Guff. Two points dropped, they were more than there for the taking. Why did we bring Oliver back as well?

If we were aiming to finish in the promotion playoffs then it would be two points dropped - but we're not; so it isn't.


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

But we weren't parking the bus. We were still hoofing it down the channel and attacking. Granted, that's not what led to the goal. But either way we need to figure out game management with a quickness.

I didnt have the stream Trump so I'll go with what you say.

Looks to Me that two things could be improved upon to turn Us into play-off challengers:

1/ We need to find a way to keep Our fitness and performance levels consistent throughout the 90 minutes. We seem to race out of the blocks and keep up a high tempo for an hour or so and then tire and allow Our opponents to get back into the game.

2/ We need a big target man to take advantage of Our good deliveries into the box, and to give Us an outball. Doesn’t need to be a prolific goalscorer, just a big physical specimen who can put himself about and hold the ball up.

Probably not, and we were in the same camp a few weeks ago, but there’s so much utter dross in this division the playoffs are definitely reachable this season. I know it it isn’t the priority but the opportunity is certainly there.

Frustrating result today, but great result at Ibrox to make up for it.

Whatever happens this season, at least we’ll have ‘The 55’ to celebrate!

Not sure if I'm the only person noting this? Its pretty ridiculous the amount of times a Lewis Strapp throw or a second ball off it lands around the 6 yard line without a Morton Jersey anywhere near it....its really not alot t expect a player to be in that area...is it?

Re a previous post by myself and continued calls for Young Reece and Lewis to be signed up....bottom line...MCT take over in the summer with each having 1 year left on their contract...people seem t think 2022 is a long way away but in reality by this time next year if we've not done something they'll be agents and plenty of interested parties in for these 2. MCT must secure these 2 boys or 6 months into their tenure everyone will be on here saying why was this or that not done as they walk away for next to nothing...hopefully this will be done over the summer..time will tell.

Given Lyon was out of the picture barely a month ago I wouldn't be rushing into anything, no. Once we have the ownership question settled, a firm idea of how exactly the club is going to operate going forward, a permanent coaching team, oh and an end to the unsustainable, BCD nonsense all in place then we can consider trying to tie up players to contract extensions. That's not going to happen before the autumn.

So who should, and is in a position to both financially and operationally, sanction contract spends for the season after next with the knock on effect of increasing wage budget spend for both this season and next?

Since Rees got back in the starting line up we seem to be playing better football. Can’t fathom why Hopkin didn’t rate him or Colville.

I’m questioning why we’ve dominated two games and couldn’t win them. Orsi played in both games so I’m unsure if he’s the answer. He’s done okay but I was thinking of a taller player with more of a physical presence. We obviously can’t afford a Lyndon Dykes but someone of a similar presence could be a focal point for our creative players. As Nonirontons said, long throws as well as crosses are landing in dangerous areas and no-one seems to be there to capitalise. Players of the creative ability of Lyon, Strapp and Nesbit would surely benefit from having such a focal point, both as a target and as an improved end product.

That's a good point actually - there has to be liaison between the current owners and MCT to agree a forward strategy that doesn't involve pressing control alt delete and rebooting Morton.  That could possibly involve committing to future expenditure prior to the actual takeover date, and that is something that should be getting discussed now.

As previous stated MCT have put two members on the board and are currently undertaking the due diligence process while gaining an understanding of the Morton business processes.

Not sure what more can be expected of this group and while both players merit consideration the main objective is to secure the the long term survival of the club.

Orsi I think is still trying to work out what kinda player he actually is. He’s not a target man, not a poacher and not a deep lying forward either. To remain at this level he’s going to have to nail one of those roles down.

That’s fine, but my point is it would be useful if the current board and the MCT board members could make sure that there is some joined up thinking - which I think may well be happeninganyway - to allow as smooth a transition as possible. I have no reason to think that those involved, being supporters, will not want to achieve the best long term outcome for Morton.

He's a pressing forward.

Orsi strikes me as a fairly physical player who would maybe work best with someone like Oliver alongside him. Certainly puts himself about a bit, but he has more to his game than that.
