest Diana’s death was the watershed moment that grief culture became such a massive thing outwith it’s spiritual home of Merseyside. I’d never really seen anything like it until that point in my life, and while there’s not really been anything like it since (including Phil’s death the other day) I’d argue that in the UK folk have been progressively more hysterical about high profile passings.

  15. It was inevitable. Every two-bit commentator, politician, c-list celeb etc have been falling over themselves to show their subservience to the crown. What Philip's demise has to do with football at this level in Scotland is though beyond me. First they cancel Eastenders now Saturday football.

  16. A minute's silence is appropriate enough but unless it's a public holiday the games should be going ahead as normal.

  17. The Little People are the ones to watch. Would have taken a draw before kick-off and results elsewhere have not done us any harm. Credit to the squad for bouncing back from the heavy defeat midweek. If we cannot take at least 5 points from Hearts (h) who have nothing to play for, Alloa (h) who will likely be already relegated and the Arbroath game then we simply don't deserve to stay in the division. Our fate is well within our own hands, which might not have been the case with a different set of results today.

  20. I see that result leaves one of Scottish football's ambulance chasing grievance-mongers 'Partick Family Club Thistle' seven points from the top but just five above their latest relegation play-off 'trap door'. Dunt them into the bottom half split first and the rest can fall into place quite nicely.

  21. The Dumbarton Survival Express is gathering steam. 2-1 win over East Fife tonight. Ross Forbes missed a penalty... ... but Greenockian Adam Frizzell scored one James Wallace played 87 minutes and was described as "good" Ruaridh Langan played 42 minutes, was subbed off for Rabin Omar; the latter also described as "good" Apparently EF's goal wasn't Ramsbottom's fault

  22. Great point, well made. Now, a commemoration and celebration at the first post-Rae era game, now that I will happily throw money at.

  23. Agreed. Also, perhaps it’s being a wee bit cynical but I’m not really in any great rush to be congratulating the club for organising a raffle. It’s very far from a big achievement.

  24. Just a shame that Ramsbottom has already been snapped up by another useless manager.

  25. The way things are looking they might not even make the top five split, never mind the the top four for the playoffs. Ayr having Dunfermline this Saturday is giving me the fear. Dunfermline are 10 away games without a win in the league, their only away win was at Alloa at the start of the season. If Ayr win and we lose catching them will look unrealistic.

  27. Not forgetting him scoring on his debut as they beat us 1-0 at Cappielow in January. How costly will the decision to try to pocket the £500K grant while hoping to scrape through the season with no signings and a fitness coach in charge end up being? In addition to other clubs strengthening properly in January, while we didn't sign anyone until the end of the month when that Arbroath defeat made them face the obvious reality of a relegation battle and we were flailing around for anyone we could get, McElhone's spell in charge saw two games with Ayr, one with Arbroath and one with Alloa.

  28. It's a truncated season in any case, and we have a young squad. Only if players are nursing injuries or on the verge of breaking a hip - Celtic refusing to rest Kieran Tierney comes to mind - should we be rotating in such circumstances. Don't think you can accuse the Morton squad of being in it for the money. This is the absolute nadir of the full-time game. If they wanted a wedge of cash for nothing they could make a wee wedge at Kelty or some mob like that and get a proper job on the side.

  29. The annoying thing about our second biggest humping of the season is that we've played worse this season and still come away with something. The first Ayr game for example, when we were pish for 83 minutes, and still somehow managed to win. The scoreline tonight was harsh, but the result was fair. If we had just one clinical finisher in the team like Todorov was tonight, we'd be challenging for a play-off place instead of fighting relegation.

  30. We conceded six goals against ICT this season. One was that shambles of the passback and indirect freekick, another the great strike for the fourth tonight. The other four were all McGinty's fault.

  31. The options for shaking up the team may have been limited for Gus, but he’s abjectly failing to identify any of them. You simply can’t play McGinty every week then expect anything other than relegation, for starters.

  32. Dead cat bounce a win on Saturday and make sure that we have a fifth lined up to do the same against Arbroath.

  34. Even if we clamber out of this, results like this, the display on Saturday and some wild selection decisions/subs means it's a 'nope' on McPherson's audition for the manager's post from me.

  35. I find the decision to take off the guy who just scored mental. Surely confidence is up, especially as a striker. Give him 5, see how it goes. Crazy.

  36. It's just a question of how many here. We were the better team for 35 minutes, then conceded our worst goal of the season so far and now we've collapsed. The first one is utter nonsense but the second is appalling as well - if McGinty had bothered his arse to get within three yards of his man at any point that wouldn't have happened. I see the logic of having three centre backs to tighten things up when you're weak defensively. There's absolutely no point in doing that when one of them is McGinty, because he's a guaranteed goal for your opposition every week. He should be on Todorov

  37. 5 at the back has to go it hasn't worked since it took QOTS by surprise. We are back playing the way we were under hopkin. Get the fraud of a captain off the park he is incapable of doing anything productive and is prone to stupid mistakes and giving the ball away.

  38. Stunned at how quickly that half turned on such a crazy rush of blood moment from McGinn, followed by a mental decision from McAdams to pick up the ball. We just absolutely collapsed after a very even opening 30-35 minutes. I see no way back into this one now. Hoping for a Dundee win over Ayr to at least keep things as they were before the game.

  39. Even less than that for myself. I've had no interest in this season, the fact that we are playing football this season when everything else has been on hold has made it farcical.
