Well we don't actually know that as fact. If the club knew about this ridiculous situation in January, when we were odds-on to finish in a play-off spot and chose to weaken that position then Morton are at significant fault. If the potential clash was only disclosed to the club after the January window closed then there'd be only one person at fault.

I don't know that for sure, no. It has been mentioned before that the club knew, that discussions had taken place about Gaston offering to fly back, that it was actually booked a couple of years ago. You'd have thought the dates would have been cross checked at the start of the season when they were announced and dealt with accordingly.

Someone should be held to account one way or other for this being allowed to happen.

The Gaston bashing will ramp up now that it's in the public domain but others are at fault. Duffy has to have agreed to it.

I Hope there is a proper investigation into the process that allowed this to happen.

We talk about raising crowds. We've had a Hawke interview where he stated we aren't ready for promotion. We have allowed our goalkeeper to go away when the playoffs are on, and they wonder why some fans don't believe they actually want promotion.

Then there's the fact that, knowing this issue was looming, Duffy let our back up keeper go. Ok, great opportunity, didn't want to stand in his way, but you act swiftly to get a credible replacement bedded in (who would have also provided competition and maybe even won a place in the team when Gaston has been handing out goals over the past few months). It's not like we used the money that was freed up.

Agree with the point that Duffy should know which of McGowan or Halliwell is going to play if needed and therefore they should play the last 2 games of the season.

Not sure you can say we lay down to them, we were just s***e.


While we may not have purposefully lay down to them, the scandalous lack of effort in such an important game is effectively the same as.

We've been s***e for weeks, but nobody else has given us such a pummelling.

What's the definition of lay down?

We lay on our backs and took one based on the fact we didn't compete the match. We chucked it.

Footballers barely get any actual holiday time off so he's probably tried to judge it and hope the play-off dates wouldn't fall on when he was due to get married. Like others have said though there's a fair chance the team could be involved in play-offs at either end of the league. Disappointing news.


Judge it, yes. But JUNE. You book for June.

Something Gaston knows plenty about.


Indeed. With his mistakes of late, you'd be forgive for thinking he was trying to avoid the playoffs so his problem went away.





(Completely not serious before anyone jumps).
