A great feeling at Cappielow..

Recommended Posts

Until Morton win something. Might be a long time 8)

I suppose if Rae sacks that master of sports psychology "Mighty Mouth Moorinho" there might indeed be "A Great Feeling At Cappielow" once more? :)

I could be wrong, but has Archibald not lost something like two points since taking charge?

Correct! His first game in interim charge at Cappielow is the only game he hasnt won and even that was a game we blew due to Murrays stupidity on two counts (the penalty and the sending off)

In our last 11 games we have had 10 wins and one draw which is an incredible performance from the players

Archies record

P 9 W 8 D 1 L 0 F 24 A 4 PTS 25

It's been a great season and for all those running Morton down for falling away/failing, if you're not closer to us than we are to Thistle, please observe my middle finger. Our squad was built for a tilt at the title and it's credit to the chairman, the manager and the squad that we'll either do that or be agonisingly just short.

Morton do have to figure out how best to run the club and where we are heading to, and to try for the SPL title this season was to go for the quick fix. I think we need to build now and the recent establishment of a decent youth set up and community engagement is a great first step. We're very fortunate to have a Chairman who loves the club and has sunk a fair chunk of his own money to keep us afloat.

Scottish football as a whole has deep rooted issues to address, more and more clubs look like they may go to the wall, and it's turning into a self interested battle to be amongst the last ones standing. I hope my club is one of those to remain and this season gives me hope that we will be.

Ah, great to see this dear old thread back in such rude health.

Really looking forward to next season when we can resume the great feelings we tend to get on virtually every visit to Cappielow.

You do realise we always seem to f**k up runs of whoever, and we are also famous for ending runs positively or negatively.

We haven't won in our last 4 visits to Starks. Feel free to end this run.

You're all desperately trying to beat a dead horse here when in fact we've had our most successful season in years, finishing second to a very good thistle team.

No, you'll finish second in the worst first division ever. Nothing to beat your chest about.

Says who? Morton are on course for 70 points or more this season. Whether we go up or not it would be a remarkable season considering the 5 that have gone before it. Most fans in the division would have loved to have had the run we have this season. I definitely have anyway.

Still a far better season than we've had in ages and while obviously we'll be disappointed as it looks like thistle will just have the edge on us, it's not the disaster that some people on here are making it out to be.

Thistle are the only competition.

Mate, you know so. The drop in standards is evident for everyone.

So we hear every year. This has been a great season for Morton either way and an even better one for Thistle so far. Your definition of standards is subjective but the points on the board are a fact and that's what makes success, not your opinion about how good the opposition were.

I don't think the league is great either but Morton (and obviously Thistle) are having a tremendous crack at it.

I don't buy this drop in standards stuff. The teams at the bottom (Airdrie aside) are probably putting up more of a fight than QoS did last season, regardless of their part-time status. Falkirk/Raith/Hamilton are as average and run-of-the-mill as ever. Livingston have arguably improved this season. Thistle and Morton this season are two of the best sides this division has seen in a number of years, and that's why they are on course to pick up a far superior points tally to previous winners.

Still though, this thread :lol:

^ Sense. I suppose it depends on your perspective. From up here the league looks alright, ha.

Don't get me wrong gigi, you're one of the good guys on here. Only saying you had a decent squad last season too, and you finished 7th. It's definately not to do with your managers inginuity (sorry for spelling) that your team have been tipped for the title this year. The league is a lot weaker imo.

Our squad last season was mince compared to this season which is why we're much further up the table, nothing to do with the quality of the league. You could make a case that because 2 teams went up to the SPL and 3 teams came up from the 2nd division that would make a slight difference but other than that the quality of the league is the same.

All true, but it's not really the point, is it?

After such labouring, this really did look like the season it might happen for you.

It now looks like it won't and it must be a bit sickening.

Of course, the entire point of this thread was all about hilarious hubris at the start of what turned into a disappointing last season. That's what makes it an amusing place to visit when things don't go to plan.

Morton have done well this season, but it looks as if they won't do well enough. With a really excellent side joining the division next year (and I'm not meaning Dundee) you wonder if they'll get as good a chance again for a while.
