  1. To be fair, the last match against Dunfermline we lost Lindsay and Quitongo in the first half which is a big blow to any team and the normally reliable defence gifted two goals to two short pass backs (well a pass back and a header back to be precise!) In that sense it was a bit of a freak result. It is Morton though and there are not any givens in this league. Any team can beat any other team on the day.
  2. Lindsay has been here from the start of the league programme and played in every game up to and including the Ayr loss. Nesbit was signed in early August also. I take your point re Murdoch and Gunning though.
  3. Thing is, multi function printers for home use not only will do your printing for you, but allow photocopying, scanning and fax (if anyone still uses that!). These are remarkably useful functions which no home should be without. Nice to have but non essential extras to look for are a sheet feeder to save copying a multi page document one sheet at a time and a duplexer which allows you to print/copy on both sides of the paper. You will get such a device from about £60 but check for a review online of anything you are thinking about to see the ongoing costs. Trusted reviews is a good site for this. I have a large HP printer in my home office which costs around £300 for a complete set of cartridges but that gets me about 8-10,000 pages. I also have a canon printer for photo printing which has all the same functions is much slower and has tiny cartridges that get about 500 sheets. On the other hand it costs about £30 in compatible cartridges to refill.
  4. Nope! Still very impressed and the list of "skills" you can add to it grows all the time. It has stuff like national rail enquiries so you can ask when the next train from Greenock to Glasgow is etc. Amazon music is free for a month to let you try it and then its £8 a month to use on any device or £3 just for your Alexa. It has its own speaker and can work standalone but I have mine hooked to my computer which lets use the computer sound system which is better quality. I think you can also connect it to external bluetooth speakers. Your mum should be able to use it right out the box. Family and friends have all tried mine and so far there's nobody it has failed to understand. It occasionally mis hears (don't we all!) but the accuracy is generally excellent.
  5. Morton really rue their slow start - 3 points from our first five league games. Falkirk are not much better with 4? from their first 5. If you take the league table after those five games, Morton would top the league with Falkirk second. Over the last 10 games, both clubs have averaged 2.10 points per game - the best in the league by a margin but not good enough to catch Hibs who have averaged 1.90. It could, however, rest on how Morton do in their two games against them. I wonder how distracted Hibs players are by their cup semi?
  6. If you convert your predicted points gain for each team into wins and draws: Dunfermline with 8 games remaining need 11 points - 3 wins 2 draws 3 defeats is plausible but look at their fixtures and ask where the three wins are coming from? Raith need 8 points - maybe home wins v Queens and Ayr and a point from Morton and a point from?? ...hmm! and so on.
  7. Oops, wrong night. Apologies St Mirren radio
  8. What is the point of Radio St Mirren based at the 2021 stadium broadcasting pop music when there is a match on?
  9. Is there any radio or online commentary of this match available anywhere?
  10. McDonagh played RB Because our regular right back was injured and did indeed have problems with Hippolyte. Duffy saw what was happening and hooked McDonagh because he was getting a hard time and had been booked. He was in danger of being sent off! He put midfielder Andy Murdoch at RB and brought Luke Donnelly which changed the game. Hippolyte was snuffed out and for the last half an hour Morton were by far the likelier team to go on and win the game. There should be no such problems this time as Doyle (our regular RB) is fit again but we will have decisions upfront with Gary Oliver being fit again also.
  11. I got Sky Q etc at the end of January which actually saved me a little money compared the old Sky set up - to do with multi room I think. I also bought a new TV from Amazon which arrived with a cracked screen and had to go back. It then took a couple of weeks to get my money back. By that time the TV I wanted had had a £200 reduction at Currys plus they were giving away a free 4K Blueray player with it so no brainer. I have to say the upscaling works well from HD and definitely improves picture quality over my old HD set but the football on Skysports is generally in 4k and its fantastic. Also the free 4k blueray player had three free 4k dvds with it and they look amazing. Downside is that watching that is in standard def is less good than I remember the old HD set handling it.
  12. Until this last year, Morton had a pretty patchy home record and that was mostly down to the team being poor at breaking down teams that came and sat in and very often suckered us on the break. What you say about Luca strikes a chord although I can't remember specific incidents of this involving him as such. I dare say there were some though. What has sorted that for us is having a much more mobile central midfield who get up and down the park quickly and offer much better cover to our back line. Maybe your problem is not Luca?
  13. Thanks for that. I am looking at a Samsung 8000 series flat screen - I have read about the drawbacks of curved screens. Just making my mind up about screen size. The room we use as a TV room is not huge - approx 14ft x 11ft and the TV sits in a corner. I am thinking 55in is big enough, maybe even 49in. The current TV is 40in but modern bigger screens are not hugely bigger physically due to the 2in all round bezel on older sets.

  15. I have a first generation full HD TV at the moment but am toying with getting a new 4K /UHD set. I am getting Sky Q but am aware there's not much 4K content around. For those who have a 4K set, does upscaling work? Is the picture quality discernibly better when watching HD programmes? What happens on standard definition programmes?
