  1. I personally think it should be a legal requirement to hate something which is a festering boil on the arse of Glasgow.
  2. What? I’m 300 miles from Cappielow and don’t get up as often as I’d like. But when I can make the trip up, I’m there to see a game, not to be an amateur psychologist or behavioural therapist along with the ‘general consensus’ - whoever they are. Maybe you’d mistakenly wandered into the psychoanalyst’s stand? I’ve certainly never witnessed groups of fans at Cappielow analysing anything other than the state of that week’s pies or which bin pub they’d hit before the game. The only ‘transference’ I’ve ever seen is a pie from hand to mouth in the cowshed. You’re making yourself look like a bit of a chump.
  3. Maybe there’s still hope. Most people (myself included) thought that Lewis Strapp was 100% away.
  4. I don’t understand DOT’s point of view, either. As a relative newcomer to the forum, I can’t help noticing the number of members on here who wish players well when they move on - irrespective of whether they’ve performed consistently or not. Those type of posts don’t come across as being written by baying loonies determined to criticise anyone at the drop of a hat. From where I’m standing, the overwhelming number of comments and posts on here are well-reasoned, well thought-out, fair, objective - and usually accurate. Also (and FWIW) if such a vast list of players had indeed been ‘driven out’ by fans, all that tells me is that there must be a hell of a lot of snowflakes playing fitba. Getting stick from the fans when you fuck up goes with the territory.
  5. Everyone in this thread who’s repeatedly made the point that Morton aren’t immune to the stratospheric cost increases of everything are 100% correct. And for the club, it’s not just about a projected £36k utility bill rise, but also about every penny they spend on anything - the catering supplies they buy for hospitality, the beer behind the bar, the staff costs, bits and bobs of maintenance on the ground - a whole raft of invisible stuff whose price is heading skyward. And it’s not just larger businesses who are having to pass on cost increases to their customers. I’m a one-man-band joiner - the cost of timber has doubled in a year, most hardware and consumables such as blades, cutters and adhesives aren’t far behind - so those increases have to be passed onto the customer. To me - an increase in gate cost was inevitable, and I also don’t think a couple of quid is unreasonable.
  6. To be fair, everyone down here said exactly the same thing when Derby signed Dave Mackay back in the 70’s. Too old, too fat and way past his sell-by date. But the contribution he subsequently made to the club’s progress was astounding. Like all the signings so far - only time will tell.
  7. Richard Wilson is from Greenock??? !!!! I don't believe it.
  8. They’re all massive Father Ted fans. The wearing of the man-bra is done in homage to ‘The Mainland’ episode featuring the ‘I Don’t Believe It’ bloke out of ‘One Foot In The Grave’. Just ask @BishopBrennan
  9. I never thought it would happen. But so, so glad that it has. I think it’s possibly largely a result of Dougie’s obvious passion and commitment to succeed, along with his powers of persuasion. Who knows. Brilliant news. I still think he should get the captain’s armband, and I can’t think of anyone in the squad better qualified to lead by example.
  10. Agreed. I liked Gozie and he had some great moments. But you never knew which version of him would run out onto the pitch - the sharp, aware, creative, threatening and productive version, or the lumbering, seemingly unaware-of-everything version who didn’t have the slightest effect on the outcome of a game. Top lad though, and I wish him well. Dougie has to find a replacement who isn’t just good - he has to be consistently good.
  11. Bloody hell. I hope they've got plenty of diesel for the coach - that's a big long list.
  12. I wish I had a crystal ball and knew what Lewis Strapp was going to do. For me, he was probably Morton’s best player last season. It’s worrying that nothing’s moved in that direction yet.
  13. Correct. And everyone in the West Midlands has a speech impediment, all 2.5 million of them. Not as bad as Merseyside, though.
  14. That's because they all got eaten by 3-bawed dugs.
