The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

Recommended Posts

Before his knee injury I genuinely thought he was going to reach top end premiership, never the same after the injury l.

It’s obviously a gamble with his injury record and only playing 10 games last season, but even at that it’s less of a gamble than some of the centre backs we’ve had on trial. I’d rather take a shot on a player who was good enough for this level before his injuries than resort to someone who was never good enough and just got punted by Brechin after two successive relegations.

Aye agreed. I'm sure we have put him through a medical, the same one which highlighted Waddells injury so hopefully he is fit to play straight away. 

Curious to know if it was injuries or form which prevented him from playing too much last season. 

Happy to take the slight gamble as you say!

Good luck to Peter Grant. Genuinely thought he was going onto big things before his injury but just never came back the same player. Still young though and if a run of games gets him back to anywhere near his old form he will be a cracking signing for Morton.

Genuinely sorry to type this but he is a shadow. No longer dominant in the air and constantly shelling the ball out of play. Or at least thats how he left us.

I have rarely hoped to be wrong about a player signing for another club. Would absolutely love to see him getting back to his best but he is more than 3 years removed from it now. A real real shame.

Yous will at the very least appreciates the way he tries to play even if it doesnt work.

What happened with Kerr?

He's obviously got a bit of quality about him. Injuries haven't helped over the last couple of years. 

If he's fit I'm sure the quality will shine through again. It's a fresh start for the lad so I hope he gets back to the player we know he can be.

We picked something up in his medical apparently - not sure how serious it is.

Depends what you mean by quality? He's not and never was a ball playing type of centre back. Good in the air and tackle though and dominated most forwards that he played against which is what you want in a defender of course. Remember that Gasparotto boy that we both had? Peter Grant was 63,000,000 times better!

Great player before the innocuous looking injury. Never the same afterwards, real shame as the lad looked like he was destined for a great career. Wish him well though, really top bloke aswell.

MaybeGrant wasn't helped by playing on 4G pitches? 

Well, the injury didn't happen on a 4G pitch if that's what you're implying? Whether it was subsequently exacerbated by them is open to debate.

Thoughts on Frank Ross? IIRC he did ok for you a couple of years ago?

Started off brightly but was quite poor after a couple of months. That was maybe down to Duffy’s shitebag tactics right enough. Loves a 50/50 challenge which is quite unusual for a winger of his shape.

Then Duffy dropped him for no reason.

Have you got a strong team out tonight?

We're sort of half and half and its 2-0 after 25 minutes already.
