  1. 2 year deal is madness. 2 year deal for Baird too if I'm not mistaken. Imrie has built up some trust after last season but I'm a bit concerned so far.
  2. Bit of a meh signing. Solid enough but was hoping for better. Cannot imagine we'll be playing a 4 at the back if that's now Baird and Lithgow signed up, and then possibly McLean.
  3. Not overly bothered about Russell and Ledger but really concerned that we've decided to offer the likes of Oliver and McLean new deals. Oliver in particular - baffling. If they all accept then that's us sorted in CM. Jacobs, Lyon, Blues, Wilson and McGrattan all there - it's an area we really needed to improve and it's just more of the same old. Hmmmm.
  4. One of the worst things Gus did was sign the likes of Hynes on a 2 year deal after one decent game he had against QoS last season. Jacobs on a 2 (or was it 3??!!) year deal was another peculiar decision. He's left us with some utter shite for the foreseeable.
  5. Bit of a shambles end to the season. Disappointed we didn't at least try go for 6th spot - not sure what the difference in prize money is but it's probably a players wage. Youth players clearly not good enough. King is OK but should go out on loan. McGregor too. Easdale should be released immediately. He wouldn't get a game for an under 10's team. Big summer ahead.
  6. Still stand by my opinion of Easdale being the worst Morton player there's ever been in my lifetime.
  7. Assuming we're going for the 4-3-3 formation, I'd have Lyon in as the holding midfielder in that. Maybe keep Wilson as cover for him but I wouldn't be bothered if he leaves. I reckon Imrie will offer him a new deal though as he seems to like him. Try and get rid of Jacobs as he's just not very good. I'm sure Queens will take him back. Wish him all the best but we can get better. Blues I'm really undecided on and keep changing my opinion on it. Probably in thanks for your efforts but release camp at the moment. Just a thing on Easdale. I think he could be one of the worst ever Morton players, in my lifetime anyway. I really hope he's on peanuts because what a waste of money it is having him on the books. Feel a bit sorry watching him in all honesty, just seems to lack any sort of footballing intelligence and ability.
  8. I agree with all of this bar the Ugwu part. He was pretty poor today despite being assaulted every time he went up for a ball but overall in the season I think he's earned a new contract. What we need is another option when it's not working with him. Oliver's not good enough and Easdale shouldn't be near a professional outfit. Blues is a tough one. He pops up in the box every so often and it's good to have a midfielder that can do that but he just doesn't contribute enough in the midfield play for me. Excluding loan players I'd Keep: Hamilton, Strapp, Russell, probably Wilson, Muirhead, Ugwu Get rid: Ledger, McLean, Hynes (if we can agree to terminate the contract), Jacobs (the same), Blues, Oliver Loan out the likes of King, McGregor, Easdale who aren't ready yet or in Easdale's case will never be ready. Anyway it will take a clusterfuck of results to see us finish 9th. Only really need a point because of goal difference but still a worrying situation .
  9. I want to see Lyon back in the CDM position that he was bossing before being unfairly dropped for Wilson. Not sure what's going on there but we are in much more control of the midfield and more effective in attack when he plays.
  10. The Willie Column show in the first half with a genuinely baffling decision. Second half was just flat, aimless balls to Ugwu who was ineffective, midfield was posted missing all game. Looking over our shoulders again when we really should be safe by now. Think the first 6 or 7 games of Imrie's time masked the lack of quality we have. Too many players who are just not good enough and who we should be looking to move on.
  11. That is one of the worst refereeing decisions I've seen at Cappielow for a long time. Abysmal
  12. 100%. I do think we should be aiming for better for next season in our starting XI but he's definitely worth keeping as a squad player. He's scored some massive goals for us in his time so far - three against Airdrie in the playoff final last season for starters to keep us up. Even this season, from the top of my head he's scored the winner against Raith, the winner against Partick, the equaliser against Raith at home, never mind some of his assists. That's five points gained at least by his goal contributions. He's a big player for us and one we should definitely be rewarding with another contract.
  13. Assuming Arbroath don't get promoted, then Imrie absolutely deserves Manager of the Season. What a fucking job he's done. Transforming players like Lithgow, Strapp, Blues, Reilly and Muirhead. Two league defeats since he took charge at Christmas. Unbeaten home record since he came in. This is a team that had cut adrift in 10th by February vibes to it and most likely we might finish in the top half. It's an extraordinary achievement and it's all down to Imrie. Get the contract out and give him what he wants!
  14. 'There's only one Robbie Muirhead' being sung around Starks Park today - who would have thought that would have happened after the hand gestures in the 6-1 Inverness game. An absolute superb bit of skill and finish for the goal. What a job Imrie has done - only 2 defeats since he came in. Really excited to see what he can do with a full pre season and his own squad. Get in thereee!
  15. Squeaky bum time. Really could do with a win on Saturday.
  16. Wilson, Strapp and McEntee all superb. Thought Oliver was great as well when he came on. Special mention to Ugwu who I thought was great too after some stick in the last few weeks. Everything that you want from a centre forward. It's another point but it's two points dropped. Referee an absolute shambles and has cost us that as Kilmarnock were never scoring in a million years. We're effectively 9 ahead of Dunfermline with us having a better goal difference so I'm pretty confident we'll be OK now.
  17. Hynes just looked lost. He's not good enough but thanks to Gus, we've got him for another year. Hopefully we can try get some sort of mutual agreement and let him go. Same with Jacobs.
  18. It's another point on the board and that's all that really matters but we just can't get away from 9th. I just don't think the 5-3-2 works. Midfield presence is not there and the amount of times Ayr had a free shot from the edge of the box was worrying. Subs were too late but hopefully Imrie can learn from that.
  19. Stewards galore today. Some standing within the seating area of the Cowshed for some bizarre reason blocking the view of the pitch.
  20. I've not been as nervous watching Morton for a long time. Stinking performance but deserved nothing from that. Dunfermline battered us but it's another game down and if we keep getting points then we'll be OK. McEntee is an outstanding defender - MOTM again. Special mention to Kyle Jacobs who was absolutely appalling when he came on, and also losing his man at the corner. Thought the subs were badly timed tonight. Get it so far up Michael Stewart, Learned Crichton and Jack Ross BTW. Incredibly bias east coast bias all night.
  21. Draw would be fine but a win would see us safe from the bottom two I reckon and perhaps may see us make a late charge for 4th - but that's probably too much to ask. Oliver in for Jacobs and I'd be tempted to fit Muirhead in somehow but not sure where. Not decided yet if I'm going. Fiver entry is appealing.
  22. The subs changed that. McGrattan needs to start going forward. Bit of pace, skill and composure in the final 3rd. Everything Jacobs hasn't got unfortunately. Another big goal from Muirhead and a nice GIRFUY celebrations. Special mention to Hamilton's save right before our equaliser. Brilliant.
  23. Sensational. Get it so far up those utter fannies. What a club.
  24. Really poor again. Just can't see where the goals are going to come from. We seemed to have reverted back to Gus/Hopkin ball.
  25. OK, we were 2nd to every ball, 2nd best in every 50/50 and played continuous hoofball after the first 15 minutes. We played some nice stuff in the first part of the game with Brandon getting a lot of joy down the right. Reilly should have scored, Ugwu should have scored, Blues probably should have scored and McEntee was unlucky with his effort off the line. Thereafter we were a shambles and the back 5 were all over the place. We've been pretty poor overall since Imrie's touchline ban and the dropping of Reece Lyon. No coincidence.
