Re: Falkirk v Scumfermline 06/10/18

Ok, this is embarrassing but I will admit what I did on Saturday after the game. Myself an two others went and waited at the Main Stand to tell the players what we thought. We did try to get a few more of us, but to be honest, guys who have been to watch Falkirk for 30yrs + are just not interested,...

Re: Falkirk v Dundee Utd 22/9/18

That was one of the most depressing performances in my 35 years of supporting Falkirk. This team has nothing front to back. At least a few tried today - Petra was OK, Dennon at least gave a bit of spark, Rudden cared. The defence tried but Jesus Muirhead and Dallison are abysmal. In midfield there w...

Re: Vs ICT

Based on today's performance, it will be 7th or 8th for us. We were hopeless. Paton is slow and utterly dire. We never looked like scoring. Only positives for me were TOE who had some nice touches and Irving who had a couple of good runs. Haber won some good balls but didnt do much with them. McGhee...

Re: vs Montrose

Too early in the season to be properly worried by that performance. It was terrible but we need to give the team a bit of time. The new boys were all disappointing (except maybe keeper who got pass marks)- Froxy at least created chances but looks slow, TOE/Sammut looked a bit too weak - clearly got ...

Re: 18/19 Predictions and Premonitions

Too early for me to be sure where we will end up. If we get another 5-6 to come in and another 2 or 3 to leave, I think we can challenge. My gut feel is that we will finish 3rd or 4th. Stating the obvious, but unless we get a really decent keeper (like a McGovern) and a 20 goal + a season striker I ...

Re: Patrick Brough

Re: The clear-out

Yip agree with the above. Kidd and O'Hara havent been good enough for the last 2/3 years - christ knows why Hartley has kept them on - not even good enough to be on the bench or squad players. Need to get a much better standard than this. Muirhead should have also been shown the door. Shepherd, McKe...

Re: falkirk v st mirren 28th April 2018

Great strike by Blair but not much else to get excited about. Sad to see Grant and Taiwo go but its the right decision. I would only keep McGhee, Mutch, Sibbs and Longridge out of that squad - Robson if he could find his form. Watson, Muirhead, O'Hara and Kidd try hard but not good enough. Welsh was...

Re: The EX-Bairn Files

I was at the Edinburgh City game yesterday as it is just around the corner from me and I couldnt make it thro to Cappielow. Farid was very unlucky - a hopeless refereeing performance cost him 2 doubtful bookings. He still has a good touch and the flick ons were all still there - but the legs are gon...

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

Not convinced by Longridge yet - not the goalscorer we so desparately need - but at least we are moving out the right players. Luca just never looked good enough. I dont think anyone will ever understand why Houston gave Henderson a 2 year deal in the summer - bizzarre considering he didnt seem to r...

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

I'm starting to get this horrible sinking feeling that Hartley doesn't know what he is doing. Lets be honest the football since he took over has been abysmal. Yes we know the squad is poor but are we really so bad that we have to set up shop to get draws vs Livvy and Dumbarton? Austin out and some g...

Re: Falkirk v Brechin 16th Dec 2017

I quite like the look of the line up but I wouldn't have Miller starting any games this season. A good option with 10 to go but he looks done. Must admit I think we will lose again tomorrow. A team devoid of characters and leadership. We will huff and puff for 88 minutes without troubling their keep...

Re: Dundee Utd v Falkirk *SUNDAY* 19th November

Myself and others were laughed at by some for saying this season would be a complete write off back in January. The squad is muck. The only positive is that Hartley is moving folk out on loan quite quickly and shown other glimpses that he's not happy with the squad. At least he can see what Houston...

Re: Hartley confirmed as the new manager

Pretty happy with the appointment. Need to give him time though and time to bring his own players in - he probably wont be able to overhaul the squad to the degree he will want until next summer. Needs to get us up the table this season (hopefully play offs), but realistically I cant see promotion w...

Really hope it's not Naysmith. Signing mediocre mid table crap from teams like QOS are what's got us into this mess in the first place.

Re: Who should be next manager?

I think Hartley would be my choice - experience at both Alloa and Dundee - give him this season to steady the ship and next season to build his own team to challenge for title (get rid of Kerr, Watson, Shepherd, Gaspo, Kidd, Henderson, Muirhead, Craigen, release both average keepers and sign 1 good ...

Re: V Livi

That was beyond grim. For a team who had not won a game all season, the first half was astoundingly dull, slow and lacking any real effort. Taiwo and Kerr doesnt work - how many times has everyone other than Houston realised this. Drop Kerr and play Craigen or McKee with Taiwo - why is that difficul...

Edinburgh City vs Falkirk

Some random observations from tonight: Harris - although he drifted in and out of the game, overall I thought he looked really good. Some great bursts of pace and some decent set piece deliveries. Kidd - just isnt good enough. Time to move him on if we can. Left Back - still a worry for me. Gallache...

He has - I was meaning he should have been let go before we offered him anything new. Hopefully he will come good but he was horrendous that 1 game I have seen him.
