Jason is from Barrow originally, and while he hasn't played for them since 2016, he'll presumably be pleased that they've won the National League this season. That puts Barrow back in league football for the first time since 1972.

Apparently he is at Lancaster City. You can see their ground - the superbly named Giant Axe - from the train from London to Glasgow, the West Coast Main Line.

Another one of those, same time tomorrow.


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.


Do you like Abba?

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.


You know I hate every pop star that I ever met.

That pitch was under about 20 feet of water!! (Maybe an exaggeration).

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.

Further (albeit slight) evidence that the game's gone at this level, Jeff. 

Presumably we'll get some pleading sob story soon about the missus and weans/dug/goldfish being left in rags if he didn't take the mercenary shilling playing in the fourth tier under a massive bellpiece manager. It was pathetic behaviour when Stevie Tosh etc. dropped down to play for that Lucozade-swilling jakey's village outfit 15 years ago and the same applies to any so-called 'professional footballer' who now chooses to play below their level for some dung outfit like QP, EK, ES, Kelty or fucking 'Darvel' instead.

It would be a terrible, wee shame if Covid prevents the 20/21 season from ever actually getting going at that level, keeps all those stupid outfits firmly in their box for another year and fucks over all their shameless mercenary players into the bargain.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..

 

So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are

Given that Sean Crighton is a mainstay of the third tier with nearly 150 career appearances at that level, we can safely file the above nonsense hot-take in the bin where it belongs.

Kilday was decent for us until he got injured. Was never the same player after that.

He needs to earn a living & AFAIK never did anything to merit the booing he got last season when he played for QoS.

Because of course no other football club in the country will be signing players this summer other than Willie Haughey's stupid wee mercenary outfit in the fourth tier.

This is true, but like all who choose to join 'Ray' he now merits booing.

That was about the best moment of last season, when Kilday hit the ball off Craig McGuffie for our 4th goal at Palmerston & everyone started singing the Lee Kilday song.  That and Cadden's demolition job for the first 3 goals.

I'm sure you would turn down the best financial offer in favour of a lower paid job.

People turn down dung, dead-end jobs in the real jobs market all the time M8, whether they offer more money or not. And nothing could be more dung and dead-end than dropping two tiers to play for the biggest cunt in Scottish football, whose innovative 'sign anyone who once took a pish at Cappielow' transfer strategy saw him relegated and sacked from his previous job within 14 months. So I wouldn't bank on that contract at all.

And that's before we even deal with the fallacy that professional footballers hold down a comparable job to anyone in the real world. It's not as if Messi and Ronaldo are badgering their agents to get a pay rise every thing five minutes or else they'll sign for some tinpot Qatari or Chinese mob. Many professional footballers actually want to achieve things playing at the highest possible level because it's a sport and not a twelve hour shift down a uranium mine. That so many Scottish footballers have adopted a loser, mercenary mindset instead goes a long way to explaining why the national game is in such a mess.

I think it must be very easy for gubbins footballers to take more pay for easier work and presumably less hours training.

Rather than having any aspirations of a career at a higher level, for him the number one is Lee Kilday.

Or you could strive to do what Sir Richard has done by showing sufficient drive to play at the highest possible level and improve yourself - which then comes with the financial rewards of becoming an established player and future Scotland international.

I really don't understand why people are even interested in watching football at this level if they believe that players are right to prioritise collecting the biggest P60s over their career at the expense of trophies and success. If that mindset is allowed to prevail in the Morton squad then we'll never achieve anything at this level.

While it's of course a noble aspiration to want play at the highest level possible and win trophies and whatnot, the reality for the vast majority of players at our level is that the best they can reasonably expect is to earn a half decent living until their early to mid 30s. Some at our level do of course make it to the 'big time', but the reality is that the majority don't. That being the case, if an offer comes along that pays the bills, especially in the current uncertain  climate, then I would't blame anyone for taking it rather than holding off in the hope that something better might come along over the summer. This is literally the arse end of the professional football pyramid, so it''s by no means certain that he would have got a better offer if he'd knocked it back. The fact he's going to work for The Snake, at least until he gets the inevitable sacking, does leave a very bitter taste though.

Sir Richard is a much better player though hence his career trajectory since leaving The Famous.

Sir Richard started off his career as a total carthorse and has only become a much better player by displaying the sufficient ambition, determination and application to improve his game to meet new challenges. While we can't control the attitudes of his mercenary counterparts, displaying that sort of sporting ambition should be the Category 1A essential criteria of our club's transfer strategy. If your answer to the generic 'where do you see yourself in five years' time' hiring question even hints at 'grubbing around the lower leagues for the biggest pay cheque 'cos ma wife and weans' then you shouldn't darken the door of this institution. We will achieve nothing with that type of player because we will never have the resources to avoid losing them to the competition.

Hope we can somehow get Lamie back towards the end of his career if he’s still decent at that point. One of a very few favourite players of mine that I’ve seen in a Morton jersey.

Likely facts are, Kilday will be on more money at Queens Park than he was at Morton. That's the sad reality. Same with all these guys going to teams like EK and Kelty. They're tossing money around like it's going out of fashion and in this climate it's obvious why so many are taking the bait. 

Career ambition has been outweighed by the prospect of more money for arguable less hours.
