PFA Pitch Ratings Report

Interesting that we came 6th out of all the pitches in the Championship and 25th of all 42 league clubs.

Could this study beg the question: Does our pitch help or hinder the team overall.

Re: Sibbald signs for Ferranti thistle

I've said elsewhere I'm disappointed that he's gone to Livvy of all teams but deep down I'm not really that disappointed he's gone at all. I also don't have much time for the "he's one of our own" chat - he made it abundantly obvious last closed season that he wanted away and prior to that would hav...

Back the Bairns Imagery

Hi

On the off chance, does anyone have any pictures relating to the BTB campaign they'd like to share?

I seem to recall seeing a billboard at Brockville but can't source it on Google.

Please PM me if you do.

Thanks

Re: Tom Dallison

Interested to see how long it takes for the BBC to publish news regarding closed season signings below the Premiership.

Probably a moan belonging in another topic but they really do our league a dis-service in terms of coverage.

Re: The clear-out

... and so it begins . Sad to see some of those names go but don’t disagree with the decision. Hoping that the club are now negotiating with those in contract to come to a mutual parting. Still too many who aren’t the solution to our problem. My greatest fear is Harris is liked by Hartley and he *th...

Re: Club Statement

Jesus Christ! Some people swallow any old crap with a positive spin. This CEO has done nothing! He gets paid over 70K a year for what? We'd be better off with 2 more players in the squad for that. He is CEO of probably the worst full-time club in Scotland, but who are only a couple of hundred off b...

Re: Club Statement

Sounds like the chairman was being ‘economical’ with the truth, possibly to appease supporters after the dreadful season we’ve had and with one eye on selling ST for next season.

Re: Dumbarton Away

Yesterday's result typifies the standards of 1F, three moans before kick off and after the "Bairns" knock in FIVE goals away at Dumbarton, which has been a bogey ground for Falkirk, NOTHING! The excuse will be that it is a meaningless fixture. None of you like taking to the keyboard after a win but...

Re: Our Season in Quarters

Dire reading and lays bare how bad this season has been.

Also utterly exposes how under invested we've been that St.Mirren, relegated in 2015 have bounced back in 3 years and yet we will be approaching 9 years stuck in the Championship (if we avoid the play-off which isn't a certainty).

Re: Inverness away

Have to say that I'm unconvinced that PH will get us competing nearer the top next season. Jakubiak aside, I haven't seen anything in the players he's brought in that assures me that the new strategy will work. Robson has regressed (akin to Gallacher as they're both inexperienced) and I don't get th...

Bragging rights at stake for this one as I think they'll comfortably finish above us and in the play-offs with the run-in they have :roll: For us, it's about getting as high up the table as possible as 5th or 6th will guarantee 200K+ income for the rebuild that will happen in the summer.

Re: falkirk v rangers

We had half chances and did well to score but the defending was criminal. As noted countless times we have zero quality at centre-half and both got found out. Muirhead may try hard but I’m afraid his race is run with us and has to be moved on - he’s not a full back, wing back, midfielder or centre h...

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.

It's disappointing that we haven't always seen the best of our young players when they've come through recently.

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.
