Re: MORTON V FALKIRK - 20/10/18

Bad as we are, we are probably only a couple of players away from having a side that would be good enough to beat Morton. Watched the highlights and although by their nature they won't show the full story of the game you could see in the 1st half that we aren't totally hapless but it becomes eviden...

The only Falkirk player to have scored a goal against Barcelona?

Re: How to stop the rot?

Putting Mutch in goals behind that defence could pretty much destroy the young boys confidence for ever
Hopefully Mitchell is fit soon

Why not keep Taiwo? Paton is a very similar player but has the added ingredient of being a bampot
Because Taiwo wasn’t good enough

Not as a first choice player, but from the bench, why not?
Scored more goals down south than Dennon, Nelson and Jak
Why not? Because he is rotten. I wonder what you would have said if Houston had signed him for us :lol:
Lazy signing

Re: 18/19 Predictions and Premonitions

I just cant see where all this blind optimism is coming from and will wait and see what our squad looks like in July. To predict we will go from 3rd bottom to league winners is a huge leap of faith. If someone at the start of last season had said we would go from second top to third bottom they wou...

Re: No more academy?

Just to repeat there were no soft loans, no strings attached. Many of those wishing to invest were people who believed in the club having local roots and I know some sponsors are unhappy that we have ditched the academy As for the point on the u14s. I assume then you went to see sibbs, Kingsley and...

The academy could however only go ahead if Falkirk sa...

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

According to the Daily Express, Ian McCall is interested in signing Mark Kerr. Ayr United is about his level and would be a good move for him. Would be a good move for Kerr if he went there. A good servant to the Club and he can leave knowing he can continue playing. agree with this. I like Mark Ke...

Re: Miller and Kerr

Eh - what the fcuk's it got to do with Andy Rodgers?

Re: Kevin O`Hara

There are a couple of deaf and dumb boys in the south stand.
Does that mean Higginbotham cupping his ears during his goal celebration
could be construed as mocking their disability.

I really doubt it, but I’m sure some of the PC brigade could find mileage in it.

Hartley signed Loy for Dundee and hardly played him. He then sent him on lone to st mirren. Do you think anything has changed between them.
Maybe he just had better options up front, or thought Loy wasn’t good enough for the premier league.

Too many people looking too much in to this.IMO

Hartley, on paper, is a great choice. However, I can't stand him. It all stems from his time as a player but as far as I am concerned he's a c*nt. And an ex Jambo c*nt at that.
Everyone’s hatred of Hartley will certainly unite the fans.

So from his point, the only way is up
