He got shoehorned into our team in Feb 18 after injury and we've been awful at the back ever since. 
Absolutely not all his fault, but he's been ever present in a team that has consistently conceded shit goals. 
For context, yesterday was our first away clean sheet since December and i think our second all season. 

Same as last season too. He got injured then McKay was ever present, only to be dropped by Smith as our defence turned to shit.

McKay is one to keep

Fully agree with that. For me, we should be building a team around McKay as a central defender and Matthews as an anchorman. Last summer Smith got our recruitment all wrong, and McGlynn didn't do anything to improve it in January.

Funnily this will be revealed in the 200 Club on Tuesday night at the share holders AGM.

I'm told there will be directors there.

Good. We are naturally behind in preparations compared with those outside the playoffs but positive to see we have a handle on it.

I personally think the club is a shambles and to be honest who ever thought staying full time with the team we had was a good idea oh my god. The part time clubs looked better, fitter and hungrier really damming considering we were meant to be full time. Hopefully we keep a nucleus of say 5 full timers and make the rest up with part timers and with a bit of luck get in the playoffs again and either meet Arbroath or Alloa in the final because Falkirk I think will throw money at McKinnon

How would that work with training? 5 full time guys and the manager/coaching staff playing 5 a side?

Sorry I should have also said that it would include the Young players on full time apprenticeships which would make up 11 players

Yet another season floundering in the seaside leagues, getting horsed by plumbers and brickies from Peterhead to Stranraer. 

What a terrible, wee shame that is for you.

It was indeed different: we won the division at the first time of asking and waltzed back up; whereas your rabble have clearly found your natural level. 

Thanks for playing anyway champ.

It's obviously some form of long term devotion/perversion.

It’s consistent anyway. Still haven’t received an answer either of his memories from Morton’s Scottish cup win.  

Not been in the top flight since 1988. 

Not achieved anything of note since that cup final in 1922. 

The very definition of “meh” in Scottish football. 

We aren’t much better don’t get me wrong, but least most of us on here have vivid memories of our cup wins.

Back then the League cup was pretty prestigious, I think we may have qualified for Europe? I might be wrong. Can anyone confirm?

That you did, but the previous year Cowdenbeath and Livingston embarrassed you by putting 5 past you oh and those pesky lads from Hamilton managed to score 10, it’s probably still on PornHub under public humiliation were the St Mirren fans uploaded it.

With no football to look forward to over the next few weeks, keep us entertained with your stories about watching your team in the 4th tier of Scottish football. We've never had the pleasure. I bet you've got some great tales to tell.
