The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

....... or to haggle down the price a bit given that by then as things stand we'd have just one player under contract (plus maybe a manager with at least a year of his still to go,.......)

Wondering what's happening with the Easdales take over?  Seemed imminent at one point then nothing.

Crawford holding out for too much I wonder?  I thought he'd be playing golf in sunnier climes  by now..  

Are they not still connected to Rangers?  I'm sure I heard the other week that Dave King had offered X amount for their shares but it fell quite a bit short of the market value.

They might be holding off until the Summer to make sure we are still in the Championship...

They'll buy us for a quid when we're relegated

They are having to hold back or at least appear as holding back due to a number of complaints from employees.

Really enjoying watching virginton's 'Award-Winning, Fact-Based Analysis' getting found out over on the Morton forum.

Keep up the good work champ.

What about the wababee censor, who constantly talks shite, meany mouth moaning about JJ’s dolorous patter and calling it completely unacceptable?

I still have programmes with your name in them so that probably explains it.

'With another Shelbourne player, Paddy Turner, he then joined Greenock Morton in Scotland, flying over to Glasgow every weekend. The team won 12 matches in a row and Flood was living "a celebrity lifestyle" as a footballer, in contrast to his mundane life in Guinness.'

Flood came in at the very beginning of the Hal Stewart era during which Morton went to a league Cup final tie against Rangers at Hampden.

The Herald
 

Easdales ready to make their move?  Selling their shares to King for £1.3m would free them up for a takeover at Morton.

You would have to imagine they're ready to make their move and have ownership of the Club for the summer.

What evidence is there that Easdales actually want to fully take on the responsibility of owning GMFC? I'm sure that they've got plenty of other things to do with their time and money that don't come with the dire investment record of second tier Scottish football clubs. 

One of the most unfortunate legacies of the Rae era is that Morton fans can't seem to envisage an ownership model that doesn't involve as near as 100% control by one interested party.

A far more interesting tale than the modern footballer retires and becomes a shite pundit. Fair play to the fella, a life well lived there.

At the moment the GMST is the second largest shareholder - initial value £120k.

Because they have already shown an interest in taking over. Sandy already goes to just about every home game and has done for years, so he has an affection for the club.

There has been strong rumour about a takeover too.  Of all the scenarios over the future of the club this one to me is most likely to happen.

We'll see how things develop once they cut ties with the Rangers once and for all.

I asked for evidence that they wanted to own the entire football club. 'Going to home games' definitely isn't that. 'Strong rumours' - mostly on cesspool fan forums or Facebook pages - are not that either. 

The reason why you think this is 'the most likely' scenario to happen is because you can't wrap your head around businessmen wanting to own a stake in a football club (and avoid taking a massively dodgy investment in the process), rather than running it as their personal family fiefdom with no-one else getting a look in. That's a legacy of nearly twenty years of the Raes' ownership right there.
