The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

I didn't bring Duffy up - there were specific questions asked about whether McKinnon was an upgrade or questioning whether we should have got rid of Jim or not. Nothing wrong with answering them. I'll let him be when he let's his sacking be and people stop pining for his return.

Forgive me for actually engaging in the conversation on here and joining in the topics. Would you be more comfortable if i stopped slagging Duffy and resorted to digs at other posters instead because that's all you seem to have in your locker?

 

Aww pet, don't be so sensitive. I said what I said because there's no denying that all you did last season was make post after post after post about how bad a job the Duff was doing, and even now that he's been gone for a month you've carried in much as before. It does become extremely tedious.

This isn't a defence of Duffy btw. I think there was a narrow window for him to aim at where he would have kept his job - ie finish 2nd, 3rd or 4th and lose out in the playoffs after a decent performance. Lower than 4th should have been sackable -7th definitely was -and even if he'd won the playoffs if our new chairman has any balls he should've been ready to say "thanks Jim but if we stick with you we'll be coming straight back down again". But now that I've said it once I won't feel the need to say it again. Or again.

Failure even when the odds are stacked in his favour

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

Good for you; nobody really cares about your concern trolling when others do though. 

It's not as if he's going to join Jim McInally in the 'point and laugh at the rest of his failed career' category anyway.

How is your career going Doctor? You even had a job yet or are you still touring the world trying to sniff out a  Brian Wake used jock strap?

That post must've sounded better in your head than it looks on the page.

2/10.

You're the one who made the claim so I'm not sure why you're now having a hissy fit at having  to provide some examples of those 'with a high track record of getting things right' who touted McCulloch for the job - that should be a straightforward task. I think we can safely conclude then that you were actually talking pish again and had nothing to go on other than what a couple of utter clowns in the Scottish media wanted to happen for their big mate. 

Thanks for playing anyway champ.

While I'm very much in the 'wait and see what happens' frame of mind about this appointment rather than excitement, if McKinnon does end up being a success then it's going to be great dragging up the comments made about Duffy's sacking by every single fucking guest on Sportsound for the last month.

This has been grating me as well (probably much more than it should to be honest) but so called experts spouting absolute nonsense having not seen us or aware of some of the stupid decisions Duffy made has been utter non sense.

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).

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
