Re: Ken Waddell

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

A great Bairns supporter and a true gentleman.

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 ...

According to the bookies we are 6th favourites to win the league this season.

.....and unfortunately, they rarely get it that wrong.
What about Livingston. :wink:

Tom Taiwo

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.

Re: Club Statement

It might be good for the BFL guys to sit down at the end of the season and discuss how their scheme could be developed into a community ownership model. All the research suggests that these schemes are only successful in times of crisis but it would be useful to have a community ownership plan ready...

Re: Falkirk vs. Dunfermline 07-04-18

We look like a collection of individuals rather than a team.

No spirit, no passion and apart from Sibbs no appreciation of what that game meant to the fans.

Nice to see the "behind the goals" coverage on you tube giving full coverage of the pre match tribute to Alex Blackwood.

Well deserved for more than 20 years of service to the club.

Re: The clear-out

Talk seems to be of a total squad of 18-20 max next season. Currently we must have nearer 40 signed players at a guess and if talk is of in the region of 12 coming in then going to be over 30 departures. This will be the biggest clearout in the clubs history surely? That would make a lot sense. How...

Re: The clear-out

I think you may be disappointed on the contracts front with a number of players still in contract for next season.

For example our top earner, Rory Loy, was given a 2 year deal.

Re: Bairns v Franchise FC

One of the worst games I have seen in a long time with players on both sides lacking the basic ability to cross a ball.... even from a corner kick.

A very poor advert for Scottish Football
