The Greenock Morton Thread - It's Better Than Yours

Recommended Posts

This season could be anything...

I'm still naively hoping for another goalkeeper and an actual right-back... but I'm clearly just not on the same wavelength as Davie Zen Master Hopkin...

Training will be like Battle Royale for the forwards and midfielders...

Well, it's two defenders finally. We're still too short to be playing a back four as it is, but I also don't have a clue who out of this squad would be a right wing back and we surely don't have the budget left to sign any more defenders. Fjortoft and Ledger both need to be successful or we're in big trouble, we simply can't afford defensive signings going wrong.

McPake - certainly worth a shot, we didn't do too badly from the last winger that a fellow Championship club thought was shite. But the attitude could be an issue if things go badly (see McKay, B.) 

Fjortoft - 6 foot 4 centre half and isn't 100 like McLean, hopefully we'll get a proper hammer-thrower instead of a donkey.

The others:

Wallace is a very good footballer, but he is absolutely tiny.  I hope he does better for you than Reagan Tumilty and Dylan Dykes.

Tumilty did well for us.. Dykes, not so much!

We now have 16 midfielders/forwards fighting out for effectively 6 positions. There is going to be a lot of unhappy players on match day.

Meanwhile we have 3 defenders, 1 of which is 35 and past his best.

Absolute madness recruitment from Hopkin when just  a week or two ago he said how tight the budget was and asking fans for more money.

Quite why he gave so many of our deadwood new deals and continues to recruit wingers and attack minded players is anyone's guess.

We have 4 defensive midfielders, we have 5 wingers, has Hopkin lost it? How is he going to make this work?

 

 

 

Must have gone to the same coaching school as Goody.

I got a horrible feeling he's decided Chris Millar is a right back or something equally ridiculous. 

In a 4-4-2 with a solid midfield 4 in front of him that wouldn't be a bad idea as a one off but we can't go into the season with Jacobs or Millard as our first choice rb.

The Wallace Duffy loan has been cancelled...

Wallace Duffy now expected to pitch up at ICT. No idea how good he is but if it eliminates the possibility that Brad Mckay will rock up at RB for us then it is a fantastic signing.

He is on record as saying Millar will have limited game time now. He is likely looking at Jacobs and Ledger just now for RB in a 4, Salkeld if we are playing a back 3, and maybe still looking to replace Duffy.

He's shite by all accounts. Happy to take the word of the St Johnstone fans on the subject now.

I'd put money on us lining up Ledger-Fjortoft-McGinty-Strapp across the back if there are no further signings. Strapp with license to push on, the other three shuffling across.

Whether that's good enough remains to be seen.

An actual right-back would be very welcome, but more than that, we need a first-choice keeper.

He was unlucky in that he was rushed into the side due to injuries and us being rubbish at the time.

We have a first choice keeper, whether he's any good or not is anyone's guess though.

That post is typical of what was said by Saints fans at the time.

We have an only-choice keeper, who has never played regularly at anything like this level. If we don’t get another one, we’re very likely in a lot of trouble.

Gambling on McAdams to play every week would be absurd, given the money that’s been spent on contracts for guys in other positions who’ll barely get a kick.

McAdams has quite clearly been brought to the club as a first choice, if you think that we're adding anything other than a benchwarming ringer then you're deluded.

No idea what you’re basing that on, tbh.

If it does turn out to be the case, it’s Hopkin (or ‘Timmo’) who’s deluded, not me...
