    Just under 500 Scottish men per annum commit suicide. The above is an indicator of why men cannot talk about personal issues.

    Being told 'Get over it' is probably the most harmful thing to tell someone going through any sort of difficulty. It's attitudes like that which prevent people going through any sort of issues from truly opening up about it for fear of being perceived as weak. I struggled physically as a result of a completely debilitating back injury I suffered at work that put my life on hold for 18 months before a specialist finally listened, diagnosed that a disc had been herniated in two places and decided surgery was the only option. The mental knock on of 18 months of chronic, unrelenting pain was profound and something I genuinely wouldn't wish on anyone. Through all of this, I was given little or no support in my work and told to 'get over it' by bosses and colleagues as I struggled to do an 8 hour shift of heavy manual labour at a time when I had trouble even standing up and couldn't take sick leave due to the fact that I was relatively new to the role. Yet I just plugged on in the mistaken belief that I'd get through it to the other side and it would all subside. This had a terrible effect on me physically, though it was only with hindsight that I realised how badly affected I was mentally. The attitude of those around me made me feel like a fraud and I wondered for so long if anything actually was wrong with me or I was just unable to physically hack the job and it was all in my head. A cocktail of painkillers, muscle relaxants, and restless nights was all I had for the majority of 2015 and half of 2016 until my surgery last May. I genuinely feel for anyone whose head isn't in a good place for whatever reason and like others, I hope it's a load of murmured shite in the case of big Gary. But if there is any truth at all in it, he will hopefully be back when he is ready.

    Quite amazing that we're the only team to have beaten Livingston in the quarter and we did so away from home and playing with 10 men for over an hour.

    We could limit entry into the Scottish Cup to League Clubs only. We could rebrand it as the League Cup.

    Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Yet again we get a win when it matters. Great to get the monkey off our back regarding Dumbarton. Excellent finishes by Reilly and Sutton, with the latter looking a lot more like his old self . Good to see JR getting right once again.

    For the money we had our stadium is ideal. I'm in the minority as I like our ground. The "souless " part is mainly due to the shite football we've been used to watching.

    Good to see Sutton getting on and then scoring - it's a squad game these days and we're gonna need guys like Sutton & Hilson to chip with goals if we're gonna maintain our current position. All in all (league & cups) a good first quarter.

    It is also worthwhile pointing out that the only people who need to know about what is keeping Mac out of action are the club board, the manager and his family. As fans, all we need to know is that he is out of action with no date for his return. He should be getting 100% support from all of us IMO regardless of what is keeping him out,

    I think the record we've had since moving maybe influences peoples opinion of our stadium... That and it's no Old St Mirren Park. Could it have been designeda bit better with a different budget or being a bit more creative with the budget we had? Yeah probably. Have to say though I am a fan of our stadium and it's been a great place to be over the last few months. What excites me more is the potential it has. Plenty development opportunities and with the business Gordon Scott is in, interesting things could happen in the future.

    McGraw McGraw ........

    Aint He Just Fecking Braw ? Congratulations Sir A Morton & Scottish Football Legend. OF FAME 15th October 2017 by Jonathan Mitchell Club legend Allan McGraw has tonight been inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame during a gala ceremony at Hampden Park. The 78-year-old, dubbed Mr Morton for his many years at Cappielow, served the Ton with distinction, first as a striker in the 1960s, scoring an incredible 61 goals in 1963-64 alone, and then as manager in the 80s and 90s. Mr McGraw joins ex-Ton stars Joe Jordan, Billy Steel, Jimmy Cowan, Bobby Evans, and Stevie Chalmers in the list of greats to be recognised for their contribution to the Scottish game. Another ex-Ton player, John Clark, was also inducted at this evening’s event. Clark, best known for his time at Celtic, ended his career at Cappielow, spending two seasons here between 1971 and 1973. Everyone at Greenock Morton Football Club would like to congratulate Allan and John on their prestigious and richly-deserved honours.

    Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    An acid test passed against a team we have struggled against for years in a stadium we never win at, fantastic result. A dream opening quarter, keep this up Saints starting next week against a surprise struggler, the type of team we need to be at least not losing to away from home if we want to be champions. Special wee mention to Dumbarton tv, that was a really nice, tightly edited highlights package.

    Dumbarton v St Mirren 14th Oct

    Surprised at some folk saying McGinn wasn't good. I thought he was our best player. Completely dominated the midfield. Great to see big John coming on and scoring. Thought he looked well up for it as soon as he came on.

    I'm just resurfacing after the double boot in the baws of Scotland and St Mirren's respective exits last week. We could really do with a boost tomorrow. I think we will get one and will end the bogey run against Dumbarton. Dumbarton 1 St Mirren 2 Supporting evidence for this opinion ? None.

    Thanks wee man gave us all a wee bit of hope there , and then feckin snatched right back off us . No seriously done an ok job but was loyal to too many players that should never have been near our international team. Hope the new man looks at the younger players on the fringes of the squad Gordan had.

    Exactly. There were a few Dumbarton supporters commenting on how Stewart's movement caused their defence a lot of problems. It also shouldn't be forgotten, but for an excellent goal line clearance, Stewart was unlucky not to have scored in the first minute. Two players at very different points in their senior careers. Both will contribute significantly to our promotion push.

    I don't think the shape of the main stand is that bad, but certainly could have been a better colour put on it. As long as I like what I see when facing the pitch, the outside won't worry me. Large billboards with doors that can be opened at the 4 corners (similar to what Hibs have) would help to keep the noise in and maybe the ball as well

    Totally agree. Whatever the issue is Gary will be back when he is ready and not before then. Footballers deserve the same confidentiality as anyone else in their workplace.

    What exactly constitutes a 'real injury?' There's a few rumours - wholly unsubstantiated at this point I might add...bit they are definitely there - that Gary is having a bit of a hard time in a non-physical sense with one thing or another. Does this fall under the category of 'petted lip' or 'ripped tights'? In this day and age, I think it's fair enough that a club might help and be patient with a player rather than telling them to stop whining and get on with it. As I said, no foundation to this yet but we've all heard the mumblings so it's fair to address them. If this is the case then well done to the club for not rushing the guy back.

    Oh come on. TC can identify a bad football manager with his eyes closed. Remember he was never fooled by Jack Ross. What scotland needs is experience, maybe in the Gus McPherson mould. He already knows how to play at Hampden....never had a problem there......ever.

    Wrong place to be talking about it,maybe shull could start a thread,but our stadium would have been much better if it had been elevated.The front few rows don't give a great view. Anyway it's a great wee stadium.........when we're winning.

    Ross Tokely

    We're covering old ground here , but here's a revamp. We played the midweek cup-tie at Inverness a few days before the ill-fated tackle on Kerr at LS. The ref for the cup game was one Kevin Bisset , the same Kevin Bisset who has a stand/enclosure named after him at Inverness now. Entering by the turnstile that midweek the old guy collecting the dosh said to a regular contributor on here , "you're wasting your time coming all this way son , the chairman's son-in-law is the ref !!!!! With about a hour gone , big Bash was clean through on goal and was chopped by Tokely , it was the clearest red you've ever seen , a red that would have seen him miss the game on the Saturday , but Bisset decide a yellow would do, therefore freeing up Tokely to play on the Saturday, and virtually end Kerr's career !

    I think Stewart has potential to blossom into a good player for us. Tell me how you think players develop, do you think sitting on the bench helps progression? If Stewart had 160+ goals to his name he would be playing for PSG. That statement was quite simply one of the strangest things I’ve read. I think Sutton is a good impact player, he comes on, he scores a goal - he does his job. That doesn’t mean to say I wouldn’t like to see Sutton start. I also think it’s a competitive position, and JR (who btw, knows a lot more than you and me) has clearly got his tactics right or we would have drawn or lost. You can have your opinion, that doesn’t always mean you’re right. You just like to listen to yourself berate others, and there’s simply no need for it. There’s yer contribution now pipe down.

    The other Ross Stewart has conceded fewer goals in his career than Samson. Get him in goals. Sorry, does that not fit your argument? Let me try again ... actually, no, I can't be bothered.
