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. Really ? When the replacements are likely to be Haber and Lewis ? Don't share ...

No rudden or Petra next week due to internationals?
Seems to be the case. Absolute nightmare that in all honesty, just when there was a bit if hope that a corner might have been turned.

Time for Big Marcus to step up :D :D :D

Re: Scumfermline v Falkirk

First five minutes we were all over the place, Ryan missed a sitter and at that stage it looked like another nightmare afternoon. Fair play, though, we then grew into the game and turned in by far our most solid performance of the season, nothing fancy but there is far more organisation and work rat...

Re: Falkirk v Ayr Utd

Played some reasonable stuff between both boxes but a goalkeeper costing us a goal a game and yet another 90 minutes with not one f*****g shot on target will always be a lethal combination. Irving should have buried that header at the end, terrible miss. Midfield was non existent today, Bauben is mi...

Re: Championship : QotS v Falkirk : 27th October

Is this down to the players or should we be expecting more from the manager? The caveat is that he's inherited the worst collection of dross in the club's history. He's brought in Bauben, who in 45 minutes at Greenock last week actually looked like a footballer, which meant he stood out a mile in t...

Re: First Quarter Report

We have taken 3 points from 27 and have one of the poorest playing squads I have ever seen, In any other business the major shareholders would be taking action but it seems they are sleepwalking towards relegation. What action can they realistically take at this stage to improve our chances of pick...

Re: MORTON V FALKIRK - 20/10/18

Fairly even first half, in that both teams were pretty brutal. Rudden should have done much better with his header. Bauben looked head and shoulders above anyone else on the park, very comfortable on the ball, therefore standing out a mile amongst the dross surrounding him. His substitution at half-...

Re: MORTON V FALKIRK - 20/10/18

With Pete on the need for a new defence. Muirhead, Dallison and Harrison are all woeful. Personally I'd play Mitchell in goal, with a back 4 of Russell-McGhee-Brough-Robson, but think that we will still have the usual keystone kops defence with our Captain leading the way as only he can - badly. Ru...

Re: Falkirk v Scumfermline 06/10/18

There was nothing out there today, absolutely nothing. Eleven empty shirts who just wanted to get through the game and get off. No point in picking out individuals, they are collectively the biggest bunch of dross ever assembled at this level since perhaps the Claude Anelka farce at Raith Rovers man...

Re: v's alloa

Not there, but by all accounts a decent enough performance, certainly 2nd half and a deserved 3 points, which I'll gladly take, regardless of the opposition. Good to see Rudden get a couple of goals, and him and Petrivicius at least appear to be offering us some threat up front. McGhee seemingly pla...

Re: How to stop the rot?

If we can't beat Alloa then collectively the players and manager should simply quit, if they haven't already done that. You're kidding, right? He's only just been appointed and has on his hands the hardest job of any Falkirk manager I can ever remember. In an ideal world, there would be plenty of o...

Re: How to stop the rot?

I think the pattern for the season has been set. This isn't a blip or a slow start. We cannot complain about bad luck or crap refereeing. We've played six matches in the league, four in the league cup and two in the Irn Bru and you'd struggle to identify a decent performance, perhaps outwith the fir...

Re: vs Ayr Utd :Post Match

First half was the best we have played all season (not hard admittedly), despite another weird team selection. Closed down well, cut off any supply line to Shankland, workrate was noticeably higher. Not great, but a vast improvement. For the first goal Irving played in Petravicius, he crossed to the...

Re: FALKIRK 0 1 NOMADS

I actually thought we were the better team today and especially in the 2nd half albeit without really troubling the goalie. If the defence hadnt switched off then the game would have finished a draw. The lack of goals is a major concern but the team at least looked far more threatening today compar...

I hope he can do what Hartley did and get some loan deals in. Ship many of them out in January. The emergency loan window is no longer an option, so he won't be in a position to do what Hartley did in signing the likes of Longridge and Tummilty at the back end of last year prior to the January tran...

Re: Ross county v falkirk 1st Sept 18

Worst start to a league season since 1956/57. 0 points, 1 goal in 4 games. Frightening. By all accounts a bit more fight about the team but god, if we're clinging to that, it just demonstrates the depths to which we have sunk. What a job McKinnon has on his hands with this bunch.
