Club needs to make an apology to its fans. NOW.
:lol:

It took 2 days for a match report so we should get one sometime next year!

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

Murmurings on social media that there will be a move to block the re-appointment of Margaret Lang as Chairman at the AGM. Personally I have a lot of time for her but in terms of the running of the club and recent events I would probably back action brought by the small shareholders to have her (and ...

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

Fan led anti-racism protest to be held at Saturdays game. Agree with the sentiment but we’re now a fortnight since the alleged incident and the culprits haven’t been apprehended as far as anyone is aware. A stand full of people and racist language used but no-ones came forward and shopped them :!: M...

Falkirk v Alloa : 08th December 2018

Can we build on Saturdays result and begin to climb the table or was Saturday another false dawn?

Re: Inverness v Falkirk : 01 December 2018

Well I never saw that coming after the events of last week!

Ultimately it doesn’t matter how we do it and we are off the bottom :)

Onwards and upwards hopefully and hoping we can put a run together as inconsistent is the only consistent thing we are.

I think we’re entering the age of ‘thought police’.
A new branch of Police Scotland will be set up to monitor and control the citizenry.

It'll all come out in the wash if it gets to trial. As yet we have nothing other than the statements by the player and club and a lot of hearsay.

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

It’s all conjecture until such time as Police Scotland and/or the club make a further statement. All supports have racist elements and in the main incidents of this nature are few and far between. Hopefully it is dealt with as swiftly as the statement was made. As said elsewhere there is a distincti...

Inverness v Falkirk : 01 December 2018

Good luck to those who are attending this on Saturday after the result against Stenny. You are the committed (or should that be “you should be committed:?

The players should want a reaction and result judging by the comments of Muirhead but whether they can is another matter.

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

Now if (and I think it could well be) its proved that Lewis was racially targeted then lets hope appropriate action by the legal authorities is taken and the person(s) responsible punished to the fullest extent of the law. However, for me this whole thing stinks. If Lewis was racially abused then o...

Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

As reported on the club website and national media. As if our on field performance wasn’t bad enough we now have a moron or more who think it acceptable to abuse our players because of the colour of their skin and embarrassing us off the pitch. Hopefully the culprit is found and banned. No place for...

TL;DR
Basically to summarise: Houston was lazy because he signed X players and McKinnon could possibly sign Y players who will probably not be good enough.

Check book or no check book show me a manager who has a perfect track record of signings.

Re: SCOTTISH CUP R3: Stenhousemuir v. Falkirk : 24th November

You would hope after yesterday that the penny starts to drop with a few of these players.

What is hard to stomach this morning is the bragging of the Stenny fans - primarily because it's true!

They were the better team and I can quite believe we're the worst team they've faced this season.

Re: SCOTTISH CUP R3: Stenhousemuir v. Falkirk : 24th November

From last weeks Partick thread:- Id like to apologise to Thistle fans, as you must be gutted to walk away without the 3 points. Only 1 side was playing to win that game & it certainly wasn't the home side. Anybody looking for a cup shock next week, get your money on Stenny. If I say we were dreadfu...

Re: SCOTTISH CUP R3: Stenhousemuir v. Falkirk : 24th November

Disgraceful performance and this should sound a warning for the future. We've just come off 2nd best to Stenhouse-fukn-muir! :bang: We knew this squad wasn't good enough for the Championship and this result hints they're not even fit for League 1 :? Stenny deserved it and showed us up good and prope...

Re: SCOTTISH CUP R3: Stenhousemuir v. Falkirk : 24th November

Intriguing game tomorrow as Bairns fans think this might be a potential banana-skin.

However, Stenny insiders believe that they are about to receive a doing - I suspect the game will fall somewhere in-between.

Going for an away win and the fact it's on my doorstep is even better!

Re: Partick today.

Here is something even MORE controversial. I see signs in Sammut that he could really be a decent player in the midfield. Just glimpses of it on Saturday. However, I think to see how he could REALLY perform, it will take him the rest of this season playing in the Championship before it would shine ...

Some of the abuse Haber continues to get is embarrassing... Agree with your post except this. Haber doesn’t do enough for me and wins the odd flick on which I’d expect for his size but where’s the hold up play and ultimately why is it that at set pieces in the box he does an invisible man impressio...

Re: Partick today.

Some folk can't see the woods for the trees. From where we are now to where we were earlier this team would've lost that game today. The crocks now will be the ones putting in the shift at the business end I have no doubt. McKinnon has earned it as he has at least managed to get the shower Hartley ...

Re: Partick today.

Not sure what Kiddy is on about. Lewis could have the best service going and he still wouldn't score as he just can't play the position. End of. Few stray passes but we let Thistle have it as they too are toothless. Referee was inconsistent if I was being kind and Quitongo deserved a yellow for thro...
