Recommended Posts

YASSS! Important win.

Felt like we did enough to deserve the points tbh.

And tbf to Muirhead it was 2 good crosses for the goal.

The traits that we have in spades with this team are an ability to hold out under reasonable pressure, stay in the game and then exploit the weaknesses in the opposition team. We've played Queen of the South, Arbroath and Alloa, have taken 7 points and haven't conceded a single goal in the process. It's not just luck and it's a credit to all of the first team staff and players that we're nicking everyone else's lunch money with ruthless efficiency this season. If we can maintain even half of that effectiveness in the final two thirds of the season then it's mission accomplished 

Inverness next week will be a much bigger test but the pressure is off for that one now.

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

Dundee 😂

Wonder how much their squad is earning compared to ours? It's got to be at least three times more, surely?


The stadium was just resting in my account

That’ll do nocely. Decent enough performance, Orsi aside I thought Lyon was brilliant and Muirhead put a right shift in. Good opportunity to get 3 wins on the spin too. 

We’re a point off 2nd :lol:

Good solid team performance and 3 deserved points. Pleased that Orsi got his reward for his effort and Muirhead played the best I've seen him this season. Well done the keeper for another confident perfomance.

2points now with that last min equaliser from Dunf. 

The important thing now though is we are 9 clear of Queens in 10th

Solid and well deserved. 

McPake looked the standout player in the 1st half, but much quieter 2nd. Lyon and Strapp were good throughout and big McGinty was great. Orsi, you'd hope any striker would take the chances he did - but right place at the right time for 2 close range finishes. 

What a difference a week makes... from doom and gloom to sitting 3rd in the table with a home game to come on Boxing Day. 

I wouldn't imagine any changes to McElhone staying in the dugout, probably for the rest of the season.

While you have to take into account the opposition and especially defending we were up against today, we've looked a much better team in the last two games. There's still an emphasis on defensive shitfesting, long balls and physical battles in our approach, but we actually have a plan for how to win games with it which was lacking under Hopkin. Lyon, McGinty, Strapp and Muirhead were all really good today as well as the obvious contribution from Orsi.

An eight point gap to 9th now and you can't really ask for much better this early in the season.

OOOOOOOOOF. If I was a Queens player I'd be on the verge of tears.

What a cross from Muirhead, that was delicious stuff. Nice wee header into the far post too. Absolutely delighted for Orsi too.

Cmon the Morton

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

Great result. A bit of a gutter that both Alloa and Arbroath won, as defeats for them both would have been helpful.

Can't see any way that Queens will catch us now tbh.

Depends how you look at it, could view it as them taking points off our playoff rivals.

Glass half full and all that.  


All in with a Doyle Brunson

Nah.

Both on £500,000 grant. Divide ours by 22 divide theirs by their squad size surely they don't have a squad of 66.

Saying that add a 6 and it's the devil's number ha! ha!

All that really matters is were in front.

I have no idea what you're on about, but I'm talking about the wage bill of their playing staff. Nothing to do with the grant.

Felt that Queens were there for the beating - and we duly did. Not pretty but when you get points on the board I really don't care. Can't understate the save by McAdams just before our second - top class stuff.

Even more impressed that this fantastic group of players have somehow propelled us into 3rd place.

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.

Caley didnt exactly cover themselves in glory today.....beware of the 'bounce.'!

Reinstate Fjortoft please (no disrespect to our current defenders but we need this guy for the long haul.

What a difference having a competent keeper makes. This squad has some amount of spirit.

I'd like another one please.

Which illustrates our need for a second keeper.....No disrespect to Jim (McAllister) but I dont want to witness him having tae take the keepers jersey because Aidan got crocked.

p.s. I'm surprised teams arent targeting our keeper (dirty stuff) in the full knowledge we only have one (1) keeper!
