Nobody’s knicker wetting about anything, champ.
Three posters on this page are indeed wetting their frilly knickers and registering their 'concern' about relegation play-offs, which are not a serious prospect.
I’ve said I don’t expect to finish in the play offs at either end of the table, but the evidence in front of my eyes from having watched us suggest we’d be more likely to finish 9th than 4th.
We are closer to 4th than 9th - and will remain closer to 4th than 9th - even on the basis of the results and performances that you have witnessed. These are facts.
And from the evidence of the two times I’ve seen Dumbarton this season, they weren’t comfortably poorer than their opponents on those two occasions.
Dumbarton were a comfortably poorer side in both their matches against Morton: they spent the home match hemmed in for large periods of the game and benefited from a catastrophic set of defensive errors to earn their point at Cappielow. Aitken himself admitted that they were second best and was glad to get the result. A conclusion that is also borne out by their results against everyone else in the division and their place in the league table as well.
Knicker wetting knee-jerk reactions isn’t typically my thing when things aren’t to my taste at Morton, as you well know. If anything I’d expect you to accuse me of the opposite and showing too much faith in the current squad and management team to turn out form round and push us up the table.
There is nothing to 'turn round' here though. An average squad is currently plodding around in mid-table and with a few short-term injuries now clearing up, repeats of the Queen of the South selection farce aren't likely to reoccur. The pressing issue in this campaign is not 4th or 9th - which has already been comprehensively dealt with above - it is whether an utterly mediocre campaign and - just as importantly - three probable cup exits at the first time of asking represents progress at the club or an acceptable record for the manager.

The site is supposed to be a place for the extended 'family' of Morton supporters - having an affinity with people that you don't know, because you share a love of your local football club. It's not supposed to be about point scoring and showing how 'clever' or 'funny' you are, or just being downright rude and offensive to people you don't know, because you can get away with it. Unfortunately, it seems the classic case of people who have little standing/presence in real life, use this forum as a way of making themselves feel as if they are something. It's sad, and I've said that before..
So, having been on Morton forums for about 15 years I guess, I've had enough... well done t*ssers, another Morton supporter driven away. You can all feel happy at how 'clever' you are
