Episode 13 is now live! Dean, Cammy and Craig do everything possible to avoid talking about the game...what's your favourite Greenock train station?

My favourite Greenock Train Station is Port Glasgow.

I met Sir David Irons a couple of years back.  Great guy.

I hope that Sir David was addressed by his proper title by that little bollocks at all times in this interview.


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

Our exclusive interview with former Morton manager Davie Irons is now live! Dean McKinnon sits down for a feature length interview with current Stenny boss. He talks about his tenure with the ill-fated Gretna, his 'challenging' spell at Morton, his fractious relationship with Douglas Rae, being replaced by James Grady and Allan McManus, being the oldest player to ever play in a Scottish Cup fixture and his future with Stenhousemuir.

Interesting listen. Comes across well. No surprise about what was happening at the club under Mr. Rae. We all knew it. 


TIME FOR CHANGE!

Most of that is completely unsurprising confirmation of the rotten culture around Morton at the time, and it's pretty embarrassing to think how many people in football have heard stories like this and view Morton as a tinpot joke due to that hard earned reputation for mismanagement at a boardroom level. It'll take years of hard work to fix that.

Despite most of that being unsurprising, the McGuffie/Jenkins board meeting story is unbelievable.

That story about McGuffie and Jenkins is incredible, although given my dealings with the club around the same time is not at all a complete surprise.

Was Rae misremembering or was he just using it as an excuse? 

Interesting that Alistair Donald was Irons' ally on the board.


The stadium was just resting in my account

Interesting listen. It speaks volumes that Sir Davie never had a bad word to say about his successors. He was on a hiding to nothing with everything going on behind the scenes.

Apparently when he left the Morton board, he owed the club tens of thousands of pounds, as he was using the hospitality facilities as a private social club.

That wouldn't have done Davie Irons any favours when things were difficult between him and DDFR.

That wouldn't have done Davie Irons any favours when things were different between him and DDFR.

Didn't Alistair Donald organise the pre season trip to Austria and then bugger off without paying the bill?

Possibly.

It came out in the AGM the year he left that he ended up owing the club c.£30k, and used hospitality as a private social club for him and his cronies, of which Andy Goram was one.

I was listening to it, then fell asleep halfway through it, then woke up and had to listen to it again.  So that only counts as one, not two listens.
