Our Christmas gift to the club, thanks to our members, is that we're able to up contributions by another £1,000 a month, taking it to £7,000 per month we're contributing.

Keep on bailing chaps!

Agreed. The whole thing is beginning to stink of self-righteous sycophancy now that Mr. Mclennan is safely installed in the boardroom.

A perfect example of why fan groups shouldn't be anywhere near running a football club.

When MCT kicked off, the general belief seemed to be that Crawford Rae's spending had been restricted by unnamed newcomers to the B.O.D. of the parent company. He had boasted of a three year plan and ambition to take the 'Ton to the top in honour of his deceased father.

Since then it has become clear that there was no such change in the running of Golden Casket which is still family Rae through and through, AND that said family Rae is unwilling to spend adequately on our club.

MCT pledgers never intended money to be GIFTED to family Rae. They were promised tangible improvements to the playing staff which have failed to materialise.

It is sickening to say the least.

For me, the most telling 'lie' from MCT was the change of direction from 'quality squad' to 'quality future'. Sure we all want the future to be bright but they are quite clearly naming their best piece of business the contract extensions of Lyon and Strapp. That's all very good but it doesn't alter the quality of the squad for this season in any way. That was their initial promise.

What we are seeing is a clear start to the club being owned by the fans.

If that is true we might as well pack it in right now. We need a change of ownership with proper stewardship - not abandonment to your Stuart Duncans and Graham McLennans who will still protest their innocence as the club is expelled from league two.

Frankly I couldn't have put it better. McLennan's silvery tongued sales patter was always nauseating but at least there was benefit of doubt about his sincerity.

Now it seems perfectly clear that he is nothing but a Rae lapdog. puke

Agreed that the majority of folk involved ARE only trying to help the 'Ton. That's what happens with crusades. Trouble is that it's well nigh impossible to pull out without looking like a rat deserting a sinking ship.

No doubt their feasibility study will prove to be as phoney as the rest of their extravaganza of failure.They promised to make things better and now they want us to join them in the seaside leagues, while Crawford Rae laughs all the way to the 19th hole!

Our well-intentioned pledgers have been conned I.M.O! puke

So one minute they were going to bring quality players in - THAT'S WHAT THEY SAID PLEDGERS - then they were making 'Christmas gifts' to the Club, and now - only a couple of weeks later - the truth emerges.

MCT appears to be a scam to get the Rae family off the hook.

'Fan ownership' - if properly structured and adequately funded - might work for Morton, but almost 20 years of profligate Raegime have left the fanbase emasculated, fragmented, and disillusioned. M.C.T. will NEVER achieve its target while the product on the park continues to deteriorate, and a 'feasibility study' of the current scenario is farcical.

It's new ownership or a continuing downward spiral to the lower leagues. Thank you Golden Casket.

They have failed because there's simply not enough interest. The majority has had enough!

When you've risen from unknown punter to celebrity fan/club director in a few short months it must be hard to kiss it all goodbye! happy

I think everyone's initial suspicions were that it would be impossible to know if the club would simply cut the budget, then make it up again with MCT money. That's still not been explained how they have overseen that aspect.

I think the correct way to have done it was one that was actually suggested by our old friend Bumshaften. Instead of rushing it all through for the start of the season, maybe they should have taken a whole season to raise funds from the first year so they would have had a lump sum for the next season. That way if the club were to set a budget in pre-season of say £600k, MCT could have bumped that up by another £200k, then held them to account for that in a far easier way.

MCT needs to be viable, properly funded, and overseen by experienced folk with integrity.
It's the last bit that seems to stick in folk's craws.

The fans are being asked to pledge hard earned cash to underwrite a wonderful new Morton when they're just trying (and failing) to keep the wolf from the door.
