The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

Recommended Posts

I’ll admit I’m also unsure if McAlister still has the legs to play wing back, however I thought having Nesbitt in front of him would reduce his need to fly up and down the wing for 90 minutes. I’m also taking from Hopkin’s intention to sign 4 CB’s, that’s it’s a back 3 with one as cover. Perhaps McAlister could fit in there with Strapp at LWB?

I'd be very surprised to see Hoppy play 4-3-3! possibly more likely to see something like this:

                         Ramsbottom

            New            New           New

Tumilty    Millar     Jacobs    Lyon    McAlister   

                       Salkend     Nesbitt

You've missed out Muirhead.  Fairly sure he'll be a default choice as one of the strikers.

Yeah could be right, as Hoppy was praising him up, whereas Salkend wasn’t sourced by him.

With Cadden, Nesbitt, Salkeld and Orsi in the squad, you’d think that either 3-5-2 isn’t going to be Hopkin’s preferred formation, or he sees at least two of them as number 10s to be used off Muirhead rather than as wingers. Having the flexibility to move between different systems can only be a good thing, of course.

Will be a 0-6-4 the way things are going...
Preferable to Buchanan and Waddell back there to be honest and less likely to ship goals.

We’ve signed Nicky Cadden.

How refreshing to see we have a few wingers in the squad now..

 McKinnon and Duffy never really had that area covered. Prob need to go back a good few years to when we last had 2/3 good options on either wing.

He talked about how Salkeld could play anywhere across the middle or up top  so  he could play just off Muirhead with Nesbitt and Cadden either side.

Can't remember the last time we had so many forward players!  Cadden is another good signing :thumsup2

Has Jacobs snaked us and gone elsewhere? Seen no mention of him officially signing apart from the PCA.

Surely the signing of the PCA is enough?

I'm not sure how he was at Ayr last year but based on his Livi performances that's a good signing. With him, Nesbit and Orsi plus Salkeld it's definitely more wide players than we've had in a long time. It has me thinking Hopkin might be looking to play a 442 or 4411 ?

Competent central defenders now please Davie.

Players can walk from them if they like. The fact he's not on our official site but every other new signing since his PCA announcement is on there would suggest it's not completed yet. 

Also, looks like Mark Farrell (fitness guy) is away. No longer on the site.

Awaits Derek Gaston crying that the guy never got a big send off.

Or it would suggest he hasn't been in to Cappielow to get his photo taken to be added to the squad page, which isn't overly surprising if all the formalities were done when he signed the PCA.

More than likely get done on the first day of pre-season training.

Still very rare for players to renege on a PCA, especially one signed just a week before he could have signed officially.
