  1. Quite possibly. It was over a decade ago anyway and I don't care that much about it. Next. ETA: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/h/hibernian/4752964.stm That date was about right, as he was in the news at the time. The sportsmans dinner was at the Greenock Town Hall within a few weeks of it. Andy McLaren played for Morton at the time, him and big Gillian Donaldson were always out smoking at the same time as me.
  2. I once bid £100 for his Locomotiv Moscow top at the Sportsmans dinner c.2005. I never won it. Bullet dodged.
  3. More to the point, if Chris Chris McEleny is being trumpeted as the the future Saviour of the SNP as he is a 'guid, working-class tradesman' like the sort that Yogi Hughes would love in his team, then the future looks like a right laugh.

  5. The bit in bold, I love the way that you get away with these stereotypes. It is no surprise that the places experiencing the second spike in England are places with large ethnic populations - Leicester, Bradford, Blackburn, Manchester, Rochdale, Burnley etc. My experience is that certain ethnic groups are worse than others at adhering to social distancing rules with those of the Indian Subcontinent being the worst culprits, along with the Chinese.

  7. I reckon they will both end up at some shite lowland league outfit like East Kilbride or BSC Glasgow or something like that.
  8. SWA!?! Is that a politically correct version of NWA?

  10. Check this out, a real smooth and sexy song from an album they forgot they recorded, probably as they were too wrecked at the time: Genius.
  11. A beautiful singer, dies aged 53. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-53558346
  12. i'm gonna sign for them too then.
  13. I know that, I just found it very ironic. I prefer a BLT with a crescent of crisps. The thing about 'fan ownership' will mean Rainbow Flags in the Cowshed along with NHS hearts on the shirts, vegan Pies and we will be watching 'Football for Punks' like all the F-CUM and Whitehawk fannies. It's gonna happen.
  14. This: https://www.greenocktelegraph.co.uk/news/18578901.morton-paid-special-tribute-late-chairman/ When other clubs are putting Rainbow Flags and 'Black Lives Matter' patches on their shirts, Morton are putting 'One in a Million' on ours: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/may/08/guns-n-roses-remove-song-homophobic-racist-language-one-million-reissue-album Its not like Morton to be out of step with the times. It could only be us.
  15. I just glanced quickly at your post and saw the big W avatar next to you saying it was rank. I thought it was appropriate somehow. Next.
  16. Not Morton related whatsoever, this has to be one of the best new football shirts I've seen in years: Given the choice between spending c.£50 on a Morton shirt or that one above, and the Smiths/Vision Sports/Est1874 effort would not be getting my money. ETA: I knew it reminded me of World Cup 1990 somehow:
  17. The two paragraphs in bold contradict each other.
  18. The pitch at Chester City was under that amount of water hence why that game was called off and the Lancaster game was arranged at short notice, only for it to be called off as well just before kick-off. Apparently JTT's team of chancers and sand-dancers were holed up in a Travelodge off the M6 at the time. Speaking of Chester City and chancers, apparently our mate the podcaster has taken over their social media now.
  19. We were supposed to be playing Lancaster there in a hastily arranged pre-season friendly in 2007, which got called off shortly before kick-off as there was a torrential downpour.
  20. Hopkin - his promotion to the EPL was around 1997/8. George Graham signed him for Leeds shortly afterwards. McAllister - I thought he came on as a sub in that game?
  21. Whatever happened to QuickDraw, WeeManTon, Johnny Bravo and all the others too? Maybe they've all gone to drive the Honda Jazz in the sky.
  22. Have we really though?
