Re: Fan Ownership

Can anyone advise if acknowledgement emails are sent to fans who pledged on the web site? I went onto the site and tried to pledge, but the buttons did not appear to function properly. Not sure if pledge was received, or if I need to try again. There is no acknowledgement email but If your pledge g...

TIME FOR CHANGE

Our club is in real danger of going down to the third tier of Scottish Football. I am sure our major shareholders don't want this to be their legacy, so instead of asking us to climb mountains to raise £800,000 why don't they just hand over their shares to a local consortium of business people and f...

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

On page 8 of the accounts, it states that we made a trading loss of £671,735. However due to "other operating income" of £835,324 we made a net profit of £163,589. Does anyone know what makes up "other operating income". The "other operating income" of £835,324 came from transfer fees (Tony Gallagh...

Re: Falkirk Racists (Alleged) v Greenock Morton

Another point gained but a dreadful game played in freezing conditions.

I don't blame the players. They are doing their best but they are simply not good enough.

Ray McKinnon has done well to keep us in touch with the bottom clubs and lets hope we can kick on in January.

Concerts, Little Mix etc?
On page 14 it states that "events" made a profit of £20,471 in the year to 31st May 2018.

The little mix concert was in the summer of 2018 and will appear in next years accounts.

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

I am more concerned about the current financial year.

Bottom of the league. Out of all the cups. No academy players to sell.

You don't need to be an accountant to know that next years results are going to be horrendous.

Ken Waddell was "Mr Falkirk Herald" and the esteem in which he is held by his former staff says it all.

Re: Prince Buaben

Best player on the park on Saturday until he went off injured at half time.

Need to get him fit as we will need players of his calibre if we are to avoid relegation this season.

Re: Falkirk v Scumfermline 06/10/18

Ok, this is embarrassing but I will admit what I did on Saturday after the game. Myself an two others went and waited at the Main Stand to tell the players what we thought. We did try to get a few more of us, but to be honest, guys who have been to watch Falkirk for 30yrs + are just not interested,...

Re: vs Ayr Utd :Post Match

I was there and I thought we played really well in the first half and deserved to go in 2-0 ahead.

The half time talk should have been about keeping it tight but when Ayr scored after just 3 minutes the floodgates opened.

Looking at what was being said in the Herald, we were close to signing Tony Ralston from Celtic and Darren O'Dea from Dundee
If we didn't actually sign them, the Herald might as well have said we were close to signing Lionel Messi and Ronaldo.

Re: Vs ICT

I find it fairly astounding that possibly our worst player of last season not only remains at the club, but will start and likely still captain the side. Not only is he a terrible weak link in defence, and offers little from set pieces, he is STILL probably the best central defender we have at the ...

Tom Taiwo expected to sign a 2 year deal at Hamilton Accies.

A really nice guy and a great move for him after being released by Falkirk.
