Re: Thistle away

Both teams badly need a win to get their season up and running.

Having said that, it will probably end in a draw.

Re: Signings on the way

According to the bookies we are 6th favourites to win the league this season.

.....and unfortunately, they rarely get it that wrong.

Re: Vs St Johnstone

Defence played well and the midfield were tidy enough

However we didn`t offer any threat up front, probably because we were playing 4,5,1

Re: vs Montrose

Early days but that was a really poor performance.

These are the games we should be winning comfortably and putting down a marker for the rest of the season.

Aberdeen Friendly

A last minute winner gave Aberdeen a 1 0 victory over the Bairns

Not a bad result against a strong Aberdeen X1.

Re: TNS GAME

We fielded 2 different teams in each half and both lost 1-0.

You'd think it would make sense to do it within the timeframe of the season rather than calendar year given the 31/12/18 - 1/1/19 scenario.
That's far too sensible an idea.

Re: Sibbald signs for Ferranti thistle

I cant understand why the club didnt just tell his agent we were invoking the option and that was that. There shouldnt have been any need for negotiations as that was done last summer when he signed the contract with the option. We really should`ve held all the aces here and yet we`ve still managed...

Re: 18/19 Predictions and Premonitions

I just cant see where all this blind optimism is coming from and will wait and see what our squad looks like in July.

To predict we will go from 3rd bottom to league winners is a huge leap of faith.

What is the story with Sibbald ?

I thought we had an option in his contract to retain him for another year.

Re: The clear-out

We're going to have to have players to play in the reserves that can cover a number of positions. Better having the likes of Kidd and O'Hara on cheap wages than wasting cash on wages and signing on fees to bring in others to do the same job. Begs the question, why do we need a reserve team.

I know I keep saying it, but next season we really need to set down a marker of winning the first game of the season for the first time in over a decade.
It doesn't help when all your opening fixtures are away from home because there is a pop concert at your stadium. :flame:

Re: Our Season in Quarters

The headline should read "Our Season in Tatters".

After all the promises of "Our Time", lets hope finishing 3rd bottom has been a wake up call for everyone at the club.

Re: Club Statement

According to the Falkirk Herald, Paul Hartley has dismissed talk of having "the largest ever playing budget " next season.

He says his playing budget will be "about the same as what it was last season".

Yes any increase could be fully or partially negated by players under contract however I would be calling for his head if we didn’t at least go close to winning the league if this was not the case. Given the circumstances I would still fully expect 4th place at worst no excuses. He needs to deliver...

Re: revised season expectations ??

In a season which started with such high expectations (Our Time), I will be happy if we finish in 8th position.

We can then clear the decks and forget about a season which has been the worst since the Totten "relegation" season.
