Better quality for Quitongo's goal.

Half time. That's the best I've seen us play this season. I wasn't at the St Mirren game so not sure if it's better than that. Tidser has been brilliant. Cannot wait to see Jai's goal again and Forbes' goal was a good finish.
We're giving Queens far too much time in our own half when their on the attack. Hopefully sort that in the next 45.

Quitongo goal of the season. No doubt about it. What a ****ing goal.

Quite something that 3 ex-Clydeview Academy pupils were in the u21 squad (Taylor, Frizzell & Morgan).


Unfortunate that Morton missed out on all three for whatever reason...

Taylor and Morgan were both at Rangers from a young age. At the time they both moved to Kilmarnock and St Mirren I don't think our development squad was up to much and those teams would've been a better option for them.

Expect both teams to score, Saints to edge a five goal thriller.

Almost spot on, Div. Almost.

I said Gunning would not be returning to Morton about 2 months ago. Yesterday Duffy confirms Gunning has no interest in returning to Morton

Yip... totally wrong. Hmm...

Let's say I've narrowed the 'source' down to dozens...

You said Gunning wouldn't be coming back because the management team found it difficult to handle him were unlikely to want to sign him again. You're fooling no one here.
It's been quite obvious for some time Gunning wouldn't come back due to his high wage demands and wanting to stay closer to home if possible, not the fact that the management team don't want him.

Duffy says he doesn't think he'll bring in a CB, because when everyone's fit we'd be running with 3 CB's who wouldn't be playing, and a club like us can't afford that. He also said he tried umpteen times to keep Gavin Gunning in January, and also tried to get him in the summer, but he doesn't want to be here. Flies in the face of what Dr Z says.


Glad Duffy at least attempted to get him back. 

Heard from an excellent source that Gunning was very high maintenance during his time at Cappielow, issues in training. Very unlikely Duffy would want to risk taking that on again.


Would expect an experienced keeper to be one of our signings too.



Gunning was on £2k a week at Grimsby. Even if Morton wanted him back, they wouldn't get remotely close to his salary demands.


From what I've heard though (and the source couldn't be any better), it's very unlikely the management team would want to deal with him again. Extremely high maintenance.



Still being a ****er eh Toby ;-).  You just have to be single.


'High maintenance' was the exact description used by an ex-pro that is best pals with one of our management team.. passed on several interesting stories about the goings on at Morton when I chatted to him just after the season ended.


I know LOADS that you don't know! :thumbup2: No need to respond as I'd somehow forgotten to block you.. remedied now.



Absolutely no chance of Gunning re-signing for the reasons mentioned a couple of times previously - too expensive and he's hard work/not all there. We also already have 4 experienced guys that can play centre-half. 



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.

The good thing with the fan card is you don't have to make a financial investment early on.

Honestly think the current squad wouldn't have a chance of finishing top half, so very curious to see who Duffy brings in before the league kicks off. Likely to make or break our season.

Why so? Every signing has been an improvement on those who left apart from Lindsay.

#1070173 Youth Academy

Posted by Scott on 03 July 2017 - 10:58 AM

Ok, will agree to disagree. I personally wouldn't regard a young player that breaks into the first team within a year of coming to the club as being a product of the clubs youth academy.

When they both came to Morton they weren't anywhere near ready for first team football. Now they are and are valuable assets to the club. I'd say that's a success.

If he's "hard work/not all there", why did Duffy try to keep him in January then?

That was one of the best moments I've had as a Morton fan. Winding those w*nkers up either side of us for 85 mins then we take the lead. Never seen so much rage from an opposition support in my life.

Full time 5-2. Couple of the goals in my tweets: https://twitter.com/...572126411919360

Played very well first half. Thistle had a mix of first team and reserves playing but they still had a fairly strong side out most of the time.
Started with:
Doyle O'Ware Barr Strapp
Forbes Tidser Murdoch McHugh
Thomson Oliver

McHugh and Thomson changed about a few times and changed to a 4-3-3 at one stage.
Ended the game with quite a few u20s on. Harkins played well and looked in good nick.
A fairly promising performance overall.

Edit - only concern was Quitongo, Lamie and Kilday were all there but didn't have any kit on. Hope they're not injured.

Do we have any other ex-players playing in European competition this season? Barrie McKay I guess. You'd fancy Rangers to get past Progres Niederkorn of Luxembourg, but then again these are the Banter Years.

Anyone else?

edit: Robbie Crawford will be in Europe because FH of Iceland enter the Champions League in the Second Qualifying Round, same as Celtic. FH will play the winners of Vikungur (Faroes) and Trepca 89 (Kosovo).

Jordan Allan for Derry City as well as Kenny Shiels being his manager.

What do you mean might? Are you speculating or has this been mentioned elsewhere?
