  1. Another brutal watch. One chance for Muirhead in the first half and a half chance for him in the second. That was it. Reilly and Allan offer absolutely nothing. Knowles done nothing too when he came on. Oliver looks a shadow of the player I liked under Duffy. Muirhead was classic Muirhead. Far too many passengers. Felt for McEntee playing out on the right, he did ok for what was an unnatural position but again shows up how imbalanced the squad is with him and Muirhead on the right. Thought Russell did well but not much happening in front of him. Really dont see a way out of us. Badly need Gozie back to keep us up the park and create some chances. 2 wins in 18 league games. Gus can just feck off now. We are going down.
  2. What chance have you got when McEntee and Muirhead are your right side options. Awful defending, absolutely awful. Amazed we are still drawing.
  3. 2 wins in 17 league games- 11.8% win rate. 7 wins in his 28 games in charge( in 90 mins)- 25% win rate ( 4 of those 7 wins against lower league opposition and one against Celtic under 14s) It's time to go Gus.
  4. No post match interview with Gus after Montrose, no pre match with Gus on Inverness. New owners, same old shite. Thought half the new board were Marketing experts??
  5. In true Kevin Keegan style, I'd fecking love to go down there in a few weeks and scud them like we did at Falkirk. Absolutely convinced McGinty had an ulterior motive in that Arbroath game so hopefully he plays and has a nightmare.
  6. Starting 11 something like this, Hamilton Ledger Lithgow McEntee Strapp Jacobs Oksanen Blues Allan Ugwu Reilly Bench- Wylie, McLean, Russell, Lyon, Muirhead, Knowles, Oliver. Certainly looks a lot stronger than it did on Saturday. I think the Newcastle and Brentford boys will be expecting to play most weeks, Reilly too. Knowles might need to play the impact sub role for now.
  7. Allan been on bench for Newcastle a few times and came on and set up joelinton on his debut in the FA Cup against Rochdale. Looks very quick. Impressed with those signings. Clearly the money was there and we were playing the waiting game to save a few quid but buzzing to see what impact these guys have. Been a tough few weeks supporting Morton but hopefully we can kick on and challenge for top 4 and get this takeover completed.
  8. Not entirely convinced that's a teaser, it's very unlike Morton to do such a thing, prob a typo!
  9. Wonder if MCT regret the decision to buy the club? Directors stepping down, leadership team members moving on, many members pissed off, uncertainty and lengthy delays around the takeover, inexperienced candidates to replace outgoing board members, a general manager who has never worked anywhere near this level before, a good few board/leadership members with marketing experience yet our communications in the main has been feckin awful, too skint to have even a 16 man first team squad by the end of August. It's been some start lads. MCT are out of their depth. I hope to feck they can turn it around but I fear the worst.
  10. He's not talked about positions because no one at the club asked him about recruitment when we conduct our 2 minute interviews with him. He may well have mentioned it in the Tele but im not paying a subscription to read basic info on the club which should be available via our official streams. Going by the latest MCT, we might be waiting a little longer for our next signings.
  11. Reilly and Ugwu is a very decent forward line for this league as long as we can create chances for them. If the next couple are of similar quality, I'll be happy enough.
  12. Unless the 470k budget ( by 4 chartered accountants ill have you know) has been cut, then he should have more than enough in his kitty to get the required players in. Our budget is meant to be more than last year and the same as Hopkins 1st season. He also willingly kept Robbie Muirhead so if he moans about budget he can fuck off. Get the feeling we have waited to the very last minute to avoid paying wages out. If MCT have cut the budget making us an absolute shitshow, they should never have bought the club in the first place and Crawford would have been forced to sell to one of those other interested parties. Would love to know these "behind the scenes" reason Gus spoke about yesterday. Scunnered.
  13. Think i'll be asking for my money back if the badge is as bad as it looks on that top.
  14. On Oliver, there absolutely was. Impossible not to have contact the way the boy left his leg in.
  15. Yet not out on our official channel 5 days later.... Failing with the basics time after time. On their pen BTW, exact same as ours. Jacobs leaves a leg in, misses the ball, boy falls over it, 2 stonewallers.
  16. Worst case scenario for an out of towner, buy a ticket online for the Thistle end any time up until kick off and hope they let you jump over to the away end. Really don't get why Thistle wouldn't have ticket sales/cash gate for away fans on match day. Surely every penny counts for them after moaning like a bitch about the grant money/cost of relegation.
  17. There was one on Sunday. No real update though.
  18. Around 1300 Morton fans for our first proper game back in 18 months is really really poor. Looking back at previous seasons, we had around 2000 under the snake when we started the 2018-2019 season for games against Queens and County but crowds started to fall under JJ and they have never really recovered since. There was a feel good factor that pre season with snake impressing, signing some good players and the fans bought into it, selling over 1100 season tickets. Compare that to this season and its night and day. MCT have a massive job on their hands, firstly ensuring crowds don't fall further and secondly attracting back the 5-600 who have chucked it over the last 3 years. If they can, it adds an extra 200k/year in revenue. Hope they manage it but I'm not convinced.
  19. I remember the boy Barr talking about how there is a marketing strategy in place this year to improve club engagement and communication, we don't even have a preview of the game tomorrow! No manager thoughts on the game or his thoughts on our new signing! No match report or preview for the Hamilton game, no link to the interview with the new signing. Our news feed is mostly made up of lottery numbers. It's an absolute embarrassment. What happened to the weekly update? An absolute basic requirement should be a match preview and report and pre and post manager interviews for every single game. I'd guess every other SPFL team would have match reports and previews on their site. Feck, most junior clubs do. Why do we not have hospitality up and running like other clubs? Easy money earner. No wonder fans just can't be arsed anymore, we are an absolute shambles from top to bottom and the club don't seem to give a feck. Welcome back but...
