Re: Today's Press Release on Availability of Substantial Funds

I think our position in the league will be a huge indicator of how desperate we are to sign players in January. That in itself is an indicator to agents thet they can bump the price and it's not as if every interview that Ray has done over the last few weeks hasn't been focussed on getting us to Jan...

Re: Tom Dallison

I'd be interested to know how many were actually watched by Hartley or his team and not just accepted on the recommendation of the scout. I'd be surprised and worried in equal measure if any were. Given that most were signed pre season, Hartley wouldn't have seen any of them. And that really is a d...

I guess he's saying you didn't do what you've said despite 2 other posters seeing you do it!
Ignore him.

Re: Falkirk v Scumfermline 06/10/18

I saw Dallison leaving the ground on his own today and he wasn't wearing training gear. Can only hope that that's a sign. On training days the players generally arrive and depart in their own clothes. Fresh training gear is laid out for them by the kitman when they arrive and then put in the laundr...

Re: Falkirk v Scumfermline 06/10/18

At one point, after another pathetic attempt at tackling, I saw Ray turn to the bench and say "He's absolutely useless". Needless to say I wasn't able to work out who he meant as there were so many to choose from. How some of these guys have made a career out of football is beyond me. Think some of ...

Re: FALKIRK 0 1 NOMADS

The scrapping of the academy divided opinion. I wanted it kept but can understand why others didnt as it failed to get us promoted since relegation. In theory the Brentford model sounded a good idea but the execution has been a disaster. In fairness to the Bod they tried something different. They a...

Ray MacKinnon is being touted.

Personally wouldn't be happy as pretty sure he's just a hoofball merchant
Why would he leave Morton?

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

.....and unfortunately, they rarely get it that wrong.
What were we last year?

Re: We really are a bunch of moaning gits.

Exciting week for the club, pr and signings at the start of the week was excellent. Come on here tonight and all you get are folk moaning that the strips aren't right and we've signed folk that nobody has heard of!

Re: We really are a bunch of moaning gits.

I came onto the forum last night and the only 2 posts that were new were one slagging the strip and one moaning about not knowing who the players are. I accept that they have been some positive comments but on the whole the majority of posts on here are quite negative. As for AL_bairn recalling this...

You'd think it would make sense to do it within the timeframe of the season rather than calendar year given the 31/12/18 - 1/1/19 scenario.
That's far too sensible an idea.
Sorry, I'll get my coat :wink:

You never know, it might actually benefit him as their style might become less, ahem, "enthusiastic" and involve passing the ball to each other a bit more.
