Heard Stevie Lawless  was training with you guys.

great addition if true...looked one of the better players in the playoff final.

Getting slightly concerned about the manager situation - we keep pushing back the deadline and clearly K Miller doesn't really want it or he would have said yes already. Long it goes on the more disruptive its going to be when one does come in. If Miller says no on Wednesday now, then what? Holt? If he doesn't want it then we are in real trouble (or just give it to Martindale anyway)!

The club have said they weren't interviewing until Martindale was back from holiday which was only last week. Then sift through the candidates to find the suitable one and begin talks. There was talk last week that the rubber stamp would be put on things today with a view to announcing by Thursday.

I understand what you are saying, and not for one second would I expect Morton to make it easy for us, but a realistic fee would be a start....We got Sibbald for 50k, he played over 200 games at first team level, I’m told Morton want 6 figures for Quitongo. 

We have already been offered 6 figures from Doncaster and rejected

In 6 weeks time he will be able to go to an English club for free, find that hard to believe.

We did reject such an offer from Doncaster, but it was 2 years ago.

You'd have to imagine that an English club would take a punt on Quitongo quite easily. Minimal risk on their part both in terms of paying no fee and probably relatively low wages.

If he wound up at us I'd be pleasantly surprised but I'm not taking much from him training with us tbh.

Ah very misleading statement from Macca then, thought he meant recently. 

Whats he played ? 30 odd first team games in 3 years ? 

A fair offer would be in the region of 15-30k in my opinion.

That’s what I’m saying though, in a month or so time he’ll be able to go to any English team he wants for free, so you’d assume Morton would want to get something for him just now before that option opens up to him.

Right, this is a joke!! Get Miller to foooook! D1cking us around big time. The board need to show some balls and tell him he's had long enough - clearly after a better offer elsewhere so why bother.

Bit of knicker-wetting going on here. Squad is looking good and pre-season training looks to be going well.

We will get our manager, the club need to try and make sure they are choosing the right one.

How sure are you that it's Miller that's holding this up?

Agreed, if Miller gets the job it seems he might be in an uphill struggle straight away with some fans. Whoever it is we need to get behind them

I'm not sure why you are actually looking for a manager to be honest. Martindale seems to be running the show and whoever comes in will be on a hiding to nothing if they dont have control over signings, tactics etc.
I guess in Millers case you get to justify paying him more than the rest simply because he technically has 2 roles at the club but otherwise what is the point?

Agreed Torfason - there is no point! Just give it to Martindale now...

The alternative is everyone at the club sitting with a finger up their arse until someone else is appointed. Makes more sense to keep trying to sign players, no?

Got a link to where you've seen the manager won't have control over anything btw? Sounds like an interesting read. 

 

Sack the board etc.

Miller situation s becoming a joke now. Something has clearly gone wrong as even the club were saying they were almost ready to announce simething.

Calm down folks ffs!

The board deserve our patience for all they have achieved in the past couple of years. Getting the squad moving and keeping continuity with the back room staff is far more important at this stage. It was always going to be tough to get a manager in with the restrictions of keeping all of that together.  We cannot afford a huge wage for Miller - he clearly is interested in the job but is probably having to make a decision on accepting lower money than he can get elsewhere - there will always be some horsetrading in that type of situation.

 

it will be fine. Keep the faith etc.

I totally agree that you should be signing players. I just think the current set up doesn't seem broke so why fix it? It wasn't a dig.

My point as well - just give it to Martindale. Better than upsetting the apple cart now...
