The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

Recommended Posts

A great weekend for the club indeed, clear even to me a neutral like me. Pleased for you lot, but then I haven't felt joyous about my own team at all lately.

I dropped this on the supporters' forum already, but figured it might be a share here as well; I write a wee blog about special and otherwise interesting football kits with a weekly article posted each Monday, and I've recently covered Morton's old 1996/1997 shirt after discovering it shared its pattern and make with numerous other clubs up and down the leagues (including St Johnstone, Peterborough, Mansfield, Woking, and half of the Irish league). Thought it'd be of interest to any history buffs in this thread;

As for the article on the pattern itself;

As I'm a neutral, do let me know if I got anything wrong about the club!

Wow what a weekend that was being a Ton man. ...

The Snake relegates Falkirk.

Johansson gone with his puppet.

Dundee relegated.

We end up 5th.

Hawke gone at last.

St Mirren all but into a relegation playoff.

Why do we care about Dundee being relegated? Couldn’t care less about them tbh...

For the joke to work you would have needed to say Dunoon or somewhere that's actually over the water from Greenock.

Nah, then I'd be crediting folk from Greenock with a modicum of intelligence, reading parts of this thread renders that as fanciful.

Liked Iredale. He's a decent lad who will do well down there

Carlisle fan here, general opinion on Iredale folks?
Will likely be first choice left-back for us now Danny Grainger has retired.
 
Powerfully quick once he gets in his stride which is a real asset. Still extremely raw and has to be talked through games a lot of the time and told where to be on the pitch but that will improve with experience.

Final ball needs improvement too but he's only had two years of professional football and he's young enough that he can improve drastically given the physical ability he has.

I equally wouldn't be surprised whether he went there and absolutely bossed it or if he went there and barely played a match because it could go either way.

He's a confidence player who in his day has a great engine on him, pace and put a good ball into the box. Not the finished product but there's potential there.

The main shareholder would need to retain 75% of the shares for group loss relief to work. On that basis a 15% shareholding has no influence whatsoever. If Dunning become the 15% rep Crawford might let him rumble on for five minutes about the squad only having 17 holding midfielders but he ain't going to listen. Much better to lend the company the money secured on the ground with options to call in the loan if conditions aren't met.

On a pro rata basis C is valuing the company at £2.67m but of course the bulk of the company's value lies in the controlling shares. You would still be wanting the debt to be written off though before piling in at that valuation.

No. 1- D. Lennon (He won the League Cup & is still lorded dwn Fegland Way)

No.2- Hopkin, for obvious reasons.

No.3- Goodwin, weve no chance of getting him.

No.4- Archibald, don’t think he would want it, but if he did...

The rest; absolutely NOT.

I think he would jump at the chance to take the Morton job. Has been out of football and working on the railways for the past 8 months, and I think any offer from a FT team would be very appealing to him.

Problem I see with Archibald is he's never proven he can start anything from scratch. With Thistle he inherited McNamara's team that already had an identity and a squad full of hungry young players, and barely changed anything with regards to playing style or the type of players he signed in the 5-6 years he was with us. Would be very wary of him as an appointment at Morton.

There speaks our resident Endemol CEO, HMRC tax specialist, Nobel Laureate and first man to reach the South Pole. Or as you’re otherwise to all, a drooling, Walter Mitty fantasist.

Get back in your box then.
