#1066919 2017/18 Signings

Posted by Scott on 16 May 2017 - 12:03 PM

New soild GK


O'Ware (if he stays) Gunning


Murdoch Tidser/New





Would be a very decent spine of a team. Gunning's stats speak for itself. Having a defender who concedes less than a goal a game is someone worth having. Add in the fact that he was a leader at the back and had a proper winning mentality, as well as being a bit of a madman, he should be signed as a priority if possible. I loved the way he got all the players into a huddle in the middle of the park in the derby and got them fired up to get the equaliser.  

It all depends on whether he's prepared to up sticks and re-locate up here though. We'd need to pay fairly high wages to help him cover the costs of finding accommodation etc.

Cup competitions shouldn't count: Beith and Aberdeen aren't of a broadly comparable standard. The figures for Championship matches should be used and are instructive when we look at the centre-backs individually. Let's first look at goals conceded per appearance:


Sir Gavin: 0.9 gpa

Lee Kilday: 1.14

Thomas O'Ware: 1.16

Ricki Lamie: 1.25


Alternatively, we could look at the rate of goals conceded per minute on the park:


Sir Gavin: 94.2 minutes per goal conceded 

Thomas O'Ware: 77.4 mpg

Ricki Lamie: 76.9

Le Kilday: 69.4


By whichever measure you use, Sir Gavin's performances at Morton were absolutely streets ahead of any regular option in that position. These are facts. 



I hope Duffy sees this :lol:

Some highlights from Tuesday for anyone that hasn't seen them - https://m.youtube.co...tQFwxMjA1MjAxNw

Their second gets worse every time I see it.

Gaston absolutely should've saved the second. No pace on it whatsoever.

#1065862 The Big Ginormous Playoff Thread

Disagree he gave up on those through balls, he was simply far too slow to beat that big defender. I said if Jai was on last night, he would have had a field day in that first half.


He was frustrating last night but some fans take it to the extreme. Someone played a ball to him which was just behind him so there was little he could do to control it only for some fans to go absolutely mental at him which is unfair.


Hopefully Duffy changes it up on Friday.

I'd agree with that. I've been really disappointed with him but he seems to be a bit of a scapegoat for the majority of the team going completely off the boil. He's not the type of player that runs the channels and Duffy openly stated that when he signed. I think he holds the ball up quite well and can bring others into play. There was 2 moments last night where he was making a run and the ball was passed behind him causing him to get it stuck between his feet, both very hard to deal with but a lot of people seemed to jump on his back for it. I don't want him here next season but I think folk are being quite harsh on him.

Posted by Scott on 27 April 2017 - 07:05 AM

Going by Thomas O'Ware's instagram story it would appear that some if not all of the players have been given time off. About to board a flight to Tenerife with Andy Murdoch so I guess it'll be the reserves playing on Saturday.

#1064566 Morton Vs Ayr

Posted by Scott on 22 April 2017 - 04:58 PM

Hating all of this patronising pish coming from the players on twitter. Aye, we'd have all taken 4th at the start of the season and well done to them for getting there, but we had second in our hands and for whatever reason once we got there we have been terrible.

#1062952 Morton Vs Hibs Iv: This Time, It's Personal.

Posted by Scott on 09 April 2017 - 03:06 PM

A minor point but does anyone know why we lump the ball forward from kick-off every week? Baffles me as we just automatically give up possession straight away. Leicester just did it there and conceded after 30 seconds.

#1060864 Falkirk Away - 18Th March

Posted by Scott on 18 March 2017 - 11:12 PM

Just watched the game back there and the interviews afterwards. He's not the best player, and he did superbly to get us the winning goal today but it's so good hearing how positive Kudus is. Seemed a happy guy and chuffed with a birthday goal.
