Re: Scott McDonald Signed?

Post match says he was close to signing but was too busy with media work what a shame could have made the difference. If his concentration is on media work then I doubt he’d be worth us signing, as bad and desperate as we are. Need players who are 100% focused on fighting for survival and not a jou...

Re: How to stop the rot?

Although I expect the inevitable and possible justified ‘not interested in scotland’ and ‘**** the sfa’ Comments, isn’t it just another kick in the baws for falkirk/Scotland fans that the national team seem to have some sort of psychic **** up mentality. Sh1t defence, no proven goal scorer and just...

Re: Tom Dallison

I’ll take that! :clink:

In all seriousness though it’s not too hard to have reservations about these guys when you look at their backgrounds.

Sammut was the only one I was genuinely excited about.

4 players away

Just realised Froxy, Greenwood and Mackin and cancelled Turners loan.

How much more can we clear out?

Re: New TV deal

And so you'll be happy when we return the portion of the (greater than before) prize money we will be entitled to, as 99% of televised matches are from the Premiership? It's all just dumped into the same pot and that's fair, surely? How much extra money do the former SFL clubs receive from the top ...

New TV deal

Just reading this about the new TV deal. Totally shocking that the lions share of the money goes to the top flight but hardly surprising and we only have ourselves to blame for signing the merger deal, all for a heavily weighted play-off structure. The thing is that it could end up costing clubs mon...

Re: Project Brave

... I guess you have to weigh all these things before deciding if the academy was worth it. I know which model I thought was worth it :roll: Well let’s look at it this way, this last 2 times we won this division there was no academy(that I know of) and we still managed to emerge young talent such a...

Re: Patrick Brough

Looking back on these threads I can understand the excitement to signing a complete unknown but if Hartley signed these players then surely you look at their career history first and question whether they can cut it at our level. Get them in on trial to have a look first hand instead of basis your o...

Re: Tom Dallison

Tom Dallison looked like one of the better Hartley signings but judging by recent comments he's went downhill.

Is he worth keeping?

Just looking back at this thread and how it's aged. Hopefully McKinnon can coax a player out of Lewis. Guess we'll wait and see.

Re: Project Brave

So many players that were on the pathway yet Stenhousemuir didn't want or have the means to continue it either :?: As SJ says, we will never know the truth of what value it actually gave us other than "X number of players were academy graduates" . Cost to maintain versus fees over time is the great...

Re: Who is Richard Mitchell?

Yeah hindsight is a wonderful thing. But maybe a mix of both championship proven players and unknowns might have made more sense. Been a falkirk fan for 34 years and although there’s little chance of getting a stainrod or Latapy these days it would have been more appealing to me anyway to try and g...

Re: Who is Richard Mitchell?

A lot of people on Pie and Bovril were ecstatic at some of the signings. I was hopefuly but very cautious as they were absolute nobodies and had played at a fairly low level. As I had said I’d much rather sign a Gavin Reilly than a complete unknown from down South who’s only played league 1 football...

Re: Falkirk v Dundee Utd 22/9/18

Hopefully all the dreaming about coaching and organising our way out of this have finally been put to bed. Every single player brought in since last season with the exception of Petra needs to be cleared out, and they need to take Muirhead with them. Petra, McGhee and Robson are currently the only ...

Peter Houston now assistant manager of Morton.

Quite a strange one for him but guess he would rather take a step back to keep doing his media work.
