Re: Ayr Utd v Falkirk : 05th January 2019

Interestingly, Ray says in his interview that Petra will be back training next week.
Apparently, most of the new boys hadn’t played for months!

Re: TIME FOR CHANGE

Our club is in real danger of going down to the third tier of Scottish Football. I am sure our major shareholders don't want this to be their legacy, so instead of asking us to climb mountains to raise £800,000 why don't they just hand over their shares to a local consortium of business people and ...

Re: FFC v DAFC 29/12

RM’s interview is a must.
Not the usual stuff.
Much more honest regarding the pile of s... we have.
Petra has serious injury and is in Lithuania.
Most of the new players will be in by mid January.
Very revealing

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

We’re again mentioned today in the national press as one of the club’s with a racism problem.
This is now beyond a joke for the club, the fans and, especially the individual wrongly branded a ‘racist’.
Surely, the club should now issue a full statement.

Pretty disgusting that it's taking the club so long to issue an apology on this.

We would like to apologise for the upset this has...

Re: Falkirk v Alloa : 08th December 2018

Irving and Muirhead were completely useless.
Surely the introduction of Buaben and Sammut would have made a difference.
Kidd was being run ragged at RB and a change there was definitely required.
No disrespect to Ray, who has done a great job, but I do think he should have made changes.

Oh dear, this is becoming very tiresome indeed. So much virtue signalling going on. If it was a private remark ABOUT the player - so what!! If it was directed towards the player, then it is bad - very bad manners indeed and probably breaks the law as it stands. Either way, he is a rotten football pl...

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

On page 8 of the accounts, it states that we made a trading loss of £671,735. However due to "other operating income" of £835,324 we made a net profit of £163,589. Does anyone know what makes up "other operating income". Absolutely not. This is my point about lack of transparency!! It never used to...

Re: Falkirk v Alloa : 08th December 2018

Agree with Olaf.
Against the Warriors we tried to be a bit more adventurous and we were punished brutally for it.
With the present group of players we need to play ultra defensive, no matter whom we are playing against.

Re: Inverness v Falkirk : 01 December 2018

Agree with Pete. We were very good. Muirhead was in midfield which kept him out of danger areas. Stars for me were Robson(apart from a few errors), Harrison, Brough, Paton, Rudden (immense) and Petra. Would love to see the new RB as Kidd is so limited. Fasan is a complete bomb scare and was at fault...

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

On further examination, I have to conclude that these accounts are the most uninformative FFC accounts that I have ever seen. They only show the absolute basic statutory minimum. In previous years under MR we were given lots of information. The only revenue fact is that we pay £75k per annum for the...

Re: Accounts and AGM notice

Received mine today.
AGM on Wednesday 19th December.
We made a group profit of £163k including an events profit of over £20k.
At 31st May we had £631k in the Bank.
As usual absolutely no details of the breakdown of income and expenditure.

Re: Falkirk v Ayr Utd

Just shows how different opinions can be. The general consensus is that Kidd played well. For some reason I was keeping tabs on him, as I don't like him at f/b, and I reckon he made under 30% pass completion. I thought he was poor throughout and below par, bordering on dreadful. I like him more in ...

These fans forums aren't as much fun as the AGM.
Heard AGM is to be early December.
