Re: Houston extends contract to 2018

Would you say that Vaulks and Leahy haven't improved in the 18 months along with many others including Baird and probably even Kerr from what I saw of them at previous clubs? With us having quite a young team still I'd say the ability to improve players is key for a manager at Falkirk which Houston ...

Re: Falkirk v Hibernian 17th Jan

From where I was I thought he made a good save and was unlucky no falkirk player followed it in but I may be wrong. Beyond that he had a couple of good saves and looked confident claiming at least one cross. His improvement through this season has been huge.

Re: Transfer strategy

What i'd like to see us also do now is try to extend the contracts of key players who have deals until 2017. Let's do business early so nobody is in the last year leaving for free or cheaply. If we can keep this team together and add more quality to the squad then there could be some very good times...

Re: Falkirk v Hibernian 17th Jan

Didn't really feel like we were at the races today for reason. Mark Kerr was superb in the middle of the park but apart from him and Rogers no one really shone. To still come away with a deserved draw therefore says a lot about the team. No reason we can't go and win at ibrox and keep ourselves in t...

Re: Dundee v Falkirk Scot Cup 9th Jan

Is it just me then who is quite happy these games were postponed? We were given plenty notice so can't see many folks having already made the trip before finding out it was off, it gives the players who were reportedly carrying knocks a week off to recover, it saves a tough competitive game that, al...

Re: Can we keep this up?

Why shouldn't we keep it up? We have a good team, have only lost twice this season and should be looking to beat anyone as we've proven we can do. Time to drop this wee team mentality and start aiming to win every game and mount a title challenge.

Re: Falkirk v Livi

Would like to see a draw today which means they both drop 2 points. I agree with this so a win tomorrow can have us end the year just a point off the top. Unlike some of the posts on the other thread I thought Saturdays game was a lethargic performance but to be honest, in the conditions it was pla...

Re: Falkirk vs Rangers

I think that result was largely down to the tactics being spot on. Great containment then quick breaking when it was right to. Brilliant result and hopefully now we start to realise that we should be aiming to beat everyone in this league and really challenging the two teams ahead of us!

Re: League cup revamp

The bonus point idea is f*cking ridiculous.

Hopefully the clubs agree on a £40 group stage ticket option which covers all the games since gates are split. Probably as wishful thinking as the bigger league with less games.

No wonder other fans see us as a "mini Rangers" totally agree, stadium looked like shoot ibrox at the weknd To clari...

Re: Post Alloa

Houstie made a good comment on the radio after the game that if you take the Hibs game as being from the last round of matches as it was rescheduled, we're 15 points from 15 in the second quarter. Can't get ahead of ourselves but the trip to Easter Road is now looking really tasty. Was worried to be...

Re: Remembrance Edition programme

Marketing for what? To make pennies by shifting a few extra programmes? Aye pretty much this. There were also flyers about for Rememberance Day hospitality. I thought the ceremony before the game was right and I'm pleased the respects of the silence were extended to the victims of the attack in Par...

Is this because the team are doing ok the now you're needing to find something else to whinge about? Mountain out of a molehill.

Re: Falkirk V Hibs

Gubbed.

I honestly can't tell if Kennyboy is joking or not.

Anywho, a win tonight of any kind would be very welcome. Reckon Stubbs will rest players because it's a midweek game and he thinks he's the manager of a big team and that's what they do. Could work in our favour.

A Motherwell fan at my work has said that McGee apparently wasn't even one of the 75 applicants and was approached by Motherwell! Hardly a shocker that a Scottish football club board disregards fans opinion I guess.

Re: Morton pre game

Houston will play for a draw to get us 'back on track' after the defeat to rangers. Although far from delighted I was accepting of the draw with Queen of the South to stop/slow the decline. By most accounts the performance against Rangers was improved the next week so I would expect a win here and ...

Whether I was at the game or not he could have said anything to him and I wouldn't have heard as I would have been sitting at the other end of the pitch. From the video Pete posted it's pretty clear what Rogers wanted. From the other highlights it isn't clear but I thought he tried to catch it and m...
