Making a new YouTube channel for Ton TV makes absolutely no sense, especially given we have a very respectable audience built up on the old channel. I just don't get it.

Even searching for the new Nesbitt interview - the first 3 results were from the old account. Don’t get it

Is subscribing to a YouTube channel proving to be difficult for some people?

No, and that’s not the point. We’ve abandoned an already established channel (which we started after abandoning another already established channel) to go on a new one. I’ve no complaints about the content, Gerry’s doing a good job so far, but that was an odd move.

Can't wait for the 'MYSTERY YOUTUBE? – EXCITING NEWS!' new article:

"It’s been one of the most-talked about items in our recent Club history and it gives us great pleasure to announce that the brand new Greenock Morton FC YouTube channel... "

I still don't know why they didn't just change the name of the old channel. Having multiple channels is just confusing matters.

Maybe a new channel was the easiest way to go when setting up the new streaming service. Setting up the different access levels for ST holders, ppv customers, channel subscribers and casual visitors is possibly easier if starting with a clean slate.

I'm just guessing though.

Little of which will have anything to do with YouTube.

In the off-chance that the club uses YT for its subscription service (which I think is a bad idea for numerous reasons) then sticking with the established channel would have been far better since part of the eligibility metric is subscriptions and views, neither of which the new channel comes close to hitting.

They're almost certainly not doing this.

As long as we're just guessing, my guess is that they're having Gerry upload to TonTV and not sharing the main account's password or login.


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


Do you like Abba?

Am I the only one that cringes when watching these interviews?

The solution is not to watch them. Gherry McDhade’s insufferable, but I’ve got the gist of everything by reading what you lot on here have to say without listening to his shite patter.

Think the new website might have launched. Looking so great that it brings back old staff members 😂🙄

In fairness I just got around to watching the Nesbitt interview and it's quite good. Could do with being a few minutes shorter maybe, and other than the inexplicable dinner plate to Gerry's left, having the interviews in the dressing room (which looks very smart for a club of our level) is far better than the previous setup. Sound quality still sub-optimal but getting better.

The wee scrolling McTear's logo is cringe, but whatever, it's another tenner for the Gavin Gunning fund.

From little acorns will the mighty oak of Morton's media presence grow.


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

Can I shock you? I don’t mind Gerry, and think he’s doing a pretty good job so far. I’m not particularly arsed about his allegiances.

I don't really know much about him either. Wasn't it the case that he worked with Celtic, as opposed to actively supported/supports them?

Personally, i think it's a massive upgrade!

Can't have our cake and eat it

I’ve said a few times he boils my piss, and boil my piss he does. Unfortunately, if you want to appoint someone to a role such as his, with the necessary experience, narrowing it down to just Morton fans is severely limiting your pool of options.

He’s probably the most suited person for the job (given how poorly they treated Jonathan and he wouldn’t go back for a king’s ransom) but that doesn’t stop me disliking him. If a David Tanner or Alex Rae is talking, I immediately switch off, and the same applies to Gherry.

I’m not calling for the guy to be emptied the way I was Callum, but I simply won’t be listening.

The difference between Gherry and Callum is that in one case the club were looking for an experienced broadcaster to work on their media channels, whilst in the other, they were providing an opportunity to a young, ambitious broadcaster to get his name out there. You only have to look at the names on contributing to Dean’s new podcast to realise that there are enough young Morton fans, such as yourself, Ewan and Cammy who could’ve benefited from that opportunity. Of course, Callum’s behaviour in trying to snake a job didn’t help either, but in providing that opportunity to a Morton fan, rather than a Celtic fan, the club would’ve, in my eyes at least, been doing an excellent deed in helping their own, instead of allowing themselves to be used for the benefit of someone who wanted their name for his own gain.

Same could be said for many clubs. I'm pretty sure Clive Tyldesley isn't a staunch Rangers fan, but a good fit for the job. 

I prefer to take our content on its own merits and for years we've been crying out for someone with the ability to actually produce/conduct/edit basic interviews. Seems we have it now. 

As an aside, i see Callum Football CFB was posting on twitter yesterday saying he was in  a position to confirm that we WOULD NOT be signing A. Stokes. Award winning Intel!

But that’s my point- I’m taking Gherry on his own merits as a broadcaster, rather than a Celtic fan. He does my tits in in a similar way to how David Tanner does, so I don’t listen to him.

If the club, and the support in general are happy with it then good on them. I don’t watch I’m a Celebrity because I think Ant and Dec are both nauseating, so similar applies to The Morton Weekly Update. I’m only one of 1500 or so folk they have to cater for though, so if I don’t like it and the majority do, then it’s all good for Morton. I’ll just find out what’s said later on from you lot on here.
