Billy King Leaves Club

Recommended Posts

What a fucking pointless waste of time, effort and budget that was.

 

Unfortunately, all it likely means is Hopkin will throw the doors open again to any other unwanted wingers currently out in the wild, to proceed to not use them anyway.

There really should be a ‘no sand dancers’ sign and a bouncer at the entrance of Cappielow to stop this endless revolving door policy of crap wingers. There’s simply no value at our end of the market in this position: stop signing them and focus on building a strong spine of the team instead


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

The King has left, but he will always reign in our hearts.


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

Why is Hopkin allowed to make these kinds of signings? Blues, Orsi, Van Shite, Ramsbottom etc. Other than him being manager obv. I sincerely hope Crawford is asking questions about 2 players signed for about 0.7 games each before being released in the first half of the season - in which we've failed miserably to 9th. Utter nonsense.


 

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

The Gaffer, Anton and Timmo know the market and the kind of players we need. Trust the Triumvirate.

Cove released him after he was seen giving a gesture to Celtic fans at the Old Firm game. Think it was the wanker geture. He was about to be out of contract anyway so not exactly a big deal.

 

Hardly seems all the fuss people are making about it, frankly. Who cares? He'll be one of thousands to have made such a gesture at this game, one of tens of thousands nationwide that weekend. He used to play for Rangers and no doubt Celtic fans gave him abuse from time to time. So Rangers manage a derby win for the first time in ages and he's not allowed to act as a fan?

 

I can understand why Cove want to distance themselves from it but the amount of sour-faced media coverage is amazing.

Exactly, imagine a football supporter giving the opposition abuse, it’s not exactly unheard of.

The complete list of David Hopkin’s signings:

 

Sam Ramsbottom

Danny Rogers

Brian McLean

Peter Grant

Henk Van Schaik (left after two appearances)

Jack Baird

Stephen Welsh

Adam Livingstone

Kyle Jacobs

Cameron Blues

Nicky Cadden

Aiden Nesbitt

Kalvin Orsi

Cameron Salkeld

Luca Colville

Billy King (left after seven appearances)

Robbie Muirhead

 

He can bleat about the budget, experience, expectations of the support or any other excuse he can come up with all he likes. Nothing will change the fact that his recruitment has been an abject shambles that has no mitigating factors.

 

No one expects a manager at this level to get every signing right, and everyone knows a club in our position is going to be taking gambles, but that is an absolutely fucking shocking list. He had a 13/14 level disaster of a summer and that’s entirely on him. The only players you can even debate not being total failures there are Baird, Cadden and Nesbitt - the other fourteen have all been various degrees of disaster. That’s just appalling and he can’t blame anyone else for it.

 

He brings up the budget as an excuse every single week. If the budget is so tight, it’s important for a manager to use it wisely, to build a balanced squad and to consider every signing carefully. What you can’t do is sign six of the same type of player like a 12 year old playing Football Manager then turn around and cry about your budget not being good enough when that leaves every other area of the park hopelessly short of depth or quality, or actually pay a fucking fee for players so far out of their depth they get mutual consented after two appearances.

Incidentally, cowardice from the club to sneak the announcement of his mutual consenting in at the bottom of a piece about a teenager getting his first full time contract. As if not announcing it by itself like a normal football club would means fans aren’t going to notice that this has been another waste of money by a manager who has spent most of his time at the club shovelling notes onto a bonfire while complaining that not having enough money makes relegation inevitable.

Rogers is a perfectly fine goalkeeper at this level - a bit better all round than everyone’s tearful departee Gaston - and there are a few signings that belong to a ‘needs more game time’ column such as Colville and Salkeld. To label fourteen signings as being ‘varying degrees of disaster’ is over the top then: though I’ve got absolutely no idea what Baird has done to somehow escape that large net, as he’s been just as mediocre as our other currently playing centre halves.

 

The only signing that has been an unqualified success on Hopkin’s part has been Cadden. Nesbitt returning to the club was an obvious decision so long as he was available and the manager is getting nowhere near the best out of him by shunting him out on the wing anyway.

It be interesting to find out how much money has been spent on wages, signing on fees etc.
