Been thinking about this for a few weeks. What are we? We've had increased media attention this season but the narrative has always been that of a small fairytale. "Look at how good a job Jim Duffy is doing at Morton, they're punching well above their weight." If it was Raith, QOTS or even Dunfermline in their first year back finishing fourth I can't imagine the same terminology being used, or subtle-patronising going on. Are we not pretty much where we should be?
I've always considered us a bigger club than both Raith & QOTS, and not that much off Dunfermline. Similarly, I've always seen us as equal to the likes of Inverness, St Johnstone, Ross County, Thistle & St Mirren - despite them enjoying top flight stability for a good period. Recently, wether it's the spell in League 1, I feel like we've sank to a level of Ayr United diddyness.
Like a lot of the support, I've never seen us play top flight football but it has always been drilled into me we should be. As has the notion there's thousands more Morton fans ready to come to games when we eventually do. I'm not convinced that's the case anymore.
A few seasons finishing in and around the playoff spots might rid us of this diddy mentality, I'm not sure. Perhaps I'm reading too much into lazy media coverage. I do feel like there's a certain acceptance of mediocrity at Morton now, when there shouldn't be. We can get promoted, and similar sized teams have shown we can be more than cannon fodder up there.
TL;DR, Are we a complete diddy team now?
