Thread About Ex Player

A front 2 of Denny and McManus would be tremendous.

 

I've not yet seen all of today's game but I noticed that Stef did really well to hold the ball up and free Denny for our equalizer, and got in the middle to follow up (not that he had to, Tavernier did that for us, lol.)

 

I can't believe I'm saying this but I think Stef is well worth his place at the moment up front.


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

That Barry McKay - played for Sevco yesterday and he was absolutely crap.


McGhee needs some support, there's no-one backing him up.
Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here's Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control...

That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton's supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.

I agree he deserves his place but it doesn't necessarily need to be up front. He's been pretty good out wide this season too, he's certainly not a striker or even a number 10 type player but Duffy has sparingly used him well up top for the reasons you've mentioned in certain games. 

 

If we got Dece again I'd definitely have him straight in the team if fit and have Stef on one of the wings. 


 

Peter Weatherson is the greatest player since Ritchie, and should be assigned 'chairman for life'

Fair play, would go for that. Stef broke down the right for our equalizer on Saturday, put him there and tell all the left-backs in the division their tea's oot.

For a player who is "not a striker" he certainly took his goal well on Saturday.

First time he's done that this season though. I don't think scoring a good goal every few months qualifies you as a striker.

I'm a fan of Stef, great work rate and attitude, but by no means is he a striker, look at the amount of times he's been in a similar position to Saturday and failed to score.

If McManus came back on loan surely that would mean Scullion would not get a contract extension and/or Samuel would head back down south. Personally I hope Samuel gets more game time as I still believe there is a lot more to come from him as a player.

 

From reading Denny's comments in the papers it seems highly unlikely he wants to be around next season.

 What has he said?

He is in the Daily Record (apologies but I cannot cut and paste the link) talking about the game and how he is "readying himself for a return to St Andrews" and the other interesting comment "I deserve to be playing at a higher level". He is also quoted in another article I now cannot find on my phone!

 

Fair play to the lad as he believes in himself. For now though I think he is a long way from the finished article. Not only does he have to improve on his physicality (his words) but his finishing is distinctly average. I have not seen enough to be convinced he will make it at Birmingham but would not be surprised if he gets an opportunity in the lower leagues in England an/or the Premiership.

To be honest I would rather every player in the squad had the attitude that they wanted to play at a higher level and pushed themselves to do that.

He is a Birmingham player and he should be focused on impressing then enough to be kept around. They are a much, much bigger club than Morton so I'm not sure why he'd want to stay here at all.

 

As for Scullion unfortunately I don't see a place for him if we sign another striker as I suspect we will. He looks handy but he just doesn't fit our style of play and I can't ever see him holding a place down. Might be for the best if he moves on.

Yeah, fair play to Johnstone for showing ambition and belief, both very positive qualities, but he's not really shown (yet) that he's deserving of higher-level football. I think he'd be eaten alive in the Birmingham first team. Still, time is on his side.

The Daily Record were bigging him up - gave him MOTM and said Ricky Sbragia should be looking at him for the Scotland U21s because he 'could do a job'.

The wee man is desperate to make it here but it just doesn't look like he's ever going to get the chance.

 

If I was him, I'd be off.

Happened to be looking at the Largs Thistle squad for this season. Several ex-Morton there:

 


 

Alan Gilbride

Creag Little

Alan Frizzell

Kevin Struthers

Bryan Slavin (player-manager, apparently)

Nicky Jamieson (although I don't think he ever appeared for us)

I see Kevin Kelbie scored for Linlithgow last night.  I had totally forgotten he existed.

You're right. I thought he was going to make it, extremely skilful player.
