JIMBO (FROM THE GREENOCK TELEGRAPH) Morton10

Sport10th October

McAlister hopes Morton are surprise package this season
By Christopher Dodds

Sports reporter

MORTON skipper Jim McAlister says that his tenth season at Cappielow has been a rollercoaster and backed his teammates to come good as the campaign progresses.

The midfielder says the league is throwing up plenty of surprises and he hopes that Morton can continue to produce a few of their own as the first quarter of the campaign comes to an end.

McAlister admits their away form has been a big disappointment but is confident they can turn it around.

He told the Tele: “It’s the way the league is, it’s a rollercoaster – which has made my tenth year special in itself.

“Does it surprise you that Alloa are beating Dundee United? Or Queens going up to Partick Thistle and getting three points? Probably not.

“It throws up results like that all the time, you’re going to go from extreme highs one week to probably extreme lows the next.

“We got used to that last year and it’s all about how you come out the other side of it, but I think that we’ll come good over the season.

“Obviously our away form is widely known to not be good enough, but it’ll come good if our home form stays as consistent.”

McAlister is enjoying playing an integral part in the first-team and believes he has found a new lease of life after being deployed further up the park in a more advanced midfield role.

He hopes that with his new-found freedom he can kick on and have more of an impact to mark a decade at the club in style.

He said: “I’m enjoying having so much involvement. I’ve always said that once you go over that 30 barrier the most important thing is to keep playing as much as possible to keep it in the legs.

“On Saturday I really enjoyed playing a bit further up the park.

“I had a good bit of freedom, I wasn’t ‘holding’ up the pitch like I was for much of last season so it was good to get a bit more involved in the play.

“It was good to go and press and get into the box and it obviously paid off when I got the equaliser.

“We were at home and obviously wanted to go for the win, but if the way you play can trigger a reaction from other players then you’re onto a good thing.

“We set a lot of traps throughout the game, especially when they were stepping in with the ball, so it was good to see that what we’d worked on in training came to fruition.”

I suppose you'd say the same about Messi if he was played in goals!

Jimbo was well and truly fucked about under Rae's useless managers (like several other youngsters) yet he still managed to carve out a reasonable career for himself.

Four wasted years under Jim the Dim. It could have been SO different. Rolling Eyes

Well said but it’s actually the better part of 20 wasted years under the Raes and they still have their brown nosed acolytes banging the big drums for them. Why do we bother?

Will never forget seeing the young McAlister for the reserves at right midfield and thought he was a real prospect. Then he ended up on the left courtesy of the same clot who thought Spoonsy was a right back.

Twitter feed asking if he's lost the plot. NAH - he probably got a nice wee bung for the interview!

It’s sad to read so much negativity about him. He always gave 100% and still does IMO

I used to love watching Jimbo back in those heady early Rae days. May yet get back to see him play again before he finally hangs up those boots. What energy.

A lot of folk mate. I work for them! Exclamation

For starters we don't make it from scabby Rusky tatties, and in a test run by The Telegraph we beat the lot including Grey Goose and Absolut.

So there! Razz

Sorry - just caught you - we've been over here for almost five years but were in London for the better part of ten before that.
