Until Mr Alexander Rae is unveiled as your manager come end of May.

Then we can have 2 Raes picking our team

Seems a sensible move by Morton but putting that clause in and then being too cheap to fulfil it does exclude them from joining the #BigTeamAlliance anytime soon.

If their contract was up at the end of the season they wouldnt be due very much. Months wages maybe. As has been said, probably a good move for them to say that they werent being allowed to play the team  they wanted due to boardroom influence and resign on a point of principle

This.

Duffy on Sportsound on Johansson leaving earlier:

“Finished above Falkirk, above Partick Thistle, two teams who have much bigger budgets than Morton believe me. Finished above Alloa, above Dunfermline eventually. I think it’s been a decent season for Morton. If it is down to the fans, I don’t know what they’re expecting.”

That’s why you’re no longer the manager here either, Jim. Anyone who thinks this has been a decent season hasn’t watched us and perhaps if he had a better grasp of what constitutes realistic expectations he might not have got himself sacked by overseeing a collapse when we should have been strolling into the playoffs.

We’re well rid of anyone with the attitude that plucky little Morton can’t possibly hope to compete with playoff contenders with huge budgets like, eh, Livingston and Ayr United.

The Board are responsible for the fact that JJ  inherited a striker less bunch of crocks and error riddled nearly men. Duffy is quite right to imply that the Board are clearly deluded if they think our rag bag squad were capable of anything thing better than a top five finish. 

The Board and its sustainability spreadsheet obsessed acolytes deserve to be binned as well. You know it makes sense but are too much of a sycophantic toad to say so.

When it comes down to the board / manager blame game, in our case it's not one or the other - it's both.

I sometimes disagree with a lot of of what Dunning posts - but, a "sycophantic toad"??      Behave yerself.

Yeah, I’m well known for being a sycophantic happy clapper who never criticises anything Morton do. 6D1C32E8-EA77-4626-88C9-F8576610D309.png.62854b26470aaa389f8d092b98216711.png

We obviously need major changes in the boardroom, and as they’ve clearly lost interest the sooner Golden Casket are gone the better. There is actually a space for a range of opinions between being a sycophant to the board and your personal vandetta against individuals on it.

Hopkin in and Tidser re-signed before the end of May, please, then take it from there, on and off the pitch.

I’d also take McCrorie back, but that might be the one downside of the way Johansson went; hope it hasn’t fucked Telfer off, either, because he finally looked he part when fully fit

Tumilty, Iredale, Strapp, Kilday, Tidser, Lyon, McHugh to form the core of a squad. Telfer (see above). Unsure about both Millar and McAllister, mainly due to potential cost (and age) vis-a-vis other options, but both will most likely stay.

Wee persistent calf strain for Kiltie at he beginning of pre-season, meaning he falls out of the picture at Kille and has to return to the Ton at least until January.

Absolutely no fuckin idea where the rest of the squad will come from.

I’d be absolutely astonished if Tidser is with us at the start of next season. Whether it be because he can get more elsewhere or because we can’t sustain his wages due to ongoing cost cutting, he will find more ambition (and money) somewhere else.

Feel free to relieve United of Yannick Loemba please :).   No fee necessary he is not needed nor wanted and will help bolster your squad.

Two managers chucking it within hours of kickoff, a top scorer with six league goals and Ryan Scully throwing in goals until January yet The Famous still effortlessly secure a top half finish. What a club. #toobigtofail

Reading between the lines in some of the comments it would appear "investors"  wanted JJ and Housty out. 

Crawford increasingly looking like a puppet chairman caught between other family shareholders and investors. That position is surely unsustainable?

The Easdales have huge influence it seems and I imagine want their own man in to take the club forward.  

Rumours of wanting Hoppy in and funding a Tidser deal circulating.  I personally don't have a problem with the Easdales taking over as the Rae's time at the club are coming to an end. 

The problem just now is the transfer from the Rae's to the Easdales. But the sooner the better  as I don't see any other white knight on the horizon.

This is excellent news. Getting rid of the management team seemed unlikely but not impossible, but I never had the slightest suspicion Hawke would be following them out of the door. Good riddance.
