Championship 19/20

Recommended Posts

My lasting memory of Brian Graham was in the Albert just before he left, he sighed and told me 'your mates are hard work'. He was getting pelters for missing a sitter at Forthbank earlier that day.

 

When we think of players who have left Morton and had good careers this side of the Millennium, he is often overlooked but has to be regarded as one of the best ones. Granted, its not as high profile as Faoud Bachirou however he has played for some big clubs and has won 2 SPFL Championships (Ross County and Hibernian) a League Cup and a Challenge Cup, which is more than Chris Millar or Jim McAllister have done with their careers.

 

All that aside, if Partick want him then he'll he going there, not here.

Chris Millar won the old First Division and the Scottish Cup.

Brian Graham won two Championships and a League Cup. He also offered you a square go when he was about twelve.

He did that. But have you not read vikingTON’s memo? The League Cup isn’t a major trophy and doesn’t count. You should know that by now.

DavyDOB will be desperate to get the money together to sign him, now he knows there is somebody out there mental enough to fight you.

Brian Graham has been a useful goalscorer but never a regular starter, though. Chris Millar was an integral part of St Johnstone's Scottish Cup win and helping them finish 3rd in the Premier League (as well as a few 4th placed finishes). He made hundreds of starts in a top six Premier League side. I think his achievements surpasses those of a guy who bounced between leagues, was a failure at Cheltenham, and came off the bench in a League Cup final.

 

I'm not questioning Graham's success. He's been far more successful than Morton have. But he hasn't been as successful as Millar.

Agree with this entirely. Graham's done well for himself for sure, but Millar's career has definitely been the best. I really admire how Millar's achieved what he has too: dropped down from Celtic, took a bit of time to really get stuck in but he learned quickly, adapted to different roles, came back in to the team after signing the pre-contract with St Johnstone and his attitude was exemplary before going on to be a big part of a great period for them. If more players conducted themselves in the way Millar has, both Morton and Scottish football in general would have been much better off over the years.

I remember that miss. Guy up the back of the stand was giving Graham pelters. Graham looked up at him and it got worse. Could be wrong but I'm sure the guy told Graham he'd see him after the game. Came across as a bit of a dick.

Hamilton Academical midfielder Darian Mackinnon is on the verge of completing a loan move to Partick Thistle for the remainder of the season. (Herald On Sunday)

Id rather have Lyon, Colville, Jacobs, Cadden, Nesbitt & Mcallister in our midfield than some Hamilton reject who is over the hill by all accounts.

Pretty relieved he hasn't signed for us tbh. Not exactly a big improvement on what Thistle already have either. Bannigan is better on the ball and I didn't think they pulled out of any tackles in the games against us.

Looks a bit like Scott Brown but without the skill!

Potentially aye but very much hot and cold last year. He was a diving mess in our last game against that shower, was very amusing seeing him throw himself to the floor time after time and moaning about everything.

 

Hopefully the same experience at Thistle. Rudden, O'ware, Miller, MacKinnon... what a bunch!

With Brian Graham to be announced soon, an utterly detestable gang.

Hopefully this is right out the book of Falkirk’s January ‘restructure’.

Our game against QoS has been arranged for Saturday 8th February.


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 knew Queens had lost Robbie McRorie to Livingston, but hadn't heard that El Baktoui had left as well.  He caused us problems in the game at Palmerston earlier in the season.  Unless they replace these two players, should be a good time to be playing them.  Should offer them Sheepsarse as an emergency loan.
