The broken turnstiles far more effective than Duffy today. At least they had a button to provide a plan b.

Morton attempt to s***fest a 0-0 out of the first half and inexplicably find themselves 2 nil up at half time. Pleasing.

The opinion of Falkirk fans is one that i'd gladly ignore.

And you know this because you have the figures at hand? I'd be surprised in the club did not know the ROI for this project.


:1eye:   If the club read this, they'd probably spend the rest of the day scratching their head trying to figure out what the Republic of Ireland has to do with it.

The Barr appointment was seen as smart by most at the time as it was sold as extra cover in extreme emergencies.

How many appearances does he have now? Too many for an 'extreme emergencies' player/coach. Were they pulling the wool over our eyes? Did Duffy always see him as a first team squad member?

His squad building/management this season should be a sackable offence. We can't even fill our bench yet we have players out on loan.

#1078007 Warren Hawke's Time As Chief Executive

Posted by Jamie_M on 02 November 2017 - 09:18 PM

Is anyone else less than impressed with how Warren Hawke's time as Chief Executive has been so far?

It is almost a year since he officially took over the role, but he was in-situ for longer than that unofficially and within that time the club seems to be grinding to a halt at best, and in some ways such as the Season Tickets/Turnstiles/admission fiasco it could be construed that the club is going backwards. We have failed to build upon the momentum of last season of getting to Cup semi-Final plus the play-offs, that should have been a big call for the local population to get behind the club but in the Morton style we shoot ourselves in the foot.

Is he getting an easy ride by the supporters as a result of being a 'club legend' - a term often overused to describe any jobber from a former era at any club - or would we be as tolerant of this if he were just another accountant or local businessman?

See this bit here. This is where you are demonstrating the very reason why there won't be many dissenters to the job Hawke is doing.


A prime example of Morton fans accepting the mediocre and celebrating it as a job well done or as some sort of achievement.


Which part of failing to win a single game in the entire final quarter of the season followed by surrendering meekly and completely failing to compete in the playoffs constitutes momentum?

Well, my money was on Thursday for the update to come out so they are a day earlier than I expected. A joke giving people 3 days notice of them making a change to ticketing arrangements. The ticketing comedy roadshow rolls on.

Moronic. Expect there to be a further drop in what the crowd would have been as people won't be arsed with the hassle or getting there early. There's a reason no other club thinks a tiered ticketing system is a good idea - it's not.

And they don't even have the sense to keep this important update front and centre on the official site - pushing it down to display a Celtic Youth match report.

We did know this was going to come sooner rather than later as the club clearly feel the queues are the fault of the fans for not buying in advance. Don't worry Morton - the queues WILL lessen - when people stop turning up altogether.

Buying at the ground too due to being an out of towner who can't get to Cappielow or Smiths during office hours and Morton's refusal to sell on a match day at Cappielow.

Posted by Jamie_M on 24 October 2017 - 08:28 PM

I've stopped going to Dumbarton games to avoid wasting an afternoon watching Morton succumb to their s***fest 9-1-0 tactics but is the meltdown not a bit premature here? The fact we've had an embarrassment of a transfer window and Rae has been pulling strategies out of a tombola every 6 months for the last ten years isn't new information.

We've been horrendous at times this season but last season's position or better is still achievable, especially if there's cash left for January.

As for Saturday, St. Mirren's wee bubble needs to burst and we should look better with a compact set up and Quitongo on the break.


Which part of our performances make you think we are heading in the right direction to match or better last season's position? We've been in regression since March.

#1077375 Tickets For Next Weeks Game

Posted by Jamie_M on 23 October 2017 - 03:36 PM

While Ton in Shawlands looks a bit silly for this post when the tickets are on sale, there's been 1 article, a month ago, talking about the tickets being available.

Most clubs would have had at least one 'tickets still available' post since then to continue to encourage fans to purchase them. Then again, most clubs would have had them on sale at the ground when their customer base was present at the 2 home games since tickets went on sale.

What they could be doing is preloading the cards with that days game, and issueing a fan card with instructions to register it and load additional games instead of a paper ticket. Those fans wouldn't need to queue for a ticket again. You really want the ticket queue clear for away fans, occasional visitors or folk without the means to get online.

They already feel they are bending over backwards with their gesture of goodwill of freezing prices by removing the surcharge. That's £2 saving they are giving all these people. They are unlikely to give another £2 saving, the cost of the fan card.

What they could do when (it's definitely a when, not an if) they reintroduce the surcharge is to offer cards in the way you suggest. £2 surcharge for a paper ticket with the £2 going to the youths, or £2 surcharge but that £2 is to buy your fan card then and there.
