Heard we're signing Jai Quitongo - any good?

Very. Knows his way around the treatment table. A top addition to any physio's client portfolio.

If what people are reporting are true, Taiwo seems to be a solid player at this level. However isn't he a box to box midfielder? Would suggest to me Murdoch is on his way out.

From our current crop:

Gaston, he has dips but has been the most consistent keeper we have had in years.

Lamie and Murdoch are vital to keep a good core.

Quitongo and Oliver are great players but not irreplaceable. This season would really be Jai's last chance or he will be joining the Leighton McIntosh's of the world.

Also get rid of Thompson and McHugh (cue them being a 40 goal a season partnership en route to the title).

Who were the people 'with a high track record of getting these things right' who  touted Lee McCulloch for the job?

It was always going to be another  ex Brechin man to bail you lot out. 

For an insignificant village team we seem to have served Morton well over the years. ;)

Solid appointment for you guys I think.

Actually likes to change his formation and make substitutions if it isn't working, which is refreshing.

He'll be fine if you're playing Dunfermline. A good percentage of his not-very-many goals have come against the Super Pars.

Also seems to be injured a lot. He's only 20 though and clearly has a lot of talent

Don’t be surprised if Charlie Telfer signs before the season starts. Coming home from his spell in Dutch football.

They should just be put in the Highland League forum now to save admin time.

It certainly will be compared to Duffy; even his greatest fanboys would probably admit that this was a particular weakness. The only game that I recall him changing this season was the derby against Saint Mirren by putting Tiffoney on; our changes were typically uninspiring like for like swaps, that could be made only when the ball was knocked out within a five yard space of the touchline that wasn't either 'attacking' or defensive'. McKinnon has never been afraid to make bold changes during a game - if his Morton side can gain even just five or six points from those changes over the season, that's a crucial edge in the play-off/promotion stakes. 

The manner in which he responded to our Forbes set piece threat last season after losing in the League Cup at Cappielow - Dundee United then quite comfortably  dominated O'Ware and our other set-piece threats in our remaining five meetings that season - also points to a manager with a pro-active approach.

No idea if you've pulled this out of the air or have some info but I'd be ok with that. Always thought he looked a decent player and is pals with Andy Murdoch so would maybe (hopefully) have some impact on getting him signed up again.

Not pulled out the air, I’ve got two good mates who play in the championship, it’s a real possibility according to one of the lads who knows him well.

A pretty tame comeback   chief !   Although it has to be said even in the Highland league  we would still be able to nurture  Morton's   future  !!  ;) 

Glad we achieved one objective this season anyway by getting right under your skin .  Didn't have to try too hard either.  

Thanks for playing . See you in a couple of seasons again. 8)

You've got under nobody's skin champ. All you've done is embarrass yourselves and you'll continue to do so by plunging straight down to tbe Highland League where you belong. 

Gutted for you.

Doyle and Ross Forbes are the first 2 to be told that they're not getting new deals by Ray McKinnon. Not disappointed to see either go. Forbes had the season of his life in 16/17, but was poor last season, and Doyle was the weak link in the starting 11 last season.

Positive start by the new man.

I always thought the critism of Doyle was unfair. Duffy played without a right sided midfielder, so Doyle was doing the work of two players and whenever play broke down on that side it was always his fault. Maybe if Duffy didn’t insist on playing  two of the most left sided players I’ve ever seen at Morton, in Tidser and Forbes, on the right then Doyle would have been a better player.
