Tonight I'm embarrassed - not my only emotion - but Graham McLennan told us quite clearly that our MCT pledges would not only add to the playing budget but would bring QUALITY into the squad. Anybody can check that out. How much more are we supposed to suffer before we pull our pledges en masse?

That was absolute SHITE today.  thumbs down

Back on topic and McLennan and his crew DID promise that quality would be added to the squad, but it strikes me that they have been conned out of their money.

It was a very stupid statement to make. Paying good money guarantees you nothing.

I recall the McGraw Consortium offering good money only for DDFR to use the Professor to block their offer with the administrators.

That was the beginning of the slippery slope under Raes.

And the slope gets stepper and steeper.

Did that consortium actually make an offer? unsure

Well that's new to me! I clearly remember Stuart Duncan (one time Trust chairman and Club director) claiming on the now disappeared Trust website (under 'How it all began') that the consortium couldn't get their act together!

Well, Mr. Duncan has told quite a few fibs in the last 20 years.

That is exactly what Stuart told us in the early Trust days. He was well respected in the Morton community at that time.

Then there was Mileson who wanted to turn a village team into a premier league outfit! I wonder what might have happened if Rae senior had just delegated but it's all too late now.
