  1. I wasn't impressed with Baird first time but I trust Imrie to get the best out of him.
  2. I realise it's an enormous jump in levels but there's a young boy at Largs Thistle just now called William Sewell who's just banged in 41 goals this season. He's a very composed finisher with pace to burn. I'd suggest he's more worthy of a look than retaining the likes of Ecky Easdale. Apparently a few senior clubs sniffing about already.
  3. There's a female steward who needs emptied from her position. Any time I've been at Cappielow she's been at the centre of any flashpoint and her attitude stinks. Short in height, long brown hair with a council facelift.
  4. I was thinking the same watching on TV. I hadn't really seen it until now except in brief flashes but I can see why Imrie brought him in now. Cooncil Darren Fletcher. Let's be honest though, playing football like that won't be likely to bring back the fans in huge numbers but it's an effective and proven way to be successful in this league as Livi proved.
  5. Whereas Allan Mahood says he was a bully and a prick.
  6. That's the best post I've seen from you in circa 20 years and potentially one of the best ever on this forum. This needs more likes.
  7. Agreed. Hopefully the end of the one year deal nonsense with which I believe we were shooting ourselves in the foot with.
  8. I'm not "nailing my colours to his mast" what a ridiculous thing to say. I'm not up to speed on how the law works in this case, I was merely going by what I read on wikipedia about it last night. I've no urge to delve any deeper into it.
  9. Even so tagging someone as a rapist on the balance of probability? That's so fucked up. Why did the Scottish legal authorities decide not to pursue a prosecution? I'm only reading about this now and it seems a bizarre case altogether.
  10. This has always annoyed me. Goodwilie has never been found guilty in a court of law. I'm not saying he wasn't guilty and I guess we'll never know but the fact he was only pursued through a civil action and was convicted on the balance of probability just doesn't sit well with me. Have folk forgotten that his co-accused played for us?
  11. I'm really sorry for your loss CHC. I never made the connection. I'm assuming the down vote from Stuart Duncan was a mistake. RIP Tiger 😩
  12. MCT are running the show. We've therefore got no money. Do keep up. We'll be getting the absolute dregs.
  13. I started at 4 and and reached 5 a few months ago.
  14. You seem like a right fanny. The type of fan who'll clap the club I love into its grave.
  15. I couldn't give a fuck about Lithgow in all honesty. I don't understand how anyone can get so worked up about it after so much time.
  16. In amongst my bitterness it does seem that there appears to be one bad apple upsetting things. Gordon Ritchie is the name I keep hearing popping up.
  17. Get fan ownership and MCT to fuck asap. An absolute disaster from day one.
  18. Why? At the moment your contribution to MCT is money down the drain. At least if we had competent owners running the club you'd almost certainly see your money produce a far more successful team on the park if it went solely towards the playing budget. I'd be on board with that and maybe I'm off the mark but I'd suggest many more would be in the same boat. The reason Arbroath are waltzing past us is because we have absolute Muppets trying to run the show on the back of 800 subscribers to this disastrous model. We also have no wriggle room to enforce change as we'll be perched on a continual financial precipice under MCT. I know this was also the case under Rae but it doesn't have to be the case going forward. We'll revisit this chat in a year when we're treading water in league one for now I'm out.
  19. I was told what that offer was recently and we've dodged a bullet. Morton would suddenly become a far more attractive proposition to buyers if MCT was there as a vehicle to boost the playing budget and supplement wages every season going forward. I'd be all for that but outright ownership at our level? It's madness as we're currently realising as the days and weeks go by.
  20. All you're doing is reinforcing what I'm saying about large swathes of our fanbase simply accepting our fate. There won't be any gradual improvement under MCT, only managed decline. Raging is stretching it a bit, I'm too apathetic to be raging. I rarely even visit this forum anymore, I was only compelled to post when I listened to that pitiful Q&A. I've been to one game all season and I've no idea when I'll return, that's a position I never thought I'd find myself in as a hardcore supporter who up until recent seasons rarely missed a game home or away. Tbh it saddens me to feel this way but I'm not prepared to endorse the current farce by contributing financially where the club can't even be arsed getting the basics right. I'd rather spend time with my daughter on a Saturday than show blind faith based on the promise of jam tomorrow. Some other mug can take the baton off me in that respect. You shriek about ultra-competent owners? I'm not asking for that at all but just for once in 34 years id like us simply to be run with a basic degree of competence and take it from there.
  21. Look at St Johnstone. A core support of around 2500 even now yet double cup winners last season and regularly punching levels above themselves. The only advantage they've had over us - albeit major - was McDiarmid park effectively being handed to them. In that respect a lot of our current problems can be traced all the way back to John Wilson who had control of the club at a time when we had football grants available and a conveyor belt of talent being sold for substantial amounts; which brings me back to my original statement, we've been grossly mismanaged for decades.
  22. If that's true they must be run by the local knitting bee.
  23. Sorry but I can't accept that nonsense at all when I see clubs of similar or lesser stature leaving us in their shadow both on and off the park. Morton fans are almost conditioned to accept our fate and where our standing in Scottish football lies. Thats through decades of mismanagement at every level of the club. It's a sad state of affairs. Morton isn't a lost cause by any means but it requires more than MCT to give the club the seismic shake up it needs to finally progress to a more realistic level. We're certainly better than an annual relegation battle in the championship but under the current model that will indeed be our ceiling. It doesn't need a sugar Daddy, there's massive prize money in the championship now but that's somehow been forgotten. We just need strong leadership which we've never had in the three decades I've followed the club which is a crying shame.
