Re: Alleged Racism towards Dennon Lewis

As reported on the club website and national media. As if our on field performance wasn’t bad enough we now have a moron or more who think it acceptable to abuse our players because of the colour of their skin and embarrassing us off the pitch. Hopefully the culprit is found and banned. No place fo...

Re: Ross county v falkirk 1st Sept 18

Ayr United turn down 2 bids of £175k for Shankland as he’s a vital part of their team. If only our Board had adopted a similar approach over the years then maybe we’d have got promoted? Instead we now have a total shambles. Maybe the Board will introduce soft loans to somehow get us out of this mess...

Re: The clear-out

I'm sure more will be released when their contracts have ran out. Stop all the knicker wetting and have some patience! But wouldn't it be nice to be on the front foot for once with one or two decent pre-contract signings? Aside from cheering us up after a miserable season, it might also encourage f...

Re: Hartley to rebuild squad in transfer window

Who appears in the “Our Time” posters now? I feel we have a right to know who replaces Fash on that poster.

Re: Jonny Mitchell, the answer at right back?

Great, maybe he's the next talented kid that we can sell to pay off loans/ finance more years of losses in this division? Fingers crossed.

We came up short (again) so lessons need to be learned. Substitutions didn't work at all. Please tell me that this was Bob McHugh's last game for us.

Re: Can we keep this up?

Results aside, what has impressed me a great deal is the step up in performances between roughly Q1 and Q2 of this season. We ground out results in Q1 via uninspiring football. Houston got a lot of stick round these parts for the style of play. Things changed and now we have football to look forwar...

Re: Post Morton

Quite fancy jumping off a cliff after reading all the comments. Had to recheck that it was 1-1 and not 4-0 Morton. We drew away against a team on a high after promotion playing in front of a big crowd full of optimism. It's disappointing to only draw against a team expected to be down near the bott...

Re: Season Tickets

Congratulate the Marketing Team? I'd say a massive congratulations to the Falkirk fans for once more throwing their money at the club in the hope rather than the expectation that we will have a team on the park capable of challenging for the title. We have to expect the unexpected yet again.

They aren't classed as league games in the stats. What I did find out is that he only scored once for Motherwell when he started; which was only 6 times and that was in the league cup. All his league goals for Motherwell came from the bench. Had a really bad injury too last sesson 5 months out with...

Re: Post Cup Final

Life can be cruel. A massive opportunity to win the cup so totally gutted and trying to get some normality into things today. However we were lucky to get to the final and we know that this group of players isn't good enough. That aside you would expect the goalkeeper to do a lot better at both goal...

Re: Houston we have a problem

Give it a rest for heavens sake! Ok last night was a bad result and we are badly in need of striking options but sack the manager? Some signings did not work out but that is always the case year after year. Some you win some you don't . Morgan was a panic measure that did not pay off. Let's see how...
