The Morton weekly podcast

Recommended Posts

How many different podcasts are there now? I looked on one and it had a review of the St Mirren v Aberdeen game. Is Tontalk, or whatever it was called now defunct?

I run a podcast of the SPFL across all levels hence the other content I have but hopefully this stand alone Morton content from me and the club can reach fans directly. Ton Talk is very much still on the go and John Sutton joins Ewan on that this week 👍 Edited by 74GMFC

What was the point in asking Wake about Michael Tidser considering they never actually played together at Morton?

 

Wake's last game was the cup defeat against our host's filthy favourites, whilst Tidser made his debut four days later in a 2-1 win at Stark's Park. The crossover wouldn't have been much more than a week.

Hoppy mentioned we have Salkeld until he is 23, so has he also signed an extension given he had a 1 year deal and turned 21 in December there

I presumed he meant should we offer a contract, someone would need to pay compo for him until he is 23, which is the same for a few players!


All in with a Doyle Brunson

What is it like being a ginger?

Never asked my question.

 

I wasted an hour listening to all that Celtic talk. Never again.


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

“In terms of being ginger, what’s it like?”

Thought the interview was pretty good and it's the sort of communication of what is going on at the club that a lot of fans have been crying out for for years. If there's going to be a work in progress as they suggest then there needs to be clarity with the fans throughout that rather than giving us soundbites when season tickets need to be sold, then going radio silent the rest of the season. I'm looking forward to the future ones and good job to the interviewer for not only softballing easy questions. To be fair to mckinnon and hopkin they don't seem afraid to answer difficult questions.

 

As for the Brian wake podcast, I'm sure it's very interesting but as someone who listens to a lot of podcasts I just can't tolerate listening to ones with poorer audio quality, which is just a personal preference so had to give up on it.

 

Keep up the good work though and I'm sure they'll only get better.

33 minutes in and MacKinnon is denying that Farrell is leaving the club, rubbishing that it was ever the case.

 

Here we have direct quotes from MacKinnon back in November:

 

“Mark Farrell had advised the club several weeks ago that he had a significant offer for further employment and the club had reluctantly accepted Mark’s resignation. Mark was a respected employee and we will be sad to see him go.

 

“Mark has given us a big notice period and he will leave in February."

 

So what else are you telling us lies about, David?

I still dunno what to think about him. He comes across well at times but you get the feeling he just says what he thinks people want to hear at times and isn't always being honest.

The Morton way.

A girl I work with is friends with Marks wife and she has also said that he is no longer leaving the club.

 

So the circumstances have most likely changed between the quotes and the podcast.

Which doesn't mean the circumstances in November never existed.

 

McKinnon is a frequent liar, it's as simple as that. Doubtless he tells the truth sometimes but I'm past listening to him now to figure out which is which.


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

Aye, but MacKinnon makes out he was never leaving.

Using the term 'recruitment specialist' to describe Dave Timmins is taking the piss by any stretch of the imagination.

How would you describe Timmins? Because, after listening to him, I still don't know what his role actually is.

The bit about utilising his contacts in England to bring players to Morton was tragic; eh I've got players names and contacts and stuff on my laptop, a few memory sticks and even an old fashioned book. I eh just need a system to bring it all together but I've not got one.

I know nothing about the guy but to me he comes across as a verbal sand dancer.

That's no way to talk about the genius scout who brought us Sam Ramsbottom, student of the game.

 

Perhaps he was quietly sidelined after that particular signing, meaning we ended up with unimaginative signings like Billy King instead. If this is the case, I'm thankful for small mercies. I'd rather have mediocre known quantities on short-term deals than a guy who made 8 (eight) starts and threw a goal away in almost every one.

 

He seems like a pleasant guy so I feel a bit bad writing this, but he's hopelessly out of his depth and not smart enough to swim his way out. He should be at a lower-level club where his motivational skills and contacts would actually make a difference. Here, at the professional, adult level of football, he's doing far more harm than good.

 

(As a side note, as a country we talk down Scottish football quite a lot, but it should perhaps be remembered that it's not that easy for someone to come in from elsewhere and immediately make a success of themselves. That Timmins thought a guy who didn't exactly stand out at the sixth tier of the English game was good enough to keep goal in our second tier should be instructive.)


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