#1071488 Motherwell V Morton - Betfred Cup - Match Thread

Posted by Jamie_M on 23 July 2017 - 06:58 PM

A new first team goalkeeper

Another centre back (or right back cover allowing Doyle to cover centre back as an alternative, not as good, option.)

An energetic central midfielder to replace Lindsay.

3 obvious areas we should have addressed. 3 areas we haven't addressed. 3 areas that have already caused us a world of pain in our games so far.

I think if anything it shows how we are only one or two injuries from a crisis. More bodies needed!

Injury crisis? Yes, we are just about there - just look at the bench.

Form crisis? We are well and truly already there and have been since March.

Maybe what we need to do to resurrect the Renfrewshire Cup is play it in some far flung location like the Manc Derby in USA this year.
ARRAN should do the trick!

Fixed that for you.

Top of the range electronic turnstiles and yet commercial practices still rooted in the 1970s. Typical Morton.

Why didn't they set up a 'select delivery' option on a website specifically set up to handle season/fan card sales? Yes it's probably a slight inconvenience to the club/website designers handling the details but not remotely as much as requiring people to phone to actually get their order sent to where they want in 2017. You'd be as well requiring for communication in Morse Code.

When there wasn't an online function, up to and including last year, then that sort of issue was excusable to a degree. We now have a site though, which seems designed to gladly take a customer's money without actually taking any hassle out of the process for the customer.

If the cards are in - it shouldn't be down to the customer to discover on twitter or on the official site that they have to call to sort out how they are getting the thing they have paid for. As said above, that should either have been sorted at time of purchase by selecting a delivery/collection method or the club should be emailing or calling everyone that has purchased, to inform them that the cards are here and to select their method.

And I bet there will be no chance of collecting them immediately before the game on Tuesday unless we rock up before 5 to the office.

JPMIL is pretty much spot-on. Gunning was good for us on the park, but squad harmony is really important for Duffy, and is one of the main reasons the last couple of seasons have been relatively successful.

Gunning was a regular for mystery 'tweaks' when the hard work started in training... on top of being a 'headcase' in general. Just not a good person to have around a training ground. These are the facts, and the reason that he is struggling to get a club at any decent level... too much of a gamble for most.

Unconfirmed comments about his attitude and mystery tweaks at Morton is the reason he is struggling to find a club at a decent level? Are you accusing Duffy of putting out negative reviews about him otherwise how would that be a factor?

Also completely contradictory to the fact that Duffy tried to resign him in January and was very complimentary about him.

Anyway, there's been quite a few posts citing an 'obsession' with Gunning. This week it has been the anti-Gunning brigade that keeps bringing his name up, not those that are supposedly obsessed by him.

I think we're all too Harsh on Gats - Argubably one of the best shot stoppers we've had. Just needs to work on commanding his area. Would like to see competition be brought in but I wouldnt instantly drop him - definitely won us points last season

Won us points, and lost us points.

2 periods of lost form/confidence in one season last year says he isn't reliable enough for us challenging at the top.

I hope we bring in strong competition, strong enough that will ultimately become the new number 1

Why else do you think that the Under 20s would need someone to 'help out' if Barr were to play for the first team? The development coach doesn't hold their hands on the way up to the main stand and hand out the Capri Suns at half-time. The playing and coaching roles don't overlap in terms of time or commitment.

I think he meant that if he was on the pitch for the development team, we need someone on the sidelines.

Sorry - it was too easy.

Some troll job from the official site right enough.

Yes, according to the official Twitter it's not happening this season.

Due to expected high take up because the team only play for half a season?

Having worked on them for 8 years I can't begin to explain how tedious it was having every second teuchter away fan say "you could be doing with some wd40 for that", and thinking they were the first person ever to crack that joke.

Should have got some WD40 the first time then shouldn't you/.
