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.

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.

Re: 18/19 Predictions and Premonitions

He's away to test himself at a higher level and good luck to him. I personally think that he's found his level and will be one of those players to move between a number of average Scottish teams without really getting anywhere. I can see him at Raith/Morton in the future. He's got skill in abundance...

Re: The clear-out

It's worth remembering that whilst the games are over the season isn't. I'd imagine most of the players were signed with promotion / playoffs in mind so won't be released until the end of May. We've maybe heard about Grant, Taiwo etc as they have something lined up (as happened with Miller and Kerr ...

Re: falkirk v Dumbarton 24th Feb 2018

You’ve got to add to that list the loan players and Welsh. Wages will also be freed up as we won’t have the 20s. On the keepers we currently have Hazard, Mitchell, Thomson, Mutch and Young which is utterly ludicrous for a club of our size. Expect Mitchell to be given a chance and the rest to be rel...

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

It may be difficult to attract players to us just now. Facing a play off to avoid relegation, in the press for all the wrong reasons and I can't exactly see us paying big bucks. I'm confident there will be a couple more faces this window but maybe some are biding their time to see if a better offer ...
