Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

What was the actual conclusion to this? Fans did abuse Lewis but none of it was racial abuse or that it was an overheard conversation?

People seem to be talking about this as though the facts are known but I’ve heard nothing official. Where’s this information coming from?

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

What really gets me is that probably over 95% of our fans are decent people yet the media in recent years is not portraying this - on the contrary. The Dean Shiels incident(s) and this recent regrettable incident, both completely unacceptable as we have all stated, have given the public an unbalanc...

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

Was just a story I heard, could be miles off the truth. Racist language was used although not loud enough to be heard by someone on the pitch. The offender was pulled up at the time but then moved. Lewis/ffc were then informed post match of the incident. Whether Lewis heard it or not is irrelevant,...

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

Unconfirmed reports is that it was a relative of another player who overheard someone loudly using offensive words. Where did that report come from? I read that on P and B as well. If that's true then it makes a bit of sense as to why no-one else heard and to a lack of reaction from Lewis during th...

Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

Have to agree with Jones. If it was audible to Lewis from the pitch then someone else in the stands would surely have heard it, especially if it was more than one person. Was the racist abuse due to his colour of his skin or the fact he's English? I could certainly imagine a shout of go back to Engl...

Re: Scumfermline v Falkirk

On yesterdays performance, I feel we could get by without Petra and Rudden to be honest. Any more though and we should look to postpone. These international games + some injuries really does leave us scraping the barrel. I haven’t seen enough of Rudden to comment but he’s scored 4 goals in 9 appear...

There is a big difference to conscripts fighting in WW1 and WW2 to professional soldiers fighting after 1960, it’s a job, no more deserving of respect than doctors, nurses, fireman and police.

Re: Falkirk vs Ross County

Agree with you about the one minute's silence. Why is it that people feel obliged to do one minute's silence for people that you never met. Not having one doesn't mean you don't care or feel affected by an incident. Also what comfort does it give to people that strangers have held a vigil or Falkirk...

I thought that was a bit odd to be honest. If he gets a minutes silence then why didn't Barry Chuckle?
Who got a minute’s silence?

Re: Falkirk vs Ross County

Clear apathy here when less than 4 hours before kick off there is no thread about tonights game. I considered going but really don’t fancy paying £20 to sit behind the goals and see us get humped by Ross County. I then remembered that I booked tickets to go see Beetlejuice.

It only applies to penalties.

And this was one of the simplest red card decisions you'll ever see. Can't believe anyone is arguing against it.
That’s right it wasn’t a penalty! Getting mixed up there.

Yes clear red card and agree that I can’t understand why anyone would suggest otherwise.

Re: MORTON V FALKIRK - 20/10/18

Isn't the current rule not something along the lines of it only being a straight red if the fouling player makes no genuine attempt to play the ball. May be only if it's the double jeopardy scenario with a penalty but I'm sure that's what it changed to ahead of the World Cup. I don't really care ei...

Agree to disagree :wink: Ultimately Fasan is out this week so every cloud... Come on Nis! Do you only consider it a clear goal scoring opportunity if they are 5 yards out with the full goal gaping? Look at Hyppolytes goal against Rangers. If Foderingham had taken out Hippolyte would you argue that ...

The rule is clear goal scoring opportunity not last man!! If rounding the goaleeper and having an empty net to aim at is not a clear goal scoring opportunity then I don’t know what is!? I stand corrected on the terminology but having watched the incident again the Morton player still has a lot to d...

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...

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

How much more can we clear out?
