Hard to believe there hasn't been a thread on this match created before today!

Really that hard to believe?

We've been pish, motivation and enthusiasm is low, and people only found out yesterday that they can even get in to the game. Far more pressing issues than how people think the game will go (with the majority expecting a comfortable away win).

He's been kicking about there for months and they have only now been convinced to offer him a contract to delay his retirement.

More than likely he is as finished as he has looked for the past few years.

Not quite up there with our signings of Novo and O'Connor but could be equally as impactful.

About time the radio silence was broken.

'Gesture of goodwill' is laughable although I doubt they'd want to update without attempting to show they are making a gesture. There's no gesture there though. A gesture of paying the price you should have paid anyway is not a gesture. The only gesture of goodwill is from the fans that still bother to queue up to get a ticket on Saturday and haven't already made other plans. I do get that it would have been difficult to lower prices like some suggested without having to refund Dunfermline fans the difference but still.

They have frozen adult ticket prices for this weekend. That should have read 'we have frozen adult ticket prices for the foreseeable future until a point where the system is operational and tested and no shorter than 5 days notice from a home fixture'.

Again, lots of buck passing towards Interstadia who continue to be a car crash. Yet still no acceptance of some of the responsibility and full responsibility for the lack of updates. 'We had an update drafted to say it's all working then had to redraft this one to say it isn't.' Have ongoing updates never crossed your mind? Why not an update to say 'we've set a deadline for Tuesday'? Why not an update to say 'ok, it's Tuesday, they've failed - but it's nearly there.'? I get they don't want to look silly giving that sort of update if it then fails - but they look pretty ridiculous as it is so couldn't do any more harm. Instead, they look ignorant with the fact it's Friday lunchtime before anybody hears anything.

He is listed as a club official on the website, which has been updated with the appointment of the Disability Access Officer, but I'm still waiting on him replying to my tweet about the club's stance on colt teams from the 22nd June.

Not trying to make light of what is a positive appointment in the Disability Access Officer, but i did have a chuckle when the news update talked about 'accessible facilities' considering the ongoing turnstile fiasco.

I don't know why we don't just get some local schoolkids to fix the problem. It's a simple door entry system, it's not rocket science.

Nobody would give a damn if the entry system was fixed or not - they would accept a steward pressing the button.

A working website, activated fan cards and the ability to load matches onto them, that's the important bit - and in actual fact, should be even easier to sort.

What ever happened to this Lotto stand that Hawke was banging on about? He kept saying we required a stand that was 'sustainable' or along those lines.

The feasibility study? Remember, it was going to take a few months to digest the information. Just didn't realise that a few meant 48.

I'm hoping Duffy has a couple of players up his sleeve as I think he's now only another couple of bad results away from coming under serious pressure from the fans.

Agree that unless performances and results pick up, the tide will turn negative. For now, I think a few too many fans forget that this poor run has been going since March.

Fan pressure will have no effect on Dougie, he loves Duffy too much. But if it forces Duffy's hand to make some credible signings like last time then bring it on.

We never build on any sort of feel good.

Fair play to those that thought there was some sort of feel good after making the playoffs, but for many any feel good was gone before the season ended.

We blew a chance at 2nd, clung on to our playoff position as others just failed to capitalise on our stinking form (a few more games and we would have lost it), got smashed by St Mirren in one of the worst derby displays i have seen then stunk out the playoffs as well.

The poor transfer window and only 1 good result so far this season carries on where we left off.

A company search indicates the company is based on the Wirral so the "gone to Liverpool" element holds up.

We'll he's not going to say 'gone to Mexico' if he isn't Mexican is he? Still doesn't make the excuse any more credible, particularly when the job should have been done way before now.

#1073852 Morton Vs Livingston

Posted by Jamie_M on 26 August 2017 - 10:57 PM

Well to me, 5 points out of 9 and undefeated was a decent enough start.

7-9 would have been good, 0-3 would have been poor.

Pumped out of 2 cups in miserable fashion, failed to beat part time Dumbarton, handed struggling ICT their first point of the season (and only a turnaround in the 2nd half stopped it being all 3) now beat at home to Livi.

Other than the St Mirren game, shocking start to the season and dismal form since March.

Yeah that's right, Inverness classify concessions as students, pensioners and anyone aged 16-24.

I like that.

Our concession rate of £15 is pretty poor when an adult is potentially £18. I know the club pointed out the number of concessions at Cappielow was way above average but the price they moved it too is pretty high.
