  1. Just noticed Lyon got scudded 5-1 off Elgin today as well. You can take the boy out of Morton...
  2. No I agree with you. I meant get them back and set us up with the back five again to make us hard to beat. These tactics aren't working with the players we have and no matter what squad members are chosen to play still nothing is going to change in terms of performance. Back five with two guys winning every header and try and shitfest and bully our way to safety seems like the best option at this point, at least until January.
  3. Feels like a real watershed performance for the season. Need Baird and Lithgow back and set us up as hard to beat as there is absolutely zero creativity in midfield or attack. Thought we actually started okay as well although Partick made it really easy for us with their high line but as soon as they equalised we absolutely fell apart.
  4. Struggling with every cross and set piece in to the box. Really missing at least one of Baird/Lithgow.
  5. Announce Marc Mcnulty until January if he is still free and not injured.
  6. Imrie has clearly been trying to get strikers in this whole period as he's said in interviews that he's missed out on a few. In an ideal world we desperately need one in even until January when there are better options but I'm not sure what options are even available at the moment. Only name I've really seen people mention on here over the summer is Innes Cameron but big sectarian lafferty has surely put an end to multiple clubs hopes of loaning him. Is there any other proven strikers not getting game time? Maybe Imrie will decide in the end to not bring in someone who's not up to the level required just for the sake of it and rather save that budget towards a better striker in January. It would be extremely risky but if the people available aren't going to kick up any trees here then he might see it as not losing out on much.
  7. Watched highlights and hard to tell with the Jai one due to camera angle and fans head being in the way. Definitely a foul on Jai and then Ayr player gets up first and is in his face then you see him hold his face like he's been hit. Seems a bit strange to me though that neither manager thought it was a sending off despite being right beside it and there is no reaction from the assistant referee or any of the Ayr players as if their teammate has just been hit while the Morton players have no idea why he's been sent off. Baird is a bit more of a lunge than I remember seeing it in real time but still nowhere near a red card challenge.
  8. I don't disagree with a lot of that. I'd also agree that in his eyes with hindsight after the past week that he now has to realise where that line is that he cannot cross anymore, but I don't think going in to Saturdays game that he should be expected to know that getting the ball out the net after a late goal is crossing the line, or that even after Saturdays incident that he should go in to last night's game thinking that being pulled down on top of an opponent is going to result in a red card. He knows where the line he's being judged is now after this week so there's little room left for excuses going forward but I don't think any footballer could go in to those two games expecting to know that these ridiculous decisions were the line in the sand referees have drawn for them. We are only in September so it's far too early for me to decide whether we should extend his contract or not. I'd be extremely surprised if he ended up with 5/6 red cards after never receiving one in his career before this season but if that happens then obviously decisions need to be made on what's best for the club and the squad next season.
  9. I've no issues with anyone saying his disciplinary record has been terrible this season and he's created a rod for his own back with referees the same way say a Morelos or Xhaka does for Rangers and Arsenal. That doesn't mean that referees should just get to send players like that off for whatever they want and fans just have to accept it because they've picked up a few silly bookings previously.
  10. Wasn't talking about you, there's definitely situations he gets himself in to that he should stay away from so I agree with you on that, but you get some players like that who need to play a bit closer to the edge than most and judging on his career so far he's always been able to toe that line. The reaction on social media especially from some fans during and after the game was really harsh on him considering how undeserved both reds have been. For all his faults and lack of end product i for one i am absolutely dreading watching this team play without him in the coming games
  11. Don't really get the people saying he's a liability etc. He's never had a red card in his career before this season and two of the three he's had this season have been undeserved. Not sure if it's just a Quitongo thing with some fans, as if some other players had been wrongfully sent off two games in a row you'd think they'd be raging at the officials rather than the player.
  12. Good win in the circumstances. Decent draw next round please.
  13. Is that a ball boy with a bit of paper telling Schwake which way to dive between each pen?
