  1. Morton getting rode is par for the course these days, but signing a sex offender then having fans actively celebrating their offences is a new and troubling low, it has to be said.
  2. Nobody at all forced him to dole out new contracts to absolute shite like Muirhead, Blues and Oliver either. There’s no excuses at all for being in this position, especially when the justification for keeping Gus on was the bizarre idea that he was going to be able to build on an illustrious 9th place finish and move quickly to sign players.
  3. Right, maybe I didn't quite phrase the previous post as clearly as I may have. The Trust quite evidently became a discredited basket-case a long time ago and lost the faith of most fans many moons ago and rightly so, of that there's no doubt; at the same time though, there was also people who made a big effort to try to resurrect it thereafter and done a lot of good things that helped the club via a lot of time and effort. If people were as interested in putting themselves forward to contribute as they are to take personal pops at others who did do so, the Trust was entirely viable; indeed, MCT would arguably have been much better off taking over the Trust framework as their vehicle rather than the incoherent format it's taken so far. Some people are mouthpieces that hide behind keyboards and would never dare say what they do on here to others in person - something I'm well aware doesn't apply to yourself, and I'd more than happily have this discussion over a pint (and look forward to it too, it's always enjoyable talking all things Morton with you); others are all talk, no trousers. I also don't disagree at all that the lack of transparency from MCT is extremely poor, and frankly I have little faith in them; I'll willingly rescind what I said about them as there's a lingering suspicion that there's a huge element of self-lionising and lack of suitable skills or experience about those involved - for example, "the boy with the drum" being amongst their named group. With all due respect to him, it's not a qualification to be part of a club's ownership (for all I know he's very well suited to do so), but nonetheless I tip my hat to those who've got involved and again...although again, that doesn't at all earn a free pass. On a similar note, I'll also admit that I'm simply not interested enough these days to take any kind of active role in anything and to an extent this is all maybe a bit hypocritical, but which is why I admire anybody who does get off their computers and get involved.
  4. I always find it interesting how the folk on here who are so quick to bang on about GMST have never at any stage put themselves forward to try to contribute in any meaningful way themselves, and in some cases wouldn't even look anyone in the eye if they were in their presence. I've no real interest in defending the Trust (frankly I don't really care that much about it ), but there were plenty of folk who latched on to it in its latter days who seemed to just like to be seen to be there who offered very little. Perhaps if the people who have still seem so worked up about it had put themselves forward to contribute the Trust could have fared a lot better. None of which is to say there wasn't a lot of issues with the organisation over all, but there's that and being tedious bores whinging about nothing over it. Same goes for MCT - I think there's no end of questions, some of which really shouldn't still be hanging unanswered, but at least the people involved have went out and made something happen.
  5. FWIW, I think the season ticket package is a good and appealing one in its own right, but failing to address giving a two/three year deal to an ageing nonce without explanation isn't really on.
  6. I take it the club is just going to totally ignore the fact that we've signed a sex offender who's already been chased off then?
  7. I wouldn’t have been upset if McGinn had came to us as evidently it’s going to be a novelty to have any sort of talented player but it wouldn’t have been the greatest use of what would surely be a significant wage and an almost guaranteed starting spot when we already have Jacobs. If nothing else, McPherson’s already proven he can’t be trusted to use that pairing sensible so it’s probably for the best if the option is removed.
  8. No chance. It mattered well before the Airdrie game and Muirhead was absolute nowhere to be seen, we shouldn't have been anywhere near the play-offs. He played very well in the final game and deserves credit for that, but not a single thing more than a pat on the back and it doesn't come close to making up for scoring a whopping total of 1 league goal for the club. It's not "stepping up when it matters", it's having one good game against an absolutely knackered part-time club from a lower league. It's fine for what it is, but let's not be turning it into some kind of Maradona '86 style one-man show.
  9. Right, but seriously, when did this happen, except in the last game against Airdrie?
  10. When whoever is making decisions at Cappielow asked the manager who lead us to a 9th place finish what his plans were to improve things next season, did it not trouble them when he said “well, I’m going to sign all of the same players again and do the exact same things that failed before”?
  11. This is becoming a joke. Muirhead had one good game in two years.
  12. It’s not harsh at all, he is utter shite and often barely reaches that level by dint of being completely invisible.
  13. Whatever he’s getting paid is irrelevant, he’s spent the last two seasons being utter shite and shouldn’t be rewarded with yet another contract. I made this point in relation to McPherson being kept on, but it’s worth repeating and has been true for a long time: the complete and utter lack of any kind of standards or basic expectations at Morton are as big a part of our constant failures as anything. Even the minimal demands for a Championship struggler should dictate that players like Blues get punted, if we’re ever going to achieve anything we need to have far more pride in the jersey than making excuses for allowing shite players to make an easy living from the club for three fuckin years.
  14. Says far more about them than Blues tbh. Blues is absolutely rotten. I suspect we’re going to end up with most of season’s regular 14 or so players, and the exact same outcome is likely to happen.
  15. The rebuild is certainly going well.
