Jesus christ, that would be some downgrade.

We replaced Ali McCann with Cammy MacPherson last Summer so it's sort of just what we do now.

Hamilton away first game not over exciting.

Cove at home second day a bit more like it and final game of the season on Friday 5th May, hopefully party time.

If anyone is getting the Scottish Cup jersey, order a size lower than you would normally.

Got a large & it'd fit Mr Blobby. Thankfully Smiths replaced it.

Do you think Ali Crawford will be involved with you next season? I know some Saints fans don't rate him.

Dougie has said on podcasts that he is his best pal in football so always wondered if he would try and bring him in on a deal or loan.

You've done good business getting Schwake on loan 

He's probably the main reason the Franchise Formerly Known as City are a League 1 club and weren't scrapping it out with Cowden and Albion Rovers to avoid the drop 

As I don't agree with the name change, f*ck it, I may have to nip over to Cappielow some time to cheer on the sexy Yank b*****d

Quitongo back at Cappielow. Probably played his best football of his career at Morton. Off the field he can be a bit of a throbber and has been prone to injuries, so a bit of a gamble

He does give us better attacking options than say Oliver so in that respect our attack line has improved.

Underwhelmed is putting it lightly. 

Hopefully we've got much more quality to come and he's only here as cover, because he's an absolutely colossal downgrade on Ugwu and Reilly.

“A bit of a throbber” is one way of putting it. 

Just don’t get it at all. Physical striker which Imrie’s obviously after, but there’s enough evidence to show he just is not up to it at this level. 

Hopefully a masterstroke and we’re left eating our words, but not pleased.

Not thrilled by that signing, but a few points to consider:

1) With his career having died on its arse, it's reasonable to think that Quitongo's wage demands could be considerably lower than an 'established full-time 'forward'' like Oliver.

2) I'd rather have Quitongo as an impact sub to chuck on from the bench than Oliver or (Wake help us) Easdale. 

3) Any Morton fan who supported giving Blues a new deal has no right to complain about the quality of the rest of the squad.

TL;Dr - If it is a case of being able to add Quitongo and have some budget left over to help add a forward of genuine quality (for this level) then it would be a shrewd move. But there's a large amount of uncertainty within that argument.

I would imagine Dougie would be looking to utilise him wide in a front 3. Not what any of us were expecting but need to trust Dougie and hopefully it pays off. A fit, on fire Quitongo is more than capable of being a threat at this level but I have my doubts over his fitness.

Least we are a step closer to having a starting 11 for Falkirk on the 9th of July.

               Schwake.

Pignatiello O'Connor Baird Strapp.

             Blues Jacobs Lyon.

  Quitongo Muirhead Garrity.

Bench-King, Hynes, McGratton, Easdale, McGregor.

 

I'd like to think we will have 2/3 better options signed before then.

More change of Quitongo ending up literally on fire during a game than there is of him being fit and playing well for any significant length of time.
