Re: No more academy?

My point of view is get us back in to the SPL, then look to get a Youth Facility back in place. Hartley is concentrating 100% on 1st team squads to get us back up, probably not this season, but hopefully next season if the momentum continues. If it looks like we are heading back up, start putting t...

Re: No more academy?

I think the number was £3 million income over 7 years. Looking at the accounts of forth valley academy Falkirk paid in anything between £100k to £140k per annum. We then had the cost of the under 20s on top which is rumoured to be £200k per annum. Now as we know the u20s league finishes at the end ...

Re: v ICT 27th Jan

A game of little note decided by two pens.

I'd heard a lot about Robson but he was no better than average.

Were winning while not being great and still have a fragility hence the ICT goal.

Upto 8th and that's where we want to be come the seasons end.

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

It's disappointing that we haven't always seen the best of our young players when they've come through recently. Whether it's been management decisions or Swansea stock piling promising players its hindered some of these guys development. Good luck to Tony. Much maligned recently but could feel he w...

Re: The EX-Bairn Files

Balatoni signs for Torquay Utd.

Was decent and I'd like to have seen him stay but his deal made him expendable.

Re: Miller and Kerr

Can someone please say what these rumours are!? Rusty Nail, Quidsin- what allegations are you alluding to?? Pish, you can drop players without telling them that they are bad influence’s at the club. Especially a club they have given so much to. The way Hartley treats players and people in general i...

Re: Miller and Kerr

Stretcher for Rodgers! Does he still work in Overland? He doesn’t. I think Rodgers point is those two have done more for Falkirk than Hartley, so far, and if what’s been alleged is accurate then the situation should have been handled differently. For instance, Hartley could’ve been diplomatic and t...

Who appears in the “Our Time” posters now? I feel we have a right to know who replaces Fash on that poster.
Do we think he’s taken the fall for the marketing campaign. Harsh.

agree with Duncan freemason this is a better site than p&b with more serious football chat and less tedious repetitive immature "banter" so if true will be a shame if it dies.
If the forum were to return it would be a clean slate. My worry is whether it would be the same or if it could grow.

Re: Last day of One F

Not surprised to see this forum die on it's arse. It had become such a source of negativity it was a laughing stock - I'm told Falkirk staff were instructed not to read it far less participate. As a source of information on stadium developments and planning, triallists and the like it was quite goo...

Safe to say that the forum isn’t being actively managed so chances are today will be the last day of posts.

Re: No more academy?

The club is struggling and a lot of what we’ve done is unsustainable.

Interesting to note in light of this the go-ahead of hospitality even when no game against Brechin took place. Are we living hand-to-mouth currently :shock:

Striker Adam Nelson and left-back Tommy Robson of Sunderland being mooted as January signings in the Falkirk Herald.

A roll of the dice on these two.
Tommy Robson confirmed by SAFC on an initial 6-month deal.
